    That's not quite true. The geocentric model of the universe does so well at explaining the motions of the Sun, Moon, stars and planets in the sky that it is still used by astronomers to position...

    I see that People want understanding and so appeal to magic as a way to answer questions about something we don't understand. It isn't the only method of reaching an understanding but it is much...

    Seems to me there is only two possibilities.

    1.. There wasn't then there is.
    2.. There was and there is.

    Either is damned interesting. Just a personal gut feeling is that 2 is more probable.

    Well except for ingesting powdered dragon teeth. I don't know of anyone who has taken powdered dragon teeth who have been assailed by demons.

    Is that the Shaker mega-church with the massive day-care and kindergarten to take care of all the Shaker's kids while the parents are attending service?

    You apparently haven't watched Comfort's description of how the banana was 'created'. It is a damned funny parody of creationist's arguments.

    There are a hell of a lot of things you do every day that Jesus didn't say is OK. By your reasoning, since he didn't say it is OK then he believes it is not OK. You should cease doing anything that...

    But then judging the nature of Satan (Lucifer) by the Bible's description is kinda like judging the nature of Brits and Americans during WWII by how the Japanese press described the allies at the...

    the writer of that article doesn't seem to be aware of who Democrat voters actually are. Sure, millennials are predominately Democrat but they are not the majority of Democrat voters. The two largest...

    That seems a bit overly detailed for the question.
    A tensor with only magnitude (no direction) is a scalar.
    A tensor with magnitude and a direction is a vector.

    Surely a 'just god' would house the nice masochist in heaven as a roommate with a nice sadist (a sadist that only tortured those who wanted to be tortured).

    I still question who he is really mocking. Overtly, he seems to be mocking the idea of evolution but then it clearly is a mocking imitation of creationist's arguments.

    Personally I think it is...

    Can it really be Heaven, then?
    I mean, it's onevthing to say only certain people will get INTO an omniscient-designed paradise, but to claim only certain people can enjoy it?[/QUOTE]

    To me it looks like it was originally a B/W photo with a grid of fine colored lines over it. However, with multiple jpeg copies being made, there has been significant pixel bleed smearing the fine...

    I think the reason could possibly be more herbal than mathematical.

    They are still active just not 'in your face' like they were in the '70s.

    You can find one of their temples nearest you from their website.

    I think that's probably why Mark Twain said, "hell for the company, heaven for the climate". I really don't think that believers in an afterlife give a lot of thought as to how boring it would be....

    Only in Australia where everything in nature can kill would they have armed and dangerous turkeys.

    So, most people don't have a big fear of death.

    Here's a few examples of why people fear death.

    Why, is an interesting question given that many, many Christians do, in fact, fear death. Could it be that their religion has scared the shit out of them? Could they fear going to hell that their...
