Gotcha.
I call hypocrite when you are contradicting something you said. Of course you do not have enough sense to compute this, and just think I am saying it for no reason.
Try not being such a dick.
Common sense is a misnomer.

Hypocrite seems so appropriate when you contradict what you say. Can you think of a better word? Sorry I do not have sentence long name calling tangents like yourself that have no actual application to the subject.

So it's my parents fault? Maybe if the one true church had an ounce of evidence I would know they are not all false.
Maybe if Christians that claim they are correct were not giant assholes like yourself, I would think their was something good about Christianity. But your sad example of a human only ensures me that Christianity is false. Maybe try not being a hypocrite for one second and show yourself as an example. So far you fail, curious fails, Sista fails. You are just jerks.

News channels are news channels-reporting all the same stuff-at least to those with a half a brain cell that can recognize the difference between news and opinion.
Just some of them have more pleasant all duh worlds a stage atmospheres and stuff.
10 in 3 ...taking guesstimates for a box of donuts LOL.
Over a decade? You mean he changed his affiliation? Likely due to being called out for lying about it.
Bill's opinion is a republican opinion. He patted Bush on the back for every move he made. He pushed the agenda for war in Iraq. He pushed the agenda for the patriot act.
At least Msnbc people complain Obama does not repeal it. Msnbc is liberal, but they don't cover for Obama on every move as fix did for Bush.

The reason I call evolution a religion is because it takes a lot more FAITH to believe it with no evidence to support it than it does to believe in creation!
That is your uneducated opinion, and you have the right to that opinion. But the courts disagree. Evolution is evidence based. It is science.
Now you can send your kids to private schools that will deny them the teaching of what science has found if you wish. This sort of indoctrination works. It sure works in the Middle East.

Oooooooooooooooohhhh....kind of like...oh...say... just because something touts/claims some "labelduhm label" doesn't mean squat diddly??????? Which is kind of the point of being a reg'd Independent for SOME anyway...as that "empty rhetoric" of the partisan, empty suit, politicians's, doesn't mean squat diddly --Especially dark age, STUPID "straight ticket" type voting based on nothing but dark age, STUPID, "straight ticket" labelDUHM label voting.
Because that kind of ignorance is just DUH..M. Duhm, Duhm, Duhm.
I have to give him credit, he sticks more to addressing "issues", rather than just lame brainedly attacking individuals per say, which I find to be rather NON-partisan.
Just stick to the damn issues.
And I might even read his book too, it sounds like it has some potential for being an interesting, insightful read...and reading IS Allowed here-because this is AMERICA-NOT CommieTic dictatorship land.
Funny, I noted Bill constantly diverts and uses personal attacks to do so. I have not watched him much lately. Has he changed? I guess now that Bush is out of power, he might actually talk directly about issues, instead of attacking the messengers.

Kind of like saying-I don't like you, for good reason to me.
Don't like it-TOO BAD.
Now that you know that-
Stay the flock away from my posts and don't be stalking and harrassing.
In others words, let me talk and do not respond, just like Bill talking over his liberal guests.
Sorry but it does not work that way. Free speech. Why do you hate out freedoms?

Jehovah's Witnesses publish a book titled:
Life—How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation?
Millions of people today believe in evolution. Other millions believe in creation. Still others are uncertain what to believe. This book is for all such people. It presents a thoroughly researched examination of how life got here—and what this means for the future.
Mr. "Spaceship" you would do well to obtain a free copy of this book, read it with an open mind, consider the information presented there and then make up your mind as to what really is a lie!
You can try going on line to www.jw.org/publications and see if the book is available on line-if not you can obtain a copy from any one of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Thanks for your consideration.
Thanks for your kindly reply, rare these days of debating when you have a pitchfork_tic trolling others when debating. That being said you can see how evidence shows the dispute and lies others have bought into this thread by believing lies taught by others who have been indoctrinated with what they believe is the truth.

I don't blame you for not debating the other religious ones as you can see how they embrace paganism like a drug addict. So you can see how twist and turns of religious thinking can seem logical and true. Once you jump in it's very difficult to get out of a cult. It takes a open mind.

Anyone reading the "Life" book without the benefit of some background knowledge will be left with the seriously mistaken impression that the theory of evolution is in serious trouble in the scientific community, an idea which the authors try to support with quotes which are deliberately taken out of context.

Example appears on page 143 when zoologist Richard Lewontin is quoted as saying that organisms "appear to have been carefully and artfully designed" and that this is "the chief evidence of a Supreme Designer."

But Lewontin himself vigorously complained about this out-of-context quotation, explaining that the phrases were lifted from an article which was explaining that such "perfections" of design are often illusory and mistaken.

JW's call evolution a lie, and they proceed to claim that this is a lie created by Satan"

Life book says:
"We need to face the fact that the theory of evolution serves the purposes of Satan. "

I have to reject the book based on bias and misleading claims. Thanks for the recommendation I will pass.

Awakening of a Jehovah's Witness, by Diane Wilson.

For twenty-five years, Diane Wilson was an active member of the Watchtower Society. In the end, she was only able to finally leave after a great deal of difficulty and heartache. She recently published a book about both her experiences as a devout Jehovah's Witness and her experiences as a member of that organization who came to doubt its claims. She went through a very hard time, but perhaps those experiences will help others going through something similar.

One good reason why you should not forget to pray,

To all the people a long the way who hurt me, lied to me and about me,disappointed me,broke my heart..

Is this true or false?

Witness women who were disfellowshipped because they did not scream when a rapist attacked them. For much of its history the Society has had a doctrine that says if a woman is forcibly raped but doesn't scream,she hasn't been raped at all, but has committed fornication.

Known Fact might embarassed to give me a answer to my question. I found the information to save her from violating any rules that my cause her to be shunned by other JW members.

Watchtower 1964 January 15 pp.63-4 Questions from Readers:

"According to the Bible at Deuteronomy 22:23-27, an Israelite engaged girl threatened with rape was required to scream. What is the position of a Christian woman today if faced with a similar situation? Is she to scream even if an attacker threatens her life with a weapon?"-M. U., United States.

Watchtower response:

"Such Scriptural precedents are applicable to Christians, who are under command, "Flee from fornication." (1 Cor. 6:18) Thus if a Christian woman does not cry out and does not put forth every effort to flee, she would be viewed as consenting to the violation. "

Readers Question:

"But suppose the man had a weapon and threatened to kill the girl if she failed to lie down with him?"

Watchtower response:

"These scriptures do not weaken the argument or alter the situation by citing any circumstance that would justify her in not screaming. It plainly says she should scream; hence, oppose the attack regardless of the circumstances."

According to God's law an Israelite girl was under obligation to scream:

"In case there happened to be a virgin girl engaged to a man, and a man actually found her in the city and lay down with her, you must also bring them both out to the gate of that city and pelt them with stones, and they must die, the girl for the reason that she did not scream in the city, and the man for the reason that he humiliated the wife of his fellow man." If, however, the attack took place in a field and the woman screamed and thus tried to get away from the attacker, she was not to be stoned, since she was overpowered and there was no one to rescue her.-Deut. 22:23-27.
