When Matt Shurka accused the late Dr. Joe Nicolosi of "abusive" therapy, Nicolosi's son, Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr. encouraged him to subpoena his father's records. Do you really think Nicolosi Jr. would do that if the wasn't confident that Shurka's testimony was false?
Climate change is a hoax.
You need a logic implant. Gods are imaginary by default.
Please read (John 3:1-21).
Not true. Science answers the question of "where did the universe come from" with a solid "I don't know". but that in no way means that "godidit"!
Oh, damn! I cannot believe that I missed it! What did he say?
You got gluttony. But yeah. I didn't get those.
An example of a scientific claim that *might* not be falsifiable is the "multiverse theory" (which is actually a hobbled-together assertion based on predictions of string theory and inflation, respectively).
The absence of evidence....
Excuse me, thank you for the correction.
I'm holding up a single finger, guess which one it is. Hint: It's your mother's favorite one
I often wonder, taking a verse from the bible, how Christians who seek to persecute others, would like to have done unto them as they want to do unto others?
Why do the metaphorical meanings of numbers matter?
Hahahahaha!! Funny! Sad. But funny!!
Making Americans Grovel Again?
"Are the anti-theists holding science back yet again, because they don't want to "let God back in"?"
As much as I appreciate your intellectual and philosophical approach to questioning the commentators, I am perhaps too much of a reductionist to answer in a way you'd accept.
Talking points are enough Sling Blade, Fox News and conservative radio, you?re not the only person listening Sling Blade, you?re just the percentage stupid enough to believe it. ;)
Can?t blame me for trying!
I don't like to appeal to authority on issues. I just don't like Einstein being misquoted. I came to the same conclusion as Einstein when I was a child. Well before I knew who Einstein was or his thoughts on this matter.
My favorite historical film.
This is a conversation about mass shootings in US, and my comment was in response to a claim that the majority of mass shooters in the US are white, as if that means something. So what's misleading about pointing out that the majority of males in the US are white
In a seasonable system there is a rapid, low cost and simple migrant workers program. That would allow people who want to migrate for seasonal work to come here and work legally.
Did those statues skeer you?
I think the joke version is God shrugged and said, ?Oh well, it was only a six day job.?
"Not everyone is educated or smart." This is obvious. However, you need to get job skills. That means starting with fast food, retail or some other basic job, then getting a better job, then a better one. Hopefully either learning marketable skills or going to school for some marketable skill rather than planning on public assistance as a career. We spend over a trillion dollars per year keeping our poor, poorer and more dependent than the generation before them.
Yeah, I don't think anybody writes an OP about something they don't think exists, either. And then you say "i was christian for 35 years", (whatever that actually means!). So why don't you just cut the crap? Try being real for while, see if you get anywhere that way. If you're having problems understanding why a loving God allows suffering, just say so. You'll find a lot of other people dealing with such questions, but without the atheism shtick.
There is a scholarly consensus on what is more probable to be authentic. Of course the higher probability only indicates that certain parts of the Gospels can be traced back to an earlier Jewish tradition and not the actual historical Jesus. The criteria for authenticity has found that about 18 % of probable authentic material in the Gospels.
I would never say that black women do not have it bad in the US. But black males have been racially profiled by police in ways that no other "group" has been. NYC's Stop and Frisk targeted black males almost exclusively. Our prisons are filled with nonviolent drug offenders (primarily black). What does that tell young black men?
Jewish? Firmly separate from church and state in the states?
And mine is that we are not created in His image. He is made in ours!
I have to put a towel down on my home office chair, if I dare try to sit down with my black dress pants on. Short hair domestics can be quite furry.
I liked colored lights as a kid, though, but white is classic. I like some decorated with no lights, too. It's just preference. I think stores sell white and pink trees to make them pop. And people should buy what they like. As long as my presents are wrapped with sparkly bows!
