The one thing that most Atheists and Religious fail to do is to just be quiet.

The most irksome thing is to have to endure the constant noise that many of these passionate professing nutters utter.

How about just keeping your beliefs or lack there of to yourself?

People in general have their own ideas and if they wish to know another point of view, they can read about other religions and philosophies.

Meditation and quiet reflection do much more good than all this fervent desperate spouting that goes on in churches, and on soap boxes.

If you sit quietly and just let your thoughts get quiet, the truth will come to you.

I guess you flunked out of learning at an early age

You (KiMare) asked me that same question 3 months ago and it was the answer I gave that caused you to loose it and rant for over 2 months

No ones problem but your own if you are too stupid to think out of the tiny circle you impose on yourself

Oh honey, you seem proud that you are a liar and obnoxious and living a life of obfuscation because you cannot think clearly.

You are thrilled that you base your arguments on hearsay and supermarket hate tabloids rather then fact, that you are a known xenophobic and a misogynous welsh carrot (look it up)

As to whether you were sacked from your position at church for sticking you hand in women’s panties while they were still wearing them – any pervert like that, if they are not serving time in gaol should be remembered for the safety of every women.

I took your advice and sat quietly... For some odd reason 'truth' did not appear?

Pleased to find this elusive "truth" that you are referring to.

Personally, in this forum I think the 'truth' is gods do not exist. Religions with all the rituals and clothing etc. were all created by man for man.

Religion can't survive without censorship. Any request for censorship, like yours, should be treated with great suspicion.

He desperately avoids all questions. I have come to the conclusion that he’s not too bright in the old thinking department. Could be senile dementia or simply ignorance (deliberate or natural)

Ahh the irony of hypocrisy

Ahh well you see the whole point of a discussion forum is not to keep quiet

Of course, now you have had your say then you can always go to a different thread that suites your sensibilities more, or better still turn off your computer.

It seems you have all the answers, so maybe that is your truth.

Why are you not content with that?

What did I say that refers to censorship? How is quiet meditation censorship?

Why does anything like "religion" need to be called as such or even defined at all.

Does a butterfly need to be called a butterfly to exist?

A butterfly will be as beautiful and magical and mysterious whether or not it has a name.

The same is true for the true nature of the Universe.

Whatever is true and real cannot change even if we lowly humans do not ascribe any words to define it.

In fact, our words simply do not do the magnificence any justice at all.

Even very early in religious history, God was apparently not keen on humans being able to utter his name. MIT was humans who had the desire to know God's name.

Ever since then, it has been taken in vain.

The more fervent and beseeching people are with the name of God, the worse of a mockery they make of God.

The more human qualities that people try to attach to God, the more of a division people will put between themselves and God.

We all need to take a step back and rethink this madness.

It is clearly not working, otherwise we would not all be here trying to hash this all out.

We are not living a more peaceful existence since religion started. It has actually created more discord and distress for human beings.

Nothing gets resolved or fixed because of religion.

We need a new way of thinking about our existence and our place in the Universe.

Or maybe we should just stop thinking.

Could not get any worse.

Completely rational and based entirely of you stupidity, lies, xenophobia and misogyny as defined by your own posts, therefore not libel either.

As to whether you were sacked for interfering in women’s panties, I have already stated that is what I have heard on this very thread, it may or may not be true but it is common knowledge and youi have never denied it.

That makes it hearsay.

The only reason you repeat it is to assault the character of someone you have no rational rebuttle for.

Pure troll behavior. In essence, you make my case with such behavior.

But contrary to your claim, not liable

Lots of rebuttal that you have found out to your displeasure

And of course pot kettle black comes to mind, I was not the one accusing me of made up BS and lies, that was you and it was not even hearsay, it was just verbal garbage because you had nothing to add, that was you so may I ask, project much?

I believe it takes a lot of faith to believe religion requires censorship in the face of the mounting evidence that it gets along fine without it.
