Lol..smug is good.
The only difference between a religion and a cult is its popularity in a culture.
Yes, that?s what I thought.
You mean the god you can't prove exists.
Good point. The lack of self-disclosure and lack of self-possession inherent in uncontrolled egotism. Full of assumptions emboldened by the accomplishments of a secularized Christian culture operating with a social fabric of Christian assumptions.
I do live them, even though I consider the Bible as a purely human endeavour and a mythological creation. Although the Gospel Christ of faith presented in the Gospels is fictional and has little if anything to do outside of the name of Jesus that led a movement known as The Way in first century Judea, does not mean that the teachings presented in the Greek accounts are not valuable.
Most toddlers get it too. Never heard a mother say 'How would you like it if.........'? This is not rocket science.
can't help you mate.
So are you saying that god allows, even produces, these things to keep us in line?
Propaganda lie #2: ?It?s the woman?s body?. If it was the woman?s body that we are debating, it would be the woman who dies. Instead it is the life of the baby that we are debating. The choice she is making is whether or not to kill her baby. To condone such an act is not loving women.
We're free in this country FROM THE GOVT to express our views.
What is unquestionable and undeniable is.....
Not Christendom. Western world secular societies arose as people started throwing off the shackles of the church.
yea in a way I suppose..the word "agree" is what I don't particularly understand. Why does anyone need to agree with another person that they are going to have an opinion. lol It just is.
Prove its not correct.
I have no use for your newest tall tails.
I did NOT say anti-theists hurting science is blatantly untrue. I said that's too strong a statement. Did you read anything I said before? The question is whether religion is affecting scientific inquiry by some scientists' bias against anything that possibly be construed as allowing room for religion. The issue is well put by Gould and Noble, as I said.
LOL what has Carrie got to do with a feminine side? Hold your water until I am done or you get the switch...
Robert A. Heinlein had a quote which is fitting... "An armed society is a polite society. Manners are necessarily good when one may have to back up his acts with his life."
Ruling by fear is the sign of decline. Not power. Historically speaking.
What science in the Bible?
It wasn?t as if she was selling a few dime bags or eightballs for extra cash.
Care to point to where?
Ella. Go get ?em.
I hope so, i dearly hope that the Ford Conservatives cut out a lot of government jobs and the idiotic redundancy such as LHINS and Sub-Lhins.
Be it 4 or 5%, my point remains. You smear an entire faith and 95% of innocent priests for the actions of a significantly small percent of the whole.
Yeah her comments in the article were more enlightening. And to her sentiment, I can definitely empathize. It's just unfortunate he took the brunt of it. I think the two just need to have a conversation.
How can us all ending up at the same destination be reconciled with evolution's progress via diversity ?
I've seen at least one person here defending that not only were Adam and Eve white, but so was Jesus with some seriously impressive (and face palmy) mental gymnastics. I wish I remembered who it was.
Work too hard?
....I am vaguely remembering something but I can't find an image!
There Is Nothing More Despicable Than a Democrat
