    Just to point out, I was asked, or I wouldn't have said it.

    • My fault, he said I was calling him an idiot, so I asked about the IQ.

      I think 155 will qualify as 'not an idiot'.

      As for proving the IQ score, I think anyone who has read my posts should realize that I'm not bull****************ting,

      I really am that smart, obviously!

          Yeah, we've had the news on all day... some pretty disturbing scenes. Still, at least the USA has some idea of how to cope with this stuff, it could have been far worse if it had hit an impoverished region- like the tsunami did.

            I didn't for one second think you were bull****************ting, you seem intelligent, and well read. Just a little mislead in some areas, IMO.

                  You can barely grasp your own highly-complex belief system, to the point of calling yourself abstractly challenged.

                  Yet you can tell I'm misled in some areas.

                  Literalists.....so sure about other's problems (and our final destination), unable to grasp their own.

                  Thanks, this really expands my understanding of the pitfalls of your faith.

                  I give +1 for your honesty. But I'll stick with my own Deistic Gnosticism for now. And I still like Buddha better.

                    This is the stupidest thing I have ever read here. Really.

                    Do you know that besides the New Testament, there are only four times Jesus is mentioned within years of his supposed life? Nobody who met him, no local historian (or other) wrote of him, no city papers, no records, no friends or family, nothing during his life time.

                    And of the four later historians who wrote of him, there are doubts whether the Jesus stuff was real or added later. And you can't use the Bible as proof of what the Bible says.

                    You can believe in your fairy stories, you have that right, but come on, give your head a shake before you try to sell your crap here. There is almost zero historical information that Jesus was even around, let alone a son of some god.

                      • People go to church to pay god to like them. Awesome idea. Who else charges money for men to like them? Hmmm..Let me think. But it gives people comfort so leave em to it.

                          Chuck, the 'abstractly challenged' comment was a joke. However, it is true that I can barely grasp the enormity of it all- that's partly why I'm always reluctant to tell others what they should believe.

                          You are misled, because you clearly don't understand what it means to be a christian. Its not about blindly (and literally) following some book, its about a relationship with the living God. You don't have to become one of us (although of course I believe you should) it would just be nice if you could accept that we're not crazy.

                          If you read my posts, you'll see that I never said I was sure of your 'final destination', in fact I said the opposite- that I had no idea. Please don't put words in my mouth.

                            Thanks for your insightful contribution. Like I was saying before, you cannot blame christianity for atrocities like the inquisition- it was simply a convenient tool in the agendas of evil people. Unfortunately, it has been throughout its history, and so thats what people associate it with.

                            I'd encourage you to actually learn about the faith, before you start ripping into it.

                              Or the Crusades. Anyone remember the Aztecs, or the Incas? Adolf Hitler was a proud Christian. Christians are historically famous for killing off others who don't believe like they do.

                                Um, sure you can. It was the Christian LEADERS who did this.
