I am MOST GRACIOUS MOST MERCIFUL !
    #2152084 - 12/02/03 04:23 PM (13 years, 8 days ago)

I was just having a conversation with some religious folks
about how wonderfully Gracious and Merfiful God is...
the argument they gave me was that God is Most Gracious
Most Merciful cause he could be tortuing us and cooking
us alive right now if he wanted to...but he isn't...
By this logic, I too am most gracious most merciful for
all the attrocities that I could be commiting right now
but am not...  :rolleyes:
sigh...

I, for one, truly appreciate your restraint in wreaking havoc. Thank you.

Yeah, I was just sitting around thinking about all the people I could have tortured and killed during my lifetime. Everyone I know should be very grateful. :lol:


Seriously, most "religious" people have the most fucked up ideas about this existence.

I see what everyone is saying. It is so hard to form an opinion when you see both sides so clearly!

Ah yes... because we are automatically deserving of the absolute worst torture from the moment the sperm hits the egg, we should spend our lives in gratitude and servitude to an invisible man in the sky who is so merciful and benevolent for not burning us for his mere amusement.

What kind of sadistic asshole of a god would have any reason to torture his own creations, and who in their right minds would want to worship this god on a daily basis? There are some warped individuals out there!

Here we are, in these bodies, on this planet in an endless universe. This is not the extent of who we are... merely an extension of who we really are.

But that's the beauty of it! Even if we're deserving of burning in hell for not following the rules given to us by the One who supposedly created us, assuming we were created by Him, we won't be burning in hell, because of His benevolence! I think that deserves a bit of hero worship.

why are you guys talking about religion?

religion lost its relevance after world war 2, so lets talk about the spiritual significance of intersubjective phenomenology or something more interesting.

Dude!

I'm quoting (sort of) from the Bible! Read Paul! If you're a Christian, and you believe in the Bible, then you know that if you are guilty of one sin, you are guilty of all sin. But, if you believe that Jesus died for your sins, you are not going to burn in the fires of hell. It's a pretty cool system. We DESERVE to burn in hell, but we won't, if we believe!

He's not torturing us? I've been mistaken all this time.

Anyway, they don't have ideas, they just make them up when you start arguing because if they thought about it they would have to go through all the painful transitions of faith against fact, and who wants that? Logic is the devil. Evil is a black beast roaming the streets tonight, looking for your children, making them read Chomsky and smoke pot.

Well, I am capable of scaring off any Siberian tigers in the area by waving my left hand in the air while whistling "Dixie". *waves hand*
Hhhmm... not a tiger in sight.

Now, wouldn't be totally different if I said that waving my hand and whistling that tune would produce a finely rolled blunt, out of thin air?
:rolleyes:
Peace.

Loving every breath of you
