Exactly.

When the religious "faith" has been reduced to simply making up what one wishes using a particular set of mythology as a "guide," it indeed showcases the death of the religion. I see it quite a bit, really, and it often accompanies a belief that the dogma set forth in this religion was not meant to be taken seriously.

It sort of reminds me of this person (who, for all I can tell, appears to be serious):

I suppose to tell us farmers markets and flea market fruit and vegetable venders don't exist where you live. Where the mom and pop farmers work all summer peddling their goods, in a very small time way.
I never said that farmers markets and flea markets do not exist. What I did say was that the number of people doing so is the vast minority.

You have confused yourself again, Aura. Please pay attention.

This is main stream Americans with small farming operations, that exist everywhere here. They set up shacks and tables or in a open air market, as well as roadside stands where they sit during the growing seasons.
...but they are, proportionally, the vast minority compared to the population overall. Folks who own plots of farmland are the minority when compared to the overall population as well.

Local vendors' business is dwarfed by that of large corporations. Most people (in terms of overall population) live in urban and suburban areas, and most of those people go to local chain groceries - stores that are part of large conglomerates or that are large corporate bodies themselves (like Wal-Mart) that do not sell locally-produced items.

I must say your imitation of a "freethinking" intellectual is of a very high caliber, but I must point out that there are certain factory stampings still visible displaying where such ability was manufactured. I would suggest you get a polishing cloth and plenty of compound and endeavor to remove those stamps. It would enhance the depth of your polish. Give you more lustre.

You make some astute observations, but your programming shows, which means you haven't dissociated yourself enough from the action/reaction and ideology of the process you went through to really get into the nitty gritty of existence and the deeper designs built into it. The difference between a detached observer and a thrall.

Speaking of dependence on grocery store chains.

That was a lot of cattle in a few days, and quite unexpected. Plus you can see where the inventory has been shrinking from other causes related to an upcoming food shortage.

Urban and suburban areas are the ones that will do the big competing for the food supply, and they are also the ones dependent upon the transportation network, which in turn is dependent on agriculture and energy production. The alcohol used in gas comes from crops that woul dhave been food.

A very, very tangled and delicate web of dependencies. Such is why you have such a conflict between those involved in the industries and the ideological activists who sometimes hijack government. Taxes and regulations really need to be thought out more and less kneejerk.

It is the masses, and the concentrated ones in urban and suburban areas that pay the biggest price for the political fun and games.

I wonder if the politics and ideology is part of a bigger evolutionary process?

<quoted text>I would agree that most wars are not religious, although you can't deny that some have been. However, even in religious wars billed as such, it's oftentimes clear that religion is simply used as a tool to sell the war to a pious populace; the real motivations usually being economic or a desire for power. Still, while it's doubtful that all religious wars are truly religious in nature from the leader's perspective, religion is still used as a powerful tool to gain the support of the public.
Nice. I agree.

Another post with nothing to refute anything I have posted. You can not refute me Al, all you can do is attack me. Typical Christ-insanity-ists behaviour: when you can't deal with the message attack the messenger.

If you believe that makes you look justified Al you are wrong. It makes you look mean, stupid and ineffective. Why do you do that to yourself?

<quoted text>PLENTY is wrong with RR, as I know you know.
I just posted to him and you are correct- to a normal person with a normally functioning brain capable of full comprehension, what I said was completely clear.
So we know why it wasn't at all clear to RR.
And you are spot on as to growing up "to be" gay (the two words RR got stuck on) and what you say is exactly what I meant and you said it very well.
Thanks, Rev!
You are very welcome. It is nice to be working with you here.

I believe even the other Christians can see where RR is not quite right although not a one of them would admit it or try and help him by telling him to stop. If he can stop. He may not be able to stop what he is doing. Mostly because I am guessing he finds it cute and clever to keep throwing a clog into the works since he has nothing else with which to defend himself against the overwhelming evidence against all of his bronze aged beliefs.

I feel sorry for RR and the other loony tunes.

Clearly Al does not think. If he did he would come up with an answer as to why the Bible has thousands of contradictions which disqualify it as reliable and trustworthy.

And if the two of you were honest you would both admit that the Bible has thousands of contradictions which disqualify it as reliable and trustworthy; it is unreliable and untrustworthy.

Everyone knows it. So why lie about it?

Are you saying that you don't like it when people twist your words??
Good. Now you know how it feels. Please stop doing it to me.
You have failed to provide any evidence that your words have been twisted RR.

Do you believe that people can accuse someone and because they are accused the accusation is accurate and true? Just because someone asserted it?

If I say you have green pointed ears does that make it true because I bothered to write it down?

Aesop never claimed that animals can REALLY talk; your STUPID bible does.

And probably TOO dumb to actually know just how dumb you are.
But your stupidity is quite neck and neck with how smarmy and duplicitous you are.....

Can you disprove the existence of elves? They are invisible according to those who believe in them, so keep that in mind.
(hint: you cannot disprove the existence of elves)
Since it is not possible for you to disprove the existence of elves, are you suggesting that the default position is to believe in elves?
Do you believe in elves, Hazem?
you are changing the subject my friend, we ae not talking about elves
where talking about god, that's what the atheists usually do, you throw questions and want us to do all the work, i want you to give me a single prof that god doesn't exist, it shouldn't be that hard
I have like a million profs that god exists.

You have (as usual for a religionist) provided nothing to prove your position.
Every body on earth is born an atheist. Anyone that ends up believing in any particular faith has been brainwashed.
No evidence whatsoever for your position means I win.
Christianity is like all other religions on earth....myth.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
I can't see why the pew warmers object to the fact that we are all born Atheists or Non-theists and growing up around our parents and other people we acquire their beliefs almost like through osmosis.

We could say that none of us were born speaking English. We learned to speak English from growing up around people who spoke it.

In my case I grew up speaking one language at home and another because of what everyone around me spoke. I was not born with any language, just as Christians were not born with any religion. It is all learned.

We are all born with certain essential traits and a personality forms around them. Our personality develops just by being around other people and absorbing their manifestations. Something is ours and something is acquired. Why that upsets Christians so much is a mystery to me.

Perhaps because they all secretly know, but would never admit that if they had been born in a Muslim country they would be Muslims today and not Christians.
