I don't care that you smoke Dave, I'm sure that with all your wisdom and magic, you'll eventually figure out how to ark me up.
I sense that you cannot get a woman to touch you and can see why.
I'll let you get back to your misery now.
It's the saggy skin, nose and ear hair. You will understand when you get older.

Sigh...

In the old days I would have found the problem earlier, but the eyes are worn out, the hands are worn out, I'm worn out. If I just had a young woman eager to learn new tricks.

I thought that you once posted that you were learning tolerance from the unbelievers here. What's exhausting is the effort required to do that. It's like rolling a mossy boulder up an icy hill into a headwind during a mudslide.
Uh-huh

And getting you to acknowledge that some people teach homophobia and not "the church" is like pushing a rope.

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.

Dave is waiting for your explanation of how magical holes in a finite and contiguous universal collection of stuff can grind up matter and spit it out.
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.)

<quoted text>You are a bigot if you believe homosexuals are "sinners," if you believe that they are "wrong," and if you believe they aren't entitled to the same rights as everyone else. 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 donít believe in God yet you believe in sinners?

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

ďthey aren't entitled to the same rights as everyone else?Ē

Yes and No. Homosexuals should be allowed to work, live and be free. With all the inalienable rights we all have. But theyíre 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.
