I honestly don?t. I just know it?s something I could never do.
You mean the god whom you cannot prove exists.
Melli, I removed the "silly" comment: was there anything else? As I see it, the rest is factual: we are talking about the lives of people here, so this is a serious discussion. Thank you.
Many working people still remain poor. America has a poverty problem, much more than other developed western countries. Also look up statistics on infantile death and maternal death as well as life expectancy.
And to the previous question: So the baker WOULD have to bake a cake? Would he or would he not be compelled to bake a cake? If he refused to bake a cake, would you say he should go to jail? Would you send someone to jail for not baking you a cake?
It's double edged. If an employer is presented documents, they can get in legal trouble for questioning them. But they definitely look the other way as well.
You don't think there is any onus on the listener to communicate their needs?
some demanding folks here.
Close one, Hades. We didn't want to have to kick your ass.
So there was nothing sacrificed, and the Christian core belief is debunked.
Why do you feel so happy building stories in the never-never land that is a vacuum of evidence?
Stop with the bluster. I shouldn't have to point out that no one is claiming that either Plato or Aristotle or Euripides or Homer or Alexander the Great was actually God in human form, performed many miracles and died and then rose again and people must believe this or burn in hell. We don't have a lot of reasons to doubt the existence of these people but we have plenty of reasons to ask for evidence to back up the ludicrous and completely unsupportable claims you Christians make about Jesus. If there were really any evidence that Jesus existed we'd never hear the end of it from Christians and you would have posted it already. I've seen all the Christian websites that try to make a case that Jesus existed and they're a joke and obviously you know it too because you're afraid to humiliate yourself by posting any of those sorry arguments right here. I also shouldn't have to point out that you ignored every one of the points I made and went right on blabbing as if I raised no objections at all. I hate when you people do that. Your sneaky and unethical debating techniques are a reflection of morals gleaned from backward, superstitious animal sacrificing primitives. Again let's see that evidence. Tell me about it in your own words. Contemporary evidence. Step up to the plate. The count is 0 and 2 now. One more strike and yer out.
" I personally support conservatism and limited governmental control".......and imposed christianity, increased christian control, christian misogyny, christian homophobia, christian intolerance of other religions, christian education.......
If freedom, personal liberty to choose how you live your life are not the most important values held in society then how do you justify this ?
Wild wild west.
"Yeah, your whole point was to say look they don't respect the flag"
Haha Debra way to make me laugh.
One problem is, your immortal being with the capacity to create a universe, is obviously some sort of God character. However, you've instilled in this God character, human emotions and chacteristics, which are neither appropriate, nor fit the entity.
It was a question i asked to encourage meditation on it. I know the answer.
