no I have as much right to post my holy book quotes as you have to post yours!
If I ask a mathematician to prove the Pythagorean Theorem, he does not ask me how I would like to have it proved to me. When I ask a chemist to demonstrate that water is two parts hydrogen to one part oxygen, he does not ask me how I would like to have it proved to me. When I ask an auto mechanic to prove that the head gasket to my Edsel is busted, he does not ask me how I would like to have it proved to me. Yet, when I ask you to prove up the truth of your religious beliefs, you ask me how I would like you to prove them to me--talk about cheap, dishonest special pleading..
We don't even want to know what I have to say about people like that because it's pretty brutal.
Truth will find a way between the heavily armored stretch limousines with private security with guns.
If I state you will be taxed like never before and you are buying a 1,000,000 USD home and it is your first.
It's a business. Judges, prosecutors, and public defenders are all friends and making deals.
Laws have a moral element. Laws that are voted on by the people reflect the moral standard of a society. Such laws are therefore an example of objective morality.
Hmm, did the one from the hometown of Ronald Reagan not even register? I thought we met our weekly quota.
Not if they want to follow God.
Sleep is not unconsciousness. It is absence of memory due to absence of objects of perception to remember. Sleep is bliss consciousness which is why we all love to sleep and hate being pulled out of it.
In part I think Gods style of communication and commandments and rules have to be viewed in the context of the people's and the times they lived in to be appreciated however I do want it both ways as I also think as God is eternal so are his words.However his style or rules might not be for now or us but he is still in his words,behind them.
Well there will always be the smart ones and we are them.
So what your saying is Trump is posturing. Which will not make him seem more trustworthy. If he continues in that vain eventually someone will call his bluff and expose him for the fraud he is.
I would come closer to say ignored honestly
You're presenting it as both are equally likely to lead to either truth or lies. I don't see it that way in the least. The scientific method requires testing. Faith doesn't. An experiment can only give so many conclusions. Faith can give ANY conclusion you want.
Yawn. I didn't start this to debate Christopher Hitchens opinion of Mother Teresa. This thread has gotten seriously side-tracked.
Yes, during class. Ridiculing Christian beliefs about creation, for starters, without prompting.
Why can't you use them for the destination?
Because I've tagged in comment to you several times and I don't even get a reply. I miss you and I don't know why you left. I don't even know what happened I just woke up one morning and I didn't have anybody to say "good morning beautiful" too, or share Cayenne bacon
Because he's still the best player in the world.
Like I said...
what evidence, and what wisdom exactly are you addressing? do you mean his actual wisdom or the collection of stories sometimes referred to as the "wisdom of Solomon"? I think the question I would counter you with, is: what specifically do you think is so wise? wise beyond our current capacity?
Suppose that gods represent divine properties. Ninkasi would represent beer and intoxication, which are divine properties. YHWH evolved from a tribal god to the
I think you can simply act like an adult and stay or act like a child and leave because you got told to act like an adult. Either way, the choice is yours for now, so choose wisely.
Yes. Those dumb 'ol Christians.
There?s no ?truth? in scripture
As I understand it (and I'm far from an expert, so someone correct me if I'm wrong) those cultures that believe in the burqa (including the women themselves) believe that that's the
Everyone is doing it, so I can too. you sound like my 10th grade students.
Nothing about anyone "ceasing to exist," of course.
Do you pick that one for a reason? I don't rely on one place but in regards to trusting it would be low on the list. I would trust Merriam and Oxford before just
again what was your point?
Truth be told, I only use body shaming against horrible human beings, not strangers I know nothing about
Just choose, *don't rationalize* why you don't have to make a choice... the room is burning and you will die in a minute...
It is my contention that the Dorians actually came from Dor in Palestine, a city on the coast of the land of Manasseh, and where many ancient ?Greek? artifacts have been found by archaeologists, for which see Biblical Archaeology Review, July-August 2001, p. 17, and November-December, 2002, ?Gorgon Excavated At Dor?, p. 50. These artifacts show a ?Greek? presence at Dor as early as the seventh century B.C., and are certainly much earlier than the Hellenistic period. The seventh century B.C. is the time of the last recorded Assyrian activity in Israel (see Ezra 4:2, Esar-Haddon reigned from 681 B.C.), and the last deportations of Israelites which happened about 676 B.C. (see The Assyrian Invasions And Deportations of Israel by J. Llewellyn Thomas). For evidence that Israelite priests were indeed present at Dor see Biblical Archaeology Review, May-June 2001, p. 21 and the article there. If the Dorians migrated from Palestine, rather than from the north, Crete is a logical place to begin settling, enroute to the west. Further evidence that the Dorians were Israelites is found in Josephus, in his record of a letter written by a Spartan (or Lacedaemonian, and they were also Dorian Greeks) king to Jerusalem about 160 B.C., which is found in Antiquities 12.4.10 (12:226-227):
Were drugs your defence when you were prosecuted or was it more. " I have a mental illness" a la Lawton?
