Well, that is certainly comforting.
When Stalin was killing millions of Christians, he was only trying to revive them.
Great work, Chris Stalin.
This is why we take your scholarship so seriously.
As in,...
Bwahahahahahahahahahahahah...
Why the fook do you keep harping on with the christians

Why can you not tell the facts as they were in unadulterated, unabridged for the christian sensibility

Try “When Stalin was killing millions”, it’s far more accurate and does not stink of godbot propaganda.

You did not have to be christian. But wait a moment… Christians are closer you your belief than muslims and hindus and non religious and everyone else he was murdering so they are the only ones who count for you – right?

Because it doesn't conform to their lies.
That is the problem with most religions. They have to ignore reality constantly.
"The most beautiful religion on Earth can be destroyed by a single ugly fact."
It is mandatory for the religious to ignore facts and follow "The Traditions".
They hate the fact that Stalin, Hitler, Radovan Karadzic, Ratko Mladic, Adam Lanza, James Holmes, Anders Behring Breivik etc were/are christian, it upsets there sensibilities. But it does not stop people like buck beating people up juts for fun, such god like behaviour he displays. It does not stop the hatred and spite offered to anyone who does not agree with their lies

Yeah, yeah. We know. The "facts" say Staliin liked Christians and their church.
Right?
That's why he only killed 10 million of them.
If he hadn't liked them, he would have really gotten rough.
Bwahahahahahah...
Just like Hitler the Christian murdered 6 million Jews, right ?

Science has theories which in the religion world people call them faith. What one believes doesn't make him a fool, just as what one doesn't believe makes him intelligent. One last thought..... If a Christian is wrong about creation, they have lost nothing; if a non-believer is wrong, what have they lost?
Nothing.

The ones that were pond scum then turned into fishies then later turned into land animals then later turned back into really big fishies.
But what sense would it make for a land creature to evolve back into a water creature and not grow some friggin gills?
Geppetto breathed life into them.

No wait, that was porpoises ... or was it tadpoles?

Your social engineering instincts need some tweaking. Less emotion and unrealistic belief in the holiness of mankind.
Strength and advancement of any social group is through organization and striving for higher goals. This is how one culture beats another for resources. Evolution. Your thought seems to be to cater to the lowest common denominator among all groups, empowerment of the groundlings, diseased, and disabled to shape the course of human development. You won't get off the planet that way, little one. Your world will become one big Jerry Springer show.
Oh, you think because you are "educated", and an "educator" you will be one of the elite to lead the masses. You will be wrong.
Wow. See, this is why I don't bother w/topix anymore. You:

- don't address your unusual, original position
- don't back up your unusual, original position
- misuse the word evolution
- fail to understand how evolution applies to social animals
- say something stupid and offtrack about my emotions. I assume that's projection, since it doesn't fit at all.

Wait...wait...wait...Dave. Right. Enough said.

I'm glad you're well Dave :)

So now you think he murdered people because he liked them?

It is estimated that he killed over 20 million people and in a country that was, pre revolution, predominantly christian then it seem that you got away pretty light

Try rehearsing your facts before sticking your foot in your mouth

Jeez you are s selective in your narrow minded

I believe the spread of HIV is caused by a growing lack of morality, specifically the morality of sex. I think people are far too carefree in how they view the openness of sex.
First, you're ignoring the role of economics, poverty and inequality entirely.

Second, you are failing, utterly, to consider how peoples outside of your culture are.

Third, you're projecting a Western, Christian and American cultural perspective onto the world. That's just thoughtless and ignorant. There really is nothing else to add. If you can't see beyond your own nose, you have nothing to say about global issues.

Hey hidingfromme, how are you?
Just a question, why is HIV infection radically increasing among gays, the very group we have spent billions educating, and even more medicating?
Smile.
<quoted text> You did not answer his question. From you reference.
----------
In 2010, the estimated number of new HIV infections among MSM was 29,800, a significant 12% increase from the 26,700 new infections among MSM in 2008.
----------
That is a 12% increase. That is not maintaining. That is increasing.
<quoted text> Immoral? Anybody immoral who does not see things the way you do? Child logic. Besides you completely ignored KiMare's question?
That's not a "radical increase" which is what you claimed. That's a pretty linear increase - or below that.

A radical increase would be more like a geometric one, a doubling of numbers. So you're exaggerating for your position.

It's not child logic to chastise you for your ethnocentric, bigoted religious position. It's decency.

OK, I'm almost ready to be an atheist now.

So you are saying that because science does not know the answer to something you are justified in guessing that a god did it by magic out of nothing?
