I worry that you will all go to Hell because you are not paying the LITERAL Mother of God the respect she deserves.

Oh and don't forget! Jesus created a Church not a Bible. If you are not following his one true Church than you do not love Him.

No. All I'm saying is that to be Protestant you have to accept that God broke his promise given how the Church embraced practices which it deems as idolatrous and heretical.

To me for Jesus to really keep his promise that the Gates of Hades will not prevail against his Church, there must be a branch of Christianity that survived through it all throughout the ages since its beginning.

Catholicism is out of my list here. Orthodoxy is the closest possible candidate to this.

"The Two Babylons" by Alexander Hislop, is a 300+ page history book detailing the pagan origins of various Roman Catholic traditions, and PROVES beyond a reasonable doubt that Catholicism is 100% Pagan Satanic Garbage from Ancient Babylon. The Roman Catholic Church is NOT Christian, it is 100% Satanic, its religion is really Babylonian Satanism covered up with Christian sounding names. Jesus criticized the Jews for practicing that Judaic/Babylonian amalgam religion. The Jews in turn sought revenge against Jesus and had him crucified. After the crucifixion of Christ, the Jews continued their attack against Christ by going after his disciples. From the beginning, the Christian church was in a spiritual struggle against Judaism. Judaism could not win in a head to head spiritual contest against Christianity. It was necessary for the Jews to throw their efforts behind undermining the Christian church by injecting it with a Judaic contagion. Their long-term strategy was to change the Christian church from the inside-out to align more closely with the Judaic/Babylonian theology. The Jews could not change the true church of Christ, but the Jews succeeded in creating a false church, a heathen church, a church that appeared to follow Christ but was in fact an antichrist church. That antichrist church is the Roman Catholic Church.

Acts 28:25 ...after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,

Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:

For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them...

Wrong

5 Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16 The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled. 18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”

Its a city
>>
>>50885875
Correct but those people also have beliefs, rituals, creeds and rules that defines them and makes them Christian.

That same community also embraced practices deemed as wrong by Protestants such as the veneration of saints and high regard for Mary. They also did not uphold Sola Fide too!

If this is so then right after Jesus left, the Church was abandoned and defeated for these people did not have the beliefs Protestants have today until the Reformation. Remember if there really are a group of believers that believe in the stuff you do, we would find fragments of their writings or even mention by the mainstream 'pagan' Christianity. But this is not the case. Thus like it or not, God broke his promise and lied. Deal with it!

well, i agree that the new health care mandates and a minimum wage hike are two separate issues. i would not agree, however, that they are unrelated. everything in the economy is related to everything else in it, and these two specific issues are predicated on leftist guilt trips regarding the poor, so it's a natural political move to link them.

so much so, that i suspect that's sort of the point the other anon was making. if i may restate it, businesses cut hours to below 30 hours/week so that they don't have to provide health insurance. workers then cannot survive on $9/hour at 30 hours/week, especially with the new mandate that they must carry health insurance. so they agitate for a higher minimum wage, which wouldn't really fix the problem anyway.

>Do you just have no morals and do whatever you want?
Atheism is not a lack of morals. It's a starting point with many roads. An atheist can take almost any belief system in philosophy, he can even take religious philosophies with things like atheistic Christianity are secular Buddhism.
>Why do you have threads? Why have a thread about something you don't believe in?
This is answered in the pastebin: http://pastebin.com/6WL0aB7s check the index. If you're curious, you can search for 'atheism general' in the archives to see some of the things we discuss. There is significant discussion about skepticism, secularism, philosophy, empiricism, and other topics related to, but not synonymous with, atheism. There is also comparisons of religions and discussion of their history and idiosyncrasies

>His existence make anything make more sense?
His existence does not "make more sense". It makes "equal sense". And the truth is, neither of them make absolutely any sense. So it is pointless to even compare the two.

I don't particularly focus on "What are the odds a god came into being, who then created everything, vs what the odds everything just came into being on its own."
Rather, I say, "What are the odds that all of this was random and meaningless?"

I think the real enigma for me, is "consciousness". It throws me off so much, I can never even put my conception of consciousness into words.

Before you respond something about consciousness is just chemical reactions in your brain. I agree. But, first we must turn to something called "Scientific determinism".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Determinism


Basically it says, since all atoms have to follow physical laws, then the movement of atoms is effectively predetermined from the beginning of the time. Thus, free will is something of an illusion, because the decisions you think you are making, are just chemical reactions in your brain, and those chemical reactions are based on the atoms making up the chemical molecules, who all behave in predictable ways. Thus, in a sense, what you think is your life, is more like watching a very realistic movie.

I'll give you some examples of rituals I admire. The sight and sound of a choir singing Bach, or an Orthodox service with an Akathist fullthroatedly sung, is undeniably beautiful. Something is lost in 'spartan church services'. But the truth is the main thing. What appeals to heart and mind. But if I was responsible for all the features of religious services, I would have to incorporate something that related to all the senses as well as presenting information. I don't think that the ideal is the 'Sunday School format' necessarily.

year after it was established, Britain’s national sperm bank has admitted it has only nine registered donors – prompting its boss to urge men to prove their manhood by donating sperm.

Laura Witjens, the chief executive, says the sperm bank will launch a drive to recruit new donors later in September, inspired by the success of Denmark’s booming sperm banks which market themselves by appealing to male vanity.

“If I advertised saying ‘Men, prove your worth, show me how good you are’, then I would get hundreds of donors,” she said. “That’s the way the Danish do it. They proudly say, this is the Viking invasion, exports from Denmark are beer, lego and sperm. It’s a source of pride.”

Let me explain this. You are right. Everything is quite subtle. Communism is very similar to capitalism and they have roots in socialism and liberalism. In both there is an elite of rich people who govern everything, in one system by the police in the second by the economy. In both systems the governing class feel insecure and they eavesdrop you by some special agency. In both masses are manipulated by overwhelming propaganda and have little chance to get to the governing class or just become middle class. To survive both systems need to expand and wage a war.

I have lived in both so I do understand it from the experience not from books.
>>
>>50885166
A market unencumbered by community/collective regulation or negotiation is necessarily capitalist. Capital will inevitably flow into the hands of few when unencumbered. The only way to guarantee workers ownership of anything other than their individual labor and the capital it is traded for is through community/collective regulation and negotiation, usually overseen by an authority called government. This necessarily deprives workers of their ownership of their labor, now controlled by the community/collective and said to be for their benefit.

Moreover, it is necessary to have dictionary definitions for these words. If 'socialism' and 'capitalism' means different things to different people, it is impossible to argue their merits and faults.

neutrinos are weird things. Very small, very fast. Very, VERY small. So small that they pass through everything. Between you and me, between brain cells, chromosomes, individual protons in an atom blah blah blah. Made inside the sun during the fuel burning process. Fly outward pretty fast, slower than light iirc. They also seem to last forever. Neutrinos passing through you now can be from a star untold lightyears away that has already burnt through its fuel and has died.

It is very hard to stop neutrinos from passing through things. In order to make sure they actually exist, we need to go somewhere deep enough into earth to hide every other bit of radiation and background noise. Only in this isolation can we experiment in finding if these things actually exist or not.

heritability is likely to be 60–70% for height
all of this heritability will be accounted for soon due to statistical analysis.

We demonstrate using simulations based on whole-genome sequencing data that ~97% and ~68% of variation at common and rare variants, respectively, can be captured by imputation. Using the GREML-LDMS method, we estimate from 44,126 unrelated individuals that all ~17 million imputed variants explain 56% (standard error (s.e.) = 2.3%) of variance for height

TLDR
- Height is extremely predictable based on genetics
- It is a very complex trait, in the same way as intelligence, and is governed by a tremendous number of genes
- We will very soon be able to guess any person's height fairly accurately with a simple genetic test
- Height selection will soon (within years) be possible in babies born of IVF.
