Quote# 60510

How about this...Man needs absolutes to function. Those absolutes are from God. When a person is raised to believe there are no absolutes then they don't know how to accept absolutes. They don't live according to those absolutes so other people don't see those absolutes.

So, what am I saying? I don't think the number of Christians is declining. I think the number of people faced with the fact that Christianity is about absolutes have abandoned their "religion".

2Pe 2:22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, "A DOG RETURNS TO ITS OWN VOMIT," and, "A sow, after washing, {returns} to wallowing in the mire."

Speaking of which...what do the results of the last election say about us?

==Man needs absolutes to function.==

Premise wrong, argument failed. That was easy.

==what do the results of the last election say about us?==

Possibly not as stupid as the rest of the world thinks?

In the first paragraph, you claim man needs absolutes to function, then explain how people live without absolutes.

In the second paragraph, you claim the number of Christians is not declining; instead people are abandoning Christianity.

In the third paragraph, you discuss animal behavior without explaining why.

As an argument, this is an absolute failure. If I showed this to my Public Speaking prof, he'd wet his pants laughing.

Only the Sith work in absolutes, blah, blah, blah...

Black and white only works in generalities. There's always a grey area.

OH Atheist

His rambling makes more sense if you consider he might be talking about vodka:

"How about this...Man needs Absolut to function. Absolut is from God. When a person is raised to believe there is no Absolut, then they don't know how to accept Absolut. They don't live according to Absolut so other people don't see Absolut.

This cretin has no comprehension of what Absolute truly means.

Yeah, I have seen my dog eat his own puke too!. That must be proof that the bible must be interpreted literally.

Oh, there are definitely absolutes. All people die, no exceptions, is one. Also, if you build your house of straw, and a big bad wolf comes, he will have no trouble huffing and puffing it down, is another. Facts are pretty absolute.

Religious dogma isn't fact.

"A DOG RETURNS TO ITS OWN VOMIT," and, "A sow, after washing, {returns} to wallowing in the mire."

And the fundies return to using the same stupid arguments about Obama, homosexual, atheists...

"Man needs absolutes to function."

The results of the last election say that the US is being sick of being run by a bunch of douchebags.

People need absolutes to live? Oh damn, I though it was beer, not absolutes.

See, I don't require my absolutes to come from a higher power.

They are thus:
1. Hate is evil.
2. Love is the most powerful of good forces.

Those are obvious just from being alive and human.

That is the Republicans want to have a ghost of a chance winning, they need to put someone on the ballot that is both sane and not threatening to run the country on his or her personal biases, rather than,,,I dunno...the good of the people. Like...including all us unwashed heathens.

Speaking of which...what do the results of the last election say about us?

That we're sick and tired of extreme-right pseudo-Christianoid religious zealots spouting lunatic bullshit, and Obama was the only candidate who seemed even remotely sane.
