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.

You just told us you change your mind on your beliefs.
First, you'd disown your gay son.
Then, you reconsidered, and wouldn't disown him.
That's a major change of mind.
Have you no intellectual integrity whatsoever?
Never mind. You don't have to answer that.
Just as I've grown in my views and acceptance of homosexuals, I hope you can grow and change your views of Christians.

It'd be a good idea if you stop trying.
Well, if you stick strictly to the KJV. then it only mentions linen and wool. But the KJV is not that good a translation. Most newer translations, attempting to be a more accurate translation, say something like...

"'Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material."
--New International Version

"Do not wear clothing woven from two different kinds of thread."
--New Living Translation

"...nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together."
--New American Standard Bible

The original text (you know...the one in Hebrew, not English) talks of two different fabrics.

For a fairly comprehensive list of what different English version of the Bible say, see...

So tell me again, who clearly doesn't understand scripture?

<quoted text>The Redneck lacks a value system.

One day, he'll tell us that if his son announced that he's gay, he'd disinherit him (his own son for chrissakes).

A little later, he'll tell us he's changed his mind--he'd be disappointed, but would still love him.

The Redneck reserves the right to flounder about, saying this one day and that the next.

He's done it with homosexuality, with racial bigotry, with misogyny.

No set of values whatsoever; no backbone.

And yet, he has the gall to pontificate.
I agree and what's the deal with his Internet hypocrisy?

He googles everything, poorly but still, tells people to go to 'the googlers', then goes on about online information not being true or whatever.

The dude has issues and should be grateful that some of us are kind enough to try to help him out.

The site below is proof Kim Jon-Un is Atheist

Liar, no it is NOT proof, copy and paste the portion in this Wikipedia that shows Kim Jong-Un to be an Atheist. Your dishonesty is appalling, as is your continual lying. Isn't lying a sin in your despicable religion?

Did you even bother to read this biography or just assume he was an Atheist?

Your God is worse than Kim, your God fed a group of teenagers to a bear.

What parent did you inherit your company from? It would be hard to imagine someone that ignorant of the business world started his own company. Then again, this is the Internet!
And it is a little late to try to redefine "lonely at the top" when you used it to explain your lack of friends!
And of course you will still post to me. You are obsessed and are a troll
I never post to you first yet you remain infatuated with me. Despite pointing this out several times you still can't stop yourself. Are there other anonymous guys online you show such constant 1-way interest in or is it just me? I don't think a day has gone by in over a year that we have both been posting in the same room that you don't post to me. That's kinda creepy Bongo!
snide boy, this exchange started when I posted to someone else, not you, saying you went to university of united states and I repeated ians accurate description of you. You came out guns blazing because you cant handle joking around. Like BLOB says , it was very Christ like of you. You aren't a very mature Christian are you/? In fact youre a tenacious little bitch. Your personal attacks and insolent assumptions show your depravity. Now, to save the people in the room from a typical skomby marathon of drivel and my desire to keep my New Years resolution to be a better Christian I will stipulate youre a lot smarter than me and God respects you more. If you wish to continue the useless banter im all for the entertainment, for me, for you its serious business , right?

I'm a big fan of the genre (horror). If you didn't like the Saw series, you probably don't like the Hostel movies, the teenager slasher movies like the Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Friday the 13th series. or the mutant movies like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wrong Turn, and The Hills Have Eyes. And then there are the zombies and vampires.
I like some of each, although the worst teenager movies are insufferable, and much of the vampire stuff is unwatchable as well.
Actually, I am a fan of several of the movies that you mentioned. I am not against gore and violence in horror movies, but I do not like their gratuitous use.

For example, I don't like most of Clive Barker's movies. I have read only one Barker book, and it seemed to be more about disgusting you than terrifying you. Turned me off on him as a writer. And, as I say, most of his movies don't do anything for me. The Hellraiser series included.

The two exceptions to this that I can think of (and remember everybody, I am speaking of my opinions...not facts) are Nightbreed and Lord of Illusions. While these have no shortage of gore and violence, their plots are not reliant upon them.

And still I do have a love of directors that can instill that sense of terror without resorting to graphic violence. I think it takes the directors art to a higher level.

Care to explain the description of radiation that Moses experienced when he met with the Alien?
Smile.
Sure it was actually, and no one knows this so keep it hush, it was God up in heaven with a huge magnifying glass attempting to fry Moses like kids do with ants. The Alien was protected by his force field, Moses used the tablets that the 10 commandments were written on as a shield. Thank Crom for those stone tablets, or Moses wouldn't have been around to oversee the rape of all those thousands of virgins that God ordered.

She, being Sybil's christian mother, says to her christian husband that the Doctor is wrong because "god" told her that she does not have paranoid schizophrenia.
The christian husband, who is Sybil's father, accepts his christian wife's assessment over the Doctor's diagnoses.
Their christian church did not approve of Doctors of the mind.
Is that easier to understand ar ar?
If you say you talk to God, everyone thinks that is normal.

If you say God talks to you, everyone thinks that is crazy.

That doesn't make it bad, just not normal.

Just like being left handed, albinos, fear of cereal boxes, putting ketchup on pizza and crapping on your sex partner during sex all aren't normal.

Buck, you are discriminating against yourself. You are denying yourself the right to marry Dave.
Your argument is, of course, disingenuous in the extreme. You are discriminating against anyone that wants to marry someone of the same sex. You are denying them their right to happiness. You are saying you can only be happy if you love someone of a different sex.
And I bet you would think it HAWT if you had two beautiful lesbians living next door to you.
Marriage has a powerful potential to impact the world.

That is why a deception of such an important relationship is not just a fallacy, but dangerous denial.

The real question is, why do homosexuals want to poorly mimic a relationship they are clearly inferior to?

Well geez.

Your awesome googling abilities clearly mean you understand Scripture better than I.

But I will agree with you one thing, the KJV isn't a reliable translation.

According to the Bible, marriage is between one man and 700 wives and 300 concubines.

Solomon must have been continuously exhausted.

And one has to wonder what all those wives and concubines were doing to relieve sexual tension while Solomon was busy elsewhere...which would have been almost all the time.

But then, does anyone recall the Bible prohibiting women lying with women?
