Skeptics Who Try To Refute The Supernatural In The Bibles Crack Me Up

The only time that supernatural events ever occurred on this planet supposedly only happened during biblical times, oh and before biblical times, just over 6,000 LOL years ago.

Anyone who has turned water into wine since then has been an obvious fake or magician just playing games with our senses.

Now of course, anyone who has read my blog regularly knows that I don't believe that much of anything written in the Old Testament or New Testament ever happened. The closest either bible comes to reality are the events outlined just prior to the OT being written (around 500 BC or so).

There is absolutely no contemporary evidence which remotely verifies a historical Jesus, a historical Abraham, and a historical Moses.

That is why I just laugh when I read stories about people who think they know how Jesus walked on water without it being a supernatural occurrence.

I just read an article speculating on how the Sea parted for Moses.

I believe it has something to do with early brainwashing most of us are exposed to. We actually assume the bible stories to be based on a majority of facts.

This is completely the farthest thing from the truth. If anything the bible stories are based on a minority of facts, and I'm being kind.

This brainwashing creates a different type of skeptic. Someone who is doubtful of supernatural events, yet "smart" enough to figure out how it really LOL happened using physical laws.

OK, I'm not trying to be condescending here. The first forty years of my life I assumed there was a historical Jesus and a historical Moses. But it only takes a teeny amount of research to find there is no credible contemporary evidence, and the only logical conclusion is that Jesus and Moses and their stories were complete fabrications. Unless you take the willfully ignorant route that is, which the majority of people do.

To me, figuring out how Moses got the Sea to part is exactly the same as trying to figure out how the Cat spoke in The Cat In The Hat.

Burning The Koran And The Ground Zero Mosque

President Obama went out of his way to beg Terry Jones not to burn Korans on September 11th. Why? Because apparently this will upset Radical Muslims, and it will upset moderate Muslims too. However, upsetting the majority of Americans with the building of the Muslim community center/Mosque overlooking Ground Zero is not that big a deal.

Now the Imam behind the Mosque is saying that not building the Mosque will cause Radical Islam to get stronger.

I look at it like this, if Radical Islamists get this emotional over either of these issues, then going ahead with the Mosque and not going ahead with the Koran burnings will be looked at as a victory by these scourges of humanity.

A victory is the best tool of recruitment. It means it could be looked at a cool thing to continue threatening and carrying out terrorist acts.

I don't think there is a way to win here. No matter what happens, it turns out to be a tool for Radical Islam to get stronger. The only answer is to fight the scourge and defeat the scourge.

As for burning the Koran, or any religious book for that matter, I have no problem with it. Whether it is for fun or to prove a point. They are fictional books, and I'm convinced that without religious garbage the world would be a much nicer place.

The reality is that the same laws of the land that enable the Mosque to be built legally are in place to burn the Korans legally. I think anyone is for one and not the other is a hypocrite. If it is legal it is legal. End of story.

Less Fighting With Age

I'm 49, months away from turning The Big Five 0. Anyone following this blog has noticed that my posting has become more infrequent. Part of the reason is I'm very busy building a new business, but as I'm doing this I'm finding my desire to combat the religious whackos is starting to decrease.

I think I've come to realize there is little more new that I can say. I've made my points on this blog over and over again, and the reality is that at least in Canada, I don't have religion being forced on me whatsoever. I see people coming out of churches in smaller numbers than ever before. What I'm trying to say is that people get it for the most part.

Atheist is still a dirty word, but over time, hopefully it won't be. But whether it is a dirty word or not, an atheist can be an atheist without any backlash, where I live. This might not be true of some of all towns and when it comes to the USA, some States.

I do think I've served a purpose though. I know many people land here doing Google searches and wind up at many of, what I believe to be, my relevant posts. I probably have helped quite a few people to become really skeptical about the existence of God, Jesus being more than fictional character, same with Moses and I believe I've educated many on Israel and the hypocrisy of the majority of Muslims when it comes to that topic.

I wonder if it is age that has slowed down my will to fight. It has to do with mortality. At 40 one is still fighting for the future. At 50 and beyond, I think you in the future and you know it, though at least in my case, you try to forget it.

I'm not done yet. I guess this is an apology for not posting so much.
