Help my horse is gay! How do I exorcise the homo spirits that possess him? Or is there no option left but turn him into meatballs?

In the UK we can have an alcoholic drink without getting hungover.

In the UK we can drink with women without raping them.

In the UK we don't cut the pissflaps out of little girls.

It sure sucks to be you, muslim.

LOL I never understood why some of these Muslims have such hostility towards women when their mothers are women. Strange.

The Catholic religion is the last great Pagan religion. Where people still worship wooden crosses, statues, paintings, and anything that resembles the illusion they have as to how God looks.

Do you really think that a mere human being could ever understand anything about a god that is beyond understanding, beyond the human imagination. That is like a ant understanding a human being. Do you really think that a god that powerful is going to write books for these mere humans living on a planet that is like a grain of sand on the beach compared to the universe?

That is not how they see it. Their mothers are holes by which Allah has blessed their fathers with a man child, or if a girl, has assured the neighborhood rock quarry merchant of the possibility of future business, selling the stones with which she will be punished for dishonoring her family, or for saying no to a rape or to a forced marriage, or to being raped, or by being so alluring in that burka, that she incites men to inappropiate sexual behaviors, etc. etc.

It seems fairly obvious to a disinterested observer that religion is usually parent-given. One must accept it isn't god-given unless one is foolish enough to believe that an all-knowing "creator" communicated with us through one the many and varied prophets of the past and then left us to guess which one, using only the various "good books". Presumably an entity worth "worshiping" isn't that stupid, though why anyone would worship anything in a modern era is a question in itself, even if there were a god(s).
So, given all the various religions, how do you know your father gave you the "correct" one?
How carefully did he really question it himself? Did he examine all the deities in Godchecker and give them equal credence, or might he have been biased towards Islam due to the geographical, chronological and social context of his birth and life?
What would have happened if he had told you it was all nonsense?

Because one pope resigned in 600 years? With the amount of money any influence they still have?

You might as well say Apple was finished when Jobs was forced out in 1985.

I asked for a definition of leprechauns to ensure that we are referring to the same entities.
So you cant later on redefine leprechauns and start your 'wheres the evidence' mantra
The one and true leprechauns. The ones that have always been and always will be. The creators of the universe that have always existed and don't require a creator. Those leprechauns.

2nd sentence - let me rewrite this for you as an answer.....
You need evidence that God doesn't exist or denying him is the same as denying your atheism.

No the Creation process stops at the Creator,(as at zero the numbering system stops, at absolute zero, all movement stops).
So the question who created the Creator becomes a logical absurdity.
Those with "puny" little minds like yours, gloat at what wonderful questions they have asked.
But in reality it is the most stupid question that one can ask.
That is why I said that these atheist are the most unreasonable and illogical people on the face of this earth.
No the creation stops at the leprechauns. So the question of who created the leprechauns becomes a logical absurdity.

Muq, you do realize that the ultimate penalty for not beliving in leprechauns is eternal torture, don't you? You'd have to be absolutely stupid to look at the universe and not see that the leprechauns created it. The evidence is all around you.

Atheism is Bull shit. If anything paganism will be the new religion of the future since the Catholic Church was first built on paganism, that is a belief in multiple saints which replicates old pagan Gods.

It was impossible for early Europeans to believe in one God since they were so used to believing in pagan multiple God like entities so thats why early Christians like Paul and Peter made up the Christian religion where they could pray to multiple deities like the saints.

No Christianity was born from mixing the Jewish faith and the regional Hellenistic religion. Indeed Christianity was considered a pagan religion for centuries.

That's OK. Religion can exist in a shrunken, disempowered and irrelevant form, and you won't even know its there - like the Druids. You wouldn't mind Christianity if it were like Druidism. For example, what's the Druid position on abortion or gay marriage? Me, neither, and that's exactly the point. The Christians appear to be on their way to that status, too.
This is an exciting time for unbelievers.
