.. even if Christians do not dwell on Armageddon, it seems many on this thread, including you, believe we're in the last days. If so, why bring children into the world ??..
.. reading such thoughts is rather depressing. If everything is going to end soon, is there a need to make the world a better place ??..
.. it is my contention that SOME Christians are in a state of hopelessness and depression because their life sucks. I'm not seeing a great deal of joy from Christians on this thread ..
.. SOME people post daily scripture or prayers. That doesn't bother me but I've quit reading them because many are gloomy or speak to abominable acts ..
.. what's wrong with eternity starting today ??..
Might be the only time I will agree with so many of your points.

Your argument about Children is a good one. I have had that conversation with others myself.

And there are many Christians that are in hopelessness and depression. But that is their fault. if they spend the time in the Spirit and the word as they should, they should not be in that state.

The only disagreement I would have is that I not think anyone can tell from this billboard who is a joyous Christian. The billboard is about argument and debates about philosophies and controversial issues.

I don't think it is impossible, but extremely difficult for anyone discussing heavy societal issues like what's on here to stay joyful while debating them. After they get off the billboard and away from the debates, sure. People probably did not think Jesus had Joy while he was condemning and scolding his enemies the pharisees and the scribes.

Why tell me? Did you want me to modify my posting habits to accommodate you? That's pretty unlikely.
May I recommend that if running you eyes past something that you don't care about is the traumatic experience that you imply it is with your complaint, that you scroll past my posts? They frequently contain my opinions about your bible.
I am simply wondering why the blatant hypocrisy? You claim Christians try to force their beliefs on others yet you are the one who continues to post to me direct to tell me what you believe or why you don't believe things when I have made it clear I am not interested

How can you possibly complain that people force their beliefs on you when not only you are the one seeking out the people you claim are doing the forcing and you are someone who consistently tries to force his beliefs on others

Of course i have the option to scroll. I never implied i couldn't or that it bothers me. I just decided to point out the hypocrisy instead. I thought it was worth pointing out as I find much of your cause to be a sham and nothing more than a cover for your bigotry. You are not oppressed. In fact you choose willingly to engage and force your beliefs on others so you can have an outlet for your anger. The question isn't why don't I scroll. It is why do you keep telling me your beliefs?

We see you as egomaniacs trying to force their ideas on others
Yet here you are, seeking out a Christian themed room with the sole intent of pushing your opinion of the beliefs of others onto people who were minding their own business

In what possible way can you claim you don't do the very thing you say you are against?

Homosexuality is neither normal or natural and your statistical argument is a farce since there are no scientific evidence homosexuality is biological.
You don't even try to hide your homophobia, do you?

oy!, I think you have. Many debates on here aimed at you in the past made it clear the implication was that you were Gay, yet you never denied or refuted that until today.

I have never pretended to be homosexual.
And because I'm white, I can't support equal rights for blacks?
Because I'm a guy, I can't support equal rights for women?
But do you think the women and the black civil rights group would like to know if the person arguing for their rights is a woman or a black? don't you think that is information the civil rights group would like to know?

There is no current rationale for much that is in the Bible.
A way of looking at the Bible is thus:
Take the Magna Carta, A 1850 U.S. History book, a stack of your favorite poems, sayings and songs and staple them all together.
THAT is the equivalent of the Old Testament.
As for the New Testament; take the Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights, a dozen of FDR's letters and a copy of the Turner Diaries together.
Now, convince a few million people that it is the basis for a perfect government and has no contradictions or errors and that all other documents and opinions are the lies of traitors.
ROFLMAO
THAT's religion.
I'm not sure what to say about this. Some things a agree with, others I don't, but encouraging Rider doesn't help either. I'm not 100% sure your information is useful to him.

Wasn't it you telling us that history is fuzzy:
The Thinking Man wrote: "All of history is hearsay if you're using chronological proximity as your basis for not accepting the available evidence. Historicity isn't determined "beyond reasonable doubt" as is a criminal court case. Historicity is determined by several factors."
Are you going to deny the eyewitness testimony of over eighty people to this pivotal event in human history?
Suddenly, history has become an exact science for you, now that you want to exclude embarrassing scripture. Suddenly, you feel confident that scripture can be excluded, and that you can assert with authority that the Peter was not the author - precisely the kind of thing that you were criticizing skeptics for when directed at the scriptures that you prefer.
We call this special pleading, a favorite of faith based thinkers.
It's most famous application is in the way believers demand exacting proof of SCIENTIFIC theories, and reject incomplete hypotheses such as abiogenesis because they are not road maps from free amino acids to a living cell, but accept their own dogma based on nothing but an self-contradictory and error filled ancient book with such rigorous descriptions as "then god created the animals."
It's also apparent when believers demand PHILOSOPHICAL rigor for the origins of the universe - nothing comes from nothing, and everything must have a cause they urgently insist - until we get to their god, for whom the rules change. He just is.
Then again when the MATHEMATICAL arguments are brought out to tell us how unlikely a cell self-organizing is - isn't it Hoyle who sets the figure at less than 1 in 10^50000?- but then gives the infinitely more complex god a pass ans just assumes that it could exist uncreated.
This is what you are doing with your treatment of history.
Special pleading is the child of faith and its confirmation bias. You are certain of something in advance, and receive the ideas that support that choice while rejecting the others with arguments that you don't apply to the favored ideas.
As ever, you put it very well indeed.

Thinking Man isn't giving much thought at all to sources outwith his bible.

Lol - quite likely.

The Acts of Paul and Thecla is another crazy book that used to be popular with the faithful but isn't included in the Bible.

http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/0816.htm

There's a part where Thecla leaps into a moat full of man-eating seals. However, Gd sends down a lightning bolt and fries the seals.

Some people have family members who are homosexual that happen to also be very good people. For those, it's a matter of arguing for equal rights for a family member.

This shows the lengths you have to go to rationalize your Homosexuality that you have to compare yourself with beasts and animals.
One thing animals do not have is Morality:
http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/reclaimin...
To compare yourself with an animal in all aspects, is saying your homosexuality is Immoral. And to say Homosexuality is immoral, that may be the first time I agree with you.
You really don't like the 21st century, do you?
