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.

We each have the same measure of faith to begin with, but like an unwatered plant, faith will wither and die ..... the proof of that is in the puddings :)

You didn't answer my question.
Are you more upset about murder or necrophilia?
The woman who was brutally murdered didn't experience anything but a brutal murder. If the body was molested afterwards, she didn't experience that.
I don't think necrophilia is any more evil than having a foot fetish. People don't generally need to break laws to fulfill a fantasy of sucking someone's toes. If you wanna f_ck a dead body, though, you're probably going to break some laws. When they do, they should be held accountable. Sometimes people have fantasies and urges that they should not realize because they are unethical. They probably aren't choosing to have these fantasies or urges, they just have them. We don't know how many people have fantasies or urges, that if acted upon, would be unethical. Are they evil for having them? Most people behave themselves, no matter what they daydream about. Those that cross the line should be held accountable for crossing the line, not for being "freaks" or "evil".
hey! sorry about last night i fell asleep again talking to you! i'm not saying you're boring!!! lol. I was just too tired!

I thought i did answer your question. I said i was upset about those women being killed!!!!!!!!!!but i think necrophilia is a disgusting fantasy and yes they are evil for thinking like that! How can you even think about giving someone soo much pain? first you loose someone you love and then you find out their body was dug up and raped (i keep saying that but is that the right word to use?)

yh but how can you have fantasies and urges that are unethical? I don't think i have any fantasies like that, so it's hard for me to think how anyone could? to me these people are like evil monsters out of a hollywood film or something!

ok i going to watch the new spiderman, been out all day getting stuff for bonfire night, i'm soo excited! do u guys in america do anything for it? ok talk to u guys later!

*** The first known turtles existed 200 million years ago.

* There are approximately 300 species of turtles.

* Turtles live on every continent except Antarctica.

* Turtles are cold-blooded. One way they regulate their temperature is by basking.

Turtles didn't need how to learn how to protect themselves either, even in 200 million years! Yeah, right, only an ape wanted to become a man!! Makes heaps of sense to me....

You nailed it.
People who do this sort of thing are sick. They suffer from very serious mental illness. And they become unpredictable and highly dangerous.
And of course, we can't discount the harm done to the family of the deceased, who suffer an indignity as horrible as can be imagined. Here in California, we had a case in which the owners of a cemetery, with a profit motive, had their employees dig up interred bodies so they could use the graves again. They did it over and over for years, until they were unmasked. So family members sued, and the courts dealt with the defendants very harshly, with a huge award of punitive damages.
I watched a documentary about this guy in America, I think he was a dentist before but then he went into the funeral business thing (i don't know what u call them) and he was digging up the bodies and removing parts and selling them to hospitals! he replaced the bones with like drain pipes!!! and u know what made me evenmore angry? he's wasn't sorry about it, he kept saying well the hospitals knew about it too, u think nobody knew about what i was doing? it's like just coz they wrong too that doesn't me u were right to do that stuff!

some people are twisted!! Can the government not make a test or something that everyone has to take to check if they mad or not? so then they can keep an eye on these kinds of people and make sure they don't carry out any of their sick fantasies, for the fun of it, profit or for any other reason!!

Anyways, didn't you know, he became a literal new person after being born again in christ.
oh so now u talking to me? well i'm :( with u!

evil people can't change i tell u, not in my eyes anyway, coz i never seen it happen either! If jesus wants to forgive a rapist, peadophile or someone who tortures or kills innocent people well that's up to him! everyone has their own opinion.

Don't worry...happens all the time.

I can be more boring, but I don't have time right now.

I'll just ask a question. If a person had a brain tumor that made them have fantasies about having sex with dead people, is that person evil? Without that tumor, they would be considered "normal" and "mentally healthy".(There's a reason I put those words in quotes)

We have bonfires in America all the time. We don't need a special day for that.
