How have you proved your supremacy?


#10

Yes I’m curious as well. How does an Atheist prove their supremacy?, when God is the Supreme Judge of the World.

“All institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.”

Touché.

Paine wasn’t a Christian - he was a deist. That is to say, he believed in God (The god of Nature) - just not the God of the Bible. And this is why he became one of the most hated men in America - because of his attack on Christianity, in his book "The Age of Reason" (which is where your quote comes from).

I don’t believe in institutional churches either - including any Christian church - because they are run by humans, and humans aren’t perfect. They twist the words of the Bible to fit their own agenda. I stopped going to church for this very reason.

**It’s unfortunate that the man responsible for the American Revolution and in turn, the creation of The United States of America, chose to release such a book. The remainder of his life was one of rejection and and hatred by the American People. The very people who would have remained slaves to Britain/England ― were it not for Paine’s writings during the Revolution. A native-born Englishman, fighting against his home country, in favour of America. Only 6 people attended his funeral as a result. Paine’s bones were dug up from his grave in America and they were supposed to be re-buried in his native England, but the bones were eventually lost. Such a sad way to end the legacy of the man responsible for the United States of America that is present today. He even coined “The United States of America”.

The hypocrisy is there. I see it clearly and I don’t deny it.

**The Cato Home Study Course, Vol. 3 Part 1: Thomas Paine’s ‘COMMON SENSE’
**[details=Spoiler]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9k7icY5yaw[/details]
***"Paine, next discusses the biblical view of monarchy. His interpretation is questionable at times and we need not explore it in detail. Paine’s appeal to the Bible is understandable, given the influence of the Bible on 18th century writers, but given Paine’s personal views, his emphasis on the Bible is rather curious.

Years after writing ‘COMMON SENSE’, Thomas Paine authored an infamous attack on Christianity, entitled ― ‘AGE OF REASON’. Much of the abuse Paine suffered in his later life, stemmed from this book. Thomas Paine was not an Atheist however ― he was a Deist. Deism was fairly popular in the 18th Century Enlightenment, and it basically meant the belief in a God of Nature [Declaration of Independence]. Deists typically rejected any belief in Supernatural Revelation, including the Bible. Deism was adopted by a number of Founding Fathers, including Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.

Paine was a deist when he wrote ‘COMMON SENSE’, which gives a curious slant to his appeal to biblical authority. John Adams suggested that Paine was hypocritical, for using an authority he personally rejected. This is one way of looking at the matter, but we should also remember that Paine was writing for a popular audience ― many of whom believed in the Bible. Paine was using every possible weapon in his arsenal, including the argument that monarchy is contrary to biblical teaching.":

true greatness does not need to self proclaim it through numerous spam posts. when cisco posts on srk, it is through tears of pain as he desperately seeks validation. when i post it is only for the lulz and to trigger ppl like hawk bird whoever the fuck that is.

oh please, to be insulted would mean i care what a post 09er random no name scrub with an av of some jap chick he probably jerks off to at night has to think. but i’m gonna guess its some generic neesa knight of whiteness version 10.0 who happens to be an otaku. or as the kids these days like to call them, a weaboo.
