Hey LW,
Your post reminded me of something.

Sense you like critters, bears and such.

When my Dad was a kid his cousins had a pet bear that would follower them around. They would swing out on a rope over the water and jump into it. The bear would come and jump right in there with them. Just thought you might like that.

@scaritual...wow thats about as classless of someone accepting an apology and admitting a mistake as I have ever seen but cant say im surprised.
Well, you know, this is what your first post consisted of, after I corrected and addressed your misunderstanding of what I'd written, and in that earlier instance you'd implied I was dishonest and excusing away or condoning all sorts of behavior and/or unrelated issues that I didn't speak to at all.

So, this was your first post I see in response to myself, today:
WOW So you when you said they would try to coerce children within a family what you really meant what the total opposite and would engage in an adult consensual relationship once the child reached adulthood?!
LOL
So it went from coercing children to have sex which is rape to a consensual adult relationship!
It is unbelievable the games you guys play
Yeah, I didn't say that, and you were wrong, again.

I guess this was the apology in the next post:
EDIT scaritual I take it back, you did say "once they reach adulthood"
I guess that's an apology, in your estimation.

Just a note; If I ever treat a response of yours as you did mine, and it's my mistake and fault because of my misunderstanding and in doing that, question your integrity and other aspects of your self. Or, if I do something like that to anyone on any of these forums, just as I would in my personal life... I will say something to the effect;

I was mistaken, I misunderstood your post and I was at fault, please accept this apology, if you choose not to, I understand and again I'd like to say I was in the wrong.

But that's me.

Okay, then you actually did apologize, later in the post.

I am still admitting my error as I didn't see the part that said "once they reach adulthood", I just said they would "coerce children"
And again:
Skombolis wrote:
I do apologize for implying you were had been dishonest although my questions remain the same.
HOT DAMN! BITE MY ASS AND CALL ME AN APPLE...!

I consider that last one an apology, and I should have been a bit more gracious about it, but you did over multiple posts accuse me of being dishonest and implied various other improprieties and ills that I was not guilty of.

Forgive me if I had just a bit of the case of the ass, but, I try to be as straightforward and forthright as I can during these discussions, I never set about to be dishonest or conduct myself in less than an honorable upright way. So, anyway, please forgive my less than immediate acceptance of your apology.

Okay, on to the rest.
But let me make this as clear as I can for you. You suggested adults who engage in consensual incest would be prone to coercing children as to indoctrinate them to engage in incest with them when they turn a legal age. So my question is do you think gay couples who engage in consensual adult sex would also coerce gay youth to have sex with them once they turn a legal age? If not why? And what basis do u have to think adults who engage in incest consensually would engage in coercive behavior towards minors to get them to have sex when they become adults?
Im not demonizing any group. Im simply trying to figure out where u came up with adults having incest are more likely to coerce minors? And I want to know because ppl make the same argument that adult homosexuals try to influence children so they can prey on them later.Clear enough for you?
I addressed the above questions in the previous posts, and elucidated at length upon my reasons for the position I have.

I also included numerous other situations and examples covering the topic, and clarified that adequately. Just read them carefully.

You're welcome to disagree, but if you do so, please point out where you felt I didn't, by supplying specific instances from those previous posts exampling my neglect in doing so.

*** Unless our purpose is to grow and develop that faith, I don't see much purpose for the mortal part of our life cycle – the evolutionists might as well have their "its all an accident" scenario. There would be no purpose in living as mortals if we were not here to grow and develop our faith. We could have been "born" (created) directly in Heaven and not gone through our mortal metamorphosis on Earth.

On the other hand, if God just wanted Earthly "yes" men (and women) He could have built blind obedience to Him into our DNA.

Instead, He inserted this "seed of faith".

Much food for thought :)

@scaritual...we are all good. Lets just chalk it up to emotions running high and i understand why my initial post would have added to that although we kind of started off bad from the get go. Let me just explain why im trying to make this point. I believe for the most part ppl are born gay or straght. However in rare cases such as prison somehow ppl can be socialized into engaging in gay sex. Although i think that is some bizarre result of options more than someone can be 'turned gay'. I personally find incest unnatural and deviant. I am thinking u might as well. But because some ppl say the same about those who are gay I think wde have to be careful not to let our emotions cloud our judgement where we assume things like because they engage in unnatural acts it means they are a danger to children because it just gives ppl ammo to use the same argument. That was why i felt this was important 2 clarify there really is no reason to assume either group will try to prey on children by coercing them for future gain

You tell me Mike. How did the same exact names and characteristics wind up on opposite sides of the world 10's of thousands of years apart by 2 civilizations supposedly who never had any contact...ever?

So your belief is predicated on your own desires, not reality.
What if Siddhartha was correct ?
That would mean you created a fantasy world to feed your own selfish desires.
Interestign. You didn't understand what Buddha taught at all. That explains your current misunderstanding of Judaism. You are a perfect Christian.
Now, when the time comes, and it will, that Christianity leaves a void what will you do ?
I suggest learning to play a muscial instrument.
I don't want your concern. If you want buddha, then go to buddha. Be concerned with yourself.
