I agree. RR may tell himself that he is questioning his faith, but I haven't seen any sign of it either. His positions always come straight out of conservative Christianity. And his arguments come from the worst of Christian apologetics.

I think his "I would kill my son if God told me to" says it all.

Give me some real physics, big boy.
Dave, your knowledge of basic physics is so bad that it would take me (literally) years to bring you up to the point where you could understand.

But maybe you can understand this...the "hole" in black hole is allegorical in a sense. As is so common with theists, they are far too literal in their reading of things.

(Think of the Big Bang. No bang actually. No explosion. Just a rapid expansion of space. But "Big Bang" give a certain flavor of what really happened. The "bang" is allegorical.)

Bigotry wrapped in piety is still bigotry. Wouldn't you call a racist person using the bible to justify their racism a bigot? I do hope so.
You don’t believe in God yet you believe in sinners?

The sexual act of homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible.

“they aren't entitled to the same rights as everyone else?”

Yes and No. Homosexuals should be allowed to work, live and be free. With all the inalienable rights we all have. But they’re not entitled to trump our religious belief.

Wow. I pity her. She sounds like some here, so full of fear in the positions they claim to stand on she spends time ripping anyone that doesn't share her worldview. Btw, any woman that is married and raises children is a hero, they give up things for their family and despite her crap its not easy nor average.

For really.

Creating and preparing the next and subsequent generations is no big deal. They can do it with computers, trained professionals, and TV now. Why should women involve themselves in such mundane tasks? They can go out and show those men they have bigger dicks. Anyone can buy a bigger one on the internet.

Then after a few decades of showing how unnecessary the men and next generation are they can always retire and have that great sex with their 70-80-90 year old life partners, take strolls with their walkers together to keep those hip replacements in shape. Get drunk on Club Med vacations, just have a great old time. Oh, the fun they can have in those last 30-40 years with no kids to bug them. They can leave their money to their pet chihuahuas.

What real woman needs people calling them Mommy or Grandma?

Life would be just a blast for them.

Oh, if those stupid ignorant unenlightened twats out there having babies knew what they knew the world would be a better place.

Several light years in nanoseconds is an explosion. Read your physics books. I will venture to say that is faster than nitroglycerin exploding. Or light travels.

I didn't name them black holes. Astroohysicists did. Why would they do that?

Darwins Stupidson, go back to reading your comic books. You ain't gonna make it in the real world.

And don't forget your remark about reading things too literal when you talk about religious texts in the future. Someone will call you a hypocrite.

DarwinStepped-In-Shit lectures you about being ignorant of physics, but he doesn't know what an explosion is, and blames you for naming "black holes".

You put him in his place well.

There seems to be some controversy about the Grammys.

Satanic stuff, for one.

Looks cool, huh?

Make's that pagan and Satanic worship stuff looks like fun. Everyone should do it, right?

Let me tell you what that stuff was really about. It wasn't your neo-pagan witchy poo stuff.

"The torture had strong sacrificial overtones, usually to the sun.[4] Captives were expected to show extreme self-control and composure during torture, singing "death songs", bragging of one's courage or deeds in battle, and otherwise showing defiance.[5] The torture was conducted publicly in the captors' village, and the entire population (including children) watched and participated.[6] Common torture techniques included burning the captive- which was done one hot coal at a time, rather than the Hollywood-style pile of firewood around the captive - cuts from knives, beatings with switches and jabs from sharp sticks. Prisoners' fingernails were ripped out. Their fingers were broken, then twisted and yanked by children. Captives were made to eat pieces of their own flesh, and were scalped alive. To make the torture last longer, the Native Americans would revive captives with rest periods during which time they were given food and water. Tortures would begin with the lower limbs, then gradually spread to the arms, then the torso. The Native Americans spoke of "caressing" the prisoners gently at first, which meant that the initial tortures were designed to cause pain, but only minimal bodily harm. By these means, the execution of a captive, especially an adult male, could take several days and nights."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captives_in_Amer...

That was the nice guys, our own American home grown noble savages. Whom I have ancestors from.

There were serious commitments in those rites, not play acting. Then those nasty Europeans came with their religion and stopped it.

I touched upon the why and how in the past this came about. Had to do with telluric currents, and channeling energies. Organic bodies made portable power supplies.

You do not want to open that door again.

There is not more than one Korea. There is a territory called "Korea". it is divided into 2 countries - North Korea and South Korea.

There is only one "Korea". You are the dumbest poster on Topix.

Once they hear about it homosexuals will be so appreciative now that they have been given the green light on being allowed to work,live and be free! I'm curious though how are homosexuals trumping your religious belief?
