    its a joy to read. hilarious, yet it makes me want to bury my head so far into my hands that my thumbs are forced up my nose and my fingers puncture my eyeballs and get jammed in my frontal lobes.

    That's okay, he says equally stupid things about Christianity too, but the atheist reads these one-liners and simply nods and drives on to the next post.

    Dasa has created his own messianic complex on here that far surpasses, by head and shoulders, any other poster who we may lack sympathy for on this forum.

    That means our leader controls our every move. Wow, I did not know that, totally in the dark there. And I thought I was just sleepwalking....

    If your leader is not Christ, then it is Satan the devil.

    i like that you have to clarify which satan you are talking about. just in case we thought you meant satan the postman or satan the claims adjuster.

    I have always found it interesting how theists seem to constantly sway between the two concepts - that we have free will and are responsible for all our actions - or that we are largely controlled or heavily influenced by either 'good' or 'bad' entities (ultimately God or Satan).
    Many theists end up with a compromise where 'free will' consists entirely of choosing to surrender to one or the other 'master' then being controlled by that entity.
    Of course there is the added complexity that Satan is sometimes replaced with 'sin nature' originating with Adam.

    But all this totally ignores or removes rational thinking where we set ourselves goals to either benefit ourselves or others then try to achieve those goal through our actions, or where we subconsciously satisfy our desires/addictions through our actions. My brain says it wants caffeine, so I make myself a cup of coffee without really thinking about it much. To a theist this was me deciding to either follow Gods voice or Satans voice then obeying whatever they instructed me to do. This leaves me wondering whether it was Satan or God that wanted me to have that cup of coffee and why.

    coffee - satan
    tea - god
    fax - satan
    e-mail - god
    photocopier - satan
    temp to do photocopying - god
    barbara in h.r. - satan
    chloe in accounts - god
    power point presentation - satan
    flip chart -god
    monthly meeting with guy from head office - satan
    bitching session disguised as a meeting - god
    team building exercises - satan
    getting trapped in the lift with chloe from accounts - god

    its pretty obvious stuff.
