I know how you all love zeitgeist

I don't agree with all of zeistgeist but they do make a few good points (in amongst the bollocks).

Response to Josh

No Josh, your blind idolatorous faith in a book overtakes your ability to act rationally.

"Jesus says that one of the things people will see is the destruction of the temple, which was fulfilled"

Yes, ONE of those things, but is it ALL as the context requires?

"and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake."

So, were the early christians hated by ALL nations, how about the chinese and japanese, or the mayans? Of whom there was no contact, nor any knowledge.

"this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations"

So, was the gospel preached in North America during the generation of Jesus's time? Perhaps you ought become a follower of Smith? Did the Inca ever receive this Gospel during that generation - no.

"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."

So, if this great Tribulation happened in the generation of Jesus, then does that mean the extermination of the Jews was less terrible? Or the wars of the 20th century?

"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken"

Firstly, Jesus thinks the moon creates its own light - WRONG. Secondly, the stars are still up in the sky A LONG TIME AFTER THAT GENERATION IS ALL PASSED AWAY.

I could go one further, but what is the point, your zealotry retards your ability to reason or even understand that these things you believe are false. Should you have an ounce of humility, you would renounce your faith and accept the truth: THERE IS NO GOD.

Freedom of Speech

The term freedom of speech is oft bandied about in our society, yet many do not appreciate what it really means. Freedom of speech means not only the freedom of each of us to make our opinion known, it is also the obligation to let others say as they will about us. Our laws protect only against statements of defamatory imputation and no more. To limit the ability of others to criticise us is, in reality, an open move against the freedom of speech.

Religion is known for limiting freedom of speech. Emperor Justinian burnt all opposing (non-christian) temples and schools of study and made the crime of heresy punishable by death. They moved against freedom of speech. Hitlers first command when he obtained Chancellory was to limit press freedoms and then silence the Courts. They moved against freedom of speech.

Why do people that hold themselves out to be true, right and correct, fear the criticisms of others? Could it be that they know they are not right at all.

We know only that limiting the Freedom of Speech is a step towards darkness and recklessness. A man who has courage and honour will brook any words made against him. A tyrant and coward, one and the same, will always seek to limit freedom of speech. Shame on that tyrant and coward alike.

Challenge to Christians

Could any of Jesus's God bothering cronies please answer this for me:

John 7: 38 states

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

I've looked and looked, but I can't find a quote in the Bible that "He that believeth on me, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water". Or any words to that effect. This can obliges any person that cannot find such words to conclude that:

1. The Bible is not complete, and thus not the perfect word of God; or,
2. John 7: 38 is incorrect, and thus the Bible is not the perfect word of God.
