  1. OldSkool, Great subject. You got my mind going and my heart racing. FYI-I heard they switched from Medical Mutual to Anthem last year. When I was on Staff I never knew about any government programs. We paid a lot out of pocket to have my child due to it being a high risk pregnancy and delivery. I knew I'd never be able to have any more children making squat $. A local person told me about WIC which was a blessing. My child was unable to be breastfed and the cost of formula is insane. So thankfully, WIC was helpful for that, otherwise we would've had no money whatsoever. Another topic for

  2. I've heard that before - just not from a TWIer - to which I replied, "Really?! And just who do you think pays for that. God? No, it's the people who do earn above the poverty level, and perhaps someday your children unless they continue the cycle, or maybe even China who has been quickly buying up all of our debt, you moron." And yes it is twisted.

  3. I think it's determined by the plus or minuses that are at the bottom of each post. If you spend a lot of time in the basement ( Politics and Tacks) your reputation would probably be very good or pi$$ poor. basically it's a popularity contest.

  4. Sooo.... Say a group of local believers decides to pool their resources and build a fellowship hall. Everything is hunkey-dorey. Then two of the group's members disagree with each other over some point of doctrine. Perhaps one says there was an Aramaic substrate, and another contends that the original autographs were in Greek. Neither one can understand why the other is being so pig-headed and obtuse. Their disagreement flares throughout the group, and soon there are two camps who cannot stand the sight of each other, much less sharing the same fellowship hall. They decide to split. Which g

  5. Why is it that - of all the endless "holy" writings of the ancient world - the BIBLE should be accepted in toto while all the others can (and of rights I guess SHOULD be)totally disregarded? Krishna is said to have defeated an evil enemy by striking him with a feather, Yogis are said to be able to levitate at will by focusing their minds, the Daruma - in a show of dedication and humility - clipped off his eyelids so he wouldn't go to sleep while praying - and eventually his legs simply melted away from lack of use, Mithra is said to have been born out of a rock and slayed a bull single-hande

  6. If you define a miracle as a verified breaking of the laws of physics I've only ever seen one. Here it is: How easy it would be to prove to the world that speaking in tongues is a genuine miracle - if it was. Just identify one of the "tongues of men" being spoken sufficiently well... and then verify that the manifester has had no earthly acquaintance with said language. Non? Until then, Geo. Aar's theory regarding speaking in tongues seems to obey Occam's Razor. Speech can be disassociated from thought content as any child shows in "jibberish." I still hold that speaking

  7. So, if biblical times were full of demigods, half-human/half-divine who were of miraculous births who walked on water and raised the dead who rose from the dead and ascended to Mt. Olympus... could it be? That these aspects of the four gospels are less than historical? If we admit that the four gospels contain significant, legendary, non-historical portions are we "of all men most miserable"? I trow not... we become of all people most intellectually honest. And many true riches of Christianity are allowed to come into focus. Good religion doesn't insist that less-than-rational, n
