I attend church everytime the doors are open, I strongly believe in it. I can tell you several reasons why Jesus should love you. Most importantly why he does love you. He died for your sins before you were ever born. While dying on the cross, He considered each and everyone of us.He will return saving his children, And I sin everyday.I disobey god that wonder thing is all we have to do is pray and ask for forgiveness. When we ask for forgiveness He wipes clean our slate, as if it never happened. He answers prayers, and he protects us. Most importantly he LOVES us.

Would you seriously expect a Christian to write, as I did, that God isn't real?

Your comment doesn't make any sense.

No, it isn't nice. But it is necessary. Skom attacked everyone who tried to nicely explain the situation - so why play nice anymore?

Everyday living in Bible times;
Women's dress
Womens's clothing was similar to men's but it was made of finer materials,had more colors and the women wore veils. They too had robes they wore under their outer garments.Their outer garments and headgear also protected them from the sun.Rich women wore a long train or veil.

LOL. Sorry. Dim is functionally illiterate. And not smart enough to say. "I didn't see your answer" or "Could you link me to your reply" - something to suggest that he may have been at fault in part - but "I knew you wouldn't answer" to cast you as the coward who fled from her responsibility, however many times you may have actually met it.
Please feel free to verbally punt his testicles into his pituitary ad lib. He is so worthy of it. He begs for it.
So that is how "functionally illiterate" is used. Thanks! I didn't know.

Hey, if someone attacks me I attack back. It sounds like you didn't follow the entire conversation. I won't be called a bigot by Skom, I won't be told I'm bad at science by a conspiracy theorist like Black Thunder, who doesn't seem to understand what "evidence" is.

I'm sorry, but I fight back. I'm not going to take insults just to be nice.

It was then that the merry duo embarked on the last journey of their lives, each looking forward to his secret prank of removing the other's parachute, and replacing it with dirty socks.

Each confident that they could save their friend by sharing his own parachute, they dove headlong into the wind, oblivious to their fates. One can only imagine the looks on their faces, the roller coaster of emotions, and the last thoughts they held before greeting the Earth.

I for one, would like to believe that they each respected the other's awesome prank, and could not fault each other for doing the same thing. What are the odds? Surely they held no ill will towards each other. How could they? Yes, I believe they died as friends, laughing and smiling, performing as much physical comedy as they could given the situation, like flapping their "wings" or doing a cannonball pose. That is what I choose to believe.

I agree, and that is good enough for me. The Druids are still around. That's what I call a polite religion - Druidism. I would be satisfied with that status for the Christians.
As I've said countless times, even under humanist hegemony, they'll always be free to nail some jingly bells and a chicken dipped in lamb's blood to a stick and shake it at the full moon in the privacy of their own back yards and churches if that's what they think centers their lives and gives them meaning, purpose, and moral grounding. Who cares?
But the church isn't satisfied to keep its beliefs confined to the lives of believers, and the rest of us don't care what the chicken thinks about gay marriage, sex education, stem cell research, school prayer, extramarital sex between consenting adults, abortion, evolution, or anything else.
Since the Christians don't seem to respect that or much else except their church, we need to gently exhort them until they do so.
After that, I can't imagine why any of us would ever think about them again. Do you think about the Druids much?
Outside of these threads, I don't think of Christianity much, except when they interrupt my life. It's rare here, but sometimes you get the occasional Jehovah's Witness begging you to think about the afterlife from their perspective. I just tell them I'm not interested - rarely have to use less respectful language.

Here, they really are like the druids.

Are you familiar with Bruce Lee?
"Running water never grows stale. So you just have to 'keep on flowing.'"
"Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend."
Ideologies must adapt to survive. If they are inflexible, they will eventually break. Christian Fundamentalism in America is currently straining to the breaking point. It won't survive the next 20 years. Christian Humanism will likely become more predominant in the next cultural shift, along with other progressive religions and Deism. I think it's likely that after Christianity loses majority status, those that are still religious will be far more comfortable, because the country will become more religiously neutral. It will be better for everybody if there isn't one powerful religion pushing it's weight around.
Bonsoir Monsieur, yes of course I am familiar with him and his philosphy. Yes, ideologies must adapt to survive and my Christian Humanism contains elements of many different teachings I am also very strong on inter-faith and dialogue, something that Christian fundamentalists shun which is why I believe they shall go extinct. Religions and people who push their weight around are bullies. Jesus was no bully so why have so many Christians become bullies? It is an epidemic that must change. Seraphine and I are masters of Aikido so yes water is the best strategy. I believe in pacifism and non-violence but I also believe in self-defense we were drawn to Aikido for its philosophy of spherical movement and redirection of the opponent's energy we learned it in Kyoto, Japan years ago under the same Sensei. She was barely five feet tall and a Shintoist.

I feel so guilty now for ever finding the "stories" of these authors interesting. And all they're asking is that...ah, forget it.
Now, I'm wondering if I should find Dan Brown's novels interesting?
Oh, you're welcome to find them interesting. That's quite a bit different than telling me I should use them to base testable hypotheses about the past on.

I'm sure they're as interesting as modern day fiction, perhaps more so if you're trying to understand what themes compelled past peoples.
