Here you go optimist

Not sure my motivation...my instinctive need to stick up for the underdog...my secret desire to be one day honoured rightfully with the role of Forum moderator (expecting a call any day)...

But anyway I couldn't help but read your troubles on another thread...unfortunately I found myself siding with everyone's posts...other than your own...except for the part where you were told you can't post here!

So I put my low IQ mind to coming up with a solution that suits all...and here it is...a safe place if you like

You can post anything you like about your beliefs...and no one has to read it unless they want! Easy peasy...

maybe you could even get Jesus, fat Buddha, Mohammed, and friends to converse in adult conversation here

Solving the world problems, one at a time...call it taking a shovel as a way of moving that mountain

All the best...brother

PS...I actually was born again once, but I grew up, and grew a brain of my own...and realised it was all a load of shit!

"And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also." (Matthew 5:40)
If a person is to rob a Christian like me, they must also give him extra belongings.
Its just the Christian thing to do, do not tell the cops either.

Roadkill, if you believe that my comprehension of your quotes/jokes etc is lacking ...well you could try explaining to us why?
Do you comprehend what you are saying .....and the meanings you imply ?

Easter Sunday…He is Risen!….
3 days after Jesus is killed and his spirit had descended into the place of departed spirits doing goodness knows what amongst the dead ….He rises again back into His body and becomes something completely new….He is the first of a new resurrected species. A new eternal being and the blueprint for our future. The son of God had to do this first. He made us ….and our sin requires death so He decided He had to die for all the sins of the world Himself and substitute Himself for us….like a judge sentencing an old friend under the law then taking off his robes and paying all his friends fines so he could be free. …That’s our God…that’s how he thinks…that’s how much He loves you……
A good read is ...John 20 ..24-31 …the story of doubting Thomas…
Have a Happy Easter with your friends and family!..and may the peace of God that passes all understanding …be with you always.

seeds , Happy Easter..........my point is what you call fact/opinions today , can still change relative to new facts being found or facts dispelling past opinions because the facts changed.....so far in 2000 years the facts around Jesus the Bible have increased , and there shitloads of academics /scholars Globally who study these facts.....which I have posted numerous times only to be met with ..." oh that's just and old book written by humans thousands of years ago ", when in fact this book , the Bible is and always will be scrutinized /tested , but the teachings remain the same!
So when you talk about Historic Information and how it's relative to today......and opinions that are formed from these ever changing facts..like Australia's history...well the Bible/Gospel teachings stand the test of Time....as does the faith and belief in God and Jesus!

Seeds...just trying to pin down ol mate Roadkill and try and get an understanding of where is coming from as I only have his comments/jokes to discuss with him......as he won't open up on what he really believes in and has faith in those beliefs....so the logical place to start is well..." what do you think then if you don't like what I am saying?"........it's forum for discussion.....but if you come on here or any forum and openly criticize someones , position/beliefs etc....well I think that you should be able to declare your opinion/facts....and off we go discussing...not just sniping and being negative.
I don't get it sometimes when someone like RK , is so sure what I say is not real , but where is the contradicting opinion/evidence as per any discussion?

Happy Easter Optimist , what a great day........The Resurrection

Early on Sunday morning,* as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb.

2 Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. 3 His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. 4 The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint.

5 Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. 7 And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.”

8 The women ran quickly from the tomb. They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. 9 And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.”

The Report of the Guard

11 As the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and told the leading priests what had happened. 12 A meeting with the elders was called, and they decided to give the soldiers a large bribe. 13 They told the soldiers, “You must say, ‘Jesus’ disciples came during the night while we were sleeping, and they stole his body.’ 14 If the governor hears about it, we’ll stand up for you so you won’t get in trouble.” 15 So the guards accepted the bribe and said what they were told to say. Their story spread widely among the Jews, and they still tell it today.

The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted!

18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,* baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Something out of nothing…it’s deep thinking and it’s tough to comprehend. Same goes for how far does the universe go?

Science gives more answers than, some thing (god) created the whole thing.

To answer the question…who created the creator? The answer is man. Goat herders came up with it then a bunch of selfish people used it to control the masses…and now it’s just screwed up…especially in America, where it is full kook.

I agree totally. God(s) is early man trying to explain creation and existence. Science is discovering more and more. I’ve read physicists theories about how possibly the Big Bang could have come from nothing. My mind can’t comprehend it. Just as God doesn’t explain it as in where did he come from before anything existed ie Creation.
I think it’s man’s folly always trying to understand instead of just being

As man became more intelligent, herding goats, agriculture etc they had more time on their hands to “love” then miss the loved people when they died.

Man created god, and man will now make fun of god because it’s that absurd

I find this weird and hard to understand as he obviously hasn't been brain washed and brought up with religion but made the choice himself.

I think it would be nice to be able to believe in something but it just doesn't add up to me, it seems to go against logic and common sense and ive gone through the religious brainwashing as a kid but still couldn't believe.

Does Peterson believe god is an actual thing / being or is religion and god a belief system used by himself and others to navigate life?

Some priests, mainly Church of England don’t believe god is an actual thing / being, but think god etc etc is a belief to help give meaning to their lives.

Isaiah’s strong points were obviously not analogies.

Haha … flopti :

‘The foolishness of man’…

-Exactly. Humans are not clay pots ;)

And Brutus’ insanity grows :

‘ pretty simple really.....believing that there was just God who has been forever and will be here forever......vs man's idea , maybe there was a just a big bang and out of nothing came the universe/humans etc.........’

Both are man’s ideas ;);)
Your perception is not reality ;)

And tell us o wise ones…
The distinction between an idea and a belief is ummmmmmm what exactly ? ;);)

‘Who created all the gases for the big bang ?’

Better off maybe considering the why and where in regard to all the bs hot air comin outta your mouths ;);)

No one here is arguing with their creator, just creators of falsehood and hearsay ;)

Oh Jelly.....and idea can be just a random thought....like , " I had an idea that you just seem to be an empty clay pot?".....do I believe it? No because I only read the insults, from a thing called a jelly Flater.......but he or she is not real ......so JF is just a random voice that appears on SN....
