One can't renounce xtianity without receiving the correct environmental/genetic input. One can't leave infancy without the passage of time. The analogy is good enough.

In the way that they're not analogous at all.

One is in a retarded mental state, so is the other. Therefor they are analogous.

Yes, imo. How could one believe in an all powerful, all loving god which allows childhood cancer and sends people to hell for all eternity?

Why is it a deadly sin, though? Can somebody die from pride? :ask:

They are called Deadly Sins because they are the root cause of all suffering from a Christian perspective
And so all immoral acts have their origins in one or more of them regardless of how they are manifested

You just answered this yourself. Because of environmental factors that aren't their fault. Or do you now think they have responsibility for their own beliefs and actions?

Twaddle! Delusional =/= retarded.

"Retarded" is not the right word to use.
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

Hello Fallible, nice to see you. No it's not their fault, they're just fucking retarded, like fucking cancer; there's nobody to blame just agitating influences.

They're clearly not all retarded, this is a silly argument. Is Professor Robert Winston retarded? Don't be ridiculous.
