<---- engaged
And having a girlfriend Isn't really a badge of honor that's as easy as breathing for me. Having a woman I love is a merit worthy occurance. You'll understand one day that its guys that think like you are the reason why women cheat.

I went to catholic school for 13 years and 4 years of theology in college. The verses were actually blatently sexist as women were seen to be lesser than men and quite incapable of performing "manly" duties. If you look at many bible verses women were often painted as evil and often responsible for corrupting their male counterparts. A woman was responsible for original sin for example, a woman cut off the head of john the baptist, a woman corrupted Samuel, A woman corrupted David. The bible is for what its worth extremely sexist, but again it is more food for thought as most priests have taught me. Not to taken literally but more symbolically. I even had a nun who taught us the story of Adam and Eve was purely symbolic and had its roots of origin by a man who was imprisioned though i cant remember specifically what nation. Mind you most priests and nuns study religion at some of the worlds best universities and have a much better understanding of the "symbolism" than do most zealotess born agains. Again i am an atheist now so my views are a little bit different

Ah, I see.

Was I taking something literally or do you mean that passages in the Bible shouldn't be taken literally?

Also, a lot of things in the Bible have historic reasons behind them. They aren't necessarily sexist if you actually look at the reasons they were written, or accept the fact that times were different. That's why some things change with society, certain practices, while other things don't: ten commandments. We are at opposite ends I think. I am actually "converting" to Catholicism and am going to begin RCIA in the fall.

... let every one of you in particular love his wife as himself: and let the wife fear her husband.

It does sound like it's trying to say the woman should be obedient but it also says that the man should love his wife as himself, and therefore treat her well, and cherish her. They are both supposed to "be there for" each other. It says for husbands to deliver themselves up for their wives, as Jesus did for His church, meaning to the point of the sacrifice of one's own life. Obedience does not always mean subservience, though it can.

And men were typically the head of the household back then. Different times. I think it's actually a lovely passage about how husband and wife should give each other their whole lives and beings, for they are indeed one, though the word fear does seem off-putting.

Ephesians 5:21-32 (21) and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.
(22) Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.(24)…the wives ought to be (subject) to their husbands in everything.(24)…as the church is subject to Christ, (24) For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.(33b) and let the wife see to it that she respect her husband. 1 Corinthians 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
I could go on and on. It was joke intentionally ignorant. I was a catholic but am now and atheist. But if you do your research a great deal of the bible encourages women's subservience to men. Not something i technically agree with but nonetheless true

don't be shooting up the school now, highschool is short you'll be done with it eventually and then as an adult you realize how little those people matter in the scheme of things. I never was picked on, i was just a fly under the radar kinda person. But for real i dont really talk to anyone i was in highschool with. I live in japan now shows you how much things change within a few years.

Kind of agreed. Don't get me wrong, I agree that happiness is better than sadness, but not without a specific desired circumstance. It is contingent upon someTHING else, namely, that specific desired circumstance, whatever that may be. Logic doesn't inform us that happiness is objectively, ultimately ~better~ than sadness (period, end of story), as you've said.
But even then, I don't think that's entirely relevant. I probably could have been more clear from the start, so I'm sorry for that, but my point was if one bases the truth of certain propositions simply off of their wanting it to be true, than they're working backwards, and have skewed any future, established facts to be distorted to fit their hasty conclusion.

Absolutely i lean more towards utilitarian beliefs. If we all acted based simply on measures of self-success and what makes us happy, people would act pretty irrationally. Momentary happiness based on current thoughts are not usually always the best decisions. For instance when i was a child i probably wanted super powers but that isnt exactly rational

i concur, but doesnt logic also inform us that happiness more preferable than sadness, therefore we live somewhat, but not entirely to maximize our potential for happiness

Listen it isnt that its right or wrong its that regardless of it being legal or not people will still get them regardless. Many doctors concur that it being legal prevents unnecissary deaths cause by alleyway abortions. People are going to make decisions in life regardless of what the government says, abortions are just as prominent now as they were when they were illegal. the point is your probably young and don't understand much about how the world works. Heroin is illegal for instances yet its still a huge problem in society.

well here's the thing, if your debt cap is raised, it means that the debt ceiling will exceed the current GDP (current GDP = 14.12tril. and the current debt ceiling is $14.29trill). if the debt ceiling is raised it will mean the current debt will almost certainly exceed the gdp, that's the same thing that happened to Greese. I'm not saying they shouldn't raise the debt cap, i'm just saying that's why it's a big deal.

my apologies for my original post, it's early where i am and i'm very tired.

You do realize regardless of the outcome the gov't has to vote for an increase on the debt ceiling, the current circumstance is being unresolved because they can't agree on a budget, not because they don't want to raise it. Also not raising the debt ceiling will cause for the first time in our history for our credit rating as a country to fall this will cause the result of getting charged more interest on certain specific things. But your reply is so vague i can tell you vaguely know what your talking about
