I have just unleashed all Hell onto the "Irish Catholic's Forum:
I stated that You Roman Catholics can't handle the truth. You replied:
" I might add that eccles' "you Roman Catholcs can't handle the truth" seems to me to reflect a very significant element of atheist sensibility - a belief that it is a sign of strength, courage and clear-sightedness to be a nihilist and that religious faith is the product of cowardice and evasive suburban sentimentality. "
I see that you are more thick that I though you were. You couldn't see the truth and understand it if it hit you hard in the face.
The truth is that Christianity is just like all other religions that believe in some supernatural diety. The truth is that there is no "Creator/God". The Bible is all fiction based on other fictious religions of the time, one example being Egyptology whence came the cock'n'bull stories about Jesus and his alleged 'virgin birth'. The Jesus myth is based on the Horus myth. The mother of Horus was Isis - a "virgin".
The Bible is the worst book of fiction ever written and should be classified Fiction/Horror. You mention "eyewitnesses' of Jesus so-called "miracles" passing down their fables down to the writers of the Gospels. There is no proof for that. The real names of the Evangalists are not known. There are no original authored manuscripts in exiatance. Everyting in the NT is just hearsay. Even the Gospels do not agree with each other in their detail.
As far as your beloved Catholic Church is concerned, that was founded by Constantine I under the name of the Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church at the Council of Nicea 325 CE. It was a political action to make Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire. Immediately all those who did not "tow the line" were excommunicated and many executed. That action lasted for about 1,500 years. Constantine appointed the first Pope of the Roman Catholic Church - Sylvester I.
Any similarity between what Jeshua bar Joseph aka. Jesus the Nazarine aka. Jesus Christ is alleged to have taught is nil.
You Catholics swallow everything your Church tells you. You are told that you must obey. You must never question. You must obey the Pope. Well the Pope is a Liar for Jesus.That is what I was taught in Xavier College in Melbourne, Australia. It is run by the dreaded Jesuits.
You might not appreciate Atheism on your forum. Atheists do not appreciate the lies of Christianity on our forums.
