Weapons of mass destruction, water and air pollution, vastly inequitable distribution of wealth, etc. aren't blessings. These are all results of the "advancements" of modern technological developments.

Don't forget widespread drugs and abortions.

Do you consider birth-preventing methods that allow conception but prevent the zygote from surviving, to be the equivalent of fetal abortion? That's the pill and the patch methods.

What about condoms and spermicides to prevent conception entirely? Any problem with that?

As for "drugs", those have been around for millennia.

I said the enemies of God receive the same blessings. Just as the Sun and the rain are not to be blamed for murder, so it is with the knowledge and application of the laws of nature. My point was about their origin.

Zygotists weep for the one-celled result of fertilization. It's because of the religious conviction that a zygote is a full-fledged human being.

So, analogy, not planting an acorn means killing an oaktree!

Imposing this religious view on all women is the equilvalent of Christian Sharia Law. God bless the Separation of Church and State!

What about condoms? Many (erroneously) think that the Bible says not to spill your "seed" (meaning sperm) upon the ground. So, capture it in a condom!

Save the Sperm! It's human and has a right to life!!!

To use a condom is implicitly worse than withdrawing your seed in my opinion. Yet abortion is worse than both and is explicitly forbidden by the prophets, as is fornication and adultery.

Re: Bow to leper messiah!

He will kill those you love if you don't bow to him and exalt him as "God" and "Master", even if they worship him. He has no honor.
