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.

So are you rejecting the bible?

If a book that fully endorses rape, torture, human sacrifice, slavery, butchering children, summoning bears to kill children, burning your daughter alive as a sacrifice then wants to say if you disagree with it you are a fool?

Lmfao! Go for it oh book of talking snakes!

The Bible?
Now if we are to believe the Bible and apparently you want us to believe it. Because you have referenced it several times. This same Bible also says you are a fool. Please understand I didn’t call you a fool. The Bible says you are a fool.
Now the fool shall teach us about scriptures? Now a fool is only wise in his/her own eyes. Your heart is corrupt and your mind is distorted. Deal with it,:).
Psalm 14:1
King James Version (KJV)
14. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Psalm 53:1
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
Proverbs 12:15
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
Proverbs 23:9
Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.

Christ is the head of the Church. Nowhere in Jesus ministry did he talk about setting up a Pope to rule over the church. Not one of the disciples were ever referred to as “Father,” by any of the church members. It was forbidden.
Matthew 23:8-10
King James Version (KJV)
8. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
9. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
10. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
Amplified Version
Matthew 23:8-10
Amplified Bible (AMP)
8. But you are not to be called rabbi (teacher), for you have one Teacher and you are all brothers.
9. And do not call anyone [in the church] on earth father, for you have one Father, Who is in heaven.
10. And you must not be called masters (leaders), for you have one Master (Leader), the Christ.
You are crazy ...all churches have leaders.
The bigger the church , the bigger the leader.
But you insist there's no true Scotsman , lest it be an invisible and absent one. A church of this leadership may as well not even exist , what do you meet in the woods at whenever you feel like?

If you meet when jeebus tells you ...it will be sometime in the next 20,000 years maybe.

Oh certainly almost all if the the famous OT accounts are stolen from other cultures. It's a good thing plagiarism isn't one of the commandments or else all the bible myth writers would be in deep trouble.

This idiot really doesn't know that Catholics are Christians!

He must belong to some bizarre cult that screams about the pope being satan on earth or something.

So either catholics are christians or there are very few christians indeed.

<quoted text>
The answer to you question is no. Since we have already concluded that the Catholic Church came 100 years later after Christ died. The term 1prot·es·tant derived from those that broke away in protest from Catholicism. Protestant is a derivative of the word protest.
Members of the early church in the New Testament were commonly referred to as Christians. Acts 11:26

***Physics proves that no one really has blue eyes

Although some people have blue eyes, and many babies are born with particularly deep blue irises, no one actually has blue pigment in their irises. They're just a trick of the light.

Yep, very long way from Cape Town.

My mother still runs it.

She doesn't prepare the food herself anymore, unless for a VIP client. Also, she bakes the cakes...She refuses to give out family recipes!(What is the plural of recipe)

Also, you can get a plane ticket from Cape Town to Joburg for about R800 - In pounds, that is about 55 quid.

What are you serious? You have brain damage I think.
Origins
"This detail of a fresco (1481–82) by Pietro Perugino in the Sistine chapel shows Jesus giving the keys of heaven to Saint Peter.
Catholic tradition holds that the Catholic Church was founded by Jesus Christ . The New Testament records Jesus' activities and teaching, his appointment of the twelve Apostles, and his instructions to them to continue his work.[7][8] The Catholic Church teaches that the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles, in an event known as Pentecost, signaled the beginning of the public ministry of the Church"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_C...
Christianity was pretty much ordered and developed by the
Emperor Constantine I in the year 315.
Belief is a funny thing to you christards , you believe what you want no matter what the truth is eh?
Why are you trying to twist history? What atehist purpose does it serve you?

You said: "Christianity was pretty much ordered and developed by the
Emperor Constantine I in the year 315" - That is NOT true.

In 380, Christianity became the state religion of the Roman Empire by order of Constantine.

It wasn't "developed" by Constantine.

Whether or not you athiests want to acknowledge the truth, Catholics & Christians are very different. We are NOT the same.
