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.

How terrible!
Isn't it lucky that some lovely European Xians came to abuse them further? The Spaniards with their Inquisition, then the English with their smallpox. Oh, then they took their lands.\
At least they gave them Xian morals, must be worth something.

Wow, there were no atheists back then...

Now, every tribe has Christian organizations voluntarily working in them year after year.

And where are the atheists?

You know what they say about assume.

If slavery isn't wrong then nothing is wrong. Your book is filled with slavery and how to treat slaves - case closed.

Slavery is the consequence of failing to maintain personal responsibility. That is why there is more slavery and tyranny today than ever before.

Homosexuality is not a sin, it is a sexual birth defect.
A dyke is one step from being transgendered, and a lesbian attracted to a dyke is one step from being heterosexual. This exposes a spectrum of sexual orientation aberration in LGBTs.
However, the inherent harm, unhealthiness and demeaning nature of anal sex IS a sin. It is a violation of nature and should be a violation of law.
Reinstate sodomy laws? Dream on...

Only a blonde would believe silly stupid can even masquerade as intelligence.
My brother-in-laws' father died taking a volunteer crew of men up to Alaska to work in remote Indian settlements. There were NO atheists doing any such thing. This happens in every Indian tribe, every year.
Leaves 'rational atheist' oxymorons like you stuck on stupid, doesn't it?

Yes your book is filled with history and a very horrendous history it is.

I don't care about superstition and religion is nothing but superstition so you are correct - I don't care.

The Bible is an imperfect book containing flaws of human origin and due to the overwhelming amount of scientific errors the book possesses, you should take comfort in deciding that there was no divine inspiration or intervention rather human imagination.

Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body.--Deuteronomy 28:18

Whatever your book teaches you it isn't for me and it isn't for any rational human being.

I don't think it's possible to raise a family in heaven is it? Can I share the 72 virgins with the Islam martyrs that are already there? Can I marry for the first time in heaven?
Is there a really good Kosher deli available?

How can a 33 year old man, leave his two year old in a hot car while he sat in air conditioning office sexting 16 year olds?

The case in Georgia enrages me. This is what happens when people don’t have a moral compass and do whatever they want.

There’s no fear of God and no fear of judgment. I hope Georgians do the right thing to this narcissistic accused murder.

This actually adds credibility to the Bible and God ..how else could a mere myth raise such ire in the likes of you ...

and item 2 , you claim the Bible is horrendous ..Are you claiming that there is right and wrong , and we humans do know the difference ..?

Why , would you make such a bold statement , if morality was not in fact objective , rather than subjective ...Hmmm..

You can not assert something is evil , and in the same breath evil does not exist ...

What do you follow then?

Mary may have been any age. I don't think there is any age limit set by your god.
