It is a fact.
You cannot dismiss it simply because you don't like it.
You don't see me saying that militant atheists "aren't atheists."
I accept the fact that they are and make a simple deduction that they just want to cause trouble for religious people.
Hitler said some Christian sounding things in his campaign speeches, of course he did. Bush, sr also said "No new taxes", and some people bought it.

He would have been a fool to say "I am evil and i want to destroy society and launch us into a two front war we can't win, vote for me." Atheists naively assume we can trust his campaign speeches just as we would a personal diary, but most of us know you can't trust anything a politician says in a camping.

Ok, I gotcha.
"Evidence based belief is the result of a trail of logically valid thought leading from observables to conclusions."
So the evidence based belief that God is a myth, man-made, not real, etc is based on nothing; because you have no evidence to support that idea.
You're standing on your head.

Absence of evidence is evidence of absence.

I JUST asked you this question:
"Do you think "once a Christian, always a Christian" is true?"
And you haven't answered that one.
My answer is no.

But there are Christians on this thread who believe that once a person is saved, he or she is always saved. So you can leave the faith and still be ok, go to heaven, receive all available benefits.

Do you believe in OSAS? It was for a while a controversial issue on this thread, or so I hear.

Oh ya.
I just looked into it, apparently, fetuses don't feel pain until 20-24 weeks.
Fetuses?
Feti?
So, IMHO, I don't see any problem with aborting a fetus which is neither sentient, nor can feel pain. But at the point where those things might be present, then it's immoral as an optional procedure, but might be moral if the mother's life was endangered, and possibly moral if the baby was predicted to be severely malformed (though that is another whole can of worms).

What I don't understand is your apparent position (correct me if I'm wrong) that a fetus is life, yet you are pro-choice. If you really believed the fetus was the equivalent of a baby, then wouldn't you be condoning murder?

Please demonstrate some biblical support for the Crusades or the Inquisition.
Go.
Theological foundations for the Inquisition

"The proponents of the Inquisition (and, amazingly, apologists since the Inquisition ended in 1834), point to both Biblical and theological sources for its justification. The biblical passages most often quoted by the early Inquisitors were from Mosaic Law, in the Old Testament. This is, of course, somewhat questionable theology, as Mosaic Law regarding, say, dietary restrictions were completely ignored by the Church from the 1st century on, yet suddenly (in the 13th century), Mosaic Law seemed to be a perfectly reasonable justification for burning thousands of people at the stake! Key passages are quoted below (edited for brevity):

(From Deuteronomy 13 NIV) "If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you... and he says,'Let us follow other gods'... That prophet or dreamer must be put to death... You must purge the evil from among you.

If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying,'Let us go and worship other gods'... do not yield to him or listen to him. Show him no pity. Do not spare him or shield him... You must certainly put him to death. Your hand must be the first in putting him to death, and then the hands of all the people. Stone him to death... Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again.

If you hear it said about one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you to live in that wicked men have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray... then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. Destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock.

Gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the LORD your God. It is to remain a ruin forever, never to be rebuilt."

(From Exodus 22:18 NIV) "Do not allow a sorceress to live."

Many of the elements found in the aforementioned extracts from Mosaic Law would later be closely emulated by the Inquisition, including:

"Purging" of "prophets and dreamers" (the charge that lead to the death of Joan of Arc)
Family members in the Inquisition were encouraged to testify against each other
Putting to death heretics as an example to others
The guidance to "inquire, probe and investigate" towns that have gone astray could be a job description for later Inquisitors!
Destruction of whole towns, to wipe out heresy.

It was much more difficult for the proponents of the Inquisition to find New Testament justification for their acts. The most often quoted New Testament verse is from John 15:

If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. John 15:6 NIV "

Exactly. You can't just invent afterlives.

And if you can, then I'm inventing another one after that, the third life, or after-afterlife. Why not. If you can just declare the existence of the one extra realm with no evidence, why not two - or three, or whatever you like?

What rational argument can you give for accepting heaven but rejecting after-heaven as well?

.. I get what RR is trying to say. A fetus is life happening but a woman must have the right to decide if the happening occurs. On a personal level, I could never abort because it's ending possible life. But, that does not give me the right to make such a decision for other women based on my personal belief ..

.. I applaud RR for his pro-women position ..

It has been my opinion based on observation that in many cases:

Atheists throw out the baby with the bath water.

Theists drink the dirty water and eat the baby.

There are, thankfully, many atheists and theists alike that are sane enough to pluck the baby from the tub, wrap it in warm blanket, give it hugs and kisses then drain the tub and let the filth go down the drain.

Lol, no. That's what the atheists on this thread think.

No, I don't believe in OSAS. There is a plethora of scripture that disagrees with it, not that you know or care.
