So facts and evidence are not in your wheelhouse, understood.
So, you don't care if a religion murders to establish itself as long as they do it quickly. See, i think once a criminal enterprise always a criminal enterprise
= Smack! = No! That's a bad Starvin' Marvin!
"What kind of bias did you see in a simple retelling of the Koran content?"
You want to talk about African children and the Catholic church?
So you lost your faith in seminary? What year was that and are you open to new evidence?
I define in terms of level of sanity and reason.
A shame the transcription in the video was soooo far off though.
I find the above graphic thrilling: it's so odd to see how removed from each other some similar plants are, and how closely related others are.
You entered without reading like Yogurt fly !
I wish there was less of a stigma surrounding men seeking mental health services and I wish more single/divorced men had better support systems.
Yes, there are atrocities in the Christian Bible. However, these atrocities serve to make a point: without God, man is helpless to do more than destroy. Do you understand the distinction between the Old and New Testament? The New Testament brings a new promise which essentially serves as the basis for Christianity. Christians are supposed to follow the New Testament teachings, and nowhere in that compilation does it encourage violence. The Qu'ran? Yeah, Mohammed kind of eggs on his followers towards jihad, and the eradication of infidels, to which he is also guilty. Not to mention he marries a literal child.
If we could magically make all guns disappear, would the number of suicides decrease? Probably not.
As I see it, the story of the Bible is fundamentally
Intelligent, Patriotic American citizens are anxiously awaiting Mueller's Evidence, and we will party in the streets when the Orange Fraud is led out of the White House to Prison.
You only used argumentum ad verecundiam.
Not me. I was pleasantly surprised to find out he knew that the event happened at all. Trump?s stock rose for me. (Negligibly.)
Socialism is evil. Theres a wealth of evidence to prove that.
seems you are trolling today? do you have a point?
Who was Jesus? Jesus wasn?t the Messiah given (Luke 1:32) ?the throne of his father David? because Jesus never sat or David?s throne or had a human father which was essential in patrilineal Judaism. Mary?s genealogy?s irrelevant. John the Baptist, who baptized (Mark 1:4) ?for the remission of sins? baptized Jesus for the remission of Jesus? sins. After his baptism, you can believe Satan showed Jesus (Matthew 4:8) all the kingdoms of the world from a mountaintop, possible because the earth was flat, or accept that Jesus became one of disciples until John's imprisonment (Mark 1 14). Jesus held John in such high esteem Jesus said (Matthew 11:11) none born of woman (including Jesus) was greater than John. Jesus was an apocalypticist, like all New Testament writers, and believed the end of the world was imminent 2,000 years ago and said so repeatedly in Mark 9:1, Matthew 16:28, and Luke 9:27. Jesus was also a magician who dazzled illiterate post-Bronze Age audiences by exorcising imaginary demons from the possessed. The twenty references in Matthew to the "kingdom of god/heaven" are references to the earthly kingdom the Son of Man was going to establish 2,000 years ago but didn't. OOPS. Jesus wasn't omniscient (Mark 5:30,?Who touched me??); omnipotent (Mark 6:5,?(Jesus) could?do no mighty work.?); perfect (Jesus believed in the evil eye (Mark 7:20-22)); truthful (Jesus told believers in Mark 16:17-18 and John 14:12 they would be able to perform miracles but they can?t); or the eternal god because Jesus died. Jesus condoned slavery, believed he was a prophet (Mark 6:4, Luke 4:24,) and came only for "the lost sheep of the house of Israel" (Matthew 10:5-6, 15:24) because righteous Jews were already saved and gentiles were heathen. Jesus identified four paths to eternal life not requiring belief in Jesus? divinity like Mark 10:17-25 and Luke 18:19-25. For example in Matthew 19:16-19, Jesus claims a Jew could obtain eternal life if he shall ?honor thy father and thy mother?love thy neighbor as thyself? and not ?murder?commit adultery?steal?bear false witness.? Jesus was crucified for sedition against the Roman Empire and his body left on the cross to rot since there were no exceptions in Israel to this practice. His death on the cross for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:28) was unnecessary because he had already said he forgave sins in Matthew 9:6, Luke 5:20, and Mark 2:5.
lol. I wasn't sure whether to laugh or say "seek help." So I went with both to be on the safe side. /grin
Your statement also basically goes, that we atheists, or agnostics, MUST have religions forced upon us by the religious as there is no freedom from religion.
Discriminate is action. Only some racist discrimination is illegal -- that affecting a place of employment, or a service. One can be discriminatory and refuse to patronize places of business that are owned by or employ a race (or religion, or ethnicity), and this is not illegal. Racism is a mindset, and viewpoint, and is not illegal under any circumstances.
Plus morning breath, and bad hair, and sleep gunk in your eyes, and I?ll take late night over morning. ??
Actually you are having a hard time comprehending.
