What is the worst excuse given by the faithful?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ratifying Obliqueer Sep 26, 2011. 54 Replies

Years ago I read the bible with highlighter in hand and found it to be quite interesting at times. But after reading it and as is no surprise, I had even more questions than before. So, for the sake…Continue

new ten commandments

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jason Ward May 19, 2011. 6 Replies

I was curious of the potential commandments some of you may come up with and mind you this is simply for fun of course so feel free to be humorous. Maybe we don't even need ten or maybe more are…Continue

Jason Ward replied to Ghost The Smoker's discussion 'When do you think people will finally start to understand atheism?'
"The people you are chatting with are what I would refer to as convenient Christians since it is a matter of convenience that they refer to themselves as such so as to "fit". Convenient Christians don't understand atheists or atheism…"

Jason Ward replied to SteveInCO's discussion '"You are just mad at god"--Are we actually encouraging this by mistake?'
" I tend to suspect that the faithful who would use such a "gotcha" moment don't necessarily assume you actually believe in god or that not believing in god is somehow outside the realm of their comprehension. It seems to me it is…"

Jason Ward replied to Melchior Vulpius's discussion 'Should I Lie to Children?'
"You should most certainly tell the truth, with the obvious explanation that it is an opinion that some disagree with. Children look up to you as not just an educator but as one to "trust" how does their willingness to trust you fit into…"

Jason Ward replied to Arcus's discussion 'Human rights vs State supremacy'
"Idealism always reminded me of an old, humorously anecdotal plaque my mother had, which said "I'd like to be an optimist, but I don't think it would work out". Idealism is fine but these problems are considerably deeper and more…"

"The "bottom up rebuild" you refer to is something preached in almost every society history has had the opportunity to discover and investigate, but what is always missing from the puzzle? What you speak of could be, and surely would be…"

Jason Ward replied to Timothy Paté's discussion 'What if God/Jesus were proven to be real?'
"Well I would think that rather than use the tools of science to achieve certain goals one would be inclined to simply pray, that is if praying were actually effective. The deistic god as you mentioned probably would not want devotees or at least…"

Jason Ward replied to Timothy Paté's discussion 'What if God/Jesus were proven to be real?'
"Another question could be; What if this god said that the Muslims were correct in their faith and god wished to be referred to as Allah, would Christians become Muslims? Or would they see this recent incarnation as being Satan instead?"

Jason Ward replied to Alyson Mitchell's discussion 'Salutations, all!'
"Alyson,  Firstly, love the hair, quite beautiful. I have a question, if you were a Sunday school teacher, did you not read the bible before and during this point and hence notice all the unpleasantness? I'm sure it's a long story,…"

Jason Ward replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'Cherry-picking religion: Do some religious people just choose the bits they like?'
"Thank you for clearing that up the accidental correlation of atheists and psychopaths. "Dawkins says, as there is no God there is no good or evil and no meaning or purpose, values are relative." I don't recall Dawkins saying this…"

Jason Ward replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'Cherry-picking religion: Do some religious people just choose the bits they like?'
"Bummer about the text, I tend to type it up on word or something first that way it doesn't get lost, works for me. Point by point I suppose and I will forgo my cherry picked parts since my point was that anyone can do it and that anyone can…"

Jason Ward replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'Cherry-picking religion: Do some religious people just choose the bits they like?'
"I tend to agree and it's genuinely unfortunate as I would have enjoyed a discussion with a christian who's objective of understanding a differing opinion was sincere, this does not appear to be the case."

Jason Ward replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'Cherry-picking religion: Do some religious people just choose the bits they like?'
"To return to the topic at hand and surely mentioned by others thus far, "cherry picking" is a positive and necessary outcome of reading, that is to say unless you have the capacity to recall every word verbatim. As such we recall (or…"

Looking at your friends list, you have the best in the business - look forward to reading your very civilized comments. Thanks for the ask.

Thanks for inquiring!  I've been having a great time, but been too busy with work to do much ranting and raving on the discussion boards.  I just got laid off, but I'm enjoying a little bit of doing nothing before I get writing again.  How have YOU been?

I am pleased to meet you as well, Jason. I've read some of your other comments, too, and you seem to be a reasonable and courteous person. Your humor, though, is awesome! I'm so use to working with men over the years, and working primarily "MAN JOBS", lol, so I can banter with the best of them! I hope you will be having a fantastical weekend! (I seriously did not think FANTASTICAL was a real word but the auto correct didn't jump in...then I looked it up...wow.)
