    “Other Gods”?

    Of course, the bronze age tribes also believed the earth was flat and supported by columns which made the earth “tremble” from time to time.

    Clearly, the faithful have not read their bible; otherwise they would not be, um, faithful.

  2. 2

    Dorky Dorkman spews:

    So, there is not just one God. God said so and so did Tom Brokaw.

    You can’t get more reliable than that!

  3. 3

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @1 Obviously this is the Big God judging the little gods, aka martinets, aka Republicans.

  4. 4

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Personally, I think it’s a good idea to gather all the Republicans together in one place, then deal with them en masse. It’s more efficient.

  5. 6

    Deathfrogg spews:

    So really this means that religion is just a beauty contest between imaginary friends? Most people give that shit up by the time they’re 8 years old.

    Of course, most religionists don’t understand the distinction between imaginary friends and real ones. Thats why they’ll beat their kids senseless for having an imaginary friend or throw them out of the house at 12 years old because they got tired of the minister fucking them up the ass every Sunday and decided that church was an unpleasant place. I know a few people that went through exactly that.

    Thats why they’ll fawn over and gibber about that wonderful Minister who drives a $100,000 Mercedes Benz and lives in a 20,000 square foot house then turn around and ostracize anyone who questions why they need to plunk a $100 bill in the collection plate at every service.

    Religion: The biggest, most successful and longest running scam in all of human history.

  6. 8

    spews:

    So, you are all surprised?

    If I am what am, does that mean there are no other ams?

    Must Shaddai, Ashera, Hermes, Vishnu, and Hamatsa be less than real because I am?

    For that matter,how in heaven do you folks imagine daily life in heaven .. with all those saints, Jesus, Mary, ex Popes, and the prophets? Do you think Heaven is a democracy?

    Can you imagine the chaos when the prophets ALL arrived in one place?

    Vote Me! you have no other choice!

    Are you the conductor? That seems a role that you could fulfill.

    Dorky Dorkman spews:

    Howard Stern and I will spend eternity as voyeurs on the isle of Lesbos.

    The Pearly Gates can take many forms.

  9. 11

    Liberal Scientist is a a dirty fucking hippie spews:

    Must Shaddai, Ashera, Hermes, Vishnu, and Hamatsa be less than real because I am?

    You all seem to have one thing in common – created by man, for man.
    I would imagine that others’ ‘Holy Book’ contains similar language – “Our GOD is the BEST GOD”

    Sort of like Borat singing about Kazakhstani potassium:

    Kazakhstan greatest country in the world.
    All other countries are run by little girls.
    Kazakhstan number one exporter of potassium.
    Other countries have inferior potassium.

    “Our God is greatest God,
    All other gods are little girls…”

    And so it goes….

    AWWWW…somebody gets their fee-fees hurt when we discuss their mythology. Perhaps Mr. Scripty will show up and ‘prove’ for us the existence of god…he sort of skeedaddled that other thread…

    errrmmm, wrong again mr bubble studying lab tech. My feelings arent hurt on this subject, or any other for that matter, but a bunch of irrelevant dweebs.

    I have never said I was or was not Christian anyway, and if I was, you and your socialist losers certainly wouldnt be capable of effecting what I thought.

    keep on complaining and being jealous of others, its all you guys got.

    Well this is terrifying – in Louisiana (of course) they’re eviscerating the public school budgets to transfer the money to pay for vouchers that the yahoos will use to pay for Christianist schools. Schools that use textbooks from Bob Jones University Press, among other citadels of knowledge.
    Among the stuff being taught to those poor children down there, using public money:

    - Only ten percent of Africans can read or write, because Christian mission schools have been shut down by communists.

    – “the [Ku Klux] Klan in some areas of the country tried to be a means of reform, fighting the decline in morality and using the symbol of the cross… In some communities it achieved a certain respectability as it worked with politicians.”

    – “God used the ‘Trail of Tears’ to bring many Indians to Christ.”

    – It “cannot be shown scientifically that that man-made pollutants will one day drastically reduce the depth of the atmosphere’s ozone layer.”

    – “God has provided certain ‘checks and balances’ in creation to prevent many of the global upsets that have been predicted by environmentalists.”

    – the Great Depression was exaggerated by propagandists, including John Steinbeck, to advance a socialist agenda.

    – “Unions have always been plagued by socialists and anarchists who use laborers to destroy the free-enterprise system that hardworking Americans have created.”

    – Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential win was due to an imaginary economic crisis created by the media.

    – “The greatest struggle of all time, the Battle of Armageddon, will occur in the Middle East when Christ returns to set up his kingdom on earth.”

    God, of course, want them to do this, and I’m sure it’s all supported by SCRIPTURE. Pu-raise JEEEESUSS!

    the only hate, and jealousy for that matter, I see come mainly from the left.

    only hate, and jealousy for that matter, I see come mainly from the left.

    Here’s just a sampling of quotes from your side’s main blimp, Rush:

    1. “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”

    2. “Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing.”

    3. “Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”

    4. “The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.”

    5. “They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?”

    6. [To an African American female caller]: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.”

    7. ”I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn’t deserve.”

    8. Limbaugh’s many attacks on Obama.

    Limbaugh has called Obama a ‘halfrican American’ has said that Obama was not Black but Arab because Kenya is an Arab region, even though Arabs are less than one percent of Kenya. Since mainstream America has become more accepting of African-Americans, Limbaugh has decided to play against its new racial fears, Arabs and Muslims. Despite the fact Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law school, Limbaugh has called him an ‘affirmative action candidate.’ Limbaugh even has repeatedly played a song on his radio show ‘Barack the Magic Negro’ using an antiquated Jim Crow era term for Black a man who many Americans are supporting for president. Way to go Rush.

    9. “We need segregated buses… This is Obama’s America.”

    10. “Obama’s entire economic program is reparations.”

    Fear and hate, fear and hate, from the mouthpiece and leader of the Republican party.

    OH EXCELLENT!! I just came across ‘evilbible.com’ which seems to be an invaluable resource for understanding the moral underpinnings of our resident Bible-thumpers like the literalist YECer puddles.

    Here’s a good one:

    3) More Murder Rape and Pillage (Deuteronomy 20:10-14)

    As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.

    What kind of God approves of murder, rape, and slavery?

  19. 23

    spews:

    Lib Sci ..

    You ask “What kind of God approves of murder, rape, and slavery?”

    Seems to me that your view of Me is sadly wrong. I do not approve of murder, rape, slavery or even poverty. Those are your ideas.

    Even in the text you site, I do not authorize these things. Someone writing rules of engagement does this. Am I also to blame for the US Military Code of Justice?

    It seems to me that humans need to “man up,” take responsibility for your own actions rather than always blaming Me!

    (Deuteronomy 20:10-14)

    As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.

    We tell the truth, and you think it’s hate. I reckon that’s what Harry Truman was getting at.

    Note to dwarf-giant idiot: boats are in fact holes in the water that consume vast amounts of time and money and you are a fool.

    LMFAO @ “vast amounts” – ya, only if you are an idiot who doesnt know what they are doing…sounds like you, eh?

    run along and go be jealous now…

    Monday is tomorrow and got to get back to work so I can make money and pay my “fair share of taxes…..and YLBigots fair share of taxes….and rujax’s fair share of taxes…and probably yours too…

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @24 “Monday is tomorrow and got to get back to work …”

    I’m so sorry. I’ll say a prayer for you. Maybe someday you’ll grow up to be a capitalist like me. Then Mondays will be like every other day of the week, you can sleep in, won’t have to commute, etc. We capitalists don’t have to work. We get paid for doing nothing.

    I couldn’t agree more. Indeed, they shouldn’t refer to you to back up all their crazy-ass bigotry and violence and fear-based hate. In fact, it will be a wonderful day when the last human that needs you dies off, and we enter a phase in our evolution without need for mythologized sky-daddies.

    Alas, I cut it off a number of years ago…male pattern baldness was pushing the hairline back, and I didn’t want to end up with a skullet.

    Politically Incorrect - who has been banned over at soundpolitics.com spews:

    As I said last week, we invented religion because we seem to be hard wired to do so. You can’t take it too seriously, or it’ll drive you crazy.

  27. 36

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @33 Given that all of history’s kings derived their legitimacy from Divine Authority, without religion there would have been no government for several thousand years.

    Or we’d have developed democracy sooner, rather that having a stable, but feudal, system for all those years.

    Dorky Dorkman spews:

    re 13: “HAte is a thing specialized by the left…”

    Remember, O’ questioner of Bartertown Bossman, that when you point your finger at someone else, three of your fingers point back at you and your thumb points kind of mid way — like at the horizon — so it doeasn’t count.

  30. 39

    Context spews:

    Why not present the entire Psalm rather than 1 verse? The Atheists at HA have some very, very bad habits about taking things out of context and understanding that the Old Testament is both Historical and God’s Law….and the New Testament is about God’s Grace. It needs to be taken in it’s entirety rather than cherry-picking. BUT, God-hating Atheists cannot or will not understand that, will they.

    So, for the good of the order..CONTEXT-

    Psalm 82

    A psalm of Asaph.

    1 God presides in the great assembly;
    he renders judgment(A) among the “gods”:(B)
    2 “How long will you[a] defend the unjust
    and show partiality(C) to the wicked?[b](D)
    3 Defend the weak and the fatherless;(E)
    uphold the cause of the poor(F) and the oppressed.
    4 Rescue the weak and the needy;
    deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
    5 “The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.(G)
    They walk about in darkness;(H)
    all the foundations(I) of the earth are shaken.
    6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”;(J)
    you are all sons of the Most High.’
    7 But you will die(K) like mere mortals;
    you will fall like every other ruler.”
    8 Rise up,(L) O God, judge(M) the earth,
    for all the nations are your inheritance.
