Why don't you give us the basis on which you propose to criticize Christianity? How do you know what is right and wrong? Where did it come from? How do you know that? How does that apply to the truth value or not of Christianity? The answer is that when humans were made in the image of God, they we...

Birdie, no-one is pestering anyone. IID has been coming here for a while now spouting off on how damaging Christianity is, and acting as if he/she has some special insights that proves that.. Should we just let him/her assert that and be done with it? Sorry my friend, if someone makes judgments on ...

And it would mean that I am a slavemaster (I'm 16 years old). And subhuman as well (I'm relatively small and light --> less cells than most --> less human). So according to the Ayn Rand Institute, I'm a subhuman slavemaster. Sounds like I'm a cruel alien. :lol: Worse -- they sound like Professor Um...

Why don't you give us the basis on which you propose to criticize Christianity? I'm quite critical towards Christianity, but I'm critical about most religions with a shady past, because those characteristics that make it shady don't really die: They perpetuate in different forms. Take the progressi...

It's hardly surprising that they would endorse sacrificing human life on the altar of convenience. Did Ayn Rand herself say she was for abortion? Because I read some of her books and in one of them she gives a scenario that was kind of similar to getting yourself pregnant (or in general getting you...

Isn't sonnets usually A-B-A-B not A-A-B-B for the rhythm scheme? I learned that in English class in case our jobs ever require us to write sonnets. :D

Sorry to throw a wrench in your theory about the problems I encountered, but both schools were Baptist schools. The private school I went to was a Baptist school too. I think there was one kid that was there because of being expelled, the rest (except me) have been gonig to that school thier whole ...

I usally don't have acne and my lips are red already and I think eyeliner looks weird. It would be good if you're older to wear e...

Also, Keep in mind that, when a kid gets booted out of public school for certain behavior problems, guess where he is most likely to end up... Well I was in the elementary school year when I attended. Not sure if the high school ones would be different if that was what you were teaching. What relig...

The problem isn't "public schools", "evolution" etc. (at least not directly). The problem is our families and churches. Our families are all messed up, and are churches have become "seeker-sensitive, doctrinally neutral" sideshows of entertainment, pop-psychology and mushy sentimentalism. I could n...

Some kids these days are much more demanding and are very prideful. What's wrong with pride… :( If kids had pride they wouldn't be following everyone else and become influenced as easily. On top of that the worship of God is not a cool thing to do The majority of people are Christians. Where I'm at...

"How much do we regard children as being the property of their parents?" Dawkins asks. "It's one thing to say people should be free to believe whatever they like, but should they be free to impose their beliefs on their children? Is there something to be said for society stepping in? What about brin...
