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 disagree. Printmaking is an art that produces multiple copies by its very nature. Using technology to reproduce a work of art does not detract from the artistry that went into making the original. A piece's merit lies in its beauty and expressiveness, not the means by which it came to be.

I see. So you are supposed to love your wife while she subjugates herself completely to you. It's like slavery, but with a pretty bow on top.
A wife has ownership of the husband. I think a lot of men would claim they are the slave to the woman, lol.

<quoted text>I thought the Scripture would have had a bit more of an impact LOL; JESUS told Mary to go to the Disciples and pass on His message ~ as I said, if it is good enough for JESUS, well, it is good enough for me IMO
Mary may have been a messenger, but she was in no way authorized to interpret or discuss. She ran an errand. As a servant. Perhaps an important servant, but a servant nevertheless. If that is good enough for you, then I am sorry for you. I really am. There is absolutely no rationale for making women second-class citizens. Period.

Yet why must you be subjugated to the man? Why can't you be equals, mutually agreeing who will be responsible for which tasks?

Sounds to me more like you can't rationalize it. That's a good first step toward recovery.

What difference does that make? God could not simply forbid slavery as evil? God managed to find time to condemn eating shrimp as an abomination. Is God forced to conform to human custom? Who is in charge?

Care to recant?
Psalm 115:4-8
King James Version (KJV)
4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
Well, if you are asserting that this passage covers all other Gods, then you've just pointed out another Biblical inaccuracy. Nice going?

Now, about God being jealous...

Hitlers "love" of Christianity is apparent:
10th October, 1941, midday
"Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure." (p 43)
14th October, 1941, midday
"The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death.... When understanding of the universe has become widespread... Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity....
"Christianity has reached the peak of absurdity.... And that's why someday its structure will collapse....
"...the only way to get rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little....
"Christianity <is> the liar....
"We'll see to it that the Churches cannot spread abroad teachings in conflict with the interests of the State." (p 49-52)
13th December, 1941, midnight
"Christianity is an invention of sick brains: one could imagine nothing more senseless, nor any more indecent way of turning the idea of the Godhead into a mockery.... <here insults people who believe transubstantiation>....
"When all is said, we have no reason to wish that the Italians and Spaniards should free themselves from the drug of Christianity. Let's be the only people who are immunised against the disease." (p 118-119)
14th December, 1941, midday
"Pure Christianity-- the Christianity of the catacombs-- is concerned with translating Christian doctrine into facts. It leads quite simply to the annihilation of mankind." (p 119 & 120)
9th April, 1942, dinner
"There is something very unhealthy about Christianity." (p 339)
Hitler sees Christianity the same way some of you atheists do.
This is all taken from " http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler 's_religious_views"

So you skip over the pages and pages of pro-Christianity speeches given by Hitler and go down to the DISPUTED quotes from supposed table talks.

That's real desperation.

Do I support slavery?
You do realize that slavery continues today even in our country. There are young girls who were drafted into prostitution and some were smuggled here for that purpose. My answer is absolutely a no, past, present or future.
In my own family history we had family members on both sides of the issue pre and post civil war. The Bible does talk about slavery but you must understand it was a legal and accepted practice at the time. It’s a historical fact but in Jewish history there were limits on slavery.
Another point Atheist seem to forget. In Jewish Biblical history the Children of Abraham were also slaves including Joseph who rose in rank in the Egyptian government.
Eagle, God has the power to stop slavery, he could have made it illegal, you know.

But what i don't get is, how can the bible be for slavery if Moses freed the slaves?

You must understand that this "Biblical History" is mythology.

But, be that as it may, what you are really saying is that either:

1 -- your deity did not realize that slavery was a bad thing and therefore never spoke out against it

OR

2 -- Christian morals have changed over time and you do not really use the Bible as you ultimate guide to morality.

OR

3 -- all of the above.

Well, more specifically, Moses supposedly freed the *Jews* from Egyptian slavery. So it's OK to enslave some people, but not others.

Fun fact: there is actually no objective evidence that the Jews were ever systematically enslaved by the Egyptians, nor is there any evidence for a mass exodus of between 2-3 million people from Egypt either.
