Birutegal,

TRUTH always sounds arrogant to the ignorant.

Every night before I go to sleep, I have my devotions.

I read at least 2 chapters from a book called "The Quotable Hitchens".

I use to fall asleep prematurely when I was a Christian and read the Bible before bedtime.

That never happens when reading the Hitch.

Fingers - "Convert to Christianity, shoot your neighbor in the head. No problem."

Of course there's a problem - you're going to jail and you'll suffer for your crime. Then IF you sincerely are sorry for what you did, do you think God should give you a break or say "I know you're sorry but you blew it for eternity!"?

Spinoza - " he was one of a vanishing breed of men who could actually get viscerally offended and disgusted by poor ideas argued poorly"

You mean like Bob Grant or Rush Limbough?

Well, they all died, but beyond that I do not know how they ended up, since I am not God and God has not told me.

Goodnight everyone.

Time to read a chapter of Hicth and go to sleep now.

"And if I die before I wake, I hope I don't forever bake".

ALOHA!

"Then IF you sincerely are sorry for what you did, do you think God should give you a break or say "I know you're sorry but you blew it for eternity!"?"

But if you're "once saved" you have nothing to be sorry about. You have the "get out of hell free card".

The whole idea is that a "saved" person, based on his relationship with Jesus, will not have the attitude that he can go out now and thumb his nose at Jesus and do whatever the hell he feels like doing.

"spl: Yes, I met God. No, I didn't "see" Him visually, no one can do that and live. "

Just has a mental images of the melting faces in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

A lot of the stuff religious people believe is silly. I hope God has a sense of humor.

""Whoever believes in him is not condemned. But whoever does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God." (John 3:18)"

Let's face it, kids. God is a _mean_ bugger.

""Do I think I'm going to paradise? Of course not. I wouldn't go if I was asked. I don't want to live in some (censored) celestial North Korea for one thing, where all I get to do is praise the dear leader from dawn till dusk. I don't want this, it would be hell for me."
-Christopher Hitchens "

Apparently, wherever Hitch is, I'll be there too. That makes me proud.

Of course, where we'll really be is star stuff. That's OK too. I'll be dead; I won't care.

Now THAT is a thoughtful post about a thoughtful God.

I still don't believe it exists, but I wish more theists thought like this.

"I won't go into the specifics of my experiences, but I will say they were blatant and undeniable communication from God. "

Or he imagined it. It's really really hard to tell the difference sometimes.

"I believe that our consciousness or whatever that part of us it is that exists and interacts in whatever dimensions it can sense cannot be destroyed since Einstein postulated that matter and energy cannot be destroyed and no one can disprove it. Because of that, I speculate that our conscience can thrive for a while after the body that hosts it dies. I have no idea for how long,"

Just when I think I've heard it all, someone comes along with another doozy and I can once again marvel at the levels of inanity to which simple ignorance can drive us.

"I don't know what more one would have to do to alienate oneself from God"

Aw, c'mon, rowley... really? Let's put Hitch up against Ken Hamm who is both ignorant AND arrogant. Or how about Hitler or Kim Jong Il or Kim Jong Sun? Let's stand him up next to the various Bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals (and the current Pope) who passed the pedophile trash around and let them abuse little children.

God's standards are bizarre.

"...I'm sure that if most people had the opportunity to judge someone who despised them in that way they would wish the worst for him."

We're talking about a God who A.) Claims to LOVE all his children and B.) withholds all empirical evidence of his existence. And he gets his feelings hurt?

Pfffft. The whole notion is childish. If God is _GOD_ then there is either no one in hell, or no one but God in heaven.

Yeah, that never made a lick of sense to me either.

Banished says:
"It seems to me that there are several types of atheists. There are those who are constitutionally unable to believe in anything that cannot be demonstrated and deeply distrust subjective experience. They tend to care less whether others are believers or not.

There are others who loathe religion as such. To them the existence of God is merely an interesting hypothesis. It's the hypocrisy, banality, and moral weakness of the religious that exercises them.

I haven't read Hitchen's book, but I suspect that he's the second type. "

I would appear to be both. I think you don't understand Hitchens if you don't think he was also.
