Why should it make you sad that some anonymous poster prefers a little younger guy? It is what it is. Some people have a "type" that they are attracted to, some don't. Also, if you are married the subject should be irrelevant.
FYI, today's 19 year old boys are much more sophisticated, sexually, than previous generations like yours. Older men ain't got nuthin' on them.
Kind of interesting that you took my post to her that seriously. Actually, no offense to younger people, as we all were there at some point, though due to life circumstances, a major death in the family, and heavy farm work to do, I actually missed out a lot of the growing up years living like a kid of my age, because I had to grow up fast.

Personally, and I mean this in all sincerity, it I was looking, which I am not, for a new woman, and I went either to a bar, some social event, or even online, which is how I found my current wife, I would not even consider a relationship with someone more than 10 or 15 years younger than myself, because strangely enough, when you are young, middle age and old people seem ancient, but when you get up to those years, young people seem very childish.

I would not enjoy spending a lot of time with a woman in her teens, or 20s to 40s, as they would not have the same interests in general as I do, nor would they have the same energy level to follow interests as I do.

My 1st wife and my current wife were both 9 to 10 months younger than me. My gf/common-law wife between my two legal marriages was 5 years younger than me, and that was only coincidental as she and I happened to be walking together on a hiking club walk, and found out we were both divorced/separated, and since that was only shortly after I had been living with my first wife (about 1 1/2 months actually) most of my previous hikes I would have been hiking with singles or married people, but would have been in a marriage and not looking.

We kind of hit it off, and at the age I was then, 5 years difference was not that significant.

When I was in highschool, lower grades, I thought the kids in grade 13 (yes grade 13 in Ontario until fairly recently) were very adult and grown up. Now when I see university kids on the buses or street here, as we have a university here, I think they seem like little kids to me. It amazes me (in my mind) that kids go to university so young (actually they do start now one year younger than earlier due to eliminating grade 13, which was required to go to university).

Though a very young woman might appear attractive to me initially, my interest would wain quickly as I got to know her, in most cases. I do like to joke around with women on here though, as age is very difficult to see from behind a computer monitor.

.. why did you change focus from slavery to homosexuality and eternal salvation? Should we request an impartial moderator ??..
Synopsis
1. God ordained and blessed slavery in Genesis 9:25-26 (The Curse of Ham).
2. Any form of slavery is immoral.
3. Logically, the Abrahamic God is immoral.
.. don't lecture me on morals when you protect, defend and justify the immoral practice of slavery condoned by your God ..
LOL. Seems you like to dish it out but don't like it much when it is handed back to you! I addressed slavery. You ignored. Did not respond to my points. You have an agenda. That is all i pointed out.

Erp, pardon me, actually I was originally thinking of writing "most" or "many" but changed it to what I thought would be more accurate. Of the 19-somethings I've been with "most" WERE impressive.

I took it that you were being your usually boring boorish self, seriously.

And here you are, yet again, slipping into that role with your typical, essay length response.

I would consider reading and responding to you more if it were not for the lengthy rants. That, and your inability to ignore YD, makes you a tedious read.

How can one believe in Zeus & also believe there is no God? Zeus is a god.
Because Zeus is not God. Zeus is not Thor either. Do you understand that there is a difference between god and God?

There is a difference between asking for a kleenex and asking for a Kleenex. One is a proper noun, the other is not. Whenever kleenex isn't capitalized, it is synonymous with tissue. Whenever god is capitalized, it refers only to the Bible god, but when it is not capitalized, it is synonymous with deity.

Why do I have to tell you this?

That's not atheism. That's anti-theism. There is no need to teach atheism. Everyone is born lacking beliefs in gods. You have to "teach" them out of it.

This is a strawman. Non belief is non belief. It takes absolutely no effort to be born without belief.

Who is teaching what you describe? Are you claiming that these beliefs are being taught? If so, prove it. Otherwise, I will dismiss your claim.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
There is no such thing a gnostic atheism.
A gnostic atheist is someone who believes that there is no God, that he KNOWS that for sure, and that it can be proven in some way.
Since it can't be proven, no gnostic atheist.
Why can't you understand the simplest things?

I know, you're delusional.

A gnostic atheist BELIEVES that there are no gods. The one called God is not in the definition. A gnostic atheist BELIEVES they can KNOW for sure, just as the gnostic theist BELIEVES they can KNOW for sure that there is at least one god.

Gnostic atheism is an irrational position, even though it is likely a correct position.

Using your logic, if there is no such thing as God, there are no Christians either. Gnostic atheists don't have to know there is no god to believe it, just as gnostic theists don't have to know there is a god to believe it. These labels are based on what people believe or don't believe, not about what is correct or not correct.

To recap, God is not god. If you can't get that, please use the word "deity" when you mean generic god, and "Yahweh" when you are talking about the deity of the Bible. I don't mind pointing out your errors again and again, but you should.

Read this carefully because it's going to be difficult for you to grasp.

Whether you know it or not - gods - is what you mean. since the Yahweh, which, within your mythology is the father of your Jesus deity, and also a part of a triple godhead once the "holy spirit" is added - is a remnant of polytheism.

Christianity balks at the mention of this, and that is THE reason the Triune was dreamed up as an attempt to explain the entire convoluted mess, since Christianity asserts it is monotheistic.

Christianity came from Judaism and rests upon the foundations of Judaism, it must attempt to remain monotheistic. The solution?

Introduce the Triune.

.. rebutted each of your justifications for slavery, found all invalid. No defense can overcome the simple fact that slavery is immoral and that the Abrahamic God endorses it ..

.. instead of addressing my points, you decided to change focus and pursue a personal attack because your belief system requires absolute adherence to a certain dogma and the implementation of any diversionary tactic when faced with a contradiction or dilemma. You did not offend me. Did I offend you by pointing out your posting maneuver ??..

God didn't reveal himself to the Canaanite culture as far as I know.
The Hebrews were a people that emerged from the Canaanites, who were polytheistic.

They(Hebrews/Judaism) were polytheistic in early history, and took their religious beliefs and deities - from the Canaanites.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
They wouldn't have known anything about him.
Up until the Exile, the Canaanites would have recognized that Judaism incorporated Canaanite deities and concepts.

In early Judaism, the deities were the same as the Canaanite deities - Yahweh, Ba'al and Asherah being the chief among those among the Hebrew people, revered by both the Hebrew and Canaanites in varying degrees.

Judaism and the Hebrew people evolved from Canaanite culture, they brought their(Canaanite) deities with them and over time adapted those deities to suit the new and evolving culture which was polytheistic, and only began the transition to monotheism at the time of the Babylonian exile, being fully monotheistic After that exilic period.

This is what the evidence shows.- this is what the historical and archaeological evidence shows.

No one is making it up. That is based on the evidence available.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
So? You quoted from the Standard Jewish Bible, not a canaanite work.
Of course it's the Judaic bible(OT).

That is part of your bible too, the Jewish version translated to English, for Jews, just happens to be faithful to its origin, meaning that it is an accurate rendition.

The Christian version of the OT(the Jewish bible as you put it) IS the inaccurate version and translation here.

The Jewish version is THE VERSION. There is no other version but the Judaic OT/Tanakh.
