Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Take an ethics class sometime. Don't they still have community colleges in Riverside?
Riverside City College offers this course:

PHI-10 - Introduction to Philosophy 3 units

Prerequisite: None.
A survey and exploration of significant questions in the Western
philosophical tradition. Questions are drawn from the various
branches of philosophy: metaphysics, theory of knowledge, ethics,
aesthetics, political philosophy and/or philosophy of religion.

The Redneck will have to inquire whether the course is open to high school dropouts.

If you are trying to validate abortions because of miscarriages then that is akin to validating murder because people die naturally. A natural miscarriage does not validate an elective abortion which is really a last ditch effort at birth control. The best thing for a man to do is not get women pregnant out of wedlock. It is not in their best interest. The ancients knew that 4000 years ago. You know the ones you practically describe as sub human.
You oppose slavery really only as depicted in the Bible yet are pro abortion. Even late term? That is a peaceful coexistence of logical contradiction.
Yes, I am opposed to late term slavery.

How do you figure that? And BTW, you discredit yourself just fine. I'm just trying to show you how you do that. You don't seem very interested in changing your ways to heed what Jesus said either. Fake Christian.

So slavery was OK because of war and debt?
Wow.
Since we still have war and debt today, are you saying slavery should be reintroduced?

Islam? It hardly qualifies in historical time or character to OT Law.
However you are avoiding the immoral abuse of women by atheists in the present time and your part, while castigating an ancient time that even Jews today don't practice, and certainly not Christians.
Smile.
Seriously, where most people have a brain, do you have a smile?

The awl through the ear was just a piercing, and it was only done if the slave decided to stay. In other words, the slave got to choose. In no other culture at the time was that even allowed.
Sure he decided to stay, the slave owner most likely held the slaves wife and children as hostages. "just a piercing" Do you know how big an awl can be? Any idea of the excruciating pain involved? And the humiliation of being "marked" and "PROPERTY?"

Keep trying to rationalize slavery, "In no other culture at that time was that even allowed." So that makes it OK???? WTF is wrong with you!!!!

Owning another human being was wrong 2000 years ago, its was wrong 100 years ago, its wrong NOW, and it will ALWAYS BE WRONG!!!!

I know. Which is why your previous comment claiming that miscarriages were outside of divine intention was laughably false. But thanks for owning up to that.

Tell that to a rape victim. Or a woman who's health was threatened by their pregnancy.

Not terribly compassionate for a Christian, are you?

I never said I condoned all late-term abortions, but what do you do when a woman's life is threatened late in her pregnancy? Don't you think that decision should be up to her and her doctor, and not you and I?

And why does your supposedly benevolent God allow such situations to occur in the first place?

Every pregnant woman's health is threatened by their pregnancy. Every single one.

"Pregnancy" is an odd way to describe a human being.

Do you call yourself a "delivery"? Morons.

Seriously, this makes so much sense that I can't see how anyone could argue against it.
Well, validly argue against it anyway.

Are you kidding me? Wow. Yes it certainly is immoral to treat people as property. Much less condoning beating them to death.
Is it immoral to wish a religious group of people dead?

Anybody with a slight amount of ethics knows how evil slavery was - and still is. Esp when you hear about some of the practices the slaves used to be subjected to!
Oh, but it's in the Bible.
The so called ethics on display here by people that often say 'no god needed' is something to see. How long before one wishes us dead (again) or equates Christians to a stain on society? The love and tolerance is awesome!

Of course it is. Even if that group promotes a book which promotes slavery as a morally valid concept.
