Beginner

When I was a little boy, say five years old, I would be what most would consider a highly philosophically-minded child.

For example, the judgment "lying is wrong" is necessarily true and there is no circumstance when lying is right."My arguments are Kantian, so my opponent...

Life is NOT Cheap.. It is Dearer to God than anything except Creation itSelf?!.. The right to Life should be ABSOLUTE!.. This does Not, neceSsarily apply to Unborn Life, but Does apply to "Established" Souls?!.. In such a Case where a Soul has Sufficient "Value" then it has sufficient, "Claim" to Living Existence, RepreSentative of that Value AND More!.. Life must be allowed to have its doman of "Worth" at the Position it Requires?!.. AND Continuity to the limits of its "Extent"! This, Must rema...

HelloKitty
steviemarie

Many of there therioes we see today...are indeed found in the bible...The Bible states that God created life according to kinds(Genesis 1:24) how God refers to "kinds" agrees with the scientific observations.."THERE ARE HORIZONTAL GENETIC BOUNDARIES BEYOND WHICH LIFE CANNOT VARY"..dogs produce dogs...roses produce roses and so on...WE DON'T SEE ONE "KIND" EVOLVING INTO ANOTHER "KIND" AS EVOLUTION SUPPOSES why are we no longer evolving or anything in that matter. SCIENTIST THEMSELVES ARE PROVI...
