Pay attention, now: I said, attractively alliterated I thought, 'the absence of acrimonious atheists and the prevalence of bellicose believers. I did not say, 'the acrimonious atheist can be both a common occurrence and a figment of the imagination'.
It may have had benefits at the start and it may still have benefits for some but it's like the training wheels on your first bike. They help you learn but eventually you move past them and no longer relying on them. If you keep them on they actually hold you back from learning how to ride without them on your own. Learning how to think should be the goal not learning what to think which is what all religions do.
I taught my son the things mothers teach them and a few more. My son is a flipping genius so my job was to remind him to be a little boy, and to be kind ,and as he got older to remember that when the passion ebbed, there would still need to be something to talk about, so don't just fall for beauty; beauty's cool but make sure she's got a brain, too. Did I teach my son to be good to his ladies? Probably not consciously but it may have filtered down in my general be kind diatribes. But I stand on my belief that sometimes only a man can teach a boy what he needs to know. Those two did. I just drove him to their house every Saturday morning.
"Lack of evidence for the existence of something is not evidence of nonexistence."
Chino isnt biased enough and you are too kind! No way!
Unless you are dealing with quantum mechanics, it cannot be both at once.
I also walk around with an ink pen. What kind of irrational fear is that? A firearm is nothing but a tool. And nope, the "loved ones" aren't usually getting hurt. Out of the gazillion of firearms owned, that's only a tiny fraction.
So, um, anyone that wakes up past 5am is a lazyass?
unless your wife told you a specific and certain way, more than once, how to get her to grant your request... she would either be wrong, or a liar. funny thing is, it would also be self imposed.
The pathetic thing, is you think Trump is the reason the ACA is crap.
Why the hell would I want your "respect"?
It doesn't matter how common any are. I think the point of this topic is to focus on how to deal with false claims when they are proven false, not how common they are
I wasn't talking about him in that case - I was talking about in general. Either way, absentee marks are for being ABSENT in class so [not to your point, but to the OP], I don't think it's fair to give them for someone sleeping if that isn't clearly defined in the school handbook. When I was in school, you got an absentee mark for 5 tardies and/or for not coming to class. Allowing teachers to issue them at their discretion seems like an opening for a wormhole. Technically, staring off into lala land means you aren't "present," doodling means you aren't "present", doing homework means you aren't present [I used to get in trouble for this until I argued my point with the teacher lol].
Oh wow, you are really upset. I'm SOOOO sorry, truly,.
it makes us different, not special
Upvote for the gangs of new york reference.
I know you are not supposed to inflame an issue but sometimes I just cannot help my self and become an agitator and getting the discussion going.
My wagon was fine before you got here and it?s fine now.
I understand what you're saying. I just find it interesting that almost all suposed transitional mammals are extinct. It's like a conspiracy to hide the evidence. I guess a question I have is why? It's not like they were vastly inferior. Even if they were inferior, is evolution really that intelligent to nearly eliminate all the undesirables in a specific species? If macro evolution is true, I would expect to see not just tons of transitional fossils, but tons of living transitional mammals as well.If they existed and were transitional then they were obviously able to survive.
