<quoted text>Look if Christianity was fake ..at least one of the Apostles would have recanted ...and, show the authorities were Jesus's body was hidden ..none ever did .
..( also , I admire you honesty ..but, do you have a photo of yourself where you are just a wee bit younger ...the one in your image profile makes you look kinda old .)...
What makes you say that? How do you know what anyone 2000 years ago would do? You make crap up about me and I live today and I have never met a godbot who will recant anything even if proven to be a liar.

Christianity is not fake, it exists as is apparent by people like you, however the story upon which it is based is baseless, without evidence and there is quite of lot of contradictory evidence despite the attempt of christianity to destroy it. The inclusion of the apostles in the babble did not happen until about 350 years after the death of claimed christ, please advise how dead people can recant anything?

And the photo, much better than a grey cut-out but in actuality it is there for a good reason, it’s what so many godbots deny, a transitional fossil.

Never been anything other than blonde but I have changed the shade now and again.

I love blonde hair, so much maintenance though. Not terribly practical with little boys and the sea air.

Just the same as any other colour – it’s changing and maintaining the new colour that’s the problem. Of course you always get the dickheads like KiMare who think it’s funny or racist or some other such shIte who drip into stereotypes because they have nothing better to say but you get used to it and treat them as the numpty bigots they are.

"Numpty" lol.

Yeah that's work for my hair, the maintaining. It grows faster when it's blonde for some reason. Haha. I've had mine blue and fluorescent pink as well. Pink attracts numpty type attention. Frikken pelics.

Keep squawking, galah.
it seems that you're unable to connect the dots, Rosa:

EVERYONE has 20/20 hindsight so we're all appalled by the holocaust against the Jews.

the lesson to take away from the past nazi fascism, is NOT to duplicate it in other places nor against other people groups:-)

I suppose that statement could hold some truth and has probably been argued to death on here so I won't add to that part.
Here is the thing about religion....
When I die, how I lived here will no longer matter UNLESS there is an afterlife, or heaven and hell. So which risk am going to take while I am here in this life? Do what I want, sin and deny God, and take my chances there is no afterlife?
I ready live my life more or less as a moral person obeying the basic principles of the Bible.
I don't go to Church very often, usually when I visit my folks. I rarely pray. I couldn't tell you the last time I read the bible.
So what is wrong with believing in a higher power? I already live my life in a manner in which I believe will get me into heaven if t does exist. So, when I die and it turns out the Atheists were right I won't know it and will have no regrets about how I lived here on earth. But if it turns out the Christians were right I will have eternity in hell to discuss with al the other Atheist about how wrong we were.
So in the end I will take my chances and believe that God does exist, that heaven and hell are real, that the Bible is his word, and I will live my life accordingly. If that bothers you Atheists then get over it!! I am not trying to convert you and I don't care what you choose to believe. The God I believe in gave us free will as does our Constitution to believe in whatever we want to, or not believe in. Leave me alone and I will do the same to you in return.
just a sincere question and i don't mean any harm:

would you still be patriotic to your country even if the antichrist was its leader and forming its laws?

i'm just asking because the germans were fiercely patriotic and that's why its leader was able to become so very fascist and still have the masses behind him:-)

This is exactly the sort of irrelevant mumbo jumbo that I expected. It completely ignores the documented facts and instead simply attempts, with no evidence whatsoever, to put the blame for what you cannot understand on atheism.
And again you are wrong, you make assumptions based on your own hatred, you are assuming that because I don’t like you then I don’t like all christians, how arrogant can you get?
Do you have any evidence that Stalin chose to keep your claimed atheism secret?- hell no, you have nothing other than hearsay and lies that pander to your wet dreams
let me break this down for you, Chris:

many atheists argue that fascist tyrants like stalin and hitler and such were acting out of their christian roots and influence. altho, those of us who who Know God and His word would argue that it's ludacris to think that way.

for instance, the bible tells us that thee AntiChrist himself will be cunning enough to ride the wave of religious/cultural acceptance until he has enough power to turn on it and begin to persecute the 'religious' institute that he used for his purposes. our amercian presidents do this ALL THE TIME in order to get elected, then they don't keep their promises to the conservatives after they get in office.

Judas (1 out of 12) rode the wave of popularity on Jesus' coat-tails until their was an opportunity to cut-lose from Him and make some $$$ on his own.

why do you think these kinds of approaches with Christianity are any different right now corporately or on a personally basis?
