An example of that would be Mother Teresa, IMO, who spent much of her life working with the poor in India, even though she also spent much of that time questioning her own faith, which was disclosed after she died, by those who she had confided in during her life. I suspect she enjoyed the fame she had worldwide, but felt somewhat stuck in a lifestyle that did not give her the joy she had wanted, because she did not have the courage to disappoint all the people who believed in her, or to lose her reputation in her church and the world.

Though she did a lot of good for people she also did a lot of harm too, because she spread the RC belief of not using birth control, which is something that the people she worked with badly needed, as high birth rates were a terrible problem there.
Mother Teresa's greatest crimes were the fraud and sadism that her church convinced her to facilitate. Take a look at the following if you will, and then please tell me what you think about Mother Teresa and her church:

I think that good people that do things with no thought of getting anything in return, are rewarded by the feeling of satisfaction that they are unselfishly and unanimously helping others. That ..........lead because of my fear of their not approving what I wanted. A word for that is 'wimp' That would describe much of my 1st marriage which lasted 31 years before separation. I kind of associate all that as a result of the bullying I got when young, because I coped by cooperating, and that became a learned habit.
Thank you very much for that!! I agree with that, but when i read sikh faith or history sometimes i feel that they gave up their lives coz they felt as if it was their duty to help people.

I never knew about the RC thing being linked to her.

Nah, I've never been a wimp, I don't normally pick on people or hit them, but to protect myself or people I care about, I sometimes open the cage to let the tiger out, lol.:-)

OMG, I respected her too, why would she even say this?

"I think it is very beautiful for the poor to accept their lot, to share it with the passion of Christ. I think the world is being much helped by the suffering of the poor people." – Mother Teresa

<quoted text> Evolution is not scientific, it is a THEORY. And you SURE ARE right there about atheism - it's NOT an academic subject, and therefore ABSOLUTELY CANNOT be in any school curriculum!! With religion, there IS a deity, a book (e.g. the Holy Bible in Christianity), so therefore there is something to teach. Atheism is the ABSENCE of a god and therefore we cannot learn ANYTHING from it. As for evolution, if we as humans are evolving physically and mentally, then WHY are we not EVOLVING MORALLY and ETHICALLY?? Because MORALLY, ETHICALLY, and in the way of our VALUES, we humans are DETERIORATING RAPIDLY. According to EVOLUTION (EVILUTION??), we should have EVOLVED MORALLY throughout those "millions of years" to the point where NOW, WE as HUMANS should be DAMN WELL BE NEAR SAINTLY!! WHY is our morality going the OPPOSITE WAY?? CREATION says the OPPOSITE has been happening all this time i.e. we're getting morally worse. Read your newspaper headlines, or watch the news on TV, on the Net (or hear it on the radio) and you'll see/hear what I mean.
we do appear to be evolving morality, I think religion is holding us back.

We can hope for the day we evolve sufficiently that we no longer employ mythology as an understanding of morality

"Eastern new birth Philosopher-emperor Kong Xiangxin outlines, comments Shakespearean's early work "



Humanity's self-sovereignty will is the Heaven gives .

Literature, art, is that writers and artists have weighed myself and the world's post.

makes independent thinking, understanding, explanation and perception, in Affection expression_r&#65292;

——Quote from Kong Xiang Xin 's work " Balance Ism Philosophy"

----------

William Shakespeare (AD 1564/4/23--1616/4/23), the European RenaissanceThe greatest genius of the playwright. poet-----

Shakespeare was born in central England that the river Avon Stratford town a wealthy family, Ancestor is the farmer.

Shakespeare's father manage glove , agriculture,Had held the post of local congressman and chief executive that Sitelafu keeps down.

Shakespeare when childhood, some famous theatrical troupes, Every year from London ,Comes to the Sitelafu town Perform,

This makes little Shakespeare, to produce the love of the theater &#65292;Shakespeare had read grammar school ,

Is a Roman poetry and drama, so that Shakespeare had a formal art of enlightenment.

Afterward,,Shakespeare's father went bankrupt, by now, Shakespeare had to drop out of school to earn a living.

When Shakespeare 18 years old, Shakespeare and marries compared to a oneself big 8 year-old woman.

after more than a half year, has given birth to this to husbands' and wives' big

His wife was satirizes actually, ridicule poor Shakespeare, Shakespeare's father, bankruptcy,

This makes Shakespeare great perplexed, depression, Only when attentive read home collection of books , forget self agony.

Shakespeare do this, his wife, blame, call names Shakespeare is more fiercer, crueler.





and the decline of the family, Wife never stops the blame , call names to Shakespeare,

So that Shakespeare's own sovereignty will, Been a heavy Oppression.

Shakespeare's comedy "Twelfth Night" he wrote: "A woman is always going to marry a larger than her own men,

She and her husband will be able to harmony,Her husband's mind to maintain balance, tranquility".

As the social position of Shakespeare's family dropped to the lowest point, love has been destroyed&#65292;People is ridiculed, satirizing Shakespeare&#65292;

Such very bad environment, force Shakespeare to use ego to balance wisdom , the ability, Pairs of Shakespeare's infinite innermost pain&#65292;

have accepted people's heavy insulting , non-free life.

In 1585, Shakespeare made a decision&#65292; alone to London to develop their own&#65292;

A free, happy life.

After London, by now, Shakespeare by oneself that long, must become in the world unprecedented great, immortal, the lofty cultural hero's most intense hope,

must creates for the humanity never the highest happiness, perpetuates the comfort this most beautiful hope flaming is burning chest's Shakespeare,

to realize oneself that to create greatly, immortal, surpassed all ancient times play's longest illusion, was being full of the great fervor, the life vigor youth, the beautiful gentry dream.

Despite such fanciful Shakespeare, ambitious Superman's dream, but Shakespeare or a mortal, this lives in sun's Shrine enjoys immortal's good wine phoenix.

but must lay down own wing, back to earth from the sky, onto for an unknown ordinary people,worry for their own clothing, food, housing, the transportation .

create for the own future great play, and accumulated experience of life and drama, strength, practice itself bravely in the daily life to people's universal love, make their sentiments perfectly .

But one who, despite being the world's most outstanding moral, ethical ,that but must this person be able to grasp firmly, controls own destiny, By their King.

But one should grasp firmly master their own destiny,own are own king,

must uphold, full utilization, displays own self-sovereignty will.

Only in this way, this person will not make non-justice forces of slaves.

If a person not self-sovereignty will, that person must want to practice own outstanding moral, ethical , is extremely difficult.

It's like a man in the big desert without water,this person must breed fish , is extremely difficult to achieve.

Sometimes people tend to make issues with spelling errors and typos that really don't affect the topic being discussed particularly.
The main effect of continuous use of misspelled words is one of the means by which one of our greatest deceivers on these threads has been caught several times in a lie, using the very same misspelled words and the same manner of using the words under different names which they claimed were not the same poster, but as it turned out they were the same poster, which they eventually admitted to.
So it is not so much that people can't understand what a person means if they misspell a word or make a typo, but whether repeating the same error many times may give away some secrets.
Oh holy fk! More meandering from the resident OC.

Good post.
I now call the central tenets of the theory of evolution fact. Although no scientific theory can be proven, evolutionary theory comes as close as you can - close enough to call a fact. The theory can't be upturned without discovering something as dramatic as a Matrix reality or Last Thursdayism being the case, or uncovering a trickster god that wanted us to believe that life had evolved. If I can call less well established ideas facts, I think that I can call Darwin's idea fact as well.
What do you think?
Agreed.

At this point, I'd nearly accept that as axiomatic.

Let me point out to you that the negativity of your responses are based solely on your sentimental disposition towards anything related to "God".

There are less than a handful of Christians that can maintain a civil conversation about their religion. Lately, I have had three Christians that started out civil eventually break down and get personal and hostile over my opinions about faith, their bible, their doctrine, and their church.
I guess I understand. We attack what is most cherished to them, Now that the Internet gives us a safe place to express them, they're hearing what we think of their church, and they seem shocked. Since they have always had the freedom to demean and marginalize us unopposed, they're not used to hearing our thoughts.
They will. Watch as our ideas replace theirs. It seems inevitable to me that their ideas will become progressively more socially unacceptable and evoke increasingly more contempt and ridicule over the next few decades. Eventually, that will silence them. I expect that there will be a closet available soon ready for immediate occupancy.
Gotta love those people who wear gold crosses or other such jewelry, wear funny hats, strange clothing, horrible haircuts, stick fish and "I-Heart-Jesus" stickers on their cars - and then tell me to keep my atheism to myself.

Well said.

Me, too. I'm also agnostic. I don't really see how anything else is possible at this point. How could you know either way?

I'm also an atheist because, like you, I'm not buying any of the dogma. Nor the mythology, nor the superstitions, nor the magical thinking. I don't believe any of it, so I'm not involved in any religions or any forms of worship. Why would I be.

That makes me an atheist. An agnostic atheist. If I'm not an atheist - if somebody as aggressively anti-theistic as I am doesn't count as an atheist because - then the word is useless.

I wouldn't be surprised if you're also an atheist. You don't seem to believe in a god either.

I do think that we should look at people like them and salute them, even if they said don't worship us as we are not Gods, we are humans like you, but i think they are Gods in my eyes. They gave up everything to help others and in the end they got nothing. Too good people do exist, they do, they do!!!

Are you sure that I am the one who hates women here?

Where is the contradiction?

If you understood the Bible you would know that there are various people speaking in the Bible, each having their own conception of what God is or relying on different attributes.

The differences in perspectives or characterisations of God are due to the differences in the subjectiveness of the perceptions of the various men, regarding the nature of God.

Hence there is no contradiction in God in the Bible, but there may be contradiction about God in the Bible.

What I have said about me being a God is not contradicting anything. You are making a baseless claim.

Do you even understand the style of writing that is used to compose the Bible?

DUNCE!
