yes it will prove me right, since u believe in its powers i.e your brain's intelectual powers and capabilities. Do you truly believe that u will ever achieve ultimate knowledge, its even scientifically proven that the human mind cannot even comprehend all, even the most brilliant of men have only used something like 3%. so even if u can, your body won't make it. you only have up till 140 or was it 160 years max limit, nowadays age.

LOL! why is it always the god-hating atheist's who argue this more than any other group? even the leaders of catholicism claim that they're a seperate group from all others and that they alone hold the keys to the kingdom....
Here- SUCK on this, RR.

"What is the Catholic Religion?

For the first thousand years of Christianity there was no "Roman Catholicism" as we know it today, simply because there was no Eastern Orthodoxy or Protestantism to distinguish it. There was only the "one, holy, catholic church" affirmed by the early creeds, which was the body of Christian believers all over the world, united by common traditions, beliefs, church structure and worship (catholic simply means "universal"). Thus, throughout the Middle Ages, if you were a Christian, you belonged to the Catholic Church. Any Christianity other than the Catholic Church was a heresy, not a denomination.

Being Catholic Today

Today, however, Roman Catholicism is not the only accepted Christian church.******Thus to be a Roman Catholic means to be a certain kind of Christian:****** one with unique beliefs, practices and traditions that are distinct from those of other Christians. Nevertheless, the Catholic Church continues to maintain that it alone has carried on the true tradition of the apostolic church and has traditionally regarded dissenting groups as heresies, not alternatives (Martin Luther was swiftly excommunicated). However, the recent Second Vatican Council declared all baptized Christians to be "in a certain, although imperfect, communion with the Catholic Church." {1}

Although it did not begin at a specific point in history like the Protestant denominations, in its long history Roman Catholicism has evolved into a distinctive branch of Christianity with beliefs, practices and organization that differ from both Protestantism and Orthodoxy.

The Makeup of Catholocism

******Roman Catholicism is by far the largest Christian group.****** With more than one billion adherents, Catholics constitute about half of the world's Christians.{2} Catholicism is the majority religion of Italy, Spain, and nearly all Latin American countries.

*****In 2001, about 24 percent of Americans identified themselves as Catholic, making Catholicism the largest Christian denomination in America******(if the Protestant denominations are counted individually). The next largest denomination, Baptist, was claimed by 16 percent of Americans.{3} Yet if Protestants are considered as one group, Catholics remain a minority among America's Christians.

And special note from the above: "Roman Catholicism is by far the largest Christian group."

I guess that means you're a MINORITY, huh, RR? ROFLMAO!!!

Such fuel to feed the fire of your self-inflicted persecution complex- too funny!

You have the nerve to call them retarded when YOU'RE the one wrong? What a loser! What OTHER way would anyone (except you of course) define the word minority?

Here, maybe this will help:

minority |m&#601;&#712;nr& #601;t&#275;| noun 1 the smaller NUMBER or part, esp. a NUMBER that is less than half the whole NUMBER:

Listen, RR- sorry the FACT that Catholics are Christians upsets you so much; maybe you should be more upset about all the in-fighting among the umbrella religion of Christianity.
the vatican continually asserts that catholics are the ONLY 'christians'. therefore, it would only stand to reason that catholics are not 'christian' in the protestant sense of the word.

What is correct is that the sky APPEARS/LOOKS blue, but in this case, what appears to be the case actually is not the case.
Then you may as well say there is no color, because technically speaking color is a physiological phenomena , between the color receptors in your eyes and the brain that processes the information.
We call that chromatics. It's all illusion but for all intents the sky is sometimes blue, as surely as it is sometimes black.

False, I repeat every creation, must have been created, Thus I repeat my simple example for you; constructs, automobiles etc. all have been made not created by man (us) thus we are to be created since we are makers, bcuz you do not see something made that can creat or make anything, leading to the makers us, have to be created and NOT made, therefore a creator MUST exist due to our existence..If you try to tell me now that we are creators, I simply refute u by saying, ants for instance, did you create them? they are makers however they follow the rule as I explained above, but they cannot create,ultimately we all lie in this category "creations" of a creator.

if so explain how.
That question is already answered. no deity needed.

bottom line reason why i believe that catholics (in general) are not christian is that they trust in the sacraments/works and the institution for their salvation/justification, while a true Christian trusts in Christ for their salvation/justification.

a good secondary reason not to believe that they're christian is that you're arguing that they are;)

I think that a non-Muslim sees Islam as a poor attempt by someone who was following a certain form of either Christianity or Judaism, but got the idea to change some of those beliefs and create his own set of beliefs, much as Joseph Smith did when he created the scam which is now called Mormonism. Smith was a known scam artist before he came up with his myth of finding gold tablets somewhere in eastern USA (I think in New York state, which is the state which is my near neighbor on our border) allegedly left there by Jews who had traveled to the New World long before any known explorers discovered the New World existed, and which is known to never have occurred.
I don't think any fellow Christians who are not Mormons have any difficulty in accepting that Smith was a fraud, as most would think the same of Muhammad. Muhammad probably seems a bit more mysterious to current people because he was long ago, whereas Smith was in recent history when people who were alive when I was young knew people who were alive when they were young who actually knew Smith.
I've actually read quite about the Mormons, Because I did a research paper which was about polygamy, We support it, I showed that it is a rightful act, which the mormons were quite interting to bring up because they actually support polygamy, YES REDNECK hear that? hahaha I bet he is pissed to hear that. they are a bit different from christianity but I do not remember much. Booooots, your comparison to Joseph Smith with mohammed is irrelevant, for they shared much differnces, that story of him does not fit like the story of Mohammed, I do not see how u could see them as the same.
