[In discussion about Harry Potter]

I guess my whole issue with these books (aside from Christians supporting the use of witchcraft) is the target audience. If the people depicted were say college students at least the target audience would be adults and would be far less likely to be influenced to experiment with witchcraft.

To me it really seems unfair to expose kids to this stuff.

Church of Christ, Scientist
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Family of Love
Foundation Faith of God
Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity
Jehovah's Witnesses
Mennonite Church
Religious Society of Friends in the U.S.

You MAY be a scientist studying PHYSICAL science.
I find a bit arrogant that someone studying physical science can pretend to understand intuitional science.
As far as intuitional science is not affected by the law of cause and effect it is logical that you can not understand a bit of it with the physical science tool

Doctors at Long Island’s North Shore Hospital say Grace Sung Eun Lee is competent and made her wishes clear. Woman's parents say removing her from life support would be suicide and condemn her to hell

She is paralyzed from the neck down, tethered to breathing and feeding tubes — but Manhattan bank manager Grace Sung Eun Lee still managed to mouth four words Wednesday.

“I want to die.”

Doctors are trying to honor Lee’s wish, but her devout parents believe that removing the tubes is suicide — a sin that would condemn the 28-year-old to hell.

They’ve gone to court to keep the terminally ill brain-cancer patient on life support, turning a heartbreaking family tragedy into a right-to-die legal battle.

The case has put medical ethics and religion on a collision course, with lawyers arguing in two courtrooms while the patient at the center of the fight can do little more than blink her eyes.

“The thought of her dying, my heart tremors, everything goes black,” Grace’s father, prominent Queens pastor the Rev. Manho Lee, pleaded to a judge.

Her mother, Jin-ah Lee, does not believe her always dutiful daughter has given up on life — or that her death is inevitable.

“Despite all this confusion, she wants to go to heaven,” she told the Daily News. “I keep telling her she can get better. God’s going to save you.”

The congregation at Antioch Missionary Church is praying for Grace, who mentored young people. The day after the Korea Times wrote about the case, a Korean church group took out an ad that declared: “Giving up life is not the will of God.”

Lee’s Korean immigrant parents say she is depressed and not in her right mind.

“We believe that our daughter is really heavily medicated and unable to make her own decisions,” her father said Wednesday.

But her doctors at Long Island’s North Shore Hospital say she’s competent and has made her wishes clear.

“She is very tearful when she thinks about dying, but she consistently asks that the breathing tube be removed and she begs us to do that,” Dr. Dana Lustbader, chief of palliative medicine at North Shore, testified at an emergency hearing last week.

Quote# 121276

My country is now so morally repugnant to me that I have nothing left in common with it and fully define myself as a Quisling. No other word is strong enough at this point. I used to feel like a rebel, but now I feel like a full-blown traitor because the chasm is so deep. I look into the abyss and see only hate, and I become hate. This is not the country I grew up in and not the kind of society I want to live in. Just when you think it can't get any worse, they come up with new aspects of sexuality to criminalize, and the man-hating hysteria is always directed at the new target with undiminished strength. The goal posts keep changing but the hysteria always remains, and the media never relent on their hateful propaganda against men. Who would have thought that women who regret taking nude pictures of themselves would be the new rape victims? Yet, that is where we are at. When revenge porn has gained the same legal status as child pornography, the feminist abuse industry will simply move on to the next hysteria, which will be added to all the others in a cumulative fashion. I can't imagine what the next hysteria will be, but I do know this: They will NEVER be satisfied. As long as there is a mangina willing to fight for them, they will wage war on male sexuality and female too.

You didn't grow the tree. Show me a Jew that is anywhere near a
Christmas tree farm and I will show you a Jew masquerading as a
Christian.

In any case, your interference with our rights is why you all ought to
be either deported back to Jewistan or sent up the smokestacks.

And East Asian women are morphologically less distinct from men than Europeans. Also, it appears that they are cognitively more masculine than NW European women (check US math test scores by race — white males test significantly closer to Asian males than white females to Asian females).

Northern European gender equality is a myth supported by the great indulgence shown to Nordic women. Feminine weakness and foibles are tolerated in Scandinavia to a degree that would seem absurd to Asians or Africans. Scandinavian women’s participation at the highest levels is possible because of the extreme deference shown to women in these countries, which would be unthinkable in the rest of the world. I’d argue that this demonstrates higher levels of sexual dimorphism: if women were really treated “equally” then they would be marginalized as they are in most of the world.

We are either going to go down the socialist road and become like western Europe and create, I guess really a godless society, an atheist society. Or we're going to continue down the other pathway where we believe in freedom of speech, individual liberties and that we remain a Christian nation. So we're going to have to win that battle, we're going to have to solve that argument before we can once again reach across and work together on things.

While taking chemical engineering classes, our professor explained the laws of thermodynamics. Carefully reading and studing what was presented, on my own it became clear to me that evolution, i.e. life from nothing, one animal turning into another was against the laws of nature.

“I have no faith. Please do not try and bring me down to that level."

So you have no one you trust. I guess you are insecure. You even sound paranoid. Paranoid people refuse to trust people or things. They live in fear. They have no faith in banks, the police, planes or elevators. Paranoid: "Exhibiting or characterized by extreme and irrational fear or distrust of others."

[Describing the "inevitable" Christian goverment that will arise]

I believe that all people who are of a different religion should be given the freedom to worship as they see fit. Those, however, who have been born into the Church, who have made Covenant promises and oaths through baptism and the Holy Eucharist, and especially those who have taken special oaths to keep the Church pure from heresies, should be held to a higher standard. Those religions, while they would have freedom to worship as they see fit, they should and would never be given an equal standing with the Christian religion in terms of being able to proselytize and hold public office.

['In your near-Utopian Christian country described above, would I be killed if I 'preached' agnosticism to the masses?']

If you are a citizen (i.e., a baptized member of a Christian Church), and if you refused to repent, then yes.

If you are an alien, you could be deported, jailed, or yes, even executed, if you persisted.

Here's how evowackos "debate".

• They use "science", "scientist" and/or "scientific" ar least five times in every grammatically incompetent sentence;
• They claim to be scientists/professors of science in prestigious institutions such as MIT, but their abysmal ignorance of science exposes them as teen trolls within a few posts;
• They are without exception pompous, arrogant, ignorant, contentious, insulting, brazen, shameless, and clueless;
• They are with few exceptions the first in an ev thread to raise the issue of faith and religion;
• They attack my Christianity and the Bible even though I have NEVER cited either in my incisive demolitions of their junk science;
• They accuse creationinists/ID advocates of being religious, but they worship Darwin and cite/quote TalkOrigins as their godless bible;
• They utterly refuse to address any scientifically sound rebuttal of their mythology;
• They universally insist that natural selection renders math and probabilities irrelevant and makes the impossible inevitable;
• They invariably cite consensus as their proof of evolutionism;
• They load their Plan-9-level bullshit with subjunctive-mode words/phrases such as "might have", "may have", "could have", "it is assumed", "it is thought", "it is supposed", "let us imagine", etcetera, and they have the balls to call that science;
• And on and on and on ad nauseam.

It would be refreshing to encounter one of the zit-popping little snot-eaters who actually attempted to debate rather than reciting their tedious mantras that we've all heard/read at least a hundred times.

God took Hitler and the Nazi's evil and used it in his perfect plan for the redemption of mankind. God doesn't intervene in men's free will, but he knows ahead of time what is going to happen so he uses our actions, whether good or bad, for the progress of his perfect plan. The Jews have to be in the land in the end times. WW2 helped to make that happen.

Quote# 93615

Actually he raised some valid points against Islam. A few examples:

1. Islam teaches polygamy. In fact the Koran is a text based entirely on this immoral doctine of men having multiple wives. Muhammad for example had 11 wives.
2. Islam teaches sexual immorality. The Koran states Muhammad had sexual intercourse with over 20 woman (including women outside his marriages, including several of his owned female slaves).
3. Islam teaches child marriage (sick). Muhammad married Aisha when she was six years old. The Hadith, explains that he had slept with Aisha while she had childrens ''dolls'' in her bed.

None of these facts are distortions from ''anti-Islam websites'', all these things you can read in the Koran and Hadith. Also the usual liberal argument ''well all religions teach the same thing'' is a fallacy here. The Bible is strongly against polygamy (and those that practiced it were punished i.e King Solomon), is against sexual immorality (it promotes no sex outside marriage) and thirdly is certianly against underage marriage or any other as disgusting things.

I believe that evolution doesn't explain away God. For those who believe in evolution, the problem is that if human all follow evolution theory,then human suppose to be stupid and more stupid and our body and brain should become smaller and smaller until what you could imagine. This is because according to evolution theory, human evolve from big apes with huge head or brain and huge size of body, and if according to the speed of human evolve from ape,then now we should just like a small allien and not the one we look likes now where human become smarter and smarter..so I don't believe evolution works at all.

[Arguing whether the serpent lied in the garden of eden]


"Clearly "thereof" does not have the meaning"

Clearly?? Usually, when people write something like this they have reasons that support the idea. What are yours?

Clearly "thereof" does not have the meaning you are desperately trying to give it.

Google, define thereof

How about a dictionary website? Here is one. The definition listed is...

from that cause or particular

Which is pretty much exactly what I wrote before - "Because of this". As usual, you have chosen to disagree with something that is very obvious and easy to demonstrate. Why? Are you a troll?

"thereof" means of something, in this case the fruit."

No, it means because of eating the fruit. How are you this dumb?

" But at least you now you accept..."

I have always accepted that they were cursed to die on the same day they ate the fruit. You may remember, that was my point from the begining. To sum up the argument, it goes like this:

The Bible says, in older translations and not newer ones that accord with modern word use, that Adam and Eve would surely die on the day that they ate the fruit. When they eat the fruit, they are cursed to surely die. You think the fact that they didn't fall down dead that same day means that the whole "surely die" thing never happened. You are totally ignoring the fact that on that day, they are cursed to SURELY DIE, exactly as predicted.

Restating the argument, I hope it is clear that your efforts here are nonsense.

" The second problem you have is that your still implying by your argument that Adam and Eve were created immortal."

Adam is cursed to surely die as a punishment for eating the fruit. Quoting scripture is not "implying" an interpretation.

"Clearly Adam would only live forever if he ate the fruit"

Repeating this doesn't make it true. Sorry to ruin your favorite method of argument. I've already linked the scripture where Adam is cursed to surely die as punishment for eating the fruit. So no, it isn't at all clear that Adam would only live forever if he ate the fruit of Life.

" No, that is not what "ad hominem" means"

a fallacy in which a claim or argument is dismissed on the basis of some irrelevant fact or supposition about the author or the person being criticized

We're done here. I genuinely hope you are a troll. Nobody should be this dumb. If you aren't... just, do the world a favor, and never share your opinion about anything, ever again.

Thanks.
