Re: Liberal Censorship. The Civil War Is Real
Bezos is an individual running a business and if that business does not want to sell crap then that business has the right to not sell crap.

You and the rest of the Cult of ********* simply have no connection with reality. You simply get you puerile panties in a wad when folk point out that your idols are pouting crap, lies and misinformation and so refuse to make it easy to con the rubes.

No one is censoring the current crop of fascists, they are still allowed to publish their books and spew their spiel but they have no right to try to force others to distribute their crap.

You may think that a guy who claims to hear wisdom in his mind is delusional, but I would say that a guy who simply listens to a character in a book and does not believe that the character is actually real is just as delusional.

Yes Phat, the Vedas were not authored by man but revealed by God to the enlightened ones they are authoritative and only the delusional can doubt or not believe the characters are real.

It is possible that out of many religions only one is correct.

While it is highly unlikely it is possible that one or more religions MIGHT be correct.

But there is no possible way to determine such things and all the evidence is that ALL religions are simply the creation of humans.

Of the world's religions the Vedic ones do seem to the the most likely and so far longest lasting.

You obviously belittle me for accepting God.

No Phat, I do not belittle you but rather I belittle the god you create and market.

the classic compartmentalization of Biblical Christianity
Phat writes:

Thats not true for most of us. I have committed no crimes against humanity and neither have most Christians that I know personally.

Christianity likes to enjoy willful amnesia. It loves separating itself from "Them". Its anthem is the 'I was not a Nazi' polka as presented by the Mitchell Trio.

Jim Jones was a Christian.

The Christian Nationalists are Christians.

The anti-vaxer's are Christians.

The Creationists are Christians.

The vast majority of the Global Warming deniers are Christians.

The Crusaders were Christians.

The Pogroms were Christian acts.

The Genocide of the Americas were Christian Acts.

The Holocaust was carried out by Christians as a Christian duty.

Yet you and so many others simply fall back on your anthem.

You claim that you did not commit the atrocities; that you are not responsible; that you are not like them; but there is no outcry from you or most other Christians condemning and opposing and sanctioning those very same elements that still exist in much of Christianity today.

You actively support and practice and encourage willful *********; divorcing reality; placing belief over evidence' which all are the root traits that have allowed Christianity over the eons to be such a cause of so much suffering and evil.

The first step in the Act of Confession is to honestly evaluate past sins. What is missing from much of Christianity is the understanding that the body of the church is the people and that as a communion we are all responsible for all of the sins of the Church since it first began as well as the sins of the Church as it exists today.

Until Christianity grows up and stops denying the evil it created in the past and the evil it is creating today it has nothing except it's Anthem.

Re: The real culprit
Yup. They were all mere pikers, a pale shadow of Christian Genocide; imitators perhaps but hardly significant.

Cant disagree with you here except to say that there are nearly as many Christians in N.America as there are skeptics and other types of worshipers.

Phat, there are nearly as many types of Christian believers as there are Christians. They all believe in the gods they create.

Speaking as a Christian, the Enemy is Biblical Christianity, Creationism, Intelligent Design, Fundamentalism and modern US based Conservative Evangelical Christianity.

That is the true enemy and the greatest threat to the US and the World today.

Re: Why Stick Around? My Belief
Christianity is NOT about getting saved, it's about making this life better for all.

The Salvation Christianity is the work of Satan.

Re: Why Stick Around? My Belief
Yawn.

Try actually reading the Bible and not just cherry picking pieces parts out of context.

In Matthew 25 ALL of the Goats were those who followed Jesus while all of he Sheep were those who did not even know Jesus.

Sorry child. I Cor 13:11. It's time for you to stop thinking as a child and speaking as a child and to become an adult.

Re: Why Stick Around? My Belief
Yes Phat, there is support for my claim. It is the text itself and what is actually written and I have posted that for you to try to read numerous times.

The text actually says what is actually written and not what the lying apologists say it should say.

Read what is actually written Phat.

Phat writes:

You've never successfully explained why it is that *all* apologists lie or that your disdain for them does not influence your own beliefs.

Then that is simply yet another example that demonstrates you are at best incapable of reading or incapable of honesty.

I and others have been asking now for over a decade for evidence of an apologist who does not lie.

Phat writes:

You have failed to explain why so many people have it wrong while you and a few others, many of whom are also evidence based critics who do not believe in the supernatural but champion the cause of works based humanism---somehow have it right.

And you keep on providing evidence of why you and so many others get it wrong. You and so many others show no signs of being able to read or comprehend what is written or even of how to think.

the Get Outta Hell Free Card conjob
Remember that Christians like robertleva seem to have never read the Bible but love to sell the Great Con called Salvation. It's a masterful con with almost no liability during the salesman's lifetime and no chance of product liability claims or charges.

It's a true winner and the only Constitutionally Protected Con that I know of.

Re: Read the Book(s)
There are lots of different Jesus' in the Bible; Jesus of the Synoptic Gospels and Jesus of John and Jesus as found in the rantings from Patmos and Jesus before his prophesy failed and Jesus reworked after the failed prophesy and beer run Jesus and low country bowl Jesus on the beach, Jesus the vandal causing a riot in the synagogue ...

But there is a common theme throughout all the different Jesus' created by the story tellers and that is that there is no Jesus that tells his crew that all will be easy and pleasant and that they will all live lives filled with joy and have a happy ending.
