"Why is there something rather than nothing?"
I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand your question.
"What is the purpose of life?"
There is no purpose. Why would there need to be? Just go out there and enjoy it.
"What is the meaning of right and wrong; good and evil?"
Right and wrong are subjective. As a conservative, I'm sure you believe that harassing abortion clinics is "right" that preventing same sex marriages and adoptions is "right" that teaching creationism in a public school is "right". As a liberal, I emphatically disagree. As for good and evil, we know good from evil by the way we are raised. If we are raised by kind, loving parents, we learn that empathy and caring for others is "good" and the opposite is "evil". We don't want to harm others because we weren't raised that way, no religion needed. An adult who was raised in love who genuinely does not know right from wrong is a sociopath, a medical condition.
Hope this helps!

Hoax? Christ’s resurrection was reported in all of the Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. All give ample evidence of Jesus’ claims to be God. Not man become diety but God become man.

Nice try Soveriegn but you pulled one verse out of a parable of Jesus’. This is not an instruction to Christians to slay non-believers. It is however the certain end of enemies of Christ in the day of judgement. The parable must be read in its entirety and understood as a story that has a larger meaning. Those who say to Christ “we don’t want you to be our leader, our king” will find that his judgement is harsh and just. Until then, I hope a Christian will show you Christ’s love and that you do claim him as yours.

While there may not be a religion test to determine if you are accepted as a refugee into this country there sure as hell must be a values test.
1. Do you reject jihad as a duty of every Muslim?
2. Do you reject murderous martyrdom as way for you or your children or Anyone to please Allah?
3. Will you submit fully to complying with the laws and language of the United States?
If all are yes, great. Then sign here.

Liberals and Muslims have one very important thing in common. They absolutely reject the notion of open debate. So though you would think Islam’s 7th century patriarchal values would make it a target of the Left, the Left rather runs to its defense because they are both fascist mindsets!
Muslims and socialists do have a lot in common, as Islam and Socialism are compatible except for the issue of women's rights. Liberal fascists and Islamofacistst agree that opinions that differ from theirs are blasphemous and the people who voice these contrary opinions must be silenced and punished.

A very good question Zapp. It however presents a false premise. That is that atheists cannot do good things. This is not true of course because there are many good examples of good things being done by atheists. There are also many examples of bad things being done by atheists and supposed men of God. I believe what Carly Fiorina is saying, and I agree with her, is that a leader of a nation must have a source for truth above himself or herself. Otherwise truth, justice, and goodness are all abstracts completely given to relativism, subjectivism, and skeptisism. There is no true north and no certainty of right and wrong. Moreover there is no accountability for ones actions and no meaning to ones life. The fascists of the first half of this century all suffered this dread disease of nihilism and because they had no hope beyond today they all pursued the most devastating of agendas causing millions to die and billions to suffer needlessly. I have no desire to be led by a Godless leader.

Might this be the root of the Benghazi embassy attack?
 November 24, 2015 at 1:15pm
She is correct. People who have a world view that acknowledges a sovereign God and recognize they are accountable to Him when leading the people make far better leaders.

My word! There are actually some students remaining who can think rationally and deal with facts to form an argument? My guess is these were home schooled children not exposed to our post-modern public school system. Nice! Go get ‘em!
When will the BLM movement protest Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood? Great BLM People– protest Wilson–but Sanger was and still is horrible for black America .
” It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated ‘Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America’s Black community would now number 52 million persons.’ It would be 36 percent larger than it is.”
From Black Genocide.org
How much do black lives really matter to the BLM movement?
Unfortunately, you will now have to prepare to be bullied. Perhaps even physically.
Be prepared and steel yourself.
You and I are impressed with these students notions, but I kid you not, they will pay a price and not get anywhere to boot. 90 years of Progressive Entropy will not allow it. Behind the closed doors of Academia, commonsense is inversely related to Political Correctness. They might get in to see the committee, the members might even politely nod their heads and mumble corresponding platitudes. But they won't act, they've already hitched themselves to the wagon, and even when they careen of the cliff they won't be brave enough to even save themselves.
“Many who questioned the protest were labeled racist, and black students who expressed disagreement with the protesters were called ‘white sympathizers’ and were told they were ‘not black.’ ”
Welcome to the PC world where anything conservative is labeled by the leftist cretins as racist, etc. Glad to see you stand up, because without a substantial number of students and faculty having the ethical integrity and backbone to defend the truth, the university becomes an indoctrination center for progressive-ism, something that would have made the Stalins, Castros, and Maos of the world proud.
Unfortunately, they will be attacked as racists and even possibly physically assaulted. The Left is scared schitless that they're losing their grip on America, and will kill all who stand in their way, remember Germany 1934? That is where we now stand, only here, it will be the Communists rampaging through the streets, burning books and looting the electronics and upscale clothing & Sporting Goods stores in Malls across America.

Shocking. I am so NOT surprised.

No way! Another contrived act of racism, rape, bigotry by the progressive fascists. Hitler used the same tactics to fan hatred of Jews.

To claim Jesus as a great prophet while denying what he said about himself is shear folly. Christ claimed to be God and was crucified for those claims. Anyone denying His deity is denying his salvation and he who denies his salvation is doomed to death eternal. [Jhn 14:6 ESV] 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Islam denies Christ as God, as the Son of God, as the Savior, as the One who will judge all people. Islam is therefor not a religion of peace but a lie and a path to eternal destruction. I urge you to seek the truth before it is too late.
Judaism also denies Christ as God, as the Son of God, as the Savior, as the One who will judge all people.
I urge you to seek the truth before it is too late.

For those who are not Christian – The Pastor is correct. If Muhammad was indeed given the words in the Quran by a spirit it could not be the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit. Simply because it denies that Christ is God and by doing so also denies his resurrection and his substitutionary sacrifice on the cross for all mankind. Who would want to deny this? Of course Satan would want to deny this. As the enemy of Christ he would want to deceive, he would want to bring many to destruction. The conclusion is straightforward, Satan is the author of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad was deceived or overtaken by Satan’s power. Islam is a complete lie and an incredible danger.
Actually, Muslims hold your Jesus in very high regard...to them, he was perhaps the most significant prophet before Muhammad...
...however, just like the Jewish faith, they do not necessarily believe that he was the prophesied "messiah" that Christians claim he was...
Just letting (or trying to, anyway) you know that I responded to you
I know this story to, is off the front page, but it's the latest, most recent place I see that you posted,
so I do not have a more recent post of yours I can post this to let you know I responded.
I am sorry about that.

America was founded on Christian values and among these was value for freedom – including freedom to choose and express your own religious convictions. We were not established by godless heathens but by God-fearing Christians who saught freedom from religious persecution in Great Britain and Europe.
 November 18, 2015 at 2:28pm
Muslims have made a disaster of their homelands. They have literally crapped in their own beds with their culture of hate and violence. Now that their homelands are a disaster they flee to Europe and the USA. How about NO! How about He** NO! These people need to stay home and fight for their country. They need to reject tyranny and hate and they need to figure out how to form a free, democratic, and God-fearing society. Islam is the root of a great evil in our world. It must be seen for what it is or there will be no end of the suffering it brings. The American people are not dispassionate for not wanting to import a diseased culture. No!

Thank you to Libby Powell for correctly handling the word of God.
There are the rules of man and the rules of God.
Guess which set I am more comfortable with.

fortherecord – Not so that Jesus’ message was concocted after his death (and resurrection). Jesus Christ was crucified for claiming to be God by the Jewish leaders with the support of Roman occupiers of Judea. His claims were backed up by many miracles witnessed by thousands of people. His life is historical and documented not only in the Bible- written by eye witnesses – but also in Josephus’ extensive history of the Jewish people in “Antiquities”, written in the 1st century. His message in his own words could not be more clear and he was crucified for it. Moreover, thousands of his followers were also crucified or murdered for their belief in Christ and his message. This included 11 of his 12 apostles. This certainly is evidence that those closest to Jesus believed he was indeed the Messiah and were willing to die for that belief. God became man and gave himself to pay for the sins of the people. The Torah and the prophets spoke clearly as well on this and anyone with an open mind will see that Jesus, his life and resurrection, perfectly fit these prophecies of the Messiah. Yet, Pharisees old and new continue to be blind to the truth.
Wrong, it was not the Jews who ordered Jesus death.
The proof is that if they had that much power ove rthe Roman Empire they would not have been conquered in the fiorst place, abnd they would not have been paying to Rome twice the taxes paid by any of the other conquered territories.
And doing 'miracles' was already rejected by Torah as any kind of proof of divinity.
If he wanted to actually impress the Jews, he would have had to have passed the test given to prophets to prove they are real, and that test was something Jesus never took, and never could have passed.
And many Jews including many of the so called 'Pharisees' were murdered for their belief in in G-d, yet they still knew Jesus was not, and could not be G-d.
 November 16, 2015 at 2:12pm
Well Rabbi – though the message of Christ may be uncomfortable for you, as it was for the Pharisees, it is nonetheless true. I suggest you get over yourself.
It's not necessarily 'his' message but the interpretation of his message which was written many years afterwards, which you believe is supposedly true.
That is not proof, it actually ***is*** true.
G-d told Moses 'no one can see my face and live', so anyone later claiming to be G-d, who's face peope could see and they did not die from it, could not possibly be G-d.
So it's not the rabbi who 'needs to get over himself'.
It's more like those, who tell him he supposedly needs to, when he doesn't.
And you know it is "nonetheless true"....how?

Aren’t these kids with their signs and their demands just adorable? Their future employers will be so pleased when they arrive from college so full of energy and useful ideas.
The best part is, it is their professors that have run up the cost of education. We should drop a ton of one page fliers explaining that the cost of college has increased because the professors have been taking advantage of a guaranteed payment by the gov. Their mentors are the ones that have caused all these issues. They want a socialistic utopia, why are the teachers taking more then they need? They need to apply their logic where they are at before they demand everyone else pays for them. Plus, I want my tuition paid back. Why do they get to go for free and I had to pay? Explain how that is fair.
Another thing the Idiots do is put their entire Lives on Social Media, even the Crooks (yes, they are “That Stupid”) and it’s the First Thing an Employer’s HR Department looks at! Like “Judge Marilyn” says “Say it, forget it, Write it Regret it’ because it’s on the Internet “forever”.
