Well done. For those who do their homework when reading such issues, it proves one thing: the sources (ie. evilbible.com and Charlotte along with just about all the others) deliberately spread falsehoods and therefore can't be trusted.
It's amazing that humble christians Always know the right context and can interpret every bit of the Holy Book of Jews Written by Jews for Jews (yes, you can claim that Abraham technically wasn't jew, but we both know the "context")
Bible says test the scriptures....I did and they failed over and over again. I have prayed many times that "God" strike me down and take me from this "hell" if I was wrong...hasn't happened yet....I'm either that "one" lost sheep that wandered off or a part of that 1/3 who will be saved (except I believe the ones who wrote the Bible got it backwards...the "unbelievers" are probably the "saved" ones). Anyway....when "God" commands murder, doesn't punish those who commit rape and incest, sets us up to fail by tempting us with a "forbidden tree" and then punishes us for something HE framed up for us....no thanks! I would rather burn (how do you burn eternally when you have "perished"-it means to cease!) forever....another rant I could start on....hope they have marlboro lights in a box. Salvation essentially is selfish...and I wouldn't want people serving me by threatening them! Geezus! I have 3 kids and I don't want them to fear me! I didn't tell them right out of the womb - "You're a sinner! HORRIBLE BABY! You are going to hell!" No! I fell in love with each of them and celebrated the beginning of their life with dreams and anticipation of their story in life. If we truly believed that they may go to hell than why do we continue to have children? That makes us parents inhumane and careless....beasts! If we can't know for sure that our children will "get saved" then why the heck would we "be fruitful and multiply" with only a hope that they will escape the eternal flames of hell...UGH! I am getting ill just thinking about that! It is heartbreaking to think that some very kind and generous, loving and compassionate, understanding and tolerant people that I have known in my life are going to "burn" in hell for not believing in JESUS. In fact, all the time I was trying to "save" them, they just loved me and accepted me FOR ME...can't say that about many religious folks....as I was a heavy duty "get 'em all saved" crusader like most of "believers"! This is my "coming out of the closet"....my first posting/annoucement as I transition to being a believer of HUMANITY and rid my life of religious bullpoop. I have chosen reason over faith....I choose reason over faith ANY day! After 32 years of living a non-denomination(which is a denomination in itself)/baptist religious and creed-following life, I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT!!!! I once was lost but now I'm found! Peace...and I "pray" for grace upon my soul if I am wrong...for the time being, I am free to think and it feels "oh, so good"! Btw-I have been researching ancient texts, how the Bible(including other religious texts) was "created"(no relation to the "In the beginning" creation"), who was in charge of the MANY Bibles and their use by the controlling leaders, the political and religious movements of ancient civililations and anything/everything in between for the past 8 months with a burning desire to prove what I was doubting was wrong....but my research drifted towards proving what I believed was weak in proof. So, I haven't had a tragic experience nor been "punished" by "God"...only became a grown-up and started eating meat and got fed with real life.I am not an angry person...in fact, I am very loving, giving, compassionate and a student of life. I don't hate anyone or anything. If my comment appears that I am angry, my apologies...I am passionate with a whole lotta ADHD so my vibes can get misread at times! ;-) Whew...my first testimony...
I apologize...I didn't mean to post my comment on this discussion...bookmarked wrong topic and didn't pay attention when I posted my comment.Have a great day! ;-)m
Mariano:You are nothing but a religious con artist straight from the Dark ages. Atheism is not dead it is Christianity that is dead. I will prove it!The Bible is filled with horrible verses and examples of lack of morality these can be check at my website. WWW.SCIENCECLUBOFLONGISLAND.COMWhy are you lying to all the people? You are not discrediting the Evil Bible website, any fool could look these verses up and see that they are all there! Are you delusional? You claim you discredit all these sites, it is you who are discredited! You do not understand Science, you are clueless when it comes to History and you are a certified liar when it comes to the Bible!Why should anyone listen to you? Atheism is not dead, it is Christianity that is dead! The Bible has been thrown out of Public Schools, never to show its ugly face.Evolution is taught in Public Schools as the origin of man and life. Intelligent Design has been debunked, disgraced and discredited. And you have the balls to say that Atheism is dead! It is Christianity that is dead. It is about time the people knew that Christ never fulfilled his promise to return in the lifetime of his apostles as he promised. That makes Christ the asshole a fraud, Christianity the biggest hoax in humanity and you a certified fool!Let us all look at these beautiful verses in the Bible:Eat Human Feces!"And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung thatcometh out of man, in their sight. And the LORD said, Even thus shall thechildren of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I willdrive them." (Ezekiel 4:12-13).Eating Shit and Drinking Piss"But Rabshakeh said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and tothee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on thewall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?" (IIKings 18:27)You must now follow your God's orders and eat shit and drink piss!Eating your children when you are hungry!"And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This womansaid unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my sontomorrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on thenext day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son...." (IIKings 6:28-29).When are you going to start eating your children?Expose Her Breasts!"Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts; and I will discover thyskirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and thekingdoms thy shame. And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thevile, and will set thee as gazingstock." (Nahum 3:5-6). Is your wife going to act like a slut and expose her breasts?FartingWherefore my bowels shall sound like a harp for Moab, and mine inward partsfor Kirharesh. (Isaiah 16:11) Are you going to fart to please your lord?Since you want to be a tough guy and pick on the Atheists let us show you how tough we can be.The Science Club of Long Island Inc. Publicly challenges you to prove the existance of God!At stake one million dollars.Let us see how tough you really are?!January 30, 2010 6:10 PM
