PLEASE DO NOT POST HERE TO DISCUSS THE MERITS OF RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. I saw the firestorm that Pat McGroin started with the first post here, and I do not want that. If you want to argue, start your on thread; I might even join you. But here, I'm just trying to find out the approximate religious composition of THF users.

Agnostic.

Impossible to prove either side due to the nature of science and religion.

Religion itself tends to have 2 sides. The corrupt money machine bent on world control and the small church with truly benevolent intentions.

quantum physics

Anything with stolen stories from sumer isnt worth the effort and shames the names of the good teachers that are caged within the narcissism of so called abrahamic tradition. At least hinduism is remotely quantum physical in esoteric terms. But I wont say Jesus was a freak or idiot , his ideas for humanity were sound, he just wasnt god.

I am more likely to believe that God said, "And...here...we...go!" which kick started the big bang than believe what some dude wrote down after hearing a crazy story from a waken dream.

Why?

Why? Because man's desire for personal glory and celebrity combined with the many mentally ill that have "heard God in their head" casts too much doubt.

Then we have the fact that the original stories themselves were orally carried on, not written for hundreds of years. Tell a short story to one person among a group. Have it repeated to the next 1 at a time. When the story gets back to you, it's not your original story anymore. It's been changed and altered to fill in the memory gaps of the speaker and embellish their own literary input.

Basically put, I don't have enough faith in man to tell a ages old story correctly and without glorifying it for their own gains.

To add to that, the topic of god conciousness has nothing to do with mysticism and novel ideas ripped off from organic civilizations. one story , Moses, Is the exact same story as the sumerian story of Sargon 1 except Sargon created the semitic people as a cognitive secular people in Akkadia.
the idea that white jews being enslaved in egypt is another fraudulent attempt to mislead , according to egyptian history ,which is far more accurate than what the jews would have you believe, When the pharoah moses and his people were found out trying to take the entire egyptian kingdom by financial trickery, they were exiled to Canaan along with their darker skinned jewish slaves. Some how ethiopian jews were able to get away from the racist talmudic white jews and are rumored to be keepers of the arc.

The disproval of abrahamic tradition is so vast, and the facts are so mind numbingly obvious and powerful that to concieve of most people falling under that old false jewish spell is a consideration that renders a person speechless. It becomes clear at various points of counter study that religion is a state device and always has been. And the head of that state device has always been the talmudic false jews.

Most people dont even realize that semite derives from shem the son of ziudsura whom the sargonian jews renamed Noah and judah is the backdrop of the term jew.

Any critical thinker has to wonder about a culture that is always changing names and facts, and then you see israel attcking palestinians in this day and age and the christians that live in palestine suffer the same attacks while american christians send 5 billion a year and then some to support ethnic and religious cleansing.

All based on what? Some holocost? whats a holocost? In hebrew it means burnt offering. To this day the 5 million polish people and the 60-100 million russian orthodox christians that were killed hold no meaning to what jewish revisionists count in jewish deaths,200k to 1 million; And how can that be?

Whoever controls the money makes the rules. Smart jews convert to christianity and other religions because of the holocost lie, which wasnt the first holocost lie told by false jews; That was in roman times where the amount claimed killed equaled more than was the total population of earth at the time.

jews are the smallest ethnic community on earth yet they control most of its resources, and the higher up you go the more false the claim to judahs bloodline, while ethiopian jews practice non talmudic judaism and suffer similar fates as palestinians and christians in israel.

"jews are the smallest ethnic community on earth yet they control most of its resources, and the higher up you go the more false the claim to judahs bloodline, while ethiopian jews practice non talmudic judaism and suffer similar fates as palestinians and christians in israel. "

Have you ever asked yourself why this is so?
According to legend, the Palestinians and the Jews are born fighting brothers for Gods rights, and to Christians, the Jews ignored Gods will at a critical time, and the Jews are jealous of America and consider Christians as usurpers of the truth, while acknowledging shared beliefs, allowable by some on both sides.
So, to see that if the Jews are still somewhat favored by God, so too is their wealth increased, and as America was founded as it was, and regardless of what some may choose to argue as to whether thats true or not as to how America was formed, the people themselves would be blessed by God anyways, as that was what the people are that make up America, once again affirming Gods grace and bounty.
Or, it could just be coincidence. The vast majority of Christians per concentrations is America, the fact of Israel even existing, what power did the Jews in 1947 have to make such a thing? Questions Id be asking, from a technical POV

The answers are there there. The brittish helped establish israel and even accoring to some jewish revisionists it was an all out assault on palestinian christians and muslims from the start. Its a pretty twisted tale and the fact that most israelis are pro genocide (ethnic cleansing) is just evidence of the propaganda they have suffered as an ethnic minority. Fortunately more and more jews are coming out against the murderous thugs in power, from scholars to IDF and mossad soldiers to college students, all of whom are labelled self haters by the main jewish ruling class. There was a former jew that did a documentary on the lies of the holocost " Cole in auschwitz", The lies that we all accept are just emotional manipulation to sell an idea that allows a very small amount of people to have control over the entire world.
Are people that gullible? yes and then some.
January 30, 2010 6:12:39 PM

But this early after the war, those atastrophies werent as generally accepted or known, and granted, have become ver pronounced, for good or bad, one way or the other.
My point is, howd this happen? Why them? No one twisted Britains hands here. And also, why do they have such riches today? They have no oil.
And why is the US as strong as it is? If God does favor those who favor Him, this makes sense, and Im just wondering what non faith peoples see as reasons for these blessings if you will.
And, not far off the mark are also the muslims, whove been left with the oil as well, as also being "family " if you will.
I find it a coicidence, many actually, especially with the Jews coming back, and a new Israel being created, after thousand + years.
If theres documentation as to why this all happened, Israel, then Id love to see it.
Im sure theres some claiming its none other than the Brits belief system, Im also sure its was strong handed, but in doing what they did, they didnt really create any new colony for their use, and they knew that as well. Maybe it was a good cop bad cop scenario, which seems most likely, but one things for sure, its one huge coincidence

the rothshilds have owned brittain since the late 1700's , they are jewish, funded hitler , hitlers lineage was jewish ,1500 of his elite soldiers officers were jews and half jews, 40% of the first russian bolshovic cabinet was jewish, they killed 60-100 million orthodox christians.

How deep do you want to go here Jay? How about the fact that the jewish bible is just altered plagiarized rip offs of many cutures.

Holocost means burnt offering in hebrew; that is a mainstay in hebrew cuture and goes back to post sargonian akkadia and was introduced to south american culture as human sacrifice, the proof of contact being the maga bowl and the monolith both bearing semitic cuneiform .

Of course a few of these observations are mine but they are logical to deduce from facts.
January 30, 2010 11:00:16 PM

What I find strange is, where did the Jews come from? I mean, if you read the old testament, it goes way back in time, and all the sudden, theyre a culture out of nowhere? And have only copied everyone else? Or, the things other cultures did was a deeper more meaningful thing, forgotten along the way?
Why do the Jews beliefs survive then? If they are the same, as some say, they carry them forwards, never departed from them, and to say 1 is copied from the other or not, those other cultures are dead, long ago.
What did the Jews do right here? And surely, the Rothschilds are a well known name, but even they dont have the clout to enter into such idealistic ventures of creating a country that hadnt existed for tens of centuries. This is a mystery of which Ive never seen a satisfying answer.
Its said itd be here in the bible, well, for tens of centuries, it wasnt, you know of anything else like this in the history of mankind, a group of people, strewn across the world (as said in the bible), claiming a country that hadnt existed for tens of centuries, and claiming beliefs that are long dead to man, other than their own.
The bible says its truth, these things, that these things would happen, and thered be a Israel. The Jews didnt copy these things because they were popular when written, going back, and those other cultures didnt believe in a single God either.
They lost their way, the Jews didnt, until later, which also was predicted, and the scattering etc, and thier falloing away from the truth.
It has been said, he who was last, shall later be first, and he who was first, shall later be last, and these words are a promise, and also appear to be in motion

I think that grouping up all in the "Secular/Nonreligious/Atheist/Agnostic" group is very unreasonable... I am an Agnostic and its pretty hard to understand the meaning of belif of that which you all call religion and "God" Futher more you should have not stereotyped the guys who dont belive god exists because if you do a little bit of research you would find that for example atheists are the ones who really think that there cannot be a "God"
There is no proof that there is a god, same way as there isnt any proof that there isnt... even though i would tend to the there is no god crowd, because if there is one, hes One Sick F**k.
You can all bable around how there is proof all over, but for me thats as worth it as me telling everyone that i'm an 18 year old girl with an acting career in adult entertainment. (i'm guessing that you can probably figure out that i'm not an 18 year old girl with an acting career in adult entertainment)
January 31, 2010 12:43:42 AM

Your experience is as odd to me as mine is to yours, as someone elses is to both of us.
I can say what I know, feel etc, and as someone once said in another section, the experts tried various thought processes, but, if youre not actually living them, then its incomplete, and then, even trying to get others to understand when you dont even live it, well, its impossible.
What we all have before us, is between God and each one of us. I can add nothing but my own experience, which cqant be shared, and rarely understood, unless someone else has had similar experiences

sounds reasonable to me.

just get into science, i think alot of scientists are agnostic. as to god being a sick fawk, iit is us who is sick and using the whole of the law at will without being responsible for ourselves. in god hood there is no mommy figure or daddy figure yet mankind insists on having it so in order to justufy his pathetic immaturity, down side is s a whole the dumb lazy bastards wind up getting owned on all sides and killed in mass numbers.

Do what thou will is the whole of the law, if man wants the grace of the law he has to make it himself and not through popmpous godhead organizations like government. Humans are simply very stupid selfish immature beings.

at some point, or perhaps: mysticism
many people...especially in these times, are having spiritual experiences not always related to the same religious figures
February 5, 2010 10:42:08 PM

verndewd what i mean by the sick f**k is for example genetic mutations... by the religious notion of right and wrong, one who is good will not be punished by something wrong he has not done, and even if man punishes him from desbelief or what ever then god will punish the punisher and reward the punished, but how can a child who has not yet done wrong nor write be born with the general notion of a punishement. People can argue that its a punishement for the parents, but even so that only happens if the child is does not have self-awareness, thus beeing a person on its own. You can try to counter-argue this, but the more you use your imagination to come up with an arguement as to the chance that a "good" god did this, you should remember that that will also open the doors to my imagination and we wont be talking about the same thing soon enough.
If another example is needed then how about Natural disasters like the Earth quake that has killed so many? i bet i can find somewhere in the world where the indecent people per square mile would be greater and so making it a much better target for a Vengeful god.
PS: there was one mathmatician that through math (go figure) proved that there might not be a god, but since the consequences of not beliving in god even if there was one would be great, so we should all assume there is one. But it doesnt convince me lol. Plus if there is a god he cant be mad at me since he should know why i dont belive in him lol... if he wants me to belive, he knows where to find me (so they say)

people are confused anout god and the bible is just a perversion of roman and jewish control ideas. not saying it lacks insight just takw what can be used and leave the rest.

its just an early mechanism to make people fear doing things their own way, based o n solid ancient wisdom but heavilly perverted..

February 7, 2010 1:33:11 PM

Actually, the ideas were fine if followed thru, but zealots took over.
Having equal opportunities for women is perfrct, but instead, we end up with title nine, where for every dollar spent on a guys sport, 1 must be spent on a womans.
Making sure people of all color are treated fairly, well, we have laws that say, we have enough blacks, now we need some browns, but yellow need not apply etc. True foolishness out of something quite noble, from those damn hippies, but again, the zealots took over.
This isnt what was envisioned at the time, trust me, so to blame it on them, while still giving a pass to the zealots who corrupted these great ideas is wrong.
Womens lib? National Org of Women.
headed up by? Lesbians. I think women are best for women, and not a specific sexual preference in regards to making suggestions towards equality.
I could go on, but I think youve gotten the idea how good things were corrupted by a few zealots, and taken several steps beyond the needs. Back up the ideas by law, support the law, its all you need.
If youve been wronged, go radical on them in court, not the general laws and rules, until theyre browken, not before
