A Message from God by AmericanDreaming A Message from God by AmericanDreaming
Most of humanity claims to base their lives around the the teachings of prophets, but when they come face to face with one who claims to be in contact with a god, we know them to be insane. The only difference between the piss-soaked nut bag you move away from and the holy men of your religions, is the time in which they happen to have lived, that's it.

Many people move away because in short, prophets are notorious for exposing ugliness, wrongness and sin, be it about ourselves, society, culture etc that we'd rather not know about or want to address and it makes them defensive and the way many people cope with that is to remove or distance themselves from the source of disturbance.

That depends on whether they are in fact messengers from supreme beings as opposed to being mentally ill.  I suppose one can be mentally ill and still speak truths of a sort, but I would not take their visions, prophecies, or extra-human communications seriously without evidence.

I'm not anywhere near being an atheist, but I tend to take the words of anyone claiming to know the will of God with a large grain of salt (and a shot of tequila). =P

I personally would ask some necessary questions to debunk them.

Better a faithful man than a coward.

You claim not to mock, but continually you meekly hide behind the erroneous words of tiny men who could not accept what they could not understand as they lay down one hyperbolic quote after another.

At least if you're going to mock, degrade and persecute, have the originality to make your own slander and the courage to speak it yourself.

I'm glad we can do this again, you're a glutton for punishment I see. Quoting someone you admire is not an act of cowardice, it is an act of humility, something your savior spoke a little bit about. I could have made this picture with words of my own, but I chose to defer to someone who was more experienced, worldly, well-versed, and witty than me.

This is an insightful and funny quote which does poke fun, but also makes a valid point that's unflattering to the religious. It's hardly "persecution." As a member of the religion responsible for more persecution than any other organization in history, one would think you'd be able to properly identify the act when you saw it.

I'm not particularly religious, but more spiritual.

However, I would like to point out, given your continual show of historical ignorance, that Sufism is responsible for little, if any persecution. Yes, it's a form of Islam, but it's pacifistic in nature.

I'm sure you'd know that if you actually *read* about the religions and beliefs you habitually mock.

So you're saying you are a Sufi Muslim? Based on our previous conversations I was under the impression you were a Christian. You act as though I should somehow know this. Sorry, my ESP is down at the moment.
