    I can find crazy atheists too, so what's your point?
  2. I consider what I do along the same lines as what steve colbert or jon stewart do. educate by finding ridiculous shit and expose it with humor. an added bonus is it hopefully gets people to think about what they believe and why.

    The way to deal with superstition is not to be polite to it, but to tackle it with all arms, and so rout it, cripple it, and make it forever infamous and ridiculous. Henry Louis Mencken
  3. People shouldn't be mind-numbed robots for the left or the right, They need to think for themselves. I can't stand Bono (of U2)'s left wing crap, but I like it when he said, "The God I worship ain't short on cash".

    Free Thinker is one of those mind-numbed robots for the left, a clear useful idiot. [​IMG]

  5. There is a group of people in this country who simply refuse to pay their mortgages or other bills. They are called the democrat base.
  6. "tithing comes before your mortgage or bills"

    And taxes come before all of that.

    you are becoming a bitter old man.

    If you believe God is in charge and you believe he stated that your gifts and offerings will come back 100x times, you should be able to organize your life in a way that allows gifts to good churches.
    (you can define good).

    My church does not ask for a tithe. But, when offer things such as my time or money I believe it has a beneficial effect in my life in many ways in many reasons.

    You know the bible speaks about being a good caretaker.
    And via anecdote I cite you to churches in rancho sante fe. They have very generous contributors.

    What came first for the people giving the money... the wealth... or the responsibility they manifested with it at smaller levels?
    I know what I have witnessed. Small sample size but very clear correlations.

    So as someone said earlier in this thread .. as Bono said... God aint short on cash.

    Fair enough, but those two draw from a much larger body of material than you do.
  9. what if fast talking preachers delude people into believing that as a means of lining their pocket? does nobody have a duty to call bs? we dont allow secular scam artists to prey on gullible people. why should preachers get away with it?
