See the "Noah's Ark Dinosaurs" thread. That debate is hot and several members have both hands full of weapons. Yet, there are no personal attacks, no childish retorts. In fact, there has been open discussion of mutual respect between them, despite the fact that they are attacking with unmitigated ferocity.



There are two reasons for that:

1) FrGamble is a gentleman in the full sense of the term.

2) While I disagree with 99% of what he says (well, maybe more like 97%), and think his religion is detrimental to a happy human life on this world, FrGamble does not advocate using the power of the state to compel obedience to his religion's moral code (unlike many others here). He begins and ends with peaceful persuasion. I don't know the reason for this, but I appreciate it. And I will defend his right to continue to do so. Atatcking his person would be folly on my part, quite aside from the rules of the board.

You are right. Religion is detrimental to a happy life, OF SIN. You hit the nail right on the head. Good for you! The truth is out! AMEN

This contributes absolutely nothing to the debate or the conversation.

Do you think adding two words in CAPS will make me fall on my knees, suddenly overcome with, what?, realization? faith? guilt? remorse? I'm sorry, you were short at least two exclamation points ;)

o:

People are created in God's image
People have a sense of humor
Therefore God has a sense of humor.

I rest my case.

If you rest your case on that, you have a weak case . I can poke more holes in that theory then one of your pasta strainers. Since I don't want to spend all night ill just mention a few things. I could even argue you case for you and point out some things you could use to win your case, but what your saying dose not cut it. I may even contradict myself. lets see where it goes.


IMAGE = LOOKS not feelings and or emotions. I think you would be a huge minority with that theory. People have very evil thoughts and do very stupid things. Some people have no scene of humor. We wouldn't know for a fact that Adam even had a scene of humor. I doubt he was telling jokes to Eve in the garden. (nice melons Eve)

I am fairly certain no where in the bible does it really mention humor. The bible covers a vast wealth of so called knowledge, teaching and everything you can imagine. If he had a scene of humor, I think we would have some scripture indicating this. A time to cry and a time to laugh, I belie is in the bible (don't quote me on that) but just because he created it, doesn't mean he has or does it, in a way we are talking about. This would also mean God has SEX and dose some other perverted things, since he is the one who created sexuality. God did not create EVERYTHING, God did not create SIN. So he may have not created humor as well.

Since God is perfect, then his scene of humor would also be perfect and in no way sinful. I consider FRgamble's humor in that comment sinful in gods eyes(Not Mine).

You may be able to argue that god is Jealous and we can also be jealous.You can say that god gives us all his emotions and he has all the same emotions that we do. I think gods jealousy is a different kind of Jealousy, a better word for what we feel, is envy and that is a sin.

If god does in fact have a sense of humor its not the one we are talking about, its twisted, he is laughing at us not with us, he looks and laughs how ludicrous and ridiculous we are.

God once asked Moses if his arm was too short. Elijah once commented that the god of his contending prophets must be taking a dump! That's some funny s**t there! Case closed.

I have never met a group of such literal stick in the mud people than some of the atheists on this forum. Can't a brother have a little fun? Of course I want this poor man and all people to be saved. Lighten up a little bit.

As far as God's sense of humor is concerned I'm sure Frank's book is fine but read anything by Rev. James Martin, S.J. In fact he has a book called "The Saint's Guide to Happiness". If we do the will of God, which is mainly to serve others by the way, then we will never be more happy. Try it out!

First let me say that I respect what you do and admire it. I do hold church leaders to a higher standard.


2nd , I think I you indicated I'm an atheist again. I'm not you someone did. Don't put me in that box, I do find it offensive. My only goal when talking about religion is to get REAL answers. I want people to keep an open mind about all possibilities and use some logic to do so. I don't want faith, I want facts.

It angers me that people are so dam certain their religion is the right one. If this is the case, IMO, they are the only people who will enter heaven. If I am to believe God is real and take what I gather from the bible. Very, Very few people will make it to heaven, very few people will be worthy of such a honor.
IMO, no one that gambles would ever make it into heaven ( I will get into why I think that at a different time)

Me a stick in the mud? I have been called a lot of thing but never a stick in the mud. Religious people are the sticks in the mud. Want a list of reasons? If i did that I will have a world record for the longest post ever.

I don't care if anyone believes in God, I think its a good thing.

I just cant stand the hypocrisy of the leaders in the church and their teachings.

I think believers should keep their beliefs to themselves out side of church and they should stop wasting their time on people who obviously are not going to change. I doubt anyone here is teetering on the brink of believing or not.

As I mentioned before there are message boards and people out there that are more needy of your services. Any time you spend arguing and point proving with us heathens here is taking away from people who really need guidance. Why try to convert just one of us when you could convert 20 or 30 people who are in a desperate place in life and are open to your guidance? this forum attracts some intelligent people who are smart enough to find god if and when they need to do so. Some things cause more harm then good. As they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Leader in the church Joking about someones death no matter who it is I find inappropriate. I respect your faith and what you do as I would a Doctor. If i heard a doctor joking about cancer I would find that inappropriate as well.

Just reading everything on this forum that Believers have said in including you. I can picture God pulling his hair out, while thinking, JUST STOP OMG YOUR MAKING IT WORST.......OY VEY . please for the love of god, stop making him angry, he might blow up a casino we are in or something to teach us both a lesson.

Here's some discussion of the first one:

http://stuffchristianslike.net/2008/02/14/44-saying-god-is-not-funny/

So yes, God is funny, but he's very sarcastic.

God's nearest human analogue is ... Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons:

"Scientists tell us that the fastest animal on earth, with a top speed of 120 feet per second, is a cow that has been dropped out of a helicopter."

You know the difference between religious people and Trekkies? No one has ever been burned at the stake for their opinion about Captain Kirk (at elast not yet; there was a bit about that in Futurama, regarding the Star Trek Wars, and something about the Star Wars Trek).
