You posted an article that noted all “could”(suggestions) and claimed it as definitive as is your way
The total number of arrests makes little difference to those killed or their surviving families, friends and colleagues. So once again your obfuscation is noted. I see now that it is not deliberate obfuscation; you simply do not know any better, you are lacking in the basic human trait of compassion.
Just because you do not understand the humanitarian implications in no way shows me be to be in any way bigoted, it simply shows you to be ignorant of humanitarianism
I did no such thing.

Moreover, I was responding to your distorted numbers about police shootings. Real justice and sympathy deals honestly with all parties.

Everytime your bigotry is exposed, you try to lie your way out. Hence your reign as Queen of the 'rationale atheist' oxymorons.

Smirk.

Yes you did

My links on police shootings were in response to your comment that ‘could’ actually did not mean what it means but what you want it to mean

It is not my problem if you cannot remember your own lies.

And I see you have not improved your ad hom BS in the last couple of years either

There are more than 48,000 each with their own interpretation of over 200 English language babbles and who know how many in other languages. Each and every one of those cults, including yours is certain that their interpretation of the babble they choose is the correct interpretation and all others are wrong.
Christianity is my no means a cult of any kind, so there can't be any more than 0 Christian cults.

"If any man come to me, and HATE not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple".--Luke 14:26
No thank you.
I know you're a Bible expert, Eagle
I like to know about your mythology please explain.
Is the Bible the world's first instruction manual on how to properly care for and treat slaves?
Was Adam black or white?
Did Noah(it all)'s family consist of multiple racial types?
As I look around our wonderful world I see many species of Homo sapiens. Evolution describes the reason for this.
What's your reason?
Luke 14:26 is an explanation about priorities, with our God the creator always coming first. It’s like the old cliché, God, Country, Family.
Of course this stand against what you believe. With yourself as the focal point of all your love and affection. Always first in line to be fed, groomed and admired. The love of yourself exceeds the love of anyone or anything. A life long romance with self.
Naturally the thought of yourself being denied the premier position of being the center point most important priority is nauseating.
And you don’t know the Bible my friend or you wouldn’t have botched the interpretation of Luke 14:26 so badly. Your rendition was rather shallow and what you would expect from someone who promotes himself as being an authority of theology. Here we are again at your continuous need for self praise.
As you can tell I don’t have a lot of respect for self serving selfish people. They’re the kind that would watch a child drown in pool because they don’t want to get their clothes wet. It’s sad to see so many with their first priority is the love of themselves.
Luke 14:26Amplified Bible (AMP)
26 If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his [own] father and mother [[a]in the sense of indifference to or relative disregard for them in comparison with his attitude toward God] and [likewise] his wife and children and brothers and sisters—[yes] and even his own life also—he cannot be My disciple.

What words of comfort could an Atheist offer to the parents that just lost a child in a horrible accident?

What words of comfort could an Agnostic offer a person that lost their spouse to cancer?

What words of comfort could an Atheist & Agnostic offer a family of children that lost both of their parents?

Why are there so few if any totally funded Agnostic & Atheist charities?

Why are there so few if any medical research facilities totally funded by Agnostic & Atheist Charities?

There is a disproportion between the two.

The religious charities promote hope in feeding the hungry, giving shelter to the homeless, medical research, funding for education, clean water programs, orphanages, addiction treatment & counseling, after school programs for latch key kids, on and on….

The Agnostics and Atheist promote self. And self stands against benevolence because it goes against it’s creed.“Me, Myself and I.”

That is why Agnosticism and Atheism is a hopeless religion that by its indifference to his fellow man promotes hopelessness.

Atheist and Agnostics have nothing to give to society with the exception of their own self praise.

Lord knows we need more Atheist and Agnostics to step up and tell us how intelligent they are.

Because that self edification is going to feed a lot of hungry and homeless families this coming winter.

I believe that "I am so sorry" are great words of comfort. For empathy or sympathy religion is not needed. Your heart is what says who you are. Peace.

There are no true Bible experts because no one can interpret it. I took the time to read it - that was enough.

In order to understand any given mythology , you first study what it's about.

Everyone knows what Christianity is about...

Some believe it others don't... if I don't.

"We love death. The USA loves life. That is the difference between us two"
~ Osama bin Laden

“It is a heretic that makes the fire, not she which burns in it.”~Shakespeare

“Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.”~Steven Weinberg (physicist and Nobel Laureate)

If Stevie is right, then explain why atheist leaders are the most genocidal of all.

Explain people like Kim Jong, Mussolini, Jeffrey Dahmer, Jim Jones, Alfred Kinsey, Pol Pot and Stalin.
