I officially resigned from the company I formed and built, yesterday. I did so because the religious fool who has been cheating and lying from day dot managed to look me in the eye whilst he was lying -- something he was never able to do until yesterday. I'm very happy to report that he will gain an extra 10% of shares and company profits. He will continue to go to church every Friday (I'm in the Middle East) and be the 'pillar' of the local Christian community that he is. I will return to Canada being just about the 'wealthiest' man you will ever know or hear of!!! See you all on December 10th, and God bless my ex-financial director. :lol: What a bunch of 'king hypocrites you lot are!! Get thee behind me you scum sucking evil wuckfits!

I know 3 people who went to jail for beating and threatening to kill their wives. One believes in God, and the other two are atheists. It doesn't matter what your religion (whether atheist or theist), "loving your neighbour as yourself" is how we work together to make our world better. If you view God as love, then how is that going to cause you to beat your wife? It you thought God was watching you, you might think twice about laying down the beats.

I am sorry to hear about your shady boss. Hypocrisy, IMHO, was what gives Christians such a bad name. Isn't people like that (the Pharisees) that Jesus was always calling religious hypocrites?

Good luck, Born_again. May God bless you in the future. :flappingangel:

Of course everyone in jail who says they're religious must be telling the truth, being upstanding citizens and all. I'm sure they figure they look better in front of a judge saying they're religious the same way Bush says God told him to invade Iraq to try to make himself look better.

Thank you for your time, recedingglacier, but let's be clear right now, he was NOT my boss, he was my inferior! I will not be associated with filthy evil pucks in my life. He will go to jail and I will soon be working 6 months in Thailand, resting 6 months p/a in B.C.. See you all in December.

Sorry about that. That was a slip up on my part. :oops:

What exactly are "god like" abilities?? if you can describe the abilities god posess's it would paint a better picture of what exactly is being argued here.


If you look at where we were 100 million years ago and where we are today, 100 million years down the road could be unimaginable... creating life would be no big deal as we're almost there now, but we'll probably blow ourselves up before getting the chance. An evil race wouldn't last as long as a "good" race because of course if everyone's a murderer your not going to last long,and evil is self collapsing when the majority, so theoretically the oldest living thing in the universe would probably be on the side of good. Something godlike would probably have unimaginable wisdom which comes with experience, and would probably be able to control energy that would be capable of almost anything... seems kinda godlike to me, but we probably couldn't imagine 1000 years down the road, never mind millions.

If when he goes to church, they tell him to cheat and lie to your face, then I'd blame it on his religion, but I'm guessing the guys just a dick... anyone can go to church or say they're religious, but talk is cheap... careful who you blame.

Some people's idea of honesty is not based on what they know to be true, but what they think they can get you to believe. Sometimes these people discover that you don't have to die to go to hell.
Denial is based on one very specific desire – for something to not be true.

Really? Why do you think the Pope booted Henry VIII out of the Roman Catholic Church? It's because Henry made himself the head of the church of England, so that he could divorce Catherine of Aragon to marry Anne Boleyn. Basic history.

Edited post to clarify the question. When have we ever been called the 'Western Christian Civilization"?
