Chatter / Re: Ever had any weird/cool dreams?
« Last post by Add Homonym on Today at 09:24:12 AM »
I had a small dream sequence where I was in a Japanese-type restaurant, and everyone was wearing white square paper masks out from their face, with a letterbox style slot, that they looked at their food through. I'm pretty sure this could be a Zen food eating thing.

Chatter / Re: What do you guys do for fun when you're not here?

I would like to go to the ethnic Festivals like Octoberfest, the Italian Center Festival, The Greek Festival, Puerto Rican Day, etc.  Mostly for the food.

I am not satisfied at all.  Don't BS or JST or Skep want to prove god exists?  Isn't the bible precious and not capable of being wrong?  Then why not listen to it concerning convincing the non-believer? 

If they can't conjure up the holy spirit I have no reason to believe they have a clue of what they are talking about. 

Is the holy spirit not the comforter Jesus left here after ascending into Heaven to sit at the right hand of God?

You know what?  I'm getting the impression they are afraid of the holy spirit.  What is more blaspheming?  Me asking for it to speak to me or the theists here ignoring the bible's direction on how to use it?

Yea I have a feeling alright that the verse, the only unforgivable sin is to blaspheme the holy spirit, creates fear for the theist.  I'm not going to live this life I KNOW I have in fear of something so unlikely.  8)

The avoidance of this thread leads me to conclude they doubt it's existence.  They doubt that they can channel the holy spirit even though the bible tells them so.

I remember reading at least from Gotquestions.org that it's actually impossible for us to blasphemies against the Holy Spirit in that unforgivable sin way nowadays, and that unforgivable sin referred to not believing Jesus when he was right there in front of them on Earth performing miracles.  So everyone's fine on the "unforgivable sin" front. :)

  Likewise, when we think there is noone around to hold us accountable, our actions reveal something about us.

What about when you believe there is always a god watching? When do you get to show how good you are?

What mechanism allows you to perceive the spiritual dimension?

What is a spirit and how do you detect it?

I believe Allah/Diana/Buddha/Brahma/Gaia/Isis/Krishna/Shiva were quite specific about it.

Problem is, they never decided on anything regarding doctrine, or facts.

^^Aren't theists so good at giving a verse here and there and overlooking the rest of a chapter much less the book?  Oh yea they can quote 1 verse in Psalms add it to a verse in proverbs divided by the Roman's Road and draw a logical conclusion. &)  Yes I rolled my eyes.

I can honestly say when looking at the "whole" book it's very whacky and cruel.  Very cruel.

Now Jehovah sounds like a peeping tom in the sky.  I need my privacy.  How rude! 

Does God not have faith in his own creation?  There comes a time in every parents life they have to trust that they did a good job raising their kids.  Teaching them everyday to love life, check facts and budget.  Will they make mistakes?  You can bet on it.  Will they learn and grow from them?  Maybe not bet on that but trust it. 

That's why we keep telling you the parent analogy fails.  Parents are present in their child's life.  The child does not have to have "blind faith" their parents exist.   They can hug them 20 times a day.  Parents can answer questions.  If you don't get it now I might just lose hope you ever will. :-\

I have more faith in my garbage box than God has in his creation.  Sad. :'(

it seems selfishness is what determines if a prayer is claimed to be answered.   this woman is monstrous, since her god is nothing more than imaginary.
