Quote# 44530

If God is not real then how?
Anne van der Bijl (Brother Andrew) has been smuggling bibles into closed country since the mid 50's, he has done it often with bibles in plain view yet never been caught.

You can read about his testemony in the book God's Smuggler or you can get the basic info from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brother_And...

He is still active today and is working in Muslim countrys and still has his head.

If God was not real then he would have never been able to do what he has done.

Well if they were in plain view it's not really smuggling is it now?

Hey kids if god wasn't real I wouldn't be able to sneak out of my house at night.

Hmm, he's been doing it for 50 years and the world is still all screwed up. Maybe he should start smuggling science books.

...or you could just thank the people who were kind hearted enough to look the other way. But, no...it has to be proof of a Jesus Shield to you...

All this tells me is that Brother Andrew is determined to continue brainwashing as many people as he can.

When I was a kid several of my friends had paper routes delivering an early version of The Penny Saver. They asked for subscriptions, but you got the paper in your yard whether you wanted it or not. Most of these kids just "delivered" the crap in the riverbed and got paid anyway.

Is it just my criminal mind that suggests to me Bro Andy may not actually have done all the wondrous works he accuses himself of? Take the money and run, Ange.

Maybe these places have a real need for toilet paper...and that's why they let him in.

So he must be , what, about 85 years old. Just the right age to be considered "that goofy old loon that keeps pretending he's some covert operative. Just ignore him, he's harmless."

Maybe they don't care.

If Allah is not real then how?

How have all the surviving Muslims in Baghdad managed not to be blown off the earth, how?

Lets see: circumstance, luck, the fact that most people don't murder...

Well, there's a life down the crapper.

"If God was not real then he would have never been able to do what he has done."

And what has he done exactly?

Didn't you know? The underground railway extends to other countries across the atlantic now.

Have you ever thought that muslims....don't give a fuck?

To leave islam means DEATH, it's not as if they are afraid people will convert.

The Watcher

There are lots of Christians in Muslim countries who have been killed for professing their faith. Where was God then?

Maybe he put a Perception Filter on the bibles. Like the one on the TARDIS.

8/9/2008 4:19:04 AM



Following your logic, God is not real, because he has allowed religious other than Christianism survive the Inquisition.

8/9/2008 5:17:14 AM

Darn

Maybe it's because in reality the Soviet Union didn't give a shit about a western christian trying to convert orthodox christians.

They didn't bother to pull down all those churches either, although they had sixty years to do it in, and those thing are not easily overlooked.

Or, and this is more likely, he was simply allowed by the authorities to do it.

...He is still active today and is working in Muslim countrys and still has his head...

- He won't if the Saudis catch him!

...If God was not real then he would have never been able to do what he has done.

- This is a bit of a non sequitur. Explain, please. On second thought, don't bother.

If God was not real then he would have never been able to do what he has done.

Jehovah supports violating national border policies? Any competent drug runner could do what "Brother Andrew" has been doing. The difference is that people look forward to what the drug runners are bringing. I know if you gave me a choice between a juicy doobie and the Holy and Inspired Word of God I'd reach for the doobie every time.

In fact, as soon as I finish ripping this morning's quota of fundies a new one, I'm going to load a bowl and either pilot a starship (Orion Pirates) or start my career as an assassin (Hitman).

aaa

I know some smugglers and they have done more dangerous stuff than that.

8/9/2008 12:06:39 PM

Just because he hasn't been caught...
