The voters have decided that Watchful_questioneer is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.
Also about religious+33You cannot have both freedom (as proposed in the U.S.) and equal representation of all peoples (perticularly religious and non religious) on the same "ship". There will continually be disagreement and political strife. Amirite?
Also about religious texts+185Atheists and agnostics reading religious texts isn't needless by any means, I actually think it's a great idea, but anyone can see the societal and historical impacts that organized religion has had. A thorough understanding of specifics isn't actually necessary for someone to realize that they have a problem with religion itself, amirite?
Also by Watchful_questioneer+34People's personalities are a direct result of what they're born like, and their experiences (how they're rewarded/punished by life for things they do and how they act). People's choices are a result of their personalities, and people's success depends on their choices. If it all ties back to things we don't have an impact on, then all we really are is our bodies and our experiences. Where is the free will, Amirite?
Also about texts+70Even though it's flattering, it's kind of annoying when someone texts you when they're with someone else, because they're usually half assed boring texts amirite?
Also about religious texts+200Most people who argue against the words of the Bible, the Qu'ran, or other religious texts probably haven't even read them, amirite?
Also about Religion+64How growing old gracefully without getting old, old, old? Felix Leclerc, a Canadian folksinger and poet once said at the end of his life: « It's not because I am an old apple tree that I yield shrivel or dried up apples.» and Thomas Merton wrote these following lines:«You will be young as long as you remain receptive to all which is beautiful, good and high; receptive also to the message of the nature, of man and above all of God. Lacordaire, a dominicain father concluded in his old age: «I have not experience old age but many successive youths,», amirite?
Also by Watchful_questioneer+43The saddest thing about natural selection is that it selects practicality over happiness. A creature can have an adaptation that makes it infinitely happier being alive than a creature that can run faster, and it will still likely not be passed on, Amirite?
Also by Watchful_questioneer+64It's ridiculous, immature, and stupid when either side of a radical debate tries to make phony arguments against their own case and pretend the other side made them, amirite?
