Let me ask you something, is there something degrading about picking beans?
Am I less of a person for doing so?
Do I deserve less respect because I pick beans?
only if you make that special type of coffee FR loves - the one that mixes with poop

personally, I have no gripe with picking beans. Dont forget - my first name is Del Goya

Not all religions are averse to information. Mine surely isnt. Hence the billions of commentary on the primary text, and the ever evolving body of religous law that incorporates new developments in science and technology.
Also, as per the "underwear" argument - the claim that special clothes separates and enforces the cult from the mainstream - that is not always true either. In my own religion, the choice to dress differently is often an elective decision, and sometimes it has more to do with expression of faith than a mechanism of group comformity - for example there are three billion types of skull caps - to accomadate personal taste and personal expression.
But you would agree that certain (major) religions ARE adverse to information that they deem would undermine their teachings?

Surely, every religion is different, so painting them all with a single broad-brush would not be fair. But I think the article does correctly reflect a large chunk of them (particularly Christianity and Islam).

Absolutely. There are certain religions. That article was broad brush. Its the fundie strain of any religion.

<quoted text>
Since I see no credible evidence for the existence of a god, it would be foolish of me or you to speculate as to his attributes....
I agree with you :)
Before I was presented my proff, and how "HE " changed me, then I didn't have anything to go on, but what others would say.
I remember how my wife was for all the years I knew her. She was not perfect, but mighty close. She got on her knees everynight and prayed before bed. She would try to get me to read her the bible. I would always say (Jesus wept), and that was that.
She had such contentment, that at one point, I wanted what she had, and thought "I " would be a christian. It didn't last till the water got hot. Lol
I still remember one Sun, about 12:30 .
I heard the downstairs door shut. She was comming home from church -I was waking up from a hangover.
Her mom had came over, and went with her to church, and came home with her. I'll never forget hearing her mom say (praise Jesus, I'm so glad I came over to go to church with you baby. I could really feel the spirit of the Lord move in that place, but her next sentence, she talked about how she was going to stop by a "visit " an old "friend ",before she went home to her third husband. She said I know what he wants, and I know it ain't right, but he does give me money, and the sex is good. I heard alittle mumbling, and could tell my wife was telling her she shouldn't do it. So she left. I remember sitting up in bed, thinking "angry like ",that there is No God, and I cannot believe my sweet wife is tied up in all this crap!
I also watched others who claimed to be christians lke a hawk. I would make mental notes of everytime they screwed up. Some not so much, others were worse the I was.
So I fully understand how you don't know me, from adam, and you don't know how I was very angry inside, and felt like life had kicked me in the teeth. How I would use Gods name in vain, and very often.
All of that went away that night. I can still physicaly, and mentaly do all the bad stuff I did before, but deep down I have no desire to do anything wrong, and when I do I hate it with a passion.
The bible explains what happened to me, and where I am now.
As far as, if God was real -why is the world such a wreck? Why do bad, horrible things happen to "good " people?
There are many questions that are had to answer, but how can God create man with free will, and yet jump in like super man, everytime sonething bad happens?
Why did He set satan to rule over this world?
Why why why?
God can be and is God.
I know many don't like that answer, and want to build their own god, but what would they build? They would build a god, that allows "them " to drive 100 mph, but punish others if the get over 55.
YOU say to God -show me, and I'll believe.
GOD says -believe and I will show you.
No matter how you wish to label the origins of life, evolution, or creation, it all takes faith, becouse we never seen anything evolve from one thing into a completly different thing.
I was so stuborn and dumb on it, that God woke me up. Lol
Yet He still let me choose which way to go.

An alternate theory opposite the governments theory is not crazy if it is based on facts.
And most things people with average intelligence could figure out if they were able to look at things objectively.

No need to lash out at me just because you are uneducated regarding the finest coffees

http://most-expensive.net/coffee-in-world

The most expensive coffee in the world does not hail from Jamaica or Hawaii, but instead from Indonesia.

Kopi Luwak the most expensive coffee in the world does exist, and those who drink the expensive coffee insist that it is made from coffee beans eaten, partly digested and then excreted by the Common palm civet, a weasel-like animal.

explain your words. "only if you make that special type of coffee FR loves - the one that MIXES with poop"

Again take your medication and explain your words i.e.
"FR loves - the one that MIXES with poop"

The lashing out that you speak of is a reflection that you are delusional and are in need of your medication urgently and of course your words that need explaining also underscores the need.

It turns out that someone has already coined this term
http://www.nuvali.ph/about-us/evoliving/
EVOLIVING [é-vo-li-ving] is the vision of sustainability, the key to an improved quality of life that is distinctly NUVALI. Beginning with a revolution in our way of thinking, this vision is not just for today but for the years to come—a forward-looking mindset that embraces sustainability towards shaping our future.
NUVALI Evoliving
It all begins with a revolution in our way of thinking, a vision not just for today but for the years to come. A forward-looking mindset that embraces sustainability as key towards shaping our future. Nurturing the welfare of our environment is steadfastly linked to assuring a solid future for generations to come. Ultimately, it’s about what really matters to us—clean, fresh air, abundant greenery, safety and security, education, a good job, sound health. NUVALI seamlessly integrates family, work, and leisure, generating a diversity of spaces, activities, and communities—allowing people the means to live their full potential. A vibrant landscape springs forth, freely shared by all.
Converging nature, people, and technology in NUVALI, sustainability cultivates the dynamic relationship among the ecological, social, and economic webs of life.
Evoliving is the seamless weaving of life, nature and technology to secure a vibrant future, an observance of responsibility, harmony and diversity, enabling people to live the way they choose.
Reads like the unattainable goals the WHO once set.
Everybody is entitled but it remains elusive.
