Baseless, ignorant assertions.
Besides, you're confusing a theocracy with a ecclesiocracy.
Look it up.
Nope-- I base my comment on HISTORY.

In all of history-- without a SINGLE exception?

Whenever **religion** is also **government**?

Anyone daring to question **anything** government-related, is killed as a "heretic".

You **are** a low-grade moron-- you do not even know history.

There is zero evidence for dreams? You are also stuck on the meaning of evidence. Most people consider the existence of dreams a fact based on evidence. Every dream is evidence that they exist.
Not if you just think you had a dream.

You can only be aware of dreams if you are conscious in some fashion. Those are high level thoughts. Takes imagination to have a dream.

Do you believe Plato existed?
If so, why?
No. Belief is a statement of faith.

I think it is **likely** someone called "plato" existed-- we have tons of stuff he wrote.

In direct contrast to your Jewsus-- of which we have zip, nada, nothing that he wrote.

Obviously, your Jewsus was ... illiterate.

No.
This stuff isn't really for you. You don't seem to be making any progress with the fundamentals.
You're concession is noted.

So. You have no counter-argument? Good.

I accept your admission of guilt.

It's only because you hate-theists keep passing your hideous and bigoted religion into **law**.
**Forcing** people to comply with your ugly bigotry.
And the final insult?
Your ugly superstitions are SUPPORTED BY TAXES.

I agree.

Then you understand that every person that has had a personal experience with God knows that's evidence of His existence.

(Without empirical evidence, just like dreams)

Thank you.

No?

Hmmmm... I suppose it "offends" your ugly god?

So what-- your god is not real, for absolutely no proof.

How can you blame something on a god you claim doesn't exist?!
But.

**you** believe this monster-god **does** exist.

I'm just pointing out, if your god did exist?

Exactly how **monstrous** it has to be.

Good. Then you can thank God for everything good that happens in your life.
Nope.

Your monster-god isn't real-- and is unworthy of thanks.

Even if your god **was** real?

It would **STILL** be unworthy of thanks.

It's probably about as hard as convincing blind people that there is such a thing as light.
Or a stubborn atheist that there is such a thing as God.
I'll bet that if you can find a person that has never dreamed, his belief will be that dreams occur rather than that everybody is conspiring in a lie to deceive him. You probably agree. Why do you suppose he is able to make that decision, and feel fairly certain that he is correct? He couldn't do that without evidence of some sort to guide his choice.
Then you should concede that God (or A god) exists and nobody's trying to convince you of a lie.
You are not good at this kind of thing. With insight, you would recognize that, and soften your dogmatic language about these matters.
Quote the contrary, your last two posts fit right in with what I'm trying to convey.

Thanks again.

Not the words of an atheist.
You are agnostic.
Possibly deist.
I have learned long ago, when speaking to the dimwitted (faithist) such as you?

To reduce the language I use to the lowest setting-- anything else, and you morons latch on to the miniscule details, and miss the main point.

As I explained earlier? I'm an atheist-agnostic.

I'm so sorry you are too brain-damaged to comprehend this simple fact.

But, your bigoted attempt to re-define words does not hold water.

That's why I come here, to learn from a high-class intellectual like you.

Teach me history.

I know you googled it.
Dreams are not real, you ignorant savage.

They only exist within a person's imagination.

But I can see how you'd be so easily confused:

You believe in mythical monster-gods.

Sad, for you.

Oh, I forgot.

In the index you will see the section called history. Within that section you will find a list of "movements"

"a group of people working together to advance their shared political, social, or artistic ideas."

"Freethinking"

Say moo.

Incorrect.

I claim that God gives us free will, which means I control my own actions.

I control myself.

Ah, the good ole atheist comeback; "you're just stupid".
If you have nothing thoughtful to add (proving dreams exist would be nice), the why bother posting at all?
Dreams are only imaginary.

Are you seriously this stupid, or did you take special stupid lessons?

Wait...

... you **did**... or you would not be a godbot.

Well... IANS has recommended you quite highly.

And since I respect the sh7t outta IANS?

Then... sure, why not?

I will try to read your stuff between the lines (as you say) instead of presuming you ought to be lumped with the likes of the god-robots.

:D

But only because IANS vouches for you (and, well, because of your last several, intelligent (and funny) posts too...)
