Let's hope you're not typing while drilling holes, or sawing, or something like that.
And if you are, keep the cigarette between you lips--don't grab it, the ashes will drop down due to the theory of gravity.
Ever pull the skin off your lip from the filter of a cigarette getting stuck to it? Why I try not to do anything requiring lots of focus without a cigarette stuck in my mouth. It hurts.

BTW, wind and blasts of air from machinery will overcome that gravity. You get ashes in your eyes or up your nose.

And how could you possibly know what I would or wouldn't do?

The interesting thing is I have a proper education that involved using those devil books which you decry. You on the other hand hurt yourself including head injuries as a way of learning. So what is the result when we compare the two?

I repeatedly factually prove you wrong, while you think there is such a thing as topix atheists yet can't even name one.

But that's okay Dave, you George Burns on in here with your incorrect data all the time only for it to get proven wrong time after time.

So again who exactly is a topix atheist again? Head injury slowing your ability to answer I guess.

Just another mistake in life I escaped and learned something from. You would have cried and railed against the saw manufacturer. No way would you believe you could do something stupid like that. Your stupidity is expressed in other ways.

You are amusing.

You are a little bubble of bullshit spinning around in a vast universe peeking out a little portal at it as it spins and gets bumped around faster than you can keep track of it.

And you know "the truth". Because someone told you it was truth.

You have a real issue. You believe the overwhelming mass of humanity is wrong on their religious beliefs. You got "informed". "Clued in" by a few of that mass. All of whom are doing the same spinning around.

Of course this is reinforced by anger issues within you.

I mentioned earlier how Topix atheists all read from the same script, while theists have varying perceptions of the "reality" of existence. Topix atheists "just exist", and are very parochial in their worldview..

Those other spinning bubbles made you their slave. It is YOUR existence, and you let others rob you of what you can experience in it.

Sucker.

Young puppy, you don't have the makings to "prove" anything to anyone. You just don't have the life experience. Some formal education, but that is just a stepping stone to learning, and is just indoctrination if you don't use it to learn further.

You ain't even house broke yet. You go around pooping and peeing wherever you feel like because you haven't learned it stinks and isn't healthy in the long run.

Difficult training creatures like you nowadays. The digital age has made newspapers and magazines harder to find and use properly.

Aw poor Dave is reduced to using the band wagon logical fallacy! They must have brought that up in his church today. And again what is a topix atheis Dave? Has anyone met a topix atheist?

Poor old Dave must be going senile.

I think that the various perceptions are an indictment against religion, not for it. It's like saying "all you 'normal' people think the earth is made of rock, but the people in the psych ward have 97 completely different opinions on the make up of the earth. Some even think it's hollow! True free thinkers!"

You are a Topix atheist. Dumb and proud of it, and eager to show it off.

Hey, Peewee, do you know what the difference between you and a redneck plumber is?

His knowledge is more useful than what you know, and people listen to him. He is much more important to society than you.

But that won't stop your incessant yapping.

When have I said I was a topix atheist? You're going to have to dig that post up Dave.

Now I am an atheist because I see there is no observable evidence whatsoever for the theist's claim of a god.

Dave certainly I would out score you on an IQ test or a scored debate.... Easily.

We can see this by your inability to answer my question, let alone factually prove me wrong on anything.

Poor GML. His view on the world is so far back in that cave he can't see nothing unless it walks in.

Your first sentence makes you a Topix atheist. If you can't see it, it don't exist.

However, those with more developed minds have an awareness that goes beyond the visible, and can understand the intricacies of creations. Which then leads to us being creations. You are stuck on our just popping into existence.

I would have no problem getting into MENSA. Several tests over the years makes that door wide open to me.

I have not been trained in formal debate. That is something for kids to play with. If you didn't understand my point, and such caused me a problem, I would just remove you and keep moving on. I am an evolved man.

Poopsie, start barking one yip per second. In over 220 years, if you don't get real hoarse, you would have yipped for each person alive in the world today. That is a lot of people. Very few of whom that are impressed with your talents, or have reason to believe you know a damned thing. For one, they are busy with their own lives, and base it upon their own perceptions.

It is funny about Topix atheists. They think a formal education equals intelligence and wisdom. Not so unless they are used to further learning. Otherwise, they are just trying to buy the stairway to heaven. Even though they believe their passing poop will leave some mark on mankind and make it better. It won't happen, the shoes will return it to the dust.

Does it bother you knowing that one, at the least, of those poor Filipinos you help has more on the mental ball than you do?

One of the criteria for me buying this place is the lack of trees in the yard. Thus no more need for chainsaws, wood chippers, and bush hogs.

BTW, sharp tools cause less accidents than dull tools. A few moments putting an edge on something can preclude months, years, or a lifetime wishing you had.

However, Old Dave is getting wiser and more selective assessing the risks in what he thinks just has to be done.
