you are trying to seperate the Saxons and the Angles from the English which is wrong.
No, I'm pointing out that the *English language*(not the English people), in its form of Anglo-Saxon (also known as "Old English"), was spoken by the Angles and the Saxons *before* they arrived on the island of Great Britain.

You keep confusing the concepts of "English language" and "English people". "English people" refers to people from England (even if they don't speak the English language).

Do you understand *now*?

What does your claim have to do with my question?

<quoted text> You are proud. Not my claim, but the truth. Do your research and see for your self.
Your question under this context is meaningless, because, the Angles and Saxons are majorly the English of today.
Translation: Your claim has nothing to do with my question.

Did I say reasonable? I admit my mistake, you are an ignorant bigoted T\/\/AT
I am not attacking anyone, you are the one that jumped in on my post and interrupted me remember? But hey you are a your bigoted hypocritical christian so that’s ok.
That is your opinion and you are of the opinion that only godbots should have an opinion, more tough sh|t for you to swallow. Because for one, opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one. And two, I don’t care that you think goddidit, I know there is no god to do it and I can prove that with mathematical, scientific and natural evidence, that is your problem deal with it. Problems like yours is the reason that christianity is in decline and that you are such a hypocritical bigoted moron
<quoted text>
Lying for your god does not earn extra get to heaven points, christards do not read the babble cover to cover because what they will find will upset them. The god you worship (one of several mentioned in the bible) is written as a foul tempered, genocidal, child murdering, apologist for rapists, yeah go god.
Your opinion is just that, your opinion. Read it the way it was written, one verse after another, one book after another, it is not your so skip and dance around in time and “interpret” as best suites your personal wishes.
My point is that I have zero tolerance for liars, you lie, I have no patience with you for that reason.
Funnily enough I too have friends, my best friend is the one who consoled me when christians tried to kill me and thousands of others in the Manchester bombing, where my aunt lost her arm from shrapnel. The same friend who consoled me when christians attempted to kill my children is the wife of a BAC minister, she has a master degree in theology and is herself quite high up in the hierarchy of the church.
I personably have more reason to dislike christians than you can imagine but I get along well with those who are not bigoted, lying hypocritical fools like you who “it does sound like” builds their belief from guesses
<quoted text>
Public thread! Ever heard of the concept? You come on here spouting you opinion and yet expect only the response you deem suitable and attempt to deny alternative opinion. Honey, the teaching of biblical fascism is long dead, ask Hitler, ask Stalin. Live with it
Your rambling mouth problem may be aspergers, see a doctor
and please keep your rotten egg posts of clueless away from mine, because you just seem like someone who just wants to cause trouble with others, and fight with whomever doesn't agree with your opinions.
I will only ignore them now, rather than to waste time on such nastiness.

What's not to worship? Do you enjoy being selfish? Do you enjoy being selfless? Do you want to love to the greatest capacity given to you? Or do you want to quench everyone who tries to love with the spirit of God alive in them?
Rose Tyler, are you saying that a person can't be an atheist or nonbeliever and be moral? If you are, I have to disagree. The evidence against that can be found in any moral person of another religion or no religious belief at all. Some of the most morally upstanding people I have known have been atheists and some have been among followers of one religion or another. I it hadn't come up, I wouldn't have known who subscribed to a religion and who didn't. I wonder though, how and where an atheist recieves their moral development? I imagine, it is many of the old familiar places that all of us receive it. Home, school, families, even churches. It isn't like moral values are a carefully guarded secret of the church. Did you know that there are prohibitions against murder, theft and other so called sins, from societies that predate the Ten Commandments and are not Hebrew and obviously not Christian.

Depending on the circumstances and the individual, I myself would never drive away some that wanted to love me. At least not until after breakfast.

Christians have twisted and distorted the capacity and extent of morality in atheists into lies entirely for their own ends. It has become such a pervasive idea that even if you could question it, you don't.

Most of the questions on here aren't about attacks on God, but on the depiction of God in the Bible that you claim is an absolute truth. You make claims of the love of God based on the Bible and others ask how you can make those claims when there are passages that show God to not be so loving. This is an extension of the original intent of this thread, but it is not unconnected since the claim of absolute truth remains.

Rose Tyler I think you are a moral person, but you really need to evolve those beliefs of yours to connect with the reality of the Bible and not a romantic and fanciful notion of it.

When you have used the "I never heard God Speak to ME thus he speaks to no one" argument so skillfully and then turn around and say...we all have the same shared knowledge...no one is outside of universal knowledge of Good and evil no family, tribe, people etc.Why is it impossible to Credit God as the Being who shares this knowledge with all peoples not just there families...He even allows people to enjoy living who are confused about Him and afraid to make direct statements of Faith. But He knows there hearts. I prefer to say exactly that He is God...I see the power of the spoken Word in the lives of the people createdand loved by God.
If you believe there are passages that reveal that God does not love. You do not understand the 'ideal'love a husband has for a wife who cheats on Him...She flaunts it in His face. She smiles about it. She enjoys it. She humiliates him...and yet He takes her back...not without revealing what pain does...People cause their own pain...not God.

Smith from Danville said-"Since God created everything, how can something not be of him? You will have to go deep on this one Rose Tyler. I am just not getting it."
You want me to say that God created Evil ...because to you Since God created EVERYTHING...there is the conclusion that He must have made Evil. He Allows Choice. He wants to see love. He's not like a demanding husband who asks his wife "Do you love me?" and then uses pressure to make her say 'yes'. His Love is a Sacrificial love that is the perfect example of freedom in a relationship. His heart is completely open and giving, It is why we love because he first loves us...Men are considered the 'Bride' of Christ as well Everyone needs perfect love to respond to.

We haven't established anything. You can't prove your place in society and I don't want to prove mine!

Other than that, I don't really care what you deny. You started calling mentally handicapped people evil. I don't know what you were thinking but I don't like that kind of judgmental behavior applied to the handicapped.

You can call it a rant, but I call it a path that I've chased people down too many times, so I called it for what it was. Now you can come to me with what you really were thinking if it wasn't that. I claim that judgmental right to offset your "evil" bit.

So far, you've insisted that what you said was righteous and you stand by it.

Admittedly, you confessed that you did not know that the shooter was diagnosed as an Asperger's patient. OK. I can walk away from that, but you didn't. You played the dodger game. Something hurt you in a way that mattered and you refused to admit that the mentally handicapped need treatment, not punishment.

...and that's how this whizzing contest came to be.

....and I missed the "boys" reference entirely. Must have gotten lost in the mix. Never even heard of that song so you would have had to spell it out.

Sorry Rose Tyler, I had to edit the quote. We are gettin wordy.
I can't speak for what others hear in their head. All I can say is that there are other more rational explanations for what someone might think they hear. For all I know it could be God. I am not and I don't believe I have made that argument. There are a lot of things I haven't heard or thought, but I can't speak knowledgably on what other may have or haven't heard or thought. At the same time, I can have doubts about what they might hear or think they heard. I might even not believe it, but it is a disbelief based on experience and facts and not one lightly taken. I have my biases to be sure, but I am trying to pull back and view this as a whole picture. We are not just talking about what a Christian believes, but about what a person is capable of doing. Is the way I have articulated that clear to you or have I lost you again.
Again, Rose Tyler, I didn't claim a universal knowledge shared by everyone. There are people that have no real morals at all. Morality drifts about like spider silk on a wind. It is different in different places and times. I am told that human sacrifice was considered moral by the Incas. In the United States many found it moral to own other human beings and the Bible was used well and skillfully to support that heinous institution.
No, that is not what I said at all. Is there something wrong with my computer or Topix? Am I typing English and is it coming out in another language on the monitors of others? I seem to be getting a lot of answers to questions and points I have not made.
No we do not have some shared knowledge, but again, the Bible is not the sole repository of morality and Christianity is not it only keeper and giver of moral lessons. Has Christianity really become this arrogant or have I been naive and it was that way all along?
I know the love of a son fighting alongside his mother and brother to keep his father alive. Listening to the ribs crack and break because of CPR. I know the love of a son and the guilt too watching that same mother suffer from Alzeheimer's and eventually die. I have seen a man fight desperately to save a marriage, to have his world upturned by an errant spouse. The woman he loved so deeply that even today the thought of taking her back if she would come, still occurs to him. He lost that struggle and moved on if you hadn't guessed. I have seen a man betrayed by a boyhood friend he had known for nearly thrity years. A friend he would have taken a bullet for. I have seen that betrayal turn a friend into a bitter, hated enemy. I have seen friends that were well loved lost to horrible accidents. I am not unique in my vision. Others have seen worse and some from a front row seat. It is part of the struggle of life through which we perserver. It is part of being human. Yes, in my personal, but not unique way, I have seen these things. Anything else that I have seen that you would like me to relate. I saw a UFO once. Not an alien ship, but an object that to this day I cannot explain. Maybe it was God.

I thought we had moved past this. You are still trying to one up me. Fine, if that is what it takes. I am a redneck womanizing, bastard with kids all over creation. I was a four sport letterman in high school that spent the better part of my time making gay jokes and bullying smaller, weaker children than myself.

Rose Tyler that is the obvious and logical answer. Given an all powerful, omnipotent, supreme being and given that he created the universe it is logical that he created evil. However, I have lost point on the previous post that my response was addressing, because I don't recall thinking, "I am going to get Rose Tyler to say God created evil."

What would be your thoughts on the matter if the shooter was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder? Do you think a person with a mental illness can't be evil? Conversely, can an evil peron, you mentioned Hitler before, have a mental illness?

I am a little lost, I never mentioned what I thought should be done with the shooter had he survived, did I. I may have. You would probably remember better what I said. But shouldn't they be taken into custody. Examined by the courts and if found capable of standing trial, be tried by a jury of their peers and accept the verdict as handed down by those peers. It is the verdict of the jury and orders of the court that determine the disposition of such a person isn't it?
