Study the bible or remain ignorant; the choice is yours.
Yeah no doubt. Remember that book in the Bible about how George Washington only reluctantly became President or that other book about the end of NASA's Space Shuttle program?

Oh wait...that Bible has nothing to do with our culture does it? My bad.

Tell me this if a lot of u all don't believe in God nor the Bible them what is the point of u wanting gay marriages mean what's the point if there is no significant reason to do it other than tax/health type issues.God is the reason man n woman make marriage for procreation.you can't disprove God doesn't exist not can u prove evolution is fact..the reason our society is the way it is nowadays is directly due to God being replaced as the core of society n family n being replaced w stuff or feelings.we can agree to disagree n love the sinner hate the sin but to act as if u all know that there isn't a God n that evolution Is the fact then u all r the problem.if the world were all Christian n I mean true believers not superficial them this world would b such a better place
Wow, that's like a tour de force of fallacies and ignorance.

1) I've been married over 20 years. I'm an atheist. My marriage has exactly NOTHING to do with any religious ideas. Marriage is about being a full member of your own society. That's all gays want. Full membership just like you and me.

2) You can't prove or disprove anything when it comes down to hardcore philosophical brass tacks. Nothing. You can't even prove that other people are real. But we don't live our lives in solipsism, do we? We accept things based on evidence, prior examples, trust, etc. Evolution is a fact as much as anything can be considered a fact. The Modern Synthesis, the Theory of Evolution that we all know and love, is the theory that explain the fact of evolution. Read Ernst Mayrs' "What Evolution Is" then get back to me.

3) "Love the sinner hate the sin" is dumb. Mainly because the idea of "sin" is dumb. But also because it ignores the reality (homosexuality is natural) and pretends to be compassionate while condoning hate speech, violence, and ignorance. When the words "love the sinner hate the sin" leave your lips you have just proven you are an idiot.

Nope, not in the least... I make my view based on my own knowledge base across the board and don't follow dogma of anyone... Some of my positions some will agree with and some will not.... That makes me think my positions are probably the correct positions when both side agree with some and disagree with others.... Delusion is not only the realm of the religious right, it's also a harbor for the sanctimonious left...

If what you do is causing harm to other humans, it is good cause not to condone it legally.
I realize I keep repeating this, but you clearly do not get the message unless it is pounded into your head.
I kinda think ripping the heads off Humans in the womb might be considered Harm....

Or...maybe your positions are always wrong and when either side happens to be wrong as well they agree with you?

It's possible. Delusion comes from all sides, after all. And you do claim to have solved the hard problems of physics...hmm....

Then you should take a course on reading Comprehension as I have never made such a claim.... All I have ever stated is that I have a Postulate that can explain some of the so far unexplained aspects of physics while maintaining R,SR an QM as valid and explains how QM works both in the micro and macro without conflict... At no point have I stated i have solved anything....

I could be wrong on lots of stuff but so far History has validated my every position so I'll keep pushing on....

1)marriage means being a full Member of our society huh?!?!sounds a little Marxist to me. I guess not being married means I'm not a full member then right ?my point is I believe there is a fundamental reason man n woman come together to b in marriage is to cont society in the optimum way to advance society.. U can differ in opinion but that's mine n millions of others who think that way... Weird how everyone who don't believe in God act as if there superior in intellect n understanding then the db God loving person..
2) I believe there is a Creator u don't . U can't prove to me the evolution happened now can u? If we started as bacteria n went to apes then became Humans then where are all the phases of these transformations at. How come we don't see differ phases if ape to man running around??? Sounds as if that idea takes more faith than God loving folks need....tel me before the Torah (old testament ) to define sin what was sin then.. The Torah has defined sin for everyone... Also defined marriage too. N defined homosexuality is wrong as wel along w many other sins..btw I think it's a stated right just as I think every law should

Is the word "and" really to much for you to type? Your writing is bad enough without the laziness. Instead of putting three question marks in a row, put them after each question.

Their have been twenty two different hominid fossil species found that are clearly transitions between common ape and modern human.
Now fossils are rare, yet we have 22 so called, missing links. Yet you act as if their are none.

Evolution often takes a long time, or comes in spurts when the environment changes severely. Man has not been around long enough to expect to see any dramatic or noticeable changes in most species. We have seen some changes in some species though.

The changes in ape to man occurred over millions of years. We have less than ten thousand years of written history, so just do the math.

Yet nearly all of your positions are of the Republican Party. Now if you had broke from the party on personal freedoms like gay marriage and abortion, then I would think maybe you were a libertarian. But you are almost perfectly in line with the Republican Party. If it walks like a duck.....

So lets say we can blame instinct when cats kill and don't eat. That still doesn't mean we should use humans as targets when honing our sniping skills. So my point still stands that just because animals do it, doesn't mean we should.
There are some Really (really!) twisted and warped (as in sick in the head!) people in this world!

Heck with more churches these days (because those type refuse to acknowledge any benefit of spiritual guidance that such may provide, will just keep bashing any good such may do)... and with so many of those kinds of sick in the head, dysfunctional, depraved types running around now, we need licensed head shrink booths on every street corner, with protective services for the victims that the sickin the head suck into their sickness on every street corner!!
Gaw, such rampant twisted and warped depravity!

It doesn't matter WHAT you think so long as it is within the realms of regulations pertaining to, and isn't of your geneTics!

And the next time you think it DOES matter-go try peeing out a watermelon--blame it all on someone else because YOU ate it and it didn't digest right..and then try and sue the givverment to grow it because for YOUR own STUPIDITY, you can't.

Or reform welfare and place it right where it needs to be place thus making STUPID females ACCOUNTABLE for their OWN stupid actions again!!

Yes, blaming Bush for the storm would be stupid. Blaming him for poor response leadership makes sense. But to be fair, their was poor leadership by the local left also.
