Sorry, I was obviously not clear. There are dates within the document. The stele is dated. This is nothing to do with radiocarbon dating (and, incidentally, 1772 BC is less than 5000 years anyway) its to do with making sure we understand the calender, which we're pretty certain we do.
Oh I see, I haven't had time to study the stone in full, specificity from lack of being able to look at it, read it and understand it. If this is true, then it shows again what a strong effect one culture and philosophy can have on another.
Your assumption is that I am white, live in an area of strong French descent, have French ancestry, and not a recent immigrant to Canada.
Two of these things are incorrect.
First, I never assumed that you are white. A black man can be a frenchman as much as a white man can.
Second, the majority of Canada is French, so I would have to have bad luck to speak to someone who isn't in a place influenced by the french culture, I see the same thing in Louisiana.
Third, again, a lot of Canadians can trace their ancestry back to France or other European countries with a strong religious background so I would just have to have bad luck.
And fourth, knowing how difficult it is to immigrate into Canada, I again shot for the majority. I have personally seen what it was like for my father to attempt to immigrate to Canada even when he is married to a Canadian and be turned down.
Firstly I am British, so I am talking about Soccer, which is a predominantly female game in the rest of the world. England's womens soccer team are twice world champions. England's male soccer team are flops. Who gets paid more? Or actually who gets paid at all?
I already went over the pay discrepancies. Legally men and women are meant to be paid the same now (although they never were). Many companies have gotten around these new rules with performance related pay or personal wages that you must keep secret from the rest of the employees. Companies advise that the pay has taken into consideration performance, but plenty of surveys have shown women doing the same jobs to the same level of competence are getting paid less, either because they agreed to it in negotiation (and it was offered low) or the males have gotten a payrise.
Your video simply says women get paid less because they work less hours. The fact is I work the same hours as other people in my organisation, do just a good a job and get paid less.
Ah, my apologies, I couldn't see where you were located. If there is indeed such a large pay gap between male and female players when the females perform much better and earn more than their male counterparts, you do indeed have a problem that needs to be resolved.
Are you sure you looked at all the factors that has allowed your male co-worker to earn more than you? Has he worked there longer than you? Does he has a higher education with a higher GPA? Has he indeed performed better than you have? has he taken initiative and asked for a raise? These are factors that must be considered first before we check to see if there is really sexual discrimination in play here.
While I'll concede that you didn't state that this model of "traditional" marriage is the best, you certainly did present it in your initial post as the answer to social ills you felt feminism had not addressed. If it's not the best, what in your opinion is a better arrangement?
That's a difficult question. And as I think on it.. I don't think there is a clear and honest answer. The Christian Philosophy did it's best to make one set of rules, but as I view the situation now I don't think there can be one.
We as a world-wide culture have grown beyond that. With our technology there is fewer and fewer reasons for what was laid out to be true. To be honest, the real answer to your question would very on the individuals. One family might be ok with the Philosophy presented here, another might need it to be reversed as you presented. Another might operate their family by delegating of duties. I could go on with enough time. However, I do believe I have answered your question.d
On a final note, I want to make clear that when I say we have 'grown beyond that', I don't mean we should wash it to the wayside. We can learn so much by looking into our past so we can't brush it all away.
Um - no, not necessarily. Given proper application of technology, muscle mass is not as much of a requirement as it was in pre-industrial times. I look like I could be blown over in a stiff wind, but given a block and tackle in the correct ratio (or better yet, a powered hoist), I can lift an engine block out of a Chevy. Give me an electromagnetic crane, and I can lift the whole damn car.
I see your point. Perhaps we should reevaluate the terms 'Husband' and 'Wife' in another thread.
