In this case the blanks are gaps in our scientific knowledge.

Although I will concede that they don't fill the blanks with what they think; preferring to use someone else's ancient myth, magic or ju-ju.

All the more reason to teach the Bible in public school.
Ignorance is a terrible thing
Of course In the interests of fairness and equipping our kids with as much information to help them make a choice, it's only right that other holy books are given equal space with the Bible.

I have NO idea of what your insanely spewing about there, that's YOUR twisted and warped perspective, not mine.
Sorry, you spew the twisted and warped perspective, YOU own it, just don't try and beat the rest of us over our INDIVIDUAL, independent thinking heads with it, because abuse like that, is NOT welcomed.
Why are you labeling and attacking my perspective? Did you forget you just condemned me for doing that? Some would label such, hypocrisy.
I am well aware you do not welcome my perspective, because if you did, you would not be as hypocritical. Being hypocritical is clearly your rule of thumb.

Repent, and get to know Him... You'll be glad you did!
Stop flip-flopping on this - you're all over the place.

You say that your god doesn't want us to go to Hell so I point out that your god isn't getting what he wants.

Now you say he does get what he wants.

Make your mind up.

Does your god want us to go to Hell - yes or no?

So, good thing for ones like YOU, there isn't a ban on shows that even references such.
Damn straight that kind of WARPED mentality is SICK in the head.
Again, lying is getting you nowhere. Just put the genocide in a proper place. If you glorify it as the bible does, and you teach it as such, I have a problem with that.
By the way, I am not asking for a ban, I am debating why I see it as bad. It is my perspective. You wish to stifle my perspective.
Now if ever find a post that I ask for a ban, then condemn it if you will.Otherwise, try debating what I actually say instead of the voices in your head.

By your inane rantings it is obvious that you are still ingesting the mind altering drugs provided you by Q.....

Nice refutation.

I should have known better than to respond to your post.

Condemn away, Hitler was a sociopath too.
ANY thing like that, that perceives itself to have been created to be "more than" any of the rest of humanity, is sick.
Makes me glad again, to live in America, where topics such as the Holocaust, were NOT ignored as if they never existed, but rather instead, TAUGHT about, even at GRADE school levels-Duquette.
Far more interesting than mindless ignorance.
So I can condemn Hitler, but not god? They both are doing the same thing. And I am pointing out you are being of a double standard. You certainly failed to clear up that claim.

Do you know who the first scientist to try and apply science to the Bible was? I will give you a hint, He was a believer in the book..

"Anything like that"? Well it is my perspective, the god of the bible, Koran, and Torah is "like that". And I condemn it. And for some hypocritical reason, when I do, you wish to stuff that topic in a bottle to be ignored as if it never existed.
Must I keep spelling out your hypocrisy? How can you be so damned stupid as to keep saying blatantly hypocritical things?

Take note, because obviously you have failed so far. I do not ask the topic of the bible be banned from school. I am simply asking it to be in the proper class, as in a comparative study. So one may see he genocides as an atrocity, instead of it just being glorified. Any study of Hitler should get the same treatment.
You see, my standards are consistent.

Well the Christian poster think god is so much "more than humanity" that he is allowed to be genocidal.
I am not going to stuff that sick shit away.

curious, I know what Sista was stating and I really have no interest in your sophomoric "I know you are but what am I" drivel.

Justice ,No matter what name you post under,your mental incompetence is quite obvious.
YOU ARE LYING and you know it . I did not cherry pick any examples. The immoral condoning of Beastality , incest and other ills by the Leaders of atheism , who have dubbed themselves the 4 horsemen of Atheism , Hitchens , Dawkins , Dennett and Harris ,is not something to be taken lightly . To that list we must also add Peter Singer.
And why do they condone those types of behaviour? Because as ATHEISTS THEY HAVE NO MORAL COMPASS. They have stated that if one considers these acts as bringing one pleasure , then they can be considered as ethical.I do not place much stock in your rantings,
you are the one that judged your parents to be irrational and dishonored your dead uncle's last wishes.
Tell us what it is that you base your morals on?
The truth can be a bitter pill to swallow , but , swallow it you must.
Those are your leaders who are expressing those views and who have been defemded on many occasions on this website by those of your faith...
What dead uncle? Mine are all living.. My profile is logged in every time I post...I can't take credit for someone else that pissed you off. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that disagrees with your rantings ......
