<quoted text>So the words of the bible are not perfect? I could have sworn on another post you attested your faith believed they were. Now which is it?
If the Satan could influence writers of the words in today's bible, why on earth would you take any of the words as truth just due to it being in the bible? If Satan could affect the words, why could he not affect whole books?

The lack of a consistent standard is why I have no faith the bible is reflecting true events.
I have never said the Bible is inerrant.

This is why the Holy Ghost is important. It is also why there are so many interpretations of the same passages.

Your arrogance is extreme and you demonstrated it here clearly.
See it as you wish. You have not shown me anything impressive with your knowledge of deep doctrine of Christianity. Therefore I don't think you are qualified to tell a Christian what they believe. If me pointing out ignorance on your part looks like arrogance on my part, that just means I must have hit a nerve.

<quoted text>Well, see Michael Jackson looked at the man in the mirror and asked him to change his ways. God made man in his own image (mirror) and asked him to change his ways (and killed them all for not doing it).

God is Michael Jackson. If you read the OT you'll see references all over the place referring to God, therefore Michael Jackson.

You can't assert that one person is actually a different entity then go back to all mentions of that entity and claim it was prophecy. That is, in a word, nuts.
Ok, dude, seriously? You are going to tell me that you can't see all the prophecies that foretell Christ? Even though His name is not mentioned?
Jesus is the only person that ever lived that has had any claim to fulfilling the prophecies that only the Son of God could perform, because He was not simply a man. Jesus had to fulfill all prophecies mentioned in the OT. The only reason Jews didn't believe Him is because they misunderstood that His kingdom was not on this earth like they thought.

Please just google the prophesies that foretell the coming of Jesus. This is so easy to look up.

SP's language was a bit over the top, so I suppose it could have gotten him banned but I never saw Ummm say anything distasteful.
On the contrary, his posts were very well-spoken, educated and intelligent. I miss them both though. Couple of interesting guys.

<quoted text>Yeah, Mark is definitely far down the miracle scale compared to the others. And I love that the women who entered the empty tomb said nothing to no one. In other gospels aren't the people proclaiming everything loudly? In this one doesn't Jesus even say not to tell people about him? Or am I also remembering that one wrong?

God, I do NOT want to read the Bible again. It is a terrible piece of literature.

You're asking someone to get awfully specific with a really vague book...He gets one sequence of events wrong and you want him to suffer through that text again. It's all about the pain and suffering, eh?

That's because atheism is a stance on the claim that a god or gods exist. It is not a 12-step program for people with addictions.

Did you not get that memo?

I can't read the rest of your post because you don't understand where to put periods, commas, and spaces. It's like trying to decipher hieroglyphs written by an insane person and then realizing the thing they wrote is not worth reading in the first place.

Yes, I've read all about the prophecies that allegedly foretell Jesus. They are far from compelling. Basically some old people said some vague stuff and modern readers map their own desires and needs onto them.

Exactly like I did with Michael Jackson, but with a lot more time and energy put into the process.

Look up modern vs. ancient interpretation and you'll get a sense of what I'm trying to say. Look up the ridiculous mental acrobatics that apologists have to do in order to make sense of the Abraham and Isaac story, for example. Or the way in which apologists will interpret the scriptures to make genocides seem both necessary and moral.

Then tell me that prophecies of Jesus are still compelling.

I mean seriously, was it too hard for your god to whisper the name of Jesus into somebody's ear?

<quoted text>First, the theory of evolution is believed by many god believers, so your whole premise is provably a lie.
The Catholic church officially says evolution is truth. Now it claims the mechanism is god, but that is just their view of how evolution works.
Now I know you hate Catholicism but they do believe in god. Now are you going to continue to lie to make your case?
And Eve didn't listen to God, but fell to satan's Lies...
Go figure... The Bible speaks about Believers believing a lie!

My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill.
Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter.
She said,'you gave me too much money.' I said,'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back.
She sighed and went to get the manager, who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said 'We're sorry but we could not do that kind of thing.'
The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change.
Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.

My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco.
She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.'
He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,
'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?'
To which I replied,'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?'
He smiled knowingly and nodded,'That's why we ask.'
Happened in Birmingham , Ala.
IDIOT SIGHTING
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street.
I was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of mine. She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Appalled, she responded,'What on earth are blind people doing driving?!'
She was a probation officer in Wichita , KS

At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the company due to 'downsizing,'
our manager commented cheerfully,'This is fun. We should do this more often.'
Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.
This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.

Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.
It's pronounced "Ledasha".
When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, "the dash don't be silent."
SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please remember to pronounce the dash.
If dey axe you why, tell dem de dash don't be silent.

Inasmuch as you,Duquette and the other Atheists that post on this website are unable to understand that which is written therein,which you misinterpret,quote out of context and as proven recently,make claims that are false,then you should not read the bible.
You that claim that we who believe are afflicted by delusions,in case you havent't heard,scientific studies confirm that nonbelievers are afflicted by a higher rate of mental problems than those who beliece,are more likely to become addicted to drugs ,alcohol and more likely to become suicidial.
There are those who will attest to the fact that their belief in God cured them from their drug and alcohol addiction.
There are those who will attest that there belief in God prevented them from committing suicide..
I have yet to hear anyone testify that by converting to Atheism they were able to combat their addictions or deal effectively with their mental or social problems.
What you guys need to do is,knowing that unbelief is causing such a problem within those in your community,try and figure out some way where you can be of assistance to these poor souls.
Right now,if an Atheist has a mental problem he can wait for it to go away,call on the government or turn to A church for assistance,while those who created the problem continue spreading their poison unabated...
It is no wonder that polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans put Atheists at the bottom of the list when it comes to trustworthiness....
"I have yet to hear anyone testify that by converting to Atheism they were able to combat their addictions or deal effectively with their mental or social problems."

Well, you just have not looked. There are lots of message boards and websites with the stories of people that have left religion and the benefits it has given them.

Unfortunately those sites are also full of people that have, or would like to come out as atheist and the rejection and pure hate they receive from people that are supposed to love and accept them. Yeah, that causes some emotional distress. But most have decided that the freedom they feel inside is worth it. They do have to work through losing their whole support system and that can be quite a challenge.

Here is one story. There are thousands of others out there:

http://www.thinkatheist.com/group/yourstory/f...

"And what's more, letting go of God helped me psychologically. I've dealt with depression most of my life, and I think a lot of it was due to guilt I felt from my religion. Getting rid of superstition helped me realize that I wasn't a bad person at all and I had nothing to feel guilty about. I could be a good person without God, and that realization was so freeing to me. Now I feel normal, and I couldn't ask for anything better than that."

The number of studies that I have cited all point to unbelievers and their high suicide rate,drug and alcohol addiction and other mental maladies.
