Of course the Bible isn't proof. These people don't admit that 'anything' written in the Bible happened but I find it interesting that what so many people call myths and stories , scientists are finding actually have some basis in fact. I have never said that the story of Noah is 'literal'. I only said that it seems that there was a 'mother of all floods' and it occurred in Noah's day. The Ark may represent something totally different.
That's one of the definitions of the word Myth, Ink. To describe a natural occurrence. Did you miss that part when it was C&Ped AND linked for you the other day?

Another refresher for you:

No, that's not what you said. You said "faces the possibility", not that every woman has the right. Stop trying to backpedal.
Follow me. If every woman has the legal right to kill her own fetus, then every fetus is in danger of being killed. Every man woman and child runs the risk of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and being killed. Random shootings, reckless driving, angering someone unstable all possible ways to meet your maker at someone else's call.

I certainly understand the 'myth' of Noah's Ark it was the devastating flood that I questioned being called a myth when there is strong evidence that it occurred. I don't often miss much.

So YOU would have made the decision to have an abortion when pregnant?

See, you are the one who cannot follow along. It's not a question of if every woman COULD, but if every woman WOULD. Unless 100% of all women would make such a decision about her own pregnancy, then not 100% of all fetuses face such a possibility. Get it NOW, Witless?

I did pass because it was a pretty snarky question that had nothing to do with the subject. But yes the definintion from the fifties and sixties and seventies and eighties and nineties has been changed to include same sex marriage in the dictionary. Do I believe that God was involved? Yes, I believe that He is involved in everything.
Uh-huh....

Do you believe God is involved in abortion and same-sex marriage?

There was nothing snarky about my post.
And I resent you saying there was.
To add, I was not including the 1960s-1990s.*You* did that in an erroneous attempt to confirm your own beliefs.
You have been proven wrong, even by dictionary standards. When are you going to admit this?
I will gladly admit it when you show it to me in a dictionary that hasn't been updated to include same sex marriage. But what is the difference anyway as same sex marriage is included now.

I'm sorry that you were offended by my comment but I found your adlib about women being expected to be wives and mothers as though that was something bad or subservient condesending. My dictionary didn't suggest the roles played by the spouses. I guess they assumed that men and women would work that out for themselves. I know I did.

Then why were they arguing with me? All I said was that there is scientific evidence that there was a catastrophic flood around the same time that the Bible says there was.

Now we can move on I hope.

Queen of semantics.

If you were in a hopeless situation, maybe dying of cancer, would you have an abortion if pregnant? Maybe that woman who would never have an abortion, would under the right circumstances. I think many women who have had abortions saw no other out and I think when their life got better they regretted their decision.

That's why it is so important to pray. So many times you find the answers you need to get through a tough time.

Because we have all been posting here for so long and have divided ourselves into a "my side" "your side" way of speaking to each other.

Couldnt we all try to get along better even though we disagree on various issues? I'd like to say I've made an effort to get along with you, but I just can't stand some of the BS that sassy and Peggy post here.

LOL, oh, the irony of this coming from you. Aren't you whining about a change (non-existent) in the meaning of the word "marriage", Wiltess?

Stop projecting.

You didn't answer the question. Would YOU ever/have considered having an abortion?

Who, exactly, was claiming any ancient flood was a myth?? Why would you think such a thing? My recollection of this conversation does not include anyone saying the devastating flood was a myth. Please specify.

Okay sounds good to me. Since we were talking about Bible myths, what do you think about this line in the Bible?

3. At a time when it was believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant (1500 B.C.), the Bible spoke of the earth’s free float in space: "He...hangs the earth upon nothing" (Job 26:7).

It is floating in space. How would anyone know that? There are also verses that tell us the earth is round thousands of years before science discovered it.

That isn't quite true. You called it a 'fabled' flood.

<quoted text>
They discovered an ancient shoreline and shells carbon dated to be about 5,000 BC for starters.

You said;
"There is no evidence linking it to the fabled world wide flood."

I can't see anyway that I would but then I haven't lost my mind yet.

BTW I don't care about the change. It is for you, not me.

I believe that we have the ability to behave as we want, because we ARE - not because some God says 'yes' or 'no'. I believe women not only have the ability to decide whether or not to continue a pregnancy according to our own best interests, but the moral right to do so. And I don't believe we're required to feel bad about deciding NOT to continue any given pregnancy, at the time, or in the future, or that 'God' has any say in the matter. Or, if He exists, that he gives a damn one way or the other.

That would be the belief of all atheists. I think that is well known.

LOL, ah, there's that dishonesty again. You can't admit that you would never have an abortion, because then you'd have to admit my point. Got it.

There's been no change. But still, how would it be "for" ME?

Aw, you found a typo. Does it make you feel better that I hit the right keys in the wrong order? It doesn't make a difference, you're still witless.
