Hey John, I think your assuming that good ole' cabin boy can actually makes sense of your article. I had to laugh because I encounter many semi-educated skeptics, and it seems daily anymore. Thanks to Richard Dawkins and our top-of-the-line education system, even the X-Box playin' Potato chip munchin', high school drop out thinks they can add to a conversation by copy and pasting Dawkins' arguments. What's scarier yet, is when they try to add their thoughts to an already defeated debate. Let me give you the latest "prove it" by an individual on the "Debunking Christianity" web site: Name these 500 witnesses. List their birth and death dates and give us some background on each. Give a fuller summary of the life of each of these 12 disciples

How the New York Times Covers Evil

All one has to do is look at the so-called leadership of New York as a whole. Bloomburg as mayor of NYC and gov. Cuomo. Is it no wonder that the liberal publications and news from the local networks report stories as they do. As they say in the military "It rolls downhill."
under the influence, but is it right to say to one group you can smoke it, but to the other (because of job) you cannot? The answer is yes and no. There are many problems with legalizing weed (I am speaking concerning my situation), can we trust some people to only smoke on the weekend and not while they drive, can there be a drug test that can determine when a person last smoked? What also bothers me is that, now, I have to be even more aware of those folks that might be under in influence of pot. People are people, and I see an increase in traffic accidents and pedestrian injuries because people will drive while under the influence and smoke it while they drive. If that were not true, then why are there those that drink alcohol and drive?
Sorry, my computer is acting up. I did not realize that it posted twice and incomplete.
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.
