Hmm... Well I thought the bible contained numerous verses that pertained to testing God, and that it pissed Him off... Hopefully this reborn christian will beg for forgiveness once he learns.

Or perhaps ever since this world has gone to crap, God decided that He needs to let His presence be known so this plane of debauchery that we call earth can finally adopt some sanity... it is getting awfully close to that 2012 phenomenon...

And I don't mean to force any religious views or beliefs onto any of y'all, for I am a self-proclaimed agnostic, or as my father would say: "half-assed christian." In a "glass is half empty" sort of way...

Its hard to say anything good about this story. I don't like when atheist temp God to bend to
their will by preforming stupid little parlor tricks. just to prove his existence. "if there is a God he'll knock
this glass of water right off the table" or the college professor who claimed that there was no God
and that if there was; he would come knock him off his podium. how much more arrogant can the human race become? He is the Supreme Being and has nothing to prove to you or me. now I can't answer why
this woman won the lottery; but I can say that a million bucks is nothing compared to spending eternity
knowing that your son is in eternal <snip>ation. maybe, he has become a believer I hope so. but he
better quit throwing his little temper tantrums like a 5 year old and start taking our heavenly Father
serious and start showing him a little respect!

I love stories like this........

Isaiah 61:7 "Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs." The mother got 2 blessings her son becoming a believer  and $1 million dollars.........

Thank you Jesus!!!!!!!!

It's amazing how much energy Vision expends writing his Bull schmidt. The sad part is, the more he writes, everyone reading this thread will see how Vision is incapable of reason, logic, grammer, common sense, and a sense of street smart.

The hole keeps getting deeper and deeper as this puppet keeps writing.

He sits in lurk mode for as long as it takes. Sometimes months go by without someone mentioning God as the answer to their prayer or whatever. Meanwhile back at headquarters, 17,398,913 people who prayed didn't get it answered by God. Then when God is mentioned in a thread, and someone puts their two cents in, he comes out of the woodwork, like a snake waiting to leap.

So does Ridge, except that he doesn't lurk. He does his comedy routine most of the time acting as If it's unwittingly done, yet he knows It may be at someone's expense.  Yet it continues until someone mentions God as the cause of their success. And then when someone puts their two cents in, here comes the almighty protector of the Christian faith. He comes to save the day, and erradicate all the poor folks of this world who are too logical. He's tired of the witch hunts.

The great protector. Protecting the believers from the attack on Christianity.

I hate to burst his bubble, but it's not an attack on Christianity, it's an attack on stupidity.

We no longer rely on signs from the heavens to tell us how to behave next.

We no longer rely on diseases and plagues as signs of the "Whatever God at hand" not happy with us, thus punishing us.

We no longer believe the Earth is flat.

We no longer believe the universe is 6 thousand years old.

We no longer believe that we should stone folks to death for whatever.



DUH....which way did he go?

visiondude's avatar - eye3logo

your right,  ridge and i would rather have your life Puke

here's a little ethics about how truth works,  with a bucket load of common sense throw in for validation, joker.

you keep swearing what you sell in here is "the truth". 

every one of them, "oh they are the truth,  just watch the video's"

funny how everyone of them is completely opposite of each other,  and side by side,  they would CANCEL each other out

 you change your "truth" nearly daily.

just in this thread alone,  no telling how many different "truth's" you have spit out.

after i highlighted your alien monkey business,  you left that in the dust of the earth

didn't stick with that one for very long


me?  same one for 30+ years

go ahead and lie to yourself that i have been "wacked" for 30+ years,  and you are still "searching"


it's not like your a candidate anytime soon for the go-to guy for picking what is true in life,  but how about a little thread brevity to chew on?

not one  'anti-god' scenario in here matches another. 

 everyone has come up with a hybrid version of what they thought happened, or parroted from a site that they thought sounded ballpark correct that fits what they want to believe happened

you don't find the truth of life that way,  because the truth of life isn't a custom ordered commodity.

whatever the truth is,  you adjust to it because it's right,   not because it sounds good.

you can always tell when people aren't the least bit interested in the real truth,   because it doesn't match what they want it to be

not one anti-god scenario  in agreement, even in here 

 every one has "evolutionized" their own version of it,  and evolution itself keeps evolving in it's "interpretation" whenever you discuss it with someone.

anyone that picks truth over agenda knows the basic premise of truth never changes

the historocity of Christianity has NEVER CHANGED.

from it's inception,  it basic message / premise has survived intact without changing for thousands of years.

the "many translations" arguement is rediculous,  God fully protected the integrity of the premise of His word

from it's inception,  when God spoke the world into existence,  till now

some have <snip>ized it's message in order to attempt to make it their own,  but no one has changed the premise

you AND evolution change daily,  and even within the term 'evolution" (meaning ever evolving),  it's not a compliment,  it's a  strike 3 count strike out against evolution, because you are referring to the past when attempting to debate the validity of evilution,  and neither of you can build one lasting premise without infusing a "guess" into the explanation thereof

within evilution,  there is no definitive premise

it's a mess of a guess

Christianity?  30+  years of the same EXACT definition

for every believer on this board,  they have the same rock foundation to stand upon,  on thru into eternity.

  one that never changes


searching,  and admitting you ARE searching = cool

guessing for the sake of searching,  part of the process, and also = cool

wildly guessing,  and selling it as "fact" = evil


on this subject matter,  the MOST important of all,  one things for mortuary certain,   historical facts never evolve or change

if tonight you have set aside some other newly amalgamated mess of a guess,  in favor of a side by side comparison between you and me,  lest you suffer from short term memory loss....

....your the one that stated aliens came down and inseminated apes.

i will take my chances on what people believe about me after that Green laugh


we know your grammar is good

perfectiming REALLY knows all about your excellant grammar.

so does truecritic and stack


Strange how creepy individuals come to a lottery site, but don't comment on the lottery. They lurk until something about God is mentioned. Then they go off on some dimented rant about fairytale blues stories.

They're like dormant viruses just waiting to find a host.

Silly brainwashed Christians. Warped minds.....


I know the truth.

I'm right, you're wrong.

You're evil, I'm not.

God planned it this way. No matter how ludicrous it sounds, it was God's will. .

Left curves....God did it intentionally...

Speed of light...God sped it up.....

Who created God?....He has an exmeption card in his wallet....

Bad things happening to good people......The Devil is to blame.....

Chaos in the world.....God's plan...

20,000 kids dying every single day........It's not God's fault Man is evil.....

Earthquakes in San Francisco......God hates fags....

No matter how good or bad, there is an answer for everything. Either God's will, or the Devil.

See how neatly wrapped everything is?

You name it, we have an answer.


Other religions...........Satan decieving the multitudes.....

Why do men have nipples? .........Another of God's left curves.....

Humans have tail bones..........A punishment by God....

Mudskippers........God testing us...

See, everything can be easily explained in our life repair kit. In fact, we have a special offer today only. Buy one answer, and get the second answer at half price. But you must act NOW !

I am not going through 9 years or even anything but your current post where you lied.  I reframed from calling you a liar.  I said "I think your judgment is bias and that you make up stuff to suit your taste."

The lies that you posted are in grey - the correct reasoning or version is preceeded by a letter and a full explanation by me.  I've added minor comments to help you understand, those are in blue, below.


"your the one that attempted to get me to shut up in the statistically speaking thread, just because i made anti system remarks..." No, that is not true, I have never tried to shut you up to prevent you from posting your opinions.   See B) below for the real reason

B) There comes a point where the normal person can see that the debate cannot be won.  You seem to think that I am trying to "bully" (to use your word) you.  Sorry, you misinterpret my intent.  I was hoping to bring some common sense to the situation.  I wasn't trying to shut you up.  I also attempted to stop the side I was on as well.  I back off and don't post in hopes that will bring an end to a thread that is excruciating to read.  Or I see no reason to post.   Then when I don't post (I turn right, I turn left, I stand still - they are all wrong in your eyes), you attack me for that as well as when I do post.  You are not recognizing the right thing when it is right in front of your eyes.  You think I have some kind of preplanned tactic to attack you by not posting or by posting or by telling you what I think or ??? - no matter what I say (or others say, as well) you attack it.  The traits you admire in "others" on your side - you do not recognize those same traits in others fighting on the other side.   There appears to be only a handful of people here at Lottery Post that that have that spirit.  A lot of the same people jump into these threads.  They have things to say, they have opinions to express and they jump in.

"you always say something to me,  because your true wish is to turn me into a politically correct version of what you want me to be,  so you can control and filter what i say,  so it becomes your opinion" No I have never once tried to control you.  I attempted to get you to understand the situation and hoped that common sense would lead you to the same conclusions that I pointed out.  Obviously, you did not reach the same conclusions because you continued posting...see C):

C)  Not at all.  These battles are not going to be solved.  I can't convince anyone of my opinions - You can't convince anyone of yours.  Why continue to argue?  Why?  What sense does it make?  We are helpless to bomb each other like real wars in real countries - and that is the only way any of us will stop.  But why does it have to come to that.  Everyone has stated their opinions at some point - everyone should just stop the arguing at that point.  Just bow out gracefully.  Or wait until Todd decides to lock the thread.  I'd prefer grownups to stop on their own without Todd's intervention.  If you actually have some other plan, post it, I'd like to hear it.

"you started attacking my grammar,  or garbage that has nothing to do with what goes on." Another case where you are misinterpreting an issue, this time regarding your grammar, spelling, etc;...see D)...

D)  Check back carefully in the QP vs SP thread.  I wasn't the first to bring up your grammar/spelling.  However, while it has nothing to do with the actual subject, it does have something to do with these threads.  EVERYONE here should put some effort into spelling/grammar if they are going to publically post.  It is rather easy in comparison to what it used to be.  Todd has even put a spell-checker in the editors.  I don't ask perfection.  I don't ask something that I don't do for every post I make.  I used to keep a dictionary close by.  Everyone makes typos - that is truly something that can't be helped.  Otherwise, the written word is all that we have here to communicate.  That is why it is important to see at least 5th grade English rules being followed.  It makes it easier to understand.  It helps for people to take you seriously.  How would you like Todd to write in some haphazard way?  How about instructions for how to use your computer or programs written slipshod manner?

I might also point out that I did not continually harp on you about spelling/grammar.  I made my point and do try not try to bring up the issue continually - even though it plagues me to sift through it on a daily basis.  But you don't recognize that.   Something else you may not be aware of is the fact that I have mentioned to others on here how to use spell-check.  Some have followed through and it isn't personal pride that it was me that told them, it is just a good feeling to know that they improved themselves.  I don't brag about it.  I don't bring it up.  Others have taken an indignant position and continue to ignore spelling/grammar when posting.   I think people from other countries take great pride in their English/spelling/grammar and I silently give them a lot of credit. Sometimes, I've given them credit publically.  Many do a better job than I do.  I would like to see the same pride displayed in these and other forums from us.

"the difference between you and me is when it is wrong, i will call it what it is." I pointed out that this statment is not 100% true and even admitted that you have a point in regards to me not making everything 100% public, because I don't believe it is the right thing to do.  I don't air all dirty laundry for everyone.  I don't try to get into arguments over who is a lying at the moment because it ends up that every post here will simply be "you're lying"..."you're a liar"...see E)...

E) Well, you may have a point.  I don't make everything public.  Actually my opinion is that several things should be private.   For instance, you'd never catch me on Jerry Springer even if I remotely had any of the problems people display on there.

However, to point out, you never volunteered anything to ridge about his "tactics" - until I mentioned it in my last post.  So, you really can't claim that your record is perfect either.  I wouldn't give you bragging rights on the issue.

"what ridge said was true,  the minute guys like you beging to lose your grip on that marginalize squeeze job,  they move straight to lying about the person,  and you did that about me in your above post" Again, pointing out to you that if your statement is even the slightest bit true, then ridge has NEVER had a grip because he skips any real content and moves straight to derogatory remarks and accuses everyone that he doesn't like...see F)...

F)  Yeah, ridge is the pinnacle of debate.  Almost all his posts are somehow derogatory against some religion or some nation or some person.  His posts seldom offer any indication that he is on the same page as you regarding religion.  Many of his posts suggest that he isn't religious because he is a regular sinner.

well,   you added some rediculous arrogant aspect to it,  and you are confused when facing supreme confidence in a situation, and turning it into an arrogant mud sling.

but yeah,  kind of a high 5 on your part for illustraing why i can afford to be confident,  because i do have the answers.

with the exceptions of ...

(1) God didn't speed up the light,  He created the light to travel at the speed He desires.   He can mash the gas,  or tap the brakes on that issue anytime He wants.   i never said He "sped it up".   you need to pay more attention during our history lessons.

(2) God does not hate "fags" (as you call them).   He loves gay people,  so don't take your angst and turn it into HATE.

everything else is in the ballpark,  thanks for demonstrating why Christianity has been immovable since it's inception


not sure about the nipple thing.  we can let you specuhate on that one,  since you have some weird obsession with it


what is your "truth" flavor of the day?


how about an explanation on sasquatch + aliens,   and don't forget,  you got a little hot under the collar when i noted none of you can ever definitively define "evolution"

after i noted that,  your angst kicked into overdrive. 

why,  if your postion in life is so "cemented"?

Please bear in mind what I said peviously: If I go right, you don't like it.  If I go left, you don't like it.  If I stand still, you don't like it.  No matter what anyone says to you, you don't like it.

With that in mind, if you are going to make comments regarding my post and what I said and my explanation of what everything that I said means, then it better be in the form of:

1) OK, I understand

2) I don't understand...XXX  (and then ask a specific question).  And I will try to answer you.

If you simply don't like what I said and you want to argue, you are on your own.  Don't expect me to keep explaining the truth to you.  I originated what I said, I know what I meant and I explained what I meant, you are not competent to tell me what I meant.  That's like going to the art museum and explaining what van Gogh meant when he painted a picture - as if you and you alone always know the truth and the artist doesn't know what he meant at all.
