Actually blasphemy is a threat to religion. If it is pointed out how laughably silly the claims of priests are it would take very little time for many people to drop their beliefs. That is why priests made blasphemy an unforgivable sin against "god". Actually it was a sin against them and their way of life.
i learned that very quickly as a child. my parents always taught me that knowledge was the greatest thing one could attain, but in religion if you asked rational questions you were called bad names. i was about 8 when I figured they were hiding something...

She is also a jealous God and she has these human traits because she's human.

Finally, the truth behind your hatred and bitterness toward God has surfaced. PEOPLE did it to you, not God!

no, people showed me that your cult is based on proven lies.

question those lies and like in any cult, you are told that is a bad thing.

I have no hatred to any myth. i am not bitter at all.

you see that because you cannot talk about your cult rationally.

No, you questioned humans about God's laws. God didn't get angry at you , people did.

Here is a simple question for Christians. If the Bible is "God's Word" what is your evidence of this?

Of course it's just a shame that we have to take the word of human beings about what p sses God off.

Oh, it's always been people. No point in being mad at God since it's apparently done very little for 2,000 years. 13.71 billion years even. In fact ever since the creation of the universe it seems to have done little more than sit back and watch the whole show without interfering once.(shrug)

Indeed. God probably couldn't give a flying fig about us as it's got an entire UNIVERSE to worry about. Possibly several.

In fact he's probably WAY more worried about the situation on Rigel XII to worry about us in our tiny insignificant corner of the universe.

There are no "god's laws". There are only man made laws.

Funny, since they appear to be little more than variations on the theme of Romans - "Anyone who disagrees with our religion is PROOF of our religion!"
