So I'm sure we all have Facebook friends that post crazy, amusing, disturbing things about god. So what are the worst or most amusing things that you have seen? That and do you ever respond to these posts or just ignore them or even just delete people from your friends list? Furthermore how have other people reacted to your own posts about Atheism or subjects that might go against the faith of friends or family?
I hate facebook. It's like you don't exist if you aren't on facebook.
Tell that to my creditors.
I remember when Microsoft had actually convinced almost the entire computing world that Microsoft was a monopoly. Sure, they lost millions in anti-trust litigation. But for years, customers were convinced they had no choice but to buy Microsoft products. You can't buy marketing that good for any price.
I was using the Internet long before Facebook appeared. I'll still be using the Internet long after Facebook joins AOL, GeoCities, Netscape, and MySpace on the can't-live-without-it rubbish pile. I didn't use any of them either.
You don't have a profile on Facebook. Facebook has a profile on YOU.
Damn, you're right!
God is my co-pilot, but Satan possessed my brakes.
I had a big time christian send me a FB link to Leonard Cohen' brilliant song "Hallelujah". Apparently he never actually understood the real nature of the lyrics. I'm sure its a common mistake "to hear only what you want to."
Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who has seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well, really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah
Jeff Buckley's version doesn't carry that last verse, Robert, and I hadn't seen it before, so thanks for posting that.
And how come there is war and rebellion in heaven? Wouldn't that spoil the atmosphere?
Here's my epic Facebook adventure with my hairdresser;s cousin:
I read it. I read the whole damn thing. Where is my cookie? Where is your trophy for sticking out that conversation? My, that woman was condescending. I wish I had the opportunity to ask her about her "experiences" and knowing God. Does he speak to you? What language does he use? Has he got an accent? Can you see him? Does he prefer togas or going buff? Lol, I mean come on! The closest I ever came to "proof" of an interaction with God was experiencing a well-timed coincidence. The rest of my "relationship" was one-sided internal conversations (prayer), hoping for a response, trying to interpret life events as a response, and interminable waiting. How does this woman think that is anything like an actual give-and-take relationship? Maybe she does have delusions and halucinates a response. She seemed pretty convinced.
I tried reading it all but only got about half way, I forfeit my cookie to Kairan...
Haha yes, maybe god gave the thief my friend's car because they needed it more than her. You know, like Robin Hood. I also hope my friend called the cops and thanked them for their help. The friend who posted this was not religious at all back in high school. She actually was one of the first people who made me question the belief that I had to be Catholic to be a good person. Crazy how things change.
