Re: If socialism is caring for people, should the U.S. Of A. not get more socialist?

Well. It was the working class who demanded the welfare state to insure the working class. It was a sensible economic system. It worked in Scandinavia because of a homogeneous population. Shared effort, shared goals, shared interests. Now think, how would that work in the U.S. Bernie and his followe...

In the social democratic balance that most Western countries are doing, including supply of a social medical and education systems, what do you see as the weakness? Regards DL Well, the intention behind the working class pulling each others weight when needed was of mutual benefit. Individualism an...

Re: If socialism is caring for people, should the U.S. Of A. not get more socialist?

If socialism is caring for people, should the U.S. Of A. not get more socialist? They should if it was. But socialism is not simply caring for people. Socialism is only one system that can support a society like other systems also can do. There are strengths as well as weaknesses with this system a...

Re: The infidels:

The name "infidel" is so misunderstood that it needs to be defined more accurate in religious terms as it belongs. It has the same root meaning as infidelity - which is being unfaithful to thy spouse - and of fidelity = being faithful. An infidel is a person who is unfaithful to their own religion....

Re: Stephen C. Carlson and the Matthean genealogy.

To be a king, he would have had to have been a biological descendant of David through the father. Jewish Royal succession could not pass through adoption or through the mother. I know this is the common view. But where does people like Cyrus fit into this description? Perhaps a stupid question, but...

Re: Who's afraid of Jesus Terminator?

Giuseppe wrote:Of course I'm supposing the priority of the marcionite Evangelion here.

Therefore not ''insertions'' in a previous hypothetical gMark o gLuke, but only different gospels based on a previous heretical gospel.
So the Marcionitte Evangelion not only pre-dated gLuke, but also gMark?

Re: Who's afraid of Jesus Terminator?

It would be more expected, in my opinion, this sequence: Mark 5:7 ---> Mark 5:6 and not viceversa. It would be more expected, in my opinion, that in a original version of that story, the possessed man said those words of awe at the first sight of Jesus, not following (in a cause-effect link) his ex...
