So where did your god come from?
Oh look, you just destroyed your own argument.

I don't know how life began and I choose to tell the truth about it.
It's not too difficult to say "I don't know" to things you don't know, instead of making things up where magic and fairy tales are involved.

I do not give a sh7t what you think, GODBOT.

You spew hate, you spew filth-- literally every word you post, is from the deepest hate in your mind.

It shows.

If you REALLY WANT TO STOP ABORTIONS?

Then.... START HANDING OUT FREE CONDOMS.

Duuuuh!

But YOU? YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE.

You won't do that, will you?

More hate-spew and vile filth out of the mouth of a hatecultist.

What else?

I see you mention your God of the Gaps-- in that your god is so puny he has to HIDE IN THE GAPS OF KNOWLEDGE.

Because as KNOWLEDGE INCREASE?

Your god .... runs and hides in ever-decreasing gaps....!

Funny!

I never actually thought about it that way.
Mind if I paraphrase you sometime?

Please do-- the idea of "god of the gaps" is an old one.

It arose about the same time as christian apologetics did-- as these would-be philosophers attempted to explain away the more ugly parts of the bible?

And to also attempt to accommodate ever more successful scientific discovery?

They had to push their god out of the primary creator role, into a lessor one of "enabling evolution" (for example) or "prime mover of the big bang" for another.

It's really kinda sad, when you think of it dispassionately: their god is getting smaller and smaller, as the gaps in knowledge shrink.

In order to determine that Frankenstein was created by the doc, we have to see the creation in process or see some proof of it. Wew have neither option in the case of your god.

Not religious. I do find that religion served the public for a means of law and order long before the Mental Health Industry appeared with its diagnoses of the mentally ill and divided the societies.

It is noted that pharmaceutical mind drugs have caused more death and violence in any society then all the wars (including religious wars) in the world.

"Pharmaceutical mind drugs"?
"More death then [sic] all the wars in the world"?

Where do you crazy, uninformed, conspiracy theorist come from?
Is there some kind of school somewhere where they teach you the opposite of facts?

Your first sentence is a lie, simply because your religion has no god, does not change that you are a religious nut. Your religion goes by a different name, we call it the Conspiracy Theory.

Sure, sure-- like the Spanish Inquisition? Or the ritual burning of witches? Or how about the bible-supported slavery of humans? Arranged marriages? Persecution of the gays?

I fail to see how religion was helpful in these, historical situations.

It is noted that you are making a rather idiotic claim, without a single FACT to it back up.

What was left of your already low credibility is now in the toilet...
