    Why does the Easter bunny hide their {male-female } eggs?

    He doesnt want anyone to know he's been messing around with a chicken-rooster.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ..."A U.K. wildlife group recently rescued a group of baby bunnies that appear to be hybrids - half wild rabbit, half domestic rabbit and 100 percent adorable."

    Half cat half bunny are ...'cabbist'.... and do not exist.

    However, we have totally differrent story when it comes to rat-abbits

    ...."The rabbit genome is nearly identical to that of the rat, and we have found a way to put this science and experience to good use. Using the same zygote microinjection process (to which we still object!) that was used to create the glow-in-the-dark rabbit, these geneticists can isolate the gene that’s responsible for bunnies’ cotton-ball tails and then insert it into fertilized rat egg cells."...

    You didn't answer my question. I'll ask a different one.
    What is the difference between zombie Jesus day and Easter?

    I don't think much of the no true Scotsman argument.

    Self declaration is not proof of identity.

    The Orthodox Church is The Christian Church, and we certainly believe that. If a nominal Christian is outside of The Church, they are like a man in drag claiming to be a woman.

    Not a true woman.

    Dressing up the no true Scotsman argument with a false analogy does not make it anything but the no true Scotsman argument.

    Calling something a fallacy does not make it a fallacy. Incorrectly identifying a fallacy is in itself a fallacy.

    What is supadudz saying? How can you call God your father if you don't have The Church as your mother?


    It is convenient to your own position to accept nominally Christian churches as being Christian. There is One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. That Church is The Orthodox Church.

    I am merely making an observation. You are making The no true Scotsman argument and dressing it up with a false analogy thay commits a category error between a biological distinction and a definitional distinction.

    I am not making an error, you as are making the error. You are making the error of denying The Church and identifying Christianity with Christian heresies. This in itself is an identity fallacy.

    Is the fallacy that I do not agree with the way you identify things? I'm not sure that disagreeing with you is a logical fallacy in and of itself.

    This is a category error. Belief is not externally detectable the way that activities (such as basket ball) can be. You Mopac cannot know the beliefs of others.

    The Hebrews in the desert who were bitten by snakes in the wilderness didn't get healed by laying in their tents and believing that to stare at the brass serpent would heal them. They had to leave the tent and gaze on it to be healed.


    Faith is with the feet, not the head!

    Yet even you should have the good sense to know that believing you are something is not the same as actually being something.

    If you do not belong to the church founded by Jesus and his apostles, how can you claim to represent Christianity? While the west argues over silly theological issues such as faith and works, we Orthodox understand rightly that they are inseparabley united in faithfulness.

    A scientist who is not faithful to the scientific method is only nominally a scientist. A man who considers himself wise but is in fact a fool is not wise.
