You stated:"Jim Jones was a Christian as were Bruce Lee, David Berkowitz, Jeffrey Dahmer, Sampson Kanderayi -
Atheism is or has become a religion. Instead of God, they give an impression that their leaders are worshipped, adored and given proper or collective tribute. The sad thing is they are so proudly atheist that they try to dominate all topics about religion.
I hate your insistence to be respectful. What is it that we are supposed to respect about religion? Do you respect flat earthers, their belief is, like religion, based on unsubstantiated wishful thinking, too.
You are making a good case for the Death Penalty for murderers. It solves the problem permanently.
[The sound of Googling to see if these guys are creationists...]
Looks like I did. Mea culpa
I am a Christian but will admit that was very well said. I am not supporting any side here. I have a respect for well presented, non inflammatory nor profane arguments.
"No" is tantamount to zero, I gather.
So a non-science site quoting deniers.
God love ya, TS, but why should I walk on eggshells and hide the Truth for the sake of ?not offending?? As this is an online debate forum and not a social network, I tend to sway on the scholarly side as opoosed to the social graces I would apply at a party. While I do realize that I?m taking to other humans with feelings, I?m also going to say what I believe and feel and know. I?m entitled to be myself just as much as everyone else. I make no judgement on individual persons, but I will discuss all of our ideologies. Since there is only one God, there can be only one objective Truth according to Him. That is why heresies and schisms are important topics, because both parties rely on falsehoods to write their dogmas.
I do like a nice pair of plums....
That's like asking someone who doesn't have hands why they refuse to pickup things off the floor or why an infant doesn't stop crying when it disturbs other people. Not being capable of reason or healthy objective review doesn't make a position untenable. Its like asking why this doesn't apply to your cat.
Neither do we.
What did we try? You mean tried treating woman like people?
Should we close the orphanages then?
I have my personal opinions on how I would have designed life, but I'm just a guy.
