“A lot of people misread their rights. They think that freedom of religion means that they can do anything in the name of religion, or that human rights means that they can act however they want against others.”

    Well put.

    Hello Solomon, Well if I had the ability to create a talking table, I would not give it a reason to deny that I built it. First I would show it that I built it. Second, I would stay right there in the open for him to see me. I would not lurk in the shadows. I would not appear to be non-existent. I would not give it a reason to think I am not real. I would give it factual evidence to see that I am here and willing to help it, even if it slips and makes mistakes. I would not threaten to send it into the fiery pits of some kind of hell for disagreeing with me. You see Solomon, your god fails miserably in all of these things. He has shown absolutely no more evidence than any other god that he is, or ever was real and not simply made up by weaklings looking for magical answers to everyday questions.

    You use the same pathetic responses that many Christians use, but you absolutely NEVER offer any REAL evidence. There can be only one reason for that. This foolishness about opening one’s heart is irrelevant and meaningless. Stating that it was written in some wonderfully crafted old book, so it must be so; is utter nonsense. Stop talking in circles and produce evidence. That is where the real truth lies. If you cannot do that, then kindly stop wasting my time.

    It is a foolish person who believes without reason. And without hard evidence, there is no reason.

    Dear Holysmokes,
    First hear what your beautiful talking table have to say.” What have I said earlier? Can somebody refresh my memory? Oh my…I may have slipped my tounge..Can somebody tell me how I happen to be here? I can feel hands sandpapering my top & apply shellac on my legs. Hey you Mr. Cat, can you come over for a while…Are you real? Can you see some hands assembling your head, cover you with fur, fit your legs?” Then Mr. Cat answers..” Whats the fuss are you babbling about Mr Table? Hands or no hands does not make us different. Are’nt we both have our masters. Let them do their business. As long as I’am alive, can eat & play, I’am already thankful for that”. I hope the Table & Cat story will open your heart.

    There is no permissive right to practice any religion outside the confines of your own self. Freedom of religion does not bestow a right to force or even argue with any other person for acceptance and practice that which is held by one’s self whether by law or social custom.

  5. solomon Says:

    Dear Magsk,

    I’am not talking about force or even argument for acceptance or practice of religion. We are discussing or forwarding views, comparing ideas so that the viewers is not being deceit by false thoughts or informations. If you are the man of truth why don’t you pose the same questions to the Atheists. Why do you indirectly pose it to the religion groups?

    Huh?

  7. Holysmokes Says:

    Solomon, you obviously made no attempt to read my last post. As such, do you have any idea how ridiculous you sound? If you had read it, you would instantly realize that I would make myself completely known to my creation. Do me a favor, if you are going to ignore my posts, then please don’t address any of your responses my way. Without evidence, you have no case.

  8. Susan Ingram Says:

    I would accept this quote as an accurate observation.

  9. CaptainZero1969 Says:

    I concur. A good example is when parents will let their child die rather than seek medical help because they are certain that their god isn’t going to let their little one die. Governments are getting much more aggressive in punishing these people, thank goodness.

    Today in the Religion of Pieces:

    “Terror attack kills 40 at Pakistan volleyball match”

    You know, every day I look and I have yet to find a recent bomber that isn’t a member of Mohammad’s faith (Pieces be upon him). This faith tradition is still in its adolescence. Christianity was, at this point in its development, just as violent, though they didn’t have access to high explosives.

    I’ve just been reading about Nyamko Sabuni. She has some very forward thinking ideas and opinions on religion (especially Islam). The world could do with more politicians like her.

  11. Susan Ingram Says:

    I can’t see our political parties ever allowing a politician like Nyamko Sabuni to rise up, our political class is to full of jobsworth’s and cronies. I also don’t think the public are capable of voting for the likes of her, to full of racist’s. An Immigrant, Black, Female,Muslim politician who talks sense. Not in my life time, not in my country, alas.

    Hell CapainZero1969; the blood that’s now blessing the sacred hands of the great allah be now 75 plus 60 wounded and most likely counting according to CNN’s latest.

    Don’t you just love the death cults? ‘Kind of makes me want to run right out and become a full bloody member [in crime]. Praise be to the dollar!

  13. solomon Says:

    To all the atheist,
    All you can do is spread the same old ‘labelling Muslim as terrorist’ after all attempt fail to confuse the viewers.
    Well Holysmokes,
    Ready to comment on the ‘Table & Cat’ storey which you termed as rediculous? Your lots just don’t have the idea how to challenge truth and to hell you will succeed.The only one whose wasting their time are the unbelievers. Its better that they do something else worth while rather than confusing others & themselves.
    For CaptainZero1969,
    You are damned silly citing a lousy example. Whats holding one to seek medical help in times of need? Thats part of ones effort to get well. No religion in the world prohibits that.

  14. solomon Says:

    Dear Susan Ingram,
    As most of the Atheist do, you are only guessing.

  15. Susan Ingram Says:

    Sol – I have no problem with guessing, I have no fear of the unknown. I’ll take my best guess and stick with it until proven wrong.

  16. solomon Says:

    Dear Susan Ingram,
    No amounts of guessing will benefit you when you see the fires of hell right in front of you.
