-10000 for both em i'd bet.
Thanx, snafubar. My Dad passed a few years ago and that was thoughtful of you to say. We used to goof on him because he was on a base where they inspected/redacted the soldiers letters home. (Maybe some of your Dad's?) They had a huge warehouse with over 700 Panamanian women going through the mail and 10 G.I.'s walking among them. "Some War hero you were, Daaad!" "Oh, the haaardships" Too funny. He actually said that it was VERY difficult being in that warehouse with all those women in 90+ to 100+ degree heat and them in various stages of undress trying to stay cool. "Cleavage!" (he wouldn't say tits.) "Cleavage, everywhere, for almost 4 years!! It was a terrible thing for a young boy to go through!"
Trust your own instincts. You can't go far wrong there.
If you can just hang on for the next 6 1/2 years...It might go away...lol
It would have been neat if they had replaced the "voice of God" for "Jesus"
The topics are about religion. There's no obligation to being a member of any particular religion to comment on a topic concerning religion.
Reason cannot prove anything outside of reason. It's confined to its purview, and is incomplete (but completely reliable) even there. So reason will never be able to prove that any specific god does not exist. It does, however, prove that you can't prove that one does. Trying is like playing with Lego? Jello.?
They need LOTS of time to "investigate". After all, it took them over 200 YEARS to embellish James Callender's yellow journalism about President Jefferson's (imagined) dalliance with his slaves.
Humans wrote the Bible, get over it. Whether they were deluded into thinking they were channeling a god or just BSing is irrelevant.
Yea ...this too in unacceptable. Deleting.
So you've simply mistaken occurred with occurring. Past tense with future tense. Things that have occurred- occurred. We have ONE example of our earth. This isn't counting cars driving by. This isn't the likelihood of an Ace of Spades dropping next from a four deck shuffle.
Were these victims not "true Christians"?
Do you think the universe came about from nothing? I don't know, I'm just asking.
Not giving you the answer you want doesn't mean I didn't answer you. It means you've decided what is appropriate for me to believe, and is unbelievably arrogant. I have never ridiculed you or questioned your intelligence or sanity because you choose not to believe in God. It's not inappropriate to expect the same courtesy.
That's between them and their "god." I don't believe any such thing exists, so I don't care what its rules are.
"The Apostles EDWARD and JESSE"...
Use the one that you relate to most today.
A loaded, unfair situation. He punished man for acting exactly how he made them to act. He prompted them. That's entrapment and entirely illegal.
Again. Christian leaders can be progressive or liberal.
