Another stretch on your part.
Sweetie, let me give you a clue that you may take into consideration in your quest to conquer the world for your ideals.
You profess a certain affinity for BDSM. You profess a certain self image as being a dominatrix. You act shocked that I would disagree with your intentions as to the betterment of mankind, etc, etc.
One could think you are on a power trip. Many could believe you aren't exactly trustworthy in upholding the rights of mankind, specifically those that don't agree with you.
Put some more makeup on.
:-)
.. I'm really not into S&M but bondage is great fun, just ask Buck. What's your problem with that ??..

.. and, please, don't call me Sweetie, OK? I see through that and understand your intent ..

.. makeup? Yes, love it! Would you like to send me some Bobbi Brown lipstick or Estee Lauder anti-oxidant creme ??..

.. thanks for addressing most of my questions ..
Sho nuff.
.. the 1st Commandment is the edict of an Abrahamic God, instructs people to follow no other God and orders the Sabbath be kept holy ..
No. The 4th Commandment talks about the Sabbath, not the 1st.
.. it does not allow for the beliefs or non-beliefs of others including Hindus, African Diasporics, Buddhists, Aborigines, Gnostics or atheists and is extrinsic to the application of law ..
Correct. That's why it says to worship oy God.
.. if placed on the wall of a federal judicial system grounded in law, it endorses and promotes the Abrahamic God ..
Not by Congress, it doesn't.
.. our forefathers could not foresee the growth of atheism in America. When the morphology of society changes, laws must change ..


Why?
.. "a reminder of our greatest obligation - the worship (of) God?" No, that is not my greatest obligation, nor do I think it your's. Presently, I think your greatest obligation is to provide your children with a roof over their heads, food on the table, clothes on their backs and mature guidance ..
I don't care if it's your greatest obligation or if it's mine.

The point was that it's Christianity's greatest obligation and we like seeing the 10 Commandments at courthouses and Crosses on hills.

Christians are still the vast majority in America and that's unlikely to change soon.

"The law of Thelema is "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. Love is the law, love under will." The law of Thelema was developed by Aleister Crowley, the early 20th-century British writer and ceremonial magician"

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

"The first pressings of the album included the phrases "So mote be it" (not to be confused with "So mote it be".) Then later on included the phrase "Do what thou wilt", inscribed on the lacquer itself by engineer Terry Manning during the final mastering process.[citation needed] This phrase is identical to one in the core tenet of Aleister Crowley's philosophy of Thelema: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. Love is the law, love under will. There is no law beyond do what thou wilt." But it also the same as a portion of a variant of the Wiccan Rede. Page was a scholar of Crowley's work, once owning a private collection of Crowley manuscripts, artwork and other ephemera, and in the 1970s even bought one of his residences, Boleskine House on the shores of Loch Ness in Scotland.[citation needed]"

The accurate description of radiation is not a 'prediction'.

The problem is, no one predicted another culture becoming exactly what the Alien did. Thousands of years before it happened.

No, not in the least.

It's illegal to own, buy, sell or be a slave in the US.

It's not illegal to have religious icons in public places.

You think you have an analogy but you don't.

They are, as the saying goes, "sitting on the fence".

I did not say life cannot come from non-life. What I said is it has never been observed in the known history of the world, and there is no evidence that it has ever occurred.
Is a god life? If so, how old is it? Infinitely old?
Buck Crick wrote:
Abiogenesis is possible only in the same sense that almost anything is possible.
Abiogenesis is one of only two possible explanations for something that has actually occurred. That makes it a fact if the other explanation - divine creation of life - can be ruled out.

Divine creation has also never been observed. Nor has divinity.

Civil rights are about people's rights to political and social freedom and equality.

Good post.
Thanks, buddy.

And sorry for the delay in responding, I have been very busy today, working on Constitutional issues as a matter of fact.

Hey, have you heard of the Fourteenth Amendment? The "logic" of your posts indicates you're not familiar with it.

Ah. Got it. So the Christian groups in opposition to the theory of evolution are lying. Thank you for that admission. And this includes, btw, the Discovery Institute.
My point was it is always best to go to the source as opposed to hostile groups for definitions. The fact evos continually lump both biblical creationists and IDers in the same category is a distortion. Not good to go to an evo source for definitions on IDers. Perhaps you can show some examples of IDers lying about evos.? The point being i have shown you exactly how evos distort ID but you have not reciprocated. You assume since the one distorts so must the other. Provide some examples. If you read the site i posted you would know it makes statements about neo Darwinism. For example.

http://www.discovery.org/csc/topQuestions.php
----------
However, the dominant theory of evolution today is neo-Darwinism, which contends that evolution is driven by natural selection acting on random mutations, an unpredictable and purposeless process that "has no discernable direction or goal, including survival of a species." (2000 NABT Statement on Teaching Evolution). It is this specific claim made by neo-Darwinism that intelligent design theory directly challenges. For a more thorough treatment see the article "Meanings of Evolution" by Center Fellows Stephen C. Meyer & Michael Newton Keas.

----------

It also references their information. You state they lie but you do not provide examples. Was it you who stated you teach or taught? Would you accept that kind of sloppy work from your students?
And thank you for these showing us these lies being passed out by the DI. Again, thank you. You are doing a good job of proving my contentions. I appreciate it.
All you have is accusations. You do not provide any examples to back up your claims. You must believe the accusation is the equivalent of conviction. I asked you what part of their statement did you not understand and you failed to answer.

Yes, a state can take actions, even in its constitution, that violate the U.S. Constitution.

Some of this pedantic stuff that Buck mentions are generally dismissed as de minimus, like the language in our currency. Technically it shouldn't be there of course, but there are far bigger battles to be waged.

You are overreaching trying to justify your ideology's usurping provisions of the Constitution. Besides using extreme examples you are also trying to establish a right of the government to take proactive actions to prevent maybes and could be, and etc. Those maybe and could be arguments lead to tyranny of the masses, not a democratic process.
Your political philosophy is snake oil.
You deal with problems that arise in a democratic society, not establish a system designed to choke off change. Your leaders of that movement are no different than any other group that seeks and attempts to hold power by threat of law.
Move to another state for protection and be a political activist within Utah and have the people themselves change their government. You are calling in bullies from other areas to effect your desired changes. They will eventually bully you, also.
I think it's serpent oil, not snake oil.

Leave Dave alone.
