I have step-kids. A different animal all together.
This is where you and i disagree. We Worship GOD by assimilating Revelations dispensed by HIS sent ones. By Mediating in the accurate WORD from GOD spoken by HIS sent one, the Son of Man.
There's a large difference between more minor crimes such dealing drugs versus cold blooded murder that was planned out (as was the case here had one of the victims perished). A child may not think he's hurting anyone by dealing drugs so he thinks its okay and other people he knows perhaps have influenced him to do it by engaging in that activity themselves. But planning out a cold blooded murder in a fashion like this something different entirely. Even at that young age, you know its horrifically wrong.
Just listen to him speak.
...or, at least, pretend they are important.
You don't even have that.
Yes! Thank God no fatalities occured
They were hoping for world war three, but they'll settle for some type of financial fallout.
Everything is subjective to one's personal views, the ant living only 8 minutes remains subjectively a lifetime, which remains subjective to one's personal experiences within that time limited lifetime.
Because just enough fools, in the rights states, fell for his bullshit.
Some even teach the murder of disobedient children.
"Read a lot" that's the main ingredient. If you assume "You know science" and deny climate change based on your conservative views, you are an imbecille. Or if you deny it simply because you are a Rught Winger, like Republican politicians will say, "I'm not a scientist but I don't believe", then you are an imbecille.
Didn't miss it. Did you miss the part where I pointed out that the author is a software engineer who thinks he's an expert on the Bible because he went to a Catholic high school? Or the part on his wiki-page where an actual qualified expert points out that an undergraduate could dismantle his arguments?
You are mixing up laws being equal and objective morality. An objective source of morality could be derived without human input. No opinion or judgement needed to derive the morality. However as morality itself is just concept in a human mind then even choosing a criteria for what us considered moral is itself subjective opinion. There is no absolute source of 'this is objectively what morality is regardless of anyones opinion'. At best you can push the subjective nature back some levels to give illusion of objective morality but it is just an illusion, it is still subjective.
"Care to list these other kinds of valid evidence?"
We have a checklist. If the OP checks all the boxes, it gets approved. If it fails to meet the checklist, it does not. That checklist is outlined in the community guidelines.
I wish it were so, sadly, my most recent experience in Graduate school (a few years ago) would suggest otherwise.
Ok, I am done with this discussion. Trying to talk to Christians with positive proof their buybull is full of crap and so is their belief in the Jeebus Myth is just too silly. YOU can believe what you wish. But for myself? I gave up in believing Bronze Age fairy tales and lies a long time ago, just like I gave up believing in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.
So, you asked me to prove a term that I didn't use?
Recruiting, what is this, a gay military? Oh, poor bean, getting upset over people just wanting to be consensually in love and happy.
I never said I could one moral code being better than another. I said society creates the moral code the society follow.
If the same baker gladly accepted an order from a homosexual couple to bake a cake to celebrate the couple's friend's birthday, and the baker happened to know the couple to be homosexual, would that be consistent with the claim that the baker was discriminating against homosexuals?
Media Matters is extremely intolerant.
Too true for millions of young adults. Something needs to be done. What, I don't know.
Describe our date as if it were a frame of bowling.
But we do have real world statistics.
Not so hard to believe you failed to make your point clearly. The evidence is right there.
It's like saying, "hey, I'm a pig, I don't even clean for guests, what do you think about living with me?"
