  1. Which Christian Behaviors Most Annoy Atheists?

    Last thoughts, do you see why your response might cause some pain to those of us who have called out to Jesus and have not been answered? Does this not give you pause to how your interpretation might be flawed? Or do you believe that our interpretation is flawed? I cannot speak for everyone here. But I have cried and cried and cried. Screamed, pleaded, begged....silence. Frankly, I don't want to "evangelize" to you without your request either, so I won't try to convince you. I am just trying to lend understanding to how we got where we are. Some people arrived here by an empirical, rational analysis of the evidence (or lack thereof). Some of us, like me, have a blend of emotion and reason. Mine has been a very personal loss, a very depressing and heartbreaking experience. The bible instructs believers to always have an answer for the hope that they have. I wanted so much to be with Jesus, to be with him, to make him proud of me, to break the deafening silence. The more I looked for some of the answers to questions that plagued me, the more I lost faith/hope in my "savior." Now, I wonder why I need a savior at all? I don't think it's possible to trespass against a being whose existence I question.

    It's great that you believe that, but your belief doesn't change the truth whatever that may be. I might ask a question that is often posed to us agnostics/atheists: What if you are wrong? What if your salvation is not eternally secure and hell is hell? I personally do not have a problem with the belief in heaven. I don't believe there is evidence for it, but I don't have interest in forcing another person to "face the ugly truth" and cause unnecessary depression if it's not really harming anyone. I second the comment made by a user here that I don't think an afterlife and Christianity are necessarily linked..... In all of this, I want to know how you knew the mercy that washed over you was Jesus and the god of the bible? You realize these experiences are experienced by people of every faith? Doesn't it make sense, IF there was something out there, that it was more universal as opposed to just the Christian faith?

    @PennySerenade I'm assuming you missed my post to you, and that you are not ignoring me?
  4. Which Christian Behaviors Most Annoy Atheists?

    Do you mind me asking how you arrived at your beliefs? It's one thing to evangelize when you're not asked, but I'm engaging you in your beliefs and it's a welcome dialogue. I'm just wondering how one would get to a point that you choose to believe something you'd self-describe as absurd. Is it just that you believe we have made logic, science, reason, and the observable parts of life our "idols?" Are those things not of much value compared to faith/belief/the "unprovable?" Like...how do you "know" him to be loving? Everyone is convinced of something somehow, you wouldn't believe in Santa or Bigfoot or the Toothfairy without learning it and being convinced of it somewhere. Not even the slightest bit of sarcasm or unkindness meant, I'm sincerely curious.

    This is catchy. I better watch myself, I'll get caught singing it at inopportune times lol.

    I was thinking the "death to the quiet rape victim" or "stoning your disobedient child" rules myself.

    So....how else were they supposed to repopulate the earth? Genesis: 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

    I just realized that "Evil" is a blend of "Eve" and "Lil [ith]." FLEE FROM EVE-IL

    No wonder god made Evie-poo subservient next time. He got no rest from the woman he made on par with Adam, so he had to re-do it. That kind of a mistake apparently dooms humanity, though....must be part of the plan.
  10. Which Christian Behaviors Most Annoy Atheists?

    Apparently she also refused to be subservient to Adam, my kinda woman lol.
  11. Which Christian Behaviors Most Annoy Atheists?

    Wow. Now I'm SUPER pissed, because maybe Lilith, this sexually wanton little harlot, would not have screwed up all of humanity. She likes the eggplants of her sons, not forbidden apples.
  12. Which Christian Behaviors Most Annoy Atheists?

    Wait. WHAT?! I know the Bible pretty well, not familiar with that bit.
  13. Which Christian Behaviors Most Annoy Atheists?

    Technically, the bible says there were other sons and daughters. But why should the sons limit themselves from just the sisters? I guess Mommy is available too...

    You can't say it's worldwide. It's not, point blank. A brief study of different cultures will show you this, there is a whole HOST of relationship/parenting methods that do not include monogamy, they just aren't considered "first world" or "civilized." Monogamy currently has a lot to do with laws in place, not preference. It's all just social rules. Plus you have to consider why monogamy would be helpful in furthering the species when we were little baby humans. I know you're getting at Adam and Eve, but that's not scientifically relevant. Also, I guess incest was only morally okay for a little bit? Until God got tired of watching and monitoring the same family members having sex with each other and outlawed it? Weird, I thought He (and his morality) was unchanging...
