<quoted text>quit crying. Source? Give me a break. I take one look at your posts and I've heard it all before. The exact same verses and terminology. All atheists do it pick and choose verses they think will provide that "gotcha" moment. You do no research and no open minded studying about what the verses are actually about. Honestly, it will take me about 5 min to find explanations for every single verse you can ever provide. You need to stop worrying so much about verses and more about yourself. Its the war on Easter isn't it? Saw something tonight where some crazy atheists group had their traditional billboard nonsense up again. No wonder people don't take you seriously
Lmao!!! You can't even remember who you are talking to!!

And whats with all the poop in the bible anyway? especially people eating it?
2 Kings 18:27

New International Version (NIV)

27 But the commander replied,“Was it only to your master and you that my master sent me to say these things, and not to the people sitting on the wall—who, like you, will have to eat their own excrement and drink their own urine?”

Isaiah 16:11

King James Version (KJV)

11 Wherefore my bowels shall sound like an harp for Moab, and mine inward parts for Kirharesh.

Someone has an awful lot of gas and for farts to to sound like a harp, someone had to be eating something other than beans, maybe psilocybe mushrooms. And then Isaiah said: PLAY SOME FREEBIRD MAN!!!!

Jeez now you are dreaming about what I look like? I dont want to sound narcissistic but I would drive a girl like you mad. I know that you're probably already wet because I'm the new guy but you are going to have to take a bath and wash that HooHaw, like its 1999 before you even start to interest me.

today I was running short on time getting to lunch. At a very busy intersection there were 'panhandlers for god' and they were seriously screwing with traffic. I saw the light turn from green to red 3 times! Ive been studying the philosophy of Seneca and trying to bear in mind that shit happens and if I get upset, its actually 'stoopid' because this nonsense is to be accepted and to let it bother you is like you act surprised. I finally made it to the traffic light and was first in line, when a crackhead asks me to roll my window down. When I do he leans into my window really close telling me how he burglarized houses and was screwed up on drugs, now he is just screwed up on Jeebus. I had enough and told him to get the f*ck away from me and my truck and ask him if he thought he would be better served by perhaps getting a job instead of asking an atheist for money in Jeebus' name. You could see the anger and he said he would pray for me but I told him that wasn't necessary because I was the one with a truck, a home and money and didnt need gawd wasting anytime on me. I had to listen to this crackhead preach to me until the light turned green. Why would I want any advice from someone who cant even function normally in society? I took a picture of his stupid paper to show you. maybe jeebus would be happy if I domnated my home, truck, TV and everything else I worked for to crackheads for christ but jeesus needs to take care of his own children.
Hey @sshole Anti-A...And homosexuals bother you? give me a break!

You should have told him that you would prefer he pray for you because at least he would be doing something more acceptably correct than what he was doing at the time.

Don't deny yourself an opportunity to do what is right just because you don't believe God exists. When you do, you become part of the problem.

The dilapidation of our society is not because of the lack of religious values, it is the lack of moral values.

Research what? The Bible? No thanks. Read enough of the Bible to last me the rest of my days. Analyzed plenty of it in Church and Sunday School with the help of devoted, life-long xtians. Conclusion: nobody really can make much sense out of it. Result: modern 'versions' in modern syntax are produced adding yet another degree of separation from whatever hogwash the original authors were peddling.

I think it is inspiring that Atheist and 'bot alike can support their arguments from the same book! Something for everybody!! You can make whatever you like out of it ... sort of like Alphabet Soup. Which, perhaps, best describes your 'Operating Manual for the Planet Earth'. It's "instructions" have certainly helped screw this old world up.'Bout as useful as those poorly translated 'assembly manuals' that come with children's toys.

Knock yourself out.

Yeah. Pray in a closet ... in private. Advice from Jesus his own self which so few 'bots heed, makes you wonder why they even put it in their holy book.

Oh and ... has anybody here seen me "claim to be half way intelligent"? I think not. I'm blue-collar, uneducated and dumb as a rock. In a diploma or degree waving contest I'm a clear LOSER! I put in a 'special-request-chit' for a life do-over and have been assured that I will be a Dung Beetle next go around. I'm actually looking forward to it. Basically I'll be doing the same thing I'm doing now, but at least it will be outdoors.

angel do you think I haven't heard your nonsense before? I can go to any atheist website and they have the exact same verses listed. I can go to a Christian website which actually reads them and explains them in context. You must be extremely easily influenced. I'm laughing at you
If the Bible is a perfect book, divinely written by God then why do you have to go to a Christian website to have it explained to you?

ALSO, your not going to get me to budge on this one, you are saying that if explained properly and taken in the right context rape is OK.
I don't care how much money is exchanged between the rapist and the victim's father raping children is wrong ANTI!

Angel do you REALLY believe that the bible is advocating child rape??? I mean really??? If so, then I don't think I'm going to be able to help you. You have already fallen off the deep end and there is just no reasoning with you.

So that no one has the chance to impede on my words of wisdom, I would like to add;

People like Anti, have neither religious or moral values.

Thanks for the peanut this time. It's good that a peanut is a legume and not a nut. It would remind me of you every time I saw one.

Do i believe? No. Anti I have read the words myself. I know for a fact. Were not talking about whether or not its in there or not.

ITS IN THERE

what were talking about is you were going to try to justify and give the context in which the Bible states raping, paying for and then marring a small child is OK as it states.

I am taking the opposite side in which I say it is wrong to rape a small child.

advocating it?

it gives you a price!

It does not speak out against it, its not in the 10 Commandments. It says it costs 50 shekels!

You dumb ass... its not what we believe, its what we "dont" believe. If you cant understand that stick a sock in it. Here is your ignorant, ignorant, ignorant analogy.
1) Lack of belief = belief
2) not collecting stamps = collecting stamps.

Where have I denied myself to do what is right? I dont really see where your post really hads anything to do with what I posted. My point is that any christard can rob you of your lunch break, rob you from enjoying your lunch break and invade your space while you are driving appropriately. I was not bothering anyone. I'm not standing on the corner, screwing with traffic, going to peoples houses, filling peoples mailboxes with propaganda.
