sounds like you may have some anger issues with the male species! are you by any chance a lesbian? cuz more than a few studies prove there's an association with lesbianism and bigotry towards men!:-)
But when you have a babble controlling you then that's all great.

And here we go again with the godbot "I'll say what I want and if the recipient don't like it then they must have anger issues or they must be gay , anything but admit that they are ignorant ptats hiding behind their god myth" it's eally quite pathetic that you are unable to accept the conciquences of you own sick mind.

Btw, No I am not lesbian but you come across as a gay boy who cannot handle the opposite six..

in fact, i think that most all 'new age' women can accurately be defined as "witches" according to past cultures and Bible doctrine!
Like many words - duality in their meanings exist.

Why would you like to change the meaning of "New Age" to your liking, especially when you are requiring it to be applicable to ancient unfounded texts that men created?

You aren't forward thinking, huh?

Interesting.
You make unvalidated claims of supposed Christians in prison, while extolling the virtues of Muslims.
Meanwhile, the vast majority of horrific violence occurring right now is either in Islamic countries or fomented by Muslims.
You claim the virtues of intelligent conversation with Muslims as a woman.
But meanwhile, you ignore (as does the rest of Islam) the 300 girls kidnapped for sex slavery because Islam subjects women to ignorance.
Ah, the reasoning of 'rational atheist' oxymorons...

Not invalidated, just denied by godbots like you, go on, educate yourself and look it up on google scholar the data is there for you to peruse.
Oh I agree with you on the violence count, for the most part christians have been cowed into submission and given up, been beaten or simply died out in the christian countries. Such good christians as Stalin, Hitler, Adam Lanza, James Holmes, Anders Behring Breivik, Radovan Karadzic, Ratko Mladic, the IRA, NLFT, the KKK and those darling anti abortionists in the US. However their are still some good christian atrocities for you to hide, catholic priests sexually abusing children, the IRA are still killing people, the KKK are still killing and intimidating people and those darling anti abortionist are still using intimidation and force to impose there belief on others.
Yes I do make that claim and I know of one other person on this thread, another British atheist who will confirm that, and others on other threads. But feel free to guess if that’s what gets you off in the name of your god
I do not ignore the atrocities of one group and neither does Islam who condemn the kidnap of those girls just as you and any other decent person would. But once again if that’s the dream that consoles your belief in (funnily enough) the same god then feel free to lie about it.
Ahh the deliberate ignorance of godbot christards…
I've denied nothing. You didn't validate your claim.

Where is the outrage by Muslims against the kidnapping of the girls? You know, something along the line of the Islamic reaction when someone publishes a cartoon of Mohammad molesting a nine year old girl?

Moreover, you made numerous other ridiculous and distorted claims in a vain attempt to castigate Christians in the face of innumerable current atrocities being committed by Islam.

There is even evidence that the reason he wrote what he did was from guilt, it is claimed that he was the one responsible for the capture and hence the crucifixion of the guy that christians see as the late jc.
See the rebuttal of Celsus' work by Origen, his rebuttal describes the contents of Celsus work even though the original was destroyed in the (highly suspicious) fire of the library in Alexandra.
Universities have transcripts of early Saulus works

I had a little input into compiling the data used in these books so I am somewhat prejudiced, there will no doubt be other books.
I'll put it on my reading list, when I finish my studies for this semester. Get back to you.

To me, Pantera is a heavy metal band. But you said that he was Jesus' real father, right?

hi Rosa,
i see that you're reasonable with people/christians who stay positive and i really respect you for that.
the Gospel (i.e., God proved His love for us all by sending us His Son) is a completely positive message and that's what i want to stay focused on.
as a dual citizen of heaven and the government to which i now belong on earth, i often interject my opinions on moral & civic matters and i get silly cuz i'm also only human, but i don't want those issues to be mistaken for or associated with the Gospel message.
i say this cuz you usually reply to comments i make about moral issues and i think we have room to disagree on those but still be able to respect each other.
can we be square about this?:-)
I'll be square with you then. The only conversion I'm interested in is something like this: Mick O'Connor from the sidelines in the pouring rain.

So you've figured out what your opposite sex is now?

That's a good start.

Of course you don’t know what I am talking about, you are deliberately ignorant beyond redemption.
I have in the past spent a considerable amount of time in various Muslim countries, my husband (also atheist) is flying out to one today. The area I live is almost 12% Muslim, I can see 5 mosques from my office window (funnily enough more mosques than churches). 60% of the staff I employ are Muslim and the only people I can have decent, meaningful conversations with regarding religion here on topix are either atheist or muslim.
It seems that you have been brain washed by you local church hate campaigns and supermarket tabloid odium sheets. Either that or you are too stupid to discern the difference between Muslim and terrorist. It’s only makes sense for good christians to separate good christian murderers and groups like the IRA, NLFT, KKK etc from mainstream christianity but when it comes to other religions, such separation is anathema. More of your god given christian intolerance and deliberate ignorance.
Honey, atheism is the default birth state of humanity. Or perhaps you can provide evidence of a new born baby that believes in any deity. You should thank atheist that you have the choice and freedom to indoctrinate your children out of their initial state.
Of course they're not all terrorists!

Islam is not a religion I'm greatly impressed with, but some of the people are OK. Some are really nice and polite. I just don't want to live under Shariah law.

To quote their holy book: "I do not worship what you worship...Nor will I be a worshipper of what you worship."
http://quran.com/109

Hindus are good, like the bloke I used to work with. You can have a good discussion on theology with them - and they don't try to ram it down your neck. Funnily enough they believe in a trinity: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

This is one problem with some godbots, they claim morality as their own and are adamant that no one else can have any.
They cannot give any valid explanation why others cannot have any morality other than it’s what they believe. There in lies another problem, they see what they believe as “Truth” and will never educate themselves to any facts that contradict their beliefs
I'm beginning to think that Christian morality is an oxymoron. Oh, and Ethics is not a county in England.

i'm not in any way challenging what you're saying about islam here, but i'd like clarification on what you mean by "strong women"?
do you mean strong as in 'she embraces her different creative design, gifts and strengths associated with being female and having a womb', or do you mean 'pushy and controlling and having the mentality that her differences are superior to mens differences'?
just asking.....:-)
