Don't dictate beliefs

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

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Would you do me a favor and let Yahoo know they are out of date?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.
You used "Texas" yahoo maps. That explains why it's so screwed up. I doubt they are having an atheist meeting, It's a really small place, but it would be fun to go!! Can you post your source for that?

Don't worry about me showing off my ignorance, I'm not going to claim that Pi=3, or that the earth is 6000 years old, or that there was a worldwide flood, and than insist that it's all valid and the truth. That's your gig.

I can understand your love of quiet.
You have probably discovered it's more pleasant for all those around you when you are quiet instead of fart*ng off your ignorant mouth, lol.
"Farting off" Is that a backwards Dallas expression?
I can understand you never experienceing quiet, as you are incessently running off at the mouth. I bet those around you would LOVE some peace and quiet for once. You probably babble in your sleep. Hey, do you have that annoying southern twang when you talk? You know, the one that sounds like an uneducated hillbilly, babbling. Man, that must really be something. Your personallity is repulsive enough just reading your babble, I hate to think of it with that awful accent too!!!

Bless your heart - you're still looking to me to give you the answers you've looked for and can't find, lol.
Be a man, read - get informed, and stop whining.

You should know by this time that I know waaaaay mmore about your silly bible than you do.

Serpy, just because you can't find things, don't get so down on yourself. Just hold onto your faith, and you will be fine. We are all rooting for you, lol.
No one can seem to find your little mythy-god. So don't get your hopes up.

But hey, if you ever find him, I mean for real, let me know. lmao

Thank you for your very original and enlightening post. I have never heard it put quite that way before. You sure know how to think up some convincing arguments!!!

Send it in to your church headquarters for review, lol.

Tell them about pink unicorns too - they might not have heard that one yet.

"I doubt they are having an atheist meeting?" - Well, duh, call them up.

See, you want me to answer your questions, then you don't trust me. Have I ever told you anything that wasn't true?

Here's you a map in case you get lost going the 13.1 miles from "Orefield" to "Center Valley", lol

From: Understanding Science:

(Understanding Science was developed by the University of California Museum of Paleontology in collaboration with its Advisory Boards.)

“Why is peer review useful?
Peer review helps assure the quality of published scientific work: that the authors haven't ignored key ideas or lines of evidence, that the study was fairly-designed, that the authors were objective in their assessment of their results, etc. This means that even if you are unfamiliar with the research presented in a particular peer-reviewed study, you can trust it to meet certain standards of scientific quality. This also saves scientists time in keeping up-to-date with advances in their fields by weeding out untrustworthy studies. Peer-reviewed work isn't necessarily correct or conclusive, but it does meet the standards of science.”

“ Peer-reviewed work isn't necessarily correct or conclusive.”

[Right – this is confirmed time and again.]

I doubt it. Now if I found some proof that god was not just a fairy tale... THAT might shake some folks up.
But you know no one is EVER going to do that.
Oh, poor Serpy – always searching for proof.

Your atheist faith has failed you because you know your worthless evidence in science is fraudulent, yet you can't accept God because you haven't seen him when you're out working in your yard.

You are truly a tormented soul.

“The magic is going out of my love-affair with peer-review. When we started seeing each other, back in 2004, I was completely on board with the idea that peer-review improves the quality of the scientific record in two ways: by keeping bad science from getting published, and by improving the good science that does get published. Eight years on, I am not convinced that either of those things is as true as I initially thought, and I’m increasingly aware of the monumental amount of time and effort it soaks up. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? Five years ago I would have unhesitatingly said yes. A year ago, I’d have been unsure. Now, I am pretty much convinced that peer-review — at least as we practice it — is an expensive hangover from a former age, and does more harm than good.”
http://svpow.com/2012/08/05/where-peer-review...

“peer-review ... does more harm than good.”

[Seems that this scientist would favor doing away with peer review completely and going to the good old days when the Darwin gang and Haeckel could publish anything they wanted, lol.]

[He probably has some fraudulent work he wants published in order to get a grant.]

Climate science peer review is pal review

"Peer review has become ”pal review.” Send a paper to one of the very many journals published by the American Geophysical Union–the world’s largest publisher of academic climate science–and you can suggest five reviewers. The editor doesn’t have to take your advice, but he’s more likely to if you bought him dinner at the last AGU meeting, isn’t he?”

So --- you're finally catching on that it doesn't pay to mess with God, lol.
So there you have it folks - genocide condoned by a Christian.

You're no better than those religious whackjobs in Pakistan who shot that 14 year old girl.

How can your god be perfect when he created imperfect beings?

You're right - I don't believe it.

What's more important is that you do and worse still, you actually think that the slaughter of untold millions of men, women, babies and animals was a good thing.

Your belief system has made you a warped and twisted individual.
