    But my latest post is not confrontational in the least. In fact, I think it's rather generous considering your accusations above.

    Come to think of it, I meant to ask you to explain that last line in your confrontational post. What is the "other end of the see-saw" from religion?

All I'm asking is what that is. Might you be referring to atheism?

    I understand you like to be ambiguous in your posting on this subject so you don't have to commit yourself. That's so you leave enough room for equivocation.
    Well, gee. I actually thought that was rather obvious.
    I was not "equivocating" as much as you were dancing around the obvious.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    Is that right?(1) It's not an attempt to define the world and the universe?(2)

    Meaning what exactly? (3)That faith, or belief in something or someone with no basis in reality is worth fighting to hold on to? That's exactly what all you religious people do to varying degrees. My point is that it's not, especially now that we know so much more that contradicts the foundation of biblical faith.
    What?(4)

    "The whole story"? (5) Really? Come now!
    You said yourself that it's subjective. But wait, your subjective interpretation of biblical meaning and application is, what, more, what, objective? That's cute! And predictable.

    Please forgive us all, Lord, for we know not what we do!
    So, #4 seems to be the "simple question."
    And, as I said, the others seem to be rhetorical.

    I suppose though, if we want to pursue this we should probably peel it off to another thread before somebody complains about us hijacking the thread.

    The lengths you go to in order to avoid committing is astounding.

    What is it that you are expecting me to commit to, bud?

    You and Frodo are two ends of the same pole, in my view. Extreme literalism over the same bit of philosophy. There seems no middle ground, whatsoever.
    Me, i like to take a line of thought and explore the concept, get on the bus and see where it will go. I don't mind at all wandering down dead ends, or going out on a limb or two.

    By the way, there were actually six questions in that post. I missed one. Sorry.
    Do you wish for me to take them and give you an in depth answer to all of them?
    I can do that, but it might take a little time. I was a work and just dropping in every now and again for a quick read and reply.

    If a nation unilaterally abrogates a trade treaty why should the other parties trust them to keep to any new one? The eu doesn't allow american meat and poultry to be imported because the husbandry practices of american farmers. GM crops are not allowed because the people started refusing to buy it the hormones used in american beef cattle are dangerous and banned in the eu it's not anti amrican there are serious health concerns.

    Nobody forced american companies to move production abroad maybe you should look to the real culprits for the demise of american industry. You don't have a capitalist economy stop kidding yourself. Bet the chinese are laughing themselves silly over this.

    U.S. Posts Biggest Budget Deficit Since 2012

    The U.S. recorded a $215 billion budget deficit in February -- its biggest in six years -- as revenue declined.
    Fiscal income dropped to $156 billion, down 9 percent from a year earlier, while spending rose 2 percent to $371 billion, the Treasury Department said on Monday. The deficit for the fiscal year that began in October widened to $391 billion, compared with a $351 billion shortfall the same period a year earlier, according to the Treasury report.

    The data underscore concerns by some economists that Republican tax cuts enacted this year could increase the U.S. government debt load, which has surpassed $20 trillion. The tax changes are expected to reduce federal revenue by more than $1 trillion over the next decade, while a $300 billion spending deal reached by Congress in February could push the deficit higher.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.
