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.

I am passionate about life and fascinated with religious loony tunes - especially the ones that haunt atheist forums.
They are unintentionally hilarious and worthy of a good belly laugh at times.
I must consult my BuyBull for inspiration :)
Child Abuse?
"Happy the one who takes and dashes
Your little ones against the rock!"
-- Psalm 137.9.
Did Jesus lie or was it John?
" Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father."
--John 14.12
Ignorant or lying angel?
"The Lord God shall give him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever and of his kingdom there shall be no end." – Luke 1.32.33.
Hmm. Did Jesus ever get to reign over the house of Jacob?
Obedient slaves are righteous
"Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves ... obedience leads to righteousness?"
– Romans 6.16.
Simple-minded
"I am jealous over you ... I fear your minds be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."
– 2 Corinthians 11.2-3.
"I form the light, and create darkness. I make peace, and create EVIL. I the LORD do all these things."
– Isaiah 45.7.
Puerile God
"If ye will not give glory unto my name saith the LORD ... I will spread dung upon your faces."
– Malachi 2.2,3.
Making "every thought captive."
"For the weapons of our warfare are casting down imaginations ... and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ."
– St Paul, 2 Corinthians 10.4,5.
The cost to humanity of fifteen centuries of Christian savagery – of hundreds of millions of lives brutalised and truncated, sacrificed to war, torture, pogrom, burning, pestilence and plague – is incalculable.
Christianity is the worst disaster in human history.
You are way too simple minded to be an intellectual or a scholar. Such is revealed in your giggles and rushes to be certain of things.

However, if it makes you feel intelligent, that's fine. It entertains those that aren't so simple minded. You are no threat to their world, really. Just an entertaining diversion.

When read by ignorant morons like you, yes.
It's people like you that misread the Bible. It's people like you that started the Crusades.
Study the Bible, son. Don't just read it.
I did and you have not RR.

Want to test my knowledge vs yours of the OT or NT?
Pick ANY verse and I will find one that contradicts yours.

Most atheists have actually taken the time to read the stupid book you find so compelling.

What is there to misread?

Among God's curses on people who won't obey his commandments is the following: "And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee." (Deuteronomy 28:53)

Here we go again. Disgusting!

Since the Israelites were not supposed to "work" on the Sabbath day, a man who was caught picking up sticks (presumably for firewood, but who cares?) was ordered directly by God to be stoned to death.(Numbers 15:33-36) For another infraction there was another slaughter. "And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun." (Numbers 25:4) Heads. More heads. But not in baskets this time. I guess the severed heads were hung up on tree branches or something.(I may be ill.)

If a son is stubborn, rebellious, a glutton and a drunkard he shall be stoned to death.(Deuteronomy 21:20-21) "Witches" are to be stoned to death.(Leviticus 20:27) So witches really do exist - according to the Bible. Homosexuals must be murdered.(Leviticus 20:13) and (Romans 1:26¬32) You should beat your children with rods.(Proverbs 23:13,14) A king offers his oldest son as a "burnt offering." (2 Kings 3:27)

Two men who had displeased God were buried alive with their wives and little children.(Numbers 16:27-33) Men who plotted against Daniel are thrown into a lions' den along with their wives and children. The lions "broke all their bones in pieces." (Dan 6:24)

Whether as an allegory or not, a disgusting story is told about raping a woman to death: " The man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go." (Judges 19:25) Her "lord" finds her dead in the morning. "And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces." (Judges 19:29)

Would you read this story to your 12-year-old?

If a virgin is raped, the rapist must pay the now non-virginal girl's father "fifty shekels" and the girl must marry her rapist. So says the Bible.(Deuteronomy 22:28, 29) The daughter of any priest, who "profanes" him by being a whore, "shall be burnt with fire." (Leviticus 21:9)

The Bible is obsessed with hymens and whores. Not at all coincidentally, the Bible makes it seem like a woman can be a "whore" or lose her hymen, all by herself. Wicked woman! However, the usual hymen/whoring activities include men, 100% of the time.

Lot's two virginal daughters get him drunk and each sleeps with him to "preserve seed" of their father. No disapproval of the drunkenness and incest is even hinted at.(Genesis 19:32)

Jesus tells a parable about 10 virgins marrying the same groom on the same night.

He utters not one word of condemnation about such an obscene situation, but merely goes on about the lamps and the oil.

(Matthew 25) Women must keep silent and learn only from their husbands.(1 Corinthians 14:34,35) Women must "submit" to their husbands.(1 Timothy 2:11,12) Does that include wife-beaters? It appears to be all-inclusive. Women must peak to their husbands in fear.(1 Peter 3:1-7)

It's the 21st century... you know it is a myth.

Might as well make an observation about global warming, sicence models, and probabilities.

They have all these earthquake and weather models? Based upon observations of thingies for a while?

All of those painstaking and deliberate calculations based upon a geophysical history that has actually been pretty mild. Except for this surge in global climate the last 100 years.

Wellll....let me tell you how things work when you have an energy surge, such as that heat, starts to working. It accelerates some of those geophysical processes. Your probabilities and assumptions change. You have the whole earth mass getting a wave built in it. Mass in motion. Gets a little tricky anticipating how it affects the whole.

One thing about heat that anyone can notice, you don't have to be a physics graduate. It expands things. You've seen cracks in the road from too much sun? Multiply that effect globally.

One good tidal force from the moon and a bit of water can trigger some nice earthquakes. Just that teensy weensy little extra.

All that heat has to go somewhere, and when it does it rearranges things. Sometimes in large ways. The crust is less than 1/100th of the radius of the earth. Any extra heat is not going to be conducted to the core, it is going to work on the crust structure. Millimeters and inches add up. The crust is a ring on the circumference. It will open more at the top than the bottom.

If you live someplace where you can expect it eventually, you can expect it to occur faster.

There are other places in the country that will see some activity in the not very distant future.

I'm not saying everyone in California should keep a rope tied to the east of the fault lines handy. But would appreciate it if you pushed your politicians closer to the coast, and keep them there.

Just messing with you Californians.:-)

"human like form" would be appropriate. Which isn't to say that is God's form, not at all. God appeared in a human like form so Abram would understand.
Then when God is NOT posing as a human, what form is he in? And how do you know? In order for you to KNOW that God's form is NOT always a human one, then you must KNOW what his alternate form or forms are. Otherwise it would be entirely logical to conclude that God is ALWAYS in a human form!!!

You seem to have this perception of separateness from the rest of the universe. Including other humans.

Take the human species. Look at them closely physically and you will notice something. They all have essentially the same DNA. All of the individuals. They tend to collect in groups, though.

Take a rutabaga and examine it closely. It's cells also have essentially the same DNA. But it is one plant. Usually along many others just like it in the same field.
