Thank you for sharing that with me. It gives me a gauge as to just how intelligent you are.{tipping hat]
Your posts can be summed up as nothing more than SWAIM. Slander Without Any Inherent Meaning. You and Kreepy Kimare must be charter members of the SWAIM cult. Of course, Christians on forums only have two games, SWAIM and PRATT, or Previously Refuted A Trillion Times.

He's on Ptag making an arse of himself in a grey box.

I think he got sacked from spending all day on topix, talking to his phone in manner of lunatic.

I wouldn't be surprised.

He has said things are going on in his life.

And he has been acting like a lunatic lately.

I suspect the Redneck may have been fired, or suspended, or his wife left him.

Or maybe his chicken died.

Are you saying that you don’t bash people here on topix?
You claim bashing people is pathetic?
So you are a self appointed judge that has given immunity to yourself for bashing others?
Thank you for giving us an example of a false balance.

Sure I bash people, but I don't need a religion to do it. You devoted an entire paragraph to my life story. Remember that? Not only was it SWAIM, but you were fractally wrong in every lie you wrote. When I mention using your religion as a cudgel, it has nothing to do with simple insults, Kim Jong. Tell me, exactly, what happens to non-believers in your particular version of Christianity when they die? You've already explained the fantasy you envision for yourself, but what happens to me?

If you give an honest answer, you will understand what I mean by using your religion as a cudgel. Violent retribution or even simple death could not be the bastion of a loving deity. Robert Green Ingersoll said it best:

The doctrine of eternal punishment is in perfect harmony with the savagery of the men who made the orthodox creeds. It is in harmony with torture, with flaying alive, and with burnings. The men who burned their fellow-men for a moment, believed that God would burn his enemies forever.

He/she saw a dry spot on the sidewalk during a rainy day, considers this a freakin miracle. Very VERY low standards. Doesn't believe anything in the bible yet claims God (which one) exists and does miracles for him/her. This is a prime example of how screwed up you become when you start believing in shit that isn't real. Pathetic, really pathetic!!!

Funny that you and sympatico mentalities proclaiming such a worship of science should make fun of my investigation of THE force that has put you, and your thinking, together.

Magnets and strings are a rational methodology to see how it works. It is a force that arises from the construction of this universe and our existence. This is a force that arises and combines on the atomic scale, not a monolithic thingy that just exists. "Magnets" are results of that. EM induction on the atomic level is the real telling nature that created that force.

Simple minds such as yours, will just guffaw and say "Oh, that is just electricity, haven't you read the books? yuk yuk yuk!!" And think you "know" something.

And then call an electrician to change a fuse.

Play with electromagnets to get a better understanding. Look at the "physics" of how this happens, noy words you read in a book and don't understand what is occurring.

Your "knowledge" is like picking up rocks and dropping them in a bag. You think you have something. Your intelligence is on the same order and worth.

BTW, it was a devout Christian that put that force to work for you, not an atheist scientist.
He might've been a Christian scientist, but he was one that wasn't satisfied with the answers that religion was giving him.

Andet claimed that god pointed him in the right direction for his psoriasis cream and THAT was a miracle. Guy's a freakin' loon.

The fact that he repeatedly posts his prayer to god thanking god for his diamonds and his checking account and his beauty pageant wins is so out there it defies description...

<quoted text>No prophecies have been fulfilled, ever. Those making the predictions either know the outcome before hand, or it is such a generalization that it appears to be fulfilled. If I make a prophecy that there will be a very bad blizzard in Jan. 2015, and there is, has a prophecy been fulfilled?
It's fiction because everything in the bible is imagined, there is NO evidence that anything in the bible actually happened. Your example of Eve in the Garden is a prime example of something only imagined.
Most of the prophecies in the OT that Christians claim are about Jesus are not even remotely about the Messiah let alone a zombie-god.

Here is the "Christian prophetic method" applied to real history:

"The kitten in Little Red Riding Hood proves that Ben Franklin was Emperor of Canada."

See how stupid it is ?

To say that atheism requires faith just as religions do is akin to saying that absolute darkness is just another kind of light, or that absolute silence is just another kind of sound or that a bald person has a different kind of hair. This is patently absurd!
Do you think that I need faith in order not to believe unicorns ever existed? I think not.

You made the claim every part if Christianity is a copy of other religions.
I took the fundamental identity of Christianity, grace, and asked where it is copied from.
Can you validate your claim, or were you wrong?

The parallels to Mithra, who also offered this grace nonsense, are alarming.
"I don't find it strange anymore that there is a four thousand year-old legend among the Zoroastrians; the legend of Mithra. He is supposed to have been born of a virgin on December 25th. Mithra was considered as the "lamb of god." He atoned for the sins of people by dying. Then he resurrected on the third day! There is strong reason to believe that Saint Paul fabricated the belief system of Christianity from the Zoroastrian mythology. In order to hide Paul's plagiarism ... the Christians burned the library of Alexandria in 390 A.D. Books in that library kept Mithra's original story of which the Pauline Doctrine is an almost exact carbon copy.(George Sarton - Introduction to the History of Science)
No honest Christian scholar can deny that Saint Paul forged the belief system of Christianity from the four thousand year old Persian legend of Mithra. In order to hide Paul's plagiarism, the Church burned the library of Alexandria in 389 since that library preserved Mithra's original legend of which the Pauline doctrine is a carbon copy.(Kersey Graves - Christianity Before Christ)

Actually, grace is what makes your religion disgustingly immoral. That a omnipotent could only think of demi-human sacrifice via suicide by centurion is ridiculously laughable and disgustingly ridiculous.
Your CS Lewis apologetics are childish.
You "Loving Christian" oxymorons disgust me.
Barf.
Really?

You want to invalidate the Bible with that pile of baloney? I'll bet you know it is too.
