Agreed that belief in magic makes the ideas about god more plausible,
Let's see. The rib seems to be healing slowly and the new job is OK. Wifeoid wants to reconcile. Headed to Mo-town for the weekend. Life seems to be going along semi smooth for a change.
That is very nice. Paul's christ is very appealing, unfortunalty Paul's Christ is not the Jesus of history
Any article that mentions Gates is suspect. He is a token black in Harvards white liberal staff. Further his is just a race baiter.
Even afflicting someone with something or punishing them or leading them is not affecting their free will or controlling them. There's no evidence from any reading of the Bible that most people are controlled. If anything, we learn they do their own thing over time.
Is that a white flag?
Were they harassing you or anyone else, or just causing a ruckus and being loud? As long as they weren't specifically trying to annoy people I think you just have to suck it up.
Typical Chicken Little response... ?The Sky is falling!!!?
1. They WERE mentioned...Repeatedly...In the Gospels
Aw... you are triggered. Sorry dupe but it seems you are full of shit.
How can a fast car be parked? It makes no sense!
I'll do it if nobody else will
AL. That was a very gracious and yet provocative presentation of your remarkable persuasive debating skills . I am a much wiser and enlightened by your insights ,inspired by your broad range of experiences , and in awe of general ?bigly? intellectual prowess and well considered yet somehow quite simple analysis..
And what in the bible?
I hope you noticed the "?" at the end of the phrase. ;)
I'm gonna stick with crab people!! lol
Im amazed by how this even works. I've never had a job which didn't entail giving my social security number for tax purposes, sometimes a background check. How the hell in this massive beauracratic, regulatory state is this even possible? The answer must be that they've just been looking the other way because it's not hard to figure out.
Most certainly not. My point is that simply separating families or prosecuting criminals is not necessarily a violation.
No I am not.
That is where I'm headed! BFE, here I come! looking for the intersection of No and Where.
We banned using CFCs in the late 80s... Fully 100% banned. It was supposed to be entirely eliminated from the atmosphere by 2010. Between 2010 and 2012 it went up by 25% since it being banned. So .... tell me what demonstrably tenable solution there is... what magic switch makes humans all care. Makes them all act for the greater good- a good beyond themselves.... because so far- when we try we fail. Perhaps you know of a magic pill the rest of us don't.
It is infuriating a bit when believers spout the same old BS over and over, even when you point out that it is pure BS and nothing less.
You think Ford will win CJ?
unfortunately no 2 christians agree on what is to be taken literally and what isn't
Not surprised, nobody is attacking you just your bad ideas.
perhaps because throughout history, the celestial bodies were worshipped. The sun being the most powerful thing in the sky, then the moon becoming a Goddess because of its 28 day cycle.
Nope, there are so many problems which these religions didn't solve at all nor they helped to eliminate it. Like for instance, did these religions helped to eliminate slavery ever..!
In a sense yes or in a sense no?
Wait...I am completely unsure if you are serious. Demonic???? It is totally impossible that you are not joking.
You know where labeling all Trump supporters as trailer trash and Deplorables got you the last time.
I?m not sure where the ?so you dont? part is coming from?
I don't think that the eating the forbidden fruit is or was the only sin.That caused us to have knowledge. And we know knowledge gives us many ways of doing wrong, One for example to satisfy our love of money,
if you like balls so much, why not just find a pair to suck on instead of hanging them on your truck.... i just don't get it...
God is prevalent in all.
During our long search we've come across a few that are just fine. An example was one that was on the market for 16k, it was a beautiful 4 bed 2 bath that was in amazingly good shape, but the little old lady who lived there passed and had no heirs. It went back to the bank, and since it was out of the way of any major city, the bank didn't give 2 craps that it could have been sold for 4 times that with minimal investment. That's part of what makes going and looking at these worthwhile.
