I participated in a trivia contest this week. In one question, we had to name all eight of Santa's reindeer. Rudolph is not one of them. We got seven. Try it - it's tough. If you want a clue, the first letters of their names follow the spoiler space below

Did you read it to him out loud? If not, he misunderstood it.

Speaking of just turning and walking away, perhaps part of his pathology is related to abandonment issues. He was bemoaning the number of Christians that have abandoned him from this thread.

I have pledged to him that I won't abandon him like his Christian buddies have done. I am committed to him and what he would call Christian love: continually reminding him what a failure he is, and how to save himself from himself.

that his "soul" is dark and lost.

I don't see that happening.

I don't see how this matter could ever conclude unless one of us leaves the thread. He is unrelenting in his slander, and if it hasn't become something that I am willing to accept from him yet, I doubt it ever will. He takes too much pleasure in calling those that criticize his religion "liar" and "bigot," and in my case, I don't seem to tire of rubbing his nose in the carpet for it.

Besides, he usually have several flame wars going at once - Happy Lesbo, Le_Le, Catcher, and Grace come to mind - and is obviously willing to start a new one at any time. Nobody has to wait for him to finish any of them.

I see what you mean by LOL. That's hilarious.
Since you're laughing, I guess that your answer is "yes," you consider my posting a violation of your rights.

Don't forget reading comprehension skills.
<quoted text>
LOL is right!
Sorry that you disapprove of me.
I just said to Mark, I have a very light-hearted approach to many things, but it seems to me that 'light' is missed in life by many... Christians included.
… but I don't even think the terms,'violation of rights'… and never have ? Where do these question/statements come from if I don't 'think or feel them ? If seeing you raised it, I felt so, I would say so, not laugh... You have a strange way of coming to conclusion ? lol again. What am I to think of such thoughts? Perhaps you might think the same of mine! As LW would say lol lol !

My reading is coming along nicely thanxs to the many words used in this topix thread! So ja, lol... and don't guess nor assume anything... my likes or dislikes are as varied as the sands. One thing you can be sure of is, if I disapprove I will say so if a post is directed to me, but to date, I have tried to answer any with respect.

We have a saying if translated -'don't be sorry be careful'- light hearts make light work of dark or heavy subjects in transforming that state to care.

I think you responded to the wrong post. Mine was about Christianity. You asked me why American secularists opposed it more than other religions.
I don't see North American headlines, nor think or use the term American secularists. I did ask the concerns of Atheist re the Christian Faith. I cannot share the other religions which I don't know enough of 'why' but understood your point.

No, it was not the wrong post. You stated your links and the children's suffering at the hands of those who adhere to old biblical teachings. Your western world - which seems to be 'America'-,as against mine, weighed in your concerns of a few incidents found in a population of 350 + million,

I acknowledged this by amplifying with greater concern...'killings' of innocents in our living time - and the mistakes made where suffering still continues on the human race.

But thank you. From what I can gather each will find fault with the other. This way, none will succeed. Only when we can put aside the petty divisions and recognize the whole problem is humanity... we will.

Hope I can fit your next post in!

I've seen how Christians care about the planet:
“We don't have to protect the environment, the Second Coming is at hand”- James Watt, Secretary of the Interior under Reagan
"Beisner ... is trying to stop other evangelical Christians from supporting efforts to curtail climate change with warnings that scientists are liars and environmental protection will destroy Christianity"
http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/beisner...
<quoted text>
BTW, not "Like all things." Secular humanism definitely IS less guilty that Christianity. We may be the only ones taking the scientists seriously.
That is appalling for Christians to think like that. They share the planet equally.
Looks like this Calvin Beisner could do some more home-work considering he missed the point in his degree of Earth sciences, Cosmology & astrophysics ignoring that everything is linked, and chose a cultism stand instead. Without going into details, it was more or less predicted which means he either didn't understand – or ignored – his own faith based teachings.

Seems all belief systems with extremists 'right or left wing'…become the petty arguments for or against. Propaganda has the feathers ruffled of those who talk too much and act too little! Facts simply are... and those of action never stop, while vultures climb aboard cashing in regardless.

I am not judging any less or more guilty within the human race. Science has made their mistakes also, and don't need to be Secular or Christian to know this. Guilt has a way like water which finds its own gravity. Eventually heavy-weights with even soggy bank balances for cover-ups will have to surface and face up. Like the duality of all things, we have much to thank science for as well.

It is the disrespect for the earth, and the space it's in which truly is at stake for humanity. Abuse - child or planet – will eventually revolt – and that has been overlooked in this Nuclear Age.

Then what use is Christianity?.
I feel many lump all Christians into one pile, but we are individual in our personal life. History never weaves a pretty picture when only the faults are remembered, and no-one needs reminding of that. Use and abuse of a system regardless of name.

Christianity has served many on a personal level saving many lives from their own destructive ways, but a problem arises if this victory from themselves becomes an ego trip boosted by mass flattery, loosing sight of their roots. Humble roots...
… to share the good news with the meek
… to mend the broken-hearted
… to comfort all who mourn
… to declare liberty to the captives
… to open the prisons of them that are bound in their darkest thoughts.
… and more
Those forgot the humility and the dignity it requires, for without these things are only Christian by group name and serving themselves with no usefulness to others at all.

Shouldn't you be better? You seem to be satisfied not to be the worst .
Not sure what you mean by 'satisfied not to be the worst'?
I am... the worst kind! No church, dogma, and all the trappings or laced edges... My personal content is knowing to date I cannot offer more than I am, having fully sacrificed my own life for the cause of others. That is my warrior instincts for justice which goes with peace, and will settle for nothing less than truth. It is not a measurement of Christian but of facts.

Good morning, America, and the rest of the world. With the looming Obama healthcare....INSURANCE.. just around the corner, I'd like to ask all people of the world about ANOTHER type of 'insurance'. An 'Insurance Plan' that you can't afford to go so much as another minute without, but one that's REAL AFFORDABLE because your 'Plan' was PAID FOR OVER TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO. But the 'Carrier' of this 'Plan' gave this STERN WARNING:'TODAY is the Day of salvation! For you are not promised tomorrow!' And here's a prime example of WHY He said that:

Listen Chris...I never really researched it to any degree, so I may be wrong. Don't take my words for gospel on this. If you find anything definitive about it I would appreciate it if you would share it also. Fair? What I HAVE stated, I know to be true though.
All I know is what I've seen. Imo much of what you can find online is just too convoluted. I can tell you I've been witness to planes that seem to have no purpose other than to lay down whatever substance they are spraying. When I first noted this in 1999 it was like a farmer plowing a field and also at rather low altitude. Now it seems to be at much higher altitudes. And the other thing I've noted is that whatever this substance is its not a normal plane contrail. In fact in 2004 I flew often and could see this substance, grow into a cloud and look like an oil slick in the sky when the sun hits it. I also take into account my faith that what man can see is not always true. Whatever whoever seems to have power I do not doubt that the Lord is in complete control.

Mankind is marvelous. We are as close to a race of gods as we know of in this universe. If you have nothing good to say about us, it would be better for you to say nothing. Promoting the pessimism of your vile religion is counterproductive.
Your attitude, like the religion that has mismanaged you with great skill, is a danger to us all, and this deep pessimism for mankind and the resulting despair over mans ability to help himself is its legacy and a burden to us all.
Unlike you I hope everyone has a say. You don't like what she says just scroll. Mankind really hasn't changed as much as some would like to wish. Yep, we have better tech but what are we doing with it? She is right on, man is evil born into evil and only one can or will change that. I for one long ago got sick of your vile words and hate you post here day in day out but thank God you have a say. The day anyone doesn't have a say is indeed a very dark day.

They thought it was out of sight out of mind. From Outer Space to high altitude nuclear explosions – always testing for wars!- right through to deep earth or ocean, the damage done from the ozone layer in their tests, to the planet as a whole. It is slowly but surly rebelling, while the space junk is ignored... too late to re-call.

Ja... there is a bell that tolls for life on Planet Earth, and it is humans who have f#itup! So there is more truth than fiction in the Christian hope of a better world, and peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind! Plus a savior one could believe in outside of 'the saviors of the world'. George Bush Senior declared that they - the USA - were, and I heard him say it!

If ever there was a smoke screen around the Christian religion and warmongering it is the new world order with the deception of it being of peacemakers.

Means little to me. I like direct experience and pure thought based on experience, I don't like thinking convoluted with sentiments.
The bible is not based in and relating to real experience, but a product of scholars and is surrounded with thoughts that mean nothing elevated but strike an accord in people sentiments, his lower being. Haleluja, praise the lord, the highest, our saviour, etc. The highness in this god is only in the praise. And then preferably done in old English to make it sound more authentic.
This guy talks in the same way playing sentiments to strike an accord in his mysticism, but it only pretends to have a higher meaning, by mixing the sentiments with dissociated thoughts. In the sixties a lot of this trash was produced to fill the needs of people who not grew up in a tradition of inner knowledge and mistook mysticism for deeper understanding.
I like Myths, not Mysticism. I do not like fabels sold as Myths. Precisely because Myths are written by wise men with a deeper understanding and can not be grasped easily, they are eagerly faked by all kind of religious charlatans who copy elements from them to create nonsensical stories with a ring of truth.
It is a weakness in the uman mind that it starts projecting meaning in these stories that is not there if you suggest meaning. The charlatan only has to praise them for it and they feel like discovering the truth. It is like looking at the clouds and trying to see all kind of things, faces and beings in them.
The bible is a grab bag of such fables, that is why both the loving and the hating, the sad and the jolly, the theoretical and the practical, the good and the evil, find the bible consistent with their ideas and feelings. As a Duch saying goes: "In de bijbel vindt elke ketter zijn letter" ("In the bible every hereric finds his proof").
It was created by smart religious Jewish sales men, like Paul and other presbyters. With the bible you can please everyone. Find out what a person likes and you can present him with lines that please and suite him. Once you made them into believers, you can find other lines to make them do as you please. Make them go to war if you want war, and make them accept peace if you want peace.
~~ smile~~ Mark . You posted me a funny YouTube – to which I saw the funny side – but then again, I can smile... I have a funny and very light hearted sense of humor which many serious folk in here miss the mark with.

Take Care. We will never hit the target of agree while you are so wrapped up in the gravity of your mission. I could be respectful to disagree with much when it comes to the way you place me in with the crowd of the Christian you love to hate. It matters not. I am just another cog in the wheel of progress and you are still using steam power by the heat of your breath.

I will carry on in the light of my heart, and just wish you the same peace I know. Just don't send me funny YouTubes if I can't see the fun in them.

"Freedom Fighter"

The mouths of envious
Always find another door
While at the gates of paradise they beat us down some more
But our mission's set in stone
'Cause the writing's on the wall
I'll scream it from the mountain tops pride comes before the fall

So many thoughts to share
All this energy to give
Unlike those who hide the truth I tell it like it is
If the truth will set you free
I feel sorry for your soul
Can't you hear the ringing 'cause for you the bell tolls

[Chorus]
I'm just a freedom fighter
No remorse
Raging on in holy war
Soon there'll come a day
When you're face to face with
Face to face with me

Can't you hear us coming?
People marching all around
Can't you see we're coming?
Close your eyes it's over now
Can't you hear us coming?
The fight has only just begun
Can't you see we're coming?

Sheep have an amazing ability to keep on treacherous little paths and I used to look at them in awe, as you could see the same stubborn path that was woven and followed, generation after generation.
My life has taken me from an innocent little girl coloring in pictures of Jesus, children, beautiful woman and happy men, with animals well loved and cared for. Those days, I colored in the thorns and the little trickles of blood with an honorable feeling of love; these days I comprehend that my young mind (and things were pretty innocent back in those days) was way off of the track because they tortured him, mercilessly.
But I have seen many go to Church taking their lies in with them and bringing them back out with them; and carrying on trying to fool themselves with their lies, and acting all perfect and happy like GOD doesn't know?
To be a Christian should be a bringer of JESUS CHRIST and to spread HIS message of love, and that is what I am striving to pack in my bag. Along with humble......
