  • Re: Black Jesus (Season 1)

    Let's not kid ourselves. The acting is piss poor and the script is abysmal. Most of us are simply content with having a hood ass show with decent intentions on television. Also, I'm not sure that Black Jesus' gems of knowledge aren't actually the delusional ramblings of a lunatic or con artist. I get a feeling that this series will end with him being exposed as a fake but everyone, including Vic, will appreciate the example Black Jesus was trying to set and they will forgive him.

    I don't see this going past one season but I'll watch just to see it to the end.

    there are millions of Christians some willing to die for their faith so stop lying Christianity is still taken seriously by many many people. @kingblaze84

    Christians that are willing to die for their faith aren't really Christians. I guess Jesus sacrifice ain't enough for y'all niggas huh?

    just stop it you are talking just to be talking now

    Luke 9:24; For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it.

    Matthew 10:38; And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.

    his death was not so that we don't physically die it was so that we don't meet real death.

    Then hurry up and sign up for a Christian suicide bomber squad.

    The question was posed as what kind of successful lives do atheists have, not what individual atheists say or do after it is established that they are atheistic and successful.

    That's not the question that was posed. Bill gates came into the discussion as a faulty example of person whose atheism motivated him to get rich that of course made no fucking sense because atheism did not motivate bill into starting and running his business.

    atheism as am ideology by itself does not push humanity to do anything except annoy those of us who choose to believe.

    Jehovah's Witnesses are far more annoying then any atheist I've ever met....
    Shit... Crusades, slavery, and genocide are annoying as fuck when you just want to be left alone.

    None of that shit has anything to do with the point that was made, but yes religion was a motivating factor for some of the people involved in those things.

    but my overall point is that religion actually does something it motivates for good or for bad while atheism alone does nothing

    You say that because you don't know what the underlying principle of atheism is: The idea that we are a self-evident species who lives, dies, succeeds, and fails by our own hands, not that of an extraterrestrial entity. Atheism rejects the idea of a supreme orchestration of reality

    It's the opposite of theism, which inherently attributes every person, place, thing, action, event, and thought in the universe to a deity or deities.

    Atheism really isn't a hard concept to grasp.

  • Re: Satanism....and all the misrepresentations about it.

    There are theistic Satanists and atheistic Satanists.

    The former version identifies with various incarnations of evil associated with different religions including Christianity, Hinduism, and Egyptian mysticism. They celebrate and literally believe in Satan, Hades, Shaitan, Set, etc.

    The latter sees the figure of Satan as allegorical, not literal. They don't react as strongly towards religions because they don't actually believe in angels and demons. To them, it's all symbolic and philosophical.

    All Satanists, theists or atheists, basically encourage pure, truthful, unrestrained, righteous hedonism. Do what you want. Be free, but do not tread upon the freedom of others and accept responsibility for your actions.

    It ain't a bad school to study in. It's not Luciferianism, but it's a big step in the right direction.
