Re: 10%
Oh and you are so brilliant that you post this piece of sh*t as a response. You certainly in no way qualified your statement and therefore it is worth less than doggie doodoo. I make the point that just because things might be abnormal or unnatural does not mean people have a right to stop others from doing them and in fact in many times society condones and encourages abnormal and unnatural acts, and instead of commenting on the point,

Star Goat In Review!

Nice try
apples oranges.. my question was in the context of explaining that there are relationships that aren't marriage, that shouldn't get married status benefits... your rejoinder supports my viewpoint... Marriage is the civil recognition of the sexual union between unrelated man and woman in what is supposed to be a lifelong exclusive committed relationship... Both points, above, do not fit the model. To return to the thread's topic... (marriage benefits/rewards from the State, and who should qualify); my model

Antitrinitianarism
Which only goes to prove that Ken Wiens, whoever he is, is a human being, prone to error. and you feel this, somehow, reflects upon universal truths? the another pithy explanation is that the trinity is like water(solid(ice), liquid(water), and gas(vapour)). Proof, please? Already did, in the post you replied to, but you, like the rest of these half-baked athiests and pagans in here, conveniently quote to suit your preset agenda. Your servant,

Freud Debunked Again
Rod is an atheist. It's highly unlikely that he would employ or advocate a tool or method which has been traditionally the venue of theists. No, I'm sure that Rod would find that whacking you with a seat cushion would be more to his sexual preference. <grin> The fact that Freud was not a genius remains, by the way. http://www.linkline.com/personal/frice/index.htm frice@linkline.com <DARWIN>< labeling people "sinners" Larry Sites

What an ass
A preacher wanted to earn money for his church, he had heard there was big money in horse racing so he decided to purchase a horse and enter him in the races. However at the local auction the going price for horses was too steep and the preacher ended up buying a Donkey. The Preacher figured since he had the Donkey. He might as well enter it in the races. The next day the donkey came in third. The

Janet Reno and Henry Kissinger Together
It's humorous, yes, and might indicate an interesting phenomena if it were expressed in a larger percentage of the atheist popoulace. After some six years or so, I think you're the first atheist to preface a "rebuttle" with the words, "While I'm an atheist..." You're unique, Barbara. We must cut you into wafer-thin sections and slide you under a microscope. <grin> And yet you continually refuse to back-up your vague accusations with any specifics. I suppose this is acceptable behavior

The View From Up Here
Ah, good. What will make me happy is when you post references which refute anything I've posted. I will dump your references to paper and research them the very next day. Until then, I'll continue to experience manic depression and down those lithium tablets every hour on the hour. Since that treatment gets to be rather expensive, I do hope you'll not take your time. But I like the view from up here. As Jesus said when he was drying

These Sore Knees
Interestingly enough it's true. While several studies have shown that thinking at deity constructs improves one's mental disposistion, it has also shown that it doesn't matter which deity constructs one thinks at. (Shit. A dangleing participle. Somebody cut it off, 'kay?) One god is scientifically as good as another. In real terms of altering physical reality, thinking at deity constructs was determined scientifically to be the equal to thinking at a table top. The only constant were the sore knees.

Strip the Vega
It seems certain that the James Randi Foundation turns down claims as vague and as silly as yours. Indeed, as I recall, they require an enumerated list of specifics about claimed phenomena before they'll even begin to evaluate whether it's worth their time and resources. I can forward a contact address for you if you wish. It wouldn't do for me to contact them for you I have a respectable image I should try to maintain. This would

Boy Scouts' Unscientific Discrimination
Usually it's kids who have been Scouts for a long time who get ejected. While I think the research indicates that one's sexuality is determined by the age of nine, overt depictions have to wait until children mature. The issue of youth does factor into the issue, yeah. The question is, When does one's sexual behavior indicate one's genetic predispositions? Boys and girls experiment sexually with each other and, though such experimentation might be between two individuals of the same

Genius: What is it? How does one buy it?
Not according to those who investigate cognitive human capabilities. The better to retain one's mistaken preconceptions with. I should post some extracts from Michael Shermer's coverage of what constitutes genius. While the boundaries of genius are fuzzy, there is still agreed-upon indications of _achievement._ Hell, I wonder if the Skeptics Society web pages have the issue on line. http://www.linkline.com/personal/frice/index.htm frice@linkline.com <DARWIN><
