Hmmm..we need a catchy tune to go with that. Can you think of one?

Your cult of liars doesn't matter until it can prove the god it fails at selling us.

I'm always stunned when Christians tell this story with such glee. According to you, your god killed almost everyone on the planet, including all the children and babies (who didn't have a "choice" by the way) and you guys think it is just the most awesome thing.
What a horrifying religion.
Religious mental illnesses are a danger to society. Unfortunately we have to deal with liars who cover up for their cult and excuse it's horrors with shameless cult lies.

The Atheist of the time decided it was all a hoax, a myth by a mythical God.
Then slowly came the big drops of rain. The lightning with the extra loud K-BOOM, followed by the monsoon.
They had a choice but because of unbelief they died.
Always remember Doctor, you also had a choice.
Old and tired Pascal's wager from the simpleton who can't prove his god.

Remember, you cannot threaten an atheist with your imagination.

I got it now, Atheism is lack of a belief in deities.
So is a bag of rocks.
Correct. The **base** state of being, is unbelief.

That is the foundation on which everyone starts.

Where you go from there? Is up to where you were **born** and how gullible you are.

Religion absolutely **requires** gullibility.

So let's say you're an atheist who believes evolution explains the origin of man. If you have no expertise in evolutionary biology where do you derive your "belief" and "confidence?"
Easy!

There are literally 1000's of resources that PROVE evolution to the curious.

I am so sorry you missed them all...

Again I'm asking, who came first, male or female? Regaurdless what science is involved, I would just love to have a real answer. Or did twins of the opposite sex hatch?
Are you also saying evolution is not involved in abiogenesis?
Both: sexual dimorphism stems from early hermaphrodites.

A lovely modern example is the lowly earthworm-- which is **both** male **and** female at the same time, but cannot self-fertilize.

Eventually sexual dimorphism came from that-- slowly over billions of generations.

I could be wrong but I think most Atheist are pro abortion.
It should be called pro murdering of infants.
The pro choice should be when it comes to prevention.
To abstain or use a condom? Naw that's too easy.
Just abort them when they are alive and healthy. Pro murder.
It would be nice if the religious folk would let the preventative methods (condoms) be distributed as they need to be. This is something that has been fought against way too hard, claiming that it promotes sex.

Teen pregnancy is way too high in many places.

There is a direct correlation between unwed mothers (teens especially) and fundamental religion.

It's a combination of factors: ignorance due to suppression of quality (accurate) sex education, suppression of contraceptives, and suppression of abortion rights.

Add those up? You get **more** unwanted pregnancies which are carried to term.

I have to agree with you that they be distributed upon request of the student. Perhaps the school nurse and Coaches distribute them. But they also need to have proper sex education on subject of unwanted pregnancies and disease prevention. Even the benefits of obtaining should be a part of sex education.

So sad.

Your attempt at "humor" always degrades into your own fetish/fantasy-land.

I always suspected you were a pedophile-- your post above, proves it.

You surprise me-- seriously.

I would have pegged you as one of the "keep'em ignorant" crowd-- who's kids end up pregnant at 2 times the national rate...

I would simply put a free dispenser in the school bathrooms myself... and each one comes with a simple set of instructions.

Seeing as how most Genuine Christians™ are afraid to discuss the issue frankly.

Oh for crying out loud Bob. This talkorgins.com site is an Atheist web site.

It’s not even a science university web. No wonder you can’t get anything right.

It's not a belief, it's logic. See it however you want to, but when you give someone the tools they need to prevent and "unwanted" and/or pregnancy that happens from irresponsible actions, then you are less likely to see these abortions....Or if they make adoption less expensive on the business end of things that would probably help as well. However, if you do not educate and provide the things needed to prevent, there will never be a change.
