All evidence points to higher intellectual levels for non-believers. Traits that define higher intellects are reason, logic, and skepticism. Just the fact that Atheism rejects childish and unsupported Theistic claims shows a higher level of intelligence. To suggest that Atheist somehow lack an understanding of humanitarianism is evidence of extreme ignorance and bias.

You have put yourself in a position of claiming Atheist lack any kind of compassion and understanding toward their fellow brothers and sister of the planet. This frames you are having one of the worst traits a human being can possess, that of being willfully ignorant.

Apparently you have no idea what Contemporary means. Both Titus and Josephus wrote about Jesus DECADES after his life. They were writing things about Jesus based on stories that had been passed down. We all know about that experience when one person tells a story, and that story is passed along between 10 or 20 people, by the time the story is retold by the 20th person, it resembles little of the original. Now multiply that by 20 to 30 years of stories passed along by countless people. So ONCE AGAIN, there are NO CONTEMPORARY accounts of Jesus outside of the immoral and evil bible.

The Romans kept real good records, they were especially diligent in recording their crucifixions. There are NO records of anyone names Jesus King of the Jews as being crucified, go figure!!!

You are such a blonde 'rational atheist' oxymoron!!!
Those billions in churches are giving support to millions of Christians sacrificially serving and reaching out to the sick and dying.
And atheists have nothing, NOTHING, comparable. You have the audacity not just to lie about it, but to even judge???
You seriously need to repent in shame.
You spelled artificially wrong.

Here's the truth baby,
X = Ecstasy
As in the following from http://www.drugs.he alth
Cracked teeth through clenching and grinding
High blood pressure
Possible memory and attention impairment
Lethargy
Decreased emotional control
Severe depression
Possible nerve cell damage
Taking ecstasy in a hot or humid environment, like a dance party or nightclub, can cause dehydration and raise the body’s temperature to dangerous levels. This increases the risk of the body heating up to levels that cause organs to fail, breakdown and eventually cause the heart to stop.
There is also a risk of serotonin syndrome or toxicity, which is an excess of the neurotransmitter serotonin (brain chemical) typically caused from mixing ecstasy with various, but not all, antidepressants or simply taking an overdose. The symptoms include:
agitation
confusion
headache
tachycardia – a rapid heart beat that greater than 100 beats per minute
hypertension (high blood pressure)
hyperpyrexia – an abnormally high fever
muscle twitches
coma
death.

I worked in a morgue. I'm well versed on death.

On a spiritual level, I base the term on the effect of the Fall on our physical being. Our sexual makeup is certainly not immune. In fact, I would speculate that we all display some measure of sexual defect. I certainly do.
I understand we are uncomfortable with the term defect. Especially in relation to sexual orientation and identity in this period of time where political correctness overrules reality. I have a tendency to use a verbal bat to break through the crust of those dangerous lies.
You're an idiot.

I can't believe people need to take a drug like that just to "party".
I knew this guy in construction that had an ecstasy-fueled weekend with two whores. On Monday he felt the need to brag all about it, said that he danced and screwed all weekend long.
Sounds great, huh?
Nope. He had no skin left on his dick, he fucked it all off. He was dead tired and greatly dehydrated. He was incoherent in his speaking, we wouldn't let him work, he was too much of a danger to us in the state he was in. He had to leave work, go to the ER and was out of commission for a few weeks while his pee-pee healed.
Two whats?

What state was he in?

His pee-pee?

YOU claimed the Bible is a baseless fiction book. I'm simply asking you to explain the circumstances surrounding a specific event recorded in it. The account claims a extra terrestrial visitor, which I accurately note.

Sadly, no, there are zero contemporaneous accounts of a magical Christ and even fewer (duh, magic) of an itinerant Jewish traitor named Jesus.

This has been described ad nauseum on this thread. Send us your Jav-You-R's.

Gay marrage does not require permanence. A marrage contract can have an expiration date, or an easy opt-out clause.
Nor does gay marrage require sexual exclusivity. In fact, it unconstitutionally restricts freedom.
Marriage is for life, because it connects the mother and father to their children.
Marriage is also sexually exclusive so children can be raised by their mother and father.
Ss marrage doesn't require children, therefor it needs neither.
I simply note the historical function of marriage which distinguishes it from marrage and point out the change that occurred with no-fault divorce (children are not considered in divorce), and abortion (children are murdered for convenience). Hence the divorce and childless rate today.
In marrage, children are not required (or possible). However, there are still mothers and fathers committed and monogamous for the sake of their children. Marriage.

I don't know why you're on the floor, because I never said that all living things are sentient. I didn't say that and I certainly didn't imply it.

You actually think like the ancients who believed that living things were made of some special material that was different than the material of non living stuff.

That has long been disproven.

The atoms heavier than hydrogen, helium and lithium in your body were ALL formed in stars. It's what stars do.

You seem to think that things with the same atoms are the same. Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide have the same atoms. Carbon and oxygen. They are both very different gasses. Water is on atom of oxygen and 2 atoms of hydrogen. It is necessary for life as we know it. Hydrogen peroxide is 2 atoms of hydrogen and 2 atoms of oxygen. It is extremely corrosive and would kill you in a heartbeat if you drank it.

I take it your GED didn't include chemistry.
