What's a soul or life force? If you prove a soul or some life force exists that still doesn't mean there is a god or a heaven.
With warm diet Coke.
The president's freedom doesn't include him making personnel staffing advice - especially if it is motivated by his political or economic interests. His tweets and speeches support the former, and my suspicions support the latter.
Historians don't write history by saying, "Oh, this source is tainted, so I'm going to ignore and dismiss it." Instead, we ask, "What can I learn about the past by studying this artifact that comes from it?" The Bible is a historical artifact like any other. Just because it isn't what believers claim it is doesn't mean there's nothing to learn about the past from it, or that it somehow constitutes inadmissible evidence in a historical debate.
My belief entirely.
OK. I'm here.* (I feel like I'm describing a mall map*!).
Yes that is the "Read only" section of Disqus. Posting or commenting is at your own risk.
Yes, there's a lot of misinformation; but that is not the unique fault of the internet and with the democratisation of social commentary that problem is minimised over time.
Doesn't matter what it is for it still is a procedure that doesn't need to be done.
Ha Ha Ha. You need to look up the Templeton Foundation. Just an FYI. Evidence that you can not demonstrate is just your opinion.
"Criteria: It must be called a sin by a religion; and/or you have been personally told it is a sin."
Anymore name calling, Boris, and I'll have to give you a 3-day. Ty.
So what? No evidence=no evidence=forget it!
The term refugee has to be correcty defined, to begin with. Economic migrants are not fleeing immediate danger and they are not refugees. No country has obligation to provide them a residence permit just because they want it. In fact, by allocating resources to helping illegal migrants, we deprive of help those who really need it in war zones, who are in such a bad situation that can't travel half the globe to demand asylum.
My brother and I both got bullied by the same kids on our street. He never killed anyone either
Some scientists once thought that the world is flat.
Sacrifice is when a value is lost. Whether you like it or not (and I dont) sacrifice is a common theme in western thought. Even for some atheists sacrifice is viewed as noble and honorable. Sacrifice your time, money, and belongings. And its always for some bullshit collective like the ?common good?, the state, the government. Its used it to raise your taxes, accept low pay (military) and even live in squaller. The notion of noble sacrifice is used to con people out of livelihoods and even their own lives.
Same. Back in the late eighties when my youngest was a baby, I stayed home and felt bad because I wasn't a "modern working woman". Like I'd let down my generation. With the second one, I worked and got hit with "Why aren't you staying home?"
Outside of the fringe and very minor view of fundamentalist evangelical scholarship, the consensus of mainstream critical scholarship is pretty much in line with my comment.
And what spoke God into existence? Oh wait, never mind, that was done by humans several thousand years ago when they created that character.
If only sociologists agreed with you.
Here is the real facts. Mass shooters are from a wide variety of religious backgrounds, personal ideals age groups, and reasoning for their actions.
we are molecules in motion, and I guess "bags of chemicals" (I think you made that one up) anyways, we are these things regardless of whether god made it that way or we are that way by natural means.
Because they're fire as hell.
Depends on the church.
