How did you expect me to take being called an extremist?
You're confused. I don't care how you meant it, I'm just explaining what SHE meant. You trying to be insulting is no skin off my nose. You're not capable of succeeding at it, anyway.

You don't have to explain anyone else to me. Just explain yourself and what you meant by extremist.

Obviously, I did have to explain what she meant, because you didn't understand it.

And no, I don't have to explain my comment to you. If you don't know what the word means, look it up.

Why not? It could have meant exactly the same thing. The earth hangs in space with nothing to support it means the same thing now.
Circle still means round and I don't think there was a word for spherical.
I highly doubt that every time the bible uses the phrase "the ends of the earth" it means the same as our modern saying "I'll search to the ends of the earth to find .....". It seems almost laughable that you're trying to tell me that they mean the same thing. Never mind that just the majority of the world thought the world was flat.

Back to the "he who sits above the circle of the earth".

It "could" have meant that they think the world is flat and that you would fall off if you reached the end. Can you accept that possibility?

Are you still hinting that the bible says the is "round"?

Is the bible literal when you want it to be and allegorical when you want it to be?

Yes I can accept that possibility. When the Bible or actually the Torah was written, I am sure the people thought the world was flat and limited to what they knew.
I just think it is interesting that a word for flat wasn't used.
Why do you think that was?

Mostly allegorical for the Old Testament. But remember, I do believe in God and through Him anything is possible. Most of the New testament I take literal although biased.

From Acts 1

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes to you. Then you will be my witnesses to testify about me in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

This is Jesus talking to the disciples about preaching His word of love and redemption. I think it means the same thing today.

Where? Legal abortion was supposed to prevent that from occurring. I do know that Ireland has one of the lowest maternal death rates in the world.

I would have a problem deciding which is the more important neighbor solely on the basis of them living in the same house ??? You are going to have to be more specific about the circumstances under which I'm making this decision. Your question as it stands is absurd.

Nobody is more important. We are all the same in God's eyes.

You got it. In fact I'll give the woman within whom that neighbor resides deferential treatment so long as we are considering similar rights for each.

Next what ?

The maternal death rate in the U.S. is creeping upward — to more than double what it was 25 years ago. Systems identifying deaths have improved, so how much the increase can be attributed to risk is uncertain. But experts agree maternal deaths are no longer declining, are underestimated, largely preventable and disproportionately affect certain groups.

“We have not seen a decrease in maternal mortality, and that is worrisome,” said Dr. George Saade, director of maternal-fetal medicine at University of Texas Medical Branch. He said black women were three to four times more likely than white women to die from pregnancy.“These two things are very concerning, particularly in a developed country like the U.S.”

The 20th century saw a dramatic decrease in pregnancy-related deaths, largely because of improvements in sterile techniques — reaching the lowest point in 1987 at 7.2 deaths per 100,000 live births. The most recent figures available show the rate hovers around 15 deaths per 100,000 births — placing the U.S. near the bottom among developed nations.

The rate of severe complications during and after delivery have also doubled in the last decade, according to a 2012 federal study. Near-misses, where a woman nearly dies, increased by 27 percent.

That means each year in the U.S., about 700 women die of pregnancy-related complications and 52,000 experience emergencies such as acute renal failure, shock, respiratory distress, aneurysms and heart surgery. An additional 34,000 barely avoid death.

My apologies for the previous misstatement of information: complications have doubled in the last decade; actual deaths have doubled over the last two and a half decades. ISC

No one is asking you to give her 'deferential' treatment. We're insisting that she be credited with having the exact same right to personal risk assessment, bodily autonomy, and self-defense, as you or anyone else, even when pregnant. Pregnancy doesn't afford either more OR fewer rights - it shouldn't affect the rights to personal risk assessment, bodily/medical autonomy, or self-defense in any way other than the continued recognition of those rights as applied to pregnant women.

I have no intention of weighing in on your personal/medical/reproductive decisions,(as if you would ever consider allowing me to) and I expect to be extended the same respect for my right to make the personal/medical/reproductions decisions I see fit.

Capeesh?
