Pops has [reading] comprehension issues. When you are that deep in fantasy it is hard to follow reality.
No dick, I have seen that stupid assed ":consider:" so much it puts a bad taste in my mouth when I see it. Kinda like my Sig for some.

How easily your anger becomes unchecked. It is telling.
Consider

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Some of the volunteer fruitcakes were passing out stuff like this at the detention centre where I used to work. I guess Facebook educated people are more likely to read and empathize with it.

You think Consider is stupid?!?

Why would you think contemplating something beyond what is written to be stupid?

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

They are steeped in errant tradition started by evil powers that be under the guise of the rightly guided. Also modern society leads astray at a very young age in general.

Pops - please read what you said here over again and tell us how this would not apply to all religious teachings and it's proponents. Are you that deluded and self righteous that you can still stand by this statement?

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

That's Pops in a nutshell. He latches on to whatever feels good; actually thinking about things is a foreign concept.

Plenty of Christians read the bible. If they understand it at all they become atheists.

RE: Why don't Christians read their bibles?
I think that those who do only read it through the lens of John 3:16. I was having a texting discussion with my sister the other day and she said that Job 38 as god building up Job. I see it completely differently. I also think that so many bible studies/pastors cherrypick what they tell the people. This, coupled with the fact that so many will just lap that shit up without pondering the implications keeps this nonsense going.

No.

Not even in the slightest.
