    I’ve been to the bottom… at least twice now. I know that no one is looking out for me. I know that relying on God never helped me. If it’s to be, it’s up to me. I suppose you have experienced otherwise, but I though it worth pointing out.

    @LCDR

    blinknight gave no indication that he/she was unhappy. This sounds more like a failure of cognition on your behalf, as you may be assuming that either someone criticizing religion/deity or someone not worshipping your religion/deity is unhappy. That is an awfully large leap. Even if blink was unhappy, would lack of a religion or deity be the cause or merely a coincidence, possibly a correlation?

    Was it not man who decided biblical canon? Does that not cast doubt on your argument considering man decided what was to be closed canon – the very Bible you consider God’s word?

    Lol!

    Actually, you’re closer than you think. Many times it seems as if people don’t vote “for” anyone, merely “against.” It’s too bad the system often leaves us with two (usually horrible) choices.

    I wonder if a campaign manager is getting fired? Eeep.

    Shouldn’t her actions see the backlash of those who have experienced sexual assault?

    I’m not sure that’s the type of outrage they are willing to spark. If they do play it that way, those politicians are either arrogant as hell, stupid, or both. Those people won’t be going to the ballot box to cast votes, they’ll be burning the voting centers down. It’s too bad, as there are some individuals in there that really want things to settle down, but they’re trapped in that situation.

    “get over it…”

    I wouldn’t call that any response other than a self-serving means to end discussion. They obviously aren’t over it, so get over it. Regardless of whether the cop’s actions were reasonable, they obviously have grievances to air. I don’t necessarily agree with those grievances at all, nor do I think that crowd is anything close to reasonable, but telling someone to “get over it” is minimization – essentially a tactic to manipulate your way through not discussing anything, as you deem it too trivial. That never helps anything. Just a thought.

    @SLEAZYHIPPOs

    If you take it from a theistic perspective, then yes, your assumption may be correct. (I say may be correct, as even some Christians don’t believe in the personification of evil as Satan represents.) However, take it from an agnostic or atheist perspective and you’ll see that one signed up for BOTH the marine corps AND the army to serve the same commander-in-chief (theistic) and the other doesn’t believe in the commander-in-chief or the army or marine corps, but likes their “representative qualities” (atheistic.)

    49Panhead,
    Perhaps, yes. I’ve seen Christian Institutions perpetuate evil to stop evil. Why do you think Evangelicals want to bomb middle eastern countries? To stop Islam, of course – something they view as evil. Evil begets evil, yet these people see no other choice, despite that their God (Jesus) taught otherwise. Does it make sense, now?

    @Wodanaz,

    Lol!

    The-Monk,

    I have a glimpse, an inkling, of what you are saying. I would agree that LaVey teaches egoism on steroids, but I only have limited knowledge of it. Thank you for the response, by the way. I’m trying to figure all of this out.

  • [1] October 17, 2014 at 10:46am

    I don’t necessarily agree with your views on the Bible, Jesus, etc., but I like the fact that you are thinking in such a matter – it means you are more than merely “reactionary” like so many other people. That’s awesome.

    @UpstateNY_Proud,

    First of all, thank you for actually inquiring and not just down-voting me like some brainless idiot with “Democratic Man” syndrome. Second, to address your question: Christian Institutions, such as the Catholic Church, etc., seem to be painted in “good,” yet have perpetuated some horrible things upon people, (if one is being honest,) so to argue that “only the devil smiles while stabbing you in the back,” is essentially not the whole truth. There have been Christian Institutions that do the same. Not all Christian Institutions, mind you, but some, thus reinforcing my original comment all the same.

  • [1] October 17, 2014 at 10:36am

    Monk, I’m not trying to argue just to argue, but from what I’ve read about LaVey’s teachings… I honestly can’t argue against them. If you look at the actions of people, then you see his teachings fit. What do you see, other than the whole “Satanism” thing, that could be wrong with the belief? I need specifics. No, I’m not trolling. I need to know.

    @The Jewish Avenger,

    Not all Satanists are atheists. Based upon my (again, small) amounts of research, Satanists can be divided into two categories: theistic Satanists and atheistic Satanists.

    @Mikeil305

    Yes, I would say that atheists would have a problem with that generalization and, yes, I think theistic Satanism ridiculous.

  • [1] October 17, 2014 at 9:32am

    I understand the whole idea of “wolves in sheep’s clothing,” but you have to see that your argument can be played both ways. So, couldn’t your logic apply to Christian Institutions, as well?

    The Satanic Temple IS an atheist group. Read the FAQ on their website.

    Yes, to an extent. Part of marketing may actually involve making a controversy. It made me look up their web page and read about them, so it worked, did it not?
