    Satan gave man love. Was it worth the hate?

    Prostitution was a part of it for sure, but without the knowledge of good and evil, you would not know that it was evil. That fact is why Adam did the right thing. Would you not partake of knowledge and be so ignorant of morality as to not know that prostitution was evil? Regards DL

    Satan gave man love. Was it worth the hate?

    Satan gave man love. Was it worth the hate? Adam thought so. He instantly and without argument or hesitation ate of that knowledge when Eve offered love to Adam. Without Satan causing Original Sin, mankind could no know of love or hate as love and hate are subject to being good or evil. Would you do as Adam did? Was Satan right in opening our eyes to love and hate? Should we venerate Satan more than Yahweh who tried to deny mankind love? Regards DL
  3. Mon ordinateur. I have not tracked him across topics but it is not unusual to have some agreeing on some issues and some disagreement on others. Regards DL
  4. You are both off topic. Regards DL
  5. Equality is impossible. Women and children should come first and have rightfully won the equality wars. This is not to say that I do not believe in equality under the law. I do, but would ignore it for my higher duty to family if the need should arise. The protection of home as the family hub and backbone of society is why moral men should and do put women and their children above themselves. That is the highest of a male’s duty to humanity and our evolving species and is a part of our instincts. If a man, and you do not live by the law of the sea and put’s women and children and their needs above your own, even on land, then you would not be doing your highest or first duty to humanity. Do you agree? Regards DL
  6. Is the ongoing punishment of Adam and Eve justifiable? Christian dogma says that Adam and Eve were murdered by neglect when God locked away the tree of life. Eve was deceived by Satan and the talking serpent that God put in Eden. This caused the Original Sin concept that Christianity calls a happy fault and necessary to God’s plan. Was gaining an education and a moral sense, which basically is what gaining knowledge is, justifiable to you? Can you see yourself punishing your children for gaining an education and a moral sense the way God is punishing Adam and Eve to this day? Regards DL
  7. Should the religious world thank the secular world for improving older religious law to the level of excellence we now enjoy? If we grade secular law against theistic laws, I think we will agree that God’s laws are unjust when compared to the laws of most lands. Three cheers for secular world and the world’s intelligentsia. They are the Gnostics of the world and their just laws prove it. Regards DL

    Are Christians, Muslims and atheists idolaters?

    To think a supernatural God set limits is foolish. Regards DL You would be in jail or silenced for breaching your oath of security. But ok. Without documentation and repeatability, such a claim cannot be proven. Regards DL

    Are Christians, Muslims and atheists idolaters?

    We agree on idolatry. For the rest. I hope you mean all that as an analysis of the myth, and not from a belief that Moses actually lived. Most Jews no longer read their myths literally. As to "I AM THAT I AM". Modern Gnostic Christians name our God "I am", and yes, we do mean ourselves. You are your controller. I am mine. You represent and present whatever mind picture you have of your God or ideal human, and so do I. The name "I Am" you might see as meaning something like, --- I think I have grown up thanks to having forced my apotheosis through Gnosis and meditation. In Gnostic Christianity, we follow the Christian tradition that lazy Christians have forgotten that they are to do. That is, become brethren to Jesus. That is why some say that the only good Christian is a Gnostic Christian. Here is the real way Jesus taught. Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Allan Watts explain those quotes in detail. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alRNbesfXXw&feature=player_embedded Joseph Campbell shows the same esoteric ecumenist idea in this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGx4IlppSgU The bible just plainly says to put away the things of children. The supernatural. Regards DL Indeed, and that begins with Gnosis, regardless of your belief or non-belief system. For you to analize things, you have to insure you know yourself enough to be able to trust your judgements. Meditation is what I recommend for knowing your true self. Regards DL

    Do we owe Muslims another apology?

    So you would be pro-active then against evil. Good. That is not what I read into your first. As to your legal system, and political system, I agree that it is screwed. If the people are to just live with them, then that in on the people and not on those who profit from a sloth and immoral population. Regards DL

    Do we owe Muslims another apology?

    Am I reading you right? You would turn a blind eye to female genital mutilation and Honor killings. Right? Regards DL Indeed. Faith without facts is for fools. Regards DL

    Do we owe Muslims another apology?

    Do we owe Muslims another apology? This link says yes. http://bigthink.com/videos/maajid-nawaz-on-islamic-reform This link says no. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQcSvBsU-FM To those who think we should try to separate the good Muslims from the bad Muslims. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drJCC2XXMBo I do not think it is to the non-Muslim world to apologise to Muslims for the criticism we do of their un-civilized ideology. Should we stop judging and criticizing those institutions of religion that are leading us away from a more civilized state? 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. Have you tested the ideology of Islam? Is it good to you? Proverbs 3:12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Is correcting and criticizing Islam the loving or the hateful thing to do? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMJATBMebj8 Regards DL
  15. Are Christians, Muslims and atheists idolaters? Scholars think so and so do I. http://bigthink.com/videos/what-is-god-2-2 Scriptures warn against idol worship yet that is exactly what Christian and Muslims do. If you can talk about or name your God, you are an idolater. Do you realize that? God is often thought of as an ideal. I think that atheists would also fit into the idolater description because they idolize the notion that there is no God and have chosen that as their ideal. Agnostics seem to be the only ones who are not idolaters because, like Gnostic Christians, they do not mind saying, I don’t know or only speaking of things they know to be facts. Regards DL
