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

Please explain your rating of sin.
I know of only one Sin God rates worse then all other. I have never seen a rating system for any other sin.

Bloodletting survived for thousands of years precisely because it produced positive results. If a majority of those treated with bloodletting died, its practictioners would have been out of business very quickly.
Bullsh7t.

The reason people lived, was because people tend to do that.

Bloodletting was just another True Believerô mumbo-jumbo.

I mean the same history you use to discredit Christianity, Goober.
Christianity discredits itself, just by trying to claim the BuyBull is "god's word".

That claim? That single claim? Is sufficient to prove "christianity" is a complete fraud.

Even though there are 100's of additional reasons showing christianity is fraud, that one claim is enough.

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost three years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Three years without an example of evidence that meets their criteria for evidence. These are angry agenda driven folks that don't give a damn about the evidence.
If you want to subject yourself to this farce by all means see for yourself. Antitheists you could also just cut and paste one of the 65,160 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True
science that is repeatable and observable.
Here you go-- once again, I see you are completely stumped.

"It wasn't until well into the 19th century that people began to question the value of bloodletting. Scientists such as Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, and Robert Koch showed that germs, not humors, were responsible for disease. Furthermore, medical statisticians tracking case histories began to collect evidence that bloodletting was not effective. Eventually the practice died, although it continued in some parts of rural America into the 1920s."

You honestly think blood letting and phlebotomy are the same thing?

No way did you have a high school level education, there is just no way.

Get your google on! Bloodletting (now called phlebotomy) is not just for hemochromatosis, doctors and researchers are examining phlebotomy as an aid in combating heart disease, high blood pressure, and pulmonary edema. The lesson for medical science is a simple one, there is much more that the scientific community doesn't understand than there is that it does understand.

Ummm, Bob I promised you just a few pages back I would leave if your links had one example of evidence in this arena that meets your own criteria. Repeated nothing year after year and then linking same is bizarre behavior. The type of behavior I would expect from a forum about nothing.
Soon Rose will chime in with her disbelief. This is your evidence free forum about nothing. I'm comfortable exposing it. I'm also waiting for one of you bigots to present an accountable position vs mine. Of course you don't have anything but tangents against a God you don't believe in.

How do atheists decide which is most or least likely: always was, prime mover, something from nothing? Atheists are so easily exposed.

Baloney. Phlebotomy is the preferred treatment of choice for hemochromatosis patients today.

A Canadian physiologist, Norman Kasting, recently discovered that bleeding animals induces the release of the hormone vasopressin, which reduces fevers and kicks the immune system into high gear. Moreover, leeches are used in modern medicine because they work. Leeches serve as extremely effective artificial veins after replantation of an amputated body part by drawing off the excess blood or the congested blood, until the person can actually grow back small, venous capillaries.

Why did your god list his jealousies and insecurities first? that is more important than not killing each other?

the answer is humans made up your god, that is why he has human traits...

so why do you have other gods as the days of the week?

Do you know what blood letting is? Are you that stupid to think that careful needle drawing up blood in a sterile manner with a gloved technician and a band aid is the same as a holy man talking in tongues and slicing people with the same unwashed knife he sliced a dozen people before them?

Same thing?

Wow your IQ keeps dropping. No way have you earned a high school level education.

You make a distinction where none exists, numbskull. Bloodletting is bloodletting whether by sterile means or otherwise.

One works the other does not. one has scientific backing to it, the other was superstitious nonsense.

What works better is not the issue. The fact is modern medicine now uses an ancient practice once discredited by science as voodooism.
