When it comes to Christians, you already "disrespect" their ability to reason, by mocking their reasoning because they do believe in God.  You already "mock" their rationality by trying to make them appear irrational because they believe in God.  You already "deride" their critical thinking skills by trying to make them appear foolish and unable to think outside of their "God" choice in life.  I'm not impressed with your goading of me or others with respect to Christianity or our belief in God.  You are the one making yourself look ridiculous with your little quotes and pictures and disrespect of peoples' choice of believing in God.  It's not your business anyway, when you get down to it - in real life, everyone makes their choices, and you are just a "poster" on the other side of the screen trying to make Christians look unreasonable, irrational, and unable to think critically.  We are technically all "posters" on the other side of the screen.  But respect is a key word with any debate, no matter what the discussion is, and that is something you sorely lack with Christians - that's really sad you seem to dislike the idea of Christianity so much that you feel you must continually bash Christians regarding their God, beliefs, and their Bible. 

I disrespect your ability to reason, you have a pathetically limited ability to reason if you believe the nonsensical stories in some ancient writings that you base your life upon.  I don't know what I can say to you people, your confused reasoning far exceeds my abilities at any explanation and clarification.  It's kind of similar to trying to convince my kids that Santa Clause doesn't exist, or that the Easter Bunny didn't lay those eggs, it would destroy their illusions and they wouldn't have been old enough to understand the actual truths of facts and this wordly existence.

So, for the rest of you who still believe in the one remaining godly myth, I'll either wait for you to grow up too, or not ever, and then we'll talk about your childish fantasies, or not.

You are totally entitled to your opinion, beliefs, and thoughts.  I am entitled to mine as well.  I don't need to answer to you and I never indicated to you, in particular, that I wished to speak with you about God.  You call Him a "myth" and my beliefs "childish fantasies," and yet have provided no proof to show that my God is a "myth" nor have you shown that my beliefs are "childish fantasies."  Have a nice evening.

I am just wondering, did Christ himself say he is returning or is it everyone who believes in him saying this nonsense?  :BangHead: :BangHead:

No, that was Arnold, as the Terminator ... "I'll be back ..."

Such a wonderful verse of scripture that speaks to the hearts of believers. Jesus Christ is coming again, but only for those who have placed their trust in him as savior and Lord.

Only reason escapes capture by an illusional 'rapture'.


“Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.”

I'm from Missouri. You'll have to show me. I mean real proof, not just some words in a book.

Amen! He is coming again to see if there is faith.  Will you KNOW Him when He returns???

Amon-Ra is making a comeback?  Why would checking to see if 'believers' have "faith" in something matter to a hypothetical supernatural entity unless blind faith is all that sustains such a belief?  That is, if such an entity exists, "faith" or "belief" in it is not required as a requisite of existence, (it either exists or, doesn't exist).  Belief and faith are therefore extraneous concepts.

Here's something I find to be EQUALLY if not MORE believable:

          Paul McCartney died in a car crash November 9, 1966.

I am confused.  Paul McCartney isn't dead.  He played in London during the Queen's Jubilee just a couple of weeks ago.  If he is dead then who played for the Queen?  Or is that just your point and I am missing it?   :dontknow:

1 Peter 1:7  "That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:"

Mark 13:32  "But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father."

Ok, I can understand people wanting to quote scripture, but when you put something that makes people go, What?, I think you need to rethink which scripture you are putting or at least put the verse before it to help it make sense.  Geez, this is just like the billboard that is on the way out of my town.  A Baptist groups puts scripture verses on it, but there are times when it just doesn't make sense because the whole thing isn't there.

That's because such constitutes simply proselytizing religious beliefs, (e.g., sales pitch).  One does not have to 'buy' the "snakeoil" being 'sold'.
