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.

That's not Darwinism. Chrissy said the church accepted Darwinism. They did not.
Thanks for the wasted effort.

What is the point of having a wager if one is omniscient? Furthermore, are you suggesting that it's OK to torture and kill people for the sake of an experiment? Is it moral to murder ten innocent children as long as they are replaced by ten more later? How does that work?
It was to prove a mans faith to Satan. Satan thought Job would reject God over hardship. Even his wife said Curse God and die already. Job prevailed much to satans chagrin . Btw satan is not omniscient, he even claimed if he knew the work of Jesus he would not have crucified him. what a sucker.

My apologies for scrolling past your seemingly infinite pages of superfluous posts. Had you not brought this to my attention I might have failed to remember your name, and that you also contended.

Congratulations on your win. My bad.

I was not implying that Satan was omniscient. If God is omniscient, then what is the point of a bet? Moreover, why would God feel obliged to prove anything to Satan, especially if it involved murdering ten innocent children? How can that possibly be viewed as loving or moral?

But Jesus makes no differentiation about some wealth being OK; he said very clearly that Heaven is barred to everyone who is rich, regardless.
There will be no rich people and their attitudes or having the better in heaven. They cant buy a liver, or escape justice or get better seats etc. You leave here naked and if you were rich, which I suppose every American is in relative terms, it would have been wise for you to have gotten it honestly and then been rich towards God in your stewardship of it. To he who much is given much is expected.

So it's wrong because it's "unnatural"? That's clearly circular reasoning. As for whether it's genetic or not, how do you know it's not? Have you presented your scientific paper on the subject for peer-review and publication yet? And even if it were purely choice, what difference would that make? You still haven't established why homosexuality is bad, except to say that it's wrong because it's wrong.
And since you claim it's a choice, does that imply that you could choose to be gay? How is it you know how being gay works better than gay people themselves? I'd be very interested to learn how that works.

So slavery is OK if there are even more immoral things afoot? Wha?
<quoted text>
Women are of less worth than men? What's the rationale for that?
<quoted text>
I see. So it would be beneficial for you to be sold as a slave if your owner was wealthier than you, correct?
1) Its natural for a man to have love for another man. Where does homo start, with anal sex? Tell me how your ass is designed for intercourse. I don't know how gay works but I know what the maker of man says. I also know its caused by strong delusion and family dynamics . Even latent homos who just cant "handle" women. 2) Only the poor sold a female into slavery. They surely probably got a better ;life. Why are females of less value, Theyre the weaker but you may want to consult the Chinese on that.

That's the problem.

A smart conservative woman who speaks her mind is a paradigm-buster for libs like Catcher and Wild Rice. Conservatives are supposed to oppress women.

Same goes for smart conservative black people. That's why they hate Clarence Thomas.

And Ted Cruz.(part hispanic)

Liberal paradigm busters.

The vitriol comes from her outspoken conservative views. Only Maher, Maddow, Matthews, Olberman, etc. etc. Can express their views. Republican (and most especially Republican women) must keep their mouths shut or have themselves and their families belittled to no end.

Its just the liberal way........

So the referee can say a touchdown counts for 10 points. That's just "interpreting" the rule book.
I see.
Thanks for another clarification.
I wonder if you're just being contrary, or thick?

I'd like to think you're just being contrary, for your own amusement. Please don't clarify, leave me my fantasy that you're an intelligent being, and just arguing for it's own sake. First, Santa ain't real, then the Bible stories, now this. I don't think I could take another disappointment.

Just in case - there's the framework established by the Constitution, then there's the laws that conform to that Constitutional framework, then there's the rules of a cross-cultural game that have nothing to do with that Constitution.

So, no, the ref can't say a TD counts for 10, and keep his job.

Only his firing might have some bearing on Constitutional protections. Somehow. I'm sure some labor lawyer could think of something. But there's no connection between the rules of a cross-cultural game, and the fluid and dynamic interpretation of the Constitution through the years.

Only someone thick in the head would think it does, and be serious.
