Another open threat from a christer...no surprise.
It is a nice example of what a rotten, fear ridden religion will do to people. Too bad it's not working as your christian religion is declining everywhere.
At least your hell-place is not a threat as it's not real but apparently your aggressive nature towards others who do not believe as you do requires caution, but not fear.
The only question that remains is how long will it be before you begin acting out your threat on innocent people?

It's great to see the Christians out sharing the love of Jesus tonight.
They're always looking for new members, if anyone is interested.
They gotta get their licks in before Sunday so they can go get cleansed of their "sins". Once cleansed they can start over again.
That praying stuff they do apparently works wonders for them. They can forgive themselves of almost anything...and a little tithe to the pastor always helps.

For those of you who knew and adored Dearth of Couth, please be with his wife and family in your thoughts today.

His wife contacted me about 10 minutes ago and told me he had a massive heart attack and died in his sleep last night.

His wit, wisdom and personality will be greatly missed by all who admired him.

I would appreciate it if no hateful remarks would be made, but I know there will be some who will show just how dark their hearts are. For those who care about him, it won't make any difference.

Well, good for him. If you're gonna go, go quick.

He was a unique individual on the boards. Always calm, always resolute, patient with the silliness that came his way continuously, well reasoned, well-spoken, with a quick wit, sharpened just enough to do the job. I admired his persona, and he influenced my approach after meeting him.

I'll lift a glass to him this evening at 6pm CST, and pour out one upon the earth to his name. Any and all feel free to join me if you wish.

Oh WN...I can not even put in to words right now what I am feeling. We have lost many in these threads that we have called friend...who we came to look forward to reading their words.

Please pass on to his family my compassion and empathy for their loss and that he will be missed also by his WINLAC family.

Strange how people can gather in a place such as this and form such bonds as we do. I still miss Micah and his attitude!

Will hot chocolate do? I guess not. He wasn't the hot chocolate kinda person. I'll join you though. I think I have a bottle of wine. He appreciated good wine. I don't mind pouring one out upon the earth to his name. I am so happy he didn't suffer for a long period of time and left this earth while asleep.

Cheers, DoC! Wherever you are, I know that those present are rejoicing at your presence among them.

I am reminded of the song 'Only the good die young' when I think of those we have lost here. WiP, Micah, DoC and others.

Seems Jesus had the same feelings. Thus most Christians are abandoned by their own 'deity'. If their book is "The Truth" then most will hear "I know you not."

<quoted text>i agree. he went on further to say that buddhism was the religion of the future. unlike atheists buddhist do not believe that consciousness ends at the demise of the vehicle/body.
The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.(Albert Einstein)
Buddhism though has become, like Christianity, far removed from the original philosophy and way of life taught by its founder.

I don't think I understand a bit of that second paragraph. Not surprising, I guess, considering the author.
Who says atheists "believe that consciousness ends at the demise of the vehicle/body?"
Some do, some don't.

Note that Judaism is divided on the issue as well.

What falls from the mouth is not the same as what flows from the heart.

An apology is not repentance. You are still damned.
