Gun Control - Clarksburg, WV

Very well stated, some people fail to keep in mind that when our founding fathers instituted the second amendment they just got finished fighting a war against a tyranical state militia and realized they may have to do it again at some point  (Feb 1, 2013 | post #19)

Gun Control - Clarksburg, WV

Guns are an equalizer, they allow that 110 lb. woman to stand a chance when she is about to get mugged by a 210 pound man. If they were to be banned the only people to be in possession of them would be the criminals as their very name implies they do not obey the law. Such a ban would guarantee more unarmed helpless law abiding citizens  (Jan 29, 2013 | post #13)

What do u think of Jesus Christ?(God)

You mean professional hel for a supposed mental illness that the most authoritative source you can cite on the matter is facebook? Stop trying to dodge questions, you said no serrious historian believes Jesus existed. I named the two historians (in title only) that believe he doesn't that I'm aware of and I know there are far more historians specializing in antiquities than that and far more theologians and I know of no college texts or professors that perpetuate the JNE thesis. That isn't the majority, it's not even marginal, it's a fringe notion and the majority of the academic world think to be ridiculous.  (Jan 27, 2013 | post #76617)

Of all the historians who study antiquities the only ones who subscribe to the JNE thesis are Kenneth Humphreys (who has a book to sell and that is pretty much all he does, he has no other involvement in the profession) and Richard Carrier who is only a partial subscriber. This hardly accounts for the majority of historians who study antiquities nor the theologians of today all of which to varying degrees accept the existence of Jesus. They may dispute his divinity and maybe even his deeds or words but one thing that no historian questions is his existence (outside of the two I named). I challenge you to name more historians than them to account for the majority or name one campus in the world where this fringe theory is taught as the only truth and I guarantee you will not. As far as never a need for the term atheist, is that why you used it in your old username? Either way the word atheist is recognized in every English dictionary and institute of higher learning. If you have a problem with it take it up with them, write your congressperson, whatever I don't care.  (Jan 26, 2013 | post #76615)

So why are these so-called historical facts not reflected in any of todays texts which are used to educate historians studying antiquities? Why are is this Christ myth theory brushed off as fringe nonsense by every serrious historian and theologian today? Or to paraphrase yourself: look the atheist bigot resorted to an ad hominem rather than answer the question.  (Jan 26, 2013 | post #76609)

Michael Lockwood was a philosophy major, went to be an assistant instructor, turned around and went to work as a systems analyst for the stock exchange and now teaches on philosophical logic, medical ethics, and animal rights. I must have missed his credentials as a theologian or a historian. Why is it those people never write about Jesus not existing? Why wouldn't an atheist historian like Bart Ehrman who stopped believing in God a long time ago? If there is such strong compelling evidence then why don't modern theology/history class and experts reflect this and why do these "revelations " stay in the fringes of academic society in the forms of internet movies and books that in some cases can only be published by the authors themselves  (Jan 26, 2013 | post #76598)

Heat Pumps

My furnace gave out and I got a Mr. Heater big buddy from Walmart for about $120. You also have to get a propane tank, hose, bulk adapter and D cell batteries for the blower (or just buy the ac adapter for $18 on amazon). Overall you are looking about $200 but that thing can put out up to 9k btu so its well worth it. So far I've gotten by with running it on low and it's in the upper 60's in my house.  (Jan 25, 2013 | post #3)

Jesus didn't die for animals sins but then again who says animals sin? As far to our knowledge they did not eat from the tree as Adam and Eve did, and as far as animal possessing a soul the Bible is silent on this as well so the most intellectually honest answer is that we don't know and as far as we know animals never ate from the tree and do not know sin amd therefore would they not act just as God intended (barring ramifications of living in a fallen creation)? I think you owe Serah an apology and you may wish to more carefully consider issues which the Bible is silent on. I don't know for certain if animals sin or have souls but I suspect they don't sin and they do have souls but that is just based on my observations. I do not pretend to know God's will  (Jan 25, 2013 | post #76579)

I suppose it would be up to the various media outlets to make the decision if they wanted to report on anything so I would suggest talking to them about it.  (Jan 24, 2013 | post #14)
