In an experiment with rats, one rat was trained to push a switch and receive a food pellet as a reward. Over and over the rat would push the button and get a pellet. Then another cage with another rat was placed along side it. Now, when the rat in the first cage pushed the button, in addition to getting a food pellet, the other rat received an electrical shock. With a short time the first rat stopped pressing the button. He was giving up his food source to stop the other rat from being shocked.
Again, if that is the real Islam, why don't we have much more of it in the last 1400 years, instead of only the last 20 years?
Non-toxic masculinity = what in your mind ? also is there toxic-femininity and if so how do you define that ?
Then why do I constantly hear and read that without god there is no morality and that there is no reason to condemn rape, murder, etc?
Great minds. :) I suspected this would probably already be in here somewhere. Ah well...
I didn?t realize you were a professional educator! Good for you as it should be a part time job for you so you can qualify for the SNAP program
And the dangerous mind pollution of religion
Posting discussions suck hard. I am much better at playing off a topic than creating all new material.
umm...I didn't. That's my wife...Son??
(1) - Do you think, in such a precarious situation, demanding such sacrificing decisions from the community for the benefit of the community, the leadership would be right to engage in Plato's "Noble Lie" constructing a myth so everyone sticks with their obligation?
If just a comment was deleted it would appear as "removed" in your own history that you can view. The only way that it could disappear completely is if the entire page itself were deleted by a mod.
Something "objectively moral" would be moral in all circumstances.
I need positivity this morning.
Obama waged war on the cops by simply making the shooting about race. These cops for the most part wasn't racist but when they were accused of being racist. That's an attack on them and after so long people become racist because of that. Nevermind more black cops shot blacks than white ones. Then again actually looking at the evidence and making a intelligent decision isn't a dem strong point.
It's for the courts to decide if you've been legitimately stigmatized and attacked as part of a group you belong to.
LHN is just a echo chamber like NFE. Although that's a good thing, because all the people that couldn't handle being challenged fled NV to LHN
Never once did he say that he Bible is ?not all true?. He may have called Maher out on saying things that are ?not all true? which is how he won the debate. Maher?s side is pointed out to be falsifiable, which is how Douthat wins.
Fair point, but if who can marry is up for revision why can't who can perform it not also be? For all of the time marriage was a legal term (and before that when it was derived from cultural tradition) marriage was a union of a man and a woman. Deciding we will alter who can be in a marriage while also then declaring who can perform it is off limits seems a little doctrinaire.
God demonstrated His love to each and every creature, as the Messiah.
Sharia is not only about prayer methods. Sharia laws apply to anyone living in an Islamic country, whether they're Muslims or not, inasmuch non-Muslims are not granted the same rights of Muslims.
Evolution isn't merely "true" - it is the only thing that fits all the mountain of fossil evidence and the DNA of every current living thing.
The safest spot is now "the beaches". No one goes there because of the stink coming off Lake Ontario and of course the water is so cold you'll die. If you like dog poop, it's a must.
