We cannot ?consider ? any idea ?independently ? of human thoughts. Your claim we can do so for matter but not thought is nonsense
There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter-of-fact it's all dark.
LOL, you forgot the sarc tag.
You can be a Christian and be gay, in the same way that you can lie or steal and still be a Christian. The takeaway is this: Christians aren't perfect. We still should try to honor God with our lives.
I see no good news in them
This is one of the most pathetic excuses for believing in magic and super-spooks.
It seems that the only things left to run on would be raising taxes, scaring minorities and maybe sending a few more billion dollars to the Iranian mullahs.
CS Lewis is what it was attributed to, although it might have origins that are older.
LOL - my intolerance for Christian bigotry makes me a bigot. I get it. It's the only argument that's been forwarded here. And it's an argument intended to undermine the very concept of bigotry, to rehabilitate bigoted ideas, and ultimately to justify the violence done by Christians.
And there's a lack of a generic creator-being of any kind.
Well, he'd be working on getting women into long dresses by law, and forget about animals that need shootin'. ??
If you can list a few of these miracles it might help your case.
Even if the harassment is of a religious nature, like saying that you're going to burn in hell for not conforming to gender norms?
The existence of Jesus Christ is an article of faith, not an historical fact. Outside of the Bible there are no contemporary reports of his existence and there would be as the Bible claims Jesus' fame spread throughout the land. We have a lot of historians reporting on various things in that time and place and none mention Jesus or any Christians. Christians humiliate themselves in this argument by having to resort to spurious hearsay accounts from writers who were not even alive during the time Jesus supposedly lived when pressed for extra-biblical evidence. These are known to be Christian forgeries anyway as early Christianity was a literal fabrication factory. The elephant in the room for Christians is the fact that there are no historical accounts contemporary or otherwise that mention any of the supposed apostles either. Nothing about Paul preaching on Mars Hill. No mention of Peter bringing new doctrine to Rome. No accounts of any disciples being martyred for their faith. History is completely silent when it comes to anything mentioned in the New Testament. No mention of Herod's slaughter of the innocents. No mention of any trial, crucifixion or resurrection and outside of the fictional characters in the Bible there are no witnesses to any of it. No mention of the world going dark or dead people climbing out of their graves and appearing to many other people in Jerusalem. I think that might have caught someone's attention had it actually happened don't you? There is no question as to whether Jesus Christ existed. He clearly did not.
I'm just playin' with ya ;)
Did I post this one yet?
Obama is out of office, figuring out how he can spend the tens of millions he got out of his book and movie deals, enjoying his life. He doesn't need damage control.
She would have lived. Two thirds of Irish voters thought so.
The free press in the US is to diverse to do much of anything together. They might adhere to the same standards of decency as everybody else, but that's about all. They all want to get the truth to people and know that if they lie other free press outlets will call them for it.
Carlin is a good businessman: He appeals to phony, pretentious, sententious, wanna-be intellectuals/enlightened jerks.
They can be the worst, actually. Well, other than my BigLaw firm which had, as a highlighted specialty *employer side HR counseling & litigation*. As I practiced a lot of employment law there, I used to tear out clumps of hair on the regular! ??
Trump supporters are not out assaulting people. I would have no problem wearing a burka in the south. I am not worried about getting attacked. It might disgust some of them but they are not going to attack me. In your case though, you know for a fact you are getting attacked in certain cities wearing a Trump hat. Wear one to the next so called peaceful liberal protest and see how that goes also....Please let us know how it goes....Prove to us that the left is tolerant!

Permission to post Westboro Baptist Church signs as evidence of homophobia?
