Chatter / Re: Thanksgiving

Well, my Southern Baptist Convention Employee Conservative Republican aunt has a gay son so, I don't think that subject will come up. Gossip, in the South, gets around pretty quickly.

You know what I find funny, many of them love science fiction films and/or TV. One is a diehard Doctor Who fan, another loves The Big Bang Theory, another can't get enough of anything Star Trek but they're all Creationists.

I just find that ironic.

If it was reversed and the bus driver had asked a Christian, "Did you know there is no God? Why are you wasting time with religion?" I am sure the atheists would consider it freedom of speech and worthy of admiration.

Yet the reverse is bad? That doesn't seem fair.

No bus driver should be bullying students with their personal beliefs/ideologies, atheist or otherwise. When a bus driver is on the job, you know, driving students to and from school, she does not have free speech protection under the law in her bus driving role. She is bound by the duties of the bus driver code of conduct, and the company that employes her can discipline/terminate her for violating their rules.

If that same bus driver wants to stand on a corner and yell at others about their personal sins, while off duty, that is protected free speech, assuming she is not violating any local or federal laws related to public gathering, etc.

As long as we don't talk about religion and politics, I think it'll be fine.

Hmmm...my experience say's that is too many republicans to avoid discussing politics. They can't seem to keep it to themselves - you know, the latest Fox News soundbites about the liberal agenda, war on Christmas, the gays taking over, and of course, Christian persecution run amok.

Hopefully it goes well.

General Religious Discussion / What would you do to Cure Suffering?

I would love my neighbor as I love myself.

Really close your eyes and imagine all that love.  Did you see suffering there?  I don't.

perhaps JB might explain her claim in more to detail to the disgraceful set of;  all theists + atheists = everyone on this site except JB
what other options are there beside believe or non-belief;

Because neither perception will cure suffering.  Both perceptions cause suffering.  It's friction and where there is friction there is heat.  Where there is heat there is fire.  Where there is fire there is destruction.


partial belief, no opinion, undecided, avoid the question, confused??

We're all confused trying to figure things out.  It helps when we listen to each other.  It has helped me.

what exactly is JB's position if it does not involve belief or not belief??

Neutral. Both. Rogue.  I'm a rogueanist. ;D

Positual is my belief because I actually use this forum to learn and grow.

Hey everyone,

I just read through most of your stuff and the main thing that I got out of it was that you are all spending an inordinate amount of time passionately and vehemently defending your position of disbelief in God. 

Dante,
   If you have a neighborhood, whether grass huts on stilts with canoes, or little brick houses with a paved street and volkswagons, all the people will have different beliefs.  Of course - no big deal.




But this is what you might call, "Theists in Action,"  and it demands an inordinate amount of time.  Understand?

Maybe this will be enlightening. Sorry if it's a bit long.

^ well it is if hell is real and you want to avoid it, and it did make nice sunsets and cute puppies so don't be so ungrateful.

^ clearly god was under pressure to get this new universe in production so he didn't give a lot of thought to the message and to cover all bases he wrote a obscure one and added the Heisenberg uncertainty principle to cover his own ass & allow himself some wriggle room, jokes on you tho if you can't guess what he finally decides he is thinking.

You're right there! If a god did build the universe, and the bible doesn't know about the universe really, he did a shocking job for a 3 omni being. Even if it exists, it is hardly worth worshipping is it?
