RE: The 'Good Person' Test
Am I the only one who took the test and gave all the "right answers"? Just to see what would happen.

I did, and lo and behold, just more preaching about sinning. I figure it would at least say, "Well shit, good on you for being a good person."

Nope, just a paragraph about everyone being evil...and of course the kool-aid about how to make up for it.

Then again, I was lying. Fuck, how did they know? Gasp

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Actually, that test wasn't new to me. I found it on YouTube over a year ago. It's one of Ray Comfort's video's. Dodgy

By my standard their god is a lying, bigoted, murderous, incompetent, evil jackass. Does that make us even?

RE: The 'Good Person' Test
Not sure if this an atheist website or not but it tears apart the "Good person" test pretty good.If you're interested in reading the whole thing.

Here is a sample, which made me think that maybe I've never actually taken the lord's name in vain (not that I give a shit about that):

[Image: good-person-4.jpg]

Almost everyone that Living Waters accuses of "taking the lord's name in vain" are 100% innocent. Saying something like "God Dammit" is NOT taking the lord's name in vain because it does not involve the use of the lord's name. God is what the lord is, it is not his name. His name is Yahweh, so only if one said "Yahweh Dammit" would they be taking the lord's name in vain.

The entire reason why Christians today say "God" instead of "Yahweh" is so they WON'T be taking the lord's name in vain. This commandment is from the Jewish belief that one should not say their god's name out loud. This is why Hebrew scriptures say Yahweh (not God or Lord) but in Hebrew verbal traditions they would say "god" instead of their god's name. When scripture was copied to Greek the verbal tradition was accidentally applied to the written words, removing the god's name. Since our English bibles are based on Greek translations the error is included. In reality, what reads as "Don't take the Lord's name in vain" in English Bibles actually reads as "Don't take Yahweh's name in vain" according to scripture.

Yep, there's a bunch of videos of Ray asking these questions to people on the street. I even saw one where he asked them of Richard Dawkins at some event and he had the best answer: Fuck off. The audience gave him a round of applause.
