That's the point a few have made, and I accept it. Hey, it's a point of view like anyone else's. If you don't object to my high horse, I won't object to your low ass. David Flechard

Louis, I take it you haven't bothered reading any of the Echo before you posted the above.

It's the interpretation of the word "founded" I take issue with. Of course she is, in part anyway. But you won't understand the distinction until you understand the difference between necessary prerequisites and sufficient prerequisites. The birth isn't inconsequential, it is necessary; but in terms of "ranking" if you like, you have the right order there. Do you consider that the torture of Jesus is a necessary prior condition for the Resurrection? (Forget the fact that you may dispute the

Shit, they couldn't afford to BUY one, even "hold the onions".

I can list almost any number of things or events without which Christianity would not exist. Does that make them all "focal points"? David Flechard

You are approved. Please wait a moment so that I can loan Laurie a little red tractor with which to pull his head out of the way.

The truth works well, Laurie. You should try it some time.

It was originally Thin Man (Nagasaki was Fat Man), but late design changes led to a squatter shape and the name change to Fat Boy. How odd, to think that "damage limitation" could be a consideration in the circumstances. But plutonium it was. "Poison fire." David Flechard

I have to disagree with you on that one, Marty. Ignorance is frequently a principal cause of the third world's problems, or even those of the first and second, as you imply. But it is not the sole cause or even the chief. Sometimes it's inability to act effectively. Sometimes we know what the problem is, but cannot get round the _political_ barriers. Sometimes we know the answers ("let's all dig wells, build hospitals and schools, plant crops, and the

What is more important, the symbol, or the entity the symbol represents? You are expressing a point of view, which you are entitled to, but perhaps you are not the most reliable source for definining what Christianity is or is based on. Correct. Alternatively, it means I have a different view from you. Having a different point of view from yourself is not a badge of ignorance. It cannot be "regardless of how they see it," for the context here

Most are 1/2 or so shorts. Here are a few I remember: The Bank Dick Never Give a Sucker an Even Break My Little Chickadee (with Mae West, one of the few female co-stars that could run off one-liners tits to nose with W.C.) The Six-Day Bicycle Race W.C. was also in _Oliver Twist_

"Bummer"? What will you be doing if you find out the messengers were right all along? I don't share in the common pessimism on that subject. I have an optimistic view of human nature. David Flechard

You give yourself too much credit signing your name as 'peabrain', Laurie. Your brain is far smaller than the particles observed at Fermi.

Nope, never have. Sounds like I'll have to make a trip to the library, though...

Reread what I said. I was speaking of the word witch, not the word wicca. Another reading comprehension difficulty of yours, Steph? Then we agree. Thanx. Correction: as per Pat Sherman's quote which you arbitrarily try to conform to some standard you have never cited fully or correctly. BTW, I find it highly amusing that you might censure Pat for _maybe_ misspelling words in an ancient tongue, and you can't spell words in your (presumably) mother tongue. As for the

[...snip..] And your explanation of the background radiation and the red shift is? And you disprove that theory and observations with what? Distance *is* time. Oh? What do you call light from a galaxy 1 million light years away... other than a photo of that galaxy 1 million years ago? In innumerable ways, unless you've regressed to the hunter-gatherer mode. Even then, I doubt you've managed to reverse the immunizations your mother mistakenly arranged for you. No, you're a slave

Ivy Iverson wrote in a message to All Common courtesy, or the lack thereof, is religious morality, or the lack thereof? How droll. There are no ethics or mores without religion? Cites, please? But artificial life simulations do show cooperation to be a survival trait and game theory validates such as a strategy. And which science has proven this? Peer-reviewed cites only. Those spiritual men such as Tomas de Torquemada?
