It this retirement for you or a case of Kerry calling you home?

You’ll have to get used to the weather over here all over again. I have trouble when I’ve been in a warm country for just a few days. Actually we are going through a warm snap at the moment (between 19 and 24C) across the UK and here in Lancashire have had no rain for more than a week – must be summer.

Right, he pretended to be a Christian to use God, but then Judas betrayed them.
Ah, the morality of 'rational atheist' oxymorons...
So who has the last laugh?
SMile.
Judas didn't betray anyone.

"[Jesus] answered and said,“Judas, your star has led you astray.” He continued,“No
person of mortal birth is worthy to enter the house you have seen, for that place is
reserved for the holy. Neither the sun nor the moon will rule there, nor the day, but the
holy will abide there always, in the eternal realm with the holy angels. Look, I have
explained to you the mysteries of the kingdom [46] and I have taught you about the error
of the stars; and […] send it […] on the twelve aeons.”"

He he had, Jesus would not be speaking to him like this.

You do believe Jesus, right?

Perhaps there is a god that rewards non-believers better than cowardly sycophants like you.

You can't disprove this.

a. I'm not a girl....no need to apologize, I have accepted that you jumped the gun.

b. "God" doesn't reject inspiration, "He" gives it. Where does "God" reject this text, especially when it has Jesus teaching his message to his Apostles?

I think you are confused on who authorized what "inspired" texts and who didn't.

Please post where "God" has stated which texts are of "His inspiration" and which are not.

Then please post where MAN has stated such.

Whom are you going to believe?

Picture if you will the illusion of an afterlife.

Will people all faiths on the planet be in either a heaven or hell?

Got already know your decisions.

Your future is predetermined by him.

Free will is a contradiction in and of itself.

How did the idea of the afterlife show up in nearly all cultures in human history?

I think there is definitely a possibility of a Alien being who is smarter than you. You know, since most people already are.

bandwagon fallacy: concluding that an idea has merit simply because many people believe it or practice it.(e.g., Most people believe in a god; therefore, it must prove true.)

Simply because many people may believe something says nothing about the fact of that something.

For example many people during the Black plague believed that demons caused disease.

The number of believers say nothing at all about the cause of disease.

Religion is a disease and you are a carrier of this disease.

Sunni or later a steaming of Shiite will explode over pious Christians.

Are you prepared?

Read it again.

I didn't assert anything. I simply asked you to explain how the idea of an afterlife appears in nearly every culture in human history.

I think Islam could be God's judgment on the Western culture. As an atheist, you should be the one concerned, right?

Smile.
