A lunatic cult led by a jackass named Fred Phelps. The WBC is known for its endless condemnation of homosexuals. The church claims to practice the purest form of Christiantiy, a claim that couldn't be further from the truth. The WBC's ideology is based on a severe distortion of Christian doctrine. If Jesus Christ ever visited this "Church", he would probably be dismayed and horrified by its practices. Heck, even many evangelicals consider the WBC un-Christian.
The entire Westboro Baptist Church is bound for hell.
A sniveling atheist who blindly opposes religion. He doesn't even try to understand what he opposes because thinks it isn't worth understanding.
Richard Dawkins is to atheism what Fred Phelphs is to Christianity.
A theory that the evolution of life on Earth was set in motion and/or guided by God.
It's a very rational theory. Unfortunately, it's not taken seriously by either atheists or Christians who believe in Creationism. Atheists don't like because it acknowledges the existance of God, and Christian creationists don't take it seriously because they think it conflicts with the Bible. Actually, theistic evolution is indeed compatible with Scripture. The "Seven Days of Creation," for instance, may not have been actual days, but very long periods of time. Also, the description of Man's creation in Genesis seems to imply some sort of process. And contrary to the concerns of some Christians, theistic evolution does not preclude the existence of the human soul or the distinction between Man and other life on Earth. God could have waited until Man had evolved to the point of sentience, then given them souls and dominion over nature.
Also, theistic evolution's theory of an intelligent power being responsible for the evolutionary process may explain some of the problems of evolutionary theory in general.
Theistic Evolution is distinct from Intelligent Design. While theistic evolution accepts the existence of a Creator on faith, Intelligent Design seeks to prove the Creator's existence.
Atheist: Life on Earth evolved into its present state without the intervention of a Creator.
Christian Creationist: Noooo, it was created in its present state by God in 7 days.
Christian Theistic Evolutionist: Actually, evolution could have been the means by which God created life.
Atheist & Christian Creationist both: That's ridiculous!
Christian Theistic Evolutionist:(sighs) I can't win here.
A style of alternative rock that evolved from grunge in the mid-90's. Post-grunge employs the distorted guitar, vocal dynamics, and lyrical tone of traditional grunge music, albeit in a more radio-friendly manner.
Post-grunge can be plain hard rock or edgy alt-metal. A few post-grunge bands, like Chevelle, Breaking Benjamin, and Godsmack cross over into Nu-metal.
Types of Post-Grunge:
Three Days Grace
Puddle of Mudd
3 Doors Down
The other important British heavy metal band, next to Black Sabbath. They're a decent band, they're not godlike like most fans say, nor do they suck @$$ like the haters claim. Have you ever noticed that all the UD definitions of this band fall on the two extremes of opinion?
I mean, there are the people that drool on the band's shoes, and those that pi$$ on them.
Iron Maiden uber-fan: OMDG, Iron Maiden rule all!
Iron Maiden non-fan: Noooo, they suck big time!
Reasonable person: Iron Maiden are OK. They good, but not great.
Uber-fan and non-fan both: FAGGOT! Hey, we agree on something!
Reasonable person: *groans*
What many parents in modern America are guilty of.
Many years ago, parents were happy to accept responsibility for making sure their children grew up right. Not so today.
Today, parents look to others, mainly the government, to take care of their children while they go off and engage in "adult" activities. They put their toddlers in "daycare centers," enroll their children in government-run "public schools," and depend on organizations like the MPAA to decide what kinds of media their kids should be allowed to view.
Naturally, this type of "parenting" can cause the kids to grow up dysfunctional, ruining an entire generation.
Abdication of parental duties oughta be a capital offense.
A once-noble noble movement that has been hijacked by socialist lunatics. Environmentalists say that capitalism is bad for the environment, conveniently ignoring the fact that wealthy capitalist countries have the best environmental conditions. If capitalism really was harmful to the environment, then the receding Iron Curtain should have revealed a green Eden. Instead we see environmental conditions worse than the West.(How about the Chernobyl diaster?)
The biggest threat to the environment is not capitalism or industrial civillization, but environmentalism itself.
