I didn't need a sky-daddy to give my life purpose; I did that myself. We decide for ourselves what matters and what does not. We have secular laws to protect our secular rights. Your god is unnecessary to that equation.

If there is no God then we are all just happenstance living for a short time on the planet. Does it really matter what we do or how we live?
Since I do believe in God, I know that I am here in some small way to contribute to His plan. Whether it is someting on a direct and personal level or even if it is indirectly through a family line of someone else.
I think it is important as a wife and mother to set good examples of faith, ethics and morals in business and in my personal life.
If I believed there was no God I probably wouldn't care so much.
People who only believe that they live, eat and die, to me, are sad.

Without God, as soon as you die your life is over and you will be meaningless. Only your children will remember you for a while.
You acyually don't get to decide anything important like when you are born, whether or not you are healthy, whether or not you can have children, when you die or how long you are remembered.
So because you believe in 'God' you got to decide when to be born? Face it, babe, your beliefs don't affect that one iota. And if your purpose in life is to be remembered, you have already failed. You're a footnote at best.

Of course we get to decide whether or not we are healthy - eat right, exercise, take care of yourself. You'll have better health that way.

People decide whether or not to have children every hour of every day. Good grief - what have we been talking about for the last 200 pages of this forum? People also regularly make the decision to check out at their own convenience.

Maybe YOU are willing to leave it entirely up to chance, but this is 2013. Get a clue.

Yes it has but where do you think that thought process came from? What has inspired man to be kind to others and other species? A rare thing in the animal world outside of immediate family. Why do you think it is important to have laws which usually reflect a fairness to others?
Do you think you haven't been influenced by people of faith through the ages. Can you think of one totally atheist culture that operates like ours which was established mostly by Christians escaping England?
Not sure about that - wolves take care of their packs and howl when one goes missing. Sometimes they invite a new wolf into the pack.

Are there no Christians in England? That's news to me. Pretty sure that the members of Church of England consider themselves to be Christians. Lots and lots of blood has been and will be shed in the name of religion.

I do not know of any atheist cultures, do you?

When you die, your life is over regardless. Whether you are remembered or not depends on what you mdo; atheists like marx and ayn rand are certainly remembered as are socrates, gandhi, mao, and many others who did not believe in your god.

I assure you, I can decide if I become a parent or not. As for how long anyone is remembered, WHO CARES? Enjoy me while I'm here; when I'm gone, life will go on without me. Just like everyone else.

Can't you read? I said that we all have little control over the big things in life.

'Healthy' people drop dead or get killed everyday. If a woman's body can't conceive, she won't get pregnant.

Maybe you are the one person who's life has gone exactally the way you planned with no twists or turns. Mine hasn't and I don't think most have which is why I don't believe it was chance.

Ha! I just love when people expect Christians or religious to be picture perfect. Are you? Then shut up. A person who believes and wants to worship their God is not perfect. How stupid to think they should be angels with no flaws. Do you people think that you're all perfect? WHO is the hypocrite? You are. You're too self centered to see it.

Belief that you can't get pregnant on the first time was pretty common when rose (and I) were young...I think that's what president lincoln said...:)

Oth, you were smart enough to know that sexual intercourse could lead to pregnancy. Bing! We have a winner. Once is all it takes.
Oh but please, let's just keep talking AO in the classrooms. That's been hugely (and I do mean hugely) successful in Texas.

What do you think Socrates meant by this?

Shortly before his final breath, Socrates described his death as a release of the soul from the body.

I agree with you 100%, but no matter who agrees or disagrees, when a woman is already pregnant, and decides she doesn't want to continue, she must either kill herself, or kill the life growing within her.:(
Again your approval and opinion. Like mine is not necessary when a woman is making a decision in regards to pregnancy.

Laws evolve in social groups, and our species is just better at writing them down. How many laws force people to be kind? Most are just written to help people get along.

Gee, our country was inspired by democracy and a republican form of government, both of which were created by non-christian civilizations. Every civilization and group influences later groups.

When is the last time you saw one invite a lamb into the pack.

Who said that there were no Christians in England? Didn't you study world history or even American history in school?

PSSTT Ink.. Over here.. Socrates was Pagan and most likely agnostic.

You using Socrates as an example. Would be the same as if I were to use Martin Luther in defense of Judaism.. Off the mark and well, just a tad stupid...

I don't expect christians to be perfect, I expect them to shut the hell up when they feel the urge to criticize others for perceived imperfections. I also expect them to at least nominally observe their own bible, where the guy they named themselves after tells them not to judge others.
