In anticipation of Mr. Phelps interpreting Hurricane Katrina as divine retribution for New Orleans' sinful ways and starting a "God Hates New Orleans" website, someone beat him to the punch by registering the domain name"godhatesneworleans.com" before he could get his grubby hands on it. If you click on it, you get a brief screen telling you that God does NOT hate New Orleans, and then you're forwarded to a Red Cross donation site.

Tom - with all due respect to your beliefs - do you have any children? Did you have to warn them not to touch the stove because it was hot? When they went ahead and touched the stove anyway what did you do? Did you throw them in the oven to burn forever because they disobeyed you? Or did you forgive them, fix the burn and warn them not to do it again?

Don't you think that God loves you and all sinners the same way you love your children? The God I believe in does. I'm sorry the God you believe in doesn't.

Poor Tom. He supports a god who believes in torture, and not just Saddam Hussein type torture that lasts a few months then you die, but goes on forever- AND HE THINKS THIS IS MORAL. No, if such a god exists, people are more moral than god. I don't believe that and I'm surprised that Tom should want me to believe that. In fact, I don't believe he does, when he examines the consequences of his beliefs. But if he does, in full knowledge of the implications (which he has now), he's worse than a moral leper.

If such a god exists, it is exactly the same as Satan (come to think of it, who created Satan? Knowing EXACTLY what Satan was going to do?)

If you believe such a god exists, you are morally obliged to oppose such a being. If you don't oppose it, you no better than those who support any other tyrant, criminal, torturer, murderer, or parker-on-double-yellow-lines.

Oh, and BTW Tom, you DON'T know you are going to heaven. Only god knows that, and of course has known it since infinite time before the creation of the universe. You may believe you are, but you might have done something (or not done something) that you've forgotten about, or do something before you die, and find yourself in the wrong queue. Many are cold but few are frozen, not all who cry lawdy lawdy will be shaved.

Unfortunately saying we know something because the bible says so only works if you believe the bible is truth. It is all a question of faith. As to whether the forum ever makes jokes at the expense of other religions I think it almost certanly has and does. This doesn't always mean that the religion or beliefs are being ridiculed.

Faith is faith, not certainty. If faith were certainty, it would not be faith.

I find it interesting that when people say they know they're going to heaven, they always say it with a touch of pride. Isn't pride one of the Seven Deadly Sins?

Tom, did you paste that site in here to demonstrate 'forever'?

"Remember when I'm up there I will helping Jesus who to send to hell to burn forever." Tom Hamilton

When I was a girl being reared in a devout Christian home I heard my father and a guest speak about the transgressions of a man they knew who was non-Christian.

One of them said, I just tell myself: Just you wait!

And they laughed comfortably.

If you, Tom - or my father and his friend - really, truly believe what you say you believe, it would be an outrage to feel joyful that someone else is going to burn in hell. That is not Christian in any sense that I have any understanding of.

As for hell, I do NOT believe in that kind of thing. Extinguishment I can understand but we have an inborn knowledge that torture (cruelty) is obscene. The Created is not better than its Creator, so if WE know cruelty is wrong, then we know that the Creator would not indulge in it, is not capable of it.

Now, don't go away with your feelings hurt, thinking that we are ridiculing you or your belief. If the other posters are coming from the same place as I, we are simply trying to help you to stop and think.

God talks to Moses through the burning bush, says go to Pharaoh and tell him "Let my people go!". Moses does that. Pharaoh says no. So God sends plagues. Moses says again, "Let my People go!". God hardens Pharaoh's heart so he says no again. So God can send more plagues.

Over a period of several weeks I listened to an audio CD made by a priest, Richard Rohr. Anybody ever heard of him? I hadn't. Anyway he says that the Old Testament stories of God and Man rely heavily on their own culture and their understanding of how things should be done, and that they have very little to do with God.

Makes one wonder whether anyone should ever say that is how things are. I know that my understanding is evolving- and that doesn't even imply that my understanding today is better than it was yesterday- just different. Tomorrow it may be different again.

That was fun, DMcG. Made me stop and think and I did fine until the very last question when me logic filed me.

"The fact that you progressed through this activity being hit only once and biting no bullets suggests that your beliefs about God are well thought out and almost entirely internally consistent.

"The direct hit you suffered occurred because one set of your answers implied a logical contradiction. At the bottom of this page, we have reproduced the analysis of your direct hit. You would have bitten bullets had you responded in ways that required that you held views that most people would have found strange, incredible or unpalatable. However, this did not occur which means that despite the direct hit you qualify for our second highest award. A good achievement!"

Well...I got perfect score and "The Medal of Honor" in logic....7.7% of those who took the test.

As they say, it says little about 'truth', but only tests 'consistency'.....and I am a BIG fan of that.

Interesting link. I took zero hits, but I also don't have much belief in god or any form of absolute morality, or of the justification of actions based on unsupported convictions, so I don't see any other path I could logically have taken through the questions.

That should be 1 direct hit and bit 2 bullets. Also a near miss.

I'm a bit disappointed in my result. I pride myself on my illogic.

It's ok....question 17 by itself is tricky. I can even find ways to quibble with them on their analysis. After about 7-8, I kinda knew what they expected, so I found it easy to resolve any 'doubts' I had.

Like most of these things, it doesn't prove much, but it makes you think......briefly.

Battleground God reports:

Battleground Analysis

Congratulations!

You have been awarded the TPM medal of honour! This is our highest award for outstanding service on the intellectual battleground.

The fact that you progressed through this activity neither being hit nor biting a bullet suggests that your beliefs about God are internally consistent and very well thought out.

A direct hit would have occurred had you answered in a way that implied a logical contradiction. You would have bitten bullets had you responded in ways that required that you held views that most people would have found strange, incredible or unpalatable. However, you avoided both these fates - and in doing so qualify for our highest award. A fine achievement!

He may. Look at how many ants there are on Earth. They OUTWEIGH humanity! Now, 99.8% of them are sterile females, the rest(ha) are breeding straights. Keeping the population going, with the aforementioned neuter females doing all the work. Hmmm.

What God certainly loves is beetles. There are more varieties of those than the rest of lifeforms put together. Remember, and pause before you step on one.

I remembered these statistics, and I didn't invent them.

In a shorter version of what Tom wrote - he says that the Earth and sky will burn - well, one day they will. All the planets in the solar system will eventually burnas the sun gets hotter before she dies out resucks in the soalr energy the

BANG

- Suddenly 'god' has recreated life - something else which Tom quotes.

I believe the Earth and the sky will burn, in ohh about 50 billion years from now. I'm just not sure about the angels though etc. And perhaps if we do find a way to travel in space - the good (as in clever) will find us a new home to live - a new planet up in the heavens (a once popular saying to mean sky)! Anyone who is nasty and condemned i.e. rapists, murderers etc would most likely be left to die on a dying planet due to who really wants violent criminals on their space ship.

I'm not having a go at christians, and I wish them well in their faith, some quotes of the bible I believe also. I suppose it just depends on which way you look at it.

Just to put another spanner in the works - The description of god and followers have eternal life/light is not wholly different from the budhist ideal of reincarnation. You have reached nirvana, when you have no more lessons to be learnt, that is judged by ations.

Interpretations have alot to answer for too, and scripture and language has changed somewhat over the last few millenia. Also just one worng translated word could easily doom a religion whether it be - Islamic, Jewish or Christian etc.

I've just had an e-mail from God. He's not happy about this thread and its smacked bums all round when he gets hold of you lot.

And stop making fun of his beetle collection. Show a bit of reverence.
