I can see Obama as a problem - for himself and for us. I do not see any sign of a dilemma. The dilemma is that as an incumbent he's unlikely to have a serious challenger in the primaries, independents are generally dead in the water in a presidential election, and the republican candidates are just...

You are always going to have the knowing God / learning God / experiencing God / doing God disparities - built into human nature. What is important is balance. Excessive letter-focus and you get duck counts as fish and the multiplicity of judgements and the weighting Proverbs and Pauline epistles hi...

We've been through this already and I've explained why young children are not able to consent. If you did anything of the sort, I totally missed it. I remember you asserting it. I do not doubt that some laws define it. But law is not fact. Could you actually explain what is the actual difference be...

Apparently, no one has figured out yet that this topic is related to the abortion one in the other thread.


Well, duh - some are not so dumm as that. Why make the tie in explicit? They are in the final event two different questions despite the obvious connections.

It's that whole 'consent of the governed' thing. Gay people are already getting married and starting families de facto ; what they and their allies want is for the government to recognize that, or at least to get out of the way. Okay - not sensu stricto a theory and locus for rights as such. Not a ...

Ah, mon ami, surely not JUST a nerd. See, there is an attitudinal difference. I assumed that I hated and was lousy at required square dancing because it was stupid. I assumed that I had too little eye-hand coordination for baseball and not enough speed for soccer because I was too smart to operate a...

I gave up religion as it made no sense and demanded so much, but gave nothing. :x Curious. I have found that "religion" [*NOT talking formally and carefully] demands much less than a politically conscious university department demands of its members. But maybe you are not in such. The Dept DID give...

To start with, if you have difficulties to coordinate, you can try the spinning dance :) It's easy to do but you need a lot of room to do it because when one is not trained to or is trained but has done it for quite a long time, one can feel deezy very quickly (as shown in the video). (Probably som...

I've been advised, when in doubt about the scriptures, ask God about its intentions. I have to admit, others have done the same, and have totally different takes on the scriptures. That is normal experience and COULD have something to do with the obvious fact that no two are sent along the same pat...

Connectivity? I do not get it.

By "the god thing", do you mean PPR toktok, or what? Is me unclear.

As for taking rights away: either we are in fact endowed with those right by our maker, in which case the rights cannot be taken away by humans - we can just be blocked from or punished for exercising those rights - OR the rights are the generous gift of our noble State, in which case if the rules ...

? No. Religious exemption will stop the whole new program in it's tracks, and it would cause an endless stream of accusations that some people are being allowed to die to give their parts to someone wealthier, more powerful, or considered more advantaged in some other way. If doctors and hospitals ...

I note that in this agora there are a many busily trying to convince the others of the error of their ways, or the righteousness of their own view. There are a many jawing back and forth with rants and taunts and inadequately manipulated logic and dubious derivative data about the terrible things A ...

I rather doubt the dead have rights. My dog may possibly have rights, but the fossils in the rocks on my grandpappy's walk had and have no rights. Nor do people give or take rights by my definitions. Still, some live people have an interest in some dead people [eg tribal burying grounds] as some peo...
