I've made similar jokes 3 or 4 times? News to me. I'll apologize if you can point them out.

What is why, unlike you, we ask questions and don't believe the first thing that jumps into our heads and make it out as if it is a word from some god.

No I can't know all of his thoughts only what he wants to revel to me

personally and what all others before have learned and what’s been

revealed to them.

A atheist will not receive any revelations about things to come and if they do

they will no longer be atheistic, that I do know and that is up to God.
God told me he doesn't exist.

Gods' plan doesn't include fun so if you're having fun you're doing it wrong.

I think you got that wrong.
All input is from God.
All through out the history of religion they happen in your waking state, in

your dreams, or you are taken up physically, they can happen outside your

head or inside your head.

I have had all of these. My father and mother have had these, I watched

them come true.

The ones I have had latley are in dreams, I never ever in 15 or more years

have remember any of my dreams it started two weeks ago.

The last one my father had was on his death bed.

It came true when he was gone.

Here's what I have been shown.

But I’ll try to give you some Idea of what it is you are missing. God’s plan is

to revel himself to Christians and maybe others before the end.

It’s a relationship with God promised by the Holy Spirit when you are awake

or asleep.

The Holy Spirit wants me to come in here and tell you these things I see, and

understand.

This way you are without excuse, what I relate to believers is confirmation of

his plans.


I made up my mind not to come in here again, because it’s hopeless or so I

thought, but I have to do his will, or as much as I can stand to do because

you and everyone else in here are so.. . What’s the word?...Nasty about the

whole issue.

Religious issues right now for me are on the back burner because I am in a

University taking in, as much as I can and my time is spent there to keep

ahead of everyone, I have done this and I now have a little time to reply or

post when I see the need.

I’m saved so I figured that I shouldn’t bother you and everyone else in here

since you all are so adamant about your belief.

I have pushed out of mind the whole Idea or issue about God but I am being

shown in my waking state how he works in my life and in my dreams about

what is to happen and what that will look like to the world and I know what

you will say ahead of time.

“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate {Holy Spirit} to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. “
I can tell you what I have been shown in the last two weeks but you won’t

believe me but what the hey.



First let me say this; there is a sign that will appear when the earth has

gone through its last upheaval or natural disaster or what the bible says

about birth pains, when that happens, you will have one more chance to

convert.

It will be something that has to do with our sun and since the beginning of

man no one has witnessed an event like this, it will scare the dukey out of

everyone, but it will pass, take this and just remember what I said. It will

pulse; it will look like a pulsar but won’t be a pulsar.

I can’t tell you when it will happen or what it really is, except at that time we

won’t be hurt or at least as far as I can tell we will survive it.

I haven’t remembered any of my dreams for at least 15 years or longer, last

night makes two in a row, so after that event happens there is more, which

you do not really need to know or the dream I had a week ago when this
started.

There will be scientists that will explain this all away when it stops,

that will be a deception for many till the next event happens; you are

without excuse after that time,( the next event.) He wants you to know this

now. I am compelled to tell you this even though many in here will flip out

about my post.

Personally I don’t care what you think or say, I am doing his will not mine, my

will was to leave here and not come back. The only difference between a

skeptic and a believer is we believe in God and you don’t so don’t hand me

that crap about critical thinking or how you are skeptical, we all are the same

and there is only one difference.

Call me what you will, at one point in time or non-time you will see me again

and the whole aspect that you carry around and preach about will also

change, then we will be all spiritually connected to each other and God

above all as I was shown.

You can then apologize to me and everyone else that has tried to give you a

heads up…Because you will. Your arrogance will disappear at this time.

I think that I won't have anything else to tell you after this and I pray that I

am not compelled to report anything else to you.

My attention will be directed to my studies so that I can maintain my grade

point average at 3.9,4.0 unless I see more that might interest you or is

necessary for you to know.

Why does the holy ghost not tell me directly....why does it have to rely on you to relay the message to us??

How do I know that your dream was not in fact SATAN telling you to DECEIVE all of us??

So tricks and DECEPTION again….. it is all about DECEPTION with this god of yours…isn’t it? Much like the Devil….no?

I mean….if Beelzebub wanted to deceive you and pull the wool over your eyes and misguide you….how would you know the difference? How can you be sure that all this is not Satan screwing around with your life and your mind and through you wants to bring down JREF because he knows god in fact loves atheists because they THINK and use REASON?

If you know that we won't believe you...doesn't the holy scarecrow know that too? Why does he still want you to tell us instead of telling us directly?

How do we know that it was not the DEVIL that is raping your dreams?

But it must be at the very least in YOUR lifetime....no? Otherwise why bother tell you or to tell you to tell us....we are your contemporaries...thus if this event is not going to happen in my life time and I will be dead before it happens then WHY TELL ME?????

If it is not in your life time then WHY TELL YOU?


And if you cannot tell us when it is going to happen then what is the point?


I can tell you that you are going to die.... I cannot tell you when it will happen but you will surely die......is this much of a prophecy or is it a SCAM???

Why apologize to YOU….what happened to the holy freak?

But your arrogance will never disappear..... your whole request for apology is so disgusting.... I feel like vomiting….. Do you think the Holy FAKE will not mind that you are usurping his due?

I have had all of these. My father and mother have had these, I watched

them come true.

The ones I have had latley are in dreams, I never ever in 15 or more years

have remember any of my dreams it started two weeks ago.

The last one my father had was on his death bed.

It came true when he was gone.

Here's what I have been shown.

But I’ll try to give you some Idea of what it is you are missing. God’s plan is

to revel himself to Christians and maybe others before the end.

It’s a relationship with God promised by the Holy Spirit when you are awake

or asleep.

The Holy Spirit wants me to come in here and tell you these things I see, and

understand.

This way you are without excuse, what I relate to believers is confirmation of

his plans.


I made up my mind not to come in here again, because it’s hopeless or so I

thought, but I have to do his will, or as much as I can stand to do because

you and everyone else in here are so.. . What’s the word?...Nasty about the

whole issue.

Religious issues right now for me are on the back burner because I am in a

University taking in, as much as I can and my time is spent there to keep

ahead of everyone, I have done this and I now have a little time to reply or

post when I see the need.

I’m saved so I figured that I shouldn’t bother you and everyone else in here

since you all are so adamant about your belief.

I have pushed out of mind the whole Idea or issue about God but I am being

shown in my waking state how he works in my life and in my dreams about

what is to happen and what that will look like to the world and I know what

you will say ahead of time.

Doc posted this Pay attention,” John 14: 15-17


I can tell you what I have been shown in the last two weeks but you won’t

believe me but what the hey.



First let me say this; there is a sign that will appear when the earth has

gone through its last upheaval or natural disaster or what the bible says

about birth pains, when that happens, you will have one more chance to

convert.

It will be something that has to do with our sun and since the beginning of

man no one has witnessed an event like this, it will scare the dukey out of

everyone, but it will pass, take this and just remember what I said. It will

pulse; it will look like a pulsar but won’t be a pulsar.

I can’t tell you when it will happen or what it really is, except at that time we

won’t be hurt or at least as far as I can tell we will survive it.

I haven’t remembered any of my dreams for at least 15 years or longer, last

night makes two in a row, so after that event happens there is more, which

you do not really need to know or the dream I had a week ago when this
started.

There will be scientists that will explain this all away when it stops,

that will be a deception for many till the next event happens; you are

without excuse after that time,( the next event.) He wants you to know this

now. I am compelled to tell you this even though many in here will flip out

about my post.

Personally I don’t care what you think or say, I am doing his will not mine, my

will was to leave here and not come back. The only difference between a

skeptic and a believer is we believe in God and you don’t so don’t hand me

that crap about critical thinking or how you are skeptical, we all are the same

and there is only one difference.

Call me what you will, at one point in time or non-time you will see me again

and the whole aspect that you carry around and preach about will also

change, then we will be all spiritually connected to each other and God

above all as I was shown.

You can then apologize to me and everyone else that has tried to give you a

heads up…Because you will. Your arrogance will disappear at this time.

I think that I won't have anything else to tell you after this and I pray that I

am not compelled to report anything else to you.

My attention will be directed to my studies so that I can maintain my grade

point average at 3.9,4.0 unless I see more that might interest you or is

necessary for you to know.
Holy ****, this is kind of scary - it teeters right on the edge (NPI) of falling over into wacko territory.

I mean….if Beelzebub wanted to deceive you and pull the wool over your eyes and misguide you….how would you know the difference?

If it is not in your life time then WHY TELL YOU?


And if you cannot tell us when it is going to happen then what is the point?


I can tell you that you are going to die.... I cannot tell you when it will happen but you will surely die......is this much of a prophecy or is it a SCAM???









Why apologize to YOU….what happened to the holy freak?

But your arrogance will never disappear..... your whole request for apology is so disgusting.... I feel like vomiting….. Do you think the Holy FAKE will not mind that you are usurping his due?
When someone tells you 'god said' what they're really saying is 'I say" they just want a higher authoritah.

If it was him;Satan, I wouldn't be telling you these things .

Because the Jefers hate God and love satanic things of the world, that's why.
It is you who are decived.

There you go again you want ansewrs but you spit in his face, you are so stuck and angery, your next statement... right back at you.

You are already dead, that's why.



And if you cannot tell us when it is going to happen then what is the point?

It is written, no one knows.

I can tell you that you are going to die.... I cannot tell you when it will happen but you will surely die......is this much of a prophecy or is it a SCAM???

Snipped the reast of the drvel.

I only said I seen the event not the after affects.
The next night I saw the next event not the after affects.
I have said back a few posts, that it proves we will all be saved, the question is for how long will we be saved, all of us. That is biblical as I have posted the correlating passages back away.

Fascinating as this story is about your nocturnal activities is, what does it have to do with the thread? Wacko is too mild a term.

Well, I don't see anyone going to a church here and enlighting them.

But I do see people coming here knowing what type of forum they are on and complaining that it is they that are being pick on. They have nothing but hearsay backing them up, and it has been told to them time and time again that it counts for nothing in the real world. Sorry but I don’t feel sorry for them, they had over a thousand years to show the way to enlightenment and all they did was to kept humankind down and robbed people of their rights and kept the human race from going to the stars.

Poor poor them.

Paul

yep, zero sympathy. Unsupported assertions of the supernatural and special pleading do not make an argument. If they cant understand that, the only recourse is abuse, derision and humour.

Edge, let's pretend for a second that you are right and that there is a God somewhere out there. He created life, the universe and everything from scratch and is all knowing, etc. A being like that would be so far beyond us we couldn't communicate with them in any meaningful way, even attempting to fathom him would... well, I think Lovecraft pegged it. The person who tries it would be driven mad.

my personal favorite is when the rabid christian fundamentalists say you will 'burn in hell forever for not believing', and when you call them out threatening you with hellfire they reply

"It is not a threat, but a warning from my god of the bible"

Yea, sure, keep telling yourself that, pal

It's not Edge's (and others like Limbo) words that I find offensive, it's more their posting styles and their posting attitudes.

They could write, but they sploodge — word vomit with narry a backspace or word-check in sight.
They could read other's posts, but they skim and fly off the handle.
They could show some restraint, but they wildly lurch in all directions.

They could try to meet us halfway, they could aim for some kind of accord, but they just want to degrade and confuse and preen.
They could learn from what they have endlessly been taught, instead they goldfish it and come back clueless on every circuit of the bowl.

I know I should look upon that kind of posting with pity and compassion, but it seems I am not that grown up yet.

That's why, I am fairly sure, these kinds of threads head towards temper rather than concord.
