Nope, Strega, he isn't. Good stuff.
Maybe god is a sadist.
Well the Jews have brought us the Atomic age that could kill us.
Is it assumed that they contrived a God to delude us also?
I am actually more akin to Judaism than Nicene Christianity instituted by the Pagan Constantine and his Bishop henchmen.
If you really want to be creep out, watch Paranormal Witness. They dramatize and exaggerate everything. Yet if there is iota of truth to what these families are spilling their hearts about, it is disturbing. Church going Baptist (Nicene in my book) get pounced on and beat up by a presence despite their conviction. Not a vote of confidence for the Nicene Creed.
@Michael. It seems you may be fishing with the wrong bait here. The word Paranormal sends up red flags for any thinking Atheist, so I must tell you that Evidence must be provided before any belief is given, and this included ghosts, aliens, monsters, and boogie-men.
And Constantine died a christian, fyi. He converted when he made Christianity the official religion of Rome.
From my last reading of 'Revelations', the number 144000 comes up for the limit of numbers of the 'specal people' to be allowed in heaven. One can 'learn' something from the Seventh Day Adventists.
I asked about this once during a bible study I put myself through. They did not seem to have a good answer. I expect that the writer(s) of Revelations/Bible could not count any higher before the number become 'lots'. Seems like this number would have been satisfied before 100AD, meaning everyone, inspite of their humility and good standing, would be cast into the fires of hell. Seems like this could be a 'stick/carrot' for atheist outreach in the right hands...;p)
