LOL!
A day spent cleaning out litter boxes has more appeal than Twilight, or so I've heard.
I've never seen any, myself, so I cannot say.
But the trailers certainly do make me want to change the station...
:)
I must admit, all I know about the Twilight saga is what I've seen from the trailers. With such limited exposure and assumptions, I'd rather rent 'West Side Story' if I'm in the mood for singing and dancing. If not, see the Romeo and Juliet play.

From a mythical perspective of werewolves and vampires, they'd only be fighting over hunting grounds of humans. Border skirmishes nowadays.

Now here's a real horror story:

For the first 8 minutes and 30 seconds, he uses science to debunk the story of the stopping the day for Joshua. It gets really brutal after that.

I'm at a loss here. I have no idea how to kill a child in the name of Christian morality. But apparently, the mouthpieces of Christianity have no problem with it.

Thunderf00t is a hoot-- and is very, very good at debates. I've seen quite a number of his videos.

As for your last thought?

That is quite evident: Genuine Christians™ have literally sacrificed their very children on the metaphorical altar of their ugly beliefs.

For example, I know of several cases of kids dying, because their True Believer™ parents prayed instead of taking their sick kids to hospital.

That is literally killing their kids for Jesus....

... another example, is kids who cannot cope with the real world, because they were taught creationism, instead of reality.

These kids lives are ruined, because of their parents' beliefs.

God has never existed, so that tells you how much impact talking to thin air has had around the whole world, since the beginning of recorded time itself.

When theists stop being cowards and attempt to honestly prove their gods, instead of lying about it, they'd automatically gain respect and probably become atheists.

Mainly because if they are honest people, they'll look back at their beliefs and think:

"What a selfish ignorant worthless brainwashed, theist piece of sh*t I was, behaving horribly toward simple people who merely lacked a belief in god. For that simple belief I called them hitler, stalin & mao! I must be ashmed of myself for being such a pig ignorant theist pr*ck. I even followed a book that told me what to think of these people I'd never had the courage to meet myself."

Atheism is a lack of belief in god. It's definition will never include murder.

I'm sorry theists, we don't think like you and follow the blind hate written in your ridiculous rags.

Teaching intelligent design in public school biology classes violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States (and Article I, Section 3 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution) because intelligent design is not science and "cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and thus religious, antecedents."

I believe you need to attend the library crack open the book and learn something.

Why are you afraid of libraries?
Might they shatter your illusions?

Science is expanding, and with it our vision of the universe. This new and constantly changing view may not always give us comfort, but it does have the virtue of truth according to our most effective resources for acquiring knowledge.

No philosophy, moral outlook, or religion can be inconsistent with the findings of science and hope to endure among educated people.

Atheism = lack of belief in god

Murder = someone killing someone else.

I know you failed at Notre Dame, but here are the basic definitions.

Considering that you believe that jesus rode on the backs of dinosaurs, I don't know how much help this will be.

Yep, I can see the psychic classes you took at Burger King has really helped you figuring out how and when people failed.

Skeptic = Hitler

Hitler = Murder

Skeptic = Murder

Now it's correct.
