I am far from a saint, but damn if this dude doesn't lay it down as it is!!!

Wow... 13 views. Nice.

I am firmly of the belief that faith is a personal matter and it should not be discussed in open forums unrelated to mythology and religion, but that kind of video is justifying absolutely baseless hate. If you have some kind of source for this evil secret society, feel free to publish it and earn a prize. Otherwise, please get this weak propaganda out of here.

Note to myself: "the antichrist will bring a flavor of christianity that is empty of grace, of the struggle, the flavor and the salt".

Dang it, now I have to watch The Prophecy 1-3 with Christopher Walken again, to see if that holds true.. ;)

As far as emotional storytelling goes -

In the end times, politics will fail (just in general), and then christianity will fail, because we have to watch for the antichrist coming, before we watch for christ coming, as the book tells --

really could be read as

I dont feel as good, so I'm proselytizing that this must be something feeling to many people like the end of the world would.

Then politics is failing.

First of all yes it is - but thats no biggy really, because it always kind of is, and then its not - if needed in some instances... Largely depends on what "politics is failing" means to the individual.

No "morals"? Probably not getting better (except if you see Texas basically banning abortions as a win..). Societal guiding planks? Probably never getting to the point again, where capitalism has won, and the only thing to prevent was communism. Although that was nice and concise... America being the moral leader of the free world? Getting tougher. Getting an inspiring figure back, like Ronald Reagan, that had so much family valuesTM? Could happen tomorrow. So failing yes, but not to a catastrophic extent. (Especially not if you are a free market liberal. ;) )

Then religion is failing as most people dont hone in on an element of struggle or suffering, and its loosing its grace... Well, to a certain point I can understand and condone the emotion. (Nothing is pure again, and everything was better in the past. :) ) But the thing is, thats not the way to get back to a point, where everyone loves being together with others, and having a shared experience in a mass, or the communal public lunch afterwards. So if you really want things to become better again, this needs a perspective change, and maybe even some enthusiastic people with a healthy amount of naivity. :)

So while I get the "everyone see things from that perspective" approach of sharing that sentiment, if "leaving" the idea of "everything was better in the past" is the goal, then getting more people into the believe, that yes, things indeed were better in the past, and we are approaching the end times, probably is not the best approach to take. :)

Very empathic though. The guy in the video. :)

This. All of my this.
Tell that to the voice in my head. ;) (Thats me playing with concepts, I have to clarify, because thats how bad rumors start.. ;) (I dont actually hear..))

Stephen Fry has quite a nice story about wanting to become a man of clergy in his youth and having a bishop (or something like that) tell him, to come back - once he had had an experience with god, and heard the calling. In a quite factual sense. I might link it, if I find it again.. :)

Also, but at the same time greek mythology is something you can learn from, I personally found it fascinating in my youth... It probably tells you more about human beings than a year worth of philosophy at a university would.. ;) And even christianity has its merits (spoken as a fan of Christopher Hitchens), the problem with monotheistic (one god only) religions is, that most of them tell you they know what the true god is thinking. Yet for some people this holds value (quite a strict moral code, that guides behavior, or creates/supports community, or ...) --

and just in general 'I only believe in things that can be proven with evidence' is not how people work. Its not even how science works, if you look more closely - but that would be a whole other debate.. :)

Also, you dont believe in Shrek? How dare you sir! Have you even read the fan fiction? ;)

pretty sure i didn't tell anyone that they were believing in fairy tales. i was responding to someone's post saying that I don't believe in fairy tales. it's not like i was responding to a thread concerning a switch problem. it's not like i started a thread telling theists that they believe in fairy tales. i don't have a problem whatsoever what someone believes in so as long as it doesn't cause harm to others, including their children. just like it doesn't bother me that you're also an atheist. except for when you accuse me of coming off as a dick. because that was a dick move.

I think it's impossible to take this type of shit seriously any more because many Republican politicians fit the description of the anti-Christ perfectly, and (American) Christians worship them anyway. Atheist socialists I meet do a far better job of adhering to Christ's actual teachings through their actions, rather than using the bible as a cudgel to justify hateful/exclusionary rhetoric.
