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.

You appear to be obsessed with prison.

Was it because you long to return there?

Or is it because your Faith teaches you to be a slave?

I mean, the whole "master slave" is pretty much the entire theme of the new testament stories.

So I can see why you'd be longing for the prison life.

This Land is Your Land
words and music by Woody Guthrie

Chorus:
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me
As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

Chorus
I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

Chorus
The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

Chorus
As I was walkin'- I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!

Chorus
In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.

Morality comes from parents, not the bible. Witness a sibling punching his brother in the nose. Now, is the parent to tell the puncher to go read the bible for moral guidance? No. The parent would say to the puncher, "how would you like me to punch you in the nose so you know how it feels"? Problem solved with no bible needed.
Before the Bible "Cain" killed his brother "Able."

"Able" was a good guy, he didn't even cheat in poker.

So I would say you are correct in that Adam and Eve didn't teach Cain to respect his brother. It was the first case of road rage but without the cars.

I think you were there but never mind that your out and behaving yourself, I hope. I was kinda close to the Jail. The Jail was over the top of the 911/Police dispatchers where I worked for a few months. It was a wonderful experience and I met a lot of really nice people.

Very childish song. Of course the music is really juvenile, all diatonic, not much substance.

There were a lot of nice prisoners too. They are really interesting people when they're not drunk or stoned. I remember this one dear old lady with white hair coming in every week during visitation. Her son had robbed a bank.

She was just a sweetheart. He had done something really bad but Mom still loved him. I hope he got out after serving his time and spent some quality time with his Mom.

Why did he rob the bank? Bill collectors drove him crazy and he thought that was the only way out.

Elvis wouldn’t have sang that song. But school children did for their Mom’s and Dad’s. I remember hearing it when I was a kid and that’s why I looked it up.

It kind of fits here since you Atheist are trying to be the school yard bullies.

I remember when my son was going to college and he was taking a music history class. The professor brought in a this guy who played and sang some of the old folk songs in early American History.

After this guy sang his first song two thirds of the class got up and walked out. The professor was teed off to say the least. Music from a different time period is different than music of today but it’s still music.

Myself, I still love the deep African American Blues when it’s from the soul. I just love it along with some classy Jazz.

For one thing?

Eve was a clone of Adam, right? A rib-"woman"?

That would mean ... Eve was really.... Steve... a man.

(St)Eve would have had XY chromosomes, identical to Adam's.

Since that is patently impossible?

The entire edifice falls apart at the seams.

And I'll leave you one from your kind, loving, caring, and compassionate God. Maybe this is why he refuses to answer the prayers of amputee's, after seeing this, he obviously hates any kind of deformities.

21:16 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
21:17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
21:18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
21:19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
21:20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

Projection on your part. I have never even been arrested.

I simply do not break the law-- I just don't.

Unlike the majority of you christians?

I actually think the Rule Of Law, i.e. the Constitution, is a brilliant idea.

Years ago, I was close friends with a police dispatcher. She was quite interesting, and had lots of cop-stories to tell.

These days? I know a couple of the Tulsa police-- good people.

Desperate times creates desperate people.

The current ReThuglicans are hell-bent on re-creating desperate times for people making less than 50k.

Unless Adam had 46 XY chromosomes and 46 XX chromosomes,
which if um , if it did. It would made Adam either a chimera or a hermaphrodite. But we know this is a ridiculous contention.
Because there is no documented species that evolved this way , because the condition is an isolated and a rare circumstance.
