It is in the Bible. Dragons, UNicorns and even four legged birds!

It is full of stuff like that. It is not a history book. Never was and never will be. It is allegory, traditions and legends of the Hebrews.

When did Chills threaten you with Hell ?
So far she is as set in her beliefs as you are in yours.
I could easily make a mockery of both your beliefs. What would the gain me?
It's true that anyone could make fun of their beliefs, your beliefs or anyone else's beliefs.

I think it's a catch 22. But Kait has not come on here asking, much less telling, people that her way is the only true way. Nor has she tried to convert anyone to her beliefs ever.

I think all of us get tired of the fundamentalist crap on here to the point that we sometimes cannot see past that. But I have given rope to those who turned out trying to hang me with it. I am cautious almost to the point of distrust of every theist who comes here.

You are a theist on a non-theist thread. You did not come here preaching that your way was the 'right' way. You didn't come in telling things that you knew non-believers would make light of. It could be just chill's age and lack of knowledge, or it could be that she's just pulling your leg and anyone else's she can. Sure wouldn't be the first time it's happened.

Kait has a very hard way of saying things. I know that. I think when people are harsh, others don't always give them credit for what they say that is correct. You seemed to be able to do that with her which is to your credit. She seems to be able to do that with you, which is to her credit. It's a beginning point.

Yes, I have and its refreshing.
Interesting traditions. I like the Teutonic Mythos myself. I want a Viking funeral. I have all the clothes and the sword. <smile>
Now THAT is preparation! I just want to be cremated and have my ashes spread in the N Ga mountains so they'll fertilize the mountain laurel. They have given me so many years of sheer beauty the least I can do is return to the ground on which they have bloomed for me.

<quoted text> Why not offer to have a discussion on her beliefs instead since she doesn't believe in the Christian mythos nor any of its attending support data?
I think sometimes we forget, or at least I do, that the world is a very large place with many systems of belief. I get so bogged down here arguing with those who have little to know knowledge of what they claim to believe and preach regardless of the lack of knowledge, I sometimes forget there are people here with totally differing belief systems.
Kait has been the target of almost every Christian on Topix. She finally just started treating them with the disrespect they treated her. I know that feeling. I tried to be nice to everyone when I first came on Topix. I have lost all patience doing that.
Maybe just for today we can skip over the biting people's heads off. I don't know that I can, but I'm going to try not to call anyone an idiot today. It may be a small goal, but it's a goal.
Well said Water, and I agree. I was on PTAG and read all the Garbage spewed at Kait. I replied to her some time ago in question about her beliefs and the family origins of them due to personal interest. There was a good conversation going on the thread. Unfortunately about that same time, some snagged a hold of the label and would not let a respectful conversation be had. Based on my *own* communications with her, I find her to be kind and respectful. I have to be honest, some of her post’s to others do make me blush, while others simply make me laugh. One thing can be said about Kait, she certainly knows how to get her point across in very few words.

I've blushed at a few of hers and others. I've laughed at many. I can't say I would use the language she uses, but I can be very straightforward myself.

I gave her the benefit of the doubt.
I hope you all understand that theists are as adamant that God exists as atheists are that God doesn't.

Many atheists here say they "know" God doesn't exist and saying "Your Bibkle proves your god is a fraud" etc.

I guess I just see both sides as going over the tap and bashing each other unstead of finding common ground.

Note how Kati was quick to bash Jesus as having nothing in common with the Wiccan creeds (not Tuscan BTW). And further saying she read the Bible just to see what it says and was convinced it was worthless and stolen etc.

Chill; belief is not knowledge. Belief is *belief.* Why can't christians figure that out?

Nope. I've read the thing. But not with a desire to believe; I read it merely to see what was in it, and discovered for myself that it flat-out lies. When people *want* to believe, they stop thinking.

Wellsir, Aesop's fables are not a self-contradictory book which is claimed by fervent followers to be the inerrant word of any god.
<quoted text>
Oh, absolutely; taken in its proper context, there's is some insight to be gained from it. But threats of damnation and eternal punishment for disbelief? I mean, come on! What kind of an all-knowing, all-powerful and all-compassionate god needs to demand fealty through threats of eternal immolation?

She demands, however indirectly, that you accept hers.

And DOC'S response to me after I shared my testimony was so sweet. I'm glad I pulled it up, it was a great reminder of why I came to this thread in the first place.
