I might introduce you to the "Buck YO-YO".

That's where I pull your underwear out the top of your pants, and lift you with one hand, tilting your head over and bouncing you up and down by your shorts with your head banging the floor until your draws rip out.

It's a big hit at parties.

You're saying the SC sometimes gets it wrong? I agree.
But at least the Constitution was appropriately amended.
Not be the 9 people in robes, but by "the people".
We dropped that troublesome formality. Now liberal justices just pencil in their whims.
Are you referring to those liberal justices who have decided corporations are persons?

Oh.

OK Buck, let's say you're correct.
Thanks, man. I am correct.

Seriously, as an attorney, have you ever seen anyone take a case like that of the alleged "infinite universe", tear it apart, dismantle it, and destroy it with more searing force of logic than ole' Buck has done?

If I had gone to law school, I would be a dangerous man.

Pro-Russian separatist militiamen have seized custody of the bodies of about 200 victims of the Malaysia Airlines passenger jet that was blown out of the sky by a surface-to-air missile, Ukrainian officials said on Sunday, and rebels continued to limit access to the crash site in eastern Ukraine, blocking the work of experts even as hundreds of untrained local volunteers were picking through the wreckage with sticks.
World leaders have voiced a growing chorus of outrage over the delay in recovering remains of victims, and over the refusal by rebels to cede authority over the disaster site, where Flight 17, a Boeing 777 carrying 298 passengers and crew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed and burned on Thursday afternoon.
Ukrainian emergency responders, working under the watchful eyes of armed rebels, had recovered 196 bodies but were forced to turn them over to the separatists, Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council, said at a briefing in Kiev on Sunday. Mr. Lysenko said officials believed that 38 of those bodies were taken to the morgue in Donetsk, a regional capital that is controlled by separatists.
The Koninklijke Landmacht are sharpening their spikes and pitchforks as we speak.

Oh.
They didn't decide corporations are persons.

I read the decision since you brought it up previously.

The ruling is constitutionally correct.

It troubles me to cause damage to your ego, Buck, but I must be honest with you.

Your argument put this member of the jury panel to sleep a long time ago.

May you someday have the privilege of watching Catcher perform in the courtroom.

But hey, don't worry, you do remain a very dangerous person (let's not be sexist).

Absolutely amazing! You will say anything just to get some reaction from people! I would love to meet you and discover what makes you tick. I am sure that you lack attention from "loved ones" and you fight so hard to get it; even if it has to be from anonymous people.

You must know by now that I know you are not tough... not at all. I would guess that you run from every encounter.

I really would love to figure out what makes people like you tick! Why did you pick Joe King? Did you know him or just a lucky search? Now that everyone knows that he is in ICU at the hospital, why do you continue to pretend to be him? Why do these others continue to talk to you as if you care about your replies? As if you won't say anything to keep them on the hook?

Please, there is no need to reply to me. I, of course, realize that you will say anything to keep me on the hook as well and I don't need that. I hope that one day I get to read the research done on people like you. Very curious.

If it is a physical phenomenon, it has a distance. Whether I can travel that distance, or even know what the distance is, is a different question.
Is that all you have?
Yes it does it's "infinite" .lol

Perhaps you are correct about infinity/noninfinity.

But this I know something about.

And I can tell you, with complete confidence, that you are dead wrong.

Did you know it is easier to call in pigs, call in predators, call in dogs, call in deer and elk, and call in idiots by making the right noises than it is to go looking for them?

Smile for the camera. Oops, let's slick that cowlick back first so you at least don't look dumb. er, not saying you are, mind you.

Yes, after one puppet is busted, it is common for the puppeteer to send another puppet to defend!

I am sure that there is not one christian on this forum and that is a shame.

Why would there have to be one?

The topic is about atheists having faith in their belief. Totally independent of any religious doctrines.

The topic of atheism is not totally independent

Religion is also part of the topic title.

A comparison is being made.

I accept your apology.
