I use a Melitta filter or a french press when I make coffee, but I usually drink tea. Firelight and candlelight to illuminate the mind, not neon...

Coffee with the Pope

ROME – Pope Francis delivered a mixed verdict on US airstrikes in Iraq on Monday, saying that while it’s morally legitimate to stop an unjust aggressor, as America says it’s doing with regard to the radical Islamic State in northern Iraq, a single nation shouldn’t decide for itself when the use of force is warranted.

In light of the Vatican’s recent history of vigorous opposition to virtually any American intervention in the Middle East, the pope’s language is likely to strike observers as a cautious yellow light.

The pontiff revealed that he has considered travelling to Iraq in the near future to demonstrate his concern over the crisis, including its impact on the country’s Christians, and that doing so remains an option.

Sally Perk Your Coffee Pot

Please don't ask for coffee
when only a few will buy.
I'd rather not put on a pot
than leave it to burn dry.

So Sally won't perk coffee now.
It's not the time of day.
And me a patient gentleman
asks for tea this way:

"Sally; put the coffee on"
Sally will say "No"!
And then I'll take a cup of tea
and on my way I'll go.

Sometimes I will get some luck
and Sally serves my wants.
After all; there's too much tea
than this whole world flaunts.

So Sally perk your coffee pot.
I see it's getting busy.
The time has come for you to shine
and free me from this tizzy.

This last one might be the most useful for you, since it is written for kids in the 9th grade. The YA in the call number means that it is a book for young adults, and many libraries will have them shelved in a separate area. If that is still over your head, I might be able to find other books that are even simpler to read.

a South American tea-like drink called Mate instead of Coffee ?

Pope Francis suggested on Monday that he might one day resign the papacy – which would make him the second consecutive pontiff to do so after an almost 600-year gap. The pope said that his predecessor Benedict XVI had opened the door for papal resignations with his decision to stand down last year, the first example since Pope Gregory XII in 1415.“Some theologians may say this is not right, but I think this way,” he said in a lighthearted exchange with reporters returning to Rome from a trip to South Korea.“Let us think about what [Benedict XVI] said,‘I have got old, I do not have the strength.’ It was a beautiful gesture of nobility, of humility and courage.”

He added: "But you could say to me, if you at some time felt you could not go forward, I would do the same." Asked about his immense popularity, the 77-year-old joked that he would probably die soon so should not get too proud:“I know this will last a short time, two or three years, and then to the house of the Father.”

Pope Francis also said he had some nerve problems that he treated with a South American tea-like drink called Mate, and that he had not taken a vacation away from home since 1975.

I do find you entertaining Patrick in the perverse sort of way.
A religious troll in atheist forums that is so totally obsessed with himself he is compelled to respond to anything that has his name in it.
We pull the strings... and theists dance till the fat lady sings. She hasn't shut up in years so you keep dancing and dancing.
That's what I call entertainment.
You remind me of a goldfish aimlessly wandering in circles all day.

Evolution enables atheism, but it cannot prove atheism. They are separate concepts. Evolution is science, while atheism deals with matters of faith.

The question arises in my mind: would atheism still be a reasonable position if evolution turned out to be false? I think it would. Evolution is not the only concept that can lead to questioning aspects of religion and lead to a general skepticism that encompasses all matters of belief and dogmatism. Nor is the Big Bang. Both could be false and skepticism would still be the only rational response that my mind could take when confronted with religious claims.

so you're entirely correct. Atheism applies reation skepticism to matters of belief. Evolution has little or nothing to do with it.

Evoltution has a lot to do with Atheism. Or how did this world create humans. Only two ways. God or evolution. It's not possible for other creatures to appear without evolution or god.
Im not saying Evolution is true. Im saying it has a lot to do with Atheism.

Today the evidence is all in Evolution's favour, but how did you prove 100% there wasn't a 3rd mechanism?

And why "or"? The vatican's position is accept both.
