How are you going to ban Mohels? You think the Jews are going to hand in fellow jews performing religious rituals in the privacy of homes? Happily let the government send them off to a government facility for a few years because they were perpetuating judaism?
Privately owned by churches and NGOs, but state funded.
You've only just met Andrew I see.
Not sure what you mean by 'if the Bible says there were unicorns'. . .it does. I don't think they are or were ever real any more than your God is or was, but I could certainly be wrong on either count. No harm done, either way.
Will it be a "win" when women are forced to carry their rapist's baby?
HUgs for the ummmm masochist act?
Oh I know the difference between clean and unclean, however I also know the difference between 2 and 14.
I don't believe you. Do some research and post links.
"As Christianity being the single most influential force in Western Development... let?s not get carried away. It was more or less British Colonialism that powered that machine."
You say that as if you think you are the first one to say that to me. There is no God, I was a believer for over 10 years, and I can say for certain there is none.
What is lame is this, you are trying to project yourself onto me and it isn't working because my head only has enough room to make decisions for myself.
I've been violently raped. I have no idea what you mean. Rape culture is a meaningless term to me. Most men haven't raped me, haven't wanted to. One man did with a knife. I blame him. Some doofus in an elevator saying to let him off on the lingerie floor is a nothingburger. I'd say "Sure" then kick his butt out on that floor.
revolt time coming
Your rationale for not answering my simple questions is cowardly.
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
I don't think it is arrogant at all in reponse to namecalling. Or did the "snowflake" part evade you simply because it fits your narrative?
Look, when I'm in a crowded elevator during a convention with a beer or two in me and an unlimited supply of burritos, there should be an "equality of fear".
That certainly makes sense. Other excellent scholars include EP Sanders, Paula Fredriksen, Dale Allison, Dale Martin and Larry Hurtado - all very qualified and respected historians. It's always worth it to see what a variety of scholars think on various issues. Some things they definitely disagree on, but there's quite a bit they do agree on.
No need to feel sorry for being an idiot. You have a right to be one!
ok That, too.
I think you just told me all I need to know about your personal integrity. Thanks.
Dad used them occasionally. Of course he was 81 and had a heart condition, so I think we can give him a pass.
The Nabateans spoke Arabic but used Aramaic for writing. Later they developed their own system of writing (Nabatean script) which became the foundation of the Arabic script of Koran The significance of Koran was that it manifested the emergence of Arabic as a language of literature. In this way, Islam was nothing but a cultural revolution: the great Aramaic civilisation was substituted by the Arabic one. It was a form of cultural imperialism, and still is. Koran has no new theological content, just a linguistic exercise.
I didn't do it. He showed us on our peep show group chat.
LOL, Chuck Missler would be banned on some Disqus channels no doubt. Thank you for posting the video on the Carmelite nun. I could not respond to you because, as you know by now, I was banned at CAC yesterday because I dared to confront that mindless and dimwitted 7.Genie, who still sees not one iota of harm she has done in promoting Catholic mysticism. What I really did was take off the masks and expose the hearts of the the pseudo "christians" at their satanic watering hole. ERC can no longer hide the condition of his heart. Many of us have known for far too long that he mouths the Christian lingo but he is far away from God. He hates any Christian who dares to expose his wallowing in false teaching. I am sure it did not escape you the love fest, patting on the back, and the congratulating of themselves that they got rid of Emmabelle. My voice will not be silenced, however. Hope all is well with you and family.
Expect to get some flak for "religious atheist." People consider such a stance as "mutually exclusive/non-sequitur" It's because they are locked into a certain way of thinking (about religion). As a pantheist, I certainly understand where you're coming from.
Oh really? The we in this equation is myself and millions of others like me who will NOT allow these disgusting ChristoFascists to start their crap and if YOU do not like what I am saying? Here is a suggestion, block me. Because Johanon....I will NEVER stop standing up to or speaking out against psychotic ChristoFascists who think it is their freaking right to brutally murder their fellow human being off of cherry picked buybull verses.
I simply can't process the level of sheer ignorance displayed by those on this particular thread - e.g., parroting these outrageous pop-culture statements, grounded in postmodern deconstructionism's unique brand of "revisionist history" - especially by those who've been "imbibing heavily at the wells of naturalism" for far-too-long now. (You know: having tragically guzzled the proverbial naturalistic kool-aid in excess!)
I am convinced this ex who allegedly looooved anal doesn't actually exist. Or it's like, the same woman who has dated almost half the men out there. And they don't realize they are all talking about the world's only woman to orgasm from anal (due to some mutation).
