Wow! This thread really spiraled out of control!
Can we just get back to pointing out how racist the Mormon Church is already?

Right, because you rejected that equation, which you attributed to my position. I am pointing out that that was never my position, because it's a ludicrous concept.

Me too. My whole point is that my definition was never comparable to saying anyone was in remission, and that insisting otherwise would be insisting that I considered atheism to be a relic of dead divinity. You don't even know what you're saying.

RE: Mormonism: A White Supremacy Cult? (answer: yes)
how does this


Quote:Atheism is not the remission of cancer.

turn into this

Quote: Cathy suggested .....that atheism is represented by the remission of cancer, i.e., rejection.

Cathy specifically stated that Atheism is NOT the remission of cancer, its that discovery that there was insufficient evidence to suggest you had cancer to begin with, FFS

But you would have to be suggesting that Zeus actually existed, and then stopped. Remission requires, by very definition, actual existence, not just belief in the existence. You haven't thought your analogy through very much.

no where in my statement did I say that the religion = truth. Having a Greek religion would not presuppose that Zeus actually existed. My point was only that when the religion ceased to exist, so did the belief in him to the default position of atheism. Kinda like life and death.

Death is not a rejection of life, moron. It's an absence of it!

Good point, I agree that the Mormon doctrine promotes/implies/states that discrimination based on skin color is an aspect of the faith = racism.

Are we done yet?

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

I'm sorry - but - what?Shocking

And does this apply to the elderly who's bodies have given out and death has arrived at last? I'm not sure that's a choice, Alla.

Using the term: "rejection" implies choice.Blink

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

It was meant as a joke, not to be taken seriously.

And I think those links are for you. You have need of them, not me.
