She actually threatened an investigator.
What benefit will I gain from reading them? Do they speak in riddles as you do?
And such is the fodder of great science fiction works. :)
It's possible that I've listened to more lectures by Richard Dawkins and you have, I don't know. But I can say out of his own mouth along with other top-tier atheistic lecturers they all agree there is no good or evil. Maybe you should get out more.
You need to help them yes. But that does not free them from the responsibility of suffering the consequences for their actions.
I was Born again. From Him.
Whoa! As much as 10-20 years off?
Well, at least so far no one seems to have come up with one that is seen by the majority of people as a good replacement for religion. I'm all for it though. I am an atheist, but I can understand why lots of people cling to god and traditional religions.
Your latest kweer lover?
"Scientific understanding" is just systematic understanding of the physical reality around us. A religious text doesn't
Should look at it rationally...in the situation you describe, it's understandable that he didn't call.
Alright, I?ll give you a second shot at this. What does porphyria (a blood disease) have to do with vampires?
You yourself just said it has. Your standard is subjective to fit your needs. You would agree Plato, Aristotle, Herodotus, Pliny the Elder, and others are all viable and valuable.

Nothing about tonight has surprised me in the least.
No objective value, correct. Plenty of subjective value. Same as plenty have no use for secular humanistic values.

What you believe or think, I do not care. Priests were demanded by their Law, to offer kidneys, liver to the sin offering.
And people not active participants in the fleecing and disinformation campaign.
Nope. I can say whatever I damn well please. Welcome to the open forums, bud.
Except the people most offended by the gesture seem to completely ignore what the people making the gesture repeatedly say it?s supposed to signify to give it a different meaning so they don?t have to address the issue that the players are actually trying to call attention to.
Up the hill, and right back down...
You've been both disingenuous and dishonest about "God" and "His son" when asked about what you meant HERE, JUST NOW. But continue.
Oh Panch, you slay me. :3
She has to hit rock bottom and realize she's been brainwashed. If you think you are doing something good for her by encouraging her to leave the church you may end up being the bad guy/gal. She's in a cult. Any church that exhibits that much control is a cult.
"some grow up believing in a god"
No evidence for the latter but quite a bit of evidence for my position.
In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Obama the worst president since World War II, and 28% put Bush at the bottom of post-war presidents.
Poor scared, little Smiley, afraid of a baseball cap.
Yes, it was the judge along with the prosecution. Don't tell me you're naive not to think they are usually on the same side??
The "Mea Culpa" political strategy has worked before in other places, so why not try it now. They do have a good team working the election. I just hope they got their money (paid) before the results come in.
Deworming from parasites is always stupid - from parasites' perspective.
