Augustine and Aquinas both brown-nosed the butts of the popes in power by claiming that "god" ordained the killing of other humans as evil and wicked.

They were horrible men ... yet they are revered in the Catholic church as saints.

Atheism is a religion that has Charles Darwin as a god that they worship.

Darwinism, somewhat like global warming, is an unproved theory.

oh really? The Bible doesn't even say its the Bible.
Christ never said which Books are Biblical either.

And the fact that you say we added 7 books is irrelevant. Your opinion on sacred scripture is ... just that, your opinion.

Your ignorance is nothing short of spectacular. I have to ask you if you really believe what you say?
I could never take you and your cohorts seriously. My momma warned me about you fanatics when the born again movement began to become popular in the '80s with the ex drug addicted hippies. You guys are off the charts ignorant.
That is not to say the Good Lord doesn't give you graces when you pray, I believe God is Love and wouldn't turn his back on you just because you're scripturally a mess....but I gotta imagine Christ scratches His head when you guys come up with your silly scenarios on His Ministry as you frantically attempt to debunk His Church.

You've been repeatedly shown the truth Marge. What are you going to do, act like Old G and pretend you never heard it; come back next week and continue spewing the same garbage? You gotta start thinking about your soul. This is getting ridiculous watching y'all bounce off walls trying to hold together your doctrinal mess.

Top Ten Atheist Myths:

1. The universe created itself out of nothing.

2. There is no God.

3. Atheists have proven there is no God.

4. They misquote Jesus.(isn't that bizarre since they say they don't believe in Him?)

5. Atheists aren't amoral.

6. Atheists are charitable.

7. Only dunces believe in God.(when in fact very intelligent men and women outnumber the fools that don't believe in God)

8. Atheists are all brilliant.

9. People are basically good!(er...Adolph Hitler..ahem!)

10. There is no evidence of the supernatural.(open your eyes ye blind FOOLS!)

But at that time, in the middle of the seventeenth century, great things were astir in the world. Here and there in France and England and Italy rare men were thumbing their noses at almost everything that passed for knowledge.“We will no longer take Aristotle’s say-so, nor the Pope’s say-so,” said these rebels.“We will trust only the perpetually repeated observations of our own eyes and the careful weighings of our scales; we will listen to the answers experiments give us and no other answers!” So in England a few of these revolutionists started a society called The Invisible College, it had to be invisible because that man Cromwell might have hung them for plotters and heretics if he had heard of the strange questions they were trying to settle.
Cromwell. lol An outstanding example of tyranny.

What a crock! The church funded science and still does. Even Galileo continued his work funded by the church. Galileo was not right on all that he believed btw. He would have been fine had he not began mocking. He had many detractors amongst his peers as well and sorry but Luther and others did the same sort of thing, but Protestants wailed in the wind on many issues becoming more corrupt with little system of accountability and funding. This is pure rubbish. The church was open to facts and hypothesis, but not arrogance. It was open to a hypothesis and a greater understanding without contradicting or opening a new understanding of scripture. In his end years Galileo postured that scripture was not wrong, but the understanding of it not fully realized. This was the stance before and the Pope nor the church never made any kind of infallible decree. The Pope warned him and offered advice on how to proceed without angering his protractors. He chose to mock in arrogance. Not a good choice. It was a local panel which condemned statements and mockery of things not understood and seemingly placing scripture in error which it did not.

There are also quotes of several leading reformers who condemned certain scientific hypothesis. However that Science flourished after Luther is a complete myth. The church is, was and is today a leader in the field of science and the schools and funds to further it for the benefit of mankind. Some of the stuff you post is so out of context its unreal. I think you just like to hear yourself talk. A self educated ignormamous that chooses tidbits from unreliable sources that suits your agenda of railing against God without any semblence of itellect, but rather incomplete plethoras of ramblings, but you are not arrogant at all. lol Good Stuff June.

Yes sireee! God ordained the death penalty for evildoers!

I have been watching this Jodi Arias trial for example. That evil woman stabbed her lover 29 times and then shot him in the head! I say the death penalty by lethal injection is too good for her!

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Since the man of God is "thoroughly furnished" by all scripture, inspired of God, unto good works....what else is necessary????!!!! How can he be more "thoroughly furnished"????!!!!

"Amen my brother in Christ" coming from a Catholic is about as ludicrous as it gets.

The word Christ came from Judaism ... NOT Catholicism. Christ simply meant Messiah, and the Jews HAD their Messiah, and his name was NOT Jesus. His name was Jehovah.

Stop STEALING from the Jews!!!

No, no no! I say to Hell with those as Sacred Scripture tells us that deny Christ and that don't follow Him.

Jesus said, "Pick up your Cross and follow me."

He did not say "Pick up your Cross and I will follow you."

That's what you want after all. You want Christ to follow your desires, your needs, your lusts, etc.

Doesn't work that way sweetheart.

Well, let's just see what our Lord and God, Jesus Christ said about the Jews:

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered together thy children, as the hen doth gather her chickens under her wings, and thou wouldest not? Behold, you house shall be left to you, desolate. For I say to you, you shall not see me henceforth till you say: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."

Oh my goodness gracious June! You are ranting and railing about a house that has been left desolate (just like yours) until they can say "Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord!"

You are standing upon a sinking foundation. Come home to the ROCK!

You are a silly boy indeed! Galileo had to beg the pope to not kill him. He had to retract or be burned at the stake.

Whether his science was right or wrong was not the issue. He should have been allowed his opinion without the pope having power over him.

That type of tyranny would not be allowed today ... thanks to Luther and his group of equally power-hungry religious thugs.

The Incredible Book of Vatican Facts and Papal Curiosities … A treasury of Trivia, by Nino Lo Bello~ Published 1998.

John Paul II Gives Galileo a Second Chance.

The Vatican’s belated but sincere vindication of Galileo came in May 1983, when nearly 200 scientists, including 33 Nobel Laureates and 22 cardinals, attended an audience in the Apostolic Palace’s Sala Regia, Pope John Paul II—speaking in French—told the representatives of Science for Peace that the Catholic Church had erred in condemning Galileo 350 years ago. He said that the Church’s seventeenth-century scientific position came from culturally influenced readings of the Bible.

The dust has finally settled on the drama, centuries after Galileo's condemnation brought to the fore the issue of intellectual freedom under Roman Catholic authority. But there remains one more final footnote to Galileo's posthumous reconciliation: Perhaps typical of the Curia's way of doing things is that the Vatican's denunciation of Copernican theory was withdrawn as far back as 1835--whereas Galileo's conviction stuck until just recently.

Although he could have found sanctuary in the Republic of Venice, Galileo—already 70, sick, and infirm—went to the Eternal City to defend his ideas. The Holy Office, which had been percolating a long time over the Florentine’s sins, argued that Galileo’s new book had violated his promise to keep silent and had advocated Copernicanism. Sustaining two days of rigorous interrogation, much of it under the threat of torture and the fear of being burned at the stake as a heretic, Galileo fell to his knees, recanted his theory, and begged the mercy of the seven who were grilling him mercilessly.

Because of his abject public renunciation, the scholarly giant was not ordered to the stake. Instead he was sentenced to life imprisonment that was commuted on the spot, at Pope Urban’s request, to house arrest in Florence (he was also given permission to visit his other home in Siena). Even while under house arrest, Galileo wrote a most poignant letter to the Holy Office in which he pleaded his innocence, adding “…I am in your hand. You may do as you please….”
