Yes! Crazy, fascinating, disturbing. Try Constantine's Sword. That'll blow you away. I'll give you a little synopsis: Jesus, if he existed at all, was Jewish living in a fractionalized Jewish world under Roman rule. It appears his goal, in a religious sense, was to unify the Jews. The first ...

clarkatticus comments on Mar 17, 2018:
Read the Oxford History of Christianity. I know they don't mean to but they spell out exactly how it evolved from other religions and cultures. That is what every religion is, a lawyer would call it precedent. Religion was (is) the science of the time, simple explainations for people too weak or ...

yes, may be too harsh to call people weak or lazy, especially when (until the Gutenberg bible?) people were not allowed access to knowledge

Civility and Governance is collapsing around our heads in the United States. Our vice president is near to, if not in fact a christian domininist. He will likely be our next POTUS, sooner or a bit later. This as we are near at war with serious and potent enemies. Lack of concern would verge on ...
crazycurlz replies on Mar 17, 2018:
Is civility and governance really collapsing around our heads? Pre-Trump we were all apathetic. Look at us now. Energized. Caring about our Constitution, getting informed. Especially the millenials. Trump and his idiot cronies ARE shocking but I'm optimistic still.

crazycurlz replies on Mar 17, 2018:
Nicole, 'Hitler was indifferent to religion...'. but he killed a lot of people and his main target were the Jews, LGBTQ, gypsies, disabled, vulnerable minorities. Many, many Christians were brave enough CHRISTIAN enough to speak out, act in defense of these minorities. But, there's no question church leadership, overall, was culpable if only in their silence. Not so today. Germany under Chancellor Merkell is remarkable in her determination to keep the record straight: Germany will not embrace neo Nazis. AND look at where we are in this country. So many white Americans, even amongst the many that voted for Trump, are NOT racists, not in favor of waving the rebel flag. I think it's okay IMPORTANT even for Christianity to reflect on its history. And, one more thing, to put the record straight...according to (PEW, southern poverty law, ACLU) the white hate groups ARE responsible in the US for most acts of violence. This IS different between US and UK...I know yours are Islamic terrorists and I fear we are headed in that direction too.
Wondering if anyone else is afraid of this.
TimothyIII comments on Mar 17, 2018:
I certainly share a concern about religion incerting itself in the affairs of the nation. Christian doctrine controlling laws and lawmakers is no different that the Taliban, just a different religion. Having a con man who uses religion as a tool holding the highest post in the government is a ...
crazycurlz replies on Mar 17, 2018:
I think the Taliban, to date, is much, much worse than what we've seen in the Christian politicians, as a whole, in the US. Trump and the so-called religious right only make up 1/3 of voters in this country and look at the reaction...the democrats are electrified/unified. You would never see that under the Taliban. Granted, I believe that's because of our Constitution and separation of Church and State but there's some incredibly ethical, moral religious people (Christians, Jews, Muslims, I mean Western, Eastern, tribal...all inclusive)
Wondering if anyone else is afraid of this.
nicknotes comments on Mar 17, 2018:
When the Christians controlled the governments in Europe in the "dark ages" they murdered Atheists, Homosexuals, Jews, and anyone who didn't follow their religion. Be aware that if they ever take control again they will put a stake up your rectum and roast you like a pig.
crazycurlz replies on Mar 17, 2018:
nicknotes, yes to this. The difference between the Christians of Europe in the dark ages and us now, in simplest terms, is the separation of church and state.

Well said phxbilicee, on all counts. And how fragile are these freedoms? Losing our constitutional rights would plunge us all into a deep dark medieval space.

But, isn't that a generalization? And, if it is happening in churches (I have no doubt it is because of their missionary work), shouldn't that be our focus, (if we all were to have a focus): it wouldn't be about condemning people for developing their own relationships to God or not, it would be to go after the instigators. Or is yours the same argument that we take against those who say the problem is people not guns. Just saying this problem has probably vexed all of us, to some degree, for a long time, if not forever

How old was everyone when they discovered Atheism or Agnosticism before they became one?
GipsyOfNewSpain comments on Mar 7, 2018:
Same questions every week... I reckon nobody search previous questions anymore.
crazycurlz replies on Mar 7, 2018:
hahaha Gipsy, I wasn't on last week and from my perspective, appreciate that this post is here today. Maybe you'll have to be the one to interject dynamic topics every week.
Have you ever gotten a kick out of an enemy’s misfortune?

Daily..I love watching the Orange tool self destruct!!!
crazycurlz replies on Mar 6, 2018:
I want him out, but, to me, it's painful watching him in the throes of self-destruction. Maybe I can't help but feel he's taking us all down with him...

You're getting your information from questionable sources if you're putting the leaders of Israel on terrorist lists.

Do you feel as lonely as I do?

I feel the same most of the time. Unable to express yourself in a red area basically.

How do you express hope or emphathy to someone who is dealing with a terminal desase?
AuntieM comments on Mar 3, 2018:
I'm a hospice nurse, so I'm a little biased on this topic. But as a casual acquaintance, I would say something along the lines of, "I'm so sorry you're having to go through this." Then be prepared to listen. And be present. Most people need that more than any offers of "If there's anything I can ...

AuntieM, I didn't see your post until after I posted mine...I have hospice nursing experience, too and really appreciate your comment.
Are you in favour of a revolution?
Reignmond comments on Feb 27, 2018:
Our government has become unsustainably corrupt, so a rebellion is needed soon or there will be nothing American about it and nothing worth saving. Though I voted for Bernie (write-in), I did prefer the election of Glupyy Trump over Corrupt Hillary. The reason was I view Hillary and her ilk as ...
crazycurlz replies on Feb 27, 2018:
The only salvation to having Trump in office is that Mueller is hot on his heels. I also wanted Bernie. I could never have ticked a box for Trump.

I think the benevolent dictator idea has a lot going for it. Provided it's me.

What was your favorite food as a kid?
crazycurlz comments on Feb 25, 2018:
Almost ashamed to admit to these, orange_girl: Pop Tarts and Spaghettios. hahaha! Every few YEARS I get nostalgic. What WAS the attraction??? Thanks for fun post, orange. :)
crazycurlz replies on Feb 27, 2018:
Spaghettios ARE gross hahaha my palate was all about hot dogs and PB&J as a kid. Jacpod, are you raising the next generation of heathens? :) I was a purist, I only ate the round Os. I don't even think the alphabet type was around when I was a kid!
