What you should realize is the polls all indicate religiosity is decreasing in this Country - as it does in all industrialized societies. Criticism of faith is the consequence of tearing back the veil of privilege around faith and exposing it for what it is - superstition.
Well, I'm accustomed to the taste of crow (there are *no* good recipes) so I predict:
Didn't everyone do that back then? Be hard to find any place that was truly tolerant in them days, from Peking to Andalusia.
The third largest and fastest growing human demographic agree with us both in the matter of the nonexistence of all the millions of imaginary gods and the fraudulent nature of the religions that invented those fake and nonexistent gods,
lol maybe. he's a new employee that i 'manage,' so we had one of those introductory convos weeks ago in which somehow he realized i liked the offspring and made a point that no one in his home likes that kind of music as well..
It is common view (in my experience) that Moses is a fictional character. Not only did he not exist but the whole Isrealities being slaves and escaping, 40 years in desert etc. That is all just fiction with no historical evidence for any of that. So if okay to compare them with Jesus you ar saying it is okay to compare a fictional character with Jesus.
In Christianity death is the beginning of an eternal existence in Heaven. Something we look forward to. Therefore it gives joy to the person who has died and hope and joy to the family and friends that would otherwise be only mourning.
Yes - why wouldn't he?
You are full of shit. Do you have any evidence you want to submit, you weak minded fuck?
Why do they need to? When I grew up, our schools didn't teach it and we knew anyway.
well i have a shopping for a house nightmare story for you house hunters..
On the debt, I don't really think any of the simple answers of the parties is acceptable. It takes complex thought on how to begin to reduce it. This involves cancelling programs, reducing them, stopping Capone like Hydro cartels, deciding when positions are paid too much AND too little, etc., etc.
In the channels ive been to yes
....& your point?
Mohamed is a Messenger of God Peace be upon him. Only people with blind heart cannot admit this fact. Even blind people can feel something when listening to the Quran. Try to admire this universe to know there is a creator behind all of this. If you will believe in a creator, then we will discuss about prophets.
Sorry -- that doesn't qualify as evidence. LOL!
WHy venezuela?? Lots of countries with higher GDP per capita than the USA. We are 20 trillion dollars in debt... so at this point US capitalism doesn't even work.
Try writing about someone 40 years after they?ve died purely based on memory and stories told about them. You can bet things are going to be embellished quite a bit.
You need to be dead for carbon dating to work you know, it will always show the age of the last thing you ate. :-)
This is but a tacit affirmation for man and woman to marry. It is not a proscription against same sex marriage. Jesus also never discussed flush toilets are laptops. Are those also against the Bible?
I am hiding under the bed but must soon come out and face the day. My hope is that people like Fedeli, Elliot, Mulroney, etc will bring some sanity; my fear that he will be just like Trump.
We will see.
How do you define "etc"?
I don't think either one of you want to be with the other and neither of you are mature enough to say it so you are both stuck waiting for the other person to say it.
"You affirm the death and resurrection of Jesus! "
The fact that that can be a sentence says a lot about Christians. You know the whole moral code and loving thy neighbour and all that other crap.
But not the after party
Thanks Tex. You confirmed what I I always felt was true but I never knew for sure. Like Gracie, I don't have any credit cards either and always wondered if it was gong to be bad for me later on.
The RCC is like the NRA and gun control no knee jerk reactions. There have been sex scandals in the Catholic Church as far back as the 4th century (we are currently in the 21st). Commissions have been formed and studies have been commissioned, I am sure this is so the church can determine the correct course of action. It took 350 years for the church to admit it mishandled Galileo, maybe the victims in Chile will get an apology in 250 years. Progress.
Personal comment and definitely
the Russian military is absolutely no match for the US. and a war would absolutely cripple that country. China exceeds the US in manpower only. every single other aspect of the US military is far superior to the Chinese. again, there would be no contest.
Also, it seems you equate "knowledge" to "proof", which I do not.
The Klan was not nearly as big as the alt-right, and also was never legitimized by any US government. It was always viewed as crazy psycho racists, whereas the alt-right has millions and millions of sympathizers.
Namecalling deleted, Deb. Keep it civil please.
Paul explicitly recognizes his position as an apostle involves giving the teachings of Christ, not his personal opinion. When he does offer his personal opinion he brackets it out with a caveat that it is his opinion because he is aware of the seriousness of teaching his own opinions as doctrine as he does in 1 Corinthians 7.
