    Oldcabinetmaker, . . . I have a gmail account with my name [all one word]. Much of the book deals with biblical verses, but I even state within the book that if I got something wrong, I would listen to criticism. But mostly, my agnosticism/atheism has to do with a lack of seeing anything credible in the god claims, even IF there had been nothing I personally found at fault with the bible. Mostly, I could not longer be hypocritical about “being a christian” when there was not a “relationship with any god figure”. “Faith” that it was happening wasn’t enough.

    Sgt. Cookies, . . . as I was saying, “faith” left me empty. My book is about my past christian religion, but I have no more “faith” in any religion. I definitely do not hate christians. I cannot “hate a deity”. I would have to first believe in it to hate it.

    As for “faith that other people have”, . . . my book doesn’t really cover that, but there are others who have and have gone into a deeper study of just that aspect, so I’ll leave the subject with them.

    So, to restate, . . . it was my case against my own “faith” that wasn’t true for me. I hope that explains it well enough. Let me know if it doesn’t.

    Ken, . . . THAT . . . .is a true statement.

    Having said that, . . . if a person actually needs certain types of drugs [because they're dangerous without them], then I may reluctantly agree that it is more important that they are on meds.

    I can’t “cry out” to someone who isn’t there. . . . . not if I’m honest.

    I had my dealings with “christian counseling”. It was the most useless endeavor I ever went through.

    Thanks. Glad you liked it.

    I think I’d rather get advise from a licensed psychologist. Thanks anyway, Mr. Warren.

    Sorry about the son, though.

    There are “hateful and violent” verses in yours, too.

    It’s interesting that Hobby Lobby is fine with abortion and restricted religious rights when they get SO many of their products from China.

    Seems to be reading into what happened, based on his [Becks] own religion. If his dad “saw something”, . . . we won’t know what that was. ” ‘Yes? OK. I understand. I’m ready. Take me with you.’” Not a lot of further explanation there.

    My condolences, however, for the passing.

    Or rather, . . . it’s not like they were proposing it be, “God Is Dead Recess”. That’s the way I really wanted to post that last sentence.

    Hockey is about the only professional sports I care to watch. Puts the others to shame.

    I’m amazed at the vitriol for something as benign as a name change [to Winter Recess]. It’s not called “God Is Dead Recess”. :-/

    Cavallo, . . . . where do you get that from? Pagans would use Yule. :-/

    She is truly talented. She has other videos that also have a very dramatic texture to the environment she’s playing in. Loved this one.

    Sirhan, . . . when I made the point that the Qur’an was a man made book, it is based upon the evidence that all other books have also been man made. Even some which claimed divine involvement. They can’t prove that either.

    As for your “proofs of god” in nature, . . . . I agree that nature is often overwhelmingly amazing. There are things the earth produces that blow the mind, . . . like geodes, crystals, and even the forces behind magnetism. I am always amazed at the neodymium magnets I have collected. The “unseen power” of them is truly awesome. If “god” merely makes up nature, then I’m fine with a detached “deist” type of “god”, . . . but that same force isn’t person to me.

    Correct. But Robertson seems to think that the purpose for a man and woman to marry is to produce offspring. I’m just not sure why people tend to listen to a man just because he happens to own a TV show. He doesn’t “know more than others”, based on him having a TV show.

    Anyway, I do agree with you, LestWeForget.

    It’s amazing that people listen to a guy . . . because he’s on TV.

    As for “gays produce nothing” and “marriage is for the production of life”, . . . what if one of the spouses can’t have children? Should they not get married either? What about older people who absolutely don’t plan having children at their ages?

    The world is over populated. People shouldn’t “have kids just because they can”. That lacks foresight.

    Sirhan, . . . I thought I mentioned it, . . . but in case I didn’t, I will restate.

    There really isn’t anything in the Qur’an that will “prove it’s from god”. Human made books can only offer opinions on a topic. What will prove any god [to me] is a personal experience that cannot be denied.

    If this is still not good enough, let me know.

    One last thing, . . . I don’t claim that “there IS no god”, . . . I just have yet to find anything credible that points that direction of “a god”. After that could be done, . . . then it would begin the task of determining which of the thousands of “god claims” is actually true. That a person “fully believes it” is still anecdotal.

    What would make a difference . . . . is something that humanity isn’t up for. There are quite a few people out there who have far more money than they could use in their lifetime, and their kid’s and grandkid’s lifetimes. For what it’s worth, . . . the money is useless. It sits in a person’s bank account that doesn’t need it and never will. . . . but it just sits there. . . . .again, useless. There is rampant poverty around the world. Human suffering that most of us are probably unaware of, yet those uber rich keep their money useless just so they can pat their ego about how much money they have.

    Governments around the world don’t care about the plight of their people. They are more interested in themselves and their living standards. They may be a dictator. They may be crooked. It is doubtful that they will change their ways. And sadly, people won’t even realize it, yet will “look up to their leader”.

    I would say that many places in 3rd world countries could benefit from a healthy dose of reproductive deterrents. If your resources are struggling, . . . more people being born is not the answer.

    Just a few thoughts.
