Religious or not, cheating on your spouse is complete bullshit. It makes me a little weary that Topix accepted them as a customer....
What, did you think that the owners of topix were paragons of moral virtue? They're here to make money.

I agree though, ashley madison is quite a tasteless site. A "planned affair" sought out on an affair site kinda seems worse than a "spontaneous affair" also. Random thought.

What do you mean religious or not?

It is very simple to do. Go to tools/addons/get addon. Enter Adblock into the search. When Adblock Plus 2.4 shows up hit the install button. It will install automatically. Then hit the install button for the Adblock Pop up addon. It will then install automatically and say you have to hit restart, and a restart now link will appear. Hit that link, Firefox will restart and save whatever you had automatically, and you will will see no more ads like that one. Accept whatever defaults it may ask for during the process. You can change those in the preferences section of those addons, but you don't usually need to. You would only do so if it interferes with accessing some sites. There is a tracking and ad directing site called outbrain.com that may give you a problem with some sites. They are being heavily used now, especially by news sites. There are some others that do that also. You will see them being called by the web site script on the bottom left of Firefox. Those scripts call up tracking sites, images, and all sorts of things. Why some pages are slow. Who they are linking to for a script or service can hang a lot of sites up if they are overloaded.
Also -

Other nice things to have if you are interested in online privacy is an app called "noscripts" and an app called "donottrackme." They can also cause issues with certain sites, but you can set it to allow certain sites or to be more permissive during individual browsing sessions. And for ultimate privacy, get the tor browser bundle. It is easy to install and use even for non technical people.

That is only your opinion.

There's likely just as many "studies" that show prayer works as opposed to prayer doesn't work.
I think the reason why is that we humans have not figured out that the only available technology to truly test it is the most advanced computer on the planet - human mind.
<quoted text>
There's no apologetic needed.
Jesus said that to the man on the cross next to Him.
They both died that day.
Actually, there aren't "just as many" positive result prayer studies. There are a couple of questionable veracity, but the deck is heavily slanted in favor of prayer not working.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efficacy_of_pray...

I find it hilarious that one of the go to excuses for the failure of prayer studies is that "god cannot be coerced."

Like "ha! Those stupid humans are trying to test whether or not this poor, cancer stricken man's prayer will help him? He's dead!" Lol. Your god is a tricky one.

If he was talking to the man on the cross, why would he say "some of you?"

"we" know that prayer doesn't work? Who's "we"?? I know that prayer works, I've had prayers answered.
Are you referring to Matthew 16?“Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”
Do you want me to explain that to you, too? Or are you happy being ignorant about it?
the meaning is clear.

Matthew 16:28  Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
He WAS talking to his disciples.
None of them lived to see this promise/prophecy.
I understand how you could be mistaken. It’s pretty common with religionists and their beliefs.
Christians need all the apologists they can assemble because there are so many problems with the Bible and the living of their beliefs.
You take care my friend.
OMG. Oops. I mixed up the two verses we were talking about. I was referring to what Jesus said in Luke, "Truly I tell you today you will be with me in paradise". That's my bad, sorry.

As far as that verse in Matthew goes, they did see Jesus in His kingdom. Some of them watched it. I fail to understand your conundrum.

Jesus did exist.

Now let me tell you why generation doesn't really mean generation. You see, in the original text, the word for generation is "ballsachek," and can mean generation in the typical sense, and it can also mean generation in the sense that we can apply whatever meaning we want to it and therefore elude any responsibility for our prophet's inability to keep a promise.
Generation is translated properly.'This generation' is translated properly, too. You don't understand what He meant by 'this generation'.

Jesus was talking about the end times.'This generation' refers to the generation of the ends times, not the veneration they were in at that moment.
Also, let me share with you some contradictory statements that, to any rational human being, would cast doubt on their source, but are in actuality the lifeblood of biblical analysis. You see, jesus also said that no man knows the day and the hour, even though he also said that he would come back before a generation passed. Obviously, we can ignore the latter promise, and latch on to the former statement, because if we didn't then we might have to face a hard truth.
See?

"he said that he would come back before a generation passed."

That isn't what He said.

I told ya you didn't understand.

I pointed it out because I was genuinely curious as to why you do it. Even if I was to accept your explanation - that you do it to "bother people" - that would not reflect kindly upon your character. That's called trolling.
I don't buy that though. I think you do it because you think it's clever to emphasize the "otherness" of obama. If romney's middle name was hussein, would you call him that?
Yes.

In your free time are you studying for a degree in theology and biblical study?

Of course, how you have any free time I really don't understand because you're always either.....ahem- "working" or here on Topix.

But somehow I guess you manage to be going for that degree because it seems that you think only your interpretation of the bible and scripture is correct since you seem to find everyone else's interpretation to be wrong- including that of the many biblical scholars in this world.

Yep you're a busy man, RR.

Notice he was not talking from the cross.
I think he (if he actually existed) was lying. Certainly Luke, or whoever wrote this was.
The Christian religion is man-made-up....just like all the others.
It makes it easy to discount the Bible when you cherry pick it like that.

You quoted Luke 9 26-27. Why stop there? Keep reading and you'll have your answer.

Luke 9:28-31 It explains Jesus coming in glory.

"And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:
Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem."

Simple, yes?
