  1. Dear Rev Al, you were a loving and kind man and very conciderate .Your posts were always well thought out. Although I never met you in person I always wished I had. I was choked by the news and I still am tearfull. I miss you my friend.
  2. Thanks Murph. I hope you are much better. This news has hit me
  3. I heard bad news about Rev Al. I heard he died. If this is true I feel there should be a place where we can leave our thoughts for this gentle, thoughtful, and loving person on the forum. I will really miss him. Please forgive me if I missed it on the forum. I feel very choked.
  4. Dreams often are about events in your own life and maybe portrayed in what ever fantasy that comes from your memories, If your low and tearful or someone around you is then you may dream about such things. Most dreams that you remember take place just before waking and your mind is coming too. Hence they are often associated with events in your life.
  5. They used do that with me but I came back strong that made them look bad. Now they leave me alone.
  6. I just wonder what does it matter what theists think of atheists. I think each person knows their own path in life and those who think you have no right to not believe in what they say are at fault. A person can be a Christian or an Atheist . Unfortunately there are many debates that are brought about by those who feel their view is right for all and all should adopt it or be at fault. In there is much turmoil. On topics like homosexuality the trouble is again not that a person is gay but those who keep saying they have no right to exist as a gay or it is some illness which needs curing. They then cause terrible misery. What others chose to say about theism should be for them only and they alone should live it and leave the rest of us alone. It is not that Atheists are not wanting to be saved but that they do not recognise anything to be saved from and the means of being so called saved is nonsense to them. Some do not understand this.
  7. Very likely Jonathan. I saw on a documentary of an atheist church run like a traditional Christian episcopalian church. They just like the atmosphere.
  8. I think it happens because many people do not see it your way.
  9. The survey suggests that a large number of people who profess a faith do not believe it
  10. The survey suggested: 17% of all people believe the Bible version word-for-word 31% of Christians believe word-for-word the Bible version, rising to 57% among "active" Christians (those who go to a religious service at least once a month) Exactly half of all people surveyed did not believe in the resurrection at all 46% of people say they believe in some form of life after death and 46% do not 20% of non-religious people say they believe in some form of life after death 9% of non-religious people believe in the Resurrection, 1% of whom say they believe it literally
  11. Thanks Meredog. That pretty much kills the Isis, Ra and Elnil view point
  12. I am also told "Israel" mean God is triumphant. Not speaking the languages, I just do not know. I just want to seperate the rubbish from the fact. Like I say I am not aiming to argue. Thanks. If anyone has further info I would be grateful
  13. Hi Johnathan, I would has it a guess about less than 5% is truthful. However I am looking at some writings that talk about there being many gods. I am aware of the Jewish assertion that there is one. I also hear of Egyptian, Babylonian, and other religions pre dating Judaism from the region. I am just interested in origins of God in culture. Not wishing to bash anyone. Just do not want being preached at.
  14. I was reading that the word Israel is made of three gods IS for Isis, Ra for Ra or Re, and El for Elnil the horned god. The Bible talks about EL often in the early passages. I am told this is maybe from the mountain god or the solar god. Please can people give any ideas to look further on this topic. I understand this topic may be touchy to some but I would like educated sourses from history and not just bible references unless relevant to my research. Please understand I do not believe in the bible being totally truthful so please take scorn elsewhere. Thank you friends.
  15. My comment was about the quotes and there relevance to child suffering and death.
