Well this seems legit. Count me in. Good real estate values in Detroit, or I suppose I can just go kill someone there and squat (but don't worry, I'll make sure they aren't a fellow believer first!).

You are setting a fine example of witnessing your religion.

Define "harm" and "steal from." This is an important discussion for some reason.

Good point. What if I sleep with a fellow believer's wife? Is that allowed? Does it count as stealing? What if a believer harms me? Can I harm them back? Or do we stone them as a group? Come to think of it, can we incorporate stoning in some way? I think that would be cool.

And let me know if "harm" includes "harm by inaction".

If it does then Clay is harming me by not sending me money to buy my food at very expensive restaurants and on the weekends having the chef and her team come round and cook at home. And while we are on the subject of home; did you know that Clay is harming me by not paying for a large farm for me to live on? Arrrrrgh. Thats just some of the pain I feel. Arrrrrrgh. There is a bit more. I'm beginning to think that YOU are harming ME by not telling Clay to send MORE Money. Yes I'm sure of it - you are, through inaction, harming me. I want your HDDs, especially the SSDs. But not the DNAed keyboard. gulp

You didn't get the check in the mail? Hmm... give me your bank account information, I'll do a direct deposit. You can trust me not to steal from you, I haven't even been told what that is yet.

In spite of the way we in the US continue to treat adultery as somehow equal to (or worse than) sexual assault, I'm sure if God delivered a modern enlightened revelation to Curt, it doesn't include women as property that can be stolen. Anyway, I don't know the laws in Germany, but as of earlier this month there are now a few more US states that will allow you to become a stoner. Hopefully the faithful will see that this occurs in Detroit as well.

God's too busy right now, so you have to figure it out for yourself. But don't lose your head over this.


Oh...well...time to start fractious faction with questionable interpretations of scripture and good dose of insecurity driven hatred!

Pah! That's not a real god.

A real god would demand you forsake all other gods - knowing of course that there are no other gods to forsake because this is the one real god, the one true god. But it does make me wonder, if there are no other gods, why do any other (non-existent) gods need to be forsaken?

A real god would have better timing. With the world about to end in less than a month (according to the Mayans), it doesn't leave much time to convert more mindless chumps followers to your insane cult religion.

And finally - where are the miracles, the iconography, the blood sacrifices? Huh?

Where is the insane list of proscriptions? Thou shall not lick cats paws? Thou shall not eat green vegetables on a Tuesday night after 6:00pm. Thou shall not dob-in child abusers to the police?

Nah. That's not a real god. Keep dreaming.
