  1. It'll blow over just give it a few generations lol
  2. So JamesG, I couldn't help noticing that your God is "A flying pink invisible and glittery phallus"? So you can really relate to this kind of stuff. Cool! YES YES I CAN! the flying pink invisible and glittery phallus is a goddess beyond question since she doesn't have penis envy So... your phallus goddess is a lesbian? Interesting. Start a new post in the Spirituality forum. I want to know all the juicy details. lol will do

  4. Do you masturbate to scripture or worship music ?
  5. Uh, what? I think what he is getting at is what did ancient Hebrews consider a year? They didn't know the earth rotates around the sun which denotes a year for us. so what did ancient Hebrews consider a year? add on top of that exaggeration and forming reality from mythology its not that unexpected. In fact It would be unusual if it didn't
  6. I've served for years, helped elderly women, mowed grass, It doesn't get you much other than the occasional thank you and a little personal satisfaction. Currently I am working, i.e. "serving" to pay the portion of my eldest daughter's tuition that my wife is about to default on to the tune of 4K.while she simultaneously bitches about me not moving far enough away. Pay your portion sweetheart and there will be plenty of money for me to move. But my mother suggested the same thing R. I guess the problem is I feel trapped in this disgusting little town with no social outlets waiting for my son to grow up so he doesn't feel like I abandoned him. He is seven currently. So yeah, he told me he has been waiting "all year" to go bird hunting. He doesn't hunt, he runs around with a friend's little boys throwing rocks in the water, shooting cactus with their BB guns. I asked her if I could take him on a non-visitation day as the other little boys couldn't go on his scheduled visitation day. After a year of "divorce", do you think she could side on what would be fun for my son? No, she said no, we could go on a scheduled visitation day. So she can't support her children's education, won't support their fun, and wanted me to build her a house instead of sending our daughter to college. And because I DO do all of those things, I am stuck in this town subjected to her hate-filled dagger throwing self. Meanwhile she sponges off her parents through the dysfunction of her mother who has money and gladly wants to be the mother of my children because she couldn't let her own go nor teach them responsibility. Send me a bill for the therapy session... honestly you need a break . can you take leave your lab for a significant amount of time?
  7. cant stress this enough. TV is a brain drain get outside and enjoy life go for a hike build something enjoy the beauty and splendor of planet earth. Fuck TV
  8. art display!!! I am going to have my ashes poured into a mold it will be my last and final art piece. the main filler will be a corrosion resistant metal like aluminum. the core will have my brain or brain tissue thickly encased in resin. some ashes will be made available to family to do as they please. the main funeral event will feature booze and good food. Celebrate my life don't mourn my passing
  9. read the Hebrew version to it falls apart at the seems. It can't even decide if its mono or polytheistic Gen 1 has the Eloyhim(gods) creating the universe in the opposite direction (planets before stars, plants before sun.) Gen 2 has Ya'wah of the Eloyhim not creating the universe but 2:4 ¶ These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that Yähwè ´élohiym made the earth and the heavens, mainly it appears he was the god that created the earth and plants. gen 2:4 has him as a participant of creation not a singular creator. http://wiki.ironchariots.org/index.php?title=Biblical_order_of_creation also debunks creation Hebrew transliteration here http://www.qbible.com/hebrew-old-testament/genesis/2.html another take I have on original sin http://www.ex-christian.net/topic/56981-adam-gets-my-eve/
  10. Love Kim Jong-un for everything being a subset or manifestation of Kim Jong-un, so why not
  11. Thought this exchange was relevant and massively face palm worthy when pointed out that shaming,bullying,disowning LGBT kids caused depression and suicide to increase among this group and ex-gay therapy contributed to these problems here was the Christian response So what do you propose to do, make it illegal for the world's 2 billion Christians to think homosexual behavior is sinful and immoral? It is ridiculous to think a difference of opinion is 'shaming and abusing' someone. Is a liberal Democrat 'shaming and abusing' a conservative Republican because he disagrees with him?
  12. http://www.qbible.com/hebrew-old-testament/genesis/1.html Here is a good unadulterated source ancient Hebrew and greek with active definitions on roll over If you don't trust the church just bypass it Genesis 1 is particularly eye opening you get to see the other gods =D
  13. The concepts of the trinity existed before the Nicene creed. It may or may not have been the majority in theology but it definitely did exist beforehand. There is a great thread that shows the political wrestling between two major forces in early Christianity regarding the trinity. Christianity is a very nebulous term not believing in the trinity might not make you a catholic or a Baptist but so long as you consider Jesus as the savior or messiah of some kind your a Christian. Early Christian groups were marginalized much in the same way Mormons were and scientologists are. Uniting Christian groups with Judaism was not really a concern as at this point they vastly outnumbered jews and secondly the strong anti-Semitism in Christian theology after the councils. This was more of an issue to stop infighting and gaining political power both of which were accomplished shortly afterwards
  14. with respect I was referring to tools humans use on each other a single virus can be far more destructive than we could dream to be. black holes are supremely destructive . Religion secular or spiritual makes it easier to manipulate those around you. It operates on group behaviors and when you have an adversary you can create an other this allows us to dehumanize them. Nationalism does the same thing but to a lesser extent. With regards to evolution this was necessary to small tribes fighting for scarce resources. Believe it or not the psychological damage killing a member of your own species is really tough as evident by the high rate of PTSD among soldiers. The ability to dehumanize your opponents protects your psyche in war, religion was an integral part of our evolution. I would also like to add as a side note similar reasons Sociopathy. They may seem harmful now but we are an ever evolving species morality consciousness etc. are merely traits that are effected by this process, it will always be subject to change in response to environmental stimuli
