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.

I don`t want to force anyone week or strong, I accomplish alot alone, you are unraviling calm down.If the only choice i had was to be so angry like you. i would be alone and good. But i feel Good!!!! I just do to my grammer mis speal my acconplishment that i personally accept no one can rival It Is GOD!!!! You in short is the ?????
According to your holy book, I rival God. I am far more compassionate, much more moral, and have never harmed my children. As a matter of fact, I'm more moral than most characters in your holy book.

If you believe in something without evidence then you are delusional, there is no third choice. Personal experience is NOT proof. Neither is seeing Jesus in a peanut butter sandwich.

Here's how it works. If I mumbled some words over my pancakes in the morning hoping to turn them into Elvis, you'd think I was totally insane. But if I do the same in Church over a cracker, I'm just a Catholic.

That's be as accidental as a pot smoker doing the same. Or a Big Mac eater dropping the pickle.
That's irrelevant.
Pot impairs the smokers motor functions & reaction times more than alcohol does. Tobacco doesn't impair you at all.
That's why it's illegal to drive impaired by alcohol or pot. Sometimes law makers get it right.

The War on Drugs was lost long ago. I can buy any illegal drug I want right now with a phone call. I can't walk into a store and buy alcohol. They ask for ID.

No tax on alcohol? Gasoline? Yachts? Cigarettes?

And hey, I said sales. Let's grow our own!

What makes you think that was a loss?
Who do you think controls the flow of these drugs in the USA?

The same people who control the flow of Chinese made toys into Walmart. If I'm a consumer, I don't care. If I want to buy drugs, I go to the people who sell drugs. If I want a Chinese made toy, I go to the people who sell Chinese made toys. If somebody declares war on the influx of those products and I can still buy them then that war is lost.

<quoted text>I understand what you're saying, I do.

My only problem with legal drugs is the ease of getting them. By keeping them illegal it makes it hard to get your hands on - and you risk jail or prison time for it. It deters some users to quit & it deters some from ever starting.

I'm fine with people using drugs casually. But that's the problem with a lot of folks, they can't use drugs in moderation, they allow it to control their lives. Excessive drug use leads todo many problems, I think if they were to become legal, there'd be a lot more addicts out there.

I'd kinda rather have drug lords in charge of their addicts than the federal government. That's a disaster of biblical proportions waiting to happen.

In my opinion, of course.
Your opinion stinks.

Oh, so God DIDN"T kill all of the Egyptian first born males!!!! See, I always thought he had, but I guess the bibles wrong on that point.

Oh, and he NEVER flooded the planet killing countless babies!!!!! See, I always thought the Noah story supported that, I guess the bibles wrong again!!!!! I wonder how many more errors there are?

Well..Christianity is growing, which is good. But only Jesus really knows how many of these Christians are authentic Christians that have a spiritual relationship with Him...and who the false hypocritical Christians are that have fallen away or only have a title "christian", own a bible, and go to church.
You believe in Jesus? is Jesus your personal Lord and Savior and the only God you serve? or do you just believe in Jesus because of his teachings? they are not the same thing. Many people believe Jesus existed and agree with His teachings, but that alone does them no good.
Only the "megachurches" are growing, all others are vanishing. At best it could be said that your religion is the same as it's ever been, but in reality the news is better, the number of "nonbelievers" is on the rise, and the trend is pretty impressive.

It depends on your physiology, really. Even cigs can inebriate some people, though that's extremely rare. The real matter is that we can't know what drugs will have what effects until someone takes them, so, since it's hit and miss anyway, why make the natural ones illegal at all? It doesn't make sense to be picking and choosing battles that likely waste money anyway.
