That said, I do engage sometimes, mostly when someone has posted such a variety of stupid things that I can't take it anymore. In fact, I responded to something dumb the other day (rather politely I might add), and it quickly devolved into the "friend" getting very upset, unfriending me, sending a barrage of angry PMs, and calling me a narcissist before blocking me.

So, yeah, it can be amusing or whatever to respond, but there are risks. You could run across an insane family-counseling grad student who diagnoses you with a personality disorder before completely cutting you off.

Exactly. Although i do admit to doing this as well. I've owned to the pompous thing tho, so they tend to take it in stride.

Robert just another typical unlogotical Christian who doesn't research facts. Where are you biblical figures in History, outside the "Holy" text hum... no where. So someone needs to study there History and study Religious History as well. That's a subject that talks about the different religions and not just Christianity and its not about theism aspect either. I don't know about pagan gods but research Horus, Attis, Mithra, Krishna, Dionysus just to name a few. Oh none of them are Pagan. Plus I love how Christians believe you have to believe in a "savior" in order to go to Heaven. So basically telling me if a good person who goes sin less but doesn't believe in your "savior" is going to hell. Yeah OoooKkkkk there. Oh plus how is there no hell in the Old testiment but then there is in the New testiment, and that it a complete copy of other religions and Greek mythology of Hades. But I know you going to rebuttal with some nonsense BS.

Wow Robert, Pagan gods? *Faceplam* No Horus was Egyptian, Attis and Dionysus was Greece, Mithra was Persian, Krishna was Hindu you dumbass not Pagan. The letters of Paul really oh you mean the documents that He wrote that was 50 to 60 years after the "Life" of "Jesus." Oh and the youtube vids on Zeitgeist seen bits and pieces, it was too humorous to take seriously.
The research its call talking with Historians, Anthropologist, and Religious History Professors and looking through various of History and Religious History books on Ancient Egyptian, European, African, Middle Eastern, and Asian History. Which is so amazing from the Judaism, Christianity, and Muslim religions that "god" and the rest of the Characters (once again not in actual Real World History) only spent his time in Northeast Africa, parts of the Middle East, and Southeast Europe. But not in Ancient Western Europe, Rest of Africa, Asia, Nordic, and of course the entire Western Hemisphere.
Oh an Judaism use to be Polytheistic (belief of many gods and goddess's) then it became Henotheistic (Many gods but only one powerful god over all the others) before it became Monotheistic (only one god).
Plus I love how Christian say "Well we don't go by the Old Testament." Then that means you wouldn't go by the Ten Comments and other Mosaic Laws.

But the real question is when did you believe in your myth, where you born and raised or join it at a later age? Why do you believe it and do you believe the "holy" book literally or symbolically?

I going to rebuttal the first quote but need some help with "unlogotical". Is it American idiom? Googling it results in this.

I think he meant ontological. It's a theoretical paradigm, and almost always used by people to sound smart, rather than because the distinction needs to be made.

All of those religions are pagan. Hinduism is arguable but I don't see any necessary distinction. Greek and Roman religion was what the term "pagan" was created for.

I thought I was ontological at first, too, but in context it seems more likely to be "unlogical."

A friend of his leapt to his defense, citing the etymology for 'pagan' given in Merriam-Webster's elementary-school-level Word Central website (I'm assuming because it's the only available online definition that doesn't mention anything about polytheism,) and concluded with, "So....the original meaning of pagan was 'a person in a village or rural area.' Christians evolved it to mean heathen or non-religious person." I'm still not sure how this is supposed to prove that his friend is right, and that Mithra, Horus, et al aren't pagan gods.

That was apparent to me from the beginning, but I guess I have more experience hacking my way through moron-ese than most people.

The people in the rural areas of the roman empire were the last to adopt christianity, hence the association. Heathen has basically the same meaning. Tell that guy I said he was stupid.

It's usually obvious from hearing atheists talk about christianity that most have a very poor understanding of it. The ones that like to argue on the internet also tend to have equally poor grasps of the scientific method and philosophy, but rely heavily on that misunderstanding to counter their misunderstanding of religion. It's the reason I installed this on my browser

Never once has my day been improved by reading a conversation about religion on Facebook.

Did you not read my FB post on the juxtaposition of Kierkegaard's philosophy and modern evangelical Christians?

Somehow I did miss that!
