Joel---Even a fleeting analysis reveals that the dregs of humanity or the most inferior human beings constitute the religious types everywhere.

HughBe--- While I understand your opinion I would not call people DREGS or INFERIOR purely because they are Religious and are typically LOWER in intelligence than the group that they belong to e.g. RACIAL or NATIONAL.

I see Judaism as an example of a religion that certainly supports the point on intelligence and whose pharaohs as a group display dreggish behaviour e.g. lies, deception and dishonesty.

Having said all of that, please tell me which of the categories below you would place the belief in a Supreme Being.

1. Journalism
2. Law
3.Medicine
4. Accounting
5. Lauguages
6. Maths
7. Religion.

Question, do YOU believe in a Supreme force or being?

The White House Says It Had No
Idea The DOJ Seized The AP’s
Phone Records

May 14, 2013
The White House claims to have had no idea
that the Department of Justice seized the
Associated Press’ phone records in what the
news organization’s top executives called a
“massive and unprecedented intrusion.”
“Other than press reports, we have no
knowledge of any attempt by the Justice
Department to seek phone records of the
AP,” White House Press Secretary Jay
Carney told reporters in New York Monday
night.
“We are not involved in decisions made in
connection with criminal investigations, as
those matters are handled independently by
the Justice Department. Any questions about
an ongoing criminal investigation should be
directed to the Department of Justice.”
Carney’s comments came just hours after
the AP broke the news that the DOJ had
seized two months of phone records from its
reporters and editors in April and May of
2012. According to the AP, the DOJ has
refused to say why it is investigating the
news organization, but the news company
believes that it has to do with a May 7 story
about a foiled terrorist plot in Yemen.

Legal taxation doesn't require a warrant. It's already been spelled out in the tax code.
You really didn't know that?
And evidently, if you're a right-wing group, you'll get even more special attention!
:))
Really?
So a code passed by a politician supercedes the "supreme law of the land"?

Do you see how that defies logic?

Something about a church to which I don't belong telling me what to do?? Probably not binding....what do you think?
A group of people I use church because it's close to a governing body in fact in Darien "residents" did just that, paid taxes to the church.

A group of your neighbors get together and decide that you owe them money, is that legitimate to you?
You will pay it because it has already been decided that you reside in their district.

The "group of people" to which you refer could be the American people as represented by their duly elected government, correct?
Are you an American citizen?
Say good-bye to your flat screen.
Of perhaps you'd rather live in Iran?
If I am not an American Citizen the law doesn't apply?

All they are is groups of people.
So you are drawing some kind of distinction between a group of people and "duly elected representatives".

"....As a result, it is quite evident that while increased levels of CO2 and heat can increase the rate of photosynthesis, most noticeably seen in C3 plants; however, the beneficial effects are only
temporary, and photosynthetic acclimation will occur. Eventually, the quality of crops will
drastically diminish, and will harm all plants. This is why our world’s agriculture is at risk with
the rate of CO2 doubling in the next century because elevated effects will harm plants’ ability to grow and survive, simply because plants are not able to withstand such extreme CO2 and heat
factors (Kirkham, 2011)....
...C3 and C4 plants each individually respond differently to an elevated level of CO2. The vast
majority of the world’s plants are C3 plants and their cells are not completely saturated in CO2
(Smith, 2012)....
....Therefore, at the levels where carbon dioxide assimilation occurs in C3 plants, 95% of the planet’s plants, they will no longer be able
to thrive (Sherwood, 2012). This will lead to an inhibited rate in photosynthesis and oxygen
emissions from the vast majority of the world’s plants.....
....Because wild vegetation has not been
specially bred and altered to use carbon dioxide to add to its fruits, wild plants will be seen to
cover more area and be overall healthier to the increased global carbon dioxide.

Are you happy to be living here? Would you rather live somewhere else? Just curious. You sound disgruntled.(Like a postal employee...)

Do you not believe in elections? Democracy?

Belonging to any religion is voluntary as far as I know - agreed. Same with tithing. Not so with taxes. Agreed.

Same with having auto insurance if you drive. This is fair, moral, ethical in my opinion.

Trends. Look at the trajectory in the article I posted. Its buffered with estimates of statistical certainty.(Dont you hate when life isnt black or white?)

You know, the article that you still refuse to read and therefore have an intelligent conversation about?

I am still waiting to conduct an intelligent conversation. Just throwing random sound bites gleaned from alternative media does not equal intelligent conversation.

Ahh the political organization known as new Hampshire does not require insurance.

I am very happy here in my voluntary society, but as always there are those that want to be left alone and those that don't leave you alone.

When was the last time anyone voted on having a government or not?
