Actually this is a very late addition to the bible, having occurred after the mid fourth century production of the Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus, neither of which contains this pericope which appears to have been written to show that the so-called "Jesus" (not actually a name) supported forgiveness, which, as a "zealot for the law" (See Matt 5 and 15), he most certainly did not.
No, the initial reports were wrong. It's the Queen Mary tiara. She carried forget me nots in her bouquet which was Diana's fave flower.
I know very well about state of Islam in former USSR republics, I am from there as well. Although Islam was being destroyed by Communists for 70 years, like other religions, and many people who identify as Muslims are mainly secular, it doesn't mean the doctrine itself has changed. And for the record, Islam is not based on Koran alone, but Koran AND Sunna, Muhammad's words and deeds.
*GLARE* What the hell?
I have no money to pay anyone to do anything.
What studies have you done in which there are 600 people left on earth, to make the conclusion that "non religious people are rather unique in thier disinterest in having enough kids to grow in population"
People often feel "experts" don't know what they are talking about. And sometimes, they are correct. But how many people do you know who ignore the experts? Doc says don't smoke, don't eat as much red meat, or watch the salt and it gets ignored. Instructions say to use this product a certain way, and it's ignored. Caution signs warn of upcoming danger or just your average speed limit signs are bypassed. Having rules and knowing the right way of a thing is never a guarantee that it will be followed. Blaming the rules or the experts or God is a cop-out and rationalization to make people in the wrong feel better about their wrong choices.
You just want to hide from your earlier comment, that all.
Of course one of the values of knowledge is the ability to control things. That is practical. Those who 'believe' also have benefit of that practical knowledge. But existentially, the value of knowledge is that you don't have to search for answers any more. That is satisfaction. Satisfaction is the goal of knowledge. My question isn't so "sad" now, is it?
Good for you.....so when did you become a non-christian?
If you are set up to believe that everything is going to come your way, just because of who you are, when it doesn't, there is going to be a reaction.
When I (and others) refer to dudebros, we are specifically referring to the Red Pill gang, and any other man that feels inadequate when a woman makes more than him.
I don't believe he was disrespecting the continuum that led to his own intelligence.
Barring cleanliness and safety issues, why the f/// should anyone get to decide what someone else's hair gets to be like?
I'm not making a claim!
A literal transliteration of the Hebrew (lo l??ho?w?ris) is "not - do drive out."
Ok so you are officially ignorant.
That's why I like him.
I was answering the questions, not responding to the scale. They are not compatible.
For what cause?
It kinda looked like spock was having a sexual fantasy involving satan... who then manifested and gave him a strangest provocative look....
Of course you are on Medicare. Why else would you be ranting about subsidized insurance?
catholics and protestants once wanted to exterminate or dominate one another. just a decade ago in n. ireland.
Yeah, and his screen name was "Epicurean-something." He believed the fairytale of evolution. Incomprehensible chaos is exactly what you have when you refuse believe what God has said.
