Do you think that people automatically mistaken you for a believer just because you use currency that says "In God We Trust" on it?
Pathetic. What if I said the same: Do you think that people automatically mistaken you for a unbeliever just because you use currency that doesn't mention gods?

But, the term is capitalized on our currency, so...
Is that right? The letter is a capital, but the word is not capitalized.
"Capitalize - to write or print with an initial capital or in capitals"

how about this, instead. How about if it just doesn't matter, at all, what's on our currency, considering that we use it already anyway, even with what it says on it.
How about THIS instead: How about since it does matter, that we unbelievers assume the majority and change it?

I mean, why not, also, ask that the Washington Monument be taken down considering that it derives from the Egyptian obelisk and represents the adoration and worship of the sun-god, Ra, or the petrified ray of the Aten? Or, do you not mind that? And what's your feelings regarding George Washington being portrayed as Zeus, in sculpture?
I don't find either of those exclusionary or offensive. They aren't making a statement about what an American believes.

The Bible says God wrote the Bible. The Bible threatens a harsh punishment to anyone modifying the Bible. The Bible threatens eternal torture to anyone who doesn't accept the truth of the Bible.
The Bible was written by men of absolutely no special standing. The Bible is a product of the culture in which it was written. It represents values that by all rights, should have been discarded long ago. It is unfortunate that so many believed it to be the word of an actual deity. That is an honest tragedy. The world has suffered greatly for it.
Good post!

The Christians are finding defending their bible more untenable every year, and are trying a have it both ways: call it a holy book worthy of intense study and obedience, while simultaneously blaming its errors on men. The problem there is glaring to anybody not burdened with that confirmation bias.

It is enough that we teach these ideas to the undecided, not try to elicit the agreement or cooperation of the faithful - a pointless undertaking.

Here's a thought: why don't you spam the thread with endless reams of scripture? You'll never run out of "wall" space.

Remember this, RiversideRedneck? You posted this, RiversideRedneck.

<quoted text>
In that post you made, you specifically said the story was faked by atheists. I searched the article you linked to, and it doesn't mention atheists at all. I pointed this out in this response. http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/topstor...
You said the story was faked by atheists.
It wasn't. The report was actually faked by a member of Judaism, and several Christian sites promoted it, too. I discovered that, and posted this http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...
You said this.
<quoted text>Why would you say that? It's a very specific statement.
Could you supply the link where > you < read that it "exposes a fake atheist report" ? I looked in a pretty thorough search across the Internet, and never found anything that even remotely indicated that was a "faked atheist report". Nothing.
When I asked you about that, you said:
<quoted text> http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/topstor...
But, you'd already said that it was a faked atheist report. How did you know it was a fake atheist report when you say that they weren't going to openly admit it was an atheist report?
Did you lie?
<quoted text>
Your Jesus! is watching, RiversideRedneck.
Nicely done.

Don't blame Jesus. Blame Christianity.
Jesus was misunderstood guy that died 2000 years ago.
I use the terms interchangeably, like Uncle Sam and America.

I'm not sure that such a person ever lived. And if he did, I don't know which of the words attributed to him he actually spoke.

Furthermore, I disagree with much of what is attributed to him, and find most of the rest to be either useless theology, or regurgitated ethics widely known for centuries and taken from other cultures.

What contribution did Jesus make to ethical theory or anything else? What is there to admire so deeply in the legend of a mostly nice guy that wandered about promoting a mostly nice agenda? Johnny Appleseed was also a nice, itinerant guy on a mission. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Appleseed

JESUS was definitely a role model of the Highest; if we could all simulate HIS loving and caring actions, including how HE acted in the Temple, the world would be a much better place.
Then you approve of somebody angrily rebuking established religion even to the point of overturning tables in disgust and contempt? I consider that a good example as well.

How do you feel about Jesus' behavior with that fig tree?

http://news.yahoo.com/anti-israel-remarks-tes... Why should anyone be surprised?? This is exactly what you what expect from a Skull-n-Bones member. America told Kerry they didn't want him for president,but now he's the Secretary of State. End-time Bible prophecy,America.

Today's Prayer

Lord, I'm reminded today of that old hymn "When We Walk with the Lord." It says "what You say, we will do, where You send we will go; never fear, only trust and obey." Help my condition, Lord, that I will not fear, but that will walk with You all the days of my life and have faith to always trust and obey, and leave the outcome to You. In Your name I pray. Amen.

Prime time with God

Encouraging Words....

To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning.

http://news.yahoo.com/anti-israel-remarks-tes... Man,this sinkhole stuff is like CRAZY. It's like 'quicksand from Satan'or somethig. All of man's making....of course. A man-made attempt to make a place like Florida a 'paradise' is,in REALITY,is turning it into a living hell. Now many people living in certain areas of Florida will fear that parts of their property,or parts of the state,could cave in and sink at any given moment.

http://news.yahoo.com/ark-police-photograph-l... Don't guess if you're,say,some man in a Mercedes-Benz,who just happens to also be a white-collar theif,he'll have anything to worry about,as far as getting his licenseplate scanned is concerned(rest easy,fella,that guy in that policecar has absolutely NO IDEA that you've been stealing money from your comany,and or investors)...BUT,let me guess,based on,WHAT,God-forbid,R-A-C-I-A-L P-R-O-F-I-L-I-N-G,you may be more likely to have your licenseplate photgraghed,and or scanned. Looks like tha''brothas' and the hispanics just got another reason to be paranoid when the bluelights get behind them,huh??!

<quoted text>So, I follow the link, and you said atheists were responsible for the fake story. I look. I look because it, to me, was despicable that an atheist would fake a report that could cause so much violence.
But it wasn't generated by an atheist.
I asked where you read that it was generated by an atheist, and you have not supplied the link where:
You said you read it was faked by an atheist. The link below explains who faked the report.

<quoted text> No, why would they? An atheist didn't fake the report.
They know exactly who faked the report. It was not an atheist. It was an Abrahamic theist.
<quoted text> You mean why would an Abrahamic theist lie?
You tell me.
I did tell you. It's sad that you kept all that. I've already answered you like 4 times.

Dies that say anywhere that it's "made by atheists"??
