  2. I don't believe you

    Walkers mouthpiece. Yes, he is stating that marriage, by its nature, confers consent, at any and all times. So that anytime a husband wants, he can violate his wife, because it is his right to do so. Once again, demonstrating that women are nothing more than the property of men
  3. I don't believe you

    Slavery is illegal. Illegal things still occur because of economic realities, but the y are not approved institutions If slavery was the powerful economic driver world wide that it once was, then it would still be legal.
  4. I don't believe you

    I don't imagine any Western culture is much different.
  5. I don't believe you

    Still very low, at 18,000, but that graph I displayed that showed just a few hundred a year, in Australia, it would not surprise if that had gone lower since. The USA has more conservative and traditional pockets than Australia, which is more mono-cultural, I would say.
  6. I don't believe you

    You are arguing my points for me Only when slavery became an economic problem rather than an economic strength was it questioned Many slaves lived better lives than freemen Maybe your figures didnt copy too well but they don't show a huge preponderance of slaves in mining. Indeed mining would only have been a small percentage Agriculture would have been higher but was not necessarily a brutall lfe About 50% of roman slvaes lived in the country and many were agricultural workers. However, often every worker on a villa or estate was a slave, from the overseer through cooks, book keepers, and those who cared for animals, to field workers. Their living conditions differed considerably Again my point is valid Slavery was not always terrible or evil and often slaves were better off than equivalent freemen (hence the unrest and riots )
  7. I don't believe you

    So, Australia is the goalpost of the world? The sad fact is that most adoptive couples are white, and they want cute lil white babies to raise as their own. BUT, there are a huge percentage of couples, hetero and homosexual, that are eager to adopt babies who need loving homes. You are looking at the situation through a very narrow filter of your own design, and anything that falls out of your self-imposed range is invalid data.
  8. I don't believe you

    “i repeat there was no such thing as rape within a marriage, either legally or in concept, until the 1960s because marriage was seen to give ongoing consent to sex and this was a known part of the marriage contract.” Please support this with actual proof of the marriage contract and show me where it says this.
  9. I don't believe you

    He said "was", sweetie ! Is he agreeing with rape in marriage ?
  10. I don't believe you

    BULLSHIRT! Do you think, because it is within marriage, a woman doesn't have the right to say "NO"? If so, why not? Is it because she is the property of her husband? By this argument, a wife has the right to purchase a strap-on sexual device and penetrate her husband, with or without his consent. And from the sound of your argument, Mrs Walker should do just that. It might just teach you some humility, if not an appreciation for a woman's right to her own body.
  11. I don't believe you

    The queue would soon shuffle forward, but in reality most people have given up, in Australia, so low is the availabilty.
  12. I don't believe you

    “The number of infant adoptions in the US has increased very slightly from 18,078 in 2007 to 18,329 in 2014, the last year data is available. Domestic infant adoption comprises only .5% of all live births in the US and only 1.1% of births to single parents” (https://creatingafamily.org/adoption-category/adoption-blog/adoption-cost-length-time/j.
  13. I don't believe you

    That doesn't answer the question. You stated that only "new born adoptions" were relevant. A woman gets pregnant, does not want the baby but decides to carry it to term and give it up for adoption. If no one steps up to adopt the child within 24 hours of its birth, you discount that adoption? According to what you are saying, a woman has to: 1 - get preggers 2- decide to carry to term and give up her child for adoption 3- seek out adoptive parents that will adopt her child. 4- suffer through all the difficulties of pregnancy and childbirth to deliver a child to the adoptive parents.. What happens if the adoptive parents back out? What happens if there are complications, either during pregnancy, childbirth, or the formation of the fetus? What happens if the woman's body isn't strong enough, and she dies? Let me ask a hypothetical, to all the males who are soooooo opposed to abortion. If it were possible, medically, for YOU to carry a feotus to term, and be delivered by C-section, would you volunteer your body? If it were YOUR offspring, and the woman didn't want it, would you? What if it were a random stranger? Since this medical miracle is impossible at the present time, I suspect that many, if not all of the pro-life males would eagerly say "yes", since they don't have to make good on their claim. BUT, how many of you men would volunteer to wear a pregnancy vest for 9 months? Since that is very do-able. Or, face electro-stim simulation of labor pains, for say.... 12 hours?
  14. I don't believe you

    ALL such things are names or constructs of human minds The y are and become how we perceive or see them to be i repeat there was no such thing as rape within a marriage, either legally or in concept, until the 1960s because marriage was seen to give ongoing consent to sex and this was a known part of the marriage contract. Rape is non consensual sex, and in modern terms the consent must be both informed, and freely given Marriage conferred informed, ongoing, consent as part of the deal. You don't need to worry about my attitudes to women. I've been partially reconstructed, and now only give them the same respect and place of honour as I do men.
  15. " Probably not much. I bet they wouldn’t confront other armed people. " Yeah not now especially after one of their head honchos was handled by the FBI. Great thread by the way, looking forward to more. UUUUUUUUUUUPDATE: worded wrong, I mean looking forward to more information in this venue. hahaha sheeze LATERZZZZZZ
  16. Why Is There So Much Mass Violence?

    Must start in the family then: Matthew 10:21 Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rise against their parents and have them put to death. Matthew 10:35 For I have come to turn 'A man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
  17. I don't believe you

    My point is that IF a society loved and cared for all it's children, then there would be even less need for abortions. While children are treated like this, it creates some excuse/justification for people to approve of abortion.
  18. Doing God's will.

    Think he is trying to understand how you discern who or what is believable. The main difference between the options given and jesus, is that at least we know the others are historically real people. Claims are just that, what makes jesus any different? If you just want to believe for no apparent reason, that's up to you.
  19. Probably not much. I bet they wouldn’t confront other armed people.
  20. Doing God's will.

    So why not believe their claims? To me, they are as valid as yours. If you decide to believe something, how does that guarantee that your belief is true? A flat-earther chooses to believe in their "truth", despite the overwhelming evidence that they are incorrect. What does that say about beliefs, or faith? Someone once told me that you can't choose what you believe, you believe it because it is true. To you. I'm not sure that I totally agree with that statement.
  21. Well I'm just glad it didn't escalate ! Tx on the link MUCH APPRECIATED!, not to derail/deflect, I'm going over Vikings in Mexico at the moment, yes another thread. YIKES ! THANKS FOR ARTICLE LINK: don't need these bozos down there , so called leader of another patriot group hmmm..." dangerous felon who should not have weapons around children and families, ... racist and armed vigilantes " KUDOS TO FBI !
  22. I don't believe you

    Because if you don't want the baby, you don't keep it after the earliest opportunity to be rid of it. With abortion, that opportunity is brought forward.
  23. Why do psychics ask so many questions?

    The thing I find so funny is that I am often told that as a skeptic I can't think outside of the box. I find that skeptics are often better at coming up with alternatives than those telling others that they need to think outside of the box.
  24. Why do psychics ask so many questions?

    Good question. 1. I don't believe the dead communicate or exist. 2. I don't believe mediums communicate with anyone, just the wallets of their targets. I was just thinking about another possibility as to the reason for the odd questions posed by mediums other than the "it's real" vs the "cold reading" camps.
  25. Imagine if the Mexican military met these guys? https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/20/us/militia-arrest-border-new-mexico.html
  26. Doing God's will.

    I think that's what's at the root of our apparent failure to communicate. But not really. I understand what you're looking for as evidence but I see the evidence as looking for me. No. No. Why you ask? Because that's my decision. Just like it's my decision to believe what I believe.
