Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

And what was this so called city called fatass? Was it just called the city? Lol!
Buck Crick wrote:
<quoted text>No, the city did exist.

You would be accurate to say it existed by a different name.

Saying it did not exist carries a different connotation, as if the city was made up.

You know that. That's why you did it - to deceive.

I have no idea of the connection but...Mr `Crick` is living vicariously through the eyes of the man in the following video, I think perhaps they were lovers once.

You're a violent offender who was caged like an animal because you were not allowed to live in civilized society.

Not much has changed...has it buck? Still a liar with no proof of god and a weasel when it comes to backing up any thing you have to say.

What can we expect from a person that denies evolution?

This is the translation of Buddha Gautama's prophecy regarding the coming of Maitreya [the compassionate one] per "The Gospel of Buddha" by Carus PP.217-8:

"Ananda "said to the Blessed One:'Who shall teach us when thou art gone?"'

And the Blessed One replied:'I am not the first Buddha who came upon the earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time anothr Buddha will arise in the world, a holy one, a supremely enlightened one, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals. He will reveal to you the same eternal truths which I have taught you. He will preach his religion, glorious in its origin, glorious at the climax, and, glorious at the goal. He will proclaim a religious life, wholly perfect a pure, such as I now proclaim. His disciples will number many thousand, while mine number many hundred.'

Ananda said:'How shall we know him?'

The Blessed One replied:'He will be known as Maitreya...' "

Sartre was smarter than all of us, eventually he would not be drawn on the subject of god, he considered it beneath him, like talking at length about used q-tips.
Consider the following passage, from Jean-Paul Sartre's 1960 existentialist blockbuster "The Critique of Dialectical Reason":

Quote:

"But it should be noted that this regulatory totalisation realises my immanence in the group in the quasi-transcendence of the totalising third party; for the latter, as the creator of objectives or organiser of means, stands in a tense and contradictory relation of transcendence-immanence, so that my integration, though real in the here and now which define me, remains somewhere incomplete, in the here and now which characterise the regulatory third party. We see here the re-emergence of an element of alterity proper to the statute of the group, but which here is still formal: the third party is certainly the same, the praxis is certainly common everywhere; but a shifting dislocation makes it totalising when I am the totalised means of the group, and conversely."

There are a number of valid responses to these arguments. One might be: They sure don't make public intellectuals like they used to. Another might be: I'm not sure Sartre's arguments constitute more than a footnote to his work in "L'être et le Néant." A third might be: What was he on?

It's a good question. When he wrote the "Critique," Sartre, a lifelong caffeine fiend and serious drinker, was also frying his brains on corydrane, a form of amphetamine mixed with, of all things, aspirin. The philosopher was using corydrane on a daily basis, first to cut through the fug of the barbiturates he was taking to help him sleep—and he was having trouble sleeping not least because of all the corydrane he was putting away—but also to keep him at his desk, churning out the "Critique." "To put it briefly," he told Simone de Beauvoir some time later, "in philosophy, writing consisted of analysing my ideas; and a tube of corydrane meant 'these ideas will be analysed in the next two days.' " Or, as the Ramones used to put it, Gabba Gabba Hey.

We hear a lot these days about drug abuse, but there is also such a thing as drug use—a utilitarian attitude to our body chemistry in which drugs are simply aids to productivity. That's how Sartre treated them, and Marcus Boon argues that "several of Sartre's works show the influence of speed," including "The Idiot of the Family," his incomplete and close to definitively unreadable five-volume study of Flaubert, and "Saint Genet," which, Boon relates, "began as a 50-page preface to Genet's writings, and ended up an 800-page book." Sartre was therefore a recognizable type of speed freak, the type dedicated to obsessive, unfinishable, and, to the neutral observer, pointless toil—the sort who, several hours after taking the drug, can usually be found sitting on the floor, grinding his teeth and alphabetizing his CDs by the name of the sound engineer.

http://www.thephora.net/forum/showthread.php...

I read that Sartre liked shrooms too and that he would talk to his delusions--little crabs that crawled on his legs and slept on his bed--and that he missed his dear little friends when his delusions stopped.

Oh yeah, that Sartre was sooooooooooo smart......

Bwaaaaahahahahahahahahahahahah ahahahaha

Wow! Lmfao! That is hilarious!

I figured Buck saw that guy give a speech at his church and now tries to emulate him. Sadly I think ultra Christian Joe King is a liar as well. I went to some Bengals pages and the only Joe King they ever had was a 6'2" black dude.

I guess Buck got mixed up between Joe saying he was a Bengal vs a Steeler. Oh and Joe in 2009 says his son is 11 Buck said his son is now 17.
Guess ole fatass messed up again :))

Thanks so much for the video!
