Do you think I don't know that? And it's a misinterpretation from what He meant, is my point. Not that I have any love for the RCC, but that is at least one thing, they are not included in. Peace

Well, Rbbi1, maybe you can tell me how I misunderstood, "Do I SOUND like I worship the RCC and it's fairy tales? Puh-lease give me more credit than that."

Maybe we're both talking past each other, I don't know. My point was, the 7 hills thing has not got a thing to do with Rome or the RCC. And I'm not saying that because I have any love for the RCC, far from it. Peace

liberal people's laws do more harm than any religion. They don't even understand that it's their laws that let bad people put the rest of us in danger. "bad people" is not based on what belief we hold, despite what the 100iq-ers say.

BS--and not a degree.

Analyses of large representative samples, from both the United States and the United Kingdom, confirm this prediction. In both countries, more intelligent children are more likely to grow up to be liberals than less intelligent children. For example, among the American sample, those who identify themselves as “very liberal” in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 106.4, whereas those who identify themselves as “very conservative” in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 94.8.

You are being a part of the 100iq-ers.
Quote:
It is difficult to define a whole school of political ideology precisely, but one may reasonably define liberalism (as opposed to conservatism) in the contemporary United States as the genuine concern for the welfare of genetically unrelated others and the willingness to contribute larger proportions of private resources for the welfare of such others. In the modern political and economic context, this willingness usually translates into paying higher proportions of individual incomes in taxes toward the government and its social welfare programs. Liberals usually support such social welfare programs and higher taxes to finance them, and conservatives usually oppose them.


Defined as such, liberalism is evolutionarily novel. Humans (like other species) are evolutionarily designed to be altruistic toward their genetic kin, their friends and allies, and members of their deme (a group of intermarrying individuals) or ethnic group. They are not designed to be altruistic toward an indefinite number of complete strangers whom they are not likely ever to meet or interact with. This is largely because our ancestors lived in a small band of 50-150 genetically related individuals, and large cities and nations with thousands and millions of people are themselves evolutionarily novel.

--- it appears to be something about the intelligent brain itself: Smart people may have a different emotional makeup, a personality that is more open to experience. Or it may be that high IQ at age ten eventually leads to more complex moral reasoning: In short, smart people alone may have the cognitive machinery that’s needed for more flexible analysis of political and moral quandaries.

The study, published in Psychological Science, showed that people who score low on I.Q. tests in childhood are more likely to develop prejudiced beliefs and socially conservative politics in adulthood.

In other words, liberals act like Jesus taught us to act---not just toward our families---but toward EVERYONE!

So the question is, does it matter if pone drops the F-bomb or if they yell FIDDLE-STICKS--if the intention, feelings and context are the same?


Or using the F-bomb when something really great happens instead of yelling OH YEAH!

Os it really the WORD that is obscene or the thought behind that word?

This shouldn't be in the religion forum, it is a political issue.
