You're not supposed to; otherwise, it isn't faith.

Just stick an antenna on your roof. You won't get many channels, but the ones you will get will be free.

<quoted text> It may have been in early Africa. There were those with larger heads and brains who taught peace and compassion, and those with smaller heads who were not. The smaller conspired to kill off the docile leaders, and the result was warring generations and nations. I forget now what they were called, but it is a very ancient legend.

Anything is "absurd" to you, if it doesn't come out of your book of lies and fairytales.

<quoted text>There is nothing to "believe" about the origin of our existence. "I don't know", is a much better answer that making up imaginary friends that allow you to act like an a-hole.
And you still haven't answered, the origin of what? I know where Girl Scout cookies come from. Richmond, VA.

"you don't know" is a lazy and evil way to escape the same scrutiny that you like to put on believers.
Just when I thought you couldn't get any more stupid...

You prefer a made-up lie over an honest "I don't know."

"I don't have to think or be responsible; I'm *forgiven!!*" Now, THAT'S lazy and evil.

Worked at a drug and alcohol rehab for four years.

Hardly any potheads.
Alcohol, cocaine and opiates are the number 1, 2 and 3 most dangerous drugs in the USA.

Hi all
I am new here. Just signed up because frankly, I like to discuss contentious things like religion, politics and chili recipes.
As for the topic of the thread, I would say I am no longer a Christian simply because logic and evidence tend not to support it. I view worship of Yahweh in much the same way I view worship of other iron-age deities like Ra, Zeus, Marduk and Jupiter.
The only difference is that Yahweh's fan base tends to be larger and more tenacious.
Welcome to the zoo. Be careful as you pass by the jesus-fundies' cages; they have a nasty tendency to crap into their hands and fling it at the horrified visitors.

Here's your umbrella, and watch your step.

No you don't. You have four samples of hearsay, at best.

Okey dokey, for anyone who might be still interested, I found the list I was looking for recently. It was tucked away in "Understanding Daniel", something I wrote a few years ago while the family waited for me dear ole dad to pass away.
Please feel free to scroll on by if it ain't your bag.
Identifying the Traits of Apocalyptic Literature:
1. Eschatology: Authors of apocalyptic literature are convinced that they are living in the “end times”, that very soon the deity will intervene and everything will change. It is imminent and it will happen soon.
2. Pseudepigraphy: Apocalyptic literature typically presents itself as being written during a previous time by a hero of old, someone recognizable from the past for the purpose of establishing credibility. We have apocalypses written in the names of Enoch, Abraham, Moses, Ezra, Daniel, John and others.
3. Mystical Visions: Apocalyptic authors have their heroes experience confusing divine visions that will often need to be explained by a divine being. These visions will typically be of surreal creatures or events used metaphorically to represent people or places of the author’s past, present and imagined future.
4. Failure: Apocalyptic literature is always wrong. The events leading up to the time of authorship are relevant and amazingly very accurate; the events following the time of authorship are always, always wrong. After all, who can truly tell the future, eh?
Now if I can just remember where I got the friggin' list.
The Mystical Visions seem to harken back to the Oracles whose incoherent mutterings were "translated" by the attending preists/preistesses. It also is characteristic of Shamanistic pracices around the globe and may be a common "facet" of the entire human species.

Jl, come on; that doesn't even make any sense. What are you talking about, "Topix logic?"
There are many people--myself included--who believe that jehovah is no more real than Zeus or Neptune, Pluto or Athena. You don't believe in those four Greek and Roman gods; why do you expect anyone to believe in yours?
Can you point out any difference between them, other than claiming, "Well, the bible says...." Your bible cannot be used to prove itself accurate.
Exactly! Well said!
