Truth ?.....the good and the bad ? ?? ??
I mean if you want to dismiss a data driven analysis on one of the most scientifically advanced nations in the world, then go ahead. Bringing up random characteristics about the American government does nothing to address the contents of my argument. If you are going to somehow imply this trend in America is the oddball, then actually back up your claim. Show data where religious people give less money.
Yes, that is one of the usual claims of Christ Myth theory - the earliest Gospel - Mark - invented a biological Jesus, the carpenter-sage, as a fleshing-out of what had previously been a purely transcendent figure, known only through mystical union, dreams, visions and revelations.
Sunday recognized as a god's day worldwide?
I explained it to StrontiDog
To put it plainly Christ died because it was the will of the Father God.
Funny you should say that. In reality it's just a collaboration of words, strung together to be said in unison at the beginning of class. Honestly, how many kids actually pay attention to what they're saying? Most would probably just memorize it.
Obama likes you.
Our next enlightenment will come from the most secular countries like Sweeden that keep religion out of everything.
Generally, it's healthier to be circumcised.
That's when I slug hot cough syrup!
He might not make it...
Exactly! Why is so wrong about slavery from an Atheist perspective? It makes no sense that argument keeps getting dragged up?
You really really hate that guy don't you?
There are lots of Western Ideas. I referred to a Western Idea. The idea of free speech, freedom of thought, personal autonomy and responsibility, respect for the dignity of others, good faith and good will. For competent free thinkers, this is not hard to understand.
First of all, those people are not thinking about "cost-effectiveness." They are eating what tastes good. Period. It is the same mentality and attitude that leads them to "poverty." Immediate gratification, lack of self-discipline, unwillingness to delay satisfying desires.
I KNEW IT! Everyone's participation in hell is voluntary...being punished must turn us on ;)
You just don't like the evidence because it challenges your worldview.
My great-grandparents were also immigrants. Legally, through Ellis Island. Which is the way many of our ancestors got here.
There is not a marriage out there where the one has NOT let the other one down, on occasion. But love, the kind of love that endures regardless, will win the day.
WV was a Democrat state until just recently. I know WV quite well, actually. I would say the real problem with WV schools is culture - kids just don't see the point of education. I can drop out now and get $15/hour or I can get my diploma and make $15/hour.
I don't mind the subject.
I still don't understand. If you are not religious then religion doesn't affect your life. I mean I believe in God but it has never came up in everyday life.
go find it and educate me. I will wait.
I'm sorry, I just believe in the power of God. I look at videos &
Haha...I don't think hair is that big a deal either, until you get a crappy haircut : ) I guess what I should have said was...does it matter that her dad prefers her to have long hair? In the end, it's not his hair, and as a dad, he needs to understand that his 13 yr old daughter is growing up and starting to make her own decisions, and, as a dad, it would be in his best interest to at least listen to, and entertain his daughter's desire to possibly shorten her own hair. Maybe she could try to reason with him by playing to his own ego or sense of control by telling him, "if I don't like it, I'll grow it long again. I need to try it out for myself though, because that's what I'd like to do."
Throughout history, yes, most notable scientists have been Christian, so what?
Pardon, but Ive never said "Christians cant be liberal or progressive"
Gilbert Wald,,, Are you a son of Amalek, an Edomite or a Shelahnite.
"Yet to most religious people these lines are unknown." -- Please provide proof for that claim. I find it difficult to believe that the majority of followers of Catholicism and Islam are not aware of the hell threat.
lol....a wild claim with zero facts
