I know; christianity has "borrowed" much from other religions, including the idea of Karma from the Buddhists.
<quoted text>
Yet you don't live by that yourself; you just expect others to, because it really doesn't apply to you since you claim that you're "forgiven" and all.
Besides, jesus never said anything; he never existed.
<quoted text>
Pagans were around long before you christians. "Karma"--the idea that what goes around eventually comes asround--is a Buddhist concept, far older than christianity.

And naturally, since you're losing the argument, this is where you drag out your old buddy Satan--your favorite whipping boy, who lives only inside the sick and hateful imaginations of those who believe in it.

huh??? how many times now have i told you that i like you,
What's that got to do with anything?

You claim you follow the christian path, yet you demonstrate your contempt for it by violating it continuously. Stealing from your boss, hiding your "secret Topix life" from your wife and family because you want to pick up women here, and you get to forgive yourself for it. That's christianity for you.

Once again, you don't have the balls to answer my question.
As for sins, I have none; I have plenty of *faults,* but no sins. I am not of your imaginary god, I am not of your sick and hateful religion. Your jesusgod didn't create me or anything else. I don't answer to a fictional character.
Get it in your head.

We expect you to own up to your own standards; you refuse. You claim to be exempt from the standards you would impose on us because you're a christian and you tell yourself you're forgiven, so you can be as irresponsible and hypocritical as you want.

Yet you tell yourself that does not apply to you because of your "divinge forgiveness."
Cazzo stronzo.
<quoted text>
Not living up to your own standards, that you claim a to have a right to impose on us. "Thou shalt not steal," yet you steal from your boss. "Thou shalt not lie," yet you lie to your wife by not informing her of your Topix life, while you hit on women here.
You refuse to take "no" as an answer, which clearly demonstrates your rapist mentality.
How does it feel to get his with your own measuring stick?
"But I'm forgiven by jesus, so I can keep on doing it!" I can hear you telling yourself.

<quoted text> I think we are going to go out for Christmas dinner this year. It's just so much easier on everyone and we get to spend more time talking and less time cooking and washing dishes/cleaning kitchen. We'll make desserts and homemade breads to make sandwiches while sitting up late watching movies.
Hey Water, good to read you! We went out the Christmas prior to our youngest son being born. He was an early January baby and we had a major upheaval that year due to all the hurricanes. I was feeling fat and happy that holiday season….but I had very little energy for some reason LOL! Family members liked to visit us from the North for some reason when we lived in Orlando, so as usual the gang was all there. Wait a second….. I think I remember saying afterwards, that we should do it every year!!

I'm sure I read a survey that showed 98% of Catholic women reported utilizing birth control goods and services in their lifetime.

So.....really, it's just a gaggle of pious men of the Lord that's been offended, and this is one way o'keepin' them wanton daughters of Eve in check.

I wonder if they'd cover burkas? To prevent sunburn, of course........

It's a touchy subject. Like I said, I don't think that it should be forced on anyone.

You didn't address the portion of my post which addressed Viagra and other like drugs for men. How do you feel about insurance companies paying that when it was voted 'yes' by Congress?

Do you think it's right to pay for men to get these drugs and yet not afford women contraceptives?

I haven't heard a single company oppose that on a religious basis. It seems to be kind of one-sided to me.

<quoted text> Skombolis, the employer is not paying for these things. The Insurance companies are. But I agree that no one should be forced to take this action if it is against what they believe in.
I think if insurance companies and Medicare cover Viagra and other like drugs, they should cover birth control for women though. It's not either/or. It should be that they either cover both, or neither.
I was unaware that both were not covered until recently.

That went straight into my "Say what??" file.

I wrote selective skepticism is not rational. Skepticism applied to others but exempted from their own conclusions. Perhaps they do not have any. Unbelief is not validated by attacking Theism only. It seems few here ask themselves, what if i am wrong? 19979/422461.
"what if I am wrong" is a good question. If you want a question that illuminates how others think, then you have to ask "what is it like, what is experience like, as X?" (where X is the person you're trying to empathize with - "an atheist," "an Efe," "A Chinese (or other nationality)," etc.
For what? The existence of Jesus and His death via Pilate is established history. That has been presented time and again and ignored by so called ''rational skeptics'' on Topix. There is the James ossuary. Not a fake.
Books written after the fact, that aren't corroborated, that are written to promote a religious belief system, aren't evidence.

But whatever, I'll give you Jesus's death by execution. I'll even concede that he would have been the most charismatic person ever to have lived.
You reduce it all to ''subjective experience'' which is a lie.
All human experience is only subjective experience. Telling me that I am lying is not actually argument - you know this, right?

"All believers in all religions rely upon their religion's construction of human experience to interpret, filter and understand their spirituality."
Oh? And you know that how?
Years and years of studying how humans work. How much detail do you want?
You keep ranting on based on mistakes and arrogant assumptions purporting to somehow know all believers based their assumptions on subjective experience. A lame and self serving con job.
Again, you are not proposing a counter argument, but making an empty claim.
There are objective realities which transcends personal experiences and cultures.
Such as? And, what's your evidence for your claim here?
Do you know my upbringing? Religious upbringing does not make any claims automatically false. The same could be said for your atheism. They mistake their own experience for objective reality in that they assume no God. They do not critically examine anything regarding their atheism. Could my atheism be wrong and what if i am?
My atheism is an inference. It's based on my reading of the available evidence. I might be wrong, I have no problems admitting that.

I don't know your upbringing. You speak English and are from USA, right? If so, that means you were raised in Christian Western culture - that tells me a lot about how you think, what you consider normal and natural, your mores, values and norms.
Atheim is faith base.
How so?
You just don't call it that nor do you require have to provide any justification because a negative cannot be proven is the classic justification. Is atheism true? Does it conform to all of reality? And i note. Your atheism is not validated by attacking Theism and never will be. Nor are your false assumptions and mischaracterizations.
This is, I believe, the most cogent position you've produced - thank you!

My atheism arises from the fact that all scientific explanations of nature include no deities or magical beings. Not a single theory requires a Creator or deity to explain its phenomena. Additionally, the claims of the various religions do not jive with science and are often mutually exclusive, yet all believers in all religions "know" they have "the one, true god" etc.

People almost always believe that their culture, their "way of experiencing" is normal and natural for all humans. That's simply false - people speaking different languages, in different cultures, with different religions have wildly differing ways of knowing and constructing life and experience.

We should flat out reject anyone who tells us they have found the "one, true" way of living.
