Jesus Christ is alive and well in the kingdom of Heaven, and he is one with the Father ( Almighty God ), Shrink leaves a lot to be desired by the way that he words his opinions often, but what you have just posted is pure ignorance at it's max and a lie straight from the pit of Hell that your father has placed within your mind at his will.

<quoted text> And you are obviously a blittering idiot, the type of facts that you are looking for is not conducive to faith, it is because we chose to employ faith through believing God is why we have an understanding of so many things that you and others do not, because faith and belief in God and his Word opens up the door to understanding all things from a spiritual based level that the world as a whole cannot receive through the wisdom of men, which pales sickly in comparison against the wisdom of God.
And I know that I am opening the flood gates of ignorance you by asking, but by what assumption is obvious to you that I am not following God's Word?
John 20:26-29
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
1 Corinthians 1:18-27
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
An "understanding of things" isn't saying "my god did it" and thinking that's true.
To actually have an understanding of things, you must actually understand those things.

Which part of being a female Asian atheist teenaged vegan homosexual amputee is a normal part of your life?
lol, good joke :)
I mean a physical injury is pretty normal situation as our bodies aren't able to withstand a lot. Being in a n auto accident pretty much guarantees survivors are going to have injuries. I guess I just don't see why people would treat someone any different that they would if someone had their arm in a cast. Yet I know they do.

But yeah you do march to the beat of your own drummer and a lot of those things aren't as common as other things. I would imagine you get a lot of judgement.

I know it is easy to say who cares what people think and at your age I definitely cared more than I did later but I wasn't too much older than you when I had the stigma of being an ex-con and an addict. And considering those things are self-induced (at least 100% so in the minds of most people) I pretty much got it from all sides. But for the most part I generally just don't care what other people think. The situation is what it is and most of the population could handle it if the roles were reverses

See that is kind of the weird thing about how we can screw up our own minds. We know a lot of people are not that smart or they are ignorant or racist or bigoted or uninformed. If it didn't involve us personally, would people like that be the kind of people whose opinion you thought should be considered important?

I know it is easier said then done and it does take some time and the more and more you get comfortable in your own skin, the more and more you will shed the labels for yourself. Nothing about being a "female Asian atheist teenaged vegan homosexual amputee" dictates you owe and apology or explanation to anyone. And given how most people are, being different can be a good thing. Being paty of the herd isn't all its cracked up to be

Just keep being you my friend. The older you get, the easier it becomes. I am not going to pretend it is all mind over matter. The leg obvious is something real you have to deal with. But the rest of that, I could form a list like that about just about anything. That is the other thing to keep in mind. Not only being part of the herd isn't something I would want, but the reality is there are very few "normal" people.

I mean I know society dictates what is supposed to be "normal" but everybody has their quirks. Everyone has their issues. Everyone has things unique to them. People try so hard to fit in without realizing everyone around them is doing the exact same thing. Everyone is self-conscious. Everyone has their own insecurities. You are as strong person. I know this is getting repetitive but especially for your age it is kinda amazing. Just keep on truckin my friend , you are heading in the right direction

(T) Peace

.. let me rephrase my question ..
.. by quoting scripture, did you want or did you need to condemn Lasez ??..
You don't understand what the word condemn means. Certainly not in the biblical sense. It is something you should know if you are going to speak to a Christian about the Bible and claim they condemned someone.

Do you think any time someone uses the Bible be it about turning the other cheek or love thy neighbor or its views on divorce or homosexuality that they are condemning the sinner? And of course they wouldn't use scripture if they didn't feel it represented a moral path. You don't agree with her morality, she doesn't agree with yours. So what, its a free country

But she didn't condemn anyone as that has to do with their resting place of their eternal soul.

What is it that you don't understand about that?

Please try to acknowledge somewhere in your posting that I am an atheist, and many of your assumptions are not shared.

What I would say is that the priests make up the terms, and that they are unjust, unkind, and self-serving. Calling them "God's terms" does not change any of that for me.

What would be the point in existing if God controlled every step of our lives?
Again? What god?

But OK, just for you, let's pretend it exists. The point? For the pleasure of it - to please god and wind up in heaven. It would lead to eternal happiness, happiness not available to somebody like me.

If I had your will and behaved like you do toward your god, would I be expected to be any less happy than you? Smokers hope that their god will intervene and overcome their will to self-destruct. Would you answer somebody who prayed for help achieving the right mind in that area the way you did me?'What would be the point in existing if God controlled your urge to smoke and made it go away?'

How am I different for wishing that if a god existed, that he did the same for me in an even more important area, my eternal soul?

All of this is self-evident, and arguing against it is simply more apologetics: defending the reality of no god intervening with language like yours.

I don't assume that. What I have said is that the term is ill defined, that the freedom to disobey a judgmental god is not a gift, but a burden, and that if you had no free will - if your will was determined by chemistry and delivered to you, that you wouldn't know or fell the difference, nor care.

Free will that you can't distinguish from a deterministic process is a disaster if your immortal soul is at stake. I don't know what fraction of humanity you expect will be damned because they have the free will to sin, but it seems like over 90%. Is that good for the human race?

Obama, Turkish prime minister discuss how to end civil war in SyriaObama,

(CNN)-- The leaders of Turkey and the United States are huddling in Washington on Thursday over how to handle the Syrian civil war, the raging conflict that has left an estimated 80,000 people dead and a few million displaced -- despite more than two years of diplomacy to halt the bloodshed.

President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, meeting in Washington, discussed how to strengthen the Syrian opposition, help the many people displaced by the war, and mobilize the international community to put more pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and forge a political transition.

They spoke as the warfare in Syria raged Thursday. The opposition Local Coordination Committees in Syria said at least 63 people were killed, including 45 in Damascus and its suburbs.

"We're going to keep increasing the pressure on the Assad regime, and working with the Syrian opposition," Obama said. "The prime minister has been on the forefront of the international effort to push for a transition to a democratic Syria without Bashar Assad. And Turkey is going to play an important role as we bring representatives of the regime and opposition together in the coming weeks."

Syrian refugees stuck in limbo
Obama said he and Erdogan agree that al-Assad needs to transfer power.

"That is the only way we're going to resolve this crisis. And we're going to keep working for a Syria that is free from Assad's tyranny, that is intact and inclusive of all ethnic and religious groups, and that's a source of stability, not extremism, because it's in the profound interest of all our nations, especially Turkey."

Turkey has been a major player in the effort to push for change in Syria, which sits on its southern border. At one time, Erdogan and al-Assad had close ties, but the war has made them antagonists. Turkey has long harbored many Syrian refugees and hosted opposition entities.

"I've made it clear again today that the United States is going to keep on helping countries in the region, including Turkey, shoulder this burden, doing our part as a major donor of humanitarian aid to the Syrian people, including those refugees in Turkey. And we're going to keep working with our Turkish partners to deliver the food, shelter and medicine that's needed to save lives."

Erdogan said ending the war and meeting the people's demands for a new government "are two areas where we are in full agreement with the United States. Supporting the opposition and Assad leaving are important issues. "

"We also agree that we have to prevent Syria from becoming an area for terrorist organizations. We also agreed that chemical weapons should not be used and all minorities and their rights should be secured. These are all priority areas for all of us," he said.

"But separate and apart from the chemical weapons, we know that tens of thousands of people are being killed with artillery and mortars and that the humanitarian crisis and the slaughter that's taking place by itself is sufficient to prompt strong international action."

He cited a "whole range of options that the United States is already engaged in" and said he preserved "the options of taking additional steps, both diplomatic and military, because those chemical weapons inside of Syria also threaten our security over the long term as well as our allies and friends and neighbors."

Syria's internally displaced
"This is also an international problem, and it's very much my hope to continue to work with all the various parties involved, including Turkey, to find a solution that brings peace to Syria, stabilizes the region, stabilizes those chemical weapons, but it's not gonna be something that the United States does by itself, and I don't think anybody in the region, including the prime minister, would think that U.S. unilateral actions in and of themselves would bring about a better outcome inside -- inside of Syria."

Diplomatic moves

On Wednesday, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling for a political transition in Syria.

The resolution, which passed by a 107-12 vote, with 59 abstentions, also condemned the government's increased use of heavy weapons and ongoing "widespread and systematic gross violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms," said a U.N. statement.

It was the fifth resolution on Syria voted by the body since 2011.

"If we are unable to do anything to stop this tragedy, then how can we sustain the moral credibility of this organization?" Assembly President Vuk Jeremic said before the vote, according to the statement.

Meanwhile, in Sweden, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov discussed the revival of a peace initiative based on last year's Geneva conference.

That conference, brokered by Russia and the United States, outlined how a transitional government could be formed in Syria.

"I think it's fair to say that both of us are confident about the direction that we're moving in and very, very hopeful that within a short period of time, the pieces will have come together fully so that the world, hopefully, will have an opportunity to be given an alternative to the violence and destruction that is taking place in Syria at this moment," Kerry said.

Lavrov cited the Russian-American proposal to convene a conference to start implementing the Geneva communique last June.

"It's self-explanatory, and what we need now is to mobilize support for this initiative on the basis of what was, I believe, in Geneva and what was proposed by Washington and Moscow: to mobilize support, first of all, by all the Syrian groups, the regime and all opposition groups; and second, by those outside actors who have influence on either one or the other Syrian group," Lavrov said.

Obama and Erdogan addressed the Geneva initiative.

"I do think that the prospect of talks in Geneva involving the Russians and representatives about a serious political transition that all parties can buy into may yield results," Obama said.

Erdogan said that "we will continue to explore what we can do together, what we can consider as part of a road map looking at Geneva and beyond."
