10 Deep Questions for Everyone


Since the most popular post for me so far has been my follow-up to the 10 questions I want to see how this one goes.  These questions by their very nature are much deeper in thought.

The purpose of these questions is to provoke you to thinking on a deeper level.  Perhaps on a deeper level then you have ever thought before.  I realize the religious will try to answer these from the mindset of their religious beliefs.  However they are phrased in a way as to make quoting from a bible or a so-called holy book difficult if not impossible.

Just saying well the bible says so is really not an answer.  The reason the bible says so is not an answer is no Christian, Muslim or Jew would accept, “Well this is what the Sumerians or Egyptians wrote so that proves it is true.”

Since no Christian would accept as fact the claims of another religion because it is what their book says then you can’t use that as evidence for what you believe.  To try to do this is trying to have a double standard.  While you may like your double standard because it benefits you there is no logical reason why anyone else should like your double standard.

If you as a Christian, Muslim or Jew want to use your so-called holy book as evidence then you must first provide reasons why that holy book is reliable evidence.  It is important to realize Circular Reasoning doesn’t prove your claim.  Here is an example of Circular reasoning.

1.  How did the Universe come into being?  (Be as Specific as Possible)

2.  How did Life on this Planet begin?  (Be as Specific as Possible)

3.  How did Human Life begin?  (Be as Specific as Possible)

4.  Do you accept the possibility of Aliens having been on Earth in the Ancient world?

5.  Define as clearly as you can what you believe God would be like.  What makes something a God?

6.  What matters most in life the beliefs people have about a God or how they treat each other & live their life?

7.  Since Life is not based on All or Nothing why should an afterlife be based on All or Nothing?  (For Atheists Assume for the moment an afterlife does exist)

8.  Do you accept the idea presented by Quantum Physics of Multiple Dimensions?  That there are 10+ Dimensions?

9.  Is there anything someone could say that would convince you their religion or lack there of is true?

10.  Why should anyone believe in your religion or lack there of?

Bonus Question:  What is the Meaning of Life?  Not just your personal life but all life.

This last is completely subjective and is intended only to get you to think about the grand picture of life.

Are these Comments in Another Language or Spam?


I can definitely tell I am reaching a much wider audience with my posts.  However I have gotten comments that I don’t understand and need help with.

I realize not everyone knows English which is why I need some help from all of you.  I got 16 Comments that are listed as Spam but I don’t know if they are or are just in another language.

Clearly if you recognize any of these or can read them please translate for me.  If this is just another version of the garbage type spam that apppears from time to time and I delete let me know.

To me these are Gibberish but I’ll give the benifit of the doubt and not delete them until I know one way or the other.

Here they are.

Thanks

Follow up on 10 Questions for Christians


When I originally came up with these questions I wasn’t trying to do a type of Got Ya but when I sat back and looked at them I did realize each Question except the last is really a two-edged sword. In the first 9 questions the Atheist would give a clear No. While all of them do fit with in what is written in the bible or in the case of number 2 this is a common one the born again Christians will try to claim.

I am going to go through each question and explain the reasoning behind it and the problems with the Christian Answers to these questions. (If there are problems)

The original question is in type like this. While the Christian Answers are in Bold type. And my response to those answers is in Italic Type.

1. Do you believe in Odin, Zeus, Ra, Or Any other Religions God? If not why not?

No, because none of them are real.

Not Only is This the Exact Same Reason Atheists / Anti Theists don’t believe in Your God but this is also Word For Word for what the Atheist / Anti Theist says about Your God and All Gods!

2. Do you really believe you can have a Personal Relationship with a character from a book? If so do you believe you have a Personal Relationship with Superman, Batman, Spiderman or the X Men?

Only if the book is Holy, however i think it would be cool if I had personal friendship/friendship with billionaire Bruce Wayne

This answer actually amused me because who exactly is it that would decide if a Book is Holy or Not?

I have no doubt the Jews think their Tannakh (Torah) is Holy, While the Muslims think their Quran is Holy. The Hindus think their Rig Veda is Holy. The Buddhist think their writings are Holy, The Wiccans think their writings are Holy, The Satanists think their writings are Holy (At least to them).  So the idea of something being considered Holy is completely subjective and as meaningless as the belief in a God (as the first Question). After all a person who believes in the Norse Religion would believe in Odin, While the Greek would believe in Zeus, The Egyptian would believe in Ra and so on for all religions.

The Major glaring problem with this answer is regardless of a Book being “Holy” or not it is impossible to have a Personal Relationship with someone in that book unless You have Personally met them and Personally interacted with them.  After all the Key Words in that question were Personal & Relationship. Neither of which apply to a character in a story even if you have deluded yourself into thinking they are real.

3. Is the ideal society one of absolute Slavery? (An Existence Completely Centered around the service to a Dictator / Master?)

no, slaves don’t have rights or wills, but trying to equate religion to slavery is a lil absurd. Because even in religion there is the right of the individual to reject the religion were as in slavery you have no rights, you have no will. You are just property.

This answer surprised me at how biblically inaccurate it was.  However for a Christian to not know their own bible, even though they claim to believe it.  Frankly doesn’t surprise me one bit.

One phrase that is common for Christians to say is, “I turned my life over to Jesus” or “Everything I do is for the Glory of God” or equally repulsive and meaningless statements.  These sentiments sound good but if you actually stop and think about them it renders you nothing but a mindless drone.

If you turn over your Car, House, Computer or anything else to someone else then you no longer have control over it.  Which means if you are claiming to do this with your Life then you are giving up your Freewill & Rights because you have Given your Life to this God thing.  Which means they control your life not you.  Which I would also point out is completely impossible since there is no evidence Jesus or the Christian God even exist.  So this would be like turning your life over to Superman, Batman, Spiderman, etc.  You can say it and think you are doing something yet ultimately you are doing nothing since these figures don’t exist to collect on what you have turned over to them.

However from a completely Biblical view this answer is false for multiple reasons.

1. Exodus 20:17  Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. 

This is listing all of the Property that belongs to your Neighbor.  This By The Way is the Tenth Commandment.  You know the Perfect Law of Your Perfect Unchangeable God!

In this one command it lists a Wife as well as a Male & Female Servant (Slave) as the Property of the Neighbor (Which would be a Man).  It lists them right along with Animals, A House and Anything that is your Neighbor’s.  So based on this only Men are Free.  Unless they are owned by someone else then they are just Property.

2.  1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 

&

1 Corinthians 7:23  Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.

Here are two places just one chapter apart where this idea that Christians were Bought with a Price is present.  As well as giving the Ownership of their Body & Spirit belongs to this God.  

There is also the fact that someone who is Free can’t be Bought.  If you Buy someone then they are your Property since you Bought them.  

There are a lot more places where I could show the Slavery to this God in the bible but I will leave it at these two to keep this from being to long.

4. Do you agree with Thought Crime or Mind Control?

thought crime is fiction, so know I don’t agree with it. Mind Control do I agree, but in all honesty any form of thought reform, marketing, psychology, religion, philosophy, commercials, propaganda, manipulation is a form of mind control. Any body with a mind, has been controlled at one point or another.

Clearly this person doesn’t understand what Thought Crime is.  To say Thought Crime is Fiction shows clearly this person is completely unaware of the Hate Crime Bill or “Thought Crime” Bill that was passed by Congress.

http://www.thevoicemagazine.com/headline-news/commentary-and-opinions/hate-crime-bill-or-thought-crime-bill.html

So calling Thought Crime Fiction is simply showing massive Ignorance.

But then we get into the real problem with this person.  They Do agree with Mind Control.  However to be fair to this person I honestly think this is also more Ignorance talking then an actual position on this.  After all what they go on to say doesn’t constitute Mind Control.  It could be seen as Manipulation or even Intimidation depending on the methods used.  However Mind Control is far more Sinister.  

http://www.phinnweb.org/neuro/brainwash/

Another term for Mind Control is Brainwashing.  That Article lists the ways in which Mind Control / Brainwashing can be achieved.  It is also important to note that Religious Conversion is a type of Brainwashing / Mind Control. 

The exact same techniques that are present in Mind Control / Brainwashing are also present in Religious Conversion.  Or to be more Specific Christian Religious Conversion!

http://educate-yourself.org/cn/fundamentalistbrainwashing06jun05.shtml

That article is called Born Again Brainwashing.

This subject is not a Joke or something to take lightly.

There is a lot more on Mind Control that I could go into but don’t for the sake of length of this.

However one thing I do want to point out John 3:16 is all about Thought Crime / Mind Control.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

This is basing an afterlife state on nothing more than the Thoughts someone has in their life!  To make someones thoughts the Crime by which you are punishing them for is Thought Crime!

The Methods preachers use to program these ideas into someone is Mind Control / Brainwashing.

5. Do you support the Torture of someone just because they have different Beliefs / Thoughts then you have?

no

Well this is a relief.  However I do question how this person can honestly be a Christian and yet not agree with something Jesus spoke of in Mark 9:43 – 48

Jesus actually advocated Self Mutilation instead of going to Hell.

Jesus also said about going to Heaven with one Eye as if he actually thought an injury to the Physical body would also be an injury the Spirit would have.  Which is rather comical if you think a Spirit is like a Ghost.

Mark 9:47  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: 

If this Jesus was God then this has to be the Dumbest God of All the made up Gods in Human history!

6. Do you think burning someone alive is a Good Moral act?

no

This was also a Relief but sadly this is something that has been all to common among Christians over the past 2 thousand years.  The Inquisitions were a major part of this.  However even in our society there have been cases of Christians putting their Children in Microwaves.

7. Do you support Scapegoating?

only in football games and basketball games

Nothing quite like showing you have no idea what Scapegoating really is. Especially since in the next answer what this person uses is Scapegoating!

This has got to be the Sickest of all the Christian ideas. It is one where Anyone can do Any evil thing they want then just say Jesus Forgive Me and magically poof all is forgiven. They are Perfect.

Yet No amount of you sick Christians crying to your fucking Jesus can undo one Second of the shit you did to someone else!

The Raped woman remains Raped!

The Murdered Person Remains Dead!

The Molested / Raped Child doesn’t get their innocence back!

But Your Guilt and Personal Responsibility Can Be Wiped Away By Babbling To A Jesus! This Is Fucking Sick!

8. Do you require a Blood Sacrifice in order to forgive someone?

Not anymore, in a biblical context . The book of Hebrews, lets us know Jesus was the perfect lamb. So he was the perfect/ultimate sacrifice to atone for all sins present, past and future.

First of all You forgiving someone has Nothing to do with your Stupid Imaginary Scapegoat Jesus!

Unless you are deluded enough to think you are the God of the Bible that Demanded that there be Blood & Death in order for you to forgive.

The truth of the matter is Atheists forgive people for screwing up and we don’t demand something DIE first. The Atheist is able to Forgive without Blood & Death but only because it is better to let go of anger and hate then to hold on to it.

Now don’t get me wrong I am not saying Atheists forgive everyone or that everything should be forgiven. If someone does something that hurts someone else it is up to Them to make it right. No amount of Babbling about a Jesus can undo what You did! That also doesn’t show that You accept any personal responsibility for your actions. Another concept that Christians really have a problem with.

There are some things that can’t be forgiven because there is no way to undo the damage you caused or even begin to make it right. Frankly if someone who Murdered, Raped or Molested or Abused someone else feels guilty about doing it I would say Good You fucking Should if they feel like a total shitball that is lower the whale shit and whale shit is at the bottom of the ocean I would say Great! But this doesn’t change what you fucking did and you don’t get a pass just because a fantasy book had a fictional Jesus Die on a cross!

9. Do you think if a child disobeys once that the penalty should be death?

no, but this is so far from the true context of Deuteronomy 21:18-21. This is talking about a true rebellious mindset of child who absolutely refuses the authority of his parents. And still acts out even after discipline. Verse 20 explains that. This law was designed to be a last resort to a child who has no hope of ever being functional in society.

Actually with this one I was thinking more of Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death.

However this answer shows how devoid of morals you really are. We Do Not Execute Children just because they disobey their parents! Someone that is Rebellious is Not someone who there is no hope for in society. I was Rebellious but I Never Broke A Single Law!

I simply didn’t listen to my parents. I Rebelled from what They said!

Nowhere in Deuteronomy 21:18 – 21 does it say anything about them not being able to function in society. This was strictly from the stand point of if they Do Not Obey their Parents!

Which actually goes hand in hand with how this God acts towards those that do not Think as he demands!

I Guess it shouldn’t surprise me that a Christian would approve of Infanticide!

10. Do you consider yourself to be a Good & Moral person?

It depends on what you define as good & moral. If my standard of good & moral is hitler, than yes-I think I’m pretty freaking awesome. But if my standard of good & moral is Jesus than No.

Considering how you answered these questions and how those answers would influence how you are most likely to behave in society I would say it is highly Questionable if you are Good or Moral.

But you are a typical Christian so there is that at least.

Questions for Christians (Theists)


It was suggested that i change the title to Christian Challenge and initially I liked that but the more I thought about it the more it didn’t sit right. The reason is this isn’t a Challenge of any sort but only Questions.

I am not sure what the issue some Christians have with just answering these questions. I will do a follow up post on this but I need to have Christians answering this first.

1. Do you believe in Odin, Zeus, Ra, Or Any other Religions God? If not why not?

2. Do you really believe you can have a Personal Relationship with a character from a book? If so do you believe you have a Personal Relationship with Superman, Batman, Spiderman or the X Men?

3. Is the ideal society one of absolute Slavery? (An Existence Completely Centered around the service to a Dictator / Master?)

4. Do you agree with Thought Crime or Mind Control?

5. Do you support the Torture of someone just because they have different Beliefs / Thoughts then you have?

6. Do you think burning someone alive is a Good Moral act?

7. Do you support Scapegoating?

8. Do you require a Blood Sacrifice in order to forgive someone?

9. Do you think if a child disobeys once that the penalty should be death?

10. Do you consider yourself to be a Good & Moral person?

If you answered Yes to any of questions 3 – 9 then explain how you define what Good & Moral behavior is.

Bonus Question: If you answered No to Questions 2 – 9 are you really a Christian at all or just want to live on after you die in some fantasy land you have made up in your own head?
