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.

Why?

Your bible says your god's track record is that he killed every baby not on the ark.

No, but religitards like you usually do.

Still, since there are far more miscarriages than abortions your god is still by far the biggest abortionist of all. But you're OK with that.

Which might explain why you commend a bible that says he drowned every baby not on the ark.

Why aren't you thinking?

Xe is a total tool, isn't xe?

UK media gets it wrong, too. They talk about the prediction that the Y chromosome will diminish without explaining that the genes that contribute to the differences will most likely still be present elsewhere.

You know what baffles me, Thinking? Kimare, or whatever her name is, doesn't seem to know what "gender means." She seems to think it means "sex" as in male-female.
She would probably be surprised to hear that, almost as soon as multicellular life started, the sexes differentiated.
Woohooo, sex!
Don't tell her. She wouldn't like that.

That's simply not true. Lots of cultures do not have evil spirits to believe in. The Yanomami don't. What you would recognize as evil for them would be sorcery, cast by other humans. No bad spirit like the one in your mythology.

All you are doing here is projecting your belief system onto others.

Gender is not sex. Gender is what culture attaches to sex. Gender is done differently in different cultures. Native American cultures had three and sometimes four genders.

The one your from only has 2. And your culture separates sexuality from gender. Not all cultures are like that.

Only because your deity doesn't exist. None of us live in a universe created by a perfect, all knowing deity - hence, we have choice.

That's hardly a description of the Big Bang - it's a mythology to teach to simpletons.

<quoted text>
There's a lot of misunderstanding in media when it comes to genetics. I have troubles believing the whole "the y-chromosome will disappear" hypothesis. It's a ratchet theory - that, in the absence of duplication, genes that get hit by mutation simply get destroyed. As you say, that leaves out a fair amount of what we know about how genes work.

All Christians at the time of Newton "knew" the universe was stable, and created. Now they all switched their understanding of the universe to pretend it's like our contemporary science, totally neglecting the massive changes in thinking they had to make to do so.

Yeah, it probably sounds trite to you, and maybe even a little insulting, but I wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to post that.
If. Hitler accepted Jebus would he be also blameless and forgiven?

'Religitards'? How old are you?

You deny equating eggs with babies, and then turn around and do it again.

I already answered the question about babies.. When a culture reaches the depravity that those did in Noah's time, and the Canaanites in Exodus, God destroys the whole culture.

The Bible makes it clear that sin impacts all those around the guilty, including the innocent.

However, you have no excuse for the murder of babies by abortion.

Hypocrite.
