  7. I don't believe you

    When you think of the innumerable couples who'd love to bring a child into the world, and are not able to, and then the rate of abortions of convenience, it is a truly woeful story. Adoption is almost non-existent within Western societies.

    How beautiful!!
  12. I don't believe you

    Maybe(indeed certainly) but it is also a more personal selfishness. Having a child is an intensely personal and sometimes problematic event which affects many women. it is harder to be selfless and morally strong, when its your own life being affected. Easier to argue that is not really a human being or that it is a part of your body and thus yours to do with as you see fit On the other hand, for many reasons ( medical economic or psychological) some women truly need abortions and should not be denied them. it is up to society in the long term to better structure itself, so that other options are available and abortions are rarely required. For example why should a woman have a lifetime responsibility to care for a child she never wanted to have? But this should not mean the child should not be born, rather that it should be loved and cared for by a person, or people, who do want it ie that we abandon the idea that natural parentage gives an inalienable right to the life of another human being, and realise that a child is an individual element of the human race, and the responsibility of all of us, not just its parents
  13. Meghan, Harry, and the next royal baby due

    @stevewinn You quoted me before I edited my post. I'm not puzzled by it.
  14. Meghan, Harry, and the next royal baby due

    its pretty easy to understand, - be puzzled no more, - Meghan's mum Doria is black, both Doria's parents are black. that lineage is of black race. unless for some reason were to ignore that. Its not about 50/50 = black. its about acknowledging the lineage of Meghans family. Meghan & Harrys baby's grandmother is black race. this makes the Royal Baby the first to have black heritage in his/hers lineage.
  15. Of course! Thanks I forgot about that. I see goochelen is said to be derived from joke, jokken (used in OLB as JOK) – this is possible. (I am surprised huichelen is not also claimed to come from Latin jocus.) But for goochelen to come from GOLA is not entirely unlikely, as the middle part (goochel-) could have developed in the various languages. The trickerish nature is also one that the Fryas assoiciated with the Gaullians (Gools), just as they did the Finns with fine-ness, themselves with free-dom etc. GOLA: to deceive, trick; also Gallia (Old-Frisian) gøjle – Danish gjøgle – Norse gyckla – Swedish gaukeln – German goochelen – Dutch goël – Afrikaans Compare KUL (07 Dec. 2013) which rings koeël in Afrikaans with the others: Afrikaans words tend to soften in the middle where a ‘ch’ or ‘g’ sound usually is in Dutch and German. Most of these can probably be described as the degeneration of the language, but some seem to coincide with the way they were pronounced in the OLB writing, which would make them relics. For example: SÉJEN: seën in Afrikaans, segen in Dutch & German LÉJEN: leuen in Afr., lie in English, leugen & lügen in Dutch & German RÉIN: reën in Afr., rain in English, regen in Dutch & German Also a word that might share a root with KUL is Dutch verb kullen (: to trick or hoodwink)
  16. Doing God's will.

    Sorry. I don't understand what you are trying to say. My point was that, if faith, belief, or religious attendance creates positive outcomes in humans, this can be determined scientifically. In response to your points Everything is knowable, given enough time, technology and background knowledge. If it is not knowable, it does not exist. if it exists, it is potentially knowable. The universe is not infinitely complex, even though it is complex. Of course we can, and one day (if we survive long enough) will, understand it all. Given time, technology and knowledge, humans will eventually be able to build their own universes, engineer their own life forms, etc.

    wish we could do the same like swallows, rejoice the air... err... they eat bugs there
  18. Meghan, Harry, and the next royal baby due

    Both Meghan and Barack are mixed race (50/50) unless you believe that White + Black = Black. The new Royal baby will have 25% black ancestry.
  19. I don't believe you

    People can identify with the dread of being cast into slavery, they can't identify with a child that could have lived, but did not. They can "feel" the horror of slavery, they just don't imagine, what being aborted is like for a foetus. After all, it was not in prospect for them personally, and they really are only interested in what they can identify with personally. I wonder how many walking around today know their very existence was being debated before they were born, and the decision just happened to go their way, I doubt that kind of knowledge becomes known to many.
  20. Industrial Bleach Miracle Cure.

    You can be arrested in Australia for selling fresh,( ie untreated and straight from a cow, ) cow's milk, for human consumption. It is illegal to sell raw milk for human consumption in Australia, so all bottled milk you buy from a shop, or you get from a food business like a cafe, must be pasteurised. Any business that sells or serves raw cow's milk is breaching the law AND putting your health at risk. Interestingly, govt contracted domestic cleaners, such as those who help my wife, are also banned from using chlorine based bleaches like domestos because of the health risk it creates, just using it as a cleaner all day.

  23. Atheism is incompatible with science

    Not just minutes. It would appear that some activity can be restored to brains that have been "dead" for several hours .Scientists have restored cellular function in 32 pig brains that had been dead for hours, opening up a new avenue in treating brain disease—and shaking our definition of brain death to its core. Announced on Wednesday in the journal Nature, researchers at the Yale University School of Medicine devised a system roughly analogous to a dialysis machine, called BrainEx, that restores circulation and oxygen flow to a dead brain. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2019/04/pig-brains-partially-revived-what-it-means-for-medicine-death-ethics/
  24. Meghan, Harry, and the next royal baby due

    c'mon we all know you cant wait. never mind the name. The baby is to be the first black heritage Royal? (its monumental moment in History, on par with Obama becoming President) Its the Queens Birthday today. 93 years. holds the records for the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch, and is also the oldest and longest-reigning current monarch & oldest and longest-serving current head of state in the world. truly exceptional devotion to duty.
