Hmmmm....never thought of it that way, although I do remember some posts that put "Christian" against "Christian".

Unfounded beliefs in a religion that divides, sums it up rather politely.

As for you claiming I was in error, please, show how.
A 2009 Brazilian study found that female rats fed GM soy for 15 months showed significant changes in their uterus and reproductive cycle, compared to rats fed organic soy or those raised without soy. The glyphosate in the soybeans is believed to be the cause of the problem as it throws off the delicate hormonal balance that governs the whole reproductive cycle.

No increase in yields: GMO soy decreased yields by up to 20 percent compared with non-GMO soy, and up to 100 percent failures of GMO cotton have been recorded in India.

In a 2009 French study, scientists discovered that glyphosate can kill the cells in the outer layer of the human placenta (the trophoblast membrane), which in turn can kill the placenta. Only 1/500th the amount needed to kill weeds was able to kill the cells. The amount is so small, according to the study authors, the "residual levels to be expected, especially in food and feed derived from Roundup formulation-treated crops" could be enough to "cause cell damage and even [cell] death."

A Canadian epidemiological study, which looked at nearly 4,000 pregnancies in 1,898 couples, women exposed to glyphosate during the three months before getting pregnant had a significantly higher risk of miscarriages, especially for those above 34 years of age. Fathers who were exposed to glyphosate before their wives got pregnant showed an increase in early delivery and spontaneous abortions.

No reduction in pesticide use: USDA data showed that GMO crops increased pesticide use by 50 million pounds from 1996 to 2003 in the United States.

GMO crops harm wildlife: Wastes from GMO corn impairs the growth of aquatic insects.

GMO food and feed have been linked to deaths and sicknesses: Both in the fields of India, and in lab tests around the world.

GMO food has also now been linked to Cancer.

GMO have created super-viruses.

GMO food has been linked to sterility.

GMO’s also contribute to environmental damages.

The list goes on and on. There is not one single advantage to using GMO's.

There is already enough food to feed 10 Billion people. GMO's are not needed.
I beg to differ on that, Mylan. Though we now waste a lot of food and the earth can produce more than it does now, there is a finite limit to how many humans the earth can support, using only the earth's resources. Millions in the world starve annually now, but that is mainly due to very corrupt and/or incompetent governments in the countries that have food shortages and/or famine. We have to not denude our land of trees due to their conversion of oxygen and carbon dioxide, but if we were to take the available land and grow only garden crops, and destroy all domestic and wild animals, so they don't damage or eat the garden crops, then we could likely feed a lot more than we do now, but all diets would have to be supplemented by some things we can't get from plants.

We also would have a very boring and not as tasty a diet as we have with some animal products as at least part of our diet. Food transportation costs would escalate using up non-renewable fuels (except if we can convert all forms of transportation to use energy not derived from fuels in the ground, such as sunlight, wind, wave action, etc.). Usage would escalate due to so many parts of the earth being able to grow food only during a few months of warm or hot weather, thus requiring more transportation of food around the world to fill in the gaps where winter deprives us of the ability to grow food.

I am open to others expressing lots of disagreement about the above, as I am somewhat winging it.

I did not run, I went coz i needed space and i didn't want any trouble. He did no such thing! His 'mates' started calling me names. I didn't bring anyone into it, he did!!!

Thanks, i'm calm now and just enjoying the present, whatever will be will be!!

There was a survey that was done and it showed that what the average person in India ate in a month, The average American ate in a week or something like that. They were comparing daily food intake of people in different countries.

I totally agree, nature is so kind, it gave us everything for free, if it's running out it's our fault, we are using way too much of the natural resources, coz we greedy pigs who don't understand ourselves or anything around us, we just think we clever and we are doing so well but the truth is that we r going sooo downhill it's scary!!!

.... and now you are making the fallacy of equivocation. You should be above this sort of fallacy, especially one that includes so much misrepresentation of facts. Here is a question you completely failed to address:

WHICH genetically modified products?

That's a very specific question, because ALL corn is genetically modified, well, all yellow corn. All bananas are genetically modified, the edible ones that is.... and there are a lot more such foods. Thus you have to establish not only the specific species, the result of genetic modification in other words, but also the specific method, of which there are hundreds. Then you must, it's a requirement before making any such claim, provide evidence that it was nothing else being the cause. If this requirement is not met, we would have to ban water.

One of the greatest scientists who has developed some of the best genetically modified wheat and other foods does not work for a corporation, but because of idiotic paranoid freaks he is forced to depend on the corporations for financial support, which is why his GMO crops are not used to feed hungry people but are instead used to produce profit by selling it all to you. If you hated corporations so much, you'd never spend any money in the store again, ever. Otherwise you are supporting these corporations you claim are "evil" when you use money.

Some Christians, in fact most I know, are honest. Patty has proved many times here that not only is she not honest, but it seems she is incapable of being honest, but since Jesus has paid her 'sin debt' she can break the laws of God, and is already forgiven because she has accepted the likely mythical Jesus, as her Savior. PLH claims to be a Christian, and I am not aware that she is not honest, based on what I have observed here.

Many of the others here claiming to be Christians are falsely claiming that so they also are not honest. Many of them also are not here to discuss the stated topics, but rather just to annoy other posters - eg RR, nano, Brian.

But the parents, in most cases, are adults, and the kids, in all cases will not always do the right thing. Hitting child only scares nd confuses them, qnd hurts them physically. I confessed to having fallen vicitim to the same mistreatment of my kids, but I am not proud of it nor do i condone my behavior. It was immature of me to do that, and had I to do it over again, I would definitely not do what I infrequently did with them.
A small child relative to a parent would be equivalent to you and a giant of say 12 feet or more, weighing maybe 1/4 ton, having perhaps 100 times your strength.
Do you feel that being picked up by that giant and administered, relatively speaking, a spanking at your size and age, would be considered appropriate behavior, or would it be behavior that would and should put that giant behind bars for a good number of years?
The law doesn't even allow criminals to be treated that way in the USA, according to my knowledge.
Sorry booots.... I don't consider it mistreatment when spanking is done as a training tool to correct the child's behavior with no malice, no hatred or intent to injure. Mistreatment will occur when any parent doesn't understand the difference and if it is the spanking that caused harm then the issue isn't the spanking at that point, but the individual parent's mental or emotional state.
I guess that simply means that if a parent has anger issues and/or can't distinguish the difference or is afraid to discipline their child in that manner,...... then maybe they shouldn't be spanking their kids. Perhaps they should try something that doesn't make the parent feel guilty.
I personally have no remorse or feel that anything was done incorrectly and neither do the other 64% of parents polled in the august 1st 2011 NIH study on spanking.
Also, boots.... if your children see you as an angry 12 foot 1/4 ton giant then maybe the problem is with that parent to begin with not teaching their children that what the child is looking at is a loving, caring, smiling but firm parent and not on Ogre. And the only victim here is parent who is only guilty of self guilt.
Parenting is a very fine line and not all parents have the same abilities, patience or gifts of others. Spanking alone does not determine if someone is a fit parent or not.
