"What's interesting is that some posters on this thread say God this and God that and Christians this and Christians that...as if they knew the mind of God"...


I dare say that NO ONE knows the mind of God...

How could they???...




That works for both "Sides"...

^^^^Lynne look close, you'll notice that most of the bashers are x-catholics. Fallen presumably because they were unable to "do" what the church required them to "do" inorder to know and be inline with the catholic God. No intimate relationship ever occurred. All negative information and bashing becomes their very own religion. Otherwise, if it really didn't matter, they really wouldn't care.

God this and God that and Christians this and Christians that.
Christians believe in both testaments of the bible.
Although there are thousands of contradictions in the bible, many tenets are consistent. Which of course is logically inconsistent.
Ergo, there is a large consensus of Christian belief regarding jesus, god and acceptable human behavior.

have you taken a poll? Aren't you also bashing a particular christian religion?
Christians have shed more blood among themselves than all the wars with Islam put together.

Right on, Locker! Agree, I think.

And here's a total thread drift ......I miss Blitzo. Yesterday going thru pictures has put him in mind and heart as well as others who are gone from our present lives.

either you're a troll, being sarcastic, or more likely haven't got a grain of reason in your head.
I'll be generous and for the time being assume you're being sarcastic.

Surely we can't handle the entire mind of God. But Jesus did say, if you know My Word, then you surely know My Father who sent Me.

Although we might not comprehend what's in Gods Dark Matter. He thoroughly lays out what's in a Dark Heart..

BlueBlocr has a few screws loose. Did he just try to use science? Christianity is the sworn enemy of science. Is he daft?
The constitution was written by people with real knowledge of Christian Religious Witch Trials, Christian Religious Wars and Christian Religious Dark Ages lasting 1000 years.
BluBlocr and his ilk are barely out of the dark ages and they are fighting to take us back to before the Age of Reason.

thats like saying all Muslims are radicals. Some Christians have their heads screwed on too tight, but not all of them. Most of the ones I know have a deep respect for Science.

I speak of Christanity.. You speak of individuals. People are multifaceted and religion is humanistic in that it must accept the views of its practitioners or fade. No Christians today would survive the Christianity of a few hundred years ago. That's progress. Humanistic progress.
Could you stomach a Hindi society? A Muslim one? A Jewish one? Zoroastrian? I doubt it. Most of us think that American Muscular Christianity is an embarrassing pride in anti-intellect, anti-science, anti-reason and anti-progress. Most modern american Christians support wars. Not all individuals but as a group. Justify all you will. Tell me who you are with and I will tell you who you are. Actually it's " dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres".

no.. not as a group.. that is just your exposure to what the media puts out there. like most things, the media reports the fringe. not the mainstream. Even mainstream leadership within the Christian community has a wide variation in what it accepts as truth.

Hey Flipper,
Are you x-catholic? I'm taking a poll. This is the science i am rendering.

Oppose science? Science is my tool, I use it everyday. It's God the Creators pet.
Why should I be afraid?

Should I chalk you up as x-catholic?

"Christianity" "Science"

Media generalizations.

FACT: Darwin was a Christian.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Darwin#Religious_views



Twisted words, misunderstandings and generalizations as facts perpetuate discusion.

Truth, plain and simple, understanding, ends discusion.

No history of Catholicism in my family. My folks were non-practicing Protestants of some kind. I was exposed to the horrors of Protestantism and Catholicism in the American South and South America and, of course, History.

So, the pope, Jesus, Abraham and the virgin of Guadalupe all represent the same lunacy to me. The Bible is a big fat lie. Without childhood indoctrination religion would die. Religion is racism at its core. If not then why does Christianity keep dividing and dividing into thousands of sects unable to agree. Jesus only unites people in Battle.

Science is the term for a method of proving repeatable experiments to understand our world.
Christianity is just another cult for controlling people.

And if BluBlocr is a Christer against x-Catholics then isn't that just another example of religious hate?

Sorry John.
Not meaning any offense to you if you are one. I know that there are some followers of Christ within the church. But I have been keeping tabs on how many of the loudest bible denouncers around here are in fact x-catholic. That's all.

And yet it moves.- Galileo Galilei (attributed)

"…to abstain completely from teaching or defending this doctrine and opinion or from discussing it... to abandon completely... the opinion that the sun stands still at the center of the world and the earth moves, and henceforth not to hold, teach, or defend it in any way whatever, either orally or in writing.

— The Inquisition's injunction against Galileo, 1616.[60]

Christianity= Enemy of Science

It matters not if Darwin professed belief or Galileo dismissed Kepler or if Washington was a deist. Because progress, bitches.
