Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

If your gonna dish out ridiculous insults like this, you should be prepared to take the comparability light slights he has been directing towards you.
The truth is I am TOTALLY and I mean TOTALLY against the death penalty.

I don’t believe in pre tribulation rapture as some claim. It’s not in the bible anywhere.

You are actually fulfilling some of the biblical prophecy with your question.
2 Peter 3:3, 4
3.“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
Yes, Jesus was talking to his disciples in a future tense. He was foretelling of what was to come. Not in their lifetimes but in the lifetime of the end times.
Are we in the end times? I think the end times covers several decades. One of the key factors in the return of Jesus Christ will be the Anti Christ. When the Anti Christ comes on the scene the clock will be running for Christ’s return.
The Anti Christ has not came on the scene yet. We are still awaiting his appearance. He is going to be a problem solver and a world leader. Most likely from one of the countries in Europe.
Harold Camping is an idiot. The bible clearly says no man knows the day or hour of Christ return.
Of course I'm fulfilling a prophecy, because how hard is it to predict that people would criticize a claim as ridiculous as the rapture? Truly, only a deity could have predicted that someone would look at this stuff in disbelief.

How do you know that Jesus was talking in the future tense? I mean, obviously that's what you have to believe for your logic to remain consistent, your belief system would fall apart if you couldn't convince yourself that he was speaking to future generations, but how do you know? Where does it specifically state that he was speaking to the future, and that he was not doing what it appears he was doing, which is telling his followers that he will come back for them before they die?

Do you know how long people have been saying we are in the end times? How many generations have thought that they would be the lucky few that got to experience the return of jesus? How many people have been accused of being the antichrist? For some people, obama is the antichrist, for some it was hitler, for others it has been whoever fit the bill at the time. Prophecy is intentionally vague so as to allow endless interpretations and re-interpretations, so that some claims can be called hits and the ones that appear to miss can be re appropriated to some other event or some other time to mean something else entirely.

Also, please do not say that you know he was talking to the future because the rapture hasn't happened yet.

Blacks were called a demeaning name and it is the notorious “N” word. It was a slang word meant to degrade and humiliate blacks as if they were less than human. The same was for any minority including the American Indian.
This is why your partner in crime calls Christians “Godbots,” and other demented names. He is a bigot plain and simple. It’s open season so he thinks here on Topix. He will get some respect when he ceases and desist his open bigotry.
I don’t hate atheist. My father was an atheist. He wasn’t a piece of sh** like a few are here on topix. I do hate bigots including the atheist who openly practice their craft of bigotry here on this topix channel.
I do not call all Christians godbots. I reserve that distinction for people like you:-

godbot

GODBOT:(noun) someone programmed from birth to follow religious leaders' every wish; often indoctrinated in Christian fellowships closed off to free thinkers. Extremely dangerous when church leaders use the GodBots to harm other non-GodBots. GODBOTIC (verb) used to describe the hateful actions perpetuated by Christian people who won't listen to reason or logic.(thanks, Anonymous at Datalounge, whoever you are)

I never said it was accidental, my point is that it is really not a big deal and it is a little ridiculous for you to get all upset over it.

Also, it is a little bit ridiculous for you to compare the comparatively mild godbot to the n word, and it trivializes the power of the latter.

My "partner in crime?" I may agree with some of what he says, and we may share a certain viewpoint, but it's not like we're ganging up on you.

Also, you have to understand that you also take part in some of the behavior that you accuse him of. I don't feel like searching out all of your posts, but you literally *just* made a claim that atheists would support and thoroughly enjoy the death penalty if it only applied to christians. Is that not bigotry? I am not petty enough to be offended by what some random guy says on the internet, but the comment itself is an offensive one - insinuating that all atheists are blood thirsty assholes who would just love to see a bunch of christians die. Do you not remember writing that?

Considering that your religion teaches how to keep slaves, it would be wise not to bring up the obvious racial point to avoid your embarrassment.

Calling someone a godbot is not equivalent to calling a black person the n word. When you've had the silver spoon taken out of your mouth maybe you'd realise how foolish your home schooling has been...

There is nothing to indicate he was. You only can come to that conclusion by saying, well he royally screwed up errrr but Jesus was perfect dahurrrr it it it so it must have been about future generations! Ya that's the ticket!!

Here is the answer you seem to miss. Jesus was talking to his disciples but he was speaking prophetically to the generation in the end times. Again for about the third time.
In the English language, there are three basic tenses: past, present and future. This is common knowledge among all educated writers of the English language. Jesus was talking in future tense.
Now am I going to have to keep repeating the same answer over and over or are you going to capture what I’m telling you.

Not to keep raining on your parade but aaaah it’s been more than a few minutes. Just a piece of friendly advice. You might want to consider crossing over to the sane and try writing something coherent.
I could have sworn, that I did credit the author on that piece. Didn't I? He is not an atheist, you know. He is though, incredibly cognizant of how our political system is operated, and response to his views are not mandatory, nor even expected.

My commentaries on the other hand are usually,very sane and coherent views, of the very insane and incoherent buybull, and those I do expect commentary on.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, damn you have divorced yourself from reality, with that one.

It does though, make me realize that all those hints that you drop, as to your mental state, being so far from Ok, is real. You sir are fractured. And, you are looking like something the authorities, maybe should be paying heed to. You are not all together, all together.

Bullshit. jesus is talking to his boys and telling them what they will see. He never changes tense, no matter how much you cry and stomp your feet.

If what you say were true, somewhere your jesus would have said something like, the future generate will see this and that, but he does not. He says, you disciple will see this and that.

I know that you realize this, but trolling is the only attention you get. I hope you have enjoyed my attention!

Sweet love, your believing that you are beating me is indicative of your emotional issues.
As is what you consider coherent.
You rant a lot. Nothing with any scientific logic to it, just emotional rants with scientific sounding terms thrown in for effect.
One day, if you should wake up in a more settled and lucid state, force yourself to go back and review your past posts. It is best if you go back far enough so that you have forgotten what you wrote. Say a couple of days or so. Look at them with a fresh pair of eyes, so to speak. Perhaps then you will see what I refer to.
I still love you, darling. So does Jesus.
There you go again with the emotion crap, I hope it makes you feel better to lie for your god. You do realise that the christian faith teaches that satan is the father of lies, you lying can only mean one thing, you are a secret satan worshiper lying for your god. You really bust be psychotic if you believe that, was it your god satan who told you, that would fit the diagnosis

You really would not understand scientific logic if it sat on you face and smothered you. Pseudo science and wet god dreams do not count

Honey, I don’t forget what I wrote, unlike you who changes his dream every couple of weeks.

You love me? Symptom of your psychosis, see your doctor. Jesus? No such person, perhaps you mean Judas of the Sicari, a well known terrorist and murderer who seems to be the role model and mini god you people base you lives on. P.S. Look up Julius Pantera, even the Tenahk says that he was the father of your myth
