These days it's fare dilation instead

Did you know that British Rail patented an interplanetary passenger vehicle?

The craft was to be powered by nuclear fusion, using laser beams to produce pulses of nuclear energy in a generator in the centre of the craft, at a rate of over 1000 Hz to prevent resonance, which could damage the vehicle. The pulses of energy would then have been transferred out of a nozzle into a series of radial electrodes running along the underside of the craft, which would have converted the energy into electricity that would then pass into a ring of powerful electromagnets (the patent describes using superconductors if possible). These magnets would accelerate subatomic particles emitted by the fusion reaction, providing lift and thrust.

According to evolutionists, it's a fact that aliens ruled the planet before the dinosaurs because that can't be disproven
Most afflictions like [mental retardation] are caused by sins committed while still inside the womb.
Gravity: Doesn't exist. If items of mass had any impact of others, then mountains should have people orbiting them.
Now some people might object to killing atheists for there (and obviously it is there and not thier as they are not whos but whats ) organs but think of all the full human persons that would benifit from the organs and the medical research that could be done on these non-persons.
If u have sex before marriage then in Gods eyes u are married to that person if a man rapes a woman in Gods eyes they are married it sucks for the girl but what can we do lol
