You say there are alternative, non-Christian ethical systems. I agree. But basically, there is nothing wrong with 10 commandments, at least more positive than negative.
That makes no sense. It says for example that the Hebrew "God" "killed" a couple hundred thousand folks in one night. You claim that is literal, but in fact, there is no historical record of anything like that having literally happened. Its a metaphor, as I explained. Your choice to view all this crap in an unreasonable way, like fundamentalist folks who also take it literally.
Old does not mean ineffective.
I hate strawman arguments.
well, that is true. but it may depend on the color, how much, or if they have enough lips to put some on.
The church applies the same techniques used in brainwashing, it still does to this day (I know I still go to church 36 years after I stopped believing).
You're right that if your dad's not around you can't have a relationship with him. That's kinda why Jesus came to die in our place, so that the thing holding us back from God (sin) was paid for and no longer can keep us apart. I think what you're talking about (and correct me if I'm wrong) is that you want a relationship that doesn't involve faith. You have that choice, it's your prerogative. But God doesn't walk with us in flesh today because He wants faith to be a central part in our relationship with Him.
That poor guy probably needed therapy after that trip LOLOLOL
The only God. YHVH God. In His Word.
weird, your sun tan indicates otherwise. how did you come by this knowledge?
I dunno - we said we were going to run away with each other and go get bloody marys because we're both already over today lol
If a Muslim sells forks, he's not allowed to refuse to sell them to those who eat non-halal food.
Would you be happier if I said "scientists"? What I am referring to is the collective judgment of scientists.
You're right about one thing, I'm not bothered at all. I don't owe you an explanation. And with that I bid you adieu. Goodbye (:
yes way to many to be believed.
Bear in mind they were talking about a PC super majority less than a month ago. Seems hard to predict what will happen from one day to the next when it comes to Ford.
I can't wrap my head around identifying an entire group by the actions of a few. And even then, is my view of them, of those very few even what I think it is.
I could only bend that way if struck by a car doing 50.....
Oh yeah, infrastructure week, yeah.
You can pretend all you want that it was just normal if that makes you feel better about yourself but it wasnt.
The fact that someone founds the world's largest religion is sufficient reason for anyone to be aware of him. As a Humanist and skeptic, I find the questions of what kind of people found religions, how they found them, and how they get their followers to believe in them to be questions of great historical importance.
Wrong! That was the same message Hillary ran on with trump and she lost. You actually have something to run on besides "well my opponent is worse" it doesn't work, Run on Medicaid! Run on college loans! Run on pot if you have to just stand for something or stop blaming your voters when they don't show up for you.
Yeah? Liberals have been conning Americans for decades.
Sure there is, Caves, they have creatures that live in it who have ancestors who live outside of them who are entirely different yet the same.
Well, don'tcha know that God can do all of those things whenever He wants to do them! By the way, if you even knew half of what you claim about the Bible you would know that the snake was actually Satan.
