you lack empathy - of course as a bully you are a psychopath

no surprise

delete my membership

make my day

I have never dealt with such a mob of cunts in my life

"The particular Gatha which provides striking parallels for Second Isaiah is Yasna 44. This is formed as a series of questions addressed to Ahura Mazda"

google that and read Boyces books - Yasna 44 is only one of many bits given to the Jews by Zoroastrians - and the Yasna 44 is addressed to Ahura Mazda but that name is replaced with YHWH - absolute proof positive to anyone but a mental defective like you that YHWH and Ahura Mazda are the same.

I know am wasting my time trying to talk to ignorant cunts like you cunts.

Boris, you don't know what health any of us are in.

You didn't play the sick man card till your claims were whopped.

You may be suspended, but the mods here do not delete you.

Here - kill your notifications off.

Dear Boris,

Perhaps you are the one who isn't listening?

I can't see that anyone is "treating you like shit", but rather that they respectfully disagree with the proposition you've presented.

In fact, it is you who is treating us like shit, with your aggressive and unwarranted slurs like arseholes, bullies, psychopaths, thugs, ...

I expect that we all empathise with the fact that you're terminally ill, but that's really no excuse for your egregious behavior.

Nope, didn't miss it.

You have my sympathies. It's a tough thing to face, for sure.

You know nothing about anyone else here's situation. And yet you feel perfectly justified in labelling us cunts and fools, and claiming to have been treated like shit, simply on the basis that people didn't immediately agree with some fairly contentious claims.

No-one here knew that you were terminally ill until you told us (and frankly, we have no way of knowing if it's even true, though I'll assume it is). What did you expect was going to be the response to your posts? An echo chamber?

You've made a number of assertions poorly supported by sources aided and abetted by spurious logical leaps. You've utterly failed to engage on anything like a civil level with those of us who have, for the most part, been pretty fucking accommodating whilst not necessarily agreeing with you.

Oh, I'm fairly sure I understand.

Well, if xtianity is dying, I reckon it will outlive me, at least, try as I might.

The trick is to live each day purposefully, and not drag a fucking JJ Richards skip of regrets with you.

Epicurus, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius are more useful than a shelf full of other books, if you put them to good use.

I am sorry for your position Boris. It is an unenviable one. But one does not require a terminal illness to have a low tolerance for fools or being treated like shit. These things happen to us here regularly.
The people here have tried to engage in a discussion with you. If you prefer to see their disagreement with your position as anything but discussion, that is your view alone. People are allowed to disagree here.
Here in this place is the opportunity for many many interesting discussions. It is up to you as to how you engage.
Tell me, would you prefer that those that have disagreed with you suddenly change their views because you are terminally ill? Is that what you would really like? Sympathy agreement? I doubt it, because you seem intelligent and well read and articulate.
Or perhaps I'm wrong

if 70% of the youth continue to leave churches in the US and I believe here in Australia as well - they churches will collapse and as the older generation dies off the young people are not going to be there to carry it on.

Who care about Africa where they burn and murder witches because the Bible says so.

Its just another primitive cult with primitive people to be honest and politically incorrect.
Just like Hill$ong and its imitators have largely played down the old gospel notions in favour of a kind of compromised, corporate church, in which Jeebus is as remote as the love-object in a 1950s teen love-song, churches will adapt.

As long as bums are on seats and (more importantly) there are $ coming in to keep the enterprise ticking, there will be churches of a sort.

Emphasis is changing, too. Your vote and your Facebook likes may already have overtaken your salvation in relative importance.

See it all over Australia, old churches are getting a bit of a reno and being transformed into restaurants or just private residences. My cousin just bought one near Camberdown Victoria, all ready for a decent makover since all it flock have long died away.
