Human soul

I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

Angela, I received a copy of that blog post, and I wish I could choke that lying nun.  The truth is that starting with the Puerto Rican women who were involved in the very first double-blind tests of The Pill, when the hormone dosage was much higher than it is now, the ones who got the actual medication have always had fewer cases of cancer, and other "women's problems," than the ones who got the placebo. They are still being "followed up"...after more than 50 years.

The pill SAVES lives...unless one believes, as the child-raping Catholic priests apparently do...that "Every Sperm Is Sacred."  (They never say anything about all the unfertilized ova that are "discarded" every month...  Twits.)

Paula, I have read many accounts of what successful writers had to go through to get their first stories or novels published.  You are absolutely right! 

If some unknown writer wannabe walked into Random House or Ballantine, or any other publisher, with a manuscript of the buybull as it is today, it wouldn't even be accepted for the "slush pile" as fiction.

If he was dead set on getting it published, he'd have to go to a "vanity press" and pay to have it priinted.

Or put it on the net as a blog.

I wonder how many hits he's get.  (I say "he" because no woman would have written that misogynistic crap.)

to me the proof is the pudding. the bobble cud only have been written by an isolated tribe of primates. god creates man then he kills of all except one family of which the patriarch is a drunkard. then he selects a group of slaves and gives them some desert land which they have to take from the people who live there.

It IS totally different when you are looking in from the outside, after being a part of the religion. I admit that I haven't read the bible, but I am currently reading the Brick Testament. I assume this 'version' makes fun of the buybull in many ways, but all I keep thinking is "If someone tried to publish this today, it would never happen!" It is so bad! What ridiculous stories that make NO sense, whatsoever. Talk about holes in the plot and inconsistencies!

The arrogance of xians...that was something I didn't notice till I started looking at it from the outside.  Plane crash survivor: "Gawd was looking after me (but not the other passengers; they all died).

Or, when a woman's granddaughter was murdered, "Gawd is testing my faith (because I'm important)."  Why would an all-knowing super-being need to test anything?  She/he/it would already know what's going to happen.

I'm still embarrassed that I used to believe all that crap.  Reading the buybull from cover to cover (twice!) was the last straw for me.
