Not even drowning everyone, men, women, children, babies, fetuses, which Christians hold in higher regard than live children.
The majority of Christians and Muslims are not fundamentalists either - and don't actively seek converts. It is only the most devout who do that.
I love the way you think, sir.
No I don't, once I'm through the comments and have said my piece I just reply through my message box.
Well, I?m w/Einstein.
I'm not going to get in a pissing match with you.
Actually yes they are.
Yup. So deep in the soup he doesn't care.
SB. To your last paragraph, I think that human reason and human imagination are not actually separated from each other but very different in the application and effectiveness. I offer that most folks can as they mature control their imaginations and feelings enough to ?prioritize? for the intellectual reasoning more and wishful believing less.
This has been shaking the credibility of the RCC for sometime and with this conviction coming off the back of the 34 bishops who offered to resign in Chile for their failure to report child abuse it is another blow. If they want to improve their credibility this hunting down of paedophiles in their ranks need to continue with vigour and with clinical calculation and those who covered it up should be treated as complicit and as guilty as those who committed the crimes. I am not religious or a believer in gods although I do come from a Catholic background I have no connection with the RCC. That said, it would be wrong to tar the whole organisation and every priest with this brush. Religions are not the only hiding place for these vile creatures, they are in any walk of life that gives them access to children.
I hope he's wrong!
I dunno, it's kinda hot watching a woman ff her man until he's short of breath :)
Contrary to what you think, they don't come from god. God commands like you do to your dog. Those aren't morals
"Exactly or don't you think Christian slave owners thought they where moral?"
We can only perceive 4% of the universes and that is a grandiose figure. To assume so much... never forget the flat landers.
Hey Boudie - I noticed a screencap with your name in Hope Not Hate's recent report on Breitbart. Page 27 (download link at bottom).
You- "The minds of yesteryear..." How poetic you wax. You mean those courageous souls like Newton who had recurrent nervous breakdowns since he had little insight into the spiritual growth training, as I explained above? Those would be the ones that that modern Therapeutic Psychologists have confirmed as healthy. Then there is C Huygens who was also plagued by depression, Einstein?s rather craven emotional abandonment of his second wife as she was dying, and atheist Philosopher M Ruse?s assessment of R Dawkin?s as rather ill-informed about Religion.
There are receptions for polygamous weddings. Same-sex marriage was not yet legal in Colorado when the couple in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case went to order their cake.
Secular argument (not "atheist") for morality is very simple and totally objective. Morality is a measurement of how much harm you inflict or help you give to other people. Moral judgement comes from the victims of the harm you cause. Causing harm is immoral. Not causing harm is ammoral (unless you enhance freedom for others by doing nothing) and helping others is moral. Harm is measureable and objective. How you feel about the harm is subjective but it doesn't matter how people feel about it. You just need to avoid causing objective harm.
I disagree there
In order to twist it, one needs to actually understand it. You, obviously, didn't.
I shall refer to you in the diminutive and there is nothing you can do about it, son. Your demeanor requires it.
WHAT?!!! Agreement among Christians is not what brings salvation nor is ones egotistical estimation of their intellect. 1Cor.15:1-4.
It was not anecdotal. An anecdote is:
Not almost anything. Your argument is that we don't know everything, so we must know nothing.
