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.

Well geez.
Your awesome googling abilities clearly mean you understand Scripture better than I.
But I will agree with you one thing, the KJV isn't a reliable translation.
Oh, sorry. Buck doesn't denigrate my use of links. He just ignores them.

Maybe he hasn't figured out if you click on the blue text it will present a different web page.

Yes. The Bible's instructions of sexual immorality covers it all.
LOL.

But the Bible's prohibitions against multiple fabrics don't apply at all any more?

And when the Ten Commandments says "Thou shalt not kill", why doesn't that cover it all. Why do so many theists consider war and the death penalty AOK? Shouldn't "Thou shalt not kill" cover those as well?

I've always wondered about the "virgins" part. Shouldn't they want 72 highly experienced women instead?

The Alien was protected by his force field, Moses used the tablets that the 10 commandments were written on as a shield. Thank Crom for those stone tablets, or Moses wouldn't have been around to oversee the rape of all those thousands of virgins that God ordered.
Um, I don't think the Jews would be around. No other culture has maintained identity as long, and with such distinction.

Ah...right, RR. And I suppose you can spout all the different Bible translations off the top of your head and not make a single mistake.
Google is your friend.
This might help.

I had to inform Ar Ar he was a Protestant Christian. The discussion went on over numerous posts - pages - with him denying he was a Protestant.

I threw a red herring out there for ya because the conversation was going nowhere fast.
You have your beliefs and I have mine.
It's incredibly unlikely that either will change.
Well that may be, but for myself, I'm open to any and all fact-based information, and I'm highly skeptical of dogma and ideology. In that light, my beliefs have changed considerably over the last 10 years.

All I can say is this - if you haven't read your Bible yet (and I seriously doubt you have), for heaven's sake don't start now. It'll change everything.

"Poorly mimic"? "Clearly inferior" according to whom?
Seems to me, this is just your prejudice talking.
Do you even realize this is the same sort of talk about African Americans that came out of the Jim Crow South?
Don't bail on me again with ad homoan attacks and scoffing masquerading as intelligence.

~The result of a duplicate gender relationship is not distinct from the union of diverse genders?

~The intimate expression of oneness is not poorly mimicked in anal abuse?

~The barren desolation of a ss couple is not inferior to the fruit a marriage produces?

That's just a start of simple obvious facts.

SMile.

For what it's worth, RR, I think some posters here are a little rough on you. Your opinions are just as valid as theirs or mine. I seldom agree with your opinions but that's OK. I must admit that there are times when I wish I was normal. Those times are rare. For the most part, I'm OK with what and who I am. That's what counts, right?

Not to Christians, no.

That's a Levitical law written for the ancient Israelites in order to prevent them from engaging fertility cult practices of the Canaanites.

It does not pertain to Christians.
And when the Ten Commandments says "Thou shalt not kill", why doesn't that cover it all.
Why did you say the KJV is a bad translation then turn around and quote it?
Why do so many theists consider war and the death penalty AOK? Shouldn't "Thou shalt not kill" cover those as well?


It's "thou shalt not murder", not "kill".

According to the Bible, marriage is between one man and 700 wives and 300 concubines.
Solomon must have been continuously exhausted.
And one has to wonder what all those wives and concubines were doing to relieve sexual tension while Solomon was busy elsewhere...which would have been almost all the time.
But then, does anyone recall the Bible prohibiting women lying with women?
Polygamy is hardly supported in the Bible. Solomon is a perfect example, as the Bible notes.

There is not one example of polygamy in the Bible that does not express serious complications.

The Bible virtually begins with God's design for marriage. Jesus repeats it, and so does Paul.

Why does a butch lesbian dress and act like a man to attract another lesbian?

Ah...then you agree with my statement the "Jesus made the laws obsolete". So why did you say you DISAGREED with that statement?
And if the old laws don't apply anymore, why are you on a rant against homosexuals?

Am I on a rant "against" homosexuals?!

It's located in the box in the far right under "religion."
It says RELIGION --NONE the (atheist) simply because winkipedia has not found a way to denote someone without religion as being anything other than an Atheist which is simple not true. You cannot have a God and still NOT be considered an Atheist. Would you classify Jainism or Taoism as being Atheist? Both of these disciplines have NO God. It is totally possible to have a religion without God, in fact it is incorrect to call either of these disciplines a religion, since the very definition of religion includes the belief in and the worship of a superhuman controlling power. So simply because Kim has no religion does not automatically make him an Atheist.

Now, how is Kim feeding his uncle to a pack of dogs any different from God feeding a group of teenagers to some bears?
