Yes, it is simply a value judgment.
Humans invented him, they can certainly end him too
I've learned that a super high number of posts means a bunch of people got into a protracted pissing match. Not sure that's a badge of success, but it's been entertaining to tune in (and tune out of). There have, of course, also been thoughtful comments. Thanks for the inspiration!

I assume that is meant tongue-in-cheek.

Paradise is translated as "garden". The term existed for centuries before Koran.
My SO fits in the "what I really do" category. She's a crazy lady, but works her ass off. We've done a combo of school at home, and direct classes, for all 3 of them. Which equates to a lot more time together, meaning less time apart and more fights. But it's worked well and we'd do again.

?1) Gay marriage is not the baker's cause of his problems. His abject bigotry is. His decision to violate the law is.?
one SUIT vs dozens of ACCUSATIONS
You don't send science anywhere. And you don't because you don't have standing to make those decisions. You don't have the education, training, or experience to do so.

Is something moral or immoral independent of humanity and its opinions? If morality is objective, then we should think so, in the same way that a tree falling in the woods make a sound even if there is no one around to hear it. It seems to me that this makes morality inherently subjective; it only exists insomuch as humans are around to have an opinion about actions. Remove humanity and you remove any notion of "morality". You said so yourself: a cat's actions aren't moral or immoral but only amoral because it lacks the cognitive functions necessary to form complex human opinions.

Could not speak to that without actually reading the Code of Ethics, but I suspect that Divorce is not mentioned.
Charity IS a large part of the church ?business?.
Multiple democrats said that obama was born in Kenya. 2 of them printed it. Once on his own book!
So you dont have a father? Your mother conceived you with God directly?
Self-serving. You have condemned people because of their skin color.
He played the "better safe than sorry" and wanted no part of it. Even if he did suspect the child wasn't his, he didn't want the headache and its only suspicion.
If you say so?
No, my point is that Russell is just making a rhetorical argument that relies on circular reasoning. Russell himself is convinced the Christian God is implausible, but he doesn't support that claim of implausibility in any way. Instead, he comes up with the analogy between the Christian God and the orbiting teapot, as if they were equally implausible, but that analogy relies on the premise of divine implausibility itself. It's a circular argument.

As Abe Simpson said, my car gets 40 rods to the hogs-head and that's the way I likes it!
Oh propoganda? Yeah, ok. YOU go with that all you wish to. But there is no propoganda. They just report facts. They just report stories.
Am I having a problem? Yes, I am questioning traditional christianity. And yes, I have some strong opinions. But I am being open and honest about it. I dont see a problem. ???????
Christianity asks you to believe so many things with zero evidence. Atheism is a single belief, on a single subject.
Then why are you here?
I didn?t say that Merriam said that
