And yours has been the typical Christian response for this thread. You had no problem with Dim calling me "liar" without evidence, but you object to my use of the word "moron" with Dim in response to that.
You have a double standard - one for your own, and another for unbelievers. Given that, why should I respect your judgments about either Christians or non-Christians?
I will offer you your own words: To read you is to know you.
Why do you think I haven't said anything to Skom about name calling? When I read any post where people are calling each other names I more or less shudder, recalling it is easy to be drawn into these arguments that are never ending. Why do you think it has been written that there is regret and shame at some of the things written in the past and the hope that one has grown sufficiently to overcome that arrogant humanity? Indeed, to read is to know...... I most definitely agree with that

jesus is a myth he. The bible/religion was made to keep poeple in control and stop them from running mad.
Or another option... that Jesus and what He said was not a myth but real. That could be true as well right?

Good point.
I hadda think for a minute and you know how I hate that.
The difference with those examples and the anti-theist nuts is that the anti-theist nuts try to proclaim their beliefs as fact. They try their hardest to make others follow in their footsteps.
It's kinda like the anti-gun nuts or the anti-abortions nuts. They all seem to have the same attitude of "my way or the highway".
RR, I think that, for you, one minute is not nearly enough for thinking.

If you want results, you better think for a far longer time.

You might make some sense.

You're wrong, an atheist credits nothing to gods, but, theists do.
It's within that dialog between the atheist and theist concerning those deity myths, a strange thing occurs.
Theists are certain they know everything the mythical deity certainly does, or is responsible for, and also everything the mythical deity certainly does not do.
Yet, that varies from theist to theist; One says the deity did everything in 6 days; Another will say it was millions of years ago; Another says there was a world wide deluge; Another will say it was a localized event.
One will say "HA, that story is METAPHOR!", another will claim the same story to be literal.
This is what atheist observes during these conversations with theists. Multiple and widely ranging divergent beliefs - all concerning the same - and I should stress that -*the same deity*.
It isn't just the Abrahamic god(S) that the atheist sees this phenomena.
Every believer in a different deity I've ever spoken with evidences the same types of inconsistencies, concerning what their deity is, or does, or in how that deity interacts with the commonly shared reality humans operate in. Just talk to them. It's easy to see.
My position(as an atheist) remains constant and consistent. I do not have a theistic belief there are deities. I do not credit deities with anything.
The theist position is inconsistent when describing what their deity does or is, or how it operates.
So, when the atheist asks:
"Does your deity do this?" "Did your deity create that as well?" "Why did your deity make that?"
It isn't because we think your deity did anything.
We want to see what you think your deity does - and let me tell you - that answer varies from theist to theist, denomination to denomination, from one deity to another, and it's always the same.
Erratic and confused.
You all have different beliefs, even when discussing the beliefs of the believers who believe in the same deities.
None of you know what your mythical deity is about, you have some vague ideas, and some central point(a creation, laws, intents, all vague, still)
The atheist might as well be spinning a wheel with multiple answers pasted upon it concerning the mythical deity.
The results would be the same. Ask the same question 5 times, get 5 different answers.
The theist has no real idea what their mythical deity does or would be responsible for.
We(atheists) see beliefs of the theist that vary about what they believe it(deity) does, and that varies, even on the same questions, asked of the same person.
What the theist answers with today might change tomorrow.
Theism: Confusion and conflicting answers concerning their mythic deities. That they are 100% certain of.
hahaaaa
..you're surprised a religious book over 1000 pages long believers are not 100% in agreement over every single line and verse? iyailol! that should be obvious.

The only thing believers need to agree on is to accept Jesus Christ as the only credible way to know YHWH almighty God. Getting Holy Spirit baptized and knowing YHWH the almighty spiritually is the main points of Christianity. Not agreeing on a 1000 page book, but knowing YHWH the Almighty. Knowing YHWH spiritually don't come from any book.

Your god screwed everything else up. What makes you think he could do that correctly.
He made angels to worship him, and a third rebelled.
He made man while hating sin, yet man is a sinner.
And then he tried to repair that by killing off his first biosphere and starting over again, but unfortunately, used the exact same breeding stock. I don't need to tell you how that hare-brained scheme worked out. Noah was drunk and naked.
Now you want your god to tinker with DNA?
<quoted text>
That's what I'm talking about. Your god's resume is just a list of failures.
<quoted text>
We have to die? Why couldn't your god modify our DNA?
As for his plan for killing everything and weeding out the evil, how did that work out?
<quoted text>
Who made those people and put them there?
And why didn't they adapt to your god's allegedly superior morals instead of the other way around? Was their god more powerful?
<quoted text>
What your god intends doesn't seem to matter much to how things actually turn out, does it?
GOD is our DNA! Regardless of your thoughts, our DNA does everything from our creation to our death; and is amazing thinking of everything activating, creating finger nails to hair, eyelashes to toenails, making our heart beat and our blood flow..... every now and then, there are hickups in the activation, and things go awry, but in the big scheme of things, as in looking at the whole forest and not the individual trees, humans are amazing with high results of being perfectly created.

I thank GOD ~ you appear to blame HIM although you don't know HIM. Why am I surprised at that? Not....

'Leprechauns' Banned from St. Patrick's Day Parade

Someone really didn't like those leprechauns...won't even let them march in the parade.
Some people blame them for their evil mischief.
Still not an anti-leprechaun site...

But funny!

"New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly stated that they leprechauns were not allowed to participate in the parade for their own personal safety; citing that the struggling economy puts the leprechauns in a high risk category due to their extreme wealth."

God, Thank you that You are a God of second chances. I thank You for forgiving and taking me back during the times of my life when I strayed and was disobedient. I'm so sorry for disappointing loved ones in my life, and for disappointing You. Please forgive me. Please encourage me and keep me steady. I want to stay on the right course, with the right attitudes, and the right desires. Bless You Lord, for Your loving kindness, Your grace, and Your mercy. I praise You for who You are. In Jesus' name, amen.
Prime time with God
Amen :)

The atheist blaming God.
I know, I know, you're not *really* blaming God cuz you don't *really* believe in God....
BUT - Why is it that atheists always use that kind of example? "Why does God allow innocent children to die of leukemia?"
Why is it NEVER something like: "Why does God allow innocent children to be so happy with crayons?"
No, no, no. NO!!!!

I'm not blaming God.

I don't believe in any god.

I'm just pointing out that, if you DO believe in a god, you have a serious problem trying to explain how he or she or it allows innocent children to die of leukemia. Yeah, it's the unexplainable BAD stuff that you're stuck on.

You don't have to reply to this post. But if you do, please think first, and not for just a minute.

Let's say that you entertained the fact "that possibly" there was an Adam and that God created him. I know it's far-fetched for you at this point but say that is the case... would Adam have had a belly button or not?

There's a huge difference. There's no doubt the Bible exists, right?
The websites poke fun at Christians who buy into the nasty stuff in the Bible.
What's wrong with that?
Because the "nasty" stuff in the bible isn't all that nasty.

Atheists like to exaggerate the bible, cherry pick it & take every "nasty" thing out of context.

It's easier to believe it's a "nasty bible", that way they feel better about not believing.

Atheists don't want you to change your beliefs.

Atheists work against theists trying to enforce their beliefs on everyone else who don't have a theistic belief, that they should believe what a theist believes.

There are certainly theists that do that.

If that isn't you then there is no conflict.

I don't believe God "lets" people die of leukemia any more than I think God "lets" people win the Super Lotto...

Would you have an open marriage?
OK. I don't see why they would feel shame if they are all in agreement that it's what they want to do.

I'm homosexual. I can get married in my state but the Federal Government doesn't recognize it as marriage. I'm 19. I don't think I'm ready for marriage plus I don't have a girlfriend at this time. Personally, I don't think an open marriage is a good idea so to answer your question, no I wouldn't.
