Actually, it was all about my Dad?s library at that point, and my own needs. At that point, that was adequate. My Dad did have a book on Tai Chi and Chuang Tzu?s work. In college I picked up a nice used copy of "Lao Tzu?s" little baby, and Alan Watts? Man, Woman, & Nature.
How do my decisions affect your life and not just your beliefs about how everybody should live their lives?
I'm actually ok with this.
3/4 of posters, I'd bet, rather not the entire membership.
That also doesn't mean they don't convert. It just means they aren't public with it.
I get it. You believe every word of a 1400 year old book as the answer to Everything. Unalterable, never to be changed, the last word.
I miss Harris Glenn Milstead too
Fine. Continue to avoid the question.
Spoken like a true politician. JK Well said.
They're only good for spinning on the lunch table so they stand upright.
it is, but she raises my hopes and then doesn't go through, it's like when she says "I dare you jump over the train lines when the train is coming, I'll do you a BJ if you do that!" I go ahead and do what ever thing she dares me to and I've never seen the BJ, she owes me like at least 5 BJs! XD
I thought that no personal editorialising was allowed on BN posts if it isn?t an op/ed.
You basically called the guy a Pedo and now act surprised by his reaction?
I take all written history with a big grain of salt. Knowing that history is written by the victors I trust very little of it. In the rare case that it is really important to know what happened I try to read multiple accounts and draw my own conclusion. I recently read a book about the American revolution, written by English historians not long after the event. They paint a very different picture. If you go back before the industrial revolution most history is questionable.
It is not because of our 'curse', but because of our "practice" that we are Judged. If you attach yourself to The Lord - Yeshua, aka Jesus - then "your sins are forgiven" and we - if repented - will receive His Holy Spirit, and He will make the change in us. Not our deeds.
You sound really gay
I have given you an article that was verified. The abortionist in question was tried and convicted.
Which of these are they like?
I don't abide by the precepts of christianity except where they happen to intersect with my own morality (don't kill don't steal etc) I do live a life that pleasures me here and now but as I don't believe in an afterlife, I do things that will extend my life like eating right and exercising and I don't invite teenagers to orgies because I want the years I have on this planet to not involve prison.....besides I am not particularly comfortable with sex involving more than 2 people..
Is it weird that I want to both be that dog AND take a nap on his super fluffy coat?
Then he shouldn't have signed his PUBLIC BUSINESS LICENSE which states that he would OBEY ALL State and Federal Non-Discrimination Laws.
it's an extremely large and insurmountable step from PE to creationism. PE is a variation regarding the catalyst of evolution, your inaccurate Wikipedia quote doesn't change that. PE is unequivocally still tied to speciation which doesn't fit your AIG approach at all. PE certainly doesn't propose stasis through "most of its geological history". the theory of evolution is completely intact, which you would know if you looked at it with the intent of trying to understand what is true, instead of just trying to back up your point. all I see you talk about is evolution, and yet you've never bothered to learn about the subject. in point of fact, if you could prove evolution false tomorrow, it wouldn't even make the proposition of your god more likely... not even a little bit.
I'm not an atheist, and I have done all that you suggest my entire life. As a result I've arrived at what I believe to be a genuine understanding of god and what god has tasked his creation with. I'm just not confusing this understanding with
Nothing like "lying for Jesus", eh? This ought to be the featured comment.
WYWH. I think we are in a general agreement here. I am not sure what all humanities great questions are but I do think the answers can be generally found in education., to your point.
In many circumstances it is.
I KNOW JIVE!
He tries so hard.
