Don't rule out self-fulfilling prophecy. It may be a fact that people are actually working to carry out these prophecies thinking that they are doing the work of god. I believe whats in the bible is vague enough to apply to any time and keep the slaves screaming apocalypse. Where you may see love, I see fear.


Without God's wisdom no one can understand prophecy. Also, as time progresses on only then does the prophecy becomes clear, it is God's design to not allow men to force prophesy along. It all happens in God's time not man's.

Many people are existentially sane, and don't want to believe in fairytales, 'validated' by circle-argumentation.

Quote: ["Humans like to be defying and refuse to accept Christian teachings from the bible."]

Some humans like to defy and refuse rational approach, logic, science, pragmatism and social egalitarian principles. They are called elitist, evangelical, extremist christians.

Quote: ["They make excuses that the bible was just written by men,..."]

Is there any reason to believe otherwise?

Quote: ["that the bible is out of date,...]

Correct. 2000-2500 years.

Quote: ["that what is written in the bible is full of violence,..."]

It is.

Quote: ["and or contradiction."]

That too.

Quote: ["And that religion is the cause of all problems on the planet,...]

not correct. It's only amongst the top ten.

Quote: ["and if there is a God, why would he allow suffering."]

Yes. Why?


Quote: ["It reminds me of children who make up excuses for misbehaving, never wanting to accept responsibility for their own actions....."]

I'm considerably less condescending and categorical than you, so I'll not say what YOU remind ME of.

Quote: ["In fact God refers to us in that way."]

You mean: He allegedly refers to us that way.


Quote: ["Many cultures have tried other gods and other beliefs all in vain, never resulting in that permanent euphoria, utopia, or everlasting peace."]

Christianity had its go in Europe, Greenland and South America. That's what you want to bring to market?

Quote: ["We have been the prodigal children that God waits for patiently because of His perfect Love for His creation."]

How nice of him.

And the grand finale...preaching, prophecies, signs-and-wonders.

Please don't take any offense at my previous comment. I was just trying to point out that you have nothing to show for your opinion that God doesn't exist (just as I have no evidence that you are a bot). To make an empirical statement like that requires knowledge that neither of us has.

As we have no adequately complete proof that could explain all existence, you have to consider all theories (even those that propose a diety) based upon what is evidenced.

A truly balanced view is that we just don't know, anything else is opinion.

I've heard it said that the bottom line is this.., it doesn't matter whether, or not, the Bible is the truth.., its a pretty damn good way to live...

Regardless, I have found much truth in the Bible about life in general - about the past and about today. Why should I doubt what it says about the future?

I used to feel sorry for people who have no spirituality - stuck in a mono-dimensional, dull life. I don't anymore. Even those with room temperature IQs should be able to see that we are, at least, on the threshold of a qualitatively new historical era. And my gut tells me it ain't gonna be fun.

have you experienced a miricle? been riddled with cancer one day then up and walking the next? The power of faith and believing in something gives some people peace, and if it makes them a better person than its all worth it in the end. Its a PERSONS CHOICE and our FREEWILL in our world that lets people choose what they want to believe in. not some Tyrannical Dictorship that your ideal world is.

I gave you a star, No offense taking don't worry about it. But yes it is pretty much a fact that religion, and all the things that go with it was created..Can't be proven (unfortunately) because many people would benefit from a reality check.. I won't post my views on the subject any further in this thread.. out of not being in the mood to be flamed by "certain" members..but I think it is time a lot of people wake up and see the truth..YOU CAN'T REMAIN BLIND FOREVER..

I just find it ridiculous anyone would get so defensive over a imaginary being who's existence can not be proven..Sad..shows you what kind of world we live in.. sad how people can be so easily manipulated..

Hey, what can I say except that your entitled to live in the dark. You don't understand, you don't want to understand, you insist on looking the other way, and it's you choice. Nobody is holding a gun to your head and telling you that you have to accept God and His word. If you want to believe in vain, your most welcome to it.

You can say what you want about the forum that this thread is under, that doesn't give you the right to talk about your opinion on something that is completely off-topic from what the OP posted.

Made me look like a fool?
Better to be silent and thought of as a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt... you my friend have just exemplified that statement.

@OP - good work, and I like your view of these kinds of people like TechVampyre. I guess you can't really appreciate the sweet without the sour? I can respect other people's views, even the more negative ones, but I don't appreciate when people try to steal away the original subject of what you posted. I'll be checking back to see your responses and good luck!

~Namaste

Give me a break..My comment was on topic and relevant to the argument..Religion is a scam (that I can not prove to you) and when you look at it under this light..You see fast that this is relevant to the argument..as this would make the statements in the op irrelevant..Do I need to walk you through this?

And yes, sad for you to see it that way. Men want proof, well he was given proof many times. And every time he did not see the proof. When you wake up every morning unless your a shift worker well it can still work only you don't always see the Sun rise. The earth in it's self is a miracle, life is a miracle, having children is a miracle, it's all around you, but we take it for granted that tomorrow will always come.

I would just like to highlight one part from the endless diatribe:

Quote: ["We have actually reached the point where it is literally a crime to say (or even imply) that homosexuality is a mental disease or defect."]

Yes, isn't it to bad. Let's get theocracy back as quick as possible.

I totally agree, Christianity was created by the ancient Egyptians after they were overthrown by the Romans, they wanted to get back into power, they knew they didn't have a big enough army so used spirituality to do it, while all the while making people really pray to Amen Ra the sun god, that is why people say Amen after prayer, that is why they say "he has risen" meaning the sun, that is why SUNday the holy day is called SUNday and not Sonday, and many other things. Almost everything from the bible is from ancient Egypt history.

Your the one that started with all your empty talk. What's relevant of anything your saying, all I see here is another troll just trying to dispute something with no evidence to back it up.
