Jerimiah 11:11 is the only scripture in the book of "god" that holds any truth to life today.



Not sure about the only but, you may be on to something there...

We’re paying congress millions to do nothing. We’re paying Trump nothing to do everything.

It is what Jesus said that leads me to believe he existed. This, for example, is typical self aggrandizing cult leader assholery:

I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

That could have just as easily been said by Mohammad, Joseph Smith, Charles Manson, Jim Jones, David Korsh and countless other self centered cult leader assholes throughout time.

"O Muhammad, you are the messenger of God, and I am the angel Gabriel.

What, other than conditioning, leads you to believe that is the words of a false prophet and this is the words of a universe creating being?

If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters — yes, even their own life — such a person cannot be my disciple.

If I'm ignoring you it's because you're a fallacy impaired fool. You're simply not worthy of my attention, sorry about your luck.

I'm also aware that the writers, that we know began writing decades after his "death", may just have been using that far too common cult leader personality in their fiction. That is the existence vs fiction fence that I sit on.

Yes and you are probably aware, you’ve been here long enough, that Vapor and I tend to lock horns on this one occasionally, particularly when I have very little to do, like being in isolation for the next three months or so. :(

Your ego could be your greatest enemy.

If I were considering adopting a religion, other than the one I was baptized into but have since seen the futility of, I would visit Canada and have, what would probably be a fruitless debate, with Sheilah. Did I spell your name correctly? :)
