    I don't know if god is real or not, but the evidence that he listens to prayers and cares for the earth appears to be very very weak

  • Still have any Gods? If so, who or what?
    Careful now, down with this sort of thing

  1. Hell is a very sick idea , dreamed up by sadists. It is not likely to be real. Millions and millions and millions of people have never even heard of it throughout history. Are they to be sent there having never even been made aware of it. Countless humans lived prior to Jesus( assuming he was real), countless lived prior to the Bible....are they to be doomed, doubtful. What fear is there of the hell of Allah, or any other god....none. The chances of hell being real are very very low. But even if it is real, the Bible makes it clear that most people go there anyway, even if they believe that Jesus was the son of god, making salvation laughable. Satan certainly must have believed in Jesus and he is still going to hell according to Christian theology. In standard Christian theology even children get sent to Hell, forever. Imagine worshipping a being that will fry an 4 year old child , forever. It is sick, sick, sick , sick. Shame on god and shame on his flock. Be kind to yourself and try and stop chasing shadows.
  2. Given that the Confederacy wanted to break away, was it right that Lincoln used the army to force then to stay in the union .
  3. Absolutely, spot on. Too add: Lots of lots of people claim to leave their bodies during operations, etc in hospital. Some hospital have put card high up (from which an astral projector patient should see).None do, yet they are convinced they have left their bodies. As to Hell, we are told it in inescapable and forever, although these, not quite really dead people mange to leave.
  4. People come and go but agree that some aggressive posters def drove some people away
  5. 1-The Bible is rife with contradictions 2-Evidence for Jesus outside of the Bible is very thin 3-Prayers are not answered 4-Christians cannot even agree with each other on Salvation 5-Even breaking one rule is akin to breaking them all, stole a bottle of wine when you were 20, you are the same as Hitler. 6- God knows all from beginning to end, we can do nothing to earn Salvation yet somehow we are still responsible for it. 7-Looking at someone lustfully is the same as sleeping with them and must be punished after death with forever fire. 8-Rape victims are complicit in being raped and must be punished, either with marriage to their rapist or death 9-God , the author of love, mercy, goodness and justice personally killed people in the OT and plans to roast them in the afterlife. 10-Loving your wife who supports you is wrong, yet loving an invisible, mind reading serial killer who lives in the sky is right.
  6. For me... Sledge Hammer(USA) Married...With Children(USA) Police Squad(USA) Spaced(UK) Father Ted(UK) The Simpsons (USA) Futurama(USA) King of the Hill (USA)
  7. I am still waiting for the free Unicorns promised us after Brexit
  8. Charles Templeton was a very famous Christian preacher, author and co founder of the Youth for Christ movement and a close , close friend of Billy Graham. He sincerely believed, but eventually came to the conclusion that the Bible was nuts. Presumably Judas believed, as did Satan......Satan knew that God was real assuming for a moment the Bible was true) , what with the whole living with Him going on, yet he turned away...
  9. To add: Last year, one team was reduced by about 50 percent, due to sickness, etc.....one of the guys said (wisely), "don't rush, as if we clear the work with half of us, they will make this the new norm", or there about.
  10. 1- Where do people go after death if they were born before Jesus 2-If everyone is born into sin, does some one so brain damaged at birth, they don't even know themselves go to hell. They are , after all still born into sin 3-Why are most of the names in the Bible not known outside it. No record of St Paul exists outside the Bible in his lifetime. 4-The Bible records great events, unknown to non Biblical writers 5-Why doesn't prayer actually work 6-Jesus said, those that believe in Him could do the same things, such as raise the dead, please explain why believers cannot do this. 7-The Bible is largely anti wealth, how do rich believers justify their own wealth. 8-Jesus said to hate yourself, your family and the world.......why is this not taught in church. 9-If God so loved the world, why are we commanded to hate it(see above) and why did he drown nearly everything, re-create the world with the intent to fry 99.99 % of humans. 10-Why is the Bible filled with contradictions
  11. Picture a woman born in 1550, living and dying without hearing the Gospel.....Thanks to the curse of God on His creation, no matter how well she lived, no matter how kind, despite all the charity and love she may have offered....Yahweh and Son will roast her for ever and ever and ever in screaming pain.......purely for having lived and inheriting sin...... Nasty, nasty stuff Conversely, in standard Christian theology, Ted Bundy who raped and then murdered women and who repented on his death bed.......will be given a harp and a room in the Mansion of God while his victims are fried by God..... Only lunatics could possibly want this to be true.
  12. I recall Nabeel Qureshi........obvs his theology wasn't my cup of tea, but a clever enough chap.
  13. I am at work for 8 and a half hours a day, my job is OK, I have done a lot worse and most (but of course not all) of my colleagues are cool people.... So this is not an anti work rant (as such) I can do my job part time, easily, very easily, so paying me a full time wage seems to me to be a waste of company money. I have offered repeatedly to go part time and it has always been refused as I'm told my job is a "full time requirement". Now there are two of us working in the office. My colleague has had an accident meaning he is off work, so now I have to do both jobs......and I still clear the work with an hour or so to go........and I am not even going, "hell for leather"...... I just don't get it, I have worked there for about a year and a half and I have proved that the job can be done part time. Obviously, if the manger doesn't want to give me part time hours, so be it, I can always go elsewhere. This is not about me getting my own way, merely my head scratching at why would you pay some one full time for a job that simply does not require it. I just don't get it...... When I get a tradesman in to do a job around the house, or say clear the garden, I don't pay per hour, We agree on a price, he does the work and I pay him, it is takes him 5 hours and I pay him £100, or it takes him 90 minutes and I still pay £100, so be it..... Years ago I was temping at a company where there was perhaps about 100 or so temps. The work ran out, so I asked if we could go home. I was told no, sweep and tidy up......OK, so we did that, didn't take long, what with there being so many of us......so I asked again for us to go home...told no again, find something to do.....there is nothing to do...sweep up again......100 plus or so temps pretending to work at a combined cost of around £1300 an hour.....same thing happened the following night....don't get it.....If there is no work and people want to go home, why not let them, is it a manger power trip to keep them....... I worked in a factory with a 9 and a half hour day.......zero motivation to work fast (paid the same regardless on how much work you produced), boring work, relative long day (for the UK), people just plodded slowly through it...when they weren't chatting at the coffee machine or hiding in the toilet. We used to get moaned at to work faster.....I'd say most people perhaps did "just enough" to stay under the radar.High turn over of staff, low wages, long hours and poor productivity.....I could have tripled my output, but for what...boss openly didn't care about the workers and in turn, the workers disdained him.....the place was straight out of a Dickens novel. On the flip side, i was talking to a chap once who had worked a job unloading lorries. they had to unload 5 lorries a day, working a 6 am-2 pm shift.......one day the manger says, right, unload those 5 lorries and I will let you go home on full pay, I don't care how early you finish, I will pay you until 2 pm, I just want those lorries gone......they cleared the lorries, daily, no latter that 10 am......at no extra cost....every one wins......I accept not every place can do this, but most places don't even trial l it......you are given your hours regardless how productive they (or you are). There is a company in Sweden(sorry, forgotten the name) cut the daily work day down from 8 hours to 6, a twenty five % reduction in hours worked...profits have risen 25 % Company in Scotland has given all employees a three day weekend. Productivity has risen 33 % There was a company in America, same sort of story.....high turn over staff, constant cost of rehiring and retraining. Boss had a think......reduced the working day by 2 hours a day, yet they still took home the same wage......productivity soared, retention of staff dramatically went up, sick leave went right down..... Is the way we work outdated? thoughts?
