I guess I am just going to have cry uncle here, you win I am all wrong and you are infallible … all I have to do is give up my life as I know it, BEG your forgiveness, bow my head to your pagan statues and believe every single word you utter as gospel … humm … NOT, I’ll pass your most un-reasonable terms of enslavement. And all of this so you can play your silly bible games. Get a life!!!
I used to be Catholic but have gone to the next evolutionary level. I am an Island … and there is no reason at all for me to do everything for myself … can you? You are trying to make me a competitor to your God when in truth I am just human and am satisfied being my own free self (societal constraints considered). How could I possibly replace something I no longer believe in with myself ... you missed the whole point
There is a saying that no man is an island and no man can do everything for himself
lulu, it was YOUR quote not mine ... READ at least your own quotes before you accuse ME of making them. No base in reality (as with most of your cynicisms). It is all in your spoiled mind and of your own making and of your choice BECAUSE I still do not care, did at one time when I thought we could actually communicate man-to man so to speak … but in all your miserable self-imposed interactions with me, it is ALWAYS your bible-to-inferior (me) and I have no options at all. You Christian Soles just amaze me with your Christianity!
Maybe I missed the whole point but it seems to me when you write "I am an Island" proves it.
Seems like you never even saw the point (and still seem completely clueless), so it is no wonder you missed it ... reality check here! Stupid is as stupid does.
I quoted your mystic quotes which “YOU KNOW” I do not believe in and asked you if you thought this nonsense had some special meaning to me … apparently you foolishly seemed to think it did because you accused me of making them.
This IS the whole point: you DO NOT CARE what I think or what I believe in (or not) or even what I might try to say and write … how do I know this you say … BECAUSE you were too busy attacking ME for what you did not in any honestly try to read for context (just key words and fragments you can manipulate just like the other good people taught to do) and … because you have never one time civilly asked me for ANYTHING least of all clarification … being just too damn busy telling me what I think and I mean and I feel. I for one, would like to see you (NOW) shove that Bible of yours where it should be anyway … and take all your GOOD INTENTIONS and CONCERN for your fellow man and try force-feeding it to some lackey somewhere else more susceptible to your nonsense than I apparently am.
From your own words, you believe it's the truth that religious (Catholic) parents indoctrinate their children with unknowns and lies … presented as undeniable truth?
And when all else fails, drop back (punt) and try to bring up some of the previous trash that made no sense back then either. If yor are even capable of going back and look look at MY QUOTE, you should be able to see that YOU are in error here.
Do you remember any of this statements (of course not) because you did not pay any attention at all to any of them in the first place:
“I will say that I understand children need to be protected and nurtured and brainwashed (for lack of a better term), but what is dumped into their heads from birth is all they have to work with.” Something wrong here?
“If YOU are religious, you teach your children early of its merits, sanctity and uncontestable divinity.” Something wrong here?
Talking about people in power “JUST STOP LYING and being dishonest, deceitful, two-faced, insincere, misleading, mendacious … and all will be well” Surely there is damnation here … somewhere?
“I am an atheist and do not care what you think or believe, these are our choices.” Must be a brutal attack on Christianity and all the good people … Gurr?
“If your parents are religious (Islam included), then they start brainwashing indoctrinating their children in THEIR (yours) dictated views, and for children resistance is futile.” Is there a lie here somewhere, or some mind staggering attack against your sanctity (now it is Catholic, because I am an EX idiot I guess)t. something here that a lie or is unfounded
No religious implications, “Truth be told, we have little to no control … as to how we are groomed until …”. You just let me know when I get to my persecutions of your precious mumbo-jumbo.
“I am happy for you then if for no other reason that you think you are … that’s good enough for me. But that is about as far as I can go with it. I guess my confusion here is this: Why would you deny me my peace and happiness (that you so cherish for yourselves)? It just doesn’t compute for me” You will not even accept a compliment, how small of me.
“Lulu, as an afterthought, did it ever occur to you to actually comment on the article itself? That is usually the case in my circle but maybe this is another religious thing. If you actually looked at the article as an article with a title, a theme, a story (of sorts), something with merit or not, then you might actually be able to comment on the subject matter, for a change of pace.” Dah!
“I am an Atheist (as I have stated) and as such, I am always fair game for those of all Faiths, strange that.” Guess I was wrong on this one … seems I am only fair game for Christians in general and you dingbats specifically.
“I guess this is one of the imponderables in life. I am very happy and secure in my poverty and I am at peace with Nature, I suppose your equivalent would be God.” Unfair malicious attack … nothing is equivalent with (your) God … which IS the point here. But then again, I forgot, you kindred souls DO NOT CARE!
“Is this ridiculousness really necessary: you fault me for my self-admitted lacking in your faith … and then you pepper me with meaningless scriptures? I fail to see any point to this … please enlighten me? “ Maybe this was just too complicated a concept for you smart people to comprehend.
“I know this was an effort in futility but I needed to get it off my chest” For MY benefit not YOURS.
“I do not care what you think, like or do and it would never occur to me to try and change any of that … Is it just too much to ask for the same from you.” Are you folks really this stupid or what?
When you reach a certain point under brainwashing mental conditioning and when you have given yourselves completely to whatever THE cause is, you lose all perspective because you think you have all the answers to all the questions all from a mystic BOOK forgiving Yourselves for indiscretions, slips, falls and whatnot all for the asking, a quality you seem to value so much that you sequester it all to yourselves... because you sure as hell do not practice it.
