So, you admit that all religion is harmful... that's a good start.
You can point out such people with any ideology or belief system. It does not mean the belief system is invalid, of course.
....I am vaguely remembering something but I can't find an image!
I'm not an atheist, and I have done all that you suggest my entire life. As a result I've arrived at what I believe to be a genuine understanding of god and what god has tasked his creation with. I'm just not confusing this understanding with
The path you started down and I followed.
Pasta is a rare treat so I have to have both, just not often.
Good morning all you credit hunting and using stinkers and Stinkerettes! It is a beautiful cloudy day and the sunshine will happen eventually. I just know it. the coffee is on and the library will open at noon. overdue books are $0.05 a day.
Donny J isn't doing his job. He was supposed to deport 182.
Ella, Yup, the clergy kept knowledge in the sanctuaries of the faithful and dispensed snippets to curry some favor from the temporal nobility, rich and powerful.
If anyone needs to reference the first discussion the OP wrote about this issue, it has some more backstory:
Yes sure! :) Thanks for asking. I believe the book of revelation is a past event. It was the time of Jacob?s trouble. Jeremiah 30.7 it was the fulfillment of Matthew Cpt24. The book of Revelation document the transition from the mosaic Covenant Age to the New covenant Age of YESHUA. God?s wrath on those Jews who rejected their messiah and kill His Prophets and Apostles. Luke 11:37-50 This was not an event for the planet. It was strictly for the Jewish nation. Blessings to you.
Or better yet, "Do unto others."
I?m with you but at the same time I?d like to think I?d be just mean enough, or brave enough to hold out till the end. To rage against the pain and indignity of it. To stick it out to the last no matter what. Then sigh and be on my way. But that?s a lot to ask sometimes.
I do respect Avenatti for moving on these corrupt lawyers like the bytches they are
It isn't a source.
Do I get how that is related to Pinky and the Brain? Nope, sorry, still don't see it.
To my way of thinking, I see the Bible as a collection of metaphorical stories made up of wishful thinking, nightmares promoted to reality, and/or someone smoking what the drug of choice was back then (opium?).
Okay what is the bigger picture in your opinion?
A story can be true. And yes, its evidence because none of the family members are disputing it.
Thank you, and no problem. I was really getting tired of the "what ifs". There is no what ifs. PP has to report where every single dollar goes and Congress made the law very clear. PP does NOT and has NOT ever used tax payer money for abortions to low income women. Period. End of story. The facts are there, if someone chooses to ignore it, that is on them. But they will not continue spreading that falsehood here.
No one argues for strict gradualism any more, I don't think. As Gould showed rate of evolution is variable. However, natural selection is still a major engine of evolution.
The answer to point 4 is that they could have accepted Jesus as the Messiah and the new Jerusalem would have come. Instead they killed God and the temple was destroyed.
Looks like it might get even tougher, which is a good thing.
Wow, he really did reject his own statement...
We know that everything that exists in the physical realm is contingent on other things in order to exist. For example, water cannot exist without hydrogen and oxygen first existing. Humans cannot exist without edible, nourishing substances first existing, etc. This means the universe itself is contingent (i.e. it doesn't have to exist.). And if it doesn't have to exist, then there must be something else that cannot fail to exist in order for the universe to exist.
Vulnerability. Unease. Intimidation. The fact that rape numbers are 50 times higher for women by men than men by women (or men).
But that is the whole point of no contraception. God commanded to go forth and multiply. Contraception holds back that multiplying part. The thing is that god never said what to multiply by.
Fine. Please explain why? I know there are near infinite possible scenarios but I went with IMVHO the most likely.
interesting. Thank you. Okay, so...God tries to kill Moses, but his wife saves him with his son?s foreskin. This literally happened. Fascinating.
Can you lonk me to that definition?
Really. It's considered inflammatory.
If ya wanna go there, then I think gay surgeons should be able to refuse to save bigoted cake decorators.
My, you do like to be redundant. Disingenuous and dishonest. Why not throw in unethical just for good measure? But hey, that is why you are the smart one here...
