Ella, Yup, the clergy kept knowledge in the sanctuaries of the faithful and dispensed snippets to curry some favor from the temporal nobility, rich and powerful.
I already do. Given that you make no attempt to rebut it, I take it that you concede my point then.
So, He is in subjection to "the Laws of Nature" He created Himself. Pull your head out of that tube, please.
So the killing of all those innocent Egyptian children would not be considered murder. If that is the case, why do we get so uptight when someone bombs a school? Your god had a choice to kill the perpetrators of the crime or murder innocent children. He even bragged about murdering the children.
How are atheist children "brainwashed" into atheism? I was taught to think for myself and reach my own conclusions. My parents believed in a god....but I never did. The complete and total lack of any shred of evidence, coupled with the ridiculously implausible claims was enough for me. I certainly wasn't "brainwashed" into it. Likewise, my own children were given all the information, resources and opportunities to learn about all the world's religions and were raised knowing that their beliefs were just that....theirs.

They didn't know he was going to be killed, but he did and told them, but it wasn't until that last 24hrs or less, that they realised what was going to happen. And when he died, they didn't think of him as dying for their sins. They thought he was gone, and that was the end of things.

For people who are handicapped. For children.
I've never lived outside of Louisiana, and I don't believe in recipe hoarding. It's really ridiculous, because no two people will ever make the same exact dish, even following the same recipe.
We had our chance and we blew it by electing Republicans. Now the world can descend back into pre-war chaos, complete with new countries pursuing nukes. Great.
Mhmmm. And what is instinct?
I'm always open to changing my opinion based upon the discovery of new verifiable evidence.
Well I wouldn't forgive him. But then that's me in my position. I don't have kids with a b*st*rd whom I'd have to be nice to at some point for the kids. I like "Bat Cat"s suggestion but it isn't practical - but I'd certainly want to do something to his little friend to prevent him putting it where it mustn't go.
