So you have three people rejecting the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman. How nice .
That's what you got of the info provided to you at your request?

Did you bother to read the link? The history?

Will you at least concede it goes back further than the 25yrs you requested?

Why don't you, just for fun, look up the Greeks' idea of "love".

if it really happened as the scientists say, who told us about it? Decendents of the people who survived it.
Uh huh...and how many centuries ago did this flood allegedly take place? And how many generations have been passing this story down? And what was the knowledge of the Earth's size and topography back in Noah's day? How would these people know the whole world was flooded? They didn't know what the whole world looked like, or how big it was, and it's more likely old climates drove regular flooding just as our modern climate does now, and those ancient people didn't know what to make of it. And usually the most popular explanation for things the ancients didn't understand was that some unseen god did it.

The only "fact" in the story is that floods are common on this planet and chances are a few happened a long, long time ago.

If you saw a neighbor working hard day and night for several weeks building an ark in his back yard, and you went and asked him what he was up to, and he told you God spoke to him and instructed him to build said ark because God was planning a huge flood that would wipe out most of the planet, you would probably think the guy is a nut.

Hoses can't marry at all.

BTW--if you have two male hose ends of different diameters, they can join together just like a male/female coupling.

Yes you can marry a female hose end to a male hose end but you can't marry twos ends that are the same.

You even quoted that it comes from old French. Trace the history. Go do your own research instead of making more incorrect claims.

She still refuses to acknowledge that there is no evidence of the noahs arc flood... Story,which we should just call a myth or a fable.

Show me a dictionary that isn't recent that includes same sex relationship as a 'marriage.'
The meaning has been changed. Why not just accept it and be 'Gay Power Proud'
I accepted the fact that sexual orientation should have nothing to do with a person's rights, a long time ago.

When you accept the fact that gays can marry, without whining that they're getting 'special rights', get back to me.

So you're going to side with Ink and believe that 100% of Gays do not face murder, but that 100% of embryo/fetuses do?
first off, stop lying. i never said gays do not face murder. what i said is that 100% of embryos/fetuses also do. and that is a fact. in fact, the threat embryos/fetuses face is even greater because killing them is legal. at least born gay people have laws protecting them.
Wow.
you're shocked that i would side with those who state facts?

wow.

Claiming abortion is "an issue of basic fudamental human rights," is a form of Christian dogma.
so is the belief that stealing is wrong. it doesn't mean that belief is exclusive to christians however. one need not be christian to hold the belief that taking someone else's property is wrong.
Human rights are premised on those already born.
"From this foundation, the modern human rights arguments emerged over the latter half of the twentieth century.[6]
Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world...
—1st sentence of the Preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
—Article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)[7]"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_rights
3.2 Rights of Women, Minorities, and Groups
(this entire section is informative and contains several other links)
http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/rights-huma...
"The Court’s conclusions of violations contrary to the American Convention on Human Rights followed from its ruling that, under the Convention, in vitro embryos are not “persons” and do not possess a right to life. Accordingly, the prohibition of IVF to protect embryos constituted a disproportionate and unjustifiable denial of infertile individuals’ human rights. The Court distinguished fertilization from conception, since conception—unlike fertilization—depends on an embryo’s implantation in a woman’s body. Under human rights law, legal protection of an embryo “from conception” is inapplicable between its creation by fertilization and completion of its implantation in utero."
http://reprohealthlaw.wordpress.com/2013/09/1...
the belief that abortion is an issue of human rights is not a belief that is exclusive to christians. there are atheists who are opposed to abortion based on the very premise that the fetus is a distinct "being" and a member of the species homo sapien. ever hear of robert price ? christopher hitchens ? nat hentoff ?
you have no idea what you're talking about.
but then again look who i'm trying to explain this to, a birdbrain who doesn't believe that pregnancy can be a direct result of a willful act.

Whichever way the wind blows, eh?
you fundies? i am no fundie. not even close.
you're a one trick pony. when you cannot refute a point you always fall back on your "fundie" accusation. arguing the merits of your position based solely on facts leaves you a quivering, stumbling mess.

science says it is a distinct human life inside the womb.
Sentimentality and overwrought emotions about other women's pregnancies, claim it's a 'baby'- but a BABY would suffocate in a womb.
(Babies are born, and breathe air. FETUSES, not so much.)
baby is a subjective term. no one is "wrong" if they claim a fetus is a baby.
so now, in addition to birth and viability, the ability to process oxygen is now the basis for determining whether the right to life should be legally protected?
Try again?
yeah. but this time i want to destroy shovel's logic. can you summon her please ? you phony.

And you think you're not a funde!!!!!

Nope, not a single shred of evidence to link any flood to the Noahs arc fable in the links ink provided. Get back to us know when you can be honest

Wrong. A same-sex marriage doesn't have YOUR god. And doesn't want it. Why pledge eternal faithfulness to your loved one, in the name of a weak sauce deity that can't even stop heteros from having gay kids??

Yes I know their idea of love. Holding boys in their keeping for sodomizing. I will grant you that lifestyle goes way back. My question was about recognizable marriages.
