    Jesus wrote something on that wall ( when they wanted to stone that prostitute.

    I think Jesus read the stars and obviously read body language,but you are may be meaning the written word?

    sorry just adding my 2cents worth.

    Why do we all fight so much when it comes to religion. I admire Mark, Misha is very witty (I like him) ... Brenda is new to hubpages (very sweet young lady) ...the rest too are all nice people.Why don't we stop talking about religion and close this front for once and for all.Let's get to know each other on some new level that would not bring out the worst in us. Let's stop this madness! This is my first and my last plea.

          beause of my upbringing, I think if you knew me I would be one of the people you hate the most, judging from the comments you have made.... None of us can help the religion we were born in to can we?

                    I can always spot the Brits here - they are the ones swimming when the water is freezing. Everyone else is sensibly waiting for June.  big_smile

                Of course there is. If you decide it is wrong - then you should leave. I decided the religion I was indoctrinated into is a lie - so I left.

                This is called "thinking for yourself," wink

            Gee, Brenda why would I hate you? I am a happy person. Who believes everyone has a right to live by 'what they think is right' , be it extremists, liberals or atheists, as long as they donot impose it on others. I'd never hate someone because of religion.

                fear him. I believe in him, I Love him, that is why I belong to neither group! I believe that each person has his/he own God. And I shall stop at that.

                    No panic - that happens a lot! We all make mistakes with the quoting thingy.

                    PS - Don't be afraid of Mark. He just gets offended by people saying that he is going to burn in Hell for all eternity, which is a pretty foul thing to say to another person.

                    He hates people who profess to be filled with some strange definition of God's love that involves dropping military hardware on people, or exploding a bomb on a bus filled with school kids.

                    A little tip - if things get a little heavy on here, direct the conversation towards alcohol. He bites every time wink

                Lucky you - Greek wine is nice, but not in the same league as the French.

                Mind you, it cost us nothing, so who am I to complain?

                  Worst wine ever - English wine. Followed a close second by Maltese. big_smile

                    Bulgarian wine is pretty dire - the only thing worse is Bulgarian Raki. I use it to clean the rust off my garden tools.

    So picture the scene
        10 or so of us all sat in temple bar Dublin drinking guiness and Mark it's your round..

    thanks for that, I get myself into deep water sometimes.....
    Yes the water is freezing in England.... colder here, but in the next town rain or shine a crowd of ladies swim every morning.

    They look about 10 years younger than they really, so it must be doing them good are but you would not get me in the water, not only because it is freezing it is so poluted......

    Non religious people should be stoned for the blasphemy
    or hugged for there unsureness
    it takes balls to question what your parents tell you to believe
    it takes whats the word intelligence
    all true believers in anything question it religiously

    I don't pretend I'm too nice. I'm nice, people know this. But not too much. I mean, I'm nice enough. I'm the kind of guy that could put a bullet thru a guy's head and say the Lord's prayer right afterwards. Condemn it all you like.

        fierycjposted 15 years agoin reply to this

        I'm I for or against capital punishment? Hmmm, I guess that depends. Everybody deserves a second chance, right? I know if I was a mass-murdering maniac I would want a second chance, or a third, and fourth and so on, being a mass-murderer and all. I realize a lot of people agree and disagree an this,but the fact,I believe still prevails above the other. Some people just have to be killed, if you may say, for the greater good, of mankind even. I hate saying corny stuff like, for the greater good. Lol.

      Why feel the need to say the Lords prayer. Youve shot a guy cest le vie. Youre off tho Hell hahah, but only if you are a Christian, an Athiest can do the same, and eat an Ice cream afterwards, No Worries. Reciting the Lords Prayer would be the last thing on his mind.

    I sometimes hope and wish I was born in the war era. Not like now, though, when we have sub-machine guns and all. Its all sissy-like if you ask me. Anybody can shoot, anybody can kill, of course under the right circumstances. Or wrong circumstances. But using swords, and arrows, and stuff like back in the day, when men of valour walked the earth. That would have been the life for me, really. I know it sounds crazy. I realize this, but its the truth.

    I am an athiest and i am on this forum because religion has a set of views that differ from my own and there for in order to make my voice heard on the issues that all people deal with i need to attend a forum that is about religion if there weren't anything in here about abortion gays or evolution in the forum i wouldn't really have a need to be on here but since there are subjects that interest me and i am passionate about then i am here and im going to continue express my views
