I really don't have the faith to believe in that fairy tale that a puddle of crud showed up and then all life forms along with intelligent DNA evolved into life today.

What Holidays do you celebrate?
Just out of curiosity....
Did you know that most western holidays are of Pagan origin, as opposed to religious (or Christian) origin? Christmas and Easter, for example, have more to do with Paganism than Christianity, as currently celebrated. You might find the origins of these holidays interesting if you research them. The religious aspects came "later". Surprisingly, the origins of Halloween are more religious than Christmas and Easter.

A medical test being developed by Kuwait will be used to 'detect' homosexuals and prevent them from entering the country – or any of the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC), according to a Kuwaiti government official.

GCC member countries – Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – already deem homosexual acts unlawful.

This controversial stance is being toughened, with members of the LGBT community stopped at the border and banned from entering the country, according to Yousouf Mindkar, the director of public health at the Kuwaiti health ministry.

It’s illegal to be gay in 78 countries, with lesbianism banned in 49. Five countries mete out the death penalty to gay people – Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen and Mauritania.

But yet idiots like Duh and the atheist from Methdesto spend time after time posting hate and blame towards Christians living here in a country where gay is legal. They support Obama who supports and gives money to some of these countries.

Flounders always make a mess out of anything they touch, like a voting process and procedure's.

So goes the fools calling themselves, GOP, Republican and Tea Party member's.

In all due respect;
If a man's anus doesn't come with a clitoris, how does a gay man, at the receiving role, find pleasure in sexual intercourse?
The prostate is easily stimulated from inside. You can learn more either via Google or an old stand-by book "The Joy of Gay Sex". It might be informative if you are curious and have questions.

I agree that this is the correct step, however I also feel it is ridiculous to allow people to vote for something and then completely ignore it. The people should have more of a voice than a government. People want to be bigots and vote against homosexual marriage, so be it. The people don't want homosexual marriage, that's the way it should be until more people stop being bigots. Too bad, it's a democracy. So even though I support same sex marriage, it's complete crap that the people aren't being listened to.

I find protecting marriage, families and children, and speaking against abusive sexual behavior a legitimate and righteous cause.
You do realize that posting on Topix accomplishes none of those goals, correct?

Cheetos and soda are highly processed, empty calories that are devoid of any nutritional value and should be avoided at all cost. Please consider lean protein sources, limited quantities of complex carbohydrates, healthy fats such as nuts and olive oil, and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables for good health!

Proverbs 8:22-31 (NJB)
22 ‘Yahweh created me, first-fruits of his fashioning, before the oldest of his works.
23 From everlasting, I was firmly set, from the beginning, before the earth came into being.
24 The deep was not, when I was born, nor were the springs with their abounding waters.
25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I came to birth;
26 before he had made the earth, the countryside, and the first elements of the world.
27 When he fixed the heavens firm, I was there, when he drew a circle on the surface of the deep,
28 when he thickened the clouds above, when the sources of the deep began to swell,
29 when he assigned the sea its boundaries —and the waters will not encroach on the shore— when he traced the foundations of the earth,
30 I was beside the master craftsman, delighting him day after day, ever at play in his presence,
31 at play everywhere on his earth, delighting to be with the children of men.

Where does one thought in this passage eliminate evolution?

How can you judge things of faith, when the ability to deal with facts evades you?
