Yep, see, you start out with a personal attack.
Maybe one day your balls will drop, and you'll admit it.
akpilot's only tactic - make personal attacks because he doesn't have what it takes to debate.
Isn't it cute, the queen of calling people- Bigots, LOLSERS (Whatever that is), Condumbs (Whatever they are), racist, and homophobes- is crying about being attacked.

Sorry, stupid, it proves the story is a myth. Just like the fact plants were growing before the sun existed proves the story is a myth. Yeah, some "God like" being could have plants growing without a sun, but there is no evidence this "God like" being exists. And a much more likely explanation for the quirks in the story is that the creators of the story didn't know about DNA or photosynthesis.
If you had to put your money down on either side, how would you bet?
Bronze Age ignorance, or a "God like" being just doing strange things?
No "stupid" it proves that if such a being which could create EVERYTHING did exist, it would not have any issue with DNA.

And I'm not getting into some nit-picky argument with you about that, Mr. TTAG.
Because you lack the intellect to do so.

Since you seem to like Wiki so much, I will make it easy on you rather than attempting to explain it to you by getting into an in depth conversation about our founding which I KNOW you aren't intellectually prepared to engage in.

Um, duh.
You haven't looked at the tax code lately have you?

Considering those of us whom actually hold a job work for free until sometime in mid April just to pay our tax liability, how can you claim this country doesn't have slavery?

I'm just pointing out the fact that you don't have any real arguments, so you just attack me.
So, come up with a real argument.

That nonsense floating around the cesspool of your mind does not substitute for any showing of any posts by me, approving of slavery. Do you have any post # with any text, typed by me, that shows me approving of slavery ? The fact that I'd buy you show that I would enjoy having a whipping boy around.

When the IRS comes in and murders members of your family,(If you were murdered, I'm sure they wouldn't care, in fact they would be glad), kidnaps others and sells them in far off lands, compare taxes to slavery.

This is good news. Think about it. If the US supreme court didn't hear it gay marriage would only be legal in California only. This way the US supreme court will legalize it nationwide including my state of Pennsylvania.

I believe it will be a 6 to 3 decision with Justice Roberts and Kennedy siding with the liberals.

And I believe that you haven't read the Constitution, else, you'd know that the Federal Government hasn't the authority to "legalize" it, as the Constitution leaves it up to the states to decide the issue.
It is if it is a protected right in the bill of rights.

Gay marriage is protected in the 14th amendment.

The US supreme court did the same stuff with bans on interracial marriage in 1967.

Well, stupid, if genitals don't matter when it comes to marriage laws, why can't a woman marry another woman in most states?
