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.

<quoted text>I really hope you are a troll.
While I shouldn't even dignify you with a response, I will tell you that your outright hatred for gay people is disgusting, and your contempt for atheists is equally repulsive. Didn't your god tell you to judge not? 50 years ago people like you were using similar arguments against the civil rights movement. And no, I don't want everyone in the world to be an atheist, I just want our government to be as secular as it was intended to be. We are not a theocracy, or at least we should not be. The beliefs of the majority should not be forced on the minority. If I were ever to entertain the idea of running for public office, I should not have to pretend that I love some imaginary fairy in the sky.
As for the last part, about the age of the earth, I don't even know what to say to that. Your ignorance, no, your stupidity, is at a level that I didn't think was possible. I don't even need to address your ridiculous claim about supernovas (which actually occur once every 50 years) to prove you wrong. We know the speed of light, and we can see objects that are much, much farther away than 7k light years. Or are you on of those shining lights of intelligence that thinks the speed of light has slowed down?
Gate Keeper is a troll. Same poster as Sir Doc 1-1000, Martina Naratilova and various other takes on Happy Lesbo.

He's a miserable wretch who hates life so much, he comes on here to share his misery. His deep and abiding concerns are about how pedophilia shaped his life - I keep telling him, it wasn't his fault.

Sad, sad person.

<quoted text>Replace every mention of homosexuals with "black people, the black agenda, etc," and perhaps you will gain some insight into what a backwards bigot you are.
I'm not holding my breath, though.
Can we replace those words with "white trash" or "white ghost" instead?

He's my wittle boi and I'm very pwoud of him. When he was neutered, he stopped whining after 4 weeks. He stopped licking after 12 weeks. He stopped trying to hump the neighbor's Bull Mastiff after the third attempt and 77 stitches.

Hims my wittle boi.

Not only God, but the Christian God, and not the other god's they have to choose from.
Gays will be in Hell after their death. That's an important thing to remember.

I'm not tolerant of them , as you might can tell. Neither is God.

He forgives them if they repent, but He will throw them into Hell if they just keep on doing what they are doing.

Hope you are well!
You have topless weather ladies?
I gotta move to the US
We should, shouldn't we? But in the US, no way.

In this country they are trying to mandate that all children must be born wearing clothing.

Manufacturers are working on bath clothing, that allows the wearer to clean themselves as well as if they were nude.

Breast feeding already is considered lewd and lascivious behavior and will very soon be considered as sexual abuse of a child.

Vaginal delivery of infants will soon be illegal.

As long as the religitatards have a voice here, these absolutely normal activities, will remain in the nasty sinful (and therefore must be curtailed) corner.

I’m not sure the general public would agree with you. No need for it to be on primetime TV, have you considered the children?
If you want naked then there are plenty of sites on the internet.
And can you really say that you would take any notice of the news?
Nudity is normal. Nudity is not sexual. Sex is sexual.

Righto! That must be why Hugh Hefner is so rich...because nudity isn't remotely sexual to men.

NO really? What was the context of that post? If you are referring to the one by me then it should be easy to figure out, for at the end of the comment that I made about "god" and storms, I said that god must be afraid of storms.
Way to pay attention.

Just let him know that there is no such thing as hell not even in the Bible.
http://www.tentmaker.org/books/GatesOfHell.ht...
"As we can see, after 350 years of saying Jonah was in "hell," the New King James finally admitted he wasn't there after all. He was in Sheol, like everyone else who has died. Many people have come out of the grave. The Bible is full of examples"

Here's a simple observation for you. You are either a muslim or you wish your were. You are a bigot; you hate all christians and anyone who does not love the muslims. muslims and christians are the same. Some are horrible people and some not some, not so much.
Here’s another simple observation, you guess a lot.

You guess all this because I expect people to be responsible for their own actions? How clever of you, I didn’t realise that was an anti christian stance.

If I wanted to be a Muslim I could very easily convert to become a Muslim. In the UK (as I believe there is in the US) there is ample opportunity and freedom of religion is important, I suppose more to you than me because it is written into the US constitution.

I personally don’t hold with the idea of gods and prophets. I am more one for logic and fact so no religion would suit me. I have faith in people not groups and I do not hate christians, I dislike some christians, usually the more hard line funnymentalists and blood lust freaks. That does not limit itself to any particular religion though, I dislike funnymentalism, radicalisation and violence in anyone. If in your opinion that denotes bigotry then so be it. I don’t actually care much for your opinion anyway.

That is what I have been saying all along, yes the majority are the same, they just want to get on with their lives without some pratt sticking a gun up there butts and pulling the trigger.

It seems that the main difference between us is that I expect people to be responsible for their own actions, you expect everyone to be responsible except Americans
