What I find ironic is when people call others bigots, I see the irony because bigot means intolerant to different opinions so calling them that is exactly what they are doing they are accusing the other person of. I think everyone has bigotry views because we all have our own bias opinions and won'...

If we substitute 'a few' for 'many' and 'terrorist sympathizer' for 'terrorist' I'm on board. It's not necessarily fair to expect/have to perform constant disavowal, but public perceptions aren't often formed on particularly fair basis. If you know the perception is unfair, why do you perpetuate it...

Why is it always about these two prophets? We always forget John the Baptist, and his religion.

We can't forget Zarathustra.

Ultimately many of them are. It's not fair to label all Christians or all political conservatives as bigots, but on a number of issues certain elements self-identify as Christians, self-identify as conservatives and display bigotry towards certain groups. Because other self-identified Christians or...

I'd start a new one that's entirely based around a material, natural explanation for existence. With no proscribed rituals or fixed dogma. I'd convert to areligion. :wink:

It may be common for people to fall back to their early beliefs when under stress, but I don't think that being under stress is a good way to find out what someone really believes. Not always, but it probably is for atheists since I get the distinct-impression that most of them think their beliefs ...

As for being beheaded ... First, they'll have to capture me. Second, Dying for my faith (according to both Islam and Christianity) virtually guarantees a place for me in Heaven! And I'll bet you'd start praying if you got into a situation in which you believed your life to be imminently in severe d...

Racism can be smart. -For example, they say black people make superior runners because they have the "twitch fibers" in their nerves. That is why most pro receivers, corner backers, defensive backs and running backs are black. -They also say that black people are inferior at the specific ...

Other than the name Koresh, was there any connection between Teed and David Koresh? Not as far as I know. The Branch Davidians were a schismatic group of Davidian Seventh-day Adventists, which itself is a schismatic group of the Seventh-day Adventist church. Teed's 'Koreshanity' is rooted in Christ...

Dear Funeralxempire, Don't forget Cyrus Teed! Unfortunately my list was not a complete list of prophets. I think the Cyrus Teed threat has ended though. Cyrus Teed? Who dat? Cyrus Reed Teed (1839–1908) was a U.S. eclectic physician and alchemist turned religious leader and messiah. In 1869, claimin...
