Actually, when I was Orthodox, yes -- we still had to have our heads covered in church. And if you ever forgot your scarf, some little "babushka" would come up to you with one and insist that you cover up.
Hmm. Could be. Could be.
This does not describe how this physically existing function of the brain which you term the "mind" differs from the other physically existing functions of the brain?
You want to have your cake and eat it. Did the children have free will or was it predestined they would sin as indicated by "the future actions of their offspring"? Only one possibility.
Here and Now???? I'm dead
10. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother?s milk.
God did not give man the knowledge to invent airplanes, It came out of his ungodly lust for faster and farther travel. We in ignorance as fallen man, will justify almost anything that satisfies our fleshly desires for instant self-gratification. That is all this is, in it's grosses form. Self-gratification in the name of Yeshua. What next, a space shuttle?
It's really hard to tell from what he's saying here. He's emotional and a bit unclear. Plus we don't even have her side at all. You could be right, or she could just be frustrated with something else or lashing out.
What you just said was that scientists believe "knowledge" can be had by means other than empiricism. I have repeatedly pointed out that knowledge of things can only be had by the senses, and you elide that difference here. I have also pointed out that the test is the empirical component. Maybe you should my comments again. Or your own.

I've seen though that with this last SCOTUS ruling that right wing gay bashers are now becoming a lot more vocal, and with that the alt-right will likely be feeling a bit more supported as well. Hopefully it's not that we're just used to neo-Nazi's now.
Religion is simply opinion.
"Given this, the Church's relevance in what was once a bastion of Catholicism is waning fast. What can or should the Church do to regain its relevance in modern society?"
Islam is much more a political system than a religion. 2/3 of the Koran is devoted not to being a good Muslim but to treating non-Muslims. This is politics, not religion.
If you take a position of responsibility, people with give you authority. Part of the job is setting boundaries, volunteer or not.
You make claims about what I am supposed to be doing but don't demonstrate that I am doing it in the least.
Thanks. I remember this happened only a few weeks ago? I hope Disqus finds this person and totally shuts them down!
We are talking about the undifferentiated material of the immediate post big bang? By all means, give it a name.
They might be doing it for anti-science reasons.
" Possibly because the message never changes & God exists?"
People seem to like quoting in this group.
Doesnt exist. Stay tuned. I will address hell at a later date. ???????
