you really do not know enough about this cult to talk about it..we have proven that over and over...
Damn.

One more time, moron. It's all abou tthe principles. "I knew you not" is what you'd hear from Jesus if you believed in God but didn't practice the principles of the New Testament, moron.

Just how stupid are you?

Let me explain one more time. You have been indoctrinated probably beyond recovery by that religious cult you belong to, but I'll just give it one more try.

If Jesus lived in Bora Bora, and lived his life in the same way as described in the New Testament, then the people of Bora Bora wrote a New Testament defining a new system of principles according to the life Jesus led on Bora Bora, then what we know as Christianity would have emerged from the Bora Bora bible and not the Hebrew bible, you moron.

man-made global warming is a myth.....
According to who moron? You? The overwhelming majority of climate scientists, those who aren't on the Koch brother's payroll agree that global warming is attributed to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and that its source is burning fossil fuels. Here's one guy, Richard Muller, who actually was on the Koch payroll;
“Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”

ANNAPOLIS, Md.— A transgender candidate has announced she will run against an openly gay state senator in Montgomery County in the Democratic primary.
Dana Beyer, who is the executive director of Gender Rights Maryland, made the announcement Thursday.
Beyer says Maryland residents have waited too long for economic fairness and equal opportunity.
Beyer is running against Sen. Richard Madaleno, who has been in the state Senate since 2007. He served in the House of Delegates from 2003 to 2007. Madaleno has been an advocate for gay and transgender rights in Maryland. He is sponsoring a bill this session to ban discrimination against transgender residents.
Beyer ran unsuccessfully for delegate in 2006 and 2010.

You know, I normally don't even read your references... because I usually find something like this you seem to think is proof of something:
"Others were simply Muslims who were upset that their prophet had apparently been maligned in the US. Several Christians joined the crowd to protest the insults to Muhammad."
When has Muhammed not been maligned in the US? I can turn on any one of a dozen Christian networks coming through my cable, and I can find righ tnow as we speak someone maligning Muhammed to the entire country.
I noticed there wasn't anyone at the scene reporting this, too.
CNN knew there would be PLANNED demonstrations and had a full crew and interviews scheduled.
CNN had been recording demonstrations for two days.
CNN recorded the PLANNED main speaker of the PLANNED demonstrations, being the brother of the blind sheik.
The PLANNED main speaker said the demonstrations were PLANNED to put pressure on the United States to releas the blind sheik from prison.
CNN interviewed another dozen demonstrators.
In every interview, CNN video taped the demonstrators telling you the demonstrations were PLANNED to put pressure on the United States to release the blind sheik from prison.
Nobody CNN interviewed, either in their studio there or on the street, said anything other than the demonstrations were PLANNED to put pressure on the US to release the blind sheik.
So, just why don't you believe what the demonstrators themselves tell you?
holy shit! i show you proof of protester in cairo on 9-11 over he video and you jsut deny the proof in front of you...

amazing!

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act did not cause the current crisis. It was the failure of regulation, not deregulation.
http://www.cato.org/policy-report/julyaugust-...
The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act had little if anything to do with the current crisis. Economists on both sides of the political spectrum suggested that it probably made the crisis less severe than it might otherwise have been.
There’s plenty of blame to go around and "layered irresponsibility.
&#9726;The Federal Reserve slashed interest rates after the dot-com bubble burst making credit cheap.
&#9726;Home buyers took advantage of easy credit to bid up the prices of homes excessively.
&#9726;Congress continued to support a mortgage tax deduction that gave consumers a tax incentive to buy more expensive houses.
&#9726;Real estate agents earned higher commissions from selling more expensive homes.
&#9726;The Clinton administration pushed for less stringent credit and downpayment requirements for working- and middle-class families.
&#9726;Mortgage brokers offered less-credit-worthy home buyers subprime, adjustable rate loans with low initial payments but exploding interest rates.
&#9726;Former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan in 2004 encouraged Americans to take out adjustable rate mortgages.
&#9726;Wall Street firms paid little attention to the quality of the risky loans that they bundled into Mortgage Backed Securities and issued bonds using those securities as collateral.
&#9726;The Bush administration failed to provide needed government oversight of the increasingly dicey mortgage-backed securities market.
&#9726;An obscure accounting rule called mark-to-market can have the paradoxical result of making assets be worth less on paper than they are in reality during times of panic.
&#9726;Collective delusion or a belief on the part of all parties that home prices would keep rising forever no matter how high or how fast they had already gone up.
The U.S. economy is enormously complicated. Screwing it up takes a great deal of cooperation. Claiming that a single piece of legislation was responsible for (or could have averted) the crisis is just political grandstanding.
http://www.factcheck.org/2008/10/who-caused-t...
Well Carol, you were the one that accused Clinton of deregulating the financial industry, not me. So as usual when you're called on this you reverse course. But the fact remains that the GOP refused to regulate the market in mortgage backed securities.

Interesting conversation. Faith is a matter of The Heart and Spirit. And The Mind.

Though Science can neither prove nor disprove God exists, it is interesting that they are researching, looking for what is known as "The God Particle" in The Universe.

Many studies have been conducted ( CT Scans for one ) that show when a person is in prayer, a certain part of the brain is very active, the "third eye" The Pineal Gland ( a small endocrine gland ) which is located deep within the brain, in the center of the right and left hemisphere of the brain. While other parts of the brain become inactive.

I don't think faith is a simple concept.
I think it's very complex.
The Spiritual, if you've ever experienced it ( in whatever way, meditation etc. et al.) is real.
Once you have experienced The Spiritual Realm, you'll know it's very real.
Faith ( in whatever/whomever ) is then Seen.

PS Atheism is also a Religion/Faith. It has a set of belief systems.
It asserts with absolute certainty that there is no God.
That's "faith", a belief - Derived from or Arrived at by a set of beliefs, A System.
