There is one point in your post I must disagree with. Those nuts are not all Americans. In fact some countries have so many of these nuts that they have started to export them to us. Australia and New Zealand instantly come to mind ;^)
Yeah, but it's okay. The fundies had a big argument and the Ozzies said you could KEEP Kenny Ham.

YAY!!!

<quoted text>God does not condone slavery, people owned them anyway, he does not condone being gay, stealing,etc but folks do it anyway. Those folks are called law breakers.
Hey Petey, I linked to scripture of God condoning slavery. So are you lying now or were you lying when you said you read the Bible?

How come you fundies ALWAYS have to lie?

<quoted text>He did not and does not condone adultery and idolatry, he gave rules concerning that. Paul addressed the church at Corinth of the sins they engaged in and also commended the ones who did do those things and turned from them when they became christians.
Yes, He gave rules against idolatry. And lying.

Then you fundies decided to completely ignore it by worshipping a book about God instead of God and continued to lie your azzes off.(shrug)

And CBOW forgets that God was clearly pro-slavery in the Old Testament and not anti-slavery in the New Testament. At best you could say that God in the New Testament was slavery neutral, and that would be stretching it a bit. Jesus told slaves to serve their masters. I believe it was Paul that sent a slave back to his master.
There is a passage in the New Testament where Jesus speaks to a slave and tells him to work hard for his master and something else...not to run away...honor his master....I forget. long story short, the NT also sucks up to slavers.

On your post who's to say that a god didn't make all these things in the first place and his/ hers plan was for this to happen in the long run..
Maybe it did, maybe it didn't. The fundies claim it did but can't back it up. Then they illegally force it into public schools.

Zigzactly. You can't invalidate invisible Jewish magic. For the same reason you can't invalidate Cosmic Sheep.

Elohim, The book of Morman is a sham. Joseph Smith was no more a prophet than Bozo the Clown. Luke 16:16 plainly states the law and the prophets were until John and since him the kindom of God is preached. John died in the first century,which would be about 1700 years before Joseph Smith was even thought of.Readm Matt chap 14 and it tells of JOhn's death.
They are all fairy tales.

I never stated that 6000 YO figure, thatís yours. For those who believe in Biblical truth, if you extrapolate the births and ages given in Genesis that figure comes up. If you don't believe what the Bible teaches, why believe in that specific age unless you believe that the Bible is true? It begs the question! As far as your reaction to Christ's warning about what little children should be taught, now you know, those are His words, not mine.
Other short age chronometers based on uniform conditions are supported in science, more so than long age dating methods I feel, such as those using isotopes of lead. A question on those; if leads origin is radioactive then deteriorates to pure lead, why isn't the earth completely radioactive?- most of Missouri and nearby states should be hot, as well as other huge portions of the earth, and no life could exist. You can't have it both ways, you hang on long age 1/2 life based on measured rates, but refuse to reverse the same number to look into the past of this old earth you embrace!
Sure, if you wanna misrepresent reality:

Another accident needed to allow life to be self-created? or all the elements of lead that just happen to be in safe proportions when the earth was formed, more questions for your side and fewer accident-related answers.

It's called mutation. Your incredulity still isn't a valid objection.

Actually it's been long established. So far you have not been able to address the evidence.

Just as long as invisible Jewmagic is ruled IN.

Without it, we CAN in fact rule it out no problem.(shrug)

English is unique to England.

Sin became part of humanity by their own choosing, not God's. It's called free will. If your kid swears, does that mean you condone it? Well, maybe you do.....
You don't have free will. God deliberately put the tree within easy reach to the extremely naive and also put in an evil talking lizard to talk them into it. Plus he already knew it was gonna happen.

This was before all the incest, slavery, rape and genocide. Then at the end he makes slaves of all fundies and burns anyone with any sense of compassion.

That's one messed up myth you have there.
