Jamison20000e should I have added an additional "Great and Powerful Oz" quote like "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain"?

So how many religious people would do me in for proving them wrong; unless of course they have total faith that I did not... or they just don't want to not, not go to hell‽

Enorbet, reminds me of one time I was in jail for having a joint... a book I found there was The Wizard of Oz. Taught me how descriptive books are compared to movies, you may not notice the setting until it's described to you.

Well neither have I, unless my words are a deadly weapon.

I did call the guy who molested my friends daughter nightly and go to work on him with my voice skills. He was found parked along side of the highway headed out of town dead with a large sum of cash and a young pre-teen girl in the car who couldn't say where they were headed.

He can't say what killed him, I'm not sure myself and you'll never prove it in a court of law. I don't feel guilty though.

I was saying the same thing but using different words. None of us here is authority when it comes to Deity exist or not exist. Both sides can't proove. Burden of proof works both ways. But appears some got upset on us for having different but valid POVs so turned forum bullying ON mode. And i thought people get upset only in real life way too easy.

And that "killer" was both metaphor and literal meaning. I was simply saying there is still that part of me that was in childhood that hoped for justice and better society and planet future. Comic cartoon influence. Cause as we see by now something is not okey. Even on internet people not get along for long.

I am disappointed in enorbet's reaction which was on the same level as jamison20000e. I overestimated him.

I feet sorry for hurting his feelings due to his lack of faith and apologized for it, something I rarely do when saying something meant to be hurtful. Now I'm thinking he deserved it all along.

I won't waste any more time on either of them or this troll thread.

Also there are still people(like me) who do not (try) fool anyone and are honest most of time..but none believe. Similar story as with wolf and sheeps with shepherd..just because 3 times wolf alarm was false not mean 4th is false.

Anyone who knows quotes, knows where they come from is a joke. We attributed them to whomever we think most famous, just like Henry Ford did not invent the construction line.

If you don't understand something ask?


That's why there's not one religion or one "god" you're being fooled!

Yeah, it's an excellent read.
I do not consider, i know from my own experience that what we are told growing up about planet is not how world truly operates.

And since you like books.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Problem_of_Pain

What? We keep repeating ourselves. And i have outside LQ life aswell, no need to force me to reply to every single comment in asap. Take chill pill and follow own advices forum bullies. Read more books even of opposite teachings. I am not saying God or Devil exist or not exist but i am saying they can exist in grand scheme of reality. That is so simple..truth seeking ignores BIAS.

None prooved right or wrong. However if Hell and Heaven is real deal then why would anyone want to burn in eternal lake of fire by choice?

Arrow

Reality is what everyone on the planet agrees, like a potato( be it in one language or another) is poisonous until you cook it! Not everyone believes in your fairy tales why not?

Hard to comprehend this because you won't be going to Infinity ( least not before you die ) but Heaven would be the same as hell after trillions of years; you'd get sick of it and want to kill "god!" """I heard that joke thousands of times "god" stab-stab-stab..."""

But why Heaven and Hell? You don't believe in reincarnation or riding a horse off into the cosmos because you weren't born where or when‽

The alians that planet yous will forgive yous if you just drink the Kool-Aid. It's fun* being scared, it's fun* being evil, it's fun* killing people! $imply because you religious types lie to children but somehow can't realize you were lied to as children‽ Hey kids insist that your parents light a fire on Christmas, see what kind of magical story they tell you for the work around?

And as for the chill pill, was good: I knew you had no real answers so you don't really have to reply.

What happens when we die? I don't know. To our minds likely nothing just fade away like smashing your home videos or burning down the forest. We know what happens to our bodies don't we? If not go dig one up. I damn sure wouldn't be stupid enough to try and suck an answer from the before times...

Don't see the problem with mixing communism and socialism

Did your parents tell you what to do when you were growing up, that's communism. Even if your parents were idiots but, when not, beneficial?

Socialism, why can't we have robots do everything for us? LOL

Let's face it we're headed towards Caprica, run the guns make the funds.

Killing people or being racist or stupid is fine, when we ignore reality!!!
