Those nativity scenes and a message of Christ who died for the benefit of humanity really jam it down people's throats.

On the other hand is the inquisition and religious wars. Why must the two be confused?

There is a battle in progress. Everyone is choosing their side in the conflict. Which side have you chosen?

You speak as though there are two sides. God and God's enemies.

This would make Christians the only right and the rest wrong.

You set up and maintain the dichotomy of strife as the only reality. Peace on earth is surely not the goal.

No, they're propaganda.

Because the Inquisition was a tactic used in religious wars. Isn't that obvious?

Who better to declare your enemy than someone whose core beliefs make them unlikely to retaliate? Christians are the perfect enemy for the cowardly.

I thought your god commanded you not to lay down and be a victim. You carry a gun right? You're ready to get down if need be right? You're the guy that throws drinks in people's faces when they need an attitude adjustment right? Why is making you an enemy a cowardly thing to do... unless you're admitting to being weak.

No, vacation time, and well earned. Not backing away,you suppose you are right because of the information which you assume to be correct or incorrect. Some scientists backed the possibility of the "Mayan" disaster ,did you run and hide? I didn't.
I guess those scientists were wrong, and by your admission:

Scientist can be wrong and so can you. No offense intended. I didn't call your beliefs ignorant..................

Not one of us has ALL the answers,It is wrong for you to call me ignorant for my beliefs..........

Well now. That didn't go too well, did it?


Face it. There are plenty on this forum that are against your religion. For those that have a legitimate beef against Christianity, that is to be expected (i.e. boys molested by priests, gays that are pissed about not being accepted etc...).

There seems to be quite a few of those fellows on this forum.


For most of my life, I have been foremost an American. I gave of myself, risked everything, and served my country. Now, I am foremost a father to my children and a husband to my wife. A very close second is that I am a good friend to my friends.

I can't tell you whether there is or is not a god. I can tell you that plenty of people are absolutely that one god or another exists, and that many others are absolutely sure that no god exists.

There are a lot of different beliefs out there. Which one is right, none of us knows for sure, even though a lot of people have faith that they know what is correct in the universe.


I do not see modern day christians or jews as enemies. Sikhs, Buddhists, Hindus, and many others are also not enemies. They have their quirks, but none of them has, as a matter of dogma, meant me harm.

Muslims? That is another thing entirely. But that is a long and entirely different subject that is not on topic for this thread.

Christians are not my enemy, because I am agnostic. Atheists and muslims are the enemies of Christianity for their own reasons. Muslims are enemies of all nations and countries that are not islamic, as part of their dogma.



If you came here to make friends, you came to the wrong place. While I have no problem with your post, you came as a rabbit comes to a vipers pit when you came here to say that.

Do you understand that just because you pretend two different things are related it doesn't mean that they actually are? Mainstream science was not behind the idea of a Mayan apocalypse. There were some nutty people that believed it and I'm sure some even used the word "science" in their schizophrenic ramblings, but that doesn't mean they were "scientists". If anything, they were more like theists in that they ignored overwhelming evidence in favor of believing in the impossible.

IMO, the Mayan Apocalypse was promoted by hucksters out to make a buck. That's what people like Tim LaHay do but they have staying power because people actually believe them. The difference is that no one believes the Mayan Apocalypse is still coming but they just got the date wrong.

Are you sure? We should ask JBnTX. He was very adamant that there was going to be some sort of cataclysmic event on Dec 21st. He posted as much in the GNG thread on the topic.

I suggest you make your peace with your family and your God, for the end of the world approaches rapidly.
