Hey, you know about the Prime Directive... but hey... ;-)
I don't know what that means. Some people have the opinion that certain races are superior to others. You're saying that if I find that abhorrent and cease contact with them, I'm in the wrong? That makes no sense. We are allowed to take a stand sometimes.
How do you perceive/argue Mormonism is becoming less American?
It's Make America Great Again, NOT make the rest of the world great again.....
Is there context to this? lol
very good. How many books are in the bible? To you think this number is a coincidence or might has some meaning as to the nature of scripture?
"God only uses what we give Him"
We're talking Bible archaeology. You're talking about your personal incredulity.
why? there is no evidence that extension and preservation of life is an objective good. some people don't like such a thing, or only like it conditionally.
Yup. So many of them .
Your math is off and its worse than 43% of the crimes are committed by 13% of the black population. That percentage is higher among blacks with real serious violent crime. But break it down further. Half that 13% are woman. Lets say 6%. Half that is older men and the very young. Half that is just good people . Half of that is in prison or incapable for various reasons. What are we left with? About 3 to 5 million committing 43% of the crimes. No wonder law enforcement is at attention when it comes to dealing with some black men between 16 and 30 years old.
Dummies always ASSUME
I don't know. I would say inscriptions should be exempt.
I really like Heinlein, but the old West hardly bears out that statement.
That was her story and she stuck with it.
Thank you for your thoughts, Lois. As I stated in the OP, my parents raised us to be colour blind. My first exposure to racism was in the mid '80s while I lived in Texas for a year. I was flabbergast to find out that black and mexican people where paid approximately 25% less than whites for the same work! I couldnt believe it! I actually asked a coworker who was mexican and she laughed at me! I was embarrassed to have been so naive. I began to notice how they pooled together in the cafetria at lunch time and remembered how awkward than same coworker had been when I asked her to sit with us at lunch a few weeks previously. I was about 25 at that time and had grown up in a predominantly white small town in Massachusetts where my best friend was a Puerto Rican. I had never been popular at school and gravitated towards Juanita and another white girl who was overweight and walked with a limp. I saw discrimination, but never racism. I was teased because I was taller than everyone in my class by about 4 inches. I was called "giraffe" by all the boys. They didnt catch up til grade 8! Anyway, thank you for your thoughts, Lois. ???????
If bad people can be on earth, then why can't they be in heaven? No matter what crimes a person may have committed, eternal damnation is not not fair punishment. If there are bad people in heaven, you shouldn't hang out with them. It's easy, isn't it? No, I don't have a problem with it if Adolf is in heaven right now.
I rest my case.
While not everything is correct that they say, science tends to get more accurate over time.
No one knows what that even means. Even outside the universe, there could be one timeline that extends through everything. Imagine the universe inflating at one millisecond, it's the same time outside that, isn't it?
Being black isn?t a belief system. Non sequitur.
Why? Jesus was a nobody in a backwater town in the largest empire on the face of the earth. Jerusalem was irritant and irrelevant hence the reason it was razed to the ground in 70AD. Supernatural events either real or perceived was common place in antiquity. So why would a supposed resurrection be note worthy?
When it comes to dance, enthusiasm is much more important than skill or style.
