But that could only be true if there were no mountains, no valleys, just one big swampy plain. Instead, Isaiah used the word for a flat disc, knowing that that would adequately describe the world that the God of the Bible spread out. Hmmm, rather hard to "spread out" a sphere, but that would be the natural way to speak of a flat object... (Sep 8, 2016 | post #131)
Wow. What a ridiculous answer. They could see mountains, therefore they didn't think the world was flat. Seriously? Calling both a disc and a sphere "round" is just a failure of the language, not a statement of equivalency. You might as well say that the are both blue, so they are the same. A disc is not a sphere, nor does a disc look like a sphere. The fact remains that Isaiah screwed up in writing that the Earth is a disc. But then, that is just one of many flaws with the Bible.

EVERY pregnancy is a risk to the woman's life. While modern medicine greatly reduced this risk, it still exists. For some women the risk is higher than for others. And this is why you have NO business trying to tell any woman they can't choose for themselves whether or not they want to face this risk. (Sep 7, 2016 | post #234218)
Totally false. SCOTUS has never given you any authority over anyone's body but your own. Until a baby has been born, it is part of the woman's body, and none of your business. Even the claims of a state interest at the indefinable point of viability are questionable when compared to the woman's right to autonomy. Neither you nor the government have any right to make a woman chattel to her own body. As long as the fetus is within the woman's body, she is the only person with any right to make any sort of decisions to continue or abort the pregnancy. Eventually, SCOTUS will reach this understanding, unless it is occupied by idiots putting ideology ahead of the Constitution. (Sep 7, 2016 | post #234216)
So? How is one any different from the other? (Sep 7, 2016 | post #234215)
It is not the termination of a life, it is the termination of a pregnancy. Big difference. Something has to have a life before that life can be terminated. (Sep 7, 2016 | post #234214)
False. The Bible shows numerous times when people are called upon, or even required, to kill. Fortunately for people who actually follow the Bible, there is no prohibition against killing, only against murder. Since abortions are legal, by definition they cannot be called murder.

The actual number is 4 out of 5 fertilized eggs never make it to live birth. That is one of the biggest reasons that the anti- choice wackjobs have no valid argument & they have to resort to attempts at emotional argument, like pretending that a fetus is magically equal to a real living person.

It is only in the books of the Bible that survived that He does not have a wife. Those books were heavily edited, but you can still find traces of His wife in a few passages. (Sep 7, 2016 | post #3)
Unfortunately, Isaiah used a word that forms the root of the word for a compass, the tool for geometry used for drawing a FLAT circle. While there are plenty of (very) modern claims that the word also means "sphere" , the fact remains that when it was translated into Greek, they chose to use the Greek word for a flat disc, rather than the word for a sphere eve though the Greeks had already calculated the diameter of a spherical Earth.

The Gospels contradict each other as to the day of the crucifixion, either the day of preparation for the feast of Passover, or the day of Passover itself. Only one can be right, if either are. (Sep 7, 2016 | post #111)

Denying their existence is not the same as debunking them. No matter how many times you want to claim otherwise, the Earth is not flat even though the Bible says it is. (Sep 7, 2016 | post #109)
Pretty sloppy to create a light that spends more time being useless than useful. It is up during the day, or it is only showing a tiny crescent - it is only useful at night for less than a week each month. (Sep 7, 2016 | post #108)
There is no such God as this Jehovah you keep babbling about. The Hebrew alphabet has no "J". (Sep 7, 2016 | post #107)
