Yeah I do believe it you're right. But I'm not being blackmailed because I'm not doing something against my will. I want to worship Jesus Christ. I love to read the bible, go to church, pray meditate fast do mission trips all of that. To be blackmailed you have to be doing something AGAINST your will. I'm a Christian, by free will and choice. So I'm not being blackmailed. <quoted text>Isn't freedom great. Choose whatever religion you like. How can you be threatened by what you think is a myth?
You keep saying Christianity threatens. You can't feel threatened by what you believe is a myth. Maybe some Christians are Christians because they believe God exist Yeshua is His Son and if they don't worship Yeshua, they going to hell.
Some would say that is a healthy fear. But if you think it all a myth, then you should not feel threatened or be afraid or feel blackmailed. So then be you--and leave everyone else alone to be them.
I don't feel threatened; not even in the slightest.

Like other myths, Christianity has no hold over me.

However, unlike other myths, the authors of Christianity felt the need to threaten people who didn't believe.

Clearly they knew that faith alone would not be enough so they had to back it all up with threats.

All evidence indicates that no strictly material object has moral sensitivity.
All evidence indicates that objects characterized by design have been produced by an intelligent designer.
There's evidence for God.
Now how about your teapot orbiting the sun? I assume you have NO evidence for that, so it's moot.

I personally believe people are not quite accurate when they say we are a secular country
Somewhere along the line the intention of what we call "separation of church and state" got very clouded
It was only meant to do two things. To ensure the government could not force a majority religion on its people so that all people would have the right to worship any faith they wanted or no faith at all. And that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion
But this country was founded by mostly religious people and has always been essentially known as a Christian nation
Yes I understand some things like "In God We Trust" on our money was more of a knee-jerk reaction to McCarthyism but look at some of the other evidence
Pledge of Allegiance: "..one nation under GOD..."
John Adams
“We recognize no sovereign but God, and no king but Jesus!”
http://www.faithofourfathers.net/johnadams.ht...
Thomas Jefferson
"I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus. I have little doubt that our whole country will soon be rallied to the unity of our creator."
http://www.faithofourfathers.net/jefferson.ht...
James Madison
"It is the duty of every man to render to the Creator such homage. Before any man can be considered as a member of Civil Society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the Universe.
http://www.faithofourfathers.net/madison.html
There is a lot more at:
http://www.faithofourfathers.net
But you get the point.
I would argue we are not a secular country
Secular definition:
Denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis: "secular buildings".
but rather we are a country founded on freedom of religion that has always been as a majority a Christian nation
(T) Peace
I agree with you.

The US is far less secular than say, we in the UK are.

Americans can lay claim to being secular in their constitution, however out on the street and in society at large - Christianity has worked its way into the nooks and crannies of everyday life.

Here in the UK, we may have a state religion but it's dying on its feet and we only keep it for ceremonial pomp and other silliness.

The most recent scientific research shows the soul/psyche/self exist. And it exist outside of the body. There is no scientific evidence that the awareness eventually dies.

I don't believe that awareness dies. That is the soul and it lives forever.
You have links to the scientific research that shows the soul not only exists but does so outside of the human body?

If you want to believe that the soul eventually dies, then you free to to believe that. But your original question leading up to this discussion was what is the soul? Science have defined it for you, and now you know scientifically speaking the soul/self/psyche exists.
Something that doesn't exist can't die.

Science defines the soul? I'd love to see that link and how the scientific method was applied to reach this defining moment.
