  1. I don’t know if you read CS’s newest post (slamming me … when I wasn’t even the guilty party) — but I think the first meme on this page sure undermines some of what he wrote. And of course, it fits well with Ark’s most recent posts.

    • No I missed it. But if anyone is going to try to say bad things about you I am not happy with that. Can you give me a link so I can get my own tow worthless cents in on the subject. Sorry I stopped following that religious bunch a while ago. Not that I doubt you couldn’t hold your own, far from it, I just want to watch you and the others destroy him. Hugs

      • I don’t follow his blog either. Ark mentioned that I had been “accused” in a comment so naturally, I had to take a look. And altho’ I would have much to say about his rant, like you, it’s simply not worth my time. If/when he visits my blog, I usually offer rebuttals, but to go up against the indoctrination of people like Wally and IB? I have many much more pleasurable ways to spend my time.

            • Nan if you read the threat I added my thoughts to John first came back instantly. Then I replied to him and mentioned I had treated him fairly and only asked he address the issue I showed via link and if he could respond with out using the bible I was willing to hear it, but if he was not going to be honest then don’t disrespect me as I had not disrespected him. I am of course paraphrasing as I don’t want to copy and paste. The point is , he let it drop. I can respect that. That is what I asked him to do if he couldn’t prove the things out side the use of the bible. So I respect that. He is admitting he can not show it outside the bible. Hugs

              • Yes … I saw the (great) image you posted. In actuality, there’s really nothing a Christian can say in response … but you know none of them will take it lying down. And ESPECIALLY coloring book … whoops! Colorstorm.

  2. @ ..and I Believe that they are worth protecting
    as is our planet and our future.
    Found in the German media:
    With the Brasilian elections and the election of this trump-twinin Brazilia, the dangers for the climate have risen by numbers, the Brazilian president doesn’t care for the necessity of virging intact jungle, but he intends to earn large amounts of money by deforesting lager areas of the Jungle thus stealing the earth its “lungs” that the industrial world so badly needs.

  3. Hey Scott-

    I see I got an honorable mention here. FYI, if you notice I did not ignore your query- I simply pointed you to a previous post I wrote which answered directly your concern as to why things were not written be others than the Biblical accounts.

    Also, I SLAMMED no one, and I was careful to say so. I can be totally against a point of view without SLAMMING.

    That said, it is understandable why many do not my blog. Many people cannot tolerate absolute confidence in the scriptures. I apologize for nothing.

    • Good morning ColorStorm. You are welcome to visit and enjoy the stuff here in my Toy Box. A lot of it wont be to your taste, but some may. I will reread your post at the link again. Yesterday it made little sense. May it will make more sense over coffee. But I doubt it. Your style of writing doesn’t seem to make things clearer, it is like listening to Kent Hovind. Lots of sound and little real information, and what information is there has been edited and twisted.

      I apologize for the typos I have to do better at proof reading.

      Yes Nan did give me the link to your blog, so you see Ark was correct in that he did not tell me of your post nor give me the meme I posted the link to.

      You are welcome to disagree and have other opinions here. I will say there are basically two ways to do so. 1) is to simply say you disagree and let it go. 2) You can say why you disagree, what your opinion is and why. The last part is important. It can’t simply be your opinion if you want it to have weight and be convincing, it needs a factual bases or a preponderance of evidence.

      ColorStorm ( John ) It is not the your belief in god that drives people from your blog. If you write in a way that really means nothing, could stand for anything, is an admiration with out saying why, it simply means little and people get little out of it. Your conviction is not the issue. It is how you express it that is.

      I think that is the biggest difference between us John, I do apologize when it is appropriate. As I did for the typos and misspellings in my replies and comments. I could explain my medical problems and use it as an excuse but the truth is I was in a hurry and did not proof read what I typed well enough to see the errors. I think a good person tries to be reasonable to / with others.
      Be well. Hope to see you here more often. Hugs

    • Hello John. I reread the post my original comment to Tricia was on. I assumed you meant that post as there was no other reply to me there and I couldn’t find any link to a previous post. Send me a link to the reply if I missed it. Here is the thing. I read the post again this morning. It still is just a bunch of assertions. John you make a list of things claimed in the book to have happened and act as though that is proof it did happen. Not the way it works and doesn’t answer the meme I used in my comment.

      You assert the blind were made to see ( rubbing dirt and spit into the eyes not a great idea ) and four day old smelly dead person come back to life ( was he then a zombie and kept smelling or did he get a new body ) but you do not show how this violation of biology could possibly happen. We know miracles do not happen as they violate the laws of reality. The very laws that make our universe what it is and work the way it does says a dead brain and decomposing body do not come back to life. Now we also know that rubbing spit and dirt in to your eye wont help you see, it will destroy your sight. It would scratch and mare the lens of the eye and do other damage. Funny miracles stopped happening about the time we could video tape them and also use electronic devices to refute them.

      You listed a lot of other things that you take to be true because it is written in a book you claim to be holy. Others have their holy books. There are even people who claim to be Jedi’s but they can not move things with their minds. The point has been expressed by Ark and others, using the same reasoning you are using, there is a hidden portal in a train station in London that if you run into a wall it opens into a new part of the station with a magic train.

      I hope you understand the point. Be well. Hugs

      • Of all the things u said here Scott, the thing that stands out the most is your point about LAW.

        LAW demands a lawgiver, unless you believe in the cosmic act of random serendipity, which I suppose is the essence of atheism, so good luck with that.

        • John that is a total dodge and you wonder why people don’t respond well to your writings? You know very well I was using the word in relation to scientific principles. There need be no “lawgiver”. That is word play.

          The physicist and astrophysicist, the field of sciences that looks into the universe and the laws at both super macro and super micro all agree the universe needed no cause, it is in its natural state, and so the action of inflation including the state before that is complete with out any needed cause giver. IN other words it simply works this way as that is normal for it to do so.

          Your view of common sense is neither. Hugs

            If u believe this is a dodge so be it. I have written hundreds of posts answering all your concerns, and it is pointless to address idle curiosity.

            But the reason people avoid me? Ha! Because I believe every word of God, and no godless scientist can compete with Him.

            • The blinders are on your brain, and I will make that clearer.
              Which of the 99 fairytales-books do you believe in! Would you mind telling me , how do you
              k n o w, that just your bible-version has truely the words of your god in it? And does that proof, that god exists? Shure, you can just talk about your god, and not about god.
              Do you know the biblewriters personally? Oh, then you must be 6000 years old; or if you are a believer in jesus, you ought to b e some 2000 years old. 😉 ?
              You more honestly must better say, that you believe every word that has been written down by unknown people , who said, they wrote down gods words. And you should, if you are honest, tell for instance me, that you have not the slightest proof for your statement.
              While any scientist works with repeatable facts, he can proof. Your statement about scientists is just a totally unproven statement of a facts igroaring roaring liony – you
              Eternity, go hope for it, nobody has jet been able to prove it’s existance .

              • Miles-

                Read the 38th of Job and discover that your concerns are nothing new.

                And be careful to observe that God has the final word, and if you honest, you must bow to the all powerful and only wise God.

                Key word: honest.

            • John words are simply sounds that we assign meaning to. Laws of natural only describe how the natural world works. Nothing more.

              You are correct on one thing, one of us has blinders on. Funny it is you who keeps talking about pointless curiosity and who can not accept valid data from a large majority of people educated and working in a field. If a god existed and if a god created / designed us he then gave us brains to do the science and find the data you so willingly dismiss.

              Go in Peace John, you have made your position clear even as you have not made your case. Be well. Hugs

  4. I thaought you were unable to answer questions put before you. Your strategy of a broken vinylrecord is just measly. you cite your fairytalebook like a proselytizer. But notize: There are people Who just and only stick to reproduceable facts.
    I really feel sorry for you that you decided to live in a cage of bibles fairytales surrounded with the fear of sins, and living with the lie, that reliability is for the other studpids that cant go to church telling a probably kidfucking priest ones sins — and be forgiven. The religion of the cowards, who do not want to stand up for what they have done.
    No my friend, what you lie about scientific factfinding is sooo poor, that I can only say: live with your lies from out of your fairytalebooks. (Which one of the 99 existing was it by the way?)
    The worst in my eyes aou are doing is, that you try to proselitize peple , if they wan that or if they dont. The lord of the unfree; you can hold it for yourself, unless you start honestly answering questions.
    I am a free Atheist, believing in facts only. While you poor man a believer in fairytales, totally unproven; do you notice that sometimes?

    • Hello Miles. People have been trying to get through to ColorStorm for years. Normally he never really answers a question, he just offers flowery praise for his god and claims that the bible is 100% correct and we just don’t understand god. He is circle in any reasoning he does and doesn’t care that is not evidence or proof of anything. He believes because the bible tells him so and the bible is right because he believes it. Good luck reaching him, so many have tried and given up. Hugs

      • Roaring lions world is a world of the cowards, made up from fairytales that these ‘in god we trust believers’ are unable to run through in their- by fairytales – blinded and contaminated brains.
        A world of cowards, because they can deny to be blamable for what they do.
        For instance: – After a kidfuckin priest or a woman-raping “christ” is done with his vitim, he crouches to his church to his probably kidraping “priest”, confesses what he has just done, feigning remorse and of course that probably kidraping priest will give him forgiveness. And for the probably kidraping “priest” there is his lovingly forgiving bishop, and for the probably women-raping bishop there is a lovingly forgiving cardinal and even for a probably Kidfucking cardinal there is a loving but forgving pope.
        And, what is the speciall gift to all the sinners: Nobody is allowed to talk to any other, whatever information he has been given while in the confession. Especially not to the police or to higher clergyman.

        Go to church , feign remorse and you shall be forgiven.

        Thats the invitation for murder and slaughter and raping and lieing and fraud.
        The admission is the greatest adventage the fairytale-writer invented for the believers, so they never must feel guilty for a longer period of time –
        See, the kidraping priest and other clergyman, raping kids again and again and again – and never have to feel really guily for their infamous and hurtful actions. Especially in their belief it doees not hinder them to be forgiven when it comes to dieing
        That is, why I call “christians” cowards, what they indeed are. – and the world would indeed be better off , if that building of lies in the fairytale of what is called bible would never have been thought in the heads of the ancient tale-tellers.
        So “christs” are those, that are the least responsible for what they do —- and that is, why the “roaring lion” is probablyx belonging to the believers: Sinning without being responsible!
        That is paradise on earth— and it even doesn’t prevent from going to heaven.

        • Hello Miles. I agree there are bad people in religions, and bad religious people. The churches of different religions that have sexual and physical abuse of children with out punishment are among the worst as you say. However even I admit not all religious people are bad. Not all people who are members of a religion are bad people. Maybe misinformed or denying reality because they want to to believe, but not necessarily bad people. Thank you Miles, you are a man of passion and like me you hate the harm of children. Hugs

  5. Just as not all cats are gray, I definitely know, that not all christians are bad, I didnt write that. But what I have to sayis, that what the churches do, is mostly bad. and so I do blame christians because only the least live really feeling their responsibility for all their surroundings. And look scottie: Soo many are siding with the racist trump, mayber because their Church or their clergyman favors him, for whatever reasons they may have.
    My comment was especially written in the direction of the “Roaring lion”, who is more of a Howler I guess , and I still think, in that direction of my comment it is spot on.

    • I know Miles, I know. I also know what you meant. I was saying how I have to keep reminding my self to look at it. I don’t want to get bitter I want to make a difference. If I let my self start hating everyone who has a religion I wont be able to reach them when I argue with them. I agree with what you wrote. I feel as bad about child sexual abuse as anyone. I just have to keep reminding my self that not all Christians or Muslims or Hindus and all the rest do that. A large amount do, but not all. Be well my friend, maybe I am just tired today. Hugs
