Because hundreds of millions of other Christians disagree with you.

When you all agree on "God's Word" then we might think you aren't all making shit up.

The "Christ Mass" of The RCC is a completely different thing.
I'm talking about Christmas, not any other holiday.

The ancient Europeans celebrated the long days of winter.

In Scandinavia, the Norse celebrated Yule.

In Germany, people honored the pagan god Oden.

In Rome, they honored Saturn, Juvenalia & Mithra.

Then Jesus was born. And for 400 years, His birth wasn't celebrated, only His resurrection - Easter.

Pope Julius adopted Dec 25th in an attempt to absorb the already celebrated Dec 25th holiday, Saturnalia.

And here we are today, 1600 years later and Christmas is THE most celebrated holiday in the world.

What it WAS is not what it IS.

Skom, brain is mind, mind is brain. If your brain can be manipulated to produce the emotional responses we're talking about, then we understand how the emotional responses work.
Guessing doesn't help us here. We can guess all we like, but only the actual experiments will tease out precisely which brain areas and neurotransmitters are relevant to which emotional states.
It would still require honest feedback from the participant and would be extremely limited as far as what situations could be recreated in a controlled environment. Under a less than ethical study could we manipulate the brain with certain stimuli to see what areas are effected during what emotions? Sure. Would it even show levels? Probably. Would this have any practical real life application? No

I mean if the question is, can we measure rage and love?

And the answer is either NO

Or

Well if we created a controlled environment during an unethical setting with limited things we can test and manipulated the brain we can measure emotions to a certain degree in unnatural situations

I personally would go with "NO"

Just seems like some pretty elaborate scenario can always be concocted to answer a question differently. Although maybe the easiest thing to do would be just change the question to "can they be measured naturally through observable behavior" and to that the answer would be "NO"

I don't care if they disagree with me.

I'm right.

If challenge any Christian to biblically defend ANYTHING in Leviticus that applies to ANY Christian.

And I'd win that challenge.

I argue that nothing in the OT after Mt. Sinai apples to anyone but Hebrews and never has and never will. The Gentiles are under 'Noahide' laws that apply to all mankind and are fully compatible with what Jesus taught.

Ok, just on the baby then. Got it.
I'm sorry to disagree with you, but...

I have two sons.

That means I had 'babies', not 'baby'.

And don't you dare give me no crap about a little tap on the butt for discipline when you defend abortion so self-righteously.

Good morning.
THAT was an excellent paragraph.
I applaud you.
It's true. There's no two ways about it. People in their specialties are the experts.

If you think that I defer to education, you're mistaken. I've yelled at Oxford anthropologists at professional conferences for making utterly stupid and incorrect statements - that got me into trouble, btw. In fact, I have less tolerance at scientific conferences than here because the minimum requirements for presentation there are that you're actually producing science.

I have issues with people promoting ignorance as some kind of badge. It's not. I expect people to be honest with regards to the boundaries of their knowledge - but people aren't. Such people require criticism.

(and at a science conference, I expect science, not false, impossible claims)

You already lost it for the last 1700 years. You are in the minority. Convince them, not me.

Then either I misunderstand your "elitist" comments or you misrepresent them.

Please, keep this in mind when debating on Topix: We are not your colleagues and we are not all college edumacated.

I completely understand your frustration at your conferences. I've been to similar conferences, concerning building materials or new products, etc. Several times I had to stop the 'instructor' and correct him on what he's saying (incorrectly) to the crowd.

In that regard, I guess neither you or I can tolerate ignorance, respectively of course.
