I mean how smart do you need to be to understand that is there is no god, and religion is simply a control construct, whose entire agenda is based on division and enslavement. A cynical tool based on our inherant fear of death.


Ah yes.... how did I not see that!!

The truth is that a bunch of primitive people living 4000 years ago devised the ultimate plan to control people for millenia, even now in the 21st century.

"hey, lets write a book to serve as a control construct to implement our master plan of global division and enslavement"

I'll take your words for it dude, because I know for a fact that you were present when man first conceived ideas involving God and the afterlife etc.

I got 27 right as well.

Messed up on:

*nirvana!! srlsy?? DOH!! I knew it too, and changed it at the last second...*facepalm*
I put it in Hinduism..my bad.
*faith alone (wait a minute. faith alone comes from both sides on ATS, doesn't it?)

*longest suffering was Job (although I should've thought 'the paiience of Job', instead I thought of Abraham)

*Maymonee-who-in-the-what-now???!!

*Indonesians are Muslims? who knew??

Not bad, I thought!
Although I'm embarrassed, really.

And the only reason I knew about Jonathan Edwards was because of the book I'm reading NOW -- the varieties of religious experience.

Ain't it funny how those silly Catlicks actuallybelieve what Jesus taught while here on Earth?

When he told this to the masses, hundreds walked away saying that this saying was too hard for them to follow. Jesus didn't offer any clarification or say "hey dudes, its just a figurative thing", he just let them go. If He was willing to let a large group of his followers walk away because of this "hard saying" it must have been an important element in the path to salvation.

That is a really bad website. One page per question, one page per answer, and each page takes long to load up all the flash and other ajaxy crap it has dotted around.

Nice to meet you Christian. Where did you learn this deep hatred for the Word of God?

Shamon.


I have no idea, you can channel Anthony Flew and get his 2 cents though. He'd know how smart one needs to be.

Now you know why we say they eat magical Jesus cookies. What's even more absurd is they buy them from the same outlet Protestants buy their wafers from.

Chew on that.

re my Q: who knew??
I guess you knew.

I thought they were Buddhists....connected to East Asia/China, etc. Oh well...I learned more about how much I don't know today!! I love those days!!

Who is Maimonides though? That name sounded like Greek to me...literally...Euripides, Thucydides, Basilides, Kallipides, Pleiades, etc...

oh wellides.

If you follow history the pagan gods/priests just changed geography and names when conquered by the next Empire to serve the new king, but the central themes are all the same from Babylon. They just get culturally adapted wherever they go. Still based on a father, a son, and a queen of heaven.

Bible calls it "Mystery Babylon".

Nope, They are Asian in race, but not in religion. Indonesians are also the most hostile for jihad too. Pakistan is in Asia too as well as the southern Russian states.

All Muslim .
