So is abortion moral?
It is legal, which means that it is moral according to the culture which set that law.

<quoted text>
What are you prating on about, Mangleboy? I didn't say that his question was illegitimate. I said that he probably didn't ask the question that he wanted answered. I said that based on the context of his discussion - aging. I'm pretty sure that he was looking for practical information about things that actually happen or might be made to happen, not infinitesimally likely statistical fluctuations with magnitudes on the order of the likelihood of your god existing uncreated.
.
Tsk Tsk more lies Iansy?

Ians said:

"That's probably not the question you want answered. It's analogous to asking if gravity can be reversed,.."

"Your writing on science shows that you have almost no familiarity with it. Yet you write with the demeanor of a person who thinks he understands it. Your question probably should be asking what entropy is, and how it relates to aging"

"..you can't draw objectively useful conclusions - just ones useful to your preferred, faith based view of the world.
Science doesn't support your beliefs, and arguing as if it does while showing a lack of sophistication about it is not convincing."

Just like I said. You tried to be arrogant and condescending and act the question showed he had no idea what he was talking about. Yet that turned out to be YOU!

But oh yeah, the guy with the doctorates and PHDs who specializes in that area of study is wrong and you are right. After all, science takes after you!

I can't remember a time when I wasn't a Christian, so from my perspective I was born this way.
Sound familiar?
no one is born believing

that you were indoctrinated so early in life ought to promote you to question your belief set. That it does not, is a comment <condemnation> upon your intellect

More Christspeak against independence from the church. We want authentic and fulfilling lives, and we want to pursue happiness our way, which includes (gasp!) the pursuit of pleasure and satisfaction. The church wants us to submit, to feel guilt, to eschew pleasure, and to consider gratuitous self-denial and suffering virtues. No. I am a free and autonomous agent. I bow to no king and to no priest, and I worship no god.

That's what we're here for - both of us - to observe one another. So thanks back at you for letting us see what you've submitted to, what Christian self-loathing and misanthropy looks like, and what the resulting broken Christian slave mentality looks like.

But it didn't come from the Christian church, because they don't remember their priests telling them from a pulpit to hate women on any particular Sunday morning. Nor gays nor atheists.

You must malign and paint anyone who does not agree with you as hostile, and "militant". If people who aren't theist voice an objection to your religiously derived stance on a subject or opinion, that is often labeled as being "militant'.
Don't forget "bigot." Anybody expressing a negative opinion about the church is a god-hating, Christian-hating bigot.

The important thing is to smear any critic of the church.

All due respect Hiding but people can use a legal degree for a lot of different things, not just trial law, and no way, no how is Catcher a trial attorney. HL admitted as much, although I'm sure she didn't realize it exposed earlier claims as fraudulent
Catcher is not lying. He's not a liar. He's a very well credentialed lawyer. What he does with his time away from here is both commendable and dignified.

<quoted text>It actually was a nice little service and it was normally anywhere like an extra dime or 15 cents per gallon. But that was back when gas was $1-$1.30 per gallon. Like early 90s. And there had to be a full-service pump set aside. If assume when gas starts getting so expensive and not wanting a pump to be tied up for a service being used less and less is why it got phased out.
I might Google it to see when the last ones were around if there is some way to know that. I know I haven't seen one in at least ten years if not longer
We still have full service stations here. Most people are afraid to do the self-service thing. Literally afraid.

Topix should please you. It's where weak-minded people with no particular talent can fling feces at the kinds of people that they resent. Why don't you practice your chops. Pick one of the professions and smear it.

That's from early last century. It's a Soviet organization. Here's the transliteration of the membership card: "Soyuz voinstvuyushchikh bezbozhnikov"

We're secular humanists, not Communists. We deplore ideologies of violence as much as we do theologies of despair.

The fact that that was your illustration of how dangerous we are is evidence that you have no case.

Wrong Skippy.

How can your "genealogy of Adam" laughable theory be used to determine the age of the Earth when Adam wasn't even around when God created the Heavens and the Earth in Genesis 1:1.

Epic fail Grasshopper!!!

Care to try again?

And while you're at it, please feel free to dazzle us with your biblical knowledge by telling us how much time elapsed between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.
