Oh I knew some Christian would play the old No True Scotsman line of apologetic denialism.
I was a christian for 35 years. Even as a christian I always wondered, really? the only way to help us is by drowning babies?
Didn't you cry at the end of "El Cid" ?
Double negative, so...you think they really don't have something better?
I like the part about "God" making woman from man's rib part. It's magical. Never mind that Eve must have been a guy, too, because clones are identical genetic copies of the original. :D
How long before you create another screen name after being banned?
My point is that religious rituals can be restricted (not going to say "proscribed" again) by the government.
3.5 hours? They should let you phone that in.
There is a lot to unpack there. You have to start with our pattern seeking mind and realise how little we know about it. A simple dream could be considered a religious experience.

Well, I was extremely fundamentalist. I mentally walked myself through Romans 1 every time I saw a gay person, and asked myself, so when did they turn away from God, and then progress to hating God, and then progress to be turned towards homosexuality by God along with a warped mind? In that light, I could look at the proud openness of homosexuality here in America and truly think, this is not something that God is going to judge; it's a sign that God has already judged us with rampant immorality and licentiousness as people parade themselves on the way to Hell. So I too am embarrassed by my old way of thinking, to say the least.
I find the gestalt of the articles at
No, they don't, but enjoy your delusion
Most religious conventions seem silly to the outsider (no pork, beef, what have you; no contraception; no sex; and so on) but those Mormon garments take the silly prize. What woman would want to wear them
I dont think you know what strawman means.
Well we all know what works best for our own personal growth. Keep on growin' on!
Of course we know smoking causes cancer. We have known that for years. Of course other things do as well.
Lets look at Gen 1:
You do realize that's an urban legend with absolutely no basis in fact, right?
LOL! "Abortion is a consequence of an action"? That's rich, and disgusting at the same time.
What do you propose as a more accurate tool?
Its really the same, metaphor after metaphor.
You consider yourself petty for that? Okay. Than I must be SUPER petty! xD
WTF is hashbrown casserole and how TF can I get some?!
Last sentence says it all. Stay well.
Interesting discussion. He talks about empty space. Space cannot exist if there is nothing. Nothing is nothing, not space with nothing in it. How can he miss this point?
