Earlier you said you knew for a fact I was DollarsBill. So when you say you "know for a fact" something, you should never trust yourself nor should anyone else trust you, you lying bigot-faced atheist.
I still think you are DollarsBill, using another sock.

Lying is what you people DO BEST.

I'm not required to give you proof. This is what makes you so mad.
You cannot-- because you don't have any.

This does not make us mad-- it makes us LAUGH.

You are literally, insane.

If that were true, your post above would be your final and last post.
Your atheism is just not enough for you. Your free-thinking is still costing you as you are chained to this forum to get your daily refreshing lies to carry on.
You can't enjoy your atheism as you know it is a lie.
Witness the hate-speech, the lies and the INSANITY of the godbot above.

Amusing.

God of the bible is fiction.

But is also, fictionally, a liar too.

Absolutely.
Really?

Did you have to hold a gun to their head?

Or did you use other forms of physical threats?

Or?

Was the imaginary THREAT of TORTURE from your monster-god enough?

In any case?

You are no better than a bank-robber or a common thief....

Projection. I've never been happier, since I kicked toxic religion and lies (faith) out of my life.

It is you, who demonstrates your seething hate for us.

I'm not angry. And I am **certainly** not ashamed.

I've done nothing to be ashamed of!

But you?

You clearly are in deep fear of your own ugly godling.

That's a shame.

Your god isn't even real!

Neither do you.

IF souls were REAL?

Then MEMORY must be preserved!

But people with Alzheimer's LOSE ALL THEIR MEMORY.

Proving there is NO soul to preserve it.

Thanks for playing.

Yep.

Nothing in the ugly bible is original material. Not a single word.

What's more, the oldest parts, are no older than about 500BCE, and were stolen, re-written to **appear** older than they were.

The NT is similar, the oldest parts are allegedly written by the mythic "paul" character, older than the 4 "gospels" by a generation or two at least. The 4 are too new, too-- 60 to 90 or later, years after the alleged events.

Once I learned of this history? I realized that nothing in the bible had any worth or value any longer (to me).

If the Bible were a farce and a myth, you wouldn't be so angry and frustrated about it. But because you are angry and frustrated, you prove the Word is completely valid, true, and dependable.
Now spend more time proving I'm D.Bill, would you? You still haven't proven that.
So if I am angry at Lord Voldemort, he automatically leaps out of the book and becomes a real person according to you?

You need to see a doctor about your mental illness of faith.

Look how badly it affects your logical reasoning...

How is being against something, admitting that its true??????

In your f*cked up world perhaps.

No wonder you creationist stay dumb for so long. With arguments like these there should be legal intervention.

Parallels Between the Lives of Joseph and Jesus


The following are the amazing parallels between Joseph and Jesus which suggests a karmic link between them and another past life connection of Jesus.

a. Jesus and Joseph were both born through miracles. Jesus through the virgin birth (Matthew 1:18-23) and Joseph through Rachel's barren womb which was opened by God (Genesis 30:22-24).

b. Joseph's father loved him more than his brothers. Jesus is the beloved son and preferred one of the Father.

c. Both are described in the Bible to be very pious men who received revelations from God. The Bible records no sin in the life of either Joseph or Jesus.

d. Jesus and Joseph both went to Egypt in their youth. Both began their life's work at the age of thirty (Genesis 41:46, Luke 3:23). This parallel was noted by Origen in his Homilies on Genesis (II,5).

In persecution, Jesus and Joseph were stripped of their robes and placed in a pit for three days where they ultimately arose victorious to be great princes and became exalted by God for their great suffering. In the pre-Christian apocryphal Jewish text called "Testament of Joseph," Joseph's suffering is described in a way that could easily apply to Jesus as well:
Joseph was sold into Egypt on the advice of his brother Judah. Jesus was handed over to the Romans by the hand of his disciple Judas.

Maybe a sock puppet, maybe not. Dumbill had a bad case of babble Tourettes. He could not post anything without appending a quote from the Big Book of Fairy Tales, whether it was relevant or not, whether it supported his position or not. He also seemed too dumb to learn from experience, so I doubt a mere banning would have effected behavior modification in his next incarnation.

If religious insanity was a rare phenomenon, there'd be a better case for suspecting this one is a sock puppet. Unfortunately, Jeebus Derangement Syndrome is all too common.

I'm not. This is your own anger and seething hate speaking.

It is **you** who is desperately trying to convince **ONE** person.

Just **ONE**.

So your massive ego will be satisfied.

Funny.

These projections of your own **hate** is unbecoming of you.

You have PROOF of this ... "hate"?

No?

It's just your own jealousy of me...

... if you had PROOF of this? You would POST THE PROOF IN TRIUMPH.

You cannot.

Because you lie.

It's what you do best.

It is common.

But I've found that those people who resort to multiple avatars also tend to manifest in multiple personality disorder-- in that they are literally insane.

As such, they fall into the fantasy-role they create with the sock. So they have this imagine/personality in their heads that they play, when they use the other sock.

But you may be right-- they well may be two different full-of-hate cultists.

As you say, it's too common by half.
