"I don't know about how attending a baptism would actually be insulting to your friend. It would be respectful towards her. it just might be uncomfortable for you. But if you are into the anthropology of religion you might find it interesting.…"

"I think this can be answered best with dawkin's "teapot" argument. My proxy for this argument = that there could be invisible unicorns that have sex with fairys producing "fairycorns", which are responsible for global…"

jharbs replied to idcollapse Ra's discussion 'You are stronger without god'
"I agree with you partially, but I do not think that a religious person is necessarily a weak person; rather, they have a weakness.  I say this not to refute your point but to mention that people can be strong, good, intelligent human beings…"

jharbs replied to idcollapse Ra's discussion 'You are stronger without god'
"When I was a Christian I remember using God to help guide me and give me strength to do things that I originally did not have the confidence to do. In a way, God really helped me accomplish things I thought were difficult, but in retrospect, my lack…"

Mason replied to jharbs's discussion 'Pope=Antichrist?'
"There were numerous schools of thought in early Christianity (1st, 2nd, 3rd centuries CE), mostly defined by how they viewed the nature of Jesus. Some of these views were: Marcionism – Christ was a purely spiritual entity Nestorianism –…"

"Okay, but gnosticism is as much of a monotheistic religion as hinduism is, but I guess you can classify hinduism as monotheistic depending on how you look at it...needless to say I agree with your silly sausages point"

Bryan B replied to jharbs's discussion 'Pope=Antichrist?'
"I tend to think of antichrist by a more broad definition of a single person or thing that brings great suffering to the entire world. To me there have been many and that includes all of the popes and religion in general."

"Whoa. Freaky thought that such important people in western culture, mathatics and science could have been teaching devices and metaphors."

Graham replied to jharbs's discussion 'Pope=Antichrist?'
"Well, for what it's worth, I think all mono-god religions ARE worshipping the same invisible man in the sky. If they all claim that there is just one god, and they are all right, it stands to reason that it is the same one, but they just call…"

jharbs replied to Adam Weber's discussion 'Does Religion brainwash people?'
"Yes, but how do you define forced indoctrination? I mean, we are born into this earth involuntarily, we did not choose to be here.  So everything we learn here, which is a reactionary process of learning about our contextual environment, is in…"

jharbs replied to jharbs's discussion 'Pope=Antichrist?'
"Well the Christ figure himself is just a myth and legend, but it is interesting to learn how these legends came to be.  I am interested in the gnostic antichrist, because although such a term in and of itself is rather redundant, it essentially…"
