You don't think a deity that demands the torture and killing of an innocent person is rather creepy? Not to mention the whole idea of substitutional sacrifice: don't you think people should be responsible for their own actions?
The Devil and all his helpers are creepy. And thatÂ’s not a harsh enough word for him. Now the one true God, he Rocks. He's like Seal Team Six, he takes care of business when he needs too.

I think the most telling portion of Bongo's comment is that he compares or perceives his faith as equating to:
"faith in a supposition and replete with obstreperous prevaricating and pontificating shit"

So you don't care if this deity is responsible for genocide, infanticide, ethnic cleansing, condoning slavery, racism, and sexism, and ordering rape, as long as none of that touches you directly.
So it's not that you are amoral so much as you lack any compassion to a degree that would make a highly autistic person blush.
You have God confused with your fellow man. Cause he does all that stuff.

No, it's not like that at all.
That girl he was talking about chose a life of drugs and sex and partying instead of a life of work and responsibility.
Big difference.
So?

You chose a life of violence.

If you say so.
Its insufficient to skeptics .
Of course it is. Anecdotal evidence on it's own is only good for the credulous.
America the USA is a special place. Israel is still around. Imagine that. Such a small hated country, yet we are there for them.
Israel, as with it's other theocratic neighbors, are good examples of why theocracies are a bad idea.

I understand your derision. You prefer to beat women.
You are a scumbag.
Where I come from no one would dare hit a guy like you with a closed fist.

They'd bit*h slap ya with an open hand.

Not me, no way, I don't hit softies, not even with a open hand.

Yeah I read something about monkeys, briefly mind you but I didn't know about cats!
I had a gorgeous white Persian, she was the epitome of nonchalance and the toms on the block were terrified of her, funny as.
As far as conspiracy theories go, the AIDS epidemic concept doesn't appear to be as removed from reality as some others, so far anyway.
I named my cat Shah, which is Persian for king. Everyone loved him, including all the kids in the neighbourhood. They really are the Rolls Royce of cats.

I miss him, but know that Shah wouldn't want me to be sad for him.

Within history,'the Satan!" is a mythic figure from a book of historical fiction or what is commonly referred to as myth.
You just believe it is literal.
That was a "Thanks for proving...." BenAdam classic.

Too bad you missed it.

What history book are you getting your supposed info from?

I don't get what you're saying. I don't see what the facts about math or ice have to do with faith in God.

it started with the apple. The operation of God is his way of doing things. Kinda like the 21 ways to skin a cat, only you don't get to chose which way. defacto wise persons trust in God and obey. its easy
