Let`s cut off your dick, let`s see how much more stupid comments you`ll make..
I read that as "Aretha infections". And that made me think of Aretha Franklin... :/
The true decline in circumcisions in the US was started when Insurance Companies in several states decided to stop covering the procedure on the "it`s not necessary" decision.
Basic hygiene is much better here, but some would argue that the sheer predominance of circumcision in America has also helped reduce the spread of STDs in the first place, especially things like Chlamydia, and certain ulcers and Cancers.
Being someone who has had it done, I can say I don`t remember if it hurt or not, and it rocks :)
The complications that could come from being circumcised happen infrequently indeed(0.2 - 2% in the US), and in fact circumcision is sometimes the best option for an uncircumcised adult male who is suffering certain medical problems.
Actually there are no real hygienic reasons to do it, ask any doctor. The tradition of removing the foreskin of an infant (or an adult in rare cases) is a dying one, as it has no real scientific basis. I will admit that in Africa, studies have shown that circumcision greatly reduces the risk of passing on an STD. This is mostly due to the lack of sexual protection used and extreme lack of basic hygiene.
Yes. I speak from experiance.I dont regret having the surgery because I needed it though the recovery was rather nasty (no I`m not Jewish)! I certainly do not support the Jewish tradition of circumcising infants. Let them make up their own mind when they are adults!
Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin of the penis. The ceremony is called a briss. It is done during infancy, because if you ever get circumsized as an adult when you can remember the pain, you will regret it. The practice is done more commonly these days for hygienic reasons.
He stood up and said those things at his own Bar Mitzvah. The same equivlent would be saying "I`m agnostic" at say..your`re own christening (though traditionally most people couldnt due to the age issue). All in all it`s a big thing when taken in it`s context!
If you`re not sure, you`re not Gnostic.Agnosticism simply means "I don`t know if God exists or not."
An Agnostic Theist would say, "I`m not entirely sure if God exists or not, but I believe he does."
An Agnostic Atheist would say, "I could be wrong, but I don`t believe God exists."
A Gnostic Theist would say, "God exists and I know, without a doubt, that this is true."
A Gnostic Atheist would say, "There`s no way God exists, at all."
You don`t have to believe the whole bible in order to believe in God, and I think that`s what this kid is wrestling with.
No more so than if you don`t drive a car you must be a panda.
You can doubt and still be theist, because belief in itself does not require 100% certainty. (No matter who crammed that bullpoo down your throat).
Many people believe that they won`t win the lottery, that does not necessarily mean they don`t buy tickets. That is because their belief is not 100%. It`s still belief. The word is not being misused.
His quote was specifically that he didn`t know if he believed in God. (It is not possible to tell if he is atheist/theist from the video).
He implied he didn`t know the nature of God. That is agnostic. It`s therefore an agnostic speech.
