Just assertions, where is the evidence supporting these? I know, there isn't any. The numbers show otherwise, and there is no connection between religion and suicide. Now, why don't you ever post any actual evidence when you claim to have it?
Here are a few links Kitty.

Now you say "The numbers show otherwise, and there is no connection between religion and suicide". So step up to the plate and show that evidence.

So you claim.

But it doesn't matter, since the human factor will be a problem God inspired or no.

Not just modern translations, ANY translation. And problem is no-one has access to the original anymore. All that's left is a scrap of cloth the size of your hand. Then add to that you're not able to read the original language anyway.

Hence why all you know is the modern version, complete with all its mistakes such as Adam and Eve, talking lizards and donkeys, plants before sun, global flood and flat square circular Earth.

Nonsense. Meat is good for you. Just remember to cook it properly and you should be fine. Also remember that eating too much of ANYTHING is never a good thing, plus also the same with drowning your meat in fat and oil obviously.

Memory is not the problem here. The fact is that ALL STD's are endemic to BOTH heterosexual and homosexual relationships, adulterous or not. Practising safe sex is the key. But the problem is that fundies are also anti-sex education and so do not teach about protection and promote abstinence only policies which have been demonstrated not to work.
I've been wanting to ask this question for a long time what are fundies?
and also my religion is not anti-sex. we do not beleive it is wrong. after all it is god who created male and female and told us to go out and "multiply" if you know what I mean.

Gravity (and concrete) challenged the structural integrity of my skull just yesterday.

But that's probably irrelevant.

Pffft! most vegetarians only last for a few years.

when are you refering to that we had fewer STDs? how does homosexuality cause STDs?

quite the fantasy world you have invented for yourself...

Why does it always go to religion? Is evolutionism a religion now or what? It's almost as if they are trying to disprove creation rather than teach science. I don't think it disproves creation at all...I mean, someone/thing had to create this "tree of life" or "common ape-like ancestor" right? Or at least create the elements that set things into motion. Nothing evolves from nothing. Yes, you can quote me on that

You all do know that Darwin was a Christian, right? He even strengthened his faith in God after his research because it only proved to him that we humans know absolutely nothing on the grandest scale.

Why don't you all just tell the real truth and admit that you have no idea about where we came from? What does evolution prove?? Anything at all other than, things change when they have to? DUH! You call that a theory?

in my history class we were watching this video about america (i think it was the 80s) in one part it said that is type of std (forgot which one) first began with homosexuals and transexuals. I did not invent it if you want to complain to someone blame the public school and history.
oh and the only ones that last a few years are the ones doing it wrong.

like the New testament is better? a savior that is a total copy from previous religious cults in just about every aspect of his life from the virgin birht to the resurrection?

funny how no one wrote about this god when he was alive. if they actually believed he was a god, or even capable of miracles, they would have wrote down every syllable he uttered, they would have saved his used tissues, they would have sold t-shirts with his picture on it....

none of this happened because they made up the fantastic events of his life from previous cult myths after he died...

I agree with "The Dude" on this. meat is good for you. Now you can call me an oddball but I don't and never have eaten fruit. Just don't like it. Vegetables other than potatoes and beans, maybe one serving a month. My diet is meat(any kind but liver), beans, potatoes, bread and pasta's. I am 48 years old been sick twice in the last 30 years (1993 pneumonia and 2004 ear infection).

As far as STD's (gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia) well if you look at this CDC link by you can see that teens and early 20's have the highest percent, I am guessing because they are more active and also it shows the older a person gets the less percent they make up. And I am also guessing that most of the cases have nothing to do with homosexuality and adultery.
