How intolerant can one be? I do not like religion, but I defend ones right to religion. Now do not confuse my opposition to be intolerance, as you have never seen me say anything like the religious should be on their own island.
I am sure you will make some vague accusation now, with zero evidence for support like you always do.
Your posts really have become useless. I know you just like to piss me off, as you stated the other day, you get off on it. I should probably just ignore your posts.

Again, you are ignorant to the fact you contradicted yourself, therefore this debate by is akin to you trying to make filet mignon out of livermush. What you see and the definition of the word are two different meanings. Are you now rewriting the dictionary to prove your points? I'm going to have to let you babble on with someone else because you can't keep your train of thought straight. You have zero substance or understanding.
First, you did not even show a link to your supposed definition. Usually when I fact check your posted definitions, I find you leave out the parts that make me look correct. It is call 'cherry picking'. Seems to be a trend here.

But I have never even heard of a hard definition of phrases as general as this.
I see you still have not shown what I am ignorant about in religion, so you have yet to give evidence of your charge. In a court of law, the case you present would be thrown out due to lack of evidence.
Really, if you are going to charge someone, show evidence.
You really have some nerve claiming victory when you refuse to provide evidence of your claim. But I suppose this is typical of those who have blind faith. You do not understand the need for evidence.

I see at least three others gave you agreement icons, so three others here are intolerant of ones non belief. How anti American and anti freedom. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. But I know the bible demands you kill me, so I understand where your intolerance comes from. That immoral bible.

<quoted text>I gave evidence in the form of scriptures and the hierarchy of churches not allowing women, to prove my point on inequality in Christianity. Now you tried to refute my evidence by pointing out a 'few' churches have 'some' women in 'some' higher positions. Guess you think 'equal' means a tiny bit?
As human culture progressed, most RELIGIONS progressed. As with life in general, humans advance in some way, shape, fashion or form. PROGRESSION is a subject you never address on here. Freedom to worship is a double edge sword. You can worship whom you please, just as a religion can make it own rules. BTW why do you seem to always target Christianity? Ever seen a female "Dalai Lama"? Equal to me means I can choose any religion I want, therefore I will accept the perspective of the religion.

<quoted text>If you think the words "I would think they are not complete fabrications", means I believe they are true, then we have big problems to sort out.
I was saying, I cannot know have any truth or not, and no one can, so if you believe this, you have blind faith. Not sure why you wish to make this complicated, as I am sure you know what I am talking about. Stop playing stupid, it is getting so tedious. I tried to show some nuance and you just took it completely wrong. I guess I have to keep everything black and white for you, as you cannot comprehend the grey.
Maybe you just like to play gotcha, I do not know, but it is silly, immature, and not intellectual.
Most stories have grain of truth. That does not mean they are true stories. Comprehend?
You stop playing stupid. If you don't think they're complete fabrications, then you believe there is some truth?? You use the old grain of truth defense, so you can argue an opinion you disagree with. You don't care if women were mistreated according to the Bible, you only use that "grain of truth" to argue inequality. I don't see you arguing that you should love your neighbor as yourself as the Bible states. Do you think there's a grain of truth in this scripture? My favorite of yours' is the Bible says "you should turn the other cheek", does this just happen to have another "grain of truth" you've managed to find to fit a debate you're having? You ever heard "a half truth is a lie?" I happen to agree with with this, so why don't you just state the Bible is a lie in your opinion and move on. You can't believe there's some truth to the Bible only when it fits your agenda and then call the rest of what you don't agree with lies. Yes, you do need to keep everything black and white with me, because unlike you, I don't hide under gray areas for a scapegoat. If calling you out on this BS you throw around on here acting as though it's the gospel (no pun intended), is gotcha, silly games, at least I'm intellectual enough to getcha!!! You've been owned big guy. BTW, if you want to know the meaning of blind faith, look it up. It's not difficult. In your words, "I'm not doing your research for you".

Someone must have changed Mikey's diaper, breast fed him and put him back in his cage, Bacon. There's got to be a reason for the spoiled brat's psychotic behavior and attention deficit disorder. Either Mikey's off his meds or someone should call Animal Control and have his zookeepers checked out for chump abuse.

Well, Silver, Bacon, you guys should be proud. Looks like the "wealthy democrats" are following your lead and moving their bucks off shore. First the Costco guy and now google. I think they were both on a "Presidential" council somewhere. According to a couple of posters on here they are traitors right? Not smart business people right? Lord, I can only hope they are typical democrat/Christians. Bacon your correct in the "grain of truth". To me, makes the entire grain field true.

What the hell is it with you redbone? Every time you disagree with a comment you blame your ex-redbone lover Gail. I'm sure you see white boogie men under your crib too. You're just as nutty as your gay bro Mikey. The only difference between you two is that you're still hiding your homosexuality but you can't hide your redbone, kaffir boy.

I pointed to Islam in this debate on women's rights. Guess you missed it. I am sure if there were any Muslims or Hindu's here, I would be talking about them more, but we only have Christians here, so I speak of your religion.

Yes, humans progress, but this is not due to religion, it is due to mans learning. Religion often lags behind the learning curve and clearly so on equal rights, as I gave evidence to. It is my claim that religion is holding us back from progress. When the secular society screams loud enough, religion eventually caves in to the progress. Even some Muslim societies are now showing some more rights for women. Not due to any events of god or religion, it is due to secularism.

The equality of being religious or not is the secular freedoms America is giving. Most all religious scripture 'demand' the people join their team. Many have enforced this by death and torture. See the inquisitions and crusades for evidence.

People came to the Americas for religious freedom that Europe was not giving. They were demanding certain forms of Christianity.
You will not see me 'demanding' anyone leave religion. You will not see me asking them to get their own island. To do so would be anti American. Anyone who says anything like this should be condemned. I see none of you condemned Waco when he did so. In fact, he got multiple 'agreement' icons.
So who is for freedom and equality here? It sure does not look like your team.
Maybe you should police your own team for a start in the battle of equality. Kind of like the Muslims who refused to condemn the attack of 9/11. It only makes your team look culpable.

I do not see the connection of your claims. I do not run from debates. I try to answer all questions as thoroughly as possible. I continue with any and all follow ups. Do you? No. Does anyone on your team do this? No.
And just who "smoked" me on religion? The debate you refer to was about someone who claims no religion. We had a civil, intellectual, and fairly thorough debate. You should go back and read it to see how it is done.

Clearly you do not remember what I said about "turning the other cheek" I do not agree with it, nor do I agree with "an eye for an eye". Both of these views are far to black and white for my tastes. My view is somewhere in the middle, just as our justice system is. You see, our American justice system does not follow the bibles ways here in any absolute manner.

I have thoroughly explained how I view the bibles accuracy. You just seem to think it is wishy washy. So? You see in black and white, so everything that is not, is wishy washy to you.

You see, if I think the bible is saying something good, it is not due to any blind faith, it is due to my reasoning due to my knowledge of good and bad. I accept nothing in the bible due to the claim a god said so. That is blind faith.
I do not then need to accept a claim in the bible as historically accurate.

You seem to confuse me with those Christians that actually believe in the bible with blind faith, yet do not believe in the whole bible with blind faith. Now that is a contradiction.

I didn't know individual opinion was a "team" effort, therefore I'm not "policing" anyone. I'm glad you know everyone's religion on here, you have been posting longer than I. So, you are saying religion has not changed in thousands of years? Religion doesn't have to be equal, it's a choice. An individual choice. You have made your and I have made mine, is that not equal? I believe waco was being sarcastic. One more question on that "grain of truth" thing, exactly what "grain" do you find truthful? It's a big wheat field and I find each grain connected.

Do you believe in every word of the bible? If so, then you should accept the commands I quoted that keep women from teaching.

I read it, and Seven smoked you and you know it. He ate your lunch and pretty much spit it back at you and if a team won, it was team Seven. He had a civil, intellectual and thorough debate and IMO, the best you could do was try to make excuses.
