Atheists

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

I’ve been reading postings from a proclaimed atheists on Facebook. I have no problem with someone being an atheist. nor if someone holds various religious viewpoints (as long as their goal isn’t too kill me). What I do have an issue with is when someone tries to argue their point without really understanding the issues.

Look, the Bible can be very complicated at times, especially when dealing with the Old Testament and various translations from the Greek and Hebrew languages. It is very easy to go into the Bible, pull out a couple of lines and say “Look how foolish this is! They believe in unicorns! They say the wife of a deceased husband should have sex with all of his brothers (it really doesn’t say, that last part is taken out of context from the laws of Levirate marriage).!”

If one is going to make any of those claims, or others, as examples as to what Christians or other religious groups belief, please do your homework. You should research the word “re’em” or how “sa‘ir” was translated into satyr in the King’s James version of the bible (sa‘ir is referring to wild goats, not a half-man/half-beast creature).

Once you do your research you can actually start to make an argument based on reason and logic. Just remember reason and logic cannot prove or disprove God as you are talking about faith. Lastly, don’t tell me you know all this stuff because your parents were “born-again Christians”. That is a logical fallacy of an argument if I ever heard one. My mom taught Sunday school but I won’t use that as a basis for defending my arguments.

Luke verses 8 through 14

Saturday, December 25th, 2010

?”And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And th…e angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.”

The Religion of Peace

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Or so claim many Muslims that follow Islam. No doubt they believe in peace as long as you follow their rules and beliefs. Failure to do that, well they might kill you.

Take for example Molly Norris, a cartoonist in Seattle, Washington. That is she used to be Molly Norris and used to live in Seattle, but since she started a satirical  “Everybody Draw Mohammed Page” page on Facebook (since removed by Facebook, cowards), she has had to go into hiding. The religion of peace doesn’t take kindly to people drawing pictures of Mohammed, violates their religious beliefs. For doing this, Norris had to move and change her name because Anwar al-Awlaki called for her assassination.

As I’ve said before, there are moderates Muslims, there is no moderation in Islam. Imagine if a priest in the Catholic Church called for the assassination of someone that made a satirical page on Facebook about Jesus. People would be in an uproar, liberals would be having a major fit. Not so with Islam, don’t want to offend them.

Think about that.
