It was traumatic looking at the damage. I trying to count my blessings
Fair point about Wycliffe, Coverdale, and Tyndale. All were abused by the Church but not burnt alive.
As long as you're not at the very top of the controller layer, or a rich owner, you'll be fcked too. The power of the "middle class" depends on the power of labour - because its existence is all about controlling and managing and betraying it.
Sexual orientation is innate and immutable. It is a biological multivariate based in genetics, epigenetics, hormonal baths in utero, neuronal plasticity, neuroanatomy, etc.
So? You'll be dead.
Ha ha ha!!!
I am answering the questions from only my POV, because I can not possibly answer for 'the overwhelming number of people on earth that are religious'
So what IS the difference? Both of us are the "bag of chemicals". Your bag is the same as the atheist bag. You don't have any real difference from the atheist. There are theists and atheists that have no problem killing other human beings. So what is the difference in value? Atheists behave in the same manner as Christians, want pretty much the same things from their lives, are as good and charitable as are theists. One thing the atheist doesn't come in with is the prejudices and discriminations that the theist has.
That one is a "zip". Right over my head. I am not very bright. You have to break it down a bit for me.
Lol... the VA is horrible. I don't know what could save them. Just met the new director the other day.
Genetics is proving it...
I am thoroughly convinced that there are people with a permanent stick up their ass, and those people somehow make it through life become successful and write asinine laws.
Ah, the wonderfulness of the unintended Swype typo. :) I'm sitting here trying to figure out what I sparkle with, but the options aren't really 'family forum friendly,' so I'll refrain.
Here's a strange concept...do your own research for once.
Sorry TJ. You?ve just shown why they talk about Kohlberg?s Psychological Development of Morality, along with Piaget?s Stages of Intellectual Development. Somewhere in that scheme, you demonstrate the deficit of conceptual thinking. Don?t you worry your little head none. My little ole conceptual thought makes it clear why Hitchens? criticisms justifiably had no effect. Maybe one day you?ll try some Zen and you can use this koan- "A Hospital is not a House for the Dying". Hold those two concepts in your head at once, and surely satori will hit you like a fish flopping in your face.
Ohhh...I don't have a waffle iron. I prefer pancakes anyway. ; )
Well, for sure Jesus is most beneficial, positive, ... unfortunately that does not make him any more real as all others. Also what you find positive, liking, ... should not be the correct answer to REAL god, it is more like cherry picking like I will believe in god that suits me best.
Awesome Faith Reasoner!
WTF are those things?
I don't have to "look it up." I was present for my son's circumcision.
You obviously haven't seen some of the bridges in Oklahoma!
Yes, personal religious and political differences should never keep family and friends apart.
No, your road is KNOWN, not created. God isn't a time machine. You can't go through life w/o making a choice. Don't try to figure this out. Many have gotten wrapped around an axle over the "predestination" issue.
I am more curious as to what he can confess to emomistress that he cant/wont with his wife.
That would suck.
