Michigan Citizen: In a blow to schoolchildren statewide, the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled on Nov. 7 the State of Michigan has no legal obligation to provide a quality public education to students in the struggling Highland Park School District. The appellate court said the state has no constitutional requirement to ensure schoolchildren actually learn fundamental skills such as reading read more

Many days, it seems that all the advances our country has made are being dismantled one court decision at a time. A recent decision in Michigan, which has largely flown under the radar, should it hold up on a national level, could mean that poor children will have no access to education.

On November 7, the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that one poverty-stricken school district didn't have to provide a quality education to children.

spite the deaths of least 12 children from "faith healing" Christian families in their state, lawmakers and public officials in Idaho have refused to challenge a state law providing a religious exemption from manslaughter and murder charges, Vocativ reported.

The childrens' families belonged to a Pentecostal group known as the Followers of Christ, which punishes members who seek medical care by shunning them from their church. According to state law, parents can substitute prayer as a form of treatment. The religious exemption covers manslaughter, capital murder and negligent homicide charges, but cannot be cited if a parent uses any other form of treatment on top of praying for the child.

Some pedestrians got quite a surprise when they were strolling in the park the other day. A man in a ninja costume stood alone with a sign at his feet and a foam sword a couple of yards away. The sign read "Fight Me."

If a courageous passerby decided to pick up the sword and take the strange man up on his offer they were sure to get more than they bargained for.

Thinking about the whole election, each race, each ballot initiative, and what the realities are of governing might help you get through the next 24 hours. So, let me help you put some things into perspective, and give you more productive things you should worry about.

From your link at wiki.

Belief that the Oral Torah was transmitted orally from God to Moses on Mount Sinai during the Exodus from Egypt is a fundamental tenet of faith of Orthodox Judaism, and was recognized as one of the Thirteen Principles of Faith by Maimonides.

Moses is believed to have lived 1500 bc. Here is a nice wiki link to Moses stating his birth date was around 1500bc.

"Rabbinical Judaism calculated a lifespan of Moses corresponding to 1391–1271 BCE;[8] Jerome gives 1592 BCE,[9] and Ussher 1571 BCE as his birth year[10]"


Enuma Elish was written down about 2000 years ago and scholars think the oral tradition was a long time before that. Here is a nice link that shows that Enuma Elish was written before Moses was even born and was an oral tradition long before that.

"Often compared to the biblical creation account in Genesis, the earliest tablets date from around 2000 b.c., although scholars feel that it was an ancient oral tradition before then."


That's the facts Jack. Enuma Elish was WRITTEN hundreds of years before the writer of the first 5 books of the OT was even born. I know you aren't man enough to admit your ignorance even in the face of overwhelming ev idence. Facts are---you are mistaken. Enuma Elish written long before the bible.

At least it isn't smokestacks on the moon or the infamous car antenna stuff from the past (though the latter was mentioned above).

You don't believe in the smokestack on the moon? NASA went to great lengths to get the video. Look again and tell me you don't see something that resembles a smokestack.


I believe I humiliated you before on the smokestack on the moon. Glad to do it again.

How about you tell me about what you think my point was about the car antenna and then tell me the flaw in the logic. I think you need a little more humiliation. Glad to help.
