How can you measure the "magnitude" of the Noah flood when you've already admitted the people of the time had no idea how large the Earth was? The flood could've covered a mere 10 mile radius but those people would've only perceived it as a massive flood because they didn't know any better. Those ancient people may have thought that a flood was covering their whole world while in reality most of the Earth remained unaffected. So what proof do you have of the "magnitude" of that one particular flood? And again, where is your proof is was the work of a god?
The latest investigations say it was probably 150,000 sq. kilometers and extremely fast rising.

i view abortion as a human rights issue. my opposition to it is not based at all on religion. i favor the use of contraception. i support sex/contraception education, and i have no objection whatsoever to gay marriage. if i'm a fundie you better start a campaign to have the definition changed.
kills you that you can't pigeon hole everyone you disagree with and that you might actually have to argue the merits of your position rather than resort to personal attacks, doesn't it?
turns you into a stuttering, stammering mess.
She won't buy it that she has a warped view of people who oppose abortion.

You don't know what a fundamentalist Christian is. You call everybody that.
calling everyone a fundie is their catch-all response. they use it in lieu of a real argument for their position. this misogynist obsessed loony tunes and that bigot moon are the worst offenders.

I am not shocked *you* believe Ink's going off what you call "facts".[QUOTE]

yes you are. you said "wow".

and what do you know...not mention or apology about your lie that i agreed that gays do not face the possibility of death on someone's whim. that's par for the course for you.

[QUOTE]I completely disagree with both you and Ink. No need to converse further.
you "completely" disgree huh ? let's see we both believe that gays face the possibility of death on someone's whim so there can be no "complete" disagreement there.

i explained how fetuses in fact "do" face the possibility of death on someone's whim. now if you disagree explain why.
my guess is you'll take the cowardly "no need to converse further" approach. why? because you can't explain why.

The Bible is not the original document for any of it's content, and I think you know that, so where is the original written account that was transcribed into the OT? Where is the original document?
Maybe in Israel.

The "belief that abortion is an issue of human rights" is an erroneous belief. Whether Christians or Atheists hold on to it makes no difference.
of course it makes a difference. how is it possible for an atheist/secularist to oppose abortion based on religious beliefs when not only do they not hold any religious beliefs and deny the existence of any deity ?
Nor does it exclude the fact you *believe* you're not acting religiously in your beliefs. Or that religion holds no sway over your beliefs.
who the hell are you to tell me what my beliefs are based on ?
no offense lady but you are a whack job. i picture you as edith bunker....only not nearly as intelligent.
You can keep telling me and others it does not, but your own words belie that message.
really? which words ? and be specific. why must my belief that a fetus is a member of the human race be based on religion or god ? it is consistent with science. it is only "your" subjective/philosophical belief that this human individual is not a "person" or not a "human being".
Besides, what do you care what I think about you anyway? You're probably care for me as little as I care for you.
you stick your nose in and respond to a post not even directed at you...proceed to tell me that what i believe is not really what i believe and then when i dare to respond you have the nerve to ask why ?

you're a kook.

It is amazing what you can deny when you don't want to believe something. Be it a flood or that it is a child being killed in an abortion.

Then I imagine you are a bigot against atheists and/or pro-choicers.
not at all. i disagree with one particular position that they hold, nothing more.
i'm not biased against them based on who they are. i would never portray all of them as sexual deviants or negatively stereotype them simply because of what race or religion they might belong to. that's you sweetheart
The shoes fits on either foot...bigot.
you're a complete and utter failure with respect to your attempts to defend your bigotry. you're pathetic.

Thing is,numbnuts, that we were taking about evidence to back up the noahs arc story. Try paying attention.

point of clarification, mutt. i should not have used the term "murder". what bitner said was that 100% of gays "face the possibility of death at someone's whim" while 100% of embryos/fetuses do not.

unless you are referring to the way your loving god slaughters fetuses at random. Women who want to carry have no intention of aborting; the fetus will develop normally unless your deity does something horrific.
<quoted text>
wrong mutt. women who want to carry can always change their minds.....on a whim. even those who claim to be pro life are still subject to changing their mind, either through coercion from another or due to a change in their own personal circumstances. the possibility can never be ruled out. the fact that the killing of a fetus is legal and easily accessible makes the possibility that much greater. at least gays have laws that might deter the "whim" of a potentail attacker.

Couldn't it have been the same flood reported by many different cultures?
Sure, if you ignore the years in between stories. I mean really. Different cultures and different peoples of different times talking about floods and you think it's just one flood?

It is a known fact Christianity "borrowed" their stories from earlier beliefs. There are three stories of the virgin birth going way back before Jesus was born. And these are identical in detail. Only the names and faces have changed.

And... it's all based on early understandings of Astrology. Like what you call "End Times" actually refers to the end of an age. Right now we're in the Age of Pisces (a fish... hmmm .... ringing any bells?), but will soon be moving into the Age of Aquarius.

I know plenty about male & female parts or hoses, thank you. You can still place a smaller diameter hose into a larger one. Perhaps I missed the context of your discussion. If I did and am mistaken, I do apologize for jumping the gun.

Your concept of right and wrong is not universal. For instance, most cultures oppose stealing because it is disruptive to group unity, which was paramount in small communities. On the other hand, some cultures had a god who looked over thieves, like mercury (hermes); theft was allowable in some circumstances. One of the greatest western heroes was robin hood, who was a thief and occasional murderer.
Abortion beliefs are just that--beliefs. The ONLY beliefs that are pertinent, however, are those of the pregnant woman. She is the only sentient being directly affected by the pregnancy.
<quoted text>
what are you babbling about ? the universality of the concept of right and wrong was not the issue here. the issue was simply the fact that religion need not be the basis for opposition to abortion.

go back to your own little fantasy world where you create issues and arguments that don't exist and then respond to them. don't involve me in them though, mutt.

Including the creation of our world, 800 year old people, angels, noahs arc & the resurrection of jesus?

I doubt science will ever validate anything of that nature.

Why do you continue the be so dense? Flooding on our planet is not in dispute; it is the Story of noahs arc, and the details of that story, that we can deny because there isn't any evidence.
