The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
LMAO. The bible is the strongest argument anyone has ever presented for atheism. My primary school age children were able to see through the BS in their Christian school. The only hope you have is if parents are reinforcing the brainwashing and fear at home.

The bible is a powerful tool for evil. It justifies murder, rape, abduction, genocide, all in the name of its evil god.

Be careful what you promote Duquette.
On? On what? You have me what? You cited an event, not an idea. Do you know the difference?

Oh and the point was..it seems the land of Egypt might've been more "watered out", once upon a time....
Interesting stuff.
Well trying actually voicing that point next time.
"Watered out"? Is that a scientific term?
So what if the land is now under water?
Did you have a point to that possibility or are we to try and read your mind?
I could make some guesses, but I am not up for games. Just make a full point if you wish for some discussion on it. Otherwise you are just babbling.

The knowledge would be in the interest of discussing an "idea". But of course you guys don't want to go there. The idea is about the effectiveness of religions version of forgiveness.
Now back to telling us about this "event" you cannot even articulate a point about.

I don't believe in shallow, lemming herd pack voting with blinders on, based upon nothing but a same shallow label.
I find that type of thing to be quite ignorant.
Again, most republicans "feel" they are non partisan.
You can claim to be superman, but your words show you are no superman, or superwoman.
You are a Christian Right winger.

Deal with THAT.
Who would have guessed you stick with the god your parents told you is real?
Most people do stick with the same god. 80% do stick with the same general religion as their parents.
It is as if they were brainwashing within the family. Coincidence?

There are a myriad of chunky rings available which can be substituted for dreadlock beads or sleeves. You can also try making a sleeve, using wire and fixing / sticking a decorative stone on the wire. You can also try buying a few ring skeletons, which you can experiment with using hand-painted polymer / ceramic tablets, or colored glass beads, pebbles, shells, etc. Look for rings which have an antique, or bizarre appeal, and are vibrant. Ring designs which include the peace sign, yin-yang, religious symbols, or Rastafarian colors, can be found in wide varieties. If you have some experience with wielding and jewelry-making, you may try making these ring sleeves from scratch and give each sleeve a unique design and feature!

Here is an idea, stop making absolute statements that are so easily shown as nonsense.
It's all in the intentions in my opinion, and it then it still boils down to the same stuff-good versus bad.
Knowledge/lust to use for the good, or knowledge to use immorally?

Here's another idea, how about you stuff your little ego trip up your nostrils, and pretend it matters to anyone else.

The vain pettiness of it is redundant, empty and boring, and since there's nothing worthwhile exuding from it....well the words are just kind of worthless then.

That's because I wasn't "telling" you "about some science". I listed a daily line up of shows on a SCIENCE channel.

And your comment was pretty pathetic dude.

Please explain why you feel that non believers would consider rapist, molesters, killers, A-ok?
Lets see, Incest is weaved throughout the bible, Killings is commonplace in the bible, and all performed by men of God. I'll bet you'll post about these things being A-ok!
"all performed by men of God"?
You must be reading something different!

I wonder if the 9/11 hijackers also thought their actions were harmless. Note how YaA thinks the innocent dead go straight to heaven, it stands to reason the terrorists think as he does.
Pretty simple stuff, but I note you ignore these points every time I make them.
YaA is not intentionally HURTING other people with his beliefs.

Terrorists HURT other people.

You don't want to seem to want to grasp the concept of that.

Why? Doesn't it fit wit your agenda? Maybe YOU need to rethink your own points then. It's Never right to just terrorize other people. EVER.

Careful your christian is showing. Well you did follow gods law and not get involved with knowledge.
I will ask yet another question you will not answer.
When you committed your sin or sins and asked for forgiveness from your invisible friend did you also ask for forgiveness from the real person you did wrong?
If you'd read the Bible...
We are supposed to ask for forgiveness from those we've wronged...
IF at all possible!

<quoted text>The main point is, all you have are claims of an afterlife. No different than nutty terrorists claims.
Not that I belief your faith is harmless(as I have demonstrated countless times) but even if it were harmless, it is no more logical than any other mythological faith based religions.
WTF are you babbling on about, sounding like an abject idiot?

Living my life as justly while here on Earth NOW, is what I focus on.

I know NOTHING , N-O-T-H-I-N-G about what does or doesn't go on in an afterlife! It is absolutely N-O motivational factor in how I live my life. N-O-N-E whatsoever.

You might want to step away from that plate full of ignorance there dude, you're really grasping at spoonfuls of ignorance, hate and bigotry, and they seem to be having a very toxic effect on you.

See, you even got that backwards.

Not surprisingly though, as you had no clue as to what was being held out for discussion, you just opportunisTically used it just to run your mouth-to insult others beliefs.

You're a toad Duquette, a toad troll.

Some people are very forgiving, others not quite as easily and others not at all.

I personally don't believe in dark age vengence, as it just continues its cycle, over and over, mired by it's own poisons of it's own doings.

I do however believe that peoples own rotteness comes back upon them by way of karma.
