Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Over taxation has consequences both futile and dire , there are limitations even the rulers cannot cross without creating a vacuum
for the existence of those who will defy them.
The prohibition and depression taught us that, so unless you want to have gangland rules again, you cannot tax something or outlaw something out of existence. You only create a black market.
Oh goody I can't wait till we legislate profiteering into existence again!

WHAT JESUS has done for me.

Helped me survive a mother who hated EVERYONE else outside her own mirror (a big one).

Helped me survive a father who knew not love.

Helped me survive abuse/sexual/mental/of every kind.

Helped me survive hate from mom while DAD still at least tried to be good.

Helped me survive being tossed to and fro while mom was whoring around and Dad worked.

Helped me survive Dad not being around enough. I needed and LOVED his love.

Helped me survive mom pushing all her burdens onto my small shoulders.

Helped me survive trying to love and raise mom's family.

Helped me survive when mom finally left us for the boy (19) next door.

Helped me survive the suicide of my little brother when I was 15 on mom's birthday.

Helped me survive the rejection of mom and Dad barely had time. I was the house keeper and mind of the childen. No baby dolls for me.

Helped me survive my Dad's second marriage, wife and mother and father and three unruled and hateful children. Their father turned out to be gay. His children (sons - 2) tried to survive sexual abuse from him and his one daughter just cried like a girl does at times when allowed to.

Helped me survive the day her youngest (21) Peter took his life with another of Dad's rifles. Dad wanted so to adopt this boy. Like Scott and scarey in ways how so.

Helped me survive having no mother to grow up with and Dad could only do so much for a girl who didn't know what was happening when I saw Blood.

JESUS BLOOD wasn't yet visible to me.

There's more. Another suicide - big brother BUDDY, Dad died Fourth of July two years ago, MOM still loves to hate me the best. She wanted JESUS to make her me.

Jesus helps me survive HATE and do it ALONE outside of Jesus's touch. Want some more WITCH. Oh wait - that's just a touch of what JESUS helped me survive.
PEACE - I'm just only understanding the practice of it. I need the true believers because You are like the church - they taught me hate too. For people Witch just like you. JESUS said it different. I read it every day! I can't get enough - I'm weak and Jesus lifts me when I need it the most. I still suffer Witch. How about you? Please take your hands off of JESUS children! Thank you for allowing me to share. Have some fun with you cut and paste talent against that TRUTH!

JESUS/WORD - your words sad and Witch - what is your first name? Excuse me please for barging in. See this witch tried to teach me a thing or two IT thought I didn't know about LIARS. Wrong - I know.

What we really need to tax is cheese burgers and french fries. Heart attacks and diabetes would drop like a rock.

The lobster is known as a living fossil. Because it has been unchanged in over 100 million years. Now if evolution is such a sure thing. Why has the lobster remained unchanged?

The earth has changed, climate has changed, a lot has happened in 100 million years. Yet the lobster remains unchanged.

They are found in all then oceans.

Did evolution really happen? Not to the lobster.

This fossil crustacean found in Mexico's Chiapas state in 1995 has now been confirmed as the world's oldest lobster, according to scientists at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)(map of Chiapas).
The ancient animal has been dated at 110 million years old—about 20 million years older than previously known specimens—UNAM scientists announced in a press release on Monday.

From fossils you can tell that something that looks like a modern lobster existed back then. You can not tell that they are genetically the same species. This is simply impossible. Deal with it!!
