List of Biblical verses that suggest God was a volcano

This list of Bible verses that prove beyond all reasonable doubt god was a volcano will be regularly updated and re-circulated. The ‘God’ referred to here is Yahweh of the Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. If you would like to submit some verses for the collection then please add them as a comment. Exodus 3:12 And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.”   Exodus 13:21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.   Exodus 15:7 In the greatness of your majesty you threw down those who opposed you. You unleashed your burning anger; it consumed them like stubble.   Exodus 19:18 Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the LORD descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain trembled violently.   Exodus 24:17 To the Israelites the glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain.   Exodus: 32:14 And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.   Exodus 40:38 So the cloud of the LORD was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the Israelites...

Paganism, Folk religion, & Ethnic/indigenous religion

Paganism, Folk religion, & Ethnic/indigenous religion   Paganism: broadly defined as anyone involved in any religion other than one of the main world religions.   Folk religion: broadly defined as anyone involved in any religion deemed distinct from the official doctrines and practices of organized religion.   Ethnic/indigenous religion: broadly defined as anyone involved in any religion deemed “primal religion,” “primitive religion,” and “tribal religion” so it is overlapping with “folk religion” but particular in relationship to an ethnic group, thus speak of Chinese and African indigenous religions, but can also refer to popular institutionalized religions, such as Hinduism of the Indians, Judaism of the Jews, Shenism of the Han Chinese, and Shinto of the Japanese.   Finally, paganism also overlaps with “folk religion” as well as “Ethnic/indigenous religion” and can express a worldview that is animistic, totemistic, shamanistic, pantheistic, deistic, deityistic, monotheistic, duotheistic, polytheistic, or monotheistic persuasions. Paganism originally meant “rustic, rural, country dweller ” a traditional class of herders/farmers/laborers or “nonparticipant, civilian” later referring to anyone involved in any religion other than one of the main world religions, specifically non-christian. Thus, paganism and folk religion are relatively the same thing to me, just different words meaning relatively the same things so I just use the term paganism.   Here are the religious terms defined:   Animism: the belief that natural objects and phenomena and the universe itself possess souls and consciousness or the belief in spiritual beings or agencies.   Bitheism: a belief in two gods (brothers/ father son) or two goddesses (sisters/ mother daughter).   Deism: god created the universe and started it functioning, but is...

Atheist for Non-Aggression

I am an Atheist for Non-Aggression. I am not nor have I ever said I was a pacifist, I am for striving to minimize aggression or violence and do believe violence can be justified in self-defense and other-defense.   Here is My “Anarcho-Humanist” Non-Aggression-Axiom   My anarcho-humanist non-aggression-axiom is centered on the acknowledgment, respect and support for every human’s self-ownership. This honor of self ownership of my fellow humans including a ever present respect for other people who are fellow “dignity beings” which also have self-ownership rights just like me and are equal in human worth.   My anarcho-humanist non-aggression-axiom is a humanistic call for Anti-Violence, Anti-Spanking, Anti-Circumcision, Anti-Bullying, Anti-Violence, Anti-sexual Violence, Anti-child maltreatment, Anti-animal cruelty, Anti-Domestic Violence, and Anti-Verbal Violence (Threats, Character Assassination, Intimidation), Pro-Ethics, Pro-Body Sovereignty, Pro-Empathy and Equality. Let positive change begin with me, for I realize I am responsible for there is no god to save us or protect us. For those who think attacking religion is some kind of Character Assassination because its people that are religious. You are confused because character assassination is attacking people with abusive name calling not confronting religion dishonesty. Character Assassination is not being justifiably mentally aggressive as in one challenging, holy figures, gods, religions, myths, superstitions, beliefs, or deluded or misinformed ideas. Character Assassination is not meaning strong stances, aggressive challenge in rational arguments, or pitilessly exposing injustice, harm or oppression. It is our passion and an honored chosen duty to promote Non-Aggression and speak the truth of atheism and ethical behavior so people don’t stay misinform abused or oppressed. I value anti-violence (I am not a pacifist...

Religion is an Evolved Product

Religion is an Evolved Product   100,000 years ago religion was loosely formalize, then 13,000 years ago organized religion was developed, around 12,000 to 10,000 years ago there was the formalization of goddesses but their true history could go back at least 45,000 but they may have been more animistic then lastly 6,000 5,000 years ago men created the male god. Yes a long history of bullshit.   The animistic even mother goddess beliefs of prehistoric peoples are beyond ordinary religious meanings of things we think of today like animal’s serpents, bulls, cats, birds; earth realm water, mountains, trees; and celestial realm sun, moon, stars and plants being spirits, having intentionally or and attribution of mother goddess beliefs.   Specifically the serpent, or snake, is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols and often directly connects to animistic mother goddess beliefs. Snakes have been associated with some of the oldest rituals known to humankind and represent dual expression of good and evil. In some cultures snakes were fertility symbols, for example the Hopi people of North America performed an annual snake dance to celebrate the union of Snake Youth (a Sky spirit) and Snake Girl (an Underworld spirit) and to renew fertility of Nature.   The snake dance is a prayer to the spirits of the clouds, the thunder and the lightning, that the rain may fall on the growing crops. In other cultures snakes symbolized the umbilical cord, joining all humans to animistic mother goddess beliefs or mother earth.   The great goddess deity or originally a kind of mother goddess cult later male gods as...

Arguments over the term god?

“Damien AtHope. Hi I hope you’re having a great day. Do you think there could be a possibility that God does exist?” Questioner My response, what is a god? “A God is a being who is eternal, that is wise, has unlimited power, and knows everything.” Questioner My response, you did not answer the question, what is a god? you said a claim about a god not what a god is. If I asked you what a dog was who you say a pet as if I did not know what a dog was you get saying it is a pet, loyal, loving, or protector still could be many possible things that fall under the many labels none of which clarifies I know what a dog is. Just how I want what a dog is or what is a god, needs more than some titles or claimed behaviors without first defining that the thing is that we are talking. So What is a god? “Damien, I think Questioner actually did answer the question “what is a god” under your parameters. tbh. A god is a being, A dog is an animal, who is eternal, that is mortal ….etc.” – Challenger My responce, what is a hod? A being, so now you know what it is right? “Well a being that is eternal, fills in more gaps. The rest of the sentence fills in enough gaps that it eliminates 99 percent of the known world for most people. So it’s a clear enough description to define a god to most people.” – Challenger My responce, A dog is an animal, a...

As a rationalist I strongly stand up for reality

“Damien, do you believe creation could be a possibility yet very improbable, even life itself at a single cell level evolving there after pending creator’s Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnipresence ???” – Questioner My response, “I can only assess the possibility of things from the reference limited to reality, so no.” “Reality as determined through a sensory filter that demonstrably cannot detect 90% of said reality. We’re peeking in on reality through a keyhole. There’s more than meets the eye. While nothing is what it seems, how can what we see be what we get?” – Challenger My response, Reality is only assessed by tests in reality so do you have some valid non-realty method? “Those tests are unfortunately locked onto our sensory filter. Our senses are fallible and only work on 10% of the bigger picture.” – Challenger My response, so, no test method that is outside reality means all we know as I said is reality, right? “We don’t know what reality is, dear friend. In fact the brightest minds in the world are leaning towards the nature of reality being in fact, not at all real. ” – Challenger To make the “anti-claim” is a hidden acceptance of reality to gain such knowledge so you already are seemingly agreeing with my reality to know reality starting point. If you don’t start with my reality point what do you think you gather this claimed non-reality evidence that we do not know reality? I feel your claim attaches not an understanding of reality to even then go to justifying it thus you appeal presuppositional to the thing you mean to...
