Does objective morality inevitably lead to immorality, since it cannot evolve?
I think the incredible frequency of the occurrence of pedophilia within the RCC and the systematic coverups that followed, does mean you can tar the entire organization, but you are right about not all priests. It is an organizational issue and the entire organization needs to be investigated and arrests made at every level, including the Pope and past living Pope's, that are found to be guilty. I am a realist though, and I know that won't happen.
Here, I'll commit to conclusion. I would say as written, the Exodus is 100 percent fantasy.
Agreed. If you are having more than you can support it is irresponsible.
What gave you the idea that I wasn't on board with evolution? It works just fine with a monist metaphysics.
The anthem is a personal part of every American's lives. Why are we creating a televised entertainment spectacle of it by broadcasting people's behavior?
Weed makes me horny; especially the medicinal stuff.
Thank you so much, Ronald, for your insights. Im really thrilled to have people of all races, share their stories here. At your age, youve probably see alot more than most of us here have ever had to face. Can I ask you a question? How do you react when people say awful things to you? Do you get upset? Angry? Embarrassed? Or do you just walk away? Are you ever tempted to give them a piece of your mind? ???????
Thanks for your thoughts.
Not me, not yet. I like to wait till a series is over or almost so I can binge watch it till the end. This one is on my list.
please, tell me where my comment indicates faith?
You've missed with your assumptions so many times, that it's strange you would expect me to take your unrequested counselling seriously. No, I don't have any personal feelings to Muhammad. There were many brutal warlords in human history, some much worse than him. At least he didn't introduce human sacrifices to Allah. But you are ignoring the fact that Muhammad is key figure in Islam, and his words and deeds, together with Koran, form the basis of Sharia.
the first colonist came upon the shores of what they call North America others followed, glorified scientific achievements pale when you view the history and nature of dominant societies. I think about it in the short and long term and all the variables present.
so we should accuse trump of being anti-american and bully his wife over her appearance and speech, i mean, fair is fair, right?
Hugs and endeavor to endure the morning!
Can't read that well , can ya Sparky?
What bible are you reading?
Want to what's "Wrong -- morally wrong"? YOU, a heterosexual, trying to *tell me* why I'm a homosexual. THAT is wrong -- morally wrong. You have exactly ZERO CLUE.
I'm a relaxed agnostic, who feels that neither the theists nor atheists have provided convincing arguments for their cases. I plan to keep looking, and don't really expect to find any solid data until I enter the next plane of existence -- if such exists.
As Kierkegaard said God has no need to prove he exists.
After he cleaned he was supposed to hover just above the floor and not get DNA on anything.
nah. Now you are trying to change the subject. As I recall you brought up Hell, not I.
And they do.
No, they never come up with any solutions - only problems. And the answer to all of them is more government.
I hope you reconsider leaving.
The topic was Fundamentalist Christian vs Fundamentalist Muslims.
How on earth do you know what these women would do if men were afraid of them sexually harassing them?
The source of the problem will then be people who own guns. You can't take away the people until it's too late......so, take away guns.
I'm arguing that the legislature has no business being involved in this.
