• Mission Trip Question?

    There is one thing which is of the utmost importance. You must have a letter from the Guatemalan government welcoming you there. Otherwise you are an illegal, subject to their laws. As for particular items that you need to pack, your mission leaders will tell you.

  • How did the idea of believe of god started to happen?

    All religions were invented by humans. All gods are myths. In ancient times people were very afraid of storms and earthquakes and volcanoes and many things. They thought the gods or the spirits of the ancestors might help them, if they worshiped and sacrificed. So people invented the idea of gods. Gods could get angry and kill whenever they... show more
    All religions were invented by humans. All gods are myths. In ancient times people were very afraid of storms and earthquakes and volcanoes and many things. They thought the gods or the spirits of the ancestors might help them, if they worshiped and sacrificed. So people invented the idea of gods. Gods could get angry and kill whenever they wanted. Gods could give a good harvest, or they could cause famine. These stories helped people understand the good and bad actions of humans, and the random acts of nature. Then a few people made religion so that certain individuals could gain wealth and power. "Give money to our temple (or whatever building) or we'll tell everyone you're doing witchcraft and you'll burn." Just like paying protection money to the mafia. And it's been building ever since. Finally in the 21st century, in the West, people can say they're Atheist, Humanist or Agnostic. This is wonderful. Freedom is wonderful. Kindness, love and compassion come from the human mind. Live your life now, with love and compassion.

  • Why is Christianity so obsessed with sheep and lambs?

    ".. being fleeced by religion.." Yes, indeed. Gods and religions were invented by people, so that a few individuals could gain wealth and power. And so that the poor would 'stay in their place.'

  • Since Protestants created their own religion, does God approve?

    No. The idea of gods was invented by people. Gods don't actually exist. Non existent things cannot approve or disapprove of anything.

  • If there is no god then who wrote the bible?

    The bible was written by humans. All so-called 'holy' books were written by humans, for human purposes. The purpose is usually so a few people can gain more and more wealth and power.

  • Why don't people say keep "mas" in Christmas also? What does the "mas" mean?

    Christmas means the Mass of Christ, mass being the church service where a believer would take bread and wine, to represent the body and blood of Christ.

While I'm here, would you like to know what Noel means? It's translated as Christmas, but it's from the ancient Galois, (old French) 'noio hel' which means 'new sun.' So French speakers get to acknowledge that the seasonal celebration is actually about the winter solstice.

  • What kind of personality turns their back on their Creator? How can someone be ungrateful for having been given the chance at life?

    I exist because my parents weren't using birth control. I exist because of nature and science. The natural, biological world is about reproduction. But Nature does not know me, or you or anyone. Nature has no brain and cannot receive graciousness.

    No. Christmas celebrations are essentially Pagan celebrations. Many religions celebrate around this time due to the winter solstice.

Remember, too, that the old testament says not to hammer gold and silver to the tree, as the Pagans do. Jeremiah 10, 1 - 5. So bring on those jingle bells.

SOL INVICTUS, The Unconquered Sun refers to the winter solstice, which is why many modern day religions celebrate at the time of solstice. The reason for the season is axial tilt. Atheists don't mock god. Do you William, mock Odin or Thor, or Quetzalcoatl? No. You don't mock something that doesn't exist!
