Ah, so Pascal's wager is refuted by you.
Yes lets show all the math so my work leaves into internet land unprotected. Really logical. Start a petition.
Every government in the West is operating the same way. Spending way more than they take in and running deficit after deficit and accumulating more debt. It's not sustainable.
To be honest I had rather be comparatively well off than not. I had enough of the latter bringing up four kids and moving countries in my thirties.
*snort* True story.
Yes, they are. I never said that they weren't. But they also are not the *only* Christians, Gillette.
Well, Lucas went as far as pointed out that Star Wars was heavily influenced by
LOL yeah. The amount of hate spread on the religious channel toward Islam is silly.
My wife and I have been married for 62 years, I am atheist while she is a regular at her Anglican church. Our secret is we don't talk religion.
It happens on a supernatural level......You nor anybody else can stop it.
Who is going to fight? You, "John?" Are you planning on taking up arms?
>>"They cannot vote to institute religion, etc. But it can inform them, just as with another politician, issues over poverty, the importance of education, etc., can inform them and determine their voting."<<
An abortion IS accountability. a child should not be punishment.
nothing but organic....
Thanks for your thoughts.
I think you need your I.Q. checked.
I can't remember if it was in this article or another of his that I read - but he said you can never generalize. Someone could have 50 partners and not much like sex or be any good at it. Someone with 1 could be all in and be the best. Generalizations are harmful!
to answer the question, even though i'm a dude i'd rather it be a surprise but it comes with a condition and that is, it can't be in front of other people in case i want to say no, wouldn't enjoy the uncomfortable situation in front of a bunch of people cause hey my partner might be ready to get married but i might not be. My own personal take on marriage, I really don't care for it whatsoever and don't plan on ever getting married to whomever my partner ends up being unless its absolutely necessary for some legal purpose. I don't care about the concept of marriage and not a big fan of walking down any aisles or having some party, I'd rather use that money to take my partner exploring around the world. I don't need to take any sort of oath of loyalty or anything like that, if i ever do find a partner in life, I have no intentions of ever betraying them and will always be brutally honest with them as well as be there for her. I'd except no less from her. If that's not enough for her, then I'll be packing up and leaving. never liked marriages or weddings when i was a little kid and told myself i wouldn't deal with the crap and if my partner refuses to be with me cause i won't have a wedding, then their loss and I guess we'll be going our separate ways (you could prob throw arguments in my face here on why this is stupid of me, but i don't care, I do what i say i'm gonna do even if others don't agree or find it stupid, as long as i'm fine with it). This is if I even find a partner in life (i don't really look, it'll either happen or it won't, doesn't bother me). the only thing I'm concerned about is at what point in a relationship, should i let my partner know that i'm not a marriage type of person and that I just view it as a huge headache, the whole getting married, and the divorce if it doesn't work out (which seems to be pretty high in this age). sorry for the rant
fat shaming women? I may have just lost all respect for you.
Poverty and opportunity and education are the primary factors.
Heh, guess that would be the case then. So he would have to refuse the heterosexual couple service because they're doing the gay couple a favour by placing the order?
I love when he does little surprises like that...little surprises.
See, if I went over and his place was really dirty, especially kind of early on, I would probably not be inclined to keep dating him. I'm not trying to spend my time cleaning up after a grown man.
Santa will spit on them. :P
Me neither. I got more outdoorsy as an adult. Never killed anyone either! A miracle! Praise him!
You are being offered a choice as well, to reject superstitious nonsense and accept critical thinking and reason or continue to believe that a supernatural creature is going to bend the laws of physics for you.
I'm not racist. I just love saying racist stuff. Freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeddduuuuuummmbbbbbbb!
Because charities deserve tax deduction, as long as they comply with charitable laws. Just like all charities. Why wouldn't they?
Don't eat the Tide Pods
No problem. But you can take me for "somebody". And just stay with us because we are all "somebody's with these "shortcomings". That is why Jesus died. To enable us to stay together. Obviously you might have a struggle to stay with me. And I will not have on "staying with you.
Just found this...its south Carolina and it was a ceramic squirrel..http://
You are right. Throughout history cultures have turned to A deity to explain away the things that they couldn't understand and to tell stories that explained how they got to be where they were. As things became known most cultures didn't need the deity for that purpose. Therefore there was a time when people stopped worshiping the sun god because they knew the sun always comes up in the East and sets in the West. Current religions are based mostly on life after death, a concept invented to keep people in religion in general.
Yes, it was a translated term. My point was that the original Christianity was a religion of communities. In the same way as modern Judaism and Islam.
