  1. Certainly not. That would be dismissing the powers of Dr. Jesus.
  2. My wife has a friend that I have written about before. Can't say two sentences without throwing in Jesus and attributes anything she can't understand to her Gods plan. So today she came by the house, sat in her car while her granddaughters brought up a card and poinsettia for my wife. As I was thanking the girls she yelled and asked if I thought I had had Covid. I said I had tested positive a couple weeks ago. She stuck her hands out of the car and clapped. (She is a retired nurse and subscribes to the herd theory for ending Covid) She prattled on about Gods wil
  3. Was at a small grocery store yesterday and trying to get my cart around a couple who were in an intense discussion with a store worker in the middle of the aisle. They were quite oblivious to my presence and as I got within earshot .......... "God is sending a message with the virus!" came out of the mans mouth. I was wondering when the crazies would start going public with this sort of thing. It is kind of funny ......... an allegedly omnipotent being who must be living in Hubei province is using the scourge of a virus to send a message to the world. Sounds kind of Ja
  4. "You don't understand why these things happen but we know it was God's plan," Truelock told WHNS. "And that's the only thing that can get us through, 'cause we know it was God."Paisley's parents are hoping autopsy results will offer more insight into her death, WHNS reported. Tragic but the reporter obviously couldn't resist adding that last line.
  5. (CNN) - An entire town in Louisiana got a Christmas blessing thanks to holy water and an airplane. Cow Island and the neighboring farms got a dusting of 100 gallons of holy water just before Christmas, the Diocese of Lafayette announced Sunday. ..... and in the neighboring town of Rationality all citizens bowed their heads for a massive face palm.
  6. All of it. From the preparation to adjusting to the lack of oxygen and altitude, it was absolutely incredible. If you have even a passing thought of doing it, just do it. The thing is every person who has asked me about it thinks it must have been very expensive, it wasn't and could have been even cheaper had we not had a guide and porter. If you have any questions just PM me.
  7. My wife lost her mom when she was 12. It had a devastating impact on her and a lot of her motivations and behaviors are traceable to that event. Every once in a while she will mention "when I see mom in heaven". It presents a rare occasion with believers where you just have to nod and smile.
  8. You only have 2 posts and this one sounds like something from The Onion. If there is an ounce of sincerity in your post then it would be reasonable to assume you have not traveled much in which case this seems appropriate........ "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” - Mark Twain
  9. This popped up from someone in my Facebook feed. It's titled First Moments in Heaven. Seriously?
  10. My wife and I just returned from a trek in Nepal where we went to the Everest base camp. While waiting for our flight out of there we met a guy from Tennessee who had gotten a cold when he was just two days from completing the same trek but had to return while the rest of his group pushed on. During the conversation he revealed that the trek was actually a mission trip funded by his church to check out possible villages to "plant" church members to "spread the word". I didn't know whether to puke or roll my eyes and leave. Fortunately within a few minutes we got called to the air strip and lef
  11. Yesterday my wife and I ran into the woman in this story. Oh she had the greatest thing happen to her the previous day. Her elderly husband had exited a parking lot onto a state highway and went the wrong direction. He went several miles before realizing his mistake and did a U-turn in the middle of the road. Her god was so good to her husband that he delayed the stop lights on down the road so that there was no traffic and he didn't run into anyone. She said, "Just another example of how God works!" All I could think about was how a guy did the same thing near this w
  12. Today was my wife's annual play-on-the-lake day with her retired boss' uber-Christian family. Every year she invites him and his wife, their 4 adult sons and their bazillion children over to swim and tube. All they do when they're here is talk politics and religion. Not a damn one of them can complete a sentence without tossing in god or jesus. It's very annoying. So as usual, before they ate, the boss' wife said a prayer then dropped in something I'd never heard of before, a "God Sighting". I guess it's a feel good thing running rampant through the mega-churches and incites
  13. The Duckboat Accident on July 19 --Tia Coleman's thoughts as she struggled to swim to the surface of the lake were focused on her family. She and 10 of her relatives were on a family vacation from Indiana, taking a tour Thursday of Table Rock Lake near the Missouri tourist hotspot of Branson. A treacherous squall sank the boat, sending Coleman down into cold, deep water. She knew she had to go up to get to safety and to help her children. "I said, 'Lord, please, I've got to get to my babies. I've got to get to my b
  14. So my X and her husband got sucked into the Dominionist cult........ Christian Taliban, total Jebus freaks. Well today my wife was at my youngest daughters house and my daughter (32) made the comment that her mom and step-father were having big problems with one of their adopted children, a boy who is now 14. Seems he is not allowed to get on a computer so he finds unattended cell phones in the house and surfs for porn on them. This was information given to my daughter when she recently visited her mom. My daughter also mentioned that when she was visiting she noticed that the boy wa
  15. If you read a little further down in verse 9 the god is "walking" in the garden and "asks" where Adam is. Isn't this god supposed to be omnipresent and omniscient?
  16. Acts 1:9 So a piece of a god shed it's earthly body to go back to where it came from. Not much of a sacrifice there.
  17. Forgive me, I have a habit of making light of things even when it would be socially unacceptable, especially when the irony is so palpable. So this lifelong friend of mine lost her mother last Spring. Her mother suffered most of her life with debilitating arthritis. Her last year or so was spent curled up in a ball in a bed in a nursing home, totally coherent and mentally livid but physically incapable of anything and enduring immense pain. She was around 72 when she passed. Her husband was a Pastor. He visited her in the nursing home every day, twice a day. In death he
  18. This (misspellings included) in the FB comment section for a story on Ryan Shazier, the Pittsburgh Steeler player who suffered a spinal injury last week......... "I come before the thrown of God today decreeing and declaring a full recovery for Ryan Shazier in Jesus Name! I rebuke the swrlling and bruising and declare it must leave. I come against any doubt and fear and pray for him to not just recover but have a speedy recovery that baffles the doctors. I pray for his emotions to be in tact and for Ryan to be strong through this trial. Lord I thank You for answering this prayer i
  19. Well, they do believe in talking snakes, zombies, and magic apples so "clairvoyant" children would not be out of their realm.
  20. Anybody watch Mr. Robot? I'm just catching up on season 2 but here's a quote from episode 3: “Is that what God does? He helps? Tell me, why didn't God help my innocent friend who died for no reason while the guilty ran free? Okay. Fine. Forget the one offs. How about the countless wars declared in his name? Okay. Fine. Let's skip the random, meaningless murder for a second, shall we? How about the racist, sexist, phobia soup we've all been drowning in because of him? And I'm not just talking about Jesus. I'm talking about all organized religion. Exclusive groups created
  21. My mom is a thumper and the day before I married my first wife she talked to me about the races mixing and the biblical inferences against it ........... my wife was 1/4 Filipino the rest all cracka.
  22. What's interesting about these kinds of exchanges is how [insert religion] - centric they are and how the promoter isn't conscious of how their assertion fails when stacked against any other religion. It's similar to how people from a country tout how great theirs is compared to all others.
  23. had a minister give me that book about 12 years ago. I couldn't get through it. The assertions were just so dumb it hurt.
