Ya, really. Of course the south of France has the advantage of weather over England, but culturally I click with the UK more. Can't have everything. But IMHO I prefer either over living in the US. Not that the US is the worst place to live, especially not California. Well, except maybe for central CA and the hideous Inland Empire. ;)
Don't lookit me. I'm planning to move back to Western Ireland in the next 12 months.

If that isn't a standard, then you will have to clearly define what you mean by moral standard and how it is acquired by an individual.
Morals evolve to protect the species. Religion is out of fear of the unknown.

Nevertheless [the sentence put upon women of pain in motherhood does not hinder their souls’ salvation, and] they will be saved [eternally] if they continue in faith and love and holiness with self-control,[saved indeed][a]through the Childbearing or by the birth of the divine Child.

That is awesome (about England, Wales, and Scotland). I'm married to a Brit, and we plan to move back to the UK at some point and then on to France. I will happily trade my US passport for a UK one.

We will always have the Brits to thank for our National Anthem.

"God" and its variants is the Germanic word for a deity. Wodan is the Angla-Saxon (Germanic) Head God.
Therefore proves that "God" is Wodan.
You believe in Wodan. End of story.

Don’t know much about atheists do you
Here I suggest you look up the definition here
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/atheis...
or here
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ath...
Please note, there is no god to reject
Please note, The choice is yours, you can do what you want with your carnal desires and if that included masturbating to the babble then so be it
Please note, Again the choice is yours, if your think your god did not want you to advance yourself in this world then you have a serious problems but it does explain why godbots resent advancement.
Please note, what hell to reject? Several babbles do not even mention hell, particularly the older (more original) ones. It is a fairly modern christian scare tactic because that cannot get their “followers” by normal means of discussion
..okay ...you actually went out of your way ..to school me ...thank-you ..smile emoticon ...

I don't say....." AmeriKKKa ...should try and reconsider its foreign policy ..."

and , then pretend ...oh , that's not an attack....I had , a public education ...I just don't spell that good ...

I'm , just surprised ...God and the Bible ; are mere myth .......and , yet you feel you have to spell it ....AmeriKKKa ...( buybull..babble )...obviously , you are lashing out .....at , a mere myth ..?!?

sorry , I just don't buy it ....

Which atheist meeting did you learn this lie from?
None, I learned that when I still went to church, certainly the latter part is WRITTEN in the babble but feel free to ignore it, it’s what godbots are good at, ignoring the bits if babble that don’t agree with their wet dreams.

As for the god bit try any academic paper on the origins of the word god, hell even most dictionaries will give you the basics. Or if you find actual research to painful try googling “origins of the word god”, I am almost sure you are capable of that.

You see it’s called truth. That’s real truth which is factual, not christian “Truth” that is interpreted to mean, it sounds like I should believe it so it must be true.

And the way you too can learn real truth, real facts is by educating yourself

Upset? Your wet dreams are staining you trousers

I was responding to a post, a fact that seems to have zoomed right across you field of intellect without making any impression

Who give a damn what you got yourself into, you can only blame yourself unless of course you want to blame your god.

That's sounds idiotic, it says he repaired a previous mutilation thereby committed FGM .
Sounds like he got in trouble for doing cosmetic repair surgery.
