  1. this is a problem for Christian belief, isn't it? give that it's all real. the serpent is a dynamic deceiver. therefore none of the gospel is trustworthy, because it easily could have been infernal inspiration that led to the work as it is today. judge by the fruits, and just what are the most popular ones? sex scandles, lies and bigotry abound in the church. killing, suppression, you name it and chances are the church has done it. no thanks to Christianity, is my reply.
  2. proof that it's fear based lies in the responses, which inevitably devolve into talking points about when you die and you'll find out then. it's amazing when they can't see the inherent threat, the fear, that they are trying to use to manipulate belief
  3. I don't think people are getting dumber. I think it's more exposure to the stupidity of complete strangers via much more information dissemination. The Internet shows us what we've always done but most people rarely encountered. Especially small town people.
  4. Spot on. Either God is a myth, and doesn't affect us. Or he's real, and we don't affect him. Anything beyond our control isn't worth worrying about. Been a minute. Thought I'd say hi 😊
  5. So it has authority from heaven because it says so? Who from heaven can currently confirm this authority? I mean outside of the source in question... outside of bias?
  6. Those who seek power and authority should be watched carefully I think
  7. Our foundation outside of ourselves is the process of logic. We're capable of reasoning out good morals and differentiating from bad ones, such as keeping slaves forever if they have kids with the spouse we provided
  8. Your quote? But you will receive power when... I asked if power was necessary.
  9. Hey Dan what time is it? Oh... you observed the time...darn...
  10. Yeah Dan is the authority on what is and isn't allowed
  11. You often remind me of Dr Jubal Harshaw from "stranger in a strange land". This is a good thing btw
  12. Words written by superstitious middle eastern men 2000 years ago should not be the basis of a life philosophy.
  13. Your computer was created by science. Tell you what. You don't believe in anything not created by God? Do us a favor and stop using it
  14. I doubt your resolve. I live nowhere near by anyway and can't figure out what your really saying
  15. One of the greatest lies ever told was that we are born somehow wrong, in sin. It is a lie that has led not to peace or prosperity or enlightenment but rather to suppression, murder and suffering. The book containing this lie does espouse some truth. After all the best lie has a little truth to make it easier to swallow. The truth is you can judge by its fruit. What has been wrought from the tree of Christian beliefs and the bible? Certainly not love of everyone. Look at the proselytizers and how they are busy condemning every other belief. How much war and pain and evil has been wrought by those supporting this book of lies? We aren't inherently evil, but rather start with good in each of us. Don't surrender it to the lie.
  16. I know plenty of your mythology. You just don't appreciate that I have figured out it's not reality.
  17. Adoption of another culture's events certainly wouldn't be wrong if credit was given. However not only is credit lacking but the thieves deliberately meant to harm the original culture by demonizing and usurping them.
  18. Truth in my view requires fact. Lack of evidence would suggest you have your statement correct but applicable to yourself instead. Can you accurately define delusional?
  19. If we're not predisposed to sin we're not beholden to the original sin and not born in need of salvation and your religion becomes a racket
  20. If God is responsible for our environment and genetics and those are what determines how we choose then yes he is. Now you have said that the environmental option was nonsense and you have agreed with it. Obviously he would be responsible for the genetic option since he designed it. He stacked the deck from the all knowing perspective you credit him with. Yep you agree he's responsible...your just afraid to admit it
  21. The environmental learning, yes. So you clearly agree that we are a product of our environment and genetics. And that God created and set the rules for both. And that he is by default responsible for his programming.
