            @ozhunter: You are literally sacrificing a normal secular lifestyle to follow a doctrine and prescribed dogma based on the mutterings in a controversial old book. If I wasn't talking about Christianity most people would think I'm referring to a cult.

            If you want to focus on the cash, there is an expectation of 10% pre-tax straight into your local cult churches bank account. You know, because god isn't omnipotent and can't just make it appear for some reason.

            This is nothing like paying an app developer for a coffee.

                  Definitely one of the more honest answers people give and probably the main reason why many wouldn't even consider the possibility that God exists. They want to be their own god, to not be accountable to anyone.

                    I absolutely consider the possibility that a god exists all the time. There's just no proof is all.

                    They want to be their own god, to not be accountable to anyone

                    I am accountable to myself, my wife, my daughter, my family, my friends, my employer, my society and governments, my lawmakers, my financial interests, just not a rapey priests or scammy ministers, and certainly not an invisible unproven sky fairy.

                        Who is accountable then? Are the Catholics not to blame for creating a space for priests to systemically rape children? Maybe it's unfair to lump another denominations problems on you, but you seem to think that as a non believer I have all the answers in the world. News flash. Nobody does, and that's the reason I'm a non believer.

                        You two keep bringing up rape and I don't know why, it doesn't help your argument. Considering the whole submit to your husband thing, I'm surprised christians aren't the most forward progressive feminists to protect themselves from litigation surrounding non consensual intercourse. If you're coerced to bang your husband just because your minister said you're his wife and it's your duty is that ok? I think it's rape. Now look at me I've gone off topic. Rape rape rape is there another topic?

                        If they commit sexual abuse and are scammy. Are you will still accountable to them?

                        Sadly, yes. Although there are checks and balances that help to stop and prevent this from happening, I am liable to the government regardless of the individual morals of those elected. You are too. Why am I explaining this, are you an adult? That's a legitimate question because this is basic stuff.

                        And it's not a "so-called secular life" it's just what life is and was without and before religious influence. Humans predate your book by a long way.

                          @tromboc: You have several measures you can take if a priest or a ministry are doing something wrong. Depending on the situation. Most of them have church discipline, you can choose to leave if not resolved and find another church or you can report them to the police.

                          I don't know how to submit turn into rape. Just sound like very bad exegesis. Children submit to their parents. Employee submits to their boss. Does that mean they are getting raped? The same author your quoting also said to love your wife like Jesus love the church. I would think raping someone will not be a loving thing to do. Like Jesus love the church means you're ready to give your life for her. We also have verses which say to submit to one another. My guess is that for you it means rape one another. Lol

                @ozhunter: Why do you care what your god thinks? Shouldn't you be guided by a more internal set of morals and ethics, which come from our own humanity, society and upbringing?

                Sure, "freely given" is what the brochure says. The bible constantly constantly harks on about how those who give freely sow the rewards, and those who don't, won't. The point is that a true believer earnestly wants to, but that want is driven by a learned belief from a religious teaching. There's nothing "free" about it. You're taught to want to do it, but of course the progression is slow and comfortable, so it feels… "right"

                All the denominations are different flavours of the same thing with differing levels of crazy and sexual abuse and fraud.

                  @tromboc: "Shouldn't you be guided by a more internal set of morals and ethics". If everyone uses his internal set of morals and ethics. It will be someone opinion compared to another. So a rapist can do whatever he wants as long as he is guided by his sets of morals and ethics. I hope you realise your standard of morality fails.

                    @gto21: What in the hell are you talking about? Are you trying to say if you weren't a christian you would automatically default to wanting to rape people? If not, where do you get that idea from? Humanity worked out raping people was bad long before your book turned up, and without a god to tell them. You can't claim that you or your religion had anything to do with that!

                    I hope you realise your standard of morality fails.

                    I'm doing just fine thanks.

                    In any case, according to your bible, it's the woman's fault if she's raped anyway. She put herself in that position and didn't cry out for help.

                    Don't lecture me from any point of authority on morality. As a christian you are well and truly on the back foot.

                      @tromboc: You know in Hebrew the word used for rape can be also translated as lay with. So yes you will get a lecture. I know what verse you're referring and you won't last long.

                      I never said if someone is not Christian it means they will rape.

                      That not true we have study that rape according to some so-called expert is natural and apart of evolution. Not true human have figured it out. Still today it's for debate.

                      You don't have a standard of morality in your worldview. It's your opinion against the rapist opinion. It's your opinion against this expert conducting the study. Your world view can't determine what is right or wrong.

                      It's very interesting that someone who claims to study theology doesn't get it. I can understand to some degree that some people don't get it. But I expected more from you.

                  God > humans

                  It's like your saying that even if God exists, I should just do what I think is right or what other people think is right.

                  If you don't want to give, that's up to you. If you're referring to just giving in general ie. to the poor and needy, I just personally think that it's good to want to help others who are less fortunate.

                    @ozhunter: Who said god > humans?

                    Yes. Irrespectiveoof the existence of any higher power, you should do what is right and moral. Nothing trumps that. So much of most religions teaching is extremely bigoted and hateful, especially modern Christians.

                    I'm not getting into bible verses but the first tenth of a believers increase (income) literally belongs to god. In fact tithing is about the one thing the bible is very consistent on right throughout (funny that, the bit about giving church leaders your money made if safely through translation but nothing about gays or abortion)

                    You can't tell me you can have faith and be disobedient? Where in the bible does it say tithing is optional?

                    atheists do this too.

                    Atheists don't hide behind a God as an excuse for their atrocities, they go to jail. Don't normalise rape. Shame on you.

                      But what is right and moral? And why should I do that? If God doesn't exist, shouldn't I just do whatever makes me happy and for my own personal gain, regardless of who is harmed in the process?

                        Lets just say that it's my opinion, human beings that are clearly actually existing vs a super powerful guy no one has ever seen and can never show any actual proof of ever having existed.

                        If doing something that wrong and immoral makes you happy, then you're a bad person. And if you need the fear of the omnipotent cloud sitter to tell you not to do something bad, then you're a bad person with bad impulses who believes bad stories.

                        Not sure if you're serious or not. But yea, it doesn't use those exact terms.

                        Language, like our species, has evolved over time. If you're going to base your argument on semantics such as changing terminologies then you've pretty well already accepted your argument isn't that strong to begin with.

                        You absolutely can. Christians aren't some perfect people. We're humans too and have human desires just like everyone else.

                        So you're saying "human desires" are bad? Or that having them is fine so long as you don't act on them or? Why would God make you with such desires hard wired into you then? Drunk at the wheel again? Because it seems to me if it's about choice, if it's a test from God, then that would in turn mean there's a level of free will inherent with being a human, but that usually flies in the face of most of you guys' arguments too. Come to think of it, all you guys really do is argue.

                        This is what I think about tithing.

                        They didn't ask what you think about it, they asked where in the bible does it say it's optional.

                        Everyone tries to avoid jail where possible.

                        Wow really? Even the sinful gays who are just living their life they way they were made, and and, and those evil harlots who get abortions when it's a medical crisis and the mother would die at birth leaving no one to care for the child? Because I thought they were going to hell and they were just doing the best they could without harming anyone else walking the streets.

                            You can have your subjective belief systems and patterns of behaviour and go for it, but generally speaking, as with laws that are constructed and agreed to largely by entire societies, a base level of morality isn't really something super crazy to figure out. Don't hurt people who don't deserve it, don't rape people, try not to be a shithead, etc. I would say basic human decency is my moral code. Have I done stupid stuff? Yeah, of course. Do I feel bad about it? Yeah, of course. Morality. I thought it was funny when I clocked this kid in the nose for pushing me slightly in year 9, I don't now, I realize it was a dick move and the dude didn't even mean to push me into the railing. I feel like an (profanity) and I move on, you can't change how you've done stuff in the past, but you can always change your future. Basic. Human. Decency. Don't go around punching people in the nose for trivial undeserved stuff. Just like it's not unreasonable to say you shouldn't rape and murder people in a civilized society. It's not about individual standards, it's just basic decency. And to promote hatefulness and biogtry is to go against basic human decency. If you need the love of something you can't touch or see to stop you from doing something bad, then you're really just weak of character more than anything.

                            That's what I'm trying to say though. We can all have spins on things and believe what we want, but basic human decency should be pretty objectively recognized.

                              @TheDukeOfNukem: Law and social change. Marrying someone under 15 years old is legal in some countries and not illegal in others. It's different in every country. Law and society can't be the standard of morality. And you also since it's your opinion against another. You can't determine what's wrong or right in your worldview.

                              Your examples of abortion. Are the extreme cases. Most of the item it's not the case. It does not justify killing another human.

                              Prove for us a consistent way to determine what's right or wrong in your worldview? Law, society and yourself will all fail. What else you got to prove your point?

                                @gto21: Basic. Human. Decency.

                                First off, with abortion, what they're doing is none of your business. If they so much as got a little drunk one night, (profanity) up, and found out a few days later they were preggers, they have every right to terminate if they can't have the baby, or if they simply don't even want to have it, that's their right and none of your business. Second, on the subject, I think it's obviously awkward for situations where the father would like the child but the mother doesn't and she goes and gets it anyway, but that's a case by case and I'm not analyzing the whole thing right now, I'm only really saying it's not always as simple as just "silly girl got knocked up and canned the kid". Across the board for all abortions, it's the parent/s' decision, until that (profanity) is kicking in there, it's just some bacteria, to bring a child into the world only to pawn it off on the shit ass system we have in place for abandoned children (funnily enough, most of which have ties to religion, interesting…) where it will likely be abused and forgotten by 18 if it even makes it that far in life, when you could stop all that right now before the child is bigger than a pea, would be the real sin.

                                Since you never answer anyone's questions I'll just throw your own questions back at you and see if you'll answer them at least. Why don't you "prove for us a consistent way to determine what's right or wrong in your worldview? Law, society and yourself will all fail. What else you got to prove your point?" I'll be waiting. Oh, and since it's your post, the burden of proof falls on you, not me to disprove you, even though basic logic already has, and you've kinda just glossed over or straight avoided everyone's arguments against your uh, your… um… well I don't really know what to call all your bullshit tbh. I guess rhetoric would fit, but it's usually got a bit of thought behind it so I don't really wanna use the word here where there is none.

                                  What about the mother want baby but not the father. Will he also be able to kill the baby. Since he will be responsible for child support. Does he have a say?

                                    @gto21: I don't even know what you're trying to say here to be honest. But yeah, I'd say baby because it makes sense and is quicker to type than saying foetus. I can call my turds in the morning 20 different things and they are still a turd. I guess if you prefer I'll stick to calling them embryos or something, wouldn't want to confuse you.

                                    Ideally in the situation of any pregnancy both parents are around and have a say, but even if they are, if they have vastly differing views, only one side can win out. If the mom wants the kid, keeps the kid, and the dad doesn't, and leaves the mom for it, and they part on fine terms, then I think there really shouldn't be anything that makes the father pay child support if it's a mutually made decision and he's not there for the child. However we are not debating the validity of child support in a million different potential cases, it was abortion, which you've, yet again, tried to steer away from. The basic point, is that terminating the child should be at the discrection of the parents and no one else. Be that just the mother, or both of them. Sometimes situations suck, sometimes there isn't always winners, but forcing someone to go through 9 months of pregnancy, only to drop kick the kid into a (profanity) system, possibly losing their job in the process or at least being forced to take a good bit of time off, not to mention the physical and mental anguish that comes with being pregnant and birthing a human, I mean, no one should be forced to do that if there's a simple option that cancels the whole thing and hurts nobody.

                                    I mean, officially, a baby ain't alive until it's out the god damn womb and the cord has been cut, until then it's just an extension of the mother. If my toe gets frostbite and it's gonna spread to the rest of me if I don't cut it off, that's no different than having an abortion, it's an extension of the initial person doing something the initial person doesn't want, and just to clarify for you so you don't try to divert again, I'm saying initial for the sake of you, they are the only person in this situation. The pregnant woman and embryo in there, are one, until such a time they are not.

                                Yours, was a free calendar, that could be shipped to anyone in the whole country.

                                Let's pretend for a second that my movie thing could be applied to two thirds of the country, which it isn't, it's really just for people close to those cinemas and who happened to be available on those select nights, it still got more than your deal, and required more effort, in that you had to go there and do something, where yours was just something shipped to your house for free.

                                And I still got more upvotes.

                                Not that internet likes mean jack shit or anything, but you brought them up, you keep bringing them up, and you just don't seem to get how you're losing here.

                                Because Christianity and Anglicanism and Catholicism and so on aren't entirely identical, so they deserve to be broken down into individual groups as such. If you want to count them all as a collective, well, you're wrong to, but then the 10.8% of people with no religion or an other religion can also be lumped into the no belief one, meaning we'd be over 40%, which in turn would make for a pretty close split. But really, if we're joining groups together, why not throw Buddhism and Hinduism in with no belief too? We'll be the No Magic Jesus CollectiveTM, add a few wildly different things together (as you have with the Catholics and Christians) and you'll be overtaken there too.

                                  52.1% of Australians classify themselves Christian. So you break down Christianity. However, you take "no religion", "Not stated or unclear" and "other religion" as one group. Did I get your point correct?

                                  If I did understand your point can you explain how those 3 categories are entirely identical? Since "not entirely identical" is the word you used to split Christians.

That 52.1% is made up of multiple facets of faith, not all conforming to Christianity as any other version would have it. If you go up to a Catholic and say they're Christian, they will tell you otherwise, and yet, you're counting them as Christian again. Picking and choosing, again. Accept it.

                                    First off, not a very simple question, it's a poorly worded silly question that makes no sense being read and proves absolutely nothing, but I'll follow it anyway. Here we go. You say 52.1% of Australia identifies as Christian. Okay. You want me to "take 100 less that number". Okay. Well, I guess negative 152.1% of Australia identifies as Christian now. Is that what you wanted? Your point, as usual, made no sense. Accept it.

A very apt metaphor for religion in general if you ask me, out of touch, based on utter silliness, and has no idea how to defend itself against genuine criticism so it lashes out and implies all who disagree are wrong because… reasons?

              @bugman: That what the study says: "natural and biological phenomenon that is a product of human evolutionary heritage."

              You're saying it's chosen. But we have study says it's natural. I guess you will be against rape. From your worldview. It's your opinion against their opinion. Like I said your worldview can't prove it's wrong or right. From your own camp, some will say rape is natural others will say no. The same thing applies to homosexuality. Your worldview will always fail at proving what's wrong or right.

              Regarding your last point. First, not every Christians believe animals go to heaven or hell. (I never heard animal going to hell, But I heard the argument they are redeemed). Secondly, Christianity believes we live in a fallen world which also affects animals. Thirdly, homosexuality is not an unforgivable sin. And fourthly, if you see two male dogs having bum sex. Does that mean it should be natural for you as well to do it?

              Explain the comparison. If another species kill and eat their own species. So that means it's natural for you to kill and eat other human beings? I think that comparison fails even in your worldview.

                "Two dogs have bum sex" lol so your saying that's NOT natural…Then what is it??? Someone told them to do it?? Forced them poor dogs against their will to have some bum sex. Poor dogs, lucky your sins can be forgiven..

                Now on to canible ref/dog …did you even read what i said. YOUR agrument is THAT its not nautural. WHERE did i say because its natural its a free for all?? That's a totally different discusstion..I was pointing out that it is natural…

                  @bugman: For the third time. I'm not the one saying it's natural. The study mention natural and evolution. I'm not the one mentioning evolution.

                  I'm still waiting how it's wrong or right in your worldview.

                  Actually, we have Christians who have no problem with evolution.

                  Even in your worldview, certain animals will go extinct if they don't reproduce. In your own worldview, it's not natural.

                  I can show a study rape is natural. But you say human being should not do it.

                  And you want to argue homosexuality is natural. However, people can do it.

                  You have no consistency in your arguments. And you have no ground to determine what's right or wrong.

                  I found it interesting those defending homosexuality compare it to animals behaviour. I probably won't go that far.

                  People in the porn industry use animal. Male animals on top of human. As long as it's "natural" no one is forcing them, why don't you just promote that kind of bestiality as well? An animal and human having sex should not be an issue for you. Let me guess it will be natural but not free for all lol.

                    @gto21: Wow just wow.. what are you talking about… your really love talking about bum sex for someone who thinks its a sin… i like how you have not answered one of my questions. Your arguments make no sense.

                    "Im not the one mentioning evoultion" yes you are, you used as part if your argument as proof that rape is natural…??

                    My worldview??? How are Facts my worldview.. animals as you would say it "have bum sex".. that's fact.

                    Animals will go exisnt..makes no sense. I must have missed the part where i said ALL penguins are gay boys.

                    I can show you plenty of studies that rape is not natural..your point. Im pointing out facts you are not.

                    Comparing homosexuality to animals..for a start last time i checked we are all animals. Secondly…animals also eat… Do you eat?? …dont eat anything or i might compare you to one of those sinful penguins. SO Remember dont eat or your a gay penguin.

                    Ill try again
                    Is being gay a choice??
                    Do you think its natural?

                    Wow you must watch some strange porn. I woudnt want to see your browsing history..

                    As you would put it my worldview..i dont care if you gay or straight. Why would i??
                    Why do you keep telling people that they are less than you because of who they love??

                      @bugman: Let me try one more time. Quoting one study does not mean it's my opinion. I used it to prove that your argument is inconsistent. And your worldview flaws.

                      They won't extinct because not all of them are gay. You're proving my point, they will go extinct if they all turn gay. What you call natural can be the cause of the extinction of several species. I thought you worldview was about survival of species. It contradicts your own worldview. I can use your own worldview to prove it's not natural.

                      If you bring evidence that rape is not natural. It will be the opinion of someone compare to others. Since I can bring a study which says it's natural. Their no standard of morality in your worldview.

                      You keep saying I don't answer your questions. I've answered all your questions. While you keep diverting from my questions.

                      Can you answer if human and animal have sex without anyone forcing them. Will you call it natural and will you be a pro-bestiality activist as well?

                      I never said that homosexual is less than me. You don't have a point. So you're making up stuff.
