By "hubris" do you mean you have no facts to support your contention?
Isn't it hubris to expect people to believe you when you cannot support your arguments?
I like the word "hubris." It has such an interesting sound when spoken. It seems to be coming back into more frequent useage and I think that is good. "Haughty" is another word I like that you don't here or read as often these days. Perhaps there are racial connotations to it that I don't quite comprehend that have resulted in its diminished use. Much like uppity has taken on a peculiar cultural patina of disdain.

Anyway, I like "hubris."

Of course not. What you should do is read and understand the bible.
Hosea 13:16
In context, that verse says what danger is there for ephraim a tribe of isreal, if they forsake god.

It is not an authorization to kill infants or innocents, it is a statement of what will happen if Ephraim leaves the protection of god.

Merely saying they will fall victim to invasion.
Makes sense

Why don't the atheists evolve and stop engaging the the fantasizers in this useless topic?

Seriously, there are almost 60,000 posts and no one is convincing anyone. It's proof of the stupidity of humans.

According to the Bible it's okay to kill pregnant women in the name of God, so long as they are not Christian. Makes one think God isn't pro life, least when it comes to non-believers.

I understand, and agree with the point you're trying to impart here, but the book of Hosea is an OLD TESTIMENT book, pre-Christ. There were no "Christians" in the Old Testiment.

"Faith"?

Ever heard of the unfortunate schoolteacher Cayetano Ripoll?

"Faith" led to his hanging for heresy, the last executed victim _in Spain_ of the Spanish Inquisition.

1826.

That's a mere 188 years ago.

1826.

Morey's patent for the internal combustion engine.

Beethoven's String Quartet in C sharp Minor.

The first real photograph.

And effin' "faith" is still hanging people for "heresy".

Way to hang on to the Dark Ages.

Ergo, watch for another round of chumming the "water". Pure abstraction, poop!!!

Logically speaking, this is a time to focus on ambiguous metaphors, but expect biblical mumbo-jumbo. The status-quo is everything.
Scientific method is far more than popular opinion.

Mitt Romney are you like your namesake? Who is your namesake? Did Elizabeth Barret Browning Create hime? Overful of what is....

oh. you're someone else? anywho focus.
If cousin Romney pleased to walk with me.
We read, or talked, or quarrelled, as it chanced;
We were not lovers, nor even friends well-matched-
Say rather, scholars upon different tracks,
And thinkers disagreed; he, overfull
Of what is, and I, haply, overbold
For what might be.
But then the thrushes sang,
And shook my pulses and the elms' new leaves,-
And then I turned, and held my finger up,
And bade him mark that, howsoe'er the world
Went ill, as he related, certainly
The thrushes still sang in it.-At which word
His brow would soften,-and he bore with me
In melancholy patience, not unkind,
While, breaking into voluble ecstasy,
I flattered all the beauteous country round,
As poets use ...the skies, the clouds, the fields,
The happy violets hiding from the roads
The primroses run down to, carrying gold,-
The tangled hedgerows, where the cows push out
Impatient horns and tolerant churning mouths
'Twixt dripping ash-boughs,-hedgerows all alive
With birds and gnats and large white butterflies
Which look as if the May-flower had sought life
And palpitated forth upon the wind,-
Hills, vales, woods, netted in a silver mist,
Farms, granges, doubled up among the hills,
And cattle grazing in the watered vales,
And cottage-chimneys smoking from the woods,
And cottage-gardens smelling everywhere,
Confused with smell of orchards.'See,' I said,
'And see! is God not with us on the earth?
And shall we put Him down by aught we do?
Who says there's nothing for the poor and vile
Save poverty and wickedness? behold!'
And ankle-deep in English grass I leaped,
And clapped my hands, and called all very fair.

In the beginning when God called all good,
Even then, was evil near us, it is writ.
But we, indeed, who call things good and fair,
The evil is upon us while we speak;
Deliver us from evil, let us pray.

Yes but Christians follow the Old Testament, probably because Christianity started as an offshoot of Judaism.

That you like to fit things into nice neat little boxes whether or not it's accurate.

If evangelicals can choose to believe that the Earth is 6,000 years old and that men lived while dinosaurs did, despite evidence to the contrary, then I can interpret The Word however I want.

You are merely proving that your ethics are worse than what a Christian is taught to do.
YOu Choose to use what you call hypocrisy in order to justify your own Hypocrisy...while a christian has absolutely no room to be a hypocrite.
When the temptation to have self-pity and or react to the sin we view as against ourselves by sinning further while being in the 'right' because of the wrong actions of another...we forget that sin is against God...even that which we thought was more against us than Him...is all grouped and hurts Him the most and based on His power of Forgiving{...because it is in the past tense that He forgave the future sins...} we might grasp the reality that forgiveness is a need that is provided through faith.
