Why do you think Christians don't learn anything else? You accuse us of being lazy in our research, and your own research is deplorable on Christians and how they further their studied!?<quoted text>
I rail against Christianity, not necessarily Christians. Christianity has a doctrine and a history deserving of harsh ridicule and condemnation.
Look at what Christianity did to you. You aren't able to learn anything that contradicts your programming. I learn new things everyday, and change my mind often in response to better information coming in. My morality and ethics continue to improve as I learn more about the world and humanity. Your worldview was born thousands of years ago out of ignorant tribalism.
There is nothing in the Bible or in the behavior of Christians that suggests a link to a deity. It's a religion. People in religions believe their religions. There are many religions. If all those people believe just like you do, what sets you apart? Do you believe they are being deceived or deluded? Could that not happen to you? Are you immune to being deceived?
There is much in the Bible that links us to our Deity, as you call HIM, and much only those who comprehend the true values of these words will understand them. It is not a Novel, where a story line runs straight through the middle and it all makes perfect sense.
Think about some stuff; GOD told us HE grieves at our evil thoughts, intents and actions, and obviously HE tried to stamp it out. There are some issues here of course, because it is very plain that evil is rampant, on Earth today.
However, thinking about things, one can see that slowly but surely things are happening; more and more people are being incarcerated for more than 1 lifetime, so no hope of getting out, and the evil are herding themselves together. Some are so keen to be segregated, they have killer gang numbers tabooed all over themselves.
We have capital punishment in the world today; trying to rid the world of evil, and our history is deplorable. Blame GOD for the killings of your worst criminals today without a blink of the eye or thank your Government?
Many laugh and have laughed at the Muslims killing themselves off; how long can an army last if their recruits kill themselves? But these are only those that call themselves Muslims but are not Muslims, according to the Muslims, and all they want to do is live in Peace. With Christians and Jews. And vice versa......
