And he has the same story as Horus. Christianity is just the continuation of the Ancient Egyptian cult of the Sun God Horus. Jesus is a SUN God. There's nothing wrong with worshiping the sun! I do too! I just wish Christians would realize this...

    Where you ever "A Theist" before you became Atheist? If you were, could you explain the change in your thinking that brought you to the point of declaration that God doesn't exist. To the other Atheists who doesn't fit in this category of ever being a Theist, your answers are also welcome. This is your opportunity to tell your story from your point of view, and explain the logic of your thinking. Fascist A**kicker asked: "Can I ask you did you become a theist based on evidence,or other reasons?" Q answered: "As a kid, I went to church and read about God from illustrated Bible stories. I was neither a theist or an atheist because God was not a reality to me, and I didn't know whether God existed or not. Growing up, I had a hot temper and my primary language outside of English was profanity. In the summer of 1987, at the age of 16 (between my Junior and Senior year in High School), I enrolled in a school called "The International Foundation of Microbiology", that actually paid the students minimum wage ($3.35/HR) to take biology classes. Imagine that! A school that PAYS you to take classes! The school was set up in a large room with long tables where groups of students would sit to perform experiments.

I was curious about what I was reading and asked a lot of questions about what was in the Bible such as, the book of Revelation, the Rapture, Heaven, Hell, and what did "Born Again" mean. His answers were both fascinating and enlightening. Long story short, I didn't receive Christ right there, but because I was curious with an open mind, I learned things that was in the Bible that I had never heard before. The guy had big Bible comic books and little Bible comic books called "Chick" tracts. One of the "Chick" tracts was about Hell. The title of the book was: "Hi There". http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0076... In short, a man named Charlie died and went to Hell. I read the book and all of the Bible references in the book and was shocked to find them in the Bible (because I went to church). After reading the book, and checking out the references, I accepted the reality of Hell as a possibility, but I still did not accept Christ at that time (but was seriously conside considering it). At the time, this is the logic I was faced with: Death, I KNOW is real, and I know that I am not born again and could die at ANY time. If I die and I haven't been born again, I will go to Hell if it is real. If Hell is real, I will experience burning pain ceaselessly - FOREVER! Do I like the burning pain of a bee sting or of fire? NO! Do I want to burn forever? NO! So, to avoid Hell and go to Heaven, all I have to do is become Born Again. Whether Hell is real or not, I can die right now. So why risk going to Hell when I can avoid it by becoming Born Again? I couldn't confirm whether Hell was real or not. All I knew was that death WAS real. And I didn't know whether Hell was on the other side. What I was certain of was that I could die at any moment, and that I could only be Born Again while alive. To me, this wasn't about religion or God, it was about the fact that that I saw myself in immediate danger and I had one option to do something about it to get out of it and I would be a fool turn that option down. An Eternity in the Lake of Fire? No Thanks! So, on my bicycle in a park, I followed the instructions on the last page and prayed the "Sinners Prayer" to accept Jesus as God, to accept that He became human and shed His blood on the cross for my sins, to ask Him to forgive me of all my sins, and to ask Him as God to come into my heart and become Born Again. Before I prayed that sinners prayer, I was only concerned about avoiding Hell. I didn't know what would happen after I prayed it. I wasn't expecting what happened to me. Like I said before, I was neither a theist or an atheist because God was not a reality to me, and I didn't know whether God existed or not. But after I said that prayer, I knew that God existed, because He immediately did everything I asked for (according to the instructions in the book) and I literally experienced God physically. I felt His physical Being come within me, and literally cleanse me from all sin (which f

    Does their moral compass not work any more? How can they justify eternal torment for anyone for any reason? How could they love and embrace any being that would send anyone to Hell for any reason? BQ: Why don't Christians see the absurdity in asserting that people "choose" Hell for themselves?

And as ian mcewan said "There is a lot of unnecessary suffering caused by people either having to leave their homeland to go and die or people having to criminalise near family and friends.” I sadly agree so far we have a majority rule for ......which begs the question, why do our soceity and governments not listen thats the stupid part tho professor vostokov (interesting name btw) its really not proffitible for government, the nhs spends billions trying to keep peopel alive, when they want to die, keeping them on machines, on medicines that cost billions every year, therapies etc etc trying not to sound hard here, but financially, its really not benefitial for soceity politically and morally its seen as positive to have more and more money put in to finding ways to keep ius alive, even if we want to die but financially, and actual ethics, its not at all foenix im really sorry to hear about your dog, thats terrible bas*ard should be shot as well majority still for so far.... again, when wil the governments listen to what the people want and the worlds a better place for your survivng mama i mean that haha, thats fine black holes, not a bother to me when peopel end on a q, life is filled with questions so its not a surprise i often think the same thing myself, its a shame we have the respect for animals, but not for ourselves but, somtimes, its hard to know whether its respect we have for them, or whether we see them as lower and thats why we allow ourselves to do it "For people who just want to end their lives because they feel sorry for themselves, NO it should not be allowed" i think most of us agree with you there heather its a different thing to feel suicidal but be completely physically healthy otherwise than to have a horrible illness that debilitates life so much so you are not relaly living it many brilliant, and honest answers i respect that, thanks everyone it looks like a majority vote for assisted death all we can do now is make governments listen......and we do have that power!!! to all those with personal stories and expereinces, thanks for sharing them with us, and im sorry, i truly am, for what you and those you love have had to expereince we can only hope it doesnt stay that way for everyone

She says she froze and she did not tell her husband until she woke up crying in the middle of the night. Now her husband is mad with her and thinks that she must have liked it.

    I was married to the pure devil for 9 yrs and we had 3 kids together. She left me after yrs of cheating, lying, cussing me and belittleing me everyday. We had told each other several times we were only together for the sake of the kids. She left me for another man. That was 9 yrs ago. Every since the divorce I got the kids every weekend from Fri to Sun. Usually because the EX was hitting the bars and going out with her BF but I didn't mind because I wanted to see my kids. Years went by and I started dating again. About 2 months into the relationship my EX tells me that the kids didn't like what my GF did or said so eventually the relationship ended. I was alone again. Worked all week and spent the weekends with my kids. This happened twice. So I assumed I was doomed to spend my life alone until the kids were out on their own. After the divorce I would go camping, fishing, hunting, yard saleing or whatever with the kids, my EX and her BF. We spent holidays together and several times I would just go to their house and spend the evening with the kids. About 4 yrs ago I met another woman and fell madly in love with her. About 3 months in my EX started her crap again but I never ended the relationship. She would send nasty emails to my GF telling her that I would never marry her, and that I wanted things to go back to the way they were before I met her. And how the kids hated her. She called her a liar, a troublemaker and told her how sad it was that she had to give me ultimatives or I would leave her. This went on for about a year. Until I finally got married. My wife finally told my EX to leave her alone and stay out of our life and if she didn't stop then she would proceed with harassment and slandor charges against her. My EX stopped. But what an impact this situation has on the kids relationship with my wife. When I started seeing my wife I still got the kids every weekend. We even kept the kids on our wedding night. We barely go out on the weekends without the kids. My wife and I wont go away for the weekend unless my EX has plans for the kids for that weekend which is usually once a year. My kids are 15 and 18. I feel I spend enough time with my wife alone during the week after work in the evening. So my weekends should be with my kids. She will ask me to go out to dinner and leave the kids here for a few hours and I always back out at the last minute. We never go bowling or to the movies. We sit home and watch my kids play video games or watch what the kids want to watch on TV. There is no romance between us and our sex life is close to nothing. I have lost the desire and interest not in my wife but in sex. I am 46 she is 45. So how can I divide my time between my wife and my kids? And how can I avoid my EX starting her crap of telling the kids that my new wife is more important than them?
