Whoever we are, Wherever we're from, We shoulda noticed by now our behavior is dumb.

And if our chances, expect to improve , It's gonna take a lot more than tryin' to remove the other race or the other whatever from the face of the planet altogether. They call it THE EARTH, Which is a dumb kinda name but they named it right cause we behave the same...

We are dumb all over. Dumb all over, Yes we are Dumb all over, near'n far dumb all over black 'n white. People, we is not wrapped tight. Nurds on the left nurds on the right. Religious fanatics on the air every night sayin' the bible tells the story. Makes the details sound real gory 'bout what to do If the geeks over there don't believe in the book we got over here ...

You can't run a race without no feet 'N pretty soon there won't be no street for dummies to jog on or doggies to dog on religious fanatics can make it be all gone(I mean it won't blow up 'N disappear it'll just look ugly for a thousand years...)

You can't run a country by a book of religion. Not by a heap or a lump or a smidgeon of foolish rules of ancient date designed to make you all feel great while you fold, spindle and mutilate those unbelievers from a neighboring state TO ARMS! TO ARMS! Hooray! That's great~

Two legs ain't bad unless there's a crate they ship the parts to mama in. For souvenirs: two ears (Get down!) Not his, not hers (but what the hey?) The Good Book says: "It's gotta be that way!" But their book says: "REVENGE THE CRUSADES... With whips 'n chains 'N hand grenades..."

TWO ARMS? TWO ARMS? Have another and another. Our God says: "There ain't no other!" Our God says: "It's all okay!". Our God says "This is the way!". It says in the book: "Burn 'n destroy...'N repent,'n redeem 'N revenge,'n deploy 'N rumble thee forth to the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side 'cause they don't go for what's in the book 'N that makes 'em BAD

So verily we must choppeth them up and stompeth them down or rent a nice French bomb to poof them out of existence while leaving their real estate just where we need it. To use again for temples in which to praise OURGOD!("Cause he can really take care of business!")

And when his humble TV servant With humble white hair and humble glasses and a nice brown suit and maybe a blonde wife who takes phone calls tells us our God says It's okay to do this stuff

Then we gotta do it,'cause if we don't do it, We ain't gwine up to hebbin!(Depending on which book you're using at the time...Can't use theirs...it don't work ...it's all lies...Gotta use mine!...) Ain't that right? That's what they say every night...Everyday...

Hey, we can't really be dumb If we're just following God's Orders. Hey, let's get serious...God knows what he's doin' He wrote this book here an'the book says: He made us all to be just like Him," so... If we're dumb...Then God is dumb...(An' maybe even a little ugly on the side)- Frank Zappa

Hello Benedict,
Who are you to define "poor citizen".
By your own admission you chose to take your ball and leave your country. Now you're a man without a country.

It should also be noted that when you turned your back on your country and her people that you also forfeited your right to critique.

When I envision you I see a hateful ol bastard in a wheelchair, on the edge of a golf course, looking out over the ocean, and sitting in a pile of his own feces. I'll bet the horsefly's leave a nasty welt on your ol withered skin.

If you weren't such a foul ol muleskinner perhaps one of your nurses would care. Sadly though, no one gives a damn.

Perhaps it's time you make that last great effort and wheel yourself into the pool. Your first breath could be your last. At least you would be free of your anger.

Please allow me to speak for the people you turned your back on; boohoo and good riddance comrade.

This post was to 'mike'... and with respect, an aswer hurts no-one.
Prayer is autmatic - a 24/7 way of Life – some would call it a meditation, but there is no ritual just staying tuned without a TV or radio for such. It is no different to where I began life, in an Indigenous way, and has proven very valuable as well as very true to the words I might utter before an event – or if the cops want help – leads straightr to the problem. Plus too true... not to believe there is more to life than meets the eye of proof., leaving the door open for all things being possible in my book, to God.
Well... you have an epistle here...
I see you want to discuss your no God beliefs with others, and there being no proof of myths and things, but I cannot vouch for anything where no proof is only from books, or human beings. I know that my Jesus lives, have seen him, plus as he has no Father on earth, I do believe him 100%, and will go so far as to say a bride, anything you say I would automatically defend... for even you cannot prove I have not seen and spoken with him face to face many times. Any disbelief then of this, would leave us both without further conversation.
Take Care.
Thank you for that post, though I will admit that a few comments I am not sure I understand (perhaps your style of writing or shortforms for some things have confused me).

I gather you live in a place which is perhaps not as well to do as I do, and that you are also somewhat not as mobile as I am. I am sorry to learn that you suffered from polio. That has been pretty well eliminated in my country for quite a number of years, though there are some older people that survived it that I have come across in my life.

I am 66 now, and retired, but I have not worked at a job since I was 47, due to mental problems, severe anxiety and acute depression (perhaps not the exact clinical names). I have a university education, and was a whiz in my grade school and high school education, and started off that way in university, but finding a girlfriend, who I married before completing university, and the general boredom of studying perhaps made me back off a bit on my studies such that I did not graduate near the top of my class, but I did get the same degree as others.

My work life and a rather disruptive married life (first marriage) kind of led to my eventual mental problems (likely a lot deeper than that). Because I was on a longterm disability for many years I would not have reached anywhere near the average income of my fellow university graduates, though my prospects for exceeding them, when I was in school, was likely very good.

Since I have been able to go on winter vacations up to 2 months starting in 2007, with my current wife, one would think I must be well off, but I think we likely are generally very frugal spenders, and manage to have enough money to travel plus live. We live in a fairly cheap apartment, and I have had no car since late 2010, which makes it cheaper for us, as the cost of a car is much higher than the public transit costs locally, and when I need a car for long distance infrequent travel I rent one for a few days, which is much cheaper than having one sitting costing me money all the time.

During the first years of my life, we had no running water in our home, and I was likely close to my teens before we had a shower in our bathroom.

I too have difficulty handling compliments, although if they are sincere and I think they are deserved I am grateful.

Your bible was composed for illiterate, unwashed goatherds. I think that I can understand that. How is it possible not to understand your bible?

I understand that much of it is poetry, meaning that it has whatever meaning you wish it to have like other figurative language.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Literal_and_figu...

But can you show me any passages at all using definite, literal language where that meaning isn't obvious? For example, if you say that a day in Genesis is a literal day, it's pretty clear what the words mean. Everything was poofed into existence in just under a week. And if you want to call that allegory - i.e., figurative language or poetry - then it means whatever each reader wants it to mean.

You can only make your bible seem lofty and ponderous by pretending that it has definite meanings that are to found deep below the surface after intense meditation.

How about these two?:

[1] "He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers." - Proverbs 6:13

[2] "the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a serpent on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden" - Proverbs 30:19

Would you say that are poetry? If you do - and I do - then there is zero information content there. No wisdom. Reading it purely an evocative, aesthetic experience.

Or do you say the opposite - that it is literal language embodying some definite truth that one can benefit by knowing?

Some of us came to hopefully share what we have in common and to narrow the gap between us.

Neither side seems to want that to happen.

We don't have to agree on everything...at least that is my opinion...seems that others have a different opinion...from both sides.

This is part of a post that was left for me on a different forum...I thought it held truth for both sides...

1 Timothy 3
Qualifications for Overseers
3 The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. 2 Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, 5 for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God's church? 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.
Qualifications for Deacons
8 Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. 9 They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11 Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. 13 For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
The Mystery of Godliness
14 I hope to come to you soon, but I am writing these things to you so that, 15 if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth. 16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:
He was manifested in the flesh,
vindicated by the Spirit,
seen by angels,
proclaimed among the nations,
believed on in the world,
taken up in glory.

Poetry. The words have no literal meaning. The have no referent outside of the heads of men. They point to nothing out there that actually exists.

We'd be just as well of with the flace and stace of Jesus Christ as with his grace. Or Santa's grace. They are all just words that evoke psychological experiences.

That writer boooots is quite perplexing. Not even [it ain't necessarily so]go so far off the deep end. The boooots writer actually criticize Christians for writings the bible, in an attempt to make the Christians write less bible? He can't be that foolish. I mean he write like he got a little bit of sense, so how can he really misjudge such a request?
A normal person would know if an unbeliever ask a Christian to talk or write less about the bible because it annoy them, they going to do the opposite, talk and write more of the bible. If they keep it up, the christians on here might just do nothing else, but write the bible on the billboard.
Sometimes unbelievers make it too easy to pity them.
Trifecta1, from that post, I am guessing your first language is not English (English is my only language, though I was a very high scholar in French during my high school days - high school French here though does not make you conversant in French, unless you get involved with French people and speak the language a lot. Canadian French is hard to understand anyway since our school French is based on Parisian French, and our French Canadians do not necessarily speak it). That is just a comment with no meaning to it.

I only criticize Christians for writing Bible verses, because IMO, they do so, rather than reply to whatever the other person has said to them.

Because a non-believer does not believe that Bible verses are from a god, unless they help explain a particular comment, they are redundant (in my case at least) and I have had a lot of experience with people just doing that to spam the site, rather than participate in discussion.

My experience in Christianity and the Bible is probably as much or even more than most other posters here, if for no other reason than the number of years I was a Christian and how very seriously I felt about being a Christian. Having said that though, I was never one for quoting Bible verses, out of context, or of even carrying a Bible around with me, nor did I read the Bible daily as some people tell you is a must if one wants to get to heaven.

I am sorry you find me perplexing, as I do not want to be perplexing to anyone. I have learned to be quite nasty on Topix at times though, because on several other Topix sites, we had to deal with a few "Christians' daily who were very abusive to other posters, and that finally got to me, so that I started retaliating.

Anyone, who disagrees with me, but treats me with respect, has had no problems with me, except in some cases I forget (I do have a short term memory problem) which poster they are, and say something to them, thinking they are a different person. I need to watch that more.
