Rebuttals for Bible Prophecies?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Garrett Taffer Oct 26, 2011. 6 Replies

Garrett Taffer replied to Lizard M's discussion 'How has religion had a negative effect on you'
"Aside from the usual feelings religion has made me feel, such as fear and guilt, there was also something very regrettable: being proud. Holier than thou. I've had that thought in my mind that my religion is right, yours is wrong. "Satan…"

"Yes, I guess you're right. When I was religious, I would think of these haunting, frightening images of death and destruction. Pestilence, wars, crimes! They are happening right now! The bible is right! Of course, it also happened 200…"

"Yes, I try to move on to other subjects. It's difficult, if not impossible, to make someone who's deeply religious and completely convinced of these bible prophecies that they are indeed too vague, sometimes nonsensical."

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
Forgive me, I have not yet fully revealed to the world that I'm agnostic/atheist. Baby steps, since I just came out of a 35 year delusion of a belief system that is based on blind faith, a very old book & inaccurate details of the past.
Age
41-46
Why are you here?
To understand and make more sense of my life (and those around me!) in a way that goes beyond what one very old book can teach me.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
Many other contradictions. Questions that could not be answered and that had to be accepted as nothing more then blind faith. But that one thing that really started to pull me away from religion, aside from actually re-reading the bible with new eyes, is the fact that it's all based on where you were born. Your parents. The society you grew up in. Your friends. "God showing you the true path" isn't good enough. If you are in the Pirahã tribe in the Brazilian Amazon, an Indigenous Australian, or a traditional Inuit, this God delusion is obvious to you.

I thought you executed your point perfectly, well done. Reading comments from such close minded christians really gets to me and i know it shouldn't. I'm so grateful for this site and people like you who will bring reason to this cruel religiously ruled world. =]
