Here, there, and everywhere.
It proves you're an idiot. :dunno:
Is that the best argument you've got to defend God?

:lmao:
I’m pretty sure the creator of existence can take care of himself. A better question is what does your assault on God say about you.

It says that I'm sick and fucking tired of seeing our society and our politics being so profoundly warped by the naive and the stubborn who still believe that it is their duty to push The God of Abraham, as defined in The Torah, The New Testament and/or The Qur'an as deeply in to our politics and our society as is possible.
Really? I haven’t seen that. Maybe you’re just overly sensitive. Are you on a JW mailing list or something? Are Mormons waiting to ambush you when you leave your house? Are you being chased by Evangelicals who are trying to give you a baptizing?
How about the simple fact that every politician in America MUST close every address or engagement with "... and God bless The United States of America." or they lose.

America is slowly but surely crawling out from under the influence of The Bible and this is a good thing. It's just taking a painfully long Time for me.

Time is precious.

This is why, when I find myself shouting something from a rooftop, it's usually trying to encourage people to bury The God of Abraham, as defined in The Torah, The New Testament and The Qur'an with the dusty Arabs who wrote those ancient tales, and to pursue instead a relationship with The God of (insert your name here).

I see SO much potential for our species! We just need to shake loose of the influence of those ancient, patriarchal tales.

I've noticed the strange ambivalence (from my perspective) in the bible mindset of Americans.

And a strange mix of graphic up close and personal, and prudishness, which doesn't exist in Europe. Almost as if some of them had just arrived on the Mayflower.

Regarding the OP, the theme of railing at God crops up many time in movies, and songs. Jack Nicholson raises his eyes to to the heavens, and says "Anything else?" In Something's Gotta Give.


And David Byrne, from Talking Heads, imploring God: "Back off, what have I done?"

Yes. My real name isn't vasuderatorrent. His real name isn't Avg-Joe. Your real name isn't ding.

Not only Yes but duh.

But just because this is pretend life doesn't mean you can scream troll and pretend to win an argument.

Nevermind. I guess you can. Enjoy!
Of course you are pretending. No one here believes you were a Christian who lost faith.

You’re just a troll seeking to subordinate religion. Probably even communist leaning too. Amirite?

Not even close. If I could create a religious theocracy of any persuasion then I would. That makes me an extreme right wing radical. That would be far from communism. I would only subordinate the religion(s) that aren't part of the theocracy. Until the time that that theocratic view is imposed on me then I will have my own opinion which you may not like.

The definition of a troll is someone with an opinion that differs from the person calling him/her a troll. I am only a troll if you disagree with my opinion. So yes. I probably am a troll.
Wrong. Communism forced their religious beliefs on everyone. That makes you exactly like them.

I think people should be happy and not saddled down with endless arguments over imaginary sky daddies. Just pick one and commit already. Geez. Kill those who don't like the selection and let's move forward together to do stuff. Multiculturalism is an obstacle that hinders progress. Let's all get happy and productive already.
But you are the one arguing about it. How many threads have you created on it in the last thirty days? Ten?

Go count them and then you will know.

I guess you could just make up a number. That's usually how you handle things. Just make shit up. Ten is fine.

There is no need in finding the truth when it is so easily accessible to you.

Pick your own number and make sure that number makes you feel good.

If it feels good it is true. ~ding

I think people should be honest.

Are you planning to lead by example? lol

The writer of Hebrews, Paul.
No proof Paul wrote anything. And where does a brown Arab guy get a name like Paul, that’s dumb.

Nonsense, there is a great deal of proof that Paul wrote everything. In fact the evidence points to Paul creating the Christian religion from a variety of sources, some Gnostic, some tradition myth, some Greek, some Sumerian. Paul took the tales and crafted a cohesive religion much like Joseph Smith and Jim Jones did. Paul became a very powerful man - until the Romans became irritated.....
Carbon dating disagrees with you.

Carbon dating of what?

The Dead Sea Scrolls? Try again...

Carbon dating the Dead Sea Scrolls - Wikipedia
Your link shows that the carbon dating of these pieces (or whatever this link is talking about) is not confined to when the authors would have lived.

I shows that the scrolls were produced over an 800 year period, into the 3rd century CE. Which means your claim was nonsense.

Maybe you should start a church.

You seem to have a lot of passion for your religion.

If you are arguing against someone else’s religious beliefs, you might be a religious nut job.

I am an Internet Preacher and this thread (as well as others scattered through out this message board) is my church.

All I'm asking, for the sake of truth, is for 21'st Century humans to bury the God of Abraham with the Ancient Arabs and establish a filter-free relationship with The God of (insert your name here).
