    Who fell in Eden? Man or God?

    Absolutely. Christianity almost immediately became a religion of believing and obeying endless requirements. It has virtually nothing to do with really transforming yourself or becoming a better person.

    I have a friend who is a Gnostic Bishop with a Sanctuary in CA. I like gnosticism. It's closest to what I understand.

    Jehovah Unmasked explains the Gnostic version of the creation account.

    Have you read "Jehovah Unmasked" by Nathaniel J. Merritt? You likely have.

    Reasoning on this pretty much made me give up on the idea of organized religion. Tree of life was guarded by an angel with a flaming sword? Before swords were invented....... The Bible story of A & E seems to be that we are nothing but pawns in a giant bet between Satan and God - God bets that humans will be loyal to him under pressure and Satan bets they will not. Having once been a JW (for most of my life) the blood transfusion issue is one that still peeves me. When the nations around Israel were sacrificing their children to Molech, God said that such a thing never entered into his heart and Israel was not to so the same. Yet JW's sacrifice their children to their God in the name of blood transfusions and don't see the similarity.

    ISIS interview.

    Parents make choices for their children all the time. If a parent chooses to raise jihadiis, then let them eat the consequences of that. It's not even comparable to say deliberately raising your kids to be terrorist killers and hauling them off to a battlefield is the same as forcing them in a hijab. Smarten up. Actually I brought this up before on this forum. Why were his parents allowed to raise jihaddis and drag them off to the battlefields? Because there isn't one of you here that would ever allow the government to interfere in what a Muslim parent chooses for their children. I also asked why the family who did this to him is allowed to continue living in Canada, and continue promoting jihadi/terrorist ideals. Again, there isn't one of you here that would allow any governmental interference in Muslim beliefs. I'm not the one supporting parents who do this to their children. You support them by not allowing it happen, but advocating a completely "hands off" approach to Muslim extremism.

    Since we allow them to drift back and forth between barbarism and progressiveness, using both to their advantage. They want to kill without impugnity AND be protected from the consequences. I do not agree.

    Yet, you have no problem letting Muslims play both sides. I'm just saying - let them make the choice - which the Khadr's did. They CHOSE to not live under our progresive treatment. You're the one advocating that Muslims should be able to do whatever they want - drift back and forth between the two worlds, acording to whatever benefits them the most at the time, AND pay terrorists millions of dollars. You're the one with the double standards.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I'm advocating. It's relevant because this is the mentality of the people we are dealing with. If they want to train their children to be killers before they are adults, then why should they get to fall back on the "But, he's just a child" arguement after they get caught and demand payments be made? Kind of like having your cake and eating it too. They chose to NOT live under our more progressive treatment. I have a problem with them actively choosing to live this way and then demanding special treatment and cash when it doesn't work out.

    This week in Islam

    http://www.euronews.com/2018/04/26/islam-party-stirs-controversy-ahead-of-belgian-elections Belgium will get its one chance to fight back against this in the next election. But the article points out there are 780,000 Muslims in Belgium. This article adds some detail https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12203/belgium-islamic-state Perhaps its time for the world to wake up. The empty platitudes about how Islam is no threat to the West and that Muslims do not want to bring religious extremism to other countries is nothing but lies - I doubt it's the Belgium people who are supporting this party and leading its rise to power - so who is?

    US vs Iran

    I think this is great - tackling the extremism in the religion AND the culture that perpetuates the violence. I hope they are able to make some progress. I imagine that the people who insist Muslim extremism has nothing whatsoever to do with the religion or culture think this is pretty stupid though.

    Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

    I think that's what we're all wondering.
  15. I don't think it's the sole cause. I think men's emotional and physical attributes have always been accomodated in the workplace. Traditionally, in our patriarchal society, women's emotional and physical attributes have not been accomodated. We're working on it, but it's slow. I'm also not sure that men's ability to work long overtime hours while ignoring their families has been a positive thing for society. Or for men.
