I see: your monster-god has to use THREATS OF INFINITE TORTURE to get followers?

That's rather .... tyrannical of him, don'cha think?

Nope.

Never gonna happen-- if by some magical impossibility?

Your monster turns out to be real?

I'll >>never<< bow to your monster-god-- ever.

He will have to >>force<< me-- proving how much of a MONSTER HE REALLY IS.

And?

I'll hork a lugi in his eye, too...

.... JUST for the baby-murders from Noah's flood alone, makes him a monster.

Indeed they are-- with each step?

THEY PROVE YOUR BIBLE WRONG EVEN MORE.

First? It was science proving the earth was NOT a flat disc (in contrast to your silly bible)

Next? It was science proving the earth was NOT the center of the universe (in contrast to your silly bible)

On and on it goes-- proving your silly book'o STUPER-stition is false.

Pity you.

That is not a requirement, for going to hell.

I am female and not willing to learn to be a male, so biblically speaking there is not an option for me to enter the "god of the gonads" heaven. There are things that are worse than frying forever in an imaginary hell, and the biggest one of those things would be worshipping a insufferable imaginary monster in the "god of the gonads" imaginary heaven

Thank you, for you opinion.

Be aware that my opinion has canceled yours out. My willingness to support those comedians whom I think are laugh worthy, keeps Ricky Gervais and many others in work and rolling in money. LOL!

Is myth: your Jewsus was no more than a myth-- never existed.
What with the lack of any physical evidence of him ever having been here and all that.
If the Jewish carpenter had ever made so much as a single three legged stool, there would be at least a milion reproductions on ebay (some authentic, some not, and available to the highest bidder.
The dearth of stools says more than any other thing, of the complete fabrication of the wrong named and been here twice already liar, Jewsus.

Moreover? There have been enough pieces of the "one true cross" to build a wooden bridge spanning the English Channel. At least twice.

People are gullible fools.

..... but not enough to have built an ark, that could have held the number of animals claimed. Maybe the god magic'd up a shrink gun? Forced them critters to fit in the boat. Rick Moranis style!
Maybe it's time to start up a new factory, and start producing authenticated plastic gopher wood reproductions of Jewsus's handi-work. There is bound to be real money in it. Everything in limited editions and taken out of production after a preset number are made. And once every 10 years bring them back, sell them out and then retire them again.
Side product note: Name it "Jesus Wept" fill tiny bottles with water and privately call it a mortgage lifter

Indeed-- you could even offer to get rid of industrial waste!(liquid only)

Seal the waste liquid in glass bottles, label "Authentic Jesus Tears" and include a little instruction to pray over <whatever> and bury the tears in your yard under a tree. And wait.

And in real fine print? You explain that failure to achieve desired results is not the fault of Authentic Jesus Tears. It does, however, mean the user has insufficient faith, and they should pray more frequently. Extended periods of not getting the desired results means a second or even a third bottle of Authentic Jesus Tears should be purchased-- up to four at a time, placing one on each side of the house, to honor the bible's Four Pillars.

A second warning not to drink Authentic Jesus Tears, as they are simply too powerful, and could make an unworthy person really ill.

We could make a fortune! And we'd be getting rid of liquid industrial waste as a nice environmental benefit.

You know his name isnt really Jesus right? Jesus is just the Greek translation of 'yeshua' which translates from Hebrew to Joshua, but his name wasnt Josh Christ either since his parents werent Joseph and Mary Christ. So its not really blasphemy to say Jesus Christ cause its not taking the right name in vain. I would drink Jesus Tears, And then I would drink the tears of all the people pathetic enough to beleive in him after they realise their holy messiah is nothing but a fairy tale from a desert country. That or when they realise Jesus isnt white.

Well, since he was a Jew? The correct spelling of his name would have to include Hebrew characters, wouldn't it?

And you are quite correct: he was probably darker than Obama is.

Meaning that Obama and other people of color, are closer in heritage to this Palestinian Jew (presuming he was a historical figure...which is in doubt).

Dang fine idea, and I see that at least one prospective customer is already expressing an interest in sucking down Jewsus tears.

I even thought of a way to get rid of indulstrial solids.

Seal it in little glass bottles-- heat-seal the glass.

Then sell it as Jesus Grave Dirt.

Get yours today! Dirt from the Genuine Tomb of Jesus!

Not to be confused with another product: Genuine Jesus Tombstone.

This would be a glass val with a tiny chunk of recycled concrete (from destroyed buildings, and highway resurfacing).

Never mind that there would be enough of these to pave a road from NYC to San Francisco ... and back... people will buy it by the boatload.

But you'd sell it as a piece of the tombstone rock that covered Jewsus' legendary tomb.

:D

Next:

Genuine Jesus' Sandal-pieces...

... made from old car tires stained brown... like old "leather".

Yeah, I always found it really weird when I would talk to the local Christians and whatnot and I knew more than they did even though they had been going to church since they were kids and I`ve only given a damn for about 2 years.

The difference between ex-christians who became atheists (like myself) and still-christians?

Is still-christians have not ever read their bibles all the way through.

Like many British "Christians" he has always been quite openly atheist.
Quite right Ricky! Good for you.

"..there are 2,780-odd gods. If you are a Christian, you believe in one of them and not any of the others"!!
Piers Morgan - now there is a talentless ham. A protege of the likes of Murdoch and Trump.
Science has almost eliminated superstitions, although witchcraft is still big in parts of Africa. The last big hold-out is organised religion and that type of superstition will largely go too - eventually.
You fail to realize one thing: that religion, Christianity particularly, is vital to the human race. While it may not always result in perfection,(the Crusades, jihad, etc,) it represents at its core a human race struggling to do right by each other by establishing an overarching moral code. Many of the biggest charity organizations, such as the Salvation Army, were founded by Christians; charities are some of the most beneficial organizations in the history of man. Look at all they have done over the ages: disaster relief, homeless shelters, etc. You might say you're all for moral codes, but without the religious doctrine. But it is the doctrine that holds it all together.
