Topic: Serious Discussion / Your Personal Belief System

I am Christian in that I believe in Jesus and salvation. I also believe that after salvation we are to live as Christ did, which we can learn by reading scripture. I do believe such people wrote the Bible, it may have some fallacies(but none significant), but I do not believe that believing it could harm you. I do not believe in Catholicism though in that the church governs our salvation. I believe something that many Christian and other people do not like to believe, and that is Jesus is the only way. I believe that God created us to have fellowship with him and to worship him. I believe we can find our true purpose in life through God(Ecclesiastes is a great book that helped me understand this). If I were to chose and denomination it would be Wesleyan, but I don’t like the idea that Protestant churches are so split by their beliefs. I wish that the Protestant church could be more unified, but instead they argue over what is inappropriate and etc…

Topic: Serious Discussion / Who's read the entire bible?

I haven’t read it, but I am reading it. I am 17 years old and just took reading it seriously. I don’t plan on reading to the whole thing, but I’m sure I eventually will. I read it for studying purposing so I don’t do it to fast. It is sad, most Christian don’t read it, and they should.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Should puppy abortion be illegal?

What the!? Are you kidding me!? “Put them in a shelter” mmm bright idea… maybe humans in orphanages? Seriously, if you are going to vote yes for human abortion, than its an automatic yes for dogs. I am against human abortion, but animal abortion is different. I think its a silly way to get rid of your dogs and it sounds costly. I just can’t believe we are having this discussion. Before you say, “Put them in a shelter” think about humans. If you are against dog abortion, than you should be against human abortion(duh).

Topic: Off-topic / Prove that God exists Challenge

Ok, I am sick of being told that I am a pompous arseface because I do not believe in God. Please, would you religious people at least admit that what my disposition takes some sort of logic. The more I study the atrocious parts of the bible about slavery, killing, and stoning, the more I am baffled that someone could believe in that book. I know you guys are sick of the argument about how despicable some parts of the bible, but its one of the best arguments backing up why I don’t believe.

I would like to ask a question. If there is a God, than why do you keep insisting upon these things? You guys think that there is a God and yet you act like I’m a horrible person because I don’t believe in him (check the bible belt). Why does it matter? What are you scared of? Being proven wrong? I’m not saying us Athiests don’t start arguments, but I see most arguments on forums are started by Christians. A good argument is healthy, but calling each other idiots and morons creates a destructive argument. Please, if you want us to consider what you have to say, don’t support your arguments with insults. [quote]

Wow! Complete Opposite of what I said! lol.
I know I made a generalization, I am guilty of doing that too often. I don’t think your stupid for believing there isn’t a God. You may have grown up being taught that there isn’t a God, or maybe you were grown up in a church and later decided He wasn’t real. I have been raised in church and I can not deny that that is a significant reason for believing in God. I have my own doubts and struggle with if Christianity. I completely understand why you do not believe in God.
Oh, and the why should it matter for a Christian if you don’t know God? Matt 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” The Bible commands Christians to witness. This is just one of the many verses commanding Christians to spread the Gospel.

Topic: Off-topic / Prove that God exists Challenge

Ok, I am sick of being told that I am irrational idiot because I believe in God. Please, would you atheist at least admit that what you believe takes faith. The more I study about life and the human anatomy the more I a baffled that someone could believe that their isn’t God. I know you guys are sick of the ID argument, but its one of the best arguments backing up God’s existence.

I would like to ask a question. If there is no God, than why does it matter what we belief in? You guys think that there is no God and yet you seem to think it’s a crime to believe in him. Why does it matter? What are you scared of? Being proven wrong? I’m not saying us creationist don’t start argument, but I see most arguments on forums are started by Atheists. A good argument is healthy, but calling each other idiots and morons creates a destructive argument. Please, if you want us to consider what you have to say, don’t support your arguments with insults. A weak argument has to

This is what I hate to see other Christians say to Atheists. Comments like these only harden the unbelievers heart. Do NOT force God on a person. If they wanted to believe in God, they would have already by now. A good witness does not force God on a person. I know witnessing can be difficult and confusing, but you must discern before you say something stupid like this.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Creatiolotionism (Creationism+Evolution)

Believing in evolution is no more of a religion than Christianity. We as humans can only make what we call facts by observing or trying to make reason. Evolution is a theory, not a fact. When I think that all these animals and plants and stuff came from the process of evolution, I think the idea is absurd. Now its sounds like I’m talking about the ID argument. I think the intelligent design is a good argument, but it obviously does not completely disprove the theory of evolution. I believe in Christianity, and I don’t mix evolution with my belief. I believe that evolution was created to try to escape the judgment of God. When you throw God out of the picture, you also throw all of his rules out.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Proposition 8 in California, 2008

“Tolerance seems to have become a one-way street, and equality a synonym for ambiguity.

You have probably noticed. The internet is a boiling cauldron of the frustration felt by many who believe fervidly that denying homosexual couples the right to “marriage” is an attack on equality.

The frustration is misplaced, however. Proposition 8 and others like it are not about equality, but about the definition of a word– “marriage.” A church is not a mosque, red is not blue, a cat is not a dog, a lamp is not a television, a table is not a chair, a tree is not a toadstool. Those statements have nothing to do with equality; they have to do with the definition of words. To say that a homosexual relationship is not a marriage is a matter of definition, not inequality. The majority of Californians, as well as Floridians, voted that if homosexual couples want to officialize their relationship, they need to call it something other than marriage. If one would argue that the issue is one of “rights,” society has a “right” to protect the definition of the institution that for centuries has defined a heterosexual union.

If Canada started calling itself the United States, most U.S. citizens would be enraged. It’s not about equality, it’s about identity. Words mean something; they protect our language from ambiguity. Heterosexual couples have a right to guard the word marriage jealously. It defines their identity as a husband and wife, two individuals of different genders joined in marriage. Canada can call itself The Best Land on Earth, The Great Northland, Heaven on Earth, or pretty much anything it wants, but we have a right to insist that it not call itself the United States. Homosexual couples can call their relationships pretty much anything they want, but most heterosexuals feel deeply that they should not call it marriage.

Look long enough, and a judge can be found who will agree with almost anything, especially if it appears to be trendy or cutting edge and will get his or her name in the press. This being the case, and our constitution being what it is– a great and noble document sometimes twisted to ends its authors and signers never envisioned– the only recourse our democratic society has left is to vote constitutional revisions into place that will protect a definition of marriage that our founders took for granted and that the majority of us still hold dear.

There is plenty of hatred on both sides of the debate, unfortunately, but that’s a different matter. Even the moral/religious questions– certainly worthy discussions– are not the immediate issue here. This is about the attempt to broaden, and thus dilute, the long-held definition of marriage.

Homosexual advocates preach tolerance, but they are completely intolerant of the rest of society’s right to preserve the traditional and time-honored definition of marriage. In the name of tolerance, they want to impose a new definition, their own definition, on a word that for centuries has defined a heterosexual union. If a few of us decided that, in the name of equality, red is now blue, cats are now dogs, or Canada is now the United States, and we demanded that everyone else adopt our new definitions, could the rest of society be rightly accused of intolerance if they opposed it? Or would we be the intolerant ones by demanding that everyone else change their long-held definitions to accommodate us?

Thus the tag line– tolerance seems to have become a one-way street, and equality a synonym for ambiguity.

Marriage. Pick any other fruit in the garden, any other word in the dictionary, just leave this one alone."
Note that it is in quotation. I did not right it.

Topic: Serious Discussion / We are screwed

I think Obama is a smart man. I do not agree with his morale values, but I think he is a very smart man who will improve some things. I wish McCain won, but I do not think Obama is going to screw up America. What I think most republicans are having trouble with is respecting Obama. He should be respected because he is in authority over us. My class keeps making fun of him. Once they made fun of the death of his mother! I think Republicans should be carefull not to disrespect Obama like Bush was by the Democrates(and mostly everyone else :}). He is going to be the president for the next 4 years. If you are still upset about him and think he is going to screw up America than suck it up. Whining about him isn’t going to change anything, but supporting the positive things about him will make you feel more comfortable about him and help the country.

Topic: Serious Discussion / A World Without Religion?

religion has caused many wars. some people think this proves a point. It doesn’t. Hitler started world war 2 because of evolution. The idea of evolution was radicalized which resulted in thousands of innocent deaths. religion is the same way, it goes wrong when we become radical.

atheist vote for gay rights and abortion. Some athiest think that people should be steralized so that we can evolve more properly. this could lead to the killing of “unessassary” people. this has happened to many communistic nations. I am not saying that atheist are bad people. I am saying that athiest nations tend to be communistic. if the whole world was athiest then we would probably try to start a “Utopia”. This could result in war and mas killings.

If I am false in my thinking, than please explain why
