Glad your transition went so well. My wife and I are very happy with our Mexican life, and hope you and yours are and will continue to be as well.
It's still difficult adjusting to a open tolerant society.

they have a different interpretation of scripture than I do
I've found that each reader of the bible has his or her own understanding of what it means according to which of a set of conflicting scriptures he chooses to take as literally true, and which she calls metaphor or inactivated. For example, Lamchop recently referred to a Commandment against killing, but somebody else told us that the Old Testament only applies to Jews, and another said just one tribe of Jews.

As for your comment regarding a dictator --- maybe if you look again with fresh eyes - see it instead as a written guideline ...
I wasn't actually calling your god a dictator there, but that word applies, doesn't it? After all, they're called Commandments, and heaven isn't really a democracy.

What higher purpose than self are you referring to? Trifecta told us that the purpose of life is to save your own soul.
agapaoHope wrote:
Gods promises and 'rules' are meant to protect us from each other and our own selves too.
Those rules seem to be mostly about protecting us from the wrathful judgment of the god, such as rules against blasphemy and fornication.

You probably know that before secularists criminalized it, people were actually burning other people alive based on their understanding of those rules.

Secular humanist values seem to do a better job of protecting us from one another. Are you aware of the positive correlation between religiosity and crime in America? How do you account for that?

It's pretty difficult to make a rational argument for being a Christian unless there really is a hell.

All of them. The word translated into English as "spirit" (and into Greek) is the Hebrew word for "breath".
It is clear in the root (from the Latin spiritus) of the English word for breathing, "respiration", that "spirit" is breath in Latin as well.
they know nothing about the bible

most only know a little apologetic

and that they are the favorite of the god

If life itself that God breathed into every living creature is the Holy Spirit, then how are unbelievers alive? The Holy Spirit is only given to believers.
Acts 2:38
38 Peter replied,“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
you do not comprehend that which you read

is it "the holy spirit as a gift"

or

I find nothing of value in golfing, many do. I do not hate them or demean for that. In your atheist opinion is there much of a difference between golf and the belief in God ?
Some tell me I am missing the point of golf, I don't think there is a point to it.
Do you think there is a point to religious beliefs ?
Fair enough didn't know that lamchop

I wouldn't call myself an atheist- I'm irreligious.

Golf?

I know people really enjoy golf. ;)

However, I view most golf courses as a waste of prime real estate.,)

You're no better than they are.
How dare you attempt to implicate people like me in that kind of religious brutality. That's theist against theist. I'm a secular humanist.
It didn't take you long to slip into victim mode, did it?
Actually Shaima Alawadi was murdered by her family, who made it look like a hate crime. Her husband has been charged.

Whatever they say about the American way, it's better than some cultures.

Here is some disturbing news. Pentacostal Christians are instructing their HIV-infected members to give up their antivirals in favor of prayer.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23729684
Clearly these people need more education in biological science.
A person's immune system is very effective at finding and killing the virus - prior to full blown AIDS, an infected person's body kills 10 to the 9 viruses every day. Unfortunately the virus is faster. It reproduces at 10 to the 10 in human bodies, daily.
So HIV is under intense selection pressure when inside a person. It literally evolves to best survive individual immune systems. Antivirals stop HIV from reproducing as effectively, but they're not perfect - some viruses can (imperfectly) reproduce in their presence. So the antivirals produce an additional selection pressure within a human body - and they rely upon the immune system "mopping up" the few HIV that can reproduce in their presence.
When the selection pressure of the antivirals is removed, the viruses that are best poised to reproduce are the ones the antivirals couldn't kill. So you suddenly have what's called the "founder effect" taking place. HIV that is predisposed to resist antivirals make up the majority of the HIV present in a person's body when they are taking antivirals.
Antiviral suddenly gone, these resistant viruses come to dominate in the HIV population.
Let's say our young Christian patient discusses the situation with his doctor - who is horrified! The doctor tells the patient "get back on your medicine." But it's too late - that patient now has resistant HIV in their body; their medicine will be ineffective.
So the above Pentacostal Christians are going to kill their HIV members with faith based advice. Reliance on prayer will be utterly ineffective against HIV/AIDS. Moreover, they are helping HIV evolve to beat our medicines.
To Creationists: this is the danger of your willful ignorance. Evolution is a reality. Not understanding it has the potential to create not only individual suffering, but immense danger to all of us. Drug resistant HIV evolved. It won't go away.
Shocking stuff! At least hara-kiri would be relatively quick.

Back when I went to church, they told us HIV was divine retribution.

You didn't even answer the question, so obviously, you don't know if your interpretation of the bible is correct.
