About me

I’m a Christian, I like to go exploring, would like to have my own farm, would like to go to Israel and plant some trees in the desert there. I’m into reading and watching shows and movies about these things: astronomy, archeology, mineralogy, logical fallacies, the bible, mineral hunting, farming, history, haunted houses, UFOs, alien abductions, crop circles, megaliths, pyramids, bigfoot, unexplained disappearances and cryptozoology. I know a decent amount about psychology, narcissism, psychopathy, sociopathy and avoidant personality disorder. I like tennis and to golf a little for fun. When I say “I’m a Christian” that means “Christ-follower” not “my own heart-follower”, “opinion-follower”, “my own will above Christ’s-follower”, or “follower of whoever wants me to follow them over Christ’s will”. And how can you know Christ’s will? He stated it in the Bible, and where it is said in riddles, there are often explanations of them within the Bible itself, including from Christ.

I’ve saved a few lives over the recent years, physically (unfortunately all the people whom I saved in person, are severely hateful, backstabbing, unthankful, mentally unstable drunks) and have lead over 100 people, mostly teens, to Christ from 1998-2004. From about 2007-2009 I also lead many people to Christ and helped many to refrain from committing suicide right away, though combined, this amount does not seem to have come close to my earlier success. I had less success during the second period because of various cyberstalkers, especially atheist ones, especially a certain four atheists. Among the non-atheists were Arminian and “saved by works” type Christians, who are prone to mental illness and still in their sins.

I mainly spend my time searching for and posting overlooked evidence for the Bible, and naturally such evidence would go against anti-Biblical claims and theories.

For many years I’ve been trying to publish very large books in defense of Christianity and Reformed Baptist doctrine, or rather against Arminian heresies, including the teaching that tithing is required by God and that tithing will result in a return of 10 or 100 times what you’ve tithed, at some time in the future. However, the harassers I mentioned, especially the atheists and insane woman, hindrance from my parents, harassment from the police, harassment from false and fellow Christians (and abandonment by both) a hoard of bad neighbors, health problems, and many hardware and software failures, have delayed it greatly, since 2004. However, if I had published the first ones that early, it would have been premature as I know, from having continued to develop them over time, however, the harassment and other problems I mentioned contributed to my slowness in completing them. At this time, all the books are near a publishing state, however, due to having multiple projects to deal with now and a massive amount of information to go through before putting in the finishing touches.

Note to people who wonder why their comments don’t get posted: 1) Fake names 2) Fake emails = anonymous coward. If you can insult me and use a completely false profile, while I show mine, you’re comments will not be read past the first sentence. 3) Dumb questions like “How do you know there is a God” (look around and consider: what were the odds of all the beautiful things in the universe (down to the microscopic level and those things far far away that you can’t see, much of which is not just beautiful, but useful for living, and even ugly things can be “cute” and amaze)… what are the odds of all that being mere chance? And what is the evidence that the universe is just some natural event? And for you who believe in parallel universes and multiple universes and other dimensions with life: where is your evidence? No, this universe is unique, and the only other thing like a universe where life exists according to the evident Bible, is Heaven. And if there is another dimension with life, it would only be Hell, and where demons dwell while still being able to interact with this planet. And for those who ask, “Why do you assume the Bible is true?” My answer: Why do you assume that I assume guy who doesn’t read past the title, or carefully, or who asks questions without looking carefully for the answers? And besides my own journal being filled with evidence for the Bible, the Internet is overloaded with it. So, for you logic-impaired morons who still can’t figure it out, here’s some help: “If, the, Bible, is, true, then, it, is, right, about, God, existing, and whatever, else, it, says, about, him.” Was that simple and slow enough for you? It’s not hard reading a book about the Bible or the Bible itself clueless people. It’s not hard to pray, “If you exist show me the evidence”.

Further: when you start a sentence off with an insult, or type long rants or make repeated posts using a fake name and especially email: I consider that harassment, just like you hypocritical morons would if that were done to you.

May God continue to do good to my friends and enemies, and gift them good gifts, as he has done for thousands of years, and may he save billions of people from ending up in Hell and give them eternal life.

    God be with you, it sounds like you would be doing us all a favor.

    I can’t say I appreciate your stab at Catholics when you refer to us as ‘cult Christians’, but I believe you are on the whole in the right direction. I myself am a Catholic, and I believe in many of the things I have read from you here. We are not all that different. A grace we could all exercise more is a second chance, giving others a second chance, and I pray that you will too. Please don’t take offense at what I’m saying, this is just how I see it, and I would like you to see it in the clearest way possible, whether or not the result of that is views that align with mine.

    I originally came over here to comment on your quote about global warmingists, and that is what I shall do now. I believe that the earth is heating up, yes, so maybe you will call me a ‘global warmingist’, but I also believe that abortion is severely wrong. So I’m paying attention to both, not ignoring one or the other.

    You must look at the whole picture, my friend, look at all the people, not just a select few, to know what is really happening.

    God bless.

      “You must look at the whole picture, my friend, look at all the people, not just a select few, to know what is really happening.”

      And your evidence that I haven’t looked at the whole picture and only a “select” few people is… It’s your own claim. It’s obvious that you are the one who has not looked at the whole picture, being that you made a claim like that without evidence — that you assumed. Do you know the difference between Catholicism and Calvinism, or why Luther broke away? We are different, especially taking what Revelation says into account. There are three types of Roman Catholics (and in general this applies to all Christians): There is the type who take their religion seriously, and so study ways to defend it using “public declarations” made by the Pope or councils of bishops or something like them, which are supposedly infallible. The second type believes that their church is infallible but doesn’t know their official teachings well, they just trust that it’s the true church with some basic knowledge. The third has basic knowledge, but doesn’t believe their church is the only way to God, and doesn’t know why they do various rituals, but just do so thinking that performing those rituals will, or might help them get forgiveness and to Heaven, no matter how they live their lives, even if it’s denying that God can save them. So, the last type trust in the rituals themselves, as if they were magic. A Reformed equivalent of the third type would be one who trusts in any of these for salvation: communion, baptism, reading the Bible, praying, praising God, especially on Sundays inside a church building. I usually meet the last type of Catholic. The one that I said worshiped Randy Orton in my journal — she called her parents her “Rock”, just like that, and if I remember right, she put it in bold. General differences: Your church prays to mere humans and angels for salvation, rather than to God alone, goes to priests to be forgiven rather than to God alone… some worship idols, and it seems recently in the past few years, even ridiculous things like a supposed image of “the Virgin Mary” on a piece of toast. You don’t seem to know the attitude of the Pope’s towards Reformed Christians, Calvinists: Calvinist’s have no place in Heaven in the eyes of the Popes, Muslims and witches who reject the Bible have a better chance of going to Heaven in the eyes of your last two popes, why are you in disagreement with them? In fact the attitude of the last two popes towards embracing the religions of the world as legitimate has lead to the creation of new Catholic denominations. Do I have to go over what Luther already did 400+ years ago? Did you read what Calvin’s said in reply to Sadoleto? If you knew the difference between Catholics and Calvinists, you never would have told me we are “not all that different”. And how can you forget: Calvinists, no Reformed Baptist or Presbyterian has ever killed anything close to 50,000,000 over 1000 years. Only communist atheists have killed more than that. We’re alike in superficial ways when it comes to religion.

      The wise ones of your denomination are even against your Popes for heresies against their own official Catholic doctrines: http://www.traditioninaction.org/HotTopics/a00ConsequencesIndex.html There’s no disagreements as serious in my Church like yours has. The main divisions between Baptists and Presbyterians are:

      how to dress, if communion should be allowed for non-members of a local church or not, and if sprinkling water on a person counts as baptism. That’s it. Yet your members disagree on how to be saved; the most important aspect of the Christian religion. Your church boasts about unity, sure there is unity about various things, but when every other person in your church disagrees about how to be saved, and your church doesn’t separate out the heretics and nominal Christians hardly, not even if they molest a child, how can your church boast about unity? And this is a trait I know to be true among all false churches, from experience, from having seen the big picture: their members contradict not just themselves, but each other, even when they are with each other they come up with incompatible teachings. I won’t argue with you about this.

    Okay: I’m pretty mad: I thought I had passworded this part of my journal. No wonder it was getting comments then. Oh well, apparently God wanted everyone to see it. Still mad.

    Thanks for the information. I agree there are some things out there that we need to steer clear of including weird doctrine. I may not have the same church background. I don’t mind learning about different church theologians, but I find that we can get so wrapped up in that we forget to turn to Christ over some theologian’s “opinion” so I just stick to the Bible and try to keep myself out of theological debates.

    I figure all I can do is pray and let the Holy Spirit do the work He’s so famous for doing with folks. You’re really cool (no I’m not kissing up)keep on doing what the Lord’s called you to do and HANG IN THERE! :-D

    • July 26, 2010 at 4:23 PM

      Did you mean this?:

      I agree there are some things out there that we need to steer clear of including weird doctrine. I don’t have the same Christian type of upbringing as all other church theologians, but I don’t mind learning what they have to teach. I find that some people automatically believe some theologian’s opinion and forget to consult the Bible and pray. I just stick to the Bible and try to keep myself out of theological debates.

      I figure all I can do is pray and let the Holy Spirit do the work…

      The Bible has verses which command or imply to refute false doctrines which claim to be Biblical, and to rebuke Christians who teach heresy. It also teaches to mock fools back (but not in an evil way like they do) to shut them up, but not to mock mockers back because then they will hate you (a mistake I’ve made many times). It doesn’t say to avoid false doctrine, but to try and get rid of them by refuting them verbally, and that if some people reject verbal correction or just verbal teaching without correction to keep obeying God with the hope that your good behavior will persuade them to turn to him, and to also use prayer. As for debates, it teaches to debate, but that if the person you are debating is a heretic (someone who is stubbornly speaking against the Bible and resisting reasoning) to avoid them after the first and especially the second correction you give them, and to avoid arguments of ignorance (like someone arguing the Bible is filled with contradictions, which anyone can see is not true or not a significant argument by spending a few days or weeks of studying with the convenience of search engines, libraries and book stores and going to churches and collecting responses to various Christians on questions concerning whatever contradiction they bring up – as opposed to just reading and thoughtlessly believing an alleged contradiction and then saying to Christians, “Ahah: you are wrong because this shows the Bible contradicts itself). Remember Jesus said that we are the salt of the Earth (those who bring God’s judgment (his word, corrections using it and explanations of his word – remember what happened to Lot’s wife?).

      Everything will be unimaginably beautiful one day, thanks to God’s creativity. The only things that won’t be cool are the people in Hell.

    Greetings Daniel!
    This is my first time looking over your website, so please excuse me if my opinions are solely a response to your “About Me” page. You appear very adamant in your opinions about religion, and as someone who has never met a serious “christ follower”, I had some questions about your (and your god’s) message. Please don’t consider this a rant or in any way hateful, I’m truly genuinely curious.

    1.Have you read the Torah, the Koran, or any other religious text in its entirety? Because your intro indicates that you want people to read and utilize the bible to defend a prospective against your version of Christianity. Doesn’t this mean that you should study other religious texts in order to disprove them? Food for thought; it may help in your argument.

    2.I’m not trying to debate whether you are wrong or right; every person is entitled to voice their opinions. However, I don’t understand why (also in your intro) you say “When you start a sentence off with an insult… I consider that harassment”, and yet in many of your responses you call people who dispute your message “morons”, “heartless psychopaths”, and “maliciously lying and harassing idiots”. I’ve read the bible several times, with the exception of revelations, and I don’t remember Christ ever using similar sentiments when he was trying to show others the error of their ways. Harmful words will not strengthen your argument or make the other person more willing to accept your message. (I’m assuming you desire others to catch on to your message based on the mentions you make to saving lives) As a Christ follower, where are you getting this strategy from?

    3.This is my most curious point. You say that “God desires that all men be saved”, but not everyone will be in real life. Does this mean (in your perspective) that God can’t have everything he desires? I’ve always considered the bible as depicting an omnipotent and infallible god, which doesn’t quite seem to correspond with a figure that desires something and cannot achieve his desires.

    With peace in mind, brother,

      “Greetings Daniel!
      This is my first time looking over your website, so please excuse me if my opinions are solely a response to your “About Me” page. You appear very adamant in your opinions about religion,”

      They aren’t opinions. You assume they are because you didn’t check for evidence. Like you said, just a response to my about me page, and as I pointed out in the beginning, you can use a search engine to find it if you don’t want to look through my journal.

      “and as someone who has never met a serious “christ follower”, I had some questions about your (and your god’s) message. Please don’t consider this a rant or in any way hateful, I’m truly genuinely curious.

      1.Have you read the Torah,”

      The Torah is included in the Bible, I’ve read it many times because I use it to defend the Bible and live my life. Or did you mean the Talmud, which is racist?

      “the Koran,”

      I’ve read the Quran and wrote a book about it; it’s full of mistakes and absurdities. See http://20questions.to learn why Islam is wrong, and http://faceofislam.tk to see how corrupt it can make those who believe it.

      “or any other religious text in its entirety?”

      You don’t have to read the entire book of whatever religion to know it’s right or wrong. If the Bible said, “The sky is red and looks red to all humans and always will” there’s a clue right there that it’s wrong. Or if it said in one verse: “Jesus Christ the son of God is the saviour.” and a few verses later, “Jesus Christ the son of God doesn’t exist.” there’s another clue, and clues which would show it to not be divine if the were all throughout the Bible or in most of its books. It would still have historical value if there was evidence for what it said, but if no ancient copies were found without these errors, then it would obviously not be from a perfect God. I’ve read “Buddha’s” rants and wrote about them (look for Sunyata in my journal) and see also http://hypocrites.tk

      “Because your intro indicates that you want people to read and utilize the bible to defend a prospective against your version of Christianity.”

      A what.

      “Doesn’t this mean that you should study other religious texts”

      Read my journal and stop assuming things.

      “in order to disprove them? Food for thought; it may help in your argument.”

      See above.

      “2.I’m not trying to debate whether you are wrong or right;”

      You can’t since you don’t know my arguments apparently.

      “every person is entitled to voice their opinions.”

      That’s an assumption based on your ignorance of God. God doesn’t allow people to do whatever they want, and what they are allowed to do is determined by him. If a baby dies in the womb, and hardly had any thoughts, that was what God “entitled” it to be allowed to do. There are no “basic human rights” but opportunities, to do good or evil.

      “However, I don’t understand why (also in your intro) you say “When you start a sentence off with an insult… I consider that harassment”, and yet in many of your responses you call people who dispute your message “morons”, “heartless psychopaths”, and “maliciously lying and harassing idiots”.

      Your putting words in my mouth, your implying that I will only call a person whatever based on if they insult me. Further, you seem to mean that only if someone says, “moron” or some “name” that anything else isn’t an insult, which is childish. Do you know what it means to be conniving? Or if someone says, “Wow I hate your blog bye.” you don’t consider that an insult? Do you know what “insult” means? Look it up in some dictionaries.

      See also my recent reply to Travis here: https://eternian.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3968&action=edit

      Also, a comment may be in response to someone leaving evil comments that I don’t post or who leaves a post that I can post which when I reply to, is also in response to the ones I didn’t show, so don’t assume I just suddenly call someone a moron for no reason.

      “I’ve read the bible several times, with the exception of revelations,”

      no “s”

      “and I don’t remember Christ ever using similar sentiments”

      Then you didn’t read carefully and/or your memory is poor. Read what he said again, and look up the word “morons”, and again, look up what “insult” is. Something to keep in mind is that Christians are supposed to obey God over anyone else and that they are supposed to (and many do) go by God’s standard of right, not the world’s. So remember not to judge Christians by YOUR standard of right.

      “when he was trying to show others the error of their ways.”

      He did, he didn’t try. And that wasn’t the only thing he did.

      “Harmful words will not strengthen your argument or make the other person more willing to accept your message.”

      See above. And also, you’re assuming Christians only speak to lead a person to Christ. Not at all. Look up the word “rebuke” and “condemn” and “avoid” in Scripture (different translations may use different words), which is most efficiently done using e-sword at http://e-sword.net which allows you to compare multiple versions at once. You can also use biblegateway.com to search the NIV.

      “(I’m assuming”

      Never assume. Assumption is the way of morons and cultists.

      “you desire others to catch on to your message based on the mentions you make to saving lives) As a Christ follower, where are you getting this strategy from?”

      Read the Bible.

      “3.This is my most curious point. You say that “God desires that all men be saved”, but not everyone will be in real life.”

      You desire things, but know you can’t have whatever you desire, so with your will, your mind, you restrain yourself from trying to get things you know you can’t get, or try to get what you think will be best first. It has nothing to do with life being real or not, everything that exists is “real” including God’s desires. It has to do with God’s will vs his desires.

      “Does this mean (in your perspective) that God can’t have everything he desires?”

      God chose not to have everything he desires. He willed that many (which will be like nothing compared to an ever expanding population) will end up in Hell as proof of what happens to those who choose to ignore him and hate him (and eventually anyone who ends up in Hell will naturally hate God for sending them there). That way all those who have never sinned and never will will see what it’s like to sin, and it will help convince them to never disobey and to hate disobedience.

      “I’ve always considered the bible as depicting an omnipotent and infallible god, which doesn’t quite seem to correspond with a figure that desires something and cannot achieve his desires.”

      Consider that God is able to show restraint, which shows his omnipotence. Also, there is no logical connection between “getting whatever you desire” and being all powerful, because as I pointed out, but which didn’t get across to you, the desire is not “willing”, “the will”, “choice” or “choosing”.

        Hello again, Daniel,
        I’m fascinated by your explanation that God shows restraint (I’ve never heard this before!). That would explain many things, especially bad circumstances which humans usually do not want to attribute to higher design (natural disasters, the death of a child, etc.). Do you think God feels bad when he must utilize restraint against one of his children?

        That being said, I’m still stuck on the insult point. I understand the vast and varying spectrum of insults. (for instance, I take your phrasing “’Buddha’s’ rants” when referring to the Sutras as an insult). You say “a comment may be in response to someone leaving evil comments that I don’t post … don’t assume I just suddenly call someone a moron for no reason.” One of the main passages of the bible which sticks out for me is Jesus telling his people “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them” (Matthew 7:12). You seem very upset by others insulting you. By the law of God, isn’t it your duty to do unto others what you want done unto yourself? This would require never insulting anyone, even when they are rude and apparently deserving. I realize this is a very difficult standard to uphold. You say “ Something to keep in mind is that Christians are supposed to obey God over anyone else and that they are supposed to (and many do) go by God’s standard of right, not the world’s”. I can see the societal limitations of never being rude; people will walk all over you. I’m just pointing out that if one hold’s God’s law above human laws, then the subsequent behavior would be to never do things of which you would not want to be on the receiving end. Side-note: If you can remember specific passages of Jesus insulting (and not just correcting) others, I’d be curious to read more into that.

        I would like to clarify where my assumption for you wanting to spread your message came from. I noticed you are in the process of writing a book (or books), you actively interact with others on a blog explaining your perspective, and you express a sense of accomplishment when you mention saving many lives. From these findings, many people including myself would infer that you want to spread your message. Maybe you are writing that book just for yourself. I’m sorry if that appeared too assumptive, but humans are culturally designed to learn through the process of assumption, assimilation, and accommodation (see Piaget’s cognitive theory).

        Later you say “That’s an assumption based on your ignorance of God”. There are thousands of religions with many moral overlaps, one example being the golden rule which I mentioned earlier. I admit to an ignorance of your God, but to be clear I have a beautifully complex understanding and deep, fruitful relationship with my god (we love each other to pieces). I hope you can respectfully accept this perspective when addressing me, even though you believe the Christian God to be truth (to this statement I am expecting the response “but the Christian God IS truth). I can respect and accept your perspective, I’m only asking for a similar respect in return [“Judge not, that ye be not judged” (Matthew 7:1)] I realize one particular Christian perspective that people should “correct, reject, and be bold to sinners”, but let’s save ourselves the effort and leave the judging of my morality to God alone.

        I’m curious about your statement “There are no “basic human rights” but opportunities, to do good or evil.” Partially this statement alludes me because I do not believe in evil, nor was I raised with the notion. People have tried to convince me by explaining “rape is evil” or “murder is evil” (you even said some people’s comments were evil). I am aware the first two transgressions go against the Ten Commandments, but I see all human action as a result of physiological makeup and upbringing. I believe all people’s souls are pure, and often become tainted by society and genetic abnormalities (there are no bad infants). Feel free to debate this. My main issue with your statement is that you do not believe in human rights. Does this mean that you do not recognize your own and others’ rights “given” to us by the government (if you are from some country which gives its citizens certain rights)? Even if you do not believe in them, do you uphold these human designated laws? A man cannot be an island; part of temporal life is coexisting within society. I understand that your opinions are probably quite different from the opinions of those you interact with daily. Do you believe that God wants you to treat each person with a certain minimal standard, no matter how “good” or “evil” they are? In other words, does God give us “human rights”?

        Again, in peace, brother,

        I might have answered u earlier had I seen that u were the one who kept looking at this page, but your ip for commenting doesn’t match the other one you’re using, so I thought u were someone else.

        “Hello again, Daniel,
        I’m fascinated by your explanation that God shows restraint (I’ve never heard this before!). That would explain many things, especially bad circumstances which humans usually do not want to attribute to higher design (natural disasters, the death of a child, etc.). Do you think God feels bad when he must utilize restraint against one of his children?”

        The comment “restraint against” is confusing, that’s like saying, “not giving food against,” it sounds grammatically nonsensical somehow. God already says how he feels about punishing the wicked:

        And Yahweh was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So Yahweh said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them. – Gen 6:6-7

        “Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? … Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord GOD; so turn, and live.” … Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord GOD, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?” – Ezekiel 18:23,30-32, 33:11

        …he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. … And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.” – Luke 19:28, 42-44

        O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not! – Matthew 23:37

        Also someone to keep in mind is that Jesus disappears for an unknown time before condemning the world (the evil ones of it), can you imagine why he would leave for a while, before doing such a thing?

        “That being said, I’m still stuck on the insult point. I understand the vast and varying spectrum of insults. (for instance, I take your phrasing “’Buddha’s’ rants” when referring to the Sutras as an insult).”

        Did you look in the dictionary yet? Or multiple ones? Or look up the definition in a Bible dictionary? Don’t dwell on what is useless.

        “You say “a comment may be in response to someone leaving evil comments that I don’t post … don’t assume I just suddenly call someone a moron for no reason.” One of the main passages of the bible which sticks out for me is Jesus telling his people “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them” (Matthew 7:12).”

        Could you not use old english please? Old English isn’t the national language, it’s not the common language, why are you using it? That’s annoying to me. Obviously you’re not listening on this point, otherwise I wouldn’t have had to repeat myself: stop judging me based on your misinterpretation.

        “You seem very upset by others insulting you.”

        Make a point.

        “By the law of God, isn’t it your duty to do unto others what you want done unto yourself?”

        So if I eat a banana I must also force someone to eat one? You’re taking the Bible out of context. Logic: read the Bible, look up the meanings of words you don’t understand, read it in modern English. That way you don’t have to do as much work in understanding what you are reading, which is a waste of time. Listen: the Bible says to rebuke and correct, it also points out correction is unpleasant, but it doesn’t say, “therefore avoid correction and giving it.” If it meant, “don’t hurt anyone’s feelings/don’t cause pain”, we’d all be dead, because if we only did what felt good, we’d all have been killed by disease, starvation, bad weather and wild animals. Only a lazy and stupid person would think, “I’ll avoid all pain and only do what feels good, I’ll sleep all day and avoid work, because it’s painful.” And imagine all the dead children, who if they didn’t die in laziness, died from neglectful parents who only did what caused no pain.

        “This would require never insulting anyone,”

        Answered above.

        “even when they are rude and apparently deserving.”

        You’re right: we should never punish, never even punish our children, just let people do whatever and say nothing that hurts feelings. Forget spanking, lashing, isolation, even saying, “You did wrong!” Let’s all lie down on geese and sleep next to fruit trees, and only eat what falls to the ground, but not even that if it causes muscle pain.

        “I realize this is a very difficult standard to uphold.”

        And you’ll be judged by your very difficult standard, so you better not cause anyone pain, or God will cause it back to you.

        “You say “ Something to keep in mind is that Christians are supposed to obey God over anyone else and that they are supposed to (and many do) go by God’s standard of right, not the world’s”. I can see the societal limitations of never being rude; people will walk all over you. I’m just pointing out that if one hold’s God’s law above human laws, then the subsequent behavior would be to never do things of which you would not want to be on the receiving end.”

        Answered above.

        “Side-note: If you can remember specific passages of Jesus insulting (and not just correcting) others,”

        How many times do I have to tell you to look the word up? Now I’m angry. God imagine how annoying it would be if you told someone they were using a word wrong, and rather than listening just repeatedly used it wrongly over and over. Do I need to say the word that will offend you to describe that feeling?

        “I’d be curious to read more into that.

        I would like to clarify where my assumption for you wanting to spread your message came from.”

        What? Grammar. Even if you fixed it it would still make no sense: what message? And if you’re referring to my religion, what in the world do you think this journal is all about, do you not see the right side of the journal even? What are you talking about?

        “I noticed you are in the process of writing a book (or books), you actively interact with others on a blog explaining your perspective, and you express a sense of accomplishment when you mention saving many lives.”

        It’s not just “my perspective”, it’s God’s, and it’s millions or that of over a billion others, and angels too. To say “your perspective” to avoid saying “the truth” which it sounds like you’re doing, is like someone saying that about someone teaching basic math and algebra correctly or explaining solutions to physical puzzles correctly. I rarely give opinions, and when I do, it’s almost always if not always based on evidence, not pure guessing, because a pure guess is useless.

        “From these findings, many people including myself would infer that you want to spread your message. Maybe you are writing that book just for yourself.”

        What the… why would I write a book for myself? It’s not like I’m making an apple pie to eat. It’s a book, people write books for others unless it’s a diary and never said anything about one.

        “I’m sorry if that appeared too assumptive, but humans are culturally designed to learn through the process of assumption,”

        No “humans” aren’t “DESIGNED” to be stupid, they are MISLEAD by blind and deliberately evil people, and not all humans continue on a path of continuous stupidity and letting people warp their logic whenever they want to.

        “assimilation, and accommodation (see Piaget’s cognitive theory).”

        I’ll wait till judgment day.

        “Later you say “That’s an assumption based on your ignorance of God”. There are thousands of religions with many moral overlaps,”

        You talk as if many religions are unique, you’re talking in ignorance again. A massive number of religions are Christian sects that split off from first. Others are dead religions, because their gods are dead. Many others are silly African ones. The non-Christian ones are hardly if at all moral. And many Christian sects are immoral, the biggest one is very immoral. Hint: children.

        “one example being the golden rule which I mentioned earlier.”

        That’s unique to the Bible. You’re wasting my time by talking to me in your ignorance of not just Christianity, but of basic words like insult. Read first to get a basic understanding, then ask. Don’t put me to task when the info is already in my journal and on the Net.

        “I admit to an ignorance of your God,”

        Our God.

        “but to be clear I have a beautifully complex understanding and deep, fruitful relationship with my god”

        No you don’t.

        “(we love each other to pieces).”

        Where is your evidence? And a false god can also be a demon, and demons hate humans.

        “I hope you can respectfully accept this perspective when addressing me,”

        No, I won’t respect lies and delusions and assumptions and pure guesses and statements without evidence, especially from someone ignorant about religion and logic.

        “even though you believe the Christian God to be truth (to this statement I am expecting the response “but the Christian God IS truth).”

        The Truth hates the False, and no amount of pleading will make them friends.

        “I can respect and accept your perspective,”

        So you claim, without evidence. And what matters is not having the ability, but loving that which is right and hating that which is against God’s laws.

        “I’m only asking for a similar respect in return”

        No, that’s not all you’re asking. You’re asking me to disobey God, and to pander to you.

        “[“Judge not, that ye be not judged” (Matthew 7:1)]”

        You don’t know or understand God, love a demon, yet quote my God to me who knows and understands him? Could you get any dumber and more arrogant? How many times do I have to point out to you the category I told you to read?: DO NOT JUDGE!? Go away if you’re going to ramble.

        “I realize one particular Christian perspective that people should “correct, reject, and be bold to sinners”, but let’s save ourselves the effort and leave the judging of my morality to God alone.”

        Moron: are you my God? Why then are you telling me to disobey him? Because you said, “let’s save” with confidence and smugness and sarcasm? Are you a narcissist? A bigot? Or really immature and dumb? I don’t obey actors like you who think their overweening pride and lofty talk is a replacement for TRUTH AND LOVE AND THE LAW OF A PERFECT BEING WHO GAVE HIS PERFECT SON TO SUFFER AND DIE FOR MILLIONS OF EVIL PEOPLE LIKE YOU. Just think about how stupid what you said is? Imagine if I said, with conceit, “Oh let’s not obey our demon shall we and u shall instead obey my God oh my yes. Jeeves bring me my tea and crumpets please, for I thirst and hunger, oh yes indeed.” Would that babble make me right? No: emotional ranting would not make me right. It’s a logical fallacy called, “Appeal to Emotion.” Why should I obey you’re heart you corrupt heat you idiot and ignoramus? “Let’s obey my heart shall we, not ur God, oh yes indeed,” is what you sound like. So what were you saying about not judging miss let’s leave that up to ur God? See what assumption gets you? And worse: ignoring the obvious: that not only am I the opposite of a moron, but that I know and understand the God you are ignorant of, so how dare you try and teach me about him, you presumptuous idiot. What a time-wasting, thankless, fake and brat. You don’t respect me at all, yet ask for respect. What a hypocrite. This isn’t a movie, Miss Obey My Feelings, not your God, This is “real life”. It’s not a game and we’re not on some stage pretending things are real. Hell will be a real place, where rebellious people like you will burn in pain, nonstop, forever.

        “I’m curious about your statement “There are no “basic human rights” but opportunities, to do good or evil.” Partially this statement alludes me because I do not believe in evil,”

        No really? Someone who doesn’t listen, can’t do unto others yet asks me to, yet can’t even be bothered to see where that COMMAND came from, someone who is so arrogant they smugly think that just giving a little “obey my heart not ur God” quip is worthy of obeying OVER THE PERFECT UNIMAGINABLY LOVING AND HATEFUL CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE? Who are you compared to God to command me?

        “nor was I raised with the notion.”

        If that is so, then you would have become a psychopath, though you talk more like a narcopath: A narcissist with no conscience who uses her patience for evil.

        “People have tried to convince me by explaining “rape is evil” or “murder is evil” (you even said some people’s comments were evil). I am aware the first two transgressions go against the Ten Commandments, but I see all human action as a result of physiological makeup and upbringing.”

        Non-genius: what “physiological makeup and upbringing”. You might as well have said, “a result of things I didn’t bother to understand.” In other words, what do you mean by that? In your mind you just glossed over that like it had nothing to do with intelligence. You’re statement is pointless: physiological makeup, MEANING WHAT? UPBRINGING, MEANING WHAT? THE QUESTION IS: HOW DID THIS DESIGN COME TO BE? HOW DID ANYTHING STRUCTURE IN THIS UNIVERSE COME TO BE? WHAT CAUSE THE FIRST MOTION? WHO TAUGHT THE FIRST HUMAN LANGUAGE AND LAWS AND HOW TO MAKE POISON AND ALL KINDS OF MEDICINES? Do you think some monkey was just mixing up plants one day and then got thousand of others too and thought, “Hey lets keep mixing up plants till we find one that heals blah blah.” Think! Why do ducks protect their eggs! ASK! Do you think ducks say, “Hey by the way ur gonna lay an egg and when u do just keep sitting on it, cuz another duck will come out.” STOP ASSUMING THINGS!

        “I believe all people’s souls are pure,”

        New Age babble. Stop avoiding the words RIGHT AND WRONG, GOOD AND EVIL. The hell do you mean by “pure”? If you don’t believe in evil, what are you talking about “pure” for? “Pure” what you vain idiot? Pure nothing? Dumb. You’re dumb okay?

        “and often become tainted by society and genetic abnormalities (there are no bad infants).”

        A SOUL ISN’T PHYSICAL, SOULS CAN’T BE AFFECTED BY MATTER, GENETICS. And tainted? Idiot: you said there is no evil in your mind, so what “tainted”? And “society”, neat, wow, what else would taint? And why only taint, why not murder, or abuse? See what not being raised with morals turned you into?: An arbitrary, babbling, idiot who can’t make sense.

        “Feel free to debate this.

        Oh no, I refuted you, and am done with you, because you’re probably mentally ill. If you were mentally healthy, you wouldn’t have ignored my good logical advice and kept babbling like a little idiot kid.

        “My main issue with your statement is that you do not believe in human rights.”

        LOOK UP THE WORD “RIGHT” OKAY? And who cares what a mentally ill person has issues with, or a healthy one, what matters is the truth and obeying God in love.

        “Does this mean that you do not recognize your own and others’ rights “given” to us by the government”

        If I said opportunities, the hell would I ignore them for? And government doesn’t give rights IT ACKNOWLEDGES THE SUPPOSED RIGHTS. Use a dictionary and encyclopedia, MORE THAN ONE.

        “(if you are from some country which gives its citizens certain rights)?”

        “Even if you do not believe in them,”

        “do you uphold these human designated laws?”

        I obey God.

        “A man cannot be an island;”

        I don’t care about your vague, pointless, misapplied quotes.

        “part of temporal life is coexisting within society.”

        So live with the Christian one already, no man is an island. Stop pretending they don’t exist, blind hypocrite judge.

        “I understand that your opinions are probably quite different from the opinions”

        IDIOT: FACTS. STOP BEING A BABBLING IDIOT WHO DOESN’T LISTEN, WHO HATES TO LEARN AND ONLY ENJOYS AIRING THE OPINIONS OF THEIR HEART. SHUT UP HYPOCRITE.

        “of those you interact with daily.”

        And shut up with your superfluous babble. Vague moron: merely “interacting” with society doesn’t make it “living” with them, yet according to your vague logic it would, so what are you babbling about me avoiding “society” for you idiot? And dumb fool: READ THE BIBLE MORON, IT SAYS YOU CAN’T AVOID THE WORLD. YOU’RE TELLING ME THAT I’M DOING SOMETHING VERY FEW PEOPLE DO. I’M NOT A HERMIT IDIOT. You’re a super idiot. No wonder you hate seeing me tell off idiots: because instinctively you realize you are one and love the idiots I rebuke. Go away mentally ill criminal: if you don’t like rebukes of evil people, go away. And if there is no such thing as evil: what are you complaining for? Accept me for who I am and shut up.

        “Do you believe that God wants you to treat each person with a certain minimal standard,”

        Minimal what? MORON I SAID I OBEY GOD, WHAT ELSE WOULD I BE OBEYING BUT HIS LAWS? What is “minimal” about that idiot? How am I not obeying a standard you insane moron? Look up “standard”.

        Dear Daniel,
        I took some time to meditate on your response, as it was quite concerning. I had an entire letter of new questions prepared, until I noticed your point at the end claiming I should not reply. In that case, I write this for my own piece of mind, keeping it relatively short and expecting you will not read it.

        I had a dream last night where we met on an airplane. As it was about to crash into the sea, you claimed God was punishing evil. I stared out the window and quietly sang. Your hell sounds truly awful.

        Please forgive me if you think I have not treated you with respect. I do respect you, the same way I respect every creature on this earth.

        Your brother, though unreciprocated,
        Kas Blithe

        P.S. I’m sure no one has ever offered you this before, because it is an absolutely crazy suggestion for you. That being said, I would like to extend an offer to walk in peace with my God. From your blog I’ve noticed you’re not opposed to visiting other churches, so feel free to witness where my understanding originates.

      • April 18, 2011 at 4:34 PM

        I already know about universalism, it’s a logical fallacy, meaning there is absolutely no way it is a workable method to peace with God or at all. If you look for universalism and eternian on google etc., you will see I’ve already written about that repeatedly. Further, listen to yourself, you told me you have no definitive morals, did not even condemn child abuse, but absurdly merely call that “tainted”, so, am I right that your conscience is very little to none, being that child abuse has very little emotional impact on you? Does it delight you? I told you, I am no newbie. I see you read the anti-social personality disorder, and how did that not get across to you? If you read it did you not see the result of raising people without definite, consistent morals, and instead, contradictory ones? Look for my post if you care about truth, on “A Mathematical Like Proof for the True Religion.” I explain clearly, and mathematically, why universalism is a contradiction.

        Does it say anything in my bio here that I wrote a book refuting every possible (in general) argument against Christianity and the Bible? The arguments numbered over 500. I only made one mistake, which was judging to soon where Peter was buried, which doesn’t refute the Bible or Christianity at all. Supposing I carefully analyzed 500 arguments, and carefully sought logical answers, how long do you think that would take me with harassment from stalkers, conartists stealing from me, the Social Security Administration oppressing me, being mistreated by the head pastors of a large church near me, the only one conveniently close by, being harassed by by neighbors, being harassed by the head maintenance man, the apartment staff, the police, having only worked for a few months out of ten years, and my hard drives repeatedly failing, and not having the money to recover the data off any of them, while getting new arguments to list every month, while counseling suicidal people, and coming up with new large books, poems, lyrics and artwork, and my parents mostly working against and/or neglecting me? Can you guess how hard that was and how much thinking I was doing? And I am working on a new version of that book, which I finished, but didn’t publish, and revising. So when you point me to Wikipedia, where I was repeatedly stalked and harassed despite greatly improving some of it’s articles, including ones on religion and science, and almost entirely being shot down for them, a heavily biased encyclopedia which is dominated by atheists and liberals, you are insulting me again. Didn’t I mention in my bio that this journal exists in part as a result of being repeatedly harassed on Wikipedia?

        If you are anti-social, hopefully you only have narcissism disorder, and not the those other two, but, sadly, that would make you a lost cause when it comes to fully logical reasoning concerning truth, which includes the truth about God, the one and only possible one.

      Ad hominems show you to be hateful and illogical, so it you who are close to crazy if you aren’t already. Further, you merely made an insult and gave no evidence of any kind to support your claim. That makes you idiotic and a hypocrite too. Further, why would you be happy if someone was saying crazy things, things that spread illogical thinking and behavior, such as junk science, child abuse, rape, murder and lies? Could it be because you are a psychopath, sociopath or narcissist, besides simply being a stupid mocker? Stop being immoral, illogical and learn what science, truth and evidence means.

        Aww, you can do better than that. Here, I’ll help you out–

        There is no reliable, extra-biblical evidence for the existence of the “Jesus Christ” character. The bible itself can’t really agree on many of the details of this character. At most there might have been some guy, who might have been named Jesus, who might have, among many others, been nailed to a piece of lumber for sedition.

        There, refute my statement. C’mon, man, don’t hold back on me. I’m an atheist pro-choice queer-lovin’ evoloutionist with a contentious streak. Unleash the righteous fury!

    I really enjoy your article on Michio Kaku about being a Christian and then read your “About Me” page and then started reading comments. They are interesting, and I have one request. As you write them and specifically reference the Bible, could you post the verses?

    • November 23, 2011 at 11:18 PM

      Hi, Michio isn’t a Christian at all, you should have made this comment on the page about him, not on my page. I don’t know what verses you’re talking about, you seem to mean verse chapter and numbers, just google what I mention or use books.google or bible.cc to look for similar comments. If you have firefox or chrome you can highlight and drag any pieces of verses I reference to the url field and it will automatically be Googled. Also, I usually don’t reference obscure verses, so whatever I reference here are common place. Just ask a Christian what I’m talking about. I really don’t want to go over my bio repeatedly or the nasty comments I often get.

    Hi Daniel,

    I was led to your site
    https://eternian.wordpress.com/
    while googling for “chuck missler harold camping.”
    I have been browsing through your site for about an hour when I came upon “… will not perish, but have everlasting life.” I had hoped I would see “should not perish, …”

    I intend to re-visit your site for other things I can learn about.
    In the meantime, can you please comment on my statements below?:
    1. I believe the King James is *the* word of God.
    If it is not, where/which is *the* word of God?

    2. I believe it is good to rest on the 7th day of the week.
    The sabbath was made for man. Why do you think God made the sabbath for man?

    3. I believe that observing the sabbath of the land will mean, among other things, less need for fertilizers.

    4. I was born and raised and baptized Roman Catholic. Later on, as an adult I was baptized in a Baptist church. I do not now belong to any organized church but I fervently hope and pray I am a Christian.

    Thank you.

      “I have been browsing through your site for about an hour when I came upon “… will not perish, but have everlasting life.” I had hoped I would see “should not perish, …””

      If I put “will not” it’s because I believed “should not” was wrong. For example in the OT where God says, “You shall not lie” that word “shall” matters because if it had said, “will not” it would mean no one would lie rather than “don’t do this”. In other words God would be saying, “You won’t/can’t lie” because he wills it, but that’s not what he meant. The same thing with the perish verse, Jesus wasn’t saying, “You might not perish” he was saying you won’t, ever. At least that’s what he meant. But if in old English it says should, then perhaps it has the same meaning but which is not longer conveyed in modern English, and that’s the language we speak in general today, with Old English mainly used for poetic reasons or emphasis, like if I said, “That is thee drink to get.”

      As for the King James the translators themselves said they just did the best job they could and that it wasn’t perfect. There’s definite flaws in it despite what some claim and despite their seemingly rational arguments. If it were perfect it would simply state it is in the English, like God saying, “This translation is perfect” or he’d imply it somehow, that’s my opinion at least. If those people were inspired when translating, we’d know it, they would never have been allowed by God to say, “This isn’t perfect” without him having them retract the statement. Remember, he’s not the author of confusion. Though someone might argue, “How do you know Esther is God’s word?” I’ve shown that that argument fails because Esther has strong clues that it’s God’s word, besides that, it’s not necessary to believe that it is God’s word to be saved, and apparently not other various books. However, what isn’t recommended is stating factually that certain books like Esther aren’t God’s word, because you definitely cannot know that and risk coming under the curse that Revelation mentions, which might only apply to that book, but it’s a big risk tampering with his word by declaring some to be his word and some to not if it’s been accepted for thousands of years as being God’s word. It’s not the same with the apocrypha because the only people who accept that as God’s word are very obscure people with no great standing and Catholics, which are a polytheistic cult, idolators.

      “I believe the King James is *the* word of God. If it is not, where/which is *the* word of God?”

      You mean “thee”? Just kidding. I do to, but so is any good translation. If someone translated a book you wrote and got ten non-critical sentences wrong, it would still be your word. For example if the main story was about how God changed your life, and you mentioned how on the way to becoming a Christian you walked past some brown dogs while going to find a Bible, and that’s all you said of that, and some Japanese person translated that as you walking past a brick restaurant, that wouldn’t mean the entire book was corrupt and untrustworthy. It would be, “most your word,” and metaphorically would just be “your word.” It’s understood, or supposed to be for people with common sense that when you say, “This is God’s word” of some translation, that you don’t mean it’s perfectly translated. What is meant is that in general it is, but you still have to use judgment to determine whether or not the correctness of the translation of verses that haven’t been pondered over as much as the main ones. For example it’s unlikely that a professional translation of the Bible will have John 3:16 translated wrong, because it’s a verse that deals with how to be saved, rather than some verse that just mentions some inconsequential detail like, “Jesus turn to the right to talk to Mary” and no other parts of the Bible mention Jesus turning to talk to her, so that there’s no contradiction possible. A verse like that wouldn’t matter and so no one would be as likely to notice if it got translated wrong, like, “Jesus leaned to the left” as opposed to John 3:16 being translated as, “Whoever believes in me might not perish.” meaning, “You might, or might not whether you trust in me or not.” That would cause a controversy everywhere and would bring into question whether or not the translator/s knew what they were talking about or not, and some might even say they had a demon for doing that. So, verses that aren’t as important as others need to be studied more closely than those that have passed the test repeatedly. Even certain atheist scholars don’t dispute certain translations of verses, and that’s more evidence a verse has been reliably translated.

      So, the King James is the word of God in Old English, and modern ones are his word in Modern English, and using such and such groups preference of synonyms or synonyms grammar. Look at this way if you’re still not sure: if someone translated the ancient Greek into Old English, and did it well enough so a person could be saved, and you, a Christian knew that, and a Greek person used Google Translate to ask you, “Which Bible is God’s word, version X of the Hebrew, version y of the Hebrew, the Greek translation of the Old Testament, or which version of the X Hebrew, the one in which such and verse says burden or the one that says weight or the one that says blessing, or is it the Greek or the Old English?” How would you answer? Of course you wouldn’t say, “The Greek Bibles you can understand aren’t God’s word, nor are the Hebrew variations, not are the ones that don’t include the OT,” no you’d say they are all God’s word in the language they are in (in general). And as for which variation of some verse is right, or whether or not Esther should have been included, God will let us know eventually. I’m sure Jesus will answer such questions during his thousand year reign. It would be very odd if he was silent and just sat there watching and only once every few decades beating someone for disobeying him and then sitting back down again. That wouldn’t fit his personality.

      “I believe it is good to rest on the 7th day of the week.
      The sabbath was made for man. Why do you think God made the sabbath for man?”

      Paul forbade us to argue about holy days as well as drinking alcohol. If you believe it’s right than it’s right for you, if you believe it doesn’t matter, don’t argue about it and don’t offend people over it (not that you do that). That’s what Paul taught. Imagine if it were a tradition to observe the day of the sacrifice of Jepthah’s daughter, or the day Mary washed Yeshuah’s/Jesus’ feet with her tears in some culture or among all Christians, even fasting on that day, and it had been done for 1000 years, and then some Christian, or worse, a great Christian leader of Christians that everyone held as a fine example of a Christian, on worldwide TV, starts eating on one of those days, and even said, “These days don’t matter.” Everyone would be shocked. Some might wonder if he was saved and it would provoke everyone to wonder if Christianity was the true religion and whether or not they themselves were saved. Atheists would have a party over that, especially if Christians started arguing over and splitting up because of it. Everyone but enemies of God would be distressed. It’s similar to Paul saying not to make a big argument out of how short or long a man or woman’s hair is. Because what matters first is salvation and peace, and how long your hair is shouldn’t be something to break a family apart, or what color your shirt is (unless there’s a good chance it’s going to attract trouble, like some gang forbidding anyone to wear red shirts and a church is nearby makes the bad decision to wear red to defy them; that might bring harm on them and the gang members that they are supposed to try to lead to Christ and refute by their good behavior).

      “I believe that observing the sabbath of the land will mean, among other things, less need for fertilizers.”

      I’ve never heard of such a law. There are years-long Sabbaths and I know God said so the land could have rest, but he was talking about that as something he would force on Israel as punishment for their sins. I believe he was using a figure of speech when saying he would give the land rest, because he was saying that in relation to the “work” (sinful things) the Israelites did on it. Remember God used the Sabbath day as an example/symbol/reminder of how we are not to work for our salvation, and that we are going enter into an eternal rest (peace that requires no work on our part to keep and in which we will no longer feel pain nor distress) so it’s the most reasonable interpretation of the years-long-sabbaths as being greater reminders to Israel because of their years-long works of defiance and for not even keeping the one day Sabbath. It’s also God reminding us of his eye-for-an-eye justice, that if you spend years rebelling against him, he will punish you for years or in some great way before yo you die. For example it could be said that David not only lost a son because of his theft of another man’s wife, but that God also caused Solomon to be a failed king because of that. It wasn’t till 200 years later I think that Ezekiel said sons would suffer for their own sins and be blessed for their own goodness.

      “I do not now belong to any organized church”

      Me neither, but I wish I did. Disability and income problems are in the way. It’s more accurate to say that you aren’t a member of a local or national church. Or else you’d be leaving open the possibility that you belong to a disorganized church, and what would that be? Messy Christians? Maybe I’m a church of one then.

      “Have you heard of Richard Wurmbrand? If so, can you comment about him?”

      No. And after spending a long while looking (one of the reasons it took me long to reply) I can’t find anything about his believes other than that we should all respect Scripture and that Jesus was necessary for our salvation. I can’t find anything about his doctrine or theology and he seems somewhat obscure, perhaps because he didn’t come up with anything revolutionary, but stood out because of his severe persecution by people I’m guessing were atheists.

    Hi there mate.
    I just found this link through your youtube channel and i hope you dont mind me visiting.
    Im still on the fence about God, well, I’ve always beleived in something bigger than ourselves but the bible just dosent seem to make a whiole lot of sense to me. Maybe it was my upbringing and maybe not.
    Im not out to judge it though, i just cant relate to alot of what it says.
    It was written so long ago by people who where far less advanced than us in many aspects of life, not just technological but also in the structure of there society.
    We dont have live killing’s in the street, or torture as punishment (at least not in public as far as we know) And people weere alot poorer, i mean the average wage would have probably been equivialent to (and im only guessing here) about $5 dollars a week in todays economic crisis.
    So, as i said, im just hard pressed to see eye to eye with any church when they seem to be telling the world that we should follow the ways of the ancient society!

    • January 10, 2012 at 3:21 AM

      matt, you are mistaken when you say, “It was written so long ago by people who where far less advanced than us in many aspectsess of life…“. The Bible was written over a period of 6000-4000 years, so when you say “by people” you’re lumping in “people” as if they were all in the same situation. That would be like saying, “I’m an Arab, and the Americans just aren’t as advanced us Arabs.” with a 7th century mindset, as if Americans have stayed the same for the past 250 years, as if they were all the same, and as if George Washington and the other ysycolonists just grew out of the ground suddenly when America became independent.

      Your statement shows major ignorance of history, God, and a lack of common sense. 1) The obvious: the Bible claims to be written by God, and if you study it carefully, it can easily be concluded that it was. So for you to pull a switcheroo and say: “it was less advanced people talking” as if they invented it, is something many little Sunday school kids would know not to say because it makes no sense. If God is orchestrating the talking, should you then reply, “But they couldn’t make high quality pornos like we can now and cool X-men movies, and fatten themselves up really fast with Twinkies. It’s not about that, it’s about who made us, why, our weakness, our inability to live in peace forever without God, and the result of disobeying God. Not, “How to make the fastest computers and how to breed the biggest cow.” 2) Notice any pyramids lately? Can you build one? Do you know anyone who can? That’s in your face hint one that you don’t know history. http://s8int.com. Can you even build a Stone Henge? Can you build a wall made of irregular stones fitted together like a jigsaw puzzle? Or how about build a small fortress of stones melted together? All ancient work, not modern. Further, how long has Egypt existed? How about Greece? How long has America comparison existed? Comparing “the modern world” to 6,500 years of time that you don’t have a clue about, or rather ignore obvious things about, is… are you smart enough to fill in the blank? 3) You obviously barely read the Bible and didn’t even study what others say about it, otherwise you wouldn’t be talking about “I can’t relate”, if it were that unrelatable it wouldn’t be the world’s most popular book since 200 AD and almost everywhere you go, even in “primitive” places. 4) So what if you can’t relate to it? Your point? Why do you make judgments before studying and in ignorance? Is that intelligent? That’s like you hearing about some foreign country, not knowing much about it other than that there’s lots of people who “make food and had wars” and then you go and make the silly comment, “Well I can’t relate to that.” So, what’s the significance of your statement other than that you are ignorant? Before you talk, make sure you have a point, otherwise you risk irritating and annoying and angering people with what they will consider a waste of their time due to carelessness on your part, and even the mentally ill do not like to have their time wasted.

      And what about there being no torture and murder in public, on the streets? Again: do you pay attention at all to the news, even your local news? Ever listen to the radio or watch Youtube? You haven’t heard anything about shootings in the streets, gang rapes in public, or just one on one rape, or public executions, electric chairs, countries in turmoil with millions of people being forced out and starved to death, Muslims going around blowing themselves up, their own children, beating people in public, public lashings and stonings, battles, wars, child abuse and neglect in front of neighbors. Hello, wake up matt! You talk as if you are living on some hidden island in a little village with riches galore and that that is all there is of “we” and “the world”. But even islanders in remote islands know the world is chaotic, not some perfect place of peace!

      On top of all that, you miss the most obvious of all: billions of people have been living by the various ancient ways since the ancient ways existed, it hasn’t stopped. Yet you think that because YOU think, that there are some significantly new laws and technology and methods of economy, that there’s been some significant change that makes “ancient ways” obsolete, like, how to make Twinkies, or how to make a longer-lasting shovel. No, those things don’t make obsolete, “Do not bear false testimony” “Do not murder” and the Bible also forbids incest. It’s still illegal to lie in court, still illegal to murder in most countries, and incest is still mostly shunned, but as you haven’t noticed, incredibly(!) the world is getting worse, much worse, because despite the obvious things that I am pointing out to you, it ignores and goes against what is clearly good. Those are ancient laws that everyone knows are still illegal, except people like you, whom Satan heavily blinds (unless you are just joking with me). Even evil know such things are wrong, yet they still lie. So tell me how the ancient way of Christ (not “ways”), who promoted Moses, and who got his laws from angels and God, of the Reformed Christians who obey the Bible are preventing them from getting eternal peace. We of the Reformed Church aren’t practicing the ancient ways so that we can live for eating Twinkies or “advanced economy methods” that you know nothing about, we live to please God because in return he pleases us for doing so. And you are not part of us “we people”. You’re on the outside of our church, glancing in and saying, “Well that’s strange to me!” You are blind to the most extremely obvious things because you don’t have the patience to do anything but glance and then say, “I feel…”

      You also missed this: you said you can’t relate to people who don’t have faith in, don’t trust, don’t obey, God? Matt? Did you even bother reading the first pages of the Bible? Or the last book, which everyone finds to be the most interesting? It’s talking about people like you, all throughout the Bible, so that you can’t relate, is your fault, because you’re glancing and not making a good effort to understand it. How can you have any excuse for not typing into the oh so “advanced” Google, so convenient, “What is the Bible about” and learning? Is that really so hard? What about just asking a Christian in some church or one you know nearby, or a few to get a better understanding? Instead you jumped to conclusions.

      And matt, if you can’t even spell aspects right, which you spelled as “aspectsess” even though our advanced browsers have built in spell checkers, so that you aren’t even take advantage of “our many advances”, what are you boasting about them for? Are you as skilled in writing as an ancient scribe from Babylon or Sumeria? I’m more impressed by just the look of what I’ve seen them write then your small and careless comment made easily with a keyboard that I doubt you invented and doubt you would know how to build. When you say “as advanced as us”, don’t speak of “us” as if you were apart of that and just as wise as a theologian, logician and psychologist like me or some other highly skilled person. Just because you live in the same time as them, doesn’t make you as intelligent, wise or skilled as them. The way you reason is lazy, empty, pointless, confused and arrogant. I hope you take to heart the logic I’ve taught you here, and study and listen carefully, with prayer to the God of the Bible for his wisdom so that you will no longer be trapped by the confusion Satan blankets the world with.

    Well youv’e put me off becoming a christian that’s for sure.
    If all christians are as arrogant and pig headed as you then i think i’ll stay well away.
    I came to this sight with an opinion and a chance to talk to someone who might be able to have a friendly chat with me about religion and the bible and perhaps set me straight in the areas that im wrong in.

    Instead i get drawn and quartered, then burnt at the stake!!

    But you christians know all about burning at the stake dont you!

    I cant beleive you even had such petty things to point out about my spelling! you rerally are a pothetic and arrogant narcissistic person that obviously beleives that you are THE most intelligent person on earth and if we are not up to your standard’s then we are not worth talking politely too!
    You sir, are an common asshole, that is all.

    And as far as reading the bible.
    I have to admit that i havent read much, neither have alot of christians and thats a fact. Its the worlds number 1 best seller, yet least read book of all time, but i dont need a book that says “I am the truth, therefore that is my evidence for being the truth” It’s insulting to “my” level of intelligence, which is clearly not up to your’s so i guess that makes the arguement mute with you dose’t it?

    Another thing! About the judgements i supposedly made!
    People had a different structure to there society back then? people were poorer? These aren’t judgements, they facts, as clear as day, facts of history! (which you obviously know nothing about!)
    If this is a judgement in your eyes,Then i would hate to see how you “judge” your appearance in the mirror every morning!

    Also, after reading some of the comments you left to other people on your site i have to agree with most of them. You seem like a very hate filled, egotistical, self centred,judgemental, arrogant bastard (which would be very un-christian of you)
    I dont care how many people you claim to have shown jesus to, or how many people you claim to have stopped from commiting suicide.
    You clearly have no real people skills and i could not imagine you listening to ANY ONE with thoughts of suicide and keeping yourself from telling them, that they are weak and pothetic and if there not in gods house then they should kill themselves anyway!.
    You really are not suited to the job of “counsillor” Maybe “Cyber bully” or “complete and utter pyshcotic keyboard warrior” is more fitting to your style.
    And what the hell is a logician?
    I thought logician’s only existed in fantasy novels like “The lord of the rings” or “The bible”

    Moron….

    Here’s a tip, go get some counselling yourself, you clearly need it.

    Maybe you should check your own punctuation and spelling before you berate people with theres. After all, your the one that said this,
    “When you say “as advanced as us”, don’t speak of “us” as if you were apart of that and just as wise as a theologian, logician and psychologist like me or some other highly skilled person.”

    I would have expected more from someone as you just described.

    Once again i sign off by reminding you that you are…a moron. A self obsessed, arrogant, people hating, narcissistic moron.

    Goodbye.

    I wish nothing but happiness for you on your holier than thou, self righteous, angry quest for salvation.

    Hi I had a question.You mentioned about “saving many”. I assume you are saved, Praise God! I am a little confused. You are a saved and soulwinning Calvinist?. A true red blooded John Calvin follower does not know they are saved (one of the elect) John Calvin never had a true conversion testimonies.

    Chris

    • February 15, 2012 at 7:21 PM

      I have no idea what you are talking about a Calvinist not being able to know they are saved. That’s nonsensical since Calvin taught the opposite. I don’t know why you would come up with the exact opposite of Reformed doctrine, which is that you can know if you are saved, unlike Catholics and other Christian cults like the Mormons and quasi-cultic Assembly of God, who teach you can only be in the process of being saved till death, and then saved after. Both you and they have provided no explanation as to why you believe what you do. And what do you mean by “red-blooded”? You’re using nonsensical terminology that has nothing to do with Calvin’s doctrine.

      As for if I’m a Calvinist, no, I don’t follow Calvin, otherwise I’d be a cultist; I follow Christ. Calvin just did a good job showing how salvation works to a great degree. Whether Calvin got saved or not I don’t know, but that he understood how salvation worked, is a good sign, being that most Christians don’t understand, which is an indication of spiritual blindness, a state in which people are in before being saved. Calvin did say some things that I thought were suspicious, for example he used very pretentious speech at one time concerning baptism, which combined with other bad actions of his, that seem paranoid and immature, are indicative of narcissism disorder, a permanent evil mindset, which is not possible for a saved Christian to have. But it was so long ago and the documentation scant, so, I’ll just have to wait to see what happens on Judgment Day.

      Also, I have no idea why you said that Calvin had no true c. testimonies, since I’ve not read or heard everything he ever said, and neither have you, so you cannot say, “He never said such and such” if you weren’t around to hear all that he said. Further, why should someone have a recorded testimony? Does the Bible say you must have a recorded testimony and that if no one reads or hears it that that determines whether you are saved or not? It seems you don’t understand how salvation works nor understand what Calvinism is. You should read my page (linked above) on how to be saved and read on Theopedia about Calvin.

    If you want people to stop mistaking you for a calvinist, perhaps you might rewrite the description under your blog title?

    They’re not insulting you (though you clearly take it that way), they’re taking you at your word. You describe yourself as a calvinist so people think you are one.

    • February 16, 2012 at 1:23 PM

      Shannon, where did I say to the last commenter, “You’re insulting me”, liar? I told you to stop harassing me. Once again you’re being a one-sided fault-finder whose sided with someone who I clearly pointed out doesn’t know what he’s talking about. So, you’ve sided with someone who doesn’t know what Calvinism is. And you don’t even explain what is wrong with my title. Where does it say, “I’m a Calvinist”? Stop bothering me already. And who is “they’re”? So you have read every single comment on my journal!? Sweeping generalizations much, and stupid ones? What idiot doesn’t know that fundamentalist Christians aren’t the most insulted group of all Christians, insulted every hour? It happens in your own forum you stupid lying insulting hypocrite. Further moron, you seriously can’t see my reply to Gorgeoustxwoman? And once again: do you seriously think I will publish mere insults? So you cannot imagine, miss “We pagans are the persecuted ones” that I’ve gotten many mere insult comments, and mere babble left as an insult, and that I don’t publish them because that’s all they are? You couldn’t guess that “Miss No One Who Ever Talks To You Insults You and By the Way Your Religion Isn’t Good (It’s Evil)”? Everyone time you talk “Shannon” you show what an evil mentally ill person you are. Your comments are always useless and you always show you’re not paying attention carefully to anything that ANYONE says. Come up with the self-control to leave me alone when I tell you to at least.

    February 18, 2012 at 7:07 AM

    In a message to me on my blog and in an email you asked, ‘Who said I was a Calvinist?”.

    You got very offended (I have the messages still to prove this, and to prove that you claimed to no longer be a Calvinist), and my comment was meant to help you. If you don’t want people to think you follow Calvin, it is simple logic to remove the word from your description.

    I am not only referring to your comments here, but long, rambling messages you left on my blog and in my email that say ‘I am not a Calvinist’.

    Still taking everything as an attack, I see, and still painfully forgetful concerning things you have said here and on other blogs. You claim my comments are useless then write long responses with little quotes about what you think I meant when I said something, rather than addressing what was actually said. It must suck to be you and be ever on the defensive, and so utterly, painfully stupid on top of all that.

    @ Matt:

    The type of interaction you’ve had here is how I know he’s lying when he says he’s lead so many people to christ. No one wants to follow a person who treats them like garbage, and really that’s the only way he has of interacting with people. The boy knows no kindness at all.
    He only put up the claim about his supposed evagelism skills because a year ago I told him my mother has brought people to christ with her excellent people skills, kindness and knowledge of scripture, so now he feels as if it’s a competition. His ‘about’ page changed to include his new claims within a day or two.

    In the event that you see this before he erases it then misrepresents what I said, feel free to get in touch with me. Click on the icon, to get my email. If you’re still interested in christianity and want to talk to someone who can speak to you with love and respect, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with my mom.

  17. March 18, 2012 at 11:55 AM

    This my reply to an ignorant person who used my contact page to leave me comment (now that I think about it I should prevent comments from being left there):

    From “thunderbeast“, submitted on 2012/03/18 at 10:22 AM

    My response:

    “I have an open mind and no party affiliation. I started to read some of your articles and no matter how I try to justify you opinions I am lead to the conclusion you are a right wing radical of the Republican Party.”

    Was all I read. I can tell you’re ignorant and impatient. I’ll explain to you the stupidity of your first statement:

    1) I have an open mind and no party affiliation.

    That makes no point because an open mind is just as bad as a closed mind depending on what you mean: open as in: you’re gullible? As in, you’re willing to believe even what is common sense irrational and evil? You’re simply, ignorant. You don’t analyze for logical errors in your beliefs, and if you do, you have massive blind spots for lack of knowledge on how to reason correctly, and most likely, Satan is causing you to repeatedly forget the obvious.

    2) So what if you are affiliated with a “party”? It’s the same as open/close mindedness. It all depends on if you have right or wrong beliefs. If you’re a part of a good party, great, not “must be biased!” automatically. Rather you’re showing bias just with a statement like that.

    3) “I started to read some of your articles and no matter how I try to justify you opinions”

    4) You “started” but didn’t finish. So you’ve argued without listening properly. If that’s what you meant, that is a major error. The Bible says, “He who argues before listening: that is his shame and folly.”

    5) You tried to justify my “opinions”? Who said they were opinions? You again automatically showed you were biased from the start, and were as biased as a skeptic. You don’t start out (unless you already know the facts somehow) thinking, “This is opinions not facts” rather you have a neutral mindset, an OPEN mindset. So just the opposite of what you stated, you have a CLOSED mind. But again, not bad automatically so long as you’re closed to what you know already to be not rational. It’s also a baby-term so to speak to say open/closed minded, and I’ve explained why, but more explanation: it’s something ignorants often use, especially youths and New Agers, because they don’t realize the errant way in which they use those terms. It would show more wisdom if you said, “I’m willing to listen to what is rational,” now that, is specific and logical. Not, “open to anything! you should be too!” It makes sense though that you would simply say “opinions” because it matches your “be open to anything” mindset, in which anything and everything can be true! Meaning, you don’t believe in absolute truth, in FACTS, or have a poor ability to distinguish between them, hence your “open”, vague, muddy language.
    But, THERE ARE FACTS, there is ABSOLUTE TRUTH. Remember that and accept it and stop mixing up the word “opinion” with “facts”. They are not the same words and mean different things. They are not synonyms in at all, but are in fact used to distinguish truth from possible non-truth.

    6) And now this is my opinion: Due to your forgetfulness concerning those two words, you made what IN THE CONTEXT THAT YOU USED IT, would be nonsensical: trying to justify opinions. Sure, you can justify an opinion if you truly are knowledgeable and wise in whatever you’re trying to justify it in. Like how in the Bible, Paul tried to justify his opinion on when to stay single or marry, but in the way you meant it, with your poor understanding, you meant APART FROM FACTS. Paul was not trying to justify his opinions apart from the facts.

    7) “I am lead to the conclusion you are a right wing radical of the Republican Party.”

    Is that your OPINION or is that A FACT?

    8) Again: who cares? Why would I listen to an ignorant who can’t tell the difference between facts and opinions unless you repeatedly struggle to remind him? And you are VERY stupid, no offense, because you clearly barely read anything I said, otherwise you would have known I’ve got nothing to do with them. Talk about “not even wrong”!

    9) You didn’t read well and are ignorant, so you’re way off. You didn’t bother reading much apparently and clearly to me you know little about religion. You’re a confused and ignorant person who makes assumptions in their impatience and arrogance and as a result, remain ignorant and confused. The Bible says to avoid arguments of ignorance, and you’re not even knowledgeable of basic Sunday School 101 facts. I’m not repeating what’s already all over my journal and in comments, that can be searched for too, and what’s already all over the Internet, and already in libraries and book stores and which you can ask from various pastors around you, of whom there are at least a million, spread out all over the world, usually in the most populated areas.

    10) “On article that made this obvious was you writings on brainwashing.”

    What article? You left this comment on the contact page, open-minded “you writings” genius. You’ve also committed logical fallacies by that statement: Appeal to Obviousness when there is nothing obvious to appeal to. Second: what “writings on brainwashing”?! That is a poor way to state “you’re brainwashed writings” if that’s what you meant, and either indicates English is not your native language, or that you are not only severely lacking in common sense, wisdom and knowledge, but logically then, a stupid person who can’t properly get his point across without having to be questioned on every other thing he says to figure it out! Is that a person who should be trying to teach me, who is the opposite of that?

    And here’s some evidence of your scatter-mindedness: You left this comment on my contact page, not my about me page and not emailing me. Would anyone be wrong to call you “stupid” and disorganized?

    11) You made yet another logical error, Appeal to Extremeness. What’s extremeness have to do with anything? Is heat bad if it’s too hot? Is it immoral and illogical? Yet you talk about “brainwashing” to me!? Look who is talking Mr. That’s Extreme, Extreme Is Bad.

    If you’re carefully read all of my reply you to, can you then figure out what you sound like to me, what conclusion that I am lead to?:

    You’re a New Ager who doesn’t believe in “organized” religion because you don’t know the meanings of words well, and so poorly, that your sentences come out illogically and confusingly and poorly stated, and as such, you have no business teaching anyone about morality, facts, or even opinions. You have little excuse for being ignorant. And should that offend you when you did the same to my works? If you believe in magic karma, “back at you, you get what you put out.” But I believe in the truthful logical Bible: That which a man reaps, he sows. Though God is often merciful, and so does not always allow full punishment to come on a man who does wrong, or right away.

    The rest of your rant is ignored, not even read.

    “Trust in Yahweh with all your heart; don’t lean not on your own understanding.” – King Solomon’s Proverbs

    Update: After reading the first sentence of Covey’s (yes, supposed name) second comment, still on the Contact page, and ignoring the rest, and a third one, starting off with “I have just received several emails for one person who is demanding my attentions,” I can safely say this is a person to ignore.

    • August 26, 2012 at 9:04 PM

      Wow, a real positive comment, impossible. I was even looking for some reason, like your email to not read this, figuring it would be just another “I appreciate that you are a Christian, but you call atheists morons, this isn’t good” or some evil remark.

Evolutionists use failed hypocritical baseless arguments, typical ones are, “show me your God”, “how can you prove design?” (if you’re in a house filled with art you can’t prove design?), “Prove unicorns exist”, “It’s scientifically proven”, “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” (and they often confuse evidence with proof), they ignore what refutes evolution, like giants (there are even photos of giant skeletons), ooparts, sea fossils everywhere including on mountains). What atheists do is come up with baseless claims to substitute for the well proven Bible’s claims, instead of the Flood, it was asteroids, instead of man with dinosaurs, with was dinosaurs first then men, instead of giants, it was just monkeys turning into humans about 5 or 6 feet tall. They also play the “I can’t see anything” game: if they see evidence for Noah’s Ark, they ignore it, if they see photos of giants, there mind blurs over and they go watch an anime cartoon or have fun harassing Christians, they also play the broken record game. They are controlled by Satan, and no evidence is ever good enough for them. One atheist even said she wouldn’t believe in God even if he showed himself to her (which is a stupid assumption) but just shows the Bible true when it says, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no god'”. Fool as maybe you already know, means “very evil person”. They immoral, and deliberately lie to protect their hurt inside, their pride, and for some, to safe guard their business, which is or they feel is reliant on an evolution-faith front. Remember, “The root of all evil is the love of money.” Just as the ancient Greeks and Romans made money off their idols, atheists and heretics pedal their fossil replicas, videos, dinosaur movies, science-actor idols (movie stars/celebs), and porn. They justify porn and other immoral things they produce by making it appear as if God doesn’t care or doesn’t exist and that we’re simply creatures that “evolved”. It’s atheists that need to come up with extraordinary evidence that the massive amount of Biblical archeology and prophecies are wrong, not Christians that need to disprove an absurd claim that billions of years ago by chance, life magically came into existence and turned into humans. Just how did life and could life, “start by chance”? They can’t say, just pretend. That is why they are always making and supporting fake contradictory news articles, like, “Star seen forming from gas” but in the body article it says, “Still waiting for conclusive evidence using a higher resolution telescope” (and even if they did a snap shot of gas doesn’t prove anything, it’s stupid.)

      Apparently you didn’t know that little angry boys and girls who don’t know much about Christians let alone religion start off sentences like that right before they are about to bash a type of Christian in ignorance that they don’t like. Yeah, I deleted whatever came after that. I’m not reading angry baby whiner trash. God bless you Mr. “so Christian” whatever the Hell that meant. Learn before bashing what you don’t understand, listen before arguing. “Avoid arguments of ignorance” the apostle Paul. Here’s a clue for ya: READ, stop skimming and assuming you know everything just because you read a little, stop basing your beliefs based on a few things you read, or building a tall wall of beliefs, even worse, it’ll fall on your head when it gets too big. “Pride comes before a fall” – King Solomon.

      If you’re so wise, why don’t you refute the many things I write, rather than making a little pot shot on my about me page? G, could it have been a logical fallacy called ad hominem, a personal attack? G, so hard to figure out.

    Hi, I just came across your blog. I am a newly Reformed Christian. I am a member of a Grace Community Church church plant. The main GCC is in San Antonio,Texas. Our pastor is Tim Conway. A good website that has great sound teaching from our church is illbehonest.com. Maybe you have heard of it. Well I have bookmarked your blog and I hope to find some good edifying things on here. Nice to meet you. -Kathleen B.

    • December 27, 2013 at 7:35 PM

      No I’ve not heard of it, thanks for the encouragement. Ironically I read one first that came after yours from a supposed Christian that left me an indirectly discouraging message and me replying to her asking why no Christians ever show me support for this massive blog, specially the links above it (at least).

        December 27, 2013 at 7:40 PM

        I’ve found that people get quite upset when they first hear of the doctrines of grace. I mean I don’t know exactly all the reasons people on here are upset with you but I’ve gotten my fair share of people arguing with me about them. I myself got quite angry in the beginning too but after studying my bible God showed me His grace and allowed me to see the truth thus pulling me out of the false church and after being churchless for two yrs providentially put me in a true church from a church plant. Praise God!

      • December 27, 2013 at 8:30 PM

        Well, she seemed to be a Christian, whether saved or not I don’t know. I found her message insulting, because she was inconsiderate about this being a massive blog, and criticizing me as some people do now and then for calling people “names”. I resent when people do that because I get few praises or follows, very few, like never almost, and they do it over old comments and not bothering to notice that some people commenting to me are being plainly malicious or are mentally ill but still an evil person. For example that comment I mentioned at first says,

        “Why do you call people names when they don’t agree with you? It feels like your bitter or angry? I’m a Christian who stumbled onto your site and I am having a hard time taking it seriously because of the way you respond to others. It doesn’t seem loving or done with a gentle spirit. As Christians we are told to love our neighbor and our enemy and to show mercy. And if we need to correct, to be gentle in doing so as to show Christ character of love and patience.
        Proverbs 15:1

        “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

        Yours
        Sarah”

        Now I FEEL, like “Why won’t other reformed Christians” if there are any that come to my blog, and it seems there must be if I get 390-500 hits a day, follow me, praise me for some article or “like” something or other? Why instead must they find some fault, even if it’s a new comment where I call some malicious atheist or rude person who bashes me with a reply like they read some article with sincere care for truth, but clearly haven’t from their reply? It doesn’t matter if I point out some contradiction on whatever, they bash me anyway as if I’m the stupid one who can’t see. And yet someone pops up and tells me I’m unloving for calling a person what they are for wasting my times with their mean comment. Yes the Bible says a gentle answer can break a bone, but it also says to rebuke a fool. If someone spiritually headbutts me, I may say God bless you if I don’t think a rebuke will do any good, or may be silent so their evil comment, and useless, doesn’t appear in the comments. There’s over 800 comments I haven’t approved. Some are from people who seem to be strongly mentally ill.

      i’m not very good at all, but mountains of wicked people throughout my life tormenting me are in part to blame for my far from perfect behavior. i hope, if I’m going to hell, that God agrees, and so my punishment won’t be severe.

    Dear Knight,

    The Multiverse theory, like religion, is a philosophical one currently and will remain so until we have made more progress in both technology and philosophy. I saw your question in the introduction above and felt impelled to offer a basic overview of the Many-Worlds Interpretation Multiverse theory. Please accept that by using the word “basic” I intend only to show my own utter lack of training in physics and imply no rudeness.

    Probably everyone has heard of “Schrödinger’s Cat”, a philosophical puzzle designed only to incorporate quantum mechanics to everyday life. As a quick refresher, all should remember that quantum mechanics, unlike Multiverse theory, is a precise and measureable discipline containing many hard facts. Simply put, Newtonian physics involves itself with physical laws involving objects on the macroscopic scale (approximately visible to the naked human eye) whereas quantum mechanics involves itself with much smaller objects, in fact, with objects smaller than the microscopic scale. It’s interesting to consider that Newtonian physics has been a discipline since the ancient Greeks, doubtless because of its fundamental importance. Quantum mechanics however is much newer! While the impetus for these discoveries came from 17th century and later studies into the nature of light, the first true quantum mechanics was described no sooner than the early 20th century. The technology to “see” atomic and subatomic phenomena simply didn’t exist before then!

    Schrödinger’s Cat illustrates what a 20th century physicist first proposed as the Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum physics. Whereas prior to the hypothesis the universe had always been viewed as a single unfolding history, with events depending on prior events that occurred specifically, the Many-Worlds Interpretation observes reality as having a tree-like structure with infinite branches so that every possibility can unfold.

    In example simply put, here is one of almost infinite examples (almost-infinite only because I like all people have a finite life!): I made a choice when I selected a wife. From this choice-resulting-in-action, a unique young man was later created from our combined genetic material and had his mother been any other woman he would not have been precisely the young man he is today. This means that our universe will now unfold in a specific way that recognizes his existence whereas with a different mother (or father) he would demonstrably be a different person – with a different unfolding universe! .

    Respectfully, you have done this also. The experiences that make you the Knight that moves and feels as you do are immutable and have endless repercussions that have and will continue to have demonstrable influence on the unfolding of this universe we exist in.

    The same truism is true of all people-in fact of all objects in the universe.

    The difference may be slight or great. Most of us will not affect world history but imagine a world in which Isaac Newton died at birth (he almost did, we know). Respectfully, imagine a world with no Jesus or Muhammad or Siddhartha, without one or all. Then, to better realize the brilliance of Many-Worlds Interpretation, realize that a world without that nameless (to you or I) woman you noticed walking by one day because of her interesting fashion or make-up, or that nameless man who sold you your groceries when you purchased them last week. Or that person with the interesting opinion. Or the person who was so cruel to the homeless person-or the one who was so kind. Any one of those men (we’ll call him Seumas) may become headline news tomorrow, or may not. Thus a future may unfold that has Seumas becoming the next Martin Cooper (inventor of the cell phone), or, if Seumas suffers a fatal heart attack tonight, a different future will unfold that leaves us without the next cell phone-level discovery. The Many-Worlds Interpretation (a hypothesis) suggests that one universe will unfold with Seumas in it and another without him. From a precise and specific moment it will bud off from the one existing in time prior, with one bud leading to one future and another leading to another. In fact millions of futures will unfold at every moment and each leads to an entirely different universe. Each universe is irrevocably separate from each other because an action occurs and is immutable once it has occurred.

    Apparently this hypothesis resolves problems in quantum mechanics that cannot be explained without it. I have no formal training in physics and the math flies over my head, so, I believe the Schrödinger’s Cat illustration to be invaluable to laymen. It’s certainly priceless to me because like classical parable it allows me to understand a difficult subject with the ease of a child.

    I offer this small writing in the best of spirits. While not agreeing completely with you (from what I’ve read on your interesting site), I’ve always paid attention to religious people and believe religion is a significant part of culture. If religious and secular people would remain absolutely respectful of each other, we’d have a much better world. You asked for evidence of multi-dimensional theory and I’m pleased to this rough outline of one of many theories.

    You likely realize that a trained physicist or high-level mathematician would be needed to offer really good evidence. Thank you for your consideration.

      I didn’t know at the time of writing that your Christian name is Daniel, and assumed “Knight” was your last name or an Internet-name. No disrespect was intended, Daniel.

      Thank you for your consideration; sorry for the faux pas.

    • December 15, 2014 at 4:43 AM

      “If religious and secular people would remain absolutely respectful of each other, we’d have a much better world.”

      But what is your point? Is your point that respect is the way to eternal peace? What if I said: if Everyone absolutely respected God’s ten commandments and those Jesus said were the two greatest, and which he said was summarized by, “As you would have done to you so do to others” what would my point be? Isn’t it common sense among those who know the Bible that if you perfectly obey him all would be okay? And when you say “respect” just what does that mean? You don’t know, because you clearly don’t know much about religion, or you’d not have injected that random phrase in the middle of a long, no offense, what looks like a rant to me. Rant or not, you’re priorities are clearly off. “First seek the kingdom and His righteousness…” said Jesus, not, “First try and figure out if there are other universes.” I and millions of others already know there is a Heaven, and a Hell, not yet set on fire, where demons are in chains.

    Mr Knight, thank you for strengthening my faith in Christ. I found you after watching video of David Eagleman, the “Possibilian” because I was looking for a Christian refute. Your post addressing him, refuting the nonsense of his “science” and philosophy was edifying – even with all the anger and disgust expressed towards him – understandable as a follower of God’s laws, of Christ. Even Jesus became angry and disgusted at those selling and doing business in the church.

    I have not read a lot of your posts, but I’ve read a lot of your comments here. Your angry statements do not offend me, an empathetic diplomatic person. I’m also a very objective person. Your tone in context is one I admire because you are standing strong to Yahweh and Christ. Perhaps I also admire because it is something I’m not so good at myself. My objectivity and empathy and history of being “open minded” with my “anything is possible” outlook, has perhaps created a way of being that does not serve me best…that does not serve Christ. I pray to be stronger in Christ, a disciple of Christ. Amen!

    I do have a suggestion, though. Your aggression can be perceived by many as very negative, and turn people off from true Christianity. What do you think would be a more effective way to capture hearts when replying to people who disgust you so much? It may be obvious they are ignorant, but do you think a kinder response would be more in line with what Jesus would do, and thus create more disciples for Him?

    Cheers in Christ!

      When after a while I read some post or comment I’ve made and see how I’ve used “moron” and such many times it actually shocks me and I feel embarassed and wonder if I’ve committed the sin of calling someone a fool as Jesus mentioned. Some rare times I edited a comment to make it less furious sounding. But mostly after some thought I don’t see how else to reply but with a sharp rebuke to what to me seem to be truly permenantly mentally warped people. They could be demon possessed, or in a very hateful mood, and so perhaps don’t deserve a “Listen, moron” reply, but rather a “God forgive you” or to just ignore their comment and not let it through. I also think about a verse in proverbs that says not to speak to a fool the way he speaks to you, and interestingly the next verse within that proverb is to speak to a fool the way he is speaking to you lest he be wise in his own eyes. There is also some New Testament verse where I think Paul says something about how certain people who teach bad lies about Christianity need to be shut up. I feel as if when I give a sharp rebuke, that I am making a calculated move to shut up what are “fools”, aka morons. Moron is a word that is often used by the unsaved to express their hate, and perhaps that is why I feel shock when I look back on my comments and see me using it, because I feel as if I am expressing my hate rather than simply rebuking and saying “fool” in a way simply meant to put a person in their place. But if I say “fool” then I think I’d feel even worse since I’d be saying “you fool” just as Jesus said not to do, so I mostly say moron. Many Christians think Jesus simply said not to say fool in a hateful way since he himself used so called “insult” words and they are also in the old testament. I think that is right, that Jesus was talking about the intent and that that is expressed by tone, perhaps something in the Hebrew writing shows that that doesn’t come across in the English translation. When Jesus said saying “Raca” was damnable, did he mean saying it smugly, or with malice? Clearly he meant that, but did he mean not to say it all? I think it is a matter of conscience on that one unless someone can show me otherwise. Perhaps I’ve made the mistake in many of my replies to anti-Christians of assuming they are simply mentally ill or surely going to Hell, and so I wrongly just hit them with “moron” or “idiot”. Perhaps I sometimes lump in allsuch naysayers in together as if they were apart of some army of evil and so whenever I see some negative comment I’ve seen before treat them as I had the last hateful person, as in they are all spiritual clones, and that is wrong of me if I do that.

      I rarely call anyone moron or idiot anymore and deliberately avoid doing so as i try and avoid persons that are obviously that as I seem them as time-wasting traps. The Bible does say to avoid arguments of ignorance and foolish and unlearned questions, surely also then malicious arguments, and ones simply mde to waste your time and hurt your feelings.

    Nice to receive your thoughtful response. Yes, I remember my mother warning me as a child, “Don’t ever call someone a fool. It is the worst thing you could say to them.” Well, with regards to name calling, and intent, it seems to me best to avoid it, particularly within first conversation – give person a chance, the benefit of the doubt. So many people are confused, lost, searching, hungry for their souls to be fed with the life saving truth. Where did the phrase “kill them with kindness”? Wow, such an oxymoron, but we do want to “kill” the evil!! Amen :-)

    There is only one Christian Faith and that is the one that Our Lord left us, the Catholic Faith. Only within the Catholic Church can one save their soul. Time is short, find a priest from the Society of St. Pius X. Wear the Brown Scapular and say the Rosary. Heaven and Hell are forever. SAVE YOUR SOULS!

    • June 12, 2015 at 12:02 PM

      The apostle Paul said to “Avoid ignorant and unlearned questions” and no doubt arguments. Virginie, please, pray to the Lord for wisdom and “lean not on your own understanding but trust in Yahweh with all your heart”, not angels, not some Pope with a fancy hat and robe, not priests, not homosexual child molesters and rapists or nuns who torture kids, not crusading knights trying to strike fear into Muslims to force them to accept Catholicism, but “fear God alone.” Stop worshiping saints which are men and women, and when the Bible says anyone saved is a saint, stop worshiping angels, stop praying to men and women and angels, pray to God as Christ commanded. You neither know Scripture or God, hence your little comments filled with arrogance, thinking that a tiny little comment like that not backed up by anything but your flawed sinful heart somehow can take the place of evidence and logical arguments. You’re less than a child and need to grow up, if you don’t you will be one of those on the Day of Judgment wondering why you are on your way to Hell, believing you had been a good Christian. Stop trying to take God’s place, stop trying to earn your salvation, accept that you are a sinful and arrogant hypocrite and truly repent with true godly remorse, not fake casual repentance like a Pentecostal who thinks he can hear God through his heart and silly signs.
