Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Yes, I agree with that. It's talking about the Syrians and how greedy they'll become.
So greedy in fact that one brother will eat up another, like he's eating his own flesh.
Watching atheists cherry pick the bible is fun.
Got some more?
We're not sure why you lie about god being real. It might have something to do with your mental illness of faith.

Family members of the Transit police officer who was shot and critically wounded early Friday morning while chasing the two men wanted for the Boston Marathon bombings are thanking people for their prayers.

Officer Richard Donohue, Jr., 33, remained at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge on Saturday, where he was in serious condition, according to a statement released Saturday by his family.

That's how I figure it!
It seems that every good christian knows which laws apply and to whom; just ask one! That is why there is only one christian sect! They all know what god really really meant. They asked the holy spirit to come into their hearts and when it did, it lifted the veil of ignorance and they all believe, excuse me, they all know what god meant.
RiversideRedneck says, "Christians are not under the Ten Commandments, as Mosaic Law, but the principals are still very valid."
I would have thought, "Thou shall not rape a child." would have been a very good commandment. More than just a valid principle.
How can,'Thou shall not kill." be a law when god says, go kill every thing in that village? You cannot tell me not to kill, then tell me that I have to kill!!! Come on, god! Think!! LOL!
And therein lies the difficulty.

Christianity claims a membership of about 2 billion - but in order to attain that number, they have to include groups that they'd otherwise cheerfully consign to the flames.
Catholics, Mormons, JWs, Christian Scientists, snake-wigglers, Westboro Baptists...

The truth of the matter is that Christians don't trust anyone who's not in their own particular cult - and they're unsure of the doctrinal purity of the guy in the next pew.

What it comes down to is two billion cults-of-one.

Christians did not attain that number by including or excluding anyone. The number is arrived at by simply counting those calling themselves "christian".

You are a blithering idiot.

Ironically, you're both wrong.

They did include all the groups of christians in the count, because they are christian, but all the churches include members who have left in all their counts as well, so as to dishonestly inflate their numbers for tax purposes.

Nobody cares about this philosopher one way or the other fatass. Your right wing nut job site read the back cover of his book and made up this grandiose article.

You probably found that from the front page of nationalpost where they gush about how amazing George W. Bush was as president right fatty?

Better luck next time and do try to learn to eat those green leafy vegetable.

That's approximately what I said.

You will admit, will you not, that many Fundamentalist Protestants do not consider some of those groups to be "real" Christians?

It does. Back in those days, nothing went to waste - not even poop.

Dung was used when firewood was scarce.

Nothing in that passage stated firewood was scarce. Ezekiel run around naked screaming like an idiot and was to have people take a dump on the ground in front of him so he could use their turds to cook his food.

Lol! Yahweh your god is wacky like that!

Later he enjoyed the screams and smells of Jephthah's daughter being roasted alive in his honor.

Ohhhh that silly ole Yahweh! Oops he did it again!

Lmfao!

When you want to inflate your numbers, you include everyone! Even if you believe they are damned to Hell and you wouldn't let your child play with their children.

Who is so stupid that they can not see through that?

Oops, I should have read buck's response first.

that was not to me, but I have to admit to being not knowledgeable about what you mean by your phrase in the green box. the two long words. please explain your meaning and intent.
I think I am friendly toward you at least because of your criticism of folks I do not respect, but I think you may be wasting time with them and should be spending it out enjoying real spring instead, which is my next thing to do. just stopped by the library book sale - got the book by Marcia clark on OJ to see whether I can stick by my opposition to the death penalty, with a preference for seeing almost everyone however bad stuck with a no-pardon life sentence. the brain study program should be able to study what makes people do some of these awful things.
later maybe some folks will figure out more about why people have to believe such horrid things as many of them do. especially those who worship an evil god and justify their own cruel behavior, either by claiming they were commanded to do it, or by claiming their God will forgive them if they only confess a belief in some total nonsense. I do not really believe in free will.

So. It doesn't have to. You & Impotent love taking scripture out of context, that way you can ridicule it, or at least you think you can. You haven't learned anything about the bible except how to say "I've read it cover to cover!"

That's the whole point of studying the bible, so we don't make fools out of ourselves like you with your retarded posts.
