Ahh I get it, you think dressing up as a schoolgirl is fine but not dressing up as an alter boy?
But you are correct, priests butt fooking alter boys is pretty disgusting even by high standards of disgusting set by some priests. Of course it happens though so you can’t hide behind your babble and blame topix atheist on this one
Ta, Christine. I'm a firm believer that it's much better to laugh than cry, even if it is rather black humour.

And you promote his cause, you have promoted his cause here on topix, perhaps you didn’t realise he was atheist back then. So strange how you didn’t object to his stance on screwing little chidden but you do object to his lack of religious belief.
Interestingly, the filthy scumbag Brett Peter Cowan was a Xian. Or he dabbled with it when he lived on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, just before committing rape and murder on the 13 year old Daniel Morcombe.

<quoted text> You are just like the abuser. Unpredictable. Everyone walks around the house on eggshells hoping to not offend the abuser who can be gentile and likable for the most part but then go off at the drop of a hat over any perceived slight or no slight at all. You are enemy centered and subject to severe mood swings just like the abuser and your posts reflect that. Indirectly blaming Christianity for 9/11, you really show your true colors and I believe you believe the poison you spew. At best it is a bimbo eruption and at worst well it is just venom. Thanks for revealing your true colors and I have been around long enough to remember the harassment heaped upon that Christian woman a while back. You folks were like a pack of rabid dogs to her as I recall. If there is any justice you will get yours. Whatever she was she did not deserve the abuse she received here. So don't go getting so sanctimonious now about abusers. Just go look in the mirror.

.. boy, oh boy, oh boy, the Christian men on this thread are really in a tether ..
.. tremendous change has occurred in western societies. Expecting women to adhere to ancient religious and moral codes that demean their gender will only make them reject all Abrahamic religions. Don't you get that ??..
.. you probably don't endorse female genital mutilation or sanctioned rape but some cultures do. It is for these women, the females living in countries like Afghanistan or Uganda, that I weep ..
.. in an effort to make this about me instead of women, you utilize character assassination. Do you feel so threatened by my views that you seek revenge and think, "If there is any justice you will get yours". What's that all about? Are you offended by my critique of religion or does it threaten your perceived superior position ??..
Waris Dirie's autobiography was upsetting enough, on that score.

That was Sol Invictus (the Unconquerable Sun). Dec 25 was also the birthday of the god Mithras, popular with the Roman legions.

I hope you realize that dictionaries just reflect usage, especially when you spew endless dictionary definitions for atheism. The term pharaoh is used to describe any cult of personality despot. Pharaohs are non-supernatural deities, but deities nonetheless. Just like your Sky Muffin, they command worship and acquiescence above all else. Dear Leader, indeed.
I suppose the meaning of tyrant comes from the OT stories. In fact, some of the real Pharoahs were not so dictatorial - by ancient standards anyway.

We have this statement from John West, Discovery Institute vice president concerning a course at Ball State University...

Quote

We determined through public documents one science class is covering intelligent design in order to bash it. If they allow that, it’s tantamount to state endorsement of an anti-religious view.

End quote

Well, there you have it. The Discovery Institute itself admitting that Intelligent Design is religion.

Actually it's amazing what the reason is the beaver has to construct a dam.
But it's a conscious effort so it does require a degree of forethought.
The beaver is by no means a highly intelligent animal but the building of dams is dependent on location. With that in consideration the instinct may not to be building dams at all, but something else.
Yes, but not in the way Rancid Redneck said.

He stated specifically, that beaver dams were **designed**, implying his idiotic god had something to do with it (and them).

Oh?
Reduce the complexity of a mousetrap, what do you have?
A spring--- quite useful for many things besides a mousetrap. A clothes pin, or a hinge on a screen door.

A wire bail. Useful as a handle for, say, a bucket (same principle, different size)

A small flat board-- many uses for this: A doorstop, a shingle, a paddle, a step, a...

The trigger mechanism? I cannot think (right away) of a use for that, but I bet there is somewhere.

In short?

I can easily deconstruct your mousetrap into smaller, still-useful pieces.

I can even take it to the raw materials, without form--**STILL** useful. A tree, some iron ore... the uses are endless, here.

You **ARE** some special kind of stupid.
