LMAO!
Although I'm usually not an unkind or vulgar person, this one woman in my past really got under my skin. She was probably the tightest, stingiest human I've ever met. I finally had enough of her, and said "If your vagina is as tight as your purse, you couldn't get a toothpick in it with a sledgehammer."
Amazingly, she thought I was giving her a compliment!
Then you know exactly the kind of person I`m talking about. "Anal retentive" doesn't quite describe some people.

I imagine she would think it was a compliment. I bet Kimar thinks I complimented him too.
Ha Ha.

I'll wager and push in my whole pile, that you supported Nancy Pelosi's claim that in order to find out what was in the ACA we need to pass it first.
And you find that concept acceptable? You don't for one moment find such a position absolutely insane?
I don't do politics so I have no idea what you're talking about. Not even sure who Nancy Pelosi is.

I don't do politics because I believe they are all dishonest. Always have been and most likely always will be. I accept the dysfunction, the dishonesty, to back room deals, as part of the process. Therefore I pay little or no attention to politics in general.

Saying something can be accomplished in a certain way is in no way advocating that it should be done.

Maybe, the Christians got it right on the God thing. What they didn't know that is there is intelligent life right and God manifested himself in another way than us.
And there is millions of our civilizations among this universe and millions of ways God revealed himslf to them
But see it was none of business to know how he did it. It is beyond our feeble little minds. Us humans think we are terminally unique. Guess what. We are not. We are little specks in the infinite, large cosmos.
Does this help to explain why atheists are such deplorable and hateful people? Or is their Satan mostly responsible? I blame the latter.

Wow, just wow. You were just crowing about how intellectual you are and you come up with this craziness. EM influences? Haha.
Skin crawling is an idiom, idiot. It is not a valid description of the vestigial actions of the autonomic nervous system. Anserina is a vestigial reflex, an antecedent of evolution, back before tiny-dicked Christians had guns to make them feel tougher. The arrector pili muscles contract, you know, like the cardiomyocytes, as a response to fight or flight. Fight or flight, by the way, is the best refutation of this imaginary free will concept you twits came up with to explain bad things happening.

What "ONLY one" evidence would you accept as being "real"?
Something is either real or it's not. The ONLY way to make that determination is through SCIENCE!!! If you know of any other way to make that determination, I would love to hear it.

BTW Einstein, the movement of the scalp has nothing to do with the hair on one's arms, legs, back, and neck. Furthermore, the hair does in fact move. What causes it to move is another story.
What causes the reflexive action in the first place when there is no apparent "empirical evidence" to which an entity would need react in defense?

I didn't make a typo, I was making fun of Mr. HigherIntelligenceLevel, blacklagoon, showing his self-proclaimed higher intelligence is nonexistent.

The fact that I have to explain it to you shows that you're self-proclaimed higher intelligence is also nonexistent.

"that the "Faith" of it's members had vanished."
Incorrect. That for sale sign only means that one particular church building is no longer a "church", and that is ALL it means.
One would need to know each and every person that was a member before the for sale sign was erected, in order to make the claim you just did.
Like I said, most folks who leave one church for whatever reason, usually find another one that "feels" better to them.
You make judgments and conclusions based on facts not in evidence. The ONLY fact you have in evidence is a simple for sale sign.
Grow up and face reality.
Ahhh, you're doing the dance of the desperate Christian, looking for any excuse or cause besides the obvious one. Thats ok, I've dealt with this rationale before. "It couldn't possibly have been because they lost their faith, there MUST be an alternative reason"

Don't you think its possible that these people simply saw the absurdity of accepting a bronze age mentality, of accepting a mythical being? Isn't it possible that they actually read their bible and found this God to be completely immoral and cruel? Maybe the fact that this being murders innocent little babies and destroys fetuses, maybe for some, this was the last straw.

Interesting.
You just described the big bang theory and evolution all in one, with the only difference being how much time was involved in going from dirt to human.
Neither evolution or Big Bang cosmology address abiogenesis.

You are ... at best ... a one tool explorer.
Your logic and reason are as incapable of "discovering" what is, as a Model T would be incapable of driving to Alpha Centauri. And make no mistake, a Model T is a fine automobile ... of it's time.
Your attempt to find what dwells in the spirit world using inadequate and inappropriate tools is akin to emptying Lake Superior with a dinner fork.
The truth is that all those who take up your position and stance are in reality taking up a very lazy position. You pick one tool from a variety of tools available to a human, and use it improperly in a task which it is incapable of performing, and then conclude that what you set out to find, is non-existent.
You intentionally blind fools crack me up. You think you have gone the last mile in a search which you failed to even embark upon.
"To find what dwells in the spirit world" REALLY? You say that like this spirit world is real, and even worse, that "something" dwells there. Please, how do come by this information? What dwells in this spirit world? How do you know this spirit world exists? What evidence do you have for either? Personal experiences, crystal balls, electromagnet devises, ghost detecting devices? I thought I was having a conversation with a sane person, guess I'm wrong!!!

Oh.

You know, spontaneous generation was a FACT for nearly 2000 years.

Then it was proven not to be a FACT.

Aristotle dreamt up spontaneous generation around 350BC. Pasteur proved it wrong around 1850 AD.

That's approximately 2,200 years of science teaching everyone the wrong thing, or as science calls it, "fact".

You demonstrate my point perfectly.
You fools ALWAYS use phrases like "It is an official designation", to try and bolster a lost point and make yourself feel better, but then also retrofit the words "It is when most of the state is at sea level." in a failed attempt to save face. You write and think in fragments ... none of which retain integrity.

BTW I left off 3 feet according to my sources, which are not a coalition with an agenda.

Satan doesn't "cause" anything to happen, you say--there's your technicality, your pedantic "gotcha".
But Satan exists today, in your view, no?
And he has influence on people, no?
And people's morals have declined on account of Satan's influence, no?
I would think that qualifies as "causation."
But you insist on being a pedant.
You do understand, don't you, that pedantry is dishonesty?
"Satan causes things to happen"
"Satan influences people"

Oh it's a fact. Ok.

"So with animals, some spring from parent animals according to their kind, whilst others grow spontaneously and not from kindred stock; and of these instances of spontaneous generation some come from putrefying earth or vegetable matter, as is the case with a number of insects, while others are spontaneously generated in the inside of animals out of the secretions of their several organs."

That was fact for 2,200 years.

Even though it was never fact.

Interesting.
