I try, believe me I try to look at all of this with an open mind. But when I read some posts on peoples belief in God and wanting to please him, and that he sent his son who died on the cross, and rose from the dead, and could walk on water, God parted oceans and all the other stuff in the bible, I just find it, for lack of a better word, silly.
I find myself laughing that someone in today's date and age would believe such a thing, given so much proof that esp Christianity(not to pick on it, but its the major religion of the west) is just recycled stories and rituals from other religions. And just because and ONLY BECAUSE white ppl have adopted it as thier religion, it has become the "end all to be all" of religions.
I just find religious ppl so arrogant and sure of themselves that something exists, which by thier own mouth is strictly faith. There is no proof that there is a God and there is no proof there is not! It just boggles my mind when christians recite bible stories and events as if there were there, when there is ABSOLUTLY zero proof any of this ever happended. If this was any other story, any other cicumstances any other religions, mods would have stepped in long ago and said "this story has already been debunked in the following thread".
Matthew 22 (King James Version)
37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38This is the first and great commandment.
39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
What is your goal? Do you want Christianity eliminated? Name one Christian Church in Western Democracies that has as its goal the elimination of all non-Christians. Or, do they just peacefully reside along side others? Atheists in the US are a tiny minority of 3 to 5% of the population and yet Atheist are constantly in the news and very vocal about their opposition to the existence of religion. I've never seen a Christian in the news calling for the elimination of Atheists. Which side is unreasonable I wonder?
That is your personal choice but please don’t bash Christianity or lump us all together as radicals.
Haha, yeah right, NOW we think that athiests want us all dead. Please, who is flying off the handle?
