I wonder what our resident genius will make of the fact almost all structures now have sheetrock in them.
Sheetrock is taking over the world?

Or as Catcher calls it; "sheet wall".

The compulsive badmouthing of the roots of your civilization and believers in the root religion of such, who happen to be in the vast majority, is not based on reason, rationality, or education. It is based upon a psychosis.
You are a product of that which you now condemn in such a mad dog manner. You launched yourself out into the wild blue yonder of delusion.
It's those darned EM forces at work, don't you think?

Or something like that.

It comes down to how soon you want the evidence. If you want the evidence now then take the ride. But it's a one way ride. My good Doctor, you are going to take the ride sooner or later.
Bullshit piled on top of more bullshit never makes it true. There is ONLY one kind of evidence, only one, and that evidence ONLY exists in reality as part of the naturalistic realm. Now if you want to say there is another source were evidence can be found its on YOU to demonstrate the validity of this "other" source.

Be prepared to supply something other than just your delusional episodes, or your psychotic personal experiences.

So I'm waiting, show me this alternative reality where I can discover evidence for souls!!!! Ready........Set..........GO!! !

So Doc, if you see a house for sale does that mean every house in America is for sale?
Or if you see a house being repo'd does that mean every house in America is going on the auction block?
Or if a school is shutdown does that mean every school is going out of business?
Of course not, WTF kind of question is that?

It simply shows that this one particular Church has failed, that the "Faith" of it's members had vanished. One small victory for skepticism. And seeing TWO of these failed churches seems to suggest a trend, at least in that particular region.

You Topix Atheists! sure know how to spin a fanciful tale.
You know what a Topic Atheist! just told me? He said the Bible was written for the illiterate.
Yeah, that's right. A book that is completely text was written for those who can't read it.
Amazing...
That's right, only the ministers, priests, whatever religious leader got to read to his crowd, what ever part of the book he wishes to, almost like now. Most people never open their bible until they are in church and reading along with the preacher. They may as well be illiterate.
The preacher chooses the subject, reads and then tells everybody what he just read meant.
Been that way since the beginning of the religion. The book is sacred to the illiterate, they trust what the minister says and what the meaning is.

Since it is a known fact that Atheists display greater intelligence levels than Theists, rational thought, reason, logic, and skepticism, are very desirable traits possessed by all true Atheist's, so there is no oxymoron here, the mistake is all yours. He smiles down at the delusional child!!
The only churches shrinking are the liberal ones that excuse immorality and desecrate marriage.

As to intelligence levels, I've been consistently noting 'rational atheist' oxymorons like you...

My good Doctor, we are all going to take the last ride across the river Jordan. I would love for you to join those of us who are going onto a much better place but as much as I would love to save you, I can't.

Why does the hair stand up on end and your skin crawls when you get "spooked"?

Does the hair "smell"? Or "see".

No, it is attuned to EM influences. Sensors on full alert and shields up.

Why?

I don't own a TV so I have never seen Cosmos, obviously you have never watched it, or if you did you didn't understand anything that was presented.

So let me get this straight, just so there is NO confusion, are you saying that the 5 elements I posted are NOT the most common ingredients in the universe? Are you also saying that these 5 ingredients are NOT the major components of Stars? And that these 5 ingredients DO NOT the prime ingredients of our bodies?

Or are you so uneducated that you simply have no idea what I'm talking about? I'll place my bet on that!!!!
