      If you want to be hard core, run Arch Linux.  There's no graphical installer to walk you through the process.   You get to build your OS component by component with only what you need and want.

      And as for "God" (the creator of this status).  Come on man, you gotta believe in yourself.

      Ah yes, the ultimate intelligence (God) does not have an intelligent creator.  This argument has been done to death on here but I doubt you're going to provide a better answer than "it's a mystery".

  10. Christians are very big on calling the Bible a ‚Äúblueprint for living.‚ÄĚ ¬†So then why is it hazy¬†about whether you should rip kids from their parents, ¬†but perfectly clear about the prohibition¬†of¬†baking gay people a cake? #situationalethics¬†

      Yes, I've seen the term used before.  It's quite stupid really, most of the bible pertains to events that supposedly transpired way before your birth or will after you're dead.  Anything actually pertaining to living is relegated to a few outdated commandments or some parable babbling by Jesus.

      The bible isn't a blueprint for living as much as one for dying.  The reward is on the beyond and not here and now.  "Living" implies embracing the present.

  12. I have decided to follow God on Twitter.

  13. Just because a person is an atheist/non religious doesn't mean that they're suitable to be a lifetime partner.  Likewise, just because a person is a Christian, doesn't mean that they're unsuitable.  If I had to commit to marriage I would rather have a faithful, stable, Christian wife than some of the individuals I've seen in the atheist community so far.  Of course, I don't know the whole story or what else could have gone into her decision (besides pressure from her Christian mother and her child).

      Currently there are two Christian women in my life who if given a chance, I would date without hesitation.  They are both attractive, highly motivated, have much going for them, are uplifting, and most importantly they are stable.  I would date them over the atheists who wallow in cynicism, complacency, ect (although, I can't say I am without those faults myself).  They have exactly what I'm looking for in a partner and I'm willing to overlook belief differences.  Likewise, when I was a Christian I was very attracted to an atheist girl because I could be myself and free around her.  At the time, it was what I was looking for and what made me feel complete.  That was years ago however, and the atheist movement has been contaminated with self righteous justice warriors, identity politics, self victimization, and a whole other basket of ills that I find repugnant.  I can't be myself anymore without offending someone.  I'm also attracted to raw femininity which again, the atheist community seems to discourage.  The point I'm trying to make is that for many, a person's religion isn't the main factor in determining compatibility.  The perceptions in this forum are skewed because many have been hurt by Christianity and therefore cannot be with someone who embraces it.  I've been out of the faith for long enough that those wounds have healed and I can look at the world in a different perspective.

      While a Christian, I saw my peers dating secular individuals for a multitude of reasons.  I've also seen atheists do the same.  Your friend is dating a Christian man because he probably offers something that her atheist peers do not.  Maybe he offers her the security and stability that she lacked for most of her life.  Maybe he offers the love and affection she's been craving.  If that's the case, don't be disappointed or concerned.  Instead, be happy for her, maybe get a chance to meet this guy.  You may find the reason why she is attracted to him.  Maybe yes, she did leave Christianity for non-intellectual reasons or perhaps she is in a transitional phase like some people here.  I do wish her the best.

  14. Have been having bad anxiety related to the programming and indoctrination from birth - 21. It's so strong, especially as these "prophesies" come to fruition (Harvey, Irma, earthquakes, and fires)...

      You have to realize that these events have been happening since planet Earth has existed.  The reason there seems to be an uptick in these events is because of how interconnected the world is.  A natural disaster can occur anywhere on the planet and we are aware of it instantly.  Try to imagine the pace that information traveled 100 or more years in the past.  We would only really be aware of the happenings in our immediate local area.

  19. From a FB status: "Caitlyn Jenner said Trump would be good for women's issues. I hope he grabs her pussy. Stupid LOL" Really? You claim to support women, but hope that a woman who disagrees with you about women's issues - ironically - gets sexually assaulted?
