Even nonmalignant tumors. Remember the woman with the 200 lb tumor? I guess she should have named it and gotten it a SS number. She could have claimed it as a dependent on her taxes. It was bigger than she was.
One of my dogs is undergoing surgery right now for a tumor on her right shoulder/flank area.

When we took her in last month for diagnosis it was conspicuous, but not huge. Three weeks later, today, its grown by another 3 lbs or so. It looks like she swallowed a soccer ball.

But at least, it's benign.

People are generally untrustworthy. The ones I trust I can count on one hand. I find that people are motivated largely by resentment. It is an unspoken motivator, but present in nearly every endeavor.
My experience of life is very different from yours. This is Maslow's hierarchy of needs

[1] Physiological needs - air, water, food, sex, sleep, clothing, and shelter.

[2] Safety and security needs - personal security, financial security, health and well-being, and a safety net against accidents/illness and their adverse impacts

[3] Love and belonging - friendship, intimacy, family, and community

[4] Esteem - the need to be accepted and valued by others, and the need to have self-esteem, and self-respect.

[5] Self-actualization - the full realization of individual potential, morality, creativity, wisdom, and pursuit of truth and justice.

These are the things that Maslow thought motivated people. In interpersonal relationships,[3],[4] and if you reach a state approaching self-perfection,[5] are the motivators. If resentment is a chief motivator for you, something has gone wrong. And if you see resentment as the chief motivator in others, I'd say that you're projecting. I don't see it except in a handful of people, including one regular female theist poster on these threads.

Amen to that. Species go extinct also. There are many species of bird that only lived in the old growth forests. The Ivory Billed Woodpecker is one. The Pileated Woodpecker is close, but not quite as large and robust as the Ivory Billed.
They have done so much pulp wooding around here this year, that our family of Pileated haven't been heard or seen this year.
Fortunately, the Ivory-Billed has been sighted, and verified to still exist, although still in peril. I remembered reading about its rediscovery just a couple of years ago.

Pileated is a great Scrabble word, BTW!

It aint necessarily so wrote:
There is no ethics of atheism.
Sure there are, one of them is called "enlightened self-interest". A sad state of affairs, to be sure. But I'm just a lowly faith based thinker, don't listen to me, listen to your fellow atheists:

http://www.atheists.org/activism/resources/et...
Atheism is the absence of theism, and an atheist is anybody that is not a theist.
So what? It could be an absence of theism, an absence of apple trees or an absence of big toenails. None of that would define it as not having any ethics.
Anything else that is true about an atheist is in addition to his or her atheism, and not essential to it. An atheist can be a secular humanist, a Stalinist, or an astrologer - all are consistent with no god beliefs.
By that crazy definition, a turd is an atheist.
Christianity is a failed ethical system.


Really? This coming from a guy calling a human child a parasite?
I don't take moral advice from Christians any more than I take their opinions about science.


Of course, that's what bigots do.
Christianity teaches defective versions of good, true, right, loving, merciful, and spiritual.
Who is more deceitful than a theist? You begin with a self-deception, then proceed to defend it with more self-deception (confirmation bias), and repeating the untruth to your children and anybody else that will listen. Look at Joyful. She claims to be kind, smart, and a victim of the men that abandoned her and of the Topix posters that return her verbal abuse.


Jabberwocky. You could've just said thatÂ…
You claim that the church doesn't inculcate the faithful with homophobia and that it is generous to the needy.
That's because Christianity doesn't teach homophobia, and it IS generous to the needy.

I'm glad we finally agree.

Can man create anything?
If procreation is not the creation of new life, how can anything we transform and/or assemble be considered a creation?
What, do you think the mother and/or father of the baby get inside the uterus and actually assemble it and/or transform it?

Your line of questioning is getting a little topsy-turvy, Chewy.

You cannot escape the fact that men and women do not create babies, we reproduce them. After the man ejaculates his sperm into the vaginal canal, it becomes autonomic.

What's up?

Is this what you say when you can't pass something off as a law that's been "fulfilled" (whatever that's supposed to mean)?

Fact: The Bible says that we are not alive until we breathe.

Like I said, I can't blame you for not believing what the Bible says and that you find the explanation from science too compelling.

No. I'd call it a smaller and less developed member of a pair of unequal conjoined twins.

That makes no sense since God doesn't exist, right? Or did your filthy angered life just admit in a blasphemous way that God does exist?
