Come up with something new, Ink. I answered all your questions in this post you are ignoring...

Here's the deal, if you can asow me in your translation where it says, under the cover of some other word that the woman is pregnant, then I will agree with you. It must be there for your translation to make sense.

STO: It's a given if she miscarried, she was pregnant. The translation for "rot" includes abortion.


Ink: <quoted text>You never answered how it is possible for a non pregnant woman to abort.

STO: Never made that claim.

You never answered how sterility could prove infidelity.

You'd rather keep going round and round, applying the faith-based view when it suits you and the secular view when it suits you.

AyakaNeo rightly pointed out that the bitter water would only affect the guilty woman, even if the innocent woman were also pregnant. That is the faith based view -- that God would reveal the truth.

The secular view is the bitter water would affect both guilty and innocent women the same, if both were pregnant. That is the view you are arguing.

I've argued (in the past) the husband better have been damn sure his wife cheated, else he may be forcing her to miscarry a potential hier. That goes with the secular view.

I've already said the only sure test that could prove a woman cheated is if the priest took a swab from her vagina and found another man's DNA. Again, secular view.

I think we've exhausted all "what ifs", yet you still pretend the translation does not exist, even though I've shown it to you several times.

I'm bored with it.

I suppose there's really no use in getting into the 7 days creation question. You'd dismiss the translations without explanation, as you've done here, and I'd be just wasting my time.

Why does the husband suspect infidelity when the wife denies it and there are no witnesses? You think he'd pubicly declare he was cuckoolded with no reason?

And I'll ask you again, what happens to the unfaithful woman who is sterile (your understanding w/out translation), and how could her sterility be confirmed?

9 things you should know about Pope Francis

March 13, 2013 (ActonInstitute)- Early today, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina was elected as the 266th pope of the Catholic Church. Here are nine things you should know about Pope Francis.

1. Bergoglio was born in Buenos Aires in 1936. His father was an Italian immigrant

2. He’s the first pope from South America. The only remaining continents that have never had a pope come from their lands are Australia, Antarctica, and North America.

3. He’s the first Jesuit pope.

4. He only has one lung. His other lung was removed due to infection when he was a teenager

5. Bergoglio is known for his personal simplicity. In Argentina he lived in a simple apartment rather than the archbishop’s palace, cooked his own meals, and gave up his chauffeured limousine in favor of taking the bus to work.

Click "like" if you are PRO-LIFE!

6. In 2010, when Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, Bergoglio encouraged clergy across the country to tell Catholics to protest against the legislation because, if enacted, it could “seriously injure the family” and that gay adoption would be “depriving (children) of the human growth that God wanted them given by a father and a mother.”

7. He studied and received a master’s degree in chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires, but later decided to become a Jesuit priest and studied liberal arts at the Catholic seminary in Santiago, Chile.

8. At the age of 76, Francis is the ninth oldest pope of those elected after 1295.(Benedict, who was elected at the age of 78, was fifth oldest.)

9. Last year, Bergoglio compared Catholic priests who refused to baptize the children of unwed mothers to the Pharisees of Jesus’ day.“These are today’s hypocrites. Those who clericalize the Church,” he said, adding,“Jesus teaches us another way: Go out. Go out and share your testimony, go out and interact with your brothers, go out and share, go out and ask. Become the Word in body as well as spirit.”

LifeSiteNews editor's note: To this list we would add a 10th "must know" fact. That Cardinal Bergoglio has strongly condemned abortion, even in cases of rape. In a 2007 speech given to a gathering of priests and laity on October 2nd, then-Cardinal Bergoglio issued a defense of life even in cases of rape saying: "we aren’t in agreement with the death penalty," but "in Argentina we have the death penalty. A child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death."

All religions believe in God. Number one requirement for heaven.
You say that you don't believe in God and all you want is to be remembered well. When I agree that you will get what you want, you get mad and talk about an exclusive club that doesn't include non believers. Are you confused about what you really believe?
No, I did not get "mad". This is what I'm addressing...

Ink..."Unfortunately without God, that's the end for her."

Ink..."All religions believe in God. Number one requirement for heaven."

What I am saying is that religion teaches you these things. I'm saying that "if" heaven actually were to exist and "if" God actually were to exist then I don't believe God would exclude people from heaven. That is what religion tells people to keep them in line. I think that if there were actually a God, he wouldn't care anything about organized religion. Organized religions are the ones making up all these rules.

Yes, there is evidence. More importantly, it's not a matter of belief; evolution is the theory that most effectively explains the data. I fully expect that there will be adjustments as time goes on, because that's what science is.

Let's say a person who enjoys cursing God in the privacy of their own home, having much sex with many others, but with their consent,and many many other things, that are against God, but not once in their life do they hurt another human?
It goes back to you either feel like YOU are WORTHY of Heaven on your own merit, or you must do what I and others have been smart enough to do, which is put our faith and trust in the Only one that ever lived who was Worthy to merit Heaven.

Hey, maybe I can't reconcile it, according to you,
No, not according to me. The fact is it CAN'T be reconciled. It is a blatant contradiction and only one of the reasons RvW was a terrible decision. How can you consider a SC decision that includes such contradictory statements to be acceptable let alone good constitutional law ?

but still you did not address my point about elevating the rights of the z/e/f above the rights of the woman.
I never said they should be. When the same rights of each are compared and are in conflict, the woman's rights should always prevail.

The z/e/f is not born, but the woman is. And I don't have the legal expertise of a Supreme Court Justice ya know?
So what ? So you define the point at which a human life is due legal protection to be some arbitrary point of separation from it's mother ? That logic doesn't hold up to any scrutiny.....legal, moral or otherwise. Besides, an unborn fetus is ALREADY afforded legal protection post-viability. You disagree with RvW ?
Every time you ejac-late (topix doesn't like that word) millions of live sperms will die...sperm that had the *potential* to become a person. Would you want your sperm's rights elevated above your own? I realize it's not the best analogy, but I think you get the point.
Ridiculous. We're back to talking about sperm and individual cells being considered as life. This is NOT what the SC was referring to when they spoke of "life".
What we need is BC that is 100% effective and then 100% compliance with using it and then we could be arguing something else.
I've got to get to work. Have a good one.
That would be a good start. But even now though no BC method is 100% effective, proper use of two forms of BC used in conjunction with each other would reduce the risk of pregnancy to an extremely small percentage. No educated person today need ever become pregnant if they don't want to. The incidence of abortion today just illustrates the fact that it is still being used as a back up form of birth control on a massive scale by the lazy, careless and the indifferent. To deny that is to deny reality.

"It's precisely the difference in the process that qualifies it as a crime.
Your reference to suicide is also not relevant as the comparison has always been a "natural" occurring death vs intentional death caused by outside influence....and the difference between those two."

You are talking about elective abortions here and equating it with homicide (intentional death caused by outside influence. So yeah you are referencing abortion as murder.
Yeah I'm equating it with homicide. Homicide is not necessarily murder. All homicide isn't even necessarily criminal. So exactly how am I equating it with murder again ? Stop lying.
The only difference is the intent, there is no difference in the process.
Pretty significant difference I'd say. The same way the only difference between death caused by cardiac arrest due to a congenital heart defect and death due to cardiac arrest caused by a fired bullet through the heart is intent. The process of death is still the same. But it would be ludicrous to compare the two and conclude that because the process of death is the same with each that there is no difference between the two.

This would happen if the trimester framework was struck down.
I'm "anti-choice" and I don't want viability to occur within the first 3 months. In fact I don't think viability should be the basis for when a human life is afforded legal protection at all.
Stop assuming you always know what others "want".
