Re: Is homosexuality harmful?

Humans don't go through "heat" like animals do nor do human males have a "bone" in their penis like other mammals. As such, pleasure and stimulation are crucial for there to be an actual sex act to begin with. The fact that sex is very pleasurable to BOTH simply means that there is motivation to ha...

Re: The Mistranslation Argument

"Brian" is Jac's real name. His having been a member for over 12 years and fairly well respected, so I gather, I thought this would be common knowledge, at least among the staff. :pound: :pound: :pound: :pound: :pound: :pound: Not even close my man. What? You think it's Paul? Stop it man you're kil...

Re: The Mistranslation Argument

YES, the mods ARE aware of this post and the destructive back and forth. I did not see it until last night. But it stops HERE and NOW! While I don't agree with some of Jac's emotional response, I can see why he had it. He offered informed information and a link to past posts that address Audacity's...

Re: The Mistranslation Argument

I'm going to offer one and only one polite reply. Pretty much all the politeness you have in you? Is that it? For you, yes. And I was straining to get even the little I managed to muster. That you feel like you deserve even a moticum of the same level of respect as other people here--several of who...

Re: Is homosexuality harmful?

fair enough... The movie was kinda ok.. helped by the fact it only went for an hour :P Thats kind of you to volunteer your time to help with sound. Actually, it's a blast. A director will come to me with a script looking for certain sound effects and music to go with the play (s)he's directing, and...

Re: Is homosexuality harmful?

Your avatar has me curious. Why would you choose that one? Im currently watching the movie. I honestly don't recall; although, I may have selected it because Audacity is an audio editing program I use as the volunteer sound tech for the local community theater. * shrug * Had I known it had anything...

Re: The Mistranslation Argument

If Audacity wants to claim that 100 year old scholarship ought to overthrow that of modern scholarship, let him make that argument. "Evil," "woe," or "bad times," it doesn't make any difference. What is important is the message the variety of interpretations sends. Although the nine translations I'...

Re: Is homosexuality harmful?

In a nut shell: Determinism in no way suggests that anyone is programming anything. It's simply a recognition that all things happen for a reason. Reasons that no one has any control over. One does not have the ability to choose between different possible courses of action, as free will suggests. t...

The Mistranslation Argument

Every so often when debating an issue that depends on the support of Biblical scripture someone will bring up the point that some crucial word in the Bible has been mistranslated leading to the wrong impression of the scripture. However, whatever one thinks the proper translation may be, the fact re...

Re: Is homosexuality harmful?

Arguments against free will are just attempts to reject God on a different level, using the cloak of "omniscience" as cover imo. Never heard this one before. Just how did you come by it? Read it? Hear it? Figure it out on your own? something else i notice is that "the veil" is also mis represented,...
