<quoted text> Doin' pretty well. Had a bad fall and ripped the tendons and ligaments in the knee on which I had surgery. It's a setback, though a fairly minor one. I didn't damage the hardware of the new knee. I really thought I'd ruined it when I first fell. Spent half a day at the ER to get the good news that I hadn't. Well worth the time!
How's about you?
maybe you should subscribe to the medical alert notification necklace - you know the one they advertise with the "i've fallen and i can't get up" campaign....

Inscriptions in the country of the Gauls read a familiar record too.'The Chaste virgin and her son The Son of God'. Also inscribed on ancient Gaul stele was 'He who hath ears to hear, let him hear'. These were Pagans, wassie. Their writings precede Christianity. Kinda does make you think that just maybe your Bible story was stolen from other societies, doesn't it? Of course you will not see it, but I just thought I'd bring a little enlightenment your way.
i think your belief system is indicative to who you are and hope that it brings you to where you belong!:)

I keep forcing the buybullbots to think by showing them the same thing you just mentioned; they don't care. They childishly want their jeebus, and they demand that *we* accept it.
"I keep forcing the buybullbots..."

yes kait, IT IS YOU who's doing the forcing of your beliefs down others throats, not me

no hard feelings on my end; how about on yours?:)
I'll tolerate you, Wassie, because that's my nature.

I doubt I'll ever like you.

I had a strange experience in being an organist in the local Episcopal church for many years, then time took its' toll with a poor choir and an amateur conductor. So, I resigned the position after many years and then it might be a good thing to become a member of the church. Then reality hit - I didn't really care to be a member and the senior Priest had a fit when I told him that my High School major was Latin (for college requirement) and the wonderful teacher told us many stories of the Roman Gods, rituals, etc. So, there is a "man of faith' in a small little town and before that he and his wife were on the Pacific island of Guam. Does that say anything about his high minded profession?

Braveheart: Exactly!! Religion is all man-made and this notion that if you are a Christian, you go to HELL and burn FOREVER!!!!!
Now isn't that sort of 'scaring the Hell out of little kids, or dumb-bell older people?'

I'm so glad that I left the membership of a local church.

There is a great book available entitled "The Christian Myth". It tells it like it is.

you're making the classic fatal mistake of looking at christianity through your experience with people and/or an institution.

the only perfect example of Christianity is Christ Himself. in the the OT law, the priest had to 'examine the lamb for flaws' and similarly we are to examine the life and words of the "Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world" and you'd be hard-pressed to find fault in Him:)

There is also the book The Mythmaker by Hyam Maccoby which shows you verse by verse where Paul completely created the Christian religion against Peter and James(Jesus` brother). They led the Nazarine movement after the death of Jesus. He just couldn't cut it so he went out and preached that the old testament and the torah was dead. He also preached for everyone to accept their place in life, even slavery, and not fight for their freedom, their freedom would come in an afterlife. The Romans loved that idea and adopted it for that reason.

YOU'RE THE ANTICHRIST/ROMAN in the story, unless you repent and become born-again!

Wrong again, I just like envisioning so-called "Christians" being mauled by ferocious animals and wonder why they even got themselves into that position to begin with.

It would add excitement to any day.

Look out behind you!! Here comes Mustafa now!!

ROOOOOOAAAAARRRR!!

Wait a minute - I thought you said I was the "Anti-Christ".

C'mon now waassssuuupp, you can't just go changing around who gets that title, by just a whim.

Is it this poster or me?

I personally disagree with any proclamations you make, because in truth, you ain't got shite in evidence to say such nonsense to begin with.

Why do you have to call people unfounded names?

Does it give you a rise to be this obnoxious?
