All abortion is murder and should be treated under law the same as any other murder.

That's the best description of this thread 😄

Almost all religion is ABOUT control.  The advantage is power.  Control is always about power.  Those who are in the upper hierarchy and want it - get it.  

 

 

The other option is Money.

 

I would TOTALLY have a LOT more respect for a church that meets in a public park, with their only equipment maybe being a PA system.

And rather than passing around a collection plate or asking for support for things, they end with telling the followers to "go help 2 people with something; anything. Money, lifting, somewhere to sleep, anything".

Even if they keep their building; voluntarily NOT being tax-free, or taking less pay (my mates dad was a pastor, he didn't live poorly) would also impress.....

 

Besides the 'leader' (Pastor, Rabbi, whomever) having a little sway in that he's the mouthpiece, THAT sort of establishment would have me truly believing that the church existed 'for the people' not 'for the church'.

 

For example, my friend was homeless at 15. She's passed away now (never let anyone know she was so far gone, but thats another story.)

She lived on church grounds. She worked 4 jobs to be able to afford rent.

And even knowing how hard by she was, the church STILL charged her rent.

Turns out she had been living on lettuce and jello for months..... She never let people close enough to know....

Anyway, they may capitalize less (rent was subsidized), but they certainly don't give.

Money is power too.  And control. 😉

Not always.

Some of the most powerful nations have the highest debt.

Debt isn't necessarily a lack of money. 
Those powerful nations with high debts still have plenty of money to throw around.

LOL

 

Debt is not a measure of wealth necessarily. 
 

The most powerful nations have huge GDP earning and spending power.  The amounts of money they deal with are staggering. Debt is hardly a factor.

 

And if you believe that the haves don’t control the have nots, you aren’t paying attention.

Money isnt the only power but it is one means to get power. 

It’s a *form* of power.
 

And having it gives power over others.

The money we have now is currency, generated from debt (created by central banks).

( lol, I wish Cybes had used a word other than " dick " )

 

I could have used "cunt" instead.  In my book, that is both more offensive and perhaps more accurate.

and I agree, definitely the more accurate to describe an evil person. I always thought being a dick was someone prone to goofing around to the point of annoyance. It's all pretty subjective

My question was about "the Bible", not religion. There is a difference. I think reading/knowing the Bible begets freedom.

But who's bible?

 

I read the Satanic Bible the other day, because it was in my mates glovebox in a 2nd hand car, and I was curious.

Good read! I'd suggest it, if you've never read the other side.

 

You can't make an informed decision without knowing both sides.

NZT48, we have less than a month left on Atomic as we knew it. People are coming back to remember the good times, connect with each other, support each other, to strengthen the community that we created here over so many years. And what are the religious nutbags doing? Attempting to resuscitate a nonsensical rant that showcases all the reasons why religion is at best risible and at worst the finest example of true evil in the world. Well done. It's great to know that over the years you have not grown or learnt in any way, you still fail at basic logic, and have a bronze age comprehension of empathy and ethics. 

 

(Unless, as I often suspect, you're a Poe. In which case, well played! You get my endless admiration for a years-long dedication to the kind of stupidity that makes my head hurt but please, please, out yourself before the forums end! You deserve some recognition for a brilliantly executed troll!)

Just to be fair to said religious nutbag, this thread was started before the end of times was announced. 🙂

 

Not denying ANYTHING you have said, but, you know, being fair... 🙂

Oh my goodness ..... where to start !  
 

Firstly, relative to the original post, I don’t see why anyone should go to the effort of changing your opinion.  Unless you’re in the position of having to make a choice on medical treatment to your own body, the decision is not yours and your opinion doesn’t matter.  Period.

 

Secondly, and in my personal opinion, the Bible seems to have factual basis, but has become victim to Chinese Whispers over the centuries .... either intentionally or accidentally.  If the history was intentionally distorted, it certainly was done as a method of control, and done in the name of religion. Why else would ordinary events be magically transposed into miracles ?

They already outed themselves in a biggish thread where they shared their real name, and the fact they're DMB, a loooooooong-time conspiracy nutjob and general serial loony/pest. One who has been banned multiple times before.
