You're correct, you can't hurt Jesus (who, by the way, isn't the Christ) because he's been long dead and gone.
In my experience on this board, we all have our preferred "urban legends" but most people--no matter which side of an argument they are on" are always to have a deeper exploration of a given point.
Don't argue with them Prov. It's not worth it. Believe Romans 1 when it says they DO know of him.
For the death and resurrection? No, not at all. Plus books aren't exactly good evidence for supernatural events, especially when we can't validate any of the claims.
There should be a PSA...Attention all racist assholes at Yale: When you see a person sleeping in a common area in a building that requires a swipe card and pin code to get into, AND they have a pile of papers in front of them it's pretty f*cking safe to assume they're a student. Mind your own. Or hey, maybe offer to make the person a cup of coffee so they can finish out their assignment under the influence of a warm caffeine buzz.
You're either mental, or trying to be funny. (unfortunately, the end result of either possibility is not even slightly amusing...)
in my opinion
It wasnt dismissed on it's merits. It was settled out of court for $900something thousand dollars.
Trump called the Eagle players unpatriotic in comments concerning their absence at the White House. What does the Philly players standing for the anthem have to do with this discussion ? More liberal schoolyard distracting ? Deflecting perhaps ? NO! I have it ... fake ass news !!
That's an uncalled for threat.
"Because, of course, the 1st Amendment doesn't really have much of anything to do with any current conflicts in America, real world. "
Rest assured, no-one here is saying that you're not allowed to believe in your god. What they are saying, though, is that you have no reason to believe in god.
And by the way on socialism how many Venezuelas do we need or are you going to use the "no true Scotsman" argument. Socialism is a form of theft.
Want to what's "Wrong -- morally wrong"? YOU, a heterosexual, trying to *tell me* why I'm a homosexual. THAT is wrong -- morally wrong. You have exactly ZERO CLUE.
Ha. In Jain cosmology, the universe is self-existent and eternal and works in repeating cycles of 6 epochs lasting about a quadrillion years pre cycle... I'm not a Jain or scholar on the subject, but that's my rough understanding...
I'll take short and thick over tall and skinny anyday. But that's none of my business.
I don't blame you. It would seem just as stupid each time.
Many bible scholars don't believe jesus said anything in the Gospel of John from which you quote. Where in the synoptics do you find similar mythology?
The more you respond the more it seems that you would be leading a pretty self-destructive lifestyle if it weren't for fear of some sky father.
Just stating FACTS, trying to educate younger people that if they live below their means and save money they too can have a great retirement! So we are now supposed to think 1.5% GDP "growth" and not a single year of 3% GDP growth (Obama's 8 year average) is a booming economy? When the fed keeps interest rates at ZERO percent for 7 years NO ONE in their right mind could call that a booming economy! The fed raises interest rates during booming economies to stave off inflation! Then again there are many like you who aren't in their right mind!
Yes you said that yesterday so posted a discussion this morning. lol
No it wasn't. I anxiously await whatever it is you will post in support of your claim though...
I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.
Think about so-called "people in poverty." Those who think most is determined before will advocate different policies. They will look at the welfariate differently than those who know that people make choices freely. The idea of responsibility for them changes. And on and on.
