Atheism is just silly.
That is your opinion - but please do not call anyone that subscribes to a different belief or their belief silly.
That is exactly what I am talking about.
I do not like the I am right, I know it all, I have the answers and you, if you do not believe as I do are "silly".
For all you know, and from my research and knowing a world famous archeologist (who was also a ex priest) - we could have and probably were created
and spilled out of a gene splicer.
Our friend, said, and he actually got to see some of the dead sea scrolls, were mistranslated..............many books are also (cough cough)
missing and or removed from "The Holy Bible".
XXXX said, one example was in every single place the word God or Lord was mentioned - one letter, just one letter was removed....................the
Gods / Lords.
One simple letter removed or not translated makes for a entire whole new meaning.
Now with books removed, missing, and you can bet there are things down in the Vatican Vault we cannot even imagine - that are hidden away for a
To keep humanity humble, in his/her place.
Sorry, the big white haired man in the clouds, probably doesn't exist.
Again, you have your core beliefs, they will never change because you were indoctrinated from cradle to grave.
If your beliefs give you comfort and make you behave - good.
But again, please do not call anyone that believes differently than you silly.
I am so tired of religious people (both Christians and Muslims) trying to shove their religion down everyone else's throat.
My own belief is Homosapiens were created by possibly another higher technologically developed group of beings and we, each of us is a rain drop and
"God" is the ocean.
I have read "The Bible" from Genesis
The Book of Genesis (from the Latin Vulgate, in turn borrowed or transliterated from Greek γένεσις,
meaning "origin"; Hebrew: בְּרֵאשִׁית, Bereʾšyt, "In [the] beginning"), is the first book of the Hebrew Bible (the Tanakh) and the
Christian Old Testament.
to the book of Revelation six times.
Also, the Gnostic Bible and the Book of Enoch, each three times.
A really good book I highly suggest if you wish to really broaden your horizons is The Gnostic Bible, edited by Willis Barnstone & Marvin Meyer (834
pages). Published by Shambhala Boston & London 2003.
Humanity has been controlled and manipulated, we have been fooled BIG TIME. We have the potential within us all to greatness.
The Gnostic Bible mentioned above was really a very enlightening read for me, really a mind blowing read.
Know what is in front of your face and what is hidden from you will be disclosed - Gospel of Thomas 5
With each king, queen or victor the history, including our religious history gets rewritten, books added or removed, vital information hidden from
And this has been going on for a very long time.
Did you know that according to some African legends, at one time there was no moon - it one day, suddenly appeared????
How do any of us reading this really know what the heck really really happened?
Faith..............that is not denying ignorance.
The average person watches way to much TV, plays their violent video games, drinks, yacks on their cells and is plugged into their ipods and DOES NOT
READ OR RESEARCH.
Anyone being forced to resign and I've watched how management does this, it's a "you resign and we play nice with you or you don't resign and we will
make your life such a living hell and eventually get you on some mistake because you are only human and all humans do not come "error free" we will
then be able to legally fire your dumb hiney and you will then have a really bad mark on your record/resume." Companies have teams of some of the
best lawyers and when one sues (good luck) you will need money and prepare to wait and wait and wait and wait..............companies rule the globe,
not Presidents, not Prime Ministers - companies and banks and a very select, elite few families that are all interconnected since the beginning of
Big choice and again, if you are a atheist, do not, I repeat, do not antagonize the Christians because I have found them to be almost as intolerant as
This is why it is so very important that we never ever never never mix Church / Religion with State / Government.
How about when Henry the VIII changed England over to Protestant because he desperately wanted to bed Anne Boleyn, the Catholics got their heads
lobbed off, hung or burned alive. - and all because one simple man wanted to have intimate relations with a woman, in other words, a very dramatic
change in English History because a King wanted to ____ a woman that was determined (and smartly manipulative) that require he put the wedding ring on
her finger before any nookie could commence.
When Bloody Mary, Henry VIII's first daughter turned England back over to Catholic again, the Protestants got their heads lobbed off, hung or burned
And all Pagans and Earth Religions have, for the most part always been fair game for both the Christians and Muslims to torture and kill - ask the
American Indians and Africans that refused to "convert".
Now in any Islamic Country if you do not adhere to Muslim Laws, you run a real risk of meeting a very unpleasant and premature death.
In Africa (and even in many homeless shelters) the deal is no prayer / sermon / God worship - no meal.
Most people here in America of African and American Indian descent have no idea of their true heritage, their Earth Religion which is basically truly
spiritual in nature. Most have embraced the Christian religion of the European White Man that either enslaved them or almost wiped them out.
Hundreds of millions of people throughout Human History have been tortured and murdered all in the many names of "God"....................and we never
seem to learn.
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?” ~ Epicurus (Greek philosopher, BC 341-270)
