(CNN)–A man in India is living in exile after being charged with blasphemy for debunking a "weeping Jesus".

Sorry you are making no sense.. can you explain what exactly " his places of habitat are not only the inner places of inward spaces but his most high place of the very highest dimension of outward space" means. Are you trying to claim that god is everywhere? Even so, it is just a preference you want to believe and with out any evidence Harry Potter could just as easily inhabit those inner spaces you talk about.”
Lionlllamb answers EDNA saying, “God dwells upon the innerness of sub-micro-celestial space-places deeply seeded upon the insides of our bodies of unknown to us places. God does also dwell upon a dimension of such great size that our known universe is but a miniscule dot or as a grain of sand upon the beach. The God that is everywhere is the Holy Spirit being the absolute nothingness that is everywhere and anyplace.
There is more nothingness among the atoms than there is atomic material such as neutrons and protons and electrons. The space between these three atomic essences is as great as the volume of space between a star and its planets. Nothingness goes without compromises as being of more substance than all atomic material combined!
looionlylamb I understand the atomic structures and the "spaces" between but what makes you think that aliens live there? plus the nothingness you talk of is actually seething with virtual particles. It is also postulated that with in these atomic structures there could be other dimensions of space... but in what way does that invoke a god for you? And how would your god it was living in a body ...it could just as easily be inhabiting an atom in a lump of rock...
You assume (among a great many other things) that there is nothing between atomic particles. It would be more factual to state that there is nothing we can currently measure or observe between these particles. To assert that, since we can't observe it, it isn't there leaves open the argument against the existence of god...
India STAHP! Seriously! You're better than this! Shame on You!
The end is near now that extreme Xtians and Muxlims are starting to think and act alike ;-)
Starting to? You have been acting that way for quite awhile now.
Starting to? They always have.
Lap-lustered deisms denials do forlorn the flagellum of the peasant ridiculer in "bemoaning laments" reprisals within the base commoners lewd tribulations of tried and still trying lack-lustered piteous nuances. We are all as peas in the pods of life's abundances in the cosmologic cellular matrix of life-living measures meant to reasonably prove or deny the bustles and hustles toward twain fidelities of margined society’s needlessly but nevertheless becoming pottage mal-aligned accruals lying wasted within. God forbade as we do deny and still yet we are. Where then does justifiable will become an averaged domicile of cursed acquittals for the ills of generalist meanderings sake?

And your afterlife.. are there clothes in your heaven? will you be naked or old, young or the age that you died? will babies grow i heaven to adults or do they stay as diapered infants? what age would they grow to before they stop?”
Lionlylamb writes, “We or rather our bodies are celestial constants being constrained by cellular cosmologies of consistencies becoming the material essences all life forms wherever life is so established upon terrestrial places we call planets. The highest visions of cosmologies unknowable to us is where God does live out his life and in godly animated inner celestial domains are we afforded to live out this life upon terra firma until death itself does relinquish us from the bondages of cellular issues duly constraining our soul which is tied in essences to God’s Holy Spirit which is Nothingness itself as are our souls so to be nothingness entwined upon or rather within our material bodies.
I have no answers to your posted quarrels of sedentary values commonly bereft lacking candor of wordage questions. I am not God nor am I of God’s families. I am but a first born son of a common man and his loving wife. My brother and I live within our means together in this life. May you someday learn to see what I have long sought out and am slowly putting together to make fully known freely to all.
Lionylamb.. Having a sycophantic relationship with a being of celestial origins and speaking as if you are channeling Shakespeare cannot be healthy. If you are trying to teach, I would suggest that you use the verbiage of today, and communicate with your fellow humans with more clarity. You claim to have no answers yet boldly claimed we are the adopted ... where did that notion arise.

Test ED just a test
I feel we become adopted by God due we are not of God’s families for his places of habitat are not only the inner places of inward spaces but his most high place of the very highest dimension of outward space.
Because of Christ Jesus’ life and death struggle are we found worthy to be adoptively born into the Godly referenced places be they the inner confines of the atomized cosmologies or the highest cosmology beyond any mere mortals’ contemplative comprehending. We are mere transients upon a place caught in the middle of inner space and outer space references and only if I dare say, by adoption of our souls can we ever be made whole in the places where does reside God and all his subjects. If I sound Shakespearean I am sorry for so coming off in my writing to be such.
Furthering my views, "Our souls are the nothingness that surrounds all our body's matted material we call atoms. Much the way of outer space relativities are voided with nothingness our body's nothingness is ever twined together in ways of yet unknowable issues. Does then one's soul become disentangled thru cremation? Is our soul then freed to become part of a greater nothingness to traverse toward the realm of a place so huge, we will never here truly know but in faith hold fast to believe such a vast place does exist? Or will we stay put within the nothingness that weighs heavily upon this world's essence? I try very hard to simplify my views. I really do!
Lionlylamb.. Sorry you are making no sense.. can you explain what exactly " his places of habitat are not only the inner places of inward spaces but his most high place of the very highest dimension of outward space" means. Are you trying to claim that god is everywhere? Even so, it is just a preference you want to believe and with out any evidence Harry Potter could just as easily inhabit those inner spaces you talk about.

The Universally-Formed Rats of Triune Manifestation
We all live amid two chasms of cosmological orders. We have the inner-Rats and the outer-Rats. The inner-Rats is atomically made and is the universal construct of the outer-Rats. One could not have an outer without an inner. Both are synonymously of the same natures. It stands to reason the inner-Rats was made first and the outer-Rats came into being only after the passive finalization of the inner-Rats was made near complete. The inner-Rats is transcendent and fixed while the outer-Rats is ascendant and malleable in their dualities natures.
The third Rats is of life itself made from the inner-Rats living upon the terrestrial faces of the celestial outer-Rats. This third Rats is the celled Rats or the cellular cosmologic orders of all life forms made anywhere cellular life can gain a foothold to evolve and gain in the abundant natures toward the evolution of its structures ever evolving. Without the two main Rats coming into existence; living cellular cosmic rats could not exist.
The trinity or threefold nature of chasm cosmic rats is being one of the greatest and grandest gestures ever to have been formulated! To say God had nothing to do with such a feat of cosmologic inter-dependencies seems an infallible congruency inconsistent for one to say or think otherwise. To say the nature of God is to keep inflating the physical elements of the outer Rats while deflating the essence needs for the inner-Rats leaves one to wonder about the third cosmological construct’s real nature for having been created. Why then is there cellular Rats of living cosmic rats and when did such life become established?
The history of multifaceted cosmological expansionism within celestial symmetries comes from the terrestrial complacencies of planetary regularities and solarized objectivism wherever the abundance of inner cosmic rats coalesces to form stars, planets and moons among many other fragmented structures within the spatial confines of a universally formed Rats.
Life, upon the celestial shorelines of the terrestrially compliant are as a biologic ‘cellularistic’ cosmological constant, and were ever formed and are continually forming seemingly unto forever as well placed living conglomerations in naturalisms arcades of wondrous cavalcades marching in steps of melancholy tributes to God upon the most high Rats of universally formidable formations on the highest of unimaginable grounds!
Too long, too boring.....
My bud must be bored again, lol.
Don't get stuck in here now, Akira. There are some old farts running around in here. It's not safe.
Thanks, mama, I'll keep that in mind!

Akira, you are mostly correct, but I think you are mistaken if you think that most Mennonite are not progressive.
We do teach that everyone is to choose what faith they have, and that just because you are born into one faith family you will not automatically have that faith.
My children will choose their own faith.
But the majority of Mennonites are progressive when it comes to technology are reaching out and engaging the world.
There are now more Mennonite Christians in India than in North America.
Also many Mennonite are now engaging in politics.
In Canada the Minister of Justice (in charge of the judges and the RCMP) is a Mennonite Christian as is the Minister of Trade, Minister of International development and as well as being part of the Finance Department. Also the most popular Premier (like a Governor of a Provence) in Canada is a Mennonite Christian.
We believe in social justice and traditional family values and taking care of the poor and the oppressed.
MennoKnight, I know that there are varying degrees of what the faithful adhere to, just as there is in every faction of the Christian faith.
There are some Mennonites that adhere more to the Anabaptist way, for example.
The label 'progressive' is not what many Mennonites embrace, for there are differing beliefs in different Mennonite communities.
I am just commenting on what I have encountered in the Mennonite communities in my travels.
We have MennoKnight muslims too, we call them Shia, and you call them Shiite, denier of truth absolute GOD, gangsters, progressive when it comes to making nu clear bombs, technologically dumb, though, are reaching out and engaging the world superpowers in to wars, Iranian Shia, secular s, filthy skunks.
Monty Python said it best:
let the heathens spill theirs on the dusty ground.
I love me some Monty Python.
Thank you Booty for giving us Monty Python's goodly humor! The Flying Circus and all his quirks are soon forgot! Good thing that Monty is now being forever a netted parade of sheer lunacy to be gratefully made a public spectacle for many to lighten up one's social hardness!
"It's medical experiments for the lot of ya"
Monty Python is a comedy sketch group, not a singular person.
that might b the problem for us pagans because we believe in using protection, last thing we want is STD or worse to bring a child into this world when we are not ready to properly care for them, poverty is a problem we don't want the child to have a bad life, only the best.
but maybe if we start to breed like rabbits we would be the majority,but that would be irresponsible, not our style
I write my Word of wordage to give light to those who are more educated then to mobs that dare do amass their tinsel garnishments ever tingling admonishments of needlessness commentaries made ill wares covetousness. The young of foolishness does ever laundry the one's who belay infidelities consuming tendrils of cynical sarcasms. Yes, I know things yet to be known by the academia of taught tirades left without guided understandings in the cosmologically referenced ideologies' stalled accolades. Be though at peace in one's peasant undertakings and know that life is given meaning if one but seeks it out!
Mr. Lamb, Tylenol should be paying you an endorsement fee.
You write for yourself; a vain endeavor that is not meant to enlighten anyone to your thoughts, but to obscure them.
When you choose to, you can make yourself very clear.
Therefore, you must not choose to.
Your continuous butchery of the English language makes academics wince.
Continue to write all you want, but I expect you get great joy out of anyone questioning what you've said; it gives you a chance to write even more nonsense.
I am going to withhold that joy from you by not answering you anymore today.
Do the words "borderline personality disorder" mean anything to you?
Wait, don't answer that.
I suspect you do.
This is the one personality of yours that I find the most tedious, and the most laughable.
Well said Akira.
Well stated. As they say, "a mind is a terrible thing to waste". He has the intelligence to contribute but ignorantly hides in fantasy.
Your so nice comments are duly noted for reference sakes. I shudder in candor as to your next post for it may leave a ting of unpleasant pleasing upon ones societal considerations giving rise to a stiffened leg if one does drift ever onward into the great abyss! :-) :-( :-)
While you pat yourself on the back in the delusion that anyone listens to your babble, consider how much more you could have contributed to the world if you had used your mind to be productive. You have this international stage and all you are doing is making a fool. What a terrible waste from someone who seems like they COULD be intelligent.
It seems as though my "fantasy" holds much weight for said fantasia cannot be dethroned except for waylaying cynicism's against the embodiment and not the word! My cosmologically endorsed "fantasy" cannot be refuted therefore many peasants try unendingly to un-vizierate my thought provocations whereby thru the years I have invested much due thoughts regarding cosmological accolades. It stands to reason that the young in views of the cosmological tree of triune manifestations will seem lost upon that which was made thru many years of and even still measured by conjured thoughts.
A thought cannot be refuted soley because it exists in one's mind.
Akira kind lady,
A thought revealed by word, ones wordage cannot be levied upon those still yet weakened and not yet fully enlightened upon the lit luminosities of said wordage.
No longer worth a response.
Maybe we should all ignore him so that he can continue to amuse only himself. What a waste of his time and ours.
That's my intent, Observer. Why bother trying to decipher drivel?
Wordages, like wordiosity wordism, exists to wordly wordwise wordentia, to the worded wordanity.

Ike, in your commentaries only two questions were asked of you and you seem to know less than a child in kindergarten. Feel free to attend the school of one’s choosing!
Now you've done it Ike.
Ike, ll is doing what is known as 'vanity writing'; he requires no answer, and indeed, makes it impossible to have any sort of meaningful dialog by deliberately and willfully making his writings nonsensical.
This is his game, and he enjoys it immensely.
Although it is his right to post whatever he wants, it is also your right not to a) read them, and b) avoid the headache of trying to discern what he's trying to say.
'Jabberwocky' is clearer.
@Akira, very well said sir.
Ike, fyi, Akira is a woman.
my bad akira. Well this was fun, now I can check "Tried to have a religious debate with a maniac on cnn.com" off my list of things to do. Now I'm gonna clean up n' go out n' enjoy this beautiful world that the giant spaghetti monster made for us all to enjoy :). Take care folks!!! :)
Good idea, Ike. The nut-job is about as useful as a screen door in a submarine. There's no point in engaging with him; he's non compos mentis.

Once you are found able to understand my questioning thought, we might then be on equal measures to then abridge the voided chasms of the cosmological tree of manifested probabilities.
Ike, that is the best you will get. It is lionly's world and we just live in it.
Okay, I'll answer, no we're not. Now, your turn. Please answer my question.
Lion... Huh? What in the world are you talking about? Please answer my question.

@Jarhead.... not sure if someone asked this already or not... but you wrote earlier that you researched the bible and that you based your religion on its accuracy and the evidence that supports it. Please explain? Also, it probably got lost in the wash of comments, but you're a marine? What was your ASVAB score? And please don't lie about it.
I found this post elswhere on CNN:
"Love is all there is, it was here before man was made, it is not of physical realms that it exist, and will be there after he no longer exist
Love itself does not exist; It just is!
All your laws, rules, regulations and taboos have no bearing on what it is."
Remind you of anyone?
How are you on this fine Saturday?
Christmas parade, marching band, Christmas show, the cab is in service today. You?
Christmas shopping with the younger daughter, perhaps.
Unsure yet...gray, gloomy and cold.
Tree uprising later.
No cab service requirments today, thankfully!
66 degrees and sunny here. Perfect weather for a Christmas parade! I little cooler than usual but I like it.
That is perfect weather for a parade, especially if you're marching in it...I would love 66 and sunny!
Theses Midwest winters suck.
I grew up in Kansas and Oklahoma and I do not miss that one bit.
Our being the adopted sons and daughters of the Almighty One needs ever to vacate these premises and become reborn back into the kingdom domains of Godly reservations amid the inner chasms of cosmologic revelries of livid liveliness to always be upon the treasured abundances of life ever afterwards so bequeathed by Christ Jesus and in his words are we to be made manifest in an ever to be done riddle of life's ongoing continuations onward into forever!
"Our being the adopted sons and daughters of the Almighty One"
we're adopted? sweet! i knew that jerk wasn't my real father. i'm thinking it was probably Dionysus...
Booty, Get off the PC and go take a little vacation out in the wilderness and see the wonderful creation that the Almighty God made for your pleasure. Try not to look at all the works of man that cloud your view of a loving and merciful God.
No other than the Almighty One, the Holy Spirit who is the great seas of ever entwining nothingness can never be found faulty of his fruited essences sake. Nothingness is the emptiness that surrounds all mannerisms of the materially made. For without said nothingness all things materially made would fall into a oneness being ever crunched and made environing a solicitous felt great weight of total abandonment! This universe ensemble of the many so many cosmos of celestial omnipotence is ever lingering within the great seas of absolute nothingness, the Holy Spirit of the Almighty One and only God that ever so was and is and forever will so be!
Lion... please provide evidence for your hypothesis that God created the universe and not the flying spaghetti monster.
Good afternoon you crazy old fuck. How is the writing going?
my father is Father Oak, not Yahweh. and Yahweh did not create this world Gaia did; Gaia even created Yahweh, what part of mother of the Gods do you not understand.
The Devils answer
now Yahweh lineage
Gaia- created herself, she is eternal birth, she also created the gods/goddess
she gave birth to father sky a virgin, and she and father sky gave birth to
they created the other gods
El elyon = (Gaia + Darkness/sea)
Asherah = El elon + El elyon
El elyon + Asherah = the Canaan gods (including Baal)
Baal + Asherah = Yahweh
Yahweh + Asherah = Metatron(the holy spirit) & Sam Yaza (Me/Lucifer) & Mastema (the Satan)
with all the inbreeding in the family pops wondered why i married a human; trust me this is no family you want into!
Good afternoon A.B.
I am well to do and you? Is your insurance going to pay to fix your leak?
Yes sir Mr. Lamb. First the asbestos guy came, then on Monday the guy why dries everything out/mold checker will be here.
Lion... for some reason this thing wouldn't post my last comment? Anyway, what in the world are you talking about? Also, you answered my questions with more questions. Please sir, just answer the question and provide evidence for your statements. Everything you said could also be attributed to santa clause, the tooth fairy, the boogie man etc.
Lion... also we're not "superlative". And how does anything you wrote apply to what I asked? Please explain that too.

There's another phrase that someone found, "wo-nderful us" (have no idea what sets that one off).
There are more, some of them considered "racist", so do not assume that this list is complete.
Leo..what part of the bible is love? What did the bible add to human happiness and understanding that was not already known. Love existed and was indeed necessary for evolution of human society. The human, and other primate babies requires much assistance after birth as they are born immature. We are not born ready to run and flee as other animals can....primates survive better with two parents... do you notice that s-ex is a great way to keep two folks interested in each other, therefore that was a way to keep two folks " in the cave" and look after the baby.
LionyLamb.. who did your god adopt us from? Luckily for you, with no evidence of this god, and none forthcoming, you can claim any crazy idea and say it is the way it is.. And your afterlife.. are there clothes in your heaven? will you be naked or old, young or the age that you died? will babies grow i heaven to adults or do they stay as diapered infants? what age would they grow to before they stop?
That is very interesting. You have no evidence whatsoever as to what would make a cave man stay in a cave to tend after a child yet alone if they even did that as a two parent structure. This is the problem with non believers they make up their own world view out of thin air then claim believers have no evidence for God. At best neither one of us has acceptable scientific evidence as to the purpose for existence. I am amazed you somehow find something you made up more real than that which is self evident.
Since you brought up the cave man I will bring up Neanderthal. We do have evidence that Neanderthal believed in the afterlife. We do have evidence that modern man through all recorded history has worshiped and looked up to the heavens. You should really reexamine why you elect to stand on your own foundation rather than that which has been our foundation based on fact.
Fred..I think you may need to read a few books on evolution to understand how cooperation formed human society ...I did not make that up..it is part of our evolutionary past. Of course not every male stayed with a female and to start with that was most likely the case. But those that did were more successful and those genetic qualities passed along, and they were more successful breeders....here we are today because of it.. As to existence why does there have to be a reason? And what is self evident.. we are here yes.. that can be explained with evolution. There is no answers yet as to abiogenesis, how ever you can claim if you wish that that was the spark that "god" created..but that is still a hypothesis. As to looking to the heavens, I have no argument that humans have always looked for answers , that is our nature.. we have survived by understanding our environment. Looking for "gods" in the sky again most likely assisted our early ancestors to notice the rise and fall of the sun and moon..and slowly understand the seasons. Those folks who could predict such events survived others did not.. We are the offspring of the more enlightened and successful of our ancestors.
Evolved is right, fred. It's pretty clear that you haven't read much about the development of human society. There was a Nat Geo special not long ago that credited the transition of humans from nomadic hunter/gatherers to farming and communal living to the domestication of the dog. It's not some "made-up" story, you nincompoop.
Fred says: "that which has been our foundation based on fact." It ISN'T based on fact, at all, fred. It's based on belief. Not the same thing, and certainly not verifiable, or you and the Vegetable would have proved it by now.
poor fred, stupid as the day is long and apparently no chance he'll ever come out of it.
Thanks, I was not aware we had any hard evidence regarding early social evolution. I will do some homework on it since when Christians tell me God used evolution as a creation process it bugs me because I see no proof of that.
Fred..There is zero requirement for god in evolution,what part of it in your mind requires it? .. at best Fred, your god is confined to abiogenesis along with any other mythical ideas of creation. All are as valid as any other at this stage, but with the track record of god so far, my money is not on that particular hypothesis.
This type of "Miracle Statues" is not Christianity but rather pagan idol worship. It is one of the reasons why there was a Reformation 500 years ago.
As an Evangelical Born Again Christian I would like to thank this man for debunking this "Miracle" and potentially saving people's lives in the process.
Let him go back home and receive public accolades for a job well done.
MennoKnight, are you one of the progressive Mennonites?
Yup, and evangelical and born again, and I think for myself and I teach others to do the same (including my children)
Just asking, as the progressive ones are the ones who allow limited internet use.
One of the tenets on the Mennonite faith is the belief that children are not automatically born into the religion, and encourages free thinking and choice.
I also like their passive stance on war, although it has been to their detriment in the years past when they were being persecuted in Europe.
Mennoknight.. how can you know that your god you worship is any better than an idol or statue that the "pagans" worshiped. The fact is you cannot. The worship of "god".. the god you think is real, is just as much a figment of your imagination as the powers granted by the pagans to their statues and idols.
Amen. I never thought I would agree with an evangelical Christian.
I just ate a potato chip that looked like John the Baptist...minus his head.
