I gather that would be quite taxing for your 3 year intellect.
Science does not go on Proverbs 14:12's common sense it uses observation and testing. Evolution is a fact (things change over time) the ToE is the explanation of said observation. Common descent is the conclusion drawn from the evidence found so far. It is 90% accepted worldwide, this is what is called "common sense". If you do not agree there is a built in method to change it. Present your evidence.
I don't like your comment about if you're not willing to do your job, you should find another one.
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.
I read a lot of fiction.
They won't feature a comment like that.
Yeah, I agree, but we don't know they don't have it. Just because they have a nice house, plane etc...doesnt mean a thing, unless you are seriously claiming to know his heart. It says to give it all up, but that's within. Love the world, lose it etc.
I have anxiety as well and agree minimal conflict is better
"hundreds or thousands"... where was your feigning outrage when obamacare put "hundreds" of businesses out of business? oh that's right, your Messiah could do no wrong....
But your church is the only one that really teaches true Christianity.
You arent a god.
And in German mythology, hell was ice cold.
Again, the point of my post went sailing right over your head. Sounds about right.
That's true. Unless they are bogged down with another Benghazi hearing.
Sure, I agree with pretty much everything you wrote there. Commonness is indeed not rightness. I mention "common beliefs" because the argument in this OP is that religious experiences should be disregarded because such experiences lead to beliefs that are inconsistent amongst individuals, cultures, etc. My point is that there are beliefs associated with these experiences that are fairly common/consistent.
Likewise, I can respect what you're saying as well. And your own philosophy and approach in reducing the impact of words stereotypically designed to degrade. And I think it's a legitimate way people do try to lessen the impact of certain words. Because I know not everyone uses those words with the same connotation and that different life experiences do bring us to different points in our own personal journeys. But then I think about other words and there is no amount of claiming that will ever make them okay. And I wonder why it should be the same for words stereotypically designed to degrade women. Like I said, I have mixed feelings.
So you do exactly what I expected, ignore the question and rant on your own quest.
Lived in cali for a while, they are happy to tell you what they pound up their asses.
You can state what the Bible teaches all damn day if you want. However when you use your book to make personal judgements about me, and use your Bible to justify discrimination, or imposing your religious rules on me, then we have a problem.
Well, as an atheist, I am on the side of allowing tax exemption on this one.
The flood for instance. There should be evidence. There isn't. Therefore it didn't happen.
You started with a conclusion, which is illogical. Where is your evidence for such a sweeping statement? "It has not been proven the Bible either has or can be disproven, because
You comment is the least intelligent thing I?ve read here all month.
I forgot that lot! Nothing like fundamentalist religion to stir up hatred.
