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.

Where in that post was there an indication of me getting angry?

There wasn't one.

Someone disagrees with you about your silly book and you think they're getting "mad".

Get a clue, RR.

LOL, What a truly sick and twisted notion, I can't help feeling sorry for the mental defectives that believe the crap, but the ones that would wish something so horrible on anyone fills me with revulsion and disgust. Those same people are the best advertisement for not getting involved with any institution where such vile people congregate.

I'm not much into horror movies, unless you count “Alien” and its successors... so, sorry.
Here are a few non-horror movies I've watched in the last month or so. Not necessarily favorites... just ones springing to mind... trying to stick with whatchya said ya like.
Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010)
Goofy comedy.. a hack'n'slash parody. A bunch of dumb college kids go for a weekend in the woods and severely misjudge a couple of idiot, but lovable, rednecks.
The Baytown Outlaws (2012)
The bad guys are bad. The good guys are worse. You'll love 'em all.
Deja Vu (2006)
Pretty good time travel flic... IMO. It has a “cohesive” story.
Lawless (2012)
Crime drama about moonshiners and revenuers... sorta “gangstery”.
Savages (2012)
Another crime drama... about marijuana and money. Plenty of action.
Old westerns ya say! How many Clint Eastwood movies have you seen? The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976) is a must see. That one brought the western back in a day when it was dead!
Oh! History...
Agora (2009)...and... The New World (2005).
What have you seen lately?
I'm not a fan of alien! I said I DON'T really like other horror movies, i just really like saw.

I haven't seen the first two, savages or agora. The first one sounds weird!

Any famous western film, u can bet i seen it!

I seen loads it's hard to keep track.

I watched the new sherlock holmes film, that was really good!

Make one person today that you think is scientifically 1800 years ahead of their time.
And.......GO!
There you go again.

You said we (today) aren't worthy of Aristarchus (2300 years ago)... and are now asking for the name of a modern person who's 1800 years ahead of our time.

Get your crap in order before hitting me with it!

Last of the Mohicans.

Not a western, exactly. But the music and the scenery, and some good acting, makes it worthwhile. This is near the end of the movie.

It's a funny video and nothing he said was wrong. When I was a Christian that show would have offended me and I am being totally honest.

Stop stalling present your case for this god of yours.

Just the facts please and stop cowering from this.

Some something or someone touched you on the head while you were most likely on your knees.. Ahem.. And this whatever said he is with Me.. Not I am with you? Didn't you just show it was a self made delusion. Otherwise that makes no sense whatsoever.

How did you know it was god making this nonsensical statement and not just the man you finished off? Or Bigfoot? Or a space alien? Maybe a leprechaun? Maybe it was the great bear spirit? It's so vague and nonsensical any of those options would be viable.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
<quoted text>No, for thinking he nailed it.

He condensed a 4 hour show into a 4 minute, highly edited video.

Not very honest, now is he?

[QUOTE] Anyways stop avoiding my question and present this case of yours backing up your assertion there is a god. "

Perhaps you don't quote understand what assertion means...

[QUOTE] Also where did god touch you and what did he say? "



He touched me on the head.

He said, "He's with me."

[QUOTE] You keep running from this we notice.

"

Running?

I've answered it. Like 5 times already.

You're powers of noticing things suck.

Tacitus a roman imperial would never call Jesus the messiah or the Christ. It's insane to even suggest that hence we know it has to be a forgery which first appeared in the year 1600.

<quoted text>Facts:

Josephus was a Jewish historian.
Tacitus was a Roman historian who would have no benefit from not telling the truth.
Both these men, as well as others, can be used to back up the historical accuracy of the Bible.

There are more than 3,200 verses with fulfilled prophecy either within the Bible itself or since the Bible was written. But there are still more than 3,100 verses with unfulfilled prophecies.

The Bible was written over a 1600 year period by approximately 40 men. The time of the writing was from 1500 BC to AD 100.

There are plenty of facts in the Bible. You just chose to play stupid.

That is merely your apologetic assertion to try to make it all better. Do show proof for this assertion.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
<quoted text>LOL, you're such a doofus.

The laws of Leviticus are not recorded so that all can follow.

They were recorded so that we would understand how cruel and barbaric they were. So we would not repeat their mistakes.

Again, the laws of Leviticus are meant fur the Levites. Technically, the ancient Levites.

Do try harder.

Your cherry picking doesn't impress anyone.

See if you can get a copy of Cowboys and Aliens with Daniel Craig.

The animated Rango is different, too.

True. Jesus failed to achieve any of the meaningful messiah prophecies.

Okay, concedo - how many prophecies are contained in the "more than 31,000 verses"?

Erm, according to Biblical prophecy, your Jesus was NOT the Messiah.

It's been a while... but, I remember liking that.

The name reminds me of another I like...

The Last of the Dogmen (1995).

That one's in my top 10 and always will be.
