Atheism the easy way out?

After skimming most of the front page articles it seems to me that most of the posts here are not about having a debate but rather how Christianity in general is wrong. It is  intriguing that there is a crusade for free thinking but this organization is not reaching out to people being held under Sharia Law in the the Middle East, and trying to see them set free from the hand of an even greater tyrant of a God than some seem to believe Jehovah is, or liberating people of tribal religions from cannablism and warfare. I would like to come in contact with the people who really want a debate and would base their information on logic rather than a deep rooted fear, hurt, or anger at Christianity. If you haven't guessed I am a Pentecostal believer in the Ressurection of Jesus Christ and have faith in the atoning blood that was shed on Calvary. I am not here to be converted or to convert others, but to simply fulfill the command to "preach the gospel to every creature". God bless and look forward to reading your comments.

I never said that you deserve to roast in Hell. You insinuated that because you have heard it from some "religious" old guy and it made you mad. I don't believe anyone deserves to go to Hell, but you will go there if you ignore the things God has told you to do.

Oh? Then why is anyone going? Isn't it unjust for bad things to happen to people that don't deserve it?

Quote:
Just like a mother does not want to punish their child, but will if they disobey.

No, that's not just like mothers. Mothers don't send their kids to be tortured. Mothers don't abandon their kids. Mothers don't murder their kids by the millions.

Quote:
Simply what I said is, I don't feel like anyone deserves that, but my Bible tells me that "the wages of sin are death" this is a physical death but is also a spiritual death and I have previously stated that I believe the Bible is infallible.

Ah, well if the Bible says it, then that means those people DO deserve to go to hell. Aren't you disagreeing with the Bible then?

 


 

 

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

Not exactly. It seems you don't get that I don't appeal to popularity.

No you don't, not from a human rights standpoint. YOU CAN believe what you want and it does not have to be popular.

 

 

The popularity is irrelevant.

It makes sense to me, it feels right, and other anecdotal evidence.

Your right to believe has nothing to do with your ability to demonstrate the credibility of what comes out of your mouth ON ANY ISSUE.

 

Ok, did you think by answering his question I was attempting to demonstrate the credibility f my beliefs?

It's a perfect analogy.

Sandycane wrote:

Here's an analogy:

Okay, I have my map, I'm driving down the Interstate, I know where I want to go and how to get there.

There is some guy standing on the side of the road with a detour sign, pointing up. You stop and talk to him and he says, 'If you want to get to Heaven and live for all eternity with god, you have to follow my road map and my directions.'

You ask for evidence of this god - there is none. You ask for evidence of this place called Heaven - there is none. You ask why you should want to go to this place and he shows you a book, supposedly written by this god, and it describes a vengeful, narcissistic, egotistical sadistic character.

Now, I ask you, Who in their right mind would deviate from their current 'easy' path to follow you?

Answer: Those who are lost!

 

I keep asking myself " Are they just playin' stupid, or are they just plain stupid?..."

I thought it was good.  The only thing it missed was repetition.  Where you receive the same crazy bad directions from most of the people you ask.

it's a good analogy as far as christians. But if you asked a pagan for directions they'd tell you to find your own way.....

 

 

 

...or they'd try to get you buy their crystals and sage smudge sticks....it depends on the pagan really....

The threat is never far away. Why would the master of universe need to resort to use of a fallacy from force to convince the ants his invisible arse is real?

It smacks of bullshit to me, Redemption.

HEY! One of the theists posted about an aunt or someone who was in the hospital with cancer and she prayed it away! This is the perfect opportunity for you to do an experiment and see if it actually works!

Seriously, I hope you have a speedy and full recovery.

Hi SandyCane.  I feel great. I did well through the first chemo. They are growing all the white cells etc.; back in me that they killed with the chemo.  Then I get another bone marrow biopsy.  The only problem I have had was a reaction to an anti-biotic which has left me itching from head to toe.  Thus a topical steroid.  I am here at least another 4 to 6 weeks.  I miss not being able to hold my 2 year old.  I think we should create an objective experiment to determine whether atheistic prayers may have a "law of attraction effect" that surpasses those of the Christian, Jew and Muslim.  The reasoning is that the universe is pissed that people do not see it as supreme and give credit to a non-exstent force of deity. Mother nature is amazed that so many people worship the unnatural.  We atheist do not pray on the other hand because of our response to theism.  So I in the name of the natural petition all atheists to pray for me, my bank account and libido.  We need a time frame whch will begin 12 noon tomorrow Eastern time.  You game? 

Thanks for the hope

So, do you worship something/someone using some form of organized methods and assorted accessories?

As to your web site... wow, some bit of 'magic' going on there! Yesterday, on the link to 'My Art Site', it was a completely different layout and format. Amazing switcheroo.

Yes if by 'magic' you mean changed the theme. I went to look on my sites to see what you might be talking about and I noticed on my art site the theme was broken so I reverted to the default theme. It's still broken but it's readable.

 

And when I saw it, it was grey font on a red background. None of my themes use maroon or blue, which is why I asked. btw, it's just a picture gallery so unless you were longing to know what I called the picture, the text isn't all that necessary. By the way you made it sound, you were trying to read several pages on a website that has verbal content, like a blog.

 

and fyi the ciarin.com site is going away in a few months when the domain expires. my new site is http://thebucci.com in case you're actually interested.

Gray/red... maroon/blue...difference in monitors, I suppose...

I like your new web site...and I love that version of Over the Rainbow!!!! I had it on my favorite list on YouTube.... AND, you are a knitter! I just opened a sewing supply/yarn shop but, I've been crocheting for 40 years and last month made my very first knit project: a scarf out of Red Heart Pomp-A-Doodle. I've since made 2 more knitted scarves. I'm ready to increase the complexity level.

What do you knit?

Everyone else: Please excuse the momentary thread sidetrack.

I'm a beginner knitter, and

I'm a beginner knitter, and so far I've only done hats. There used to be a gallery of my knitting projects, but it's gone now. I need to put up a new one I guess.

 

I first started knitting when I was pregnant, I made a hat for my baby. And then I lost the hat, so I made another one. And then I found the first hat, so there's 2. Then I didn't bother knitting for a long while, and started doing it more recently. I made a blue/brown hat, and I'm about halfway through a green hat.

Did you use circular needles for the hat or regular needles? I only know how to cast on, knit and cast off.

Here is the scarf I made:
