Please explain how you read that in my post....
I have been sitting her feeling rather disappointed that I never woke up between three girls. I can't imagine having to live with three women all the time, but the occasional episode of waking up with 3 kind of has a nice ring to it. I have waken up in bed with 3 different women within a 6 - 7 year period, but only one at a time, and they were all my partner or wives at the time (not at the same time though).

Hey if it was up to me pre-marital sex would be fine and I could beat the crap out of anyone that wanted to solve a dispute that way. I don't think either things are immoral based on my moral code. But I defer to God in these instances, at least so far as knowing it is a sin
I personally don't care one way or the other who is gay. But it really should make no difference if it is a sin.insofar as any societal effect or prejudice because I don't know a single person who doesn't still sin. Could you imagine if a church tried to deny someone communion because the person was known to have told a lie or slept with their girlfriend before marriage? They would be the laughing stock of the faith.yet this has been done to people who are gay.
I guess my point is that removing, even if we had the option which we don't, would change nothing. I promise you at least 99.9% of all bigots were not like "well I wasn't sure how I felt until I saw the Bible says it was wrong". They were bigots well before and if they didn't use God as a reason they would just use society or family values or morality or any number of rationalizations to perpetuate their hate.

the church needs be held criminally responsible for sanctifying the bigotry.

I agree there is still much to discover.Was just giving a poster a hard time about a comment he made which was essentially if God existed science would have already discovered evidence of him, ergo he can't exist. I believe their is probably a LOT still left to be discovered both scientifically and with faith...the "when" could be anytime from soon to never till not in this plane of existence or this life but no way do I believe we already know all there is to know about what is out there.

You are a slow learner and a very hard-headed idiot, incapable of tearing away from your absent-minded , empty brained agenda.
You should become a free-thinking Christian.

Releasing your hatred is probably your chief stumbling block from departing from your cult.

Karl is probably in prison, where most atheists are caged for their crimes.

How he is getting to a computer should be investigated.

Now they are going to show stats where most in jails are Christians, but that is a lie. They enter as atheists, then become Christians just to try to fool the parole officers.

Once released, they go back to killing and stealing.

I agree that is the best way to approach morality and even how to live.Pascal's Wager is a joke and it not real belief. However this is one area it can be applied tot hat makes sense and that is morality.
I believe in God. Even if I didn't I believe in morality. I am going to strive to get better at loving my neighbor and doing unto others as they do to me because it is the right way to live.
If when I die if it turns out there is no God, I am not going to regret I lived a relatively moral life for no reason. That would be silly.I would say hey, I tried to live the right way and however the ball bounces after that I am ok with it because the small part I had some say in (how I live my life) I tried my best.
My goal for when I die is to leave the world just slightly better for me having lived in it, not worse. If I do that I can die happy. If there is an after-life to be had then all the better. But even if somehow I knew there was o after-life, I wouldn't change a thing as for how i approach life

I give you an accolade, you get a wheelbarrow of respect for the evaluation that "Pascal's Wager is a joke"

However you are wrong with:

" I am going to strive to get better at loving my neighbor and doing unto others as they do to me because it is the right way to live."

that is failed christian morals.

"do unto others as I would have them do unto me"

is the correct delivery.

and that is still not the highest ethical position.

but the golden rule is adequate for the kind of intellect that would find itself a christian.

If the Bible was written as the Perfect Word of God, then it would be definite and specific, and once read its meaning would be clear, and continual study of it would yield nothing new.
Study assumes interpretation, and then we get 40,000 different denominations plus several different religions springing up from the same source, because everyone reads something different into it.
if the bible were dictated by a god, it would require no apologetic.

People will falsely claim to be Christian not only hoping to earn points with Parole Officers, judges, etc but also it affords them privledges when locked up like going to church, visits from priests, etc. Plus the majority of the population is Christian and to compare stats one would need to compare the same demographic. Atheists as a group tend to be from middle to high incomes. Crime is a bi-product first and foremost of socio-economic factors and the criminal justice system targets minorities and violent crime and people who cant afford good lawyers to get . Take rich White Christians and compare them to rich White Atheists to get the real stats. i'm not bagging on all atheists but i sure think Karl is something else!(T) PEACE

Karl I could spend all night making you look silly but that seems like a waste of time when your own posts do that already. Only you can find this much to complain about between pleasant, peaceful exchanges. Change your diaper or something. You may have the last word, I am sure you want it
