You're right. Clearly, in a global complex civilization with innumerable subjects and events happening constantly and a market of billions of people, the only two things that songs should be about are partying and love. I commend your ingenuity and predict you will go on to accomplish great things.

It's not the same, because in slavery, child molestation and murder there is a victim, and it's one person hurting another. The same does not happen when there is an abortion, at least the people who believe abortion should be legal don't believe that.

I hear "Guns don't kill people, people do" a lot. Also "If you make owning a gun illegal only criminals will have guns." Both true in theory but they don't translate into real life.
Paraphrasing a statement from Bill Hicks, in one year, there were 23,000 deaths from handguns in America. In the same year there were 14 deaths from handguns in England, where it is illegal for a civilian to own a gun. Obviously the USA has a far greater population than America, so if we scale the population down to the same size as Britain's, and scale the amount of gun deaths accordingly, that's 4,600 deaths. 4,600 in a country where guns are legal and readily available and 14 in a country where they are not.
Also, it's true that guns don't kill people, but by that logic neither do bombs. I could plant a bomb and kill hundreds of people, and it would be me killing them, not the bomb, but if I didn't have the bomb in the first place, I wouldn't be able to kill anywhere near as many people.

Tell that to people who live under a communist dictatorship and who are not allowed to leave.
Or anyone under 18/ the legal age of adulthood for their homeland.
Or anyone who can't leave their families for other reasons.

God, people are ignorant.

no it's not? faith is believing in something regardless of proof because you feel deep down that it is true.

No, faith is believing in something regardless of proof because you want it to be true

Believing nothing is ignorance. It means you haven't contemplated the meaning or origin of life at.

I never said that I "believe nothing." I said I don't believe in a zombie Jesus or a cheap magician in the clouds. Or any religion. I contemplate the meaning of life on a daily basis, because I'm not caught up making wishes to my imaginary friend.

Im about to give a great example of evolution right here: Once upon a time there were two smart people, and they had a child, and their child had a child, and so on, but some where, a mutation occured, and eventually a child was born with out any common sense or dignity. His name was scrantoncity. The end.

Scrantoncity, you **** moron, you didn't own shit. You've never won a single "debate" on this site yet. Your arguments never consist of anything but "because I(therefore god) says so" and "science lies"(even though there's ABSOLUTELY no reason for them to EVER do so, because it's directly counter to the whole point of science... a real scientist would rather prove something false that fake something true). Good thing the explanations that you offer people "require a minimal amount of intelligence to understand"; they're the only ones who buy it.

I swear, you're like the amirite train wreck; horrible, tragic, and no one's glad to see it... but we just... can't... look... away.

I don't know about anyone else, but I can't remember the last time I went to a church of science and aligned myself strongly behind a scientific theory, supporting it without proof or evidence of its claims.

I don't think anyone particularly openly supports science, they simply take it for granted. Religion, however, is known for its very, exceedingly in fact, vocal supporters and an entire infrastructure of support. Thus the entire GP statement is a complete analogical fallacy.

I believe in gravity because I do not float off into space. I believe in magnetism because I observe magnets sticking together. Yet I worship neither of these things. What have you observed to form a belief in god, and why should such a phenomenon warrant worship above and beyond the simple, observable facts of life.

In other words, stop wasting your Sunday brown-nosing a ** imaginary diety, you nobjockeys, and revel in the world around you. Go for a picnic. ** someone. Play Dungeon Siege. Travel.
