I just reread this thread from the beginning.

Here is Joker17's first post in it:

http://www.lotterypost.com/news/232109/2076541

It was followed immediately by an equally inoffensive and short remark by Mario38.

Then after a few posts of varying degrees of levity in both directions, you weighed in with the above.  I disagreed and replied to it, but you sidestepped my reply, eager to engage Joker and Mario.

Even after your tirades, the objects of your abuse tried to remain civil as long as they could.  Visiondude's response to Joker's same post was thoughtful and peaceful.  As a fellow believer, you could learn a lot from him.

I don't think there's any doubt about the source of the hatefulness in this thread.  I personally know some Iranian immigrants;  attitudes like yours cause a lot of hurt to a lot of people.

I'd suggest you block me then if your delicate sensibilities are so offended, Nancy.

Wouldn't want you to have a nervous nellie fit, now would we?

      I Agree!      How many times have the faithful prayed to God for a big lotto win & it never happened? I know it's more than the fingers & toes i have. It was just her time to win. You cant convince me God had anything to do with it.

      Ahhh, someone with a brain and can think for themselves....BRAVO !

        There are worse things to ruin impressionable young minds with. In this day and age something is needed

        to make impressions on young minds especially when the world has become such a hostile, hateful, hurtful

        place for so many of them.

        Why not have a God to turn to? I believe in God and no one will make me believe any different, if they

        did it would be satan himself. The father of lies and uncertainty. Satan is the one responsible for doubt

        and rejection of God by humankind. We've read what you think about God...do you believe in satan?

        God has been a source of strength, hope and faith for many people. He will continue to be too.

        Why try to convince them there is no God? Why get so angry when one wants to believe there is a God?

        I think your first post to this thread was something along the lines of Coincidence..and that's it. It is said

        that: with God all things are possible...who knows why he chooses to answer some and ignore others.

        Who knows why suffering is allowed to happen around the world? I sure do not but I'm not going to

        question why He allows it or why He won't put a stop to it. I won't challenge God. There are enough

        people in the world challenging him..if he took on all of the challenges presented, he would be no differ-

        ent than man himself. His power, mystery and greatness would be greatly taken for granted and consi-

        dered void because man feels the need to understand and control what is not understood and not able

        to be controlled. Man needs to know all mysteries, understand all powers and take charge of what is

        not thiers to control. Man diminshes and degrades things. God is very smart to ignore some prayers

        and disregard most challenges. He allowed the atheist an answer...we will never know why, we can

        guess but only God knows why and that's good enough for most of us, the rest of us can just go on

        believing it's coincidence...even the coldest, smallest hearts and minds can change. This is where With

        God, all things are possible fits in again.

        Joker are you atheist or agnostic?

        I'm an agnostic. I don't pretend to know the secrets of the universe.

          I've never seen more hate than the hate non-believers have for Christians.

          Funny thing is, they're always gutless cowards.

          Every last one of em.

          "Funny thing is, they're always gutless cowards."

          Joker stood up to all your posts - proves he is not a gutless coward - I think you owe him an apology.  He stated several times he was an American citizen and you continually ignored it with several comments referring to Middle-Eastern people and their laws.

            You hit the nail on the head. I'm persecuting Christians because I stated it was a coincidence.  Talk about censorship.

            So as long as I nod my head in agreement with everything Ridge says regarding religion, then it's all fine and dandy. His world is complete.

            That's looney tunes 101 in my book.

            Like I said before, Ridge gives real Christians who can tolerate opposing beliefs a bad name. Shame on you Ridge....and you call yourself a Christian.

                I wanted make a comment in here but with the war going on I'm not sure how it'd go. I'll just throw out there that it's impossible to win an argument about religion with someone who is an atheist and you're not, and vice versa, so there's no point in it. There's better things to do.

                 

                I'll just say congrats to this guys mom for winning. Course if we bring CASH Only back I'm sure he'll say it's a curse because it's annual payments so she'll surely be $5 million in the red within a week (or whatever crazy thoughts he had that came with winning annuities).

                          Uh... Dude... uh, nobody was trying to convince you.

                          It's only if you mention Christianity in a positive light that a little midget in a big Napoleon hat will come out of a dust cloud like the Tasmanian Devil hysterically screaming bloody murder to make sure you never do it again. All you would see is this BIG NAPOLEON HAT and a little tiny pair of feet sticking out from under it running around in circles and screaming like a banshee.

                          You have no worries though. He would approve of your religious views and would not assault you for them.

                          You're safe.

                          Thank God for that.

                            You've made serious posts?

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              You seem to be in a better mood.

                              I told you you'd feel better after you took a bath!

                              Now, that wasn't so bad was it?
