But that's just it, Bob of no understanding of quantum-faith. You don't know. You only think you know because your all egotists as Einstein pointed out and your egos won't let you learn the facts about human brains being hardwired for spiritual consciousness, you won't learn that the logic of history makes your atheist conclusions ridiculous in the light of human knowledge advancement.
In other words, you're still pissed because you have failed to convince us that we "should" believe the same nonsense you do. We got that without your posting more religionist gibberish.

You must be one of those ugly ReThuglican azzholes who thinks Boner--erm-- Bhoner (whatever) is doing a "great job".

LOL!

You morons are so clueless-- Boner's only interest is his own riches.

That might possibly be true if you actually got your morals from the bible. In fact, you don't. You apply an independent moral sense derived from outside the bible to decide which biblical commands and precepts you will follow, and which you will consign to the pile of things that are no longer 'valid'.
* You don't kill people who work on Sunday, or children who sass back at their parents, although the bible commands both with enthusiasm at least equal to that with which it condemns homosexuality.
* You wouldn't get drunk and impregnate your daughters, although the bible holds up Lot, who did those things, as an example of a 'moral' person.
* You don't practice polygamy, although the bible is shot through with such folks as King David, who had hundreds of wives and concubines, which apparently bothered god not at all.
* You don't keep slaves, although the biblical god was quite keen on the practice, prescribing very detailed rules on who could be held as a slave, for how long, how the master must treat them, how much they were worth if you had to recompense the owner for the death of a slave, etc.
* You disapprove of armies exterminating the civilian population of occupied territories, although the bible god became quite miffed when the Israelite armies spared some of the womenfolk, in spite of his specific injunction to kill everyone.
The existence of a moral sense, extrinsic to the bible, which you use in deciding which biblical moral precepts to follow and which to ignore proves that the source of morality is not the bible. The fact that the basics of morality, a disapproval of murder, stealing, telling lies, or committing adultery seem to be the same in all human societies, regardless of the presence or absence of any organized religion suggests that the source of morality may be inherent in humanity.
If religion makes you moral, then religious people should behave in a moral way, regardless of social constraints. In Montreal, in the 1960's or early 70's, the city police department went on strike. Montreal is a fairly religious place. There's quite a few churches, which were fairly well attended at the time. There's a number of religious orders that originated in Montreal and still have their headquarters there. You would expect that the good, religious folks of Montreal would behave in moral ways whether the police were present or not. In fact, the police strike led to shootings, arsons, mass looting, and people generally going all Lord of the Flies until the RCMP could muster enough officers to restore order. Proof, if it were ever needed, that H.L. Mencken was right when he said, "People say we need religion, when what they mean is we need police."

So people who have convinced themselves that a god exists have proof of god, but no one else can see it?

LOL...okay.

Show us the proof, then. Otherwise, according to your fellow atheists, you're a hypocrite and therefore should leave this forum.

Marysville CA is a sleepy town with a population just over 12,000. That's not even half the size of the smallest city in Massachusetts. You don't get to call anyone else a hick.

There is far more proof for the Spaghetti Monster than ever there was for your hideous torture-god.

Seriously.

Of course... zero minus zero is still.... zero.

But at least the FSM is a **kindly** and **caring** god.

In direct contrast to your torturing-sadistic-egomaniac-g od.

You just don't do sarcasm.

Sorry-- but your pathetic attempt to be "funny" just falls flat.

As flat as your "proof" of your god.

What's that? You didn't offer any proof?
