                  smile I believe an open mind does not mean a rubbish suppository. If we believe an invisible friend is running the show, there is usually all show and no go.
                  I have had a very exciting and interesting life right up to this minute, and in the next minute I will be different.
                  I'm listening to an ABC Radio National interview at the moment that has given me a new opinion, just to make the point.

                  That's life without religion, changing and keeping up with the times.
                  The world may be going to hell in a basket, but it always has, and the difference is that we now have many good things making a difference in the world.

                  MMDA is not a drug one takes daily Einstein and I have never heard of any of these drugs being addictive have you?

                  If you haven't tried it you know nothing but the beliefs of the screaming prohibitionists who bought 13 years of mob rule to America over alcohol.

                  I bet I don't take as many drugs as you do. I drink very little and I don't even take Aspirin. lol

                  It's interesting, and indeed telling, that you feel anyone who disagrees with you views is a drug user. Go on, do your worst, if you cannot come up with logical argument, scrutinize their hubs. Perhaps in your Chrisitian way you can find an argument, that may even prove logical (although I doubt that)

                    You and your pals here, were bragging about all the drugs you've tried.  Seriously, who does that?  You and your buddies here were laughing it up as if it's a good thing.  Why are you so sensitive now?  Are you a drug user?  If you are I pray that you kick that habit.  Prayer changes things!

              Hollie, your drug habit is your business!  I'm sure ecstasy was just a start of your long laundry list of ways to get "to feel totally far out"  Perhaps that's why you think you're a bird!

                Diamondgirl27, I love your post, and though I would not want to make you feel that I was being condescending in any way, the bird is my avatar, it represents my love for nature and wildlife. At no point have a ever felt the need to think that I'm a bird.(but, if it makes you feel better then you go on believing it) However, I'm not surprised that you might think a picture represents the individual. Sorry to disappoint you, but neither am I a drug user, never have been, however, I have worked with many drug users (in a professional capacity) and just like you, they like to push their beliefs onto others. You believe, you have faith, that's good. Why do you feel that you have to instill into others what you (say) you have experienced. Another thing, I'm an atheist, you may have noticed. But I once worked with a born again christian, for two years to be exact, before he told me, and not once did he have to ram it down my throat. Why? because he was sure of his relationship with  his god. It wasn't a sales pitch. Perhaps you could practice the same? Or do you need to" feel totally far out" ?

                  "Ram it down your throat?"  I don't remember inviting you to this post.  I simply posted it in the Christianity section.  You responded to the post and I responded to you. Your BIRD was created by GOD!  So your love for nature and wildlife is a direct link to God.  You have the right to believe in whatever you want!  I was actually surprised at the responses.  I was hoping that those who had the expriences that I've had would respond but instead a bunch of nonbelievers responded.  Well, a hit dog will holla every time I guess.

          Cagil, you have a post that talks about Life's Purpose:  Good and Evil.  Make up your mind!  You can't have it both ways.  You're either a believer or you aren't.

          1. Cagsil profile image60
            Cagsilposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            Yes, I have a post about Life's Purpose. And, yes Good and Evil are only descriptions for what purposes can be. Too bad you cannot tell the difference, if you're telling me to choose one or the other.

            I cannot help your lack of knowledge or what you don't know about me. Speak about yourself and don't worry about me. I realize you can be dangerous, but the question is have you realized it?

            I know my character, who helped shape it, why it is the way it is, how I got to where I am presently and even know when I began learning it. But, I'm sure of one thing....you're in no position of any specific understanding about me. And, you should stick to learning more about yourself. lol

                @AEvans, it's cool.  We consider people like Cagsil haters of God.  He responded to my post and now he's the angry one.  He's probably angry with God.  Something isn't going right in his life.  Sometimes Christians become angry with God also.

                  This statement goes to show you don't walk the walk of your religious belief. And, even shows that you know very little about me.

                  I hate nothing and no one. So, with that said...what god would you happen to be talking about? There are millions of them in mythology, but NONE in reality.
                  Angry? If you see anger in my statement, then you're seeing in your own reflection.
                  What god?
                  How would you know? Your perception is skewed to begin with.

                    Hey Hollie, learning is against religion's basic premise. You know, it stems back to the time when early times of the bible make the claim that a god banished Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden because they ate from the tree of knowledge.....apparently the god of the bible wants to keep people stupid. lol

    You're confused!  Life here in earth will only prepare you for the eternal life.  This is only a test.  You're not a believer.  I gurantee if you were to become stricken with illness, God would be the very first word you utter.  You can call it whatever you like.  God is real!  I don't need to see him when I can feel him.  I can't wait for the day when he shows you just how real he is!

      You know nothing of the lives of those you try to sell your dogma to.

      You simply project your own fears on to others in the vain hope that it will convince you that the insanity you believe in is real.

        You're just one of many, don't flatter yourself. There are actually a number of Christians, Jews etc, that have quite an intelligent argument to put forward, they're worth listening to- thought provoking, able to show evidence to substantiate their beliefs. They don't present themselves as the big G, and they would also laugh when someone does. Sadly, you're not one of them.

            Yes we are, but I have to say that I have met many a religious person in the forums, not all I agree with nor they with me. But they do not expect me, not do I expect them, to completely accept anothers view. I can think of many hubbers that are religious, actually Eaglekiwi you included, that does not profess to be the almighty. Snooty is probably the correct word, when someone says these are my beliefs and they should be yours, that is snooty. Only five months here, but not once have I ever posted and said" These are my beliefs and they should be yours, I know, I have experienced this"

              I understand what you have expressed Hollie and I have been here over 2yrs, and never told anyone what they should believe or that they are unintelligent or delusional if they dont follow my God.

              Thats just plain immature and rude to me anyway.

              No I came here intially to talk about Spiritual topics. I sure never relised that it would be so contraversial or that Id meet so many anti-christians here either.

              I guess they are just as serious about stopping me as I am about being heard smile

              Room for us all I reckon, and I guess its my pet peeve when I see a newbie (Christian or not) being jumped all over. Not nice.

              That's what Christians do!  Go to the Atheist forum and make your point there!

                  Must be the same reason so many religious people show up in the gay forum...

                    Nah! I would never go to a gay forum and bash anyone.  I respect everyone until they show me that they don't deserve my respect.  Although we have opposing views, we still have to respect each other.  I've been called a lot of names on this post simply because of my beliefs.  I didn't lower myself.  That's how we co-exist.  We respect each other as human beings.

                    In fact, I have a sister who is openly gay.  When she told me, I told her that God loves us all no matter what and so do I!

    I met God once and he told me how disillusioned He was.  He had been experimenting with Hinduism at the time, but was seriously considering atheism as the only thing that made any sense.

    Messengers from God

    They could be judged truthful from one set of criteria; one such messenger prophet is Mirza Ghulam Ahmad- the promised messiah.

        Why would Diamondgirl delete?

          Cagsilposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          She was upset by the reception she was given? I don't know. But, I do know that there was no rhyme or reason for staff to delete it. Aside from that, staff doesn't delete OPs, but they do close threads to reply when there's too much anger displayed in the thread or too many people are filing complaints. smile

          Wasn't suggesting she had no right to delete (Where did you read that) Was just curious as to why. I have the right to be curious don't I?
