LOL That isn't saying anything about morals.
WOW your so right. The first paragraph says " it was found that greater MORAL objections to suicide and lower aggression level in religiously affiliated subjects may function as protective factors against suicide attempts".

You should try reading it before you belittle it. It does say "moral objections" not "objections from morons" like you. LMAO.

And this proves my point. I am not a creationists but yet you want to argue with me about the bible. Did something happen in your life that you blame God for so that is where all your hatred of him comes from? IF so,,, get over it!! If it just that your an evolutionists then you might try promoting that more and projecting about God less if you want to make a point to them.
Well that's logical. What is the title of the thread and what is the presumption of Creationism solely based upon? Seems to me Woodtick was agreeing with you on the validity of the Bible. The argument stems comes from you apparently being "tolerant" of teaching ignorance to school children. I do not find that a position of higher moral ground.
Religion is faith based, it doesn't make any difference how much evidence and logic you put forth, the devout will skip over it and trot out some deluded crackpot from the CARM, the Discovery Institute or AIG who might happen to have letters behind his name.

The fact that suicide is considered a sin and a one-way ticket to hell might have something to do with it.
This just further proves that Christian theology is invalid. You can still go to heaven if you murder someone but taking your own life is unforgiveable? That makes absolutely no sense and I believe the opposite. Murder is one of the deadly sins but suicide is not an eternal death sentence.

If someone wants to live their life believing in something that is not true that is their choice. Not up to me, you or anyone to tell them they are stupid and wrong. Like you said no one is going to change the opinion of someone who is unwilling to be reasonable.

The problem is that you saying it, or it saying it has to do with morals , doesn't make it have anything to do with morals.
It only means you and it are saying it does.

I'm saying it doesn't have anything to do with morals.

"The Lord is my Rock, my strength and my song" Supertramp is the Rock that begat me "Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful" Deut. 32:18. There is also an album, Shaved Fish by John Lennon and a song, Maggie Mae by Rod Stewart. John Lennon is the king of Rock and roll and the voice from heaven said "Wake up Maggie" and then the song played on the radio. That was on Mothers Day, Sunday morning May 13, 1984.

<quoted text>Nope, it is commanded in the bible that anyone accused of being a "witch," another made up thing, is to be killed. Most of your kind claimed that meant burning them alive, men, women, and children, and they did just that during the Inquisition and Salem witch hunts, probably many more throughout history.
You like people that burn their kids alive.

I have no problem following Gods word to stone these people. Although I would prefer to burn them alive as they did to the children.

2 Kings 21:6 ESV

And he burned his son as an offering and used fortune-telling and omens and dealt with mediums and with necromancers. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger.

2Chronicles 33:6 ESV

And he burned his sons as an offering in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, and used fortune-telling and omens and sorcery, and dealt with mediums and with necromancers. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger.

Deuteronomy 18:10 ESV

There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer

So why then do you have issues against Stoning parents that burnt their children alive in worshiping Satan?

The Witches burnt children alive so they were stoned. Not the other way around Dolt.
