Pat Robertson: God Told Me Who the Next President Will Be, But I Can’t Tell You
Passive aggressive messages from the Man Upstairs

Religious right crocodile Pat Robertson said on his TV show “The 700 Club” that God told him who the next president will be.

But he’s “not supposed to talk about it.”

God did give Pat permission, though, to let the world know that He’s not a fan of Barack Obama.


Sometimes I marvel at what an odd country America is, that there are actually people here who watch this repellent old fraud and truly believe he has a direct line to the Almighty — just because he says so

From the Jesus is weird department

 

 

“‘Woe to me!’ I cried. ‘I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips ... and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.’ Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal ... which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, ‘See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.’ Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’” (Isaiah 6:5–8 NIV)

One of the most effective tools the enemy will use to keep you from serving God this year is convincing you that you’ve either messed up too much or that you must clean up your life before you can get God’s attention. When these thoughts pop into your head, sniff the air for the scent of sulfur because they are lies straight from the fires of Hell!

God’s intention when he convicts us of our sins is not to condemn us; rather his breath of life disperses that satanic smoke the father of lies uses to keep us on the run from God.

Epiphenom latest 


That was the year that was 2011

Posted: 01 Jan 2012 12:55 PM PST

So, farewell 2011, and hello 2012! Happy Gregorian New Year, and welcome to the wrap up of all the great science covered in Epiphenom over the past year. 

Let's start with what we've learned about why people believe. Are we born religious, or do we learn it? This year there was more evidence that kids are not really innate believers in the supernatural, but on the other hand we saw some evidence that even atheists have a kind of intuition that dead people can still think. Intriguingly, the magic in religious storiesseems to be tailor made to be weird, but not so weird as to be outrageous.

There was more evidence that the link between education and the strength of religious beliefs is really quite complicated, although atheists are more likely to be grammar Nazis! Perhaps more important than education is the type of thinking - it seems that deep thinkers are more likely to lose their faith.

There were some interesting studies on the link between psychiatric disorders and religion. People with religious or paranormal beliefs are also more likely to be psychotic, perhaps because they form part of a reinforcing world-view, prompted by a failure of rational thought. On the other hand, autistics are more likely than average to be atheists, perhaps because they don't have the same social drives. Dope smokers are more religious than booze drinkers, although I'm not sure what that tells us!

Interesting article about Arab exclusion from Israel and the Ultra-Orthodox, doone.

Comment by Chris on January 1, 2012 at 9:38pm

Intelligence squared has a debate: The World Would Be Better Off Without Religion. It's 1:47 long and worth listening to while doing something your don't have to think about so you can pay attention to the debate. I've heard better debates on this subject such as the following Intelligence squared debate: We would be better off without religion 1:54 - with Hitchens, Dawkins, and Grayling vs. Dr. Nigel Spivey, Rabbi Julia Neuberger, and Roger Scruton. I was surprised with the outcome of the first debate. The outcome of the second debate seemed obvious.

s Israel's Orthodox Problem Due To Arab Exclusion?

GT_ISRAELIORTHODOX_111229

That's Peter Beinart's read on the harrowing stories of sexism within the ultra-Orthodox community, including a young girl spat upon while walking to school because she wasn't dressed properly: 

[U]ltra-Orthodox coercion stems in large part from ultra-Orthodox control of key ministries in the Israeli government. Israeli prime ministers give the ultra-Orthodox control over these ministries in return for the Knesset votes that keep them in power. And why must Israeli prime ministers include ultra-Orthodox parties in their governments? In large measure because they will not include Israel’s Arab parties. ...

What gives the ultra-Orthodox the ability to oppress women, in other words, is partly a political system in which Israel’s Arab citizens are largely barred from power. What the protesters in Beit Shemesh and their supporters in the United States need to remember is the fundamental interconnectedness of equal citizenship. When you deny it to one group, you produce ripple effects that undermine the equality of others as well.

@Doone; Why Islamic modernism failed and gave floor to radical Islamism?

because the majority of Muslims regard them as secularists and hypocrites..Wahhabis and Salafis against them all the time!

To be honest many of those liberals are secularists and there are some few moderate muslims among them.
