"Liberal" is not a pejorative in civilised circles.

It could be in a different context. Same as liberal. I expect another name change soon. Rebranding is necessary for advocates of these failed political ideologies.

Well, I better refresh myself on which one is the salad fork then. Progressive/Liberal modern day America equals less freedom, more government, fewer jobs, more hunger,,,,

Doesn't really matter much at this point. Keep fiddling.

Any of the anthropomorphic gods, they'd need actual photographs and no excuses of "it can't be seen by human eyes," just a photograph, video evidence would be better though, more reliable.

Any of the other types depend on the type.

Unbelievable, lmao. Just a photo or video huh? You will just know when you see it I guess. Nothing further required. Perhaps this God can perform tricks for your pleasure as well. David Copperfield might be The One. If there is a greater power that gave you a brain to use he is pissed off right now. Using his gift and telling him your requirements is quite amusing.

I would like a YouTube of your nothing becoming something. When that happens I will buy your nothing. Thank you for the laughs.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

So in other words, you have to buy the snake oil to see if it will cure cancer first. Yeah, I'm not that gullible.

Close. I would also like a photograph at minimum, but video is best.

You skipped the question BTW.

Well, since we don't say "something comes from nothing" there is no reason to address your strawman.

Well, you have a most loquacious nothing sir. Video Drew's example of the the Eiffel tower being evidence. Imagine the converts to your nonclaims.

Another round of nothing addressed. Who is next?

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True science that is repeatable and observable. Also, on video for the most discerning skeptic tff.

Less freedom? It's the con dumbs who are against freedom. They even want people to be put in jail for some consensual sex acts! They want to ban abortion. They are in favor of drug laws, voter ID laws. The con dumbs want more government. They want government to tell people how to run their lives.

Rose you may be the head loon. Government is at 16 percent of gdp and growing. Thank Obama, your clown prince. He continually pisses on the Constitution. Which amendments would you like to keep slave? The patriot act has expanded, your illegal wars have expanded, Guantanamo is open. Too busy marching for your nothing to speak out against what I damn well know you used to before your benevolent ruler scanned you.
Of course the freedom to kill the most innocent both here and abroad with taxpayers money is increasing. You got me there. One child butchered every ninety something seconds.

Nothing forbid you have to prove you are a citizen to vote. How draconian. Next thing you know you will need ID for beer or driving. Oh wait, illegals are getting to do that now as well. Got me again.

The laundry list is endless. Obama needed trillions more to screw up what hadn't been achieved in a couple hundred years.

Be careful what you wish for, because its coming.

You will argue any fact that doesn't fit your narrative. Government has expanded exponentially under Obama. There are regulations for regulations. You are either an anti-American radical or beyond stupid. I think both.

On behalf of all the un and underemployed. On behalf of a bankrupted future. On behalf of what was once the beacon on the hill. Thank you Rose.

You will have to live with the repercussions. I'll survive. Good luck to the fat, old women driving Prius with coexist stickers. Mad Max ya ain't.

Now tell me about your nothing, or come up with some new lies.

But that could just be an advanced science. I'd need more proof before I joined a Cargo Cult.

I specifically said it regenerated due to prayer. How we would determine if the regeneration was caused by prayer or science is a separate issue.
