Re: [Death To Religion] Atheism vs. Agnosticism
- Ordinary people have their own world but it is a world invaded and ruled
over by ideal beings or transcendentals (God, heroes, martyrs and
saints) of which they(ordinary people) are forced to accept
indebtedness. Although nobody ask to be created(how could we?) we are
forced to believe that somehow we owe it to God for creating us, that we
are indebted to heroes, martyrs and saints for sacrificing their lives
for us, although nobody ask them to, but anyway, should we be thankful
for war and poverty that made the existence of all these "ideal beings"

You're conversing with one of millions, but I can't give you something
you can put under a microscope or aim a telescope at. I'm privileged to
experience miraculous healings, prophecies and provision on a regular
basis. It's not so much frustrating as it is odd to hear my own reality
denied by those who don't share it. My only point was that doubting what
you can't disprove (which so many others know as fact) makes more sense
than denying it.

- I will explain Jesus' alleged suicide.
Jesus is an all knowing, all omniscient god, who as a god surely knew the future. Or so they claim.
Jesus also knew that his preaching and rabble rousing would piss the Romans and a lot of other Jews off.
Jesus could have escaped but he did not.
But, Jesus hung around, and waited for the Romans to arrest him.
At any time in his imaginary trial, Jesus could have said...no, I am not King of the Jews, no I am not here to destroy the Roman empire and he would have lived. Allegedly, he was judged by Pontius Pilate who did not want to become involved in such shenanigans and actually washed his hands of the trial.
Thus, Jesus willingly died by "suicide by cop (i.e. Roman soldier).
Hope this helps....
And take a note: When Jesus was dying, his last words were as an Atheist when he said: Oh father, why did you "forget" (forsake) me...Jesus found out too late there is no god. Oh well.

he had a choice!
