I agree. I recently told a person that if he’s going to tell me about god, I want equal time in return. Bill Maher has the right response when it comes to God.April 21, 2019 at 10:07 PM #812338
Then why are you spelling it like that?April 22, 2019 at 8:02 AM #812341
certainly dont want to irritate Him in the extremely unlikely event he exists by my presumptuously spelling out His name. same reason i wear a yarmulke.
i mean, come on, obviously all religion is a giant scam, and G-d is a creation of our own anxiety and need to belong to a group that excludes others, and a need to control each other, but one never knows. it’s maybe possible He exists…in some Universe of the infinite universes, an angry G-d who doesnt speak or apparently care about human suffering is angered by the uncovered head or his name spelled out and had a kid who he conspired to torture or at least failed to protect in orderto save our eternal souls, through some leap in logic which only nakes sense if you believe, even though its crazy sounding on the surface of it…torturw, zombie jesus, miracles..
based on pascals wager we should probably all just sincerely believe everything is true though. so i accept Him as my personal savior, praise allah. also, ill keep koshe, just in case. .
but not sure that will technically work .
anyway costco closes on easter. pretty irritating. i believe in Jesus, but theres nothing in scripture about shutting down commerce in Gods chosen nation on Easter.April 22, 2019 at 8:27 AM #812342
Exactly the kind of gem-packed answer I was hoping for. Man, you really are one of a kind.April 22, 2019 at 9:37 AM #812343

10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.April 22, 2019 at 12:45 PM #812345

i definitely agree with G-d that a fetus isnt a person and killing one should be punishable by a fine.
G-d, aka jesus, said it pretty clearly in Exodus 21:22‑23, where Scripture states: “When men fight and one of them pushes a pregnant woman and a miscarriage results, but no other misfortune ensues, the one responsible shall be fined as the woman’s husband may exact from him, the payment to be based on judges’ reckoning.April 22, 2019 at 1:34 PM #812346svelteParticipant

The biggest problem with pascals wager: there is more than one g-d in the world and they don’t agree with each other. Plus some are super jealousy when you believe in other g-d.
But on the positive side, life is too damn hard and sometimes you do need miracles from multiples g-ds, which can help you to create multiple conflicting stories to get through it.April 22, 2019 at 8:24 PM #812348CoronitaParticipant
I’m not very religious…
But for argument’s sake…
What’s the difference between ridiculing people of Christian faith over a blog, hurling insults at such religion, and religious people, spitting and pissing on what probably matters a lot to them…versus hurling a bunch of stereotypes and a vulgarities about a say an Latino or African American or Muslim?
Is this sort of ridicule here on this thread *that* much different than Donald Trump’s ridicule and disdain for Muslims, or have we all sunken to an all time low across the board?April 23, 2019 at 12:40 AM #812349FlyerInHiGuest
Says the guy who called AOC crazy. Why don’t you let her proselytize her ideas and if she has enough followers then she will be right. Socialism is just a choice to manage our affairs. What’s crazy about that?
God on the hand is crazy by definition.
Being Latino or African American is beyond one’s control.
As far as Muslims, people like Trump don’t question the belief in god per se — they believe Islam is evil and disparage cultures associated with Islam. And they apply guilt by association to whole populations. The Trumpistas just need the same rule applied to them in return.April 23, 2019 at 6:56 AM #812352
christianity in us is political power.
also christians prosyletize like crazy. in fact the bible commands them so…if someone is trying to sell you something and it sucks, or is useless or doesnt work, you are allowed to tell then so…
if its not offensive for a chridtian to “share” his faith [in what is really the single most obnoxious sales pitch of all time]..and pity your lack of salvation….its not offensive to say why its wrongheaded. yelp.
i remember when religion was…private…
not so in your face
and what is with the anti abortion shit. the bible exolicitly says a fetus is NOT the equivalent of a human, see above. jesus never said boo about fetuses. the christian right judt made that ABORTION IS MURDER shit up.
its all political…bullshit…
furthermore, if you really have faith, some dope on the internet wont upset you unless.. theres some truth to what hes saying…
like bikes…if you rant about how dangerous and stupid and backwards they are, i wont be offended. ill just think you are sad and lost and deluded and foolish. and missing out on a beautiful thing
the real and growing threat isnt atheism…
at least thats acknowledging g-d.
the threat is apatheism.
that the whole topic is irrelevant
which really is where i need to get…
but the CHRISTIANS ARE SO LOUD AND PUSHY…and republican…
i did have a nice talk w sone muslim prosyletizers in Balboa park, not about allah but about islamic banking, home loans and the prohibition on interest workarounds.
those guys were chill and humble because they know theyre hated
Christians just like to PRETEND theyre a hated outsider group. if they really were theyd be chill too.April 23, 2019 at 7:19 AM #812353
we cant know if there’s a heaven because no one comes back.
however we can know some of religions failings because hardcore christians abandon their faith sometimes and report back their prior delusions .April 23, 2019 at 9:02 AM #812354

“You’ve chosen to base your life on a ridiculous fantasy. Which is bad enough by itself, but I could ignore that. But you want me to share your delusions? You want our country to base its laws on your delusions? FUCK. YOU.”
“You’re black. You must be stupid. And lazy. And suckling at the government teat.”
Can you really not see the difference?
No difference. They’re deluded fools, too.
