Main 10 Ways to Tell on the off chance that You are a Christian

10 - You overwhelmingly preclude the presence from securing a great many divine beings guaranteed by different religions, however feel offended when somebody precludes the presence from claiming yours. 

9 - You feel offended and "dehumanized" when researchers say that individuals developed from other life structures, however you have no issue with the bible based claim that we were made from DIRT. 

8 - You chuckle at polytheists, however you have no issue having faith in a triune god. 

7 - Your face turns purple when you become aware of the "barbarities" credited to Allah, however you don't even jump when catching wind of how God/Jehovah butchered all the children of Egypt in "Departure" and requested the end of whole ethnic gatherings in "Joshua" including ladies, kids, and trees! 

6 - You chuckle at Hindu convictions that worship people, and Greek guarantees about divine beings resting with ladies, yet you have no issue accepting that the blessed soul impregnated Mary, who then conceived a man-god who got murdered, returned to life and afterward climbed into the sky. 

5 - You are eager to use your life searching for little provisos in the logically settled time of Earth (few billion years), however you don't discover anything the matter with accepting dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and speculating that Earth is a couple of eras old. 

4 - You accept that the whole populace of this planet except for the individuals who impart your convictions - however barring those in all opponent organizations - will use Eternity in a boundless Hell of Suffering. But consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "adoring." 

3 - While advanced science, history, topography, science, and material science have neglected to persuade you generally, some numbskull moving around on the floor talking in "tongues" may be all the confirmation you have to "demonstrate" christianity. 

2 - You characterize 0.01% as a "high achievement rate" regarding the matter of addressed supplications to God. You consider that to be confirmation that petition to God meets expectations. What's more you feel that the staying 99.99% FAILURE was essentially the will of god. 

1 - You really know a ton short of what numerous skeptics and rationalists do about the biblical canon, christianity, and church history - yet at the same time call yourself a christian

The family Campanulaceae (also bellflower family), of the order Asterales, contains about 2000 species in 70 genera of herbaceous plants, shrubs, and rarely small trees, often with milky non-toxic sap. Among them are the familiar garden plants Campanula (bellflower), Lobelia, and Platycodon (balloonflower).
This family is almost cosmopolitan but concentrated in the Northern Hemisphere. However in the Southern Hemisphere, South Africa is remarkably rich in members of this family. These species are absent in the Sahara, Antarctica and northern Greenland.

Most current classifications include the segregate family Lobeliaceae in Campanulaceae as subfamily Lobelioideae.

Opening Rant

Ok. I know the first questions on everyone's minds are: "Who the hell is Tommy and why should we give a shit what he has to rant about?". Well, there is probably no easy answer to the latter, so I'll do what I can to answer the first one.

Who is Tommy?
Short answer: I'm a software engineer/musician in Atlanta, Georgia with a family and an attitude. I see and read things in the course of my day that make me want to scream, and, since public screaming is frowned upon in most places, I decided to contain my rants to these pages. My sense of humor is quite biting at times and can be downright mean-spirited, and I intend to pull no punches in my rants. This should make for an interesting comment section, as I have some decidedly non-mainstream views on some touchy subjects, including, but not limited to: religion, politics, society, and the media. I hope you will enjoy reading what I have to say, even if you don't agree. I also hope you will leave comments so I can tell just how many people think I'm a raving lunatic and how many are just as twisted as I am.

Why Should I Read This Blog?
Well, maybe you shouldn't. But, if you are brave enough to test the waters of the Gulf of Tommy, you will be rewarded in one of two ways. One, you may just find out that you agree with some of my views and are glad to know you aren't the only one who feels the same about a particular subject. Two, you will get a chance to rebut my statements and tell the world (at least the part of the world that reads my blog) just what an ass you think I am.

So, anyway, thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope you have an enriching experience, either positive or negative. Now...on to the ranting!
