I got kicked out of vacation bible school for asking about the garden of eden and original sin. I said that if Jesus died on the cross to wipe out our sins, why were women still punished for the original sin, and babies born into sin? I also wanted to know how if God knew everything, he didn't know that Adam and Eve would eat the apple and acted suprised when they admitted it. I was 12 years old when I realized I was being lied to and misled.

Christianity is inherently wacky, so it's not surprising when Christians say wacky things.

I mean, it's a cult based on Jewish beliefs, but they think the Jews...the only source of information regarding the deity they worship...are all wrong. Think about that.

They (if they speak English) call their deity "God," which is somewhat akin to calling your dog "Dog" and getting mad when other people with other dogs don't recognise the primacy of Dog. Hello, your Hebrew god has a name. It's not "God." That's just capitalising a Germanic word (like Dog).

After rejecting the understandings of the deity held by those they nicked the concept of said deity from, they then re-imagined said deity as an super-god, granting him all kinds of special position and powers that are wholly inconsistent with the earlier lore of said god. It's like if a bunch of people adopted Shango and transformed him into the ultimate deity, called him Bob, and told people of African descent that they never really got Shango, because he's Bob, and reasons.

By nature, Christians are psychotically arrogant. It's the entire basis of their religion.

Fire and brimstone lake.


The problem with a metal boat lined with Styrofoam is the metal will eventually reach the temperature of the fire and brimstone lake which will cause the Styrofoam to catch fire.
What you should use in replace of the Styrofoam is refractory ceramic fiber which can withstand up to 1400 deg. C.

or shuttle tiles. though they do tend to fall off.


I do think we need to get NASA and such involved.  Since most scientists are going to hell (I'm looking at you, Bill Nye and NGT), they should have a vested interested in building hell-proof accessories.

Maybe they'll get right on that after they're done with all this big bang and origin of the universe stuff...

UncomfortableSilence: Magorn: UncomfortableSilence: Magorn:

Recognizing that we are arguing over the truths hidden in a creation story of a 6000 year old nomadic culture, I have always interpreted the Adam and Eve story thusly:  it is a metaphor for the moments humans gained sentience and self-awareness.   The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil gives it away to me.  Can you ascribe "morality" to the actions of an animal except as an anthropomorphic delusion?  When a cat toys with its prey before killing it, is it "evil" or merely doing what cats are programmed to do?  Can you honestly say that any animal's actions whether it is your dog peeing on a rug or even that chimp who ate a woman;s face off, had a MORAL dimension?  That is, was good o ...

If it was necessary, then why is it a sin.  We were created, a tree with the knowledge of morality was placed in the garden, and we were forbidden to know that.  Why tempt us? Why give us free will if you know that what will happen will be the eating of fruit from said tree? Why punish them and all who descended from them for gaining that knowledge, if you claimed it to be necessary?

Depends how you define sin and punishment.   You could say it was "original sin" merely because it gave us the CAPACITY to sin, which is to say chose to do evil and then the "punishment" then is not so much the wrath of god but the burden of that responsibility , that once we start on the path to taking our moral judgments for ourselves there is no going back, and it is a heavy burden, and one that has caused great pain and suffering for us as a race, but also all the works of mankind, all out art our science etc.   TO me its the metaphor for humans taking the first steps on the long road to becoming the inheritors of Creation, sentient being with near godlike abilities to understand and manipulate creation.

Reasonable argument.


I've always seen the parable/story as being analogous to "Ignorance is bliss". Considering that the concept of "Sin" as we think of it in biblical terms is more properly considered to be a "mistake" rather than a mortal ZOMG DAMN YOU TO HELL that the medieval church wanted us to believe it was, I think "original sin" and the children of man being forever burdened with it, was always more of a metaphorical means of basically saying "look, by choosing to be curious and to learn, your lives are no longer ones of simple happiness and fulfillment without burden. Instead, you now have to live with being self-aware and therefore having to live with all of the crap that comes with understanding the miseries of life beyond simple animal life."

And with that regard, it is an "original sin" in that our ancestors, by choice or by evolution, gained the ability to reason and to have more extreme experiences with life than just the basics, and therefore burdened the species to understand the misery of heartache, the frustration of failure, and so on.

Since life is full of pain, failure, and disappointment, I can see how it's a fair allegory for the state of our existence, and DAMN THOSE MONKEYS FOR CHOOSING TO LISTEN TO THE MONOLITH!

It's incredibly sad, but that is how it is... on the internet and IRL.

I can assure you those people are not filled with God's love. If they were to pass Him on the street He'd say, "I don't know you...and stop trying to represent me because you're making a huge mess."

gshepnyc: Religion deserves to be mocked and I'm glad we live in a time period when religions' ability to set themselves in a position immune to mockery is at an end.


Depending on where you live and which religion you're mocking, that is.

The lake of fire is only the half of it.  You are force by all sorts of demon to do acts of perversion. Think about clouds and harps or acts of perversion; no brainer

After reading some of these posts, I don't know whose stereotypes are worse, the Atheists or the Christians?

When your god creates an entire planet with his own powers. Then drowns all his creations in a horrible flood. Your god is a four year old with a sadistic streak.

Egoy3k: NateAsbestos: Secret Agent X23: I dunno, Ken...that wording sounds awfully polytheistic to me.

Yeah, what's this "a" God nonsense?

But then again, doesn't the first commandment tacitly admit the existence of other gods?

Yes, either that or it acknowledges that gods are created by humans.  Putting it into context with the story of the golden calf it seems pretty obvious that those guys were pretty ready to invent themselves a god.


The thing I find odd about that commandment is that the "no other god's  before me" seems to imply that other gods are just fine, so long as Yahweh is at the top of the pantheon. I have heard that there is evidence that Judaism started out as polytheistic, so maybe this is a holdover from that period and represents a transition to eventual monotheism as future generations interpreted that commandment more strictly.

Or maybe the context is more obvious in the original Hebrew and it really does mean, "no other gods, period".

FlashHarry: maher is supposed to be an asshole; that's his schtick.


agreed.

Still would like to take him, Andy Dick and a crazed badger tie them up in a sack and throw them in a river.

Not the most human way to put a crazed animal out how its misery.
