Miley is smug. Unhappy. Miserable. I knew beyond a shadow of any doubt I was going to marry my wife when we first met. I know I would be devastated to the core if we were to part ways, either by choice or by death. I also know I would not remarry nor date afterwards either and spend the remainder of my life pining for Katie till death.
Can't speak for all but I meant my vows when I took them and just did repeat them.
Was that a Freudian slip you made on that last part? You just repeated them?

<quoted text>I am showing evidence your god is false. Yet none of you seem able to defend your god, nor even try.
You must identify the god you wish for me to prove false as their are many. And the fact their are many supposed gods is just more evidence their is no god.
But it is hard if not impossible to prove a negative in this sense.
Russel's teapot is evidence to that.
But our conversation is less about proving your god,and more about proving your holy book as a place to base moral reasoning upon.
The bible commands humans to do what we today see as highly immoral.
Thus we can deduce through reason, the god of the bible is not a moral god, thus not likely to even exist.
I know of one absolute. There is zero evidence for a god. I think absolutes are more rare than not. So this supposed god would surely have some evidence of existence if it were to be real.
There is a logical reason their are more believers than not today. We are living in a time that science is young. Before science was able to answer many of our questions, humans naturally invented answers. That answer was based upon superstition(gods).
We now have many answers by science, but notice how many of those who cling to religion, deny much of the science that is known. Evolution comes to mind. Some of religion even deny much of geology. Many deny much of astronomy. Some still believe demons in your body make you sick, not germs.
This is all evidence my theory is correct.
The Greeks, Roman's, Egyptians might disagree. "Our conversation"??? Which holy book are you speaking of, as you have, shown many exist. Who is this "we" person Mike? You, today see as immoral. You deduce. That's one reason I respond to "your" commentaries, you always say "we". When did people say to you, Mike Duquette, you have our permission to lump us in with our opinions? How long has religion been debated Mike? As I have said to you before, it is a belief. I have my belief and you have yours. It's really simple.

As a matter of fact, legal turned 2 candidates away just last week. Both were gradutes of N.C. Central and Campbell law school.
Appearently, they found 2 more suitable candidates. Both are white, one male and one female.
So who was more qualified? I have no problem if they were less qualified, but I asked if you did so due to race. You have yet to answer the question, as usual.

1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Say to the Israelites:'A woman who becomes pregnant and gives birth to a son will be ceremonially unclean for seven days, just as she is unclean during her monthly period.' 3 On the eighth day the boy is to be circumcised. 4 Then the woman must wait thirty-three days to be purified from her bleeding. She must not touch anything sacred or go to the sanctuary until the days of her purification are over. 5 If she gives birth to a daughter, for two weeks the woman will be unclean, as during her period. Then she must wait sixty-six days to be purified from her bleeding.
6 " 'When the days of her purification for a son or daughter are over, she is to bring to the priest at the entrance to the tent of meeting a year-old lamb for a burnt offering and a young pigeon or a dove for a sin offering.[
7 He shall offer them before the LORD to make atonement for her, and then she will be ceremonially clean from her flow of blood. These are the regulations for the woman who gives birth to a boy or a girl.
8 If she cannot afford a lamb, she is to bring two doves or two young pigeons, one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering. In this way the priest will make atonement for her, and she will be clean."
-Leviticus Chapter 12: 1-8
So this is what god said to do? Really? If you believe a god actually said this crap, I have some land to sell you.
Clearly this is just a sign of the times. They had some silly superstitions back in those days.
Belief. No running required.

Is that all you got Mike? Arguing a belief that frankly, has been argued about for you know, a long time. It's an old argument. It's never been proved one way or the other hence is why it still goes on. What's the old saying about more people in the name of religion. It's a pointless debate.

If I say "we" then I likely mean people that are like minded as I.
How long has any subject been debated, and how does it matter? Do you simply keep defaulting to your religion like this? You seem to default to it because it has been around a long time as if that means it is real.
Mormonism has been around for longer than anyone has been alive. Does that mean it must be true also? Islam is around 1500 years old. Is it now real due to its survival? See how your logic is flawed?

I lump you in, because you act so extremely stereotypical to what I argue.

Yes, there are many different holy books. Which one do you believe must be the perfect word of god? Which version of the bible, if it is what is known as the bible do you think is the perfect one?

You have your beliefs and I have mine, but I do not insist my religious beliefs be law. That is why this debate is so relative in the political conversation. Republicans want their religious beliefs to be law, yet they have no evidence their beliefs are valid.
If you wish to impose your views upon others, I expect you to validate your views.

Well, Miley, I don't run the legal department for my firm. But I am very certain they are very qualified to make a determination if the candidates they hired, who are both white, are suitable for my firms needs.

And in case you didn't know, North Carolina Central University is a predominantly black school.

Looters = republikans? Most likely. A democrat? NO,I am independent. Almost everyone owns guns, but only the stupid ones go around announcing that and bragging about what they will do .

TSF, you didn't address the part about the rioting over a verdict in a court case. Do you think those people that looted stores, set fires, beat up people and pulled that man out of that truck and beat him with a rock were Republicans? Could they possibly have been punks or thugs that took it to the next level? What do you think? I believe you've stated before you own a gun and you're a democrat. Do you think only republicans own guns?

<quoted text>"Stories"? I note the article you posted named not one single person used as the "source" of information other than the one for the side that confirms the article I posted.

All you posted is evidence fox news will just make shit up to win an election for their team.

"Those calls allegedly went to local security contractors who say that the CIA annex was also notified much earlier...... "

This is classic propaganda. If you see the word "allegedly", beware. This claim has no named source. If they want some credibility, they need to show some balls and name the source.
I can make anonymous claims all day long. None need to be true.
I only post a link from Fox because all of the other media outlets are ignoring or dancing around the issue.

You do make anonymous claims all day and most are nothing more than opinions because you never provide supporting evidence for your claims.

You can try to blame it on atheism, but you cannot show it is due to atheism.
You can claim silly crap all day long, but it is another thing to show evidence for your claims.
You do not know my life. You do not know if I am happy in general or not. You are just making an observation based on one small portion of what you see from me.
I am happy in general. I feel my atheism helps in that happiness. But all of this is highly subjective of course.
And us republicans are unhappy with how democrats have acted for the last 4 years.

So again you default. Politics have also been debated for as long as written history. So why are you here debating politics?
Your reasoning is highly flawed. Just more evidence to show your beliefs need no valid reasons for you to cling to them.

If not for the hundreds of years Christianity tortured anyone who debated them, it would likely be a small religion.
If not for Constantine demanding Christianity be the official religion of the Roman empire, your religion would be small.
If not for the crusades, your religion would be small.
Your religion has grown by force. The numbers of members is not a testament to its validity.

BTW non belief is growing faster than any religion today. This is all based upon a battle of ideas, not violence.

No wonder you run from the battle of ideas. You will surely lose. As I said, science is relatively new to have so many answers. You base your longevity on a time of little science. The paradigm has changed and it is clear, religion is now losing the debate. It will take some time for the numbers of non believers to be a majority, but it will likely be sooner than you think.

I do not think religion will ever die, as so many live in denial of facts.

My claims are not anonymous, as I use my name, unlike you and fox news in that article.

I do not care who wrote the article you posted, it showed no evidence of the claims, nor did it identify the ones who made the claim. That means it is likely to be false.That means you should not take it as an absolute truth.

And I repeat again for the hundredth or so time, if you dispute my claims, then ask me to post evidence.
