  1. I've long thought teaching kids the hell doctrine is child abuse. My parents taught me this and exposed me to this. I give them a pass because they did it out of ignorance and their own sense of love. It's truly an evil doctrine as it convinces the believers that it's their duty to spread the belief and those who most often fall victim are their own children. It is a mind virus.
  2. There can be no moral absolutes if this is where this thread is heading. For example, if an evil genius gives you a choice between abusing a child or he will push a button and destroy Indiana, what's the correct moral choice for you to make in this instance? In this episode of Black Mirror, the UK PM must fuck a pig on live television or kidnappers will kill the princess they have in custody. What is the right moral choice to make in this situation? https://www.primewire.is/tv-2730529-Black-Mirror/season-1-episode-1
  3. Without a valid permit too. Standing up for what you believe supersedes petty bureaucracy.
  4. I think you took that from someone I quoted. I didn't write that.
  5. All three of his names, first, middle, last, have 6 letters, hence, he was the antichrist.
  6. How does that impact you now? Did you go off the deep end when you deconverted and do everything in rebellion, are you still conservative because it's now ingrained, something else?
  7. When I was 18 or 19 my friends and I listened to Bob Larson's call in show and the demons on it scared the shit out of us. Looking back, it's some of the funniest performance art ever:
  8. When I was a kid, I remember a missionary who told us that back in the jungles in places like India, the demons were so open and aggressive, they'd just call out to you from the trees. My church was pretty run of the mill, not kookoo as far as churches go, but he had everyone all freaked out. We just knew that stuff like yoga was some sort of demon portal to the god-protected US.
  9. Let's assume for the sake of argument that all of this is true. Putin is killing his opposition or imprisoning them. I've pointed out above that I don't think these things are accurately reported, but again, for the purpose of an intellectual exercise, let's say they are. We establish rules against these types of things because we worry about how they impact the masses of people, right? If it's really just a question of what is right and wrong, the US, with it's wars is way out in front in the sin game, but it's a lot more than just a question of absolute morality isn't it? So, how has thi
  10. Sorry for derailing this thread. I'll stop if you wish Fwee. On the subject of business experience in Russia, there was an interesting event which took place Putin's first year in office. The city of Vladivostok was left without heat right in the dead of winter. 400K people were at risk of freezing. Meanwhile, ships in Siberia were loaded with coal, already sold to western companies. Corrupt oligarchs had diverted the entire supply of coal in the region to Western buyers. Putin seized the coal in the harbors, diverted it back to the city of Vladivostok and arrested 24 industry insiders for cri
  11. On American TV. As I've been pointing out, the media has an agenda. The same conglomerates that have interests in seeing NATO expansion own the media. But, it's not easy for foreigners to do business here. That's another topic. I'm not really too worried about this. I'd like to see Russian businesses given a chance without having to compete with Western corps. IMO, it's better for the Russian people. Putin put Khardikovsky in prison for a while. The guy was evading taxes and when he did it, he was in the political fight of his life, having to deal with western-backed oligarchs who
  12. I don't like the US government (not unlike any thinking and informed person with a sense of morality in this day and age), but I'm an American citizen and I want the best for the American people whom I love even if I sometimes criticize them. Right now they are just as abused (if not more so in many ways) by their government than other countries that are also victims of this evil organization. My citizenship is my birthright, it's not something the government granted me. Why should I give it up? My family came to the US 200 years ago and worked hard to build the country, long before the corrup
  13. Sigh. This is just not true. Claims unsupported by actual facts don't make things true. Russia today is far more free than the US is today. This is a great example of why I started my thread about bullshit in the media. People don't know which way is up anymore as the media can't be trusted to share facts, but are more than happy to spread propaganda. I encourage you to come visit. It will do wonders for your world view. Syria is not committing genocide against its own people. There is so much wrong with your post, I just don't have energy to address it all. Let me ask you, wh
  14. I'm never going to concede that all countries do it. Russia did nothing wrong in the Ukraine. The US fomented a coup in order to turn Ukraine into another NATO base and grab Russia's important naval base Sevestapol. The people of Crimea, who are 95% Russian held a referendum and voted to join the Russian Federation with almost a 90% result in favor. No shots were fired. And who could blame them, after seeing the Nazis in charge in Kiev who had kill lists and were on a hunt for Russians and Russian sympathizers? Below is a detailed explanation of what happened there. The US is doin
  15. Geezer, Russia became a nation in 1989. The Soviet Union no longer exists and Russia has not invaded anyone in its 25+ years of existence. The US, meanwhile, over the past 25 years, has invaded, droned, bombed, overthrown democratically elected governments and otherwise molested 134 countries. You do realize that Syria is a Russian ally and that Russia was invited there to defend it? Seems like you don't. The US, OTH, is there as an invader. You don't invade your friend's home when he invites you in, you invade when you break in uninvited. Can't believe I
  16. And Napoleon was just bringing French Glory to the world. The US isn't fighting terrorists, it's creating them, both literally and figuratively. This isn't a war on terrorism, it's imperialism straight up. Russia hasn't invaded a single country. They may or may not be arming those in Donetsk. Hard to say. They wouldn't have had to if the US hadn't incited a coup and supported Nazi killing squads in UK. But why do I have to defend Russia? I'm still an American citizen.
  17. Do you realize how drones are being used? The president has a kill list and drones are sent into countries all over the world taking out people who have never had a trial and who are on sovereign soil where no war has been declared. This happens in over 100 sovereign nations (who the fuck do we think we are?) around the globe without permission from those nations to operate, much less commit acts of war. Even US citizens have been taken out -- again, with no due process. So, no, we shouldn't be sending in soldiers or planes either. The drones just make it easier for us to break internation
  18. The interesting thing about people is they react differently under different types of pressures. When I first moved here, there was a skinhead problem. The 1990s were an extremely difficult time here. The ruble had collapsed and people had lost their savings overnight. At the same time, prices for food and everything else soared and jobs were hard to find. It was the US depression on steroids. During this time, crime rates rocketed, so did drug and alcohol use. Today, things have been the most stable things have been in 30 or 40 years, even with the sanctions. Crime i
  19. The US, with only 5% of the world's population, has 25% of the entire world's prison population. Why would we want to increase the conviction rate? As it is now, myriads of people are in prison on plea bargains because they are too poor to fight the charges.
  20. I had experiences and I can explain them all rationally. I saw demon eyes once. Scared the shit out of me. Now I understand it was sleep paralysis. I saw people speaking in tongues and doing all kinds of crazy stuff. Now I understand it's group psychology. Both seem really real. I understand why they fool people. But they are quite common.
  21. I think they have always gone together. The only reason xianity survived and became the force that it is today is the concept of divine right of kings. This lasted until the enlightenment as a justification for political rule by a single person or family. I'm far less familiar with the history of Islam, but I imagine there was also a commingling between religion and political leadership. That certainly seems to be the case in places like Saudi Arabia, which is still led by a royal family, which justifies its position of authority using religion.
