  3. Over the years, I have read the Bible from cover to cover several times. It's not what I want it to be. It's not even what you want it to be. It's what it is. In my opinion, the Bible is full of hate. Obviously, you are not going to agree with me. Moving on -- to my understanding -- your understanding of the Bible's message is correct. I think the message is wrong and harmful and full of hate. That's my strong opinion. The Bible doesn't care what I think. Neither do you. Your understanding of what the Bible says -- in this regard -- is accurate.
  4. The video attempts to associate obedience towards God as being contemptuous towards sin. That much is true. God hates sin, but insinuating that Christian love is disguised as something hateful is disingenuous to say the least. Its really promoting the necessity to endorse evil, because that's the loving thing to do. Conflating Christian love as something hateful just because it doesn't approve of sin is insisting that one must love bad along with good. Ridiculous!

  6. I have a doctorate and Minister's license in metaphysics and I have never publicly used the title, but I did extensive study and practice for the titles and I should that sense of authority within myself and in my conversations with others. I think it comes down to owning the knowledge and feeling confident about what you know.

  10. I'm going to split a few hairs with you over this. Their ideas are silly. The people themselves are deeply conditioned. Deep conditioning is not silly. It's what happens when a religious culture can't tell the difference between symbolic representations of reality -- and reality. If people want to spend their days, working out the hidden mathematics of Bible Hebrew -- it's their time to waste. Well, that's a little harsh. If it makes them happy, then so be it. Everybody needs a hobby. Ave Satanus.
  11. I followed your link. This blend of Scripture, Kabbalah, Tarot, gematria and physics is not proof of anything. Alright. You believe. I don't argue with what people believe. It is not in any way objective proof for God's existence. Something which you did not define. In any event, this esoteric soup is not evidence.
  12. As I said, "". There is no seeking a following or any such thing - its entire purpose is to awaken the human intellect to an information paradox that resides in the text. All instructions are included - you can choose to do the experiment for yourself (which is best) or follow the directions I give you on my website after you read the blog. That is located at: "" And no.., it is gratis. And keep in mind this is only the surface of a very large Black Hole. It starts
  13. That's it then. So many come to this board to preach some message or other, then wander off. Some come here looking for a following. Some just do drive by preaching. Good riddance to them.
  14. Do you have anything to offer beside bald assertions; unsupported by anything?
  15. Hello, My name is Manuel, I have worked now almost 25 years with the Biblical Hebrew text of the Torah and other books in relation to those studies in the Tanach. The reason I am writing this is in reply to this article and its pronouncements. I think I have something that needs to be said: Yes. There is a 'God'. And there is practical repeatable by experiment, proof of that depending on whether a person is given the proper knowledge of how to produce it. The book of Daniel tells of a time when what 'Daniel' (which I hold were a group of the High Priesthood of Israel) hid away by his 'closing
  16. It's a sad thing to be a moderate. We end up being hated by all the extremists. This much I have figured out. If we are not all free to be our selves, then we are all in danger. The pendulum swings. The wheel turns. Power shifts.
  17. You often remind me of Dr Jubal Harshaw from "stranger in a strange land". This is a good thing btw
  18. I am a poor, miserable choice to be an advocate for the religious. Still, as the saying goes -- there comes a time when we must set aside our values and do what's right. The manuals of mental disorder do not list religion or religious belief. No. Religious belief is not a form of mental illness. I shouldn't have to say this. History is filled with highly intelligent, brilliant minds that were -- are -- deeply religious. I've met a few of them. Being religious is not the same as being weak minded. For that matter, I used to be religious. I think my understanding of such t
  19. More babble from the bibble. Anyone who quotes from the bibble as if to prove a point clearly suffers from some form of mental illness. It would be like quoting from Harry Potter and referencing all the other Harry Potter books as additional proof. Why do we suffer the weak-minded?
  20. Job 3:4 Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.

  21. I enjoy Bible symbolism in the same way that I enjoy poetry. I do not confuse Bible symbolism for reality. I do not use Bible symbolism to explain reality. That is because Bible symbolism is not reality. I take a statement like -- God is Light -- or -- God is Love -- to be symbolic statements. These symbolic statements have nothing to do with reality. Your confusion stems from the fact that you disdain distinctions. You have been clear on that, these many years. Yes, I have quoted passages about Light as a symbol for God. That is the point of this thread. Symbolic repr
  22. Excuse me, but who quoted 2 bible verses in the first post of this thread? In fact, you quoted a total of 5, while I quoted 2. A case of the pot calling the kettle black?
  23. Do you really want to argue with Dan's beliefs? You know he's only going to throw more Bible Scripture at you.
  24. Just a little side note (though still on topic). Fun for a bit of "light" reading (pun intended) and says (again) more about people than about any (real or perceived) deity: Nightfall — by Isaac Asimov.
