You are describing a bisexual. Not a straight person (despite what both of you apparently think). Besides, sexual attraction is not black and white. It's a spectrum. Anyone that is all the way on the "straight" side cannot have a sexual relationship with another of the same sex. It causes overwhelming revulsion.

Are you intentionally writing poorly or just stupid?

Want to know the best way to look like a desperate moron that has been beaten? Ignore two full posts of points, change quotes, and maintain the same stupid and already refuted position. Oh, and try to be as insulting as possible. Keep it up! You're doing great!
I know that you're a waste of my time, by the way. You're really just a form of entertainment for myself and others with properly functioning brains. I shake my head at the pure insanity of your posting content and style. But I still laugh. So I continue interacting in hope of future laughs.
<quoted text>
No, I'm quite sure they were correct. Faith is emotion based. You believe something because you WANT to, not because it's actually true. Wants are emotion based. Unless you can come up with one that I'm not aware of, I'm pretty sure that there is no non-emotion based reason to have faith in anything.
Frozen water au naturale CAN be classified as a mineral because......

Scientfic FACT says so, and I have FAITH (NOT based on any "emotion" however) in that FACT.

That simple enough for you to comprende?

Nice try however, stumpy.

At about 9, I heard of God, and Jesus...
I believed in my heart it was true, but was lead away!
Forty years later, I got to know God, and Christ all over again...
He said He never left me, and it was I that left Him!
All I did against Him, He still Loved me!

It would've been kind of Illchronilogically illogical to put the book of Revelations in the middle of the books of the New Testament? I would agree lol.

Could've been a metaphorologist, for all we REALLY know, for certain!!
This is your 'defense' of the Book of Revelation?
"for all we REALLY know," does not entertain any relationship with metaphors. For all we REALLY know, it was written by a false prophet, a madman or even by Satan himself, as none of its prophecies (excuse me - METAPHORS) have conclusively come to pass.

Are you one who can't wait for the next doomsday tent revival to make the circuit through your town? Are you one to pour over Edgar Cayce's 'readings,' or to watch documentaries about Nostradamus over and over? Are you one of those who suspected that civilization was going to tip over the edge in Y2K or that a global cataclysm was looming around the winter solstice of 2012?

There are plenty of other places to stick a penis that can be fun for both parties and are completely harmless. Those are all "abominations"?
No, they aren't. Abusing a child, sexually or otherwise, is an "abomination". Destroying a child's ability to think by forcing dogma on them is an "abomination". Condemning an entire group of people that aren't hurting anyone simply for being the way they were born to be is an "abomination".
Just in my life, there are many things that cannot be explained by chance! Miracles do happen today!
Just two... 2 .22 cal rounds went through my head without leaving a mark... 3 syringes full of meth stopped my heart... I live!
Many more!
God is real, Prayers are answered, Miracles happen!

"completely harmless"
Not so! worshiping sex, leads to human trafficking, pornography leads to marital distress, and divorce!
.
"Condemning an entire group of people that aren't hurting anyone simply for being the way they were born to be is an "abomination"."
Not condemning anyone... That's God's job!
The fact is... 44 years ago, they (homosexuals) just wanted to be thought of as normal... they are not, but what they do behind their doors... that's between them and God!
Now, they WANT to FORCE us to accept them, and ruin GOOD people for just refusing to serve them IF it goes against our faith!
That tolerance is only a one way street!
If I put a sign in my business, that says "I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason" that right should not be overturned by anyone!
They search for people they can harass... NOT respecting our Faith!
Go to a Muslim community.... see if they don't get their heads removed!

Nice metaphor. If you're an idiot.

We aren't talking books. Nobody was. You made repeated assertions (like that you "wouldn't rule any geneological lineage out, Pangea WAS one big land mass.") that plate tectonics would have had some impact on the locations/origin of early humans. You got smacked down because you're an idiot with a stupid idea that was hundreds of millions of years off.

To clarify, the continents were, for all intents and purposes, in their current configuration millions of years before anything remotely human evolved. Nakalipithecus is around 10 million years old. I mean... Pangea?? Really?

Go look at a map, idiot. By the end of the Cretaceous, the current continents were seperated and Africa was an island. Your Pangea theory is simply another rambling that appears to be logical unless you actually know something, just like pretty much everything else you say. You should write for answersingenesis.com , because you clearly have a knack for writing things that people of faith and ignorance would buy. At least if you fixed that whole "I can't write proper English" thing.

Might want to make up your mind on that...?
You either believe faith and logic can and often do harmoniously exist (as I personally believe they do-and have stated MANY, many times) OR, you do NOT believe that people can and often do, have faith AND logic, with out issue, as YOU have stated many times.
Which is it? Or do you just enjoy being representative of contrariness?
This isn't something I have to "make up my mind" about. And this is not a difficult concept. Just because somebody can be logical in one scenario and faithful in another does NOT mean that they "harmoniously exist", you dolt. They are mutually exclusive and CANNOT "harmoniously exist". You're trying to act as though a person's thoughts on two different matters, and the nature of those thoughts, must be harmonious simply because they have them both. That's stupid and wrong. People are contradictory all the time, moron. I mean, have you never read anything you've written here? Full of contradiction.

I can buy a bottle of vinegar. I can buy a box of baking soda. I can hold them both at the same time and it means NOTHING. They cannot "harmoniously exist". They destroy one another if placed together in the same location. Stop being an idiot.

WTF does that retardation have to do with anything? Of course ice is a mineral. And "fact" doesn't say so, the criteria of the term "mineral" says so. It's merely a label.

Let me tell you something mister-that Y2K stuff--took muh feet about fwee years to recooperate from! Flippin stuff-and tipped muh memory banks to the outer edge of Columbus's flatplate earth!

Do you remember when Saddam burned the oil wells, and "metaphorically" blackened the land of Kuwait? You probably thought someone was "literally" using cwayons, to cowor in between the lines though huh.

You however, were NOT the author of the book, so your opinion on chapter placement is actually irrelevant (imagine that).

Maybe the Maccabees part? Mostly because I have FAITH, based upon post-preliminary readings, that there is in FACT, at least some comparable informative pieces to contrast information with.

No, you're wrong. Educate yourself before blabbering on in public. Studies have been done on this topic. You should try reading them. I know it's a stretch because it's not the Bible or whatever, but you should give it a shot anyway.

Turns out that some animals, if given the choice between a willing partner of the opposite sex and one of the same sex, will choose a homosexual partner almost exclusively. There are gay animals. It's a reality. Stop denying it.
