Right. Because you people continuing to push hate is a good thing?

You are seriously an ugly human being.

You know that, right?

Apparently not--- I pity anyone who knows you in real life.

I bet they are all afraid of your anger, and violence.

If the word “hate” was counted and tabulated on all your post.
It would be equivalent to the number of our national debt.
Of course!

Because I am describing **your** ugly **faith**.

And I **must** be honest about it-- so I **must** use the word hate correctly.

It is the only accurate description of your hideous attitude.

Seriously.

You are an ugly person. I pity anyone who knows you in real life.

I understand perfectly,you want a government that will coddle you and see to your needs not matter what you do or do not contribute Feel free to repeat your mantra as much as you like but unfortunately for you it does not make it any more relevant except as a distraction.
No.

I just want a government that enforces the **existing** laws on an **equal** basis-- instead of favoring the filthy rich as it does not.

I want a tax system that is **equal** across the board--without **any** ridiculous deductions-- especially NONE for religion.

A simple, flat tax would be fair-- everyone--no matter how rich-- pays the same percent.

But you ReThuglican/TeaBagging azzholes are too **greedy**.

Or if you're NOT rich?

You are just plain stupid: anyone who votes TeaBagger? And is not in the 1%? Is a complete fool.

LMAO!

That boondoggle had TAX FREE status in most areas, and it STOLE the land it was going to build on.

And had NO protective oversight-- it would have been a disaster.

But the super rich azzholes? Would have made billions.

And we TAXPAYERS? Left to clean up the environmental disaster for afters.

Agreed. That is why I read all the ancient Christian texts and "come to believe" based on a rational assessment of them all, not just the one's Constantine approved.
Some of the very oldest are quite interesting reads, I have to agree.

Did you get to read the gospel of Judas?(what there was of it).

It was a rather different take on the role Judas played out.

More like a dark conspiracy game than anything. Interesting, nonetheless.

There is an argument that no science is a failure, Even the crashed beagle2 mission to mars provided huge amounts of data.
Well... yes, that is true.

Sometimes when the experiment "fails" it tells them more than it would have if successful.

Data is still data--even negative data.

<quoted text> I like most Mexicans I meet, I don't really know much about the government, except stories of it. But I do know some of the most ruthless cartel leaders live there in concert with government officials. This isn't saying much they are actually small timers mostly compared to whats in Washington. I heard it can be a beautiful place, but there are many horror stories , so I kinda see it as a calculated risk to tread there. With the risk being extremely high in Mexico City.
The drug cartels are a horrible problem for people that go to work for them, law enforcement personnel, their families, and assorted others, but not people like us.

The corruption is bad for Mexico, but once again, it isn't a problem for expatriates living in Mexico.

We feel like our lives are better for a variety of reasons,and are well pleased with our choice to live here.

Sure. Your idea of convincing evidence is doctoring quotes from Michael Behe to support what you claim, cutting out the part that says the opposite of what you claim.
You probably thought that was "cogent".
In your defense, it was a widespread scam.
And you are badly mistaken - most of these Topix atheists are, sadly but truly, morons.
That's my supported opinion.
Your approach is not moronic; just corrupt.
As always, thanks for sharing your unsupported, derogatory opinions. That's a very admirable quality in a person.

This appears to have the same effect.

Do you think so? I don't.

Further, in particular, OBJECTIVE evidence shows lack of the "heroic" conclusion, which is, the ruling itself being copied word for word from the ACLU, without Jones bothering to correct the typos in the ACLU brief.

<quoted text>
I also prefer not to use the words faith in that context given the way the Christians try to fuse and confuse the two. I call what you have described partial knowledge, evidence based belief, trust, or confidence.
I reserve the word faith for the belief that the sun will be destroyed along with the rest of universe in an Armageddon following the return of Jesus.
<quoted text>
Agreed.
I define intelligence as the ability of an organism to discriminate between different stimuli and to make decisions about differentially based on them in ways that benefit it more than random responses would.
At a higher level, intelligence also includes the ability to learn and to adapt to environmental change, meaning to do those things better with time.
Here on Topix? I have had to quit using the word "faith", except for the mindless mental "masterbation" that the godbots engage in.

;)

I would agree-- but even plants have a very low-grade intelligence, and appear to have some limited adaptation to conditions.

It's a very wide range, here-- even the lowliest life form can adapt whereas a simple crystal growth cannot.

And that is the major difference, I think: adaptation to the never-ending change.

One day, not too far off? I think machines will become intelligent in such a way, only an expert could tell they are machines, and not organic life.

Terminator? Unlikely-- machines would be too delicate a structure, too easy to disrupt.

It is always easier to destroy than to maintain a high level of complexity.

Say a family of four makes $30,000. At 10% that would be $3000. With Obamacare say it costs a family of 4 $26,000 a year to make ends meet.$1000 to spend lavishly.

Take a single man that makes $300,0000 per year. That is $30,000 per year tax. That leaves $270,000 per year to make his ends meet.

The family of four is the one that is creating his wealth. They are the ones that will be dying in wars to protect his wealth.

Very fair system you have there. Who do you work for to be pushing such a thing?
