The great flood is widespread among many cultures seen in the Mesopotamian flood stories, the Puranas, Deucalion in Greek mythology, the Genesis flood narrative, and in the lore of the K'iche' and Maya peoples of Central America, the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa tribe of Native Americans in North America, and the Muisca people in South America.
In Hindu mythology, texts such as the Satapatha Brahmana mention the puranic story of a great flood where the Matsya Avatar of Vishnu warns the first man, Manu, of the impending flood, and also advises him to build a giant boat.
You did research on Horus. Look this up too.
so let's say there was a flood.

who's responsible for the worldwide genocide that followed? your God?

It also seems interesting to me that God may have tried to give us a clue about how to love and forgive each other more than once throughout ancient history.
Was Horus's message to ancient Egyptians about love and forgiveness? Just curious. Because that's pretty important if we want to believe God is about love and forgiveness.
The Roman Empire had become so cruel and immoral, perhaps Jesus may have been sent at the right time and his message and claims the most believable.
Life's mysteries seem neverending...but just points to our own morality as being finite and our self-importance rather insignificant. It would seem.
Jesus himself never ever claimed to be the son of any god, that would have been heretical to everything he ever preached. and it was heretical to those who carried his ministry on after he was executed and left to die on the bone pile of Golgotha, namely his brother James...

it was Paul, a man who never ever met Jesus who started that myth preaching to gentiles. james and the other apostles left even sent missionaries to the congregations paul was preaching to to set them straight on this matter...

again, it is amazing how little you cult freaks know about your own cult myths....

This claim has been made before, but no real evidence has been presented. So it remains as conjecture until then.

Kathleen Sebelius, i.e. the government, is the final arbiter of every aspect of health care. If costs become prohibitive, they already are, she has the authority to regulate everything that impacts health care costs. It's the EPA all over again. They have gained the power of legislation by decree, bypassing Congress and the will of the People. O-care has the same imperial powers.
You said it controlled every aspect. Now you back pedal & say maybe?

Sebelius has the power she has because Congress gave it to her in the ACA.

The Supreme Court said the EPA can regulate greenhouse gases.

You & this "bypass Congress" crap is just that crap. The President has certain powers.

Since your precious Republicans don't give a sh*t about anything except masturbating their dumbass base, someone has to do something.

Quit your f*cking whining & tell your whiney party to put this country first for a change.

Man's craving for power stood behind the name of Christianity in the past but that's not - nor ever has been - the true message. The fruits of their spirit identifies them.
But think we've talked about this enough.
Let's stick to the reasons we're on this forum and answer this question. Are you denying Obama's poll numbers are dropping dramatically?

States had established churches until the 1820s, Mass into 1830s.

It's a matter of opinion. To extend a hand to the religious among us, makes good sense. If they are avoided or the subject equivocated, that candidate will be dead at the starting line. We don't have to win Democrats, we have to motivate conservatives.

A little perspective...Obama's polling is on Mount Everest compared to GOP Congress, or the GOP in general. Check it out for a reality check.

"Maybe"? I said no such thing. Should I have said, "'When' costs become prohibitive"?
Obamacare gave her the power. Democrats shoved Obamacare on America, despite overwhelming opposition by Republicans and Americans as a whole. Your eagerness to bow to the Gods Of Government is disgusting. "Someone had to do something." ?? Are you shitting me? Who might that be, you and the liberal elites? Kiss my ass.

Yes,

Where does it ask you on a resume how you voted during an election.....

Universities are supposed to be diverse...that's the scientific process...
If Universities attract only like minded thinking people where is the diversity?

so...

If a scientist/researcher is worried that the topics he/she writes on will affect FUTURE employment we have a HUGE diversity problem..

And we know what Progressives do when they have a DIVERSITY problem and it involves Conservatives...

Don't you?
