Its impossible for you to determine the truth or falsehood of someones existence based on "style of literature".
No, he is right, they do not count a miscarriage (which was the word used) as a death. The same book makes it clear an infant under 3 months is not counted.
Have at it! :)
That's why Islam apologists ardently defend it in every OP about Islam, obviously.
One thing that is important to remember is the purpose for which the Epistles were written. They were letters to the new and growing churches containing teachings on how to live/love/etc., not documents created to verify Jesus' existence. The Epistles were written for people who already had accepted Jesus as Messiah, and so it would have been unnecessary and redundant to try to convince the Christians that Jesus is God, see? There were other documents with a focus on Jesus as you so desired, and they are called the Gospels.
that they do; all the same, they view tariffs as taxes.
That was one of the most well-stated father's rights arguments I've ever seen, and that's including my own!
Neither are religions Dave.
Thank you for your thoughts, Lois. As I stated in the OP, my parents raised us to be colour blind. My first exposure to racism was in the mid '80s while I lived in Texas for a year. I was flabbergast to find out that black and mexican people where paid approximately 25% less than whites for the same work! I couldnt believe it! I actually asked a coworker who was mexican and she laughed at me! I was embarrassed to have been so naive. I began to notice how they pooled together in the cafetria at lunch time and remembered how awkward than same coworker had been when I asked her to sit with us at lunch a few weeks previously. I was about 25 at that time and had grown up in a predominantly white small town in Massachusetts where my best friend was a Puerto Rican. I had never been popular at school and gravitated towards Juanita and another white girl who was overweight and walked with a limp. I saw discrimination, but never racism. I was teased because I was taller than everyone in my class by about 4 inches. I was called "giraffe" by all the boys. They didnt catch up til grade 8! Anyway, thank you for your thoughts, Lois. ???????
My wife's a Doctor. She says it's a baby at conception.
And just how did you ascertain it was a demon?
Yes, I've listened to many of his podcasts. I'm a very big fan of Jung, Dostoyevski, Solzenhitsyn and Eliade. All guys he cites all the time, so I had to listen to him - our thinking has, in many ways, been forged by many of the same sources. I use the same approach to mythology and religion as he does, and enjoy hearing his views. I hadn't heard him talk of an afterlife though. That's why I was surprised to see him mentioned and am asking...
I don't disagree with what Ron said here.
Oh - one other thing.
I did want it answered in the context of the article. Don't read anything on it's own. That's why I wrote please read the article first. As to whether you read it or not, I can't tell, but you haven't referenced anything from the article, so I find it unlikely.
Bad karma? We carry an eternal death sentence- 'the second death' of Revelation 20+21.
HE? Which he? If all is one it started with IT then became he/she/something else. Basal assumptions
You're just a disgusting vile unfunny ignorant piece of shit. That's all. No reason to be triggered.
They didn't ignore MJ's complaints, though.... Like he literally disappeared for almost a whole decade because of the attention he got and moved to London due to depression.
Still crying about that?
They're upgrading our computers at work today.
You did bring in the word....( Intelligence) .It is your Truth not maybe the Truth.
Sarah would have spoken of it when she read her tweet aloud at the press conference. There was no mention.
Have any idea how long are the strategic plans a powerful nation has, normally? Naive.
I don't give a shit. I am not asking to be enlisted in a popularity contest. I am asking for a very simple thing. Do what you want with your life, don't get in the way of my life and all will be well. That is what western values are all about. We have an understanding of our differences and we should strive to preserve the freedoms we have even if we don't always agree.
What evolutionary biologists are giving up on it? Specifically where are they saying what you are saying and where is it published?
