Agreed that belief in magic makes the ideas about god more plausible,
That?s your opinion
At best, regarding the religious aspects, it can only be taken figuratively. There are far too many flaws, contradictions, etc... to pretend that collection of stories is some literal truth.
Divine scapegoat Andy! Divine scapegoat!
Dyn; From my experience, once they resort to labeling (your writing = rubbish) it is useless to continue.
I think most people are smart enough to understand that every case is different. While there are extremes on all sides (MeToo has gone too far vs. kill all men now!) most people can look at a situation objectively.
How do you form opinions about subjects of which you know nothing? Surely you read news? Which news do you choose?
Which is why I say the only thing all atheists agree on is that there are no gods. I think mysticism is right up there with a belief in gods.
even the president has the right to exercise freedom of speech. many Americans had plenty to say about this issue long before Trump sent the first tweet on it.
///Your entire post is unfounded. You are making a claim that Jesus could choose where to be born - what is this claim based on?
Well, there are TWO eateries that go by this name. One in Lexington and one in historic D.C. One is high end and the other is a chit hole with some bad azz fried chicken that has been floated by locals for years. I guess that is enough.
YOU CAN IF YOU ADD ROB RIGGLE AND AWESOME MUSIC!
No Christian has lost any rights in the US. All that happened is that gays finally gained what they should have had all along which is equal rights.
Nope--I am attracted to real men just like you are, republican.
One of my best friends is a Trump supporter.
In today's society, I'm guessing there is a professor somewhere making six figures who probably actually claims they are.
From what I've read, Donnie Jr learned about hunting from his grandfather. Apparently Donnie Sr didn't spend enough time with his kids and that left Donnie Jr angry and so his grandfather introduced hunting to him.....I don't even think Donnie Sr hunts or ever has hunted. He's not exactly the country boy type.
Whenever anyone makes a blanket statement it reflects a matter of the heart. All black people are not alike, all white people are not alike and yet you seem very comfortable to say that all Democrats are alike. I am Republican and while I am benefiting from some of Trump's action it would be a lie to say I support or agree with everything he is doing. When one becomes very comfortable making blanket statements about a group or a race it reflects that they fail to recognize them as individuals and thus it is easy to vilify them as a group.
I bet you can't name more than one or two atheist historians who actually agree that Jesus actually existed. I did look into it and I found all these scholars who have said that Jesus Christ never existed:
Agreed people do have variations in what are the same set of principles and the variations maybe can be attributed to human nature, circumstance, desperation, mental state or other things. Generally I think most people are moral regardless of belief or non-belief and likely stems from their environment, culture and upbringing. Why does anyone have to explain why they think it is wrong to hurt someone or steal from someone. Isn't it enough that people think that way as a matter of course. Obviously the murderers, rapists, paedophiles, robbers and other scum walking the earth don't have these principles and they too come from both religious and non-religious backgrounds. I don't think having or not having morals is something owned by any group.
Asserting god does not require objective morality. One could believe in a deist god, that does not care about morality or has no moral rules.
????? Nuff said ?. ?.
2.) Deregulation. Destroyed labor unions. Let Wall Street and banks do whatever they wanted. Ignored monopoly laws and let corporations buy up everything.
If you hate rocks as a dumb bigot, you can pick dust, dirt, stones, mineral, void, inorganics, it does not matter..
It?s what they wrote that lost me- not their character.
Yes. Interesting, eh? :)
Well Believers should turn the other cheek. So it is the safest to "bait a believer".
If you are supposed to be modeling your life in Christ's words, deeds and actions that lifestyle is about as far away from it as one can get. To keep more than one needs to live modestly is obscene.
I meant that in response to the past administration. But I agree where it comes to women of color. Killed.. set on fire.. acid thrown on them.. etc.
one of them is of you rolling a J ...just your arms though, apparently I was aware enough to not put faces in pics pfft lol
But how we define murder, for Christians and atheists is not so clear. Yes we agree that murder is wrong, but only because it is defined as a wrongful killing, but the complexity arises from what we each consider to be a wrongful killing.
straw man. that's not what I said. however, there are some current deals we have with the EU that disproportionately benefits the EU, therefore is unfair to America (and Americans).
