  • Re: Did the book of Exodus really happen?

    I remember saying earlier in this thread that I realized the Bible was bullshit at the age of 13 and interestingly, I've been reading up a little bit on Albert Einstein and here is what he said about the Bible and his epiphany at age 12....he mentions how his NON RELIGIOUS BELIEFS MOTIVATED him to discover more and eventually become the most celebrated scientist of the 20th century

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein's_religious_views (source: Einstein, Albert (1979). Autobiographical Notes. Chicago: Open Court Publishing Company, pp. 3-5.)


    In his Autobiographical Notes, Einstein wrote that he had gradually lost his faith early in childhood:


    . . . I came—though the child of entirely irreligious (Jewish) parents—to a deep religiousness, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of twelve. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. The consequence was a positively fanatic orgy of freethinking coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies; it was a crushing impression. Mistrust of every kind of authority grew out of this experience, a skeptical attitude toward the convictions that were alive in any specific social environment—an attitude that has never again left me, even though, later on, it has been tempered by a better insight into the causal connections. It is quite clear to me that the religious paradise of youth, which was thus lost, was a first attempt to free myself from the chains of the 'merely personal,' from an existence dominated by wishes, hopes, and primitive feelings. Out yonder there was this huge world, which exists independently of us human beings and which stands before us like a great, eternal riddle, at least partially accessible to our inspection and thinking. The contemplation of this world beckoned as a liberation, and I soon noticed that many a man whom I had learned to esteem and to admire had found inner freedom and security in its pursuit. The mental grasp of this extra-personal world within the frame of our capabilities presented itself to my mind, half consciously, half unconsciously, as a supreme goal[/i]. Similarly motivated men of the present and of the past, as well as the insights they had achieved, were the friends who could not be lost. The road to this paradise was not as comfortable and alluring as the road to the religious paradise; but it has shown itself reliable, and I have never regretted having chosen it.[3]

    what some people fail to realize is that there is no way of avoiding a fight with people like isis. there is no way around it because there conquest and seeking for power is religiously driven. You can't fight a religious war with secularism we have to kill these people or else 10 years from now when they are more deeply entrenched it will even more blood to remove them

    America has tried your strategy for the past 12 years LOL, the results so far are less then impressive. America's foreign policy is the main reason so many people hate Americans around the world. Many nations around the world don't have to deal with the bullshit America has to deal with, hmm I wonder why

    how many times am i going to have to tell you that what america has been doing for the past 12 years is setting up democracies i don't advocate that i believe that america should directly rule iraq with no pretense.

    You want to know why other nations don't have the headaches we do?? it's because they cannot do what we do, they don't have the power militarily or economically to safeguard the global capitalistic democracy that currently rules most of this world. Europe CURRENTLY has no balls for a fight and many of there more prominent nations are crawling with radical muslims. china has no interest nor do i see how it would be in there interest to help with this problem.

    You always go on about people in the middle east hating america who gives a fuck they are going to hate no matter what because the hate is justified by the religion.

    America ruling Iraq without pretense means setting up an empire right in the heart of the Middle East. That's a jihadist's wet dream coming to life. No way would that be a good thing, that means more than 400K thousand troops would be needed, Baghdad alone is a huge city in the tens of millions.

    People from the Middle East would hate us less if our foreign policy was less on imperialism and stealing resources, along with propping up an apartheid govt like Israel that is universally hated in the Middle East by the people.

    BY THE WAY, if you are serious about an all out war with America doing this mostly alone against ISIS, be aware Saudi Arabia and Qatar princes are directly funding ISIS, do you wanna go to war against Saudi Arabia, home of the mecca too? You have to if you are SERIOUS about taking on ISIS, you wanna take that route head on? China, Iran and Russia have decent militaries, they can take on ISIS if they are so big and bad a threat. But the world knows war loving Americans like yourself are always willing to put themselves up, first in line. And meanwhile, America's enemies worldwide will increase again. Be honest and say you want hundreds of thousands of troops in Syria and Iraq AND Saudi Arabia. This would be the ONLY way to take on ISIS.

    Most of what the Bible says is real, in a poetic and hermetic way.

    Therefore, the people (s) and events are real. You just have to adjust your interpretation to understand their reality.

    GTFOH

    That's like saying X Men are real minus the mutants and other fictional events. Either the shit happened or it didn't.

    lmao, they ain't hearing you though

    Reading the bible all in disbelief, than convincing themselves that not everything should be taken literal or simply forgetting about it and carry on.

    just give it up guys, you know you read some things in the bible that you in your heart know arent true...

    stop lying to yourselves.

    It's funny how often Christians lie to themselves and alter reality every day to retain faith in the Bible. I remember being a Christian and having to repeat lies into my head every single day to convince myself Christianity was the way and the truth. It's amazing how so many grown people are able to do this

    I know some people just need something to believe in but why alter reality in the process?? I'd rather be real about life and just admit some things we don't know the answers too. The answers Christians give usually are more disturbing then the questions people have for them.
  • Re: Back in Iraq: Obama Orders Airstrikes

    If it is true that there are thousands of people on that mountain facing either slaughter or starvation, I don't see how anyone can not support this.

    you cant? how about all the Americans that have been killed in these wars already? enough of the bullshit, these people are gonna kill eachother regardless of us being there or not. Let it happen, cant fix the world when your own home aint right.

    Amen
