You know, one of the most interesting things about people who absolutely DEMAND that those who do NOT believe in God prove the non-existence of God is?.
Funny how so many people who (say they) don't believe in God go so far out of their way to demand others prove that their is a god.

And insist that other s believe as they do.

Funny how you put the GodBots and the NotBots in a room, no one can tell them apart.

Not unlike the Cheronians.

Not being able to prove that something exists does not mean it does not exist, sweetie.

And just as someone who believes that an intelligent race of beings exist on another planet, not being able to prove they exist doesn't "prove" they do not exist.

And insisting something doesn't exist without proof is no different than insisting something does exist without proof.

But he isn't responsible for things he did not say, invented by liars 240 years later.
That is one of the final fall-back positions of the believer who cannot deal with the facts...EVERYONE ELSE IS LYING. So hilarious. Keep talking and posting quotes because it is interesting and hilarious entertainment. And who knew that owning slaves made an individual untrustworthy. I suppose the fact that God asked Abraham to kill his son makes God SOOO much more reliable and honorable, right? Whew! Religion...gotta get me some of your God.

that is because of the Democrats Like Dianne Feinstein who represent and are part of the New Left as they call it here in US which took over the Democratic party in 1960 and besides there is nothing Liberal about the Democrat Party here in the US.

The Port Huron Statement

Written in 1960 by a core group of the fledgling Students for a Democratic Society, the statement became a manifesto for the new left. Its embrace of participatory democracy and egalitarianism; its portrayal of American society as undemocratic, bureaucratic, and militaristic; and its vision of a community in which no one would suffer from isolation, alienation, or want, all struck a chord with thousands of young white college students.
