    Banning All Marriage?

    Yes, thank you. Worded much more better. About the religious aspects, since I'm getting a lot of flack for that, I recognize that most people do not see it as something very religious. Only the religious people very marriage as religious. Outside of that, it still has a lot of emphasize as...

    Banning All Marriage?

    A while ago I was talking with a guy, debating over same-sex marriage(which I have always been staunchly for), but he made an interesting argument which I have been thinking over for a while; why do we even have marriage? Why not a civil unions(or something similar) for all? If you have a very...

    The God of Israel

    Lol. You sound like a car salesman, the way you are talking about how Christianity is a great and loving religion, without ever really saying anything at all. Let's pretend that Christianity is loving and dandy religion that has never done anything wrong or bad. What makes you so sure it's...

    The God of Israel

    And there are the lies I mentioned. I call BS. Sure, I've been proud of myself from time to time, and I do tell a few white lies. And if you believe that makes me a bad person, then you need some serious help.

    The Catholic Church and illogical comparisons

    The Vatican has had a lot of moral blunders throughout the ages. I'm hopeful that they'll try to better themselves in the following years, if not just temporarily.

    Muslim women 'face crisis over violence'

    First, there are extreme Muslims, and there are moderate Muslims. They tend to transcends the sects. Secondly, in a theocracy, it's common of extremists to get at the head, and force their views on the people. I'm not going to lie or deny that many Islamic laws in theocracies are harsh and...

    How about I just be a good person without all the lies?

    Muslim women 'face crisis over violence'

    Yes, all too often in Islamic countries countries women are prosecuted against. Yes, it is sad and wrong. Does that mean that all Muslims are bad? No. It doesn't even mean Islam itself as a religion is bad. I've been in religious debates with just about someone from every religion. Whenever a...

    Solutions then

    I don't like to sympathize with a pregnant woman unable to get an abortion. Honestly, it scares the hell out of me. I'm too young, too poor, too emotionally unavailable. I sympathize a lot more easily with the woman though than the fetus. Probably because the fetus has no emotions to sympathize...

    Solutions then

    If abortion should become legal, we would have to really pump up the police force to stop back-alley abortion, because no woman should die trying to remove a fetus with a vaccum cleaner. It's very disturbing because that is one of those things that are hard to stop. A women dying, along with the...

    Solutions then

    If abortion became illegal, we would have to build a lot more orphanages. Taxes would probably have to be raised to pay for all the unwanted children, or some other revenue source. I'd hope that we would work harder to prevent back-alley abortions, and that would require extra money to the...

    Pro-Abortion, no different than Pro-Slavery

    He would still be self-aware. Intelligent and aware. This is the biggest difference between a full human and a fetus.

    Pro-Abortion, no different than Pro-Slavery

    I completely and utterly rely on science to find truth. I use my philosophy to evaluate the truth to bring me my morals. So, kinda, yeah, I do science to define what is right and wrong. They've taken human skin cells and grown them in petri dishes. Cells dividing and replicating, but I don't...

    Pro-Abortion, no different than Pro-Slavery

    Alright, so you are pretty much saying life starts at conception. Technologically, you're right. At conception a new cell is created out of two old and pre-existing cell. A zygote is a cell, a cell is alive, and that is simple biology. The problem is, no one in our society fights for cell's...

    Pro-Abortion, no different than Pro-Slavery

    Just because we can create life doesn't mean it's morally wrong to not. The point that is trying to be made is that the brain activity for an early fetus(or is it still called an embryo? I forgot the cut-off dates) is so minor that to end it wouldn't be immoral. No one cries over a dead sea...

    Christians, What do you think of this?

    If anyone gets angry at that, it's more or less just a sign of weak faith. If that is all it takes to cause someone to get defensive, they are the ones with problems, not you. But I'm not a fair opinion. Atheist here, so not a Christian view.

    Why do people believe in Ayn Rand?

    But the implications, and our emotions that are caused by them, are subjective. It's next to impossible to sense something without giving it some subjective meaning behind it. In fact, out senses are very spotty, and our mind automatically fills in the rest. Some interesting psychological tests...

    Pat Condell talks about the mosque to be built near ground zero

    My point is not all Islamic countries are theocracies, not that all Islamic countries are happy and great places. And the point I'm trying to make by comparing Islam to Christianity is that religions can take control and cause violence, but they can also be tamed. Christianity in Uganda is...

    Pro-Abortion, no different than Pro-Slavery

    Interesting, I wonder if you'll stay gone. No offensive to you personally, but my past expirences, most of the time when someone says they're leaving a forum, they leave for a few days then come back.
