As bad as they are, secret deals are much better than the out in the open deals Putin and Trump want.
In the vedic tradition a qualified teacher is necessary to interpret scripture otherwise the reader will interpret it according to his or her ignorance and preferences. The scripture is not considered the source of the knowledge, only the official record. The source is consciousness itself.
Yes we are. The goal is to move into a house with no debt at all. I can do a lot of fixing up stuff so long as the bones are good. This house would leave us with several thousand for projects if needed. The house is a little less than an hour from my work in a backwater town (not as bad as it sounds, I LIKE rural towns)
Wow, you are one judgemental Christian aren't you.
You mean the god you cannot prove exists along with the Messiah which you can't prove existed? You mean the testamentum flavianum more than half of which consists of serotinous, interpolated passages? Now care to cite any more of these ample historical writings, the beliefs of Muslims notwithstanding?
If I ask a mathematician to prove the Pythagorean Theorem, he does not ask me how I would like to have it proved to me. When I ask a chemist to demonstrate that water is two parts hydrogen to one part oxygen, he does not ask me how I would like to have it proved to me. When I ask an auto mechanic to prove that the head gasket to my Edsel is busted, he does not ask me how I would like to have it proved to me. Yet, when I ask you to prove up the truth of your religious beliefs, you ask me how I would like you to prove them to me--talk about cheap, dishonest special pleading..
Search for the word: "Judgement". Then comment.
I fail to understand why this makes so much to you, when you have already admitted that the Nazareth-Bethlehem story is likely a hoax, made to fit an OT prophecy that does not exist. Dark speculates that this could be the house that Jesus lived in when there is not a shred of evidence that that is true......not a shred!......but, it is good for tourism! Is it true? I don't know, but more important, THEY DON'T KNOW EITHER! so why speculate? Pottery shards that COULD BE FROM THE TIME.......COULD BE, but also could be earlier or later, so why speculate? Because it is good for tourism and a $60 million Nazareth Village, that is why!
