They have to be young and defenseless, but the death penalty for murderers in prison is cruel and unusual punishment.
Cruel? That is debatable. Unusual? Hardly. It used to be extremely common. It is even called for in the Bible.

Personally I am not in favor of it because if you execute the wrong person there is no taking it back. But if there was a way of being one hundred percent sure that a person did kill someone else, coldly and cruelly I would not be opposed to it at all.

It is far better to follow one's own morals than to follow those handed to them by another human. You are correct, I did choose my own morals, but you are so lazy you follow some morals another human decided on instead of actually thinking about things yourself. Lazy bum.

The Incans thought it was right, and blessed, to kill and eat any strangers for most of their history, to them, it was not wrong.

That's about as wrong as you can be.
Rape resulting in a pregnancy that results in a child .....
Is criminal genes being passed on. Not necessarily stronger better or anything other than genes passed due to a criminal act.

Genocide is murder another criminal act, natural selection encompasses far more reasons than a criminal act that forces it's selection, which BTW is FORCED SELECTION. Or an unnatural selection.

<quoted text>how would you know? since you openly lie without regret, and do so repeatedly so you have no thought to stop this action, you certainly don't fall into that christian category you claim.

in fact, didn't you claim to not follow any religion? another lie? a lie about your own faith?

is anything you say true at all? even one thing?
I don't belong to any organized religion. But I follow God and his word. Do you have issues with that?

You must be Catholic.
As I recall, the Bible doesn't talk about the seven deadly sins.
Seven deadly sins. Ever hear of Hollywood?

It was a pretty good movie.

Didn't you know that if an atheist disagrees with something they think it's officially debunked. LOL
They also believe in the Big Three.
(Myths: Big Bang, the goo pool life starter, evolution of goo to space explores)
no, when they show you verifiable facts that you cannot counter, it is debunked, as has happened with all your silly bible stories and religious cult myths.

Halfwit.

AIDS is a zoonotic virus, almost certainly transmitted originally my handling bush meat. Specifically, monkey meat.

>>>Just because a person doesn't understand a supreme God - doesn't mean He doesn't exist.

When did anyone on this thread ever say God doesn't exist?
All I say is that you are claiming that God exists, so I challenge you to prove it.

Show me where anyone else said that God DOESN'T exist, and I will challenge that person to prove it.

>>>Just as I can't "understand" the concept of a gabazillion dollars in my hand. Does that mean it doesn't exist? Nope - it just means "I" can't grasp the enormity of it.

One thing I could never understand:
People accredit God with infinite wisdom, and they admit that God is invisible, but they decide which religion God belongs to.
Just because a religion makes the most sense to you, how does that prove that it makes the most sense to God?

>>>God isn't complicated - and His rules for us are very simple. We either obey them - or we don't - that is each of our own choice to make.

Nothing is complicated if you are a victim of the Dunning-Kruger effect.

I'm reminded of the camp song "Tell me why the stars do shine, Tell me why the ivy twines, Tell me why the sky's so blue." Why, God did it, of course!

>>>However - as when we were children, and our parents set out rules for us, we understood that if those rules were broken, there would be consequences to our choices.

Yes, just like some other parents have told their children to throw rotten eggs and rotten tomatos at Jews.

>>>What is so hard to understand that about God - our Heavenly Father.

A lot of things.
For a starter, why would an all-powerful and all-wise God expect to make his existence known to us, and then allow countless religions to develop, and leave us to decide which is the right religion, and with nothing to go on but luck?

>>>Would you raise your kids with no rules or boundries - just turn 'em loose and tell them to do what feels good?

No. Why? Is that the only alternative to raising children on religion and mythology?
And is that what Evolutionists advocate?
Then how do you explain animal behavior studies which show animal society to be every bit as orderly as ours--and conducted, furthermore, by noted Evolutionist scientists such as Konrad Lorenz and Irenaus Eibl-Eibesfeldt?

>>>So why do you guys expect God to do that.

When did anyone on this thread expect God to raise us with no rules or boundaries?
What I don't understand is why we need God's guidance when we established an orderly society millions of years before organized religion was established.
"When did anyone on this thread ever say God doesn't exist?"

Really? You can read can't you?

Wow talk about denial. Oh never mind you're an atheist that's kind of stupidity is to be expected.

How do you know it wasn't women?

There have been some pretty sick women over the ages. And it could have been from a bite that involved no sex at all.

And Mary, if you had AIDS, unless you are a miracle of medicine you have AiDS.

your god is proven myth...as have the other religious cult gods.

there maybe a real god out there, but as yet there is not one shred of evidence for such.

another example of you not understanding what people say...

most likely it was just from the blood of an infected animal... very popular meat in that area.

most epidemiologists think that is how it got into the human bloodstream...
