Lactose isn't a person (those).
The Arabs are clearly jealous of the Jews and with good reason. They can see the disproportionate contribution the Jews have made to human advancement as opposed to their own contributions which is almost nothing. And the Arabs can see what a civilized and prosperous society the Jews have built in their midst as opposed to their racist, misogynistic and deeply ignorant society with its childish honor-shame culture which has no honor and of which they ought to be ashamed. Also the Jews have soundly defeated the Arabs several times when attacked unprovoked. It's obvious that everything the Jews do they do better than the Arabs. No wonder the Arabs are jealous. It must infuriate them because the very people their supposedly infallible holy book depicts as inferior, as apes and pigs have turned out to be clearly superior.
Let's assume yes.
Welp that's was an awesome non sequitur.
We can see that a car doesn't exist, because the fraudster didn't produce the car. We can see that god doesn't exist, because for some reason, no one can produce it either.
You are literally made out of Universe, you are not "in" the Universe, you "are" Universe. Indeed, you are made out of the exact same undifferentiated material of the singularity of the immediate post big bang moment, same as everything else in existence.
I don't really think Hovind's case is relevant to the discussion questions you pose. Hovind clearly wasn't engaging in a religious ministry for religious reasons - he was using it as a tax dodge, and he got caught.
I do believe Jesus existed. My question would be, what would be the impact if we discovered today that he did not exist?
do you work the sabbath?
No comparison at all. Weinstein used his power as leverage to have sex with women and Clinton did not force Monica into anything. She was a willing subject.
Heh. Wild eyed Canadian Conservatives would be considered on the left side of the Democrat party.
Funny how can't point out any of these out, much less elaborate on them, much less prove the existence of this god of yours and your conversance with the will, nature and acts of this god of yours. All claims and no substance. Good riddance to you, Mr. Fraud.
You are right. I do treat those as the same thing.
The religious have been handing their balls to someone else since the beginning.
I don't know about trendy or sexy, but I pretty much only ever wear flats or knee-high boots. Forget those heels tearing up my feet and hurting my ankles.
I most certainly will take a look, pretty lady. Thank you
From you, the person being protested? That?ll play well
lol. I really love reading your posts--extremely humorous.
Do you think that forcing people to disrobe in order to interact with Westerners is a clear introduction to western culture.
As always when it comes to claims about ancient history I think of Hume. "A Wise man proportions his belief to the evidence." Is there strong or weak evidence for the claim? Does the evidence actually address the claim or is it circumstantial?
Yet most historians who dealt with the demographic question agree that Christianity, though certainly large and well-organized, was still a minority of the Roman population when Constantine came along. That makes his rule pretty determinative for the fate of the nascent religion. Of course, it can also be argued that Diocletian's persecutions set a rolling ball in motion that couldn't be stopped, and Constantine was only rolling with that ball.
