Don't dictate beliefs

Sep 5, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Star Press

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

<quoted text>Dim is being pulverized. He is the whole thread's chew toy, a communal piñata if you will.

But don't worry about it. It's humane. Dim's oblivious to his plight. He doesn't read much, and understands less.
Derek4 is bringing forth articles from great sources. He's not babbling dribble. I'm read articles from the "New York Times" And "Scientific Journal" along with many others. So it make very little sense to attack the news paper for the bad news in it. Go to the source if you don't like it.

But Khatru has discredited much of Dim's fetch-and-paste. We all have.
I've seen no discrediting. I've seen more or less whining. I have yet to see the New York Times print a retraction.

So where are the YECS in this list?

I guess you're so small you don't even register.
Unlike Atheist and Nonbelievers that are listed separate, Young Earth Christians are Christians and therefore listed as such. Was that to hard for the puppet to figure out?

Tomorrow we'll start working on how to write capital letters class. LOLNN

<quoted text>You're a fine one to talk about morals.

Sorry, my mistake. what you're doing here is letting someone do your thinking for you. Be careful though, as you may end up condoning genocide, incest, slavery, subjugation of women, etc.

Sorry, my mistake again. I see that you already do.

So, in essence...

Your religion means defending genocide and infanticide. It means you approve of the murder of homosexuals, as well as anyone else who wishes to exercise religious freedom.

Furthermore, you base your whole moral system on an unproveable supernatural being. You've already demonstrated that this means you're prepared to kill for those morals.

You'll excuse me if I prefer the foundation of good solid non-belief for building my ethics. My morals can be based on verifiable common interests, known causes and known consequences.
If there is no God then it's a majority rules on morals.

Sodom and Gomorrah for example.

Re-posting a little known fact about the lovely and charming Madalyn O'Hair:

MADALYN MURRAY O'HAIR WAS NOT AN ATHEIST!

An atheist by definition is: Someone who denies the existence of God. From O'Hair's own statements, it is clear that she DID believe in God, very much so, and she hated Him with a passion...

"We find God to be sadistic, brutal and a representation of hatred."
http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religi...

[Madalyn – can a god who doesn't exist can be all those things?]

[Madalyn's son left atheism and became a Christian. She couldn't even keep her own son on her side.]
Atheist love trying to add as many as they can to their little tiny group. I see now the want Satanists included to their group. Still trying to get their numbers above 2.5%. LOL

Derek4 did not write the article. He did not lie and I've seen no proof from you or anyone that Dawkins did not say those things.

<quoted text>Here's Dim's link

http://mileswmathis.com/atheism.html

All the quotes that Dim claims came from Richard Dawkins actually came from Miles Mathis.

This also serves to demonstrate that Dim does not believe what the Bible says.
Yes I like this part

"The theist does not say he knows that God exists, he says he believes it. Faith is a belief whereas knowledge is a certainty. This gives the religious person some wiggle room. He doesn't need to talk of proofs, since a belief is never based on proofs. Belief and faith are built mainly on willpower. Atheists will say that such a foundation is quicksand, and I tend to agree, but atheists stand in even waterier mud. The atheist claims to be quite certain that there is no god, and he claims to be contemptuous of unsupported belief, so he must provide us with some firm foundation for his “knowledge.” This he can never do"

You know that's a very strange thing.
I use an iPhone and when I paste the article it looks fine. I click post and go back and it's changes to the odd characters. So anyone with in site as to why this is or how to correct it I would appreciate it.
It's a unicode to ascii conversion. Likely the database used by Topix stores the unicode letters, which browsers cannot translate unless they know which encoding is use so they default to ascii. Ascii characters in unicode are represented by a 00##, so to convert to ascii it just ignores the 00 characters, since extended characters have a number there it displays both bytes as if they are ascii, thus a 3205 becomes a space and some funny character, depending on the ascii chart used by the computer displaying the information.

So are there particular characters I should notice and correct before hitting post?

Thank you.

Your problem is that you can't get over the fact that god isn't real.

Debating people who don't believe in your hallucinations isn't going to suddenly make them real...

Maybe you should question why you are trying to convert intelligent people who can see through your proven religious fraud?

Thank you.
Actually, no, in the copy-paste buffer the browser sees them as unicode and renders them as such, it's a communication between the server and database that needs to be addressed. Not really something you can do, and it's a real pain to correct so I don't see them bothering anytime soon. The problem is that you can't always tell now, a lot of the characters in the unicode system are also available in the ascii just using different codes, so they'll render correctly in your system dependent browser widgets until you hit submit.
