Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Well I for one hope that he never listens to me. Let him run through managers at the same rate I go through toilet paper. My team wins championships every season, his just once in a while.

I don't believe in Hell, eternal damnation nor that one can "sin against God" (like pissing against the wind IMHO).
I do believe that we can make our own "Hell" as well as make others lives a "Hell".(See: No Exit, Sartre)
None of which has anything to do with any religion or lack there of.
Well, I got that impression from your post. You said that adultery was a "sin" that jesus couldn't help you with.

And if I was talking to a Jew I would have said that he was "beyond the help of the Torah and YHWY".

I guess in athiestic terms I would say he is "beyond the help of a psychiatrist".

The Harry Potter books describe a fight against evil whereas the bible describes an oppressive belief system that maintains evil: e.g. when jesus endorses slavery.

lol, but religious mythological stories have morals, just like hers books do, that's what you were meant to understand, not start worshiping the story! I bet you that some of her fans think the stories are really, I'm talking about the grown-ups too!

It's the one with the real Manchester fans, not some dicks living in Islamabad that just need to be on the winning side.

While the OT has regulations regarding slavery (which was considered appropriate in most cultures until 150 years ago), there is nothing in any text where Jesus supports it. In fact, Jesus is usually finding 'loopholes' to remove archaic beliefs and traditions.

Islam does embrace slavery in the Qu'ran... as did the USA until 1865.

Why would that matter?

Manchester United is a team that went passed their borders long ago. They took the game to the world, and have plenty of fans to show for it.

Wrong.

"Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ." (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

"Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them." (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

You are obviously a crazy person. But I shall take pity on you. Look bud, Jesus believed in all those insane OT laws. Anyway, what you are doing is making up your own religion. GO and look up what Christianity belives in. They believe Jesus is God. So all those crazy barbaric laws are according to christians given by god who is jesus. Yes it is nonsense. Any further questions see a psychatrist.
