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.

If you don't think that cause of death is related to gun control, then why did you bring it up in the first place?

Except, which you seem to have so quickly forgotten, it's not a "minor" percentage of deaths when you're dealing with people 44 and younger. It's one of the top causes of death.
Wrong.

According to the charts on this link, under "United States, by age group", firearm death is pretty much near the bottom of the "leading causes of death" under ANY age.....

When I was a teen, the guy remodeling my folks kitchen let me shoot his .44 Magnum.
When I was done getting knocked on my ass, he put some hollow points in and took down a tree with a 4" diameter trunk with one shot.
That's the COOL factor!

I don't know, you tell me.

Why is it so difficult for you gun-haters to admit that a gun CAN be a weapon or that a gun CAN kill?

Copying links from google and pasting them is unreliable as the displays are sometimes abbreviated (thus the "..."). Better to go to the page and copy the link from the IP box.
Thank you.

BUt I'm at work, my pc doesn't show an IP box.

A gun DOES not kill, the soft squidgy bit pulling the trigger is the murderer, not the tool

I have repeatedly offered evidence, you have repeatedly poo poo’d it, ignored it, tried (and failed) to talk it round, made excuses, attempted re-direction and outright lied.
If you really want me to re-state the sources of my evidence I will but I feel it will be a complete waste of time because you will go round and round again in the pathetic attempts of yours to discredit DOCUMENTED evidence based on nothing more than you personal belief.
"DOCUMENTED"?!?

LMAO!!

Do you consider posting on Topix to documenting?

No cherry picking....

The talking serpent was Satan, not simply a "talking snake" as the athitards want to make it out to seem.

More biblical interpretation? We know your make believe view of some parts of genesis from old and now it seems that we can add genesis 3 to that list

3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die

Never??? So tell me since when has the babble been so wrong in your eyes?

How about the talking donkey of Numbers 22:21-35

Listen butt breath - just because the babble is not written the way you want it to be written does not change the babble, it just means you are confused.

Satan is a wholly fictional character. Same goes for the rest of the Genesis 1-11.

"athitards" - christian standards are really slipping since i deconverted.

Oh, and ALL christians cherry pick. Its impossible not to do so, as the chaotic books of the bible contradict each other even in basic doctrines.
