anyway, yeah, both sides refuse to listen to anyone because one extreme acts on faith and the other acts on cold hard facts and nothing else.


more like anti-christian propaganda and thought pattern modifacation.


You got it in one!

I avoided these examples for such a long time because the list of, "anti-Christian thought pattern modification", to be found in popular culture, is all but endless and choosing the best of too many examples would take years of fulltime work.

What child growing up on The Simpsons, will want to be a Christian, like Ned Flanders, who despite being a wonderfull charactor is still the accepted butt of everyones jokes, even Homer's?
Where as Lisa, the super smart 'conscience' of the town, uses her intellect to choose to become a Buddist and gets to hang out with superstar Beatle for her choise.

Those who say they can't see the constant portrayel of Christians as 'dumb' and atheists as intelligent, are, IMHO, either deaf and blind, or "liers on a mission".

Well.. If you call hundred's of year's of the sun orbiting the earth as intelligent...

Took the church 450 year's to aplogogize to Galileo for their screw up.

The Simpson's portrays Flanders as the extreme Christian, and Rev. Lovejoy as a more temperate Christian who tries to show Christianity in a more modern, socially active, light. Where Flanders denies his children experiences that would allow them to grow as people, Lovejoy fights bloodthirsty baboons bare handed.

I think the overall message here is to give up the old ways of Christianity, and allow for the growth of the religion. No more inquisitions, witch trials, cross burnings, and believing that anyone who doesn't think like you is going to burn in hell for eternity, and that they deserve it.

Produkt, you and all the others on this thread, who insist on repeating the same old lies and refusing to address the countless failings of secular and other beliefs, are proof of the conspiracy.


i'm lost as to why 'suzy ryan' and others keep on insisting on a conspiracy. forget about people writing on this board, because christianity is not solely targeted. sure there's harsh opinionated words said against it, but there also is against rational science explanations and evolution. the only difference is, is that there 'is' a christian movement trying to push evolution and science out of the school in favor of ID and christian science, which they're forcing in. it's even gotten to the point where there are christian summer schools and camps where christian parents send their children to brainwash them of all the information they learnt from the passed year.

whatever happened to the seperation of church and state, yet still have prayers and forced christian science and ID in schools, and on your money it says 'in god we trust'. it wouldn't be so bad, yet we live in a 'democracy' that's so diverse with religion that it's unfair to have 'christian' prayers in school and 'christian' science over other relgions...you know it's not just christian children and atheists that go to schools. you have the general term for the monotheistic christian god on your money...it's not 'in allah we trust', or 'in buddha we trust'.

so if there's any sort of conspiracy going on, it's on the christians behalf and not the atheists. you've already got prayer in school, take your kids to christian summer camps to brainwash them with 'christian' science, you want ID taught on the same level as other scientific topics, you've got your god on every bill printed in america...what more do you want?...and you have to expect people to speak up against you because all of that above is wrong. in god we trust shouldnt be on your money, christian prayer shouldnt be done in schools in a mass classroom of diverse religion, atheists and so on, ID shouldn't be taught in a science classroom because it's not a 'science'...and this isn't being anti-christian...this is just being rational.

i think what 'Rasobasi420' had to say, pretty much summed up your comment. not sure if you realised but the 'simpsons' still go to church. marge is the only one who seems to enjoy on any level, but they all still go. dispite what you say about lisa, on one episode the end of the world of something, the flanders you see going up to heaven, and the 'LISA' starts to get pulled up...but homer's like 'oh no you don't'. in the same way marge thinks she's doing what is best for her kids, ned flanders is also doing the same, except in a more strict way. in america you will find mother's like marge and families pushed to go to church, and you will also find a ned flanders with cable, with 200 channels all blocked out.

and sure homer takes advantage of ned's generocity etc, but on many episodes homer is shown maybe to be jealous of ned, for example ned has a pretty ripped body on one episode and all the women seem to adore him for it, and on another homer sees ned with his family all happy and wishes his own family was like that.

Don't know, how many? I can tell you that they could not have been following Christ as Christians are told by him to do as he says which is: "Love your neighbor" and "Love your enemy". Do you see a difference between those who follow these words and those who do not? While you're at it, how many Christians have been killed for their beliefs? I can tell you 25,000 people that believe the same thing I did were killed in France in a raid while they were sleeping shortly after the crusades.

There are two things I got out of what Suzy said. First, is that there's more to the story and it's necessary to read on to see what happens. Second, we've reviewed this topic before on this thread so being repetitious is really a waste of time. I know I'm not going to say what I've said before because I'm interested in progress, not bickering.

What was the reason given for the dismissal? I think everyone here will agree that if the reason was because you were not Christian than yes that is wrong and is discrimination. Per the Bible, in James chapter 2 it states favortism is forbidden. S/He should know that. As far as your wishing of misfortune to that person, that's not helping your afterlife positioning. We all have our opportunities for improvement though, just trying to be a helpful sibling.

This is a pointless discussion.

This is just mindlessly bash christianity and pretend that is legit.

See these atheist and agnostics have had anti-christian(NWO media brainwash loop) for as long as they born.They hate christianity because it doen't fit thier selfish ambitions.(I wanna kill innocent children,i wanna kill termanally ill patients ,the old,the poor, the mentally challenged,mentally ill,ect ect.)

Christian reality goes agianst the NWO's movitives so guess what they smear,they spread FUD,misinfo,halftruths,cherrypick,demonize and suppress christian reality.

Its not really the brainwashed anti-christian persons we should be worrying about but the New Age misinfo agents implanting pro-NWO thought patterns,doctrines and desired responses.

Instead of god (maybe if I add the name and in bold you'll figure out who I'm talking about rather then playing dumb to evade the question like a good christian) acting the way he did in the bible, killing all sinner's, having man kill them etc... Why can't god do as he preach's or why can't he just come down and say hey yo, wut up G, why you tripping. Does he really feel the need to say he's all forgiving/all loving and then act the opposite? And expect people to follow him for that?

With all his mighty power to create and murdur people, he can't just pop in and say hey guy's clean up your act?

Again, just so you don't feel the need to evade the question again, I'm talking about god, not you.

This recent effort (relatively speaking) was an attempt to communicate with mankind on our level. It seems to have worked well since many are now listening. Still, there are disconnects.

You were addressing me and said "guy" which is not the same as God. Then you went on to talk about His followers so it sounded like you were still talking about His followers. Pardon again for the misunderstanding. There's no attempt on my part to evade or decieve. If there is, report me because it's against the Terms and Conditions to lie and against the "deny ignorance" policy to evade.

How would that be received? It isn't likely that we'd just trust him. Instead, the more likely thing would be to demand a lengthy lab examination by scientists from all over, that was recorded and broadcast live, including lots of inquisitive personal requests for proof. That wouldn't be enough for us though, and a series of interviews by media stars like Oprah, Leno, Letterman, Springer, etc. would follow.
Even then, many people would be skeptical, anyway.
Plus, the point of this whole exercise in creating the universe would become meaningless.
