When the message is “Be a good person” I find religion quite comforting. I’d rather believe in God than humanity, because human beings are generally crap tongue wink

And I don’t believe anyone who tells me what God wants me to do. If God wants to communicate someone to me He’ll pull a Joan of Arc and I’ll wake up with a flaming angel in my room.

The problems start when people put their religeous beliefs on a pedestal and expect everything to conform to them. Their god is inerrent, so their beliefs are inerrent; in christians, this is the sin of pride as they are basically saying they are inerrent.

Our dear friend, BibleDude is a mild case…

[quote author=“FSTDT”]”[Asked if the Bible said the sky was green, would they accept that or would or assume somehow their interpretation of the Bible was wrong?]

I would wake up every day and thank God for His beautiful green sky.

You are attempting to naturalize a supernatural God. The Bible says the wisdom of man is foolisness to God. I assume God knows far better what color the sky is than fallible, imperfect men do.

And yet so much emphasis is put on wise men in the Bible tongue wink

And people like Bible John (sorry, I mean Bible Dude wink) are severely lacking in wisdom.

On-topic joke:

Why did the council have to abandon the Easterhouse Nativity Play?


Because they couldn’t find three wise men, let alone a virgin.

Sounds like the place I grew up.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
