No, Genesis is clear: it's the breathing. That's the rabbinical standard.
You'd be surprised how much health insurance costs when you pay for it yourself (no subsidies, no employer benefits). It's not realistic to think people living paycheck to paycheck are going to pay hundreds of dollars a month for something that doesn't pay their rent or put food on the table.
Is it flimflam? No, it can be considered to be common wisdom. It goes as far back as the Roman writer Publilius Syrus (100 BC), who wrote these words: "As men, we are all equal in the presence of death."
The ancient Israelites, as the Jews today, did not major on afterlife.
I?m glad you acknowledge that evolution isn?t settled science- many atheists claim that it is.
Actually if you read the article, the teacher has an excellent track record and maintains a close bond with her kids. This one was included in that bond and he wrote his side of the story, but the school chose not to disclose it because he is a minor. Failing courses for minorities has a larger impact and they are less likely to get into college with that track record and they are also dubbed lazy for mistakes in that regard. We don?t know if this is a regular occurrence for this child (sleeping) or a one off or if he has horrible marks. Not having any respect for the classroom has little to do with someone who sleeps. I get sleepy at work everyday around noon, I?ve fallen asleep during long ass all hand meetings. It doesn?t mean I don?t respect those talking or what have you it just means my body is tired. Sleep is typically an involuntary action. If it was a male teacher, I would hope he?d have enough sense not to stand on the desk (lol even for her those desks are flimsy so I?m surprised she stayed up on it). I?d have an issue with anyone putting their foot on someone, but everything else was extremely nonviolent and non sexual. My track coach often tugged my pony tail playfully whenever I finished my laps to say good job or to get my attention and no one thought anything of it. I think you are definitely entitled to think it?s inappropriate; I understand that everyone?s boundaries are different. But I think it?s a faaaar reach to assume just because someone falls asleep they are a bad student or don?t respect the classroom. Half of people sleeping is that they?re simply tired or the presenter needs to work better at how they?re disseminating the information to ensure it is engaging. Also, failing the child should be the last resort. There about a million other things you can do to get a kid or the parents attention before it comes to that.
Just wait until people object to your plundering and pillaging. If you don't go about it smart, you'll find the "operating costs" grow pretty large.
Curious on how that works, slave dies on day two, "the rules say a day or two, so I'm just going to count the first day, so I'm good, well I lost some money in the loss of my slave, but hey, you want to sell your daughter to me?"
So you are evangelizing from a deep seated need to talk about God?
Google Flint, Mich.
My luck, I'd finally get plastic surgery and die from it like Donda West (Kanye's mom).
And Betsy will make the best decision she can, take it to God and God will not condemn her.
no one forced me to do anything. I enjoy it. Except for the fact it is a totally fruitless excercise to engage in a discussion that tries to use methods of the physical world to explain or disprove the spiritual world. It would equate to trying to use a tape measure to measure how much your spouse loves you. Denying any world beyond most peoples 5 senses doesn't make it any less real. No, I can' t explain it, measure it, or rationalize it to a point that would be acceptable. You either know it or you don't. I don't think it could be taught, it seems to be mostly an inborn thing. It seems to be heriditary though.
My argument is that those genealogies do not relate to physical ancestors, but spiritual ancestors. Are you familiar with the term used by religious groups today of "spiritual parents"? The spiritual parents "birth" a convert, that is, they teach him the message and presumably after much effort and prayer, teaching, the person is "born" as a full fledged member. That sort of thing. I met a guy once who used to brag that Billy Graham was his "great, great, great, great grandfather". Do you follow?
Do why does your god make gay people?
Cool, thanks for that bit of feedback. If/when I do another one, I may have to get with you to help with the wording on a question about whether or not someone is skeptical or a skeptic or however.
So that means government's involvement in marriage should be for enforcing those bonds and making it easier for them to maintain and keep the relationship strong in the family unit.
No one is killing a child. Ans condemns break, birth control fail. abortion is responsible action for those not wanting to have a child or suffer pregnancy
