Being born blind or deaf is defective and not natural. It's not a slur against them, it's just a fact. A blind or deaf person is severely limited to experience life fully.
Just as the religionist may think it is "natural" to them, except the "religionist" chooses to become "handicapped" in his thinking(in that an unproven/unnatural deity)that controls the natural world from some "magical" point beyond it's existence of creation, and accepts no rational expression that may refute that "handicapped" position.

One of the best posts from a Christian that I've seen in a while:
God uses bad people and circumstances to accomplish His ultimate goals. Think of how many blacks became Christians as a result of the slave trade. If they and their ancestors had not been brought to America, they would have remained in Africa in perpetuity, never having had a chance to hear and accept the Gospel. You fail to see the big picture. God's primary concern is our spiritual welfare, not our physical comfort.
http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/christian...
The best response to that ??? Whatever the fuckthat was:
Are you fcking serious? God couldn't just have sent Christians over to Africa to teach them? He had to ruin and destroy millions of lives,not only the slaves lives but the slave holder's lives as well. Do you have a clue as to how demoralizing slavery is on both sides?
Physical comfort? WTF? Is that all you think the slaves endured?
This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are an evil and extremely stupid and heartless person who thinks like a Nazi.

WOW!

You are an uneducated person making up your own history just like the uneducated Christians are making up their own.

Wish you all would get a real education instead of making shit up.

You are as mush a clueless moron as any babbling fundie.

Christianity did not succeed Judaism, it destroyed religious liberty and replaced it by a state ideology. it is no real religion, it is an ideology.
Protestantism was a blessing because it allowed diversity. Some denominations were quit nice, like the quakers for instance. they allowed a personal relation with God without the clergy. But real religious freedom means allowing all religions, we are getting there now. In fact I see this fundamentalist rise more like a last grand stand to try to stop the inevitable. But already they are changing as the realize they will lose their members if they can not change their tone to a more positive one. In a free market you can win with negativity and repression.
As I see it Christianity and Islam are very much religions of warrior people. The Romans were an extreme warrior people and so were the Germanic and also the Arabs. That is why it is so repressive. That is why it is so sadomasochistic in nature. That is why their God is repressive king. That is what it says about our western culture. We are still busy trying to reform to a non warrior culture.(But western nations are still good for 80% of military power in this world). That is what patriotism (pater = father, male idea of a society) is still so important. That is why society is based on competition (conflict) rather than cooperation. But we are changing. Change is inevitable.

Now Scar, as a God (per Psalm 82) I can instruct how to "discern scriptures".
If you agree with what it clearly says then it is to be taken literally.
If you disagree with what it says then it is to be taken figuratively.
You can also make any passage refer to, or be a prophecy about, Jesus, the antichrist, modern times, the end of the world etc.
You may also redifine any word you choose and you may pick from the Greek, Latin, Hebrew or English version; which ever supports your case better.
There you go my fellow Elohim. Go forth and spead the good news!
Just remeber this is the only life you get. Although we are Gods and sons of the Most High, we are mortal and will die like all living things.(Psalm 82 and Genesis 1).
Blessed Be!

Would you agree that the difference between your concept of reality and thiers is that while you believe the Sun exists you don't believe that Apollo is hauling it around in an invisible chariot, but thiests believe that a deity is required to create night and day ?

I am always remind that humans in general do not greive not having a tail.
Note that Christopher Walken once asked if he would rather have a tail or the ability to fly, after much thought, said, "I would rather have a tail, I can fly on airplane anytime I want."

I can't agree that Christianity was not intended to succeed Judaism. That's the whole reason the Hebrew Bible was included in the Christian Bible. Jesus was supposed to be the Jewish savior (never mind that Jesus didn't fulfill the Hebrew prophesies of who the messiah was supposed to be/what he was supposed to do).
I don't know why you attack Christianity yet give Judaism a pass. Judaism is alot more warlike than Christianity, at least ideologically. Christianity in practice has been more warlike simply because the Jews were dispersed into a diaspora; they had no more opportunity to ethnically cleanse their neighbors. So I'd say that all of the Abrahamic religions are potentially dangerous to a civil society and are morally outdated.
Agreed. the best thing that happened to Judaism was the destruction of the Temple and diaspora of 70AD onward.
In many respects, Reform Judaism has (unintentionally) continued what Jesus (allegedly) preached far better than (Pauline)Chrisitanity has.

Thank you for bringing up Midrash.
Dang you that I am too tired to post at length.

Midrash in Judaism is considered opinion. It does not hold the weight of authority. Unlike Christian Dogma and Apologetics, it can be rejected out of hand if one so chooses without personal condemnation.
Midrash at it's core is a contradictory assemblage of Rabbinical attempts to solve Scriptural contradictions and omissions. In so doing, it made the waters even muddier. Any honest Rabbi will admit that.

More about slavery in the OT from Judaic Midrash halakha, "VE-eileh ha-mishpatim" (AND these are the statutes). It was a deeper explanation kept by the Rabbi's concerning OT text. An exegesis of the Torah....
