“Another example of the absurdity of religion. They must think every believer of another slightly different religion is an infidel. Remind you of any other religion?

Perhaps the leaders should have asked themselves, "What would Jesus have done?"”

wafdof1 on Feb 7, 2013 at 19:41:05

“BINGO!

What would Jesus have done? He went among the sinners to have the opportunity to witness to them. HE GAVE HIS LIFE TO SAVE NON-BELIVERS! He didn't hide from them or refused to be with them. Thank you for your post!”

“Where in the constitution does it prohibit multiple parties?”

SocialTinker on Dec 1, 2012 at 03:00:29

“More than two parties are in effect disallowed because our constitution supports majority rule or winner-takes-all. So a proportional legislature is very hard to attain. We would need to elect our federal politicians on a national level, disregarding state boundaries. There still would only one president, however.”

“If anyone is trying to steal Christmas, it's the corporations who only see it as a reason to sell more and more stuff--the same kind of stuff that the corporation's apologists claimed Obama supporters wanted. Sort of a dichotomy; people that want stuff are to be condemned, but those that want to sell stuff are to be supported. Christianity and conservatism just don't make sense.”

“Using your term, how about absolute belief in gravity?”

notanaxkiller on Feb 14, 2013 at 06:58:46

“God controlls it, as he does everything. Gravity is a good example of how little we know.”

notanaxkiller on Feb 14, 2013 at 06:56:57

“Turns out there are four basic forces that hold the universe together, and out of
these four, gravity is the only one that doesn't make any sense.
Specifically, how it can be so incredibly weak and incredibly strong at the same
time. Gravity holds the entire universe together, and no matter how far out you
travel, it never completely disappears. And yet, it is the weakest force in existence. To illustrate, you know when you
bring two magnets near each other and they snap together? That force is actually
10^36 times stronger than gravity. Yeah, the technical term for that is "a
big-ass order of magnitude" stronger.

To add to the confusion, because all these other forces are controlled by
their own particles, it stands to reason that gravity should have its own
particles, too. But this hypothetical critter -- the graviton --
is basically the only one we haven't found yet, unlike
the particles that mediate a lot of the other important forces in nature,
which have been altogether more cooperative.
But the mother of all baffling gravity mysteries is that, once you get down
to the level of atoms and molecules and even smaller stuff, gravity just plain stops working. In fact, gravity is one of the
biggest reasons why quantum physicists and real-world physicists have nothing to
say to each other. We know more about what's inside an atom than we do about why
a ball comes back down when we throw it in the air.”

“Then why, if god does in fact create every person, does he create homosexuals? Simply to punish them? Is that your idea of a just god?”

Stop Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.

Stop Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.

Commented Feb 2, 2013 at 21:43:55 in Religion

“To stop celebrating Dr. King because he is primarily remembered for his success in reducing segregation in our nation, rather than for his other less successful efforts, would be similar to no longer celebrating great quarterbacks, or other sports greats, because of their failures, i.e., incomplete passes or strikeouts, etc. (Please note that it is not my intent to equate the accomplishments of Dr. King and sports heroes).

Let's instead use Martin Luther King Jr. Day to educate the nation on his additional beliefs regarding the causes and remedies of poverty and the dangers of militarism.”

Why Pray?

Commented Dec 4, 2012 at 00:08:51 in Religion

“How egotistical (and sad) that she could even think that her prayers could have "cancelled out another mother's prayers."”

AntithiChrist on Dec 4, 2012 at 03:24:58

“Well, if god answers proper prayers, as his kid promises he will all through the first 4 books if the NT...and...if two devout, god-fearing believers pray for the same thing - say two catholic girls praying for the same guy to ask them out on prom night - or two Christian soldiers on opposite sides of the front on the night before the big offensive, god has to make a choice doesn't he? Someone gets the not so hot nerdy date and someone gets blown up in battle.

It's all bunk of course, the prayer thing. Just sayin'.”

“Egotistical indeed to belive that the god will take her side.”

I am anti-religion, sure, but the Sunday School teachers I have known have been nice enough people...”
