There is no love there are only chemical reactions that call that particular chemical reaction, "love." From an atheistic viewpoint I don't see how that can be disputed.
Do you know how to contextualize literature?
That is the point, no new "forces" will change the dynamics of everyday living as we understand them...let alone supernature...
says you, not everyone. Therefore, not objective morality

I will have to say, because I grew up in and around the Detroit area, that there is an extreme difference between various communities, and this understanding is shared by people of all colors. I recall some famous black folks saying that even THEY will cross the street when a group of young black men they don't know are standing on a corner in some neighborhoods they happen to visit, and this tells a major part of the story.
Yet you aver your god...therefore, you claim to speak for me.
Yep. That bit also makes it pretty damn disgusting, especially since he was a grown ass man at the time. : /
Thanks for the fat pitch, ST!
This is not a political forum. Thanks.
Everyone should be forced to be accountable for their actions. Its a norm across society. You break it, you fit it. You make the mess, you clean it up. Simple lessons of life you should have learned.
In Victorian Britain poverty was considered a moral failing. I find that far more Americans than Canadians or other westerners believe that.
The timeframes we're talking about though are Bible timeframes, so this is going back to earlier than 1400 BCE.
You aren't doing your case any favours.
Excellent! I like-minded with Stephen Jay Gould in this post (and I enjoyed his writing style as well).
They vote for who will guarnatee them the most freebies. Entire communities of government housing in Toronto now , thousands of units where no hydro is paid and many rents are less than $200 a month. They even work part time to supplement welfare so its pretty rosy for them

Did you answer the questions asked or any 1 or 2 of them anywhere? There's nothing wrong with the original questions.
Just because a story involves a real person does not mean that it is not fiction.
That?s how I feel too.
Sure but that's not the case. There is unfortunately a link between the law and the religious act. Truly separate the two and secular people wouldn't care at all what religions did with their marriage.
Because you've got nothing intelligent to add. I gotcha.
I think it?s interesting you deemed my thread ?inflammatory?. Would it surprise you if felt your apathetic attitude towards LGBT people outside Western Civilization to be problematic? Dead gays are ?inflammatory? to those of us who are not apathetic to the plight of murdered gays.
let's take a different "what if". Let's look at a pretend situation.
If you don't understand how it occurred you cannot understand how it evolves.
Were you asked to be concerned?
My dad was stuck watching tv and news in his last days, and it was terrible for his anxiety. From his armchair, he thought the world was falling apart. Of course, when he actually got out and talked to people, it wasn't that way. Here we are 12 years later.
Are you going to bitch and whine because you can't own machine guns, or a tactical nuke?
Christians do not like humankind...they despise us...and themselves.
Funny, the Old Testament is written in Hebrew. Do you know anything about language?
We've all had bosses who use their tiny bit of power over you, even if its not sexual all the time. There are people who gravitate to management not because they like people but because they don't. "I'm gonna have to ask you to work this weekend..."
