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.

I disagree with the two hands and cars of today. Makes you tense and strains your neck. One hand laying on the top of the wheel with arm almost fully extended.

You can finesse it better and interferes with vision less. Makes it so much easier to slalom through traffic.

Years ago there was a fad among some to lean over like you were laying back on a couch toward the passenger side with your left hand draped over the wheel. All so one cool dude looking. Except it looked real dumb seeing some guy with his head under the rear view mirror peeking over the dash while he was slouched over. Haven't seen that in a long time. Maybe Darwin kicked in.

I crawled along backed up xway traffic next to a guy eating his breakfast once. A bowl of cereal in his lap, using both hands, and a knee to steer with. And reading a newspaper.

I drove a van for years with right hand draped over the wheel and left foot crossed up on the dash. Very comfortable. But I had great traffic vision.

That was the way I was driving when the truck hit me. Actually may have saved my life.

How could they "want to be"?!
You either are or you're not, right?
Except when you want to be...
you are so confused about sex and desire.

In most jurisdictions (US & Canada) If you operate a "store front" business you may not discriminate against your clientele, a matter of Law.

That does not remove the Bakery's freedom. They are free to shut down their business whenever they choose.

Did Buck ever say anything to you about his opinion on Citizen's United?
Both you and I asked him for his opinion on the SCOTUS decision. He never responded to me.
But, given the huge number of posts on this thread, I often just skim, using the "find" feature to look for responses to my posts. This would have skimmed over any response he gave to you.
So...did he ever respond?
I believe my last response to Catcher on Citizens United was that I would respond when he admits I am right - that SCOTUS rewrote the First Amendment establishment clause multiple times, which he knows is true.

If I can't get you and him to be honest on the first, I don't see the point of engaging on the second.

Pedophilia is not about sex. Rape is not about sex.
It's about being in control of somebody weaker than you. It has nothing to do with homosexuality or heterosexuality. It is about a weak person preying on a weaker person to prove that they are finally dominant over something. It's abhorrent.

Pedophilia involving a person molesting the same sex is homosexuality, and a homosexual act.
Most pedophilia is of this category.
That is the likely reason there has been an impetus in psychology for delineating a separate category for pedophilia. It's a ruse.
No no no

The two are the same to you?
Your attitude, your language, your history of violence, your ignorance, your bigotry, put them all together and what do we have?

Pretty much a cave dweller, in my view.

But oh gosh, you're trying to be a better person, I know. You're climbing up that tough learning curve. We have to be understanding--as the West Side Story line goes, you're depraved on account of you were deprived.

<quoted text> it seems obvious you were raped, by possibly both men and women. So much for your born that way , who I am theory.
I predict a slurry of posts to follow claiming a man raping a boy is not a homosexual act.

Hiding and I went round on that one for hours.

I destroyed her, of course.

This is called "Federalism", which comes from "foedus", a reference to the tribes of Israel forming a covenant that made them a nation.

Still batting 1000. What else you got?
Looks like you're throwin' spitballs to me.

Foedus is a Latin term meaning "treaty" or "compact" and comes directly from the Roman federated system of dealing with conquered lands.

If this is an example of the "scholarship" of the rest of the piece, then the author is revealed here as a sham and a charlatan. He writes to an audience he believes are ignorant and gullible. Do you use any native discretion at all when reading this crap?

Oh.

I didn't realize you had conceded.

On this one we agree then: It was dishonest for the five majority justices to rule that a corporation is a "person."

Buck...
BTW...you have been pushing originalism and that we should follow the "traditional" interpretations of the Constitution.
Under the original interpretation of the Constitution, only white land owners were allowed to vote. The land owner requirement was not removed until 1850, and it was not by an Amendment to the Constitution.
In other words, for more that 60 years it had been done that way. Then people began to realize that this wasn't the right way to do it, and things changed.
So your "they did it that way for 150 years" argument really doesn't hold water. As they say, the Constitution is a "living document".
That is completely incoherent gibber.

I don't think that can be called a debate.
We really don't need any more exhibitions of how arguments for creationism fail at every opportunity.
Letting people think that Ken Ham isn't a complete moron by giving him a platform will always be a mistake. His opinions about evolution are like the opinions rocks have about geology.
I think Richard Dawkins had a good point. By "debating" creationist, you only give them respectability. The rubes will just be convinced that there really is something to debate.

And on top of this the "debate" is on Ham's home ground, in front of a Ham audience. And the attendees have to pay to get in, and all the money goes to Ham's organizations..
