Actually, you are the one who flunked the bible quiz, and you are the one who still thinks that his cafeteria choices reperesent objective truth in a book with no definite meaning.

You mean the moral equivalents of whoremongers and murderers, right?
It means whatever the individual believer wants it to mean.
<quoted text>
Unbelievers? Don't you mean the wickedness and darkness?
You can continue to sugar coat your vile book, and I'll continue to reveal the excrement below the candy shell, OK?
And you can go on pretending to have superior understanding of a book that can be understood in any way, and I'll go on exposing that as well, OK?
LOl exposing your ignorance you mean

And let's see. You were raised an atheist yet as an adult became a Christian because you chose to

You just said you had a good church

You said after leaving the faith you were indifferent to Christianity until you came on Topix

So all your rants about Christianity on a society you don't even live in and how evil the bible is from you is just more made-for-Topix fraud. You just like the attention.

It just seems a little crazy to have Christmas stuff out before Halloween. That doesn't seem odd to you?

Even if the proposition of "life" on another "planet" were restricted to "mirroring life on earth" the probability for life existing elsewhere is very high. More recent investigations indicate that life is capable of existence in environments formerly thought restrictive. Lending credence to thoughtful speculation.
Actually, I agree with that. I find it incredibly laughable when people life is limited to 'Earth-like life'. Who knows? An alien species could be something we can't even imagine, could be a conscious cloud of dust, or a physical body no human has even thought of.

What you say, I agree with. That there is a "high probability" of alien life out there.

But for a person to say "there MUST be" seems a bit arrogant and wrong.
non-of-which constitutes "belief"
Yes it does. You believe there's alien life in the universe. Until proven, that's your belief.
I do not intend, nor will I be enticed, to work thorough the scientific justifications, nor the mathematics, for those who form their concept of reality upon fear and desire.
Eh?

I never said anything about being mouthy, missy. Mouthy is meaningless over there. I said you were heavily invested in your human condition, and that it would be interesting to watch how they turn you. They won't have a hard time, it's what they do. It might take a while, but time is one thing they've got plenty of.

That's the answer these days.

But in my days of private practice, it was because no patients wanted to come in on Christmas, no employees wanted to work, and the lab didn't pick up blood samples, which would have sat at least an extra day before being processed.

Working Christmas day really wasn't an option.

WTF do I care what you call rude? Epi expressed a sentiment, and I expressed a contradictory one, which is the purpose of a Topix thread. Prayer fails, just like the ones you people have been offering for America - obviously.
You consider pointing out that obvious truth rude and unacceptable because you don't like the implications. I don't care.

Well said.

Here's a variation on the same them: America the Christian nation

The Ten Commandments fit the United States like $10 shoes, from the first, where we install the "almighty" dollar as an idol, to the last, when we rely on covetousness to turn the wheels of commerce. We keep the Sabbath holy by shopping for bargains and allow and excuse false witness for advertising and political spin. We have been casual about killing for a nation that believes in "Thou shall not kill." And as for adultery, we apparently couldn't have a Congress without it. Beyond all that, we revere the Ten Commandments to shreds. Tom Blackburn

On a side note...

"Doctor," the embarrassed man said, "I have a sexual problem. I can't get it up for my wife anymore.

"Mr. Garrett, bring her back with you tomorrow and let me see what I can do."

The next day, the worried fellow returned with his wife. "Take off your clothes, Mrs. Garrett," the medic said. "Now turn all the way around. Lie down please. Uh-huh, I see. Okay, you may put your clothes back on."

The doctor took the husband aside. "You're in perfect health," he said. "Your wife didn't give me an erection either."

Im sure you made up for it by charging them two office visits and giving them a refill for the opiates.

Besides, if you needed extra cash you could always have the option to bill insurance companies for work you didn't do.

What as the reason you started getting rid of patients that weren't following your instructions again? You didn't do that your whole career. Why at the end were you suddenly so concerned about lawsuits?

Yeah in sure you were a great doctor. And if people should defer to others if they actually do know more, why is it you don't do that when it comes to the Bible?

In view of the fact that this promise was never fulfilled to Abraham and that his descendants are now scattered among all nations, and are thus to remain until the end of the world, how shall we understand God's promise to Abraham.

To Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many but as of one. unto to they Seed which is Christ. Galatians 3:16

Globalization....

Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization?

Answer: Princess Diana's death.

Question: How come?

Answer: An English princess

with an Egyptian boyfriend

crashes in a French tunnel,

driving a German car

with a Dutch engine,

driven by a Belgian who was drunk

on Scottish whisky,(check the bottle before you change the spelling)

followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,

on Japanese motorcycles;

treated by an American doctor,

using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by an American,

using Bill Gate's technology,

and you're probably reading this on your computer,

that uses Taiwanese chips,

and a Korean monitor,

assembled by Bangladeshi workers

in a Singapore plant,

transported by Indian lorry-drivers,

hijacked by Indonesians,

unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen,

and trucked to you by Mexican illegals.....

That, my friends, is Globalization!

That dude was scared poopless. What was funny was that he didn't even have his legs under him yet, literally, yet he was projecting every threat in the book. He was about as dangerous as a worm. While there, you are aware of situations that evoke certain sense's here, such as humor, but you have to return to this side to really appreciate it.
