Do you agree with the premise, "All human infants are born atheists?"
It is intellectual dishonesty to claim something written by someone who barely theist and was known to be such at the time and probably would not even maintain the social pretense today is a proof of a intimate, involved God.
The bible explicitly shows God doing the confusing.
"... so when did you become a non-christian?"
Timeless truth has a history. Fads come and go .The Bible is God's truth for mankind for all time. If it were a mere product of man alone this would not be true. If the Bible were not God's word, we wouldn't care about it.
There was no need to elaborate because he answered the question based on the very thing he said it couldn?t be answered from. Hermeneutics! :) I hope I was just as respectful, if I wasn?t I apologize. Thanks
I've never understood that idea that Christianity was invented by a bunch of religious people just consolidating power. It doesn't make sense when you see how they still refused to turn away from Christ even when they were tortured and killed slowly. If it was all a lie made for power, then those who told the lie would die such painful deaths for it if they could avoid it.
Near stars or distant? It would depend on the distance involved as to how accurate the data is. Mars was once in a life zone status (if all the data coming in from the nasa orbiters is correct). IF a far distant star had a similar fleeting life zone we would be hard pressed to see it. It would depend on the propagation front of the event and would have to coincide with our time of observation (a few hundred years). For the vast majority of the examined objects the time/light distance is such that we would have missed the fleeting formation of a life zone that lasted only 40 thousand years or so (likely what Mars had) with our current level of technology.
Is that what God does? If he helps why didn't God help my innocent friend who died for no reason while the guilty roam free? Ok fine. Forget the one-offs. How about the countless wars declared in his name? Ok fine! Let's skip the random meaningless murder for a second; shall we? How about the racist, sexist, phobic soup we've all been drowning in because of him? And I'm not just talking about Jesus but all organize religions. Exclusive groups created to manage and control. The dealer getting people hooked on the drug of hope. His followers nothing but addicts; who want their hit of bullshit to keep their dopamine of ignorance! Addicts afraid to believe the truth; that there is no order. There's no power. That all religions are just metastasizing mind worms meant to divide us; so it's easier to rule us. By the charlatans that want to run us. All we are to them is paying fanboys/girls of their poorly written Sci-Fi franchise! If I don't listen to my imaginary friends why the fock should I listen to yours? People think their worship's some key to happiness. That's how he owns you even I'm not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality So Fock God! He's not a good enough scapegoat for me... - Elliot Alderson (Mr. Robot)
The Republican Party platform of the 1850s was dedicated to putting an end to the 2 great threats to the American Republic: Slavery, and Polygamy.
I didn't get kicked out of the Red Hen. I wouldn't have gone into that restaurant in the first place, I don't give my money to the dark side!
Morals over murder are not concrete or there would be no war.
A service he offers to the public. I swear, you're being intentionally obtuse here.
We looked after a 23 year old (I think) cat for my wife's friend. I thought it passed any time it stopped moving or feel asleep. Thankfully he made it until she came back from vacation.
What?s its name?
Apparently the shithole was a place ugly Sarah wanted to go?
Spiritually agnostic. I can't find the arrogance to say that there is nothing greater in the universe than me.
you're not drunk enough and nether am I.
A great many (straight) men think that if anything goes in their ass, it's a sign of being gay. There are a great many (straight) men who are idiots who are missing out on some nice prostate pleasures.
I don't believe that we don't have a large enough workforce. It's about incentives. I wouldn't work 14 hour days for $10 an hour picking produce, but illegal workers would.
Who's "whiny", exactly?
