Good Golly, your cup overfloweth with false pride this morning, doesn't it?
The Latin quote was fine unless you tried to translate it from French. The US borders more than 2 counties. You forget the Caribbean - and the majority to the north speak English, not Quebecian.
Why thank you lol.

Do territories actually count as separate countries though?

Speaking of stuff like integrity, credibility etc-

(What a t-total jerk-holding out "anonymous, unsecured" servers, for anyone to post anything. Not quite sure who's the bigger jerk-the presenter of snake oil on a platter Assagne, or the duhmmy that dumped the stuff.)
No ethics whatsoever.
I have seen many studies on who is in prison and claims religion. Obviously most prisoners cannot be atheist because not that many atheists are in America.
The main point stands, religion is not a magic bullet to morality, nor is atheism.

Seeing as how she does not use a consistent name makes for much confusion. Ironic how she claimed it simplified things.

Oh, so all the scientists and scholars are the whacky ones and the religious fanatics are all correct about nature, even though they do not study nature?

You've obviously never experienced that particular type of moment then, or you wouldn't be so crass and clueless about it, because there's absolutely no physical alteration of any kind, or none of thought either...just an actualized internal presence of well being.
And quite frankly, who are you, or I, to judge something like that, that of which belongs to only ones self. It's something that can't be bought, thieved, borrowed or taken from anyone else, it's just something that anyone has to find for themselves.
So having said that, I now shall ask YOU-based upon your reply, ss demeaning how you always approach discussing things you're possibly unfamiliar with?
That type of thing doesn't work on everybody-some can see right through that...and some might call it just being arrogant and condescending.
Is that the first time you've heard those words?
First, how can you speak for all of what that feeling, feels like?
Second, I have felt this emotion towards what I believed. I was once very religious. The feeling I had did affect my body and mind. But does this feeling mean a god is real or does it just mean my belief was real? I think the latter is so. The mind is a powerful thing and belief can power ones thoughts and feelings.
If I could convince myself that a tree was a higher power, the thought of said tree could evoke emotions that are of that in which we are speaking.
The fact you cannot understand this is how the brain works only makes me believe all the more that you guys are in an ignorant delusion.
To answer your question of who I am, I say a person who understands the brain due to study.
There might be a less demeaning way to present this concept, but I doubt you would be any less offended no matter how it was presented.

So you cannot show evidence of your charge? I see.
Diversion in order to stay in delusion is the theme all believers here use consistently.

Ya you do.
There's no such thing as perfect world...just look how hard it is for the world to even have peace.
Do I claim a world can be perfect? Absolutely not, in fact I just argued with you that Utopia cannot exist in any world. All I asked of you is to write in English, and stop with the baby talk, gibberish. It does not make for simplicity.

You almost did okay-till you got to your last line, "child"(ish)...then you blew it. Perhaps that's why you're sad?
How about just sticking with stating you have issue with those who (in your opinion) want the topic of evolution removed from schools, as well as certain discriminatory practices.
I understand, it might burst YOUR little delusion of more enlightened than thou-but in MY world, there's LOTS of enlightened people. I just choose to appreciate them, rather than denigrate them.
Now having said that, I believe I might have a problem with Science NOT being taught in schools as well, ESPECIALLY if "EVILution" was being wormed in in place of it. Oh absolutely then..please DO return the actual ethical academics of SCIENCE to classrooms everywhere, and boot the "evilution" to the curb for garbage pick up, where it belongs!!!
Peoples personal preferences in such matters, in my opinion, should be kept at just that; Personal preferences, no matter what they are, respected as such, so long as they are not harming others.
THAT is what makes up the differences in decent and civilized societies, versus depraved and animalisTic, no matter the preferences.
So you are also against evolution in schools? Then my last sentence was not out of place after all.
No wonder you see religion as harmless, as you are one of those trying to harm education. Harming education is harming others in my opinion.

I argue with the root of problems, and in this case it is religion. Don't like it? To bad, I don't like your guys fight against evolution teaching in schools. I don't like your fight against homosexual equality. I don't like a whole lot of things you guys do in the name of your faith.
You see, you and I have a different view of what is civilized. I see civilized as allowing for more equality, not less. I see civilized as teaching what science finds. Evolution is what science has found.
I see treating homosexuals as evil is animalistic.

Well many societies use such substances to help get in touch with god, and that feeling associated with it. Some chant to help bring it on, some dance in rhythms. Whatever it takes to get in trance.

WAY better than that dark age, witch hunting level garbage. I wouldn't want to have to be anywhere near anything like that either...finding it to be rather toxic and poisonous.
In the eyes of the reader eh?:-)
Yes, I agree it is usually in the eye of the reader and not a single thing to do with a holy ghost. Thanks for making my point.

Just goes to show anyone, how ignorant it REALLY is to judge anyone based on some damn dumb label lol.
And just who is judging upon a label? I see a lot of Christians here doing just that.
In fact the whole point of the list posted was to defend atheism, not indict religion. In case you have been missing the latest round of arguments, Curious has been on a mission to indict atheism as bad.

Do you think they aligned the stats in accordance to known population percentages, NOT in prison? I did NOT see that, therefore, I would say that's only HALF of a truly complete, semi accurate, statistical report.
(you know...kind of like that same theory of looking at something with in just a few hundred square miles versus a few million square miles, when comparing probabilities....)
You gets an incomplete on that one lol.
You mean like citing a study on a bunch of old people with medical problems? I agree.
I have found no stats that show believers are criminals or bad people any more so than atheists or vice versa. That is the point.

Naaah,Those are the symptoms experienced by an Atheist when they consume the contents of their stills...
Yiagio can tell you about that.
He has confessed to ingesting bad liquor while watching movies with his friends.
And yes,,,,Birds evolved from dinosaurs;
It's fashionable today to claim that birds evolved from dinosaurs, although again, there is little agreement on which dinosaur lineage was ancestral to birds. The claim persists in spite of the fact that birds and dinosaurs differ markedly. Legs must become wings and scales must become feathers. Dinosaurs had solid bones, yet bird bones are hollow. Reptilian dinosaurs were likely cold blooded while birds are warm blooded with an extremely high metabolism. Dinosaurs had lungs similar to mammals, while the bird's breathing scheme is totally different. At least dinosaur eggs were similar to birds eggs
Any birdbrain can attest to that inane opinion
Necessity is the mother of invention and there are those who need to invent the unbelievable in order to justify the ludicrous
