<quoted text>Same happened to me in Kentucky. 10 State cops tried to throw me in a cell, I broke 8 arms that night, put 4 out of business, when I was through the cell floor was littered with broken teeth and covered with blood. I simple left then ALL whimpering, and walked out, got in my car and resumed my trip. I think I broke one knuckle, but thats it!!!
A Kentucky cop wouldn't arrest a Boston sissy like you.

He'd shoot you and feed you to pigs.

If they couldn't eat you, they would at least cover you in shit.

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.
I see, while we were dancing I must have stepped on your toes.

I must inform you that I do not see you as an enemy as obviously see me. This is why I prefer not to use personal degrading comments to you.

In the old days two opponents would choose a duel to the end. Walk so many paces and then turn around and shoot their opponent. Sometimes both would be shot and die.
Not really a good way to solve disputes or differences.

You are probably a much better shot anyway. I would certainly fall shortly after the duel. Anger, hate, violence, vile words and attacks serve very little if you step back and look at it all. It’s how wars are started and how neighbors are killed.

As we communicate back and forth one of us must act educated my good Doctor. Distinguish ourselves from undignified comments. With that being said Sir, I tip my hat to you. You’re always a worthy opponent.

The etymological root of atheism is "atheos".

It means "no god".

Then add "ism".

You are a moron.

You are denying you misspelled tattoo?

You are denying that you are a professional wordsmith and lawyer with extensive training in the meaning and intent of words and phrases?

Are you saying you are incompetent?

Why are you trying to deflect responsibility for the damage you did to that sweet innocent young woman that looked up to you as an authority figure?

Have you no shame?

He thinks he can intimate you with his size and stature into agreement with anything he believes . But he doesn't know the resolve of truth. Or that his stature is easily overcome and his bones may come to rest as direct result to conflict of his beliefs. Because truth is more powerful than anything you care to believe.

Definition of ATHEISM
1archaic : ungodliness, wickedness
2a : a disbelief in the existence of deity
.b : the doctrine that there is no deity

Critique and denial of metaphysical beliefs in God or divine beings. Unlike agnosticism, which leaves open the question of whether there is a God, ATHEISM is a positive denial.

And since ALL vegetation would have died, and the animals would have NOTHING to eat, dimwit eagle 12 proclaims Noah did what farmers do in the winter, store hay and other food. So lets get this straight, a 400 foot wooden boat with NO reenforcement, no propulsion, loaded with every animal on the planet, in addition to all the food requirements they would need for a full year at sea, now we have to add to this enough hay and food for all these animals to feed on after the water subsided? And how long do you suppose it would take for all of the vegetation to grow back were the animals had a plentiful food source? Six months, a year? So old Noah would have to make sure he carried enough food for at least TWO YEARS. Thats right up there with the first man from a scoop of dirt, and a talking snake convincing a rib women to eat fruit from a magic tree!!!!! Can we all say..together now........complete insanity!!!!!!
