Try to comprehend--I'll use small words.

There have been big-ass floods all through history. But there is no evidence that there was ever one flood that covered the globe. You'd think the chinese would have noticed it, at least, but there's no mention at all in their history.

Roads don't become rivers--they get covered with water.

What laws are doctors breaking?

<quoted text>The creation story, and the story of the vapor canopy, are the basis for the claim that Earth is only 6000 years old, too.
They discovered the remains of hominids and dinosaurs, carbon dated to be well over the 6000 biblical years for which the creation / water canopy stories account, for finishers.
Picking and choosing when to 'believe in' carbon dating, and other methods of compiling scientific evidence, is fundamental to your assertions.
The earth isn't just 6,000 yers old nor was it made in six days. I always believe in carbon dating as long as what is being dated is the real thing.

<quoted text>+30.
J'ever notice that nine times in ten, when the word 'hate' is offered in a post, it's by someone who identifies with Christianity? It's that whole 'projection' thing.
I counted all the instances once, for about 3 weeks, and it was really interesting how often 'Christians' use that word. Either "God hates______(insert whatever it is THEY hate here)" or "_____ hates God," or "_____hates Christians."
Non-Christians generally only use it in response to Christian assertions of the above sort. Out of about 500 posts containing the word, which I read, posters who identified with anything other than Christianity, used "I hate ___....." a grand total of 11 times. So,'nine out of ten' is a very generous estimate...it's actually more like 'ninety-eight out of one hundred'.
Just sayin.
Just identifying the pro aborts post for what they are. Hate filled.

Hate for unborn babies
Men
Women who change their minds and don't abort.
God
Christians, especially Catholics
Anyone who doesn't agree with you on any subject.
Women who give birth and wouldn't think of aborting an unplanned pregnancy for convenience.
The list goes on.

Either the bible is the inerrant word of your god, or it isn't. If you say it wasn't world-wide, then it was just another flood. Nothing miraculous about it; the nile floods all the time.

How do you suppose that this "waste of semen"can stir the consciences of a woman enough to cause her guilt and shame? Sounds to me that she is then full of guilt and shame. She should be, as should you, for supporting killing developing humans in the womb as choice.
Pfft.
Glad you found the truth about your motives so entertaining.

Make up your mind - do non-believers have consciences, or not - and then proceed from there. What do you say to atheist women who gestate their pregnancies? Don't they 'know the difference between right and wrong'?

Tell me, where in the Bible does God mention fetuses? Where does Jesus mention them? What guilt or shame does either version of your deity ascribe to women who abort?

Since when did God say fetuses 'should' have a voice? Why didn't he give them one, or does he just not give a shit?

He kills them routinely, you know. With intent. Go figure.

True, and beliefs also varied from one area to another. But he was never omniscient and omnipotent like the christian god, and was still subject to the Fates.

This one lasted long enough to show archeological evidence and to remain in the memories of the people there for generations.

No one said it was a miracle. The miracle was that Noah was warned well ahead of time.

<quoted text>Your first question was a joke obviously.::chuckle chuckle::
If abortion becomes illegal, it will be called murder. The Hitman(Dr) and his client(Mom) should be charged like any other murder. IF Dad is part of it, he should be charged accordingly.
Bet the couples who can't control themselves sexually will have to think twice before having sex when the woma is fertile. NO abortion or imprisonment for killing will make people take responsibility for their actions.
No more "Uh...duh...i didn't know sex lead to pregnancy" ESPECIALLY among adults.
Don't want a baby, don't conceive one. IMAGINE that?!?!
It wasn't anything approaching a joke. Technology has advanced sufficiently to provide for that sort of microchip already. Once the religious right is firmly in power, it becomes more and more likely that women will be implanted with one. Be careful what you wish for.

At least you're honest about what consequences you'd like to see for women who abort - but as a person who calls herself 'pro-life', advocating the death penalty for women who abort a pregnancy, has negated the meaning of your purported stance.

Your whole agenda is controlling "....the couples who can't control themselves sexually..." Guess what? You are not your God.

And as long as prevention is available and practiced, both unwanted pregnancy AND abortion will continue to get less and less prevalent. As they have for the last two decades. Proportionate to the number of live births, the number of abortions has decreased by about 25% since the 1970's. Pro-birth folks are winning, and that trend started before all the restrictive, and punitive, right-wing sponsored encroachments, on a woman's reproductive rights.

But you're against contraception, too.

Which makes you, dear sassy, a POSTER CHILD for 'pro-birth' and 'pro-control' rather than 'pro-life'.

Get the hell out of my uterus, and stay out.

You don't think that is an angry post?

The Bible speaks of the child in the womb as a child and that He knows them before they are born.

Find one post...ONE...in which I used the word 'hate' to describe ANY of those things.

ONE.(or as many as you can!!)

I'll wait...

Christians ascribe that word to everyone's motives besides their own.

I don't.

Of course it's an angry post. But you fail to understand that it's not a 'god' I'm angry at, Ink. I'm angry at the behavior of people like you, who claim to speak for the Divine, and whose interpretation of the laws of Nature is contrary to every aspect of God. Most especially the ones who hold and put forth these opinions, in legislatjion which applies to everyone.

And I still don't hate you. Or your religion, or your version of the Divine, or mothers who don't abort, or protestors, or even those lawmakers. The lawmakers disgust me, and I disparage them. But I honestly don't 'hate' much of anything, other than hypocrisy and threats.

Prove I do.

G'head.

I'll take your word for it.

Why are you angry at my behavior? I don't speak for the Divine but if you believe that there is a Divine, He has made it very clear how He wants us to live and you seem to be disgusted by those who try and follow His rules. The laws of God and nature co-exist comfortably. When you go against them, life is tougher. I know that from experience.
