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!
She sounds hot.

You're not anonymous. Topix is tracking your presence. Your lies are documented.

I still want to know which construction equipment sales company operates on Easter Sunday. You never know when you need a backhoe.

Yes, and that was his error. IANS said that the Bible was written for the illiterate, which makes absolutely no sense.
What you say is correct, that the ministers, priests or whoever were the ones reading to Bible to the illiterate, and THAT's who the Bible was originally written for.
To say a book was written for those who can't read or write is just as dumb as having braille on our ATM machines. Maybe IANS had a part in that...
You're functionally illiterate and you believe it. Case closed.

Does the hair "smell"? Or "see".
No, it is attuned to EM influences. Sensors on full alert and shields up.
Why?
The hair isn't moving, moron, the scalp is.

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.

Why does your heart beat? Angels, I tell ya! No, wait, magnets. Yeah, magnets.

Seek help, Trog.

“Difference of opinion is advantageous in religion. The several sects perform the office of a Censor morum over each other. Is uniformity attainable? Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth. Let us reflect that it is inhabited by a thousand millions of people. That these profess probably a thousand different systems of religion. That ours is but one of that thousand. That if there be but one right, and ours that one, we should wish to see the 999 wandering sects gathered into the fold of truth. But against such a majority we cannot effect this by force. Reason and persuasion are the only practicable instruments. To make way for these, free enquiry must be indulged; and how can we wish others to indulge it while we refuse it ourselves?”

&#8213; Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia

“I have examined all the known superstitions of the world, and I do not find in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth.”

Oh.
Then why am I happy?
“Only a fool can be happy. For happiness consists of two contradictory elements: contentment and pleasure. Enjoy pleasure and you have no contentment; be content and you have no pleasure. For this reason happiness is conceivable only for those who enjoy themselves without thinking that they will always want more and thus be discontented, or for those who are content without thinking that they have no pleasure. Whoever reflects can never be happy, unless he is a fanatic and thus blinded…thus exercising control over his intelligence with his feelings, instead of the other way round”

You do know that such a belief is not only totally insane, it's completely unsupported by any known data. This makes it a belief as foolish as any Dark Age superstition.
Are you really that stupid that you find any part of this statement as being real?
Clarifying what someone said, is by no means an approval or "acceptance" of what was said. It is simply a clarification.
Do you find it acceptable that all living things die? Do you not find for one moment that fact to be absolutely insane?
Grow up.

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?
