If you are not interested in understanding what Muslims believe about Islam, but instead want to present your own ideas about Islam, why should anyone care to listen? Since you are not going to implement them, like many Muslims do, why should I care what you believe about Muhammad?
No. I'm saying your question appears to be a straw man put forth in some unsophisticated attempt to rationalize an apparently misguided perception that Christians are somehow unfairly persecuted... But, if you can point me to a particular forum where atheists in general can't distinguish a fundamentalist from a moderate in any religion, let alone compare and contrast them to one another and I can see that evidence for myself, then I might be compelled to acquiesce to your point of view.
If you present an argument I only ask that you back it up. I would if asked. If you don't want to have this conversation. Don't.
People, many of them poor, are paying an absolute fortune for their healthcare when most of the money they spend is used to make the shareholders of insurance companies and hospitals rich. It needs to be run on a not for profit basis.
You are correct on the population. We are the third largest country in the world. China, India ahead of us. I would say two major countries have had repect for us for a long time. That would be the U.K. ,Japan .Just look at the UN ? Very few countries support us on much. Never have.The European countries liked Obama ,because he wanted to adopt all the things they do.In Asia ,our only support came from Japan, Korea, because we allowed them to sell their products very cheaply.I ask myself why should any country repect us ? The answer is our military act as their police.We are the only country to give millions to other countries to help them with food, infrastructure.We get very little repect from them in return. The Chinese are mining Africa for all kinds of minerals. They are paying for the rights to mine. Not one African nation has any repect for China. China is enslaving the people and stripping the land.The leaders get the money and do not share it with the citizens. Personally I don't give a damm about any African nation. They are all corrupt.Why would we want to help them ?
Ok fair enough, Look again there is lots of fascinating stuff. Let me rephrase my question what did you gain by walking away?
Soylent Green. LOL
Th first link does not back you up and the second states the idea it is mark has been rejected. Now what is neat is they did find parts of Mark from about 90 CE in a deathmask in 2015. This predates the oldest confirmed fragment by 50 years or more. Sadly, it is likely to be years before we know how close it is to the other fragment ( s we know the gospel of Mark changed over time) but it is very interesting
That's a single correlation, but there are others. It's certainly not conclusive, and is loaded with narrative.
Aye have no other choice !!! it's not easy nor fun, but Aye'd rather suffer in this present evil world and escape the judgment of eternal damnation!!!
Well. since she's being judged as an underage convict, when shes at home shes gonna be disciplined with Machetes instead of brooms... .
How do you mean 'claimed authority' ?
Now that's what I call a supersized cup of Kool Aid!
I like that one.
TI deserved it. There are a lot of people in Atlanta with new money but don't have the manners to go with it.
The 50's and early 60's because I was a young boy and young adult in those times. I have good times even today but it's not the same
Right. Like "Ignorance is bliss." Oh, wait. You?re not actually engaging in empirical argument. You?re trying to avoid it. How very ideological of you. Well, I?ll give you credit for being vague and engaging in magical thinking about the Social Sciences as almost all anti-theists do. Atheist Philosopher Michael Ruse has nailed Dawkins and the "New Atheists" for his being very poorly informed in that same way.
Okay. But my sense was that was diversity and globalism. Less canadian patriotism but some
It was not meant to back up my idea just to show you even in secular source says 90AD not 100-200 years after the fact. If you look at 7Q5 its possible we have a fragment of Mark 6:52-53 dating to sometime sooner than 68AD.

Yes, but the immoral acts they do are the exception and not the rule. Self-governing without a moral compass is anarchy.
Mr.99%, God allows us free choice. We however, are sinners. You see, we are not sinners because we sin, we sin because we are sinners.
Well the liberals federally chose a surname with nice hair rather than a rocket scientist.
thats like being the one ood feid who wold not go buy you ciggatettes, whenyou were out. some times saying no is the best freind..
It's so true. The legal protections in this country were created because women were being targeted for harassment intended to drive them out of the workplace. Absolutely no one should need to endure that. But it was not intended to guarantee that no one could be offended while at work, ever. That's the work of crooked lawyers, not my feminism.
