I honestly believe that they might well be, one day!
Yeah.. Wow. Im sorry its so sad.
I grant that there is a POSSIBILITY that a creator exists, but there is currently zero verifiable evidence for such a claim. Thus I have ZERO surety for both 1 and 2.
Imagine Mary being a herion addicted prostitute, beaten up on a daily base by her pimp Jozef.
Not according to Wikipedia:
Mell is right, sorry.
Nope. This is the mentalitiy of the Babies of God. They believe and act like that and thus form different "churches". That is what you see in the World today. But that is the Babies of God.
Oxymoron. The universe cannot exist if not created.
Paul has 14 epistles attributes to him. There is some scholarship as to some being forged in his name as they do not match his writing style. But in any of them, forged or not, Paul never describes a conversion experience on the road to Damascus. ACTs describes the event some decades later. There is plenty of scholarship that shows ACTs is not a reliable historical document. In fact one can parallel both acts and Luke to Josephus writings. Just as one can parallel the gospel mark to the writings of homer(over 100 parallels). In fact that is what one would expect from writings of the first century. Because that is how people learned to write. Not the common folk of course, they were illiterate (upwards of 95%). But the wealthy and educated learned to write by creating stories utilizing literature they had access too.
So good - one can transcend rationality without losing any of it. It's definitely a great way to grow.
Seems you are just proving diogene right. You really don't know what evidence is.
Hard to understand something that doesn't exist, as proven by your repeated failure to describe it. It only exists in your fantasy world.
His vagina is bruised.
It would hardly be the first time Christianity took on a lot of pagan influence. Everything from Yule logs to Easter eggs to arguably even the concept of a dying and resurrecting God come from pagan influences. If having heavy pagan influences made a religion not Christianity then that applies to pretty much all modern Christianity.
Presidents ought to have the responsibility not to ask for more than necessary and to veto bills that contain overspending.
I'm not the one crying.
Niel degrasse tyson has a wonderful quote. I'll let you find it, it concerns the nature of skeptics and deniers in the face of evidence.
Not stubborn, but well-informed.
Hmm, the more I think about this the more I'm unsure. Plan B wouldn't be effective 6 weeks in, I think. I'll have to read up on this!
Yeah? You?ve never seen one of my comments, it appears. Keep reading.
Machinations!!! The Powers That Be had the big three Churchill, Stalin, and FDR betray Chaing at Yalta. Then had Truman deny the troops a victory in Korea.
Binders of women.
Yes, I'd agree the Bible is metaphor with
You said that, I didn't.
Another Idiot like Trump !
It is no different than the printer's liability for printing a customer's request. Not everyone had a printer on their desk 100 years ago. I am not deflecting anything. The internet is "the press" of the 21st century.
If you use window units, they have them with remotes now. : )
My wife's a Doctor. She says it's a baby at conception.
When someone makes a claim about a god that brings it into the material world then it certainly CAN be tested by science.
Your comrade's post is dreary and dull, yours is meaningless...
Still no substance.. You are full of counterclaims, but have no position yourself? It seems like you are on a mission to prove people wrong without knowing or trying to understand what is right yourself.
Amazing life changing subjective religious "born again" experiences are common to all religions. Therefore none of course should fool one into thinking that they have something special and unique as they cancel each other out.
I agree but that's why people distinguish truth with a T, and personal truth. A personal truth indicates a belief with great conviction, a hypothesis thought to be very likely true.
We talked about it....but I never asked or proposed to him...because I didn't want to "pressure" him into anything . 4 years in I said I was leaving because it appeared that he wasn't interested in taking it further . He freaked out and said he didn't know it mattered to me because I never mentioned it to him. I told him that I didn't want a pressured proposal. He thought I was good with the arrangement because I didn't pressure him.
