Is it immoral for animals to hunt other animals for food?
Thought you claimed to grasp the conceptual difference between religious and secular stuff?!?

And yet Christians kill their fellow Christians in war and follow dictators. Jesus told you Christians it's ok to do it?

You probably couldn't pay enough for that kind of actual U.N.ish type of work, so why would anyone waste the effort.
(Reminds me of an OLD saying...about NOT working harder...especially NOT for freeriders!!)
It was your lamed brained idea.
Again, maybe try leading by example. Show how secularism works by example. Yet you are here defending anti secularism. You can't have it both ways. It is hypocritical. Not that you even understand the word.

Practice some secularism then tell the middle east to do it. Otherwise it is blatant hypocrisy.
I think we should'VE minded our own business (which should NOT have included LIBYA) and let the middle east sort their own out.
That's what I think.

And no I don't. I wasn't raised to whip others with a Bible belt, I just choose to enjoy the reading of on occasions.

Being as it's a far different reading classification from Science and all.

I am aware some behave like jackasses. You are doing it right now with this post. You avoided all the points and diverted. Then you call names and run.

Just what is so offensive about being descendants of apes? It does not mean humans are not smarter than apes in most areas. Although studies show apes have far better short term memory than humans. But it suits their needs.
Apes cannot imagine as humans do. It is what makes us different. The similarities are many, but the differences make for large effectual differences.
But many of our instincts are the same. Now just try to use intellect a bit more and maybe a bit less animal instinct if you wish to not be like the apes. But you continually show your instinctive side over your intellectual side. B
But you certainly show your imaginative side. But your instinctive side clings to the imagination as if it were actual fact.
Herein lies the human condition.

Yes I have,,,,,,But never by using gibberish and nonsense.
Those cases are readily dismissed when the evidence is based on opinions ,unconfirmed events which can not be explained and other types of nonsense.
How one interprets nonsense does not alter the fact that it is nonsense.
That , in spite of the opinions of those who have adopted Science Fiction as reality.
hum So when you state unequivocally that god exists, you have proof, if so present it, if not, it is considered your opinion as well, just as non believers have no proof he doesn't exist, but in my opinion, the odds are against a god. God is the creation of man, from mankind and not based on any facts or evidence. Nor is there anyway to prove or disprove the existence of fairies, ghosts, demons, spirits, angels, or
any other imaginable ideas derived from the minds of humans.
What we need is a testable, falsifiable hypothesis to examine that would allow us to investigate any of these hypothetical ideas.

If you wish to show I do not, then please show it. As of yet, you have not shown anything but a snarky attitude.

So you refuse to show secularism and insist on demanding the middle east to be secular, because you feel persecuted unjustly? Can you whine a bit more?

Easy is lazy. It is easy to look to the supernatural for answers, instead of science. Goddidit, goddidit, goddidit. That is all you need to say pal.

You mean like staying out of Iraq? I would love to agree with you on staying out, but you keep showing it is not your true belief. Either that or you are hypocritical of your beliefs.

No, you do not use the bible belt, you invent your own tools. Like a stone for a stone. You just borrowed the general concept from the bible, just as all religions seem to borrow from one another.
Smith and Hubbard would be proud of you.

Let me cut through all your nonsense and get right to the point
Faith in Christianity is based on the work and teachings of Jesus Christ
Christiani faith causes change as it seeks a greater understanding of God. Faith is not based on simple obedience to a set of rules . Before we can eatablish our faith we need to understand in whom and in what our faith is based. Without understanding, we cannot have true faith, and that understanding is built on the foundation of the community of believers, the scriptures and traditions and on OUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCES AS BELIEVERS.
Those personal experiences are the experiences that we have had in our personal relationship to our GOD .
AND , There is a way by which one can establish a personal relationship with God...
God has established said way for those who diliogently seek him.
So , those who do not believe have no excuse.

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.
Thomas Aquinas

Wow, all that typing and all you needed to type was>>> I have no proof, my proof is based on faith, which in turn is based on my opinion of god being real.

Nothing wrong with being descended from apes .....If you are an Ape.
I am not an ape.
If one chooses to state that one is descended from apes as an excuse to deny having been created by God , so be it.
I do believe God created the Human Race ,Apes and all other creatures.
All were created and designed by a superior intelligence , which neither evolution or science is able to explain.
That is understandable.
Life and intelligence did not come about by natural means.
No ,,,,Life did not come about by accidental means.
The nonliving did not covert into the living by an accident which Science is not able to explain .
Same applies to Intelligence .
And you are right ... Science DOES NOT KNOW EVERYTHING.
And Science claims as much as they claim not to be able to explain the Supernatural.
You need to keep taking your test until you find the RIGHT test.
And you know what that test is......I do not need to remind you.

Obviously , in your state of stupor , you overlooked the gist of my message.
That may be attributed to your chopping wood yesterday with your friends.
The tree that fell on your head undoubtedly dulled your senses.
Let that be a lesson to you.
Next time you hear someone yell TIMMMMBERRRR you better look up and get outta the way.
