5th December 2009

“Personally, I don't care if you worship Jesus, Yahweh, Buddha or Allah – they're all equally ridiculous but, in a free society, you can worship the Jolly Green Giant for all the rest of us care – but don't assume that you're also going to be immune from criticism, ridicule and scorn.”

    Ian O’Doherty,
    What the hell youre campaigning worshipping the Jolly Green Giant.Do you have any knowledge of sponsoring that.Do you think that god is just a simple ordinary entity without deep thought, searching, thinking analysing & believing.Do yu think one can simply decide who is the true god.

    Ian o,doherty if you don’t care why bother to post anything in here. as for criticism and all the other stuff . that is all it is.I personally will accept that sort of foolishness from any person that don’t believe in the topic they talking about.to me its very funny for a person to be so dead set against a god they don’t feel exists to begin with. BUT AS FOR THE RIDICULE AND CRITICISM BRING IT ON. IT COULD NEVER COME CLOSE TO WHAT OUR SAVIOR ENCOUNTERED. WHY SHOULD I BE IMMUNED.

  7. The Heretic Says:

    May the Flying Spaghetti Monster bless us all with his noodly appendages. Pesto be upon him. (Solemn reverence here.)

  8. tech Says:

    Come on now everybody knows the Flying Spaghetti Monster isn’t for real.

  9. tech Says:

    Well may be to Heretic he is. lol

  10. tech Says:

    WHAT ABOUT YOU IAN DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE SPAGHETTI MONSTER? LOL

  11. PEB Says:

    The reason for the season? Type the words ‘pagan’ and ‘christmas’ together in google and check your facts before posting here.

  12. tech Says:

    ???????????????????WHAT PEB? FACTS.THE REASON FOR THE SEASON IS JESUS CHRIST NOT CHRISTMAS. THE ATHEIST IS AS CLOSE TO PAGAN AS YOU CAN GET.

  13. PEB Says:

    Tech. Are you actually a person or a bizarre christian Turin test gone horribly wrong?
    I would be happy to be called a pagan thank you. Although maybe not in your definition.

  14. JMac Says:

    Amen Ian. Great quote. As for Tech lets remember what the season is about – commericalism.

  15. JMac Says:

    But that is something organized religion is about – commercial success so it is appropriate in a way.

    Like I said the other day:

    Can anyone out there please show me anywhere on Earth; or Universe for that matter, where there may be some kind of true evidence that a god said or wrote anything? I am just looking for some evidence where Humans have not had a lead roll as compilers of words; as they tend to stick their thumb on the scale of truth just a little bit to make their story a bit more believable, it seems. Is there any rock solid physical proof where a god wrote or made something? Today’s preachers seem to shop their Human written – reference books only fill the collection plates and hook the clueless or witless.

    Hi John,
    Theres tons of evidence out there on gods existence if youre honestly looking for.For the final or the end of the human generation that is at our time god does not present its proof of its existence as straightforward as you want it to be like writings on solid rocks whatsoever.That kind of proof is suitable for our very older generations where humans is stone hearted and use little of their sense.Our generation are made up of soft sensible hearted human being,that is why god presents its proofs on a humanlike manner, that is through a messenger.But that does not stops there,there are follow ups.One must analyse,wonder, weigh,think what is conveyed by gods messenger.Is it logic or in line with scientific proofs,is it true,does it contradicts.After all these questions are answered and found to be viable, then the belief or faith comes in.One true source of gods evidence of existence is the holy Qoran.Read it and understand it first.Don’t hear what other scholars negative remarks of its contents have to say.Believe me what is contained in it is all true and it will hold your confidence from the heart .

    If you truly use logic over emotion, there can only be one outcome.

  19. John Says:

    solomon:

    Was not the qoran writen by man?

  20. solomon Says:

    Hi John,
    You must have been misunderstood on the origin of the Qoran.The original source of the Qoran is from Allah, the God himself.It is in the form of thoughts or wahyu poured into the hearts of the messenger Prophet Mohammad through the intermediator the angel Gibrail.These thoughts or wahyu is then dictated by Mohammad to scholars who then wrote it in the form of surah or verses & from time to time arranged and compiled into the final Qoran.
