Hmm maybe this can help u believe me
1) Is this coworker cute and single?
I didn?t believe in God as a child because my Dad was an atheist secular humanist. Nevertheless, I also was influenced to become passionate about learning and observe my life. In high school, I already began to embrace Taoism casually based on a book my father had by a Comparative Religion scholar. I also was impacted by a pamphlet in the Unitarian Universalist interfaith society and their respect for everyone?s spiritual path.
So give us your thoughts on it. That way we know you better and you know me better. As Relationship is just that. To know one another.
"Do you think we have lost something, regardless of our world view, in the way we have tidied up our dying processes and burial procedures?"
Not true. Science answers the question of "where did the universe come from" with a solid "I don't know". but that in no way means that "godidit"!
Morals are subjective. What is moral to us is not moral to someone else. I read an interesting analysis of the Germans and ethics. The Germans did not become unethical in their approach to the Jews. Instead they accepted a new ethic in which eliminating the Jews became the new morality however distasteful it was to them.
Hey, were you the one who said Mueller would be done in 2 weeks, like, a month ago?
Jailhouse religion is well know among inmates. A person is not a Christian just because they say they are.
"there is no lobby for divorced and remarried acceptance. No one is pushing it in your face. No one is demanding 'rights' for the divorced."
That being said, I do think churches and ministries do a ton of measurable good (we learned religious orgs dwarf FEMA in responding to catastrophes, for example), even moreso than government and provides a lot of free volunteer labor. They'd probably do it anyway, even without tax savings. AND, frankly, I think they'd prove to be more of a witness to society serving without that tax break that some complain about. But, make no mistake, if all those taxes DO get paid by churches, I'm extremely cynical about that money being used well. I'm sure there'd be a ton of waste.
I can see it happening. Doug not wanting to give Renata her fair share of which she's entitled being DoFos widow. His sleazy ways are coming back to bite him in the ass.
You are free to do what you want to with your own time .I have read the Bible in its entirety about 5 or 6 times and regularly listen to sermons and lectures on these topics.
One of the fun char I played was a very religious man, who believed souls could not move to a new body with mind uploading. That the upload would be a soul less copy and not a real person. And he woke up after his death in a cheap robotic body with an indenture to pay off and struggled with the concept of his soul, his faith and if he was really him or just a soulless copy.
Okay, you and I are on the same page, most of the time; however, even **I** know that those were examples for edification, not intended to be directed toward anyone.
Then let me provide you with others.
Dogs have shot a surprising number of people. Of course... this raises the immediate question of "who lets their dog near a loaded fire arm?"
