"my issue with religion is the lies they tell...I have gone to church with my ma while I have been here but got tired of listening to the lies.  When I first started going I would leave during the sermon and now when I am not working I just drop…"

"   My solution to this was to go to church and let everybody know that I didn't believe a word that was being spoken from the pulpit; that I would not recite any prayers; and that I would not bow my head.  I did stand when the…"

"Ah, the Trinity!  Now was there ever a more convoluted, schizophrenic mishmash of mambo-jumbo?   Talk about multiple personality disorders.  Well he is, no he isn't, yes he is.  Oh, I got it, let's say he is and is part…"

"That is a good question.  I have no idea myself but the speculation ranges from his increasing infirmity to embarrassment over his handling of abuse cases in the past.  With the world growing increasingly more outraged by the stories of…"

"Right - the first, "Mark" wasn't written until more than 40 years later - who waits 40 years to write a book about the "savior of the world"? None of the four gospels were signed, it wasn't until the second century CE…"

"That's because his alleged ministry didn't begin until after his baptism. Regarding the gospel of John, supposedly the son of Zebedee, the fisherman, he didn't even meet Yeshua the way the synoptic gospels say he did. According to…"

"Which is why the catholic church treats the OT as an inconvenient book and distances themselves from it as far as they can. Perhaps they have read some of your work Arch."

"Yeah, good point.  Plus, if you believe the prevailing fable (quite open to interpretation and revision), he had no wife or children.  The "starting a religion thing" wasn't working very well judging from the fact the Romans…"

"Interesting that apparently he didn't preach until he hit that age, either. Christians will torture their chronology to make the gospels compatible with each other when you read the sequence of events (coming up with three distinct incidents…"

"I would not go. You can reinforce the "personal relationship" thing that christians claim they have with their god substance, and simply state that you don't share that relationship with them. Your lack of a relationship with a god…"
