Catcher is not just disagreeing with me, he's being arrogant, insulting and belittling.
Is this what you call secular humanism at it's finest?
I'm sorry, RH, but I just can't help it.

The whole Satan thing makes me laugh. It's so silly.

Again, I'm sorry.

Boo!

Oh, no. I'm not superstitious, because it brings bad luck.

I don't believe in astrology, either: I'm a Scorpio; we Scorpios skeptical by nature.

Yeah, I hear Jesus used to go around saying that sort of stuff.

Quite the intellectual argument there.

Childish, actually.

Maybe the devil made you do it.

"Fear God" is not like fearing death, or afraid of the dark or anything like that.
It's more like a reverant awe and obedience.
I doubt that any Christian is afraid of God.
And according to Genesis 22, I don't see how you think Abraham was ever frightened.
Can yu explain that?
Yeah. You projecting 21st century conceptions of your understanding of the Christian deity onto peoples of the past.
Oh, stop. Now you're adding 'terrorized' in the mix.
You can't just add to it at will and still remain credible.
"Abraham! I am your god. Go and sacrifice your only son to me. Then burn his body. Please notice that I'm all powerful and you are a tiny worm by comparison."

You don't think that would terrorize Abraham? Is Abraham immune to fear?
Agreed. Nicely said.
Thanks

:)

Some amusing...
TEXAS WEIGHS BAN ON WOMEN
AUSTIN (The Borowitz Report)—Republican lawmakers in the Texas State Senate are proposing a precedent-setting new bill that would make it illegal for women to live in the state.
Senator Harland Dorrinson, one of the many pro-life lawmakers backing the woman ban, crafted his bill after witnessing Senator Wendy Davis filibuster an anti-abortion bill last month.
“That was our moment to say,‘Enough is enough,’” he said.“This comes down to a choice between life and women, and we choose life.”
Senator Dorrinson said his bill would call for a twenty-foot woman-proof fence to be constructed along the borders of the state.
“Women are great at talking, but not at climbing,” he observed.
But another G.O.P. state senator, Cal Jamson, believes that the total ban on women goes “too far” and is proposing a less draconian bill that would allow some women to remain in the state as guest workers.
“Texas needs women to cook, clean, and cheerlead,” he said.“If they show that they can do those things and stay out of politics, there could be a pathway to citizenship.”
hahaha!

It was my great-great-great-great, great grandfather that stopped Abraham from killing his son by impersonating Dungonkohn from the planet Zippataksyki. He is our bitter enemy and extremely evil. Earthlings call his species the devil.

Why does that suddenly matter? You're a faith-based thinker. Suddenly, you're a rational skeptic for just this issue.

You went 0 for 12 on the bible quiz - not one right answer. To your credit, they weren't all wrong, though. Some you simply fled from.

The Christian church, assuming she's a Christian.

This usage if the word still eludes you, doesn't it? You might want to consider bellying up on this, too.

I agree, and have said so often.

But you should have seen it before the recent wave of skeptics got here six or so months ago. It was like a church tea in a cemetery at night in here - except not as dynamic, unless Lil Whisker's had gotten into the "remedy" and went a little freaky.
