I can't claim credit for the phrase - it came from a book I read in the '70's. I didn't tell you to go do it, I merely said that I don't - and I find it far less offensive than the variations of "Go burn in Hell" that Christians are so fond of repeating. BTW, are you also taken aback by the eloquence of the term "freedom of expression?" I didn't invent that one, either.
I didn't think so at first, but as time goes on I see uncanny resemblances between curious and mantle. Could they be conjoined?
I'm reminded of the Fool's Gold Twins... you know, Delusional and Demented.
Let me say this about that.
I credit you with all the nonsensical and absurd opinions that you post under your right of Freedom of Expression.
As an aside, I have admitted that I am Curious,,,,,,,about a lot of things.
Could Curious and I be conjoined? With me up here and hiim down there.
An Atrophied Atheist Cerebellum may well reach that conclusion.

Sounds like you're a little bitter that one or more of those tail chasers sniffed around other curs' butts and not yours. Poor Lassie - I'm sorry you were spurned, but don't blame all males for your resentments and repressed hormones.
Gobekli Tepe is interesting. It rewrites what we've presumed about hunter-gathering and agriculture, as well as the widely held timetables of civilization.
Wrong-so quit your projecting @ a 12 year old level, thank you.

Anyway moving above and beyond the stuck in kiddie warp zone stuff-
I just thought it was kind of interesting how some things that may have occurred during the times of ancient civilizations, can now be explained by possibilites attributed to, of all things, more modern (natural) Science.
So you must prefer the more primitive archeological sites? Interesting data ..10-12K BC huh?

now for the the next question... The really stupid one
A vagina is part of the female anatomy. Not sure what you mean by the "made for" The vagina has several functions and purposes, it is an orifice for giving birth, an orifice for a penis among other things, such as medical devices.
Were you trying to say that if I watch porn, lie or steal, That I am evil or vile? You are beyond stupid and need to be committed. Seek help before you hurt yourself or someone else.
Where to begin.
You admitted that you lie . You confirmed that you lie by saying you don't steal.
If you watch porn you are a deviant, if you lie you are a liar and if you steal you are a thief = vile and evil

In my opinion, that's all thread this has predominantly turned into, right on par with an 8th grade school room, full of 8th grade mentalities.

Having LONG since past that "era", I myself much prefer more rational, logical and insightful discussions...sans hate, bigotry and just niggling others in general. I find such to be absolute foolishness, to harp redundantly at others, and cannot see any logic in the concept of anyone even wanting to try and speak for others, especially as to what they as individuals, are thinking. Foolishness-- of fools.

Prehistoric archeological discussions are far more interesting, and worthwhile.

"Harm" comes in many forms, not just physical.
Again you divert from the point I make. You and YaA do harm due to your superstition. And now you are just pointing out why you feel it is ok to do.
I think you're just looking for for a whipping post in YaA--and others.

Just because they are defending their faith.

I'm really starting to take offense at your petty and incorrect assumptions, directed at my persona (of which you actually know nothing of ). I find that type of behavior, very harmful.

Do you think that is okay for you to do?

"YaA is not intentionally HURTING other people with his beliefs."
It is disturbing that he is WILLING to.
Perhaps Sis missed the post where Yaa said he would kill members of his family if the voice in his head told him to.
Fortunately for them, Yaa is "pretty sure" Yahweh wouldn't tell him to.
I'm just glad I'm not related to him.
His family should have him committed for his own good and their safety.
I was thinking about this today, actually. Not YaA, but the idea that morality comes from god and therefore *anything* god does is inherently moral. It's a scary belief system. Abraham was clearly perfectly content to stab his own son with a knife because the voices in his head told him to do it.

Unfortunately you are fine with people doing one of these harmful things.
Again, I find your accusations, false allegations and judgemental tone very insulting, mean spirited and harmful, on par level with that of terrorizing another.

Why do you seemingly feel that is okay for you to do?

<quoted text>Some people are to forgiving. One should earn forgiveness depending upon the severity of the transgression. Otherwise no lessons are learned.
I find asking a god for forgiveness is pointless. In fact this act could be counterproductive as it often diverts the attention away from the transgressed.
I also believe in a karma effect. If you often transgress others, of course it is likely that you will be transgressed.
Absolutely.(no sarcasm)

And even worse, are ones who are truly ill spirited and warped, in that they would like nothing better, than to set others up to do so even!

Loathesome, those types are.

Ok well I hope you feel better getting that off your chest.
I think it is good for society to voice concerns about anything one feels is harmful to society.
I stop short of inhibiting freedoms, unlike yourself and your team, republican, right wing Christians.
Why? Because my tolerance level is higher than yours in this respect.

What does any of this have to do with the claimed words of god?
Our point is, we believe there are no words from a god.
This has nothing to do with evidence of how life came to be in earth. You have no evidence a god made life.

Apparently Mantle lacks the comprehension skills as Sista does. Can't understand what he is reading yet comments anyway with his false accusations. I stated without any question that I do not steal and I do not watch porn movies, rented or otherwise. You have stated lies about me in black and white for your God to see. You done this intentionally and will continue to do so with others on this thread. so asking for forgiveness later is null and void.
Is your God pleased with your actions? LOL
If you were put on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict?

<quoted text>Dude...I just told you I have read the OT. And I've read books *about* the OT. and I've listened to lecture series about the OT.

I could be a god-damned Bible scholar but as long as I'm atheist you will claim I don't understand the Bible. That's the problem with religion: it screws up your mind.

So is murder forgivable or not? You sent a mixed message on that one.

Also, the Doctrines and Covenants are not exactly widely accepted sources of Christian teaching. Unless you happen to be LDS. Its kinda like inventing your own language then using it in Scrabble.
I'm going to give you an old example of the difference in knowing facts about the gospel of Jesus Christ and actually understanding it. I will shorten it.

2 men died and went to be judged. The first entered a room with another man. He was questioned about the things he did on earth and then was questioned what he knew about Jesus Christ and His gospel. The man knew quite a bit. Born of a virgin, prophesies foretold His coming and death, died on a cross, had apostles and disciples, was a Jew, baptized of John, etc etc.
The second man entered the room and looked at the man waiting to question him, and fell to his knees and kissed His feet proclaiming: my Lord and my God!!

Simple example, but my point is, knowing facts about the book and culture of the people it speaks of, is not the same as understanding the gospel that it teaches and how the two testaments tie together. It doesn't mean you understand any of the mysteries of the kingdom of God.
Of course I don't think you understand the Bible or the gospel of Jesus Christ, or you would no longer be atheist.

Murder of innocent blood is a sin that can be pardoned, but not forgiven. Forgiveness means wiped clean of sin, or pure in the eyes of The Lord. Pardoned means consequences will still be served, meaning they are not cleared of the sin and forgiven.

I gave Biblical examples, but since I believe the D&C to be scripture as well, I feel free to quote it. But I will always make it clear when I do.

Again, I am just explaining why I post on topix about this subject. You refuse to accept my logical answer. It is one thing if you disagree with it, but you refuse to acknowledge my logic, so we really cannot have a conversation about the idea. Now back to discussing mundane events.
