Mind your 9th commandment "Christian." OBVIOUSLY when an atheist refers to "God" when responding to a religie, he is doing so strictly in a hypothetical context - one which relates to the religie's definition and not his own. You construe this as some wholly illogical proof that atheists are actually deists? Your true colors are showing, and they are all shades of brown.
Boats are regarded as "she's." Do you therefore automatically pounce on the notion that they literally have XX chromosomes, vaginae, uterus and lactating mammary glands? Of course not. By attempting to win an argument by any means necessary, you are engaging in blatant dishonesty.
Bad religie! Bad!

I would say second stage of T.S.T.K.H.S.T.A. disorder. Folks we need a Brown Ribbon so we can get donations for the T.S.T.K.H.S.T.A. Disorder Foundation.. It's obvious a cure must be found or the youth of America will be faced with the contagious effects of this crippling disorder.

While we are not sure if it is a genetic disorder or viral in nature it does seem to be communicable. With all of our resources in the great country we need to put a greater effort the quest for the Cure...

Hey!
How stupid are you?
UMMM Hey! Still don't know how to use a comma,

Seems you are the expert on both,comma and coma,as attested by your state of mind

UMMM Do you somehow not realize that you are making comparisons to a couple of highly successful vaudeville comedy acts in an attempt to insult somebody who was trying and succeeding at being funny

I was not trying to insult him. I was complimenting his ability at being a comedian,which,based on his posting,I found to be funnier than either the 3 Stooges or Abbott and Costello.
As a matter of fact,he is not the only one that I have complimented,on having that ability.
Now,I will add you to the list,your antics ,also rate right up there with those who have made a successful career for themselves by spouting nonsense and gibberish,in order to entertain the public

UMMMM "I know you are, but what am I?"
Petulant crybaby. You don't get to throw my insults back at me. They do not apply.

Based on your arrogant opinion,they may not apply,Based on my humble opinion they do
UMM You may be literally retarded. How do you not get it? I discuss it time and time again because YOU, moron, keep acting as though their is proof of existence. And if that is true, then there is certainly only right to teach your garbage at school. Do you get it yet? Even a little bit? This is an exceedingly simple concept.

UMM Oh, wait... I see it now. God is totally guiding my thoughts to him. There is a great conflict in my mind and God is just using the Holy Ghost to push me towards realization that HE is REAL!!!!
Thank you! I finally understand! Thank you so much for pointing my poor logical brain to the Lord! I shall throw down my books and science and evidence and reason and take up the Bible! I've been a fool for so long! I can't believe I didn't want people to teach God's word in school! I was hardly even American. I can't believe that I was trying to oppress the freedom of speech and freedom of religion of God's people by keeping the Bible out of school. I am ashamed.
Really, moron? Really? Is that the kind of response you want? Do you think that a couple of sentences about the doubt and confusion and conflict you imagine me having in my mind is going to flip some switch and make me abandon everything that makes me a better part of the human race than you?

Do not attribute things to me,that I never said and I never said any of the above.
That your mind chose to interpret them that way,has nothing to do with me.
That is between you and your mind and you need to ask your mind,why it provided you with that interpretation....Could be,it is trying to tell you something

If you work more with science in one day than any of us do in our entire lifetimes, why haven't we heard your name associated with the cure of a disease?
Why don't you run for office and turn our environment into the utopia that you claimed to be able to create?

You wanted someone to show you where you are stupid? There you go. If you are really a super intellect, then you are stupid for wasting all your time and energy proving to us all what moronic, idiotic, wastes of oxygen we are.

Why would a rational person ask someone they do not believe exist to do anything, That is just plain Goofy....
I totally agree,If those who do not believe in God, are convinced in their minds that God does not exist,why ask him to do anything?
Why even discuss the topic? Does not make sense to me,since it would seem a waste of time.
Yet,Atheists,keep addressing that which their mind tells them,they should not believe
If I am convinced,in my mind,that something does not exist,I do not waste my time debating that topic,What would be the point?
What would I be hoping to accomplish,what would I be searching for?
Why would my mind tell me X does not exist on the one hand and on the other hand,my mind insists on discussing that which it has told me does not exist.
What is my mind trying to tell me?
Your mind is trying to bake a logic pretzel.

My understanding of what you posted,suggests to me that,you do not believe it is God's will to take the life of those who do not believe in him and that is why you believe God does not want anything to do with SD either,due to SD"S wish that they should die.
The either part,I understand to mean that,you believe that,although God doesn't want anything to do with Unbelievers or SD either,he does not believe unbelievers should be punished by death due to their disagreement with SD"s beliefs.
Having pounced on the idea that atheists believe in God, you continue your train of thought - complete and utter nonsense.

You really don't know a lot, do you? Why don't you go read something instead of asking me to explain 30 elementary concepts to you?

And "perfectly"? WTF are you smoking? I see creationists say this type of garbage all the time. Why have I never seen anything remotely like perfection in our solar system/universe?

As I've stated ad nauseam, I'm not criticizing people because they can't do math as well as me or can't remember as many things as me or whatever.

You are the saddest Mormon I have ever known. Most Mormons are highly educated and know all this already, they are smart enough to reconcile their religion with the scientific facts instead of denying science. Want to know what the bishop of my ward said when I asked about evolution? "It was just god's way of making life what it is." That's actually an intelligent answer, and one that is actually acceptable. Yep, Mormons don't deny evolution or any of the scientific facts, none of them, that makes you not only a failed Mormon but likely a liar, as I highly doubt someone as uneducated as you would ever be allowed in one of the churches simply because you'd bring down the IQ of the entire ward.
