I agree and also will say your personal beliefs should not be allowed either. Basically that means there should be no government because personal beliefs are what laws are based from.
The Bible is a collection of contradictory myths and folk tales, mixed in with a little history, originally written in obscure and now dead languages, translated differently over a hundred different times just in English, reinterpreted, modified, and amended on numerous occasions over a period spanning at least 3,000 years. Due to its hopeless ambiguity, it is and has been subject to endless debate regarding its interpretations. (Unfortunately, your god never speaks or does anything to clarify the ambiguity which is a problem all gods suffer from.) As a consequence, there has been an endless parade of interpretations of the Bible with the more than one hundred different translations producing over 40,000 different Christian denominations, each with their own unique interpretation of the Bible. This is obviously the work of ignorant, uneducated, and superstitious men and hardly the work of an all-knowing, all-powerful, god.
Is that a euphemism?
I agree with GHF. "Morals" as given by god, are not morals at all. They are commands. Much like when we command our dog to get off the couch. He does. Not because it is the 'moral' thing to do but because of fear
I don't know much about you at all (your account is private) and I made no reference to a particular religion. I reacted to what I read. You sound like you hate atheists. (Rabid. Horrendous. Preachers.)
Yeah her comments in the article were more enlightening. And to her sentiment, I can definitely empathize. It's just unfortunate he took the brunt of it. I think the two just need to have a conversation.
Ian Kershaw; Hitler: a Biography; Norton; 2008 ed; pp. 295?297: "In early 1937 [Hitler] was declaring that 'Christianity was ripe for destruction', and that the Churches must yield to the 'primacy of the state', railing against any compromise with 'the most horrible institution imaginable'"
Someone took you literally, I saw.. I'm still snickering ????
Not wondering about the criticism: I'm wondering about the rage.
I reject the basis of the questions at hand.
It's five minutes, thankyouverymuch.
Yes. It's hard to find a suburban home with a garage big enough to fit my F-150. GRRRRR
Where does Islam call for suicide bombing?
But sharts are even funnier. Unless it happens to you. Then it blows.
Sounds like a plan.
Big, huge maybe.
Theories do not cause anything. We don't know why large objects attract or distort space time. Physical laws are human descriptions of human observations. They no more cause stuff to happen than a recap of a baseball game caused the game to be played. Yikes!
Slow down there, Muggle...no need to all caps me.
re: "I'm not going to read all that rhetoric."
What a damn fool.
Really: The Catholic Church had 1900 years. Jews were thriving all over Europe and the Catholics were reduced to controlling 4 squalid blocks and some long-term land-leases in Rome... with Protestants running the world!
"Preparation? Not gonna happen. Believe me. I'll rely on Dennis Rodman."
Sorry beggerbond but the link is still there.
The 20 year old Pell Mell would be appalled at where I am in my 30s but I'm in a happier mental place now and I'm working on not giving a f*ck about what anyone else thinks.
Oh I can Deal with it JUST FINE!!!
That's exactly what Jesus meant when he said "Love your neighbor as you would love yourself", right? Sad.
What are you talking about? Was that a response to my comment?
Good morning! I already see that you are not really interested or give any real thought to what I say.
Why do you think I wear a Saxon chieftain's helmet? (Although my name is Jones and my granddad played soccer for Wales.)
