Good for you. It?s the right thing to do.
and the logical thing to do when faced with insufficient evidence is to withhold belief, not give it
I was primed. By God when I was 5 ? certainly not by my family (looooong story). I remember waking up one day knowing that God certainly exists. But it took 31 years for the rest of the story.
Well Moose...Its actually the opposite...I am more than proud ot be a Canadian but my leader embarrasses those of us who love this country with his juvenile thinking.
Who proposes that nothing became something except for creationists who propose a god FROM NOTHING that wished the infinite universe into existence FROM NOTHING?
Whether you believe it is from the devil or from natural evolutionary human behavior, it's still a Church whose clergy has been infected by evil.
But "What does the Bible teach" implies "I think." The former assertion depends on the latter. What would "meaning" mean with no subject to register the meaning?
Millennials are slowly learning what left wing and progressive politicians have on their bottom line.
Fair points, I have my reasons, I just don't think I can articulate them all that well without an essay.
Maybe he didn't want anyone to answer a question. This looks like one of those sermonette OPs, where someone makes a statement, and then moves on. Like leaving a Chick tract in a public washroom.
It looked to me like those who the derided the display are not from the intended audience. Like, why should a farm worker even interject when the stated purpose was to bring a bit of humor into the lives of mothers with small children?
Historical Jesus rose.
How do you figure that one? Religion condones slavery. That's for starters. The bible even talks about taking "others" as your slaves. The people who came here used religion to keep the races apart. They looked on Blacks as less of a human being. They looked at the Native Indians as pagan and worthy of death, just like in the bible. If you were not a WASP in early America you really had no standing. To be elected you had to be of the right religion. That's racism and includes anti Semitism.
Nope. The words of men says Adam.
Depends. If she was almost 17 and you had just turned 19, maybe. Depends on the person. I definitely wouldn't have allowed any talk of marriage to be going on before she was 18.
So you don't know the margins, or the margin of error. Got it.
>>"no one is trying to "impose" other views on you. Imposing would require a little help, like say the law..."<<
Well you are claiming that being pregnant is only a minor inconvenience and that the woman should lose autonomy because the fetus has separate DNA. I was pointing out that I will only temporarily inconvenience you by taking your kidney. My life is much more important than yours.
What is the "religion of anti-god"?
The Catholic church gutted everything of value out of Christian theology rendering it not only totally without value but also without any semblance of Christianity. All the Vatican did is corrupt scripture to serve its own selfish interests. To cap it off, reading scripture and thereby seeing the obvious falsehood of Catholicism was forbidden on pain of death.
Don't need it. No clowns here. Maybe Dougie can use it.
An autonomous region is synonymous with STATE. Fucking retard.
Genuine question: What is that like? How is it distinguishable from just thinking that you know the living God?
Yes, but what you perceive is limited, and the way you assemble into the so-called reality we imagine ourselves to see may not be the way it is...
That is so childish.
The singularity was not matter. It existed 13.8 billion years ago. Time did not exist until a few femtoseconds after the expansion began and gravity calved off from the other 3 primordial forces. Asking what occurred before time existed is akin to asking what is North of the North Pole.
Another cynic who thinks that Randi can prove a negative.
Are you having a seizure?
Need? No. Want? Sure. Ikea doesn't have a barrier that stops criminals.
No problem. Jokes sort themselves out after a while. The import factor is that we are Growing together to become the Family of God that He wants us to be. As it is always about the Family. In any species.
Can we start by comparing their main examples?
