You DO NOT know my religion better than I do. Just what makes you think you do? Do you have an inside track to the unknown? What makes you smarter than anyone else on this planet? Have you been given the secrets of the universe? Oh my goodness! I am conversing with the ALL BEING..THE ALL KNOWING! How could I ever be so lucky! I never thought I would be so honored!
What makes me think I know your religion better than you? Oh your posts and your unbelievable ignorance and most especially your actions. You attack anyone who is not like you like a spoiled brat. Others here have already pointed out the various bible verses you’ve ignored in your desperation to attack. And I am quite a bit smarter than many on this planet. I have a nicely high IQ, and before you take a fit and say that doesn’t’ matter, I’ll remind you that you constantly benefit from people smarter than you have demonstrated yourself to be. Your food, your house, medicine, computers, are all from intelligent people. And nice strawman arguments. No, Joe, I don’t have to know the secrets of the universe to know more than you and I never claimed any such thing. Someone who tries to claim that someone has said something they have not is lying. Just to remind you, your god hates lying and liars, even if they think they are doing for him (Romans 3, you know).
How on earth do you think you know anymore than I or anyone else for that matter? Please,please tell me that! Just tell me that!
It’s called education, dear and being able to hold a discussion without throwing a fit and calling people names and indulging in violent fantasies about magical beings. One would think you were reading Harry Potter books, hoping that Harry will kill Voldemort or maybe it’s Peter Pan where you really hope clapping will save fairies. I wonder, do you think those books are about real witchcraft or that you learn real spells playing Dungeons & Dragons?
I do not know how you can look at a flower, a sunset, the internal makeup of a human being to function, a human brain, a spiders web, a human creation and not realize there is a supreme being that is responsible for all of this. Bacteria-give me a break. Mosquitoes in heaven, come on.
This has been addressed by my fellow forum members. Your ignorance of any other religion shows amazingly well here. All theists, be they Muslim, Hindu, etc, all claim the same thing, that one can see their god in flowers, a sunset, etc. Well, Joe, it’s up to you to show me it’s your god, the one from the bible. Can you do that, Joe? And funny how we can also see in the world, anacephalic babies, worms in people’s eyes, etc Are they also “evidence” of your god too? Humans need bacteria to live. Your ignorance of science is just about on par with that of your religion.
You simply do not want to humble yourself to the fact that there is an all being.
No, you fail here too. I could also say that you simply don’t want to humble yourself to Odin All-Father, or Zeus, or Allah, or Vishnu. It would mean just as much, and in case you don’t get that, it would mean nothing. I find nothing to humble myself to. Your god has no evidence it exists. There is no evidence of any resurrection, no Exodus, no creationism, no miracles, no magic flood, no dead walking the streets after some man/god was raised from the dead. Just like every other god, you only have myths. And even if your god was real, it’s a petty brat, almost as bad as you’ve shown yourself to be. I would not worship something that advocates genocide and harming people just for not believing in it. I’m a better person than your god has been described. He can’t even come up to the bible’s own definition of love.
Someone mentioned the fact, when I brought up millions of people and thousands of years believing in God, that there were multiple Gods and multiple religions. Yes, true but perhaps those multiple Gods were, in fact, only different names and faces for one God, the God. Capitalize the word God? He deserves it.
Here your ignorance of your own religion comes into play again. Your god says no other gods are to be worshipped before him. You remember, the commandments? If your claim was to be considered true, one would have to wonder why your god is so stupid to say such a thing.
We will all argue until we are blue in the face and never convince one another of our beliefs.
And again you fail. People have become atheists from these discussions. People have converted from Christianity to other religions. Your claim is a lie. Now, you may ignore us as you have, desperate to convince yourself that you and only you are right. But that’s not being honestly interested in evidence, it would indicate that you only wanted to preach at us and not be countered on your baseless claims.
Something in my heart, perhaps women's intuition if you will, tells me I am right. You may call it hope, I call it faith. I am sorry you do not have it. I believe you would feel better if you did.
Golly, a woman’s intuition? Funny since I have ovaries, I should have it too. I was a Christian, and yep, I had faith too. I prayed and prayed not to lose it. Funny how I did and this god did nothing. People believe in a lot of wrong things, Joe. Believing doesn’t make them true, neither does your “heart” nor does wishful thinking. Your god is as imaginary as any other god.
It does make me wonder why you all feel you have to fight so strongly to get your beliefs across to other people though, if it is true, it is true.
We will all find out soon enough, won't we?
Aw, more violent fantasies. What a good Christian you are! Now, Joe, if you are right, why nothing to support your claims? Why are there billions on this planet who don’t believe like you do and you have to waste billions of dollars trying to convert them, even trying to convert them from one Christian sect to another? Gee, if it were really true, by your faulty reasoning, it should be obvious. But it’s not and you fail again. Your god will not return and I’ll go along in my life happy and content, with no greed for an afterlife or fear that I didn’t get something right and will be damned. You’ll be waiting at the altar so to speak, your supposed “bridegroom” having never have existed at all.
