There is only one God and the other gods were the fallen
angels pretending to be gods.
There is a hole in our spirit that only God can fill.

The main problem today is now I get preached at by Atheists and the religious. I beg for the day it was only the religious and not 20 fadora hat wearing edge lords ranting when explaining its possible God exists.

Atheists and the religious are way more alike then they realize.

What a load of snip!
I have never had an atheist knock on my door and try to convert me. Nor have I ever had an atheist accost me in public, or leave a tract in my bathroom, or on my car. No atheist has ever sent me a letter asking for money or to come to their next service on Sunday. No atheist has ever preached at one funeral I've ever been to. No atheist has ever protested my business because I do work for gays. I could go on...

Online is a different matter, because all religious and non-religious alike can have their say, and argue with one another to their hearts content. But even online, you'll find the religious greatly out number the non-religious in preachers and proselytizers.


I live in the Bible belt and can recall one instance where I was preached at outside a bojangles trying to get a biscuit and twice with a Jahovahs witness.

I live in a college town and have gotten into unwanted conversations with Atheists and even close friends that rant and rant and rant about Christians and history and why God is stupid and that religious people are stupid Jesus is fake etc.

Ive lived in the south for 15 years and find it really hard the believe these exaggerated stories but not saying they don't happen. This is all coming from an agnostic/atheist btw who grew up in a Christian home.

Just admit it atheists preach too and the internet is their church

but felt compelled to tonight after reading a few too many accounts of worldwide blindfolded actions in the name of religion.


It depends on what you focus on - lately all I'm seeing is societal collapse, economic doom, and religion being used as an excuse so we don't look to closely at how the Elite are robbing us blind.

Behind any religious war there comes first an economic need. ie use religion to create fervor and then you have a compliant believer thinking going to war is for a higher moral good when in effect you're just being used to enrich others.




Religion shouldn't exist


do away with the reptilian ego mind thats always craving and in fear then you have no need of religion and of religious/state control.

What does: 'godless minds are the solution for unity of thought and the elimination of discourse in the world' even mean?

I did not mean to appear as though I was talking down to you and apologize for that impression. Will try now to keep this discussion simple.

Let’s start with your conception that – Quote “ I do not understand why so many countries are bound by religious laws. In this computer age, actual laws in countries are dictated by things that cannot be proven - why? – Unquote

This leads me to understand that you believe that this age of computers is somehow far superior then other preceding ages and that the world should perhaps reevaluate its civil laws and negate or reform its existing laws.

There are not two countries that exist today with the same laws and to add to that is the fact that most all countries that exist today have their own conceptions of the degrees of right vs wrong.
Most all countries today have civil law based upon the needs of keeping society as an accepted humanity. There are a few countries that allow religion to rule their nation but these are very few and mostly of the same basic origin. Nevertheless these same cultures do change their civil by the demands.

The United States is not controlled by the ten commands of Moses. The laws of this country were gathered from the seven laws of order in addressing a civilization. These seven laws are the basic laws of keeping sanity in a civilization and have nothing to do with religion. They are accepted as laws of behavior and not of gods or any deity. As the 13 colonies withdrew from Britain and its state religion, the seven laws of humanity were included in the laws of Britain but the penalties of those laws were not as severe as the same laws were in Britain.

Now, what does computer age have to do with laws of behavior in any age? Are you saying that this age of which we enjoy now is superior to past ages of humanity? When I see the news reports of this day it looks as though we have no conception of what a number one civilization should be. Liars, thieves, adulterers, murderers, wars, and such are the behavior patterns today. Disrespect with drugs, rioting and hatred is rampage in the entire world today in your computer age and somehow you blame this on religion? So you are saying that the mythical religions caused this destruction and somehow if we can get these religions erased that these behavior problems will improve or simply vanish? Do you think that civil unrest is due to religion or politics or a divided percentage of both? Are you aware of the fact that religion is on the decline and behavior problems are on the rise today? Do a search on that and then reevaluate what you are thinking.

Ironically enough, anicent religious institutions were actually the first science committee s. I think the a cult of Hathor worshipped a light bulb and Sekhmet an arc flash.

A book an a gun are both harmless, all the while apparently books have caused more damaged. Just look at the communist manifesto.

Also being mad at fictional, omnipotent is pointless...mean it already won.

What really gets to me is the cult worship of the god of climate change. The green goddess of rationing resources by elite worshipers of the cult demanding that we all adhere to their cult of not eating meat because of cow flatulence. The Green cult of Agenda 21. And it IS a religion, just not the one that you hate. Secular humanism is also a religious cult.

Actually not all religions. Google cargo religions ; that's what I think humanity is.
I totally agree with you on everything else. Poor people used to fund the church because they were scared of going to hell. That's brainwashing.

Yes! ...and I might add science is somewhat like a religion itself with the prohets being people like Stephen Hawking and the like...who are just as clueless as the rest of us imo...all they have are theories based on largely complicated mathematical equations that involve infinities canceling out infinities and so forth....I don't think the universe bends to fit into these people's equations...and I don't think just cause they paid more for their education they should be considered any smarter than the rest...fact is no one knows....and as far as the big bang goes...nothing from nothing leaves nothing...why can't it be that simple ...there are several things the scientists that are put up on a pedestal by most atheists fail to explain...like they can't tell how the moon came to be caught in Earth's gravity...in fact they'll tell you it's too large to be caught by Earth's gravity....hell they can't tell what gravity is...and I've yet to get an explanation as to why the umbra or shadow during a solar eclipse is only 70 miles wide when the moon is supposedly 2500 miles wide....when a huge cloud passes in front of the sun it doesn't cast a shadow on my lawn the size of a basketball...wtf!....

There will always be religion of some sort. Humans are hard wired for religion. Just look at how the "non religious" worship at the alter of climate change, veganism, psuedo-science, self worship, etc...

I did see some smarter than me people discussing it on a more science based subforum a while back.

At the bottom of the page that you linked to was a link to an update There Probably Won't Be A “Mini Ice Age” In 15 Years Evidently, the story writer contacted the astronomer scientist for clarification.

Since our article yesterday about how reduced solar activity could lead to the next little ice age, IFLScience has spoken to the researcher who started the furor: Valentina Zharkova. She announced the findings from her team's research on solar activity last week at the Royal Astronomical Society. She noted that her team didn't realize how much of an impact their research would have on the media, and that it was journalists (including ourselves) who picked up on the possible impact on the climate.
. . .
However, Zharkova ends with a word of warning: not about the cold but about humanity's attitude toward the environment during the minimum. We must not ignore the effects of global warming and assume that it isn't happening. “The Sun buys us time to stop these carbon emissions,” Zharkova says. The next minimum might give the Earth a chance to reduce adverse effects from global warming.

Have you noticed that neither one of those I F#cking Love Science stories is dated? When the heck were they written? Four years ago? Five, 10?

I take undated religious texts with a grain of salt.

Cargo cults often develop during a combination of crises. Under conditions of social stress, such a movement may form under the leadership of a charismatic figure. This leader may have a "vision" (or "myth-dream") of the future, often linked to an ancestral efficacy ("mana") thought to be recoverable by a return to traditional morality. This leader may characterize the present state as a dismantling of the old social order, meaning that social hierarchy and ego boundaries have been broken down.


There is a new cargo cult a brewing. Led by the Acton Institute and bolstered by Steve Bannon. see Steve Bannon and U.S. ultra-conservatives take aim at Pope Francis

How can the moon cast a shadow on the earth that is 70 miles wide when the moon is over 2,000 miles wide and 248,000 miles away?

It's a matter of perspective. Many artists and architects are aware of it.

a reply to: pthenaThe Pope is outwardly socialist and has made statements trying to tell a sovereign nation (the US) what to do politically ie how to handle the immigration issue. He is a stooge for the One World Government seated in the UN and promotes those positions. This is the reason our Founding Fathers did not want the imposition of a State religion. However now we have some atheist trying to take “in God We Trust” off the dollar bill. aclj.org... yfb_con-god_typ-PT&utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Petitions&utm_content=God%20We%20Trust%20Petition,Constitution&sf101216899=1&fbclid=IwAR27NOSvZ3h4do DtY9kCF7IyJHon-MHQWvRWupUe0Gn_ZFabYaqGPo4NbRg
Socialism is a godless cult by the way.
Historically, since the communist revolution began, the communists tried to eliminate the churches. They did it in Russia and China destroyed the Buddhist temples in Tibet. Why would governments do this? Because Marxism is a godless cult. Karl Marx said that religion was the opiated of the masses. I know a woman from Brazil who said that Marxism was infiltrating the church. Since socialism is a bridge to the more radical communism, it’s not all that surprising to have the Roman Catholic Church, the Vatican, taken over by socialists like Pope Francis. Here’s a good read if you want truth to the matter. www.frontpagemag.com...
On this next article, I find particularly interesting the Pope’s “ magisterium” on Climate Change. turningpointproject.com...

No wonder the OP thinks that religion shouldn't exist. Of course organized religion becomes institutionalized, and yet another means to pressure society for change, and to be infiltrated by vested interests. The Christians seem to have been victims of infiltration from very early on.

Galatians 2:4 "This was because of the false brothers secretly brought in, who stole in to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage;"

Pretty difficult to work out the whose who sometimes.

Acton Institute and David Horowitz: True religion = free market capitalism and libertarianism. The rich must get richer so that they, and they alone should dictate who receives charity and who should not.

Acts 4:32 "The multitude of those who believed were of one heart and soul. Not one of them claimed that anything of the things which he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common." -undated source -

Pretty strange.



He is a stooge for the One World Government seated in the UN and promotes those positions. This is the reason our Founding Fathers did not want the imposition of a State religion.


So what is better,

" support for Israel is an expression of Americanism, and it is the responsibility of our government to advance policies that reflect Americans’ strong desire for a relationship with no daylight between America and Israel. We recognize Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state" (2016 Republican Platform)

or

"Support for the Vatican is an expression of Americanism..."

They're both just countries right? They're both Christian right? Oh, wait. Never mind.


A Gallup survey in 2015 determined that 65 percent of Israelis say they are either "not religious" or "convinced atheists", while 30 percent say they are "religious". Israel is in the middle of the international religiosity scale, between Thailand, the world's most religious country, and China, the least religious.
