    btw, the AR15 is the rifle dana is holding on the cover of her book, in a clever optical illusion you can actually see a firearm if you stare at the cover long enough.

    Driving isn’t a God-given right, at least according to the founders.

    I do see the point that some regulation is necessary, for example explosives need to be regulated.

    There is no need to regulate arms more than they already are, the AR15 is a good example, this firearm is a safe and a reasonable firearm for anyone to own who can afford one. The AR15 should probably be less regulated than it already is.

    In the insurance industry, if anyone sent such an email to a whistle blower that person would risk prosecution that could lead to jail time or massive fines to the company.

    Nice point about protection being a natural right.

    This right was even mentioned in the bible, how the Israelites were denied methods to defend themselves after being conquered (Samuel 13:20). How any Jewish person given recent history be convinced that civilians shouldn’t be armed is well… only a University degree can make someone that stupid.

    These young woman never realize till its too late that a lot of the stuff that works when they are young stops working when they get older. They are shocked when they are no longer thought to be smart and funny, that their really bad actions are no longer forgiven, that the reason they get away with doing awful things are not because they are clever.

    This girl is so surprised that her saying she wanted to be a cop doesn’t get her off, and that this cop out-smarted her with the truth is really a hard pill for her to swallow. Hopefully she will learn from this but I am guessing she thinks this cop is ‘mean’ and she is a victim.

    The point of view is this, big money and white privilege skews the vote so much the only way for a fair vote is for the dems to have an added edge of additional ‘supplemental’ votes.

    Thats how they think of it, thats why they get worked up over vote integrity, they believe if it were not for this fraud we would soon be back to slave days. They do not see the world as it is, they really believe what they say.

    We had bean soup and cauliflower and broccoli salad one night.

    There was a definite presence later that night, complete with unexplained moaning heard through out the house.

    I really like Norton but this seems disloyal to me. I have no opinion on Opie.

    I felt the same when Nick was fired from Nick and Artie/ Artie Lange should have resigned. I have no concrete evidence but the little I was able to piece together is someone was angry with Nicks politics and put pressure on the the execs such that they thought they wouldn’t get players to interview.

    The only way the execs will learn to stand up to criticism is when it effects their wallets.

    I heard the prisoner after hearing the diagnosis gave the doctor a hand.

    Pretty clear the parents are the problem here. If my kids acted like that my first response would not be to blame the teacher.

    One of the main reasons for a border and port authorities and passports is to prevent this kind of thing.

    If someone tries to enter the US with a passport from an infected country we are supposed to be able to block that person from entering the country.

    What if it were plague, people were blocked from entry from infected countries IN THE MIDDLE AGES!.

    it will be nice to have adults in the Whitehouse again.

    to me it was never the time that was important, I held a ‘day’ to mean a period that ancient people could understand.

    It was the sequence of events that were interesting to me, not something ancient people would dream up. Why the heck was ‘light’ the first event? How did ancient men come up with that and isn’t it a unique insight that it brings? Also the idea of emptiness is wonderfully expressed in Genesis, I believe this is pretty unique in ancient literature. That something came from nothing is an important concept proven in Cosmology.

    Well I am an ex-atheist and I do come at this issue a little differently.

    If I were still an atheist, I would say that my morals largely come from the 10 commandments because they seem logically sound and following them would likely benefit me in the long run, and I would study proverbs for the same reason and even quote them.

    I would not say that morals really existed in the sense that there is a right and wrong. A universal right and wrong only makes sense if there is a law giver and is senseless if we live in a purely materialistic universe. I think it’s crazy when atheist say ‘Im a good person’ because what does ‘good’ mean?

    I am now a Christian so take whatever I say in that context.

    Plenty of societies existed where killing your neighbor was perfectly acceptable, consider the Norse, killing a member from a stronger clan was not done for obvious reasons but killing the weaker for their treasure was not considered immoral at all. In fact they bragged about it.

    sosorry, do you think you are just better than these people? Or is it possible that you were raised in a society that has been influenced by 2000 years of Christianity and your innate knowledge of right and wrong is just a feeling based on being raised in this society.

    I feel that a lot of atheist really benefit a lot more from Christianity than they realize.

    Whether someone robs me is in no way effected if I rob someone else, plenty of people rob and kill people and die without those thing happening to them. Matter of fact, the richer you are the less likely you are to be victimized despite what you do to get wealthy.

    You atheist cling to morality because I think you want to be considered ‘good’ people. I really think you need to reconsider what ‘good’ means, in an atheistic worldview ‘good’ does not mean acting like a Christian.

    What is your criteria that an act is moral or immoral?

    To an atheist, the question of morality seems to me to be 100% irrelevant. The question is, does this action enhance my life in some way. Morality seems to me to include things I do that do not benefit my life.

    ‘completely pure babies ‘ is an emotional response, not logical in the least. Children are not born moral, this is pure emotionalism.

  • [1] October 16, 2014 at 12:55pm

    how does your non aggressive principle work if I kill you and take all your possessions? How does that make me immoral? I consider my well being above yours, does that make me a bad person?

  • [17] October 16, 2014 at 12:06pm

    Your belief that we are all born moral takes far more faith than I have.

    What evidence do you have of this given the billions of murders, rapes and theft that have occurred over the centuries?
