Please point out where God says go rape and murder.
"Like if you lied that you weren't hiding any Jews during the Holocaust... That is a violation of the big 10."
You do not know the book you're attacking. The Bible in whole is used for the Christian faith. Picking out one line or another is not how the Christian faith works. The over all meaning of the Bible honors someone risking their life to save another.( as in this case a totally innocent person who would be killed if revealed simply because of their faith )
Judges 21:10-24

But it doesn't matter. I was pointing out that christians are moral with or without the bible. You missed my point completely and went on the defensive.

I was pointing out that atheists aren't out being criminals like christians seem to think they should be without god. Humanists are out fighting for equal human rights. Our morals do not come from the bible but they do come from the same place. You can call it god if you want... Of course, however, I would disagree.

I think its human evolution. Like many non human animals, we naturally look after family, and help others in reciprocal relationships - I'll scratch your back, if you scratch mine.

They can't get that it's bad science that we would like to stop. As far as good science no problem. Just stop selling out the truth to keep your dreams alive.
Evolution has billions stuck into it trying to keep it a float. That ship is sinking and the sooner science jumps ship and abandons evolution the better off we all would be.
Not only do they not get it, but they promote BAD science.

For example, Kitten thinks law breaking scientists should go free. She tells us so in her post 9867 when she writes,“You only care about that law because it opposes scientific research. If it was say, a person who bombed an abortion clinic in the name of your religion, you wouldn't care, would you?”

So if some crackpot bombs an abortion clinic, that means fraudulent scientists should be ignored, excused, forgiven.

Hahahaha - that's atheist logic for you - LMAO.

You just posted another testament to the strength and reliability of science. See how effective science is as they weed out the fraudulent behaviour of others?
Like you, science and peer groups have failed us.

But there is still hope for science since the government and lawmakers are watching the peer review groups.

Unfortunately, that's the only assurance we have that science will have to kneel to authority and fall into line.

Correction:
Perhaps they realised that "love" is not consigning billions of people to everlasting pain.
I'm sure the Christians have realized that the atheists destroyed the property in dictating their godless beliefs, just as all readers can instantly see when reviewing the news story.

It's interesting that you would choose everlasting pain for yourself, and then complain about it. Whining is childish.

Science wins again.
You just don't get how this game is played, do you.
So it's okay with you that Judy “removed data”(stole data) from her employer? In your eyes she is honest? That's the kind of reputable science you like? You have confidence in dishonest scientists? That's the kind of morality and law breaking attitude that is prevalent among atheists and corrupt scientists, which is the very problem I've been bringing to the attention of the forum. I often enjoy seeing your posts since they prove my points so well. Thank you.

You don't stop anything.
Science takes care of itself.
Again, you made a good point: You can't stop bad science. But even though it's growing at an alarming rate, our government watchdogs keep fighting it every day. We all need to be aware of the catastrophic harm of fraudulent science.

I'm pretty sure the VAST MAJORITY of Christians, whatever their profession, are Pascal Wagerers whose religious convictions do not go beyond checking a box on some form or another. We do have that to be grateful for.
I was wondering where your link is that backs you up. It seems to be missing, lol.

How many Christians do you know personally that discuss their beliefs with you in detail so that you can decide what the “vast majority” of them believe? LOL

The majority of soldiers, policemen, firemen in America are Christians. Nothing will change that fact, so you are going to have to live with it, even though it's painful for you.

Basically, atheists don't have a voice. When they try to get one, they damage their cause because they emit hate and foul smelling gasses, lol.

The American public at large isn't interested in the atheist view – praise God.

Rabbi David Wolpe writes about angry little atheists in this link:

Angry atheists don't even find solace from scientists, as explained by the Rabbi in #2.

Pity – atheists just like living angry little lives, lol.

Read about poor Metatrix.

Metatrix is an unhappy, isolated atheist.

Metatrix is a “reluctant” atheist – which is understandable.

Probably a regretful atheist as well; a death fearing atheist too.

Metatrix isn't doing very well.

Can you help poor Metatrix?

Freedom of religion is guaranteed by the Constitution, so why is there so much Christian discrimination in America?

Prayer removed from schools, people “moving away” from God, as the godless try to dictate their beliefs, and so on.....

Christians need to take a stronger stand, run for political office; quash the voices of the godless minorities who have no right to dictate their beliefs.

The included link reports on a Christian couple in Great Britain who can't be foster parents because they would teach morals to their children.

Atheists and homosexuals are against morals, and try to dictate to Christians what Christians can teach their children.

Failure would be when fraudulent behaviour is not found out. The very fact that you are able to find examples of bad science attests to the success of science as a whole.

Come back when your religious scrolls make precise statements about untested phenomena/objects in the natural world.

I think his comments on hell, are just to highlight the absurdity and childishness of this silly belief. No sane rational person believes in hell.

At least in the old testament there is no afterlife. Yahweh may be a psychotic deliquent, but at least when you die you are off the hook.

But the "loving" Jesus wants to torture the majority of mankind for eternity. That absurd notion is not love in my book.

Au contraire. In the last religion surveys in both the US and UK the number of "Nones" is growing rapidly. When you take atheists, agnostics and others outside of religion, the nones are the fastest growing group.

You pal (KJV) knows the answer to this.

Seeing as he's not around just now, I'll answer it for him.

It's because the founding fathers of the USA were atheists.
