<quoted text>Then everything in the bible is only for the time period when it was written. You can't pick and choose. If we were living during the salem witch trials, you would be telling me that "do not kill" doesn't have to apply when dealing with witches, because clearly "do not kill" was for moses but "do not suffer a witch to live" is for salem.
Do not presume to know what I'd do...

Funny how many Christians consider the KJV as the only Bible.
And the atheists agree.

Imagine that.

I did already, in the post you responded to...
"OCB & Mac's reasoning is that ancient means really old, but only as old as they deem it, to suit their argument that the crusades isn't an ancient part of our history."
That is still not circular logic, that is simply demonstrating how subjective ancient is. Why do you think we ask for people to define things so often? There are a lot of things in the world that are subjective because we made them.

I liked this quote:
"The Catholic Church is more concerned about preventing contraception than preventing child rape; it’s more concerned about preventing gay marriage than genocide. This is a real inversion of priorities that completely falsifies any discussion of morality in the church."
Can't argue that.
That line about contraception reminded me of Hitchen's excellent little mini documentary on mother teresa. She, after all, during her nobel prize acceptance speech that "abortion is the greatest destroyer of peace."

<quoted text>Says RR. I could find a thousand christians who would offer a different interpretation of just those few verses, let alone the whole bible.
There is no final authority on what it "really means," there is no arbiter on what is for whom and how to separate allegory from historical retelling - the whole book is simply a mess. The sooner you quit with these mental gymnastics the sooner you will realize why atheists in fact do exist - we are capable of reading the many holy books with an objective eye, and all of them are completely ridiculous.
Only the biblically ignorant think he bible is "a mess".

I am quite reasonably sure that if we were alive during the salem witch trials you would use that verse as "evidence" of god's hatred of witches. Perhaps I might even agree with you. Or do you think you would be the same person as you are today if raised in a totally different environment?

<quoted text>Well, the two largest charitable benefactors in the US are Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, both atheists. You are willfully ignoring the point. Gross receipts are irrelevant. Christian charities are demonstrably the most inefficient ways to donate, with over 90% of the proceeds going to overhead. This has been documented and demonstrated to you before.
That has never been demonstrated to me, unless you consider a Topix post a "demonstration"...

BUT, my post was in response to your "beyond beliefs" site and contributing to the folks that have suffered tornado losses.

And you changed the goalposts to warren Buffet & Bill Gates...

It is at least as much of a mess as your statement above. Imagine if textbooks all had the same grammar of your post here. That is the quality of your bible.

<quoted text>He owns a Gulfstream 5 and a Citation X and has an airport in his compound with intersecting runways, all financed by gullible Christians and all tax free. His "missions" take him to such destitute places as Aruba, Bali, and Bora Bora where he commands the beaches and drinks with umbrellas in them for Jesus.
What is wrong with these people?
I've always had problems with those big time Evangelists. Slick and smooth talkers. Better at it than used car salesmen.
It always seems to be some sort of human failure, the love of power and the love of money and ego I'm sure.

just kinda pisses me off.

No, people who demand proof of God's existence are the smart ones.

Why worship something that is obviously not there?

If you worship in the approved manor nowadays you are supporting a church and a minister. You really need to demand proof first.

It is, by definition, not a religion. The only reason the term exists is because our fellow humans get pretty worked up about their sky buddies. It's surreal. Inexplicable. Absurd.
