You hate it when I'm right.
I don't hate it when you're right- I posted info from perhaps at least one better source- that being CNN- than that of wiki, that's all....

Wow- for someone who is so sure they are so right you sure are defensive.

Great thing about Wiwkipedia, they put disclaimers on things that have not yet been supported: The examples and perspective in this article may not represent a worldwide view of the subject.

Your first link is just the growth rate in some hand picked countries, since it clearly does not account for the world, also it's the growth based on the current numbers of those who follow. You see, if you look at the Muslim growth rate it's claimed at 1.8%.... that's because it's not the percentage of the total population but the increase in the numbers. You need to learn how to read statistics better.

No, it's an accurate statistic, it's that he doesn't apply it correctly at all. The growth rate is not the percentage of the world population that converts, but the increase in the number of people claiming to follow.

You said you didn't know much about Scientology and then asked what was wrong with it.

YOU read, RR- YOU read- if not what others write, at least what you yourself right- like the phone ringing yesterday, for example- again- your post #594799.

Well aobviously it's a real site, but that part about Jefferson is a lie.

He was a Christian, just didn't like what was happening with the church.

In a private letter to Benjamin Rush, Jefferson refers to himself as "Christian" (1803): "To the corruptions of Christianity I am, indeed, opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only sense in which he wished any one to be; sincerely attached to his doctrines, in preference to all others; ascribing to himself every human excellence..."

As a landowner he played a role in governing his local Episcopal Church; in terms of belief he was inclined toward Deism and the moral philosophy of Christianity, though when he was home he attended the Episcopal church and raised his daughters in that faith.

See #7, Religion.

RR, if I was outright lying, I wouldn't lie about something of so little consequence- I realize that YOU do so all the time, but don't use yourself as a barometer for the behavior of others.
Geez, RR.....
Oh, I see. So a little lie isn't a lie?

um.......

What's wrong with addicited to bike riding? Or jogging? Or swimming?
I'm sure there's a "disease" for all of that...
There's nothing wrong with being addicted to something, as long as you can hold yourself with responsibility.
One could overdo any of the above and cause injury to themselves and that happens a lot.

There is plenty wrong with being addicted to ANYTHING, RR. A compulsive need for anything really isn't healthy.

But I wouldn't expect an addict in denial- such as you are- to realize or accept that.

No, you need to learn to read. Try reading BOTH links.

The first one talks about religion growth rate by count & percentage.

The second one is about sheer growth rate of the world population.

Christianity's population is growing at a rate of 1.3%.
The world's population is growing at a rate of 1.1%.

Inclined to lay down principles as incontrovertibly true.
Science dies that a lot, then realizes its errors & creates a new dogma.
Science once taught that the Milky Way was the galaxy. Then realized it was wrong & started teaching new "knowledge".
Science once taught that the best way to beat a cold is a good bleeding......
Science once taught that the universe is infinite, then finite, then back to infinite.
Etc etc etc
Science scrutinizes it's course an makes the required changes ta keep the main on a course toward it's destination...whilst religion jist flounders about the waves foller'n the bird o' paradise...what's really jist a albatross.

Don't talk to me again until you apologize for calling me a liar for saying that you posted yesterday that the phone was ringing....again, your post #594799.

And for the LAST time, it is OBVIOUS that our founding fathers were one or both of the following:

1. Ambivalent about their personal religious beliefs.

2. Talking out of both sides of their mouths which is part and parcel of being a politician as unfortunate and as unsavory as that is.

they seem to be getting a little twitchy now that the Pew Forum puts US christians at 48% and the NSRI doesnt make it look much better for them.

maybe they`ll start bleating about being a persecuted minority now?

I cant wait to see how many US politicians suddenly lose faith in the next 15 years as their voter demographic changes.

So....as I said, I "guess" he was busy since he said the phone was ringing.

What IS your problem, RR? Are you trying to make the point that you were NOT busy? I did say I "guessed" you were busy- I didn't state that as a fact, but the fact IS you DID say, "ooops phone's ringing".

Just what did I LIE about, you MORON?

God is omniscient, but that does not mean you have the will to choose your path, you can now sin or do good, its your choice, if your meaning that since God knows what u will do than it is not called free will? your wrong he knows, but he is not controlling you, your the one who can either create yourself a bright future or not. For example if u have been bad, ill mannered and so, then u visit your family and do good. God removes the terrible obstacles that were about to crumple you. Nothing is fixed as u think, for God is also omnipotent and there is nothing he cannot do.
so you were lying

you never studied philosophy
