If you had self-confidence, you wouldn't have to be a blowhard. When people brag about themselves - they are insecure. You are insecure.
I thrive from your attention. Don't flatter yourself. What are you doing here? Thought you were so busy saving lives. Guess that isn't true.
Never said I was clever. You did.
You are very disrespectful here, so I am sure you treat your patients poorly too. It's in your nature.
Try for one day to be pleasant.
Oh, and stop your lying.
I read this stupid Roe vs Wade and it doesn't make any sense.

AIDS coverage was piss-poor. Aside from the fact that it was always out-of-date by the time it got reported, there were such lovely errors as it being caused by amyl nitrate use, that you could get it from airborne particles, and that you couldn't transfer it unless there were visible symptoms.

You're ridiculously closed minded and absurdly arrogant. It's hardly worth debating anything with you.
You can not provide any evidence that the bible you worship is "the word of God".
Perhaps, but no one has ever provided any evidence that says its not.
One would think out of all those writers, over all those years, that there would be tons of stuff to your advantage, especially now that the world is so so smart.

God is real, and every knee shall bow one day.

As far as your other question, just goggle, or ask bitner, they have better sources :)

Education can be a great thing, but it is according to what you are being educated about.
Some "many " are ever learning, but never able to come to the "TRUTH"
A good education IS a great thing. That's why militant religionists have OPPOSED it, especially for girls and women.

In their tiny little minds, a good education is a threat to what they want everyone to BELIEVE. Unfortuntely, for you and the rest of the religious extremists, you can't force people to attend church or require public school students to attend "christian" bible study classes anymore. So people CAN get a good education, WITHOUT all the faith-based bull you want forced on them.

Mentally, these right-wing misogynist guys are stuck in the 19th century and can't seem to get past it. In his essay "The Subjection of Women," John Stuart Mill said this:

"The general opinion of men is supposed to be, that the natural vocation of a woman is that of a wife and mother. I say, is supposed to be, because, judging from acts -- from the whole of the present condition of society -- one might infer that their opinion was the direct contrary. They might be supposed to think that the alleged natural vocation of women was of all things the most repugnant to their nature; insomuch that if they are free to do anything else -- if any other means of living, or occupation of their time and faculties, is open, which has any chance of appearing desirable to them -- there will not be enough of them who will be willing to accept the condition said to be natural to them. If this is the real opinion of men in general, it would be well that it should be spoken out. I should like to hear somebody openly enunciating the doctrine (it is already implied in much that is written on the subject)-- "It is necessary to society that women should marry and produce children. They will not do so unless compelled. Therefore it is necessary to compel them."

**********

I think Mill's assessment was 100% accurate. I think that the male policy and law makers of the 18th and 19th centuries, in both church and state, DID believe that it was "necessary" (for THEM, of course) to compel women into being wives, mothers and NOTHING more.

To that end, girls received far less education than boys did, and they couldn't attend college. Women were barred from almost all the trades and professions that would allow them to live as financially independent single women. The few occupations that women COULD enter paid far less to women than to men doing the same job. And of course, women weren't allowed to VOTE.

This is exactly the type of injustice and open discrimination against women that the 19th and 20th century feminists fought so hard to eliminate, and, no doubt, what many conservative right-wing guys would like to see women returned to. These guys can't get past the fact that both marriage and motherhood are now CHOICES, which women can REJECT if they don't want to be wives or mothers.

By chance were you an alter boy that had a "special" relationship with the priest? I was also raised Catholic, the middle of five, and for awhile we all thought my youngest brother was gay. He has more kids then any of us at four.

God told one of those men, that although he was very smart and taught the people, he didn't even know God.
Did Jesus choose smart, educated men?
Jesus gravitated towards the least amongst us. He was not boastful and did not use words of poison or harm, unlike the smarter then God crowd posting here.

Whatever THAT means. You come across to me as just another anti-education extremist, embittered that you can't force students to endure hours of required "Christian" prayer and bible study. Too bad.

If religionists want their kids to get nothing but faith-based "education," they can come up with the money to send their kids to private religious schools. You don't get to force your toxic religious beliefs on public school students, and thank goodness for THAT.

How about you google "do hindus woship cows" and get back to me with your results? You love to talk out your arse about other cultures and faiths, including your own, I see.

It's up to you to provide evidence to support your claim. You like to speak of science supporting the bible, but then you can't even grasp the basics of science.

With every post you make, you fall deeper into the fundie abyss..

Some "SOME" -SOME- hindus do worship cows.
It could even be "MANY " according to what worship means to people.
As far as my God and my God being relevant to you and your beliefs, then if my God, just so happens to be The One and Only True God 'and I believe He is ",then He is relevant ,to not only you, but all of us.
I was never looking for a religion to join, or a club, when the One True God saved my soul, and forever changed my life.
There is no magic formula, or pattern of words that must be said. If a person is at a place in his /her life, where they need to know if there is a Real God, and the call our to this Real God, from a broken spirit and humble heart, then the One True God will come forth and save that persons soul.
He is the Only One Who can, and He will reveal His Nane to that person when He wills.
No, Hindus do not worship cows.

The rest of your post did nothing to prove that I'm "wrong about God".

I'm not sure why God says that by grace are we saved, through faith?
It is a gift, since there is nothing anyone can do to deserve salvation.
If I were able to build my own god, I'm sure I would change things, but only to find out, that I should have left God alone.
There may not be any evidence, other then the bible, and since God could have came yo earth at any time, and yet chose that time, then who knows -God knows.
There is no evidence against God either, no matter what mans trys to say.
Just like the 10 comandments were written in stone.
Gold was available, along with other things, but God chose stone.
With stone -you either keep them or you break them.
I for one broke Gods law, and was facing judgement.
I needed a savior, and I now have one.
That is all I am really trying to do, is tell others about this wonderful savior I found. At the same time I and those others get side tracked about abortion, cow worship, what the bible says and doesn't say.
It is all by faith. People believe the bible by faith.
People believe books that are against the bible by faith.
I believe to the point, that I call it fact, but will not know for certain till I die, and sadly many non -believers will not know if they are right or wrong untill they die.
I fully understand why some non believers wish all religions would just go away, and the world would be better off, but I now know it is not ever going to happen.
If people only knew me 13 years ago. Most on here would have loved me!
You should build a god with Lego's.

Why in the world would I know what a T cell is?

T cell/any of several lymphoytes (as a helper T cell) that differentiate in the thymus, possess highly specific cell-surface antigen receptors, and include some that control some that control the initiation or suppress of cell-mediatead and humoral immunity (as by the regulation of T and B cell maturation and proliferation) and others that lyse antigen-bearing cells - called also lymphocyte - compare B CELL (thymus-derived cell)

Maybe YOU should learn how to spell it correctly, buddy.

If Elise were a nurse, can you imagine someone like THAT taking care of you. Shudders. She's probably an orderly or something of that nature. She very insecure and is looking for credibility. Sad woman.

Was there anything else you would like to know? If you think of anything let me know. I'll be happy to look it up.

Drug companies bent over backwards to help you people out. They did an excellent job, in a short period of time. YOU should be thankful, instead of down in the mouth.

I remember all the picketing and marching you all did. Talk about demanding!

Raygun? That was a different time. People thought differently then. That's human nature. You seem to think if you snap your fingers, you should get your own way. It doesn't work like that. Relax.
