<quoted text>
The only reason I know more about the bible than you?
Is because I never lost my curiosity, and back when I was still trying to be a believer, I was curious about the bible-- when did it come? How? Who was responsible?.. and so on.
As I began to study the history of the bible? I really began to understand why it is the way it is-- and why so much of it is simply bronze-age-- and no more sophisticated than bronze age thinking.
It's because the bible is that old-- nothing newer in it.
Which, if there was a real, living god?
Is ... problematic.
Why did not this "living god" update the bible to keep up with the new discoveries humans are busy making about the universe?
The only real answer can be--because there never was a god in the first place **to** update it.
And that the people who all wrote it are long dead-- we'll never know their true motives.
Curiosity killed my faith in god; I was not content with non-answers of "mystery of god--don't ask", and I asked.
The answers explained much; chiefly that the bible is purely human in origin.
And that pure human origin explains why it's so... evil.
Humans who would rule over others, tend to be corrupt and evil after all.
Ahh.."Bob of Quantum-Faith" ..this is why Jesus only taught in parables ...these remain timeless ..

And , I'm not really sure how these really old texts (Jewish ,Hindu and so forth )...could keep such a prevalent following ...if there really wasn't something to them ..

I mean we stopped worshiping Volcano's , the Moon and Cats ..long long ago ..

That's your excuse? Because the crowd goes along-- you will too?

What if they all decided to drink poison.... would you still follow?

When do you stop following the crowd (like a mindless sheep) and begin paying attention?

Not that long ago? Everyone just **knew** the world was flat.

Did that make the world flat? No...

I never said that I believe we just vanish. Physically I know my body will go to the dirt. As far as my soul is concerned...I have no idea. I don't believe that anyone does. I like to dream about different things that could be, but that doesn't make them fact any more than dreaming that a "god" is real makes it fact. I just know that I don't believe in the biblical "god", or the bible. I have no idea where my energy will go after I die.

How on earth does putting souls in god-created hell-- where god **intended** that they go in the first place -- cause this god any distress?

More to the point?

If that did "hurt god"? That means your devil is **more** powerful than your god is!

For only by being **more** powerful, could he hurt god...!

You really don't think these things through, do you?

Well thanks....I have to agree with Bob though... the biblical god supposedly created hell, and he is supposed to already know the decisions that we will make so I don't think he would be surprised or hurt if a soul gets sent to hell. That makes sense.

LOL...well I appreciate the compliment even though we've never met, and I'm sorry that you do not get along. Bob has been a nice feller to me as well, and I will always say when I think someone is right, and on this occasion as well as many I have to agree with this one as well ;)

...I'm merely concerned for your safety "I_see_you" , as what "Bob of Quantum-Faith" fails to disclose ...is, there's a "smiting" coming down the pipeline for him ...

And, if you're unwary you may suffer momentary flash blindness ...or...even worse , get hit with shrapnel ...

So , I'm just telling "everybody" if you wanna hang out with "Bob of Q-F" wear ear protection a bomb suit and some dark shades ....

Your god "loves" us...

He tortures us forever....!

WTF?

That isn't love-- that's... abuse!

You hate-filled god-robots have been claiming that for **years**.

Literally since 2005, I've been "warned" about "god's smiting" or worse.

Riiiiight.

Your hate-speech and fantasies of horrid torture are duly noted.
