Or you know what it really looks like? I suppose life is easier for people who just believe what their authority figures tell them. There are no first century fragments of the NT in existence…so you are lying…ignorant…stupid…. But Christianity is used as a club within American society. Maybe because believers are attempting to force down on non-believers their ideas.
Just to begin with. If indeed the bible is a message to mankind and not just a collection of texts from an already established religion. If there is very little internal inconsistency in the Iliad , does that make any of it true, or false for that matter?
Matthew, Mark, and Luke say the arrest, trial, and crucifixion of Jesus happened on Friday. John says it was all on Thursday. That is an internal inconsistency about the most important event in Christianity. Then one is killed for sins and the other is released into the wilderness, the way one goat is killed for the sins of the people while the other is released into the wilderness in Leviticus But the problem is that the ritual is for Yom Kippur, Atonement Day, which is about five months after Passover.
Then there is the Mocking of Jesus that follows the bit about Barabbas. The spelling in Greek for Barabbas and Carabbas is the same after the first letter of each. The youths accost Carabbas, taking him to the gymnasium, dress him in a door mat for a cloak, make a crown of papyrus leaf, give him a scepter made of papyrus, then act like he is a king. Mark invented the story from other literature but John alters it a little for theological reasons. So, yes, the day of the week is a small point compared to the whole story being completely contrived from other literature.
You run out of arguments and resort to infantile threats of imaginary retribution. Keep fighting, Greg. Do you spend your time arguing against the existence of Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy? When they are adults and still believe stuff like that, I do. Are you saying you do not try to convince adults who believe that Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are real that they are wrong? Or do your arguments against SC and TF strike too close to your religious beliefs? Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are not abusive wankers like your god who likes blood sacrifices and makes up shitty rules about sex and ownership of other people.
Never underestimate the violence associated with what was fairy belief in the past. Fairies were once gods and goddesses prior to the invasion of Christianity. Each sept…or clan…had their favourites, and were believed to help in battle. The oldest body of myths stemming from the Heroic Age is found only from the early medieval period of Ireland. As Christianity began to take over, the gods and goddesses were slowly eliminated as such from the culture.
Because Christians are blundering through American society damaging things. Can this possibly be new to you? I gave up voting in national elections 20 years ago. How am I messing up things for you, Bob?

Because Christians, and by extension the imaginary crap the believe, means no harm? Wise ta fuck up. Why are atheists angry? Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry—and are ready to do something about it? Armed with passionate outrage, absurdist humor, and calm intelligence, popular blogger Greta Christina makes a powerful case for outspoken atheist activism, and explains the empathy and justice that drive it.
Bound By Blood (Bound By Blood, #1) by Shane K.P. O'Neill
This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but also to believers who want to understand the so-called new atheism. Yet I have not heard of any atheistic foundation if truth that is certain, i. You might be imaginary, Amos. And you seem to be constructing a strawman. They are not great in number, but yes, they exist. But that is irrelevant. So pah! And I doubt you will, because you are too stupid, even after all this time, to realise that atheism deals with one thing, and one thing only. There is only one thing all atheists have in common, can ya guess what it is yet?
Anything else two atheists agree or disagree about, it has bugger all to do with what they believe about the existence of gods. Ah, solipsism. I might be imaginary. But you just run on along there sonny, since the comment you are failing to address was to show the ignorance of your own position. That is, your silly beliefs are a lot more detrimental to societies than belief in fairies, or Santa Claus, yet equal on evidence for the existence of all three. Hence the reason some atheists have decided to open their gobs to online arseholes and let them know the absurdity of their particular flavour of nonsense and why.
No, I first rejected it because there were too many problems to believe it is true, after all that I realized Christianity is a predatory religion. It is poison and a cancer on humanity. God is just a character in your play and has no more power than what you give him in your imagination. Ah, so you are a noble warrior against Christianity for the good of your neighbor and mankind? Hey, if my neighbor is selling poison in the guise of candy I would be wrong not to point it out.

I do not like paladins. Of course we reject the God of the bible.
How do you reconcile all the monstrous and immoral things he does as I pointed out above and I could have gone on. How do you deal with this violence from your God who is suppose to be all loving? You must be reading s different Bible then I have. The same God who suffered and died for sinners as Jesus Christ will also send those who do not repent and believe to everlasting punishment. Yeah your Mad Blood God of the desert will torture people for not thinking the right thoughts…we know…that is the poison.
Nobody will go to hell for not believing. They will justly go to hell for violating the moral laws of God. According to you and your religion everyone violates the moral laws of God…only those that think the right thoughts will be exempt…so yeah not believing is the only difference. Correct again.

A wonderful truth in light of the fact that we have all sinned and fallen short. All are judged—we will either face God in our own righteousness or the righteousness of Christ. If we do not repent and trust in Christ then we will face a holy judge who will punish us for our sins, as justice demands. Bob, we are all in a crashing aircraft. Christ is the parachute God freely offers. You have but to accept it and put it on.
Your God drowned the entire world, women, children, babies and animals who were innocent of any crime all because he fucked up with his own creation as written in your bible. He regretted his mistake and vowed to never do it again but failed to realize humans would always be, by nature, what he got all pissed about and wanted to drown. Some omniscient God, not. Why this threat of everlasting punishment?
Why not just live a good life without all this believing bullshit? Explain how this Jesus character had to go through a crucifixion to save me, because a fictional Adam ate from the tree of knowledge because a talking snake told him to do so? What is love, Tommy? If you are the end result of random mutations and evolution then love is nothing more than chemical reactions on your brain.
The quality of being just; fairness. The principle of moral rightness; equity. Conformity to moral rightness in action or attitude; righteousness. Sending someone to everlasting punishment is neither fair nor equitable.
