why doesnt jesus do ANY of the things he promised in his book?
and why does he utterly despise amputees?
Blaziken,
     Do you know that I get reported for proselytizing if I talk about why God does things?

no, you got reported for quoting bible verses without either talking about those verses and proving them to be true or proving the bible to be true as a whole
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?
We choose our own gods.

Would Jesus WANT homosexuals to be put to death?
Well, you'll probably report me for referencing the Bible, but it says that God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked.

So no, in God's perfect world there would be no homosexuals being put to death.

Interesting.  Well, if/when you get out of the ER can you answer the next one...

Would Jesus want YOU to want homosexuals to be put to death?

Nice dodge by use of reframing.

Now let's address THIS world, which is NOT "god's perfect world."

Would god want homosexuals to be put to death in THIS world?

^^ No he did create a perfect world... it's just that that one little thing that he has no control over, you know, free will, buggered it all up and made it imperfect.  &)

Is there any one in this thread interested in actual discussion? I'm going to start putting people on ignore because they are taking up valuable space. But if you have a genuine question, feel free to ask.

My question was genuine, no matter how it rubs you. I'd like to know, typical solid tube-shaped always, or the occasional two day bout of miracle quashing montazuma's revenge? A rectal aperture or none?

Additional, did he have a fully functional regular endocrine system, or did it lack components required for the reproductive process?

You believe evolution and there is no evidence for that. Where is the fossil record of a half man half ape. I've only ever heard about it in reading.

Taking up "valuable" space. How dare you come to this forum and pretend to know what is valuable to us or not.

The fact is you are simply trying to proselytize and are not at all interested in "discussion," so get off your high horse and you might be able to learn a little something about how normal people think and understand reality instead of dealing in myths, lies and superstitions.
This is just as much my forum as it is yours. I was here before you and I'll be here after.

I was here before you and I will probably be here after you, Mark-Adam, so is it more my forum now?

You should apologize for your emotional outburst.

Not really.  This is a forum for non believers and those recovering from religion... it's a forum for the rational.  Although you are free to hang out here, it really isn't a forum designed to make believers in the supernatural feel at home.  This is no more your forum than it is a Muslim forum or Scientologist forum.  We don't believe in your magic men any more than you believe in theirs.  I don't go to woo forums and tell the woo how gullible I think they are, but I feel free to do so here.

I'm an equal opportunity mocker.  I like it when self-righteous theists (such as yourself) drop by here on atheist territory so they can be treated the way they treat all those who do not share their magical beliefs.  Personally, I think all religionists should be as polite and unassuming as they want the other wacky religionists to be.  Because to this atheist you are all equally wrong about the magical things you believe in.  Each religionist may feel they are obviously more moral than those who believe differently, but we atheists don't see your imagined morality (nor your imagined humility either).  I find you all a bit smarmy and dishonest-- you have to be to keep lying to yourself and to keep telling yourself that faith is something good.   

There's no evidence that Jesus actually existed as opposed to being an amalgam of legendary characters, false memories, or schizophrenic delusions.  There is no way to know anything true about any supposed real Jesus fellow-- and it's pretentious and goofy to imagine that you (fool) have insight into the divine.  Jesus is less knowable than Muhummed in fact. 

At least atheists don't run around claiming to "know" inane things they cannot know regarding divine, invisible, undetectable beings and their incarnate sons (who are really them) via some mystical triune monotheistic semantic nuttery that makes no sense at all.  But many theists do.  Sadly, they don't seem to agree with each other on much of the details, but each feels as right as Fred Phelps.

Fool, I have started a new topic here http://whywontgodhealamputees.com/forums/index.php?topic=13271.0 based on your answer.  I would like your comment over there, so that this topic won't be derailed.

Here is a question: Why didn't Mathew or John mention the ascension of Jesus and the non-eye witnesses did?

whatever people are experiencing when they experience God, it's not something they're perceiving in the external world. It's something their brains are making up.

Yes, Fool, Nowadays we know why Plants, AKA Fig Trees, bear fruit and why they do not. It's called horticulture. We now know that the fig tree wasn't really being evil, and it wasn't possessed of the debil, it was just being a fig tree. So why wasn't jesus smart enough to know this?

I've made several posts, and you've replied to none of them.  If anyone isn't discussing anything, it's you.

Not that he could anyway.
To the one called Fool...
You need to realise that you set yourself up to take a thrashing.
The people here are not blind idiots.
Nor do they rely on other people to "give them inlightenment".
They are well read, smart, and impossable to fool.
Just walk away, and be glad that all you have lost is your pride.
And self confidence.
