And who do you believe created AIDS?
Honey you can’t just claim your god created the good bits and expect everyone you don’t like to create the bad bits, that puts them on an equal creation footing to your god and I am sure you would not want that. For your god to have been responsible for creation then he must by definition have created AIDS, childhood leukaemia, cancer, malaria and so much more.
How do you know that you will never contract AIDS through your own choice. I know you are great at giving out Americanisms so please accept this bit of British wisdom in return – A standing prick has no conscience
Why do godbots always assume that threats of hell are going to effect anyone other then there own conscience?
Why bother asking a question if you're just rant on and on like you already know the answer?

I believe that God created AIDS.

God doesn't transmit it, people do.

Stupid, immoral people.

Now, revise your post.

I sure can blame God.
GFY!
Nope.

You can blame the sexually immoral for knowingly spreading the virus.

Then you can blame the medical industry that messed up.

God did neither of those.

So you can't blame the God you claim not to believe exists...

We should check with New Atheist guru, Sam Harris.

He might suggest murdering all HIV-positive people. He suggested murdering religious people for their thoughts, before any actions. The threat of an HIV carrier should be at least as dangerous.

What about it Sam? Thumbs up or down?

<quoted text> So you are effectually saying it is fine to dismiss accurate information because of the source. In other words the source does matter even if the information is correct. We have noticed it is your stock and trade to dismiss anything you do not agree with as ''faith based'' even though we have responded to this irrational tactic of yours, yet you continue to spam this response. What you are revealing here is your prejudice in that you make certain fixed assumptions about ''Christian apologetics'' sites as unconvincing. Truth or falsehood takes a back seat to being convinced. In other words the point can be both true and unconvincing to you and would be dismissed not because of the former but because of the latter which means you hold truth in low regard.
A witness in a court proceeding is caught lying while giving testimony. Should/would you give his remaining testimony still given the same level of 'trust' he may have had prior to getting caught lying?... or would you shade everything else he had to say based on the fact the he is known to lie?

It is disturbing, how many people **die** because they have faith in bullshyt, instead of putting their trust in actual reality.

Message to Ar aR: From now on, I will be typing your name as such: Ar aR
You are welcome to emulate me in this respect as well. BTW, I'm flattered in advance. You're almost like my 6th younger sibling. Okay, but they have the ability to utilize logic and reason and quit the emulation thing around ten(10) years old. So you'd be like an infant 6th sibling.
LOL!

How very true.
Indeed.

The problem with a faith-based outlook?

Is that the faithist can *literally* believe in magical comets, or flying carpets, or even more ludicrous shyt, such as water-walking or infinite torture*.

I much prefer a *reality* based outlook-- the Universe is quite grand enough for me anyway.

* infinite torture? Wait.. what? Isn't that a contradiction? The whole *point* of torture, is that it will stop, or that it may stop. Infinite torture simply becomes routine... and no longer torture.

these people seriously *are* idiots.

That reminds me of the book April Fools' Day, about a haemophiliac boy who caught HIV from a transfusion back in the 80s, when it was a death sentence.

Obviously it was medically acquired AIDS - and he was straight. That didn't stop him from being called names, even by some hospital staff. Not to mention being preached at by visiting fundies. A very sad book.
Was the boy's name Ryan? I think I saw a film about him.

Yes, the way he was abused by True Believers™ and Genuine Christians™ was nothing short of monstrous.

<quoted text>You embrace the smell of ozone, the monotonous click tracts, the hard edges sounds of electronically generated sounds---I prefer the emotional connections between human performers and their listeners, the undulating time feel, the melodies never player the same way twice, the ever so slight intonation differences between instruments that bring life to the music.
The innovative musician is the one who cherishes what has been done, knows the history, respects the tradition, and then in his own way, finds the means to move the art form forward.
I don't have an 8 track, I consume my music, for the most part, live.
Yes, to each his own, good luck in your endeavors.
There *is* a certain breathlessness, a certain vive about **live** music, I agree.

It has a kind of energy, a kind of living connection between the crowd, and the music-makers, that is .... almost magic. <heh> <ironic, yes? Laffin>

Even recorded live music has a kind of quality that you simply cannot get in the studio.

I first noticed this, when comparing The Rolling Stones live records with their stuidio songs of the same titles. The live records had more energy, more .. something-hard-to-define.

So yeah, I have to agree with your sentiment, here.

Alas, life gets in my way, so I mostly listen to MP3 stuff these days.

Oh well...
