How about unblocking me. I want to be friends
now, lets forget the past. I'm sorry for the stuff
I said years ago, I was being a jerk. I respect you
now and want to be able to send you PM's.

In over 15,000 posts, I can never recall EB retracting or apologizing for anything. What have you done with the real EB?

Nareed and I have a lot more in common
than not. We actually share a lot of the
same views.

Nareed, I really enjoy your posts in the religious
section, you make so many good points I can't
keep up with all of them. I admire your analytical
thinking, it's much better than mine.

analytic thinking - the abstract separation of a whole
into its constituent parts in order to study the part
and their relations

Nareed, you nailed it with the astrology comment.
It's a perfect example of how something can last
for thousands of years and be total baloney.

People not only believe what they want, they
love to get on the bandwagon and believe
what others do. No thinking involved. Did
astrology die out with the modern era of
science? Hell no, it's as strong as ever.

People like it for the same reason they like
Christianity. Astrology is about me me me.
Just like the religion. It's all focused on your
ego, what you're going to get out of it. Your
personal god who worries about YOU, has
a plan for YOU, sent his son for YOU, and
he died for YOU.

Astrology is the same. It's all tailored to fit
YOU, cater to YOU, make your ego feel
bathed in the attention.

Good job, Nareed. You really clarified things
for me.

Bob, I'll leave it to you on your own to see how the comparison between astrology and Christianity is ridiculous. However, I just can't allow you to continue to spout this stuff about Christianity being about ego or about YOU.

Christianity is a humble recognition that it is NOT about you, it's about Him and about others. It is your atheism that is all about you and making your personal ego into a god that determines based on your personal preferences what is true or good.

The other ironic thing is that you are going about wooing Narred the wrong way. If you have been following our discussions in the other threads she has made it clear that the question to be asked is: what is in it for me? The me, me, me you accuse Christianity of is much more akin to an honest atheist like Narred.

That's the only question anybody really asks.
Even the most altruistic. Even a saint wants
to know whats in it for him.

I admit I have zero idea what this means.
What's an 'honest atheist'?
