Human nature is a fallen nature. This means that human nature is sinful. A sinful nature in the end will only end in destruction because of the nature of sin itself. Humanity, one way or another, will destroy itself (there are many ways I can tell you how) despite their well-meaning and good intentions. Human nature has something other lifeforms do not have. It's called "free will". This means that humans can act outside of its nature. Humans can use free will to do something opposite or counter to that of our nature.
Trump is the best president ever! He's the only honest guy who calls it as it is. Everyone who opposes Trump is just trying to screw him over and dig up whatever dirt they can find to incriminate him. It's not hard to incriminate anyone if you really wanted to.
once again the whole argument, "I see no reason to worship one who accepts the cruelty and injustice we see every day"....
that statement tells everything you need to know: you do not understand the doctrine of Human Depravity and the doctrine of Sin. Stop blaming God.
The biggest reason why these questions continue to get asked is because they are based from ignorance and lack of knowledge and understanding of the subject.
I'm sorry but all the above arguments and statements prove exactly what I said. Listen to all the squabbling. It will never end because everyone thinks they know the truth and everyone thinks the way they perceive the world is the real world. FALSE. Everyone is false and true at the same time (true in thats how they perceive the world and false in that how they perceive things doesn't mean it's true or reality), therefore this entire argument is nullified and can hold no water. It's just going to be a million people squabbling like we have done since the dawn of civilization who is right and wrong, true and untrue, the best and not the best, yada yada yada, and in 100 years from now, people will still squabble in the exact same way.
You are forgetting one major flaw in your argument: you nor any human on this planet even knows what is TRUE. All your beliefs and truths are simply subjective. It may be true to you but it is not true for another. If you are God himself, then your perception is perfect and without flaw, but you are not. Therefore whatever you say is not accurate. It's only accurate to how you perceive the world and truth.
It really depends on the woman. Each individual case is different based on what that woman has gone through in her life, how she was raised, what her personal beliefs are, her experiences (good and bad), etc.
If you are looking for generalizations, then I'd say the most common traits a woman is looking for in a man are:
1) confidence: even if the confidence is fake or misguided, women are naturally drawn and attracted to someone who exudes confidence. In the same token, they are not drawn to men who are indecisive, unsure of themselves, and always uncertain of everything.
2) intelligence: intelligence today is what braun/strength was in the cave days. If you have intelligence, you have strength and power.
3) humor: women are emotional creatures, therefore a stale male who has no emotional diversity (ie. no sense of humor) is a draw off for women. They are drawn to a man who is able to make them feel emotions, especially humor
Sorry Auntie, I think you are off-based. It is true that blacks were oppressed and enslaved but it's not true that they are unable to make better their own lives today. Sure there is some covert racism around and within the system, but it is largely gone now. There are millions of successful black people in this world and America who are living lives like Kings and Queens better than most whites, too. So if those blacks could make it, why can't the others who are just perpetuating their role as victims, turning to a life of crime, drugs, gangs, and choosing to perpetuate the cycles of the ghettos and the hoods.
Another good example is Asians. Asians were also oppressed. Chinese and other east asians were heavily oppressed and faced racism. An argument can easily be made today that racism towards east asians is bigger than blacks now. Blacks are praised in the media, tv, movies, even elected as President of the US. Asians are still under the radar, under-represented in the media and if you look at what happen in history, East Asia was dirt poor as hell just like Africa. The difference? In the same time span, East Asians ascended to the top of the global ranks in almost every socio-economic category out there. Why haven't blacks done the same? Nobody is holding blacks down anymore, except black people themselves.
Can't disagree with you there. BB was definitely a captivating show. I was so hooked the moment I saw it and I couldn't stop watching it. I hadn't seen the show while it was on air. I only saw the show AFTER it was completed and off the air. I was binge watching the entire show over a 1-2 week span and I couldn't stop lol. Better Call Saul has the benefit of starting on the shoulders of BB so it was quite easy for me to continue watching it and get hooked as well. I think for someone hadn't seen BB and started watching Saul first, would not be as interested or maybe get bored because they wouldn't really know or understand the timeline.
Gilligan also said how the timing and pace of Saul was much different. He intentionally used long takes, slower moving scenes and pace to capture a different feeling. It's actually quite refreshing. But more than anything, I love the character of Saul...odenkirk also is captivating.
Good responses, fair points. But I still don't see it. Logically doesn't make sense. For example, let's say you are working a job that requires 5 people you have to split $1250 five ways when the job is complete. 4 of the 5 people do the work and work very hard to earn their portion of the pay. The other one did absolutely nothing, just played video games on his smartphone. So when the job is completed and the group receives their $1250 pay, why should everyone equally receive $250 including that 1 guy who did no work for it?
That's how I see it. Doesn't make sense that muslims who did nothing for Christianity and oppose all of it's holidays can still benefit from the days off and relax, have fun, enjoy life on the backs of a Christian holiday.
Same goes the opposite way. I would not feel right if I was benefiting a free paid holiday based on someone else's history that I oppose and am against.
Here's another example. Let's say you are all opposed to Nazi Hitler Day. It's a national holiday and everyone gets the day off, paid vacation. Would you think it's fine for anti-Nazi folks to have that day off, get paid on Nazi Day? It seems that if you truly are anti-Nazi, you would not take the day off and benefit from it for something you truly are against and oppose.
Of course it is...as long as they rule. Nazi society was a peaceful society. The only reason why they had all that violence was because of the people who didn't surrender. Any organization is a peaceful one once they have it completely their way. Very simple logic.
Actually, every "race" is disappearing. Slowly the world is becoming more "mixed" and therefore blacks, whites, asians, hispanics, you name it, are all disappearing and the only group that is going to grow and outnumber everyone else are "mixed race" people.
So we are all on the same boat. I think it's good to have some mixing and good to have some "same race" people....best of both worlds. But with cloning pretty much here, we could always create any race we wanted if we felt there was a shortage of it and needed more lol.
The US has to stop building military bases around the world. They already have over 800 around the world with 250,000 troops deployed/stationed.
China has built 1 island in the South China sea, and America is all up in arms about it? Talk about taking the plank out of your own eye before judging the speck in someone else's.
LOL winston. Sorry, I had a chuckle at that one. No, China is not building islands to help with their population control. In fact, China's population will be shrinking very soon because they are already have low fertility rates not enough to maintain it's population so in a couple decades, it will top off and then after that will decline dramatically every decade after.
There are other countries that you need to be more concerned about with overpopulation. By 2100, Nigeria will have 1 billion people, Pakistan will have 1 billion and Indonesia will have 1 billion, and those countries are small compared to the land size of China.
man left to himself will always go insane.
Human nature is deprived. There is nothing man can do to fix himself.
So if left to our own devices, we'll always succumb to our very nature. Man's own quest for perfection will ultimately lead him to become the very thing he was trying to eradicate. You see the full circle?
I would love the idea of creating "tiered cities".
So all the people who have never been convicted of a crime could live in a society at a high tier (quality of life).
Those that have a record would fall in a lower tier and would have to work hard or live well for a certain period of time in order to elevate to a top tier society.
And the very low would live amongst fellow like-minded folks to get a taste of their own medicine and hopefully teach them a lesson. If you wanna live in a city where everyone robs and assaults each other, fine, go ahead and let's see how you like it. Those who want to be civilized and contributors to society will live in a society with like-minded people.
