I quite agree with the sentiment Jerami - now if you persuade all those drive-by preaching fools to quit strutting we can get on with a reasonable conversation at a higher level - where the metaphorical eagles can fly with your metaphorical god.
Having given your question some serious thought, which I generally reserve only for yours in the christian threads, I realise that the answer is that the overwhelming number of posts are all started by proselytising christians and one muslim - maybe this IS your answer?
Wow! Jerami! I think you have really opened my eyes! It seems many of us do this very thing not realizing what we are doing! We think we are defending our beliefs, or helping others, when in reality we are not doing anything of the sort! It really makes a person take a long look in the mirror and think long and hard about what they are doing and why!!!!
I agree! I've heard enough about starving children to realize it's not the "starving children" that bothers them! I know we have all answered this question numerous times! Yet the question is still brought forth! It's like a broken record, skipping to the same old tune!!!
That is because the posts are the same old record skipping to the same old broken tune - and no answers have ever been given - every one of the ridiculous claims that are made over and over have been refuted and none of the god botherers have yet to provide one sensible answer except a quote from one of the many versions of your dicredited novel.

That is why we really care about people and really do something about it - mouthing and babbling does nothing except keep you in a trance praying and moaning for the end.
I agree! I've seen a couple of good answers to this question and they were ignored as though they weren't there!
And as you stated a few really do need to stop and take a long look at themself! Because some do have this "Holier than thou" concept! But I think it goes both ways! There are non-believers who think they are never wrong!
The question really is how do you approach your prayer with the creator of the universe? I pray first by thanking God for what HE has done, to help to guide me to do HIS perfect will for my life. I plead the Blood of...
To co-incide with Pricessa's health care topic. I thought we could take it a little futher.I would like to propose a fasting day for all the starving children around the world. Could we agree on a date for beginning of...
The new Feed Facility (that I quite like) means I become aware of loads of really silly questions that new 'hubbers' are asking. Unfortunately I find myself replying with equally silly answers (I know its...
