I have been away for the last three or four days.

Not specifically looking for a god, but I did keep my eyes and ears peeled in case one tried to sneak up on me.

No gods appeared (and it was a very successful trip).

As for the Redneck: What's the use? He's hopeless, ignorant, brainwashed, wiseass high school dropout, but I may continue to goof on the poor slob.

Sonny, your comprehension sucks. You flunked out didn't you?

A former atheist scientist saw the light.

No one stuffed anything you bigot idiot.

You are a little late, atheists wrote God's obituary fifty years ago. For the thousandth time.

Oh, and rational atheist scientists do too. The first to assert the Big Bang now isn't so sure about God.
Interesting that countless cultures believe in the supernatural, but not one single culture has accepted ss couples as married for any length of time.

Death comes to everyone. Underline that. Death is the issue. And that is the reason why it does not matter how much knowledge there is, Religion will always be a top subject. Because religion is the only subject that deals with death and God. Science deals with life on earth and knowing. Science cannot compete with death. And that is why Science cannot compete with God. because most people believe after death, then God.
Sorry, but to me, making sh*t up just so you feel good and don't have to face your fears is pretty irrational.

Questions.
Does the bulk of Christianity consider Jesus Creator?
Why?
You don't know my belief system.
Smile.
You didn't offend me. But you did reveal that you can't have a discussion without dropping to a lower level.

"Does the bulk of Christianity consider Jesus Creator?"
- you are asking the wrong question. I understand that you don't want to be honest, but to get to the 'truth'- if it actually exists, then you need to begin with:

"Where does Jesus call himself the Creator?" You know....something like - "I am the Creator."....or even, "I am God."
- claiming "John" said Jesus said, is a bit of a stretch, don't you think, considering "John" is not a proven being - as to whom wrote the text. He is an unknown. Thus, his words are considered as a second-hand source and not 100% accurate.

Another point you should be addressing is - "Where does 'God' specifically state which texts are of 'His' inspiration and which are not?" And then go from there to, "Where does 'God' specifically state which bishops at the Council of Nicea have the authority to decide which are of "God's inspiration" and which are not?" Especially when "God" inspires EVERYONE - which is a fundamental belief in your religion.

Do you limit "God's" inspiration?

No other person in this world and reality, can be inspired by "God" to write another "gospel"?

I still disagree.

- who is anyone to state that one is not inspired by this "God"? Who is anyone who thinks they know the mind of this "God", to claim they know whom is inspired and who isn't.

There you go.....questions for you to answer, in order for me to get clarification of what you actually believe.

Or do you just - uhm....follow along with everyone else?

Cheers!

The point is, you lied.
You said "the church" excommunicated Phelps, not "his church".
You atheists have done everything you can to make it painfully obvious that when you say "the church", you don't mean a particular church, you mean "Christian doctrine" and "Christianity".
The point.
Jeez. Talk about a pedantic a-hole.

Were you completely unable to parse from the context that "the church" meant "Westboro Baptist Church"? Or are you really that stupid? You don't have to answer that. We already know the answer.

You might also consider that there are a great many gospels besides the four that were approved by the Council of Nicaea.

Sorry, just skimmed your post the first time. You did, tangentially, mention the additional gospels.

Christianity doesn't fit the definition of a cult.
Dumb ass.
The signs or hallmarks that accompany a cult apply directly to Christianity.

Quoting:
*Absolute authoritarianism without meaningful accountability.

*No tolerance for questions or critical inquiry.

*No meaningful financial disclosure regarding budget, expenses such as an independently audited financial statement.

*Unreasonable fear about the outside world, such as impending catastrophe, evil conspiracies and persecutions.

*There is no legitimate reason to leave, former followers are always wrong in leaving, negative or even evil.

*Former members often relate the same stories of abuse and reflect a similar pattern of grievances.

*There are records, books, news articles, or television programs that document the abuses of the group/leader.

*Followers feel they can never be "good enough".

*The group/leader is always right.

*The group/leader is the exclusive means of knowing "truth" or receiving validation, no other process of discovery is really acceptable or credible.

Just because it has became socially acceptable, or is not perceived as a cult due to societal involvement, does not remove the cultish implications.

He does at that.

And then launches his childish attack on me, just because I posted a link about a church protecting a convicted pedophile, now murderer. It's all doing the Lord's work for funny-mentalists.

That's one of the "arguments" you'll get from that thing. Good comeback!

It just shows how little they really have.
