 ...Even if I were not Christian (yes, Mormons are Christian)....

I don't really know much about Mormonism. Besides the fact I went to see the jail they put Joseph Smith in a couple of weeks ago.

Wiki is somewhat cryptic on this point:

"Most Mormons self-identify as Christian, though some of their beliefs differ substantially from mainstream Christianity."

More research on Wiki says that like Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons apparently don't believe Jesus is God. While Wiki talks about early debates on the nature of Jesus as God or not, nowadays if a religion does not believe Jesus is God most people would say they're not Christian. While there is a historical link, Mormonism is very different theologically from the what is broadly recognized as Christianity. I guess another question is what does it matter whether we call Mormonism a Christian religion?

Maybe he is AWK...

Anyway, religion is an interesting topic. I sure do hope it doesn't get locked! (crosses fingers)

Agnostic FTW! Woot woot!

...

I still try to be respectful of religion, even though I am not myself religious. I don't know the answers, but in saying that, I don't see how I can say that any other group doesn't have the answers either. How would I know?

The issue is simpler (in principle) than this last sentence suggests.

Religion has no answers (in the "valid" sense of the word) if it has no evidence to back up their answers (that they actually give).
Atheism doesn't claim to have any answers.


Hence, weak atheist.
I don't know of any evidence that backs up the claims of any religion - and stick to the label that makes no claims without backing them up in the first place.
Seems sound to me.

I have an opinion on atheism. That is all.

Could be 12, could be 17. If you think about Ellen Page, might aswell approach the 20s.

It's often hard to tell IN PERSON, let alone from a short gif.

But yea... definitely too young for you. I'd suggest you get over it and move on.

I could have sworn I heard unimportant mumbling just now.

And again :D

Interesting how, after I've just joined this thread to make a few on-topic points (and post a few nonsense links while at it), it's once again someone else who's trying to bring in older feuds...


Makes me think of a classic moment in the Russian poem "Ruslan and Ludmila" by Pushkin:
Ludmila is abducted from her husband by the evil sorcerer gnome, who holds her captive in her castle and tries to make her fall in love with him by giving her beautiful clothes, delicious food etc.

But Ludmila looks at all this and gives a dramatic, hammy and demonstrative monologue assuring that she'll never touch these gifts and, if so she must, will rather die and starve than betray her love... and then...

"so she thought... and began to eat."



LOL!

I'll stop if you stop.

Quick, somebody start discussing religion before it's too late!

Hey, you started it...




... just an innocent suggestion: maybe if you ditched the silly "pledge" and instead just behaved reasonably (that includes responding reasonably to reasonable posts without trying to start a trainwreck), there would be no problems.
Just an idea.

There, I've stopped.

Sure, but the girl in that picture was nowhere in the ballpark of 5 years old.

Regardless of the age of the girl in the earlier picture, she looks like she could be twelve, which makes you finding her hot a bit icky.

Well, she looked more like 16-18 to me, and from experience, she could very well be.

You know, it's only for so long until irrationally obsessing over others' supposed perversions starts looking suspicious (or at least ludicrous) by itself.
I'd suggest now as the moment for you to quit ;)

well, my religion demands that I hit females just this side of legal as often as possible. :)

There are actual healthy relationships in my circles between 22 and 29, and a few further apart.
Sometimes, it's hard to tell just from looking at it.

It happens.
