Also about gods and religious+297It's irritating how some religious people find atheism such a radical idea. There are 720 established religions in the world. Rejecting hundreds of gods to believe in none is not that different from rejecting hundreds of gods to believe in one. Amirite?
Also by yvan125+70A Canadian linguist of Acadian origin,R Landry, has clearly defined two forms of bilingalism, an« additive bilingualism » which is likely to enrich the mother-language elements and on the contrary a « substractive bilingualism which weaken or impoverish the basic elements of the mother- language or the source language. Could linguistic planners use these definitions, although sketchy , in devising accurate and efficient second language learning programs? amirite?
Also by yvan125+88When bilingualism is instituted in a country, does it always benefit to linguistic minorities for whom it is primary designed.There are many forms of bilingualism. There are for example, statutory bilingualism in Canada or regional bilingualism in Belgium. Which is the best to ensure a good and efficient government? amirite?
Also about religious+14Why do religious people act like being religious allows them to do what they want? amirite?
Also by yvan125+62Do you agree with some linguists that the term «diglossia» describes more faithfully the linguistic reality of a country, a region or a community than the vague and imprecise term« bilingualism» when two and more languages , sociolects, dialects or idiolects come into contact in a well defined linguistic territory? amirite?
Also about religious and believed+253As much as you hate it when religious people try to convert you, if you genuinely believed in hell, you wouldn't want others to end up in it either, amirite?
Also about gods and greeks+109How did the Greeks decide that there were Greek gods? It must have been like guy 1: why is there lightning? Guy 2: oh there must be a giant powerful dude in the sky making it happen. And he has a whole family of Gods. Guy 1: yeah that totally makes sense, amirite?
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 believed+336Sigmund Freud believed that the ultimate motivation for all our internal struggles, is our libidos. For example, he believed if you dreamt of apples, you were symbolically thinking of breasts. One of his more famous theories proposed that baby boys "want" their mothers. He was by no means an idiot, but he was clearly obsexxed with certain things, amirite?
Also about religious and believed+132Regardless of your religious affiliation, you have to respect how dedicated Jesus Christ was to his beliefs (assuming he existed). I mean, he did not betray what he believed in, even when he was put to death by crucifixion, a truly horrific way to die, amirite?
