What gives you absolute certainty there is no creator? Asking about some other "god" doesn't answer this question for you.
Go into a Chicago downtown neighborhood. Go to Detroit at night. They're just as dangerous.
meh. I have less hard feelings than many in that regard. I keep busy enough fighting with my colleagues and friends. :) I bear little ill will for anyone. I just like to argue.
Surely not ..... The children killer will be punished as much as they deserve .. especially when they lie on Him that He told them to kill suckiling babies like the zionists do
And they say 3 times the charm..........I guess they lied.
As if you care, you lefty fake!
Give me one reference.
I do not meet 1 or 2. And I would never say my gods are right for anyone else or try to convert anyone. If you dont belive cool, you do you
That would require some manhood. You ain't man enough. keep sucking up the soy, boy...

Yes!! ?? I like when mine falls asleep positioned like a baby. He's belly-up in the crook of my left arm, being rocked. Kiddos always laugh and say Mom, all you need now is a bottle LOL.
I'll add to the "you're all boy scouts" argument: I've never seen an atheist on these forums be pro-slavery, and argue that the problem with Christianity is it suggests all people are equally human.
Unfortunately it is primarily the product of indoctrination. When you are taught this stuff at childhood from people you love and actually depend on for life, it is hard to admit it was all wrong. It's like Santa, except there is no "OK, the joke is over now." when you turn 10. This is obvious from a global religion demographic map. Born in India, likely Hindu. Born in Mexico, probably Catholic. Born in Pakistan or Egypt, Muslim. ... Most believe that their faith is the "one true religion" based on where they were randomly born and raised.
It worries me when people say this. It implies that the ONLY reason they are ethical is because they fear consequences or want a reward
Exactly. Truth bomb.
Uh.. sorry, no. Verse 27 is the last line of the parable and it is dialog in the little story Jesus is telling. It is the exit line of the ruler that finishes the parable. It is not Jesus's line. He is not commenting on the action. The NIV makes it clear that it is a quote (of the ruler) inside a quote (of Jesus telling the story).
These are the answers given by people who don't own a mirror. I am sue that many who blame poverty on lack of effort are in the "know nothing" category. First of all, most of the poor are children and elderly people. So how do they get the blame? Most black people are poor and that is because they are unfairly paid and treated. The jobs that pay the least have a disproportionate number of black employees. Are they lazy? Not if you consider the wealth they produce for the businesses they work for. Poverty has little to do with effort. Poor people are often accused of all kinds of things. The rich are behind this. It justifies paying a minimum wage that is not a living wage. If you can't make a living wage because the minimum wage won't allow you to. Then you can work hard and still be poor. The system is staged to set people up for failure and then to blame them for being lazy.
What different does it make? It's all bunkum.
I can't wait to hear the rest of this story!
