US Military Oath of Enlistment:
"So help me God"
Optional, esp. in US Army.

http://photobucket.com/images/applause...

While federal law does not appear to make any part of the oath optional (see Title 10, Section 502 of the United States Code), military regulations often do. For example, the Army enlistment regulation (see Army Regulation 601-210, paragraph 6-18) makes the portion "So help me God" optional.

And military academy:
http://www.militarytimes.com/article/20131025...

The Air Force Academy on Friday announced that it will now be optional for cadets to recite “so help me God” at the end of its honor oath.

The academy made the change in response to a complaint from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which advocates for the separation of church and state in the military.

........and more interesting reading further along.

That would be a 12% per annum rate on savings. Not happening these days.

Closer to a penny a year - regular savings, if that.

Thanks. I transferred it intact to my files for reposting.
I'll bet the farm that after demanding proof, the moron reads almost none of it. dismisses all of it out of hand, and persists in his faith based position. But he did us a service. Now we all have a nice collection of articles on the topic
Here's a token of my appreciation: scriptures that contradict the Christiandoctrine of free will, which is essential to the doctrine of original sin and the need for redemption through crucifixion and resurrection.
NO FREE WILL
[1] "Only, let every one lead the life which the Lord has assigned to him, and in which God has called him" (1 Cor. 7:17)
[2] "According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,.... Having predestinated us...(Eph. 1:4-5)
[3] "... to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be....whom he did predestinate,..." (Rom. 8:28-30)
[4] "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails" (Prov. 19:21)
[5] "....we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of God...after the counsel of his own will" (Eph. 1:11)
[6] "Man's days are determined; you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed" (Job 14:5)
[7] "...your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be" (Psalm 139:16)
[8] "A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps" (Prov. 16:9)
[9] "He will carry out what he has planned for me, and of many such matters He is mindful" (Job 23:14)
[10] "Man's goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way?" (Prov. 20:24)
Glad to add to the collection of knowledge, or assemblage thereof, as it were.

Thank you, too.

Yes, we were discussing different religions being taught in schools and those are not just high school courses. Those four classes I mentioned are taught in grade school, junior high, and high school.

Well, the science says that Adam and Eve, as written in the Bible, did not exist.

That means that Jesus died for a metaphor......

you're talking to someone who has actually witnessed the birth of a human being, and i'm here to tell you it came from it's mother's womb after the seed of a man was planted in it!
so you can take your "settled science" ('settled' by a team of demoniac gaytheists) and shove it up yur @ss!;-)
And you're talking to someone who has witnessed the birth of 4 human beings and held the hand of 2 people as they died.

None of this negates the FACT that Adam and Eve never existed, and that Jesus died for a metaphor.

Try a Roth IRA or a CD instead of a regular savings account.

And stop being so literal, the penny thing was a figure of speech, like a day late a dollar short.

i can prove through historic geneologies that adam and eve did exist and you can't prove they didn't.

now that you've been proven a liar and have been humbled, your next step toward honesty and integrity is to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord:-)

I'm pretty sure that genealogies can only be traced as far back as the Anglo-Saxon kings of the eighth century.

Just sayin.

I have not been proven a liar. That part of Christianity has been PROVEN to be false.

Your 'historic genealogies' mean nothing, they are but bits of papyrus with no real provable provenance to back them up.

The science behind the proof that Adam and Eve never existed however is repeatable and testable.

This is going to be another one of those cases where the Church is going to try and fight science, and lose AGAIN.
