It is however always fun asking one kind of theist to disprove other gods. :-) If they can't by their logic then all must exists. :-)
That isn't what you said though.
The priority of the person at the entrance was to maintain an atmosphere for the visitors. It is unreasonable to think he should take a chance on spoiling that atmosphere. Yes, the TRUTH is the odds were that a white foreigner would do something - unintentionally, without malice - that would disturb the atmosphere.
No, I need to look that up.
Was this before or after he specified the size of the stick to be used to beat slaves (Exodus 21:20), how many shekels difference should be in the price of male and female slaves (Leviticus 27:4) and that all slaves are to obey their earthly masters as they would God himself (Ephesians 6:5)?
Trillions upon trillions years aren't sufficient to build even one molecule. You're deceiving yourself by these claims.
The beginning is evidence. Everything we see is evidence that something happened. Whatever conclusions you come to are on you.
It's amazing how powerful this atheism is, because there where very few atheists in the world during ww1 & ww2.
No, no. Before I even giggle at your silly assed demand that I engage in alternate history story telling, back up. Give me a citation showing that Romans refused to speak Greek or use Greek script during the 3rd century CE. Just because Plutarch stated in the 2nd c. that 'all men use Latin' doesn't mean they refused to learn any other language. Nor does it imply that xenophobia was the reason for the split. Honestly, I'm quite surprised you'd make such an obviously absurd statement, given that Rome's multiculturalism makes it very difficult to discern the extent of any given language at that time in various parts of the Empire. Greek certainly became the primary language in the Eastern Orthodox Empire. That's not the same as 'People in the West refused to speak Greek and use Greek script.' No, sweetie. You're out on a limb and you know it. Why else ask me to engage in such a fatuous exercise?
No one has a right to put their hands on you if you did not invite them to or you are not harming THEM in any way. If the student was snoring and disturbing class, then pound on the desk, use a bullhorn, something. I am not a fan of public education anymore. They are run like prisons. If you really drop all of societal dogma on public schools & think about what its like versus "its always been that way" or "i'm sure there's a good reason for it" you'll see what BS it all is. Consider that no child may leave the class without permission even to use the bathroom. Consider that even if their own body is telling them they are thirsty or hungry they cannot eat until they are allowed to eat. Consider that they are trained to raise a paw, I mean, hand to speak, move, urinate, etc. and that the teacher must acknowledge them first (and this may take several minutes)...consider they are being asked to pledge their allegiance to a piece of cloth daily, consider that they not only are controlled INSIDE the school but are given 45 minutes (at least) per subject per night which means they are going to school even at night--these kids have less rights and freedom than at any point in history. Today, if two kids fight they call the cops and give them felony assault charges and a criminal record that makes them off-limits for scholarships when 20 years ago they would have gotten detention. They are prisons, indoctrination camps, and considering colleges now have to offer Algebra they can't even educate the children who they have trapped inside of them.
Why should you expect sin to be "reasonable?" Do you expect gravity to be "reasonable?" Do you complain about how unfair it is that gravity "judged" someone for their parachute failing to deploy? Do you claim this is "not reasonable" of gravity?
I know. But it can't be picked or chosen by anyone.
