"Atheists beleive in a world of make believe" REALLY? In a far away magical place you can live forever, visit Mom and Dad, talk to uncle Lew and aunt Blanch, you'll never be sick and happiness will be with you every moment, but if you don't follow the directions given by an invisible man who lives in the sky he will get angry with you and send you to another magical place where you have to be submerged in lakes of fire, for eternity. You have to follow his rules because you belong to him. He created you by scooping up a handful of dirt and blew on it and out popped a fully formed male, you are his relative. Yep Atheists believe in a make believe world..........LOL

When someone asks you a question, it is polite to answer a question when it is asked, to the best of your ability. I do not ask for proof in general because I know that you have none. I also do not claim to have all of the answers an my only question to you would be "why do you not admit that you may not be correct in the things that you claim to be fact?" I can read and comprehend just fine.

You don't believe in God but you are no different from any other Theist in that your belief are totally unsupported. You believe in something you have simply made up, something you have imagined, and then are foolish enough to speak about it as something real. You believe in this energy "thing" for no good reason other than it somehow makes you feel good. You apparently don't care whether or not your beliefs are true, they just feel good. So don't try and distance yourself from those who believe in God, you are right there with them, and your version is just as twisted and unsupported as there's.
You are right on one point here, this person does not have a soul, and neither does any one else on the face of the planet. You have been asked by me and countless others to provide your evidence for this soul thing, and NEVER have you even ventured to offer your proof. You've twisted and turned, said we could never comprehend, even saying that learning about a soul could be dangerous. In the end you're just another crazy moonbat, with a completely worthless idea.

Why do you think it's wrong to kill babies, your God has absolutely no problem doing it? You do in fact worship a baby killer. Your God also murdered late term babies, aborting unborn fetuses, and he had absolutely no problem doing so.
There is a very nice correlation here between slavery and abortions. The southern slave owners had every right to believe that having slaves was perfectly all right as it was sanctioned by God almighty himself. Now since your God has no problem murdering babies and unborn fetuses, then you should have no problem with late term abortions, as they to are sanctioned by God almighty.

Sorry to disappoint you, but you'll get no name calling from me. I truly believe that religion is a poison to society, and always has been. It has put up barriers to advances in both science and in medicine. We may well have found a cure for cancer by now if religion had gotten out of the way of medical science. Religion is divisive, it forces people into little compartments, each with its own set of rules and standards. These little clubs, if you will, do nothing but foster hate and bigotry.
Religion teaches us to be content with not understanding the world around us. Whenever science does not have the answer, religion steps forward in fills that gap with God. Its called "The God of the gaps." Once you surrender and accept GODDIDIT the journey of discovery is over. But once you say "I don't know, but lets investigate." then the journey of discovery can begin.
Religion promotes the idea of believing in things without support, without evidence, believing simply because it feels good, is comforting. People who believe for no good reason, or who believe without evidence are a danger to others and to society. When you don't care whether or not your belief are true, you are a danger.
Of course your wrong about science. There are many theories about the origins of the universe and those laws that govern all things. There are multi-universe theories, there is the no boundary theory presented by Stephen Hawking. You have a preconceived notion about the origins of the universe. You begin with the notion that some God like thing created everything, rather than examine all of the other countless possibilities.
Science operates within the naturalistic realm, a realm were things can be tested, examined from every angle, weighted, measured, observed. You believe in something from the supernatural realm, a non-existent realm, were NOTHING can be tested, weighted, measures OBSERVED. You simply have a belief, something you have imagined, and this something you label God. You make the mistake most Theist make, you see something that you have no answer for so you automatically abdicate to God. "If it's so complex and I can't understand it then GODDIDIT." Once again, in saying this the journey of discovery can never begin. Religion does poison everything.

I have no use for any Bible... let alone Gideon's.
no I don't steal them. ;)
But I do suggest that you read yours cover to cover - It is obvious you know little of the content.
One of the most conspicuous blind spots Christians display is regarding Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount."
Snippets of it are cited repeatedly and even nonbelievers know some of them. That sermon begins in Matthew 5:3.
Some of its better known "beatitudes" include: Verses 3 through 5 - "Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." Also Verses 7 through 9 - "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."
What makes this so ironic is that a mere eight verses later, in the same "Sermon on the Mount" Jesus says this: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:17-19) And again, "For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?" (John 5:46-47)
There you have it.
Jesus is unambiguously talking about Old Testament Law.
Not only that, but Jesus, the supposedly "gentle carpenter" from Galilee, as part of the Christian Triune God, participated in every single Old Testament atrocity.

Its ironic the very people who condemn God are the very ones that support the continuous murder of unborn children. Hypocritical to say the least. But I will not shy away from giving you an answer.
God ordered during war time the killing of Amaleks. A bitter enemy of Israel. Everyone including babies were to be killed. So you are correct.
Now let us go to modern times. The United States dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan during war time. Killing civilian populations including children and infants. They were vaporized and many died of radiation poisoning. But your rants dont accuse the United States, your country of killing babies.
But your country did kill babies Doctor, and millions are still being killed because of the liberals who dont see a problem with it. Oh unless God ordered it during war time. Then the hypocrites have a problem with it. In Vietnam the US Military was involved in killing of civilians. Remember the My Lai Massacre?
I dont like it and dont agree with it but it happened. You were a Army Vet Doctor. War is ugly and horrendous. Theres nothing clamorous about killing the enemy. But if you dont kill him. He is going to hunt you down and kill you and your family. As we have been attacked by terrorist. Even in the city you now live in.
If our nation is ever attack by chemical or biological weapons. And we know who did it and the nations that supported it. I would hope our President would release the launch codes to the nuclear weapons hiding in the deep ocean in our submarines. Yes, I would be ok with mass destruction of the enemy.
And furthermore I would have at least considered nuclear weapons when innocent civilians were murdered on 911 by the thousands. If used the enemy would understand we mean business. Doctor, God meant business with Amaleks because he was tired of their sh*t.
Yes God did order the killing of the enemy. The same thing the United States did. And the very same thing the US Army did in Vietnam. And just about every major war in history it has happened. So now lets get real personal Doctor. What do you think about the millions of healthy infants being murdered by late term abortions because they are not wanted?
Tell us the truth Doctor, what is your opinion of killing babies during abortions?

Fortunately there are intelligent people guarding against the teachings of the immoralities found in the Christian bible. Teaching about mythical beings and magical places is fine for the study of fiction, but when taught that these things are actually real is simply lying to the students. Teachers should never lie.
Yes I'm sure you're convinced that reading the holy bible caused you to receive the HOLLY spirit. You do mean Holy, right? In reading your holy book, did you ever figure out how they determined that the young girls were virgins. You know, the young virgins God told Moses to give to the battle hardened soldiers as spoil of war. I think there were many hundreds of them. They were ordered to kill everyone BUT the young virgins. But I always wondered just how they determined these girls were in fact all virgins. Some kind of bizarre test or examination I presume. Please, when you find out, let me know. I've always been curious about that. Thanks!!!!
#180382 Oct 17, 2013
So is it your contention that God only killed babies during war time? When he ordered the slaughter of ALL of the Egyptian first born males, there was no war.
When your God got angry, a human trait I would think a God would be better to not have, and flooded the entire planet, thereby murdering countless little babies and destroying just as many unborn fetuses, there was no WAR. Imagine, you getting so angry at your children that you filled the tub and held their little heads under the water until they drowned. Would you ever get angry enough to even consider doing something like that? Your God had no trouble doing it to millions, and all because he had a little hissy fit.
BTW it was a Christian who ordered to bomb dropped on Japan.

If they were facts, they could and would be taught in schools, but the actual simple truth of the matter is that not one single fact has ever been proved, about spiritual matters, especially those relating to God, Jesus, and the Bible. Everyone's life is changed when they read about some new way of looking at themselves and the world, and that is one of the trillions of things that our brain is capable of doing. It doesn't mean that some magical invisible entity outside yourself suddenly took over your life, but rather you made a decision to look at things differently, and in your case, that appeared to be a positive move. It very well could have been, but it certainly says nothing about any true facts you might have read about it the Bible.
At the present time, aside from a few names of places and a few people in places of authority that existed around the same time as the stories in the Bible were talking about, not a single fact has ever been uncovered anywhere to prove anything other than it is entirely fictional.
I have got those kinds of things from reading Wayne Dyer or Tony Robbins too, but that is the kind of work they do, to make you feel changes in your life, but though one or both of them may be believers in a God, they are not promoting God in their work. But if you follow what they say you will experience some life changes, sometimes great ones.
I think many people had the same kinds of experiences from reading the words of Adolph Hitler or Karl Marx too, and they made drastic changes in their lives and sometimes in the lives of millions of people, but they certainly were not Gods who entered the minds and bodies of their followers, though their followers may have seen them as gods, or risked death if they denied it.

UM< all of them. It is going to be a part of government, 9/11, Just like Hitler is to Jews, Catholics and molestation.Ect. Religions should be taught the way Government history is. It is more important to learn religions than it is Presidents. It give children the rights to half truth and justice. To vote at 18 or change your spiritual belief. Not from a cultural view but from the word.

Well I know what I experienced. And I did not only think the truth as we have been taught from the Holly Bible, And the truth of Karun along with any other Witten literature. And also the truth of How Muslim who were from extreme sorry can not use right term but extremist Were not an example of truth. Just like other noted facts in historic affliction in the name of a religious belief. It should be taught what I received "Holy Spirit" and spiritual awareness from believers. Even non believers. Let choice be from education. I am willing to bet my life. They will have a higher power. I really feel non believers just have closed minds not hearts. GOD BLESS>
