Quote# 50021

[how do you [Christians] know, or what evidence do you have that you are not the one being tricked into following a false religion?]

I use to ask myself that same question until I stumbled onto Isaiah 41 and other chapters where God challenges all gods to proove themselves through prophecy 'so that we may know that you are gods.' All other religions do not have prophecies (esp. long range prophecies) like the bible. This is how you distinguish the True God from counterfeits.

Um... Every religion has its prophecies. Not just yours, and some are older than yours.

I would like to know from whence you get your information.

10/18/2008 6:52:57 PM



Oh, Wikipedia, never mind.

Not very familiar with other religions, are ya?

Judging by this post this is the same sugarhitman that used to post over at either IIDB or ChristianForums, or both. Been a while since I've seen him. Either way, he's an idiot of the highest grade.

So you believe your book because your book said to check your book's prophecies against events in your book. Jeenius.

aaa

Nostradamus?

a mind far far away

Actually, most religions have the prophetic role in them. Of course, I don't expect a fundie, however, to have actually studied other religions. Ignorance is NOT bliss.

LET'S DO THAT RIGHT NOW THEN.

Right now. I'm challenging your god. I'm calling him out.

I want him to make me a fucking sandwich! And put a sticky note on top, "From God, with love XOXOXO".

I'm going to go take a leak. My door will be locked.

*Exits*

*returns*

All right, I'm back.
No sandwich.
Your religion is false.

Hey Nostradumbass, where does the bible predict the return of Halleys comet? Or tomorrows weather?

It was prophesied at birth that he'd become a Buddha. So there.

Ok, but that doesn't answer the question.

They don't read their own holy book, why expect them to read anyone elses?

Fine. I'll go with that. Give me one non-vague, fulfilled, verifiable prophecy..... still waiting.
BTW any religion that has ancient writings has prophecies.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

Where does your big ol' book of bullhockey predict anything at all that could not have come from the imagination of bronze-age goat herders — such as the discovery of the Americas?

And I'm sure you've talked with Muslims about their prophesies, right you dumb shit?

All religions are counterfeit. There is no way any dogma can encompass the unperceived totality. Therefore, religions are based on guesses which unwisely have been carved in stone.

The fact that you have not bothered to do any research so as to find out whether other religions have profecies or not does not mean that they don't.

wait.. so you're saying, "I know my religion is true, and I'm following the true God, because the bible says so! Duh!"


As I said in a previous comment thread: self-referential evidence = fail.

So, in other words, the bible is true because it says it is.

Not? Aztecs predicted the fall of their empire.

Oracle of Delphi.

There's two prophets for you. Not in your bible.

Do I win?

I'm less annoyed at this fundie than whoever schooled him to talk like this. I doubt that sugarhitman has even the intelligence to lie, he can only repeat other peoples' lies that he is gullible enough to believe.
