Re: Gift Giving - Your thoughts?

I think our wives should spend hours hanging out door lights year after year and changing burnt out bulbs from these two stories high midst cold gusty wind on a precarious ladder... Only thing I do not like about Christmas is hanging outdoor lights... but in the Land Down under in warm weather - mi...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

That is why the philosophical view that Earth was the centre of the universe was proven wrong, empirically by Copernicus and Galileo, or that a ball of cotton would fall slower than a ball of iron of the same weight which was what Aristotle believed but no one had considered to actually check it un...

Re: In love

I cant help but think of this movie... WnlirYCqPAA I don't think I've seen that one - a similar story but I don't know if it turned out like in the documentary! There didn't seem to have been (in the doco) that agonising about not being able to be more than friends. Well, I dont know... is being in...

Re: In love

The Bible clearly states in multiple places that God considers homosexual activities sinful, in fact, an abomination. People are BORN with an inherited sin nature in which means we will - yes, naturally - be tempted by and thus desire all manner of sinful things and activities. Adulterous, promiscu...

In love

I watched this documentary the other night called 'My Husband is Gay'. I think I've seen it before but it really struck me this time. There were two stories told - the more conventional one was of a middle-aged couple of whom the husband had known when he was younger that he had a gay tendency, but ...

Re: Morality

Okay; let me clarify. A person who believes morality is Objective (not subjective) suggested subjective morality lead to the atrocities of Pot, Mao, and Stalin. I’m just trying to understand the logic behind this, since those things DID happen; perhaps you could point something out to me that I am ...

Re: Prayers about work

Well,an update. Things are quite tough at the moment, Plan A is not working out as I'd hoped. I'm kind of at a crossroad in my life. Thankfully, I've got some savings, but I really don't know right now. I normally have a clear direction that I see to go in, but it seems that direction has just been...

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

A cafe is a place where coffee snobs go to order bewilderingly complex concoctions and sip them while writing screenplays on their MacBooks. The Piano was written in a cafe. Stereotype much? Sometimes. The one about how Christian conservatives don't get jokes is my favorite. You dont seem the humou...

Re: Should women breastfeed their babies?

Don't you guys have that saying? Choka block as in full as, as in FULL? Nope. y:-? Weird - not sure the connection of the term. Just looked it up - it actually comes from the UK and refers to nautical equipment. Basically means 'crammed tightly together'. I remember a brand of choc chip cookies in ...

Re: No hot water

Have you considered the gas 'infinity' type of system? They're not too bad - you always have hot water - but on the other hand if you try to run a hot tap on less than full flow it will go cold again because there's not enough water going through. I even have trouble with the shower in summer becaus...
