No, you'd rather be an actual slave to a master who is trying to drive you crazy.

But, seriously Joel. Are you sure that the guy was actually trying to fleece you of your inheritance? We see the Christians trying to do that all the time. Maybe your yogi bear was trying to do the same.

But I have left him after discovering what a devil he is, while you still cling to the devil of your cult.

So, when are you going to dump an evil cult like Judaism?

He has enough of his own - running into millions of dollars - since he hails from a seriously wealthy family.

In fact, he'd go out of his way to make me comfortable by ordering my favorite things which are expensive stuff when compared to the ordinary stuff that common people use.

Not once was money mentioned.

I thought the Christian missionaries con the poor by offering them monetary incentives so that they convert to Christianity.

I guess you've never seen Christian televangelists.

My mystical experiences (that're spontaneously continuing till this day) are a gift from Sri Aurobindo who has thrice appeared to me in waking trances.

Whereas that rogue had blocked certain faculties of my mind and put a strong adverse occult force on me to draw out all those mystical energies that were coming into me (courtesy Sri Aurobindo) and was feeding off them like a vampire and this created great suffering in my life that killed my dad, mom and sister and almost ruined me...

I don't wish to talk about it.

I've heard they're multimillionaires fooling the brainwashed flock into donating money. I wouldn't know much about them.

"Irrationality and opposition to science have always spread through those who profit from exploiting human fears of the unknown. The religious ones spread terror with their terrible threats of eternal hell, and unlimited suffering if we deviate from some imagined true path. Today the vendors of spiritual bliss are doing roaring business, preying upon weak minds and spirits, and dwelling upon the fear of death and the unknown."

"Studying religion will not bring any one closer to scientific truth. I know of no religious text Torah, Bible, or Quran that provides the basis of a scientific theory or experiment, or that has led to the making of a machine or a piece of scientific equipment. The greater the distance we put between science and religion, the better."

Do you think you can convert me back? If so, here's my challenge to you. If you can explain the geneology issue to me in a way that actually makes sense, then, as a reward, I will give you the opportunity to further proselytize to me. I'll even share an email address with you that will allow you to reach out to me directly. But you must earn that privilege first by addressing the geneology issue in a satisfactory manner. Are you up to the challenge?
HughBe--- get the PRINCIPLE. Do you want to become a Christian?

COR---You seem to forget, I already was a Chrisitian

HughBe--- Thanks for the timely reminder. Based on my observation you seem a natural for Judaism. It has answers to suit your desires.

Perhaps they tested the temperature on the inside of the skulls of a sample of rabbis.

So you decline the challenge. No surprise there that you come up empty handed (as empty as the promises your religion makes).

Virgin birth is a myth. There are countless stories in various cultures that talk of famous personalities being born to virgins. It's pure myth and an attempt to create a larger than life personality.
There have been reported virgin births in history, but the offspring are always female. I think what happens is that the woman basically clones herself. The term "virgin" in Isaiah 7:14 is a mistranslation of the Hebrew. The word is "almah" which simply means a young woman. The sign was not the childs birth, it was the naming of him Emanuel which means "God with us". Jesus' name is not Emanuel. Jarrett Lawrence Emanuel was born on April 4, 1984.!984 was the "acceptable year of the Lord" Isaiah 61:2.

Didn't accept the challenge I see. Didn't think you would.

Jesus was conceived out of wedlock and is a bastard child. We do not know who his father was, they didn't have DNA testing back then. The NT does say that Joseph was not his father. It is thru Joseph that the lineage back to David is traced. Mary was a Levite. You can't have it both ways. The Messiah was supposed to be a descendant of David. If Joseph was not Jesus' father, he was not a descendant of David.

Why don't you first condemn the biblical prophets for their vile teachings and barbarous acts and then attack the rabbis who evidently take their cue from the former?
