3252  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: What does the ''camel through a needle's eye'' quote mean? on: November 20, 2011, 01:26:08 am

It's just another way of stating that "Behind every great fortune there is a great crime"
I don't see any way you could get that from this passage.

The principle line is:

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.

He is saying that it is impossible for a rich man to go to heaven. As impossible as a camel going through the eye of a needle.

For what reason? Seems obvious. The rich are such unrepentant sinners that they have no shot.



It means that rich people are too self absorbed to admit they are sinners.

Better reason: he's a super charismatic god of sex with a great sence of humor and a large Cult of Personality.

How would you describe a mix between Libertas and Opebo ?
Did Charlie screw your sister or something?  That is very mean.

I meant in terms of political views, not about assholery.

Libertas was one of the kindest and most polite members I've ever encountered here, he just had no tolerance for idiots.

You mean he had problems of self-hatred ?

3258  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Is it hypocritical for a scientist to believe in God (or even a Higher Power?) on: November 16, 2011, 10:44:22 pm
Many scientists, especially biologists, do not believe in any sort of god, wether God or any other one. But there are a few scientists who do believe in a god or higher power, and these people tend to be shunned in spite of their merits because of what they believe.


My point: Is it Hypocritical for a scientist to believe in any for of god or higher power?

The Song of Solomon is about how great sex is. It doesn't mention God. If it did, that would be very....unsettling.

The other book that doesn't mention God (Esther) is more surprising.

Don't forget the Song of Solomon. It's basically erotic poetry, and it's one of two books that doesn't mention God at all.

It should be a 9% tax on income.

9% sales tax national

(On top of state sale's tax, of course)

9% tax on business

and 9% payroll tax for social security

and 0.9 tax on medicare

Well, despite that 11 point advantage in California, it sounds like there might not be a Proposition to legalize it next year. That's too bad, it would be hilarious to hear about "those activist voters legislating from the ballot box"
Will they still blame Mormons/Blacks if it fails?

It's probably not going to pass. Every time people vote on gay marriage dircetly, it's illegal. All six states were made by court decisions, except NY which wasn't voted on.

New Hampshire, Vermont were through the Legislature.

Thanks. The point still stands, though. (Everytime the people dirctly vote, it fails.)
3265  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Evangelicals Now Preaching Joys of Sex (Within Marriage) on: November 13, 2011, 02:52:33 pm
Yeah, Christianity's very positive about sex within marriage.  It's extramarital stuff that brings the fire and brimstone.

Anyone remember Ted Haggard's pre-fall tape when he says that the reason the athiests hate evangelicals is because evangelicals have better sex? 

Ahh, yes, Mr. Haggard... I wonder who he's sleeping, er... hanging out with these days. Tongue


He's probably contributing to the "All Homophobes are secretly gay" thing.

You probably have already heard this, but Buchanan wrote a book defending himself. It's called Mr Buchanan's Administration on the Eve of the Rebellion.

Here's the entire book.
