Prove there's a god.

It's theists you need to worry about. The overwhelming number of brutal, murderous regimes in history have been theistic. This is what theists do: "Children were especially chosen to be sacrificed to Tlaloc, the rain god. The Aztecs believed that the tears of new-born or very young children could ensure rain." Theists also hold the record for pulling out the most beating hearts. To my knowledge, only theist have ever killed every single member of a civilization. Theists mercilessly slaughtered everyone in Jericho but one family and all of the people of Makkedah, Libnah, Gezer, Eglon, and Hebron Theists take their murderous ways on the road, like the Huns, the Mongol hordes, the Crusaders and conquistadores did. Theists will burn you alive, and subject you to torture devices like the rack, the pear and the iron maiden. We can only imagine how brutal and vicious the Neanderthals were, and yes, they were theists.  (40 min ago | post #775730)

I've got a hypothetical question for you that you've been avoiding for weeks: If a sadistic god built a hell and stocked it with the souls of billions of people that it kept alive just to torture them for eternity, were real, and if mankind had the ability to free those suffering souls by slitting the sadistic god's throat from ear to ear, wouldn't that be the highest moral good possible and the greatest act of love ever?  (1 hr ago | post #775720)

Hope you enjoy your time on the thread, Joyful- The love you will receive is the love you've shown, you passive-aggressive , narcissistic, dimwitted cow pie. Did you think that your posting experience should be more comfortable than that which you would afford others? If so, think again, oh wit of abject dimness, oh ye demon of perpetual darkness. How's the home schooling coming, cow pie? Are the spawn beginning to think like their mother? Have you taught the one that wants to be a veterinarian to ask nicely if the customer would also like fries? That will be more useful than bible stories.  (6 hrs ago | post #775643)

Us"? Nobody listens to you. You are considered a moron by your skeptic audience, as well as by half of the Christians. Even Jesus considers you an idiot. He told me so. Get a real job and support your spawn.  (6 hrs ago | post #775640)

Thank you, little sister. You and Juice have been my source of all things Aussie. Here's what I've learned on Topix: Chooks - chickens Galahs - An endearing term for a fool or silly person from a particularly noisy parrot colored pink and gray. Goanna - any of several Australian monitor lizards Salties – saltwater crocodiles in Australia Ockerism - the conduct or actions that are characteristic of an Australian oaf known as an ocker Hooroo - a distinctively Australian way of saying “goodbye” Banana Bender - a person from Queensland Cockies – people from New South Wales, cockroaches, or cockatoos Mexicans - people from Victoria because they live south of the border. Westies - colloquial term used in Australian English to stereotypically describe residents of the Greater Western Sydney and the western suburbs of Melbourne. An alternative term bogan has a similar definition but does not refer to a geographical area. Bogans - Australian slang, usually pejorative or self-deprecating, for a person with an unsophisticated background, or whose speech, clothing, attitude and behaviour exemplify a lack of manners and education  (6 hrs ago | post #775635)

You must have missed this the lat four times it was posted to you Ghost Writer 2 U wrote: Are we willing to admit the problem can be with our perception? The honest Christian MUST admit this is possible and even probable to an extent. To maintain his or her atheism, the atheist CANNOT afford to admit the problem might be with their perception. Once admitted, atheism then becomes untenable. IANS wrote: The perceptual problem is with the theist. Either you're seeing something that isn't there, like people looking at a mirage, or were not seeing something that is there, like the color-blind. I know a method that distinguishes between the two. Do you? If not, would you like to?  (7 hrs ago | post #775632)

Not in my experience. If the church chooses to deviate from the bible, that becomes its doctrine. "The word "trinity " appears nowhere in the bible. Neither does Rapture, or Second Coming, or Original Sin. If they are still unfazed (or unphrased) by this, then add Omniscience, Omnipresence, Supernatural, Transcendence, Afterlife, Deity, Divinity, Theology, Monotheism, Missionary, Immaculate Conception, Christmas, Christianity, Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Methodist, Catholic, Pope, Cardinal, Catechism, Purgatory, Penance, Transubstantiation , Excommunication, Dogma, Chastity, Unpardonable Sin, Infallibility, Inerrancy, Incarnation, Epiphany, Sermon, Eucharist, the Lord's Prayer, Good Friday, Doubting Thomas, Advent, Sunday School, Dead Sea, Golden Rule, Moral, Morality, Ethics, Patriotism, Education, Atheism, Apostasy, Conservative (Liberal is in), Capital Punishment, Monogamy, Abortion, Pornography, Homosexual, Lesbian, Fairness, Logic, Republic, Democracy, Capitalism, Funeral, Decalogue, or Bible.” - Dan Barker  (7 hrs ago | post #775626)

Sorry, amigo, but that's simply not credible. You are a faith based thinker, which means that you choose something to be true, and then defend that choice.  (7 hrs ago | post #775624)
