Yes thanking you for showing us more of the propaganda.
Do you have something more then just youtube vids?

Documented evidence and human experiences is not propaganda. The state of denial is not the atheistic way...the search for knowledge and understanding to the atheist should be paramount, no?

This one goes out to all my Atheist friends here on ATS.



"Let It Be"

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be. Yeah
There will be an answer, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

You do know the Mother Mary he refers to is his late mother, please tell me you didn't think it's the virgin Mary

According to Mr. McCartney, the song was referring to his late mother, whose name was Mary.

Yet, one is free to interpret the lyrics as one wishes, no?

Now, if that doesnt sum up christians, i dont know what does.

The author of the song, himself, has stated what the song is about. But people like you will misconstrue the lyrics to fit your own personal narrative.

I cant help but wonder, if you dont care about atheists, as you claim, why are you so obsessed with them?

Many songs are written with multiple lyrical meanings left open for the listener to interpret the way the want...I am not alone in suggesting that such is, could be, or may be the case.

The author of the song has flat out said what its about. Nothing left to interpretation. You CHOOSE to change the meaning.

here are some sites showing the historicity of the bible. You could say mass and it wont change anything. Now you are going against established Academia, you revisionist lovers of "truth" you....



Biblical Archaeology: Factual Evidence to Support the Historicity of the Bible

www.equip.org...-books-5

Top Ten Archaeological Discoveries of the Twentieth Century Relating to the Biblical World
biblicalstudies.info...


Archaeological and External Evidence for the Bible: An Outline
www.faithfacts.org...

Archaeology Confirms The Biblical Account
www.biblestudysite.com...

How Archaeology Proves the Bible
www.prevailmagazine.org...

Archaeology Confirms the Bible
amazingdiscoveries.org...


And I could continue, but honestly it would just be to further prove how wrong you all are when you say the bible is not a historical document.

That said, it is also a spiritual work and a moral guide. Like the i ching, Tao Te Ching , Hua Hu Ching, The Vedas, The Bhagavad Gita, The Puranas and any other sacred text...it must be looked upon with a thirst for knowledge. If not you will not understand it. No one is hiding anything from you, but the wisdom therein is not for fools. If you understand you will see the secret, the mystery. If not, you will be blind and lost in its words.

But hey what does most of your species and its history know....you guys are soooo great all on your own.


Wisdom, understanding, insight into human nature.....

pfft. I HURV DER SCIENCE!!!! DUURRRR YAY!

AND

MR Lennon would disagree with those who say that his music is not up for interpretation. Youre just being nasty with ricky. He is probably the nicest person you will never meet from I can tell. Thats why I say you deserve the nasty treatment right back at you...HARD. Dumbasses.

and therein lies the problem....interpretation...

to interpret, is to change the meaning of what you're interpreting....

this is the same argument i run into when having constitutional debates...people talk about interpretations of the constitution...there's no need to interpret it, it's written in plain english, and so's the song.

and what's even worse is that the author of the song specifically, and clearly spells out what he was on about in the song, and people still choose to twist it to fit whatever they want it to mean...

seriously man....

Theories of Constitutional Interpretation

law2.umkc.edu...

For people to cringe at constitutional interpretation shows how linear and closed minded they are, as well as how little they actually know about the constitution or any legal interpretation of law. Interpretation being indispensable for any intelligent use of any legal text...and essential for the proper function of a society which employs it....how lost they must be with a spiritual text that doesnt come with a "manual" besides our own mind and our own honesty with ourselves.
