No worries about Illuminatrix - she's a coward and has nothing of value to say. All she ever writes is "I would tell you what's wrong with you, but I won't at this time..."

She emulates a clueless junior high school girl quite well.

The percentage of Christians among Singaporeans increased from 12.7% in 1990 to 17.5% in 2010.[26]
South Korea South Korea
Further information: Christianity in Korea

Malaysia
Further information: Christianity in Malaysia
According to a Hindu organization, 130,000 people have converted from Hinduism to Christianity between 1965 and 1990. Around 97,000 joined the Methodist Church and the rest mostly joined various Protestant denominations, as well as 2,500 who joined the Catholic Church.[24
Norway Norway
Further information: Christianity in Norway
It is estimated that Orthodoxy is the fastest growing religious faith in Norway with a growth rate from 2000 to 2009 at 231.1%.[2
Further information: Christianity in Canada
In the Canada 2001 Census[21][3][4][5][6] 72% of the Canadian population list Roman Catholicism or Protestantism as a religion. The Roman Catholic Church in Canada is by far the country's largest single denomination. Those who listed no religion account for 16% of total respondents. In British Columbia, however, 35% of respondents reported no religion—more than any single denomination and more than all Protestants combined.[7]. For further information on historically significant religions in Canada, please see Religion in Canada.

All rich Countries. Norway and Canada, western countries. Education is not scarce in none of those countries and Christianity has been part of those countries history for hundreds of yrs.
And in the developing where Christianity is growing, you think you're somehow better than those people?
Typical Secular Humanist immoral arrogance.

Oh! And our discussion - so far the only worthwhile argument I've had on here - and refreshing.

Thank you for the intelligent discussion. Against you, I put up a serious fight because it's the only debate worth having and you're the only worthy opponent worth writing to.

What?
Hitler: "The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death.... When understanding of the universe has become widespread... Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity.... Christianity has reached the peak of absurdity.... And that's why someday its structure will collapse.......the only way to get rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little.... Christianity the liar.... We'll see to it that the Churches cannot spread abroad teachings in conflict with the interests of the State."

Okay, so Hitler started out as a Catholic and backslid out of Catholicism.

You are wuite uneducated. In the Greek of the NT texts and the Latin versions of the earliest Bible in existence, the words used are exactly that of Zeus and Jupiter.

As for your English version, the word God is ultimately derived from the Sanskrit word for self (khuda).

So in English you are worshipping yourself, not even a deity. LOL

You have no clue about your own religion and the words you all bandy about. Feel free to babble, don't try to BS those of us who are educated in such matters.

Stop lying - either present the research (which you have entirely failed to do so far) or admit you're committed to an unsupportable belief system.
Oh, wait, you can't admit that since you're a believer. Nevermind, why don't you:
1. not bother to present evidence, as is your wont
2. attack and insult me more since you're not intelligent enough to support your belief system
~~~grin~~LOL.

Look here atheist.

Dr Parnia and his army of researchers, their findings to not threaten my beliefs, they threaten yours.

The Scientific Research and findings,only affirms what I already know, that the self/psyche/soul is a separate entity from the human brain.

So I understand if you want to deny Dr Parnia and the hundreds of scientists their scientific findings.

But excuse me if I believe Dr Parnia and the hundreds of scientists working on and establishing the science.

And not believe Dr [do little], the religious slave on the billboard, and not take what you say seriously either, because you use enculturation to explain everything, even why a bear takes a crap in the woods. iyai!lol.

Really? You question that? All that I have said is that without religion, there would be less strife in the world. To me, the truth of that is obvious.
If you took the religious people out of this thread, there would be no or almost no fighting. Every single example of abusive language in this thread is either a Christian-to-Christian post or a Christian-to-unbeliever post. If you can find a single counterexample of an unbeliever calling another unbeliever liar, bigot, pervert, abomination or any other such term, I will reconsider my claim.
And if you can't, will you reconsider?
I am sorry Ians you seem to be stating that it is a fact that if all the religious people were off the thread there would be no or almost no fighting, and in my opinion you can not know that.

I have been treated badly by many non-Christians on topix, so to say that only religious people do this, would be incorrect. I do not turn a blind eye on what someone does as a believer and I do see what you are saying. I do not only question religion though. Things such as location, education, and background are very important when it comes to understanding the dynamics. I moved from Ann Arbor MI to a holler in the Mountains of NC and had a bit of an eye opener at that time in my life. From growing up in a diverse and booming college town, where Christian Churches and Jewish temples (as one example) at times share buildings -and moving to a place where some folks did not have power or running water, also where I first started hearing about fire and brimstone from the pulpit.

Perhaps my problem is with generalizations <<shrugs>> Some examples of what has been said to me in the past using your words above: I have been told by non-Christians that I am a bigot because I am a Christian, and if I really follow the faith there is no way not to be one. I have been called a liar because I said that I was raised to use logic and was told, if one is a Christian they can’t use any logic. I have not been directly called a pervert, but have been told that my God is one because he is so worried about what everyone does in bed. When it comes to abomination….no, can not tell you that I have ever had a non-Christian call me that. In my opinion educated people don’t tend to say such things, regardless of what they do or don’t believe in. I have been smacked at by Christians and non Christians alike. I am not saying that to complain, in fact it has helped me to discover quite a bit about myself and others. So the real question was if religion was completely off the table….gone….would there actually be less strife? I do not know, but in answer to your question, yes - I honestly have been questioning it.

Because what he write was foolishness.

My argument is Wikepedia. I not have to argue when I can just get the facts and link it.

I here to discuss. Discussions are my opinions. Facts, are Facts.

Peace_Warrior just finished enumerating the kinds of people that treated her with kindness when she was on the streets, and how the Christians just spat at her. Perhaps you'd like to review it:
http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...

And your response? "At the end of the day, haters are going to hate and people fight."

That's it?

At the beginning of the day, there are more haters in churches than outside of them, especially Sundays. Hate is the sermon: Hate your families. Hate the world. Hate your flesh. Hate gays. Hate unbelievers. Judge everybody as unfit and sinful.

And when the world hates you back for it, smugly call count that as evidence that you are too good for it as you tell its people what a failure the world is.

Your whole religion is based on what your god hates: man's nature, and those of us that won't worship it.

And you call it all love:

"I love you, brother, and so does Jesus, which is why we are telling you that your version of Christianity is inferior and you are hellbound. God bless you, brother. Remember, Jesus loves you and so do I."

Turn humans into cyborgs so we all think alike and are the same? I'm curious, how far are you going to take it? You must be very powerful, going by your speeches. Are you a Communist?
I have no idea what that was about, unless you are trying to convert my claim that Christian teaching is the source of all of the bad manners seen in this thread strife into a straw man that all strife everywhere arises from religion. As I have told several others, one of the most useful ways to use language is to make a clear and explicit statement of what you are thinking rather than merely an inference.
