I wonder about that myself.
I know I say some mean things but it physically pains me to do so and I contemplate it for hours afterwards in fear for my own soul. I have to wonder when it seems people get some sort of enjoyment from being mean. I don't think that is right.

1. First of all, explain how you made your HHO reactor...that just sounds to cool not to discuss.

HHO Reactor
(Read all the way through the thread, I have made a lot of improvements to it since the original design. The latest model is my own design)

2. What happened to your first wife?

First wife, got a divorce after one year of marriage. Second wife, lasted 29 years, she go too greedy, and was going out with too many men. I divorced her.

3. Who is this "Divine Father and Mother? Is that pagan Wicca stuff?

Our Divine Father and Mother is our God and our Goddess, the ones who created our Spirits and placed them into these corporal carbon based human bodies.

4. The reason I said you were in an self created Hell is because you are always trying to disprove Christian theology.....which means you either fear it, or hate it. Either way, you are bothered by God. Which means you live with this fear. Care to explain why?

Christianity was simply made up, much like Islam, to instil fear in people, and keep them under control, and keep them fighting and killing each other. The Hell you speak of originated with Gehenna, or Sheol and Hell - A Tool of Oppression, was invented, as a tool of fear. It works quite well, too, for the ignorant and those in need of something to cling to. Christians are always attempting to "Convert" anyone they can, I suppose because of this inbred fear, the more the merrier, I suppose. Conversion is simply a nice word for brainwashing, friend. By inducing guilt and acute apprehension and by increasing the tension, the sinners break down and submit, too afraid to do anything else. Once a preacher, cult leader, manipulator or authority figure creates the brain phrase to wipe the brain-slate clean, his subjects are open to new programming. New input material, in the form of suggestions, can be substituted for their previous ideas, and will eventually take the place of even basic logic. Now another of you recently told me to "pray to the Lord." Lets us define the word "Lord." Pay close attention to the bold text words.
1. a person who has authority, control, or power over others; a master, chief, or ruler.
2. a person who exercises authority from property rights; an owner of land, houses, etc.
3. a person who is a leader or has great influence in a chosen profession: the great lords of banking.
4. a feudal superior; the proprietor of a manor.
5. a titled nobleman or peer; a person whose ordinary appellation contains by courtesy the title Lord or some higher title.
So, you see, a "Lord" is a "person." A "Lord" Lords over his Slaves.
Now, my position is this. I am not a human being, per se, I am first and foremost a Divine Spirit, who happens to reside within a human body at this time. This is not a permanent situation. I have no Lord, and no Master, and I am a Sovereign Spirit, that means equal to any other Spirit, notwithstanding. I bow to no man, no so called deity, and no Spirit posing as a God. It took me a very long time to get here, and here I shall stay. This is why I feel so sorry for those who supplicate themselves to an unknown and untested persona in the hopes of a ticket to a heaven described in a book whose authors are unknown and un-authenticated.

The Afterlife, that which you define as one of two places, is not what you think, or have been taught it is. How do I know? I have visited there, and have spoken to several relatives and friends who have went before. It is the 4th dimension of time and space. It is much like the Nexus in Star Trek "Generations." A non-linear, 4th dimensional, temporal continuum - in which reality appears to reshape itself in fulfillment of a person's innermost wishes, and in it whatever one thinks of, becomes reality, in an instant. Think of a Coke, one will appear in your hand, ready to drink. I was shown this very clearly by someone you probably would not even believe existed.

I have been able to see the dead for as long as I can remember. My mother, bless her heart, tried to convince me they were demons, but I knew better. She also had other names for me too, names like anti-christ, demon spawn, and satan's child. I was severely abused as a child with this drivel, that is one reason I spent 8 years of my life researching Christianity and every other religion, the Bible, Koran, Talmud, and every other religious text or writing I could get my hands on. Do this, and research the root words and compare everything, and one comes to where I am. (check U2s)

I will rephrase my question so as not to "offend" you so you can leave the mods out of this:

Why do you think being "mean" is wrong? Since when do we have to be pansies if you are a Christian? I look forward to your reply, as my next post will show over 5 examples in the Holy Bible where Jesus Christ Himself was "mean".

Alright, I see your point of view now. Thanks for explaining it and I read your post twice just to make sure I got your position. I agree with you on a lot of what you said as well.

The sovereign spirit thing made great sense....but did you ever think about who gave you that spirit? Surely there is a Lord of all spirits, someone who created them all, right? I guess that would be the divine couple for you, whereas it is the Holy Father of the Bible for me.

==You know where you learned about your Divine mother and father? It was no doubt from a book and personal experiences.
==You know where I learned about my Holy Father? It was from a Book, as well as a personal relationship and experiences (the new birth). How then are we that different? The afterlife will prove who is right in the end, as I doubt either of us can prove otherwise.

As for Hell, I have researched it quite well, and it is not the grave or sheol. They are different words...spelled differently. They are not the same and Jesus Christ explained what Hell was perfectly in Luke 16. Now that is good enough for me. Who am I to say Jesus didn't know what He was talking about? I am not that arrogant....or brave. (many bible scholars however, are...the fools)

I'll look into the HHO, I plan on doing something similar.

P.s. sucks about your previous wife's....I would have divorced her too.

I admitted to being mean myself but being mean as a form of entertainment shows a character flaw, to me.
What I was referring to was what looked like racial slurs and a hateful sounding reference to his religion.
Now I say things about anti-christ but that is a rather narrowly defined term as I use it and it has to do with substituting a fake religion in place of Christianity. This is something engaged in, by definition, by people using the label, Christian, to identify themselves and would not be, for example, something practiced by Muslims. Now there could have been such people in the past who engaged in a rather sever form of making converts but that is not something I am active in trying to suppress or expose as something I devote my time and energy to. There are bigger threats, for example, the US who has thousands of nuclear weapons and another so-called country in the Middle East who seem to be armed with every weapon they could possibly want, and that particular "country" is not a Islamic state.

Friend, the Mods are not me, they do what they do for the sake of keeping this site as free and open as it is. It was not my post that was deleted, after all. I don't really know what you mean by that? Was it that I said to be a Devout Christian means one is weak, and needs something bigger than they are? Well, friend, if the shoe fits.

I can show you many things, like that the Biblical God Yahweh is in fact a Dragon, and that Jesus lied through his teeth on several occasions, one in particular when he said, "ask anything in my name and I will do it, even move a mountain." (not exact words, but you get my meaning. How many times has Christians asked, in Jesus name, for things that never came to pass? If you wish to debate this, be forewarned, and read some of my other posts first. I am very well versed on the KJV Bible, and biblical history.
Here is one example of things found in the KJV Bible:

Ever heard of the Leviathan?

Here is a description of the Leviathan:

"Out of his [Leviathan] nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth." (Job 41:20)

And here is description of Yahweh, the God of the Old Testament:

"There went up a smoke out of his [Yahweh] nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it." (Psalm 18:8, 2 Samuel 22:9)

"Leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; the dragon that is in the sea." (Isaiah 27:1)

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world [through Christianity]: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (Revelation 12:9)

This is taken directly from the King James Bible, I take it you have read it? does this mean anything to you? Here is your Satan, the God of the Bible OT, and the Dragon often talked about in the same book. Further evidence:

The only graven image/idol Yahweh ever permits is that of a "fiery flying serpent", obviously his personal image, This image has supernatural powers, and Yahweh allows it to be freely worshipped in Solomon's temple. As soon as the idol is broken, disaster befalls Israel.

He is specifically described spewing fire from his mouth and smoke from his nostrils, exactly like the dragon like Leviathan that the Bible states he "plays" with.

Some Christian Gnostics also state Yahweh is a Dragon in their scriptures.

As for Jesus, let's face it, he was a man, he bled, and he died. Not at the cross, now, but years later. His remains have been found, back in 1980,
a Discovery Channel Film of the find can be watched here:

Jesus can be taken two ways. Either he was a GOD who became a man, something I dispute, in which case we would be forced to worship him, or he was a Man who became a God, something I wholeheartedly agree with, in which case we must follow him, and become Gods and Goddesses ourselves. As I said, I would be happy to debate you, but please look at the others who tried to convert me into their cult
first. Cheers, Auto

Thank you for your candor. I would be happy to tell you how I found out about the Divine Father and Mother. I looked deep inside myself, and they were there, waiting for me to find them. As for books, I am an avid reader, I have over 10,000 books under my belt. I am the only one who can check out as many books as I want at out local library, I am reading three books right now. My Spirit is them, that they are my Spirit, and yours, and everyone's. Earth is a school for spirits, so that we can become as Gods and Goddesses and go forth and create on our own. I have walked the Ether many times, and astral travelled to a great many places not of this world.

Why do races of men not from the tribe of the Hebrews place importance on them? Wouldn't it be like a modern descendant of the Hebrews to follow a religion from the Cherokee tribe?

Those laws are a starting point to learning more about God. God never said he couldn't or wouldn't be anyone else's God other than the Israelites. Pre-flood Enoch the sethite believed in him and walked with him and he wasn't hebrew, Ibrim (Abram/Abraham) wasn't an Israelite and he chose to believe in and serve Yah. It's not what tribe or peoples you came from its about believing in him. There are cases throughout the entire bible where God showed mercy and spared and considered righteous people that were not from the people he chose to spread his message.

When the jews rejected the messiah he gave the task of spreading his word to the christian gentile peoples until he is done taking for himself a people from the gentile nations and upon that moment he shall turn again to the Israelites and finish their story. Despite what many think, not all Israelites are jews. Being a "jew" came from Judaism which originated from the tribe of Judah (Yahuda) back in those days being jewish was a religious thing, whereas nowadays its used to refer to that particular ethnicity.

Because I don't think it is my duty to kill Muslims?
You seem to believe that Jesus is going to hand you a sword to go out and hunt down and slay those who God hates. That would be your definition of a christian and I admit to not being of that persuasion.
