That's like 345 in human years.

If anything, they're taking advantage of me.

Why am I the one who has to travel the entire world in one night and stuff my fatass down chimneys carrying a bag that weighs 50 metric tons, while they are just tinkering in their little climate controlled workshop sipping on eggnog and eating gingerbread strippers?

Yeah, they make gingerbread strippers with little chocolate chip pasties.

-- Robert Green Ingersoll, quoted from the book Ingersoll the Magnificent, edited by Joseph Lewis, which does not cite references
The ministers are in duty bound to denounce all intellectual pride, and show that we are never quite so dear to God as when we admit that we are poor, corrupt and idiotic worms; that we never should have been born; that we ought to be damned without the least delay.... The old creed is still taught. They still insist that God is infinitely wise, powerful and good, and that all men are totally depraved. They insist that the best man god ever made, deserved to be damned the moment he was finished.
-- Robert Green Ingersoll, "Some Mistakes of Moses" (1879)

Wouldn't it be easier just to pay off our credit cards in January?

What do you have to do with sentience? Your misogyny does not alarm me. I expect it. You are the definition of depravity, which is why you are attract tend to the religion of the depraved. I am in a long line of women that you will never have, and who look down upon you with disgust and derision, and I know one day you will be someone's little boy toy in prison. Enjoy.

That is the big problem that few will face.
Their deity walked the Earth for 30 years but had to wait until he was dead to explain everything to a couple of clueless Greeks.
Makes no sense at all unless said deity was a clueles twit, too.
And yet not one table, bookcase, or even a chair from the Jesus line.

I used to think that no one could be that idiotic. I thought they were just horsing around. Turns out they're serious. If that doesn't scare you, nothing will.

I am not arguing your opinion. I am arguing your flawed and biased methodology.
Apply the same standards across the board is all I ask of anyone.
G, I could say the same to you. You appear to take the Jewish writings above history and almost everything else. But I don't call you dishonest or flawed due to that.

Maybe you could work on your presentation skills.

Nah.

The orthodox faith painted God as a revengeful being, and yet people talk about loving such a being.

Why do you consider religious propaganda as less "historical" than political propoganda (which is exactly what most of the documents are)?

On-the-sled financing has a 32% interest rate so I stopped using it.

But the reindeer food I can get at Tractor Supply. Whatcha got in trade?

In matters of religion it is very easy to deceive a man, and very hard to undeceive him.
