He was over here last week and of course he said he all the usual bullshit about Loving Ireland blah , blah , blah.
The reality is his hotel and golf club are losing money so where did he stay? At his hotel and golf club a great bit of international advertising , analysts are saying the Hotel will now be booked out with Americans and international tourists. He covered the bar bill in the three local bars a clever move the locals love him as tourism is thriving in the area since he became President
He says a lot of stupid things and is a buffoon of that theres no doubt , he does have cunning though and skill to use and dispense those who are most useful at the time
As the child is born there is no reasonable argument as to when that child's life began
If one really think of fetuses and five-year-olds as on par with one another, abortion is homicide. That said, I suspect very few people really think that a fetus and a five-year-old are moral equivalents, they instead play this game where they let on they believe they are moral equivalents in an effort to carry the argument.
I bet very few of these ( except for those like foam within ) would call for the law to charge a woman with child murder one of societies most heinous crimes, because they do not see the moral equivalency but yet pretend to do so.
Are pro lifers moral gradualists? Do they in fact regard themes of relatively lowly moral status at the beginning of the fetuses lives,and of greater moral standing as time passes. It seems to me they see the difference but won’t admit it
Patrick .S.Tomlinson challenged one of the central notions used by ‘pro-lifers’ that life begins at conception, and that therefore, a human embryo holds the same value as a human child.
Speaking to his 25,000 followers, Tomlinson says that a decade ago he came up with a scenario which shuts down the idea, and that in all that time he’s never had an honest answer.
Whenever abortion comes up, I have a question I've been asking for ten years now of the 'Life begins at Conception' crowd. In ten years, no one has EVER answered it honestly,” Tomlinson tweeted.
He goes on to explain a scenario whereby you are in a fertility clinic when the fire alarm goes off. Before you escape, you have the option to save either a five-year-old child who is pleading for help, or a container of 1000 viable human embryos.
“Do you A) save the child, or B) save the thousand embryos?“ he asks.
“There is no 'C.' 'C' means you all die.”
In a decade of asking the question, Tomlinson claims he has never had an honest response from people opposed to abortion.
“They will never answer honestly, because we all instinctively understand the right answer is ”A.“
“A human child is worth more than a thousand embryos. Or ten thousand. Or a million. Because they are not the same, not morally, not ethically, not biologically,” he tweeted.
“No one believes life begins at conception. No one believes embryos are babies, or children. Those who cliam are trying to manipulate you so they can control women.”
Not to be outdone by the other idiots here is Donald Trump on that good ole global warming ......
.......In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!.........
Comment made just days after Trump obtained approval to build two sea barriers to protect his golf resort in County Clare, Ireland, from rising water
HOGWASH, we see no homosexuality in any of out pets or livestock or animals we can observe. WHY IS THAT?
Possibly because you’ve sexually abused all your animals and they’re too traumatized as yet to admit their homosexual leanings
If it happens in nature why do we not see it in animals we live with and see every day?
HEY !!!! Leave your wife out of this
Any animal you try to deceive us with, is not Gay
Bringing the wife into it again huh?
. They have sex with anything that moves just as a dog will hump your leg.
You keep bringing your wife into this , I actually think you have a “thing “ for men you do seem obsessed with homosexuality
I guess that dog must be into bestiality.
Bet your dawg dances to YMCA
How do idiots like this even cross the road without assistance 🤣 This line nearly killed me ...... Or you have some servant standing there fanning you with a piece of paper.......A piece of paper ........🤣🤣🤣 The poor man had an image of a fan in his mind but didn’t know the word for it 🤣🤣🤣
Truly tragic isn’t it? Here is a short very short video of a grade A American imbecile with his killer demonstration of how climate change is a hoax ......Mint sent me this a while back I nearly died laughing at his “uh huh “ at the end https://youtu.be/3E0a_60PMR8
Do you more fear a drunk driver when you child drives, or some mass murderer with a gun in schools?
You poor Americans need to emigrate to countries where one doesn’t face a life of worrying about being mowed down by drunk drivers or gun toting citizens , no wonder yous are rated 121 least peaceful country in the world your love for guns comes at a price buddy suck it up.
Seeing as you’re now frothing at the mouth about drunks driving what about the simple truth that those same drunks have the “right “ to carry a gun or do you not have a problem with that either?
if there is no god how do you postulate is the source of the universe?
The intellectually honest answer is we don’t know , you instead easily side step this by inserting a god into the equation , where did god come from a proof will help greatly?
things cannot just poof out of nothing and
You’re asserting that can you prove it?
atheists are the ones denying a creator
I personally have denied or accepted nothing I’m saying you are the one making the affirmative claim as in “ their is a god “ the burden of proof is with you
when literally nothingg is what they are saying created material universe.
Who said that? How do you know and assume what all atheists say and think?
That's a good question. Yes I do. I think if you want to start a path to 'truths' you must first have faith. However it is important to recognize when faith blinds you to truth.
Regarding the term faith people who believe in a god are doing so out of spiritual conviction which is entirely different to the way the term is misapplied and used by a fair proportion of believers in a god to somehow shift the goalposts during debate
If someone said to me “you have faith your car will work in the morning when you wish to go on a journey “ I can reasonably say “yes” based on a confidence that this has happened on numerous occasions in the past so my confidence in such is justified going on previous results.
Some believers merge or seamlessly switch back and forth between these meanings during conversations about their god. But they are not the same”
Yes. Spiritual faith for loved ones who have died.
Regarding spiritual faith how does one know how and where to apply it? How does a believer justify picking one god over another if faith works for the existence of any god? Why, for example, is faith in the existence of Allah or Ganesha more or less valid than faith in the other gods?
I believe that people have faith in other Gods. I believe in Spirituality, energy, and I love researching other ideas on it all. I believe there is the possibility that there is more than the Christian God, that possibly other gods exist, but do I know for sure?
That’s an entirely fair and honest approach
No. As I said, I don't believe it's possible to know for sure until you're dead. I'm still malleable on my faith but the core holds with personal experiences and faith combined. I do believe in God, but I also believe there's more to it.
Is your belief based on just the fact that you know and feel there is a god or do you reference or have a need for the Bible and it’s words and teachings?
Scientific fact is indeed a rational path to take but many Scientists are divided on important theories and idea's even with rigorous testing.
The definition of theory when used by scientists is ......A scientific theory is an explanation of an aspect of the natural world that can be repeatedly tested and verified in accordance with the scientific method, using accepted protocols of observation, measurement, and evaluation of results. Where possible, theories are tested under controlled conditions in an experiment. Wikipedia
Some scientists may hold different views but if they are going to do so they had better be on solid ground as the whole process is open to peer review.
I have dealt in the past with so called “creation scientists “ and others who have degrees in science but are into pseudoscientific “fields “ and none ever get to the peer reviewed stage.
Incidentally I’m not implying you were suggesting this it’s just an example of what I’ve experienced in the past
For me, faith and science are like math and art. Both are equally important to stimulate the mind.
Interesting , unfortunately for me spiritual faith had the total opposite effect on me when I was a believer , I would also say it took me a long time to shed the many negative effects it had upon me , this is from a person who was born and raised a devout Catholic in (a then) repressive religion dominated society
Closing oneself the the possibility of anything just closes the mind to new ideas.
I agree , here is the deal though when I was believer I was prone to believe in the supernatural , faith healing , telepathy , etc , etc , and most my fellow believers did also as humans love the mysterious and the strange as we also liked the idea of embracing the possibilities of new ideas.
The best thing ever happened me regarding belief was a love of magic as an entertainment form especially close up magic , I became an amateur magician eventually specializing in the field as a psychic and as a fully fledged pro , this is where one bends cutlery, makes predictions, talks to the dead , etc , etc , all purely for entertainment this gave me my grounding in how easily duped and fooled the average Joe is.
The great James Randi once said “ Anyone claiming to use psychic powers is doing it the hard way “ he’s right , a mentalist using his training in trickery is always spot on , a so called psychic who fails repeatedly is no match and cannot come close to matching the ingenious trickery of the average mentalist yet they say they’re genuine “psychics “. Non can or ever has given a reasonable demonstration to those qualified as in magicians to spot trickery , the James Randi foundation in the U S offers one million to anyone that can demonstrate genuine psychic powers they have come from across the globe and all failed miserably
It’s an eye opener to perform and see the reaction of lay people may refuse to accept its trickery and will tell you “you have a gift but you’re denying it “, what I experienced was an opening of the mind not a closing
Hope that makes sense for you, I'd be happy to try to explain something better if you need.
You made perfect sense , and I get where you’re coming from and thank you for taking the time to do so.
Faith in God is by definition a strong belief based on spiritual apprehension rather than pro
Do you think faith is a reasonable path to find truths?
Are there any other positions you hold merely on faith?
Have you faith that the thousands of other gods also exist , and if not how did you rule them out, was it through reason or faith?
Scientific facts are based on solid evidence and are never faith based, scientists also will accept any counters to claims if they hold up to rigorous testing and surely this is the most rational path to take , this path can never be taken with supernatural claims as they have to taken on faith and nothing else
No not at all , only a lunatic would suggest making a society more peaceful, the U S is sitting proudly at 121 first place in world peace rankings. My dreadful country is in 10th spot rating as a peaceful society , to solve this shameful situation we need to introduce guns into our society so we can compete effectively with the U S .
The U S A has a ranking of 121, just above Myanmar and well below Honduras, El Salvador, Rwanda, and Burkina Faso .....Oh dear
Are you under the impression that gulag is the Soviet word for "home" you pointlessly stupid idiot?
It would have been preferable to most soviet homes
Prisoners were kept in the gulag. If you think maximum security prisons in the US are a fun ride then go live out your dream and hang a few blacks. See if you're right.
Right , so a gulag is preferable to a modern day prison got ya ....Why would I hang Blacks you’re the one thinks they’re scum but yet you love Muslims and Hamas .....you’re weird
I made a debate with an informative video on why the USSR was a much better country both economically and socially than you ass hats have been lead to believe
I read an account of life in the many gulags funny none of the “guests” mentioned this , maybe I should have read accounts of the constant queues outside local shops with people clutching ration cards to get a loaf of bread .....happy days in Noms world .....
the community through sheer rationality and logic rather than by manipulation and force via social constructs or authority.
Indeed with people like you as part of this Utopian system where you spend your entire day harassing , threatening and bullying others , sounds like hell on earth
I have original copies of child porn tapes that I filmed myself
Along with your Mein Kampf
LOL, I is both bad at the writins is it?
Ehhh yes you are pretty bad
my arguments consist of pretending my opponent said something they did not and cherry picking lies from extreme left wing articles.
I am less honest than Mingiwuwu and less intelligent to boot.
I know , I know
