But it flies today. Due to our tolerant and accepting culture. (I wonder where that came from?)


Not from the Bible or from Christians. It came from free thinkers who questioned the status quo and refused to make religious values equal to secular values.


Jesus Christ (who is in the Bible, by the way...and who Christianity is named after) didn't preach tolerance and acceptance? Are you sure about that? Was is it some other religious figure who taught to turn the other cheek? Clothe and comfort your enemy?

How about Alexander the Great?


Although, Alexander was ruthless in eliminating rivals to the throne, his treatment of occupied territories was remarkably progressive and tolerant. Alexander forbid his troops from raping and pillaging, but, established new democratic governments, incorporating the local customs of the area. He allowed religious tolerance for the different religious groups.
www.biographyonline.net...


He lived in 356 BC, by the way. He was not a mythical figure, either, he was a real live historical figure.

I really do hope the day comes when the majority of people instead of the minority can just let # go and let others be as they are. I think people's beliefs are a highly personal matter and if someone uses a religion (or atheism which i count as a religion) as an excuse for poor behavior then blame the person, not the religion.

What I see happening between christians and atheists (as well as in most debate these days) is that each side becomes increasingly insular against the other and each side gets more proficient at building strawman arguments and tearing them down in front of their adoring audience. This just leads to contempt and possibly violence between both sides. It is counterproductive and dangerous and I know we can all be better than this.

It's too bad he died (or was probably assassinated by power hungry generals) before he could consolidate the empire he had created. If such a large portion of the world could have been unified in a kind of progressive constitutional monarchy like it sounds like he was going for the world would be much different, and quite possibly for the better.

So... you can respond with another trite, condescending, foolish comment, or you can drop your egotistical attitude and try to learn something.


Amazing and the whole time I thought you had the ego problem. I think you're putting way to much on something I didn't even write partner.

You need to simmer down.
Talk about judgmental.

I don't need to do anything. Do you have something to say regarding the content of my posts? Or are you just responding to give me your assesment of myself.... (as if I give a flying F***)

Keep your personal opinions about me and my character to yourself and we'll get along just fine... as I don't recall making any such statements regarding you. There's a difference between an opinion about what you say as opposed to an opinion about who you are.... try to at least learn the difference.

Now... back to your original comment where you posted one of those feel good memes that isn't founded in any sort of biblical teaching and certainly isn't scriptural. I say it's BS... proove me wrong based upon scripture otherwise STFU.

STFU ? Ya, that's gonna happen. Why would I even think about trying to prove someone wrong over such a trivial post. Ease up before you give yourself an aneurysm.

You're a funny guy.... and you seem to be overly concerned with my well being and not with the content of my posts. That's fairly typical of someone who has nothing to say.....

If what I say is so trivial to you, why bother responding? Your actions betray your true feelings. But by all means, continue to post nonsensical drivel and I'll continue to call you out.

Have a lovely evening...

Hmmm that is not being oppressive, that is more like stating an opinion about a belief without evidence. Being oppressive is when they try to say they will hurt you with hellfire.

Oh it's Fox News...


webster dictionary describes opression a bit different than you.
OPPRESSION
Oppression /Op·pres sion/ n. [F., fr. L. oppressio.]

1. The act of oppressing, or state of being oppressed.

2. That which oppresses; a hardship or injustice; cruelty; severity; tyranny.

3. A sense of heaviness or obstruction in the body or mind; depression; dullness; lassitude; as, an oppression of spirits; an oppression of the lungs.

It would seem any time a person tries to silence another by any means it is a form of oppression.

I am sure most Christians just like other religious people and athiests are hypocrites....how many times do we not 'practice what we preach?'

It is imho part of human nature.

You are right. We all are. The title was merely to engage a rigorous argument. I have respect for all views of life. I just dont want people to feel oppressed about what they think.

Maybe it's because atheists are responsible for the largest mass genocides in history in the shortest amount of time. Stalin and Mao together killed 170 million. Moreover atheists for some reason universally attack and are outraged by christianity, often ignoring other religions. I feel this focus is likely demonic and hence proves that the christian religion is the correct one.

I honorably accept your challenge.

In religion I have studied the Bible, Qur'An, Torah, the Tao Te Ching, Buddhism, Judaism, Catholicism, Christianity, Baptism, the Jehovah's Witnesses, and the Church of Scientology to name a few.

In science I have studied Biology, Evolution, Physics, Quantum Physics, String Theory, and Multiple Dimension Theories.

Pick your poison

Okay, the joke is lost on you. Would suggest that you make your next course of study Douglas Adams.

Exodus-

"12:29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
12:30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead."

God killed more.

History is full of people who killed others over religious beliefs. That is the nature of humans, not the result of teaching that religion is a falsehood.
