    And apparently grocer stores too.

    Based on the POS’s actions… maybe we should ban men from the swimsuit dept. of stores – and from all grocery stores – eh? Dont want those pervs being ‘invited’ into those locations now do we?

    There needs to be ‘reason’ to claim one is trying to reason with another.
    Where’s the ‘reason’ in 1Free’s comments?

    What?
    You don’t think a woman could recognize a POS ‘man’ who harassed her two years ealrier?

    onlythe

    I suppose we.should ban men from the ladies’ swimsuit section of the store then. Or ban men from all grocer stores then – eh? Based on this POS’s actions.

    Sorry but… No. OUR polices ALONE did not destroy our manufacturing.
    MANY elements have effected OUR and the global manufacturing sector. MANY.
    Including the policies of other nations.

    I will agree 100 percent with you tho…

    And who out there determines what the “Biblical truths” are?
    And WHY?

    My goodness.
    You can’t use “God/Jesus/Spirit” or “Satan” as thing to identify as good or wrong when trying to identify things that do not require use “God/Jesus/Spirit” or “Satan”.

    Which ONE ‘good’ or ‘bad’ / right or wrong you say you can teach, learn, live the same withOUT any reference to any god has not been turned on it’s head or reversed by another man or people and what makes you qualified and them not?
    NONE!!!!
    That’s the point.
    What is also the point is HOW / WHY we determine is something is good or bad / right or wrong. What is the CORE determining factors for such?

    It is not as simple as this but…
    Does the ‘thing’ benefit or harm others? NOT does it benefit or harm ‘me’? That is but selfish. But rather, again, does it benefit or harm others.
    And a god / Satan belief is NOT required to determine that.

    “It’s in the Book.”
    It is in the book YOU use. What about all the other ‘books’ (bible versions)? What about all the individual interpretations of all those books? Because that’s all it is. Individual interpretation. And then what about all those other ‘books’ of those other god faiths?

    “read the Book”
    And interpret it YOUR way – right?
    Or is that…
    Interpret it MY way.
    Is that OK if I do that?

    “Why are atheists so insulting when they talk about God?”
    One; Not all atheists are insulting that way.
    Two: Why do some of faith come off as so righteous – as if they have all the answers and they hold THE ‘right’ (god) belief / interpretation.

    I personal do not believe in a god but I am pretty sure my belief is not like anything the folks around her believe in. I do believe there is a “high power” or something bigger than all of us.

    “Kind of telling, that their own demise on the horizon makes them rethink.”
    Yes. That is rather telling. Interesting.
    Interesting that people… In need shall we say… Turn to hope and belief in something they hope, believe will… Help them.
    It not just as people get older though DogsLoveFreedom.
    People of ALL ages are often ‘in need’ (of something ‘else’). And for me, i see that, sadly, some others USE religion / god beliefs to manipulate those in need – to get them to believe like they do.

    Curious DogsLoveFreedom…
    How many other faiths / god beliefs have you allowed yourself to TRULY ‘explore’?

    So Trump LOVES the rapists.
    Right?
    He is often saying how he loves the Chinese.
    Now he is saying they are raping us.
    So…
    The Donald must love the rapist Chinese. And he’s not angry at the rapist. He’s just upset that America is letting itself get raped.

    But seriously Donald.
    It great you use such visual language to describe what the Chinese do to us economically but what really is important is…
    Just what SPECIFICALLY are you going to do about it?!?!?!?
    How do you look to stop the raping?

    Sorry but: “We’re going to turn it around. And we have the cards, don’t forget it. We’re like the piggy bank that’s being robbed. We have the cards. We have a lot of power with China,” …. That just isn’t quite specific enough Donald. At least for me. It may be for the mindless Trumpettes who follow / support you but for me… I’d like to hear a bit more specificity from you with respect to how you look to stop China from raping us.

    Good one East

    WOLD

    Christianity – or ANY god belief / religion is NOT REQUIRED to define (teach / learn / live) morality. In fact, all such god beliefs often do is ‘muddy the waters’ with respect to such.
    Whose version / interpretation of Christianity is to be used to define what morals?
    Or why (just) use Christianity? Why can’t some other faith / god belief be used?

    Care to explain WHY you think “the country will be much worse off as the churches continue to decline” – ???
    Or even define what you mean by church’s decline?

    I had known of these folks / this ‘view’ / this ‘study before but it was recently presented on an NPR program I enjoy listening to and it relates to, well… From RationalWiki…
    “people fail to adequately assess their level of competence — or specifically, their incompetence — at a task and thus consider themselves much more competent than everyone else. This lack of awareness is attributed to their lower level of competence robbing them of the ability to critically analyse their performance, leading to a significant overestimate of themselves.”
    In other words… We ALL don’t know what we don’t know.

    This is why I USUALLY ask LOTS of questions.
    I KNOW that I don’t know much of anything.
    I like the saying…
    The more I learn the more I realize the less I know.

    There is no single most important question. Sorry if you think there are too many critical questions but…
    (Take your pick)
    WHO determines what “the message of the Bible” is? And HOW do they determine such?

    Just what kind of god abandons his creation? A creation ‘He’ created – and created – ironically? – with the ability to abandon ‘Him’ – yes?
    Seems like a rather… sick ‘trick’ to me.
    God: ‘I am going to create you humans AND give you the tools of your own destruction and ability to ‘abandon’ me.’
    What kind of god does that?

    And what kind of god then creates ‘all this’ but yet does not give all the equal ability to ‘His’ enlightenment?
    Like I asked: How can someone ‘leave behind’ the message of the Bible if they have never actually been ‘exposed’ to that message? Why do SO MANY NEVER get exposure to the Bible message (you or I or others) have received?

    Noah Noel

    Thank you for your thoughtful, respectful response.

    Not sure I would classify my ‘departure’ from SOME/most? of the god / religious beliefs I was raised to believe in as a “turn from religion to oneself for answers”.
    I wasn’t – AM NOT finding answers in my faith or religion – OR from myself per say – but rather from the people I have met and the experiences I have lived. Traveling to numerous places around the world – Africa/Middle East, Europe, Asia… THAT has had a HUGE impact on how I perceived the world.

    Indeed, everyone DOES have their OWN point of view – which may or may not be reasonable or correct. And that applies to their god / religious beliefs TOO.
    I look at the supposed ‘god’s truth’ as but some man’s version / personal interpretation of ‘truth’.
    You have chosen to “trust the Holy Bible as God’s truth revealed to man (as translated from the original Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic).”
    OK. You do realize the simple act of translation can cause huge changes / differences in context. And then there is just the personal interpretation of such.

    Many – just as many people if not more of other faiths – believe THEIR god / religious beliefs are THE / their “steady anchor in today’s world of shifting beliefs and morals”.
    So who is ‘right’?

    Like I’ve asked – repeatedly…
    Identify for me ONE ‘good’ or ‘bad’ / right or wrong that REQUIRES a god belief to teach / learn / live such. I say I can teach, learn, live the same withOUT any reference to any god.

    Additionaly lanceintx…

    Frankly… I’m not into the ‘diagnosis’ side of this issue. I’ll leave that up to you and the other experts in the field.
    What I am ‘into’ (or really its what I am against) with respect to this issue is the utter lack of understanding, basic respect, and compassion by too many folks for those who do SUFFER from confusion about their gender identity. And since I have seen such ‘confusion’ in children – from the earliest of ages… and then I know of the far too often terrible consequences that can arise when such folks are ‘abandoned’ if not outright ‘abused’ (often by those who claim they love them)… It is THAT which I look to ‘address’ with respect to this matter.

    Far too many (often far too young) lives are destroyed – literally – with extreme rates of suicide – achieved or attempted – and all too often because those folks feel abandoned and abused (again, often by those who claim they love them).

    I can pretty much guarantee that if the folks who write crap like: “What I do care about is some hairy pervert in a moo-moo whipping out his penis in front of my granddaughter, daughters and wife just because he has issues with “identity selection” … If they actually got to know – or if their lives were personally touched by a loved one challenged with such… They almost certainly would’t continue to write crap like that.
    And maybe you wouldn’t write stuff like: “To patronize delusions is despicable and unbelievably cruel.”

    OHhhhh… You have a Masters in Education.
    Great! (Seriously)
    lanceintx M.Ed., Pal

    One of sisters has one of those degrees too.
    I happen to have a couple other Masters degrees.
    But how do any of our degrees make us experts on the issue of gender identity. Or more specifically for you and your claims… How does a M.Ed. make YOU an expert in gender identity “disorders”?
    Oh wait. You are “familiar” with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) – Fifth Edition I assume – so… THAT must make you an expert on such matters.
    OK then.

    Do you have much clinical time with “gender identity disorder” folks?

    And thanks for posting the picture of yourself.
    Don’t sell yourself short. You look very pretty. (No matter what others might say)
    And sorry but… I care not to post personal images of myself on a site like this (or most anywhere online actually). Too many crazies out there – ya know?

    “The fact that you don’t understand that having a penis and believing you’re a female is indicative of a delusion says a lot about your own mental state.”
    If you say so lanceintx M.Ed., Pal

    fruitaco1

    No. Your point could not be less clear.
    Gee. Everyone finds lots of things “interesting”
    My question was… WHY do you find interesting whatever it is that is presented in the links you have posted?

    Maybe if you more clearly made a point then you wouldn’t get confused and have to offer that you never claimed that I claimed anything about you. Nor claim that you did not make any claim to which i supposedly seem to have suspected of you.

    Here’s a link I find “interesting”.

    utopiabust

    “pretty clear”
    I’m not so sure of that.
    If “pretty clear” then… Why all the ‘confusion’? Why all the MANY variations of Christian-based belief? Why do so many who say they are “true Christians’ turn on others who say THEY are the “true Christians”?

    What defines for you utopiabuster what is the “quality” (your) god is looking for?
    And when someone challenges those ‘standards of quality’… Then what?
    Who is ‘correct’?
