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.

Something I didnít know about Bill Cosby the comedian/actor. He was a Navy Corpsman and spent 4 years working with war veterans in physical therapy. A lot of these veterans had some very serious wounds and missing limbs.

I just want to say this about military medics. I think thatís the most prestigious position any military man/woman can hold. A lot can be said about heroes but military medics are super heroes in my view. Bill would help you with your left leg. I would too if there was really a need for me to.

Who among the rich are being infected?
The rich live in a world they can be more selective. Plus they tend to put in more hours making money and less on frequent sex than someone living in the ghetto. They are insulated from the masses.
Just who of, and how, are the rich getting infected? That should be very revealing.
Magic Johnson, Rock Hudson, and Arthur Ash were rich

Only Rock was gay

They got it thru unprotected sex or like Ash got it thru a blood transfusion

What are you basing you statement on that those in the ghetto must go around having much more unprotected sex because they have less money?

I'm gonna let you in on a secret and that is women are attracted to money. Women can have sex with just about anybody if they are good looking. They generally don't choose poor guys. Even women that are poor themselves. And most men actually have to put some time into it unless they are really rich. Charley Sheen still preferred the escorts and despite their 'clean bill of health' it can take 7-10 years for the Aids virus to even show up

I meant to read all the posts I missed and then start replying but felt like replying now.

And who is it you think gay people are infecting? Other gay people. I would think that would make you happy. And if you are worried about the spread, why fight gay secular marriage that encourages monogamy? It's not like it is being done as a religious sacrament.

I think the real reason people oppose gay marriage is not because they care about the proud history of the institution of marriage. Where 14 year girls were sold off or where even today people can order their bride thru the mail or win one as a contestant on a reality show or marry for money or insurance or citizenship or convenience and that half end in divorce. It is because they are afraid it will look more 'normal' and they think people can be socially convinced to be gay.

All I have to say to that is those people must have some internal struggle going on. Nobody could socialize me into being gay. I was naturally very attracted to women and no amount of talking could change that.

I used to say that if my son was gay, I'd disown him. Those were my words and I'll own up to them.
Fortunately, I have since changed my stance on that. If my son came out and told me that he's gay, I certainly wouldn't like it, I might not talk to him for a time, but I'd still love him.
I've been open and honest about my opinion of homosexuality. I can absolutely accept gays in our culture and even in my life, but I will never consider them as normal.
And because of that outlook, the Topix Atheist! labels me a homophobe.
OK, so let's just say you're one f*cked up dude.

Surely you don't have a quarrel with that assessment.

like you liars "haven't" got any evidence for god.
Well, it is tough using a couple of really small chapters describing creation to defend God, but let me give it a try.

~Verse one is the first declaration of the Big Bang theory.

~Created out of the dust of the earth can easily be equated to life springing from amino acids in the earth.

~That earliest human life was originally genderless like Adam is incredibly profound.

~ That life evolved from simple life forms to genders only adds to the profundity. Even more interesting, That separation is reunited in the marriage of a man and woman! How is that for natural roots portrayed even today in marriage???

But I like to use a little known passage about creation that some of the most famous Christian scientists in history used to inspire their ventures into the unknown;

Proverbs 8:22-31 (NASB)
22 "The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His way, Before His works of old.
23 "From everlasting I was established, From the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth.
24 "When there were no depths I was brought forth, When there were no springs abounding with water.
25 "Before the mountains were settled, Before the hills I was brought forth;
26 While He had not yet made the earth and the fields, Nor the first dust of the world.
27 "When He established the heavens, I was there, When He inscribed a circle on the face of the deep,
28 When He made firm the skies above, When the springs of the deep became fixed,
29 When He set for the sea its boundary So that the water would not transgress His command, When He marked out the foundations of the earth;
30 Then I was beside Him, as a master workman; And I was daily His delight, Rejoicing always before Him,
31 Rejoicing in the world, His earth, And having my delight in the sons of men.

Gosh, science just got there with these insights, and here it was, right in front of our eyes! For at least 5000 years!!!

Smile.

Jesus says Christians must follow the laws of the Levites:

"For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 5:20

Seems RR wants everyone to go to Hell with him.

You aren't "trained" to have that belief, but you can be trained toward it. It is going to click or it won't.
The higher force or forces do not owe you an afterlife, but they may appreciate self starters. You are just machinery now. That machinery produced a "soul" that will never "die". But it can be incorporated into a larger existence, or it can be discarded and exist by itself doing nothing. Don't expect to escape "existing" just by dying.
You are being winnowed.
Please go on about the physics and social aspects, Buck and the topix folk have been very edifying.

We both hold a moral value that says it's wrong to rape children.
We apprehend it as an objective moral truth - or at least I do.
What is there to suggest it is not an absolute moral truth? Regardless of what anyone says about that particular moral value, we apprehend it as absolute.
Why would we not? Why would we not think it applies to all possible people, places, and times?
I realize it is even more offensive than raping an adult and you are making a point but the same point should be able to be made for rape in general. Yet there have even been laws allowing for it like Droit de seigneur.

To me, it shouldn't matter what culture or time in history, rape should always be wrong. But I am sure most individuals feel a lot of their morals should always apply

To me the true test of a moral absolute is that all cultures have always observed it

Yet even today:

"In 2001, it was reported by the South African Police Service that children are the victims of 41 percent of all rapes reported in the country."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_violence_...

That is why i think there are very few moral absolutes. Just because somewhere at some time, certain societies had no problem with it

Because if something is defined as a moral absolute simply by complaining it should be immoral anywhere, then how would that be any different than most of their moral views?

You don't have to be obsessed over me just because i pointed out you had no friends. I actually didn't even know it extended to your real life until you brought it up by saying it is lonely at the top. I just meant on Topix.

Do you think it is your unhealthy obsessions with people that contributes to why you have no friends? I never post to you first yet for going on years now you are still regularly posting to me. Or is it you are lonely like you said and you just need any attention, bad or good will do?

Go forth and make some friends Bongo. I think it would do you a world of good

RR said he doesn't cherry pick verses or post verses out of context.

He also claims he isn't a liar.

He doesn't seem to understand that he contradicts himself constantly.
