she is in the minority of ALL vets... men and women!
I grew up with one parent. One very good parent, but life is hard for all of us. Nothing is as it should be. But the Author of the Bible promises that there will be no more death and decay;
Is there anyone that doesn't have Rudiger blocked? lol
We have been taken advantage of by our "allies' since the end of WW2! We, rebuilt their nations, spent $trillions defending them during the Cold War, and they don't even pay their fair share for NATO! They put tariffs on our goods while their governments subsidize their corporations. Those days are OVER!
If I look at the context of this "sudden new law" then I see Roam85 thinking I am "advertising". Nope. I saw Him struggling with wrong perspectives on the Bible.
What is the bias?
'Appeal to experience' is not a single unitary concept but a complex one which could include everything from standard experimental empiricism (which is by definition based on empirical experience/observation) to drug-induced hallucinations and much in between. Most knowledge claims are grounded in testimony or appeal to authority in any case (both in religion and other spheres such as current events, history and many others where we cannot directly experience the objects of cognition (e.g. the past or an event we cannot observe). The problem is not one of trusting experience or trusting alleged authorities, but rather determining *which* experiences and which alleged experts should be treated as reliable sources. Empiricism,among other things, tries to render observational experience a) systematic b) predictable and c) capable of being replicated by others. If we treat knowledge as hypotheses about what events will be observed/experienced under specified conditions (e.g. in a laboratory experiment) and our predictions pan out across multiple trials (i.e. we experience/observe the same results) than we have shown those experiences/observations to be capable of confirmation in public. They are still experiences, but they are not unique to individual subjects since they can be repeated (e.g. I experience burning when putting my hand into a flame, but so do others-- and in a way that can be easily demonstrated in public). So we *want* knowledge to be based on experience, but experience that has observable and predictable consequences which can be evaluated by multiple experiencers or observers.
"No such thing that tax cuts for the rich will trickle down."
Oh sensitive, hypocritical Smiley. How difficult it must be to willfully ignore reality.
Calm down! There are no grand inquisitors here. This thread is just about debating whether Jesus existed. Its a historical question.
I agree it shouldn't, but this is a real case in junior high school. I don't know the "why's" yet.
lol, that's where I was heading, too
The whole vicarious salvation through blood sacrifice is completely lost on me.
The reality check is that NAFTA hadn't actually become law yet, so Reagan's numbers are hard to actually compare with today.
We should have a new name for those: a Swypo?
Not as long as you post your pinchbeck philosophy.
no clue what that means
Depends on where you are.
" I have a notion that God hates unbelief more than anything else."
What else do they need? There's positive proof that love exists.
You've got us.
Not at anywhere close to the RATE that blacks kill each other.
We are here ''for'' the universe. We are the suffering leaders of this evolutionary process on Earth to keep the Earth (energetically) vital for as long as possible. We do/did this by surviving for as long as possible which is triggered by fear of death. From this we grew out to a human plague which, with all our survival mechanisms, make more and more heat in the atmosphere of the Earth.
