I was looking at that on Amazon and then saw this:

Found some quotes from it here

Quote:When you have God doing something that any human being with an IQ north of 60 can do better and smarter, you got a lousy god!

Quote:Genesis is a fucking cartoon—plagiarized from a Babylonian cartoon that they plagiarized from a Sumerian cartoon—our best guess as to who we are and where we came from at a time when we knew absolutely nothing about anything!

What boggles my mind is not whether they think *we* are that dumb (we are just means of winning brownie points with their imaginary god monster of choice anyway, not like they give a fuck about us one way or another) but whether they think said god-monster is that dumb?

Then again, it does say it made us in its own image, and if they're judging by themselves, the bar ain't set too high Drinking Beverage

Do you now?

In your heart of hearts, honestly, do you ACTUALLY expect that prayer to be answered? Or to be anything other than a turn-off in these quarters?

Or are you just reflexively reciting an incantation, like warding off the evil eye or something?

How much do you actually care about our souls? Given that you haven't made the effort to engage honestly and humbly with any of us to understand our thinking by participating meaningfully in this thread, you would be unable to take even the first step to change our minds. Which leads me to believe that you don't really give a fig if anyone gets "saved" or not. You are just spouting.

I do this sometimes when under a lot of stress. Helps with my OCD. Is also how I realised I wasn't religious anymore. Still remember where I was (in my recliner Big Grin )

You plead with your insane master to save us from himself for the crime of not kissing his arse? Very generous of you to try and get him to see reason.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.
