Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

What can be proven is that the biblical god, Yahweh, does not and never did exist.l The authority for the existence of the biblical god is the story of Moses in the Book of Exodus. There God is said to have given Moses the Ten Commandments plus a lot of additional advice. But the biblical Moses could not have existed. The story in Exodus tells of how Joshua, Moses' successor, conquered Canaan around 1441 BCE (if you believe I Kings 6:1) or around 1263/2 BCE (if you believe Exodus 1:11).

But that is simply impossible because all of Canaan was under direct and continuous Egyptian control from 1550 BCE (when the Egyptians conquered Canaan) until 1141 BCE when Rameses VI withdrew Egyptian troops from Canaan to put down civil unrest in Egypt. There are numerous Egyptian records (such as the Amarna Letters) that tell about their control of Canaan during that period. If there were no conquest of Canaan, then there could have been no Exodus. And, if there were no Exodus, there would have been no Moses. And, if there were no Moses, there would have been no Yahweh handing out the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai (or Mount Horeb). I's really very simple.

You would like to think so.
Marriage was only between men and women when the Constitution was written. Period. No expectation it would ever be anything else. Marriage laws are up to the individual states.
There is no Constitutional right to same sex marriage on the Federal level.
Just like gays, coming in the back door to get what they want. Even if they have to pervert the Constitution. Again, you would have to pervert the 14th amendment to even get a foot in the door on that one.
The Constitution doesn't stipulate that marriage is between a man and a woman. The Fed would be free and clear of the issue if the tax code did not recognize some married couples but not others. Since the Fed does that, the only way to rectify it once and for all is to amend the Constitution, one way or the other. Make it clear.

Oh, yeah. I remember digging up all the posts and reposting them to show the lie the psycho witch of the west was telling a year later. All the posts. You bought that, eh? There were no pickups in it at all. I had noticed the ISP she had forgotten to hide, and which I told her about. Same ISP as SK. That was her cue to say I was trying to pick "him" up.

I picked up she wasn't a 14 year old boy in about 2 posts.

All the while she had all of her atheist buddies cheering this 14 year old kid taking on old Dave. They were so impressed with "his" intelligence. Some really fawned over "him'.

I am sure she received many PM from "admirers". Were you one of them, Aura?

SK is about as psychotic as they get, and it's very hard to miss. Yet she still has fans among her atheist buddies. Amazing.

I had given you credit for being a cut above the rest of these idiots. My mistake.

Many women take out the trash. Many men change diapers. Many men cook. Most women have jobs. None of those are particularly male or female jobs: they simply need to get done any anyone can do them.
Very few activities actually require a particular set of genitals.
My daughter was born a coupla months after my accident. I learned to change a diaper in less that a minute - one-handed.
Oh, and I can tie little baby shoelaces, while they're on little baby feet. One-handed.

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.
