LOL the act of preforming a marriage does not provide stability, that us nothing more than a traditional ceremony
It is the attitude toward a partnership and commitment of the people involved that provides stability.
My wife is not my property, she is my partner, my best friend,, and the one person that I could tell anything to.
My marriage is stable, and not because of some piece of paper.
Then why did you marry?

We enjoyed the party, and wanted to have it, it is as much for our friends and family as for ourselves.

We spent more on the Honeymoon than we did the ceremony.

And there are legal ramifications it was a good idea to do at that point in our relationship

But that ceremony and that piece of paper does not make our marriage, we do.

I'll take that to mean you've never had any sexual satisfaction. No wonder you are such a bitter little kill joy.
A killjoy eh? You're the only killjoy here, a killjoy of yourself. You don't have any body you love who you can share sex as a sign of affection with, no wonder you seek it so many times. Poor child.

Yeah? "Let there be light".
Light, day and night before the sun was created in Gen 1:16.
It's clear they didn't know that day and night were caused by the rotation of section of the earth towards and away form the sun. It also seems they believed the moon produced its own light, and it's clear they believed the earth was flat, and the heavens were solid.
God refers to light coming from the stars, the moon, and the sun, never from anywhere else.

Tell us a biblical prophesy that has come true.
Again, not one of the vague, "and there will be disease and war in various places" type of "prophesy". And no circular ones, prophesies both written and "fulfilled" in the buybull.
The bible doesn't need to say it. The prophecies were written for much beyond the times the bible was written. And the events of them exploding all over the world is good enough.

The your God is wrong

There is no light from the moon, only reflected light from the Sun, which is an unremarkable star nowhere near the center of our galaxy, and not a first generation one either, many stars are older than our sun.

Explain how you can whine about polygamy and monogamy at the same time.
"Interested in equality"..... THAT'S a laugh.
It's not a football game. They are not opposing teams jackass! They are different forms of marriage all deserving of the same respect and consideration.

Yes. I'm interested in equality. And you're not. That's why you're mad.

Do your anti-poly rant again! "What about the children!"

HAR!HAR!HAR!

Yes, and gays can't have the reasons, and the the connections to marry and make it work. And what makes you think you are so special? You are a very poor stagnated individual who has to create his own ideas of the world throughout his own life! You already started to at a very young age and now you listen to your childish self from the past. What a worm! Pathetic!

Getting more ideas again? How smart were you with your parents? A cheeky rascal were you? No wonder it was so hard for them to love you! The sunlight reflected off the moon, making it a great light! Cherrypicking again eh? Kids often do that, with themselves you see, lying to themselves to try to make sense of the world!

Not ideas, facts

You and your bible didnít seem to know, of course the people that wrote it didnít know at that time either, which is why they mention 4 corners of the earth that donít exist.

Why didnít he mention that our particular star is Billions of years younger than other stars, that it didnít actually exist at all until an older star existed, and exploded creating a shock wave that was instrumental in creating our solar system.

Many of the elements in our system could not exist in a first generation system you know, only from the remnants of an older star.

This is all established fact, not conjecture.

Thats what kids normally say when they thing they have figured it all out when they really don't understand their poorly based doctrines they make up in their own sillly little heads. Nice to see the sheltered dhildhood life you have carried into your later life.

You are so clueless

Do you know the Big Bang was first put forward from a religious astronomer, and considered it a triumph of religion when it was proved to be fact?

There is no doctrine, no belief that I cling to.

1. get the word right if you're going to use it. the word is bestiality, dud.
2. they're educated guesses, not "wags" like you're tossing out.

seriously. you try to tell us you're not an idiot, that you're an adult in their 50s....and then you type what you do in your posts? i've never seen such blind ignorance anywhere else in my life - and i'm in my 50s as well.

seriously, read some books, if you can. beyond that of elementary school libraries.

good luck.
