Why would anyone need permission to speak, unless in a public forum or similar situation, generally requiring such for the rationality of decent civility and non-chaotic, decent communication?
Some people are so stupid they have to be told when to speak, eat, go to the bathroom,etc
How about you study your own faults...and the MANY LOGS of ignorance that lay with in yourself.

I'll post to whatever length I chose to.

And I find YOUR MERE opinion-to be NOTHING-but yet more abhorrence.

Don't like MY opinion and perspective on things- DON'T READ it.

Some things are -just THAT simple.

Do you follow people around and judge their posts out the same spite and JUDGEMENTALness as what you are projecting in your post?

Con artists and those who hold themselves to be anything that they are NOT, are not worthy of "faith", while the well intentioned and proven worthy are.
Faith? That just means that you blindly follow. No reason or logic because those require thought and thought and faith do not work.
Hey, if you do not like what people post than do not read them, it is that simple

Let them teach any thing they want in the schools. Just dont try to force it on the kids that dont wish to participate.
The problem is that they would force it on the children. The christian cult is dying and they are desperate to brainwash innocent children.
The teachers who are jesus freaks would bully students in to studying the bible and there would be preachers in the schools going around trying to con children
Plus, with such high numbers of christians raping children they should not be allowed in schools period

HAHAHA
I asked him a question"Like trying to kill a fish by drowning it in an empty water bucket."
"I am sure that makes sense to you.."
And it should have,I provided him with all the necessary information needed to drown a fish.
Any one with half a brain would understand that,if you keep a fish out of water long enough,it would suffocate.It is not rocket Science. You ever hear of "flopping around like a fish out the water.
Now,you can drown a human by submerging him in water for a certain period of time.If you keep him submerged long enough,he will drown,,,,Common sense
Obviously,Skeptikal Spektakal did not catch on to what was very obvious.
In order to prove me wrong,he filled the bucket and held the fish underwater for well over an hour..The fish did not drown and in a fit of anger he got a double barreled shotgun and shot in then head...LOL
Again, your logic and knowledge are far more limited than your anger. Depending on the size and type of fish, it is likely that it will drown in a bucket of water. Certain fishes such as goldfish and labyrinth fishes can take oxygen from air, but most other fish will suffocate in a bucket of water unless it is aerated.
Your story about another poster is obviously fabricated. It seems that being clueless about live wells and the 9th commandment can be added to the list.

And just so you HAVE to look at your OWN flawed irrationality and ILLogic-
LOGIC: A person would have logical FAITH in something that is proven to be WORTHY of it...such as surgical abilities.
ILLOGICAL: To blindly follow some lame lemming herd pack of HATRED, that knows NOTHING of what they speak of...with NO ability other than to insylt others WITH ability.
LOL.
Yeah, that's how it works.
If you don't like the definition of the words being used, make up new ones.
But I do find it quite hilarious that you probably don't think your "illogical" definition applies to you.

Well then maybe I'm an oddball. I don't take the effort to judge because I don't care enough about that. It doesn't matter. I have my own issues and faults to deal with without trying to rank myself against anyone.
You make judgments all the time. You automatically take risk assessments of situations and people. While that may not equal your personal definition of being "judgmental", it is a reaction you cannot avoid. Accepting or denying that fact doesn't change the fact, so no - that practice doesn't make you an oddball. What makes one an oddball is realizing it and attempting to overcome the shortcoming.

I already have. And I already commented on it. They were slow to realize that they should ask God what they should do. Once the prophet did, he received the revelation that allowed blacks to hold the priesthood. And the proclamation did not say, NOW blacks may hold the priesthood. It reads to me like it should have always been that way. My opinion is that Brigham messed up, but no one questioned him.
But Brigham Young WAS a prophet. He got his marching orders from God, if your faith is to be believed. Why is it that his revelations were flawed but others were ok? If anything, that should tell you that God is not involved.

I strongly disagree, in that I think MANY great scientists have often been people of "faith" in something greater than just themselves, because when rationalized honestly, it is only logical.
Why would they even have ever bothered with science, if they were not?
(and yes, it is a direct quote from a letter to a friend.
I have trouble being able to apply any logic to that "gawd did it" simpleton line of ignorance, mostly because I just don't believe ANYthing in this world is just THAT damn simple, and really, it just makes no rational sense.
I think Einstiend quote is a great quote, and represents amazing things.
On a personal note, I learned of it from someone who would've probably been considered as one very weak in faith, maybe even somewhat cynical about it as well, but a well studied studied man of science actually. He wrote of it one evening when considering his loved ones, while sick, and in need of surgery.
Anyway, tt is a quote I will ALWAYS remember, fondly, and respectfully, for very good reason here.
Perhaps YOU have a favorite quote of your own?
Well, I'm not saying you can't be religious and scientific. I'm saying you can't do science with religion. When I say they are antithetical it is because one of them seeks answers and follows evidence while the other has answers and rejects evidence. That is just the way it is.

You cannot do science by religion. It does not work.

But sure, you can be religious and still do science.

I don't think scientists are heading back to religion at much of a pace. In fact, statistically, the more educated you are in science the more likely you are to be non-religious. Most of the 85% of Christians in this country are much farther down the educational ladder.

And that should tell you something important.

I have a lot of favorite quotes. There was one I read in a Carl Sagan book but I can't remember who said it. It was something like "I shall not again look up on a monkey without mortifying reflections". It had to do with a man who looked at an ape or monkey and, thinking of evolution, had a moment of truly understanding what it meant. That's a good one.

Also, "This is my boom stick." - Ash

I thought you said that being gay was a reason for shunning? Is it one of those things where they can be gay but they can never act upon it? Like they have to stay single and never have any gay sex or gay thoughts?
The JWs have a strict no gay policy.
No, its one of those things where Mormons are pretty smart. They recognize that surival means blending in. They are quite normal people, actually. Quite typical, good, modern folks. Never met a bad one, really.

But it is a sign that the foundation of their church is very weak. They have to make all these embarrassing adjustments over time to weed out the bad stuff like bigotry. I suspect that in fifty years you won't hear them speak much about Joseph Smith or magic stones or any of that nonsense as they try to merge with mainstream Christianity.

Uh, you know the rest of the world does, including Topix which is why you added the space in the middle. Younger people end up on here too.
I hope you are smarter than this and can choose more intelligent language.

HAHAHA,Your simple mind has yet to realize that I am playing games with it,as I was with Spektakals simple mind also.
Obviously,your mind has not yet evolved to the stage where it can fully comprehend when someone is playing games with it,Must be fossilized.
by the way,What did Spektakals do when the police showed up and arrested him for firing a shotgun within the city limits.
That is a violation of the 2nd Amendment,

At church I really don't. Elsewhere in my life I do. Choice of friends, coworkers, neighbors, etc yes. But honestly it doesn't cross my mind at church.

Correct. Homosexuality is a sin when acted upon. If they do not engage in the act, it is not a sin.

It WOULD be rather an antithesis for an "atheist" to do so, wouldn't it.
May a tree bless you, "tree-dammit" (the second one being a rather CRUDE supplement for a rather CRUDE usage!)
There are a couple interpretations of the third commandment.
Some rabbinical scholars hold that it refers to using God's name to specifically and ritually curse others.
Personally, I'm in the camp that it refers to not being a hypocrite - not taking an oath to God, claiming the Jewish or Christian faith and then acting counter to the constraints and ideals of those religions.
(hint, hint)
In that light, atheists do better at upholding the commandment than 99.999% of the devout.
