When South Florida atheists held their first meeting, they were just five friends, having a beer at a bar.

Note I was questioning another poster, not you.
My "Why" and "Prove it" questions were in reply to someone else.

After 70 years of nothing you are right where you began LOL.

Stop using the internet, you are contributing to the capitalist cause.

Feel free to explain your utopia. I will need some detail though. First we must topple capitalism though correct?

I didn't catch your scientific, natural explanation for the universe. Do you have one? Don't skip steps.

I'm sorry that you have no proof of god, but please don't take it out on science. After all it is thanks to science that you are able to post this boat load of anti-science horsesh*t propoganda,( that probably came from the discovery institute which wants everyone to believe th eearth is 6000 years old and fossils not being "real"), so hundreds of people can see what a lying ignorant creationist tool you really are.
Not creationism but evolutionism is tool of science!

I love capitalism, however, the market online operated under a completely different, and new, paradigm. It is true capitalism, not the corporatism we see in the rest of the world, and that is why many of us are very protective of the internet as a whole. You can thank me for helping to make sure you still have the right to spew your garbage online later, though.

Online commerce is entirely supply and demand driven, no one picks winners, people either succeed or fail online on their own merit.

We don't have one ... yet.

Why do you want to accept the made up mythological one that gives you no answers or benefits instead of learning what you can about the real universe?

I don't disagree this isn't near pure capitalism. The narrative has changed and the political will to implement what had been the best example of workable commerce on this scale isn't there. Why don't you stop advocating for the progressive side. We know that is a nonstarter. Yet, you march against your own words. Thank me for trying to remove your blinders.

I agree with you on the internet. Guess what Obama/progressives have their eyes on beside your pension. You can learn a lot from proposed legislation. Your actions aren't in sync with your words.

It's not difficult for me to agree with you on certain things. I'm intellectually honest. Try it sonetime. It's liberating.

When your yet is ready we can debate my belief. I don't debate nothing.

Do you believe in a historical Jesus? Let's test your intellectual honesty. You can do it. Break those chains!

You fight hard for it though. This is a gun and evidence free zone. My sticker ensures that.

Um, I know most of them the moment Google does. ;) We missed one recently. >.> One that gives other countries the power to essentially get all your information from your ISP, as well as the federal government, all in the guise of "protecting intellectual property," Obama signed the treaty. But if you think the Republicans would not do that, think again, they're both trying to control the internet. But we will not make it easy, the internet is the last fair and balanced place in the world where we have most freedom of speech.
As for the Jesus, there were a lot of street preachers in that time, and Jesus was a very common first name. As for the bible stories, they are ripped off from other stories, and there is zero evidence supporting that the new versions of those stories, the ones in the bible that is, are any more real.

Do I believe the Jesus character in the Gospels existed? No.
I believe it's possible there is a person or people behind the Jesus myth, like there is a person behind the Santa myth. I also believe it's possible Jesus it a totally fictional character. If I had to put money down, I'd bet Jesus is based on a real person.

The Google whose CEO frequents the White House and was touted for a position within the Obama administration? One outcome for the lawsuit in Europe, another in the US. Why do you give cover to Obama? He is wrong on steroids regardless of what the Republican Party is. Obama loves treaties relinquishing our freedoms and soveireignty. That's unconstitutional by the way. Maybe that doesn't matter to you.

What should matter is progressives take away freedoms. If you say you want more of it you should oust these vermin. They now control what at one time was a mostly reasonable Democratic party. Mccarthy was correct. Libertarian, Constitutionalist,,are reasonable viewpoints.

The time for choosing sides may be close. Maybe you will see some crossover from the fairness doctrine.

Come on K, there is plenty of evidence from non-Christian sources of a historical Jesus. The biblical Jesus. That just makes you look silly.

I disagree with the last part of your post as well, but you know that. Of course you are free to do so. For now.

Perhaps you shouldn't stand on the sidelines when the progressives in here spout off. I'm closer to a friend of your freedom then they ever will be. My belief and your disbelief notwithstanding.

How appropriate. Rose posted as I was. Do you really want to be a dishonest loon like Rose? Rose tell K how Obama reduced government.

Do your own homework guys I'm not going to do it for you. Okay, I take that back I will do some if Rose apologies for her lie that Obama reduced government size and spending.

K, I'm going to hang onto the tiny glimmer of hope I have for you. Are you presently an Obama supporter?

Obama is a twit, and Google's corporate staff have been spearheading all efforts to stop his encroaching on the internet.

I still have seen nothing but hearsay, without a body, actual grave, or some real markers, at least something that everyone agrees on and doesn't suffer from serious ambiguity would be nice. But that's the problem when you piece together a story from many other stories, you wind up with no evidence to support it and a ton of "this could be ..." It's just not convincing at all. That's ignoring all the fraudulent claims around the bible's other stories as well, which really hurts the entire case for anything in that book. I simply cannot accept such vague evidence.

Do you fundies get a quarter every time you type "Obama" in a forum?
I have no idea what you are talking about with the "size of government" thing. Must be just another excuse for you to type "Obama".

This seems to terrify you and your logical fallacies. Let's see if you can actually answer this and stop humiliating yourself on front of those who are way smarter than you. Way way way way smarter than you.

See post 67051: You write...,"Wow you love you some special pleading! Well since that I your favorite logical fallacy explain how we even have the concept or notion of god? If he is totally outside the observable how did the notion of there being a god even arise?"(Note: I left in the errors....RF)

My answer: You did ask "how".
I gave you an answer concerning "how".

Your counter is now that you never asked "how".

My answer: You have been proved wrong.

Comment: It is hard to debate with someone when their brain doesn't function well, your grammer is atrocious, and your memory the same. Your rhetoric is excellent. Your logic is average.

Good day.

The average atheist makes much ado about evidence, but he doesn't really care about it one way or another. That much is *evident* in the deadening redundancy of scientific factoids found on atheist forums. He knows God exists, he just refuses to bow down to the Christian version of diety.

This is one of the stupider fundie "arguments". If I did believe in your god, why would I say I didn't?
