Hi All!
« on: October 10, 2013, 12:17:04 PM »
I am new to this site, living in Portland, OR.  Being a Christian, I am sure I will become a lightning bolt for many of you.  Don't look for me to preach, rant, or rave, or to know it all....I won't and I don't.  As I said on another topic one of my mantras is "To believe greatly, is to doubt greatly." I look forward to some logical, factual discussions with you all. And I hope that we can agree to disagree.

Being a Christian, I am sure I will become a lightning bolt for many of you.

Perhaps you meant "lightning rod".  :laugh:
Nevermind, the shock treatment will only be used to find out what on earth you're grounded to.
I hope we'll learn something from you too  :)

I hope so, I can recall none of the religious who have shed much light. : )

Welcome Randyjp, do you know why God won't heal amputees?

Welcome aboard, Randyjp - I hope you enjoy your stay.

Nothing against you personally Rjp... I truly hope you live long and prosper here.  But could we start doing an over/under "bet" on how long a new theist stays around?  They are like double scoop ice cream cones on a summer day - great to have in the start, but then melt away on your hand into nothing and splat on the sidewalk in no time.  :(

If xian hell really exists, the stench of the burning billions of us should be a constant, putrid reminder to the handful of heavenward xians how loving your god is.  - neopagan

Welcome to the spot Randy. Stay a while and shoot the breeze with us. We'll try to hear you out and we ask that you do the same. Let's see where evidence reveals the truth to be!

Well, at least he has not told us we are going to hell yet and that God still loves us.

That is a ... blessing.

As I said on another topic one of my mantras is "To believe greatly, is to doubt greatly."

Do you mean like this?




I look forward to some logical, factual discussions with you all. And I hope that we can agree to disagree.

So, you won't be talking to us about Christianity and belief, I presume?

Hello Randyjp!

Being a Christian, I am sure I will become a lightning bolt for many of you.

You mean we'll kill bulls and burn the best bit to stop Zeus from hurling you at us? ;)
