"The guy is an idiot." - and you're qualifications for determining that are...what, exactly? You read wikipedia a few times? Bart Ehrman's a distinguished historian (James A. Gray Distinguished Professor) at North Carolina and got his Ph.D studying under the extremely influential Greek textual critic Bruce Metzger.
We all have things we'd rather not pay taxes for, but we all have to contribute. Some people don't drive, yet pay for roads and bridges. It's the cost of a decently run society, hopefully.
calling you one what?
That doesn't seem to me like the best way to think about belief. Belief tends to be an either-or proposition. People believe something, or they don't. The strength or weakness of evidence is always relative to the strength or weakness of the counter-evidence. Evidence cannot be dismissed simply by being arbitrarily designated as "weak." To dismiss a claim based on evidence, however weak, one must have stronger counter-evidence.
You do bring up a good point - these programs (and every program) needs to be re-evaluated and adjusted regularly.
And the remarkable thing is how few of the neo-atheists ever think to ask - so why DO we have such an intense sense of morality? The OT, though it disturbs us, explains who we are as emotional beings, while Darwin entirely fails to do so.
Canada IS a security threat to the USA because the stupid asshole liberals are letting EVERYONE ON EARTH enter Canada without permission or question.
I am from a family of redheads, I totally understand lol.
Democrats have been crapping their pants ever since Trump decimated Hildabeast but no one noticed because of the DemocratDependsArmy in Congress.
How much is the churches' fault and how much the education ?
It is my understanding that there are 41,000 or more different standard Christian Theological points of view from the modern age. Where to begin?
Right. Becuase consensual love between two adults is the same as raping a child.
No they just started being rude before he cheated on me
FC. Children do not have well developed minds as their brain is not developed enough to critically reason or exercise good judgement. The children can generally ?believe? what they are told by presumptive authorities. Children are easily manipulated by their emotional needs, dependencies and do they often pretend to be what they are not. Belief is not really a attribute of practical or mature judgement but more a matter of acceptance, submission and compliance, which I again see as more of the realm of passionate emotions than seeking the dispassionate facts of knowledge.
Why so? You're for discriminating against a minority group of the population because of some innate quality they possess that makes them different than you, all because of your religious beliefs.
If he thought Zeus could help him, though. . . . .
you mean the tax cut that goes away in a few years (unlike the corporate ones) and will be gobbled up by the rise in gas and consumer goods prices due to the trade war?
So life is not natural at all, is what you're telling me. It's just different, but you can't say what physical aspects cause it to do what nothing else in the physical world could do.
I just googled this and found many. Here is one of the first google responses:
Lilith (/?l?l??/; Hebrew: ???????? Lili?) is a figure in Jewish mythology, developed earliest in the Babylonian Talmud (3rd to 5th centuries). Lilith is often envisioned as a dangerous demon of the night, who is sexually wanton, and who steals babies in the darkness.The character is generally thought to derive in part from a historically far earlier class of female demons (lilitu) in ancient Mesopotamian religion, found in cuneiform texts of Sumer, the Akkadian Empire, Assyria, and Babylonia.
until you realize it.. you will be so mad at yourself, that you won't have anyone else to blame butt U! :)
I dunno, Kate's too smiley all the time, storm's coming...
