    Just kidding guys. But I really do wish cycling forums administration would E-radicate this thread. And I really am a proud agnostic. But my mindset isnt NEARLY that extremist.

    I don't believe in your god. I just do what the voices tell me...(Imagine sound of deranged laughter here).

    P.S. Anyone out there read "Under the Banner of Heaven" by Jon Krakauer? It's a real eye opener.

    My least favorite verse in the Bible use to be the one about a fool being of many words as I can be quite verbally prolific.

    Anyway my new least favorite is the one about how Jesus will not know some who had even cast out deamons in his name.

    On a lighter note here are some old light bulb jokes.

    How Many Christians Does It Take to Change a Light Bulb?
    *Charismatic:* Only 1 - Hands are already in the air.
    *Pentecostal:* 10 - One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the
    spirit of darkness.
    *Presbyterians:* None - Lights will go on and off at predestined times.
    *Roman Catholic:* None - Candles only. (Of guaranteed origin of course.)
    *Baptists:* At least 15 - One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad and fried chicken.
    *Episcopalians:* 3 - One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks, and one to talk about how much better the old one was.
    *Mormons:* 5 - One man to change the bulb, and four wives to tell him how to do it.
    *Unitarians:* We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, you are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, 3-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.
    *Methodists:* Undetermined - Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or
    tulip bulb. Bring a bulb of your choice to the Sunday lighting service and a covered dish to pass.
    *Nazarene:* 6 - One woman to replace the bulb while five men review church lighting policy.
    *Lutherans:* None - Lutherans don't believe in change.
    *Amish:* What’s a light bulb?

    I leave this forum for two minutes and when I get back, look what you kids have been up to! Why back when I was a regular poster, this kind of thread would have been shot down quicker than... well, quicker than something that got shot down real fast.

    It's called freedom of speech. Maybe if a few more Christians started to sppek out, we would not have some of the problems in the Schools and in Goverment. The man is just sharing his message, even though this thrad is about cycling. Get off his ass!

    But do you realize that in the original language of the Bible, the "thou shalt not kill" used a word referring to murder, while war and capital punishment are referred to with different words? Thus, there is no hypocrisy in believing the Bible, being a Christian, and yet supporting war and capital punishment.

    So as an atheist, your belief system is based on the *non-existence* of something? I'm always astounded by how many people fall in to the trap of atheism. To be certain that something like God does not exist anywhere in the universe requires knowledge of the complete universe. But having knowledge of the complete universe would make someone ominiscient, and thus like God. This is ia a logical inconsistency that atheists cannot defend. Or do you have a defense?

    I believe they're so desperate to spread the religion coz of money, RC is a hugh corporation makin tons of money, the more ppl believe the more money they make, something like AMWAY, more downline.

    The pope sorry to say this at this grief moment he's the CEO, I've always question why when jesus walk when he could have ppl carrying him? coz he's humble, but pope chooses to cruz around on a merc 600, fully armoured, why?

    Does he not have faith in the god he's promoting? He thinks jesus can't protect him?

    He lived like a king, and even has a summer villa where he retreats to when jesus retreat to the hills and meditate in the forest.

    Is he afraid of dying when he always promote heaven being a better place?
