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.

Are you sure that's far enough away for you?
Any further and I would have take a body shot instead of a head shot.

Bravery has nothing to do with it.

Lots.
I think I've had some form of cyber sex with HL.
That counts, right?
Yes...I would say that counts as a sin...isn't there something about coveting what you don't have.

It does not however count as premarital sex between heterosexuals...I am fairly sure that HL identifies as a lesbian.

If I am wrong about HL...are you saying that cyber sex is not a sin based on biblical teaching?

No decoder ring sorry, just a plaque that says you have accepted reason and logic and have now become extremely skeptical of unproven claims, congratulations, your childish beliefs have vanished.
Aww.... I wanted a ring.

Lose childish beliefs? Like believing life can come from non-life without any evidence to support that belief? Will I become skeptical of that claim?

Will I be able to fervently and passionately be able to know that gods don't exist, also without evidence to support it?

Will I start discussing, non-stop, about other people's beliefs I claim to not believe in?

Man, I can't wait. Send the plaque.

OK, that's good of you to admit.
I just couldn't understand why you were defending an error for so long.

I said nothing about whether or not it's a sin.

Neither did you in your original question. I think you just wanted to bring up the topic that gays are talked about much more than straights. Yes/no?

Can't prove it. It's just a hunch.
I also theorize Eckhart Tolle is Jesus reincarnated. Also just a hunch.
I think it's Chris Tolles.

Yes...you did bring up sin RR..

You made a statement that ...

"I'm wondering why people think that Christians focus so much attention on one sin when we don't. "

http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TUGI0DV...

In that post you were saying that gays think that Christians focus on homosexuality. I pointed out that rarely do you "read"..."hear " Christians discussing premarital sex between heterosexuals. Which...if I remember correctly most Christians believe...or at least the Bible teaches...it is a sin.
