Blairlarson, is your first language English? Because I am having an extremely hard time following your arguments.

Aside from that, what proof do you have?

Proof does NOT include:

Scripture
Feelings
Faith
Visions
Belief

Proof DOES include:

Any empirical (measurable) and concrete evidence that can be scientificly studied.

The big I thing is that thing on the very first word you put down.


you don't know how to use the quote funtion, do you?

it's simple, copy words, paste words, highlight words, hit quote button. it's that simple.

And through repentance and the gospel we can go to heaven. So in the Long run we can Live in heaven with are families for ever and be happy.


and fairies will be your slaves forever and ever. it sounds good when put to paper and given a good speaker to say it, but it is still a feather, soft, but no mass.

And right now you sound like you are religious.


I learned a long time ago that the only way to argue with the religious is to use their own rhetoric against them.

It looks like that you do not like the Plan of Salvation. And it looks like the only reason that you hate it is because you do not understand it.

Because sounding Elitist is always the best course of action.

This is what I personally hate about religion. EVeryone in a religion, to some extent, believes that they and they alone have special knowledge. That everyone else is lesser to them because everyone else does not have this knowledge. And that it is their duty to share the special special knowledge. And if those they share it with do not accept? Well too bad, they're "lost".

Here's the big problem. Vary rarely do because care about why you think you're better than them. Your belief does not make you special, you thinking it makes your important or "saved" or anything else is elitist and irritating as hell.

I've spent 17 years in the church, and heard every lesson. it's not that I don't understand it, its that the only way this will end is to give up your free will. I hate it because I understand it.

the entire plan as follows:

1.get a body.
2.live according to the gospel.
3.go to place of first judgement after death (spirit paradise/ prison)
4.go to one of 4 places after 2nd judgement (celestial, terrestrial, telestial, outer darkness)
5.spend the rest of eternity in those places worshipping god, and (if you got priesthood) become a watcher over a planet without even a bit of notice for it. doing it because you love god.

I know all there is to know, but that isn't why I hate it. I hate it because it isn't true. I hate it because its promises are hollow, and the god nonexistient.

my challenge to you is to find one war before the year 1500 that isn't religiously motivated (mongol agenda doesn't count unfortunately).

let it be known that I'm not doing this to withstand your judgement. I'm doing this to show you that nothing is as it seems.

The Chinese Warring states period.

Well if you are here to show me that nothing is what it seems then wouldn't you be talking about how true God is.

On my iPod so I can't do quotes.

@larson- I've done nothing but explain to you how there is no god. The fact that you said the above statement blatantly shows you haven't been paying attention.

1 rare exception. Asia doesn't tend to have religious wars, but for every one war that doesn't involve religion, there are 300 that do, especially in Europe and the holy land. My point still stands: religion is bull crap, and god (even though he doesn't exist) is a jerk who loves watching people die in his name.

the choice was rigged from the very beginning to not benefit the players of god's game.
