  1. Ezekiel was talking about something he expected to happen soon. He made other prophecies that didn't come true. It is also probable that many of the people who made the efforts to restore Israel were Christians and Jews who would have interest in it due to their religious beliefs and had likely read the Book of Ezekiel. If someone has a book of prophesies they believe in, and they decide to take the actions to fulfill the prophesies in that book, is that really such a miraculous thing?
  2. Sure about that? If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. - Luke 14:26
  3. You shouldn't have to live with this even with disability. If they side with the perpetrator it will only get worse. Why do they side with the other person and not even tell them it's wrong? Does the person that hit you have some mental illness?
  4. For some reason this just made me picture god trapped in hell as punishment for all the things he did in the old testament. As if the short stint as Jesus wasn't enough to make up for all the previous events.
  5. Does he think there will be a Second Coming or Armageddon? Does he believe heaven and hell exist?
  6. This drives me nuts. Especially the new crap of calling Islam a feminist religion. I'm probably biased because the first person I knew that had grown up in a Muslim culture was an ex-Muslim girl who claimed it was an oppressive and sexist religion and culture which was why she expatriated. There are still women forced to dress that way. Of the women who are choosing to dress that way, it's because they feel it's virtuous and pleasing to god. At it's most innocuous level it's a misguided attempt to virtue signal. So they actively worship a god that is pleased from the sexist double standard in attire? That's the better interpretation? This is feminist? I've noticed among leftist atheists, if I say something negative about some verse in the Bible, they agree with me without hesitation. If I say something negative about something similar in the Quran they'll defend it in the same apologetic manner a believing Christian defends bad verses the Bible. A weird double standard has developed where it's ok to criticize the Bible, but not the Quran. I argued with someone a long time about whether or not disliking Islam is racist. Basically, he said that since most Christians are white, it's ok to dislike Christianity because it's only disliking a religion without ulterior motives, but since Islam is mostly non-white it's impossible to disentangle disliking Islam with racism against non-whites. So I can dislike the Bible all I want, but if I criticize Islam, it's all thinly veiled racism. One thing I said I didn't like about Islam, he was quick to jump on and say that Christians believe the same thing. And I said, "Yeah, and you agreed with me when I criticized Christianity for that, but when it's Islam you defend it. Pointing out the thing I don't like in Islam is exactly like the other thing I don't like in Christianity doesn't prove I'm being racist. It proves I dislike both!"
  7. And then the PC crowd can rewrite history as they wish it to be perceived. The same cycle goes on forever.
  8. In the US, the fair housing act doesn't apply to a roommate. You can't discriminate as a landlord renting out a unit, but you can discriminate if you are on subletting a space that you also occupy as a your private dwelling. Sharing the same private living space is considered too personal to force someone to have to accept anyone. That doesn't mean it's not racist, but different laws apply to roommates. An individual can discriminate in an ad for a roommate/flatmate they will share living quarters with. A landlord can't discriminate in an ad for a tenant in a unit they themselves won't also occupy. However this incident is in NZ, and I have no idea how the laws are written there.
  9. I dislike both parties, but I don't see a third party having a chance to win.
  10. That face looks very Maine Coon to me. I have a Norwegian Forest and her face is shaped different. The facial proportions of a Maine Coon tend to make them favor the large cat breeds with a bit larger muzzle and smaller eyes relative to the face. Norwegian Forest have larger eyes relative to the face compared to Maine Coon. Of course there are masculine and feminine features that are apparent on cat faces, these differences between the breeds are a bit more pronounced. Norwegian Forest vs Maine Coon vs

    This is why I don't see how the 12 step program works. Addictions seem minor compared to many other issues that god doesn't bother to help out with. If god doesn't bother to stop people from doing harm to each other, why would he decide to intervene in stopping self-harming addiction behavior? Since believing god is helping you is all a form of self hypnosis, perhaps self help is the only sort of help any "god" would be capable of. Regardless, I would find it very difficult to convince myself that god felt like helping me while ignoring others with much bigger problems.
  12. Facebook's algorithms show you more of things you respond to. Posting comments on things you disagree with causes it to show you more most posts like that. The whole point is to get you to use facebook more. It doesn't care if you are enjoying it so long as you are interacting with it.
  13. That if I am a good enough Christian I might actually hear God's voice speak to me one day! Now I'm glad he never said a word.... It's really stupid but, if someone told me they actually heard god's voice tell them something I'd believe it because no one would lie about something like that! Right?
  14. I'm glad to not have to spend time worrying over nonsense anymore. I always had this nagging feeling I needed to be worrying about what god wants me to do. I spent much time contemplating how close my understandings of god and his will were accurate. I always felt like a lot of the laws were not really from god but rather added in by priests to give them more control over their followers. And the anti-female parts were in there because the bible was written by men. That didn't stop the nagging feelings like I'm doing something wrong by not following the bible accurately. The most difficult thing was accepting that everyone who has died is most likely gone for real. It felt like losing deceased loved ones all over again. The other difficult part was accepting that all the time and resources that were wasted studying and worshiping a false deity were truly in vain. Switching one's timeline from infinite to very finite really changes the perception of how much wasted time really matters.
