Christians did not attain that number by including or excluding anyone. The number is arrived at by simply counting those calling themselves "christian".

You are a blithering idiot.

Ironically, you're both wrong.

They did include all the groups of christians in the count, because they are christian, but all the churches include members who have left in all their counts as well, so as to dishonestly inflate their numbers for tax purposes.

Nobody cares about this philosopher one way or the other fatass. Your right wing nut job site read the back cover of his book and made up this grandiose article.

You probably found that from the front page of nationalpost where they gush about how amazing George W. Bush was as president right fatty?

Better luck next time and do try to learn to eat those green leafy vegetable.

Atheist dissent must be quashed...by personal attack if necessary.

Seems like religion.

They attained that number by indoctrinating weak minded people like you.

That's approximately what I said.

You will admit, will you not, that many Fundamentalist Protestants do not consider some of those groups to be "real" Christians?

It does. Back in those days, nothing went to waste - not even poop.

Dung was used when firewood was scarce.

Nothing in that passage stated firewood was scarce. Ezekiel run around naked screaming like an idiot and was to have people take a dump on the ground in front of him so he could use their turds to cook his food.

Lol! Yahweh your god is wacky like that!

Later he enjoyed the screams and smells of Jephthah's daughter being roasted alive in his honor.

Ohhhh that silly ole Yahweh! Oops he did it again!

Lmfao!

The truth of the matter is that Christians don't trust anyone who's not in their own particular cult - and they're unsure of the doctrinal purity of the guy in the next pew.
What it comes down to is two billion cults-of-one.
When you want to inflate your numbers, you include everyone! Even if you believe they are damned to Hell and you wouldn't let your child play with their children.

Who is so stupid that they can not see through that?

Oops, I should have read buck's response first.

that was not to me, but I have to admit to being not knowledgeable about what you mean by your phrase in the green box. the two long words. please explain your meaning and intent.
I think I am friendly toward you at least because of your criticism of folks I do not respect, but I think you may be wasting time with them and should be spending it out enjoying real spring instead, which is my next thing to do. just stopped by the library book sale - got the book by Marcia clark on OJ to see whether I can stick by my opposition to the death penalty, with a preference for seeing almost everyone however bad stuck with a no-pardon life sentence. the brain study program should be able to study what makes people do some of these awful things.
later maybe some folks will figure out more about why people have to believe such horrid things as many of them do. especially those who worship an evil god and justify their own cruel behavior, either by claiming they were commanded to do it, or by claiming their God will forgive them if they only confess a belief in some total nonsense. I do not really believe in free will.

No, not really.

But there's a lot of ways-of-life that the ancients did that none of us would wanna do.

So. It doesn't have to. You & Impotent love taking scripture out of context, that way you can ridicule it, or at least you think you can. You haven't learned anything about the bible except how to say "I've read it cover to cover!"

That's the whole point of studying the bible, so we don't make fools out of ourselves like you with your retarded posts.

BBQ briquettes have a good flavor when burnt, crap doesn't. The flavor of what you cook something with is absorbed by the food, so, you'd be eating crap if the food was cooked over burning crap.

Ironically, everything can be a delicacy to someone so I don't knock that part at all, meh, coffee from goat's poop is considered a modern delicacy.

I agree. But they didn't have briquettes 4,000 years ago. They had crap. Cow poop has several uses, one of which is a "briquette".

I know. And I've water tastes better than warm water. But in those days they didn't have ice....

They has to work with what they had.

Coffee from goat poop?!

.....googles.....

Yup. "Kopi Luwak coffee".

Yuck.

But this whole conversation goes back to Impotent misjudging a Scripture, a trait that you atheists seem to attribute to a lot.

But it is commanded by your god Yahweh! Maybe you can napkin off the turds from that Ezekiel bread.

And for your ancient people comment? Yes those people back then prayed and chanted believing some desert deity was judging them for their belief! Isn't that ridiculous in today's day and age?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

I got a $5000 bet that says I would score higher than you on a biblical knowledge test.

Care to take me up on it? After all you have Jesus' help to guide you to an easy victory right?

You do not study the bible, you study an apologetic's guide on it.
