You'll have to deal with that some day.
And no, E=MC2 has nothing to do with God.

Yes, yes, yes.... You've regurgitated this copy/pasted drivel 5 or 6 times.

Post it a thousand times, it's still wrong.
The actions of an atheist? Something you will need to deal with when you grow up, perhaps when you are able to get a stiffy.
Actions? Did I say anything about actions?! If you want, we can talk about Stalin's atheist actions all you want.

I doubt you want to be embarrassed with it, though...
Honey we can all say words, jeez, even you do it
I say words.

Very astute.
Opinion, the very fact that energy cannot be infinite at the same time as you exist disproved the omnipotent aspect of your god.
Maybe so, maybe not. That's the theory, not a fact. Einstein has been proven wrong before, such as his “cosmological constant” stating that the universe is static or when CERN scientists discovered a neutrino moving faster than light. He may be your god, but he's not always right.

Either way, E=MC2 can't be connected with God. His type of power is unknown, even to the great ChristineMC2.

Because it is hearsay and opinion published in a publicly editable site, nothing more. Go to the top of a wikipedia page and click the view history link. This will give you some indication of the number of unattributed anonymous edits made to the page. In the case of the link you copied from it has been over 250 in the last 12 months.

That will never be seen as a valid source.

He was a secular minded religious opportunist. He did not use atheism to gain control, but religious principles that were modified to fit his own method of revolution.

Honey, just because you can’t imagine it does not make it so. There is a lot you can’t imagine. Here is a hint, it depends a great deal on how you view that religion, whether you prioritise it against - say the state or whether you consider the state more important than mythology.

Yes, yes and I will keep repeating it every time you ignore it

Actions, yes, killed millions of people, I can name one god who is said to be able to beat that - yours. Actions, yes, rebuilt the church, it’s institutions and priesthood after removing the corruption and egotism that infested the pre revolutionary church.

The fact is that the matter/energy equivalence formula has not been proven wrong and the fact that it aids your way of life in thousands of ways each and every day may be quite factual.

As for the CERN scientist “discovered” faster than light neutrinos, it seems that you have not done you research, That was proved to be an instrument error.

Either way the E of E=MC^2 is energy, and omnipotence is defined as infinite power – power is energy – end of story.

Alright, if you insist.

secular
denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis.

not subject to or bound by religious rule;

not belonging to or living in a monastic or other order.

ASTRONOMY
of or denoting slow changes in the motion of the sun or planets.

ECONOMICS
(of a fluctuation or trend) occurring or persisting over an indefinitely long period.

occurring once every century or similarly long period

not religious

not bound by vows or rules

not belonging to a religious order or congregation

Now answer the damn question. How can one be a "secular religious" person?

I'm a theist and have said plenty of times I could be wrong about my religion. I simply believe I am not

And I know each person tends to have some variations in exactly how atheist is defined so I will ask instead of assume. If you understand you could be wrong, does that include that you could be wrong about how you view dirties and God does exist?

I was referring to that KiHorsesAss, who is too busy attacking everyone to notice I mentioned a young girl molested by a pedophile murderer, protected by another pastor. But it's all about YOU, self-centred little prat. As for the rest of your tantrum, save it to run crying to Mummy. Get her to change your nappy while you're at it.
Here's the article again. Ignore it to fixate on yourself again I bet, fundie f**kwit.

LOL

That was quite the meltdown!

And why would you post me a link about a priest covering it up when I not only said it happens, that I want anybody involved in coverups to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law (and have said many times I want them to be charged as accessories after the fact as it would mean a harsh penalty compared to say obstruction which can only be criminal if it involves hindering an actual ongoing police investigation), and said I want to see ALL abuse in the church exposed?

What was your point?

You really are retarded

You're an idiot. As historians know, Stalin was making temporary use of the church. Same as Hitler did.

You have no argument. Stalin was an atheist, and everyone knows it.
