A look at a list of Eagle 12's uneducated, willfully ignorant, mind numbing slobbering idiocy:

1.) Floating debris from the Japanese tsunami and the Nina, Pinta, and the Santa Maria, are the same as a 400 foot Ark loaded with every animal on the planet along with food for a year.

2.) The ark had a septic system. No reference to this in his holy book, so when questioned decided he'd just make shit up.

3.) When confronted wit the genetic bottle neck problem, he calls scientific FACTS and Genetic research "speculation and unproven."

4.) He doesn't believe his own holy book, says the Noah Flood was "regional" and the animals ONLY from that region.

5) He continues to dispute his holy book by saying the mountain tops were covered in SNOW, even though his holy book says the world was covered in FLOOD WATERS.

6.) Flat out avoided questions on animals needing special diets and animals from down under.

Avoiding questions he know he has no answer for or actually knows they are true, making insane correlations, rejecting scientific facts, and when backed into a corner (most of the time) he turns on his own holy book reinterpreting the actual words to shape his own conclusions.

Dishonest, ignorant, and deceitful, he has NO redeeming qualities whatsoever.

"Atheists comprised an estimated 2.01%, and non-religious a further 9.66% of the world population, according to The World Factbook in 2010."
"Studies and statistics
The demographics of atheism are substantially difficult to quantify. Different people interpret atheism and related terms differently, and it can be hard to draw boundaries between atheism, nonreligious beliefs, and nontheistic religious and spiritual beliefs. Furthermore, atheists may not report themselves as such, to prevent suffering from social stigma, discrimination, and persecution in some countries.[8]
Because some governments have strongly promoted atheism and others have strongly condemned it, atheism may be either over-reported or under-reported for different countries. There is a great deal of room for debate as to the accuracy of any method of estimation, as the opportunity for misreporting (intentionally or not) a category of people without an organizational structure is high. Also, many surveys on religious identification ask people to identify themselves as "agnostics" or "atheists", which is potentially confusing, since these terms are interpreted differently, with some identifying themselves as being agnostic atheists. Additionally, many of these surveys only gauge the number of irreligious people, not the number of actual atheists, or group the two together. For example, research indicates that the fastest growing religious status may be "no religion" in the United States, but this includes all kinds of atheists, agnostics, and theists.[9][10] Non-religious people make up 9.66%, while one fifth of them are atheists."

One other sign of paranoia is the belief the rest of the world is behind them. It goes with the delusion of grandeur.
I suppose you believe everyone will follow you on your path to victory and glory?
Your previous post stated that Atheists comprised an estimated 2.01%

Take a look at the statistics for China
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Chin...

53.41% of the population are either agnostic or atheist,
The population is 1.351 billion as of 2012, that is about 10% of the WORLD population. That one country alone shows you 2,01% is incorrect

Take a look at the statistics for Europe
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Euro...
That continent alone

Both prove the 2% figure to be godbot wishfull thinking.

I don’t really give a damn what you are presenting it for, it is a lie. End of story

I too was a christian as a child and christened.

I have on several occasions requested that the church remove me from their list of those christened and they refuse. Therefore I am still counted christian by their calculations

I wonder how many more people are in a similar situation

Wow, there's a clincher. I never knew free thought was banned in Germany under Hitler, but here it is...

During negotiations leading to the Nazi-Vatican Concordat of April 26, 1933 Hitler stated that "Secular schools can never be tolerated" because of their irreligious tendencies.[20] In a speech made later in 1933, Hitler claimed to have "stamped [Gottlosenbewegung] it out".[15] The word Hitler used, "Gottlosenbewegung", refers specifically to the communist freethought movement, not atheism in general

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discrimination_a...

That just blows the doors off these Christians who say Hitler was atheist.

His Opinions are amusing but prove nothing about atheist philosophy. Just another dance around the truth.
Hitler on atheism:
“Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure.”-Hitler’s Table Talk, pg 51
“By nature the Duce is a freethinker, but he decided to choose the path of concessions. For my part, in his place I’d have taken the path of revolution. I’d have entered the Vatican and thrown everybody out—reserving the right to apologise later:“Excuse me, it was a mistake.” But the result would have been, they’d have been outside!”-Hitler’s Table Talk, pg 145
We were convinced that the people need and require this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out.

- Adolf Hitler, Speech in Berlin, October 24, 1933

Hitler needed people to be religious and gullible to murder on his behalf.

Freethinkers were never welcome.

Wrong, Sikko.

Hitler despised Christianity.

He was a Darwinist.

Nuremberg documents settled the question.

Hitler was not an atheist. He was not a Christian, either.

The record shows Hitler's beliefs clearly.

No mystery here.

He was an occultist and he was a Darwinist.

His designs for the holocaust were based on evolution theory.

I'm just the messenger.

"tatoo" is a variant of tattoo employed by the ignorant and/or lazy who can't be bothered checking on the accuracy of their grammar and spelling.

You are disrespecting River Tam by your laziness, as we know you are a lawyer and should be more detail oriented. I am sure she treasures that tattoo, as she did have to choose the design, and suffer the pain of having it embedde3d into her sweet and tender ass. So not only are you displaying ignorance and/or laziness, but also indifference to her feelings in a callous and cavalier manner. Very insensitive of you.

You, sir, are a cad. You should be ostracized by civil society, and even the Topix forums.

Now apologize to her.

There is no such definition of atheism. Never seen it used.

The actual definition is "the belief that no god exists".

It is not certitude that defines atheism; it is belief.

Same as any other belief.

"Tattoo" is not the type of word lawyers learn to spell.

I bet he never misspells "slip and fall".

I got both one time in a holding cell in Georgia.

4 guards stripped my clothes and striped my ass with a strap.

"Stripped, striped, and strapped".

One of them took my prior actions personal. He was speaking from the place of his broken nose and teeth. Literally.

He did it as an intentional act of disrespect. He is too elite in his attitude to respect the feelings of a young girl raised by missionaries, and in fact that may be the cause for that deliberate act. A real piece of work.
