Not quite sure how to parse your statement. Can you re-phrase that, please? Sorry. I was trying to say that from an impartial viewpoint, that treats everything the Bible calls 'sin' as equal (as the Bible says is the case) then legalising civil partnerships is no different to passing a law that con...

BWB,

Oh, so that would explain all the Christian protests about heterosexual couples who decide to have civil unions!
To be fair, from a strictly impartial standpoint it's the equivalent of passing a law condoning anything else the Bible states is wrong.

To answer your previous question, no, Christianity (or rather, the New Testament) does not say anything specifically against homosexuality. But it does state that sex outside of marriage is wrong, and defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Therefore, Christians believe that 'practis...

Interesting article. Seems to be more focussed on the supposed benefits gained by these theories than the existence or non-existence of a deity, though there are some interesting points in there. Though good grief, American TV has a lot of adverts!

Re: "Turn him loose as a theorist..."

I wasn't providing proof, I was refuting your previous point that a creator god must, in all circumstances, have a creator. Moving the goalposts after the fact does not mean the logic is wrong.

The entire argument was based on IF there is a creator god, THEN.

If you accept the scientific method, then God does not exist. Which way do you want it? What I've just been saying is to show that it isn't against the scientific method. You can't reject one argument by ignoring the scientific method and then reject God entirely on the basis of it. However, if the...

Scientific fallacy. Cause and effect states that everything that began had a cause. The universe began, therefore it had a cause. God didn't begin, being eternal, so does not require a cause.

I can't speak for other religions, but over here no-one (barring Catholics) has a problem with contraception. I find it hard to believe it's such a problem in the US - finding a biblical justification for being against it is challenging, I believe.
