Shouldn't you ask "What is that all about?" BEFORE you deride her for it?
Thank you, WitchintheWoods, for not torturing us with page after page of cut and pastes from The Witchtower magazine.
You are quite welcome. I don't let anyone else do my thinking for me.
It's a rule I have...well, more of a guideline.
Ummm...no, it's definitely a rule.

Odd that he didn't ask you (ChromiuMan) what your name was "all about?"
I guess he can accept the "known fact" that you are made of chromium, but has a hard time with witches.

"Known fact?" Only to him.
The rest of us are a little more demanding of evidence for our "facts."

LOL! It took 5 minutes for a religie to plaster judgeits on post 94646 - a post that urges understanding before jumping to being judgmental and surrounded by posts about Xtian book-burn lists, bans and boycotts..

Matt. 7:1
Luke 6:37
James 1:26
James 4:11
Romans 2:1

1 Cor. 1:19 "For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."

Hypocrites, pretenders and CINOs.

At least I'm not a Witch in the Woods! What is that all about?
Of course you are not aWitchintheWoods. That is MY name.

If this is an example of your own words, as opposed to your cut and paste,
then I see why you don't communicate your own thoughts.
You aren't very good at it, are you?

If you ask nicely, I would tell you about myself and my name.
But quite honestly, we both realize it's a "known fact" that you don't really care.
You only want the chance to lecture people with your cut and paste... and I am sooooo not interested in the ravings of your cult.

What? I am aghast, sir! Would you dare to infer that good American Christians would even THINK about banning Little Red Riding Hood, Macbeth, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Slaughterhouse Five, A Christmas Carol, A Clockwork Orange, The Scarlet Letter, In Cold Blood, Catch-22, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Don Quixote, Leaves of Grass, The Lord of the Rings, Gone With the Wind, A Farewell To Arms, Animal Farm, The Grapes of Wrath,(Joyce's) Ulysses, Candide, Brave New World, The Catcher in the Rye, Uncle Tom's Cabin, The Crucible, Fahrenheit 451, Anne Frank, A Diary of a Young Girl, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, All Quiet on the Western Front,...?
What an excellent list. If only Christians would read more, they might find out what life is about....*sigh*

Global Flood? Ica stones? Really? You offer hoaxes and then you claim other people's "bias is showing?"
Assuming Noah started near Eden (which in itself is not far fetched) the flood waters would have had to reach a modest depth of 10,000 feet to cover the local mountains by 15 cubits and the ark would then have to float 700 miles north against the current established by the terrain to reach Mount Ararat.
The static rainfall (even with contributions of "founts of the deep") would have to have been over 10 feet of water PER HOUR.
Where is there any geologic evidence, either global or even local to Khuzestan for such an occurrence? NOWHERE. BECAUSE IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

Looks like somebody overwrote the original judgeits with better ones.:)
I couldn't register MirrorMan - it was already taken. Chromium is reflective, which I intended as a double entendre.

Also, the outermost layer of chromium is transparent.(Good for preserving that 'see yourself shine'- or rather "See how you are?" or "Good Gawd, look at yourself!")

Hoaxes? Like the Shroud of Turin, Noah's Ark found (over and over again), innumerable holy relics? I already have a clue that you're lacking a couple.

Didn't Happen...Could Not happen... Would require Magic to happen.... There was a Global Flood that started about 30,000 years ago and covered about 10% of the land , but took 1000's of years to do so... And No, even those lands and cities covered by the melt of the last Ice Age do not contaminate the dozens of dating methods we use to date stuff... Water Coverage could cause bad data with Carbon 14 decay dating which is only used to date back no more than 50,000 years at most and then is validated using other methods to assure accuracy ... It Cannot cause bad data in the assorted other isotope dating methods that can date back millions to billions of years...

I would add ", or Any Book for that matter. " to that quote... Consider all such claims with a skeptical mind and study the Evidence presented and all other evidence that can be studied then form your own conclusions based on verifiable, reproducible evidence, Never Believe......
Since you were not there...
I say... You do 'Believe' in something...
Since I 'Know' God is real, and ALL this junk didn't happen
by chance... You are Believing in something far fetched!

"christianmorals" Or christian morals definition is that they believe they will be punished if they do something that their ever watching god does not like.
So christians have morals as long as they are being watched. That is not moral it is obedient while under supervision.
Nothing "moral" about that
Where you good morally when sacrificing animals to jehovah? How about when killing children for jehovah?
Was it "good morals" when you murdered Doctors and employees at womens clinics?
The christian cult's idea of good morals is what ever they want to do and hurt whom ever they choose to hurt.
Hey, dont get mad at me, it is the ACTIONS of your cult that tell the truth. Get mad at your cult for being so hate filled and violent.

There is the ongoing debate... is drug abuse self medication of existing neurochemical imbalances? This opens the question, is religion a psychological self therapy for existing neurochemical imbalances?
Embracing the belief beyond all contrary physical evidence that the Earth is 6,000 years old, that all of the mountains under the entire heavens were covered to a depth of 15 cubits in a mere 960 hours, that a path through the Red Sea was opened specifically for a vagabond party of escapees, etc., etc., ad rabidus...
Its not hard to be "cleansed" of "sin" when half of your ganglia are scrambled.

The ignorant came up with the quip "Still going strong!" Two years and still just as clueless as day one.
Self deception is such a sad thing to watch.

My ipinion n the subject would be to offer the class, but leave it as smething that is optional, because if you try to force a belief on someone then not only does it push someone away from it, it also defeats the purpose of the whole belief, because according to it, it is supposed to be for those who desire to do so on their own free will. To force any religion, whether good or bad, is a mistake, but to try to force someone to not have the right to their own belief is just as bad
Yes...
It was/is optional/Elective!
Good reasons to make ALL schools Christian!

http://www.educationbug.org/a/public-school-v...

"because certain Christian schools may be known for high academic standards, a safe environment, and a disciplined student body, the Christian school may hold appeal for those who are not members of its faith community."
.
We hold to higher standards!
