That's when you know that they're faaar down the rabbit hole. They are so mind-fucked that they're prepared to give up their own basic desires - to dress up or to play around and drink a beer on occasion, or God forbid, to kiss someone under the stars... That's sad.

Is "to kiss someone under the stars" a euphemism for oral sex?

Because, if not, it should be!

Bro, until you've gone out on a cold night under a moonless sky with the Milky Way blazing overhead and had a damn good smooch, don't go making euphemisms. The real deal is pretty fuckin' awesome Tongue

One of my favorite things in the world is to drive out to the darkest, most remote place I can find with a good view and park the car, put a sleeping bag on the hood, and get in with my Beloved to watch meteor showers and smooch. You're totally right. Smile

You and Morondog are right about watching the sky like that. Sometimes, since moving here, I go down by the lake and just look up at the stars, because it's the darkest part of the area.

Need to think of a witty signature.

To me, theistic evolution has a strong ring of pseudoscience to it. That's where I kind of "respect" a creationist, if only for honesty.

When going to a Christian school I was taught that it is all either the truth or all lies. I cannot imagine it being somewhere in between and since it is easily provable to not be all truth it is then all lies to me.

RE: Post your hypocritical Theist WTF??! moment story
I always find it weird when Christians who use free will as an explanation for the problem of evil thank God for events that are 100% caused by human activity. Similarly, I find it weird when they pray for leaders for things like wisdom and guidance.

Either that wisdom and guidance is going to have an effect on the person's decision, or it won't. If it doesn't, it was meaningless. If it does, then God effectively tipped the scales and made the decision for the person.

Compatibilism is one of the weirdest hand waves/bullet dodges in theology, and you see its faults every time a believer says things like this.

What... how?

TE/EC = believes everything an atheist believes except that God kickstarted/actively controls evolution. How is that pseudoscience? The difference between a TE/EC and an atheist has nothing to do with science.

The single difference is that the theist answers the question, "But, what came before?" with "God", whereas the atheist says "I don't know."

It is pseudoscience because there is absolutely no evidence for it and no need of that hypothesis.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
