Show some class and admit that you are fine with lying so long as it advances your position.
The two are not mutually exclusive.
Exactly! Bunch of disappointing boyscouts: the lot of you!
Hell yes to skepticism!
Well apparently you should plan on arriving 2-1/2 hours early on meeting days like if you were going to airport for international flight \S.
Its reverence not torment, big difference.
I don't know if I can think of any morals that are ideal or totally objective. I've always thought pedophelia may be one but I have been reminded many cultures do not think pedophelia is wrong.
Yes, but in Texas, when you reach retirement age (usually 65), none of your taxes can be raised after that ... and the discounts on the fees charged? ... and the military discount? and the inexpensive health care in the the University Health System Complex (CareLink)? ... and now "net metering" for your electric bill ...e.g., automobile inspection in San Antoine costs us $14. In PA, it costs us $62.
The problem is that you are a lying creationist.
Perhaps the rest of us are unfamiliar with the ?distasteful pop culture? usage of the term ?Texas Sharpshooter.? I certainly am.
"?Till death do us part? isn?t meant to enforce love, it?s meant to enforce commitment"
Why should they trump personal convictions?
Can one of the christianist cultists explain to me why its good christianist behaviour to deny dying people a drink of water as is being done by the white Christianist trump administration?
That's what's up.
With my kids, I told them that Santa was make believe and like all make believe games, we could enjoy the idea if we all played the make-believe game together.
If that stuff is not a matter, then how it has a mass. Have you studied physics in the high school? I guess you were sleeping in the lessons.
Yep. I thought I was something. Long blonde hair all pulled back with my colorful clips. : )
I think as a teen, you should be sort of given a free pass to try out as many funky hairstyles and crazy trends as you want.
You?re conflating a fashion choice ? and it is a choice ? with other activities. If I wear a t-shirt with the stars and bars, I may symbolize something horrible, but I?m doing anything other than wearing a stupid t-shirt.
Creationists are not even quoted in the OP. Atheists are leading the charge for extended synthesis and even replacement of modern evolutionary theory. The old guard of evolutionists blindly deny it's needed and are poorly out of date on their education.
And that is just the end the cycle of reincarnations! Imagine the time needed to move up through the animal kingdom. Of course, in Jaina cosmology, the cosmos is beginningless and eternal, so time isn't lacking. Pretty much all of the eastern traditions share the Biblical view that lifespans used to be much longer, though since they view time as cyclical rather than linear, all eastern traditions I know of posit a FAR older cosmos than modern cosmology. I think the Vedas puts it in the hundreds of trillions of years. I suppose the new breed of Hindu "fundamentalists" gaining prominence in India must be big fans of the Big Crunch hypothesis.
Nice opinion. try again.
I'm on the wrong side of 25 now but IRL people still accuse me of being like 16 and attempt to throw me out of the bars. Can't win here.
What about my post leads you to believe that I suggested 'compassion is felt only by Christians?'
I think that all of us who struggle with anxiety are very similar in that regard.
Reminds of that question, "Why do they call him a thief?"
I think you and your friends are a rarity, tbh.
An answer avoiding rational discussion like yours has demonstrated its base in a bias, ideological and otherwise. It?s also a form of rote contradiction.
Proven? What parts?
It's just so hard for a fundie to be better than his religion.
Just referencing how the same people who will call the poor a bunch of lazy ?layabouts? will promote the idea that the government should spend 400 billion dollars bombing some helpless third world country, and not see the hypocrisy. How could most Christians be fine with us spending so much money on death and destruction yet appalled when we spend money to help children eat and see a doctor?
If we still exist as a culture and species, we will almost certainly have determined everything which can be determined about the universe by 2060-2080, and will have working models of the rest. That is largely because by then, even in the absence of the wild acceleration we have seen in Moores law, expected to be further boosted by early spirothetes equivalent to a sinle smart hum,an by the 2030s, we will have had single spirothetes as mentally competent as the entire human population of earth (assuming that everyone had studied hard and earned a PhD) for long enough to have finished such research projects by then.
The Christian ideal that marriage is designed for a man and a woman, not a man and man or woman and woman is what I'm referencing.
