"I still remember a Sunday school teacher in my early church days who said about the bible, "they spoke so strangely in those days." She meant the 1611 King James English, of course. BTW, "hast thoueth been saveth?" (I think…"
"You're right. Faith does not work. I have a grain of mustard seed made into a necklace, but it doesn't work. If I want something bad enough I say "come on, mustard seed." It just never works.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.…"
"It's because everybody wants to go to some sort of heaven, and nobody wants to die. Human nature steps in and chrisitan apologists keep on lying themselves into it. If you get a lot of people to believe it, then it must be true, right? At the…"
"The biggest number one factor in the death of religion is knowledge, and that knowledge comes today through the computer and the Internet. Computers are used in every school system today. Answers are pretty much instant. Even so, the…"
"The lady on the train was rude and showed no tolerance. She should have just kept her mouth shut because she doesn't know any of you. At best, her wild reactions here should have produced remarks from you telling her this in a quiet way.…"
"Just think everyone. If Jesus had of been born in a different era and the christian religion had of evolved this same way, none of his followers would have crosses around their necks. They would all have gold chain necklaces with tiny electric…"
"It's mostly today because television continues to put lies up as being "real" and they pass it off as truth. Discovery had a program today showing the destruction of Atlantis, and they had some of this in documentary form. Come on…"
"I never prayed that anyone would stop drinking. Even though I studied for the ministry once, most people were praying that I would stop drinking. As for life in heaven adoring god and our Messiah, how many centuries would it take for that to get…"
"The holy that is happening is the Holy Goat, Donald. LOL In my church days I've seen plenty of it, and some do simply want attention. I suppose the idea is that they have something you do not have, and that makes them more favored of god.…"
"I watched a clip recently featuring Penn Jillette. He was speaking of christians claiming god is the author of morality, and saying there is no morality without god. Penn says when you make a statement saying "god is good" you…"
"Just last night on H2 (the second History channel) there was a program called "The Real Jesus." Using the bible and other sources, speculation ran wild. One scholar declared that "Jesus knew the bible really well" and I asked…"
"You're right Donald. In the bible speaking in tongues would have to have been like an interpreter at the UN. The "reality" of it today is simply gibberish. Nevertheless, I've always wondered if there might have been a common…"
"Either his childhood is spilling over into his adult mind, or he thinks he is championing children. Why someone wants fight for tinsel, trees, decorations, Santa, and even a baby Jesus in a crib at the base of the tree is beyond me? Sixty years ago…"
"My African brother in law is Luo, and they do not believe in circumcision. In order to marry his wife, who is of another tribe, he had to become circumcised like the males of her tribe are. For a long time afterwards this circumcision gave him a lot…"
High BP (blood pressure, British Petrol!) is a major health concern. I used to be on hydrochlorothiazide (water pill), but it did no good. I'm going to request Flomax or something to actually allow me to pee better.
I never thought of a "redneck language", although we often associate rednecks with the south. They're everywhere, even North Dakota and Maine. To me, it's more of a lifestyle. I was certainly lumping them all in one huge category. My bad!
