Considering that 15% of the world?s population is Muslim, that makes sense.
God cannot repeal logic or the laws of nature.
It actually says to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the Earth.
Vast parts of the bible have been disproven.
Wages were stagnant for 8 years during Obama they are NOW increasing at 2.7% the fastest pace in 10 years. Every time tax rates are lowered REVENUE INCREASES.
It is a metaphor - but for what exactly?
I stumbled upon this gem which is from 2016 so can't talk about newer data but explains very well why I'm sceptic about your claim. Any new theory about dark energy must not only show new data but also explain the old data and why a >5 Sigma confidence was still wrong.
For whatever it's worth. Jehovah's Witnesses don't patronize the "cross" to start with.
1) Hard to say, I think most of us 'like' our beliefs and are biased towards them. I'm not very willing to reconsider some things, so I supposed I'm "mostly closed-minded" towards those.
Refusing to believe the claim true or false, of course.
Great point! When tempted to become furious about being rejected, it's very helpful to realize you have rejected people or will reject people during your life.
You might want her to. :)
So you hate gays as well. Pretty sad.
Unless you are very lucky and don't get hit : - )
what I am seeing is about 10% at 300 CE. It was minor, the empire made it important
Hum...after admitting to Lying he will be exonerated for Lying? Now that will be a cute trick.
Is it schools that have become too structured or the same parents that are referenced above? I ask that because I have heard parents in my neighborhood say the same thing - but these kids get recess and lunch recess daily and PE another 2 days a week - which is the same as what I got in the early 70's. School is still 6 5 hours long. Not much has changed but higher expectations in the curriculum. However, I walked home at 2:30 pm and was playing with my neighborhood buddies by 3:00. 2 hours of free play until dinner which was followed by 2 more hours of free play before time to start relaxing. Now, it's daycare from 3:00 pm-5:00 pm followed by dinner on the way to dance, soccer, gymnastics, swimming....and then double that if you have siblings. Kids today spend no time on unstructured play at home so the parents are outsourcing it to the schools.
Theism is the learned belief system. You don't come up with it on your own. That's why there are so many gods and so many religion in addition to so many beliefs systems. If it were naturally formed then there would only be one god and one religion. That proves that it is not natural when born.
really? You think this is even up for debate.
Bogged down as in, ??nothing is getting done with the republicans in the majority?? bog down??
Yeah because building things and repairing infrastructure is not important at all...
That pretty much sums it up.
Wrong. None of this addressed the god question. The default position on existence is not to believe X exist until it is shown that X can exist. As for Faith the 9/11 attackers had faith and caused massive harm, the Pope had faith in Bishop Borros and caused massive harm. Maybe a little skepticism is what is needed.
Depends who you view as the snake oil salesman. To some, he?s a con artist, to other?s he?s exactly what they need.
Prove its true then. Prove any of it. I'm an Ordained Minister and spent a great many years studying the bible and theology. Forgive me if that pursuit lead me to no longer be convinced. I have no reason to believe there is a god... And I'm sorry to have to point this out to you- but if you cant show god is true or that god exists... then you don't know it either.
Lol, the white house chose to put that banner up, in fact they were the ones that made it, so they have nobody to blame but themselves.
I live in a country where most of it's citizens volunteered for servitude.
Then your god is a pathetic monster.
The monster under the bed.
Yeah, all of the originals are housed together with the original manuscript of Plato's "Republic", the original manuscript of Josephus' "Antiquities of the Jews", the original manuscript of Tacitus' "Annals of Rome", and the original manuscript of Suetonius' "Lives of the Twelve Caesars". I'm assuming you know exactly where that is, right?
no pews? that is nuts.
You really are not understanding what im pointing to.
