    The majority, even among critical non-evangelical scholars, is that the Bible does say that homosexuality is a sin. To make dealing with each claim simpler, I'm going to cite from NT scholar Robert...

    This whole border issue has me a little torn. I absolutely empathize for the people trying to get in. I think it's so sad to see people so desperate, and I can't fault anyone for doing whatever they...

    I don't really care for the sentiment personally. At least, not how it's being used here. It taking something that's meant for good, something we should be doing for both friends and enemies, and is...

    Not the best, but certainly the most likely to win. I think even those party members who dislike him would rather have someone they know will win rather than risk it all.

    Less than a week to find a thread that directly mentions you? Looks like you've been floating around TWeb longer than you're letting on. What's the saying around here? "You can check out any time you...

    Seems to me that he's grasping here for a classic "Science of the gaps" argument. "We don't understand it now, but some day science will figure it all out for us."

    Obviously this is sarcasm. When I read carpe's post I was surprised at it. I don't follow politics nearly as close as you all do, but it was my understanding that Republicans barely stand Trump in...

    Not that I really care that much, but do you have a source for this? Everything I can find in a search in Google limited to this month (quarter 2 2019) says that Rachel Maddow is still well below...

    It seems to me that you should have read enough of OBP's posts by now to know that he's a little smarter than that; That he's not saying that just because slave holders often used their slaves for...

    I don't really get why he doesn't understand the difference between will, focus, thought. Perhaps his mind is so filled with noise that he hasn't noticed the difference. :shrug: Also, I don't know...

    Oh, looks like he edited the post I replied to. The original was barely comprehensible. Must have been in a rush, or typing on a phone without spellcheck or something.

    Good to know you're above that sort of thing, seeing as you don't bow down to experts and all. I'm sure we'll all remember this post next time you cite one for whatever point you're trying to prove.

    As I understand it, the concept of vomitoriums, and/or overeating + vomiting is a bit of a myth for the Romans as well.
