I dearly hope you're actually Jesse Lee Peterson. That would be amazin'
Wikipedia should never be the last word about anything IMHO!
So every homosexual was abused as a child? Doesn't wash. I would guess there are a lot more abused children out there than there are homosexuals.
You keep forgetting that no cause is needed when something has existed eternally in the past.
Well no. The affirmatively atheist is claiming that he or she is without belief in "theism". "Theism" means belief in God or god. When you use that word "God" or "god" to define yourself, what definition and use are you making of that ambiguous word? How is the affirmatively atheist using that word to define his own state of mind different than a religious person using that ambiguous term to describe his or her own state of mind?
Every time you specify a vagina, an angel gets its wings.
Because they presented an obstacle to his power.
I don't do belief. I follow the evidence. The evidence is that you don't know whether or not the things which you consider to be god thingies even exist, let alone whether or not they deserve to be regarded as god thingies or whether they are the same or different from other god thingies, because you have zero intersubjectively verifiable evidence for any of this. You and thousands of people like you have provided the evidence that this is the case, by demonstrating that you have no idea of how to reply to these simple questions.
Now if we can get a lot of the lazy, fat folks off their sofas & to work, we might get welfare roles down.
There is zero reason for any Vet to be homeless,unless they are mentally ill or have an addiction problem,and you just can't drag people out of homelessness.They have to want to end it,they must look for help to end it it.Our Veteran's benefits are amongst the best in Canada,haven't you noticed that it's mostly civilians complaining about the care our Veterans get?The only real complaint I've heard from Veterans is the backlog of soldiers waiting to get their benefits,and yes we have to do something about that......
Go through the comments and count how many "Straw Man" arguments you can find!
Yay! Favor for bigotry and discrimination and homophobia!
its a funny article that isnt partisan. Tired of trump supporters making everything partisan.
In one way they are both the same. In another they are not
Javale thinks he's George Gervin on that finger roll.
What kind of God forbids knowledge?
That is what the myth claims. You either believe the myth or you do not
Because it requires federal tax dollars to pay for a religious education. That is a First Amendment no no.
A reasonable person would suspect that the story of a transfer of sin at birth, to every human, at the fault of someone who sinned thousands of years ago, thereby requiring allegiance to the only god that can allegedly neutralize the sin, to avoid punishment after death, is a scheme to promote allegiance to that god.
"The lure of a wider audience to display your prowess coupled with the basic dehumanization of the audience that comes with the medium make for a powerful combo."
I was using "discovered" in the rather narrower sense of "discovered and published in peer-reviewed academic literature." For the sake of R. Brookes and any other early starters I may have left out, I'll amend my statement to 18th century. My point, though, was that when a discovery was made has no direct bearing on its validity. Archaeologists aren't part of some conspiracy to make fake pottery for the Israeli tourism board; they simply didn't seek or gain permission to survey or excavate in Nazareth before the 20th century.
I followed your link but it took me to a page that dealt with God and evolution. I didn't think that Buddhism had anything to do with God?
What is lame is this, you are trying to project yourself onto me and it isn't working because my head only has enough room to make decisions for myself.
MOST liberals are pedophiles? None of my liberal friends seem to be the type. A couple of my friends on the far right seem to be obsessed with young girls, though.
Best I can do is, the existence of God can't be disproved.
Thank you ! I could not figure out thatt cartoon! Now it makes perfect sense. Dont know why I didnt see it before. ?????????
The average poor person in those countries can see a doctor when their sick too
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. ???????
So do I. That has NOTHING to do with Catholic dogma. Another bizarre question.
Oh. How should I have answered the question?
LOL. You are truly Hilarious! I'm gathering logic isn't your thing.
Well, growing up in the church I didn't question anything and took everything in as it was taught, on faith.
