Again, you have claimed that reparative therapy works. Now post the citations to the peer-reviewed scientific research published in scientific refereed journals that documents the efficacy of reparative therapy. Either post these citations, or admit you're lying.
Both are certainly possibilities.
So how is it you are able to determine that when the bible says Jesus rose after 3 days, that means ~72 hours, but when god created the world in 6 days, it isn't literal days? How can you reconcile believing the bible which has been taken to say the world is ~6,000 years old with a belief that the earth is not a young earth, if it isn't arbitrarily?
Serial killers in the U.S. by highest number of victims : Gary Ridgeway, heterosexual, 49-90 victims; Ted Bundy, heterosexual, 36 victims; John Wayne Gacy, homosexual, 33 victims; Dean Corll, homosexual, 28 victims; Juan Corona, bisexual, 25 victims; Ronald Dominique, homosexual, 23 victims; Patrick Kearney, homosexual 21-43 victims; William Bonin, homosexual, 21-36 victims; Larry Eyler, homosexual, 19-23 victims; Paul John Knowles, heterosexual, 18-25 victims. That's more thn half that are homosexual, yet gays make up only ten percent of the population ? (And I'm gay and not religious).
Less harmful than a delusion, in most cases.
Golly. Those unfair scientists don't want superstition to play a role in their research.
Do they have to be virgins in 2018? Low mileage close enough?
That might be better asked of an in-field physicist on Stack Exchange, but as they can't seem to agree with one another on the answer, I'll give it a go..
It?s both actually. It?s relative to us as humans and just how insignificant we are in the grand scheme. It?s possible that a god created everything, but it wasn?t for us.
Wiser, more capable, older, yes. All these things and more.
No, really. That's magic incantations which are made up bollocks.
"and their disclosing my name, gender identity and personal information to various media outlets"
Sorry, but being a Systems Administrator pays much better - and computers don't shoot at you.
Right. I, too, am riddle with guilt. ??
I love where your mind went.
The rules don't apply equally. US citizens can fly a drone in Iraq from their computer in the US and kill people. It is murder in Iraq. It is not considered murder here. Subjective.
We're old school here.. we have to vibe with the person first.
It's unicorn wednesday not leprechaun monday....:)
Ya, its a stupid obsession. Instead of doing some good for the country, dude is obsessed with vengeance against anyone who has ever failed to genuflect deep enough in his presence.
Ah, so what are you doing then?
"You can't have both.".... LOL.... That's Silly Christian Thinking.... You're not Qualified to say and Neither is your Bible... Your Opinion does not = Truth
Are any of those people liberals? Serious question, because I've lost count of the number of times you've falsely told me I advocate violence, even with me explicitly telling you the opposite.
Ah, put that one down to "idiom", eh? Good idea, nod nod, wink wink.
Thanks for that. Today I watched an interesting debate between Bart Ehrman and William Lane Craig on the historicity of the resurrection where Ehrman supported your comment that the resurrection is not accessible to historians because it is a theological question. They both put up good cases.
I have a chemistry/biochemistry degree and work as an AD chemist at one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world.
Then what you presume to challenge are the existence of religious exemptions and this is where you and I will agree (for once). I dont believe they do any good for the religious. However, they do exist and since they exist people can fight to obtain those exemptions. Deal with it.
And yet, in the US we have many examples of Christian ideology and theology into our laws and other things. Examples are Christians pushing laws like DOMA or anti-abortion laws, or prayers in schools. Look at the current administration, surrounded by Evangelicals.
The only semi safe way to interact with strangers. Put on the bubble suit before leaving house, see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing. And of course no gestures or expressions.
Yes that?s true. It?s a matter of letter of the law. Just so long as you can say you?ve done it.
Jesus took on flesh to live among man & give His Father?s message
What is wrong?
Are you purposefully being dishonest??? Even the cite you link says you are wrong:
Explaining the implication of a creator requires no leap, Bernard :
?Cakes do NOT "play a part of an event."
Nope. Islamists use Islam to justify their terrorist or political agendas. Most Muslims just want to live their lives like everyone else.
