I didn't realize that when there isn't a draft men are still required to serve to be considered a good person. When did this start?
Only in the Teapublikins world can you attack someone for not doing something they weren't required to do and praise someone (Bush Jr) for not doing something (showing up to actually work in the national guard) they *are* required to do because they can get out of it because of who their family is.

The thing these freaking idiots don't understand is that all of these conservativefucks that they so endorse don't giveashit about them; they care only for their own bank accounts and the bank accounts of their corporate sponsors, yet they will still spew all of the vile BS that faux (i won't say "news" because they are anything BUT) tells them is true.

Possibly, possibly not.
I'm agnostic. Could be there is an afterlife (although I very much doubt it is what any religion made, controlled, and corrupted by man thinks it is)... could be there is nothing and you just die, without any spiritual consciousness to know whether you were right or wrong about your thoughts on the matter. I have no idea and don't pretend to know such things.
A fence straddler. One of those that says ... Not going to say there is a GOD and not going to say there isn't a GOD ... probably unknowable... Bleh!

I think it means that you respect out of fear, which is not really respect at all, and I cannot fathom why an Omnipotent being would need to garner my respect using fear.
Why do we apply such human egotistical frailty's on a creator, a God?

In that context ... "fear" .. means reverence.

Hey Sublime, I didn't know you were a bible thumper!
:-P
I respect other people's right to believe what they wish (was out to breakfast on a trip a few weeks ago and one of the guys asked to say a grace before we ate, which was fine with me ... I'm not militant about it), but if folks are going to spout off about how wise they are as believers or project an air of superiority for being "god fearing," I think it's fair game to respond.

YOU however are correct. It is a collection of writings from oral histories that were compiled around the 4th century into an acceptable version of an "official" bible, however the stories, rules, laws, etc are bronze/iron age, a time when people had no understanding (to speak of) of how the physical universe works. Plant a seed and it grows. Ok, easy enough, but they didn't understand how or why, it "just did." The "just did" mentality was applied to everything in their lives because they didn't know the stuff we know now.
You are exactly correct ... I don't even understand how anyone could say this is not true.

Glad you think so, but I am not. In this context, "fear" doesn't mean literal fear.

So the rest of your argument is bunk.

All organized religions prey on folks fear of eternal damnation, Race.

I refuse to believe a god would give me a brain that thinks critically and then punish me for using it and questioning whether folks with less wordly knowledge than today's average 3rd grader REALLY knew the key to the afterlife and whether it exists. Especially considering it is a fact that there are things in that book that we know for a fact are not true ... like the story of genesis.

However, men ages 18-25 still have to register for the draft or lose out on financial aid for college.

Hmmmmm...
mutt says fear = respect
you say fear = reverence....

Nope, I call that fear = fear and if they had meant "respect" or "reverence" they would have used those words instead (I believe they are used elsewhere in that book)

That threat of eternal damnation keeps people in line. Sometimes.

I do disagree with your assessment of Mimi but I am wondering -- what does "who can't keep a man" mean? I read that post of yours and all i can think is -- this is a guy who has never been married to my knowledge and is begging for dates.

And I might point out you have no idea what Mimi's personal relationships are like.

I had no clue about it until I was in college and guy friends talked about it. I have to assume that 18yo women going off to college have no idea how lucky they are, just this once, to not have a penis.

;)

(I think if men are drafted, women should be drafted.)
