It's late. I never came in to argue. I just wanted to share a piece of who I am. I do believe that Jesus was God's sock puppet, so to speak. But I am not affiliated with any religious sect. Christianity, to my knowledge is not and never has been a religion. Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans, Pentecostals, etc. These are all religious organizations. All taxable and searched out, to some degree are responsible for some atrocities. But at most levels I am just like you. I have forsaken religion. The only difference between you and I is that I have chosen not to give up following Jesus because of a bunch of jerks.
I do not by any means think that 'Dearth' anticipated the growth of this forum. I believe there was a day almost five years ago that 'Dearth' was hurt and reached out, starting this forum. That was the person I was looking to talk with and encourage. It still is.

Maybe you should look things up first insead of instantly posting nonsense.
The date range for both persons is from 247 to 118 BC which is a span of 129 years in which both are above ground for 17 years from 183-200 BC. That means Polybius is about 17 when Hannibal dies in 183.

''Fifty years after the end of the war with Hannibal, Polybius began to write his comprehensive history of Rome.''

think about it 'Dearth'.
I've heard many people say they left going to church because there was no love and they got hurt, I was one of them.
But in checking myself out, I realized that far worse had happened in bars, pool halls, etc, but for some reason I never left the other places for the reasons I left church. I found that odd about myself.
So I kept looking inside. What was I really looking for? Then I realized, I was looking for love and happiness.
I'll go on and on........my point is this, look squarely at mr wiggles, the guy is a assh_le. Admit it. Are these assh_les really any better than the other assh_les?
I think not.
I'll close out here. As you can see, I don't have low self esteem. I just came in to hang out and see if you had thrown out the Baby with the bath water.
Take care.

You are trying to disguise your christian beliefs by re-defining what a religion is.
It's not gonna work here.

I think you have to believe that DoC was 'hurt' in order to feel secure about your own beliefs.

Again, if christianity is not a religion, then it should pay the corporate taxes due to Caesar.

There's a lake of fire here in Virginia??
I've been to almost all the Civil War battlefields and all the D.C. Monuments and Museums but never heard of any lake of fire.
Where is it??

PS...Virginia has laws regarding burning shlt...

Okay. I'll buy your argument. Hannibal is God. Are you satisfied now?

Take care.
Then you are projecting your hurt onto DoC and others who weren't hurt at all.

What makes you think DoC didn't look inside? What makes you think you are superior in this way?

Do you think calling others who are not Christian an asshole will endear DoC or anyone else to you...on a thread of non-Christians?

You just came BACK here because you can't stand being away. And you're so sure you can 'save' those who aren't part of your mythology that your ego won't let you leave.

Go ahead now and laugh normally.

Why must you twist what I write? Why are Christians always so dishonest.

Or are you in a subtle way (or not so subtle) damning me to your imaginary hell-place??
My my, christianity as a religion and non-religion (according to you) has the same end result for those who dare to disagree with you and you kind.

That's OK...I wish you no harm. Only you wish harm to me. See why I don't like your religion or whatever you want to call it??
