YOU Need to get your nose into some books and get an education. Start with the origin of Christianity that will be enough to make you shut up.Just a final observation of Topix atheists and a suggestion to them.
When you "study" something to become "learned", and "in the know", you have your head stuck in a book. Which makes it very hard to "observe" what is really happening around you.
You are directed to which books to read. The "proper ones" to be enlightened with. This also applies to old religious works as well as the new "scientific" religions.
Who does the directing? What makes them so much superior to you to do such?
As a physical being you are part of a larger system. A facet, not a something new and unique. Humanity is a derivative of foregoing processes, most of which we can't see from here. The universe created us, we didn't just pop out of nowhere. You have the "physical" linkage as well as the "mental" linkage derived from such. Mankind is a rutabaga with illusions. You as an individual is just a temporary localized collection of energy. There is a larger scheme of things to fit into when that localization is ended. That is the make or break for continued "existence" on a comfortable level. Let's say you have to think big and be able to fit into a new scheme of things. You can't do that believing this is all there is, and what is in it for you. It's a conditioning process.
When you are young you are cared for. That is when parents try to protect and prepare you. When you become prime you discover that others just want your money or your ass. You will be leaving this womb eventually.
Get your nose out of the books and look around.
My observation on theist posters in this forum.
There isn't one Christian that properly represents the Bible and it's teachings in this forum.
they remain filled with hatred of anyone who doesn't buy into their silly superstitions.
In fact few even understand the Bible and make up things as they go along.
Krishna - Allah - Buddha are all disappointed in their behavior and have suggested they switch faiths.
Zeus doesn't give a rats ass because he runs everything and enjoys the amusement.
