    C'mon, your God is a compulsive and repetitive child abuser.

    Your God is the nightmare of childhood.
    :yawn:

    Nobody makes clear the two tenets of atheism quite like Victor.

    There is no God
    and
    I hate him.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    I'm not an atheist but you keep calling me an atheist in order to insult me. And this is what the bullies do on Central, they deploy insults. But insults are against the rules and may lead to banning.

    If you care to read the first few commandments you will find we are commanded to love someone we fear.

    And this is precisely the demand made by child abusers to children: to love someone they fear.

    No. That was the Roman soldiers.

    In the Garden of Gethsemene, Jesus begged his Father not to torture him to death, but Dad turned a deaf ear.

    And gosh, it was the New Testament which blamed the torture and death of Jesus on the Jews. And fuelled by this blood libel at Easter, the good Christians would go out and have a progrom against the Jews, until the final pogrom and the final solution: the holocaust.

    Where is it written that his father tortured him?
    No. He asked his father to let the cup that was handed him pass. Because he knew the Romans were going to kill him. The Roman soldiers killed his body.

    The blood libel against the Jews began with Matthew 27:25 when the Jews replied, "Let his (Jesus) blood be upon us and upon our children".

    Agnosticism is my formal philosophical position and it does not preclude the suspension of disbelief in religion or art or movies.

    In other words, my intellectual integrity has led me to agnosticism, but my imagination leads me to religion and art and the movies.

    So my Agnosticism does not preclude that leap of imagination, or indeed that leap of faith, that is so necessary to suspend disbelief.
