Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
Gryphen, Your graphic is false! You are wallowing in ignorance, in ways that surpass those you accuse.
God was invented by early man to explain the natural world around him. Some enterprising types saw opportunity (power, money, control, free sex) and ran with it. Thus, mankind's oldest running scam was born: RELIGION.
Gryphen, So is this why you and your hand holding liberal buddies have embraced Islam and Sharia Law? The originators of the "War on Women", who continue to this day! OH, and shall we note that Iranian leader Arminijad (just one of many examples) calls for the death of homosexuals! You are standing on a foundation of sand, Gryphen. You can't stand still because you will sink. Your feet are slowly sinking because you have no foundation other than your own highest authority. Sad!
Actually I am standing on the firmest foundation of all, science and rational thought.Besides that whole sand thing is a recurring theme in Judeo-Christian mythologies, not something that worries the more progressive among us.
6:31, your ignorance is surpassed only by the stupid way in which you advertise it. You call islam the "originators of the war on women". Yet they became ia force in the mid-eastern world beginning around 600 CE - LONG after judaism and christianity with their claiming females were responsible for us being tossed out of Eden. The religion that has made slaves of women since the tribes learned how to read? The same people who gave women NO RIGHTS at all?And talk about standing on sand? The ultra loud, ultra-right fundamentalists have been yelling for the expulsion of the members of the LGBT community for decades.You yell about Sharia law, yet push for the government to change itself from a secular one to a christian one and the enforcement of christian law? Yeah, right.And as for islam calling for the death of homosexuals, there are two points on that. First, there are a fair number of christian countries that do the same. AND I think you will find that the idiot Ahmadinejad (the PROPER spelling of his name!) is also stupid enough to state publicly there ARE no homosexuals in Iran!And you want to use that asshole as an EXAMPLE?PLEASE. You're as dumb as he is.
The expression, "dumb as a bag of rocks," comes to mind. -:)
6:31amYou can stand still on sand and not sink. It's only when you move that you disrupt the sand grains and begin to sink. Science, it's a thing ya know.
Yep, I misspelled the Iranians name. Yep , I am a Hillbilly. Absolutely, Islam is not the only culture who, in the past subjugated women. BUT! They are still doing it, TODAY! Slavery, is real today! AND you 3 fools embrace Islam as a "religion"! YOU are all blind as a BAT!. Your "science" does not address the other factors that are included in the "foundation of sand" parable! It is dependent on the outside forces. You, who seem to have all control in your environment, say you wont sink! Bring on the flood waters and you are GONE without a trace. In that parable, the waves indicate outside pressures such as wrong thinking, bad decisions, peer pressure, personal habits, et al! .You say; you can stand still and not sink in the sand! (in a laboratory, maybe) You need to bring living reality into your make believe "science"?
I equate islam on an equal footing as christianity or judaism. It's all crap!And for your information, the fundamentalist christians are trying to reinforce their control over women and cram them back into the kitchen and the bedroom. They are trying to teach their female children that the MALE is the top dog and is never to be argued with. Slavery? Yeah.Yeah. Yeah. I know. You don't see it. Tough. It doesn't change the facts.The bible is a collection of crap that was created to "explain" what early man didn't know anything about. PERIOD. Should you choose to remain totally ignorant, kindly do it somewhere else.Oh. And one other thing. Anyone to whom the question is put will say that islam is a religion. Are you even aware of the definition of the word religion?Here's what Merriam-Webster says:re·li·gion noun \ri-ˈli-jən\: the belief in a god or in a group of gods: an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods: an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or groupSTICK IT!
I don't agree with your chart. I personally know several instances where science, mostly archeology, has backed up the bible's stories. I have studied this. And, yes, I am intelligent enough to understand "how science works".Dan Kahan even did a study on the corrolation between "Tea Party" people and their understanding of science, and was surprised to find a positive correlation. Google it.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
