Ok, here is my issue with legalizing weed. I work as a delivery truck driver, and my job requires my to maintain a CDL, (which is under federal regulations), so since the federal government says weed is illegal but I live in a state where recreational use is legal, all because I hold a CDL and work as a driver, I cannot smoke it. This is due to random drug testing (which I assume will increase in those states), and if I am sitting at a traffic light and get rear-ended, I am required by DOT Regulations to submit to a drug and alcohol test before the end of my shift, even though I am not clearly at fault. I see a problem with the federal government legalizing weed, if that were so, then consider how many 18-wheelers (layman’s terms) might be

Oh the self-righteous atheist, how grand you must feel. You know how the Bible is false and that you disregard eyewitness testimony. Tell me, if the Bible is so wrong, them why does it speak truth about the human in general? I mean, a carefull reading would reveal that man is not exactly good, in fact, evil at heart. The evidence is the daily news. But you say you want evidence, I give you the Bible, now you must refute it. If you do not carefully examine the evdience, then how can you make a proper judgment? Prove the contents of the Bible is false.

How can we say that Plato's work is for real but the Bible must be put under "other" tests to prove validity? Darwin said he "observed" whatever, so Darwin's eyewitness account is ok, but the Bible's is not, I believe that is called a "double standard." So since you know that this event did not happen, please enlighten us on your evidence, please, the Christian communit is holding it's collective breath? And I like the Jepordy version of this...Skeptic's foolish arguements for $500 Alex.

Hey George, you statements are not accurate. For one, if you understood Roman law at the time concerning "seals" on tombs, you might reconsider your positions. For one, a guard was posted at all times because the Jewish leaders did not want ssomeone to steal the body. Second, the guard abandoned his post when the stone rolled away, that was a death sentence for the guard. To say that the disciples were not eyewitnesses would mean that you would have to supply the evidence to support your claim. If you place the Bible on a different set of tests to prove vilidity than any other ancient book would be considered dscrimination. The Resurrectionof Jesus Christ took place, and the proof is the Bible and the eyewitness accounts of the empty tomb.
