They make baseless assertions that they claim are the truth. Do you think they might be compensating for a lack of evidence, like short guys compensate for their lack of stature with an aggressive and confrontational personality?

I’d like to learn but find the letters and pronunciations hard to remember. It might be easier to learn from a fluent speaker or language leader. Anyone know a good source for learning biblical Hebrew?

From the news today

Atheist Bibles-For-Porn Swap Riles Campus

A college atheist group is offering students pornography in exchange for Bibles.

Atheist Agenda calls the exchange “Smut for Smut,” prompting prayers and protests from Christian students at the University of Texas San Antonio campus.

Student Monica Cornado says it’s offensive to compare pornography to “the Word of God.”

University officials say the atheist group has the right to conduct the swap.

UTSA spokesman David Gabler says, “As long as students are not violating laws or violating the Constitution, they have the freedom of speech and assembly.”

The Atheist Agenda started at UTSA in 2005, and their first “Smut for Smut” campaign blew up into a national media sensation, reports CBS affiliate KENS in San Antonio. Past president Thomas Jackson was deluged with interview requests, and debated Tucker Carlson, the bow-tie-wearing conservative pundit, on MSNBC.

This year, organizers said a group of Christians amassed to protest the event, and one protester ripped a sign from someone’s hands. But police kept a watchful gaze over students involved in heated debates, and did not report any violence.

“This is ultimately why this is going on,” Lewis said. “It’s an ice breaker to get people talking about these things.”

What do you think ?

Okay so my best friend and I have been planning to go to Rock The Universe (a christian concert thing at universal studios) all summer together because she went last year and i didn’t get to go, and this will be her last year with us (she’s moving in spring) so i’m trying to spend a lot of time with her ‘cuz I’m REALLY sad she’s leaving, so I was gonna go with her and her whole church, and see some of my other friends that I havnt seen in awhile down there…

On the other hand I’ve been invited to this huge surprise birthday party (that my bff wasn’t invited to because she doesnt go to my school) for my other friend, who’s turning 16. The date of the party wasn’t confirmed when I agreed to it (they had to see what date they could rent this building out) and I was soooooo excited ‘cuz this would be my first real highschool party and my OTHER best friend was going to go with me and we were all excited together.

Well the date got confirmed and… it’s on the same weekend that I’m going down to Orlando!!!

Now I have to pick between my two best friends (well, one best friend and the other + the rest of my friends) and I don’t know…

I’ve already explained to both that I’m going to have to choose and they’re waiting on my answer… But every time I think I’ve picked one I get really upset I’ll miss the other and I change my mind!

So… now I’m asking YOU! Which one do you think will be better….?

Christ Like Reply From Kiss Caf

Since past few years, dating industry has gained a substantial expansion… The key fact beside the growth is the addition of new strategies to serve singles in the base of same race, choices and community. This is the only cause behind the increasing popularity of special interest dating or niche online dating web sites. Currently dating is turning out to be easier for singles due to the advanced services that dating site are providing. We can take the case of Christian Speed Dating. Christian Speed Dating is getting really popular between Christian singles’ communities. The Christianity has been affected a lot with this type of dating ability. It is obvious for Christian singles to find a right Christian sole-mate or date from a general dating web site. The reason is that they are having more options in the Christian dating sites to find a mate but they accurately don’t know who the right person for them is. In other words we can say there is a fear of getting confused is always there in their mind.

Such speed dating events are organized to offer a real time face to face interaction between preferred dates.

Before Christian singles were seeking for a relationship and they were spending their time and cash on internet dating web sites to find a right mate for them.

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy speaks to his Class on the Problem Science has with GOD, The ALMIGHTY.

He asks one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .

Professor: You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?

Student: Yes, sir.

Professor: So you Believe in GOD?

Student: Absolutely, sir.

Professor: Is GOD Good?

Student: Sure.

Professor: Is GOD ALL – POWERFUL?

Student: Yes.

Professor: My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him.

Most of us would attempt to Help Others who are ill.

But GOD didn’t.

How is this GOD Good then? Hmm?

( Student is silent )

Professor: You can’t answer, can you?

Let’s start again, Young Fella.

Is GOD Good?

Student: Yes.

Professor: Is Satan good?

Student: No.

Professor: Where does Satan come from?

Student: From . . . GOD . . .

Professor: That’s right.

Tell me son, is there evil in this World?

Student: Yes.

Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it?

And GOD did make Everything. Correct?

Student: Yes.

Professor: So who created evil?

( Student does not answer )

Professor: Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness?

All these terrible things exist in the World, don’t they?

Student: Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who Created them?

( Student has no answer )

Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you.

Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD?

Student: No, sir.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?

Student: No sir.

Professor: Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD?

Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?

Student: No sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

Professor: Yet you still Believe in HIM?

Student: Yes.

Professor: According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist.

What do you say to that, son?

Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.

Professor: Yes. Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?

Professor: Yes.

Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?

Professor: Yes.

Student: No sir. There isn’t.

( The Lecture Theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events )

Student: Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat,

a Little Heat or No Heat.

But we don’t have anything called Cold.

We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No Heat, but we can’t go any further after that.

There is no such thing as Cold.

Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat.

We cannot Measure Cold.

Heat is Energy.

Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.

( There is Pin – Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )

Student: What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?

Professor: Yes. What is Night if there isn’t Darkness?

Student: You’re wrong again, sir.

Darkness is the Absence of Something.

You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, and Flashing Light . . .

But if you have No Light constantly, you have Nothing and its called Darkness, isn’t it?

In reality, Darkness isn’t.

If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn’t you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, Young Man?

Student: Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is Flawed.

Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?

Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality.

You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD.

You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure.

Sir, Science can’t even explain a Thought.

It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one.

To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that

Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing.

Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it.

Now tell me, Professor, do you Teach your Students that they Evolved from a Monkey?

Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.

Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir ?

( The Professor shakes his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument is going )

Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and

cannot even prove that this Process is an On – Going Endeavor,

are you not teaching your opinion, sir?

Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

( The Class is in Uproar )

Student: Is there anyone in the Class who has ever Seen the Professor’s Brain?

(The Class breaks out into Laughter )

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever Heard the Professor’s Brain, Felt it, Touched or Smelt it? . . .

No one appears to have done so.

So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that

you have No Brain, sir.

With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The Room is Silent. The Professor stares at the Student, his face unfathomable)

Professor: guess you’ll have to take them on Faith, son.

Student: That is it sir . . .

the Link between Man GOD is FAITH.

That is all that Keep Things Moving Alive.
