No. They are NOT the same, and if GOD is an idiot, then you are worse because He is smarter than you.
I'd like to know where you found my photo????????????Today is that day, Melli!
The benefits, or disadvantage, of HS is in the family relationship. Parents are always cliquish and defensive, and HS are more than most. The problem of finding a parent group to work with and shared activities is no less difficult when homeschooling, but even more important. Find a HS group to work with and adapt to the degree needed. Can't do it alone. Figure out why people are like that in 30 years or so when yu are playing with your grandkids.
Culture. Religions are part of the culture of any people, but they are only a part. Rejecting God (and thus the dictates of religion) is not a rejection of the larger culture. Some sociologists argue it is not possible to reject culture broadly, since we are often not aware that our beliefs about what we should and should not do was absorbed from culture. If a woman is a "good girl" because her religion denounces promiscuity embracing atheism probably won't lead her to joining a swingers club since here in the USA the secular culture and most religious cultures agree more or less on promiscuity. If she is gay she will feel less constrained because the popular culture is more tolerant of homosexualty than religious groups.
False. God Himself has revealed it to us.
Thanks for taking the poll and publishing the results. A cursory judgment would be: I think that the poll pretty much reflects the kind of posts that this board typically hosts. Still, nice to see what the poll results were.
Honest research gets me nowhere near your god. Odd, huh?
Well see I have a little problem here. I am an anarchist so I don't like to see anyone get in another persons business. So you ask about praying for healing. Now the first thing I must say is that what they do isn't harmful to you. Now if you are looking out for the child I know many things that are harmful to children that have nothing to do with religion. Should you get involved? Well, that is a slippery slope. Who decides? What can be called harmful? People raise children in rat infested places with black mold and old lead paint. Do we get involved in that? It is harmful.
is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? WHO GETS TO DECIDE???
The fact that you don?t know who Bob Jones is tells me everything about your ignorance over Christian culpability for racism.
Boobs can't get pregnant.
I understand what you're saying. However, I've learned a lot on this site by paying attention to All points of view. I came here to discuss the issues and find out what others think of those issues. I have no desire to read nothing but echoes of my own thoughts - where's the fun in that?
Blaming the murder of millions on atheism is a red herring, because those murders weren't done in the name of atheism, but for suppression of dissidence and opposition.
Been thinking on it: in Matthew there are those two awful moments (Gethsemane, and on the cross) where... Jesus doesn't want to die. At those moments, divine or not, Jesus is just a man who has no interest in the sacrifice.
I agree with GHF. "Morals" as given by god, are not morals at all. They are commands. Much like when we command our dog to get off the couch. He does. Not because it is the 'moral' thing to do but because of fear
Let your feeble little mind think that it?s ok. I would be pissed off all the time if I thought like you too
Now what has the black peoples religion to do with them being refused because the owner have a religious reason to deny black people service?
I feel like you want me to deny these facts, but, you know, I agree?
And it's basic to this thread.
I don't understand why so many atheists need Jesus to not exist. Jesus being a historical figure that actually existed doesn't mean Christianity is true. It just means a guy lived 2000 years ago. It's up to the Christians to demonstrate that he was more than just a normal man.
and That's the trufff...
>>" militant GLBT activism is advocating that those who disagree with that should be silenced or, indeed, persecuted, like we have seen with bakers, florists and Bed& breakfast owners.'<<
yes but to prove your point, how did a^2 = a*b become a^2-b^2=a*b-b^2
Then they will qualify for more subsidies.
I never liked his music. He's feeding to those that do or who like that rhetoric.
That?s debatable but I?ll agree for the sake of argument.
Adam and Eve as two literal people DID exist, as did Noah and his children from whom we are all descendent.
You wish you had our good American drugs, lol.
Draymond is still playing hard defense.
What do you think the new synthesis is geh? Hgt etc is massive sequence replacing gene centric natural selection and gradualism.
Anybody want to bet these disgusting leftist Jew haters will keep their jobs at the dishonest NYT?
I did not assume. I spoke based on what was evident. As before, any argument will necessarily imply that the other person is either being illogical or is uninformed. Stating more explicitly what is already necessarily implied does not suddenly make it an
I know a few people who very much give a shit. I have a feeling that we disagree on what the kitchen table issues are
Shut yo mowf!
