you get offended by looking at our money with God on it? Ha you are way too sensitive. Toughen up and move on with your life. 90% aren't going to change just because of a few. Deal with it
Wrong-O Buckaroo! "In God we Trust" could disappear from our money tomorrow and I probably wouldn't notice ... till you bots started wailing and gnashing your teeth. Y'all should wise up and say "Wow, separation of Church and State is a good thing, I mean, look at all those Sharia Law Muslim countries where no such separation exists! Let's not go there!"

But you won't.

once again you are showing why you are a fringe group. If I were you I'd stop wasting your precious time on something thats not going to happen. If all things relating to God were taken out of government, schools, etc. would you finally be happy? Would you feel like you really accomplished something? Give me a break
Nope. We don't want to wrench your religion from your cold, dead fingers. We want it to fade away like Pet Rocks or Neru Jackets or Disco.

I think the closest they got to all that was probably in the 50's. I'm so glad it's not that way here.

you make no sense. The In God We Trust wouldn't disappear unless people like YOU obsessed over it so much. Again, you are a fringe group at best. Do you honestly think 95% of the world is wrong and you are right? Wait, of course you do. Thats what makes you crazy I guess.

Yes, that's why 3 outta 4 new exploratory wells fail.
Not bad for educated guesses.
Random drilling might be more productive.
Ignornous is widely spoken n Okieland.
It makes a lot of sense that you would think that.

Geologists look for clues to determine where the best possibility of finding oil, coal, diamonds ect, will be. Wildcat drilling had a success rate of less then 10%. But with better technology that rate alone went above 50%. Even then of course the VIABILITY of the location is in question, and thats more over what your talking about.

This is an interesting article

Sorry but the Beverly hillbilly method just isnt acceptable and productive.

Oh come on now. Being an atheist or freethinker ect doesn't automatically make you a rational person. Everybody has blind spots and makes mistakes. The only time I worry about religious folks is when I see them going off the deep end with their belief.

I had a guy that works at a local business, who had a large cross tattoo and a large gold cross necklace, rip me off the other day. Such a small amount too but it was more important for him to "get one over on someone" than to keep a customer or behave like a decent human being.

It does imply a skeptical aspect that may well be a defining characteristic of a "rational" person. You've lost something when you merely fall into step cuz 'billions of people can't be wrong".

I worked in Seismic Exploration for 13 (interesting) years. The area under survey was called a "prospect" for a reason. The largest, most productive field in Oman lay untapped for decades because the first exploratory well missed it by \/ this much. They drilled the first hole where the terrain was a little more manageable ... oops!

But you won't.
Yep.

The motto doesn't mean squat-- the US Supreme Court has declared it such.

I laugh every time I think about that fact, too.

It's diluting the word "god" into a meaningless utterance.

Something a person might shout during a particularly intense bit of sexplay.

LMAO!

I laugh every time I spend your worthless "god".

It's hilarious, really-- your god has been reduced to a monetary slogan.

LMAO!

I **always** take overt signs of religiosity as a warning: be careful, this guy is a douchenozzle.

Better count your change, and keep one hand on your wallet, anytime you deal with someone so overtly religious.

After all-- they are certifiably insane, are they not?

Using the same false idea of popularity equates to good?

Well.... billions of flies are quite fond of excrement... does this make shiteating a good thing?
