kiramea comments on Jan 30, 2018:
I always believed that God didn't want me to starve or go without, so I only gave when I could. When the church I was going to kept asking for money (sometimes 4 times in a service for various things) I stopped completely. I was not about to be a party to excessive greed.

EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 28, 2018:
It’s so weird. I’ve never tried to be like my dad, but turns out I have no control. My mom was heavily into church and I Rene we going at the early Age if 5 while my dad was away in Germany for military business. As long as I could remember, I don’t ever really recall seeing my dad attend church. If he did go, it was to go for my mom, but I don’t remember him a steady church goer or it lasting very long, My younger brother is exactly the same way, but my sister and mom are hard church goers and will always make religious pose on Facebook. I’ve never liked church at all and till this day I still don’t like it, yet loved ones are convinced I had a bad church experience and the rebellious teenage girl is still within me somewhere, but I know b.s when I hear it.

Scientist announces a laser so powerful it can tear empty space
ChestRockfield comments on Jan 27, 2018:
Get used to it being other countries that do cool shit. The US is too busy debating whether or not we should have Jesus in schools instead of pushing science and math.
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 28, 2018:
IKR! I feel so ashamed to be American. Been considering to leave the country.
To those who were raised in a religious household, what made you abandon your family's beliefs?
IndySent comments on Jan 27, 2018:
Intense bible study made me realize how ridiculous religion was. Actually reading the scriptures, then questioning the elders about what I read, and getting either unsatisfactory answers, or being shamed for questioning God’s Word really made me think critically. I was eventually kicked out of ...
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 28, 2018:
Yep! Typical church people when the questions get too hard. No one can never tell me where Cain’s wife came from.
If you could go back in time and undo something in your past, would you?

I turned down a very good job offer because I was convinced it was not God's will for me. If I had accepted it my life would have taken a much better course and I would have made much more money. Sucks that I was a Christian then.
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 27, 2018:
That does suck. Damn religion poisoning everything.

Too many things in the bible did not make sense to me. I always babysat my younger brothers and sister and cousins and family friends children. I could not accept god killing the first born of the Egyptians who were innocent children. What kind of god shows his power by killing the most innocent and...

Not much of a god at all unless it is a god created in man’s perspective.
If you could get rid of any emotion, which one would it be?

@phxbillcee very true.

LeighShelton comments on Jan 27, 2018:
you need sorrow as it makes you compassionate unless you want to be a serial killer.
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 27, 2018:
That’s a good way to put it.
Was sex more fun when you still believed in original sin?
EmeraldJewel comments on Jan 26, 2018:
Well...it feels good to know the divine spy camera in the sky isn’t watching me when I’m having sex and being a complete creep and pervert about it, so I’d have to say it is that more enjoyable without the original sin thing.
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
@EricTrommater I literally almost died of laughter at your comment.
Have you ever felt depressed and singled out while single on Valentine’s Day?
GipsyOfNewSpain comments on Jan 26, 2018:
Nope. Have you? Want to tell us about it?
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
I used to when I was in jr. high, but I guess at that time, it is common for girls that age lol.

I have not. If I want flowers, chocolates, and an orgasm, I can take care of that myself. :D

Opposing Abortion and Stigmatizing Single Motherhood
Lisl comments on Jan 26, 2018:
Yikes, what a question. I have made this choice. I didn't want to be a single mom. Still wouldn't want to be one...would have been nice to have kids with a partner interested in sticking around, but that wasn't the situation at hand. Plus, in America... you don't always have health care. Being a ...
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
I agree 100%!!! Well said.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how annoyed are you when the religious try to mix science with belief!
TheMiddleWay comments on Jan 26, 2018:
1. Life must be hell for people that get annoyed over people that pursue different thoughts than them. :P

Hahaha!

@jlynn37 ikr! All the religion killed their brain cells.

Wildgreens comments on Jan 26, 2018:
10 - I feel like religion wants to take the credit away from science. Religion wants to talk science When it's convenient for religion. There's no place In science when it comes to belief.
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
The ironic thing is the religious used to kill scientist on the past, now want to take credit for science.

BucketlistBob comments on Jan 26, 2018:
More amused then anything else... see how they're struggling to prove their point. We don't have to prove anything. Show me the god and we can talk about his love..... it's all bullshit.
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
Lol another YouTuber Christian troll came for me, asking for proof that god set up Adam and Eve to fail so I had to explain to them. I guess all that religion ate whatever was left of their brain cells.

Jnei comments on Jan 26, 2018:
Actually, that doesn't bother me - it's so nonsensical it's like when a small child tries to claim it was the cat that drew a picture in felt-tip pen on the new wallpaper. Bless their little cotton socks for trying.
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
Lol since you put it like that, now that is funny. I actually had a 50 something year old woman tell me that the reason scientist discovered earth a lot older than six thousand is cause god had to put the earth on pause while he was handling the devil at the time of him kicking him out of Heaven. I kid you not.
I thought this was just beyond funny.

It's kinda funny right before the lion makes his first attack, when he kinda looks back at his wife like, "Can you believe this idiot?"
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
Lol I got that, too. That was funny.

it didn't pan out for him then pmsl. doesn't he remember the Romans feeding Christians to lions? I had an old friend come around who has changed into a religitard and he started staring my dogs down. they growled at him and I asked what the fuck are you doing. he said god will save me. I said he is ...
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
Yep I was just thinking about what the Romans used to do to the Christians and had a dark fantasy if that rule were to come back I get so angry at times.

ToakReon comments on Jan 26, 2018:
Sometimes christians say something scientifically valid - and when they do, their words are as sensible as anyone else's. The problem is that when christians try to use science to back their beliefs, when they almost invariably descend into nonsense and 'pseudo science' which is as invalid as the...
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
It’s not just Christians, though. It can be any religious groups of people, but I do see your point.

jlynn37 comments on Jan 26, 2018:
Science and belief simply do NOT and can NOT mix. It is an oxymoron.(IMHO)
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
Exactly! That’s my point. They’re desperate to stay true to their belief.

Since you made the scale 1 to 10, I say 19
EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
Ha that was my mistake. I should have made he scale higher.
If attempting to convert others to a religion became illegal tomorrow, how would you feel about it?

EmeraldJewel replies on Jan 26, 2018:
It’s quite annoying. If their religion doesn’t add up to reality/ science then maybe they need to reconsider their belief cause something isn’t right.
Teach the children well
arnies comments on Jan 26, 2018:
Looks liek Satan has a lot of work to do. Truthfully I would rather they believe in witchcraft than what this guy is selling. My kids are smarter than that anyhow. My daughter might believe in God, but I feel that she is still on the fence a bit. My son is very much not into anything ...

We should get a sign that says that and all should stand outside.
