    Amish girl in hiding to avoid cancer treatment

    Aup, things like this happen here in the USA. Why? We tend to bend over backwards for any form of christian (regardless of now un-Christian is that) belief.

    It's No Secret, The Christians Guide to God's Law of Attraction

    Pig-headed, honest, perhaps. Did you at least go to the websites I posted? I doubt it because the documentation is there to show I am not crazy. Besides, my Mother had me tested as a boy and the doctors said no.

    It's No Secret, The Christians Guide to God's Law of Attraction

    "Portrayed". My objection is that from the beginning is was (and is) one big lie! It is portrayed as something celebrating the Pokanoket's help to the Pilgrims (the first being big hearted Indigenous Americans, the second Puritans fleeing Religious Tyranny). Download the “Thanksgiving”...

    It's No Secret, The Christians Guide to God's Law of Attraction

    Most Americans still celebrate it as a gifting of the Pilgrims with survuval by the Pokanoket. However, that was NEVER the reason for Thanksgiving. It was founded as a celebration of victory over the heathen in King Phillip's War. Is the difference important? In terms of service to truth and...

    William Bradford, THE chronicler of the Plymouth Planation (and its head five times covering about thirty years between 1621 and 1657) wrote in his Of Plymouth Plantation about his “Proclamation of Thanksgiving”: "Those that scaped the fire were slaine with the sword; some hewed to peeces...

    The Personal God

    Fine, just let me point out that pure land creates a very personal g!d. Maybe you are using "empirical ego" different than I. To me it means a sensible or perceivable self. Like Hume, I utterly dismiss the notion. Who would seek to distinguish between a Person and the empirical ego? I...

    The Personal God

    GK, your post is perhaps pver my head. I believe that both Aup and I were both objecting to your and Tariki's concepts as being too small for g!d or some substitu idea. Tariki said "So ........ we have who we see ourselves as being, and there is what we perhaps truly are." Perhaps...

    What Use Guilt?

    Good call, Thomas. The guilt inflicted by a Jewish or Catholic Mother is a straw man. Is there any reason for it? Not logically... it is a way to cripple a child and hold it hostage. Is guilt as a personal feeling (and based on one's actions) is a different thing? I think not. Of the many...

    The Personal God

    Is it really an east versus west thing? Pure land buddhism is about as personal a theology as is possible. And process theology (a XXth century very western approach) is radically non-personable. Where does Hinduism fit in? If buddhism is eastern, it must be also. There are personal...

    Re: Bill Nye: Future of U.S. economy at stake in Texas Board of Education evolution d I believe that stupid dogmatic fundamentalism really does harm our capability to produce scentists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians. There are several studies that pretty well prove this objectively.
