They believe that receiving blood transfusions are the same as drinking blood, which is stickily forbidden in the old testament law and repeated in the new testament book of Acts where Gentile believers were to "they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication."
The problem comes down to whither or not transfusions are drinking blood or not.
yes, there is. Some would argue that the taking of life (killing someone) is morally wrong. A counter-argument might be if in self-defence, the taking of a life might be morally right, since it preserves another's life. However, this does not contradict the point that the taking of a life is still morally wrong. Indeed, the taking of a life can be both morally right and morally wrong.
yes, morally correct to eat would be salt & vinegar chips.

Say that there are tribes in Africa that believe cannibalism is morally permissible… Read More

Just like the other reply to this question, it is more morally… Read More

Do scientists really think that you are dumb enough to believe that global warming is taking away your polar bears when science and research say otherwise?
If the scientific research says something else and they are asserting it, they probably really think so, because otherwise they wouldn´t say it. But I don´t have any idea about what do you mean by "global warming taking away your polar bears". I believe most people do not own polar bears. I also never heard of research proving that polar bears are not dying, because the icebergs are thawing, so I am one of the… Read More
