“its impossible to research the bible because everything that happened in it was part of Gods plan and there is no way to predict or understand what He calls us to do. if anybody does try to research the bible then they will end up contradicting themselves simply because they dont know how to put what they find together... no matter how intelligent they may be. im not saying you have to beilieve- that would be judging and/or telling you how to live your life- but i am sad that you choose to not believe in him.”
“im sad that you have turned away from God... you might say that he doesnt exist but i know better and not because of what teh bible says... expeirences in my life have led me to know that he is real.”

“Exactly the same here, gameplyer. It'd take me days to write down all that the Lord has done in my life and like you, that doesn't even count what the Bible says about Him. I know, like you I'm sure, my life would be very empty without Christ. I couldn't even imagine it. (nor would I want to)

“At this point in my life after doing all of the research that I have done on the Bible, I can say that I do not believe in a "God" who watches over us all...
No one can know for sure what started the universe... That will always be a mystery. What I do know is that there are over 30 Books missing from the Bible, so that makes it incomplete.
There are also over 1200 Errors and Contradictions in the Bible. There is also over 30 other "God" like stories that match the Jesus story but written 1500-3000 years before Jesus or the Bible.
Please take a look at some of these sites I posted.
I live a Great life with no need to worship a "God" who I do not believe is there.
Or worship a God who I have to fear is going to throw me into a "Lake of Fire" to burn forever just because I choose not to believe!
“actually, what that means is some religions dont practice mass, and that the story does not know if the church was one that does mass or doesnt do mass. penecostals, jews, and muslims are just a few of the groups that dont participate or practice mass.”
“all thats left for McDonalds is to go downhill. these other places have no place to go but up. THATS the difference. and it might just make what we know as reality to become history. never can predict the future.”
“you cant say FOR CERTAIN if they do or dont. you may be right- they might cook them a little before they get the order then finish cooking afterwards- but it might also be as rare as if you bought it in the store.”
“if it was water or pop, it was more then likely free refills. if it was alcohol, then yeah, go easy on the drinks. also, theres no way to know what the bill was. id like to see it just to see what he meant by he cant afford it. after all, a normal tip is 10% of your total bill, so most of the time its under 5 dollars. obviously it can be more or less depending on quality of service- like if you had really really good/bad service-, what you had, what it cost, etc.”
“just because he refused to tip doesnt mean hes cheap or rich. and it certainly doesnt mean hes driving a mercedes. i dont agree with what he did, but i wont say that he should or shouldnt because i dont know him.”
“there are many things i dont like about Obama's policies but I would never use those policies as an excuse not to tip. doing so is just blaming others for your problems.”

“Yeah, it is like beating your dog when your wife yells at you. Pathetic. If you don't like a particular restaurant and/or its owner, don't go there. Pure and simple!!! The waiters and waitresses there will soon find another job at a successful restaurant. In the meantime they should not have to wait and waste their time and energy on low-life cheapskates like this guy. This kind of crap makes the world a lesser place and sure the heck DOES NOT swell the ranks of the Republican party. In fact, I suspect it makes people more repulsed by many of its members.”

“Besides, the current tax changes we're experiencing are a congressional/legislative matter, not executive. Can't scapegoat Obama for this one.”

“actually you seemed to have missed my point. i said that there are salads and whatnot, so unless your telling me that McDonalds fries lettuce, tomatoes, and whatever other items they use in their salads, your point about the process is moot.”
Brendan Sutherland on Jan 9, 2013 at 07:59:37
“Please refer to what I said about the apples and imagine the same for lettuce. And then imagine the same for tomatoes. Imagine what these items are doing all the way up to the point that you put them into your mouth. (Or read about it.)
I can see you're loving it, so there's no point in us talking anymore.”
Jan 8, 2013 at 14:49:08
“actually, McDonalds has wraps and salads. AGAIN its not uber healthy like what you would make at home but they have more then burgers and fries. if you dont believe me look at the menu when you next walk into a McDonalds and look for salads and wraps.”
Brendan Sutherland on Jan 8, 2013 at 15:03:08
“You seem to have missed my point about process. (I won't walk into a McDonald's)”

“not everything in Red Robin is junk food just like not everything at McDonalds is junk food. im not saying its healthy healthy like homecooking, but they do have some things like salads which are healthier then the burgers and fries.”
Brendan Sutherland on Jan 8, 2013 at 09:42:36
“Yes, everything in McDonald's IS junk food. We all need to think more about the process. Potatoes aren't junk food. Apples aren't junk food. But those potatoes are and apples shipped in a truck in little plastic bags are poisoning you.”
Jan 8, 2013 at 09:18:49
“how do u know that she did eat greasy food? yes Red Robin is known for burgers, but they also have salads and wraps which are probably healthier then McDonalds. im not saying that she didnt eat greasy food or that she shouldnt if she did, im merely saying that the story doesnt say if they ate greasy food or not.”

“The receipt posted with the article listed a chophouse burger, cheese pizza, a bacon cheeseburger with a side of onion rings and soda pop, but then again, maybe she just watched her family eat the stuff.”

“Im sorry you didn't get I was making a joke/poking fun. I will put "hey this is to make a joke/poke fun about this article" so in the future if you read something I post you will get it was supposed to be funny......”
“your knowledge of the story is incomplete. Jesus was created by Marys faith in the holy spirit, not by any contact with sexual organs. in other words, Mary believed in God and that belief led her to be pregnant, according to the bible. i merely explain and explained the best i can. whether you choose to believe or not is your choice and i hope that God will still bless you.”
“i explained, not argued. i cant give evidence except from teh bible and you choose not to believe it. but one day you will see that you were wrong. i hope that God will bless you even though you dont believe.”
“there are two beings in Christianity: God and Satan. Satan is known as the evil one and he is the reason that we have such sins as pediophilia etc. if mortals choose to sin then it is because Satan tempts them and they make no attempt to ask for the strength to stop it. im not saying u have to believe and im not offended by what you said. im merely explaining ur reasoning of sins not being stopped.”
marmite9 on Dec 13, 2012 at 20:13:40
“Then you say Sin was created by Satan. Thy should not covet thy neighbours wife right ! !
So when God gave Mary his child ( I bet Joseph was pretty peeved at that one ) he was actually committing a sin as Mary was a married woman. Soooooo Satan must have had a hand in making God Sin.
So what you are saying is Jesus was sort of the son of Satan?
Too many holes in the bibles arguments I think. maybe the flood is really a flood of people who are realising that the bible and church are just another tool to extract wealth from the masses.”
marmite9 on Dec 13, 2012 at 20:05:44
“I am not a paid up member of "The God Squad " I'm just a decent human being trying to be the best person I can, I have done a lot for charity, given money and help when ever and where ever I could. I would walk to the ends of the earth to help or protect my wife, would never see her or any of my family come to harm.
I don't need to hide my actions or inaction behind any god or diety.
Almost all wars and conflict in this world have been bought about by greed and religion.
So I choose not to believe in any God. If I were created or put on this earth by GOD, why did he make me an athiest?
Oh don't tell me That was Satan too, give me a break.”
marmite9 on Dec 13, 2012 at 19:54:50
“Well with that reasoning God must have created Sin and Satan. Because with no-one on the planet to marry Adam and Eve how were they ever going to create a population without Sin or Satan?
It couldn't have happened.
Then you have the incest, with only Adam and Eve and their offspring the only way to populate the world would have been through incest.
I'm sorry but your argument doesn't hold water. Satan was invented to cover up all the flaws in the bible.”
“maybe your right in the scope of the bible being somewhat exaggerated. but to deny that God is as real as the tree in the city parks, or the grass that can be seen everywhere, is only going to hurt yourself. God doesnt have to stick with what happened in the bible, for God could use science if he wanted to.”
marmite9 on Dec 11, 2012 at 21:47:11
“I'm not denying in any God figure I just think, and with no disrespect to anyones beliefs. After all it's just a belief, A book of stories that has been drilled into people over centuries. You only believe because you have been told over and over. Most if not all beliefs are a means to extract money, work etc from the masses. If GOD exists or ever did exist don't you think he would stop religious wars, famine, peodophilia. The list is endless. There are millions of reasons I don't believe in any GOD and only one reason I should and that's because someone who believes tells me I should too. Not good enough in my book.
I'm not saying any of this to offend anyone I'm just voicing my opinion as others have theirs.”
“just because God gives us ways to explain something, it doesnt mean that he didnt do it. there are too many times in my life where my back was against the wall, with no way to fight back against my problems and i prayed for them to go away. without knowing how or why, they vanished and i found that my life was easier then before i prayed. it cant be a coincidence or luck since i havent found anything that supports either. still, you have a right to say what you want. i hope that God will still bless you, even though you practice the sin of Sloth. and if you dont know what that is, then you can look it up.”
“even if you dont believe in God- which you have a right to do so if you choose- the fact remains that there are too many planets out there for us to have the only life in the universe. are they on Mars? no. but that doesnt mean they arent out there.”

“look up MEDICAID. it is a system that already covers everybody for a low rate. so why do we need Obamacare? everybodys covered under MEDICAID and its a state paid for system. so the answer is we dont need Obamacare.”
jsgaetano on Nov 15, 2012 at 14:26:00
“Yeah, we do need ObamaCare. Because over 30 years of failed and fraud-based ideology has seen health care costs double every 10 years under the conservative's provenly failed model.
Time to finally admit conservative ideology is a failure and fraud.”
