FC. Children do not have well developed minds as their brain is not developed enough to critically reason or exercise good judgement. The children can generally ?believe? what they are told by presumptive authorities. Children are easily manipulated by their emotional needs, dependencies and do they often pretend to be what they are not. Belief is not really a attribute of practical or mature judgement but more a matter of acceptance, submission and compliance, which I again see as more of the realm of passionate emotions than seeking the dispassionate facts of knowledge.
they certainly had their problems, and Oh Yeah nailed it when they touched on the increasing feudalism of the empire. it was a constant theme of Byzantium's slow decline and accelerated the fragmentation of the empire. but Byzantium's history has 1000 years of decline and resurgence and the moral narratives about a descent into decadence is almost always lazy history and probably some chauvinism about the decadent East that had been a part of western-Roman culture since the republican era.
I'm against fascistic tactics of a police state. No knock raids have become common place where they should be rare. This is why SWATTING has become so dangerous. BLM is a racist supremacist group that actively supports criminals that actively attack police officers.

its a cruel attitude. but at least its more honest than the people who pretend that hes a moral pillar, as long as he cuts out birth control,and all abortion funding.
Indeed, why do Hindis believe in Brhama (sp)? Why do 'pagans' believe in a goddess? And why do Christian scientists believe all matter is an illusion? Can any of us prove or disprove any of these? No, will we change anyone's mind? No. All we will do is issue our opinions ad nauseum.
Well that's cherry-picking don't you think? Comparing Trump's quarterly GDP to Obama's annual? We had many quarters over 3% during Obama's terms.
So, you think that love (and/or harmony among people) is possible only when one postulates a supreme creator?
Wow. Again, you just cannot understand the point now can you. Let me see if I can clarify it for you in easy terms ok?
Fvck them too.
It raises two questions for me.
Any relation to Melissa?
I have two trains of thought about this...on the one hand, the gall of asking her friend not to talk about her pregnancy. My wife and I miscarried and it is intensely painful, and I can't imagine not having any room to (at least pretend to) be happy for my friends.
