QUESTIONS:
1) During moments of sadness or depression, why do we feel a dull, constricted and slightly painful sensation in the center of the chest region?
2) Why are these symptoms of suffering not felt in the brain since most believe, as science tells us, that the brain is everything?
(smiles)
It's called physiology. Science has told us that EVERYTHING is in the brain? That's news to me. HAve any sources to cite that backs up your assertion?

I wouldn't have replied to him if I read your post first. Pretty much sums it up.

Humans are not fallen. Your religion is putrifyingly ill. It comes with instructions on how to treat slaves.
Your disdain for slavery does not change the fact slavery was universal in the ancient world. Nor does it address the fact slavery is equally as valid as poicies against slavery since it is humans who determine right and wrong in a world absent God. Your disdain carries no real weight other than your opinion. If we have no souls and there is no accountability since there is no existence post death then people can come to a different conclusion than do you when it comes to slavery. If we can own dogs then we can own people. Anti slavery only makes sense if human rights are derived from an ultimate Authority which holds us accountable for how we treat each other. That we all have unalienable rights which cannot be denied without severe consequences in a court of no appeal. Atheism reduces people to the level of big brained animals. Nothing more since it could be argued insects are more adapted and stronger than humans.

Omnipotence DOES mean omniresponsibility.
An "omnipotent god" would be the child AND the cancer that kills the child.
"God" killing "God".
And I thought "thou shall not kill". And I thought suicide was a "sin" too!
Your god CANNOT exist because it killed itself already in the beginning by trying to exist and not exist at the same time, by trying to be and not be.
Have you ever seen a light be ON and OFF - at the same time?
NO!
It's IMPOSSIBLE!
Existance is an either/or, NOT a both/and.
Either you're here - or you're not.
"An "omnipotent god" would be the child AND the cancer that kills the child."

WTF? I don't think you know what omnipotent means......

Just like magic, eh?

<quoted text>
in genesis, the language defined the time period in reference to the customary understanding of a day (an earth day) one imagines it did so because of the nature of the word employed. that is: a word which meant time but required context for the length of time was used. It appears that the author, was determined and explicit in his communication that the time in reference, was the common understanding of day.
It is difficult to understand the motivation for denial of this passage. The christian brings dishonor to the text and confusion to communication with his audience, when he discredits such precise language.
Riiiight.

You can skew the words in Genesis all you want so long as it makes the Bible look wrong, huh?

Well, it's a hodgepodge of books written by an ancient people that didn't have much technology. For what it is, it's actually pretty remarkable, even though the bible does get some things wrong.

I agree. And I resent that attitude from the Christians about my species. I resent them spreading such filth about us. To them, we are fatally flawed and of no good whatsoever. According to the Christians, man has only ever created one thing: sin. We brought that into the universe.

We are told that we were born in debt, worthless, and worthy of suffering without some sort of purification first. Without a god, our lives are immoral, meaningless and without purpose. And on it goes. Our very substance - flesh - isn't so much spoken as spat out. Christian misanthropy is a deep pessimism for mankind.

If it were not other human beings saying these things about us, there would be war. If a second intellectual and verbal species evolved on earth, or colonized earth from elsewhere, and they spoke about humanity like that, they would be as despised. So why not rebuke the sickening church and religion that says those very same things for the same reason?

Every human being should reject and resent that. I don't expect the Christians to do so, but shouldn't the rest of us? Shouldn't we denounce such speech the way we would similar comments about the worth of women, gays, seniors, or blacks?

I think it's becoming increasingly in our power to define societal standards regarding what is acceptable to say about mankind and what is acceptable to say about atheists. I don't care for the choices that the Christians have made in either of these areas.

What is the proof of this one god?
To begin with how is he causally connected with the universe?
How did he create this universe from nothing?
How does he govern the universe in the absence of a causal link between this extra-cosmic deity and the universe?
If this god is spirit then what is spirit in terms of its material and force composition?
Spirit is not mind as someone suggested.
Mind is a grade - the deductive aspect - of the manifested unified field of consciousness-energy.
one must assume that your inability to share a cogent thought implies that you do not form such thoughts.

Apparently, you think that you need that to be true, so you hunker down and insist that it is. That's the kind of reality creation - spin -that characterizes religious thought.
"God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day." - Genesis 1:5
This is why we don't let Christians tell us what their bible says, let alone what science is. You have no commitment to truth or reality.
Eh?

"we don't let Christians tell us what their bible says"

Who's "we"? Athitards like you?

I'll bet you don't know that the Hebrew words for evening & morning are ereb & boqer, huh?

I'll also bet that you don't know that in the context of Genesis, ereb & boqer translate into a "vision" that covers many years, not a literal day...

But, go on. Keep up your athistic ability to not see reason.

Right here:
RiversideRedneck wrote: "Yes, they lied. They wanted peace above all, just like toady. They would've said anything to prevent another jihad."
You wrote that they lied about their beliefs - what would be among their most cherished beliefs if they had held them as you imply - rather than face a conflict. That is the definition of a coward. And a liar.
<quoted text>
I reject your values. You're what is unflatteringly called an appeaser.
I remember hearing that word levied at people like me in 2002-03, when we were protesting Bush's rush to his war of aggression. We were called cowards, traitors, appeasers, America haters and the aiders and abettors of terrorists.
What should we call somebody who advocates lies about his beliefs to avoid a conflict? What if they are representing a nation and doing it on a document that will be preserved for posterity? Whatever that is, that is what you are calling those people.
I don't think that that Congress and president were liars or cowards at all. I think that they wrote what they understood to be the truth.
Why am I not surprised? That you protested the war......

You are a coward & a traitor & an America hater.

This is why you moved to Mexico.

Moron.

It's completely realated. Darwin's Theory of Evolution is the widely held notion that all life is related and has descended from a common ancestor: the birds and the bananas, the fishes and the flowers -- all related.

If you don't understand that slavery is immoral, and you're unwilling to see that instructions regarding slavery overtly - not tacitly - condones slavery, you utterly fail to understand morality.
The worst part about your inability to understand morality is that you received this from your religion. Christianity has destroyed your ability to understand what is moral, what is misery, how your fellow human should be treated - how sad!
You need to talk to God to know what He - presumably a perfectly moral being - would not condone slavery?!? Seriously???
I've interviewed a young woman who was stolen from her family, raped and abused till she was broken, turned into a sex slave. She hates men, unreservedly, with all her heart, and fears them. Now, tell me that she would be made whole if only her slavers had access to an instruction manual.
I spit on your morality.
you are far too kind

evolution gives us empathy and ethics, religion removes them and replaces them with xenophobia, paranoia, and christian morals.

RR is merely a (buck based) troll, but he does well represent the vile, ugly, failed morality that is christianity.

"With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." - 2 Peter 3:8
Your god has difficulty with time, doesn't he?
Psalms 90:4 "For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday"
when it is past, and as a watch in the night."

It's metaphor...

It means that God sees a day like we see a thousand years.
And God sees a thousand years like we see a day.
And yesterday to us is like a thousand years to God.
And a thousand years is like a watch in the night, 3 hours.

Meaning: God doesn't recognize time like we do. Not in the least.
