Not as long as people of Faith keep trying to make their ugly religious bigotry into **laws** that everyone must obey, we cannot.
The oppression of women and women's bodies.
The oppression of minorities.
The teaching of lies in place of actual, quality science.
To name but a few reasons why we cannot.
> What quality science? Osama see all your quality scientists spitting out 1000 lies, half-truths, innuendoes, and out and out bullshi+. Hypothesis, theories, somewhere over the rainbow teachings of parallel universes, big-bangs billions of years ago, quantum physics, teachings of multiple "us" walking on invisible parallel plains... well some of you are actually beside yourself, Osama must say! Anyway, have a nice trip down the Yellow Brick Road. Watch out for the wicked witch's 1000 flying monkeys! Tell The Wonderful Artie of... I mean Wizard of Oz hello, and send Osama a postcard when you get to Emerald City ... ya hear!?

Yours truly,
Osama bin-Sabin (Rolling eyes at Science gone wild!)

P.S.- Will you quality know-it-all scientists please send Osama factual proof of "The Big-Bang". No, not those Polaroid pics you Einstein wannabes took in your simulated lab experiments. When you over-glorified brains can come up with real facts about what really happened on planet Earth, and maybe the moon, say, in the last 1,000,000 years or so, then Osama might start paying a litte attention to you. Until then ... keep grasping at straws, and hypothesis and theories from galaxies, far, far, away!!!

The above religious babbling is a Classic Case of Fundamentalists Gone Insane.

Note that the above fails in even the most basic rules of grammar.

And also note it is utterly devoid of any useful messages.

It's just one long, batshit insane rant.

Kinda sad, really.

But quite typical of a True Believer™ who has lost all his sanity to the ravages of faith.

Poor ole Bob of Quantum Ignorance!
Completely lost in the space-time continuum
But the Einstein wannabe hangs on to his scientific beliefs...

After the Big-Bang Theory was first introduced to the public,
Bob ran out after dark and ignited his fireworks he was going to
ignite on New Year's Eve. The poor fool danced around the neighborhood butt necked yelling at the top of his lungs...

Happy, happy, happy, everyone be happy! There is no God!

One of Bob's neighbors who was watching Bob's display of insanity and laughing his @ss off hollered at ole Bob...

"No God ... What's the deal, Bob?"

Bob answered, "My beloved, all-knowing scientists just announced that our entire universe ... all the stars, planets, moons, us, the Martians, etc., etc. all came from a gigantic explosion of a sub-atomic sized point of singularity way, way out in deep space billions and billions of years ago. A point of singularity so small you couldn't see it with the naked eye.

"Wow", answers Bob's neighbor, "But, Bob ... how does that prove that there is no God?" Bob shouts back to his neighbor, "I don't know ... it just does!"

Yep, atheism is a sad state of mind!

Bob, show some signs of intelligence would you please! Yadda, yadda, yadda is all Osama hears from you. Osama knows a snot nosed four year old who posts on another thread who displays a higher IQ than you do. Osama is trying to help you from looking like a chicken with his head cut off, like that walking dead zombie, VCP. Now, that's stupidity gone wild! LMAO!!! Osama knows somewhere deep inside you their is a knowledgeable, truthful spirit that is fighting to get out. That poor ole spirit is trapped in the gravitational pull of your personal, ignorant, earthly black hole. [email protected] him ... ya hear me boy? Now, Osama wants to say, that you referred to his knowledgeable, and very truthful post as religious babbling. You know that is not true. Osama did not mention religion or babbling anywhere in his post. Also, what fundamentalist gone insane incident are you talking about? Osama is not a fundamentalist! Osama does believe in the Old Testament and will stand firm in those beliefs. Now, Bob, you be a good little boy, and go clean your bedroom before your mommy gets home and boxes your pointy ears ... ya hear!? Have a nice night!

Yes.

Hate.

You come into the **atheists** forum, spewing your hateful rhetoric, and calling people all sorts of juvenile names.

Of course we perceive you as being full of hate.

You might try being nice for once in your life.

Too much to ask?

That ...

... is entirely to be expected.

You two sock puppets are hilarious as you scurry with desperation.
I see you are too dimwitted to discerne the difference in style between my posts, and Skeptics.

Anyone with a **working** brain can see the obvious differences.

Clearly-- you are incapable of such ... "lofty" thought.

Sad.

It must be due to all the hate you harbor in your mind-- it wipes out every other thought you might have had...

If sheep and goats have deities, no doubt those deities resemble sheep and goats, and hate wolves, just like sheep do. Human god- in the image of a human, sheep god in the image of a sheep. We make our gods just like us. We love our gods because we love ourselves.

Indeed we do fabricate our gods in our own images.

This phenomena easily explains why so many gods are so...

... petty-minded.

This is most especially evident among the Abrahamic gods.

With all the salt, fat, sugar and chemical additives in Mickey's food, a god in their own image would also be obese. Sad that Ais E can't afford his own wi-fi service and has to go to Mickey's to use the internet. Sadder still if that's his/her idea of fine dining.
