  1. How many people were actually holy? Bible/Gods word seems pretty hard, man, so assuming it's true I am going to hypothesize that not all all that many were raised from the dead. Not to mention it says many, not all, further lessening the number. I just always figured that thrown in with the rest of the not so believable this just isn't all that big of a deal.
  2. Dropped 500 in a game last night. God is definitely mad at me.
  3. was just that. Actually, that's not true. I had fallen sleep watching "The Voice" off of my DVR and in my dream for some reason that girl Mya from the Lady Marmalade song was one one of the contestants, and in my head Carson Daly was announcing "International star Mya"... and I woke up to my alarm, news pops on my T.V. immediately, 200 plus dead in the South from Tornadoes. Then, my first thought was that God was/is pissed off.Really, if the same can be wondered about for the the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, it bears wondering about in this example as well. Is God pissed off? I
  4. At work some guy who claims to be pretty religious was explaining how Easter morning he was just too tired from the night before to make it to the 10 A.M. service, further explaining how 10 was just too early. I was just kind of listening in to the conversation and just bellowed out what was in my head: "Jesus take a back seat!" Quite a few people laughed but I may have embarrassed the poor guy.Incidentally, in my head I was thinking of the Carrie Underwood song "Jesus take the wheel" and was trying to fit backseat in phonetically so I could sing it, and obviously couldn't so I just yelled it

    I know, right? They get so much else wrong.
  6. I'm guessing your joking, but just want to point out that it wasn't that long ago when a 12 year old was treated like we would treat an 18 year old now. Ability to marry, provide for a family, even take over a throne. Read Little House on the Prairie and you can find good examples of what a 12 year old was capable of, not that long ago.
  7. Your position is that morality in and of itself is good enough, rules don't matter? So, Smokey can't prevent forest fires?
  8. Where did you get that following these two commandments and these two ALONE would prevent someone from being a rapist or pedophile? That's not what I was saying, the point was that a person who could pay attention to these "little" things (and many more, it's not like there are only two biblical concepts in that big ass book) would never need to be told "Hey, man, don't have sex with kids." I never said it was only these two things. As far as murder warranting a commandment, well, at the time, murder was an issue, even for Gods people. God would send them to war to kill, but a line needed to b
  9. I will bite. What's so stupid about the idea that starting with certain concepts helps build better people?
  10. My thoughts on this is that it doesn't rate high enough because it's fairly well known that rape or pedophilia is bad. The vast majority people will never rape or fondle a child, no need to make a big stink about it. But, the two you referred to are not as much about coveting your neighbors wife or his things as much as it is about the mastery of how your mind works. If you are a person who can manage to not **** your neighbors wife, or more importantly not even realize the desire too, most likely you are a person who will not be raping. Same goes for pedophilia. No need to even address it whe
  11. What part of sin equals bad is so tough to grasp?For the record, I am not taking a stance on whether or not the Tsunami had anything to do with God, just looking at the biblical version of things. Biblically, the wages of sin is death, and the "wages" doesn't discriminate, it effects all of us. Young, old, rich, poor, doesn't matter, the wages are the result of our actions. So, yes, even the much ballyhooed baby gets the shaft at some point but that's not Gods doing, that's ours, and it's necessary or Gods a liar.What's interesting to me is no one has even brought up Satans biblical role in t
  12. This was good.Okay, I will streamline it for you. Biblically, the wages of sin is death, right? Sin=bad things happening. Raping babies is not something that you wake up one day and just do, there is a path taken to it, littered with sins, not just your sin but others sin as well. What I proposed is that in order for God to be honest/consistent, the baby rape would be a necessary happening. If it did not happen, and instead after taking the path to baby rape you found instead, say, a longing to ingest lots of cotton candy, God would be a liar.
  13. So, a line of thought that went through my head as I was driving to my fave tranny spot goes something like this: Biblically, recompense for sin must be. Sin=punishment. That statement in itself is so wide open it makes your head spin, much like a quality tranny. But, what punishment, and for what sins? Some of you want to focus on baby rape like it's the be all and end all of sin, (I tend to think dead baby rape is much worse) that being said, biblically, baby rape is going to possibly eventually happen when one follows certain paths of self-indulgence. As much as we can we try and make this
  14. I missed the even the infants part of his statement. My apologies.
  15. I appreciate his outlook and agree with pretty much everything he said. I just like to look at both sides of the picture, because let's face it, God, or the notion of him, is gonna be around for awhile. This has been interesting. Maybe I will try and check in more. Cheers fellas.
  16. I'm not saying they had it coming. I was saying that inherent travesty will take place when one chooses to live/build/make a life in an area known for big ass waves that drown things. I'm also saying I wouldn't put it on Gods shoulders to stop the inevitable, that's what insurance is for, and it won't even stop it, it will just pay for the damage. Put it this way- remember like a year or so back when a apartment complex was basically falling in the ocean somewhere off of Highway 1 in Northern California? If you were the soul dumb enough to still want to sleep in that room, and you wake up in t
  17. Actually, I think it's more the result of people taking the chance of living near the coast in places known for big ass tsunamis, but that's just me. I mean, you reap what you sew.
  18. I see what you are saying, I just think that it's worth mentioning that, according to the story, initially that's was how we started. What we see is the result of bad choices, not the doing of God, according to the story. My personal guess is that God had no desire to create a being that could not think for itself and had no will of it's own. If that was the goal than just make giant Lego people.
  19. Whats the alternative? That God strike dead the person as soon as he approaches a baby with ill will? Okay, fine. Let's allow for that- anyone approaching a baby with ill will inside them will be struck dead, according to the God that makes sense to some of you. Except, God equates all sin the same, in that all sin will take you to hell. So, why stop at that? Why not strike dead the people who tell a lie? See, the problem (as I see it) is that before we knew it no one would have any freedom of choice, one could only do x or die. (Actually, biblically that's already the case but that's more abo
  20. Would you stop the baby from being raped if you knew that it would cost the lives of 10,000 others? Your own personal interference would set off a chain reaction that would kill 10,000 others. How about 2? 1? What would be acceptable consequences of your actions in stopping the rape? What if a gun was to your head, do you try and interfere and have your head blown off or do you close your eyes and realize that one day that baby is going to need you, and being dead is not an option?I agree with you that evil is evil, and it's a scary thing to think that even for a person of God, God might not n
  21. I read everything you said. I still see no reason to continuously give this old fart any kind of power over anything. It could easily be taken away by just not listening. It's akin to the Palin phenomenon- everybody hates what she has to say but can't stop asking her questions. Just... stop asking. Done.
  22. Best post so far. I held a Thanksgiving get together late night last Thursday just so all my favorite friends could bitch about family. It would have been horrifying if any of what was said was recorded and released.
  23. Well, yeah, and you should too. For, in your glorifying his message you have taken the road of "If I can't beat them join them." Which surprises me.I would expect more of my attitude, which is to tell the Pope to shove it.
  24. I understand it, I just don't get it and or like it. The Pope has pull/power, why? What if media never asked him the question? What if no one ever interviewed him? When the Pope speaks about this kind of thing and the media covers it, it gives power to the argument that fundamental, political religion needs to go, and ignores the majority who absolutely support people in Africa using condoms if it helps stop the spread of disease. The majority of religious people don't give two shits whether or not someone wears a condom to protect themselves. That's just good sense.
  25. No, never thought that idea was insane, just got bored. Something that hit me today though, whilst I was thinking about the Popes brilliant condom revelation, was, who gives a shit what the Pope says about people that don't follow Catholicism? His statement was along the lines that male prostitutes could use condoms? What? Why would he even have a position on how a Prostitute should live his life that did not start and end with "Don't be a prostitute?" Still trying to make sense out of that one. I mean, the only way this matters is that for some reason people are paying attention to what the P
