Bullsh7t. Without the stench of Xianity? The world would never have suffered the evils that hatecult inflicted on the world.

Including the Dark Ages, where Xianity reigned supreme. Humanity would've colonized Mars by now, were it not for Xianity.

The "elitists"? Don't you mean the religious leadership? Who control the idiot-sheeple using Xianity and other religions?

And you idiot-sheeple just "baaa" along with the ReThuglican-Richt....

I'm not his fan, either. I know who David Limbaugh and Stephen Limbaugh are as well.
<quoted text>
No. I moved from my native state of California to Missouri at age 44 to practice medicine in Poplar Bluff because there were no HMOs there, which was important to me. And I retired 11 years later, in 2009, and moved to Mexico. That was my Missouri experience.
I knew plenty of drug reps from Cape and Jackson, many of whom were SEMO graduates. And many patients were students at SEMO.
When we went to Cape, it was either to shop at the mall, to use the little airport there to connect up to St. Louis, or for one of the drug company sponsored dinners. We would often eat at Brouchards, Celebrations, New Orleans or Mannees. And once, we saw Bob Dylan at the Show Me Center.
<quoted text>
That's a perfect description. I used to say that I'm a liberal, atheistic Deadhead Californian living in the reddest part of a red state surrounded by eight red states (in 2004, anyways) where the Midwest meets the South - yahoo, y'all!
But it is beautiful. My wife and I had a cabin on stilts on the Current river in Van Buren in the Mark Twain National Forest, and we loved being there.
Glad to know you.
Good to know you too!

Now there's a Limbaugh Law Practice at Cape, that may be who you know....I don't know if there's any relationship and I don't know Rush's family if they are siblings, cousins, etc.

The little airport is still there as are many of the finer restaurants.

Oh mercy, a cabin on current river. My Aunt and Uncle also used to live right on the river....they retired to Doniphan when health concerns made them uneasy about living so far off the beaten path.

They hosted their son's wedding on the deck overlooking the river, some really breathtaking scenery and beautiful pictures to commemorate the day.

This is one of the things I love about the internet....the world is smaller and cozier.

There is no real conflict between science and religion. What is in conflict is the rudimentary science of 2000 BC, and the modern science of the 21th century AD. Your issue has to do with your intolerance of Christianity.
Science does not address religion. Science works with objective, verifiable evidence. They make educated guesses sometimes and continue to look for proof/refutation.

It's people who try to pit science against religion when there is no need. The Bible has many errors that have been scientifically discarded, but for the people of that day and time it's to be expected.

Now, if you take the Bible as God's inerrant word, yes, there are going to be problems. If you take the Bible as man's best interpretation of what some deity might have revealed to them, then the errors fall back in place as understandable mistakes.

As a history of the place and time, it has it's points of interest.

Yet the world did survive, and went on to suffer the atrocities of godless communist regimes where millions of people were mainmed and killed. The total body count for the ninety years between 1917 and 2007 is approximately 148 million dead at the bloody hands of only fifty-two atheists, three times more than all the human beings killed by war, civil war, and individual crime in the entire twentieth century combined! The historical record of collective atheism is thousands of times worse on an annual basis than Christianity’s worst and most infamous bloodbath, the Spanish Inquisition. Add this to the unholy gruesome slaughter of abortion and the numbers are unconscionably staggering!

We will need to colonize Mars if we want to avoid the fate of the polar bears. We have no choice if our species is to survive to go on begetting the greed and gluttony of an amoral science driven vision to industrialize the world, which has not only devoured much of the earth's store of natural resources and pushed species to extinction, but caused climate change which threatens ALL of humanity, by putting the entire planet in peril!

Oh yes! In the nuclear age the possibility of extermination of humankind in a capitalistic society is very real! Even if there is no nuclear war, the AKWs are able to cause the extermination of the human race.

I agree. It would be a case of life being made more shitty rather than game over. Much like wearing a burkha!

There is no evidence for god(s), therefore no belief seems appropriate.

Atheism - The theory or BELIEF that God does not exist.(google it) There most certainly is scientific evidence that God is real. Look it up. I ain't doing your work for you. However there is NO SCIENTIFIC evidence to prove that God does not exist. It's not possible. You just can't do it. The mere BELIEF that God does not exist is a BELIEF within itself. Ergo you are a hypocrite.

There's no thing scientific about the concept of god.

Its sad that theists are taught to lie about science so much. But what more can you expect from a failed and dying fraudulent cult with no power left in the world?

Same place where the evidence is that proves a god does exist .... it doesn't exist. If there were gods, there would be evidence of such, but there is no evidence, so no gods. But if you claim gods exist, you are welcome to prove it, with evidence of course.

You are free to choose to believe whatever you want, but don't say the proof isn't there. Because it is.

Now can someone PLEASE answer my teeny tiny little question: What proof or evidence do you have to support your BELIEF that God does not exist?

ROFL! So much violence and aggression! Wow. I'm not a hypocrite as I know what I believe and why I believe it and I don't engage in the same behaviors I condemn others for. In fact, I don't condemn anyone at all. I just asked a simple question. What proof or evidence do you have to support your BELIEF that God is not real? Seriously! So much violence over one little question.
Also, having a c*nt doesn't mean that I am one.:)

I never said that God didn't exist. Atheists did. By definition atheism is the theory or belief that God doesn't exist. It doesn't specify which god. It just says God. Back to my question: What proof or evidence do you have to support your BELIEF that God doesn't exist?

Is Zeus the god whom of which you choose not to believe? Very well. What proof or evidence do you have to support your BELIEF that god (or Zeus if you like) does not exist?
