I think gay pedophiles using the Church as a cover is despicable.
Then why do you keep doing it?

Yet... you continue to practice your pedophilia anyway...

Oh?
Reduce the complexity of a mousetrap, what do you have?
A spring--- quite useful for many things besides a mousetrap. A clothes pin, or a hinge on a screen door.

A wire bail. Useful as a handle for, say, a bucket (same principle, different size)

A small flat board-- many uses for this: A doorstop, a shingle, a paddle, a step, a...

The trigger mechanism? I cannot think (right away) of a use for that, but I bet there is somewhere.

In short?

I can easily deconstruct your mousetrap into smaller, still-useful pieces.

I can even take it to the raw materials, without form--**STILL** useful. A tree, some iron ore... the uses are endless, here.

You **ARE** some special kind of stupid.

Beavers design the dam, dipshit. They build it with intent and purpose.
False.

They lack the intelligence to have design. They operate on PURE INSTINCT.

There is **some** problem solving here, but in a strictly LIMITED way.

You are some special kind of stupid, aren't you?

Then I suppose you're too damn stupid to know the difference between women and a woman.
If you hit ONE woman? You are apt to hit ANY woman.

In short?

YOU ADMIT THAT YOU HIT WOMEN.

There is no way for you to apologize your way out of this one-- you are a woman-hitter.

You admitted you are.

Yes, but not in the way Rancid Redneck said.
He stated specifically, that beaver dams were **designed**, implying his idiotic god had something to do with it (and them).
Now you’ve done it, reverting to dam stories.

Really? That's it? That's the one and only type of slavery?
Pretty much.

You can change the fine details?

BUT.

You cannot get away from the FACT THAT A HUMAN BEING IS REDUCED TO PROPERTY, AND IS OWNED BY ANOTHER HUMAN.

That is the basic definition of "slavery", stupid.

And it is EVIL, in EVERY CASE--NO MATTER WHAT.

Just as your god is evil, no matter how much you try to spin it.

The care of our mentally ill is deplorable in the USA.
I would like to believe that "ObamaCare" will fix it but I have no such delusions. All "ObamaCare" will do id make more money for insurance companies and possibly reduce the quality of health care for everyone.

<quoted text> 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.
In that case, Spartacus was a much braver soul than Paul.

Thanks Rosa. It's important to remember that slavery exists in both the OT and NT, and to consequently reject both as immoral.
Yes, slavery is neither moral nor ethical. Nor was it EVER.

As to Intelligent Design being religion, even ID maven William Dembski admits to it...as long as he is talking to a religious crowd.

Quote

In December 2007 Dembski told Focus on the Family, "I believe God created the world for a purpose. The Designer of intelligent design is, ultimately, the Christian God."
