Evidence to suggest that Noah’s flood actually occurred:
1. virtually every culture has a story of a great flood that wipes out civilization
2. Despite the Gilgamesh story being “1000 years older” than the Hebrew story, the Israelites, who were certainly not known for there ships somehow managed to change the Mesopetamian ship from a cube to a stable nautical design
3. The Bible/Torah version of the story is by far the most detailed in regards to the actual build up to, the events of, and following the flood
You must be thinking of the pictures you have seen in Sunday school books because other than the fact that the width is no longer equal to the length, nothing in the actual text of the scriptures suggests a “a stable nautical design.” The word ark doesn’t mean a boat, it just means a box, and the brief description in the Bible does not indicate that it was anything more than a box.

The reasons why Russians can see it: They have something in the not to distant past to compare it to. We Americans have no such comparison to make, we (the 51% that voted for him) only see FREE STUFF

But, he would get better compensation here. And yes, he is being forced, but he is refusing the offer as unfair.

As far as I’m concerned, you should be allowed to fire anyone, for any reason at any time unless you have signed a contract saying otherwise, but that’s just me. And yes, I would have fired this woman if she had been my employee.

Update, John Kasich, Governor of Ohio has announced that the State of Ohio will not be creating its own exchange. His reason for this was relatively simple. The National government mandated it and then told the states to pay people to run it, he decided that since it is a National mandate, then the National government can pay people to run it. Not to mention the fact that most Ohio based insurance companies are not going to be part of the exchange (father sells insurance for a living), so this whole system will be dead in a few years anyway.

Ron Paul for Federal Reserve Chairman! No, seriously think about it. What better way to end the Fed then from the inside.

Even as a fan of THE Ohio State University, I find this policy ridiculous. People should be allowed to support whatever team they want wherever they want. This is a free country!

Lawsuit saying that Chick-fil-a is being discriminated against by the governments of cities on the basis of its religious beliefs would be open and closed real quick with comments like this.

Philly, what you fail to understand about Christianity is that we are all condemned to hell. Only through the gift of Christ’s salvation can we be saved. There is no punishment for not accepting the gift, you and everyone else who do not accept it will go where you were going to go already. Let me put it this way. We are all beggars on the street, who are going to die of starvation if we don’t find food soon. Myself and a few others know where the food is, and we are trying to tell everyone else where it is. If you fail to come with us and get that food you will die, but instead you are saying that we are threatening you with starvation if you don’t come with us. No, we are telling you that we know where relief is from the starvation you are facing.

@ Philly, being one who is looking for a new church himself, and as you would not understand as an Atheist, choosing a church is not the same as going to to the Supermarket and learning that your favorite brand of cereal is now discontinued and you just pick up a similar one and move on with your life. Choosing a new church requires that many variables come into play. Big church vs. small, hymns vs. contemporary, full body baptism vs. dripping water on the head, does the church take communion weekly, quarterly, annually etc. How is the pastor does he focus on growing the congregation’s faith or does he attempt to explain Christianity to new believers. Sermon series or not. Although none of these characteristics are “right or wrong”, personal preferences come into play. To imply that he should just move on and another one because there are 20+ nearby is wrong, and as long as a church teaches the Bible, I don’t have a problem with it on a philosophical level. If you choose to respond to me with sarcasm or anything like it I will not reply, but I would enjoy having a civil discussion with you.
