In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

You mean like when you insisted that there was a logicality fallacy in my argument where I provided two arguments to whether or not the United Kingdom was a monarchy, yes or no?
And I slapped the snot out of you and you ran away?
Happy to pick that up again, my dear, the options of the two sided coin...
Yes, precisely that...where you exercise the fallacy of the excluded middle.

See, that was easy.

You really should try harder.

I already slapped the snot out of you on this.

There is no middle.

There is no 'a little bit pregnant'.

Where's that quote, Shug?

Your ankle bracelet, your arrest record, and the red circle on the map around your house seem to indicate you try.

Certainly: you can't prove you haven't.

Call your local university.

Speak to the Political Science department.

Ask one of the professors if the UK is a democracy.

I know what his/her answer will be, and it isn't the one you've been giving.

Theist agnostics, perhaps. But atheist agnostics, we're just honest enough to say "we don't know." ;)
That sliver of doubt fuels the Godbot fantasies. Let's put it in perspective. Stated as a percentage, how certain are you that there is NOT a Universe farting supreme being floating around out there somewhere? I'm like so close to 100% that the difference ain't really worth fighting about. Is that not the case most of the time? Is a fractional percentage worth changing labels? I think not.

I did not ask what restís on your chinÖ bollocks you ignorant moron, you know absolutely nothing about what I am practising or how I see anyone and so because of your obvious lack of such knowledge, deliberate intelligence and misogynist indoctrination (probably in church) you fall back on guesswork. You can only be an inhibited christian closet gay boy woman hater with that famed well-balanced Ausi affliction of a chip on both shoulders? So we donít actually expect you top understand.
I'm not a Christian, so your opinion doesnt add up to anything does it?
Much like your entire worthless deadbeat life.

Tell me why you feel itís fine to ignore barfy butt breathís drippydick rants and abuses of Straa because he is Pakistani but when other people point this out and highlight drippydicks obvious failings you feel itís only right to attempt to rescue him? Oh I see now, you are new here and have not actually read the relevant posts but have simply jumped in on one. That would explain it.
I didnt know that Straa was a paki, dont care either for that matter.
Its your blantant obnoxious manner that I have issue with.
ChristineM wrote:
Your hatred of women indicates your mother beat you senseless while cuckolding your father (if you had one) before eloping with an illegal immigrant or Aboriginal guy for a better life. Oh wait a minute, surely it canít be that she left your father high and dry and holding the baby for another woman???
And where is my hatred of women?
Where is it demonstrated? Can you quote something I posted?
The only woman I have had issue with at this forum is you, so are you claiming that anyone who dislikes you in particular hates ALL women?
ChristineM wrote:
Could be your willingness to jump in and pick on the woman based on nothing more than you own deliberate ignorance?
Why do you refer to yourself in the 3rd person?

Honey, racism is predominantly a christian trait, one thing I am definitely not is racist (another thing I am not (any linger) is christian). I assume you donít actually see the hypocrisy in calling me racist for using the word black to describe a black man while you used exactly the same word to describe me as racist. You also need to learn that back and white are not racist terms but in this case descriptions of skin tone. Now had I used the N word in the same way that barfy butt breath uses the P word then you would have had a case, but I didnít.
I believe you are racist because of how you see blacks and black men in particular.
If you are saying that colour terms only apply to skin colour then you cannot call me racist or a hypocrite.
Who am I being racist against?
Africans such as congoids or capoids? Tigrayans? Or Tongans? What about Tuaregs (some of them could be called black)?
ChristineM wrote:
What other posts??? Ahh you mean the one when some deliberately ignorant dickhead godbot deliberately tried goading me and eventually resorted to slagging my mother off? If there is one thing you should learn about topix itís this. It is a public thread and if some stupid godbot slags off someone else then they can expect reprisals. If you donít like it then tough, either be a good christian and donít slag of what you are incapable of understanding or p|ss off
As I previously stated I am not a Christian, the rest of your rant is simply bellyaching.
ChristineM wrote:
They??? What mind? Are you intimating that black men run off with white wives? Or are you saying that all women want to elope with black men? Jeesis fooking christ on a crutch you not really understand much do you?
Not at all, one only has to visit the site you nominated as your homepage on your profile page.
Those are your own words.
ChristineM wrote:
Nope Iím not into bestiality unlike some Australians I know of, that sheep farming can get very lonely, right? Did you do your share of sheepshagging after your supply of free dicksucking dried up wen your mother ran out on you? How old were you then? Preteen?
FYI, Hitler was christian.
Which Australians?
Australian is a nationality.....are you referring to just whites or to Aboriginals too?
Or dont they count because theyre.... black?

FYI, Hitler was most likely a Deist.
He believed in divine providence, he did not believe in Jesus as most Christians would.

You are the one who brings up the issue of cuckolds
You are the one who brings up the issue of white wives running off with blacks
You and you alone

Proof? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE PROOF!

Besides ... even the scientists, mathematicians, educated folk and various flavors of egghead say we can't be 100% certain of anything. What's the point of all the discussion then? Armed with all the observational and theoretical tools of modern science and we still can't be certain of anything? Fine then. I say let's eat, drink and make merry 'cause tomorrow ... well, tomorrow we don't know what's going to happen.
