Nah, it's no big deal.??
I don't need to have a coffee or beer with someone to know if they're an asshole or a moron - that's usually plain to see for all :)
I did admit it. I know what I know and what I don't know, and I try very hard not to pretend to know things which I don't. Sometimes I state things more emphatically than I should (I'll make the same mistake tomorrow or even later today, so don't think I'm reformed or anything.) Sometimes it's for effect.
Obama's biggest error in his healthcare rollout plan was attempting to appease all parties. Indeed, the outcome was substandard because of compromises such as eliminating single payer. Again, this all happened well before passage.
Ah, yeah. Let me rephrase. You don't have the right to break the law. If you come as an illegal, you are subject to the law of the U.S. but you are guaranteed equal protection under the constitution if you are under the jurisdiction of the states. Which means due process. You are still breaking the law.
You basically just dodged my whole previous post. And what you did post I've already talked about. I don't think you really care about this issue the way you claim. Frankly, I think you're the one blinded by ideology.
Yeah, I took your word for it already. But you quoted something that shows it's argued as a cultural practice, and not using the same reasons as male circumcision.
These kind of turkeys?? Good Morning DB!!
It's funny you're asking like you don't already know the answer.
Maybe this will help a bit: You can also win Monopoly without owning Boardwalk.
I know. I've explained why it's the same in your head. Again, what part of government is being controlled by religion? Not a single abortion law is contrary to secular medical opinion on the beginning of life, so that's not it. So what?
Ah, so now you need other people to believe it?
Let's look at some historical examples of a society under extreme stress, shall we? Almost inevitably, the result would be a dictatorship of some kind. WW2, for instance: On one side, you have a set of authoritarian dictators (Germany, Italy, USSR, Japan), on the other - wartime US and Great Britain had both radically expanded the authority of executive branch to what would be unthinkable during the peaceful times.
But why do you stop caring after they are born?
No... it's not. Largest Province in Canada funds religious schools. Three main churches exist with parliamentary foundations (Anglican, United, Catholic). Second largest province has a large Christian symbol over its legislature. The Queen is DG Regina, defender of the faith.
Lowest unemployment in decades.
Tell that to my cousin. She was working on #3 with BF#...I can't remember...last I saw her.
Special and not special make no sense in the context of infinite interdependent complementarity.
Any evidence for your claim?
Invisible things? Like what music? Thoughts? These things have measure. So far- god has none. You asserting differently isn't evidence.
Do you have any evidence that conscientiousness arouse from an evolutionary process? The answer to that is no since we are having this conversation. So the best natural theory is that conscientiousness arose through evolutionary process the problem is there is not enough time in the universe for this to take place. So to make the point you will say well we must have had enough time because we are here. This is a false conclusion but the only conclusion you can draw since your world view does not allow you to fathom anything outside of what we can observe and test. This then leads back to the my original statement we can't test or observe God Hate Faith. Since you cannot be observed in your own mind and you cannot be separated from you mind and observed outside of your body. So in essence there is no way to naturally prove you are you and you exist.
Are the dogs a man and a woman?
If Paul needed a personal visit from Jesus to know that Jesus was resurrected, then why wouldn't you? We are told by the Bible that Jesus appeared to hundreds of people. We know that it is OK for Jesus to appear to people -- it does not take away their free will, for example -- because it was OK for Jesus to appear to hundreds of other people. We know that it would be easy for Jesus to appear to everyone all through history, since Jesus is all-powerful and timeless. We know that, if Jesus did reappear to everyone, it would be incredibly helpful. We could all know, personally, that Jesus is resurrected and that Jesus is God. If Paul (and all the other people in the Bible) needed a personal visit to know that Jesus was resurrected, then why not you and me? Yet, we all know that Jesus has not appeared to anyone in 2,000 years. The reason why Jesus has appeared to no one for 2,000 years is because Jesus never appeared to anyone. In other words, there is nothing stopping Jesus from appearing to you, and several good reasons for him to appear.
So... the models underestimated the damage we have done to the ozone layer? And what conclusion should we draw form that?
so it is a way to show your disgust at my comment? oh I see, an ad hominem attack
From separation from God. He accepts you and your faults with the sacrifice of his holy son.
lol! Were you under the impression that I said that evolutionists don't accept evolution?
First paragraph: Well... yeah... I've got the book, I've got reason, I've got tradition. Those are the tools that are available to me to interpret God's meaning. I'm not sure what's so audacious about that: most Christians support that as what's needed to participate in debate on the intent/nature of God.
