It's irrational to make the absolute claim "there is no god"
Wow, that is sure a nice compilation of crazy apologetics and incomprehensible logical fallacies. Thank you for exposing more Christian lies. Well done.

Please illustrate one famous atheist who made an absolute claim about the existence of a supernatural deity. Even Pope Dawkins puts himself at a 6 on a sliding scale of disbelief of 1-7.

Two final points:

1. Atheists are only mistrusted because of Christian lies.

2. If you claim Biblegod and his boy toy Jesus are two of the only three gods, you are making an absolute claim about the non-existence of over a million other gods. Is acting foolish your goal? Mission accomplished.

Agreed. Polymath does bring some interesting ideas to the discussion. I also am more likely to read, though haven't done much of that here lately. Just do some hit-n-runs when I get a chance to come home a little while.

<quoted text>Warm thoughts to you and yours.
Having lost my mother and stepfather within 24 hrs to cancer earlier this month, I believe I can empathize completely. It is an emotional minefield. As Mother was a well-known freethinker (tho' an on-fire Christian in my youth), I can say that no one burdened us with having to smile and nod at such wretched foolishness.
Your proposition is the only rational course. Even as a Christian I could not abide the idea of intercessory prayer (altho' I would acquiesce if an ill person requested prayer, then and now. I don't believe in prayer, but do believe in the efficacy of positive mind-states). It is impossible to wish for God's intervention, and not deal with the implications when it refuses for it's own ineffable reasons. It is a capricious and cruelly whimsical god that would comport itself in such a manner. As a Xtian I resolved, privately, to release God from such archaic chicanery. Since then, of course, I resolved to release myself from such a creature entirely.
Peace to you.

Condolences and best regards to you and yours, Hip.

It took several years for me to let go, for me to realize exactly how "the truth shall set you free." Reminds me of that verse in GoThomas where Jesus allegedly says something to the effect that you will be disturbed, then astonished...and I was. Then I understood, and was free.

My mom has remained a Christian, so I'm surrounded by them. Some Catholic, some protestant. Most together are like a bag of trail mix, nutty and fruity, but with a prize here and there in the bunch. My son's girlfriend is Thai and Buddhist so mom wants to learn more about Buddhism, which I see as a great opening. But the cancer is progressing so quickly, so ravenously, she barely has the energy to stay awake for very long at this point.

This ended up a case where nature should've been left alone without any intercessions by any gods, i.e. people in white coats doing surgery at the first chance. Unfortunately, people become vulnerable in the midst of excruciating pain and some surgeons will take advantage of that. Of course, our laws here help protect those surgeons. I would advise anyone to get 3 opinions at the very least, and from all different surgeon groups, not different surgeons in the same group. There are lots of elderly people out there now days and the numbers are growing with the baby boomers getting older. Protect your loved ones and encourage them to seek further information before any kind of surgery. Once a surgeon is allowed to cut on you, you are basically stuck with that surgeon, esp. if he screws something up because no other will take on the responsibility of cleaning up the first one's mess...well, someone may but it's almost impossible to find one to do so.

Y'all take care of your loved ones and don't believe what one doctor says, esp in life and death situations. The whole idea of a medical "industry" turns people into commodities, things, rather than human beings. The things I've seen done or not done, in a Catholic hospital, have been shocking to say the least. And get a medical POA for spouses and others in cases of surgery because you never know what will happen. Protect yourselves and those you love.

Peace back atcha HipG...and to the rest of you as well.'Til next time....

And here I shall expose the christian lie. As Hitler before me exposed this, so you should read and understand. Most of you post from the new testament, this is not a good idea. You will understand after reading this. The jews have kept you blind and made you to worship false gods such as jesus and satan.

http://thechristianlie.blogspot.com/...

Fiction: Hitlers teeth were rotted from eating sweets.
Truth:Hitler was kept homeless during his wisdom tooth growth that caused massive impaction and the total of ww2 could have been avoided if he had only been able to get his wisdom teeth removed before they destroyed his teeth. Brother Adolf was homeless from 1909-1914, he was aged 19-24 years old, what age did your wisdom teeth get pulled? The communist left and the evangelical worked hard at keeping men like him on the streets through the usage of a false christian doctrine known as pre tribulation doctrine. The false doctrine makes usage of a lie that satan takes over before the tribulation and they keep people homeless to try to force hat viewpoint. Yes it is called have faith. Yes it is a communist plot. Yes socialism can destroy communism and return us to an imerialist ruler that can be held responsible if he rotts our teeth. The socialist army must rise once again to throw off the chains of the jew oppressor!

Do you truly believe that you evolved from nothing, after it become something, and then some other nothing (that also become something) affected it and turned it into something alive?

That's hard enough to believe, but on top of that, you also believe that a little something randomly decided to reproduce itself and (also randomly) became a super computer wrapped in an incredibly complex mass of cells, proteins, enzymes and the like, with billions and billions of DNA strands that randomly organize themselves to make it all work?

I'm sorry... did I say organize? I meant randomly holding in what an uninformed person would think is a pattern (but it's really not) and seemingly float together to generate growth.

I'm sorry... did I say generate? That would imply purpose, and anyone with a love for science would know that random action doesn't have purpose, it is just a reaction to something else. Yup randon actions randomly causing more random actions, which amazingly result iin what LOOKS like and amazingly designed system of life... but WE KNOW better. It just LOOKS that way!

(Redoran thinks as he's reading this post) Hmmm... maybe I can say that aliens planted us here... yeah, but then I'd have to explain where they came from... and I can't even explain what thought is and how that could have been a result of evolution... I know! I'll attack him for believing in fairy tales spirits in the sky again. Yeah, that'll get him!

Bejair often quoted Is.45 [7] I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things

Now you can try to apply christian apologetics to this but it's silly to claim it was taken out of context. Often, the Bible verses are free-standing from one another with no story context or immediate message context. A lot of the Bible books are jumbles of ideas and messages from Bible god with no real context. That's why churches emphasize faith over critical thinking when it comes to the Bible.

Why is it arrogant to believe what God says? It's not like I came up with the premise. We decided that we came about in some other way, but that in no way changes the reality of what God did and planned.

Why do people have a problem with God creating an angelic being that he gave free choice to... which he knew would choose evil? Creation is good, choosing evil is bad and the responsibility of the chooser.

God had a plan to deal with the sin that was unleashed on the world through man, and I trust Him. Maybe we need to seek understanding instead of tarnish what we don't know.

By the way, considering you are quoting Isaiah in an English translation, do you think that the translation of evil could be mistranslated? Do you know what Hebrew word was used and what the most common usage of that word is?

Quoting the 1st post:
""For THIS is GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have ALL men ..… ALL men to be saved..." (I Tim. 2:3-4).

Christians say God WILL NOT have all men to be saved. Why? It goes against the Doctrines and Teachings of men.

"The Lord…is NOT WILLING that ANY should perish [eternally]…" (I Peter. 3:9).

Christians say God IS WILLING that some should perish. Why? Again, they follow the doctrines of men.

"This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God Who is the Saviour of ALL MEN specially [specially does not mean ‘exclusively’] of those that believe" (I Tim. 4:10).

NOTICE how god stated "worth of all acceptation". Notice he stated that in the first one too....nothing short of this is acceptable. Notice each time god stated All...not 5 percent. Notice in 1 Tim. 4:10 he says ALL MEN SPECIALLY of those that believe....he makes it clear that not only those that believe...ALL MEn.

"I, if I be lifted up from the earth, WILL draw ALL [Gk. "the" all] men unto me" (John 12:32).

Yes...again, he made it clear that he will draw ALL MEN. Christians do not accept this either. They tell us...in this thread that this is not true. They tell us that we are not all saved.

"For even as, in Adam, all are dying, thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified" (I Cor. 15:22)."

Unquote:
All of these are nice thoughts, but they are not automatic. They are null and void if we dont make Jesus the open door, and go through him, and put him first in our lives. We have to
REPENT and be sorry for the sins we have committed.

Poster, you are making it look like a person dont have to do anyting to go to Heaven.

We cannot be saved if we dont let him live in our hearts, and do what he commands us to do.
Sins are not automatically forgiven. You have to be born again! Unless you are born again, you cannot inherit the Kingdom of God.
