True...I think he may be tactically trying to take increasing power incrementally, while strategically pursing a course of "divide and conquer." Pretty transparent.
You may want a ganache. ;-)
Genesis spells out "metaphor", not physical history.
because he was seen alive after the "execution"
Different type of service, different laws apply. Emergency rooms, if they desire accreditation, are already required to provide services to ANYONE requesting it, by law.
"1. Do you agree with a ban on circumcising boys, which is important to both Jews and Muslims? Should we do that in the US?"
The bible that was written by and edited by king James? Why should I use that one?
How it looked or when you received yours?
I did not miss the point at all. We do not want diamonds to change because the are already the result of change. However, that is really not true either because we DO want them to change. We do not want them to sit there unmined in their raw form do we?
Why would I want to be anywhere near your god?
I think this may be a gender thing. Makes me wonder why when there were more legit men only spaces it became such a big deal? Sounds like a double standard.
Atheism is not a thing that can be believed.
yeah. Im going to get some lunch
why the need for criticism? I tried answering the question to the best of my ability. The answer is honest
One cannot achieve 100% certainty merely through "reflection".
VJ, welcome back.
If 'we' see the difference between God and humans 'being' then the wisdom is not observed, however when 'we' see the similarities between God and it's creations, wisdom begins to become evident.
Golden state did it again
Is that what you do when you party.
you can point to the different translations as a way of 'justification', but its pretty clear.
Sadly, I suspect you're right. I think more people have horror stories than people who grew up in a family feeling safe and deeply loved. Early child development is so critical, it's not surprising this world is such a mess. Growing up in fear of the people who are supposed to love us creates wounds and handicaps we carry for a lifetime.
people can have 2 passports
we like private sector jobs, not ones that are created by bureuacrats and funded by taxpayers
Another day and i see the shit show and mudslinging has started early ...wonder who the instigator this time is ?????
?Nobody cares.? You?ve formed a group that you and everyone else is in, except me. It?s great that you can speak for all those people.
I got interested in Mormonism and read pretty much everything I could get my hands on, on things Mormon, and after reading the Book of Mormon, The Book of Abraham, Doctrines and Covenants, much of The Journal of Discourses, "No Man Knows My History" (senior moment I can't remember the name of the woman who wrote that) and a lot more, all I can say, is that anyone who can believe that nonsense is completely brainless . I read the actual history of the church also, The Haun's Mill Massacre, Mormons being on the wrong end of a "shoot on sight" order given by Governor Boggs, the Kirtland Safety Society and Joseph Smith being tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail, the Mountain Meadows Massacre, the destruction of the Navoo Expositer by Smith's militia, the gunfight and death of Joseph Smith at the Carthage Jail, the Handcart Immigration to Salt Lake. Joseph Smith really liked women and young girls, married children as young as 14, married women who were already married and whose husbands had been sent of missions by Joseph, frequented a cat house on a regular basis! What a load of crap!
The theme I keep hearing chanted in unison by all the Jesus mythicists on this forum. "I don't care, I don't care, I don't care!" If you don't care, why are you debating it?
Well that was not my comment. I think you got commentors mixed up.
I would hope so, but the fact remains that as long as emotional children who are not capable of reason, depend on their presumptive authorities and of inculcated into simply believing what and as they are told, they will be misled by the the cunning. Children always are capable of believing in the fantasies as long as they are capable of pretending to be what they know they are not,
They have disarmed themselves if that is the case...
So, re-written 7 times, but always in the same language...?
