    Oh, thought I was done with you on the first page. You seem to have come back though. You’d have been better off staying in hiding however.

    It’s so cute to watch a theist try and find a way around an absolutely evil and disgusting deed in their Bible. I like how you try to dodge around the fact that women were treated like property, little more than slaves, in the Bible too.

    I mean really, you have to spend years and years white washing the crap in your head twisting it around, making it seem okay, oh it doesn’t ‘really mean that’, finding excuses and making excuses, all the while you know you’re wrong. You know that what is being described here is bronze age horrific barbarism which included brutal oppression of women.

    The Bible makes it pretty clear what the term ‘wife’ means and here you go trying to put things in there that it doesn’t say. Oh well she doesn’t ‘really’ become his ‘wife’, it’s totally ‘different’ unlike every other time this term is used. Just ignore the fact that this is not spelled out anywhere in the Bible, and it’s something a theist had to come along and make up later to excuse an atrocity in his holy book.

    The entire basis of this hinges around the fact that for all intents and purposes the Bible makes it pretty clear: Women are property. There’s a reason that a Marriage Certificate was recognized as a bill of sale in this country for a long time.

    You pray for me while I think for you. Sound good?

    Faith is belief without evidence and is typically defended against all reason.

    So yes, until something firmly planted in evidence is demonstrated to false one way or another, I will continue to form my opinions based on available evidence.

    You know, like everyone does for everything… Normally.

    Demonstrating once again that you really do need to learn what evolution even is before you can claim that it’s wrong.

    You also read that you should put rape victims to death if they are married or force them to marry their rapist if they were virgins.

    Do you actually do it?

    You’ve been arguing that science is wrong and that you know better for centuries.

    You haven’t been right yet.

    @Cookies
    1. What are you political beliefs? In a nut shell, limited government.
    2. Gun control? I’m a 2nd Amendment supporter.
    3. Capitalism v Socialism? Socialism is government run slavery.
    4. President doing a good job? Of destroying the country, sure.
    5. Political party? I normally vote Republican but there are Republicans I won’t vote for if they have particularly repugnant ideas (Santorum)

    Feel free to ask for an expanded explanation on any of those points or find new ones, it’s all good. Religious topics this time of the year get dull anyway. Having to explain the same things over and over again.

    So that’s what it is… White Privilege actually means Imaginary Racism.

  • [1] December 17, 2014 at 12:33pm

    I love it when people just glibly decry something as ‘wrong’ without explaining why.

  • December 17, 2014 at 12:32pm

    Occasionally I get people telling me I was never a Christian to begin with, and I humorously have to correct them while telling them they’re right.

    @LCDR

    Science no more refutes evolution than the man in the moon. Experiments are conducted every single solitary day that depend on an understanding of evolution to work, would you care to explain why they do actually work?

    Do you seriously think there are literally hundreds and hundreds of thousands of scientists from many different countries, cultures, and religious beliefs all collectively engaged in a massive conspiracy to “lie” to you about the evidence for the age of the earth and/or evolution?

    Science is not a conspiracy against your religion as much as you want to think so.

    Oh you’ve been getting talking points from creationist websites, how clever. Yes, your rudimentary LACK of understanding of thermodynamics clearly trumps the actual physicists and astrophysicists who have clearly never heard of these things and don’t know better than you how they work.

    Are you talking about physical or DNA mutations? Most DNA mutations are neutral, you’ve had hundreds of them in your life. Harmful DNA mutations are more common than helpful ones, but wouldn’t you know it, only the helpful ones get passed along.

    @Robot

    Oh you don’t understand subduction and obduction, you poor thing. The land masses of our planet have moved, risen, fallen, been reduced to ash, reformed, and crashed together again.

    The flood did not happen, there is no evidence for it, and it would require the suspension of multiple laws of physics and realities to work.

    @Robot

    Science does not assume anything. Only creationists form a conclusion in advance then look for what supports it. As the old web cartoon goes

    Science: “Here’s our results, what conclusion can we draw from this?”
    Creationism: “Here’s our conclusion, what results support it?”

    We “assume” that these elements started in a pure form? You don’t have any clue what so ever how dating techniques work do you? Even if what you said is correct, what… Every single solitary one we’ve ever found and tested is “wrong”? All of them? Really?

  • [1] December 17, 2014 at 10:34am

    No you see, injustice in all it’s forms actually bothers me. Injustice perpetuated in the name of religion bothers me even more.

  • December 17, 2014 at 10:31am

    I wonder how many people only give a crap about the injustice as long as it’s being worked upon a Christian?

  • December 17, 2014 at 8:17am

    @Godrulz

    What’s funny here is that YOU are being told live your beliefs and stop trying to force them on to others, and you treat this as if it is an affront. Christians being told to obey the same rules as everyone else is treated as ‘persecution’.

    So you’re going to say ‘what a good Christian nation we founded as’ and talk about… Native Americans? Do you have any idea how horrible this makes Christians look? What was done to the Native Americans was an atrocity that happened over and over again. Think before you post.

    @yerffej

    4.54 billion years would be the answer the evidence actually supports.

    @broziam

    Why would we waste time on things people made up without any evidence to support them? If you wanted to learn something, you could actually study real science.

  • December 17, 2014 at 7:56am

    Other than the fact that the flood didn’t happen and there was no Exodus from Egypt, and a variety of other things.

    Then there’s the fact that there are a ton of things that have never been confirmed at all and exist nowhere outside the Bible.

    ‘Oldest commentary in the world’

    There are so many things that predate the Bible in terms of history.

  • [1] December 17, 2014 at 7:53am

    I accept nothing on faith. Not a single solitary thing. I accept the love of others because they have demonstrated it. I don’t just assume or guess.
