Indeed--which is why **all** religion is always corrupt.

LOL,
I have a piece of paper signed by three psychologists that affirms I am capable of living on my own.
You need one of those.
I can help you get one.
Smile.
I can easily believe you are certified insane.

It goes with your continued hate, as in the above.

Sorry Bob ..you do make a few claims (not many) but this one is not supported by evidence.
Or reality, at least from not my reality.
"He's lying. His premiums did not go up-- that's a Fox SNooze lie-- and has been proven to be a lie every single time FN claims it-- by fact checkers."
It isn't fox that makes all these claims either, I imagine your reality is disconnected, from the one I experience .Some of us see healthcare as nothing more than a new way the government can sink claws into you. Maybe you like claws in you?
What we want is government in it's place. In service and not like the gaping maw it has become.
LOL!

No-- I've seen the alleged reports of "going up"-- they have, without exception, been flat lies.

In this case? You're wrong.

But that's okay-- I still like you anyway.

A "soft science"?
Why do you say that?
It relies too much on opinion, and not enough on objectivity.

Since it's really not ethical to actually experiment on humans (as would be required to achieve objective observations)?

They must rely on reports from the people involved (those being studied). And that is simply unreliable.

All that shows is that you lied to three psychologists.
Tell me, how long did you see each of the three psychologists for?
Indeed... at *least* 3.

Of course, his entire story is more likely a pure lie, written to try to get sympathy.

I've known them for a long time, they are friends and peers.
Do you need a paper too?
SMile.
Your entire story smacks of a flat lie.

It's how you True Believers™ operate-- by telling (and repeating) lies.

Thanks for playing.

The position of the atheist is that the theist has not successfully met his or her burden of proof.
The burden of proof with regard to gods rests solely with the side claiming their existence.
They've convinced themselves that atheism means absolute certainty that no gods exist, they reason that to be absolutely certain without proof is a form of faith.
Atheism is not about certainty at all; it is about doubt.

And finally, we see the *real* motive for his fictional story about psychiatrists-- so he could belittle others.

Was he immoral? He certainly only liked girls, wasn't that type of cat. He liked a good fight with other toms though, which is how they catch it.
Was God punishing him, vomiting blood on his last day? Or maybe punishing me, because his death nearly killed me too.
I'm so sorry you lost your friend like that.

I lost a tom in exactly the same way, many years back. I still sometimes wake up and miss him even now.

Hm.

As a science I think it can be objective, however, I agree that as a study it can be unreliable.

The variable depends on the honesty of the people involved and a psychologist's ability to remain unattached and neutral.

Actually?

There are many excellent reasons why it's cheaper to pay for free contraceptives, than to pay for unwanted babies later.

And worse-- to pay for the crimes that kids who grow up unwanted typically commit.

A condom costs a few cents.

The crimes committed by an unwanted teen living on the streets, is beyond measure--if people are killed in the process.

Your shortsighted and selfish idiocy is also without limit.
