Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

And you condemn cultures that still protect their daughters from being labeled sluts?
Oh wait, not 'all' cultures, just ancient Abrahamic cultures!

Mongrel? You're mentally ill and sexually sick. Oh, yeah, a Christian.

You're assuming. In doing so, you rendered this debate pointless. I will not sit here and argue with some fool that thinks DNA didn't exist until it was discovered.

"Pregnancy" is an odd way to describe a human being.
Do you call yourself a "delivery"? Morons.
I've always found it amusing to see women congratulate each other for getting pregnant, as if they've done something so miraculous and rare that merits congratulations...

I also find it amusing when perfectly healthy and pregnant women pretend like pregnancy = handicapped.

In 1777, Jefferson composed the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, enacted a few years later by the Virginia House of Delegates. It was the first law in the history of the world to guarantee freedom of worship, protecting people of all faiths and those with no religion at all.

Although he kept his personal beliefs private, he often spoke out against religious intolerance. In his Notes on the State of Virginia, first published in 1784, Jefferson argued that unorthodox beliefs and outright disbelief posed no threat to society.“It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”

For this, Jefferson was denounced in the election of 1800 as an arch-infidel and a “howling atheist.” New England ministers warned that if elected, Jefferson would confiscate all Bibles and convert churches into temples of prostitution.

Funny, but churches are already temples of prostitution.

The presidential election of 1800 is generally considered the nastiest in American history. Indeed, the campaign did not reflect well on the Founders or their new government. The race between Federalist John Adams and Republican Thomas Jefferson was raucous, bitter, and unpredictable. Historian David McCullough wrote that according to the opposing campaigns, "if Jefferson was a Jacobin, a shameless southern libertine, and a 'howling' atheist, Adams was a Tory, a vain Yankee scold, and, if truth be known,'quite mad.''"

All that junk at the beginning is cool and all, but no one cares about your backstory. The fact that you continue to try to use a nonsensical Christian would-be insult just proves how stupid you really are. Worse than what Christians did? Hardly! Name one thing that ANYONE is doing today that is worse than the crap that Christians did during the crusades, I dare you.
I was asked about it, so apparently someone did care Blondie.

Abortion.

Or,

'Rational atheist' oxymorons reaching way back to the Crusades which stopping Islam killing and pillaging it's way to Europe and avoiding the countless congregations engaged in benevolence and good works RIGHT IN YOUR COMMUNITY, RIGHT NOW!

In that instance, the person was an indentured servant, but married and had a child during his 7 years. Since his wife was a full slave, the master owned her and the child. The indentured servant had the choice of going his way alone, or staying with his wife and child. Or children. Man what a choice. I guess he got a free slave he didn't have to buy. But that is what the choice was about.
A full bought slave never had a choice cause he was the property of the owner.
Ancient cultures are interesting, aren't they?

It's weird that what we find immoral or crazy today would be seen as normal in their day and their culture.

What's the point of responding to this sort of idiocy?

The scary thing is that there are people like the Redneck out there, running around unsupervised.
With weapons no less. Sheesh.

From what I've read, heard and watched, Pat Robertson looks like yet another religious lunatic.

I agree, I never take riversidebucktard seriously at all. Akin to watching a defective ape in a cage.

Jefferson's closing in his First Inaugural speech:

"I shall need, too, the favor of that Being in whose hands we are, who led our fathers, as Israel of old, from their native land and planted them in a country flowing with all the necessaries and comforts of life; who has covered our infancy with His providence and our riper years with His wisdom and power, and to whose goodness I ask you to join in supplications with me that He will so enlighten the minds of your servants, guide their councils, and prosper their measures that whatsoever they do shall result in your good, and shall secure to you the peace, friendship, and approbation of all nations."

Again, what qualifies the poster boy for 'rational atheist' oxymorons to judge the righteous?

I knew you were right, Catcher, about Redneck's unreliability. I didn't expect a miracle, didn't hold my breath, but allowed breathing space.

Today, clearly, Redneck was unable to contain himself, and broke his public promise - and, more importantly, his promise to Skydaddy.

The preamble to tomorrow's Public Service Announcement may be found on PTAG.
