<quoted text>So, Dear Leader was guilty of Presentism. Who's running the show?
The Romans were running the show 2000 years ago in that area and they did not take kindly to anti slavery sentiment. That sort of writing could be construed as encouraging slave revolt. Sedition. Romans did not take kindly to that sort of thing. They had a habit of going in and killing everybody. That is how they handled things. Paul et all knew all that and wrote accordingly. Historical illiterates need to learn the times before they go making all sorts of ignorant assumptions.

I have empathy for the victims of indoctrination.
For the apologists, NONE

You don't consider the apologists to also be "victims of indoctrination"?

Oh yeah, you Topix Atheists! are so fucking intelligent.
You think E=MC2 disproves God.
You think you can remove a piece of a mousetrap and it's still a mousetrap.
You think the Pope is an atheist.
You think all people are atheists.
You think dinosaurs had no DNA.
You claim to know the Bible better than Christians, but screw up the understanding of every single verse.
You claim to be atheists but claim to know that there is no God.
You claim to be agnostic but claim to know there is no God.
You have a hard time understanding the meanings of very basic words and post things like "define faith".
Buck, what am I forgetting here?

2. Because they are a different person. Sheez.
3. If it were unnecessary, you would understand that people should be treated how they want to be treated, not like you want to be treated.
4. Because they might not want to be treated the way you do. Christianity really is the religion of aem, Me, Me!
5. Why would an omnipotent need obedience and why do you act so unlike your Vhrost?
LOL

Yeah because it's way more practical to ask someone before every action "is this what you would want" instead of just using common sense and realizing there is no need to alter "do unto others as you would have them do unto you"

And the underlying principle is even more basic common sense

You really are a dumbass

I am relegated you to the "Aura Mytha" category of too stupid to take seriously. You are just here to troll and don't care or know how stupid and unnecessary half the arguments you are trying to have really are

I may occasionally laughter at you but snugging other than that would be a waste of time. You hang in there insect. Some day you may feel like a man in real life

<quoted text>No, but whatever fantasy you require to not become a mass murderer works for me.
You don't need to fear I'll murder you, Eye Spec.

The most I would do is pull your shorts up into your crack, bend you over, then bounce you up and down with one arm by your shorts with your head hitting the floor until your underwear gives away and breaks. I call it the "Yo-Yo Treatment".

By the way, in prison, the murderers are the most trustworthy guys. Most are one-time offenders where somebody pissed them off real bad. The career petty crooks are the ones you have to watch.

And 90% of all fights are over what's on TV. I busted a guy's teeth out once 'cause he switched it from Andy Griffith.

Hey, I just saw the Bulletproof Popemobile at the Mercedes museum. Your faithless Pope, scion of an international crime syndicate trading the bodies of young boys for their sick, twisted, Christian pleasure.

WOW

That one must have really hit the mark!

I'm not a felon btw

And I didn't threaten you. Maybe you just got scared? You didn't catch a glimpse of your shadow did you?

LOL

I take you are one of those 'men' where if something went down the girl would have to protect you! I'm just kidding, I know you wouldn't be with a girl! No wonder why you desperately need the Internet to validate your 'manhood'. Poor little Ippsy seems worked up. Just promise you won't close your eyes and try to sissy slap me while crying!

I really don't care how you define either word, you're wrong on both counts.
An atheist disbelieves, or lacks belief, in ALL deities.
A theist believes in at least one deity.
There is NO definition of theist the way you describe it.
OK, so I cannot say that I know for a fact that there are no deities anywhere in the universe, but I don't believe in any deities because so far I have not been presented with convincing evidence of any.

Does that make me an atheist or an agnostic?

That's all I can think of right now. But I'm sure the list will grow.
Hey, I thought of something else the Redneck left out, as you know.

Again: He left out that he's an ignorant, uneducated loser.
