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

Creationism is definitely a mental illness. How else could anyone be convinced to ignore evidence and facts or apply some thinking to the most preposterous of claims?

Maybe it's wishful thinking.
I don't like cauliflower but I don't deny its existence.
Same goes for Evolution. It's too dispassionate for me to like it, but I accept it is true.

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.
Care to point out where I said that it was ok that she removed data?

I'll wait.

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.
Context, you took it out of context for your own agenda, how dishonest ...

... though even out of context it makes you look worse. You just provided solid evidence you have zero standards, conscience, and empathy. No one was killed for those stem cells, lots of people were murdered for your god, come to terms.

Something wrong with Leviticus 14?
Did God tell you that some thing was inaccurate with that scripture?
Or are you so out of touch with the religion and the Bible of Christianity that you don't know what this scripture means?

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

The OT god is a murdering maniac, rampaging through its pages killing as a first resort.

Come the NT, we have the same god but he only kills (as far as I'm aware) three people.

However, eternal torture of the vast majority of humanity is the act of a lunatic sadist.

You're right.

Not only that but it also says that ALL liars will be thrown into teh lake of fire to burn.

This includes KJV and Dim, both of whom have been caught out by their lies.

Hi K.

OFF-TOPIC...

but its back. An Independent newspaper article claims that David Cameron was critical of its inaccuracies, but perhaps that rather misses the point of it? The Independent also claim a link between this series and 'the BBC sitcom, The Thick of It'. I haven't seen The Thick of It - yet.

Hi Ed

Thanks for the heads up.

I'll give it a go although I'm always dubious when UK Gold resurrect an old series - I seem to remember them bringing Red Dwarf back but it didn't do much for me.

So you do recognize science has failed us since I found and posted many of the failures.

Thank you for that admission.

Maybe you're making some slow progress.

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.
Hint: Bats are not birds and Pi is not three.
Sorry, Khatru, I posted a reply to you without putting your email on top first. Perhaps it's because your a "none", lol.

Like Kitten, you have a lot of catching up to do on your Bible studies.

What an embarrassment you are to yourself.
