Christians do not trust you. You are enlightened according to church doctrine. therefore you will kill Christians during the end times. You don;t have to believe it and you don't. But Christians do. And things are not looking to good now.

So, please tell me something that isn't measurable or testable, at least in theory, and that is still real.
Whoa, difficult question there! Hmmm, I am not a scientist (obviously). But have read that gravity is not fully understood. Also dark energy and dark matter not fully understood. Could it be they they are not fully testable? How about the origin of the universe, and the origin of the laws of phsyics, could these be outside of science? I am asking cause I have no idea.

It seems that some people have a mental illness from admitting the fact they are wrong.

Do you have the feeling US has ruined the world since Bush time?
As the middle class has been substantially subtracted, Bush while known as a serial war criminal by the world, had no morals for US and promoted China, especially to its economy by using US people's money.
And that is why these are the problems not just to US, as US has ruined itself the world.

When the Chinese have no ability, how would they get there to its bigger economy, if US would not give to buy theirs and let them steal technology?

As that is not the problem that China's economy is falling, its economy is just so big promoted by US at this time that it has built up the military and posed the destructive causes to this world.
Because its people are nuts by intrusion to the rest of world behaving poorly without rules by having bad cultures of causing harms and damages to people's societies, they go to other parts of world by spreading propaganda telling these world people to do the wrong things.

Because its people are also ignorant and know nothing, US has propagandists like Henry Paulson by saying how important China is, by promoting sympathizers of China and defectors to do things for them, to make vast destructive effects to this planet.
As China has no capability, anything that they have actually came from others doing for them or by their stealing.
There are many majors damages causing to global people, especially including US people, as a result of fools promoting China, that US has ruined itself and the world very badly, to make freedom liberty people more sufferings. Yet Obama Changes nothing and even does the worse things and maybe would do all the same things.

As Bush's ideology, neo-radicalism, failure and time are finished, those who still lose their minds, do that sorts of things know where to go. Are they still wanting to follow Bush's ideas to make the defection to China?
Are there not so boring places they know better to go, other than going with China?

Once those defectors find that indeed it is tiresome in China after all these times since Bush promoted that, then you know what the better world will be like then. You might as well know and find out where to go next.

No one cares what you said or say. But Einstein believing in God would mean he would not be an atheist.

Of course, you've insisted the members of the House of Lords are appointed even though I've proved you to have a mental disorder in pretending they are elected.

Nope, social security will give you less in a week than I make in a few minutes and we know you don’t work that hard, you don’t work at all, you scrounge.

FYI, I am co-owner (with my husband (who you repeatedly lie about)) of a multi-million pound business that counts the US government and the US military among its customers. A Japanese multinational has recently offered an eight figure sum (in pounds sterling) as a buy out offer. So stop waving your arms to the wind, you have no chance.

Wrong, you obviously have taken the godbot view of Einstein, the view that he himself objected to.

What proof? You quoted one passage that said ““nearly” as funny as the bigotry of the believer” so in fact showing more disdain for a godbot than a non believer. Funny how you could call that proof.

While I directly quoted two passages (one from his last known letter) that said so much, such as “It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated….” by ignorant tossers such as yourself, and “I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one” so even Einstien thought pratts like you were childish.

You obviously have problems understanding English, Your cherry picking highlighted a quote by Einstein about which you claim “No one cares” yet you are willing to selectively quote Einstein when it suites you, hypocrite much?

Let me re-quote –“It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated….”

You have proved no such thing you delusional moron, by claiming such simply shows you to be psychotic and delusional.

So?

Einstein was NOT an atheist.

Now disprove what I said: that Einstein WAS NOT an atheist.

Disprove what I said: he held some atheists- like NotBots- in special disdain, i.e., they are particularly bigoted and hypocritical.
