My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

I like James Randi's version of communication from the afterlife. The 'spirits' never say where Aunt Millie's last will is hidden. Instead they make nonsensical comments like, "Your nephew's name begins with a letter in the alphabet between ''b' and 'w'......... LOL
Yes, indeed... there never is new information from the "dead", is there?

Imagine that...

So why does God defy the logical rule "everything has a beginning."?
Because God is not a "Thing"!! He is the one who created every "Thing".

That is why every "Thing" has a beginning and an end, but God never had a beginning and shall never have an end.

We respect people's right to sexual freedom while you think it's a good idea to kill them.
You are a barbarian.
"You are a woman. Your husband is violent. He rapes and hits you on a regular basis. You fear he will do the same to your daughters. You never agreed to marry him in the first place but you had no choice. You want out – you want a divorce. You want this fear to go away – you are tired of feeling nothing but fear from morning to night. You are tired of the humiliation. He treats you like a slave. He demeans and degrades you. He physically and sexually humiliates you. Your confidence is gone, you feel worthless.
There is only way to save yourself (and your daughters) and that is to get out. You need a divorce, but there is one problem. This can only happen if your husband agrees to it. Either that or a group of clerics who believe that he has every right to treat you the way he does agree to it. "You are trying to break up a family" they'll say (you are breaking up a family, not him). "You're so selfish" they'll say.
That's that – no divorce for you. You'll have to take the abuse because you are worthless anyway and it would be a sin for you to claim otherwise. Too cruel to be real? No. This is how sharia law works. It is also similar to how Catholicism worked when it had political power.
Women in secular countries don't have to put up with this; because they live in secular countries."

She's not the one advocating the execution of people who wish to have sexual relationships.

"You are homosexual and you know that only a same sex relationship will make you happy. You are free to have same sex relationships, you can have a civil partnership, your rights at work are protected and your right to equal access to goods and services also.

The idea of the police knocking on your door to interfere in your relationship and question what you are doing with your partner is ridiculous. That is because you live in a secular country.

If you lived in a theocracy, you would be murdered in the most appalling ways by the state. Just as happens in Islamic states (which are not secular) today, and as happened in Europe when religions held political power."

How are things in Saudi Arabia anyway? Have you deported any more men from the country because they are too handsome? LOL

That is why I say, that woman is mentally sick and unbalanced.

She should see a Mental physician, before advising others.

You should stick to the topic we are discussing. Once we complete that then we can discuss others. I do not like having two or more discussions with same man on one thread.

No one comes back from the dead...like no one visits earth before they are born.

But to assume that what we do during our life on earth has no effect at all, and when one dies, every one becomes the same, is the most unreasonable and illogical thing to say.

To say that Hitler and his 6 million Jews victims became same after they died, is to say a very illogical and unreasonable thing to say.

And to believe that once our GWB the Great dies, he would become same as those hundreds of thousands of innocent people he killed in Iraq and Afghanistan is also a very illogical thing to say.

This universe is NOT working on injustice.

Let's see now:

You think that killing people for having extra-marital sex is good.

You also think that killing homosexuals is good.

You also think that denying women equality with men is good and that should they seek it then they deserve to be killed.

Anything else?

Oh yes - you think that handsome men should be deported from Islamic countries.

You're a barbarian - crawl back into your cave.

So you already know how God is going to judge you.
You can do no wrong now, can you?
By your dreams, you can do the utmost evil on the world, but you are absolutely sure you are going to heaven.
We can come to a compromise - let us infidels put a bullet in your head. You win because you get to heaven sooner. We win because why take a chance on the holy evil that you may unleash. And if you were supposed to do some iota of good, well, God is merciful and give us another chance, right?
All religious people get a mild smile. Unfortunately they don`t be satisfied with it. So they always started wars up to the present time!

<quoted text>That's why we need God and why God came 29 years ago to end the cold war. There's a saying in the NT which probably comes from the old, "Except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved alive" If the Messiah wasn't here we'd all be dead.
If the atomic inferno is here (and I am sure it will come!)we will be dead too!
