Royalty should expire at 1 generation.  The next generation should have to start over.

on the opposite end of luck of the draw, consider Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. He will never emerge from a shit hole nor will he likely have such a cool mustache or haircut as this poor bastard.

I'll be sure and copy & paste that Joan. Napoleon, the guy works in a real shit hole. It's the luck of the draw that we were born where we were..

I wish I could be gentle and loving, but in the face of behaviors of self-centered, greedy, cruel and stupid, I can only report what I know religion to be: asinine, confused, contradictory, deceptive, deluded, disjointed, egregious, fallacious, false, fatuous, humorous, idiotic, illogical, implausible, inadequate, inchoate, incipient, incorrect, invalid, irrational, irrelevant, meaningless, misleading, mistaken, muddied, nutty, outrageous, phony, preposterous, rudimentary, silly, specious, unbelievable, unconvincing, unintelligible, unreasonable, unscientific, unsound. 

And I am having a good day! When I have a bad day I will reveal what I really think.

Peter, the "all knowing god" could not have added addendums to the gospels over the years, keeping up with changing times and people. Who would do the adding? Which tribal person or descendent of them? Who would believe it even if this did occur? The word "gospel" simply means "good news" and that good news is that "Jebus died for you." Nevermind the fact that we all die naturally anyway, and that the Old Testament god is a tyrant, the "supernaturalism " that we surround our "bible" with was a one time deal in which 66 books that are not even related came together as one story that they want everyone to believe. It's totally preposterous!

God can't add to the bible or the gospels because he did not write them. It's like giving god money. My method is to throw the money up in the air, and god can catch what he wants. What falls back down to earth is mine. God is imaginary!

Like my late grandfather used to say, people could do miraculous things in bible times. Once Moses tied his ass to a tree, and then he walked 40 miles! It took me a few years to get that one.

This is the big flaw with the god concept. This omniscient being would certainly have known all of this this (or at least added addendums to the gospels over the centuries to keep up with the changing times and people). 

I'd not thought of the rib story in a long time. wow.

Our modern concept of humanity is different from that of the ancients.  Specifically, in the case of modern western religion, that of ancient Canaanite tribal peoples.  Woman was created as an extension of man - from his rib - in order to keep him company and help him.  Woman was not created to serve god, she was created to serve man.

As for slaves, I think the idea of humans as being somehow "above" other animals, and therefore not something to be owned, bought, and sold, mistreated, punished, shipped, beaten.... is mostly a fairly modern, humanistic concept.  It certainly does not agree with biblical edict.   I think humanism, especially "humans should not be slaves" violates biblical teaching, and therefore is anti-christian.  Also anti-Hebrew and anti-Islamic, I imagine. 

Prior to the 19th century, I think most Euro-sapiens were not in a situation where they could imagine themselves as too special to be owned, or that other humans were too special to be owned.  I'm not 100% certain, but I think the same would be true for most Africa-sapiens, Asia-sapiens, and Ameri-sapiens.  I know too little about Australian pre-Euro invasion history to comment.

Believers are blissfully and willfully ignorant of their religious origins.  Or disingenuous about it.

The christian god concept is vulgar. I really should say the "abrahamic" god. Why wouldn't this all-knowing entity have been addressing human women as well as men when "he" inspired the books of the bible (and Qur'an)? I would cite "coveting another man's wife" as a great example. The writers lumped livestock and women in the same chattel kettle (along with slaves and land). 

Why is the ownership of other humans not discouraged in the form of a commandment (Thou shalt not buy and sell other people.)

Why do 'believers' discount these questions? To me they reflect how archaic "men" were when they wrote these books.

I suppose God thinks of the people of India about the same way he does of amputees, but if you live in America and belong to the Assemblies of God church, you will prosper!

Comment by Daniel W on July 17, 2013 at 7:30pm

Peter, of course god made heathens!  And he loves playing with them, creating disasters and watching them scurry around in a panic, like baby chickens as a hawk is circling overhead.  Especially the brown ones.  He likes the paler ones better, usually, but sometimes savors variety.   God is interesting that way.

At least that's what I was taught in Baptist Sunday school, more or less.
