    There is also support for homosexuality within evolutionary theory. The following is about work done by Andrea Camperio Ciani and others at the University of Padova in Italy Homosexuality in males may be caused in part by genes that can increase fertility in females, according to a new study. The findings may help solve the puzzle of why, if homosexuality is hereditary, it hasn't already disappeared from the gene pool, since gay people are less likely to reproduce than heterosexuals. A team of researchers found that some female relatives of gay men tend to have more children than ave

Please note that there was nothing in my post that scoffs at what "billions of people do believe". My post was merely pointing out a logical fallacy. Specifically, the fact that the bible contains statements implying that it is the word of god is not in itself proof that the bible is indeed the word of god. I am not trying to belittle your bible, and in fact I am not even saying that the

  4. I assume you mean that people who are healthy (like me) don't need to go to a physician, so they spend that extra time doing interesting things like studying religion.

    Since there is no "dislike" button, I'll make a post instead. What you are saying is disrespectful. The whole "We love the sinners but hate the sin" is just a way for you to feel good about yourself while making someone else feel bad. This is bullying. Please note that I have reported your post to Tripper. Why not just apoligize and perhaps drop this topic. After all, when you started this thread your own rule was "You must argue without getting personal or hurting the feelings of others."
  6. Perhaps you should read your posts before posting them. Beginning a post with "One of the most fascinating proofs that the Bible is the inspired word of God is..." without stating that this is just an article you think is interesting kind of gives the impression that you agree with what follows.
  7. In the future you might consider citing a source so that people don't get the mistaken impression that your posts are your opinion and not someone elses. Right you are. I do have a limited understanding - limited to reality that is.
  8. So, I'm confused. Isn't it appropriate to discuss the bible in a thread called the "bible on the history channel"?
  9. And furthermore, the bible was written by humans (divinely inspired or not) who have an interest in the end reader accepting the contents so it seems to me that they would write it in a way that would lead to people reading it. Writing and editing a book in a way that seems appealing or is easy to follow makes sense if you want people to read it (for instance you mention that "Every 8th verse in Psalm 119 begins this way" - what a great way to help a preacher keep track of their location in the text while reading it out to a congregation). To give a trivial example of this, if I were t
  10. Well, let's see... You come to a forum about a show that has at it's core a scientific premise and start dissing science and even disputing common scientific vocabulary (From The Scientists Thread: "Yes, you are correct. I am using the word “theory” in the non-scientific sense. The scientific sense is nonsense"). Then you present something that you refer to as a "proof", when in fact it is just a collection of numerical coincidences. There is nothing in your post that comes close to being a proof of anything. Keep in mind that the bible was written by humans and has been edited and
  11. LOL Keep 'em coming weazleman. This stuff is comedy gold.
  12. I think it would be great to add in some math jokes. Just like the good old days when they catered to people with some physics background. Remember the "Spherical chickens in a vacuum" - a classic physics joke. The fact that some people wouldn't understand shouldn't stand in the way of them adding in a few jokes for those who do.
  13. Its nice to see that Sheldon's real character is finally being discussed. I've noticed him changing from being a socially inept science nerd to a real jerk over the past few seasons, but very few people seem to see it. His attitude towards women is disgusting, his attitude towards his friends is disgusting, his attitude towards Amy is disgusting (I don't care much about this as I really don't like her character). Of course, they have also been working hard to ruin the other characters as well, but what they have done to Sheldon is astonishing.
  14. Sorry about all of this folks. Where I come from people don't take the bible literally and it is OK to not gloss over the nasty bits during discussions. I'll just bow out of this conversation as my intent was not to be rude.
  15. Well then, I suggest reading the entire bible. You'd be surprised at what is in there.
