If there is one thing certain, the truth will not be caught once and for all in a net of words alone, nor does it like to be imprisoned in theory; it is much too fond of its liberty.

Recently while conversing with another woman about religion, her defense was that those in churches give each other "support." I agreed, and when I asked her if what they teach within the church is based on truth, she informed me that "truth" comes in many layers.

That was news to me, as I always thought that only lies came in layers.

I don't celebrate Christmas, and yet I am not at all offended by other people celebrating Christmas ... as long as they keep their baubles off of government property.
That smacks of Christian favoritism, as no other religion is allowed that statement of "We are special!"
And no Atheists are allowed to put banners on government property that make the statement that we don't believe in celebrating the birth of a savior, because we don't believe in a supposed savior.
Tolerance is NOT your aim at all. You have a very haughty attitude that Christians ought to be special on earth AND in the hereafter.

In order to allow truth to play its role, we must wait until we die to find out if life continues, or if death of the physical body is the end of awareness.

Anyone who has the temerity to speak of “truth” usually finds that he is performing verbal dances around the word truth, rather than letting truth perform for itself.

Especially when I wish for peace for "everyone" if in turn there just should happen to be an afterlife.

It takes away that "SPECIAL" self-centered dogma from religion. And without people believing that the gods find them irresistible and perceive others as putrid ... what profit is their in staying IN such a group-setting of religion?

No emotional profit whatsoever.

June does this ever so often.....think she has some supporting information, but in fact, it is really just a ruse to make herself look good.
I still can't understand how it took her so many decades to speak out against something she states as: "I never believed".
Remember - she's only been a "non-Christian" for only about 4 years, and IMO - appears to be limited in her "Agnostic" view, except for a couple fo books that contain quotes from others.
I was alive when many of these religions were created. From Wicca and (American) Druidism to "Reborn" and the latest incarnation of "fundamentalism and Literalism" Christian cults.

As long as you tell people what they want to hear, you can invent a religion. Been that way for thousands of years.

No difference at all.
To most Christians, the word Christ and the word Jesus are interchangeable.
Note how this author uses the word "Christ" as meaning Jesus.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>
The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors … Christianity before Christ, by Kersey Graves … first published in 1875.
All History ignores Him.
The fact that Christ finds no place in the history of the era in which he lived,—that not one event of his life is recorded by anybody but his own interested and prejudiced biographers,—settles the conclusion, beyond cavil or criticism, that the godlike achievements ascribed to him are naught but fable or fiction.
Of course so-called "Christians" think this, erroneously of course. I can see and understand why you would play this card.

"Jesus" - a man who lived and taught a form of philosophy
"Christ" - a divine entity that people applied to Jesus the man, who they FEEL or HAV FAITH that he rose in bodily form from the dead.

Distinct differences.

I can't help it if the links don't work. It often happens to other people, and I don't believe that "they" are trying to deceive.
Then maybe you shouldn't be like other people, and verify their veracity before presenting them as support.

DOH!!

Them not working would have been your first guess that they were not valid.

According to their magic book, you are correct:

"You will die like all mortal creatures." The Hebrew word for animal and soul is nephesh. A "soul" is simply a living creature. Not special to humans.

The Old Testament never prophesied that a Jew would come to earth to love only a group of people who took the title of Christian. I suggest that the Jewish theologians "made double-sure" that that didn't occur.

Of course it depends on which meanings people take to and from the words.

Many in religion don't like to believe that non-human animals HAVE souls that attach to their god or gods, as they desire to believe their worth is far above the worth of other animals and, as we know ... even above other "human" animals.

Christians at one time were so arrogant as to believe that those of the black race and the Native Indians didn't HAVE souls, as the Christians compared them to other animals that they also believed didn't have or deserve to have souls.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda argued that, during the Valladolid controversy in the middle of the 16th century, the Native Americans were natural slaves because they had no souls.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism

The idea of slavery as an "equal-opportunity employer" was denounced with the introduction of Christian theory in the West. Maintaining that Africans were "subhuman" was the only loophole in the then accepted law that "men are created equal" that would allow for the sustenance of the Triangular Trade.
