I'll take Hawking over bronze age semi-nomadic tribesmen any day (and twice on Sunday).

RE: Religion and Politics
Why not try to obey what the bible says.

1 Corinthians 6

Sexual Immorality

12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.”The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”[b] 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.[c]18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

Warnings From Israel’s History

10 For I do not want you to be ignorantof the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea.2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 3 They all ate the same spiritual food 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.6 Now these things occurred as examplesto keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. 7 Do not be idolaters,as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.”[a] 8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. 9 We should not test Christ,[b] as some of them did—and were killed by snakes. 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 13 No temptation[c] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[d]beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[e] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Why not try to obey the law the ten commandments and see if your recieving the promises god has given you in his covenant to all actually try out god see if what he says come true in your life while doing that.

Because what's good in the bible is neither unique nor original and what is unique and original is not good.

I don't need anything from your imaginary god; my life is fine as it is. Good and bad things happen to both believers and non-believers at, hold on to your hat, about the same rate. Why would that be of your god is rewarding believers only? Perhaps it's because he doesn't exist and you're engaging in one massive case of confirmation bias.

By the way, why do you push only 10 of the 613 commandments? Why aren't you out stoning unruly children and non-virgin brides?

RE: Religion and Politics
I'm a christian so I go by what the new testament says all sins except sexual sins are outside the body sexual sin is sin against the body. Just to point out god has been compassionate through the whole bible so we live by compassion. And god works with everybody but believers follow god and recieve his promises he made to us. Actually do what the bible says and see if you don't get what you want in life.

Not if you are doing it right.

Have you READ that thing? It's one atrocity after another with Jesus being the icing on the shit cake that is Christianity. "Do what I say or I will torture you forever because I love you" is not compassion, it's psychotic.

Quote:And god works with everybody but believers follow god and recieve his promises he made to us. Actually do what the bible says and see if you don't get what you want in life.

Yeah, you've made that claim before. You should be able to present statistics that show that Christians lead better, happier lives than non-Christians if it is true. Please provide those stats or admit that you are just talking out of your ass.
