Are you going to prove that I ever said a god existed?

Or are you still busy deleting the pictures of naked boys from your hard drive?

Let me know when you plan to ask a *relevant* question, instead of your merely engaging in childish Internet trolling.

How are you coming producing that evidence that you claim exists?(Do I need to link to the posting in which you said that the evidence exists?)

Forgive me if I don't jump on the bait.

Let me know when you decide you can back up your big mouth with that quote.

Try to find where I said it... not where you paraphrased something I have said and insist it is what I menat...

PS: you better wipe that drive to be sure. Deleting files isn't enough.

Do tell how you can know any such thing Mormon? You are indeed making an idiot out of yourself. Again. Care to make a wager on my masters from UCLA or how much I make? I am very comfortable with such. Oh that's right you aren't man enough to put your money where your mouth is eh comb over? You are a coward just Like barefoot is. Accept it.

Neither of these clowns honour bets. Dishonesty is required of them from their cults. It's in their very nature to be hypocritical, dishonest, people.
