    How to prove God to an atheist (no, really)...

    Gary E. Schwartz PhD has a nice quote that fits very well into this proposal ("[Have god do something cool so that I can believe in 'im]"). The quote is: "You can't have the universe." If there is a god, he has created it the way he felt like creating it with an outcome that will be in his...

    What's Wrong With Not Liking Homosexuality??

    Good question. A few more to add to it: Why do homosexuals have greater protection in law? (Through hate crimes) Why are we forced to accept homosexuality? (anti-discrimination laws) Why are they given tax breaks? (And, more importantly, why don't other sexual deviants?) The majority of...

    Is God constantly trying to convince us of His Existence?

    5.) The God is Schizoid. Loves, but doesn't care about relationships in the least.

    Is race a choice?

    Ya, it's being ignored. Race is biological, though a persons mannerisms could be changed by moving into a different culture.

    Is premarital sex a sin?

    If you *really* want to know what "God" thinks about sex in general: Look at every single prophet and holy man in the bible. Does it *ever* mention them having sex? This either means: A. God doesn't care who you have sex with as long as both people aren't married or they're both married to...

    Intelligent First Cause

    The complexities of the beginning of the universe is something I can't even pretend to understand. Physics can't even describe it.

    Does God Exist? - The Fog is Lifting

    It's at the halfway point. :p

    Prove you Exist.

    Ya, I didn't explain fully so I edited it, sorry about that, I was trying to be quick.

    Prove you Exist.

    That's a tough argument. We all exist because we present new information that had not already been known in the universe. New information including, but not limited to, our position in space and time. Unfortunately, thanks to our limited capacity, most of the universe does not exist to us...

    Is It OK To Marry Someone Who Is Not Of Your Religion?

    That's a setup for a failure, but if the underlying values are the same, there shouldn't be a problem. If you're going to be married for the rest of your life (As is generally the tradition) you want to avoid potential fights in the future. Those things that weren't such a big deal when you were...

    If it doesn't affect you

    We have an entire branch of government dedicated to judging our neighbors. Notice also, that it's not the judge that does the judging, but, again, each of us. Welcome to the real world, MidnightBlue. Here we are, at least, accountable by one another. "So what?"!? Surely you can see the...

    "My Son is Gay"

    The piles and piles of studies showing that homosexuality is genetic is just drowning me, thank you for your persuasive arguments. (Heh...)

    "My Son is Gay"

    "Identical twins have identical genes. If homosexuality was a biological condition produced inescapably by the genes (e.g. eye color), then if one identical twin was homosexual, in 100% of the cases his brother would be too. But we know that only about 38% of the time is the identical twin...

    "My Son is Gay"

    Bleh... Simply because research is old, doesn't mean that it is invalid unless the research was incorrectly done. "If homosexuality were significantly influenced by genes, it would appear in every culture, but in twenty-nine of seventy-nine cultures surveyed by Ford and Beach in 1952...

    If it doesn't affect you

    I never said whether I believed morality was subjective or objective. However, if morality is subjective, as this lady has supposed, then she has absolutely no authority on the matters of right or wrong above me or anyone else. If we were to take the harm/no harm princible it is still...

    "My Son is Gay"

    That's interesting. I wonder what exactly he "repudiated". The idea that homosexuals can be treated or should? I'll have to read that book. "Recent studies postulate biologic factors as the primary basis for sexual orientation. However, there is no evidence at present to substantiate a...

    If it doesn't affect you

    In this instance, it is hippocritical. To say, definitively, that murder and raping is wrong is exactly counterintuitive to saying that all morals are subjective. The whole argument backfires and I could say this: Who are you to tell me I can't kill my sister than rape her corpse? Hippocracy!

    If it doesn't affect you

    I have a moral obligation to tell others how they should live their lives, otherwise I'm being a flexible hippocrite. We live in a rather pitiful society where no one believes in anything importand and, in so doing, they step on *all* religions. In other words: You are telling me how I should...

    "My Son is Gay"

    Fantastic mother. Absolutely wonderful. How to change a son that is wondering into Psychosis? That's a difficult one, but it's something he, himself, has to decide to do. If she tries to force Anti-Gay rhetoric down the boys throat, he could, definately, have some psychological trauma. As a...

    Christians:Is It Possible to Love Your Enemy?

    Absolutely, I can love my enemies. It *so* ignorant for people to hate one another. Literally, one another. It's not the person that makes us angry, it's their actions. I try to show people what they are doing wrong, just like a teacher does with a student. Teachers shouldn't get angry with...
