bbyrd009 comments on Mar 18, 2020:
"existence" per se requires "objective evidence" for which we have none, but that does not mean "not real"
When I was a teenager and in a bad place, I believed that there was a God.
bbyrd009 comments on Mar 18, 2020:
contemplate a God that does not exist then, as weird as that maybe sounds; no literal old white guy with a beard, no "objective evidence" at all, *the Unknown God*
& not in the blood of Christ!
bbyrd009 comments on Mar 18, 2020:
nice imo, those who seek sacrificial blood are deemed "Esau" in the Bible, *give me some of that red stew, for i am so hungry i am about to die* see, and "pray" just meant "wish" when the Bible was xlated into english. Love the soap analogy :) *No son of man may die for another's sins;*

"If any non-falsifiable evidence of a god's existing came to light, I would be persuaded to change my mind." i doubt it wadr as that is an already famous contemplation, that suggests you are kidding yourself, but anyway then imo do yourself a favor, and ask Yah to show you some evidence, a blue feather if you will

bbyrd009 comments on Mar 10, 2020:
my understanding is that Hinduism was once much purer, effectively one God and everything, and then kind of deteriorated, as Christianity and i guess most religions do? I also heard that Hinduism was undergoing some kind of purifying, tearing down old temples that are not extant for the Supreme Diety in Hindu? Not sure which sect though. Has the treatment of women there historically been so bad? Always? ty, and my devout sympathies

bbyrd009 comments on Feb 27, 2020:
you might just be open to redefining your current def of "God," after all *I said "you are elohim,"* so Yah might get larger rather than smaller, so to speak, and as for getting along with Catholic relatives hey Catholics are awesome! At least at many things, "service" is actually a verb and not a noun to them, etc? So iow seek where you agree, and maybe overlook where you dont?

bbyrd009 comments on Feb 27, 2020:
fwiw there is no judgement for "beliefs" in the Bible, but only for works i guess. The Bible deems "beliefs" functionally irrrelevant, as they are invariably about the past or the future, yeh? Now i guess most instances of *have faith* have been tunred into "believe" by scribes, to help make the false case for "beliefs," agreeing with your premise i guess iow

bbyrd009 comments on Feb 24, 2020:
imo that is why it is really deemed a *love feast* in Scripture, and not "worship" per se as we define that today. Anyway what i am hearing is that it is maybe time for you to realize that "Church" is where you are, *a living stone* it's now a responsibility iow, maybe even to attend cult of sol "churches" and out the pov...ha assuming you have seen the light there barring that or in addition to it i would say that for someone who is ready to hear, wherever you are at can be made to be a love feast, ok, mom *makes* xmas right, so *I said "you are elohim"* just go do that light up faces :)

believe it or not the belief system we know as "Christians" today are actually really prolly Cult of Sol Invictus, with Jesus playing the role of Mercury, "returning" to take them to the Elysian Fields, in a dress, basically...and the Bible has all this in it, kinda in code, *Apollos waters* how weird is that? immortality has always been the ultimate escape, yeh *I came that you might have life, more abundantly* altho of course that rings as religious now anyway, a search of "Mithraism and..." will auto-complete for "Christianity" for more
I wish Christians would just be honest and say they have NO idea what happens when a person dies?

living among mithraists is hard, huh. i know this isnt what you wanna hear, but Jesus had basically the same problems? And of course--as counter-intuitive as this maybe seems--your mithraist community there is scared to death of the Bible, i could offer some Quotes if you like, *No son of man may die for another's sins, No one has ever gone up to heaven, Where I am going you cannot come, There is only One Immortal,* etc, but do yourself a favor and be very selective how you use them ok i dont struggle with them maybe bc i am mildly asperger's, or maybe bc i moved a lot growing up and dont identify with any particular location, or maybe i just detest religion, idk, but the point is kinda that if you dont want to find yourself in need of relocating, might be better to just overlook it. Yes, they are kinda desperate, but?

"My point is that in New Testament times, people were ignorant and superstitious and believed that people were Gods and that people could resurrect from the dead on the basis of very little evidence and lots of faith in the supernatural." until you Read with One Eye, surely

bbyrd009 comments on Dec 20, 2019:
nice, imo. But see that i can say that i know *of* Yah, even though i cannot say (even according to Scripture) that i *know* Him. an obvious corollary would be that even a scientist would estimate that we are only aware of slightly less than 5% of what we know must exist; recently up from about 4% i guess?

You and your sons will be here with me* (The then-dead Samuel (accepted), through the Witch of Endor, to Saul (rejected), after coming up from *out of the earth*, and saying *who disturbs my rest*) so yeh, skip the "Death More Abundantly" crap, imo... https://www.abarim-publications.com/ find the Jesus Who had Two Middle Fingers turned all the way up at the man! :) "baptizing ppl in the Jordan" is of course *sedition* in a theocracy, yeh? and fwiw *Gehenna*--xlated to us (by scribes) as "hell"--is a place on *earth* "the best cure for Christianity is reading the Bible" SClemens

a couple thought questions, that you might relate to yours: why could a prepubescent teen declare "i hate you" to their parents, the only two ppl supporting them? Arent the decisions of the parents "logical?" Which of the Decalogue do you have issues following? I guess like at least 5 of these predate Moses, likely from Hammurabi's Code. So, it might be impossible for you/us to understand the logic in "all the pain and death that takes place" mostly bc of our unique perspective, which naturally suggests to us that things were better yesterday than they are today, despite the reality that life is better right now than it ever has been, by any measure you might care to use, https://www.wikiwand.com/en/List_of_freedom_indices , http://www.moralityindex.com these are the good old days :) ps, "logic" rose about the same time "Jesus" did, more or less, right? Before that most everyone thought "naively," or in what we call the "eastern dialectic" now, hence why Orientals play baseball games to deliberate ties and whatnot i guess. ok peace

bbyrd009 comments on Aug 12, 2019:
"Imagine for a moment that the concept of god never existed" the problem imo is that this is not really cognizant of how our concept of gods and God formed; beliefs do not develop out of thin air, yeh? And fwiw God hates religion more than you do, the OT is a record of the failure of a theocracy, right? "Believers" are roundly condemned throughout the Bible as opposed to Doers who refused to acknowledge a king--Samaritans and other rebel types, iow--and refused to even walk the same side of the street as Priests and Levites if a fellow human was in need. So wisdom might be hidden from the wise after all?

"We need more understanding, and to realize we can not control each other" i guess this will seem apropos of nothing, but eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge...just doesnt work like that, yeh? bc...everybody knows. right? And our egos demand that the dumber we get, the more we profess to know. Ergo we--in an Empire in Decadence--are in this like calcified pinecone state of near drooling insistence that our views are the only valid ones, but at least we're better than Believers eh? lol as to your point, paraphrasing here, "the mass killings will continue until the guns are surrendered" i'm sure. What we dont know, and few will bother to find out, is whether serial killings are some new aberration or are historically correlated, but even as we already know the answer to that we also know that that will not matter, bc what is being reported does, yeh?

fwiw the hell your daughter fears is not in the Bible anyway--believe it or not--but was translated into It by our Angle/Saxon scribes from the Norse concept, which was the closest analogy they had. Gehenna is on earth, and Tartarus is a Greek god, and these were meant to be analogies anyway, not to be taken literally. Loved your answer tho!

An atheist might be uniquely positioned to break out of the bell curve and plant a spike in the earth, why not? We don't much get to choose how we live, but we do get to choose how we die huh.
God created nature or are we an evolution of bio organisms first?

Preparing your whole life to meet God is Mithraism, not Christianity. God hates religion as much as you do I'm sure

Christianity is a fraud religion since it is based on two events that never happened; a virgin birth...

Well so you say, but wadr "the virgin will be with child" would have been understood to be a ref to the Athena wisdom school at the time, and ones "resurrection" is supposed to happen at baptism, but trust me Mithraist Christians are totally ignoring that too. Peace

It might, but I think we are called to judge ourselves so to speak in this way, we being basically extracted from Christian stock? Almost all professed Christians are really mithraists anyway; Death More Abundantly

*"...after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power."* it's in Corinthians somewhere. Don't be letting the deceived ("believers") guide you in your reading imo, those guys in the Bible were all Anarchs on the run from the law ok

I'm guessing m de Waal just had an overweening desire to become an immortal, like most believers, and so prolly missed that Peter's warning about Paul was for him, "He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction." That being the same Paul who clearly stated "test everything, and keep what is true."

"Another folly of moderns is to think that the ancients were primitive, superstitious and all together not too clever. In stead, these people were precisely as intelligent as we are today, but their heads weren't filled with the vast library of distractions we treat ourselves to on a daily basis. Our knowledge and their knowledge do not relate like, say, a child's drawing versus the schematic of the space shuttle, but are of similar height and depth but with different focal points. They didn't have iron not because they didn't know how to work it, but simply because that's not what their society was going for. In other words: their men of wisdom had better things to do than figure out how to make steel, and where we today are great at making implements of destruction, they were great at things we know nearly nothing about. What's left of their legacy has for long been dubbed fables and mythology, but most recent times has seen an increasing urge of researchers to brave the truth: we are the stupid ones, not they..." ibid

Nice imo :) The Bible specifically states that there are no "persons" involved, but believers don't wanna read that of course. Any four year old could describe a "spirit" perfectly fine I guess

Imo none of the above, and literal Armageddon is as old as Ragnarok. We've been through prolly a couple near-extinctions already, and the world keeps turning I guess

I'm not sure how open she would be to "Jesus = lucifer" lol, even if it is maybe true in a sense ("...and I create evil;I the LORD do all these things") but some other Scripture might, "there is only One Immortal, no one has ever gone up to heaven," and then maybe you could hit her with the lucifer thing later lol
