Who left the gate to the insane asylum open and let all you idiots in here. As far as God goes, I would rather live my live believing he exist and die finding out he doesn't rather than living my life believing he doesn't exist and die finding out he does. As far as I know we all may be living in hell now, dealing with demons and with idiots like you all, I am leaning forward to believing it. You all must be evil to run our creator down along with his creations. You all seem to be happy doing the devils deeds rather than spreading the Lords word. If you don't think God created you then go back to eating bananas and swinging from the trees you trolls.

This is rich if you enjoy a bipolar response to a schizoid difficulty—you insult me poorly like a a really childlike Paul Reuben skit, and then when you get your proverbial clock cleaned, you begin a rather Mr. Rogers-esque version of condescending backpedaling in the mode of the pantywaist whining of a Valley Girl in the fifteenth trimester of pregnancy.

You have posted nothing of value in response to me, and frankly, I stopped reading your blathering nonsense about three paragraphs into the 'belly of the kindergarten beast' from the 'self-professed king of an atheist monarchy'.

You have typed nothing worthy of a thoughtful response, and to date, you have only been awarded that which you deserve—credit for your SpongeBob SquarePants ad hominem. Luckily, I do not do 'childish', so I simply gave you an example of why you should never attack anyone who is clearly your superior in any scholastic endeavor or venue—science, history, theology, governance and civics, literature, or anything beyond the scope of your obvious limitations.

So if you have the means to browbeat me into submission with your inferior intellect and obese ego, prove it. Otherwise, you can return to insulting Norton badly, and when you attack me in the guise of offending Norton, I'll return and rip you the new asshole you deserve.

It never ceases to amaze me when people insult me poorly, and then find themselves cowering in the corner, beaten senseless into within an inch of their intellectual life, and then they profess their innocence while bastardizing every rule of civil discourse known to humankind, all in a vain effort to save themselves from obvious ridicule, albeit expected and well-deserved.

So let me put this in the nonsensical rap terms you might be able to comprehend within the framework of your obvious Linus' Security Blanket personae.'You ain't no gangsta, Charlie Brown.'

Is there anything else you would like to add, or are you just going to sit their with your flaccid penis in one hand, and your Nero's fiddle playing in the other? I did not burn your Rome—you set it on fire while attempting to sharpen your baby-teeth of intellect on my shin, and all the while you're complaining about the smoke coming out of your arse and garret.

You're operating a wit without a license or a clue. Awaken me when you reach remotely funny. Then I'll chuckle, pat you on the head, and let you return to your delusional world where you reign supreme—with your ilk of liberal idiots and socialist reach-around buddies at your side while you hang upon your cross of blatant foolishness and they hang upon your every word for intellectual sustenance. That explains why they're emaciated.

Your vocabulary lacks more than anyone could teach you in three generations, your grammar is relatively 'ordinary'—acceptable for a 'forum comprehension', and your personae would fit in rather nicely with the fifteen other voices buzzing around just inside the foil hat you wear so neatly.

Yet I must admit I did grin a little when you mentioned your 'philosophical superiority'. Methinks the gangsta rap has infested your mind with delusions of punctilious-yet-trite grandeur.

You might frighten some of these dolts, but frankly, I have socks older and smarter than you—and they are all neat, orderly, and semen free. Now wash your yellow-stained socks and hush. And please learn how to discern paragraphs and punctuation. If I am going to read a remedial version of Moby Dick, the least you could do is to 'trim the proverbial sails'.

Your bravado is cute. Yet that 'superior nonsense' made me chuckle again—maybe you do have the seeds of wit buried somewhere beneath that peach-fuzz face and token Cub Scout demeanor? How's this for wherewithal?

These three words should suffice for the epilogue: Gum me, Forrest.

Next?

The tribulation is a modern phenomenon never mentioned by Christ or his disciples. Your God tortures people. Even if they are disbelievers, it's downright narcissistic, cruel, and mindless nonsense.
This might be a generational thing, and I am certain you were taught this nonsense by someone—but tell me this, did Christ seem like he was mean to you? Why is your God so damned vicious?
He's a loving God. Preaching about him as if he were Adolf Hitler suits no one, and you will never convert people by making God into a brute. He gave us Free Will. You had the Free Will to either read the scriptures and study theology, or to be a follower of useless tripe.
If you know verses that can back up your arguments, besides the so-called flood, Sodom and Gomorrah—both done for genetic purification, and not just to rid the earth of sinners—then please, show me the verse. Christ came to show you the love of his message, not to placate a bunch of really bad theologians.
Yet you can call me a blasphemer and condemn me to hell with the rest. One day, when the time comes, I will prove to you the reality of God's word—not this nonsense you call Religion. It's pure zeal.
First, I hate the word religion, even tho' Christianity is a religion. I hate it because there are MANY religions. Christianity is the one and only true religion because those who are christians believe in Jesus Christ as their Saviour! No others believe this. Some think he was a prophet, etc......! Some don't believe in him at all.

If you think you can prove what you call the "reality of God's word", go ahead!

I believe every word in the Holy Bible to be the inspired word of God. He inspired those who wrote it! It was written over a period of years, in different parts of the world and by different people........and it connects perfectly! Coincidence..........NO!
No human(s) could have done this on their own.

You say my God is mean? He isn't mean! He is a righteous God that died for the sins of every man on this earth. He died on the Cross for us because he loved us so much.

Rev. 7:14 (written by John)
And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.......etc.!

I Thessalonians:5
......."Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

ch. 9
For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath (tribulation) but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Matt: 24

Actually Triple, it is Pascal'a Wager. Which is "belief in God is rational whether or not God exists, since falsely believing that God exists leads to no harm whereas falsely believing that God does not exist may lead to eternal damnation.
Actually it's called both 'Pascal's Wager' and 'Pascal's Gamble', depending on your region of origin. And I am familiar with the concept—I have taught it. It is called many other things in regional colloquialisms, and it's a concept that predates both of our prior monikers. In better words,'it's a rather old maxim' that was boiled down for 'comfort'.

You obfuscate for simple reasons—there are no verses supporting your claim of a 'tribulation', or for an 'eternal fire of damnation where sinners burn in perpetuity'.

So you 'strain at a gnat while swallowing a camel'. Your conflict is with yourself, not with those who contest your rather strict and nonsensical beliefs.

The King James version of the Bible is not 'protected by anyone', and certainly not protected by the divinity of God. You are speaking of the concepts put forth in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Torah. They are verbatim. The NT and the remainder of the Bible are not. They have been altered, manipulated, and boiled into nonexistence. It is a nice myth, however.

They selected the books, not by author, but by topic. Revelation was written by an outsider, but until that point, the Bible had no ending. So they need an ending, and Revelation was a nicely written construct of a Biblical Epilogue. You stopped following Christ and began following an often poorly written book.

Human beings screw up everything we touch, including the scriptures—and the concept of love, compassion, and the Christ.

You are the new version of the Pharisees, against whom Christ railed. How does it feel to misdirect souls? To reduce the spirits of so-called 'failed Christians' to the ashes of a nonexistent fire?

To spend eternity without the Father is the horror that Christ related, and he compared the absence of the 'soul' to spend all eternity—not in a burning everlasting hell-fire, but in all eternity without God—without a spirit or without a soul, without awareness, and without any further existence. Life ends after you lose your soul, your spirit, and you are no more.

He used the Fires of the Landfills around Jerusalem as an example of something that would be worse than spending eternity without an awareness, without a soul, without his Father.

And someone along the line turned that into Hell, and made it a place for all eternity. All Christ was attempting to do—by using a parable as he always did—was not to scare people needlessly with a place called Hell, but to scare them away from the proposition of never existing again, and to be without God for an eternity.

You do a great disservice to Christ. You place words into his mouth that were never even uttered. And you do so with the belief that you are doing his will. That is sad.

Blind Guides.

You boast about nonexistent victories in nonexistent battles, and you do so for a valid reason—you're a simpleton. You're like the RB's in the NFL who never play a down in between the 20's, yet who come in at the last moment and score a two yard touchdown while the one who did the work gets a breather—you're a Poacher.

Yet truthfully, I see you more as a 'maggot', who feasts upon the dead, produces nothing but excrement and waste, and then spends a lifetime boasting about the meal as if you killed it yourself. You have never had an original thought or concept in your life because you're just a dullard. A follower. A maggot.

Keep wanking little man. You're impotent.

Oh so after 20hrs and some research you do now agree? So does this make your prior statement of "That was hardly Pascal's Gamble." a false one or one that you were lost and not sure of?
I did not disagree with the term—I disagreed with your premise that the post you mentioned was in fact an instance of Pascal's Gamble. Please read more carefully.

You have a Martyr's Complex, or truthfully, a Messianic Complex—as if you're actually that important. You made a poor observation. I corrected you. You should be quite used to that by now.

I never agreed with you. I corrected your poorly thought-out observation—again.

Pascal's Wager (or, if you prefer, Pascal's Gamble) is a logical argument and is not a "maxim."

And, if you think about it for a while, Pascal's Wager has a devastating logical error. In other words, there is an error in the fundamental assumption, and thus the conclusion is untrue. That does not stop illogical people from pretentiously citing Pascal's Wager, thinking that they are wise.

I already told you 'I know Pascal's Wager/aka Pascal's Gamble'. I have taught the principle, and all so-called 'logical arguments' have a foundation in 'old maxims, old beliefs, old parables, or just old sayings'. So does Pascal's.

Having 'an error in any fundamental assumption' does not qualify as an argument for 'Pascal's Gamble'. That's why I corrected you entire premise. You chose to attack my choice of moniker's for the very same argument. There's a psychological term for that, as well. Look at 'avoidance'.

You cited Pascal's Wager/aka Gamble, I did not. I merely corrected your false premise. And now I have corrected you again. Study and stop bastardizing terms. I am not paid to be your 'phrase-keeper', but I will correct your obvious absurdities—no matter the topic.

Is all philosophical argument this damned elastic in your area of limited expertise, or did you just bastardize this premise for no damned good reason?

How in the hell do you think Pascal's came to be? By divine intervention? Nope. It was Pascal. He came to his ideas the same was as you—through the study of old ideals, old maxims, old premises, and old philosophical arguments—and Pascal's Wager is a VERY weak argument.
