So you are stating child molestation is absolutely wrong, I assume you are an atheist, that being the case, upon what absolute moral standard are you making this claim?
So you are stating child molestation is not wrong. I assume you are a Christian. That being the case, upon what absolute moral standard are you making your claim?

No one can rule out God at all.
I rule out god with the same ease as vampires and leprechauns.

Also with the same ease I rule out your critical thinking ability.

Jesus was a homosexual. I believe the Bible story implies that, therefore, it's fact.

My bad, I didn't mean you personally. I worded that wrong.
I meant one that a person can't perform.
If you can't perform it naturally, it isn't natural.
Sex can be supernatural. I often speak in tongues.

I have answered your questions repeatedly, you just don't like the answers.
Why is cowardice an absolute moral judgement by the way.
Do you think you need to practice your atheism a little bit more, you keep dropping the mask and revealing you don't really believe in atheism...
You've not answered the questions, bore.

Anyone who has followed this discussion knows this.

Carry on - the more you post, the more pathetic you become.

PS - one doesn't "practice" atheism and one doesn't "believe in" atheism. All atheism is is the lack of a belief in deities.

We can mark that as #4,769 on the list of things you don't quite understand.

How can the Golden Rule predate God.
And please account for its status as the golden rule in the atheistic universe which has no absolute moral rules?
You guys surrender atheism so easily...
Are you on meth?

Your responses, while tedious, offer a sort of bizarre fascination in that they in no way reflect the reality or content of the post to which you are replying.

Jesus Christ existed.
Virtually all scholars of antiquity agree to that.
I'll take their word for it, not yours.
You're of no help.
Wrong, there are a number of biblical scholars who doubt the existence of Jesus, would you like be to show you some of them?

1. Moral standards that are absolutely binding.
2. Without them there are no morals, you cannot tell how long a piece of string is if you do not have a ruler to measure it with.
3. First 5 commandments are absolute moral standards, that should keep you busy.
4. Absolute moral standards require an absolute moral transcendent source. Only Christianity reveals that absolute moral source because it and it alone deals with the sin problem.
You're ful of shit on all 4.

1.) This is NOT an answer to his question, he asked you to DEFINE moral standards.

2.) Approximately 289,000 years of mankind surviving without your Gods moral standards proves you wrong........you lose again numbnuts

3.) The first three commandments deal with your God misplaced sense of vanity, not morality........you lose again f**cknuts.

4.) There is no evidence for a transcendent source. Judaism deals with sin, not just Christians, so do Mormons, you're either lying or just plain stupid, I pick door number two!!

I have known some psychologists that claim Paul was likely gay. Some of the things he wrote point toward homosexual desire. Then there are his rants against the gay that point to self loathing, a common thing with gays in an anti-gay society.

I find that people like mtimber have very little imagination. Their minds seem to be so literal that they find it impossible to think outside the box.

My psychiatrist tried to claim I was a sociopath until I showed up at his house and confronted him while he was showering with a lock of his sleeping daughter's hair.

I have come to agree with you. It is too late for several of these posters. And not only can they not get their minds around the ideas presented, they can't even listen. They are so focused on their "argument" that they don't hear your response. And on top of that, they have to lie to advance their agenda. It's pathetic.
We can put that to good use in exactly the way that you and many others have already done. Had you known before your Topix experience how many were this extremely affected? I hadn't, and I don't suppose too many other people did either. Some of us have been arguing that faith acts like a damaging mental illness. The worst of these people are as far removed from our common reality as a psychotic with the prognosis for recovery is nearly zero, and they are not scarce.

Sure that's offensive to Christians. But if is true, with so much at stake, the possibility of being offensive can't be allowed to be an obstacle to making the case.

Wrong cokbreath, I have TRUST in abiogenesis based on research rooted in the naturalistic realm. Perhaps you should learn the definition of Gullibility,.Easily persuaded, credulous. Like you, easily persuaded that God has ams and hands, lungs and a mouth, all needed to blow on his scoop of dirt. How do come by this information on the physical makeup for your god thing? You've been easily persuaded, you are credulous, of course this makes you.........wait for it..........friggin gullible!!!!!

Are there any real atheists in this thread?
That I site your holy book as immoral is a fact, why does that observation negate my Atheism?
