At least for the 200,000 years though, where is gradualism seen? It's not.
I know very well of the distinction, but this has little to do with what we were discussing. You made a claim about the nature of reality with no way to prove it, you just assert it as truth. I showed you how that is in error since anyone can follow the same model of making claims of absolute knowledge of something. The Aristotelian distinction makes the same error of assuming that god is that "necessary" existent thing/being, with no point of reference other than assertion. I go back to old Hitchens who stated, "I can grant you all the miracles and you'd still be left with an empty cup", because even if we assume the "necessary thing/being" is some sort of god, you'd be in no way able to say that therefore, it is the christian one....or any other specific god for that matter. Still, there is no reason to assume a god/being to begin with without committing a logical fallacy. You are stuck in an endless loop of logical fallacies and circular reasoning and the worst part about it is, you are unwilling to engage in honest discussion about it or be humble about your level of knowledge. You want to say, "This is what I believe, but can't prove it", I'm ok with that statement, even though we still won't agree on the nature of reality. But you don't say this, you say, "I know this to be true"....don't provide any evidence though, just assert it, then sidestep any logical points or questions. It's the height of arrogance and ignorance. I'm done now.
Fine whatever. Don't care anyway. I like the history of Jerusalem and the history of Jewish people and others that occupied it for thousands of years but I don't give a rats butt about Palestinians because they don't represent Palestine, they represent themselves which is not Palestinian but Arab people coming from Arab countries.
50 cents? How was your trip in the 80s?
Now you need to step away before you get blocked.
Sunday school lesson.
I am sure plenty of religious people say pornography is wrong ... but then watch it anyway. It's probably the same ones that say Trump is a 'real' Christian.
I love those kinds of towns
Can it be
At the core of it is insecurity coupled with the need for competition and a need to reinforce to themselves that the decisions they are making are the 'best ones'.
Yeah, numerous references in the bible to ?judge not lest ye be judged,? and Jesus?s ?let he who has not sinned cast the first stone,? etc.
In the heart! Contentment is of the heart. Get that right first...
Nope. They dont.
