Thanks, but I am honest and cannot take any credit other than clever editing.

Here is another fun thing to do.

When a poster has been particularly rude or offensive to you, Search the web for an appropriate insult site.

Then select your favorite personalize it and post it.

The possibilities are endless depending on the conversation you can find a site to suit your mood.

For example during the 2012 POTUS election run-up
There was a lot of activity of anti-Obama people and republican lunatics posting in Politics forums.

This was pure comedy straight lines
Virtually every TV comedy show had material you could harvest

I have always appreciated clever comedy and comedians

Your reply to someone with the appropriate material harvested from a comedy show and sit back and watch the fun begin.

And when it comes to proof of any given thing - there's plenty of information available.

You take a lot of abuse dave so I figure the playing field should be equal

<quoted text>Wrong. Unlike science who claims the universe started 13.7 billion years ago.
They set the start time. Therefore they are stuck with the Nothing to something problem.

God never makes this kind of claim. God claims to have always existed and will always exist. See God is outside of Time!

He created time he is not bound by it.

SaidI: Man made time. Before our brains grew and before we learnt much we didn't need to have time. The more we evolve the more we learn the more time has become important to us.
God didn't make time what would God need that for? Oh it's time I made another universe, time I threw more rock at the moon, time to swirl my finger here to make another black hole. He certainly wouldn't need time.
There was obviously something, gases and other stuff, that was capable of exploding, stuff that created energy, particles, etc. I'm sure you've now read about on here, no not giving links to prove this, I don't need to. It's obvious.

Why do supposed "Godly" people continue to imply that people who don't believe, are liars? The amount of times I've now seen the word "lie". You should all know what LIE means. Do you lot really think that Darwin, all before him and after him, who have studied the nature of this world, have perpetuated a mass lie? If man can do that then nothing at all is real, true, honest.
How can a God that is all powerful, capable of creating all the universes, all of this here on earth, become unable to speak to us. What a load of rubbish. Really listen to yourself. To me and other's on here, no doubt your describing a fairy tale.
Norse, Greek etc. are myth? To me there the same thing as what your saying. I can understand why we needed Gods in the past I can't understand why anyone needs one now. Your an adult believing this stuff? I find it very strange.

Pascal's wager, you have a higher chance of angering a god than an atheist, ultimately, considering that of the thousands of proposed gods, most it is said don't care if they are worshiped, as long as a different one is not.

<quoted text>It is unfortunate dag nabbit we have to suffer the effects of such a simply constructed mind as yours ejaculating all over my daughter's face before they are mature all over these forums.

You whipper snappers can't see an all encompassing life force, deity, or whatever you want to call it from your physical young un perspective. You couldn't see it directly without cataracts, nor could you feel it directly of your pants are dry. nor could you hear it directly without my hearing aid. As a physical manifestation that would be like floating down a catheter. You don't feel the full force of the catheter. just the forces diverted trying to get you to have a bowel movement.

The Biblical myth reveals an all powerful force that created something. It used to communicate with it. Then this thingy felt separate, and it lost the ability to communicate directly. This powerful force became frustrated with trying to reach this dense object in its midst, an object that couldn't see it directly. It finally dawned on it that it would have to manifest a part of itself as one of these dense objects to tell it how to get back home. The light was still in the window.

However, some of these dense objects get real dense, and will never see the light. When they dissolve back into the river they don't do it as the coherent, or semi-coherent, assemblages of this life energy they were formed from. The current washes them away you could say.

Now, go switch on your Johnson, Butch, get to thinking, and come back to us again.

I, don’t know, you got me stumped, why do “godly people continue to imply that people who don't believe, are liars?”

Is it because godbots would not know the meaning of truth if it poked them in the eye?

Is it because they are brought up from childhood being indoctrinated in a lie so they come to expect lies from everyone?

The problem is that despite the facts they see faith and belief as truth, and tend to be totally unaware of the difference between faith and truth, therefore anyone who has anything to say that contradicts their faith must be by their own definition, a liar.
There are dome “godly” people who are aware of the meaning of truth and emphasise/distinguish the word with a capital letter “Truth” which when being translated from christian speak means belief. Then there is the word “truthiness”, a newly proclaimed word in the christian language that means to them –‘it’s what I believe and it sounds true so it’s truth enough for me’,- so really we have another christian speak word for belief.

If they don’t know the meaning of the word truth then why should the word lie be any different to them?
