You are wrong. I don't need to prove anything to you. This is real life, not a debate class. You must be very young, or developmentally disadvanataged.
You gotta prove things for yourself. It is your ass when you get planted, no one else's.
Youngblood, there are many things you go through in life you don't understand or even agree with because of social necessities and pressures. Like going to war, or havinga job you hate so you can eat, Your death will remove you from those influences.
You are viewing existence as a trained monkey.
All those things you listed, if you don't understand them, you are simply too stupid to live.

I am sure your most creative abilities are dedicated to your ego enlargement.
Being creative is something you should probably not comment on since it is a totally foreign concept for you. I'm sure Renoir, Stravinsky, Holst, Wagner, Ellington, Evans, would all tell you the same.

I think Dave expects everyone to blindly accept his dithering. My grandpa is like that. If he says the sky is made of cheese it has to be made of cheese.

The invisible imaginary ones, i just told u! Do u even listen to me?

I didn't really lose any pills, i made that part up, i was just playing with u. What i have done is lost my watch like that tho, but never any pills. I suppose i would have to have pills in the first place so that i can lose them, that would make sense.

Interesting article.
A Topix atheist takes his last breath. Ah..it is time for the big sleep.
Except he isn't sleepy.
Laying there in darkness and total isolation from the physical world outside for that sleep to come.
All the while neural circuits are disintegrating in his body and his mind, which of course includes his consciousness. Which is on its way to extinction.
Chemical decompostion. Random neuron firings. That lovely balanced brain they had, when alive, is now breaking down randomly. Would be nice if the terror circuits get broke before the higher intellect does.
Being just a product of meat, their consciousness WAS comprised of input signals from everywhere on their body working on that core of the brain circuitry. Flashes of what would have been pain injecting spurious signals within it. No more balance and self control. Scatterbrained.
Waiting.
Waiting.
A never ending nightmare.
It would never occur to evolution to provide you with a self thrown switch to ease your death.
Well, if you subscribe to the gene centered view of evolution, the pain, or lack thereof, of death becomes totally irrelevant. Probably still irrelevant even if you don't subscribe to that view. But I think you knew that, and just couldn't help yourself after you thought up that great line.

Never heard of the Gosnell dude. What'd he do wrong?
Although common in spoken english, "what'd" probably shouldn't be used in writing....

Can I say or write " How'd he do that?" instead of "How did he do that?" and "Why'd, When'd" instead of "Why did and When did?"

When'd??

Whatcha think?

<quoted text>True. Religion isn't always what motivates such violence or terrorism. Religion certainly does nothing to inhibit it and religious divisions seem to encourage sectarianism.
<quoted text> Some were. Much violence has occurred due to religions beliefs, "holy land", and other gibberish held as sacred. Whoever heard of an atheist suicide bomber?
<quoted text>Spiritual people aren't obviously better or different than people like me who feel we have no spiritual side. We're all just human and the products of nature and nurture.
Religion = superstition. It's divisive and outdated.

I took some Topixic license. You may do so as well.

When done on purpose, it's ok.

Ok, good.

When I type their instead of they're, it's on purpose and above correction from Catcher.
