It doesn't. The problem is that dogma isn't just about religion since it also applies to monarchies as well. Although Atheists can be very intelligent. It doesn't mean they are all free thinkers. It seems that many Atheists move with any theory of science. What does that mean? It means that if science doesn't know it. They think it doesn't exist. The problem is that in dogma you have to agree with it. Many Atheists believe the Big bang is fact even though the scientific community doesn't agree with it and aren't sure of it. But many Atheists think it's fact. Another problem with it is that Atheists think they shouldn't have the burden of proof but that's being ignorant. You also have to make an argument to why God doesn't exist. Or any Deity for that matter. Science isn't bias to any religious belief. It's just there and it says it like it is. 50 years ago we thought it was okay for a woman to smoke and drink while being pregnant. But as we studied science more we found out it was a bad idea. A century ago we didn't have the cure for Polio. But then we found it. But it's not just about Atheists. The problem also applies to the religious because they live in the most obvious dogma. I mean the Abrahamic faiths believe it's a sin to eat shrimp. So the point of this stamp is that you can't generalize a group of being stupid. It just depends on the individual and how he or she does things.

Yeah this is one of the guys that turned me off from religion. Yeah Thanks Pat. But at least my belief in God isn't dead. Unless he wants to kill it now. I mean all he'll is pray for my death. Yeah because praying for someones death is very Christian.

I've been getting this a lot with both Atheists and the religious since they seem to misunderstand. So no I'm not an Atheist. But here's my case since I have many Atheist friends. So we look at a lot of people who are non-Atheists who say that Atheists are immoral. Well here's my response. I wouldn't say that since I've met a lot of good people who are Atheists and like I said I have friends. These people were among the nicest of people and treated me well. And they know right from wrong. But then Atheists also make this mistake. The idea behind this misconception, at least from my opinion. Is that since Atheists don't set a dogmatic standards towards themselves when it comes to morality. They don't say talk about sexuality like if it were something wrong. It just depends on the individual and how they put things. You can be moral with or without religion. I mean obviously we've seen immoral religious people. So there you go.

Yes I am a Deist. I am a free thinker. My own mind is my own church. Religion is a human invention that has been misused and abused through time. I believe in God not religion and God gave us the ability to reason.

So you know how many Christians talk about how the Old Testament's rituals don't count? Jesus calls bullshit on that. This quote is taken from the bible in the New Testament and the location is in the title. So the reason I mention this because Christians use "The Old Testament don't count" to justify eating Shrimp, working on Saturday, Wearing sweaters, Making oranges, Shaving, Getting Jesus Tattoos, and touching a piece of pork. All those things are punishable by death in the bible. And look this wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that they always go to Leviticus to justify hating gays. You can't have both. You can't say the old book doesn't count but justify your hate in the old book. You know Slavery at one point was being justified because it was in the bible. That's true as well. Slavery is never condemned in the bible. So I think 80% of the country should be executed for disobeying one law of Leviticus. All those things are punishable by death.

Read Left part, then Right part then the bottom. Okay?
We must respect other religions even as we respect our own.
Mere tolerance thereof is not enough.

Every religion has been presecuted for their beliefs, but does that make it right? Tolerance is not enough, we must learn to respect and learn about others and their beliefs. These actions CAN NOT go without notice. If you feel embarrassed that people of your religion have done something like this then GOOD! Feel embarassed BUT don't let it keep happening, STOP IT from continuing! As one wise person said "Evil can only truly win if the good does nothing to stop it." We are all letting evil win if we do nothing to stop it...

Thousands of people from all over the globe have pledged themselves to being part of the resolution against intolerance. By reading this, you, too, have become a part of the bigger picture — a grand portrait of tolerance, where you can be you and Tempest is free.

In the beginning the gods and I decided to create other beings. We debated on how they should act, how their mortality is handled, and in what conditions can they live. Each god was given an assignment on what to handle. Of course I gave everyone their duties and led the order of creation. The creation began with the formation of the Earth but was formless and empty.

El: Let there be light!!! It looks good. Now I will form darkness and it will be separate from the light. The light shall be called day and the Dark will be called night. We will create more as the days pass since it will set a precedent of time for our creation. Each day will repeat to create order.

Baal: Father, we must create land and water so there will be livable space for these beings. If you expect order then we must do this.

El: You are right my son. This will be done in the second day. Gather the other gods so we may create all of these living beings.

And so the first day passed. A very short day to be honest. Looking back at it I thought just creating light and darkness was just lazy. But it was the right thing to set precedent. Besides we weren't done.

So the second day came and it was a little bit more eventful.

El: Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water. The vault is to be separate from water under the vault from the water above it. And it is so. this will be called Sky. Baal I want you to pour the water with your storm clouds.

Ba'al Hadad: Let the water pour from the heavens and it shall provide drink and life. It will be clean and pure.

Okay I lied a bit. The first two days were boring. I mean Baal's a good kid but again we're not all powerful. We may be immortal but we don't have power over everything. The third day would come and we would begin to form life.

El: Now it's time to create the fruit of the Earth. Dagon, I want you to create grain and fertile crops. Nikkal-wa-Ib, I want you to create fruits and orchards.

Dagon: Let the land produce vegetation.

Nikkal-Wa-Ib: let the seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed that it will produce, according to their various kinds.

The fourth day came and my child Shapash was responsible of creating the sun and Shamayim would be responsible of creating the moon. As such I would have them both be in charge of the heavens as they would control these two lights. They would agree to share the day. One half will be ruled by the sun and the other half will be by the moon. Shachar and Shalim will of course be responsible for raising Dusk and Dawn.

The sixth day came and this is where we would finish off the creation. I would be responsible for creating the animals of the land, sea, and skies. It looked nice but we all decided to create one more set of beings. They would be called man. But that's for another day to tell.
So this is the part talking about the first version of creation. I wanted to talk about man in more specific detail since just talking about that part would not make sense in this version of creation. You know what I mean if you've read Genesis.

Seriously, it's all in the bible.

God hates a lot of things, and if you're going to protest one you need to follow all of them to not seem like a giant hypocrite.

It's funny though...all the anti-same sex marriage people are breaking several of these...

Maybe they just need to read their bible more.

"God gaves us free will, ergo it's pur own fault": Except that the Bible nor the Qu'ran put emphasis on free will. Hell, this excuse is so very recent, that, until a few centuries ago, the idea that God had absolute control over our lives was very popular.

"Its our fault; Adam and Eve's sin created evil, not God!": If you have read Genesis, you'll know this is bullshit (Hell, even Yahweh admits he created evil!). Likewise, at no point is the first sin ever considered a "Pandora's Box" situation.

"God is goodness incarnate! Evil is against his nature!":...have you even read the Bible? Yahweh is also considered to not be goodness incarnate until the NT and Qu'ran; in the OT, he is treated as a Lawful Neutral agent.

"Your're putting everything out of context!": Considering I actually bother to read the Bible/Qu'ran, while you only cherry pick passages your pastor dictates...

"He died for your sins! You should be grateful!":

1- His sacrifice was pointless, He only rescued saints from Sheol; everyone else still ends uo there after death, and only in Revelation are the faithful saved.

2- Nobody asked Jesus to die horribly. Yahweh supposedly does not need sacrifices, so it was all a display of disgusting sadism.

Why am I supposed to feel guilt tripped again?
In response to the usual stupidity. I probably already did this before. Don't care.
