Stop it!

Never heard of DEISM perhaps?
Deism doesn't used the word "god" as a proper noun. Deists know better, they're ... intelligent. Which you clearly are not.

Oh dear, I seem to have upset you about that video link of yours.
Now you are getting all bitchy on me.

What a shame...

You took me up on my grammar once, but I think you go do with some English lessons yourself. American? No, just stupid ...

You may notice that I use the reply so I quote your post to remind you of what you said.
If you can't follow up on what you posted a few days ago, perhaps you can't keep up with the lies that you are trying to spin.

I read, I cannot admit to hearing, that someone or other comes along and declares s/he "has found God." I ALWAYS think, where? I wasn't aware he was reported missing.

Or maybe you could answer me how the 4.5 billion years old planet Earth came to be? I know the scientists tell me it's the "Big Bang". But what provoked the Big bang, eh soldier?
When you will prove to me that the whole universe came out of nowhere and spontaneously, you too will be a little more convincing to me "shrugs".
Nonevidence isn't an answer.
In between, it's just a question that needs an answer, although you may already have decided there is no question to ask, so no answer to offer.
You weren't there and neither was I. Instead of looking for viable answers, you make up one, pat yourself on the shoulder and set back.

As far as theists are concerned thunder is created by Thor, Mars is the god of war and if you go out too far you will fall off the flat earth. Left handedness is a mark of the devil and if twins are born, one is evil and must be killed....the high priest will decide.

Religion debilitates knowledge, it's very nature is to not question and accept answers from others on faith.

If you Google THEISM and DEISM, you will see there is a difference.

The first one is what you are talking about.

The second one is what I am interested in.

I have no need for established religion, but I am looking for answers to my questions. I may found them there, who knows...

Probably not in our lifetimes. But that's OK, we'll both live just as happy and die when the time comes;0)

There you go, continuing with that lie. Of course there's a difference, deists are not dishonest enough to use a label as a proper noun like you do.

Why you take my comments "so seriously".... obviously you must be "toughened like steel" during your stay on these and other threads.

The "personal attacks" and "quips" you have on my posts are much stronger than what I wrote on "Your behalf".

From your posts and comments there is no sign that you are in search of knowledge or want to clarify your doubts.

You just want to discredit me, thru your one liner or two liner "experts opinions".

It is strange that my "little comment" hit you so hard. May be it had some "truth" in it and truth hurts often!!

Any way please accept my apologies if I wrote any thing that hurt you. It was only a "light comment" from my side.

As regards our prophet’s marriage with lady Aiyesha, there was nothing objectionable in it. It was performed with full approval of her parents, and no one in the contemporary society made any objection to it.
c. he marriage was consummated when lady Aiyesha had reached the age of marriage. There was a three years waiting period so that she could attain that age.
No you are wrong. It is very objectionable. It is vile and sickening. A sane person would know this but you are sadly brainwashed by religion. I pity you.

Stupidity is rarely apologised for. Maybe you do have self awareness of some rare kind?

You are becoming a nuisance now... Typical American...

You didn't like me saying your Youtube videos are crap, did you?

Christian my arse! If you don't know the difference between Deism and Christianity, you are as thick as two planks, but I gathered that when I watched the videos.

You are just a numpty with nothing to say...

Wow, you think I'm really that shallow to actually care about your opinion of a vlog I do. What are you really insecure about? Projection is something very common of christians, so there must be something you are seriously insecure about. Your grammar is my guess, because it makes me look like an award winning author. It would probably surprise you that my best friends are all in the UK, the Scottish ones are my personal favorites, they're so cool. You are not a deist, as I said, a deist doesn't use the label of god as a proper noun, they're more intelligent than that.
