Do you consider them uncorrelated,that is, independent variables?

OK.

Do you think that comment contradicts something that I wrote? If so, please quote whatever you think you just contradicted.

Yes, a person can be convicted of murder for conduct that is so reckless, thoughtless and inconsiderate, and foreseeably could result in death or serious bodily injury, such that it rises to the level of malice aforethought--that's the standard for murder.
If we can catch their god, maybe we can put it on trial.
OK, thanks, counselor.

Would you consider Jehovah's negligence in the Garden depraved indifference? That is, could the eternal torture of billions of souls that resulted from an omniscient deity leaving innocents unattended with a malicious supervillain be considered depraved indifference in the legal sense? Does this differ from reckless negligence?

Herod the Fox.
Metaphors are figures of speech in which a term describing a certain object is used to decribe something else for the purpose of making a vivid comparison.This was rhetorical device that Jesus often used.He called King Herod that fox.(Luke 13:32)He called himself the bread of life.(John 6:35) and the true vine (John 15:1)He even called some who came to follow him you brood of vipers.(Luke 3:7).
It's an extremely common literary device in your bible:

A fisher of men
The good shepherd and his flock
A thief in the night
The bride of Christ
The apple of your eye
A lamp unto my feet
A city set on a hill

You are welcome. I loved my daddy and miss him so much but I cant imagine losing my mom. I know that we don't always see eye to eye on things but we are all brothers and sisters and should help one another whenever we can. Can we just forgive and agree to disagree on our differences and just spread the Love of God to others? That should be our main goal. Do you agree?:)
And I'm sorry about the loss of your father as well, but it sounds like from your post that you are much closer to your mom than you were your dad, a situation that I also share, the worst thing for me personally concerning my mother was to watch her suffer multiple illnesses and being unable to do anything to help her ir at least help easing her pain and suffering, it was frustrating to watch and her quality of life was absolute zero, she wasn't even able to respond to myself or to anyone else, the support of our churches Pastor and general overseer and the saints were very instrumental in helping me past my grief along with a few relatives as well.

Yes..........I would like to simply agree to disagree more in the spirit of peace ( which is what we should all do ) and just focus our lives on the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for the feedback GW and God Bless you and yours.(c:

Bonsoir mon ami *Smiles* I liked this it was wonderful like you I too am a minor Jazz fan. What memories do you have of New Orleans? May I ask where you were born? And if this question does not make you uncorfortable what was your childhood like?
I visited New Orleans for a few days in 2002, before Katrina.

My most vivid memory is visiting Sammy's for dinner, where one of our party ordered beer in a frosted mug. The waiter, who didn't know us at all, just looked at him and said, "You in Nawlins now, motherf**ker," meaning "No."

The phrase delighted us so much that we have adapted it to our present home, which has been Mexico for the last three years. When things seem a little odd to us, or somebody asks "Why?," the complete answer is "You in Mexico now, mofo."

We spent two nights at the Wyndam Whitney on Poydras and Camp Sts. The restaurants we visited besides Sammy’s included Felix’s, Mother’s and Café Bignet. We visited the aquarium, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 and the gravesite of voodooist Marie Leveaux, and guzzled hurricanes and daiquiri’s on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. I was carded at Harrah's and denied entrance because I had left my ID in the hotel safe.

I was born in Culver City, California, and have been a Californian most of my life, although I went to university in Ohio for many years, served in the military in the D.C and Maryland area for a few years, and lived and worked in rural Missouri for eleven years, from whence I retired to México in 2009.

My parents were also unbelievers, and I was raised without religion except during adolescence, when my divorced mother remarried a failed rabbinical student, and I had a taste of Judaism, including Chanukah menorahs, Passover seders, separate sets of dishes, and a bar mitzvah for which I learned to read (but not understand) Hebrew. It was unpleasant for me.

I became a zealous Christian from about 1974 - age 20 - until the early eighties.

Hope that answers your questions, and thank you for your interest.

Did your pastor or anybody else tell you about or recommend hospice? Nobody needs to suffer like that at the end of life.

The writing of God.

The Bible claims to be the word of God.However some passages mention God's writing explicitly.
The Ten Commandments were written with the finger of God.(Exodus 31:18)they were the writing of God(Exodus 31:16)The pattern for the Temple is described as the writing from the hand of the Lord.(1 Chroncicles 28:19)

A strange Ramine.

The prophet Amos gives a startlingly vivid picture of what conditions would soon be like in Israel because of it rejection of the Lord.I will send a famine on the land;not a famine of bread but of hearing words of the Lord they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord but they shall not find it.(Amos 8:11&12)

A strange meal.

On two occasions biblical characters ate a scroll that contained God's words as a symbol of internalizing them;the prophet Ezekiel(Ezekiel 2:8 and 3:3)and the apostle John (Revelation 10:9&10) In both cases it tasted "Sweet as honey" which echoes the words of Psalm 119:103 "How sweet are thy words to my taste sweeter than honey to my mouth".

In our society, yes, Jehovah's conduct would rise to that criminal level. In California the legal term is "wilful and wanton misconduct."
