If a student asks the teacher in a physics class whether it is possible to turn water into wine or to walk on water, should the teacher say "no" or should he say "I think you need to discuss that with your preacher" or should he say "Yes, if you follow a proper fermentation process" or " Yes, if you freeze the water first?" ;)
I don't care about this reality show type of wedding. Adding in bible nonsense is hilarious.
That's what I mean, that old inferiority complex.
Then go retake 6th grade science.
ME TOO!! Now watching Star Wars is like watching the same political crap I see in the news every day.... lol (although I do go to see the new ones (strictly for entertainment purposes. mind you....lol)).
But seriously: how do you know if yogurt's gone bad?
Gee, like I haven't tried. But hey, don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. I think it is a righteous idea. Maybe if people actually sat down, in front of each other, and talked one on one, or in groups, and not on the damn impersonal internet? Maybe, just maybe? We would all see we are all human and not really so different than each other, under the skin.
I completely understand that you never employ logic or reason.
I got a free doughnut. Today has been a good day
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.?
Good Jobs in the aircraft industry, but they are about an hour away from that specific house in Eureka (we actually tried to buy the one 2 doors down for 16,000, and got sniped). Wichita Metro has a population of about 400,000 and is home to Learjet, Cessna, and Spirit Aero (they make the body of the Boeing 737). Wichita State University is pretty sizeable. Lots of big agriculture stuff around here to. Good jobs there too.
Being a good person is not enough it seems. Believing that the story of Jesus is a true story is the most important thing. Not only is that a dumb and weird criteria for rewarding people with eternal life, it is also cruel and punitive to even believers.
..more like helping you pull the weeds out, though propaganda isn't bad if its coming from God. Gods not running for election or selling Himself...not if He is. It just is so, and we take it or leave it right? Go find out if its so. Use your brain and thoroughly test the prophecy as it says to
You do understand that "unified" and "some" are mutually exclusive? If it was a unified view, that all would have the same view, not just some.
Didn't give it much thought.
I'm not circumcised.
Of course God can deal with iron chariots, but since you don't know what the relationship between the Christian God and his people looks like youre likely going to continue assuming what this OP assumes (that God cant do much).
False, I DO know who is and who is not a Christian.
"You initially defined what was "positive" in terms of less people not less suffering."
I'm not talking about Jesus -- I am referring to his followers.
God does call us to worship Him, but obviously not for His own sake, since we cannot add anything to His completeness. He is lacking nothing.
I'm an atheist who does also identify as an anti-theist.
You- "The minds of yesteryear..." How poetic you wax. You mean those courageous souls like Newton who had recurrent nervous breakdowns since he had little insight into the spiritual growth training, as I explained above? Those would be the ones that that modern Therapeutic Psychologists have confirmed as healthy. Then there is C Huygens who was also plagued by depression, Einstein?s rather craven emotional abandonment of his second wife as she was dying, and atheist Philosopher M Ruse?s assessment of R Dawkin?s as rather ill-informed about Religion.
Sometime before the beginning I suppose. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.
But, his job

I admit that I made no comment about emotions and value experiences being at all necessary for the empirical sciences.
In the UK we don't have different parts of a park for small or large dogs, they all just mix together in parks that are open to anyone. I have had 2 small dogs one medium and 2 large. Sometimes the small ones can be the worst I have found but generally we don't have any problems with dogs of all shapes and sizes playing and mixing together, most of them happily off lead.
I didn't vote for any Liberal candidate while McGuinty was leading the Liberal party.
Are you saying not to jail the business owners but only the employees? I am not sure what you are advocating for here.
I liked the system in Heinlein's "Starship Troopers" (the book, not the abomination of a movie). Service is voluntary, BUT you are only allowed to vote or hold certain jobs if you completed your term. The reasoning is that only those who have been willing to write the fabled blank check understand all that full citizenship means. (He explains it better). That might have some positive influence....
Again, it never even got to that point of the transaction.
Following the current laws in Ireland abortion carries a penalty of 14 years in prison. That I would say is wrecking a persons life.
I knew a couple just like this when I worked at a retirement home. He was pleasant; she was horrid.
