Can you identify which is made-up and which is not? Homosapien, homo erectus, homophobia and homosexual? Using the etiology of the word homo we discover that there is no scientific basis for either the words homophobia or homosexual. I do not accept or condone rapist, but I have never been called a rapophobic. Being a female, I am certainly likely to be in a larger group of people who fear rapists than there are people who fear gays.
Are a lot of you Christianphobes? Your actions would demonstrate that you fear Christians.

I really just can't believe Triecta is representative of normal Christianity. I honestly don't think anyone who would post here for months, myself included, is normal.
I presume that you are kidding. There is nothing abnormal about posting on Topix.

Trifecta is one of the commonest types of Christian posting. There is nothing atypical about him, not his anger, nor his priorities, nor his threats of hell, nor his willingness to spin realities about fear and inferiority.

Isn't it a confirmation bias of sorts to say that Christians couldn't be as bad as what we see here month after month, year after year, therefore these are not typical Christians? Why not?

What seems to be atypical are the other kind. I can count on one hand the number of Christians here that are exceptions.

It's not wrong to describe it as an infection if you can demonstrate that Trifecta would otherwise be a healthy, moral person without the religion. I suppose that's possible - his discussions about his work are when he comes across as most normal.
Let me offer you the collection of Christians posting on this thread in contrast with the collection of humanists. Which group demonstrates more of the qualities that you would call moral? Which group is more socially conscious? Which group is better educated and more thoughtful? Is this a coincidence?

Yes, correlation is not causation. Perhaps such people are drawn to Christianity. Probably. The ones drawn to it from death row and skid row are.

But most of these people were born into Christianity, not drawn to it. In that case, you could argue that more intelligent people and people of higher character are more likely to leave it.

Could religious upbringing be a causative factor? I have been arguing that it is. Christian morals allow people to be as unethical as they choose and obtain forgiveness on demand. It teaches that morality is anything that the god says it is. It teaches them to marginalize and scapegoat various groups. It teaches love in terms of crucifixion and being spared eternal torture. It teaches separation from family, from the family of man, and from this earth.

How could that not be a causative factor?

True but lies and threats of hell and damnation are always ugly.
You're so right though, to think I could've lost the love of my life, the most beautiful soul I've ever known to jealousy and trickery. Good thing I know how to think and feel aye.
Much luve to you lil
Watch my wording with this statement, which is a opinion, I never found proof that the spirit has lied about hell or damnation.

Now to the rest of your post another opinion the emotion of jealousy can be vile but only if you allow it, control it not it control you. As for trickery tis only a vice used when all else fails sometimes at the risk of self respect.As humans no one is ever promised a rose garden but rose gardens can be built in life thru love,patients,understanding,co mpassion,peace,hope,yep gal even in sex.

Side note. On another thread, Clearwater said he was done posting here because of the nasty atheists. Yet he lurks.
Why would somebody need to hide from "nastiness"? The nasty Christians are among the things that make this thread so useful and instructive.

"Well, Iíve been hearing quite a lot of bitching and whining in the press lately about aggressive, intolerant, atheism; as if thatís, somehow, a bad thing. It seems religion can dish it out okay but it canít take it: like a street thug who calls the police when his victims fight back." - Pat Condell.

<quoted text>Pray tell, when should homosexuals be brought up? When it is a homosexual bringing it up or when homosexuals are soliciting votes? This this thread is called "Should Jesus Love Me", so should we accept that you believe that Jesus exists or are you strangely bringing him up?
Yeah, that's my point. Dr. Shrink brings up homosexuals at every turn and I can't figure out why.

Are you suggesting he's a homosexual and trying to solicit votes?

Oh, for me, I don't believe that Jesus exists. If he existed, as a man, he's long dead. So Jesus can't love you.

That's too simple. Quite clearly they have religious beliefs and try to follow them - they just don't share your religious beliefs. Personally, I find their beliefs more distasteful than yours, but equally fictitious.

I am not Christophobic but I do think Christianity (and some other religions) causes more harm than good.
Phobias are "irrational fears", IANS' and others' fears regarding Christianity are not irrational.
The ones who have irrational fears are the Christians and other religions who fear education, science and other religions.
let's look at what you're saying:

1st - "I do think Christianity causes more harm than good"

2nd - "Phobias are "irrational fears"..."

i suppose that you justify your christophobia as a 'rationale' fear?!

It's hard to tell what you are referring to. Feel free to study the unbelievers, and learn from us if you can. You should.

As for Christians misunderstanding me, that is not an issue for me.

And regarding forgiving, it's not relevant here. I have offered my hand in peace to two Christians on this thread in the last several days, and both spat at it. Epi recently chastised me for asking for an apology. How would forgiving such behavior help anything? It is more appropriate to confront it.

I believe many things, and trust many as well. But I don't believe in anything, not in the sense you probably mean.

Also, I use the word spirit here to mean attitude, like team spirit, elevated spirits, or the spirit of the times (zeitgeist)- not to refer to ghosts or unseen worlds.
