Re: Not Your Typical Christmas Ad

+100

Can't even imagine anything like this happening in the current conflicts. Not sure which would be more unlikely - Muslims responding to a Christian Christmas carol or American soldiers actually singing one.

Re: abortion discussion

I saw an article recently about how the mortality rate from nearly all causes has been going down in recent times except for the rate of suicide which has been going up. This did not surprise me very much as I would suspect there to be some kind of correlation between suicide and abortion rates. I'v...

Re: Election 2014

Well, I think I'm officially over celebrating the Republican victory after reading the article below.

"Senator John McCain chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, backed by a GOP majority..."

Pretty scary words to me.

Re: Flu Vaccines: Scam Central

Flu vaccines are mainly recommended for vulnerable populations (elderly etc). They seem to recommend it for everybody at both my place of employment and my wife's so are they not following guidelines? And also as part of the vulnerable population for shingles what does everybody think of that vacci...

Re: Election 2014

I haven't heard anyone advocating open borders - who is saying that? Given the situation on the southern border it seems to me that we practically have open borders already. I believe I read that 94% of those crossing illegally are not showing up at the deportation hearings they are told to attend ...

Election 2014

I think it might have been one of the most important ones in my lifetime because it squares off Obama's intention to create an open-borders (democrat-voting) America against the majority of the American people who think there is some semblance of a culture left that they would like to preserve.

Re: Figuring Out Religion

Yes indeed. Life is all about searching for the correct worldview isn't it? Searching for it or living it, definitely. When Christians talk about the correct worldview I always think they are talking about their religious doctrines which they think are the correct ones, beyond dispute. They remind ...

This explains why it’s hard to concentrate on an empty stomach. That's at least one thing I would have to disagree with.
