@Sapporo: If most Christians were like @Maddie, the world would be a much better place.
The world is exactly like Maddie. 30,000 Christian sects all spouting their own version of the bible and cannon of beliefs. Maddie is just one more in a long line of amorphous goop from which mushrooms grow.
I really could not disagree more. "Everyone has their own reality." "Life is subjective." I do not see anything at all she has asserted as positive or useful. It's all this bland, wishy-washy, "you believe what you want to believe and I will believe what I want to believe." This is what the Christians say when they want you to ignore their idiotic beliefs. "I have respect for all beliefs." "If you ignore and pretend to respect my idiotic beliefs, I will pretend to ignore and respect yours too."
I would have more respect for a Hell Fire and Brimstone preacher with absolute convictions. At least they are upfront and honest about their beliefs.
There are 30,000 denominations because Martin Luther as a teacher, taught that the Bible is the only teaching authority. Unfortunately, even though it’s verifiable that Sola Scriptura is a massive logical loop/ verifiable false paradox people just can’t see it.
By the way I missed you guys! I’ve been up to no good. How are you all doing!?
Sorry for a long post. I have a bad habit of rainting. Besides, it helps to cover as many bases as possible, especially after ALL those responses in this thread.
If I never welcomed you, then …
Now for the meat …
If I posted anything that makes it seem as if I am trying to change your mind, then I apologize. That is not my intention. My intention is argue against the ideology of any and all religions. To me, all religions are Pure Evil. All religion should be lobotomized and utterly eradicated from the psyche of the entire human species. Thus, the human species can ascend to where it is meant to ascend. We need to quit groveling on our knees, kissing the ass of an Illusory Sky Faerie, Bewitched Lich Virgin, Conjured Comical Spook, and a thieving, murdering, child-raping Wannabe Warlord.
In my wholly and honest opinion, religion no longer has any place in today's, mostly, civilized society. And this is from the home page of my WWW site.

I am positively sure of the 2nd and 3rd ones, but ain't so sure about the first.

I thought maddie was a guy...I should pay more attention...but it's hard sometimes to do that.
@doG "Maddie was a guy." I don't think it mattered. It all depended on how you looked at her. Gender is a very subjective and we all have both male and female DNA and hormones. So when you say "guy" what do you really mean. You don't need to be born with a set of balls to identify as male and even if you are born that way you could still be female. It's all subjective.
