You don't come off like an ignoramus. You just definitely come off as someone fairly new to the topic of whether Jesus existed, though I can tell that you're actually interested in what the facts are (which is more than what could be said about some others).
fruit loops, vapid...cuckolded
Not only atheists : anybody who can think straight.
i thought Obama',s shovel ready jobs fixed our infrastructure. Where did that go?
Well, I left Christianity (primarily the dogma and the social institution), although I agree with some of the concepts, such as the ?judge not lest you be judged? ideas mentioned in the OP. But that particular idea, and many other Christian ideas that are good or beneficial can and do exist outside of Christianity and are not necessarily tied to Christianity.
Did Alexander the Great write about things that we don't believe are possible, like coming back from the dead? If he just wrote about finding amazing animals and going on a conquest to other lands then that's pretty believable. Zombies are not. Or are all claims equal in your eyes?
No, there was a story a few years back when Georgia arrested a lot of illegals without work permits in the fields. An enterprising young man wanted to start a shuttle service for folks living in HUD housing to the fields to work, but he couldn't get any takers from those living in subsidized housing.
So somehow you are now the first person to find empirical evidence for God? Do tell.
Who's you people?
The RCC is not a homogeneous organization but there is one constant, it does protect it?s image and it?s brethren, against all odds. We only need to look the way it has handled the numerous cases of paedophilia and sexual abuse by clergymen for decades. To think that there were not sympathizers and enablers within the RCC to the Reich would be denialism. When you hear first hand members of the RCC clergy going on Jew bashing rants in discussions with your own grandfather who until the day he died in 1992 proudly wore the hideous Hitler moustache gives you a quite different perspective on the Church. Shortly before he died I did question my grandfather on that period as he was there at the foundation of the Canadian Christian National Social Party and was an early collaborator of Adrien Arcand. At the start of WW2, many members of the then fascist National Unity Party after the fusion with other fascist groups were rounded up and detained for the duration of the war but many were not. Many like my grandfather received protection from Church authorities.
Most of those things, I'll grant you are true. I'll address federal funds to PP momentarily.
David Ulansey (the author from the link you included) even indicates the notion of Mithra being born from a rock (or at least that this was the tradition. He wrote on that same page that you cited: "But caves are precisely hollows within the rocky earth, which suggests that the rock from which Mithras is born is meant to represent the Mithraic cave as seen from the outside."
You are correct. I should have been more specific that I think Buffett is atypical in that the vast majority of his income is via lower rate sources such as dividends and capital gains.
Yeap. You got to be that 'cool girl'. I mean, I know some women are honestly bisexual and attracted to other women but whenever these things comes up, it's usually about always appeasing the male gaze and men AND women objectifying other women for the male gaze.
Possibly. What I was saying was he could be choosing to spend $400 a month on his mortgage and $400 a month on a car, and being cautious with the rest.
This video has stuck with me. It's short and informative about suicide's impact on friends and family.
I know the definition
I'm the inside. I like being made feel warm and protected on the inside in the spoon. : )
The Golden Rule; "Do unto others as you would have them Do unto You." - unless your insane and/or a sadomasochists.
