We know that brain damage like that which occurs in dementia and Alzheimers results in a loss of personality, memory, soul if you like, then death as the other functions stop. It's like the person you knew has disappeared. Why all the stuff about universes? It's nonsense man.
1. If we are to have separation of church and state, should high school science teachers be allowed to ridicule Christianity, for example, in class, or are they required to be neutral toward religion?
No. I oppose discrimination. I told you I would not be a customer of that business.
No, if you want to preach galation in your home you can. If you want to go out in the street and preach it. Then yes that is hate speech.
I love your avi btw
Right. Many Christians have made some fairly vain doctrines their priority. I didn?t return to Christianity like my ancestors practiced. I returned through modern society?s lenses. And the teachings of Jesus are clear, and they are different in emphasis than most Church doctrines. Christian Science has a doctrine reflecting the experience of a woman, Mary Baker Eddy, with a powerful tradition that is fairly easily shared and that is linked to healing through God and God?s loving presence and providence, for example.
Thank you. I'm foreign. I don't know how the language works 100%.
Let me start with a point that probably about 95% of the people I know are not religious. They may believe in some kind of God but they don't go to church and they never talk about God or religion. It is probably closer to 99%. They drink, do drugs, they like sex, and porn, they cuss, and they do all things that are not religious. I can tell you that they don't like homosexuals and many don't like abortion unless it is one of their accidents. Has nothing to do with religion.
1. No, not necessarily encouraged, since that suggests that there's something wrong with not circumcising. There are demonstrable health benefits to getting the procedure and people should be made aware of them, but ultimately it should be the parent's choice. It would be comparable to suggesting that all women should get mastectomies just because it would greatly reduce the incidents of breast cancer.
There's a world of difference. One is verified and reproducible in a lab and the other isn't.
The 2 largest religions in the world teach children that they may be tortured for an eternity if they do not follow the rules of their specific gods.
I promise, you don?t ever walk funny. You?ll just sit funny. :)
That "legacy of slavery" is bogus.
God's gonna be pissed at you. Better watch it.
You?re being silly.
