I heard Darwin had a woman read from the bible outside his window in his final days.
Why would he have done that?
Did he really believe what he convinced so many others to believe?
I highly doubt it...

It's a scarey moment when you got to die alone...it's a very lonely moment...

And instictively he was probablly seeking out love and assurance from a higher 'being'...a supernatural entity, that was offering it to him...

It also amazes me how some souls don't think it possible for 'god' to be here, but yet they're here...conscious and aware, and able to create...

But yet trillions of years before their existance...this could not have ever occured before...

How one could be so close minded, just to prooves ones disdain for Christanity, is beyond me...

Still doesn't prove your Christian God my friend.

No, we have quotes from Edison...he was a total atheists, unlike Einstein who was a deist or mild agnostic. Look him up and read about him.

Your last point is just projection.

There have been things created by other animals, one of the oldest forms of architecture are nests, birds commonly build these. Some animals exhibit artistic capabilities as well.

Of course it took a while for us to evolve, there had to be enough mutations for something with a more selfish gene to alter the environment around them instead of just live in it.

To your god thing, where is evidence that such exists? I'm curious to actually have some evidence supporting one to study and analyze, so far no one has given any. It would be nice to have more than blind assertions from believers, so we could stop calling you delusional.

What makes you think you could find God when you haven't really found yourself?

How's your deity doing on those?
MY deity? I think NOT!

Edison seems to have had his moment of grandstanding on the subject.

And Einstein.

And a bunch of other scientists who don't seem to think that the unknown can be left unknown in the sight of their brilliance!

I don't do authority. Even the absurd ones.

It is a cold world and people turn to things like addictive substances and sexual sins to try and comfort themselves, the end is desperation and a worse state. Jesus can save anyone if they will repent.

Most people who turn to addiction are religious, in the US they are almost all christian.

As for your "sexual sins," what are you referring to? Since sin is a religious construct with no basis in reality, mind you.

I don't care anymore either, if they don't reference it then it's just a lie until they do, as far as I am concerned.

The USSC, in several cases, has stated that marriage is a basic human right.

They interpret it as a *contractual* arrangement, which has ramifications beyond "finance".

Because heaven help us if same-sex couples are granted all of the exact same rights and responsibilities of marriage enjoyed by opposite-sex couples, right?

Who knew that the marriage penalty was a "bribe"?
<quoted text>
Fairness is important to me, which is why I won't settle for anything less than marriage law to apply to same-sex couples in the same way as it does for opposite-sex couples. We don't need some second-class institution of "civil union".
<quoted text>
If you're claiming that the next-of-kin, such as a spouse, cannot donate the deceased spouse's organs without pre-authorization, you would be sadly mistaken. Unless the deceased has left documentation refusing donation, then the absence of any such documentation means that the spouse or other next-of-kin makes the decision.
OK, 99 years, not 100. Good to know that you have a clear bead on the important things in life!

"We don't need.."

Understood. Every other statement of your character is invalidated now. YOU, that magical megaphone of perspective, YOU're dictating to 98 percent what the 2 percent will accept.

That is why I don't need YOU and yours in building consensus. I'm glad to have had this chance to demonstrate what it costs to those who would consider it.

Now, go worry about important it is to be able to decide how to carve up the remains of your sex partner. Have a nice day!

It amazes me that people do not understand why Jesus came and went to the cross. He came to save us because we are all sick and in need of a physician. We have all sinned, and those who say they have never sinned are liars. Our very nature is offensive to God, There are some sins that are more repulsive to our Creator than others and yes God does get angry because of wickedness. We are required to turn from wrongdoings and if we don't, we are in danger of Hell fire.

Yes, we know your beliefs are self degrading and horrible, can you provide evidence that they are based on fact?

People didn't want to hear the truth in the time of Jesus and this world is just as cold and corrupt today. If a man who claims to be a follower of Jesus can not tell people there is a real Hell where there is flames and torment, then he fears men more than God. The name of Jesus can bring us up out of those flames.

Then how would you explain the reference to "... infinite intelligence"?
