Offending the god botherers

...Everyone is made in God's image...
There you go again confusing faith with fact. A correct statement would be:

"In my faith we believe that everyone is made in God's image"*

ETA:

* Which is very narcissistic when you think about it

A mega scam eh?

Why?

What did they get out of it? The original disciples I mean. The ones who continued to spread the Gospel after Christ's ascension into heaven? Money? Fame? Glory?

Or harsh rejection and in most cases violent deaths.

Why did they do that? Why don't you answer that question.

Why did they continue?
You believe that the disciples were real, how sweet

What did Hitler's soldiers and SS get out of it by fighting on when a blind man on a galloping horse could see it had all gone legs up? Throughout history there have been hopeless causes, yet men continued to fight for them. Mostly they too got harsh rejection and violent death. That's just the way fanatics are, I suppose.
That's the thing with fundamentalists, they arent fun and are all mental.

There is a plausible explanation for why the resurrection story came about. Basically after his stint on the cross for Terrorist offences (see earlier post) the Romans cut him down and he was put in a cold tomb, now if he wasn't actually dead, just mostly dead he could have recovered ( there have been examples where people have been supposedly dead and woken up) shouted until some passing individuals opened the tomb and off he wandered...goes to see his mates who now think he has come back from the dead. Bob's your Uncle, there we have a resurrection story.
You assume they buried him I reckon they just dumped the stiff and asked for payment and when the tramp sleeping off an all weekend binge on Hebrew handbags woke up everyone claimed it was jesus
 
As a devout Atheist (but unlike a vegan don't feel the need to mention that after saying 'Hello') Douglas Adams summed it up well, just a shame the believers don't get it.
“Your God person puts an apple tree in the middle of a garden and says, do what you like, guys, oh, but don't eat the apple. Surprise surprise, they eat it and he leaps out from behind a bush shouting "Gotcha". It wouldn't have made any difference if they hadn't eaten it.'
'Why not?'
'Because if you're dealing with somebody who has the sort of mentality which likes leaving hats on the pavement with bricks under them you know perfectly well they won't give up. They'll get you in the end.”


And lets face it the Gods are pretty much all total arseholes.

Like I said, there are two types who take the Bible literally: Evangelical fundamentalists and militant atheists.
 
I'd end up with sister consumptia from father ted
All those repressed sexual urges - right dirty scutter, guaranteed.
 
The Magisterium, via the Catechism.
Well your Magisterium must have nicked it verbatim from the Jewish bible - Genesis 1:27, just like you quoted it here without having the decency to credit (what you think is) the source.

But hold on a minute! Isn't that the same bible you told us a few pages back is not to be taken literally? Do please, enlighten us.

Remember though, if you quote some other source verbatim it's only decent to credit the source (even if that source nicked it from an earlier source).

Cripes....and he wonders at the use of the word "disingenuous" in connection with his posts......

So based upon your statement above are you an Evangelical fundamentalist or a militant atheist?
He'll be whatever the priest tells him to be, like a good little obedient, weak-minded, easily-led god botherer. We'll be having none of this free-thinking around here, you godless heathen. You're due a good stoning you are, young fella me infidel.

You're a nasty man, confusing the easily-led, weak-minded god botherer like that.
 
Well, you are right about people turning to religion to make life bearable howver, one of the problematic aspects of that role of religion is that it offers an easy distraction from the challenge of dealing with the complexity and challenge of the apparent empty nihilism of life, when in fact, there is much more to life than that. Seeking more deeply into life is hampered when you're clutching on to pre-modern objectified concepts about that which is not of the realm of objects.

How do you think most people nowadays attain long term happiness?

Well it has a lot to do with one's inner resources and attitude, rather than being dependent on external circumstances.
 
It is an important question though, don't you think? Perhaps the most important. If we only get one shot at this then happiness matters and tragedy is real.
