When I was young and my grandmother was dying my mother explained that to Christians Souls are but the “drivers of a car that is the body.” When all worn out the body is left behind by the soul which then moves on.
Why is it that so many believers worry and fret about how and why some drivers want to customize their cars?

Really!? All one has to do to escape the Mounties is drive 55 mph??
I guess that is getting real close to 100 kmh and you don’t want to wear out the horse.

“Robots may be part of Christianity’s future”?
I think I’ve seen this depicted before… in the last few episodes of the latest “Battlestar Galactica” Reboot. Once the Robots find religion they start demanding rights… and it doesn’t go well from there.
Did you also note that the Cylons were monotheistic and the humans were pagans?
Actually you didn’t see this depicted in Battlestar Galactica since it took place hundreds of thousands of years in our past. According to that story, we are all descended from those robots through Mitochondrial Eve (Hera), who was the product of a union between human and cylon.
I would add pissed off to the phrase.

Looks to me as though MJ may be the Gate-Way A-Way from, rather than to, the far more damaging drugs.

This guy works for some “anti-discrimination” blah blah place… I smell a plant – like Rosa Parks – a fully staged event designed to appeal to the public’s desire to “right a wrong” even when the “wrong” is a myth.
Why not the palestinians do it all the time. They fake injuries and show off "dead" people.

“While there is life, there is hope” – that the majority of such jihad seekers will similarly wake up from their stupor.
Killing the host cells (humans) containing the Evil (the bad ideas in Islam promoting jihad) does nothing to _Kill the Evil Ideas_. It only empowers the spread of the Cancer via revenge.
Only the cured cells (humans like this guy) can effectively cure the cancer of Evil Ideas within the Jihads while leaving them alive so that they can in turn help cure others and teach the next generation to be more peaceful.
It's happening, but not as fast as the average muslim is being swept up in jihad, unfortunately.
Continuing to pray that God enters the hearts of many Islamic extremists and they see His way. Then have the courage and strength to share His message

I looked into the identical twin gay studies a while back and those studies showed multiple examples of identical (DNA) twins where only one is gay. Were it purely DNA both should be gay or straight.
However, genetics don’t stop when a pair of DNA patterns combine. Epi-DNA affects the activation/deactivation of portions of ones DNA due to ones environmental/mental/emotional state, which are driven by choices of the parents. In the case of the father his choices affect the epi-dna of the sperm as they are developed (month after month) and the mother’s choices affect the epi-dna of the child during development (the mother’s dna contribution is set at the time of her birth). Additionally the choices of the individual during their childhood affects the epi-dna of their cells during puberty.
In short, it is not _a_ choice but rather multiple choices made by parents & child that will determine if the child identifies as “gay” in adulthood.
I joined late and “Due to high demand” I can’t get into the chat. Oh well, catch yall tomorrow (maybe)

She was 14 weeks when found Nov. 26 – The child might have been saved. There doesn’t have to be only two options. A third option which would have ended the pregnancy while saving the child could have been done. We have the technology, we just haven’t pulled it all together yet because both ProLife and ProChoice crowds are too addicted to the fight to actually work towards Changing the Problem.
we do not have the technology to keep a 14 week old fetus alive. we can barely do it with a 25 week old fetus, and when we do the complications are prolonged and severe. this was a tragedy, but given the family's wishes, it was the right decision.

Looks like there is a Chimpanzee costumed human between two other humans without costumes.
To call this offensive is to admit that YOU can’t tell them apart due to YOUR prejudice.

Tech Surge and ACA Software Engineers can Quit now En Masse as Heroes of the Republic or continue to be Tools of Tyranny. Anyone claiming healthcare.gov work as experience is Blacklisting themselves from future private sector work.

Luckily the power of an EMP falls drastically as distance from ground zero increases (inverse square IIRC) making it difficult for any single warhead to do damage beyond a small radius. The vast majority of electronic devices would not be permanently damaged, some would be fried, some magnetic media will be wiped, and the power may fail for a time but the idea that a single or even multiple EMP detonations will send a country back to a pre-industrial state is a bit of an overstatement.
That said, my server infrastructure friends always suggest that server rooms be built with a Faraday Cage around them (grounded metal mesh in walls, ceiling, and floors) as it is also good protection from lighting strikes.
People hear some scary name and common sense goes out the window. People seem to think it is a magic weapon covers all the US.

I don’t want to sound like too much of a plot geek but Mr. White was cooking Meth not just to cover healthcare bills but also to leave millions to his family since his partners forced him out of the mega-corp he helped found.
True but the medical bills were the catalyst that got him drug cooking (and he refused to accept money from his former partners to pay for the treatment).
I thought he wansn't forced out but left of his own volition to teach... But then again I have only seen 1 Season.
If I remember correctly I think Walt and his partner both liked the same woman and she ended up marrying Walt's partner. Walt took a $5000 buyout for his half of the company because he didn't want to work with the guy he felt stole his girlfriend (and the company beacame worth billions0.

Ray’s key point can be expanded to all Scientific inquiry.
If one does not personally repeat the science and confirm the results then they are accepting the conclusions as a matter of faith in the scientific rigor of others. This faith is far too often misplaced in those who’s income is predicated upon touting a false conclusion. (e.g. AGW fraud by CRU/Penn State)

That is essentially the question that I added to the Poll above.

Riiiight because an administration on the edge of collapse would _never_ modify an “official” email before releasing it.
It is just so hard to create or modify ASCII text that there is no way that the White House could…
Wait a minute!

“They believe in an invisible sky wizard.” <- Typical childish view of God expressed by many atheists who lack critical thinking ability in an effort to belittle and dismiss ideas they fear will cause them to reflect and judge their own thoughts and actions.

“It is simply false to suggest, as I did, that his approach to economic policy was inspired by any aspect of his personal life.”
It is simply false to state that his personal life DIDN’T have a great effect on his approach to economic policy, as it does to all of us, gay, straight, bi, or otherwise.
The degree and direction his personal biases had on his work (w/o original sources) is pure speculation.
What isn’t pure speculation is the repeated failures of the theories he produced that are still clung to by the command & control religion of progressivism.
