Okay,so you DON'T have a problem with pro-abortion organizations soliciting money for their cause. It's only pamplets that show a human life with a caption that we are not "just" cells,that irks you and leads you to come onto topix to show your true colors.

Interesting.

Since when is abortion "education" btw? Education that belongs in childrens Halloween bags nevertheless.

I don't think the point is to degrade wives/mothers/homemakers, but to simply point out that we can do anything we want with our lives and are not just relegated to those roles.
The flip side is people who say ignorant things like how we belong in the kitchen or we should be home taking care of kids. We're people, just like men, and are not just put on this Earth to be breeding stock and glorified maids. I'm NOT saying that is what wives and mothers are, but that is not our sole purpose. Those aren't what we "should" be doing but like anything else is a choice.
Well,you are very much incorrect when you thought that this..so called.."point" was not intended to degrade wives/mothers/homemakers. Ocean clearly called it enslavement and Leonie also put down being a wife and a mother,referring to it as being a slave. I've had many conversations with Ocean about this.

Are you afraid to admit that we *don't* belong in a kitchen? Is being in the kitchen an insult? Not to me it isn't. We all have to eat. Cooking is a necessity and a passion to some. Even an art. Chefs cook for a living,which serves people.

We have children but somehow think that we *shouldn't* be the ones raising them? Is being home with our children an insult? Is it enslavement? are some ABOVE the task?

We call chefs and childcare owners/workers "educated professional" but cooking and taking care of our families with the "mother" title is the bottom of the barrel,slave masters job. LOL WOW!

Question: WHY isn't or shouldn't it be our "SOLE PURPOSE IN LIFE" as how you stated it in such a derogatory fashion?

I don't recall referring to paul as an atheist.
Since he wasn't.
What he was, was very very religious, and thought he was doing the work of God.
Those men who flew the planes into the buildings, on 911 were very very religious as well, thinking they were doing the work of God.
When paul met God on that road, and yeilded to Him, then he went from being a very religious "Godless " man, to a Godly man, that had very little tolerance for religion.
I don't think that Paul was part of a Godly religion to begin with. He joined forces with some who where not "of God",therefore,displaying unGodly behavior. Was his belonging to this group intentionally meant to be anti-God/Christ? Who knows. Only God know,I suppose.

"BY THE FRUITS YOU WILL KNOW THEM"

When Paul had his conversion,he indeed followed him religiously(he became a Christian. He then belonged to Christs church here on earth. What he became intolerant about was unGodly religions where they didn't obey the teachings of God/Christ...hence,his making of so many enemies,..as well as followers :)

To me Jesus was probably a very charismatic and assertive person who made an impression on a great many people. I think he was probably a pacifist with an idealized vision of how civilized people should interact in a world where we have our humanity in common. Sort of a "we're all in this together so we should all just get along" philosophy. However, if Jesus was walking around telling folks he was the Son of God or the King of Kings then he may have been a touch delusional, too.
Even to those who didn't follow him,it still was recorded that he healed the sick,raised the dead,performed many miracles. He SURE did make an impression :)

I gladly admit that I dont know how the universe began. If only others would put aside their "beliefs" and personal bias and admit things that they truly dont know.
You now gladly acknowledge that you DON'T KNOW how the universe began yet the sum of your existence on this forum has been to degrade, humiliate, dismiss and reject with extreme prejudice, the notion by those who also acknowledge that they don't know for sure and can offer now concrete proof, but whose faith and belief tells them that the universe is the result of intelligent design and that intelligent design was initiated by a Christian deity.
We now know that you know not of what you speak.

If you admit you do not know how the universe began then it is self evident that you cannot be certain how it did NOT begin.

You may now cease and desist with your uninformed attacks on those you now acknowledge, may in fact be right.

How did you manage to twist my post into some freaky mess to suit your bitchy sensibilities, crazy lady? Unicef doesn't try to propagandize girls to have or to not have abortions, doesn't show graphics to kids that parents obviously find inappropriate for their children. Your wonderful anti-choice champion here did. Even Ink said she's sick for doing so. Get yourself together, snippy. I clearly wrote that I feel it is inappropriate for either side to propagandize this way... either side, I wrote, hello! When Christian ministries, with their chikdren at their sides, asks for alms at my door, which they do, often (I live in fundie country, baby) I have no problem. However, they aren't passing out inapropriate graphics to children. Get it? If you don't understand the difference, that's your problem. Enough, now. The subject has been gone over and over, ad nauseum. You don't get to reinvent my post for your stupid argument. Move along, you nut.

Right, so, because someone wrote it, it must be true. Please. Christians rely on faith, not facts, to shore up their beliefs. To expect people to take the Bible as factual evidence of Jesus Christ's status as the son of a god, as a miracle worker, as a savior of mankind, shows you a fool. Without blind faith, religion cannot live. And I mean any religion, before you try to twist my words.

Pretty big and beautiful "ant farm",wouldn't ya say? God intended us to be happy. Man,"shook the glass" deliberately through his(our)sinful nature. Free choice/will is a WONDERFUL gift. UGLY when abused. The innocent suffer because of it as well as those who are doing the abusing of it. Let's put the blame where it belongs. Jesus died for our sins to free us from the bonds of sin. THAT'S a loving God.
The whole out look on life is sad and dreary. No joy, no hope and very dissatisfied.

This is the thing a lot of you don't get...I, and others, are not diminishing your beliefs but are reacting to the Christian contention that you have the truth or know for a fact that an unseen God exists. Believe what you want, but that doesn't mean the bible can't be discussed, debated or dissected.
If you are uncomfortable with people bringing up discrepancies and contradictions in the bible then maybe it's because you know the bible is in fact quite inconsistent and you simply don't wish to acknowledge that to yourself.
Bring up anything you like as long as it is factual.

There are some inconsistancies but you never take into account who said what and whom they were saying it. The speakers covered a long time and different peoples. What Isiah would say to the Jews would be very different than what Paul would say to the gentiles.

Also you expect the bible to be easily translated into English. Some English words weren't found in Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek or Latin which would also account for discrepencies.

You are saying that wives and mothers are breeding stock and glorified maids. What do you do in life that is more important than raising great children?

Babygirl, you are this stupid, apparently. It's not Jesus' existence I need proper evidence of, but that he was the son of a god, and performed all the miracles, etc that you blithely claim as fact. If you are claiming that religious beliefs are based upon facts, rather than upon blind faith, you are even more a fool than we know you to already be.

He was a religious Jew from a lineage of pharisees.

I didn't twist your post at all. You came on here repeating what you heard about Pro-lifers.You had an agenda and it backfired on you. You not only don't have a problem with UNICEF using children to solicit monies for them for their pro-abortion agenda on Halloween,but you make excuses for it(even calling it "education")

So,yeah,you are a phony when you say that you *think*that it is inappropriate for either side. Your name calling doesn't help your cause either btw. Just sayin..

Have a great day!

No I claimed that he lived and was a real person in response to claims that he didn't exist.

What you believe about him is up to you. His followers and disciples have written about his ministry on earth and you can surely choose to not believe any of it but many people saw for themselves and did believe . That doesn't make them stupid.

""""" Right,so,because someone wrote it,it must be true."""" ""

Is that your feeling on your history books as well? After all, "someone" wrote it as well.
