I am Pro-Body Sovereignty and Rights Against Genital Mutilation in Females, Males, as well as Intersex Persons.

The Principles of Body Sovereignty   1. Every individual owns his body.   2. As owner of his body each individual has the right to decide:   (a) where it is located (b) how it is housed or clothed (c) how it is nourished (d) how it is maintained. (e) how it is trained or disciplined.   3. As owner of his body each individual has the right to determine what goes into it (food, drugs, organs) and the disposition of what comes out of it (tissue, excrement, work.)   4. As owner of his body each individual has the right to decide what is done to and with his body (sexual relations, medical procedures, physical contact.) Every individual owns the products of his body (work, ideas, organs, tissue, waste.) Ref Damien, I support your atheism and I believe in a Godless universe, I do support tradition. Going against circumcision is like trying to restrict woman’s right to choose by those who oppose you. They want the government out of your business, but inside your pants. What you are advocating here has the smell of the same kind of intervention. Let them do it if they believe it’s important, if this is what they view as their religious obligation. The kid will not remember the single moment of pain. I don’t, and I bet, you don’t. There is no long term damage in consequence. So don’t fight it; let it go. My Response, what about child’s body sovereignty rights? What matters more to you violation of ethics or tradition, and if you think a violation of rights is ok...

Questions and Challenges to My Atheism.

I am often amazed, sometimes frustrated, and even at times horrified by fideists, theists, and religionists because of their wild beliefs and similarly wild arguments trying to defend them. They will challenge every proof science can demonstrate that is not in line with what they want to believe or outright contradicts their wishfully thinking and yet believe wild accounts, magical thinking, or some book of fables with nothing but proof devoid empty claims that either have no demonstration or that fail when a demonstration is attempted. Anyone who likes bible fairytales should really let them go as we have The Lord of the Rings. Damien, I have made many hard-core atheists admit god is possible.   Well cool you can try. Before you get started trying to get me to concede to some possibility in reality that connects to the term god, if you think you can. To me you must say what is a god. And not some made up term found in uncredible holy books or some wishful thinking somethingness. Likewise, you mist say how you establish the term gods beingness and attributes or definition, its place in space and or time and how you know this or have good reason to think this with some valid and reliable reason and evidence that only points to the reported beingness and attributes or definition of what you say the term god entails. Damien, if atheism is supposed to be based on pure rational thought, meaning that only things which are tangible to the 5 senses are to be considered real and valid, then how do you reconcile that actual fact...
