George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin were no fools. :-)
you're not drunk enough and nether am I.
I don't get this either. Like I said, we've all silently judged, but to share that with them serves no purpose.
Yes, that saying has a multitude of uses, doesn't it? Have you ever used that expression: "He jumped the gun."? How many different contexts might you have used that over the years, besides at a real life track meet with a real gun or something? That is why it is called a "figure of speech". Ditto with that leavening metaphor, I would guess. The literal act of leavening bread with a little leaven, is benign. A fact more known to common folk who know the baking lingo, than modern folks who buy their bread already both leavened AND baked.^
"There is nothing in scripture to condemn the keeping, buying and selling of slaves."
More phoney charges by the head witch hunter. I wish Mueller would give Hildabeast the same treatment. She'd transmorgrify him into a maggot if he did, but witches are more his speed.
Nope. You are making logical fallacies. Its all you have
One of those rides that goes way way wayyy up and then plummets down.
" You can read the same verse and discern an entirely different meaning."
I mean I would argue it?s a cult. When you have to escape, it?s a cult. My church lets me come and go
Paradox is a phenomenon that demands thorough investigation.
"Are you equating free markets with the incestous military industrial complex or any other corrupt government dispensation program?"
Sorta sounds like the Kennedy family.
I'd upvote this 10 times if I could.
no, you don't. Anybody can create an entity with all kinds of qualifications and then say, 'see, it's only possible for god'
the law does not require you do what a smart person would do. the law does not require you to call the cop "sir." the law does not require you to be friendly. the law does not require you to bend over backwards to accommodate every thing the cop asks you. these are all things that are smart, and make an experience with police more likely to end well........ but the cop is not legally entitled to expect or demand them. you can call the cop chump, and curse like a sailor....... while standing instead of sitting...... and there is not a GD thing the cop can do about it.... that is where these cops were wrong. the guy was detained.... not leaving.... he was available for questions and identification... he was not fighting or threatening them..... they had no right to demand he sit just because they said so...... no matter how "smart" it would have been to do so. you have the right to be stupid.
Great, ... you be sure to let me know if you have anything to say that is not blatantly obvious.
This is horrible logic...you're essentially arguing that a deity must exist because wind exists although we can't see it?
Your scribblings are fascinating...But they smack of gibberish.
I'd be okay with that. Some neighborhoods in Detroit are improving btw.
I have an anxiety problem. I can look at the world and feel that things are going very wrong and find myself in a state. When I stop and see that those around me are in the same situation but not panicking, I consciously force myself to calm down in spite of my own natural alarm systems going off. Medication helps, and that stark contrast in my own perception with medication on/off shows me how unreliable my own thoughts are.
A succinct summation of the whole religion industry!
Hi Sir Tainley
Until you?ve encountered demons and or other spirits, you don't qualify to judge what is authentically supernatural. You seriously do not have a clue of what you are talking about. By reading the comments in this discussion, you have a lot of company.
1) Karl Popper noted that words, and definitions are of little value. It is hypotheses that we are interested in, and any hypotheses can be rephrased to use very different words and definitions.
There is no such thing as "true communism" outside of a monastery. There is no socialist/collectivist system (Socialism, fascism, communism) where the people are allowed any real power. They might be allowed to vote, but those in power will always get 80-99% of the vote because those in power count the votes. The goal IS control of the economy. When you control retirements, healthcare, property rights, and the economy, what else is there? Just government.
