In a sense, sure. I'd say the hard-wired moral instinct came from our evolution as a social species.
I proudly admit that in my impetuous youth I was exceedingly hedonistic. I think that is the best time to run wild, to make and learn from our mistakes as we are capable of correcting our common foibles and can survive the major screwups.
How so? You disagree with me and you resort to troll. That is the hallmark of someone losing the argument. I have been nothing but respectful and cordial to you in all responses. I am not inciting disagreement for disagreement sake. My views are not extreme and very much in line with fundamental Christian doctrine.
Let me be clear. Your only source for information about Jesus is the Bible in particular the stories in the gospels. The existence of these stories is not evidence that they are true or that Jesus existed. What you don't have are any actual witnesses to the resurrection or anything Jesus supposedly did or said. Your witnesses are all part of the SAME STORY, they didn't exist either. So this dumb argument about disciples being witnesses is like trying to prove the existence of Superman by citing the testimonies of Lois Lane, Perry White and Jimmy Olsen. So don't even start with that because that's your next move. I've won this argument hundreds of time. I hope I have shed some light on just how immense your problem really is.
Meaning that mastering mathematical proofs isn't a sufficient skillset to avoid being "easily manipulated by the irresponsible politicians".
should have bought a ring LOL
I had my DNA done--Mostly Ashkenazi Jewish, which is a mix of Middle Eastern and European. I consider the Bible to be mostly mythology.
HR, for the record, I didn't make that statement because of you. I am not totally sure I completely understand the point you made but it's interesting nonetheless.
Yes, skip the one with the rivers of lava, currently!
Well said. Thank you.
And Paul is interesting in this regard because he is careful to distinguish between his own opinion on certain issues, and what he considers divine revelation that he has been entrusted with.
Did I tell you to stop speaking your mind? I think you should start to speak your mind. It woukd be good to hear how you actually think, and it will help you work through your issues.
I'm considering it as an option when my kid hits highschool...
There is no need to " shatter families and destroy a small minority". Just revoke the privilege (genital mutilation is already a crime) and let the courts do the rest. Jewish boys who are not happy with their circumcision can then sue their parents and the Mohel. A Mohel who botches the practice will be responsible and can't hide behind the "tradition".
God would know who's gay.
yeah, like that
I pretty much agree with you on those points.
The chance is miniscule, but again, it only needs to happen once.
You keep saying there's a flaw but there isn't one.
You seem to embrace the internet as a bastion of truth.
Let's focus on KJU and his democratic republican followers.
Nah. God made 'em all less than 30K years ago.
Here is something I put together a while back, I think it will answer your questions.
