If so, the most unlikely thing to exist undesigned -a god - would be just that. Arguments such as Hoyle's fallacy that appeal to statistics have to account for an undesigned god existing.

I spent part of yesterday and today in damp, chilly, windy weather dropping a couple of 16 foot sections of 20 year old 6 foot cedar privacy fence down to 4 foot. Cut off at the bottom and dropped the top rails. Was too high for where it was, really, and I got tired of looking at it.
The cold and damp wore this tired old ass out. Makes me grumpy. And I'm a little constipated.
Plus Topix atheists are obnoxious idiots.
Heading for my nice warm bed. Goodnight.
judging from the amount of time you spend here,you must prefer obnoxious Idiots keeping you company,
why not go to your local church to hang with some inteligent folk?

Yeah it is. It's why there are no witch burnings any more. Do you understand that the church never gave up that option - it was taken from them. Isn't that enough?

I don't think he had to return. All matter and energy, all potential that was to be, is present in the singularity. "In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God". Word = information? The key to the evolution of life from non-life, the evolution of the diversity of life, is information. It's presence, it's replication, and it's transfer. We discover new information in that process practically every day. And there is the quantum level of information and information processing. It was there from the beginning - somewhere. When the brain developed a sufficient information-handling ability, we had the arrival of consciousness. We learned "I am".

Thinking out loud.
Not bad, amigo.

There's a big difference there. This, I think, is why you're having such a hard time debating. I'll say "I didn't pray enough as a child" and you'll read "I never prayed as a child".

I know you'd wanna thank secular humanism for that, but it simply isn't true.

The witch hunts started to taper off when the courts were reformed and the inquisitorial judge position was removed.

I don't know which churches approved of executing witches, you'll have to be more specific.

Perhaps I have a sadistic streak channelled in a socially redeeming manner.

I enjoy beating up on obnoxious idiots of the Topix atheist persuasion.

There is no chance of engaging them in serious and rational discussion. Beyond their abilities. They are one way script reciters.

They gotta be good for something.

Easier than working in cold, damp, windy weather.

Getting time for my warm bed again.

Because the school districts cannot prevent a constitutionally protected right, prayer.
And to impose a punishment for praying is absurd, especially your idea of revoking his diploma for it.
But that's exactly what the secularists want - punish people for praying. Y'all suck.
So it's your opinion that kids should be able to break the shcool's rules with impunity?

Gotcha.

Well..now we are kinda moving away from free speech and into the area of justification or rationalization for crime. I suppose what would have to be scrutinized is whether it can be considered a call to action. I am not aware of what the exact standard may be, although normally what would be considered reasonable is the litmus test.

There are many root causes for why someone may feel or act as they do. But so long as the actual speech itself isn't trying to incite a crime then it should be protected.

But I agree there is some gray area. For example, if I am speaking at a landlord convention I can't say we gotta group together to keep blacks out of our properties. Yet I could say it to neighbors. Just depends in the law, the intent, and the specifics I guess

But yeah, always good to see ya too Hip

Interesting.

And that is medical marijuana.

If they can still prosecute, then they are obligated to enforce.

However, the present admin can be selective if he wishes, it appears.

.. do you think it wrong to call a Black person 'Monkey'??..

.. how about calling a Jew 'Hooknose'??..

.. if you answer 'yes' to the above, is it appropriate to call a homosexual a 'perverted abomination'??..

Topix atheists love their anarchy, and preaching it.

Every one having the right to define morality and any words for themselves is a core belief of theirs. I'm sorry, core non-belief.

I wonder how they will instill law and order if they ever win?

How will they make the population act in concert?

Practical intelligence is not the long suit of a Topix atheist.

They are good at dreaming, though.

Goodnight and sweet dreams. Never know, they might be your last.

Sorry Chris. I should have qualified my usage of the word you. It wasn't personal. Just a general homophobes in America thing. Personally, I don't need the government being my nanny. I can, have and will continue to deal with assholes in my own unique way. It's more fun that way :)
