I do know that Christian charities always donate a lot of food, basic supplies, and man-hours to help with disaster relief, especially for a disaster as big as Hurricane Haiyan.edit on 26-11-2013 by ghostfacekilah00 because: (no reason given)
What do you mean the billboard was at no cost? It doesn't cost money to put up billboards? As a Christian, I would consider it a godsend to be given a Bible or rosary in the midst of a disaster and I would hope for prayer from my brothers and sisters in Christ
how did you get christianity out of that.
just because some deists weren't religious as you say,
doesn't mean practically everybody else was the same.
what do you think happened? they turned off their religious switch and turned it back on again a few years later, or what?
and i'm under attack for even that.
no problem. i don't think you're attacking me. Lucid
Lucid just doesn't have any wiggle room in his head for any other world view.
belief in a higher power does not preclude morality, i agree with that. but lack of belief in a higher power, does not preclude morality either.
the problem is, where there are no rules regarding the sacredness of human life, governments become monsters.
Is there something wrong with an unorthodox view.

I have read many of your posts in the past, from many threads. I am seeing the same stuff here. You regurgitate the same ludicrous misunderstandings about atheism and morality over and over. Even when presented with strong counter arguments.
In your words, not much wiggle room.
Any hoot. I'm done "attacking you". Carry onedit on 27-11-2013 by Lucid Lunacy because: (no reason given)
Long time no see lucid.
Hey I always confuse deism with other things maybe you should clarify for all.
listen i spent the first half of the thread defending atheists and people who have no religion.
then you came in squaring off on me
i still want to know if as a deist/atheist, you think my unorthodox view is a problem
that is so dang confusing.
I have donated to religious organizations before for disaster relief but I never thought the money I gave would go to proselytization with bibles or rosaries if I thought for a second they would be I would have found a worthwhile charity. The people need food shelter medicine.
