Sure, I wasn't meaning to imply otherwise. I'm not sure if Phinehas's comment has been refined since or if I just overread into it but I'm really just talking about whether the authors of the Bible intended for it to be taken literally or as myth.
I agree, there are times when you have to let them fail. My ex and I would get in fights about that. He always wanted to prevent them from making mistakes or failing because he felt like it meant he failed as a parent, whereas I think it is ok for them to fail and make mistakes (within reason and as long as the aren't in danger) because those are learning experiences.
He perhaps wanted to be accepted...but ultimately got rejected....by everyone. Banned by Harlem Shake and hopefully soon he'll lose his job at Rutgers.
Not to get political and all but..................
You are probably not familiar with the US justice system. In the Common Law system what is law is decided by courts of jury. By the people.
Again, Paul is the apostle of the Gentiles, Rom. 11:13. Signs/miracles are for the Jews. John 4:48; 1Corinthians 1:22. Again, if you have read it then you would know.
Their paws are irresistably cuter than hands. : )
Kap's attorney says they have it, though it could be grandstanding.
You need to get on that lol
I?m only against it when my breathing is compromised because I?m getting choked (for obvious reasons). Or when there?s not enough lube. Lube is important. And consent ?that?s an ABSOLUTE must. Never presume that
Nope. Read those word counts again. Critical thinking would lead people to see the Bible as an "Evil Book", not the "Good Book". Try it sometime.
Evolutionists spend so much time trying to disprove a god. ??
Obviously the teachings associated with the Christ figure did not write themselves, and we know that they were floating around as an oral tradition before they were written down within 100 years of his alleged historical appearance. The person who wrote the "Word", who came up with that, creatively, most certainly existed.
Well... we almost had a contender for winner. And then he copped out and suggested he wasn't being quite such a hedonist.
Obama was an incredible liar.
They shouldn't have abandoned their daughter. They brought this drama on themselves.
I blocked Mel because she kept sending me dick pics
1. Anyone who can justify killing another human being, because their deity tells them it is okay, is immoral. Any deity that asks you to kill a child is immoral.
You are full of bigoted hatred.
Then I'll pray for you.
I'm sure all of the above played some sort of role in driving down troll attacks here on The Atlantic Discussions. But the overall thrust of responsible communities fending off attacks by expending their energies against those waves of trolls is that one's energy is thus diverted from writing and publishing material that is far more politically effective. That's also one of the major aims of troll factories and individual trolls devoted to specific causes and candidates.
How about Mike Stahl who wants atheists registered like sex offenders. Or Mike Crook who wants atheists and lgbt to be made a death penalty punishment?
yes, cause the idiot right loves these culture war stories
Correct. You're attributing a lot of stuff to god that people did, or that people claim god did. God is love. It's that simple.
Those are good questions. I would point out, at risk of being persnickety, that those questions address a religion's
Were you making a similar accusation against the MSM during the Obama years? That, at least, would have been accurate.
