Don't dictate beliefs

No one else can say otherwise? That is basically saying those who do "believe in God" are better? Hardly.

No problem. I might let you do some more things, if you are nice. But ask politely.

So now you are criticizing Khatru's questions?
Wow, you're not even nice to your own coharts; LMAO
I'm telling you, it sounds to me like you have the flu – you're just not yourself lately.
Maybe you can call your local atheist church and request prayer.
I know that "criticize" is a big word to 'youall', but you should learn what it means before you try to use it.

Hey, how's that search for proof of your invisible god going? Did you try fantasyland? Oh, that's right, you LIVE in fantasyland, you would have seen him if he was there! Maybe he busy talking to Harry Potter, and Paul Bunyon right now, and that's why you can't find him!!! Gee, too bad for you. If you had ANY real proof that your god is anything more than a childish fairy tale, you wouldn't have to work so hard trying to invent new, silly, unrealistic, definitions for us mean old atheists. LOL!!

What do Atheists Worship?

[Found in the middle of page 2 in the link provided:]

“What is striking to me is that the atheist insists that he worships nothing, and yet expresses the ultimate worth of doing good because it is the right thing to do. That is his worship.”
http://www.google.com/url...

“Thoughts on constant worship”

David Foster Wallace

In the day-to-day trenches of adult life, there is actually no such thing as atheism. There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship. And an outstanding reason for choosing some sort of God or spiritual-type thing to worship — be it J.C. or Allah, be it Yahweh or the Wiccan mother-goddess or the Four Noble Truths or some infrangible set of ethical principles — is that pretty much anything else you worship will eat you alive. If you worship money and things — if they are where you tap real meaning in life — then you will never have enough. Never feel you have enough. It’s the truth. Worship your own body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly, and when time and age start showing, you will die a million deaths before they finally plant you.

Serpy, is your flu better?

I think Khatru is still mad at you for criticizing her question about Noah. I'll ask her to pray for you.

I am re-posting the following information for the benefit of you atheists who may have missed out on your church attendance Sunday, so you will have the information handy - you will have another chance to attend next Sunday, October 21st:

“First Church of Atheism”:

“With the First Church of Atheism you can become ordained quickly, easily, and at no cost.”

“As a legally ordained minister, you will be able to perform weddings, funerals, commitment ceremonies, and other functions that are reserved for members of clergy.”

“Get Ordained”

“Since its inception, the First Church of Atheism has amassed quite a following around the world. FCA ministers come from all walks of life. They are every race, ethnicity, age, and creed. The one thing binding every FCA minister is his or her belief in science, reason, and reality.”

“The First Church of Atheism wants you to pursue and cherish your realistic beliefs without interference from any outside agency, including government or church authority. We provide our service for free, as we believe it is every atheists right to perform these clergy functions.

You may become a legally ordained minister for life, without cost, and without question.

Donations are accepted but not expected. If we can raise enough money we can buy an actual church! Even a donation of $1 helps.”

[Don't forget to apply for your ordination, lol.]

I don't know how the citizens of “Orefield” take to atheists and I'll probably never find out, since “Orefield” is one of the last places on earth I would ever choose to visit. I cannot imagine anything worthwhile being there. That's probably why you chose it as your residence.
But I can tell you this, you'd be wise to stay away from my community – the people living in my neighborhood have no use for atheists, lol. Unfortunately for the likes of you, I know of a couple of faithful atheists that had their faces reworked.
And don't ever be surprised what your kiddos will do.
Lots of kiddos “go astray”- and we already know from the news that 70% leave atheist homes to become Christians. When yours leave your faith, you are going to be so disappointed. But don't worry, you will still have your own faith, and it will carry you through the loss.
Oh well, maybe after they convert, they'll invite you over for Thanksgiving and Christmas to their homes for a great dinner.
Now, some atheist kiddos might do the dinners on those occasions anyway, but how sad and alone they must feel when they are thankful for nothing, and Christmas is just another day. Meaningless Christmases give a whole new meaning to "scrooge", lmao
You wouldn't be noticed in Orefield. You simply have nothing to offer.
As for Dallas, I have been there. I wasn't impressed. I do bussiness there, so your money is as good as anywhere else, but that's all I can say for it. I noticed an amazing lack of educated people, which explains why you are there. As for atheists "getting their faces reworked", LOL!! That isn't something I worry about. I have had a few parents get pissed about their kids hearing the atheist thing from me, but that's as far as it ever went. LOL!! Enough said there.

As for my kids converting... Anything is possible, but it is extremely unlikely. They have a good education, so I don't see them falling for the whole "mythology is real thing". They view all religion as mythology, and can back that up. I don't know if you have kids, but remeber, when they become atheist, as the trend continues, you should love them all the same, and not beat the fear of god onto them. That's child abuse, even in most of Texas. I have noted your propensity for violence(only as part of a mob), so I though I should mention that.

Thanks for sharing.

And you keep HOLDING ON to that faith you have in your kiddos.

Your faith will carry you through your difficult times.

Hey, Serpy - here's a place you can go this Friday, 10/19 – have fun:
15 of your atheist brothers and sisters are attending. Wow, what an impressive group! FIFTEEN?- gosh, sounds like the atheists are taking over America........
“Drinking Skeptically”
Friday, October 19, 2012, 7:00 PM
Only 312 miles from “Orefield”– start early.
Kim's Kitchen, 5842 Main Street, Center Valley, PA
Look at these delights on the menu:
Vegetable Dumplings
Shrimp, Spinach, and Egg Pancakes
Lo Mein Noodles
Vegetable rice
Spicy Chicken and Beef
Dessert (Brownie's with Strawberries)
http://www.meetup.com/Lehigh-Valley-Humanists...
[Better hold off on that dessert – you have to watch your school girl figure, lol.]
Derelict,
I am embarrassed for you. I don't know why you think that it is (add verb here) that you post about Orefield, but you should at least do it with a computer that was made outside of the lone IQ state. The one you are using is terribly inaccurate(I never thought computers reflected their owners, but obviously yours does) Kim's Kitchen is about 20 miles from here, not 312 miles, and the food is good.

Any luck finding in-viso-god yet? Maybe he's at Kim's have some bread and wine with that group of men he hangs with. Oh, that's right, they don't serve imaginary friends there. Oh well, keep looking. LMAO!!!

Don't worry about it. You stay confused - we're used to it by now.
It happens sometimes. I don't worry about it though. If I get so confused that I believe in a fairytale like your misplaced god that you just can't seem to find proof of, than I'll worry.

Any luck finding that slippery little god of yours? No? Hmmm, Have you tried the bathroom? Do they have those in backwards ole Texas yet? Well anyhow, maybe he's taking a big dump for the last 2000 years or so, which would explain why no one has actually provided any proof that he's real!!

They don't play cowboys and indians much in Texas these days. You're always behind the times.
I guess you don't get out much in "Orefield".
They don't?
That must be why everyone laughs at you when you waddle down the sidewalk in your cute little cowboy outfit.

I do get out of Orefield for business, but I'm alway happy to come back home. It's very quiet here, and that's the way I like it.

I mean - I know you need help, but sorry, I can't baby sit you - take charge of your life and learn things, lol.
Still no answer.
The fact is, that I know your silly little book better than you do, and you got caught bullshitting again. Be a man and just admit it. There is no shame in that. I mean heck, you have already admitted that you believe in a myth, so it can't get much worse than that!! LMAO!!

I used Yahoo maps.

Would you do me a favor and let Yahoo know they are out of date? Thanks, I appreciate your help, as I know I can rely on you.

So it's only 20 miles?

Well, great, that's just "down the road a piece" from your lovely home in Orefield - that will be convenient for you, lol!

Be sure to make reservations because they already have a large crowd of 15, and there might not be enough room if you don't call ahead!

Take your atheist bible and science books.

Oh, yes, and try to just listen and not say too much - you don't want to show off your ignorance to your brothers and sisters, lol.
