“Damien, who is jesus???” – Questioner
My response, well to me, jesus is the title name given to the proposed personage of Yeshua, a prominent character in the bible’s new testament stories some claim was a son of god and also the father god as well as a presumed external spirit being forming a trinity, both acknowledged as three separate “beings, but not???” yet also claimed to still be one and the same person; yeah it makes no sense.
“Damien, what is bible ???” Questioner
My response, the bible is Christian scriptures, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. I see the bible like pretty much how I see all holy books, that they are obviously man made works of historical fiction and dogmatic propaganda generally with some amount pseudoscience, pseudohistory, and pseudomorality. I see all holy books as the propaganda for religions that are organized lying.
“Damien you said, “to you religions are organized lying.” If your definition of truth is “the intent to deceive” then I cannot see how someone who believes can be considered lying. Can you help me with this Damien?” – Questioner
My response, I see religions are organized lying (dogmatic propaganda generally with some amount pseudoscience, pseudohistory, and pseudomorality) telling nontruth as if it is proven real without evidence and disproof against such assertions as pseudotruth, not a possibility of truth, no pseudotruth is offered as fact, which is lying.
“Maybe as a system religion is a lie but my grandmother really did believe that she was going to heaven before she died. Would you say that she was lying?” – Questioner
My response, yes as a system religion is a lie and well as for your grandmother she and others are lied to.
“Damien, thank you. Can you help me understand why you would call it a lie in her case and not just misguided or lead to believe something false?” – Questioner
My response, to remind you, my quote is towards the religion themselves and did not mention the believers themselves but it is the religions that are the organized lying. I said to you that she was lied to as a victim of religions lies because religion believers are indoctrinated into the lies of religion; pseudoscience, pseudohistory, and pseudomorality.
