Easter: the hand-me-down myth The truth is that those so-called wise and prudent theologians know absolutely nothing about the so-called resurrection simply because it never happened. Easter, or the celebration of the resurrection, is merely a tradition, a tradition that you have been taught from childhood, and coming into maturity you have accepted it because that is what you were taught. That is what you read bout. That is what your parents made you observed every Easter Sunday. Thus, you...

God is all... noun, verb, and adjective. The description I believe works best is that of a man walking on a path. God is the man, the path, and the action of walking. See above. The word "who" implies a singularity. I don't believe this applies to God. The Tao Te Ching describes the Tao (translation: Path) as empty and full. Like a drinking glass... the solidness is full, but the emptiness between the solid portions allow it to be usable. Same with a wheel... the spokes and rim are solid,...

Hey HB, don't forget about the Hindu God Krishna (as in Christ or Kristian/Christian), which also was combined with the ancient Egyptian word Karest, which means anointed, he was also a son of God who was crucified for the people. Have you ever seen a picture of Krishna? Look it up on the web. Pretty interesting that the picture that the Hindu created of Krishna, looks exactly like the picture that Micheal Angelo (Michael God's Angel, in Greek the word Angelos means angel) drew of Jesus.

So far though, they can only positively identify one of them, since his DNA matched the DNA evidence found underneath the victim's false nails. And unless she was wearing those cheap press-on nails, anyone who has ever gotten a french manicure with false tips knows just how incredibly hard it is to get those things off without a professional manicurist! So the victim must have really struggled with these guys in order for her nails to come completly off. I am surprised there was no blood and...

Okay: Alpha Males... As in wolves; as in animals. Human beings are lot more adaptable, more versatile and cooperative than this "Alpha Myth".

And Fox news, along with all the other popular news programs, including MSNBC and CNN are clearly biased towards the defense.

And whenever they do get around to discussing Niflong and the victim's case, it's always something negative.

OK how many black people watch FOX newschannel? The only reason I ever watched it was because of my military affiliation and only at work. I don't watch it now only when I'm flipping through the channels. As far as not airing the debate on Black TV stations, that was kind of dumb because what channels do you think that the majority of voting aged young black people are watching. Not Fox or even MSNBC. That was a bad move on the part of the CBC. It makes you wonder what's going on in their heads.

Aside from being the pigment on the external surface of the body and being human's only true protection from the natural rays of the sun. T.
