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.

Oh darlin...What was said was "if god did exist"... re-read it. That was a good attempt at making it to a non-existant finish line first though ;)

It seems as of he would be smart enough to know that timely appropriate documentation would be necessary had he existed and was even remotely above average.

Either the NT is a myth or that pottery sale was too tempting. I can see it now an angel whispers.. Hey Jesus those fools aren't writing your account yet! Jesus replies, no worries it's not like it will take 50-100 plus years right? Surely my work and words will be so well documented and popular that they won't end up being voted on with a pagan as judge! Hahaha! That would just be wacky and no thoughtful person would accept it! We would have to force conversion by the sword and spear which is expressly forbidden in my teachings! Hahahaha!

Oops

If Jesus was historical, and was divine?

Why did he not take **godly** steps to ensure his message-- his unambiguous message-- made it properly through history?

It's almost as if he wanted it to become garbled.

Or?

As if he was busy elsewhere....

....!!!

Stop cowering there are thousands of variations of Christian churches from catholic to Mormon.
Which Christian denomination do you belong to.
Isn't it funny how so many Christholes are to scared to say what religion they belong to on here? Seriously I laugh at their humiliation.

I know right!!! They can't stand to say which denomination they are. If they could just get their myths straight they could all be one big happy family lol.

All atheists are going to hell.

Revelation 21:8
King James Version (KJV)
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

In desperation mode trying to change the subject I see. When I asked you what church you belonged to you ran and hid as expected. So ashamed of your religion eh? You must be a Mormon or something.

Why do you view it that way?
I see it as not punishing the snooty customer, but as giving him a chance to re-evaluate his initial behavior. Remember, the guest was the smug one and was being sneaky and under-handed about it. The shop owner merely gave the snooter an opportunity to realize it for himself.
When I reiterated that the out-of-towner had been smug and condescending you replied "So?" as if the out-of-towner had every right to treat the store owner this way without any penalty or sense of accountability. Your reply seems, on the surface, to endorse the actions of the snooty customer as somehow socially acceptable. Am I interpreting that correctly?
I'm curious as to how that view is any less arrogant than that of the store owner. The store owner could have kicked the snooty customer out. And then what would the customer learn? Would he learn humility or would he learn that he just isn't welcome in that store any longer? My thoughts upon first hearing that were that the store owner was still willing to allow the customer to come back, but instead of pointing out the customer's behavior, let him do a little work that shows him he's not as smart as he thought he was. There is no better teacher than self induced humiliation. The snooty man was not obligated to follow the owner's instructions.
The best lessons are the ones that cause us discomfort and embarrassment, because they cause us (if we're honestly observant) to realize that we're no better than the next guy, and they hold us accountable. If we're so smug and snooty that we don't recognize it for ourselves, what's the better choice? Are we to be banished by the owner with no hope of redemption; or do we learn a lasting lesson from a journey in which we come to realize it by experience and humility?
In the end, the store owner did our a snooty customer a favor, not a disservice. The disservice would have been to kick the customer out with no redemption, or to let him continue with his condescending behavior which would only encourage him to continue such behavior in the future.
What would you have done?
He didn't say that the customer had a right to be snooty. It's this simple. I work at the front desk of a motel. When a guest comes in, they know what kind of room they are looking for. If we don't have the right type of room, then I would simply send them to another motel that may. That customer, after being told I don't have the double bed room that they are looking for, may become agitated, and they may start speaking to me in an angry or frustrated tone.

I, being the "store owner", would not treat this guest/customer badly and send them 2 hours away to another motel/hotel just because they got tone with me. This person could be tired because they have been on the road for 9 hours, they could have 4 kids in the car that have been driving them insane for those hours, they could be hungry...there are many different reasons why they may be acting the way they are. Should I tell that guest to be humble and shove their 4 kids plus their wife/husband into a single queen room? No, I should not. I should try to help them as best that I can to get what they are looking for.

Okay, you have your view, and I have mine.
I interpreted it differently when I heard it.
I tend to look for the good within what seems on the surface to be negative.
This is just my opinion and I'm not trying to be rude, but I don't think you were looking for the good in this story...you were simply making the store owner look like a good guy and the customer look like a bad guy. To me that's not trying to look for the good, it's just placing blame.

The customer, if he was being rude, should have been less rude, and the store owner should have been less rude.

By all the accounts-- and there are few-- the vote was nearly (if not totally) unanimously against Revelations.

But Constantine insisted for some reason.

Why?

One reason could be the single place where christianity is exclusive, is in Revelations-- and no where else.

Constantine required an exclusive clause, to justify forcing people to convert.

So....

You said "By all accounts..."

I wonder if he/she even has a church to go to. He/she just acts like a bully on here because no one knows who he/she is. They find they get more attention bullying than responding civilly. The people who respond in kind really makes their day.
