Over the last few weeks you've turned from a nice if overly-Christian guy a bit confused about life the universe and everything to an unlikeable, aggressively pious, bullshit preaching idiot.

That's all, no humour, no irony.

Re: I'll Try And Answer Honestly...
But alas you and no one else has ever presented any contemporary, historical evidence for this christ character. There is no evidence he existed so why would I put any credence into stories about him.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: I'll Try And Answer Honestly...
What percentage of christians do you think have ever read their bible? I mean actually read it cover to cover.

I don't know. My mother read it through once a year or so, but I don't think she paid much attention to doctrine. My father certainly read it through and knew it well. (He may have had the same memory for trivia that I do. )

Not just taking verses out of context.

What bugs me is that they tend to think the "overall context" overrides the local context. That gives them leeway to impose their "overall" interpretation on anything.
