That would make Genghis Khan one of the worst monsters of history, and the eruption of essentially stateless nomads from the Eurasian steppe one of most violent events of human history."
Now *that* is what is Unbelievable!
We must assume that June and Mike can cite from the same set of atheist morality rules that Genghis Khan did. Yes, UNBELIEVABLE!

I believe that if dogs have no soul or spirit... then that would also be my basic make-up.

I hope that when I die, I will simply be no more than a gust of dust in the wind, and hopefully I will leave a few people behind who will think of me as a person who tried in my own way to be fair.

The pope ordered the killing of all other believers as evil heretics.

You have some nerve pointing fingers at other dictators.

I can't speak for Michael, but I have never ordered the killing of others.

Unbelievable!
All humans are in religion for they believe is in it for their selves.

It's human nature to be self-oriented.

Your faith doesn't seem to bring you much peace.

So much for trying to reinvent the faith of others.

You are right - I cannot - but I was only trying to help help you so you can improve upon your posting in the future. In other words, giving you the nudge to post your links when you post your thoughts.

C'mon Rabbi - you are better than this.

And I get this....just for trying to help. Yep - your post is a great example of Christianity at work, huh!?

Yeah ... but did they first "come" from heaven as spirits created in Ramen's divine image???

I want to know the truth of that matter, and as you are speaking on behalf of Ramen, the creator ... please do tell all.

P.S.

Please don't make your sermon to long, as I'm intent on watching Judge Judy to see who she is berating as idiots today.

.....195 catholic diocese in america. Catholic priests were caught in the vast majority of these dioceses. That means Anthony the vast majority of bishops lied and covered up for the KNOWN 4%.
.....we all know the real number is much higher than 4%, but you just keep defending these numbers. Tip of the iceburg.
.....,How many non molesting priests knew of the molesting priests and did and reported nothing? You just keep making up excuses.
....where has this holy spirit been all these years? HUH!
Unbelievable!
Your questions aren't exactly clear-cut. I'll have to defend the non-guilty priests here, but only in "how many knew" type of questioning.

One could change the names in your question and use Penn State names and staff in substitute of bishops - and get a wide variety of answers.

Not everyone knows what others are doing, even if it seems like it is right under their noses.

June VanGollum, that's something Jesus taught. Why would you adopt His "philosophy"?

No, as an atheist it would make uncommon sense to use a Christian teaching as your rule for morals.

You're either stumped and have no answer to my question or you're a phony, just like Mike.

Catholics rules are that priests are to be celibate and live holy lives and bishops are to turn over priests who break these rules with minors to the civil authorities. A very small percentage broke those rules. Yeah, that was wrong. Anything else Mike?

Did you read the Yahoo article today about a priest (I think in Minneapolis) who was guilty of abusing boys...but was determined to have a 'disability', and received support payments, etc. I was going to post it but it was just too long.

Anthony (in multiple feet of) MN (snow) asked this question:

"what set of "rules" does an atheist such as yourself utilize when attempting to determine the morality of an action you might take? "

New Age writes:

You know Anthony is a great question for anyone.

Why? Because you will get to see, if answered, the many different perceptions a person has in regard to a certain belief.

If I took the time to place these steps in chronological order, I bet that I would probably come up with - if not the exact steps, very similar ones - that you would take for the same action.

Don't you agree.

So let's get some clarification in your question before anyone starts to answer....

"What set of rules" .....
- What are you referring to? Are they the ones you get to live your life by through your own choices or are they the religious ones that other men have told you to live your life by? This is very important to the answer one will make.

....'do you" (paraphrased from above)....
"utilize when attempting to determine the morality of an action you might take?"
- when you post "attempting" and "utilize" in the same sentence, as you did, you do realize that you have already formulated an opinion of the person you are questioning, therefore not really allowing the other person to post to you, what you would find as valid.

It is a loss either way for the responder.....unless you already have a preconceived notion of what the answer should be.

If so that is being biased, and even though someone posts an opinion, it still falls short of what you expect.

Sly......are you, Catholic.
