There was a lengthy discussion of this at Conservapedia Talk:What is going on at CP?/Archive66#CP Main Page: Adam Smith bested., wherein we detailed all the non-lulzy ways that Andy's theory is wrong. --Toiretni 10:34, 8 August 2008 (EDT)


I need help.... If the "Invisible Hand of Marriage" was in fact the "Visible Hand of Marriage" would it wear a silver wedding band or gold? Peace x

actually, the original quote said, "Same-sex marriage is a recipe for unproductive activity, anxiety, depression and addition..."

Counter-argument[edit]

Just think what Jesus would have done if he had been married. 82.44.143.26 (talk) 16:16, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Who says Jesus wasn't married? Omar (gibber) 16:42, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
According to them lot he wasn't. There is no information either way (absence of proof is not proof of absence): 'the gospel writers and others' (whether or not included in The Bible) were more interested in what he said than in his private life... or the information might not have survived. (To take a present-day equivalent: with all the access to information readily available now, how many children do/did Gerald Ford, John Major, Harold Wilson or Joe Biden have?) Given Jesus was supposedly in his 30s when he died, would 'the Jesus Party' take instruction from (a) a young person at most 15-20 being his son or (b) the disciples who were familiar with his ideas. And would Mary Magdalen (a) hike off to France where she had no residence rights and did not speak the local lingo or (b) disappear into the her own locality as a market person. (there must have been any number of Mariams whose partner Joshua had 'gone off somewhere' to confuse the authorities). 82.44.143.26 (talk) 17:02, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
