I've really come around on this stuff. I suppose I've been largely insulated from a lot of stuff, and really had my entire personality changed (for the worse, in most ways) in the last 8 or 9 years. If Christianity is correct, then I should, of necessity, need God as a crutch. Christianity is happy to break your legs to help the process along. Then if you limp enough, they praise you as a saint. YOU rely on God the most.  ::)  Anyway, so I'll be adding my own video soon to Youtube on this. I really couldn't care less about blaspheming the Holy Spirit, Zeus, or any other mythical God, but I'm gonna say something given that I live in a largely Christian-derived culture and have to confront that culture, and that I'm sick of people a priori assuming a Christian viewpoint (no matter how dumb). I guess my vid will be more about Christians than Christ.

Gee, now I'm really convinced how enlightened atheism is. ::)

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Well, it's still funny how people enjoy "blaspheming the Holy Spirit."

You do that if that makes you feel better.

God bless you.

Actually, I think the prize is a DVD copy of the "must see video": "The God Who Wasn't There."
Looking at the videos, what amuses me most is the fact that these so called "deniers of religion" are actually undertaking a Rite of Initiation into a religion without even realising it! Quite a few of them who posted videos of themselves (baptism into the religion) tell us that everyone should see "The God Who Wasn't There" (preach the Gospel to all Nations) as well as making the required "denial of the Holy Spirit" (proclamation of the creed).
Nah.....they're not gullible approval junkies at all....  :D

Ah, you're right, it is a video...been a while since I looked at the site, was thinking it was a t-shirt for some reason...thanks for the clarification. In that case it's certainly not worth it...the video's available for free over on isohunt. ;)
