The Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Haward was the Company in charge. He cried about how he wanted his life back. And during the spill he went on a sail boat vacation in the UK.
Hayward failed to instill a safety culture that would have prevented the horrible accident and bad calls by BP. As far as Syria goes I can’t blame the UK for setting this one out. They have been by our side every time.
I’m thankful France came front and center and is standing with us. All of Europe should be standing front and center because if one of these weapons of mass destruction makes it into an European metropolises there’s going to be massive deaths of civilians.
Don’t think the terrorist aren’t looking at Europe. These weapons like the nerve gases could end up in anyone’s hands. All of Europe should be looking at this not from the back of the line but in the front.
If I was Europe, I would be like Israel and be passing out gas mask and other protective gear. More support and pressure on Assad may do the job. But with most of Europe standing back anything can happen. The outcome may not be good.
It’s your country and area of the world that should be concerned. I can tell you this if nerve gas agents are released on the American people. You can pretty much bet our military will get the driving orders to launch nuke strikes on all our enemies involved.

Do you Atheist have a cure? What a joke, to think Atheist would pool together and fund medical research.
Well who else would?

You True Believers™ DO NOT BELIEVE in research.

You people think praying is sufficient.

Meanwhile? Atheist **scientists** are making carbon-fibre replacement legs which actually work better (in some situations) than meat legs do...

You are being your typical self and saying something I did not say. You know the Epipen was not created by Atheist.
No, I **do** know it was created by **scientists**.

Most scientists are **atheists**.

So.... it likely was created by an atheist.

You True Believers™ don't think research is useful.

After all-- all you need to "know" is in the Holey BuyBull, right?

... right?

This is what Atheist believe happened.
Forrest Gump,
“It all started with a RNA pool party, there was this band and they were playing hard rock music.”
Things got out of hand and the cops came and raided the place.
The RNA band just kinda went everywhere.
From there, sh*^ happened.
**SOME** atheists may believe that.

Me?

I don't know-- there is insufficient facts to make a definitive claim either way.

The only real HONEST answer? Unknown.

Anyone saying otherwise? To 100%? Is **selling** something.

Even scientists who have several good **ideas** admit that it's far from **certain**.

But not you True Believers™-- you claim to "know"....

... funny, though? You cannot produce any ...

I've posted several times before that I always party with an ex USAF Major friend of mine every July 4th because he is living a long way from home.

In a similar vein, he always cooks for us on Thanksgiving.

I really think you need to grow up.

already provided a link for that, with a detailed scientific explanation...do you need some cartoons with it?
No... I need acutal proof.

Which you did not provide. A link to a Liar For Jewsus website isn't proof.

My story is mine to share with someone who wants to actually hear it and I am not special...there are many stores like mine. All you and a few others want to do is argue and tell people "who they are and what they believe". It's not your place and you have no way to make that assumption but you choose to so it anyway. It's fine..but just know that you are one acting no better than the people you choose to mock on occasion. Your attitude is arrogant.
My position is founded in scripture. Which plainly states men know, but suppress the truth and that the god of this world also blinds their minds.

Obviously that offends you, but that is what scripture says.

It is called evidence left behind... Smithsonian has evidence left behind by millions of years of evolution.

you prefer to rely on ignorance and bronze age stories, that's ok. The stupid line is one long line.Go to the back.
So are they making inductive or deductive arguments for evolution if it happened where it cannot be seen, in the past?

Empirical evidence is deductive not inductive.

Therefore, saying it is empirical is equivocation in the extreme...

But.

The **FACT** is?

God has always and ever been-- entirely missing.

Always.

For you, too-- you just lie to yourself, to claim otherwise.
I found Him and I know Him.

As have many others.

So your claim only bares weight with those that want to also deny Him.

<quoted text>I expect gods to -- as a BARE MINIMUM -- be AT LEAST as moral as mortal humans are.

Is this the case?

Nope.

Human parents would do **anything** to preserve the lives of their children.

Is this the case with your god?

Nope-- he allows people--- babies-- to die every day.

HE DOES NOTHING.

As if he wasn't even there at all...!

But if your god IS THERE?

HE IS LESS MORAL THAN MERE HUMAN PARENTS.
So if your child was a serial killer, you would seek to save its life no matter how many people it killed?

BUT YOU DO NOT EVEN TRY AT ALL.

I would **love** for there to be a benevolent deity watching over humanity.

But there is NO FACTS that support that idea.

None at all.
There is plenty of evidence.

It is your reasoning that precludes the evidence because it has a pre commitment to do so.

Is your reasoning infallible?

If the restored limb could **only** have been due to a GOD, intervening?

That is: someone loses an arm, then someone prays, then the arm grows back?

No?

What moral standard are you using to judge Him?
