I've long thought that automobile license plates should have nothing on them other than something to identify the car - no political statements of any sort, no alumni plates, no fireman or veteran plates, no club or other organization plates, no Confederate flags, nothing - just letters and numbers identifying the car.Everything else is what bumper stickers are for. On my car is a sticker with the words "Jezu ufam tobie!" - Polish for "Jesus I trust in you!". (I chose Polish, because I wanted to make the casual observer think. If they took the trouble to actually look it up, perhaps by googling it, they'd come across much useful information, such as THIS as a byproduct. If it were in English, someone would likely dismiss it without a second thought.)That said, the judge is clearly an idiot.
No, she is not an idiot -- she is not a person too stupid to understand the enormity of her actions -- she is a fool: she is person who glories in her enormity.
Ilion,Nothing to do with this conversation heading, but I think you'd find THIS interesting.Sounds kinda like you.
this (to which SRV linked) is more interesting."Sounds kinda like you."Hardly. His reasoning could hardly be more opposite mine.He is presenting two lines of argument for the thesis that no so-called atheist *really* believes that God is not:1) that all men are created by God with a "sense/awareness of the divine" -- while this is true, in the context of trying to argue with an 'atheist' that he really isn't one, after all, such a line of reasoning becomes question-begging. Even in the context in which he seems to be presenting it -- to help other Christians understand that, far all their bluster, 'atheists' are *just* bluster -- it's a really weak argument;2) that "the heavens declare the glory of the Lord", that *everything* we see, no matter where we look, is evidence of the Creator -- again: this is true; and, again, in the context of trying to argue with an 'atheist' that he really isn't one, after all, such a line of reasoning becomes question-begging.
