I don’t live in 1965 and I have yet to hear one Republican provide a pathway for helping end the underclass’s plight. To the contrary all I hear is rants about the “takers” and how we need to cut them off and get rid of their “free stuff”. How does that make their lives better?

I guess history wasn’t your favorite subject eh OG? The Dixiecrats of 50 years ago are today’s Republican party. That’s simply fact.

E-verify is being enforced, in the years 2008 – 2015 over 2 million illegals were deported, 30% more than under Bush. That’s a fact you can look up yourself.
BZZZZzzzzz…you are misinformed;
2 Tim. 3:16; “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,…”
Answer me this,
Can science disprove miracles?
I invite any atheist/denier, darwinian monkey brain to play.
I love it when people use the text that you just told them that you believe was written by man to support their argument of divinity in the Scripture.
I'm not sure if this particular Planned Parenthood provides abortion or not but others do. Regardless of the fact that abortions are legal in this country, I know many believe they shouldn't be. Many people believe abortions should be illegal and punishable. The Catholics even believe that contraceptives should not be used on penalty of eternal damnation.
As Donald Trump has said Planned Parenthood does a lot of good for those less fortunate than you or me. Much of their mission is to prevent unwanted pregnancies, providing education and low cost contraceptives. They provide vasectomies and tubal ligations to permanently prevent unwanted pregnancies.
And they provide prenatal care for those who are unable to afford an OB/GYN. Texas infant mortality it reaching levels comparable to third world countries - they don't like PP..
I know that Planned Parenthood performs legal abortions and we all hate that. We're all concerned about saving babies. But why aren't you concerned about the prenatal care that Planned Parenthood provides to pregnant women? And why are unwilling to support that baby with your tax dollars after it's born?
That's really what caring for babies is actually about. Preventing unwanted pregnancies to start with (good luck telling any species on Earth not to have sex), providing medical care when the babies are in utero as Planned Parenthood does, and providing care postpartum.
Nah, you don't give sh** about babies. That's BS.
Just more rhetoric and simplistic reasoning.
It's obvious you either don't understand, or care about the history of PP.
It's primary purpose and its primary means of financial support is through providing abortion services and advocacy.
There are numerous organizations and outlets which provide real women's services. In fact any hospital can provide superior servises which are supported by tax dollars and individual grants and donations.
In other words we don't need no stinking murder mills which is diminishing the moral integrity of this great nation.
We're better than abortion and it's time we lead and set the standard of its elimination.
@InEng: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,…”
Translation: The Bible is true because the Bible says the Bible is true, so I know the Bible is true because the Bible says the Bible is true because....
@UB: First define what you believe constitutes a miracle. I ask because I've had to face palm in the past as a Christian I knew claimed he had experienced a miracle by praying to find his car keys, and then later finding them. (I'm surprised he didn't consider himself a prophet afterwords)
FYI. My favorite 'miracle', that is to say, in recent times, is when a bunch of people were praying at the site of, and believed they were witness to a miracle when they found a tree outside a church that was 'weeping the tears of god'. All day long, even during the hot, try summer, the tree would drip clear fluid over and over. The church parishioners prayed next to the magical tree, asked it for miracles, etc. etc. I think I remember reading in one of the reports about it, that some people were even drinking god's tears, to assist in the miracle making. It was so awesome!
Too bad some stupid scientist had to come along and explain that it wasn't gods tears, but actually an overflow of excrement coming from the butts of sap sucking aphids, which are bugs that live in the tree. Doh!
D@mn you Science! Why do you always have to come along and ruin perfectly good Miracles!
Utopia says ,”It’s primary purpose and its primary means of financial support is through providing abortion services and advocacy.
Utiopia, you made that up. I’m calling BS on you. You’ve made a claim, so can you support it or are you pulling stuff out of your rear end?
Isn't your statement a lie?
I could give two craps what you choose to fixate on to believe or not, slenderbrain.
86% of PP revenue is from abortion.
I know there's no way you will choose to educate yourself on your own in order remain ignorant and closeted by your bankrupt worldview.
And, no, my statement is not a lie, but you'll make it any way. It's the way of the beast.
Blazed, your little story proves how truly uninformed, ignorant and stupid you are.
Not even a worthwhile effort. Failure 101.
@Buster: You asked, "Can science disprove miracles? I invite any atheist/denier, darwinian monkey brain to play."
You "invited us to play"
All I did was simply ask you to define a miracle, because as I pointed out, some people set the bar for miracles pretty low (finding car keys), and some are certain they found a genuine miracle, when in reality, they're just drinking bug sh!#.
Instead of responding to my request, or defining what you consider a miracle, you simply called me names. That's like a child who knocks over a chess board, and then walks away claiming victory.
Game-Set-Match indeed, kiddo.
Wow! So impressive to read the words of such enlightened folks like this. This one has it all figured out...not really.
UTOPIA, "Can science disprove miracles?"
Do you really still not understand that "disproving" is not how logic works?
I do not have to disprove your "miracle". You have to prove what you claim is a miracle.
Like the way skunky changes the parameters from miracles to, "a miricle", but let's go with that for the sake of conversation, like in, the miricle of life, it's origins and beginnings as well.
Yeah, yeah yeah, you don't like being called names, blazed, go find a safe place.
The answer is in the question guys and meant to prove how totally clueless and ignorant the atheist/denier is by you guys continuing to answer the way you are.
So keep em coming, boys. You have your heads buried in dirt.
UTOPIA, “Can science disprove miracles?”
Do you really still not understand that “disproving” is not how logic works?
I do not have to disprove your “miracle”. You have to prove what you claim is a miracle."
Actually, yes you do. You disprove it twice with the same results.
Simple, dopes, slender, blaze.....as I read your exchanges with the Senior Chief I realize that you have hardened your hearts. You have all your chips down on the bet that mankind is in control of his own destiny. You seem to deny that everything in this world is a gift from God. Including free will to do with it as we chose. My prayer is that someday you might hear the one thing that may make you question your position and ask if there might be something else to it. The Chief is making a point, rhetoric aside, maybe keep that conversation alive to see why we believe the way we do.
The problem atheists have with miracles is that they by nature are inexplicable. For instance, doctors find cancers and conditions that no known science could cure it and yet it is gone at a latter exam. People stuck in rubble after an earthquake for days without food and water yet they have survived against human ability to reason why. These are chaulked up as misdiagnosis, coincidence, and luck but not as being explained.
Hardened hearts will look for a loop hole even if no other explanation is 'prooved'.
You have to prove what you claim is a miracle.
Jesus died on the cross and rose again 3 days later. It was witnessed, and testified by several witnesses and then written in the Bible and you still don’t believe it.
And your "man-made" book was transcribed by several authors over the span of several years and there cannot be found a single contradiction in the book. Its not skin off my nose if you dont believe but it will be the death of you, if you don't.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Awww, looky there! It took a Christian to get it right.
Miracles, by nature and definition, cannot be explained by natural and scientific laws.
Christ's Resurrection is an excellent example.
God's inspiration and Christ's Word's in the Bible another.
And of course there's the origin of life and existence itself.
VERITY, "You disprove it twice with the same results"
I do not understand your point. Please clarify. Thanks.
@Slenderman2008 - According to the PPFA 2011 annual report, prenatal and adoption services made up 7% of PP's activity. Do remember, prenatal services includes referrals to non-PP doctors because very few PP facilities have OB/GYN's. PP simply doesn't provide actual healthcare to the poor.
UTOPIA, "Like the way skunky changes the parameters from miracles to, “a miricle”,..."
Being plural or not does not change the basic premise of logic in that no one is obligated to disprove your claim(s). It is for you to prove your claim(s).
"...but let’s go with that for the sake of conversation, like in, the miricle of life, it’s origins and beginnings as well."
Are you suggesting that science has to "disprove" life?
And just because you have a theory you claim is true that does not make it so. It is up to you to prove it is true and not for others to "disprove" it is not.
There is no escape hatch to this basic tenant of logic UTOPIA.
SOCIALISMSUX, that things happen that humans cannot currently explain with science is not evidence that the Christian god performed them and they are therefore miracles.
There is also the belief held by many that Karma is responsible for these "miracles". That belief is likewise only a theory the same as the Christian theory.
Believing in something is not evidence. It is only willful conjecture.
ITSJUSTME, "Jesus died on the cross and rose again 3 days later. It was witnessed, and testified by several witnesses and then written in the Bible and you still don’t believe it."
Who says these things happened other than the Christian bible?
"And your “man-made” book was transcribed by several authors over the span of several years and there cannot be found a single contradiction in the book."
Who compiled the bible? Who edited it? What is the purpose of editing a book if not to make sure it has no contradictions or other mistakes in it? And why are there so many versions of the bible and so many different takes on it?
I will convert to Christianity if anyone can answer two simple questions: Who exactly wrote, complied and edited the bible? And How do you know they were writing the words of a god?
hussidud- I did not attribute the 'miraculous' to a deity... Although there are many that attribute it to Jesus and God.... In most instances they do.
SOCIALISMSUX, " I did not attribute the ‘miraculous’ to a deity"
No you did not but you certainly hinted at it in the context of the overall discussion.
In fairness I will accept that you do not attribute miracles to a deity.
So does that repudiate UTOPIA's claim that "It took a Christian to get it right.
You are the one making stupid assertions about miracles.
It's your job to come up with proof.
Lots of luck with that.
hussydud- I do believe in a Deity and His name is Jesus, who is one with the Father and Holy Spirit, so yes everything I say and do hints at the Deity. Because I have seen the miraculous happen in people's lives and they attribute it to the Son of God, Jesus Christ and their new relationship with Him.
I have NEVER seen an atheist claim a miracle from their beliefs, nor a radically changed life... Actually I have never met a joyful atheist, nor a peaceful one, patient one and one that loved the unlovable. But I have seen that in Christians, some Jews and I met one nice Muslim once, married to a Christian.
All the Christians I've met in all sizes, shapes and colors have a commonality to them, which is joy and hope. In Ethiopia, Haiti, and Belize, most that did not know where their next meal was coming from. I've seen them on Mercy Ships and Samaritan's Purse and countless other charities giving to others in need for the one that changed their life. Putting their mouth where their money is so to speak.
I've not known an atheist to do anything but claim or disclaim what someone else should do/have done and try to hamstring people of faith with false arguments and lies about motives....
But that is from my perspective, a former agnostic,( until I came "face to face" so to speak with Jesus the Christ). Maybe one day you may meet Him too.
