Hello, everyone. I was an atheist until at the age of 27 I began to study the Bible in order to debunk it. I learned quickly that the Bible was grossly misrepresented by apostate Christendom's adoption of pagan teachings such as the immortal soul from Socrates, the trinity from Plato, the cross from Constantine, hell from Dante and Milton, Easter from Astarte, Christmas from the winter solstice celebrations, and most recently the Rapture from Darby.

Though I have never and will never be a part of organized religion, my beliefs are not entirely dissimilar to that of The Jehovah's Witnesses, due to the removal of the aforementioned pagan influence. I have studied briefly the history of the major world religions, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Shintoism and Taoism and have published sacred and non-sacred texts from each of these online: The Dhammapada, Four Noble Truths, Paradise Lost, Divine Comedy, Analects Of Confucius, Bhagavad Gita, Qur'an, Pirqe Aboth, Nihongi, Kojiki, Tao Te Ching and Chuang Tzu.

Having been an atheist most of my life and given that nearly everyone I know is atheist, I think I understand and respect where most of you are coming from. I don't believe in "converting" anyone to anything, but I do think the atheist tends to be mislead when it comes to the Bible. Not that that matters much, except for that I do enjoy, given the opportunity, to correct them in thoughtful and polite discussion and debate.

I hope we can have some interesting conversations.

His position is too weak to withstand an intellectually honest debate. So out come the personal insults and chest-thumping about his superior intellect. Right on cue. 

Well, I better mosey on and hope the next crop of fucking atheist idiots I come across are not so unmerciful in their self appointed wisdom.

I'm going to predict this one. He'll either:

1) Escalate the abuse until the moderators smite him. Then he'll tell himself he got the boot because he was "winning". 

2) Rage quit. Then he'll tell himself he left because he was surrounded by idiots who just can't admit how smart he is. 

Which will he be, folks? Number one or number two? Place your bets. 

I'm going with number one. That's the more face-saving of the two exits and just slightly more plausible. 

Lookee here. He's baiting the moderators.

By the way. About 6 of my most important posts, threads that I have started have been wasted on this forum. Keep that shit up moderators. Lame.

I'm doubling down on number one.

 

If that tripe were what he considered as his "most important posts," what must his throwaways have looked like?

I'm a bit concerned that his penchant for instant rage might be an indication that his elevator doesn't go quite all the way to the top floor.

It might  be that some folks get a little irate when they can't change the value of the 'h' constant, or convince atheists that the truth is not what they can prove rather well.

I do have to thank him the the deep insight as to where I might find 'God', what 'God' looks like in a grassland environment, and where I can find a free meal. All very important details for nature study..LOL   

I am voting a 'rage quit'.

How is the vote going so far?

I'm with you, James.  A rage quit.

am voting a rage quit

With all those tantrums, I'm more inclined to think his mother told him it was bedtime --

So far it's:

Moderator Smite: 1 
Rage Quit: 3 

I'll go with number 3...he will realize he's 47 years old and never been laid, will go upstairs out of the basement and tell his mama the people on the Internet are being mean to him. :)

IWikipedia: I (named i plural ies) is the ninth letter and a vowel in the ISO basic Latin alphabet.

Oh David you're cracken me up...you called him "Dino". LOL
