Brain damage. There is no getting around this: you have religious brain damage.

So severe, you cannot learn anything.

Pathetic.

<quoted text>well now that is interesting. you want to spin your own version of a story that you claim is a myth whose only source is a book that you claim are a bunch of lies. yet you want to make up your own version of this story and then reject the proof that the actual version disagrees with you.
i still like your creativity with dorothy and the wizzard. i will use it some day but i promise to give you credit.

You atheists must live terrible lives.
Let me ask you something.
How many people depend on you?
How many people do you help every day?
How many live have you helped out?
How many people have you feed this month?
How much money have you spent to help others less fortunate than you?

I for one can answer that I have done all I ask today.
My life is a very good and happy life. I live it to the fullest without any regrets. My family is the best I could have ever asked for. My marriage is the best I could have wished for. My job is one of the best anyone could have. My business is doing great. I have never be as well off as this until I realized that my past false beliefs were holding my happiness back i.e. religion.

Just about all of the atheists I know in person are successful and happy. I guess the believer thinks without the sky wizard we must be miserable?

Yep.

Godbottery is brain damage, and brain-damaged folk cannot be happy, can they?

Witness the comment immediately previous to mine: a miserable godbot desperately trying to be what he must think is funny.

It is pretty sad to witness such obvious depression in another person.

But there you go: religious faith is brain damage.

NO! Damn near every one I know is happy.
You seem to have such abhorrence for others why is that?
You are the one that came to this forum with a preconception.

Christian fundamentalists like him hate non believers. He takes it as a person insult that we don't pray to his Jewsus.

They can deny it their fundie faith all they want here but their actions tell the tale.

Agreed life is too short to be miserable. My old hospital still calls me to visit non believers who are losing the battle to a number of diseases. Making them smile, laugh or just spending some time with them and letting them talk without some idiot Christian trying to convert them is great and they really appreciate it.

I know that goes against the fundie lie about atheists and their death bed conversions.

fine, but that doesn't show that she was literally burnt.
1st of all a female anything was not to be offered as a burnt offering. it was contrary to the law. his offering would have been meaningless and rejected by God.[Lev. 22]
2nd of all he had options which would fulfill his vow. she could be redeeemed [$] and set aside as holy.[Lev. 27]
as "holy" she would be restricted from all work and would live a separated life as a virgin.
the context of the story would indicate that that is probably what happened.
3rdly jewish tradition celebrated her for four days every year.

hardly the sad story that you are trying to portray.

"And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her [according] to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man." nowhere does it say that he broke jewish law and burned his daughter. but it does say that that the vow was completed and she never new a man.

Bible fan fiction is fun eh? Listen barely sorry to burst your apologetic fan fiction but uhh see we have maps and documentation of Japhia from centuries before Jesus was said to live and it's still documented in the exact same spot centuries after he was said to live. Josephus chronicled it in detail in his works and he was born decades after Jesus' supposed undocumented secularly execution.
For your fan fiction to work you have to be claiming Japhia for a short time Jesus was said to live changed it's name to Nazareth and then immediately changed it's name back to Japhia and the name Nazareth completely erased for over 100 years. All the while everyone deciding not to document any of this.
That is the only way Jesus could have come from Nazareth.
<quoted text>

and i responded;
"do we? can you link one?"
should i try it in spanish?
how about a little contextual comprehension on your part?

show us a map that indicates that japhia was always in the same location. i never said that it became nazareth and then reverted to japhia. i suggested that the old location of japhia may have become the original nazareth. but neither on is now in their original location.
