Good job on the rescue.  Wish I could have a dog, but Dallas apartment living doesn't allow it.

Good grief.  I thought I had missed a thread or something. 

Get rid of her and get a DVR.  They make much better roommates.  A lot cheaper, too.

Your arguments sound the same to me as any other historical group of people determined to ferret out heretics.  As Good as the Book is, it was still written by men and reflects the time and society in which it was written.  Men decided which books were included and which were Apocryphal

I am not saying that all interpretations are equal or valid.  I am saying that you are missing the difference between what you consider a Christian to be and what the basic definition is.  Obviously a member of one denomination has issues with the beliefs of another in varying degrees.  And since First World people are (mostly) free today to choose their denomination, the one that has the widest appeal tends to be the one that wins out, rather than any inherent strength in the arguments. 

Your argument of the perversion of the kernel of truth sounds very similar to the argument of militant Islam against the Jews.  They believe that the Jews are still the People of God, but have perverted the Word for their own purposes and shall surely suffer (or be made to suffer) for it.

I would say that the other thread would also help in a legal sense, since it's communication that is datestamped from well before you were having these issues with the female.
7850  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Roman Catholic Church reintroducing indulgences? on: February 12, 2009, 09:44:55 PM
In the strictest definition, yes.  Your examples are definitive of outlying denominations, sects, and cults.  Being a Christian revolves around one belief, as I stated earlier.  The rest are denominational differences.  

And to my mind, assuming that any one person's way is the only way is tantamount (to me) a statement that that person knows the mind of God, which it the height of egocentricity.  Everyone can say that they are right because that's what they were taught.

7852  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Roman Catholic Church reintroducing indulgences? on: February 12, 2009, 05:49:56 PM
Christianity is a broad category: Belief in Christ as the Messiah.  Your points are more geared to the denomination level, of which there are four major categories:  Catholicism, Protestantism, Orthodoxy, and Nontrinitarian (Jehovah's Witnesses, Latter Day Saint movement, Unitarianism, Christadelphians, Oneness Pentecostalism).

My understanding is that is where the priests and saints all come in.  You basically ask them to intercede for you and pull God aside and plead your case for you.  This is a key element to the base of the Protestant Reformation and the 95 Theses:

26: The pope does well when he grants remission to souls [in purgatory], not by the power of the keys (which he does not possess), but by way of intercession.

The command's Joint Space Operations Center was tracking 500 to 600 new bits of debris, some as small as 10 centimeters (3.9 inches) across, in addition to the 18,000 or so other man-made objects it has catalogued in space, Kodlick said.

The collision occurred at roughly 780 kilometers (485 miles), an altitude used by satellites that monitor weather and carry telephone communications among other things, he said.

"It's a very important orbit for a lot of satellites," he said.

The International Space Station flies at a lower altitude and is the command's No. 1 priority in attempting to prevent collisions, Kodlick said.

and it was a T-bone collision.

A privately owned U.S. communications satellite collided with a defunct Russian satellite in the first such collision in space, a U.S. military spokesman said on Wednesday.

The collision involved a spacecraft of privately owned Iridium Satellite LLC and a "non-operational" Russian communications satellite, said Air Force Lt. Col. Les Kodlick of the U.S. Strategic Command.

I bet that made one heck of a flare...

$1100 went to last year's dental work (Capital One loan paid in full), $250 went to December's medical bill that the insurance decided to apply my deductible to, I bought Life on DVD as well as last year's Peanuts box set, $50 worth of Pete Rock special edition games, and likely the rest will sit there until I need to pay off this year's dental work.

See if the company PTB would set up a memorial award/scholarship in her name.  Make it something that she has a passion for to really reflect her personality and work.  Better to do it now when she can help make the input than after she's gone.
