Theoretically, it should be possible for that woman to hold that belief but not seek to persuade others to hold it. Theoretically, it should be possible for school board members to act in the interests of all students, not just those who share the members' religious beliefs. But in practice, fundam...

I would have thought from the context of the statement you found so odd that it was pretty clear it was offered in a somewhat humorous fashion. Well, it's a pretty common problem on the internets... humor not coming through, I mean. At NO point in any of my posts have I resorted to personal attacks...

Dammit, my mind is not organized enough to the quote thing. Grrr. Well, I'll try. ...or the reverse, if some atheists have their way. I obviously agree. I hope you're not saying that hijacking government to push beliefs would be more wrong if it was done by atheists and not Christians. Nope, just as...

Witchcraft

Name: David N. Scott Source: unca20061122.htm DTS, Actually, it's worth noting that the Christian Bible (as opposed to the Hewbrew/Judaism Bible) has only one additional verse on witchcraft, which I've read many a place would probably be better translated as 'poisoner' (someone who brews 'potions' ...

David, I don't know if your post was directed at me. Still, I think I can answer some of your questions. I don't define my beliefs as atheism, although I have a lot of empathy with atheists. Maybe I'm an atheism-sympathizer who would be forced by fundamentalist McCarthyites to testify before an ima...

But what about you, David, are you suggesting that there is something illegitimate about my posts? That religion is above critique or cannot be expected to respond to criticism of its claims? If so, you would not be alone. Divisive? Well yes, of course. Is that a sin? No, as I was trying (and proba...

Haggard

Name: David N. Scott Source: unca20061122.htm Most people (I think, I could be wrong on this) would rather be connected to a gay fling than a meth deal. But out of the two options he could confess to, he chose to go with the drugs. ...though he did say he didn't inhale. ;) Just bought it for fun, I...

**David N Scott, Do we HAVE to necessarily be trying to accomplish something to state our thoughts, reactions, and reasoning to the endless tides of superstitions out there? I'd say each among us has his or her OWN reasons for wanting to vocalize. Some may be trying to "accomplish something&qu...

Hmmm. I've started this post about three times, and each time I've come off overly peevish. Taking a deep breath and going on number four. I don't know exactly why I've gotten so peevish... I guess it's just the perceived tone and the apparent claiming of knowledge 'edge of the universe and back to ...

He's there. It just hurts to answer, so he wants to wait a bit and do it all at once. :wink:

Yeah, I feel that ways sometimes--headachey and stomach sick. Only when the words aren't flowing, though.

My situation is complicated by athritis, though, for what that's worth.

Michael J. Fox

Name: David N. Scott Source: unca20061122.htm That whole affair has weighed on me, for some reason or another. Basically, on one hand, it does seem fair to point out that Michael J. Fox has completed an acting job here or there and has been seen at a premiere or two, without having symptoms nearly ...

WORLDCON

Name: David N. Scott Source: unca20061122.htm Yes, most dreaded of subjects. Hi there! Just wanted to toss out my own take on the Worldcon madness... Basically, my wife and I barely went for the Hugos despite being at Worldcon because it sounded a bit boring. Nothing to do with the Hugos in particu...
