Interesting Movie

I haven't researched the claims made by this movie, but if anyone can find fault with it - feel free to post.

Is God Real?

This argument comes up so often from Christians, that I thought it would be appropriate to cut this retort off here and now, and just to refer future indignant Christians to this post so I don't have to type my response over and over again.

That being said, lets examine this question:

Christians and God

We live our lives as if there is no God.  Christians, however, use the idea of God, or claim there truly is a God when it is convenient for them.  Christians act like there is no God.  Here are some examples:

  1. Christians buy car insurance.
  2. Churches have property insurance.
  3. Christian cops wear bullet-proof vests.
  4. Christians wear seat-belts.
  5. Christians get their kids immunized.
  6. Christians pass laws to get some of the above made mandatory, to help their fellow Christians.
  7. Some church buildings have lightning rods (lol ironic).
  8. Christians hire private investigators.
If there were a God, none of these would be necessary.

I don't believe many Christians actually believe in God - but use Him as a tool, or sometimes a weapon.  They hope there's a God, but don't really believe.  Someone prove to me how I'm wrong.

Military Religious Fitness Test

The separation of church and state is under attack.  You have to give Christians some credit for their creativity in subverting the Supreme Court and the United States Constitution, though.  Very clever... but very wrong.

New Ten Commandments

The source for this list is here.  I thought about inventing my own list - but why?  This list is very good.  I think if we could get the Biblical Ten Commandments replaced with these, the world would be a better place.

First Commandment: Do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you.

Second Commandment: In all things, strive to cause no harm.

Third Commandment: Treat your fellow human beings, your fellow living things, and the world in general with love, honesty, faithfulness and respect.

Fourth Commandment: Do not overlook evil or shrink from administering justice, but always be ready to forgive wrongdoing freely admitted and honestly regretted.

Fifth Commandment: Live life with a sense of joy and wonder.

Sixth Commandment: Always seek to be learning something new.

Seventh Commandment: Test all things; always check your ideas against the facts, and be ready to discard even a cherished belief if it does not conform to them.

Eighth Commandment: Never seek to censor or cut yourself off from dissent; always respect the right of others to disagree with you.

Ninth Commandment: Form independent opinions on the basis of your own reason and experience; do not allow yourself to be led blindly by others.

Tenth Commandment: Question everything.
