You came in here and saw us. We have nothing to prove to you people. You want to tell us why we're so wrong and how our beliefs are myths and superstitions, then come with some evidence and solid reasoning. Of course, all you guys do is sling accusations then you complain about being judged. Time the hypocrisy stops feller; show us what your 21st century brain is capable of.

I completely agree. Being blind or deaf (or whatever) is just different. Who are those who can hear and see to say that such people miss out on anything? Blind and deaf people focus more on the abilities they have; they can specialize, while the rest of us are generalists. They might notice more details with their other senses than we do.
And as I pointed out before, there is plenty that humans can't sense at all. We can normally only hear and see in a very narrow band of sound and light. Are our lives impoverished because we can't see in the X-ray spectrum? Or hear frequencies below 20 hertz? Humans also don't have wings, so should birds consider us handicapped because we cannot fly, and pity us?
And just think about the scorn cats have for us.
You can never own a cat, they own you and let you know it.

According to your favorite person, Saul/Paul, women can only be saved by giving birth ("if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety"). 1 Timothy 2:15
According to Biblical Scholars of the last 200 years, Timothy 1&2 are not authentic letters from Paul. AS much as I dislike Paul, I can;t pin this rubbish on him.

"Nineteenth and twentieth century scholarship questioned the authenticity of the letter, with many scholars suggesting that First Timothy, along with Second Timothy and Titus, are not original to Paul, but rather an unknown Christian writing some time in the late-first-to-mid-2nd century.[2] Most scholars now affirm this view.[3]"

I have been feeling it for some time now. Most won't understand but you might. My daughter aske me a few days ago what was wrong. I told her I don't know, but it's not good. Something is not right. Great sorrow.
You are there in America I believe... and much is not right in many places on earth. But I do understand such feelings - and thankfully my husband believes me having witnessed enough - but sadly... they have 99% turned out to be right. The immediate tragedies are in truth going on all the time somewhere, but others seem to hit our senses hard and awake, even if asleep at the time.
eg. I was being shown round Ozland in a camper-van for 5 years, yet woke wide awake just as the pentagon was hit, and saw it on the TV.+ the towers fall. The other was the Japan tsunami / Fukushima. Just mentioning these 2 here, but been like this all my life... Maybe a result of being involved in so much rescue work...+ war zones. But if even the ants know to head to higher trees, or the creatures higher ground, we are not 'without felling' for suffering souls if such tragedies are in the air. What gets me is that no-one counts 'religion' then! It's called 'C~A~R~I~N~G'
Be safe B/man and God Bless.

We have to be far more ambidextrous--scissors are a good example. Right-handed people have no idea.

Another chip of the same block, both have their roots in the Jewish religious fanatics, the Galilean or Zealots. After their uprising led to the destruction of Jerusalem, three Zealot tribes moved to the Arabian desert where they lived in three oases. There they started to convert Arabs to their beliefs. Jews were very much proselyting in those days. That is the root cause of all this religious fanaticism today.
The claim that Mohammed improved the position of the woman is totally untrue. In fact Mohamed himself started his career as an employee of a Widow. Because he showed promise she promoted him to caravan leader.
She asked him to marry her! She was 15 years older. She was 40 and he was 25. So who was the boss? During his entire marriage Mohammed never dared lay eyes on another women and was monogamous. After she died he married some 14 other women and had sex with 22.
Why do women have to veil themselves? the reason was that one afternoon Mohamed visited his closest friend and nephew Ali. He was not at home his wife told him. Mohamed saw the bare skin of his friends wife and got so sexually attracted to here, that he wanted her.
He made his friend Ali divorce his wife, so he could marry her. This outraged the community. Mohammed then had a new revelation from God (he would fall to the ground and move wildly like in an epileptic attack). then he said God had said he should marry the women and his men accepted it. That is when the blame was put on the women. The wife had enticed Mohammed. Man were simply not strong enough to resist such an attack. All women had to be veiled.
So what about Islam? It is the same religious monopoly as Christianity and like Christianity is has a tradition of oppressing women. All ideologies are creations of man, not women. Christianity and Islam are purely male affairs. Simply look at the Christian God, he is three things:
- Father = male
- Son = male
- spirit = male
You may not know this but spirit is male, nature is female (It is Mother Nature and Father heaven), So even if the Christian god has three aspects they are all purely male. Nothing female allowed. The spirit must free itself from the body (Matter from Mater or mother) The man must reject the woman to be free. In fact homosexuality among males was also based on this. Women were considered to low for real love, they were only good for reproduction, to produce sons, more males.
These religions are hopelessly rigid and incomplete and run by males. That is the underlying problem. Free the woman and better religion will come from this. Than we can enjoy life like normal healthy people again without this distrust of pleasure of the flesh.
But you can not force this. These religions are based on male dominance, on war. To overcome that females must use their own force which is true love. Man do not have true love. Read the Bible, Jesus love is male love. A father's love is demanding discipline. A father will say: I don't like this, but am doing this for you. I repress my love for you, so you will learn.(see the sadomasochism in this)
If we can restore religion like in old Egypt or Greece in which Women play an equal part than everything will become more harmonious again. Yes women have to save the world, not man with their theoretical ideas and ideals. And they must do it by demanding their share, but not by starting to behave like a man. Man and Women are fundamentally different beings.
Women will change Islam, you wait, and you will see. Women are not weak, they are mentally stronger than man, if they can put their mind to something.

Where in the Bible does it condone slavery? In the passage where it says slaves obey your masters you need to read the entire passage it is making the point that when we get dealt a bad hand (such as amaster beating his slave for no reason or even being a slave) we turn over our suffering to God instead of reacting badly or violently.
That's a nice god you worship there.

I'll bet he cares about hostages and rape victims just as much as slaves, people who would also be well advised to obey their tormentors.

<quoted text> We can certainly say Christianity is not a myth. The religion certainly exists, but the core elements that comprise Christianity, are mythic.
Yes but it is not Myth, they used pieces of Myths and changed them to fit in the storyline and gave them a literal meaning.

That is not Myth, they could have invented the stories from scratch but that is so damn difficult. It is very difficult to write an interesting story. It is far easier to recycle older stories. Like I wrote before: the Jesus story is something like the Roman: The best of all time hero's.

What the most shocking thing is about Christianity, is that you think it is truly an original story until you start investigating it and discover it is just a patch work of older stories. There is nothing original about Jesus, nothing at all.

It is such a shameless copy Christians had to invent an entirely new excuse, they call it "foreshadowing". Meaning if this text is as previous texts that is because these previous texts are copying from Jesus.

Hilarious. But a Christians will eat any crap as he is a believer. A believer even prides himself in believing crap. In fact it is the true test of your belief, to believe crap. Only then are you devil proof. If someone says something truly convincing, he must surely be the devil! Resist that!

Christianity murders honesty, honour, integrity, unbiased rational thinking, and many other virtues and replaces them with blind obedience. This was the highest virtue for Roman slaves, obedience! They did not have to think for themselves, just obey and be loyal to their lord, their Dominus.

Christianity is not myth, it is fantasy, but to the believers it is fact.
Like the last Pagan Roman emperor and philosopher Julian wrote:
It is, I think, expedient to set forth to all mankind the reasons by which I was convinced that the fabrication of the Galilaeans is a fiction of men composed by wickedness. Though it has in it nothing divine, by making full use of that part of the soul which loves fable and is childish and foolish, it has induced men to believe that the monstrous tale is truth.
The writers are very much aware how absurd it all is and that is why they write a rebuttal in the text itself. They do that all the time to ward of criticism that could make the believer doubt. They simply admit it is nonsense! A superb clever cunning rebuttal.
1 Corinthians 1:18
[ Christ Crucified Is God’s Power and Wisdom ] For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:21
For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.
1 Corinthians 1:25
For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
1 Corinthians 2:14
The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 3:19
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written:“He catches the wise in their craftiness”;
that is why you will never be able to convince a fundamentalist Christian, all the rebuttals are already in the text and christians only have to learn them by heart. That the answers are nonsensical is no problem, they have this ring of heroism that makes them feel true to the believer.

Christianity is a superb ideology from the viewpoint of mass control. A real mind fuck. It uses emotions to steer people into obedience.

Well, to be fair, I will grant that Christian ideology was an improvement over Judaism. And Christianity today is hardly consistent. Look at the multitude of sects that it has fragmented into. Certainly some sects are pretty bad, such as the many American literalist fundie ones. But others are far more benign, and focus more on love and acceptance and the actual message attributed to Jesus, such as the Anglicans (at least in Europe and America) and Unitarians.
Of the majority of Christians, Jews and Muslims I have known over the decades, most are very nice people and don;t take their religion very seriously. I find Reform Judaism, Moderate Islam, and Congregational/Non-Denominatio nal Christians to be not much different from each other in their rational thinking and acceptance of the modern world (IE: Science).

I have also found that racism, bigotry and hatred although sometimes fueld by religion (as excuses) it is not a function of religion but rather culture, geography, education and economics.

That has been my experience anyway.
