not at all! the split and delegation of the imperial power was a necessity. it was an attempt to delegate the enormous task of running the empire and to try and ensure some kind of peaceful succession, which was a total clusterf*ck throughout the history of the empire.
and that's why science never allows theses things to become more than a "theory". That covers them for those instances they could in no way envision
You might be right. But I don?t believe it?s because of some injustice to women. I just think women are more beautiful than men. Now there?s a poll for you.
I don't recall where I said PP should be tax payer funded though so I'm not clear on why you're asking me this question. And what does the NRA have to do with this particular discussion?
As someone who has experience with the homeless and the programs that exist for helping them- tell you friend to stop. I don't care if they are Christian or Atheist. Giving cash to panhandlers is bad. It perpetuates drug and alcohol abuse and facilitates extending mental issues that are often the root cause of addiction and homelessness.
In other words, Is there a way to not use this one incident against all women thay come forward? How often this happens is relevant.
LOL. I never had anyone ask me about my credit score on a date. That would be funny.
It sure is, actually. Your god is unneeded for scientific discoveries and theories to work.
But without, there would have likely been no results. Some better than none?
I don't believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. One primary reason is because Paul specifically *says* that he's not writing by direct inspiration from God:
So you really have no clue so you just throw out a bunch of gobbledygook? Well ok then
Try again, this time with a view to intelligibility.
Glad you could appreciate my comment. M. B. Eddy is great, but I suppose I can appreciate her better outside of the Church, since within it there is quite a bit of rigidity that she installed. The combination of Eddy?s insights with Hay?s, and the rest is simply inspiring. I haven?t encountered many people who appreciate Eddy from outside the CS Church, which suprises me. On the other hand, it suggests that a kind of Spiritual Intelligence is involved. ; )
In Uganda for instance? Two psycho American ChristoFascists, Scott Lively and Matt Barber went there and with the help of a really freaky Ugandan Pastor Martin "Poo Poo Pastor" Ssempa designed and got their government to pass the Kill the Gays bill. Lively is actually on trial in Massacheuttes for Crimes Against Humanity over it. Ssempa is actually now in prison, under a variant of that very law. He was called Poo Poo Pastor because he would go around with a laptop full of gay porn and give outrageous descriptions of gay sex acts including how gays ate the poo poo from each others butts. He was put in prison for promotion of homosexuality because of all the gay porn on his computer. Talk about Karma huh?
"Your demanding to know His reasoning is arrogant in the extreme. You have placed yourself on a level with Him." This is fu$&ing garbage.
Democracy takes real time and real effort.
Why can't religious people ever accept being wrong?
Because the God who is a creator/intervener is in all likelihood non-existent (the world seems not to an artifact of divine intelligence) and a jerk (this world is entirely too fraught with waste and suffering to believe that it is a product of a highly moral being.
So... this is the introduction of prayers to Allah in school. No thanks. You can go back to Saudi Arabia.
he's just trolling
When one considers it, though, there is no such thing as 'liberty'.
We all need to have photos we cringe at, it's a right of passage lol
Did you read the lead-in to this thread?
Industrial strength, I think you mean. The giant ones are economy- or family- sized.
Now that was genius!!!!!!
So this god of yours didn't create everything after all.
I don't have much to contribute, other than I read down through the comments and it warms my heart to see so many people extending compassion, experience, and just love to anyone suffering from these issues. I pray anyone affected feels that warmth too and knows there is hope ??
And you're comparing this to Muslim ghettos in Europe? And ISIS? Al Qaeda? Hamas? Really???
According to a website on Ellis Island, only 2% were rejected.
Not necessarily true. Where you have multiple gods, each god has it's own purpose, like making the sun rise in the morning. Not all god concepts are actually omnipotent or omniscient. Some don't care about us, they just create and left to create something else. Some are controlling, some are judgmental, others are not. Many different concepts of deities.
That's okay, but then, what is the point in making claims if you lack the honor to defend or demonstrate them?
