It's radical!

Most people say, "Crush your enemies!"

But I've found little that will bring a person more peace of mind than following this one simple recommendation.

Since you're a Christian, think of another religion, like Scientology. Don't you think people would either have to be gullible, stupid, or indoctrinated to believe such a ridiculous story as having actually happened? (See my post above if you don't know what Scientologists believe.)
nonsensical, isn't it?

It's almost as ridiculous as Scientologists who believe they have little aliens inside their body that they need to get rid of and become a "clear" -- but not even as far-fetched.

I don't see how people can believe this nonsense -- except gullibility, stupidity or indoctrination.

I haven't seen a presentation of facts. I see "gullibility", "stupidity", "Indoctrination".



If that's not name calling and insults, what is it?

Yeah, it’s name-calling. There are a few reasons to embrace the Christian religion that are none of those insults. There are gullible, stupid, and indoctrinated people everywhere on the planet. Doesn’t have to do with one religion or another.

Many Christians I know believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. A few atheists I know would like to believe in them too but fear getting kicked out of their club by their fellow members.

You know adults that believe in Santa and the Easter Bunny? You should probably avoid those people.

Hey, say what you like about Christians but leave Santa and Easter Bunny out of it.

I can't imagine a bloke in a lab coat sneaking into my house on Xmas Eve to fill my stocking. So I'll stick with Santa, thanks very much.

Don't diss the bunny Tart - he was beautiful and didn't deserve to meet such an agonising death.

Mind you, what with the myxomatosis and a gangrenous limb from years of carrying a whicker basket - the eggs were getting a little too moist pre-delivery.

(sigh) I like to think he watches over me from Hareven...

I never mentioned "adults." But, I do believe an adult may be immature while a child may be mature.

If you want to scoot from somebody, you should get the hell away from -- and really fast -- someone who opens a thread with such a ridiculous question as: "What Christians REALLY Believe."

I mean, even a crack head wouldn't seriously respond to that question. It seems that another Jim Jones -- minus the religion -- is in the making.

Can most children, in your opinion, even be a Christian or an atheist?

For the first sixty years or so of my life, most people in my immediate vicinity were staunchly entrenched in the camp of Not-Giving-A-Shit. Is there a god? I don't give a shit; hand me another beer. Some of my fellow Notgivingashitinists were agnostic, some were atheists, and some just didn't a shit. Whatever is is, whatever isn't isn't, and we'll find out when we find out. I was good with that. Now, you'd always run into the Theist, handing out phamplets, who'd try to strike up a weird conversation with you, and all you had to was shrug, "I don't give a shit."

Within the past ten years, something happened somewhere. I don't know if someone found a way to sell memberships to some sort of atheist club or what. All of the sudden atheists separated from the I-don't-give-a-shit camp. The became loud, obnoxious, and they were seriously trying to recruit your ass. They couldn't just let it go; they were pathologically incapable of it. No, they're in your face all "God is bullshit" and they just wouldn't stop.
They're kind of like Brian Patrick. Someone mentions one word about Jesus and he fucking smells blood and he's all over it. He can't let it go. Something inside of him just wants to explode. I don't know why that is, nor do I particularly give a shit. Like what do you think is gonna happen? Everyone who holds traditional theists beliefs is going say "ah, no, fuck everything I've believed in my whole life"?

Now, we have a new camp of obnoxiousness and somehow one doesn't cancel the other out. It's just fucking noise.

Strange characterization of me, bro. Are you sure you read the whole thread?

It’s all just noise to me too. Sometimes it’s fun noise, though.

Sphane, I can understand your sentiment but I don' t think there's a rise in muscle atheism -just a prevalence of trolling generally. Worthless words spat from anonymous mouths.

Religion is always a favourite because God cannot be proved or disproved - an attractive arena for the dumb to confidently spout forth hatred on an unresolvable topic.

Konan is not a real hater - there's just not any thought behind what he says. He came up with an attention-seeking headline, threw out some rash insults to Christians on page 1 to get a fire started - then had an epiphany on page 2. - finally delivering on his headline promise of 'what Christians really believe'

"I love Jesus" (Konan)

"I love a lot of lessons he taught" (Konan)

"I would consider him a role model" (Konan)


I hope Konan has no future plans to be a lawyer when he grows up...

Brian, I believe a parent's first job is to take care of his or her child. Next, the child should be taught right from wrong before ever being introduced from religion (or non-religion). Teach the child to be generous, compassionate, and charitable to other children. I mean, I'm not a devout Catholic, but occasionally I do go to church. I see parents bring their restless two-, three,- four-year-olds into church on sunny days. The children cannot sit still. I say to myself: "Why are you bringing these children here? Take them to a playground. They want to play."

I would never try to mold a child to go up to be an image of me. Everyone, including children, has a mind of his or her own. When the time is right, the individual will find his or her place. All I will hope for is that once a decision is made, the person is happy with his beliefs. But, and this is a huge BUT -- I pray my child will never seal his head and be stubborn about his beliefs -- because having an opened, unbiased mind is worth more than any material riches. (My opinion)

Konan is a good kid. A bit mixed up but nevertheless not out of gas yet. The fact that he is still hanging around this place suggests one thing: he is going nowhere fast. It is best that he focus his attention on his goals rather than he waste his energy despising Christians. If he doesn't change direction, he'll waste his life on the internet arguing with others who believe differently from him . You get along with the kid -- level with him instead of "thanking him for a useful post" (REALLY stupid) every time he goes into one of his anti-God rants. As Spshane stated, "not-giving-a-shit" is a good policy. But, sometimes you have to offer a blind person a hand, especially when the blind person crosses the street. So, help out the kid when he crosses instead of shoving him into oncoming traffic.

Yeah, this seems mostly sensible to me. But I don’t think I let Konan off easy. I did challenge his conclusions. Not because I think he needs to be taught something, but because what I said is what I believe. I don’t have a problem with religious people in general. My only problem comes when there are laws made or desired that limit the freedoms of others. And, not to an extreme level either. I realize that any law or social custom may be difficult for some segment of the population—that’s unavoidable. I just think there should be constant dialogue between oppositions to ensure we are getting the best bang for our buck. To make sure the “system” continues to function for most people. There will always be assholes. There will always be idiots. There will always be people who game the system, but that shouldn’t affect the vast majority of reasonable people who just want to live their lives.

That said, there is a lot of fun and comedy to be had in the discussions (not only here, but everywhere), that may in some way serve as meaningful to somebody reading. Being a writer, I like to explore the boundaries and limits of this. I’ll admit I have a propensity to go overboard sometimes. I won’t say I’m sorry for that, but I do think about it a lot.

Haven't you been here longer, visited more often, and posted way more frequently than I do?

Ah, the hypocrisy runs deep with this one.

Have you ever wondered:

Just what does Konan do with the remaining 23:55 minutes of his time during his days?

Eat things secretly you know you shouldn’t, and masturbate to internet porn? If I were an odds-maker...

He’s a young man, presumably under 30... a safe bet. Nothing wrong with jacking-off. It’s “natural” and healthy.

It’s you two who have dirty minds about it.

Stop projecting. You accused someone of eating and masturbation as if that was a bad thing. In fact they are the only reasons to get up in the morning.

Avoid people who believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa, but also avoid fanatics.

Fanatics are much more dangerous than the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus combined. With these biased and extreme individuals, it's just a matter of time before the "kool aid" gets passed.

Listen to Albert's story. The fanatics tried to recruit him, make him their poster child.


Albert Einstein, one of the most well-known physicists of the 20th century, was born into a secular Jewish family. As an adult, he tried to avoid religious labels, rejecting the idea of a “personal God,” but at the same time, separating himself from “fanatical atheists” whom he believed were unable to hear “the music of the spheres.”

Hello there CityBoy
That is interesting about Einstein. I never knew he was neither considering his family wasn't. It goes to show one can his or her own beliefs regardless of what surrounds them.

Whatever one's beliefs may, he or she must be happy with them. One shouldn't cringe when they meet someone who has a different belief. As brilliant as Einstein was, not believing God was his best "guess." But, more important, avoid the closed-minded and the biased. They are interested only in numbers and the loudest shouters couldn't care less about discovering "truths." They are much more harmful than the old Santa and the innocent bunny.

The best advice is to seek himself/herself. Don't follow someone because they shout louder. Remember, truth stands alone and isn't noisy.

They are interested only in numbers and the loudest shouters couldn't care less about discovering "truths." They are much more harmful than the old Santa and the innocent bunny.

The best advice is to seek himself/herself. Don't follow someone because they shout louder. Remember, truth stands alone and isn't noisy.
Absolutely I agree and there is nothing wrong in not believing in a god. Everyone is different.
But CityBoy you are becoming a poet,are you going to write something along the line of that very last sentence but that really stood out ?
