I'm so tired of responding to the same ridiculous questions over and over again with simple answers that still somehow completely escape the person to whom I'm responding. I'm not sure if visual aids will help these people, but they certainly amuse me.
The funniest thing is that I've started using these IRLz too. The last time someone threw the "can't disprove x" at me I responded by yelling, "I HAS A BASEBALL!!! YOU CAN'T PROVE I DON'T!"
funny, but not all of us are like that.some of us do like jesus did he would say him that hath ear let him hear.if you don't want to listen thats your choice but as long as i did my part of telling you repent and turn from your sins cause the kingdom of god is at hand.
Aaaaaaaaaah... good old common sense. I use to like that word - and indeed, it belongs to the rational and intelligent - but FOX news uses that word so much, they tainted "common sense" like a 6-year-old virgin raped by 5 Osama Bin Ladens. And that 6-year-old was a boy.
Of course the religious have to demonstrate the existence of religious truths.They claim they represent reality,but the evidence is depressingly thin.I like Victor Stenger saying we can with reasonable certainty say that it's disproved.I honestly think it's disproved for real.After listening to Steven Weinberg,Lawrence Krauss,Victor Stenger a good while now..I have much more faith in intelligent,highly educated respect people as these guys.
Then listening to guys like William Lane Craig that just use fussy words about the universe thrown in with some philisophy and that should be it.Alot of people buy into alot of what Dr.Craig state because his got confidence,don't let him trick you.For all we know there might be intelligent creatures with highly advanced technology that made all this:D who knows? just the fact that we have science at all is amazing! that we even have a tool to work with discovering these bigger questions.
Logically, God shouldn't have a gender at all. In fact, I'm positive that originally "he" wasn't meant to, they simply referred to "him" as male because of the masculine nature of the language and it carried on through translations, the same as English where the male pronoun dominates for most situations.
Why does God need a penis? That's the only defining characteristic of a male is the genitalia (you could say hormones, but why would God have those either?). The only logical conclusion to any existing deity is that it is entirely without any association to gender whatsoever. So I can't look at that as 50/50 chance of genders.
Ha, I think it runs a lot deeper than that, and you're being too kind. I think females are genetically superior in the context of modern times, plain and simple. Perhaps male egotism was most effective while hunting for food and later for building civilizations. But there's still a lot of legacy in those genes that express male dominance, if not occasional, blatant destruction.
I'm not saying we can't culturally rise above what's built into us. I'm just saying we still have a lot of work to do.
Yeah, that was a blatantly underexplained "plain and simple", alright.
I need to start that discussion as its own topic someday. Without getting deeply into it here, women live longer, are better mothers, and are (comparatively) rarely responsible for the worst human atrocities like spousal abuse, rape, murder, genocide, inventing patriarchal (well, or matriarchal) religion, etc.
I like to say that testosterone fueled our evolution, but now it hinders it. Now please don't take me TOO seriously. It is after all just a thought experiment at this point.
Btw if any male has "feminine characteristics", that helps offset the evil parts.
Seriously. Stop me here. I think I could fuel a whole 'nuther discussion.
