You are a coward and you cannot disprove the existence of God.

Obviously being a coward has nothing to do with the existence of God.

You roll around on the floor and stomp your feet and call me names but you have disproved absolutely nothing I have said.
Nothing.
When you're brave enough to prove the god you claim exists, please let us know.

Let's see: so being a bigot has nothing to do with with belief in a god, gods, or no belief in anything whatsoever.

That atheists- particularly NotBots- can be every bit as bigoted as theists.

I mentioned that two years ago and twenty or thirty times since.

And... well, you see Einstein said it already.

But I will remind- again- that you lie when I "claimed" that God- or gods- exist.

You assert: you prove.

I say to you yet again: you are a m/f c/s liar.

Will China's economy crash?
By Michael Pettis, Special to CNN
updated 7:47 AM EDT, Mon July 29, 2013

Should we be concerned about China?
STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Michael Pettis: Some experts think that China's economy is in big trouble
Pettis: Most likely, China's growth rate will decline in the coming years
He says the country needs to shift from investment to consumption model
Pettis: If China recalibrates its economy in the right way, everyone will benefit

Editor's note: Michael Pettis is a professor of finance at Peking University, a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and author of "The Great Rebalancing" (Princeton University Press).

+++++++==

Related to the above, all along just a couples of months ago, you were told China's economy will fall sooner or faster than ever.

Its economy uprising is basically using your money to buy theirs, where US-that-Bush (who is still wanted by the world as a definite War Criminal very badly) started that by promoting that China to pose to this world with lots of problems, especially to US people, and US-Obama could not do anything about it. Look at what US right now is as it is a gangland of tyrant police state beyond hacking and spying on civilians.

Look at what Iraq is now with lots of daily big bombings, when to this time, no wonder the stupidity of Bush said history would vindicate him because stupidity has no limit.

Not necessarily the whole world will fall, and still other economies will grow, like Russia's, India's and some Latin American countries', including even South and North Korea's and some others'.

That person Bush has been wrong in everything, including making the man-made hysteria of Axis-of-evil.

Despite US economic professors have won Nobel Prize in Economics, they are the ones who are still confused.

They are fools BECAUSE NO ONE CAN SAVE IT.

When you're able to prove the god you're referring to / lying about, your ignorant opinions about other topics may matter more.

The burden of proof lies upon the idiot foolish enough to claim god is real.

Not upon the atheist intelligent enough to question the fool for trying to lie to pathetically.

And we are all still waiting for you to show us the quote of me claiming God is real.

Until you provide proof of god, god is not real, its that simple. We know you're lying because you've had centuries to come with the goods.

You will wait forever, because you are unable to follow logic or accept facts.

Fact one - you have no proof of god and are a liar and will never produce proof - only lie continuously about it as your cult tells you to.
