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.

Got some denial going there Darwin.
Two elements combined, and are once again, that brought the AIDS epidemic on gays.
1. Immoral sex.
2. Anal sex.
Now, explain why AIDS is spreading in Africa among heterosexuals, but did not in the USA. Originally heteros were primarily contracted AIDS by infected blood from gays.
Hey, by the way, I like Darwin!
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross culture constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior, making ss marriage an oxymoron.
Smile.
What do you define as "immoral sex"? If your definition is based on the Bible, then I reject it. The Bible is one of the most immoral books around. Using it as a standard of morality is a big mistake.

And you seem to be in denial that HIV is passed on by heterosexual sex as well. You seem to be focused only upon anal sex. Is there some personal passion going on there?

Plus you seem to have a view that the sole purpose of sex is for procreation. If you would pull your head out and actually think about your own experiences, do you have sex solely, or even predominantly, for the purpose of procreation? Or do you mostly have sex for the purpose of bonding emotionally with your mate?

And you are bringing up evolution to support your argument. Even though your view of evolution seems quite a bit off, the fact you seem to be supporting the idea of evolution makes you almost unique among the theistic posters on the thread.

Not long ago my brother’s dog attacked a little girl that wondered onto his property. It’s some kind of a part Pit Bull mix. He lives out in the country so he decided it was time to put a end to the dog’s life. He had his son come over with a 1911 45 handgun.
My nephew shot the dog point blank in the head. The dog went down, one shot, one kill. So they loaded up the body of the dead carcass and threw it in the back of the truck.
Then drove off a couple of miles down the road and dumped the body in the woods.
They came home and washed the blood out of the truck and that was that. Until about three days later the dog was on my brothers front porch, alive and well. Apparently the bullet hit the side of the dog’s fleshly part of its mouth and went out the other side.
The concussion from the blast wave knocked the dog clean out making it look like it was dead.[laughing], I renamed the dog “Lazarus.” Because it came back from the dead after three days. They decided to let Lazarus live after their botched execution.
The dog was fine and no long term injury from the gunshot.
Another explanation is that the dog was a fundamentalist christian; the bullet went through the skull with no meaningful effect since the skull was empty to begin with.........:

I think your blood is cold due to your advanced years :)
I recently almost had a dog kill me cat. It was a stray that we allowed in our yard. I thought I had everything under control but the dog busted through the screen door and damn near got my kitty cat. I ran in the house just as the dog's mouth was about the crush the cat's body. I jumped on this big ole Boxer Pit mix mutt and grabbed him by the jaw, rolled him over and pinned him to the ground. I held him there until my son could get the cat unglued from the screen door and my wife to get a rope and a collar.
Long story short, we sent his ass to the pound. And honestly, whether or not he got adopted is of no consequence to me.
I understand what you're going through with those pesky mutts. But please, if you feel you have to shoot them, don't wound them. Kill them so they don't suffer needlessly.
I absolutely detest lap dogs.

I am not going to kill them, or leave them with deep wounds to get infected. If they get wounded their owners can get them patched up. 3 pumps and a pellet at 50 foot or more will hurt them, but not as much as them killing my cats. Had a Chow a long time ago that charged a yard cat she grew up with less than 10 feet from me. Punctured the cat's lungs and it took a couple of minutes to die. The Chow was put down a few years later for similar behavior.

I spent several years keeping dogs confined to the yard even if they didn't want to be confined. That goes against everything I believe in, but is a necessary thing when living in a residential area. I didn't choose those dogs, just some I wound up having to take care of.

What I keep thinking of doing but haven't yet is cast wax pellets. 10 pumps and that will light the little bastards asses right up and shouldn't break the skin.

I can't get the sight of that fat assed Chihuahua mix trotting off yesterday. What a lovely target.

The sound of squealing Chihuahuas appeals to me.

I often regret not having the Topix Christian who stalked me at work arrested.
I’m not saying you weren’t stalked because these things do happen. I also have been stalked as a method of intimidation by a deviant who thought he was a mafia Godfather.

I made it be known in the community this man was stalking me. And I also made it known to him. If anything was to happen to me or my family he was going to be the main suspect. The entire community was aware what he was doing.

I also let him know. If by any chance guns came into play. I was not going to shoot to kill. I’d plan to aim right for his navel because there’s already a nice clean hole to start with. Then the bullet will travel to the spinal cord and permanently sever it.

The stalking stopped.

LOL. You probably think this because you don't know any more about atheism than Buck does. Rather than it some serious thought and try to learn the perspective of another, you meekly accept the definitions given to you by your religious authority figures.

Here's a news flash...the things your religious authority figures tell you are self serving.

No more Mister Nice Guy for old Dave.
I have a yard that is completely fenced in that I have two yard cats that spend almost all of their time in. It is their yard. They are pretty sweet fixed males that hold their own against others that have tried to move in. I like my cats even if they do snag a dove on occasion.
Yesterday morning I heard some growling outside and went to take a look. There were two small nastyassed little dogs and a big cream colored German Shepherd running around my back yard. I stepped out the door with my pellet gun and they took off, the little ones to the back and the shepherd toward the front. He was my main focus. He jumped a four foot fence like it was nothing to get away. The front gate was closed. That is the only unlocked gate to the property. The little two may have managed to get through some very tiny spots at the bottom of a privacy fence, but there is no way that shepherd could have. That means he had to jump the fence to get in.
With the intent of killing my cats. They didn't show up for feeding late yesterday. They finally came home this morning separately. Which saves me driving around looking for some dogs with bad intent.
I will secure the bottom of that privacy fence to a better degree, but until it gets warm enough to do so I have established a very good sniping position outside the bathroom window. Just hoping one or all of them decide to give it another try. No shooting at to disturb them like before, but shooting so they won't even come close anymore.
GRRRRRR!
Keep in mind some will prosecute you for killing animals. I would suggest a none lethal means. There's none-lethal shotgun ammunition that would do the job.

Also there’s slingshots, and paintball guns.

You are the one that doesn't understand atheism.

You didn't develop your thoughts on that subject by yourself. You bought a package of them being peddled.

Real atheists and atheism is an individual thing. You quote too much out of the book you bought.

You don't have the mental horsepower to have developed it on your own.

You are a fraud. A wannabe.

HIV is spread in poor and underdeveloped countries because religions like the Catholic religion, forbids the use of condoms. It also promotes the animal breeding mindset among to poorly educated and poverty stricken populous, combine the two and you have the rampart spread of HIV. The Catholic Church, besides being a criminal organization, shares a great part of the blame for the stance on contraceptives.
