My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Exactly.
In the Quran myth Muhammad says Muslims are only allowed 4 wives, except those that marry women in Muhammad's family they are only allowed one wife... Oh but Muhammad is allowed 12 wives! Why? Well Allah told him when he was all alone and unable to verify it.

<quoted text>
WELL ALLAH TOLD HIM WHEN HE WAS ALL ALONE AND UNABLE TO VERIFY IT.

There you have it,,,he was either lying for his own wicked reasons , or in dire need of a psychiatrist. Nowadays any one expieriencing voices in their head, is a serious cause of concern for the rest of us.

The bible is your assertion, an assertion cannot be proof of that assertion. So where is your evidence that your assertions are at all accurate? If you have none, then just say you are only stating opinion.
you like the word assertion lol isn't my opinion, what you on about I didn't write it?

RUBBISH!
I suggest you explain the following problems for us...
READY? SET... GO!
#1
Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
Damascus is still inhabited today with over a million people, and hardly a ruinous heap.
#2
Ezekiel 29:10-11 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia. No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.
Never in its long history has Egypt ever been uninhabited for forty years.
#3
Jonah 3:4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
Nineveh was never overthrown. Why? Because God changed his mind in verse 3:10, despite what Malachi 3:6, Numbers 23:19 and Ezekiel 24:14 says about God never changing his mind.
Jonah 3:10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
#4
Matthew 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Jesus states that all the signs marking the end of the world in Matthew 24 would be fulfilled before his generation ended. That generation ended 2000 years ago, and the world has not come to an end, neither has all those signs been fulfilled.
#5
Amos 9:15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
Many times, Jews have been pulled up out of their land. The ownership of their land is still being fought for.
please....take your time we can wait!
future prophecies, look what's happening to damascus now? And iran are the persians, when they start with iran ww3 begins the 3rd woe. And I already answered about christ. And them jewish people are not the real jews I already explained that, read revlations and it tells you that. Never mentions jewish in the bible. Its about we tribes and the head was judah, that's where you get the name jew. Simples

He is humiliating himself with verse 68 which mentions Israeli slaves being out on a boat and bondsmen.
He reads this and says wow that sounds like the slave trade in America! It must be talking about the exact same thing! Silly Christholes do this kind of projection all the time.
Hey the bible mentions people drinking water and gasp!! People today drink water! It must be prophecy!
Lol!

Let's say there was a big bang, wouldn't the big bang need a force or power to happen? You can't get something out of nothing. You telling me you can tell us that a big bang happened billions of years ago? Ok then tell me what was happening 20 million years ago? And your going to say evolution we developed from single cell organisms and our complexed bodys just happend to develop its self into what we are today...wow!? And I'm still waiting to see a monkey or ape turn into a human? Or a fish to turn into a reptile? Or a reptile to turn into a chicken or achicken to turn into a cat lol (I think you get my point)? Or mabye you don't? And having different varietys of a certain animal isn't proof of evelotion, just how there's different varietys of the human race. A dog is still a dog if it has a small or large tail a cat is still a cat if it has fur or no fur, right? And athiesm is just a religion its self, you belive in the big bang theroy you have a belief in a higher power. If there is no god or power whatever people want to say, how do you explain the complexity of our bodys? Dna? Earth? The planets? The universe? It just happened right? Evrything has to be created from a source science tells you that. End of that. Now the reason you don't understand the bible is because you don't want to you hate of a power judgeing you for your actions. And people are born knowing right from wrong, you know its wrong to kill to sleep with another mans wife and to lie. Up to you really, I'm done any way. Smiles :)

UK news...
Andrew Copson, Chief Executive of the BHA, said,‘Legal recognition for humanist marriages has wide support across the country and we welcome any step that brings it closer. It is eight years now since Scotland introduced humanist marriages and just last week the Republic of Ireland followed suit – England and Wales are lagging behind. Millions of people in England and Wales have profound beliefs and values that have nothing to do with religion and which they want to draw on in creating the moments that give their lives meaning, including marriage. Humanist celebrants have decades of experience in creating and leading those ceremonies and the couples that have them deserve for that wedding to be their legal marriage.’

Post something other than a diatribe of idiocy and you may get a reply that is somewhat less than outright ridicule.

Instead of talking to Fadu in a condecending manner, it would have been more helpfull if you had posted the second instalment of qualities required for a prophet.
