Information is the achilles heel of faith and unless they control everything a person watches or plays or reads or learns, nobody’s ever gonna buy into their bullshit. They won’t be able to shut the critical parts of their brain down in those critical moments. They have to fight against everything because it takes a lot of work to make people continue to believe in demonic snakes and octa-centurion ark builders.

Yes it is. The inability to see through the eyes of an anthropologist leads to misunderstandings, stereotyping and intolerance. Seek to understand rather than to be understood.

Which is usually the default position for many Fundy American Xtians. Ignorant that they willfully court ignorance. Rebelling against what they don't understand is an automatic default position.

LMAO. It's too easy to hit a home run on that one. I'm far too kind.

One I just love to nail their arses on is Noah fathering two sons when he was over 500 years old and living to 950. That's bullshit I don't care what they believe.

I believe the other "stupid" people:

“And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding”—Thomas Jefferson, Letter to John Adams, April 11, 1823

"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own--a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human fraility. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism. It is enough for me to contemplate the mystery of conscious life perpetuating itself through all eternity, to reflect upon the marvelous structure of the universe which we can dimly perceive, and to try humbly to comprehend even an infinitesimal part of the intelligence manifested in nature.

The Devil must be very desperate to send DAMNED FOOLS like you to call God a liar.

If you believe in a devil...do you also believe in witchcraft? You innocent Christians murdered more than 100,000 innocent young women simply because somebody accused them of being a witch. You didn't just murder them you tortured them before you set them a fire.
How gentle and caring you were. How gentle and caring you are.

Just curious.....how do you get around the parts which tell you to turn the other cheek, love your enemies and to pray for those who curse and despise you? How's that working for you?

Just a side note.....it also says faith without works is dead. Did you happen to read that part?

Ezekiel 33:8 (NKJV)
8 When I say to the wicked,'O wicked man, you shall surely die!' and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.

You are without excuse. You have a date with eternity.

I kinda figured ahead of you on that one.....Christians always do just the opposite of what they're instructed to do:

A little review for you:

Walk the extra mile
Turn the other cheek
Do unto others
If sued in court for coat, voluntarily give cloak
Love your neighbors
Love your enemies
Pray for those who curse and despise you
Be ye therefore perfect, even as the father is perfect

James 2
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them,“Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

And I believe every bit of it. What's your point?
