People enhanced by AI that alters how they view the world or "lies" are no more human than the programming they accept.
Im sure from your Christian privilege point of view its all about you and your christianist cultists.
Which is a good reason for atheist outrage.
Of course evolution is not a religion but many theists like to link evolution to the people who are unbelievers and they like to tell us that athiests worship science and evolution . So the two are inevitably linked in the mind of a theist.
You are dating yourself? How's that going for you? ;-)
As I said to Andy: I'll post an OP tonight. I'm keen for someone to lay-out the hypothetical.
Yes, people pay taxes. But the best welfare is with the private sector. Government welfare is destructive and malevolent.
Google it. I'm sure it's on Utube.
God has enemies? If he failed in teaching the proper way of thinking to his creations, how the latter became his enemies? Can you consider the ants as your enemies? You the highly educated person, how can you consider something inferior as your enemy if you failed in educating or guiding them? Unless you gave them "free will", and in this case they are not your enemy, but "free thinking and acting individuals" as you wanted them to be. And you call this deity omniscient, omnipotent etc etc?
YES. RL Stine and the Babysitters Club books lol.
My expectations for this November are realistic. I expect a net gain for the left, but nothing like a "wave".
Please, check your own link before you embarrass yourself further. :-) And it did not cross my mind to check hundreds of years ago .... I had in mind what has become main problem in last decade or max two. In nearly all you have IS (of course it did not exist 200 years ago) and Al-Quada. Muslim are also GLOBAL terrorists, whole world is their "playground". Many others are targeted in single state, never self exploding.
" I, Donald J Trump, pardon myself for money laundering."
Boom! Well said,
Dakota: so fine a name for a state, the Republicans decided they should have two!
It's still Separating babies from desperate mothers over a misdemeanor charge then holding the babies as ransom against the parent?s right to due process.
And my SO makes me almost faint by just meeting my eyes... ??????
So I'm clearer with Question 1. There's no doubt the "Generation 1" crew of about 600 would understand the predicament, and that the 'Noble Lie' was just that. It would be foolish to think people who had come from earth wouldn't remember earth, and wouldn't understand what had been lost, and why sacrificing freedom is important.
How can you make claims without the fundamental middle ground being explored. It shows a lack of respect for the reasoning and perspectives involved.
What specifically do you believe it says?
If you insist that there is more to this world than you can prove just to make yourself or other's feel better then yes.
Hey... I wouldn't be so quick to call out the JWs if I wasn't ready to have someone throw it back in my face.
Sorry the point went over your head.
In the opinion of a fallible and very limited human? Probably not.
If you were born in the middle east, you would be just as fervently Muslim then as you are now fervently Christian. You wouldn't dream of changing your beliefs just as you don't dream of changing your beliefs now.
I agree with most of your comment. One thing i would question (and you're certainly not the only one that feels this way) is that these inner city schools are 'the worst'.
Koran, Hadith, Sira, tafsir. You quoted one of the sources yourself, but you seem to unable to understand it, unless you deny it intentionally. So, really, you didn't know that another name for jihad is striving is Allah's way?
No, they don't all have a flood story. China has three local flood stories that are cited as local floods.
Since you're not a "bible-hugging American" you can't disrespect Melania then.
Steve: this is the Principle of payment, retribution or redemption for Israel. Adam was the First death: all the Law of Israel dealt from that moment on. Abraham had already started to tithe his 10 % of everything to Melchizedek, although the Law had not been given. The same thing is attached to the payment for a life lost.
