See? You're still doing it.
E=MC2 is man's understanding and limitations. If you think God is limited to the universe He created, you're fooking crazy.
This is God described in Revelations:
"Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns."
I know you think you're on to something, but you're not.
I can see you have no grasp of science, E=MC^2 works, it is proven to work and you actually use it in several different ways to post you denial of it – so hypocritical

Do you have any evidence that god creating anything? NOPE, what you have is belief that god created the universe and you let that believe limit you education. Belief is not evidence... get over yourself.

And more lies from you because I specifically quote Revelation 19:6 (KJV) note that “K J V”– it means King James Version and is the definitive babble from which most other modern English translations are adapted. I really do not give a toss about some cloned and bastardized NIV book that somehow seems to omit everything from the original book that offends the sensibilities of a certain group of godbots.

Here is a comparison between you cut down and bastardised babble and the KJV http://www.ecclesia.org/truth/m-m.html I hope it helps you relise how limited your religious education is.

Christians and Jews don't practice genital mutilation.
Are you really that thick or have you have never met a circumcised jew? Half the Jewish population have had their genitals mutilated. Oh wait a moment, perhaps you think that’s OK because they are men?
As I told butt crack a couple of posts ago, I suggest you google Eritrea and do a little research

Eritrea: Religious Distribution (2002) indicates that Christianity makes up 63% of the population with Islam making up 37%.

Eritrea: female genital mutilation of 35 to 39 year olds is 92.6% and of 15-19 year olds is 78.3%.

Do the maths

FGM is a cultural and tribal act and is not bounded by religion. I really do think you have been allowing the babble to interfere with reading those ‘learning’ books.

Your source is outdated if not wrong about religious identity..

"Mackie writes that FGM is found "only in or adjacent to Islamic groups."[107] There is no mention of it in the Quran. It is praised in several hadith (sayings attributed to Muhammad) as noble but not required, along with advice that the milder forms are kinder to women.[108] Although its origins are pre-Islamic, FGM became associated with Islam because of that religion's focus on female chastity and seclusion, according to Mackie.[109] In 2006 leading Islamic scholars called for an end to the practice, and in 2007 the Al-Azhar Supreme Council of Islamic Research in Cairo ruled that it had no basis in core Islamic law or any of its partial provisions.[110]"

Horus shit.
That list is false.
It is not written in Egyptian mythology that Horus was born to a virgin.
It is not written in Egyptian mythology that Horus was the "only begotten son of Osiris.".
Horus' mother was Isis, not Mari.
It is not written in Egyptian mythology that Horus was born in a cave and it is not written in the Bible that Jesus was born in a cave.
There is no Egyptian record of Horus being baptized.
Horus is not described as the "savior of humanity", his name literally means "lord of the sky".
You can find the writings of Horus in the following texts:
The Memphite Theology or Shabaqo Stone (generally dated as late as the New Kingdom, c. 1540-1070 BC)
The Mystery Play of the Succession
The Pyramid Texts (from the late Old Kingdom, c. 2575-2150 BC)
The Coffin Texts, especially Spell 148
The Great Osiris hymn in the Louvre
The Late Egyptian Contendings of Horus and Seth
The Metternich Stela and other cippus texts
The Ptolemaic Myth of Horus at Edfu
You can either do some research or stick to your atheist notion of Horus shit.
I already know which one you'll choose.
So you don’t actually know much about what happened outside you back yard do you?... Fair enough

It is not written in any mythology that jesus exited at all. In fact other than the babble there is absolutely no mention of him. Do you not allow other beliefs that same consideration as your personal belief? But of course the babble must be true because you believe the babble is true – right? Despite the FACT that there is no validatory evidence of jesus anywhere.

It is documented that "The birthday of Horus was annually celebrated, about December 25th." And "The Egyptians have consecrated up to this day the child-birth of a virgin and the nativity of her son, who is exposed in a 'crib' to the adoration of the people." – this was documented about 350 years before you god child was even a twinkle in Panteras eye... Research it.

Baptised... anointed... It is written that Horus was anointed by Anubis. It seems that the word baptised is just for the convenience of the hard of thinking.

Once again I am not bothered about your cut down, selective modern and bastardised version of the babble, some christian traditions (Greek orthodox for example) give that the “manger” was in a cave.

Horus was regarded as the conqueror of Seth and thus the saviour of humanity

Besides me not being enamoured by you cheap, modern clone of the babble I do not hold much faith in writings designed specifically to pander to delicate christian American sensibilities.

FYI, the civilisation that was ancient Egypt came before the JC character, it had been around for 3500+ years before jesus was even thought of and was more or less defunct by the time jc is claimed to have been born. When was that by the way?

I never said they did. I noted international law about occupied civilian areas.

The US government recognizes that Hamas uses human shields and targets civilians.

You still can't explain how Hamas rockets killed and hurt only Arabs, or that years of digging tunnels at the expense of over 160 Gazan children was totally futile.

I did.

Glad to see that atheisms 2 mainstays are still here and still spitting venom more toxic than their STIs which they get on a regular basis.
But then again.......perverts only get what they deserve.
Still, you are the only infidels who bother to try and argue their point.
Unlike the stooges of comrade bob of qf who just repeat the same one liners ad nauseum.

Are you really that stupid or are you backpedalling because you were stupid enough to open your mouth without putting your brain in gear? International law does not mention civilian areas as neutral areas, it is however extremely specific on UN property. Or perhaps you claim you saw it on Al Jazeera news, just like last time you fooked up and tried to blame it on someone else.

My only argument is that Israel bombed not one but two UN buildings and killed an 8 year old girl while under cease fire. That of course has lead people like buck to accuse me of terrorist sympathies and you to repeatedly spout irrelevant BS. I really could not give a toss about the other crap, Israel and Hamas have been at each other’s throats for almost 70 years of tit for tat killings, it isn’t going to change any time soon.

No you didn’t, you put it down to your god who in your deliberate ignorance you were not aware that also happens to be the muslim god too. What you laid as explanation is your own deliberate ignorance and I can assure you that your deliberate ignorance is no valid reason for killing each other.

But I can see where you get your anti humanitarian ideas from, the babble is full of such horrors in the name of your god

Did he do what he wanted when he created disease, birth defects, ebola and the like?

Not very smart for a God, I would expect the world he is alleged to create to be perfect rather than imperfect; but god does have a "bad hair " day every now and then I suppose.

After all... you're here aren't you?

Do you enjoy selling Jesus on the Internet and failing miserably?

I believe there's a term for that called flagellation.
Ask any Catholic... They will tell you all about them.

The more education a person has the less religiosity. I don't say this to be demeaning to you only that I think you do not understand science.

Science questions everything, it experiments, it relies on accurate results, science is never satisfied.

I will admit that it is possible for some people to be born with their brain 'hardwired' for a God... and logic/reason cannot not sway them. I believe they yearn for immortality.

I wonder why religious people like yourself bother to attend an atheist forum.

To what purpose does this serve?

Is it idle curiosity about atheism or a method to attack those who do not share your faith?

I consider myself agnostic and would never waste my time posting anything in any religious forum.
