God is spoken of as a “He.” Jesus is a male…the Son of God. The Holy Spirit is referred to as “He. God had a wife called Asherah , yes god was a male figure.
The bible was written by the female haters club of jerk off goat herders.
Women were the possession of men in the bible, men could posses other men in the bible (slaves) Yes god was a male figure.
But...
Do you really think humans have ever in history been totally rational beings?
They used the bible to answer all the questions that couldn't be answered at the time.
Same as they do now, the thing is ...some of us don't need it to find the answer.....
any answer anymore.

Indeed--- or really, really old (and not in the least interested in sex of any sort).
Think: Mother Teresa.
*shudder*
The late great Chris Hitchens discussed Mother Teresa at length.

The old bitch lost her faith in the waning days of her sordid career which consisted of telling the sick that they should be thankful.

Good God Almighty can't get any more ridiculous?

One could imagine with the world's largest landholder i.e. the Catholic Church they could come up with a few nickels to feed the poor
Instead of building sumptuous mansions for their clergy.

Sorry , Native peoples ...but, the fact remains if only your leaders worked together , you could have easily pushed us back into the Atlantic ....

The same kind of people that use waterboarding and don't call it torture.

Our "war machine" as you say is alive and well look at the casualties and their broken bodies as they return from illegal wars.

Doesn't make me very proud.

Who does a combat veteran, standing on a prosthesis, thank for his patriotism?
God?

Eisenhower nailed it when he warned of the military industrial complex after Korea the country should've listened.

When did a headache become a disease?
In what way did I agree with them? I illustrated that you were wrong that none of your brethren across the spectrum felt that headaches were caused by sin. Why are you moving the goalposts? Oh, that's right. Your immoral dogma requires blatant dishonesty. Carry on.

Do you know that child labor laws, trade unions and employee rights are Communist policies ?

I never said that none of "my brethren across the spectrum" think headaches are caused by sin.

I said headaches are not caused by sin.

I never mentioned other Christians, you did.

Where's my dishonesty? No, no, no, it's you that is now being dishonest.

Based on the facts of his atheist lifestyle, I would say it's highly unlikely.
Of course he's not in Heaven. He's dead. Heaven is imaginary.

To which they help finance the cost of the war. This played a big role, but you underestimate badly the impact of trading oil for other than US Dollars, this is a hegemony that drives the World Bank, the Federal Reserve and the IMF.

Memories last for ever as long as your mind remains stable.
Heaven and hell are equally impossible - literally make zero sense and therefore are unworthy of any critical thought.
I believe it's safe to say paradise represents something different to every person who entertains the thought that it exists.
Also remember should it actually exist; you will be sharing it with Muslim martyrs..
Will food be necessary or toilets?
If you're not allowed to have animals than what is Heaven without your dogs?
Take the time to do some serious thinking about your own family - will you see everyone since the first amoeba?
Will they even recognize you?
Oh I forgot with gods help you recognize everybody is going to take you a long time to go through a few million relatives just to say how are you.
Not to mention all the new in-laws you'll find yourself having in paradise!
Doesn't sound much like paradise to me sounds like a place you need to escape from not go to!
Ain't superstition fun?
A) I really doubt you have actually tackled this question " critically ...how , many books have you researched on the subject ....big fat zero ...
B) of course Muslims will be there ...suicide bombers...no .
C) Dogs may not be there ...but, everything we love about our pets will be there ..the loyalty , bravery , curiosity , playfulness , work ethic and the unconditional love they give us ..etc.
E) food and facilities ....beats the fuck out of me ..??..Jesus ate after His resurrection , maybe it just for the benefit of His apostles ..as , that leaves evidence ..
F) everybody is related ...sorry...but, I'm related to you ...Big Sister ..
