Interesting, now you are making a veiled assertion? Why do you not come straight out with it this time? Are you, perhaps, learning that blind assertions without evidence are actually lies? I am doubting that, and thinking that perhaps you fear the facts too much to want to know what is really going on. Maybe one day you will graduate from high school, one day you may even get a job and cease being a leech on your parents, one day you may grow up as well, but you will remain uneducated comparatively simply because you, for some reason, refuse to learn from your mistakes.
I really fudged that one. Oops. Sorry Lincoln, I have a difficult time telling gray boxes apart. ;) Not meant for you.

No, of course not, you have your opinion about "bigots" and they change depending on the people who post.

You are perfectly okay with Skanque suggesting that- horror of horrors, my wife not only ran off, but ran off with a BLACK man...

Evidence in history is specific.
The Greater the claim, the Greater the Evidence.

If You claim God does not exist, prove it!
What is your evidence?

No, I misread what he had typed and since they're both gray boxes I made a stupid mistake and did not read the names. It was a stupid mistake, meh. I screwed up.

I make no claims, I dismiss all proposed gods because none have evidence to support them. None, they are all constructs of frightened and primitive minds, nothing more. Now if there is some other thing beyond the universe, no one knows, but none of the claims of something specific can be supported by actual evidence.

I understand exactly: you think someone is a bigot... unless you see the bigot is a fellow NotBot... then, what was said isn't any longer a bigoted remark.

No, Lincoln is not an atheist, but he is not a bigot. He has a cool head in most situations and treats most people on here with respect, at least those who earn it. My post, if I actually meant to post it, would have been uncalled for because he did not instigate or begin any actual insults, now had he decided to actually attempt to insult me, or anyone for no particular reason, then I would have treated him the same way I do people like you. His comment was actually about the other troll, your best friend I am guessing since you are so quick to try help. But meh, you're my sweety, I can't stay mad at you for long.

Well, if we all have to wait until we die to find out, which I am not going to argue, why would you tell someone who is not making claims about what is after life to "shut up?"

Attention PussyKoder!!! I did not tell you to shut up so do not put words where they do not belong. I said for you to quit making an azz out of yourself which means you should shift your piehole into a different gear...capice? BTW, Is that the real you in that photo? Yes or No?

Kind of monarchy?

As everyone in this thread knows, the only "kind" of monarchy I have tried to make you acknowledge is:

Yes or no, is the Kingdom of Sweden a monarchy?

Putting aside of course: the KINGDOM of Sweden is a monarchy...

Let's start with someone who insists my 'wife' ran of with a BLACK man.

Not another man, not a fat man, not a short man... not even an English man or a short-dicked man from Bombay but... a BLACK man.

Bigoted remark?

All signs point to -yes-
