We'll answer a few :

1) Simple , look at when all the damage has started / occured , & the advent of human capability to cause the harm . Only those with ve$ted intere$t in big business industries that caused the problem , would tell a different story . You can hear the opposite of Truth from professors at BP Berkley , and other schools funded by the guilty parties .

Glaciers that formed as the result of the Katabolla "the meaning of the word FOUNDATION in Greek Eph.1:4 " (9,000 , not 6,000 yrs. ago) in (Jeremiah.4 ),... that we saw back when I was in 6th grade , were completely gone 8 years ago .
They can NOT reform because of several really cold winters . 

2) Simply open ones' eyes & figure it out . Romans 1:18-32 .

3) This was an idea invented by the false con$ervatives .
The fact is , they do NOT pay they're fair share proportionently . It is NEVER the amount that one pays that is proportionate , it is the tax burden % total , that must be equal .
If I have to pay 22% of my wages , then so do they , in order to be paying equal from all .
The 2% ONLY spends the 98 % 's money ,... so for them to finally pay at an equal rate towards the cost of running a country ,... then finally , everyone is particapating .

They might not invade countries  as a big business venture , if the money spent to do so , actually came out of they're pocket , instead of it being "a no risk venture" , because it is ONLY our (the 98 % ) money spent .
This is why Bush Jr. put the specific supreme court judges in , that he did , so they would turn away the requests from companies NOT owned by Chaney / Rumesfeld & Bush , getting an answer to why they could NOT bid on any of the Iraq rebuilding work .

4) Psalms 144 .
In Scripture , G_D approving war , was to preserve His people "morally & ethically" (try and prevent or greatly reduce the miximg with pagen groups) - after all , they were "chosen" to teach the world about G_D .
And the other reason , was to protect the Christ line , so that He could arrive .

Subject: [socratescafe-114] Meeting This Sunday - Feb 26th

Dear Members

 

Our meeting will begin at 2:30 PM

2:30 PM  We will begin the first part of our meeting by viewing a 30 min talk by Dr. Lawrence M. Principle who is the professor of the History of Science and Technology and Professor of Chemistry at Johns Hopkins University. 

His lecture will be on "The Warfare Thesis as an interpretation of the relationship between Science and Religion."  The idea of the "Warfare Thesis" is that throughout history religion and science have opposed and inimical.  The belief is that religion has stymied the advance of science.  This idea will be examined to see if it is historically true.

At 3:00 we will have a 30 minute discussion and dialogue on this lecture's topic. 

We will begin our regular meeting at 3:30 with a choosing of a question.  The questions to be voted on this month will be. 

 

1.  Is human activity a significant contribution to global warming and should anything be done to limit human activity to reduce global warming?  If so what?

 

2.  The analytic–synthetic distinction (also called the analytic–synthetic dichotomy) is a conceptual distinction, used primarily in philosophy to distinguish propositions into two types: analytic propositions and synthetic propositions. Analytic propositions are true by virtue of their meaning, while synthetic propositions are true by how their meaning relates to the world.

Question.

If the statement "I believe in God" is a synthetic proposition based on the experience of the one making it.  Are their any analytic reasons to believe in God that are not based on experience and are purely true by logic and reason alone. 

 

3.  Is it immoral for the government to redistribute money from the rich to the poor or is it immoral for the government to not redistribute money from the rich to the poor. 

 

4.  What makes a war just?

 

5.  What makes an excellent marriage?

 

6.  What makes human beings happy?

 

7.  How do philosophy and theology differ?  What should be the difference between philosophy and theology?  Are philosophy and theology friends or foes? 

 

We will use this list of questions to choose from at 3:30 PM.  If you have another question then bring it and we could add it to this list. Come with your question written down.

 

See you on Sunday

 

For Truth

 

Dr. Norm
