Thanks for showing a major reason why I protest religion.
Thanks for showing why religion can be harmful.

Now what are homosexuals doing that is harming others?
Not sure if you could have picked a worse example to use for an analogy. And yet you expect us to think you have it the correct answers to god and religion?
No.. you Dumb azz!

Why do you have to blame liberals? Do you think that liberals are not Christians? The conservatives are the ones that has sent this country to the crapper. Remember we were in the black when little bush took over.

You've been saying the same thing for 3 years, so after the first couple months it's all yada yada.
Your evidence for God does not mean nothing to me - it should serve as a lesson not to do "more drugs than you weigh."
There is no scientific agenda to prove God unreal. The evidence just pans out that way. Tough for the delusional - as if it could make any difference for them, of course.
Good parents don't want false information and conjecture fed to their children
---> that's why there is no Bible study in public schools.

There is good and bad in the world. It has nothing to do with the Earth being waa-aay older than 10,000 years and intelligent design being absolute poppycock.

Dukett , your ignorance is longer than a 10 day week and more than equal to your stupidity.
YOUR hypothesis that Superior beings or something else is responsible for creating life ,is YOUR hypothesis,not mine.
You are claiming that these superior beings are not Supernatural , that they are not God.
That being the case , you need to explain how they were created by natural means.
Were they created from nonintelligent,nonconscious and nonliving matter?
That is the issue that YOU need to explain,not I.
You also need to explain what you mean by the possibility that life was created by" Something Else"
What is that something else?
My God is the uncausable cause . Let me go over that with you for the umpteenth time.
If there ever was Absolutely Nothing, there would still be Absolutely Nothing today. Since there is something that means that Absolutely Nothing never existed. If it ever did, you wouldn't be here reading this right now. Absolutely Nothing would still be here.
So there was never a time when Absolutely Nothing existed. Therefore, there has always been something. But what?
Was it nonintelligent,nonliving nonconscious matter . If so , how was it able to attain the opposite of those nonproperties of it's own accord?
That topic and the impossibility of how that could be possible has been covered and you have not been able to refute it's validity.
Instead, you insert a being of superior intelligence or Something else as being the creator of life by natural means..
Is this superior being mortal or immortal ,did he always exist or was he created and by what or whom
If he is mortal , you have a lot of explaining to do ,if he is immortal , then he must be what is considered a God.
I need not explain who created my God since He is that which always was,,,Intelligent, conscious and living beyond anything that neither Science or human knowledge can explain.
Your Atheist unbelief has painted you into a corner that you can only attempt to get out off by lying and distorting what I posted.
If your "SUPERIOR BEING" or that "SOMETHING ELSE" THAT YOU REFER TO AS POSSIIBLY BEING THE CREATOR is mortal, then you need to explain how they came into existence and attained life,consciousness and intelligence.
So you see,you are back to what you could not explain in the first place,you are resorting to smokescreens and nonsense,
If your superior being or that Something else is supernatural, then you need go no further , as that is what I refer to as GOD.
It is worth repeating;
The atheists problem lies in the fact that it's opinions are forever enveloped in a miasma of apathy and intellectual hebetude,
HAHAHA canto e zangano
I see you strayed yet again from the debate. No one claimed a natural or unnatural creator in this debate. The debate was about whether an atheist scientist could entertain the idea of an Intelligent designer.
Now who is it you are talking about?

You see, entertaining an idea requires no full explanation's.
Actually, just believing in an idea requires no full explanations.
Your idea is not a full explanation. You might think it is, but it falls far short.

It would be nice to have all the answers, but no one has them. And you continually acting as if you do, just makes you look all the more stupid.

And your explanation that god is supernatural solves nothing. It only creates more questions. Questions that you cannot answer. Like, how can the supernatural be? You can claim god always existed, but you have zero evidence of the claim. You cannot even show evidence for any god, much less a specific claim of a god.
Your claim is no more valid than any superstitious claim.
I could claim the flying spaghetti monster created you, but it has as much evidence as your claim...zero.

You have simply created a rule so you can have a double standard. You made a rule of the supernatural verses the natural. You seem to think the supernatural needs no explanation, and the natural does.

Let's get this straight. You agree with genocide, killing gays and killing people of other religions.

See what a mess your morals are in?

Genocide is bad. Period.

Killing people because they are homosexuals is bad. Period.

Yet here you are saying that these atrocities are actually good. You've got no right to lecture anyone on morality and ethics if that's what you think.

curious wrote, "
With the coming of Christ , he gave new commandments which will apply to anyone who chooses to follow him.
Nowhere does He state that those who choose not to believe in him or are homosexual should be killed."

So, why do you people keep going on about the Ten Commandments and how we should live our lives in accordance with their rules?

By your own words, those rules only applied to the Jews and were junked when Jesus arrived on the scene.

In fact, why bother quoting the OT at all? Why not tear out those hate-filled pages from your bibles and just leave the NT

curious wrote, "
You always fail to differentiate between those 2 totally different situations ,either intentionally , in order to paint an erroneous and misleading picture or because you are ignorant of the facts or both.Whichever it is , there is no excuse for it."

It's simple.

What Jesus said or didn't say is irrelevant.

I said that your faith means that you defend slavery, genocide, killing gays and killing people of other religions.

That's exactly what you're doing when you refuse to condemn the genocide and killings of the OT.

curious wrote, "
I suspect that you and Dukett are troubled by the fact that,had you been part of that Jewish congregation and as obtuse as you both are , Moses would have had no choice but to do away with you,rather than have you pollute the entire congregation.
That is your problem ,not mine.......
"

That last bit is just flannel. You've been caught and your filthy morality is exposed for all to see.

Rather than admit to genocide, etc, being wrong, you resort to petulance and spitefulness.

How very Christian.
The genocide and killing of the OT?...
Atheist who don't believe in God sure like to blame him for everything....
Man made God the enemy not the other way around.. Get your facts in order... The homosexuals should thank their lucky stars for Jesus (as should we all)... You look at the OT with modern American eyes but a little study and research you would find life was much different in ancient times... Yeah God is very strict and he doesn't care what you think is fair... We all fail Christians are no better than anyone else... If not for Jesus man would not have made it...

Sorry, but I do not go by your standards of hate. I mean, you feel it was ok to kill people due to their religious beliefs.
Your standards are pathetic.

BTW, their are many liberal Christians. Many would argue, Jesus was a liberal.

Man made it for tens of thousands of years without Jesus, and many do still today.

And god is not the enemy, but the followers of gods often are, when their agenda includes immoral acts in the name of said god.

Yes, you do need to explain....if you wish to have consistent standards.
And I agree, no one can explain, as you just admitted. Yet you keep insisting we explain....

And your claims show intelligence needed no intelligent creator. Your claim here shows, consciousness needed no creator.

Don't you mean the apes made it tens of thousands of years? Lol... And yes many do immoral acts in the name of God but not to worry everything done in the dark will be dragged into the light for all to see... Any true follower of God is no one's enemy... And finally yes man has made a host of Gods but the God who made man knows who they are...

Just goes to prove that when someone is incoherent,attempts to mislead and you have known them for just 8 weeks , it can seem like an eternity.
As you well know ,slavery in OT times was very different than the slavery practiced in the U.S.
The commandments given to the Jews by God were for the jews only and that,in order to keep the congregation frm being polluted by the corruption surrounding them by other cultures.
So, that being the case , I totally agree with those commndments that were given at the time.
With the coming of Christ , he gave new commandments which will apply to anyone who chooses to follow him.
Nowhere does He state that those who choose not to believe in him or are homosexual should be killed.
You always fail to differentiate between those 2 totally different situations ,either intentionally , in order to paint an erroneous and misleading picture or because you are ignorant of the facts or both.

Millions of Jews would disagree.
And no matter your excuse, killing due to ones religious belief is, and always was immoral.
If the group could not withstand the ordeal of having religious freedom, then it was not worthy, period, much less "chosen".
