Ah, that's what was novel. Brilliant!

I think also that you're missing that Christianity's unique "turn the other cheek/passive resistance" stance made it ideal for making sure that subjects would always be "wrong" if they sought violent resistance.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

I'm pretty sure it's original.

I'm pretty sure one of the yoga branches of Hinduism taught or teaches something kinda familiar.

It follows along the Adam/Eve story...tree of knowledge. No talking snake tho. Later someone else redeems the cursed ones.

But it's been decades since I read about it...could be wrong.

I agree. There's a lot of shit like that in the bible. Specifically, bullshit like that.

Quote:And as far as your second question, if I can save just one person on here, then I've done a good thing.

That may be the one thing I sometimes regret about not seeing any reason to believe in an afterlife...if I'm wrong I will get the chance to learn that but if I'm right believers will never get the chance to see how much evil they did by getting people to wallow in fear and ignorance.

Quote:Third, if you want to hear God's message, just wait..because on judgement day, you will hear him loud and clear.

Yep, when all else fails, threats are the way to go.

There was a brief sidebar potato salad discussion that is currently unresolved.

...but the arguments made are far more compelling than the other religious debate on this thread....

That's all he has, along with a dose of "I don't understand the science"

I'm neutral on the issue...potato salad is good with any kind of potato as far as I'm concerned. Damn, now I want some potato salad.
