Another one of my faults. I just cannot resist sending your own words back to you.
"Honey you have no idea how I act and you guesswork is nothing more than guesswork. You let yourself down by making such statements."
I am not 100% certain, but I believe it was shown on BBC America. Again, if I am not mistaken, France had a few places, too.
I do my best to tell the truth, always; I like having credibility. Also, I have a terrible memory, so telling the truth makes my life easier. No, I do not expect, or even hope for, credibility on Topix; it is just the way I try to live, no matter where I am.
I do not understand!, you made a guess at how I live my life and I commented on your physical and observable words, how is that the same thing?

There you go absorbing the media hype again. I live in the North West UK and spend a considerable amount of my life in France. I too have seen such reports and have often wondered why the reports differ so much from the reality. Now tell me what do I consider the most reliable source of information, the sensationalist media bandwagon earning money by pandering to emotions of the age or someone who deals with Muslims on a daily basis, who lives in the UK and spends quite a lot time in France?

What is there to concentrate on? the current temp? the temp of tomorrow the possibility of rain? It takes sooo much concentration to listen to the weather, yup. If it makes you feel better maybe they could do a coed nude weather forcast.

Why wouldn't it, to everyone but us, isn't she predicting the actions of a god/weather?

Silly goose.
Go to a revival meeting if that is what you want, to be saved. To have others reach out to you. Only for you to make fun of them.
If you haven't got a clue yet, then you never will.
I, for one, am here to destroy you.
You and your gods scare me! You are so powerful!

Or are you denying the deletions?
I was going to try an answer all you posts, but then, I thought, what is the point? We are no closer to an understanding than the day we started.

The freedoms that we have, in the U.S., were hard fought for and I am not willing to give them up, especially to appease radicals, who murder over a cartoon!

So you only believe that a person is responsible for his actions if that person is not American. OK

I’m not sure the general public would agree with you. No need for it to be on primetime TV, have you considered the children?

If you want naked then there are plenty of sites on the internet.

And can you really say that you would take any notice of the news?

Garbage. Saying something is true is simply a way of saying it holds. When I say that it is true that matter attracts matter, that is completely equivalent to saying that matter attracts matter.
So truth depends on there being something to be true about.
Even if the universe did not exist it would still be logically true the universe could not create itself. Logic and truth is not universe dependent the same way gravity and motion is. If the universe ceased to exist then so would gravity and motion which can be measured and tested. Not so with logic and truth. Both transcend the universe and need a cause.
Why? It isn't a physical thing. it isn't a causally connected item. It isn't an object in time. So no 'cause' of truth is required.
No cause of truth required? That is a cop out.
