A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch this and I prove it to you."
The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?" The boy takes the quarters and leaves.
"What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"
Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey son, may I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"
The boy licked his ice cream cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar the game's over and no more free ice cream!"
Moral. Not all people are a dumb as people think they are. But by acting as if they are, they can have fun at others expense and in reality it shows how dumb they are.
Well said!

I get along OK my friend.

Try learning 'about' the Bible instead of what's 'in' the Bible.

I went looking for it since Tater is not too likely to post any.

All I could find is some very poor apologetics bringing up some of the worst failures of the Bible. One brought up the Tyre prophesy of all things to bring up, the worst failed prophesy in the whole Bible. Another mentioned the verse that describes the Earth as a flat circle and said it meant the Earth was a sphere, and without any evidence to back up that claim. Another said there were no contradictions in the Bible when I have a website that lists over 400.

So Tater, if you have any evidence it better be amazing.

Tater? who is tater? the Tzar/langoliers/can't even be bothered to recall his other monikers guy? shouldn't he be tater-tot?

have you read the book Zealot, by Reza Aslan? sounds really interesting, our local public radio station did an interview with him today and it sounds like a very informative read.

Since "The Almighty Tzar" has not shown himself to be any brighter than Mr. Potatohead I thought Tater was an apt moniker for him.

Dark Matter Lost. "Of late Astronomers mapped the motions of hundreds of stars in the Milky Way in order to deduce the amount of dark matter that must be tugging on them from the vicinity of our sun. Their surprising conclusion? There's no dark matter around here".
As the researchers write in a forthcoming paper in the Astrophysical Journal, the stellar motion implies that the stars, all within 13,000 light-years of Earth, are gravitationally attracted by the visible material in our solar system — the sun, planets and surrounding gas and dust — and not by any unseen matter.
"Our calculations show that [dark matter] should have shown up very clearly in our measurements. But it was just not there!"
"One possibility is that dark matter is not the correct explanation for stellar and galactic motions. Perhaps the current understanding of the laws of physics is slightly off".
Just slightly! Doesn’t this illustrate that many secularists are willing to believe in something that cannot be seen, heard, touched, or detected in any way by the most elaborate equipment, yet they 'believe' in dark matter because they need it to explain their concept of the universe. Even on the eve of the CERN accelerator no-find of DM, such a faith supports their absolute; that of understanding all nature without God. And yet many of those same secularists would reject a belief in God on the basis that He cannot be directly observed!

So here we go on another ride, theorists get an idea and publish it long enough it moves out of the category of "hypothesis" to "theory" then into the heads of a believing public, with no scientific basis at all. So now, when the physical evidence comes up missing their faith carries them into more hopeful delusions,(and more grants), now that they got a believing public to swallow the bait. But heck, it's hard work trying to keep a young universe from flying apart.

So you admit your god cannot be observed and that your alternative is not scientific and that evidence is not even relevant to your position?

Which would uh, make your entire post irrelevant.
