Or the underlying cause- the Brazilification of America needs to be addressed.

Just #3. Most people believers or non believers live their lives with nuance and do not follow the bible or any holy test rigidly. Yes on forums like this they may defend one side or the other but in their actual lives it is more in the middle. I know of no one (there may be someone) that is advocating for a return to biblical times because there is a direct link to god or people were closer to the divine.
I have read your posts regarding obvious economic fairness. I have explained my disagreement with you on many topics.
Actually, when a
That is a false statement. Perhaps you mean that the majority of scholars "whose opinion you know," say that. For you obviously do not personally know every scholar, nor do you know the opinion of every scholar. There are likely many more scholars whom you do not even know exist; and, it is possible that they have a different opinion than the one you promote.
Our primary goal is not to stop unwanted pregnancies and STDs, but to create virtuous and holy persons, who will also have enough self-control to avoid pregnancy if it be prudent.
Another Monday morning, and another reminder of how glad I got the hell out of Kalifornia a quarter century ago!
My current gyn is female. I've had at least four different gyno's in my life and all of them have told me there is nothing they can do, and that they won't take it out. It's always "Just try this pill and see how it goes."
There is proof, endless proof. But for me to put it out on a chat like this would be foolish. If your mind is already made up, there is nothing I can say, no matter how blatantly obvious it is, that will convince you otherwise. So, the only conclusion to come to is this: you've already proven (in your own mind) that God doesn't or cant exist. So now, how about trying to prove (to yourself) that God does exist. Take 1 year and go on an honest pursuit of Truth. Sincerely pray and continually ask for revelation. Tell "God" that you really want to know if He's real, AND MEAN IT. If you have sincerely done it (prayed, gone to church, read the Bible, etc...)for 1 year and are still convinced, then I would say you have earned the right to proclaim there is no God.
The discussion surrounds what God is supposed to have done and why He is supposed to have done it. If the whole thing is a myth, then why are we even bothering to talk about it? It seems rather irrational.
Totally agree. Thank you for your thoughts. ???????
And sometimes stinks with a capital P-U!
thank you gorgeous, this is not harassment:) Just happy to see you today!
Tendencies are probabilities; pretty much like chance, mostly or likely to be so. The problem is how can those behavioral processes be correct if the data is presumed, remember there is no available data in the beginning.

Your reputation precedes you.
Only in the religious sense.
A discussion, sure. Although probably a waste of time, because again, nobody knows for sure. The rest is just chest beating.
Sad but true.
Let me ask your question do you believe that a land animal can become a whale?
Not to mention that his link is dead and brings up no information at all.
Belief in a god is a big thing for people, as well as some objective set of values. Ultimately, most people don't care that how lightning works has been answered without god, that isn't really the main reason people are religious.
Not the Canadian government: the law societies of Ontario and British Columbia.
I think my wife is on the way, the job is pretty chill.
Christianity doesn't need to create strawman arguments because atheism base their beliefs that everything came into exists out of nothing. One can't be more stupid that than that.
