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.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
The message comes from the church, and its interpretation of scripture, not mine. I cannot tell you which scriptures it is leaning on for that, or how it comes to the conclusion that it must demonize gays
I also cannot tell you why it is more hostile to gays than to adulterers, for example, specially given that one of the Ten Commandments mentions adulterers, but not gays, so, it appears that it doesn't require a sound scriptural basis for any of its teaching. Where does the bible say that it contains no errors, or that it is only inspired by a god rather than the precise words of one?
But neither of us is a bible scholar, so perhaps we shouldn't be discussing what the bible means anyway. Your rule - unless you meant that to apply only to me.
Let's keep this simple and cut to the chase.

What is the homophobic Christian message you're talking about?

And what churches preach it?

I think that depriving people of happiness at no cost to yourself isn't just selfish - not if you don't benefit. Christians want to punish gays for defying their god, because that's what they believe that their god does. Ill will for others is malice to me.

No, we haven't. You avoid the question like it's the plague.

You're only answer is some elusive message that Christian doctrine teaches.

You don't answer it.

Wait sorry one more comment,we are Intolerant,WHAT,your the haters,your the ones who go around with your filthy mouth cursing God,call a doctor quick your head is spinning and your spitting green slime...
Yes intolerant, to the extent of over 800 million deaths/murders/genocides in the name of gods, that’s 10 times the amount you try assigning to atheism and of course you ignore the facts that several of the supposed atheist you accuse of genocide were actually christians or christian educated

Don’t give me that BS about atheist haters. I have born the brunt of christian hatred since I was a child. Hounded out of church for being different, spat on by christians for my choices, the attempted murder of my children by christians and my injury by christian bombers. Never ever have I had an atheist try and mock, injure or kill me or my children so don’t; give me any of that hater sh|t

Honey you have chosen the wrong person to vomit you lies over, I realise you are quite new here so you are excused but be aware that if you consider facts and truth to be hatred then that’s entirely up to you but don’t be upset when you stick your foot in your mouth

I know you don’t know, that’s why I gave you the answer to the question you asked. Or perhaps you want the answer in joules or perhaps you want it breaking down to the various tykes of radiation? So does this include negative energy?
As I said – about 46 billion light years, this is the standard scientific observation of the size of the observable universe. You can uses the 13,8 billion years age of the universe and the Hubble constant to work this out if your gun scope is not powerful enough to see that far. Recent measurements have shown that space (other than effects of gravitonal lensing) is not curved so it follows space is infinite. That does not mean that the energy/matter resulting from the BB 13.8 Billion years ago is infinite, only that the volume it can expand into is infinite. There is also (at least mathematically) the possibility of an infinite number of infinite such spatial volumes but I advise you don’t even think about that, you have a hared enough time with the origins of your chistmas.
Like I said, no one knows the size of the universe, except ChristineM from Topix.com .

Imagine that.
You have not named the god your were discussing and there are over 3700 such gods in various mythologies. I have asked you before why you should consider me a mind reader and so far that is yet another question you are completely at a loss to answer.
I have told you which god I believe in a thousand times.

I have no god to name, God doesn't have a name.

To be clear and avoid any further confusion, I believe in God, the one from the Christian Bible.

Dumb ass.

Tell me when did science invent skin, was it 300 or 400 thousand years ago? oh hang on, skin goes back a lot further than humans, how about in the Triassic – nope further back …
Sorry buddy there was no science in prehistoric times
However I suggest you re-read my post, notice “It did however provide methods and techniques to prepare whatever basic materials, wool, oil etc”
Science has enabled the genetic modification of sheep to provide more abundant, more easily processed wool
lol

There it is again.

Science gave us wool.

Seriously, I want to call him and thank him.

Wool is awesome.

Thanks you, Science!

2,000 years ago, some guy walked in and overturned tables and coins...saying something about a den of thieves.
Catholics quietly ignore that part...

How 'bout this one.
Gays think the christian church hates them because they espouse the doctrine that homosexuality is a grave sin, punishable eternally, when all other sins are matters of choice, while the person who is gay was likely born gay, and that is no different than being punished eternally for being born with a deformed limb.
How is that any different than Christians believing they are hated by non-Christians because they espouse that your beliefs are wrong?

A few posts above someone (I assume Christian) espoused that hopefully other countries will soon follow Uganda in imprisoning gays for life...is that hatred? What if a non-Christian espoused...imprison Christians for life...would that be hatred?

Ehm, nope, guesses based on bronze age ignorance, fallacy and mythology prove nothing.
Actually yes, US PEOPLE can answer that and have been answering that since it’s discovery. What is the problem here is that YOU PEOPLE ignore the facts
Actually I can prove (much to the consternation of certain godbots on here) that the god described in KJV, revelation 19:6 cannot exist in this universe at the same time as you so where does that leave you?
However there is the point that once again, those certain YOU PEOPLE ignore the facts and pretend that it will all go away if they ignore it hard enough
Seems to me that you have a faith built on ignorance but hey, you are welcome to it
Io Saturnalia
You cannot prove any such thing.

And if you could, you would not be disproving a creator god.

Those are not facts you offer.

They are musings - products of your silly ass arrogance.

Your small bit of education has served to make you an arrogant, know-it-all, bumbling bundle of crap.

He does not believe "Jesus" is God.

Odd lack of belief for a "Real Christian".
