Without any evidence otherwise my interpretations stand. I know you're too lazy to bother so I guess the discussion is over. Bye.
If you had a grasp of evidence you would not have the views you do.
I'm not seeing any page numbers, authors, numbers, or quotes. Lazy. Bye.

Re: Racial basis of spiritual traditions

You'd have to say what you mean by race before I could agree, do you mean physical appearace? If so you appear to be mixing race and nationality in your example.

Re: Race versus culture

I'm still waiting for you to explain why the poor white boys are doing worst of all in our education system? Maybe because they feel cucked and depressed by their oppressive government? Who knows? Even einstein got D's. Also, whites make up 16% of the world's population, blacks make up 15%. If ther...

Re: Sacrificial Systems Rooted in Crucifixion as Means to Wisdom and Understanding

Sacrifice is the common denominator found within all religions as the bond between man and God that enables any form of wisdom or understanding to be obtained. ACIM explicitly rejects that position and insists instead that the separation never happened and therefore there was no sacrifice to repay ...

Re: Racial basis of spiritual traditions

Same reason humans, are called humans. Yeah, they're all one race. This is known as Lewontin’s Fallacy or Lewontin’s Paradox.

Re: Can My Children be Friends with White People?

I`d argue very strongly in terms of there being an actual net gain. Obviously there is much to be gained for coloreds from having White friends: status, safety, prosperity, intelligence, culture and so on. The bigger question is why would a White person what a colored person as their friend? Seems ...
