Exactly. So when your fellow religinut claims Angel does supernatural feats despite Angel’s denials of that and despite a video of the him demonstrating one of his levitation methods, it is worthwhile pointing out. It demonstrates the delusional thinking behind living in a world of demons.

And it’s good for a few yuks too.

I have not converted to Judaism either. If I did it would be reform Judaism, it is the closest modern religion to what Jesus taught.

I give a frog’s ass that that he swiped it, failed to cite his source, lied about it, and then called those who busted him liars – it shows one more religinut’s moral bankruptcy. And that’s a good thing.
But I really don’t give a frog’s ass about your troubled childhood.
And it is not a matter of someone “mighta, sorta, couldof copied something from someone”. It is a* fact* that he plagiarize that list. One does not come up with the identical list and identical wording without plagiarism:

You believe in some sort of deity but are very defiant against the New Testament. You have nothing to be ashamed of if you are Jewish, nothing at all.

Oh yeah. I wanna piece of that Jesus pie.

I'd implement a %10 tithe for Jesus, with an extra %10 for church overhead expenses, because that's the right thing to do. Don't be cheatin' Jesus out of his ten cent!

Nice!

And the quote at his trial, when the evil lawyer asked "Sir, do you have mad adoration for this boy?"

There are many techniques for making people more suggestible without fully hypnotizing them. They are used by magicians, con artists, preachers, and politicians, for the most part.
To prep an audience to receive magic tricks, you need to make them feel very comfortable and confident, at the same time you are pushing them away from their "normal" mode of perception. A magician seduces his or her audience. Many will start with simple tricks and maybe even explain how they are done, and then later do a variation of an explained trick using a different means that seems to negate the previous explanation, and appears as genuine magic.
A magician may try to form a bond with the audience by portraying himself or herself as a skeptic, who only started learning magic to prove to himself/herself that it wasn't real. Then he/she would expound on all the revelations of real magic that they didn't want to believe, but eventually just accepted as a mystery. This gives the audience a direction for acceptance. They don't have to agree that it's magic, but they can enjoy the mystery that it could be.
I could think of a bunch more techniques. One point I would like to make that is the magician generally uses less powerful techniques than con artists, preachers, and politicians. The magician's aim is for entertainment. They aren't trying to control you after you leave their performance.
Now if we can just start discussing the manipulation techniques employed in churches I'll be in my element.
Wow, that's how I teach the magic of evolution!

Uhm...

I did design the questions. I wrote them on topix.

Design does not mean originate. or does your religion teach you differently?

kinda like a fish turning into a goat. I blame your religion for your idiocy.
