My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

It is astounding that scientists still debate over the issue of animal sentience when it has already been established that animals think, experience emotion, and feel pain. To suggest that human life is somehow more sacred by comparison is another example of the end justifying the means. But don't think for a minute that these ghoulish fiends in lab coats do not salivate at the prospect of using humans in their diabolical experiments.
Oh do please provide an alternative! Wait. Never mind, prayer doesn't work in medicine and research.

Performed by the military. Guess we should do away with that as well?

I love it when a xtian's first post to me is an insult - it shows how easily I riled them without even trying.

Sorry to be a pedant, but I make that 261 if you got the "Q" on the double letter score, 171 otherwise. It's got to be divisible by 9, either way?
Brilliant score though. If only the cat word from Red Dwarf was legal.

It was a while ago now - I remember playing it in the top right corner of the board

From memory, I thought it was 221 - maybe I got it wrong.

That looks like 180 (my 171 above was an error), so maybe you played it in the top left, which gives 261. Just award yourself the missing 40 points next time you play, I'm sure your opponents won't mind!

Ridiculous! The only time you can demand proof of God's existence
I can demand proof of gods existence at any time. May god strike me down right now, this second. Sorry to dissapoint you, I'm still alive and you're still a liar, lying about a god which isn't really there.

is when you disbelieve the claim that God exists. Which is it? A lack of belief? Or disbelief?
There's a no such thing as god, that's a fact, it doesn't matter about belief. I don't believe in gravity, I experience it. And in the same way there isn't a speck of evidence for a god and so I experience no loss, or lack in my life.
It is you who chooses to invent god in your own mind and measure me by using your own hallucination as a ruler. ANd then you use that to judge me and atheists.
This is your mistake.

Melt-down? What melt-down?
Do you get a bonus every time you call someone godbot perhaps?
Because you never stop! Apart from demonstrating your immaturity, what do you expect from it?
So, you are and atheist, and some people are not atheist.
What's the fucking big deal there?
Haven't you yet come to term with the fact that people are DIFFERENT, they also have DIFFERENT opinions. Or are you too childish to realise that?
It's about time you grow up, instead of calling any passer-by godbot...
Do you expect to convince anyone by attacking their beliefs?
Has it worked yet?
Aaaaand your melt-down continues unabated.

too funny!

All it took, was finding the right buttons to push, and right on cue, you go all ballistic.

Proving you are just another True Believer™.

Thanks!

Yep. You have continued to support the hypothesis that you are just another godbot, trolling for converts (or small children-- you never know with True Believers™ these days...)

One thing you are wrong about, the church is all about profit. Lets put it this way if we where to tax churches in the US we would make an extra 70 billion a year to pay off are deficit. Plus if you look around the world and see all the fancy multimillion dollar churches that are built out of gold when there are millions of starving children in the world then you know its all about profit.
This is why the church trys so hard to brainwash you to deny logic and reason, because it is a business and its all about profit..
Of course it is.

But it is also about controlling the sheep too: the churches run the brainwashing machine such that it's followers blindly accept whatever the church says, without question.

And this brainwashing machine then goes on to tell them that the rich deserve to be all but tax-exempt. And continues the lie that these super-rich will magically create jobs, just because they are rich...

.... meh.

It goes hand-in-glove: True Believers™ make the best sheeple.

No, there will be only the myths of gods, crutches for those who can't stand on their own two feet.
As long as people believe there are loopholes to get out of death, they will waste time worshipping the fabricators of these promises.
As long as people believe in the promise of heaven and the threat of hell, they will be frightened, weak people who drink the kool-aid of the latest fad in theology.
The skewed perspectives of peoples experiences is what parents will try to shove down their children's throats to perpetuate the myth.
Again, those that can't square off with reality will cling to myth.....their crutch.
They are welcome to a mental crutch, if they like.

So long as they stop getting tax support for it, that is.

I only need to scroll back in this thread a few weeks, if that, to find some godbot shooting me down in flames for expressing the truth re most church people probably nearly choked on a silver spoon after birth. Then THEY tell us "Thou shall't not bear false witness." What double standards.
