Does this remind you of anyone?
Are those circular figures infinite in length?

Took a lot of ink to draw them, if so.

I've never said that infinity exists in the material world. That is one of Buck's straw men.
I have always maintained that infinity is a mathematical concept.
Buck has disputed what that concept is. He has been very wrong. As in...

The level of confidence about something maybe very high, so high that some people consider it indisputable fact, but the truth is nothing is guaranteed 100%, and while the LUCA has not been discovered as we know it . There are plenty of MRCA's in the animal kingdom that show common descent to be true.
You lost me with the LUCA, don't even bring up a MRCA...

How about to keep him conscious and torture him for eternity for his beliefs? Are there justifiable reasons to do that?

First, Buck didn't make any argument about the concept of infinity. All he did was use his made-up silly name for some pipe dream of his. There is nothing there to rebut.
Second, Buck doesn't even begin to understand infinity. I suspect that you don't either, since you are arguing in his favor.
Here is a simple (and somewhat simplistic since it is aimed at the math illiterate) discussion of infinity...

Yup, latrines. Because the localities didn't have any sanitation facilities at all. So, yes, latrines are very important to villages that have been suffering from disease due to open wastes.
You don't have much of an imagination, do you. Incapable of seeing what poor sanitation can wreak. And don't really care, apparently.
While these Christian groups build churches...that aren't needed and don't help anyone.
After the 2010 quake, the Mormon church started planting and donating 400,000 shade and fruit trees.

Adventists spent $3.6 million.

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee spent $5.4 million.

The Red Cross spent $245 million.

The Catholic Medical Mission Board spent $1.4 million.

Catholic Relief Services spent $24 million.

Church World Service spent.$2.2 million.

Habitat for Humanity spent $13 million.

Islamic Relief USA spent $1.7 million.

The list goes on and for religious organizations that donated to Haiti.

And you brag about atheists installing some shit houses.

Oh, I forgot one. Obama's Brother's Brother Foundation spent $366,000.

LOL

Nice dodge, Flipper, but my personal experience wasn't the basis of my response. I cited nationwide numbers, easily confirmed by anyone {SNIP}
It isn't confirmed by anyone, even you.

You claim that churches spend only 3% of their donations to charity.

Easily confirm it.

Atheism provides no direction. Do you understand what that means to your argument?
Atheism gives plenty if direction. Look at how it dictates to people like IANS that want to see "the church" diminish and people like you that agree with Harris that people should be killed for a belief.
Who said it was Minority Report?
If you know what someone believes, if they believe you deserve to die, that is a relevant and actionable piece of information, if they're pointing a gun at you.


You're acting like it's Minority Report, maybe you think you're a pre-cog.

Pointing at gun at you is an action, not a belief.

I don't have the rules of engagement handy, but I'm pretty sure the only requirement that needs to be met is identifying a person as Al Qaeda. They don't get a trial or inquiry.

I'll point out your dichotomous nature any time it's relevant.
So you disagree with capital punishment, stand your ground laws, and killing in defense of property?
I don't even know what dichotomous means, so.

The only vile opinion here is your own. Do you have any interest in what Harris was actually saying?
http://atheistethicist.blogspot.com/2007/05/m...
Read his book or watch one his videos concerning the book, or just read the link above.
If you cannot move forward in a productive way, I'm going to consider you to be unworthy of my attention.
Oh, I see.

Quoting Harris saying "[S]ome propositions are so dangerous that it may even be ethical to kill people for believing in them." is actually misquoting him. But quoting "bash their heads against the rocks" is quoting the Bible properly.

You Topix Atheists! never cease to amaze me with your excuses.
