I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

It IS totally different when you are looking in from the outside, after being a part of the religion. I admit that I haven't read the bible, but I am currently reading the Brick Testament. I assume this 'version' makes fun of the buybull in many ways, but all I keep thinking is "If someone tried to publish this today, it would never happen!" It is so bad! What ridiculous stories that make NO sense, whatsoever. Talk about holes in the plot and inconsistencies!

The arrogance of xians...that was something I didn't notice till I started looking at it from the outside.  Plane crash survivor: "Gawd was looking after me (but not the other passengers; they all died).

Or, when a woman's granddaughter was murdered, "Gawd is testing my faith (because I'm important)."  Why would an all-knowing super-being need to test anything?  She/he/it would already know what's going to happen.

I'm still embarrassed that I used to believe all that crap.  Reading the buybull from cover to cover (twice!) was the last straw for me.

Right you are Paula! God's plan is not moral. Just read the bible .. I did It helped me become an Atheist.

No one stops to think about the morality of gawd's plan...or more precisely, the immorality. "he can do what he want's cuz he's god!" I call BS. Would any one of us cause the type of wounds the woman in the article had endured for any type of plan? nah, because we are better than their fake loving, omnipotent deity.

Sad story. Just another example of how prayer obviously works and how god clearly favors her. No mention of science or technology or skilled physicians that helped god out.

Heh!  They might try Shakespeare, or other literary sources.  That would be fun.  Or maybe some quotes from entertainment celebs....such as George Carlin: "God LOVES you!  And He needs MONEY!"

I'm fond of Robert A. Heinlein: Make up your own mind.  Before you do that, think it through.  Before thinking about it, get the facts.

So people are making up plaques to cover over the verses with quotes from other religious texts, right? Right?

Comment by sk8eycat on May 12, 2012 at 11:09pm

Maybe they're afraid the boogey-man will get them if they remove the magic spells.

I think that's the way they feel about putting IGWT on our money, and adding the "undergod" to the Pledge of Allegiance spell.

I don't know why but the number of people who don't understand "it's against the law for government to endorse any religion" still amazes me. This is not a theocracy and shouldn't act like one. As others have said, ifa verse from the Koran replaced the buy-bull verse, they would be up in arms demanding the removal of the signs. Hypocrites.

Looks like the town of Sylvania is NOT removing what they said they would remove.
