  1. Joshua, u missed everything. Did you view the video in stop motion, the one of msnbc… ? Well, you may review this page to get some more insight on why #7 was demolitioned. But what is more important, is that you understand what happened to the true Catholic Church. And why, these men, are so full of it. Lies lies and more lies. Here is a link to my timeline of the best video that has been shown on the concept of stop motion to see what was really there in the picture, that no one could see with the naked eye. Review truecarpentry posts. http://truecarpentry.proboards.com/board/9/wtc-7 Note; no debri upon entry of the plane into the building. Either one of them. So, it could not of been a plane… A GW Bush frame of laser weapon with inbedded halograms, and yes, they can do this; to you if they want to, and no one can stop them. Hit you with a beam, and no one will ever see it coming. Enter here this link. https://www.facebook.com/seaviews7, or view this link, http://thecameraplanetarchive.magnify.net/video/Over-There-NYT copy the shit out of it, for you will never ever see anything like this ever again, unless, you get onboard the star ship enterprise.. Yes, they have one of those too… So Joshua, did you not get the message from trueCatholic, about witchcraft. I suggest you read the catholic enclyclopedia in regards to just what is a pagan….

  2. Josh, just read your “Refuting Anti-Gay Rights Arguments” and appreciate it.

    To take it to another level, I am arguing with a woman who claims that homosexuality is a “biological disorder” because the sexual orientation is not “in alignment” with the reproductive system.

    If you have a moment, I’d appreciate knowing how you’d respond to this.

    Thanks.

    • Thanks for reading.

      It is actually a biological puzzle as to why homosexuality has appeared in so many populations and persisted for so long despite not leading to procreation. Some research indicates that it may be beneficial, but this is by no means conclusive: http://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/scientists-discover-evolutionary-advantage-homosexual-sex

      I would answer that she is misusing the term “biological disorder” and point out that she cannot point out a concrete harm caused by using the reproductive system in a way that isn’t “in alignment” with its intent. She needs to learn that simply by labeling a natural variant a disorder (e.g. you could say the same thing about left-handed people) is just a semantic trick that doesn’t actually make an argument. This kind of person thinks they know a great deal more about biology than they think they do, and has memorized a couple of buzz words to make themselves appear more knowledgeable than they are.
