But Columbine etc. did also happen because the US has always had some kind of popularity-culture. Just look at all those teenie movies, where the outcast kid is a poor slob until he/she does something special and is accepted in the cool kids circles. The (supposed) ugly girl who makes herself up and at the end gets the handsome quarterback guy or the shy guy who earns the respect of the other guys by doing something very cool/heroic. And by suggesting that being the coolest guy or most beloved/attractive girl in class (or even school) is the ultimate goal, Hollywood has just paved the way to social-acceptance struggle.
You followed me onto an unrelated forum to post a reply? Not cool. Since you are back here on religion I will answer you. If you follow me around again, I will block you. I am not the one who closed the thread, and when it is closed it is done.
I consider belief in something on faith to be stupid. That encapsulates pretty much all religions.
Did I say they were? They're in the finals AGAIN which means they're a good team. Good enough to win at least one game for sure. No excuses.
this should be an interesting explanation for that comment.. wil look forward to it.
No, theology is very clearly the study of a God, and the nature of God. A type of philosophy, but a distinct strain (like the study of ethics).
I curse like a sailor every day. LOL
You must be an avid listener then.
They weren't though.
According to various verses it is a disc with corners, set upon pillars.
Especially considering that the lifespans listed in Genesis are considered to be exaggerated by an order of magnitude.
The beautiful people
In the 18th and 19th centuries, the states of North Africa (collectively called the Barbary States) ? Algiers, Morrocco, Tunis, and Tripoli ? would raid European shipping in the Mediterranean Sea and parts of the Atlantic. To prevent their commercial ships and sailors from being seized, the states of Europe would pay what was essentially protection money to the rulers of the Barbary coast. In 1783, when the American colonies gained their independence, Great Britain stopped paying the protection money for American shipping, for obvious reasons.
Get your eyes check, the "Trump Family Syndicate?" specialized for several generations in paying porn starlets.
People. many of them poor or old, aren't paying for any of their healthcare.
A jealous, slavery-condoning, misogynistic, murdering, tyrannical con artist. You can't get behind that??
No, they don't. They are the ruling party in Gaza, not the West Bank.
I KNEW IT!!!!
I think it may be more of a 'chronic' condition
Yep. There are claims anyway.
= "I don't know, I have no competence whatsoever, but I blindly believe that these are all conspiracies."
It can mean G- D, it can mean showing respect. The Creator the Sprit can be within.The G- D within ? The Spirit within ?
I would agree except that every time he lowers the bar and crosses the line there's no outcry from the GOP, just silence (except for a couple of decent voices). And we keep going down and down and getting worse and worse, and... nada.
Not many, most (of the extremists that kill people) prefer hanging people, dragging them behind cars, or shooting people.
Jesus the Christ is known as the son of Man. Thus, we are all son's of the living Universal God. Tis true, however, that the Jesus story can be found in antiquity throughout the world in various cultures.
Nope. It really isn't evidence. It's called "evidence" in the sense that we can use it in court, but you can't demonstrate it, can't repeat it, can't show it to anyone.
No more than there is virtue of being hetero.
Secular argument (not "atheist") for morality is very simple and totally objective. Morality is a measurement of how much harm you inflict or help you give to other people. Moral judgement comes from the victims of the harm you cause. Causing harm is immoral. Not causing harm is ammoral (unless you enhance freedom for others by doing nothing) and helping others is moral. Harm is measureable and objective. How you feel about the harm is subjective but it doesn't matter how people feel about it. You just need to avoid causing objective harm.
Y'ALL MUST AGREE WITH ME AND SAY I'M RIGHT OTHERWISE I'M LEAVING!!!
Nothing makes me an authority on Christians. That?s the point. There is no authority on becoming a Christian. Anyone and everyone can be a Christian if that?s what they want to identify themselves as. Regardless of what the NT says or doesn?t say.
The anthem is hyperbole and lies? What an obnoxious statement.
It was not inborn, I chose my own morality
