    You have to remember.

    You can call 500 people. You only need 1 to fall for it and you win.

    I’m glad you take pride in the fact that you have managed to abuse your status as the majority religion to force it on everyone, but eventually your religious symbols are coming down from the courthouse.

    The humor of this is that you probably really do think you have some Constitutional ‘protection’ or something. You are one of those ardent defenders of what you imagine the Constitution to be.

    I’m almost to the point where I think Obama would let any tragedy imaginable happen if he thought he could look good in the aftermath the same way Bush looked good after 9/11

    Eugenics is a systematic government controlled system under which the widespread practice of sterilization is generally practiced.

    This is a discussion about individuals and choices they make, and how they can affect society.

    Are you really that short sighted that you have to find some random ‘evil word’ to cry? It’s like the liberals screaming racist every time somebody disagrees with Obama on anything.

    @Sparky

    Lack of belief is not the same as denial. A basic understanding of the language you apparently understand well enough to type would indicate that.

    I don’t believe aliens have ever visited our planet. I am not denying they have. I have no way of knowing if they have or haven’t, but I do not believe they have because I’ve never seen evidence indicating that they have.

    See how this works? Probably not.

    @Mick

    Indeed. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence and in that case there are a billion billion things you believe in just as strongly as you believe in god if that’s your standard.

    You, like your fellow idiot above you, do not understand the difference between ‘lack of belief based on lack of evidence’ and ‘denial’ of something.

    You have discovered that humans and tests conducted by them are fallible.

    I got a false positive on an HIV test once.

    From blood that didn’t even come from a human being.

    No, it isn’t. Eugenics is something else entirely.

    “that “bundle of cells” was NOT a tiny human”

    Actually I can, but I won’t. Why won’t I? Because I don’t know. What qualifies as alive from the view point of a human? Is a body with no head kept functioning by machine ‘alive’? Would a head with no body kept alive by a machine be alive, if it had all the human reasoning skills in tact? The strict definition of ‘alive’ in biology seems incapable of answering this question.

    ‘This man denies the existance of the Creator’

    This man denies no such thing. He says, as almost all atheists do, that there is no evidence for it and in the face of no evidence he does not believe in it.

    “Human life begins at conception.”

    How do you know this? Try answering the question without using religious woo woo because I don’t care what your answer is if that’s all you’ve got.

    You can do that and you will probably get away with it.

    For awhile.

    You will get caught, and you will get sued, and you will lose. The fact that you can be an immoral bigot for awhile doesn’t make it okay by the way.

    “Actually, Christians are not trying to force their beliefs onto you.”

    No, clearly, this thread is not full of people who want the law changed or exceptions made to it because they want the ability to discriminate because their religion says they can.

    Clearly Christians never try to push their religion in to schools, courts, and anything else it has no business in.

    I pay for my own healthcare, and I’m unlikely to ever need an abortion. I don’t like Obama anymore than you do. I’m fully aware that the IRS committed crimes just as I’m aware people would be in prison for it right now if a Republican administration were in charge. So on and so froth.

  • [1] August 29, 2014 at 9:25pm

    Yes, as I said ‘my religion says I can discriminate’, is not a valid excuse and repeatedly trying to say that it is ‘alright’ because your religion says so isn’t going to work.

    And I know how discrimination laws work. There’s a reason you can’t discriminate.

  • [2] August 29, 2014 at 9:22pm

    That’s not the sort of discrimination I’m talking about and you know it.

    the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of people

    : the ability to recognize the difference between things that are of good quality and those that are not

    : the ability to understand that one thing is different from another thing

    @Sparky101

    Your inability to actually understand the science I present when I choose to do so nor your unwillingness to believe it is not an indicator of my lack of knowledge on these subjects.

    Put simply, in deference to you: Just because you don’t understand what is going on does not mean it makes no sense.

    The arguments presented in God’s Not Dead are basically a laundry list of things Christians have been using for years and years, and have had put back in their face just as often. As I’ve told people here a few times, there is no ‘clever argument’ a creationist is going to pull out that I haven’t heard before. The arguments in God’s Not Dead aren’t even particularly clever, they’re just the sort of pandering nonsense that the movies target audience wants to hear and since its a work of total fiction, they don’t have to present an honest response to said arguments.

  • August 29, 2014 at 1:30pm

    Must be why the courts keep agreeing with me.

    ‘B-But activist judges’

    Yes, then explain why activist judges are ruling against the conservative stance on the Establishment clause but are ruling in favor of the conservative stance on the 2nd Amendment.

    It’s almost like they actually understand the original intent of both.

  • August 29, 2014 at 1:28pm

    That was such a poor attempt at dodging the question that I’m amazed you can even walk straight after being hit so squarely with it.

    The question was: Explain how your religion is not a cult

    That was the first part. Given the definition of a cult, explain how your religion is not a cult.

    The second part: Explain how atheism could be one.

    As the definition of an atheist as a person who does not believe in gods, this is not a statement of faith. This is a statement of lack of faith.

    Now if you want to talk about a non-rational belief system then try most religions.

    Um. No. Divorce is a failure on both parties most of the time.
