I'm new to the site, at first I joined only to correct someone about Christian morality but I think I'll stay to see what some (not all) atheist think about everything. So yeah, I'm here to see the…Continue
"Wasn't the son known as Herod "the Mediocre"?
RE: "There is still a problem. The slaughter of the firstborns took out everyone under the age of 2, which implies that Jesus was one or two years old sometime before the end of…"
The father, Herod "the great" died 4BC, and it's generally assumed this is the Herod who was in power when Jesus was born in the Gospel of Matthew. The son only lasted until 6AD. Indeed, the son is named as well, as…"
"@Hank - Exactly - That is, what they think, the eating of "Bush Meat" is the reason for aids, and still practiced today. It is some demented, probably xian, who started this, having sex with a monkey tripe.
@onyano - Ha, ha,…"
"I would like to know, why three of the bigger religions are basically the same, and are all fighting over the same piece of land - bloodshed for hundreds of years -when all three religions spout love and joy and happy days - is that just a…"
"Oh I see. You're not a baptist, methodist, presbyterian, catholic, etc. You've made up your own religion that is sort of pentacostal-lite. So why is your religion the best one?
On a related note, if the bible is the perfect, divinely…"
"Matthew 2:1 states that Herod was king of Israel sometime after Jesus was born (and presumably when he was born as well). Herod died in 4 BCE.
Luke 2:2 states that the census that caused Joseph and Mary to go to Bethlehem happened while…"
"Egads! Sorry I misspelled your name. The dog wasn't mine. I went hiking with my friend and her dog, and Axel and I ran up to the top when my friend stopped to have a cigarette. We posed for a quick picture and ran back…"
"You know that's the incongruity that first caught me as a child. If this deity knows and plans everything, what's the point in prayer? Praises, I can get my head around, but petitioning?
(they say their god is asexual,…"
"If their god has a plan already determined for them (it’s all part of god’s plan) then are theists not asking their god to change his will each time they pray? Therefore they are constantly questioning his will?
It must irk him some to…"
"I'm guessing it's because they were more willing to kiss his ass.
But if you ask any genuinely true believer, in either Christianity, Judaism or Islam, they are likely to respond with, "Who am I to question the will of god?""
"But seriously, you look at those two pictures, and you know that there was no transformation from the upper to the lower in a day.
Further, if anyone reading this has any form of gold jewelry, you know it took much MUCH longer than that - it takes…"
Hi, I'm Israel, I'm Christian and I signed up here to correct 1 misunderstanding on a thread I saw in the forums on Christian morality. I want to be the as devoted to my faith as possible. Jesus is my Lord and of course my savior. I like video games. I like basketball and I think way too much for my own good. And I'm an introvert.
Why are you here?
