Do you understand the point of view that your support for Christianity is promoting the views of bigots who condemn homosexuality and withhold rights and privileges from them? You have failed to articulate either way on this as with so many things asked of you.
Is it really that hard to answer questions?

I specifically asked you about god in the pledge, but you ran from that question.
Maybe try answering questions and asking questions with specifics for a change, and you might find out where the argument is.
Of COURSE I think any reference to GOD should not be in the PLEDGE!

There are bigots who don't believe in GOD who are against gays .I do not believe that because I believe in GOD, its my duty to HATE! Can't you understand that? I don't hate gays, don't support job discrimination against them, If they want to get married, so what? Being a Christian does not mean that I hate anyone, just the opposite.

<quoted text>Getting to these planets is unlikely, and that is also has zero relevance to the subject.
Even if each galaxy had but a single planet on it that was condusive to humans life, that still equals hundreds of billions of planets.
Considering that the Milky way is one hundred thousand light years across, it is not unreasonable to conclude by your claim of a few thousand light years away being a planet of habitable for humans, that their could still be thousands if not millions of planets in each galaxy like this.
The math is not on your side here.
The"proof"isn't on your side here.After YEARS of exploring the solar system, no sign of extraterrestrial life.If there was intelligent life somewhere in the universe, you'd think they would have contacted us by now.

Now was that so hard to do? Why must I ask more than once for you to answer a question? You are on here all the time, yet you act as if you do not see most of the questions I ask you. Thus I assume you are running from the debate or unable to answer.
You tell me not to group people together, but if you do not stand up and answer the questions asked, this is just what people will do.
This is reality, like it or not.

To my way of thinking, being a Christian isn't about who you"hate", its about who you love.

Again, using words like "proof" is not smart here. Try using words like "evidence" instead. There is a massive difference. Not sure why you cannot comprehend this.

By your own words, the planets are far away and we cannot reach them. So evidence is not easy to have. Probabilities on the other hand are another thing.
In science,the probabilities are evidence of a sort.
Not hearing from ET does not show a high probability of no life on other planets,nor intelligent life. Keep in mind the massive numbers and distances in the equation.

I would not expect life to be even trying to communicate with us on most planets with life. Even if some of the life is intelligent, just how intelligent or advanced are they? Hell, it took life three billions years of evolution to make a device to recieve a signal of another planet or life trying to communicate.

We likely pointed our radars towards less than a million planets out of one or two hundred billion in this galaxy alone. So we have really just started looking. You are expecting more than what is expected by the experts.

No. A normal human being wouldn't throw away a kids lunch for 10 cents. I can assure you it happened here. Normal human beings would also not fall all over themselves kissing the ass of millionaires AND giving them cash money by taxing the poor kid's parent into deeper poverty. Going hungry for a day or two will not hurt you. But, I 'll bet your republikan county commissioners were not stealing your lunch money . No matter how you spin it, that is essentially what happened.

I would assume all would say the same, yet many Christian do hate and some in a systematic way towards certain peoples. Right now, one of these peoples are homosexuals. I am not saying you hate them, I am saying many Christians do, and do so due to their religion.

I was talking to one of my Christain friends yesterday and he said there was no strife between Catholics and Protestants. This really made me think about how some people do not know history or even todays reality.

It would appear that if there IS intelligent life in the universe, they are as yet unable to overcome the problems associated in the theory of relativity, in other words, traveling faster than the speed of light.To travel faster than light, would take infinite power, and the closer to the speed of light that an object traveled, the larger that object would become, until it was infinitely huge.E=MC2

I cheapened it up so you'd have more to pay your taxes with. Didn't want you to miss out on doing your part for entitlement payments that are due.

Did I say you hate because you are a Christian? NO!! I am saying some do. I clearly said I am not claiming you are, yet your dumb ass is acting as if I did. Learn to read moron.

The bigots who are Christian that are anti gay are most always this way due to their religion. Now if an atheist is, is it due to his atheism? Not likely. I cannot even imagine how he could be. I know of not a single atheist that is against gay marriage. Not a one. Do you?I am not saying it could not happen, but I am saying it is at least very rare. Now on the other hand, we know the religious right(Christian) has a lot of people who are against gay marriage. Is this just some coincidence or is this due to the bible saying homosexuality is an abomination?

I am well aware of this. Not that any of this has any relevance to the debate.
This is why I cannot understand those who believe we are being visited by ET's.

Ok halfwit, let's take a trip to insultland.Look you freak, all you do is rail constantly against religion.What a fool you are, never addressing any other issue with any degree of acuity.You get out of bed, stub your toe, and blame Christianity.What a shock, Mike hates Christians.Isn't that the truth,Mike? Don't you really hate Christians? I'd bet that you hate a lot of things Mike.Hate and contempt flow out of you like lava from a volcano.Old Mike Duquette, his favorite words are"moron","ret ard", and"chickenshit".A man who's never learned that words can cut to the bone.Well Mike, that's what your"moron"comment got you.So, we've insulted one another, and accomplished not a thing.Keep up the good work, i'm sure your friends find it oh so amusing.
