Surely this comes in retailatinnfor the repeated Israeli assaults on Syrian territory?
otherwise it would just be a crime.
Yikes, sounds like her priorities are a little out of whack if she wants you to lose your job because of a vacation
They won't though. Your god holds no authority over them.
I can name a few, if you're a priest :)
The D.C. Metrorail and MARC trains are clean, but the Metrobuses are filthy.
What I am pointing out is that it is possible that the same sort of logic will be applied one day to children and adults who do not add to society, who don't have all the functioning systems that it takes to sustain life. Is that a leap from a first trimester baby? Yes. But not an unlikely leap.
That is an argument for another time, however at the time if they say this is their proof and I disprove it. Then I have basically disproved God according to their own proof.
Hopefully nothing special. ??
My reference to man is to both man and woman. "Whosoever will" Come, come and drink of the water of life freely.
1. Besides the fact that most educated Romans understood by the 2nd century, as many Westerners do today, that the core myths of their religion were fables that were doing nothing to advance the progress of civilization, Roman religion and the values to which it gave rise had become pretty corrupt by the end of the 3rd century. Slavery, strict patriarchy, emperor-worship, animal sacrifice (occasionally on a massive scale), gladiator duels to the death, augury, infanticide - I don't view any of these things with moral indifference.
I am doing no hand-waving. I am simply responding to your analogies and pointing out their problems.
It's gonna be a great game with Golden State taking the crown tonight!
1. A sacrifice is when you give something up. Jesus was resurrected and as of today sits with God for nearly 2000 years. This seems to be a kidnapping. What did God sacrifice?
Having a thing for you doesn't mean he would be inappropriate per se. Plenty of guys are capable of being attracted to a woman without acting on it.
Keep your religious paws off my vagina. You can spout what you want, but your religion doesn't and shouldn't infringe on my consent to have something feed off my nutrients and inhabit my body. It's my body, and I don't want you to take away my consent of it.
Physical laws exist, we observe them, this I understand.
Are you oblivious to the hypocrisy in that statement? I was pointing out the fact that YOU resorted to the "it costs taxpayers money" argument, or what we could call the Appeal to the Pocketbook, when all other arguments fail.
I'm just reading and wondering what all the dogs would do if I walked by with my cat on his leash??
Yes. Really. Saying a religion promotes hate and the god is sadistic is not inciting violence against Christians.
I think they actually make new accounts as the blocks stack up.
As you don't know ANYTHING about it, you cannot claim it as a benefit of religion. That makes you a loser.
Sunday school lesson.
No. Of course not. We should help them. Should we help them over and over again, every single hurricane season?
Thank you Peter. But wow; what you wrote here is pretty deep. And then the reference you cited by Jacques Vallee is spot on, even though I hadn't heard of him.
Can I borrow one of those? They seem really handy.
"Yes the left loves to call a decrease in the rate of increase a cut back even though the numbers increase. Pure political theatre with little intellectual weight."
You're arguing an irrelevant god?
