blufrawg10: i dont think so
caoXcao: would you like to?
blufrawg10: go ahead
blufrawg10: i need to learn somethng new today
caoXcao: Back in the day of ancient china, in a city called Hai-Nan
caoXcao: there was a man, who lived above a bakery
caoXcao: every day he would wake up to the smells of fresh bread, tantalizing his stomach,
as he was a very poor man.
caoXcao: The baker; when he learned of it had demanded the man give him more money
because he gets to smell his bread
caoXcao: After arguing, the two men decide to go to a wize profit who they hear is visiting
caoXcao: so they tell him the story, and the man gives them a solution
caoXcao: The baker was to be paid
blufrawg10: is that it
caoXcao: The baker was to be paid, by the man standing above his shop, and drop a handful
of coind onto the floor
caoXcao: the bakers payment, was the sound of the
coins clinking on the floor.
blufrawg10: oh ok i get it
blufrawg10: a sound for a smell
caoXcao: so, you must be a christian>
caoXcao: do you think I will go to hell, for being one of
blufrawg10: i believe like it says in the bible .....that whoever
believes in God and trusts him for eternal like shall be saved and
therefore go to Heaven
blufrawg10: but idont wanna disrespect nor argue your beliefs im
not that kind of person i hate being judgemental
caoXcao: i've studied christianity very intently, it's
actually an advanced form of Zoorastor
blufrawg10: yah ive heard the comparison before
blufrawg10: how old are you
caoXcao: and you?
caoXcao: that's right, nm
caoXcao: you should look closer into daoism
caoXcao: or, *Taoism
blufrawg10: i studied it vaguely in school
caoXcao: yeah, but the text books are all written by
authors who are christians, and the viewpoint is
very watered down
blufrawg10: not public school books?
caoXcao: public and private
blufrawg10: i disagree
caoXcao: ok, how much chapter wise would you say
was written about christianity?
caoXcao: about 2, 3 chapters, right?
blufrawg10: not in the books we learned from
caoXcao: who published them?
blufrawg10: i dont remember?
caoXcao: maybe it doesn't seem that way to you,
because you live in GA, a primarily christian place
caoXcao: i've lived in many places, and seen horrible
and good things done
caoXcao: china, canada, michigan, california, japan
caoXcao: i've seen christian missonaries beat chinese
children with sticks for asking the wrong questions
blufrawg10: i duno where all that is
caoXcao: where all what is?
blufrawg10: but those arent true christians im sure
caoXcao: and the 1400's catholic ministers were true
caoXcao: an entire religion who tortured peasants, and
spent the taxes on themselves?
blufrawg10: honestly a lot of catholics are christian by name
blufrawg10: thats just an association
blufrawg10: everyone says "im a christian"
caoXcao: the idea's of christianity are very correct, but
the writings are far from truth
caoXcao: you know who paul is right?
caoXcao: notice how he's the only person who says
inter-racialism is wrong, and says being gay is
wrong, etc... etc...?
blufrawg10: no its not
blufrawg10: read exodus
caoXcao: Paul is someone who has extreme mental
caoXcao: the rest of them are correct in much, wrong in
caoXcao: and on the seventh day her rested....
caoXcao: where was god all that time? and how did he
become what he is/was?
caoXcao: was he just suddenly there?
caoXcao: there never is an end to anything... time is
caoXcao: but there has to be a beginning
caoXcao: where did god begin?
caoXcao: who created god?
blufrawg10: our minds are not meant to be finite
blufrawg10: if we all knew every answer toeverything we would
be equal with God...andthats not how its meant to be
caoXcao: im not saying i believe in truth through
time, i'm asking where this guy came from
caoXcao: but, you achieve enlightenment freely
through meditation, and rational though
blufrawg10: well obviously God didnt intend on us knowing that
since he dindt record it in the Bible
caoXcao: i think if this god existed, we would be out of
this planet by now
caoXcao: for every true prophecy, there are 4 untrue
blufrawg10: the Bible is infallible
caoXcao: familiar with Nostradmus (not sure on
blufrawg10: a lot of the nostradomous prochecies are very
caoXcao: in what ways?
caoXcao: yeah, but to you was he a good christian
blufrawg10: i really havent studied a whole lot about him....so
not enough to form an opinion
blufrawg10: i do believe he has been pretty precise in some of
caoXcao: you think he is a good christian prophet
caoXcao: i mean, was he a righteous man?
blufrawg10: im said im not sure?
blufrawg10: i dont know? i dindt live with him?
blufrawg10: its not my place to be the judge ofthat
caoXcao: good, cause he was damned to hell by the very
religion that now worships him
caoXcao: in some senses
blufrawg10: i wouldnt know
caoXcao: but isn't god absolute?
caoXcao: nost. is either an oracle of god, or a fake
blufrawg10: men of God are not the only ones who are
caoXcao: who else?
blufrawg10: do you not believe that there are people who have
satanic powers like psychics and stuff?
caoXcao: psychosis is far from satanic
caoXcao: i think that there must always be a balance
caoXcao: yin, and yang
blufrawg10: see thats where we have to complete disagreements
because of relgion
caoXcao: religion is simply something for comfort,
daoism admits that itself
caoXcao: all people are free to do as they please, it is in
what they do that determines themselves
blufrawg10: i disagree
caoXcao: thoughts are not held against you
blufrawg10: alright lets move on now
caoXcao: bad people just become demons in the next
life, good people become guardians
caoXcao: why? it's simple debate
caoXcao: i am simply reasoning my choices, as you do
blufrawg10: but its no good .......im not changing my mind nor
are you...and none of this is something i havent heardbe4
caoXcao: im very sure you've not met many Daoist's...
blufrawg10: every religion brings up the same questions....who
created God etc
caoXcao: Christianity has been both bastardized since
they day it began, in daoism bad people are a part of
caoXcao: if either side gains control, then there is no
longer the choice to be good or bad, and therefore the
world comes to an end.
