QUOTE: Wikipedia is the -only- source where the quote shows up ad verbatim
Yet for all your nitpicking you still avoid the question:

Where did you get your Macmillan quote from?

And we all know why: because you got it from Wikipedia.

Also, to play along with your nitpicking game, I followed up on your claim that your Facebook link was EB by messaging one of the admins of the page:

Dear Mr Cooper,

I am just wondering if the British History page that you are an admin of is affiliated with or part of Encyclopedia Britannica?

Best wishes,

<>

His reply:

It is not, <>. Is there any particular reason for your asking this?

Regards,

M. Cooper

So let's play pedantic. Did you say that the Facebook link was EB? Was that a lie?

1. Skeptic claims to speak on behalf of all atheists, take your issue up with him.
Shall I assume that the Pope speaks for people of all religious faiths?

2. Do I dictate to God what I will do? No I dont dictate to God, how could I force him to do what I want? It is not my place or desire to tell him what to do.
Yet you seem intent on constructing your moral code based on how -you-- not him - sees fit.

If I willfully sin then I will have to answer for that on judgment day, I weigh up all options and think about the trickle down effects on this earth before I act, whereas you maltheists only care about living for the moment and f*ck everyone else.
And how do you think your deity is going to act on judgement day when he sees that you treat others like dirt? Does your deity enjoy that?
Siro wrote:
<quoted text>
Should I be nice and submissive to atheists?
What the f*ck for?
Kind of because your deity tells you to. It is a little thing called respect that, outwith your preconceived stereotype, many atheists gladly show to people of faiths who have the decency to treat others as they treat themselves.

Sweetie: You have to prove your assertions.

I don't even have to disprove them- though of course disproving your lies takes up hours of my time and I have a long list of lies I could list here.

Let's look at this quote again:

QUOTE: Wikipedia is the -only- source where the quote shows up ad verbatim

PS: You have already confessed that **YOU** didn't find it when you FIRST looked.

And of course: I gave you FOUR sources (and there are more).

I havent twisted any words, you are the masters of dialectics as it is your politically correct dictionary of meanings.
You say God has not been demonstrated to exist.
To who? You?
That is your personal opinion, you also say
"there is no evidence suggesting it, therefore it is mythology,"
^^^^
In this you say there is no evidence that satisfies your personal opinion because thats what a suggestion is.
And yet you are in the same camp as Skeptic who says that it is proven that God doesnt exist, that there is evidence because he says so.
So whos wrong in the atheist camp?
You or Skeptic?

Oh, I almost forgot....

Poof
So then you think that dictionaries are wrong as well.

Presidents are elected, not appointed.
Prime ministers are appointed, not elected.
No prime minister in the history of time in the UK has been elected to office.
None. Never. Zero.
Presidents are elected. Vice presidents are elected. If presidents die or are removed from office, the vice president fills that term- of the elected president- at which time he/she is replaced by another elected president.
Americans understand when they elect the president, they also elect the vice president in case the president is replaced.
Elect.
Now: is a constitutional monarchy a monarchy, yes or no?
I like making NotBots LIE in print.
Elected by the Electoral College
Approved after being elected twice, you do seem to have problems with the concepts of democracy and crown servants and the position of the PM
Every prime minister except 1 was elected to his position of head of their party, that one was deputy head and chancellor of the exchequer (a bit like the vice president thing but with considerably more clout). That one was over 50 years ago, laws, rules and convention have been adapted to cover the circumstance. Note that Tony Blare resigned, different procedure, history defeated.
Elected by the Electoral College, NOT by the voting public
Americans DO NOT elect a president or a vice president, he/she (in theory is selected by the Electoral College
It is a constitutional monarchy
Well you are easily excited, yes? Honey, I do not lie, ever. Unlike you I have no god to lie for and so donít see the point. You may (as you often do) make unsubstantiated claims but that will NEVER alter facts.

You mean I have refuted what you have presented as facts and you have rolled around on your fat bigoted behind and said it wasn't true, like when decided the two enigma machines captured in Norway don't count.

Remember: you have already insisted no one here has denied UK was a monarchy.
Nope I donít mean what you want me to mean, I mean how it is as dictated by fact.

I never said they did not count,(as you imply because you are an ignorant lying moron) I said they the first fully working, full specification machine that could decrypt ALL enigma encoded messages was captured from the U110. So donít like you ignorant fool

I see you have changed your mantra and I repeat - it is a constitutional monarchy

Yes and? You seem unable to provide any link to any post to claim otherwise. This is typical of your pedantic and irrational efforts
