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.

Yeah. Like you will go to Hell for wearing cotton and polyester at the same time. Or for eating shrimp. Or eating a cheeseburger. God has some really weird rules, and most Christians just ignore them.
I didn't know they had polyester in Bible times.

Just give it time, there will be someone else than Ar Ar wants to "side man hug" in a really intimate way that will remove the Buck cologne Ar Ar has been wearing.

He'll eventually return to his regular old, racist, misogynistic and doltish ways.

Good on them for pushing back, the days of religious, abusive bullies are coming to an end.
Slowly but surely. I say that is a wonderful thing.
Are you familiar with the case study on Sybil Dorsett?
She developed a rather severe case of multi personality disorder aka paranoid schizophrenia, possibly exacerbated by an abusive christian mother and later helped by a Doctor, of the non religious kind.
Her father said things like "you can't see a Doctor Sybil, you know the church doesn't approve of Doctors of the mind".
You and those like you remind me of Sybil's parents.
Her mother called her a demon whilst tying her up and kicking the crap out of her, sometimes whilst singing xmas songs, when Sybil was five years old.
Do you know how many billions of people have been hurt by christian delusions?
Do you have any idea at all?
Don't worry, you will, you cannot silence us with your clown act.
I think you might be in a little too close with Sybil, what with what your stepdad and mom did to you.

Does that story ring a personal bell for you? I think it does. I think maybe the psychotic abuse your mom put on you and your "real" dad's not willing to help you has made a person that hates all of Christianity for the acts of just a few.

That ain't right.

Do you have multiple personalities, too?

""We must exterminate these people, root and branch… We can’t permit such danger to the country; the homosexuals must be entirely eliminated.” Heydrich Himmler 1938
Such a good and righteous Christian!
You are a liar. And you are a fool.

Himmler's hate of homosexuals was NOT from adherence to Christianity, BUT FROM HIS HATE OF IT.

Himmler, like Hitler, hated Christianity. How could he tolerate a religion that made a Jew into a God?

Heinrich Himmler: A Life
-By Peter Longerich

"Christianity seemed to him so dangerous because its sexual morality stood in oppostion the the biological revolution he planned, and because the principle of Christian mercy contradicted his demand for unwavering severity in dealing with subhumans (Jews)."

" ...blamed the homosexual male order of the Catholic Church and the prudery rooted in his own Catholic uprbringing for his own delayed sexual development..."

He identified the Catholic priesthood with homosexuality. He hated both.

Again, you are a fool.

Not so much wrong as very simplistic. Evolution is about the promotion of genes...not necessarily procreation. Kin selection (individuals aiding in the survival of kin) is also an alternative method of evolution and the promotion of genes. There are theories about how homosexuality fits this paradigm.

ROFLMAO
If you think I am having trouble comprehending what you are saying, you might consider the possibility that you are not being very clear in how you say it.
Darwin,

RE-read your reasoning. Do you really think those are valid? I would be embarrassed...

As to theories about homosexuality, kin-selection is not accepted. You should read up on epi-genetics.

Right...because what we see is low rates of infection among the rich and high rates of infection among the poor. Which clearly has nothing to do with social inequalities...NOT.

Ah...dude...one or several...the same applies. listing 100 rich people with AIDS does not invalidate the point that by far it is poor people that suffer from the disease.

MSM is undeniably the primary cause of the spread of HIV around the world.

Absolutely false. The biggest centers of HIV infection are Africa and SE Asia, where it is passed by heterosexual sex almost exclusively. Rape and prostitution are the main paths of infection.(Did you know that in SE Africa, there is a myth going around that sex with a virgin will cure AIDS. And a large percentage of males believe this to be true...or are at least desperate enough to try it. Rape a virgin and you're cured...or so it goes.)

Even in the United States, gays may have a higher rate of infection that straights. But even if you accept the 6 times figure for infection rates, that STILL puts more heterosexuals with AIDS than gays.

If it weren't for your anti-gay bigotry, you might realize these things.

Let me get this straight...
HIV virus does not care about sexuality, but it cares about whether one is poor.
Nobody blames the virus for being spread by a particular activity, Hiding.
They were discussing human choices, not viral choices.
But thanks once again for an enlightening lecture that makes no sense.
Curious. Is there any problem in the universe you don't blame on discrimination?
Toe fungus? Humidity?
Typical Buck idiocy.

No, Buck, HIV doesn't care about whether you are poor or not. But the conditions poor people live under make it more likely they will be exposed.

The same dynamics are at work that cause poor people to contract typhus more often than rich people.

But then, I know this is too subtle a point for you to grasp.
