I believe we have lawmakers in Washington DC and that some of them are sentient and intelligent.HughBe---Oh, so you believe in a Sentient, Intelligent, Lawmaker etc., very good.
Former--Not in the religious sense.
HughBe-- In what sense do you believe it?
So you can't really talk to dead people or imaginary beings (such as god) then - correct?1. It is impossible to speak to a PERSON if there is no PERSON.
2. You are alive now. If I close my eyes etc. YOU will not know the conversation that I had in my mind BUT you still exist. So don't expect Ben F and company to respond to you. Get it?
In your own mind, of course you can do or be whatever you want.
No. What do you mean by spititual existence?Now, Ben F and others don't have a physical existence anymore BUT they have a SPIRITUAL existence. Get It?
I have heard these terms before but have never seen evidence, much like Santa Claus.
Does all those only occur "in your mind" like certain of your "Conversations"?
I realize in history that Jews were enslaved. Is this what you mean?HughBe--- You don't hear many things. The Jewish people are NOT Frijoles people or that of the overlords. They are mere members of that RACE. The enslavement of the Jewish people by their overlords is a matter of FACT whether or not YOU or anyone else likes it. There is no disrespect to call it for what it is and if it is considered disrespectful by some to speak TRUTH then to HELL with them.
What is a Jewish "overlord"? I don't know this term.
If I believed everyone else's religious beliefs, then my beliefs would not be my own, would they?HughBe-- Plus I accept the account of the Jewish people. THINK before you open your mouth again.
Former--You don't care about the source of your information.
HughBe--- Are you really casting ASPERSIONS on the Jewish people? That is certainly very good and RESPECTFUL of you.
We all are all free to worship (or not) as we choose.
I do not see this as disrespectful.
However you words are disrespectful: "slaves" "overlords" "folly"
Certainly you see the difference, if you are not being obtuse.
Is this another example of you showing respect?Former--So again I ask, are all things man-made useless or just his religion?
HughBe-- A lot of religious teachings are pure BS.
How about YOUR religion is BS?! What do you think of that?
This sort of talk really does nothing to advance the conversation, does it?
I also don't hold a view as to what you had for breakfast today.HughBe--- what CS is that? Again, do you hold a view as to how man came into existence?
Former--3rd time - NO, I not.
Unknown and likely unknowable - get it?
You hadn't qualified your statement in this way before.Former--You accept the idea of judging people's superiority (or lack therof) by physical traits not under their control.
HughBe--- Read with understanding. I shall NOW say that PHYSICAL TRAITS can make people superior over others in doing some things e.g. playing basketball.
That was sloppy thinking and sloppy expression.
Combination of things.Why are some people SMARTER than others? Is it PHYSICAL traits?
But it came to be for me, howver it happened.
Racism is real. No argument here.Former--You have that in common with the Nazis.
HughBe-- Your country has that in common with the Nazis where whites to a large extent and for centuries felt themselves BETTER than blacks.
