Ol' Rick asserts:
"You are an atheist, you have no idea what the teachings of Christ involve."

Gosh, Rick
I guess you're just as simple-minded as your postings suggest.

Rick: You are an atheist, you have no idea what the teachings of Christ involve

* Not everyone who is now an atheist was always an atheist.

Plus, teachings from a 2000 year old book are not exactly relevant to modern science.

Doctor Who says:
That is exactly the problem with both your mindset and theology.

Quantum mechanics works completely independently of belief. There is absolutely no element of belief or faith required. Anyone who rejects quantum mechanics is therefore not qualified to teach it.

The bible on the other hand demands belief. There is no source other than the bible to confirm the major events of the bible. In fact, events like the conquest of Judea by Joshua is directly contradicted by archaeology which shows that it was a series of internal revolutions over several generations, not an invasion. The bible requires interpretation based on the beliefs of the reader.

One can understand the bible including several interpretations without accepting it as there is no evidence for it. Quantum mechanics on the other hand has more than a century of careful experiments to back it up.

I don't believe in evolution, but I teach it.

Because evolution isn't a matter of belief, it's a matter of assessing the evidence. And there is plenty of evidence for evolution.

I don't believe that the sun will rise tomorrow, either.

"Except being that you cant.
Seeing as Science has forsaken you, right guys?"

Nope --- still around 1000 articles published per month that I ought to read. Evolutionary biology has never been healthier.

"Fellas this is getting old. "

We can ALL agree with that.

Science is a tool by which we understand how the universe works.

It could no more forsake us than could our screwdrivers.

My late grandpa was a homosexual and made 8 kids. Homosexuals reproduce all the time.

OMG, now they're trying to claim that homosexuality is a "birth defect"? How far will some people go to make sure that those they despise are kept in a social limbo?

Well, if the rhetoric about inter-racial marriage that was spouted 100 years ago is any indication, pretty damned far.

Oh, yeah, that the babies would be polka dotted and so on? Unbelievable.

Posted on Nov 25, 2012 10:13:52 PM PST
Well, less entertaining and more disturbing, that the mixing of races was strictly against biblical principles and allowing races to inter-marry would result in total moral breakdown of society.

I think that a line of babies should be developed with a holstein cow print skin. The white has to be very bright white and the black areas a true black, with razor edges on the black.

I think we should be genetically engineered to be able to turn our skins into any color and pattern, like the cuttlefish. That way we could express all our feelings without having to say anything.

I notice that too often people want to turn a discussion personal. I really don't think one persons outlook is what this thread is about.

But if you don't want to make it personal, then below is a Google search that might aid you in finding your answers.

http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=harm+from+homosexuality
***
Which of these search returns do you feel are valid. I ask because homophobia is real. I could query "Jews" and "Harm from" and also get a wide range of search results. The question is, which of these are worth debating.

So to restate: Is homosexuality acceptable in your opinion. If not, why not?

Being able to change skin color like a cuttlefish would be very cool. The cosmetics industry would have to adapt when people no longer need products that change their skin color.

Then we could go around just wearing thongs, and we could blend in to whatever background we're in front of whenever we want to.
