  • More About Me
    Was raised as a Baptist, moved on to the Church of the Nazarene as a teen, and eventually became very active in the Assembly of God church.

    After some years I realized that I am agnostic and have not returned to the Christian faith since that time some 30 years ago.

  • Still have any Gods? If so, who or what?
    Agnostic
  1. If God is perfect, if She is incapable of making a mistake, then Ted Cruz is proof that God does NOT exist!
  2. BO and I have knocked heads a few times. BO claims to be a Libertarian (and if he means the Libertarian Party then I believe him). I, on the other hand, am a Whig (read Classical Liberal, aka libertarian). There are some correlations that can be observed, but I think they are the product of what I will call the "birds of a feather" principle. That is, people will flock to a leader who is most like what they believe, whether that be politics or religion. I have (only half-joking) maintained that religion was created by a nerd who figured out that bullshit could overcome brawn and beauty
  3. Orbit, I must respectfully disagree with you in that I do not consider myself to be "lingering" as you put it. I am an agnostic, pure and simple. I don't know, and to some extent do not care, if there is a "God" (or gods) or not. So far as I know, it can not be proven either way. I have upset more than a few people on this forum by saying that in my opinion, there is little difference between a Christian who is steadfast in their belief and an athiest who is stadfast in their disbelief. I would be willing to accept either position based upon an acceptable proof. (Given that even "l
  4. "so there it was, I felt i needed to take that hat off. take the label off. I am not a christian." - pops So there it is indeed! Does that make you an evil person? No! It simply means that you are being honest with yourself and that is always a Good Thing. May you enjoy continuing to explore what you are.
  5. "I would rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy." - unknown originator, possibly W.C.Fields or Steve Allen.
  6. Fuck you. I'm still a kid at 60. I admit that I like to save money and take advantage of the "senior" specials when I can, but I think I am at the point where I'm going to enjoy my life by doing things I like, such as enjoying good food (BBQ), Scotch and cigars. Why would I want to live to be 100 if I can't enjoy getting there?
  7. It is logically impossible to prove that the Universe and everything we can discover about it was not created a little over 6,000 years ago exactly as we perceive it today as a test of faith (or proof that "God" has a sense of humor.) Hence, there is nothing that can be discovered or witness that could be substantial enough proof to a Christian that their faith is wrong.
  8. Define the terms "older" and "senior" please.
  9. Thats why man invented the stapler. Why did the punk rocker cross the road? He was stapled to the chicken.
  10. Who gives a damn about the UI? Backend is where the real work gets done, by Perl!
  11. And you make it clear that you, along with many, MANY other Christians, not only don't know but don't care that you don't know. But that won't stop you from trying to teach everyone else that they are the ones who are ignorant.
  12. Like so many, if not all, of your statements.
  13. I want to know why you put Mormons ahead of Seventh Day Adventists. Or weren't they in the "Shitbox Christian" caste?
  14. If you go and sample some of my posts I think I can back up the claim that i am an agnostic in the truest sense of the word. I don't know, it can't be proven, and except when people who do have faith that there is or is not a deity intrude upon my life I usually don't care. That said, the concept can make for some interesting discussions at times.
  15. I can easily identify with this. As I relate the following, bear in mind that I recognized that I am not a Christian more than 30 years ago. My youngest daughter (who is now 13) was born deaf. Apparently, that wasn't bad enough. She suffered a stroke at age 9 that has left without the use of her left side pretty much. Not a good thing for a child who had dreams of being a dancer or a gymnast. I usually get one of two responses from Christians who learn of this: 1 - God has a plan for this wonderful child. You should feel honored that He has entrusted her to you. 2 - This is your puni
