I juste read through a bunch of your hate-mails.
I must say I am quite impressed. Your answers are funny, well
made and everything. And I am impressed, seriously, that you've
managed too engage so many christians in these "discussions".
And I am just curious. Has it ever crossed your mind that many
of these people write to you to save your life?
I'm just saying... wether christianity is true or not, they
want to help you, and save your life. As you probably know,
christians believe that you go to heaven or hell when you die.
And that is something that impresses me... they want to see
you in heaven. Even after what you've said or written about
Just a little thought that came to me, reading your mail.
Have a nice day, BobHåkon Øyen
Yes, but instead of throwing me a life
preserver or an air raft or something of that nature, they keep
throwing bowling balls and pillowcases filled with old car parts.
I'm being as polite as I can to the ones who are seriously trying
to help, but there comes a point when you have to impolitely
shout back at them "These things you're tossing into
the water don't float! If I were to grab hold of 'em they'd
pull me under! So just stop already!!" You know what
I'm perfectly aware
that they're trying to save me, but it's as if they think writing
the word "LIFE VEST" on a cinderblock and wishing
it to float is enough, and beyond that there's no further accountability,
because it's the thought that counts.
What I'm trying to say
is: That mere thought doesn't count anymore.
Thank you for the email though.
I see your point...
And by the way, another good answer! I am
impressed once more!
And without trying to throw anything in the water: I hope that
you'll find the things that float one day.
Thanks for quick answer, you're a serious
Have a nice weekend Bob!
Well thank you, Håkon.
Don't get the wrong
idea though. I've definitely found what floats, and it's consistently
been my own logic and commonsense. And I've found that the methods
of science provide logical, commonsense answers to life's questions.
It's a very secure, and trustworthy rowboat.
I appreciate your emails.
2 years later...
You might not remember me. We've been debating some years ago. I think I kind of flipped out about your Dressup-Jesus-thing. I believe I wasn't the only one. haha
Anyway I just watched your Preachy Preacher video, and just felt I had to apologize. For me being such a dick and a know-it-all in debating religion with you. It is a long time ago, but I still feel stupid.
When I was younger, I never realized that debating or preaching the way that guy in the video does, is in direct conflict with being good people. I think I have come a long way since then, but I still feel stupid. So I just want you to know that I'm sorry.
Ps. I don't even know why we're friends on facebook, but you seem like a cool guy and I like a lot of your posts.
Have a nice day!
Oh no! The number one harshest, most hurtful statement on the
face of the earth!!! What... is... happening ... to
me?!? Eyelids balloon with tears! Tongue retreats to
the back of my mouth! Head thrusts back, arms spiralling
out of control! The madness and contempt is dashing
my dreams of any future to ash!!!
I am left disgraced, castrated in the corner clenching
I will avenge this, Peter Knauer. You can bet your
best pair of pants, I WILL AVENGE!!!!!!

God” Hebrews 10:31
Dear Mr. Smith,
Just when I, as a Christian think I've seen it all,
this comes across my computer screen. It blew my mind
to think that "man" has come so low as to
make this kind of mockery like this out of my Lord and
I'm not going to quote a lot of scripture to you as
I'm sure there will be plenty of folks out there who
will - but I am going to keep you in my prayers that
God will convict you and you will come to know the One
that you have made this mockery of. "It's a
fearful thing to fall into the Hands of an angry God".
In the Grip of Grace,
Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called: The Present.
That's really an interesting take on it. It's funny, because if
you look at it from my perspective I see it as nothing
less than a progression in man's evolution here on earth.
It's really interesting to me that you see our continued
lack of submission to the gods as a backwards step.
Wouldn't you agree history shows that the education
of the masses and overcoming of the gods, such as our submission
to the solar eclipses, praying to the dead, erecting
of totem poles & idols, suicide bombings for Allah,
or Crusades for Jesus Christ proved to be positive steps
which aid human progression?
Obviously my belief is that it's time to do away with
all of these imaginary war mongers.
How is it you see it beneficial to continue our submission
to their varying, contradictory commands which grant
their followers any amount of destructive behaviors
as long as it's done in the name of the gods?
Thanks for the email. I'm really looking forward to your response.
|“Just the use of the word improbable means that you consider
it to be possible”
What makes you think God is improbable, because science
and your supposed intellect cannot fathom, or does not
address, such? Just the use of the word improbable means
that you consider it to be possible and if it's possible,
then it could have happened exactly as it was said to
Why do you believe that God hasn't healed anyone? Are
you aware of the Christian tenet that says that every
talent any person has, is given of and by God? How many
cures for disease are dispensed on a daily basis in
this world? You're looking for miraculous signs, yet
we're told to not depend solely on such signs because
some are not of God. Miracles do happen, but such signs
are special and shouldn't be thrown around like a farmer
planting seed in the spring.
No one closes their eyes and says that they don't have
to worry. Christianity is all about responsibility for
one's own actions. You are held responsible for any
sins you've committed. You are liable to be punished
for those sins, unless you repent and ask forgiveness.
No one else is responsible for any transgressions but
their own, and all are and will be, held responsible
for those transgressions.
I'm not having a bit of that without definitive figures
from a reliable source. Even then, that possibility
only exists if we continue on the course we've taken.
The future is not set in stone.
Yeah, I suppose all that makes sense to you. But if you seriously
think about a god person making people so they'll worship
and adore him you don't have to go much farther than
that to determine it's all made up.
You're not gonna convince me by quoting the tenet,
or anything else people have written about God and his
demands of us. If Christianity were all about responsibility
for ones own actions it wouldn't base itself on someone
else paying the price for everyone on the cross. And
asking for your god's forgiveness over all else? Neat
idea! I wanna imaginary character to forgive me of everything
I do too! I'm naming mine "Blame-man!"
Thanks for the thoughts, but you really need to grow
up more before you go shootin' your mouth off to strangers.

You said it yourself: "No one else is responsible
for any transgressions but their own, and all are and
will be, held responsible for those transgressions."
What do you suppose your responsibilities will
be in regards to those feelings you have for those people?
Or do you get forgiven by the gods you worship?

the world through your eyes.

Hi Bob-----it is obvious that you have had little exposure
to human compassion. The person you mock as a "stocking
stuffer" was willing to die one of the most painful
of deaths so that you could have the freedom to do what
you did---blaspheme. And through that death he made
it possible for you to spend eternity with HIM instead
of in a place of ETERNAL TORTURE. That gift of eternal
life is available to you if you realize and acknowledge
the truth of what HE did---die for you. That is my prayer

Yeah, I've heard that. But I'm not sure if you heard that about
500 years before Jesus, a god named Dionysus died on
a cross for people too. I mean, I realize that you wanna

you've done wrong, but seriously, are you expecting
me to buy it all on your "educated" promise.
Do other people you email these sorts of letters to
bow to your wishes? I'm just curious.
