1. Besides the fact that most educated Romans understood by the 2nd century, as many Westerners do today, that the core myths of their religion were fables that were doing nothing to advance the progress of civilization, Roman religion and the values to which it gave rise had become pretty corrupt by the end of the 3rd century. Slavery, strict patriarchy, emperor-worship, animal sacrifice (occasionally on a massive scale), gladiator duels to the death, augury, infanticide - I don't view any of these things with moral indifference.
There are several tests (as there always are). Is he a human or an organization? Is he exclusively engaged in religious, educational, medical, or agricultural research or promulgation?
Funny that Jesus would attack the bankers for taking money from the poor but doesn't so much as say a word against the slavers. It's almost as if he... accepts slavery! He allows and accepts it, the exact definition of condone.
What about all the tariff revenue?
The point is that in the West, many atheist talk about their experiences with evangelical and fundamentalist Christianity.
Even before this all the lawns had been going to seed and the weeds were growing everywhere since Trump stopped the cheap lawn care people from coming back to the US.
I do care. This is a very difficult issue. I constantly have to remind believers that there isn't a more empty promise than the Christian promise of salvation. You're doing a dirt bath when you die. That's it.
Yeah sure. And the cow jumped over the moon. Your death cult is not going to save you.
Lol I was just listening to that song... Honestly, my summer is never right if I don't play it.
He has not and NEVER will been indicted. FBI is under scrutiny for hassle of Trump campaign during last election. Dream On.
yes - you know that's fake right?
Agreed. As does the interesting experience of Christianity. It?s massively powerful development through fueling the invention of secularized University-linked Corporate organization and its abuse of Science has made the truths of other religious relations with God a powerful tool, as in Tai Chi, Yoga, and Buddhist meditation for example.
Yes...I see you are talking biology.
The christ myth is a certainty.
And that is NOT what the bible states. To take it that way is to say that it was in existence before it came to be. The Bible merely states that the universe, the "heavens" AND, or 'along WITH' the earth as a planet in space, were there, as the established foundation BEFORE it was prepared for life. THAT is in complete agreement with science as we know it.
Yeah, it's not like there's going to be some killer find that destroys evolution, like some guys demand. It's rather that the honest observer looks at these kind of things you've listed and says "They're just making this up as they go, aren't they?" There's really zero evidence of a long string of mutations producing what we have today. It's just pattern making, seeing shapes in the clouds, and that doesn't mean there really is a dog up there in the sky.
My daughter likes to know the "why" to everything.
Well, that's the
You can't prove to exist period.
Sorry, I just think that's an excuse people use to be rude. No one chooses to be hurt. It just happens.
I wouldn't apologize just because some butthurt woman didn't get the 90's "Are You Being Served?" reference.
Licenses and permits: I always thought this was to ensure taxes would be paid -- and of course to regulate safety.
I tried to post a GIF, but it didn't post. : / Let me try again.
LOL. I was answering *your* question:
For this one, it WAS the right decision, but the decision was based on the wrong details, not the details of the case. So, we can guarantee there will be other cases. But, in the future, lower governing bodies will have to be more neutral and less bigoted if they want decisions to stick.
Yeah, but the theology is pretty clear now that all people are welcome to the New Covenant forged by Jesus, and it doesn't require obeisance to Levitical law.
It was not what we can call free will. Free will, dear Paul, is to be able to control the magnitude of the forces that make your desision. We simply don't have that ability. I could not control the desire to respond to you, as I could not have controlled the desire not to do it.
You don't have to be married to get pregnant....She left the Temple at Puberty. She was promised to Joseph.... " I have known no Man " ...would she have seen a Priest as a Man ?...... ?? ??
Don't start the "it's ok to be gsy, its just not ok to be gay" thing
