  1. I’d post, but I’m pretty sure I’m not a “frien”, not that I have any idea what a “frien” is. Seriously, 17 words and you couldn’t review them before posting?

  3. Mohandas Gandhi once said, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

    For myself, I have little problem with the values that Jesus reportedly portrayed (humility, tolerance), but I do take issue with the idea that anyone could literally be the son of some god. Heck, I don’t even believe in gods, much less sons of gods.

    Anyway, I’ve put up a longer post relatively recently, on why the Apostles’ Creed is no longer credible in this day and age and thus, why I am not a Christian.

  4. Anyone can call themselves Chritians, Muslim think you are Chritian because you live in the West.

    A Christian is a follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

    Gandhi thought the Bitish were Christian, well they were that plu something else.

  5. A Christian is a follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ.
    So if I believe in love and forgiveness, charity and kindness to strangers, I am automagically Christian, even if I don’t believe in God, Christ, Heaven, Hell, or the soul? Or even if I was jewish or hindu or buddhist or rosicrucian?

    • Yep, that’s a critical point that dawkinswatch here is completely ignorant of… The things that Jesus supposedly taught are all quite unremarkable, and many people have said similar things throughout history. It’s nothing more than being altruistic.

      The parts that make sensible people non-Christian, IMO, are numerous.

      For example, the recognition that virgin birth (parthenogenesis) simply can’t produce a male child, even if it parthenogenesis had ever been observed in any mammal species.

      But there are a long list of beliefs central to Christianity that simply make no sense in a world free from superstition.

  6. I would have more respect for you if you salid who said the things Jesus saud before he did.

    As for the virgin birth, it is easy to collapse you whole belifs because I have asked you to show me a false prophecy in the pld testament and I am still waiting.

    One of the prophecies is behold a virgin will give birth.

    What about the crucfiction prophecies, were they fulfilled?

    • Dude, TURN ON YOUR SPELL CHECKER!

      And so what about a prophesy about a virgin birth – all that proves is that some men of that time period were gullible into believing a pregnant woman lying about having pre-marital intercourse. I’d lie to if the alternative was death by stoning.

      So please, learn to use spell-checker, and don’t be so gullible.

      • Are you saying that the prophecy was not given before the event?

  7. No, I’m talking about self-fulfilling prophesies. Let me re-comment, since you’re too dense to understand.

    • Idiot,
      Believing that something is going to happen makes you gullible when someone pretends it happened.
