Here's the truth baby,
X = Ecstasy
As in the following from http://www.drugs.he alth
Cracked teeth through clenching and grinding
High blood pressure
Possible memory and attention impairment
Lethargy
Decreased emotional control
Severe depression
Possible nerve cell damage
Taking ecstasy in a hot or humid environment, like a dance party or nightclub, can cause dehydration and raise the body’s temperature to dangerous levels. This increases the risk of the body heating up to levels that cause organs to fail, breakdown and eventually cause the heart to stop.
There is also a risk of serotonin syndrome or toxicity, which is an excess of the neurotransmitter serotonin (brain chemical) typically caused from mixing ecstasy with various, but not all, antidepressants or simply taking an overdose. The symptoms include:
agitation
confusion
headache
tachycardia – a rapid heart beat that greater than 100 beats per minute
hypertension (high blood pressure)
hyperpyrexia – an abnormally high fever
muscle twitches
coma
death.

I worked in a morgue. I'm well versed on death.

On a spiritual level, I base the term on the effect of the Fall on our physical being. Our sexual makeup is certainly not immune. In fact, I would speculate that we all display some measure of sexual defect. I certainly do.
I understand we are uncomfortable with the term defect. Especially in relation to sexual orientation and identity in this period of time where political correctness overrules reality. I have a tendency to use a verbal bat to break through the crust of those dangerous lies.
You're an idiot.

Nuff said.

I can't believe people need to take a drug like that just to "party".
I knew this guy in construction that had an ecstasy-fueled weekend with two whores. On Monday he felt the need to brag all about it, said that he danced and screwed all weekend long.
Sounds great, huh?
Nope. He had no skin left on his dick, he fucked it all off. He was dead tired and greatly dehydrated. He was incoherent in his speaking, we wouldn't let him work, he was too much of a danger to us in the state he was in. He had to leave work, go to the ER and was out of commission for a few weeks while his pee-pee healed.
Two whats?

What state was he in?

His pee-pee?

YOU claimed the Bible is a baseless fiction book. I'm simply asking you to explain the circumstances surrounding a specific event recorded in it. The account claims a extra terrestrial visitor, which I accurately note.

Sadly, no, there are zero contemporaneous accounts of a magical Christ and even fewer (duh, magic) of an itinerant Jewish traitor named Jesus.

This has been described ad nauseum on this thread. Send us your Jav-You-R's.

Gay marrage does not require permanence. A marrage contract can have an expiration date, or an easy opt-out clause.
Nor does gay marrage require sexual exclusivity. In fact, it unconstitutionally restricts freedom.
Marriage is for life, because it connects the mother and father to their children.
Marriage is also sexually exclusive so children can be raised by their mother and father.
Ss marrage doesn't require children, therefor it needs neither.
I simply note the historical function of marriage which distinguishes it from marrage and point out the change that occurred with no-fault divorce (children are not considered in divorce), and abortion (children are murdered for convenience). Hence the divorce and childless rate today.
In marrage, children are not required (or possible). However, there are still mothers and fathers committed and monogamous for the sake of their children. Marriage.

What animal on this planet is not sentient?

If stars and humans are made of the same goodies, why aren't stars sentient?

I don't know why you're on the floor, because I never said that all living things are sentient. I didn't say that and I certainly didn't imply it.

You actually think like the ancients who believed that living things were made of some special material that was different than the material of non living stuff.

That has long been disproven.

The atoms heavier than hydrogen, helium and lithium in your body were ALL formed in stars. It's what stars do.

You seem to think that things with the same atoms are the same. Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide have the same atoms. Carbon and oxygen. They are both very different gasses. Water is on atom of oxygen and 2 atoms of hydrogen. It is necessary for life as we know it. Hydrogen peroxide is 2 atoms of hydrogen and 2 atoms of oxygen. It is extremely corrosive and would kill you in a heartbeat if you drank it.

I take it your GED didn't include chemistry.

The rabbis kept meticulous records, too. No mohel noted that they lopped off the rumpled foreskin of a baby so important that three hippie kings smoked frankincense and snorted myrrh in his honor.

The Egyptians kept meticulous records yet didn't note ant floods while they were building pyramids.

The Chinese kept meticulous records yet none of them drowned, either. The dynasties present a continuous record.

But, we'll keep teaching the feel-good story of global genocide to children using toy boats and stuffed animals.

A Fairy Story.

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, in a place far, far away there was a council. Kings and priests got together and fought for days over a compilation of books that was causing much dissension in the land and threatening their power. They placed these books in a room upon a pedestal. They locked the room. In the morning, they entered the room and, magically, some fairy knocked the lion's share of the books to the ground, leaving only four atop the plinth. There was so much celebration that, after a night long festival of drinking and rape, they even figured out a way to appease the polytheists with the triune godhead. Now, even more superstitious clowns would tithe! Eureka.

Another Fairy Story

Kimare pays Number 4 to number 2 on Eagle 12's moobs and films it for posterity.
