<quoted text>Ok, so you do not know why, but does it not make you question? Seems to me you brush it off as if it were nothing.
Of course I wondered why. But probably the last time I thought about it was several years ago. I have questioned many things in my lifetime.
But I believe the doctrines of my church to be true.

<quoted text>So then by your reasoning here, no one is god-given the urge to have sex until marriage?
Not necessarily. The powers of procreation are very powerful, and with that great power, we must be responsible.
I would imagine that these urges were one if the causes of young marriage back in ancient times (coupled with short life expectancies).

The wondering atheist,Do you breath air?Where do you suppose it comes from?See, your wrong when you think that Christians have to prove that god exist.You have to prove that he don't.
really? where does the air come from? lmao for one the oxygen is a by product of photosynthesis and thats all we need from the air to survive. and if u claim something exist the proof is on u. i can say unicorns are real but no one believes it cuz i cant prove it. the same with santa claus and the easter bunny and all that so by your reasoning they are all real cuz i bet u cant prove any of those are not real. u cant prove something when there is zero evidence from either side. zero evidence means the default is it doesnt exist so if u want us to believe it does exist get some evidence. i apologize for your god since he cant seem to make any legit evidence unless a man does it for him. the same as the other beings i mentioned in this thread. the burden of proof is on u the believer but u know u cant prove it so u try to change the way that all other things in life work just to fit your little fantasy. when your god gets all this power u claim maybe he can prove he exist but from the looks of it i think maybe he dont have the power to prove it cuz he doesnt exist.

What is really funny is that most Christians will end up in hell, according to the Bible on 12,000 will enter the kingdom of heaven
You are both wrong,thereby proving your lack of knowledge regarding the Scriptures.
You are reffering to Rev7;4 to 8 and conveniently left out the next verse Revelation 7:9
The Great Multitude in White Robes
9 After this I looked, and there before me was a( GREAT multitude that no one could COUNT), from EVERY nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
You both,are either misinformeb OR intentionally deceitful
keep on reading....lol u will learn the ones that cant be counted are not goin to heaven. they will be living on the jesus controlled earth while the jewish 144k go on to heaven to be with the main god. u actually need to learn your bible a little better. dont make a statement that is wrong unless u read the whole thing. there are many many scriptures that tell u that no man will enter the gates of heaven but i guess u just ignore those as u go huh? lol this is one case that u dont know what u are talkin about but still had the arrogance about u to point out that u know more about it than me and for that i thank u, just proves more and more that the followers follow blind cuz they dont know what really is in the book.

So why aren't those from pacific islands black? Why aren't people from nearest the equator black? Why are Eskimos darker skinned? Why are there white people in Africa?
im not exactly sure why but i can give u a pretty solid explaination and im far from a scientist or studied this topic. for one, africa is supposedly the start of humans so they have had more time to get darker that others at the equator but in turn all equator peoples have darker skin than norhtern europeans so they are turning slowly as they evolve. for eskimos i would guess because of the longer days they endure during certain time of the year it would cause them to produce more melanin in order to protect them during those months. and for the white ppl in africa, i know that is a no brainer, africa has diamonds and white ppl want them so they migrated there to rape africa of all its natural resources and make money from the resources and the ppl as slaves during the british colonial times. just sayin that in places of more sun light hrs u get ppl with darker skin for the protection it provides and when u get in the more equal parts inthe northern and southern hemispheres the ppl get lighter skin cause they are covered up more in the cold and the day hrs arent as long as other places so the body doesnt need all that extra protection.

But thanks for proving my main point. The passage just breeds hate.
No hate... that's your position!

<quoted text>Well it is kind of hard to take down the old ones, but adding new ones is what I am talking about.
I think the old ones should stay, as a testament to what our old ways of thought were. It is historical.
I do too, and I agree, they do speak volumes about the history of our nation.
Some of us find much merit in their common sense words of decency and ethics, for those who choose to acknowledge them anyway.

I for one would not want to exist, or be any part of anything that exists at such sub-par, sub-human, ignorant and intolerant level as to disrespect any thing even similar, so callously, as displayed by the destroyers of the Bimyian Statues, for example. Not ever.

That would be according to whom you speak to, how much they've actually "read" in their lives, and then which ones they personally consider "applicable".:-)

Lmao, "reasoning", that and belief, meltdown.
You appear to be having one, in that the whole world will never just see things "your way". Might as well get used to it, that'll never happen.

That doesn't "entitle" you to disrespect others based upon beliefs they may or may not have though, because in doing so, you just put yourself at the same scummy, low life, inhumane level as terrorist, and that sure is NOT anything to be proud of. Not at all.

There is a BB theory, quite an established one.

Just some people have no issue with it, an d believe that it has merit-as well as the Bible, and that the two CAN and often DO, go right hand in hand, as in no need whatsoever to NOT think that BOTH bring their own contributions to humankind, on the "origins" and evolutions of the world and it's inhabitants as we know it.
Why some of us even find the BS that it has to be "either" the BB or Creationism, utterly contemptible, severely lacking and devoid of much of any logic at all.

Why do you think the Bible is "just" about "a" God? I find that concept quite limited of any actual, real "thought".
