I have another one to share. The church transmogrified him into a vampire.

There are about 8, million people throughout this earth who have benefited a lot from following the right one, and will benefit immeasurably in the future.

Also, what about the damage atheism does when take to too much of an extreme?

There are some one here who have been badly damaged by tier lack of belief bad faith, which has made them very bitter indeed.

I am sure Satan is very pleased with your work.

There is no "right" one. They are each outdated, but somewhat useful systems of personal development, coping mechanisms, and excuses for community get-togethers. From my trips into various religious ceremonies, the more orthodox it is the less useful it is for humanity. If it keeps you from using drugs or whatever anti-social thing you do, keep at it.

There are about 8, million people throughout this earth who have benefited a lot from following the right one, and will benefit immeasurably in the future.

1. Did you ever take a math class?
2. Why did you put a comma after 8?
3. Find me some cross-sectional studies that show benefits of your cult compared to others, and then we'll talk, homebody.

Also, what about the damage atheism does when take to too much of an extreme?

Sometimes I don't believe in god so hard that I don't believe in god. #MindFreak

I have been badly damaged by your grammar, spelling, and incoherence. It has raped my soul.

Satan is the most pathetic character in all of fiction. All you have to do is hold a crucifix up and he freaks out. You can just chill on your couch watching netflix, hold the cross up, and you're good. You don't have to throw it at him or anything. Just hold it. Or get some holy water and he dissolves into the fires of hell for another 1000 years. You're good, homie. Just chill.

Oh there most definitely is a right one, and it is far from outdated.

1: Well I took Maths in school but didn't even attempt to get any qualifications.
2: Good question I was originally going to do it numerically and changed my mind in mod type, the comma got left in.
3: The bible is what tells us that. Whilst I am not currently a member, they are the only ones I have found after years of searching, on and off, that agree 100% with what the bible teaches without having to twist or re-interpret anything.

The point being that the bible has proven accurate and reliable, at least in everything which has so far been proved, and it is the only holy book which does. It is also the only book I have ever studied which is completely capable of interpreting itself, with sufficient study anyway.

But is Atheism realistic in face of the mounting evidence for an intelligent designer? The deeper microbiology delves into the structures of life, the more design becomes necessary to explain it.

There are some one here who have been badly damaged by tier lack of belief bad faith, which has made them very bitter indeed.

I have been badly damaged by your grammar, spelling, and incoherence. It has raped my soul.

My spelling isn't that bad, though my typing may well be, however it is English spelling not American, my grammar likewise, and I did go to a Grammar School, lol, for what that was worth.

I am sure Satan is very pleased with your work.

No Satan is far from pathetic, though he certainly is happy for people to believe the fiction farces about him. The more pathetic he appears to people the easier he can influence their minds, like he is, whether or not you realise it, influencing yours.

Never underestimate the power of Satan, he is far more powerful than any human, fortunately for us, God is much more powerful still.

Why would I want to watch Netflix? as this world deteriorates so does the entertainment world. PT Barnum once said "No-one ever went broke under-estimating the public" and he is right. That is why TV is getting ever lower standard so that there is an ever reducing amount I can enjoy watching. I am almost completely restricted to documentaries and science programs now.

I have watched so called entertainment deteriorate over the decades, with a great deal of sadness, and with it morality has deteriorated also.

The world of entertainment is reverting more and more to the "Roman Circus", the primitive and barbaric.

Allow me to post my own god damn story: I was a faithful servant for 16 god damn years and god still punked me. My life is nothing, I am nothing, god is the ultimate rapist. You know who killed my faith? God and Christians, especially the conservatives. I hate them so much.

The "for 16 years" implied it, no reason to be insulting.

By the way, out of curiosity, how did God punk you?
What caused you to not only hate these people, but be so angry enough that you feel it necessary to direct that anger at those who had naught to do with it?

hey venting you anger like that makes you know better than them
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

MCB: "There are about 8, million people throughout this earth who have benefited a lot from following the right one, and will benefit immeasurably in the future."

I hope these current eight million benefit more now than the have in the past. In the past, they spent more time apologizing for stupidity then in preaching the gospel.

I thought this forum was for serious discussion on religious matters/sarcasm. :)
