I have several parrots, including an African grey, which I have owned since the day she hatched. That's 18 years ago.
She has at least a 150-word vocabulary, and puts together some sentences (on her own, not mimicry) that constantly surprise the heck out of us. She somewhat runs the house, including the other parrots and dogs as well. Sometimes she's too mischievous......
Several years ago, a friend stopped in to visit and brought her dog. After a brief visit in the living room, everyone headed to the kitchen, forgetting the animals for the moment. After a couple of minutes, there was the loudest screaming imaginable, the grey shrieking "(my name), help, please help!. Now! C'mon!" The dog had jumped on the sofa and was trying to get to her.
There's also a double yellow-headed Amazon female, 45 years old, does some great operatic bits in addition to a pretty well established vocabulary.
Both birds have excellent diction and distinctly clear speech.
I think that humans underestimate the sentience of our fellow life forms on this planet.

Thank you for beign honest and admitting that the Bible was written by men.
As for teh other things you think "God" can or cannot do, well, andet - you sort of failed here with the honesty.
The fact is - you don't know what "God" can or cannot do. So please do speak for him.
Please post links to sources or events that shows "God helps", or "God heals" or "God gives guidance". Please ensure that these sources have verifiable evidence that proves these actions occurred. Otherwise it is just an opinion by yet another man.
Thanks!
LOL! see what i'm talking about ande1987?! this is the kind of company you're in when you oppose God/His Word!

They weren't visited by God and they were less educated than a modern 8th grade student.

The problem with your religion is that we now have the information available to prov it is all bullsh!t.

You need to sell your lies to third world uneducated people who still believe in magic. The rest of the world is on to your lies.

Internet Troll

I believe that most trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives through those they see as strong and successful.

Disrupting a stable newsgroup gives the illusion of power, just as for a few, stalking a strong person allows them to think they are strong, too.

For trolls, any response is 'recognition'; they are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration;
their ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response

How to recognize trolls

Missing The Point - Trolls rarely answer a direct question - they cannot, if asked to justify their twaddle - so they develop a fine line in missing the point.

Trolls are usually sad, lonely folk, with few social skills; they rarely make what most people would consider intelligent conversation.

However, they frequently have an obsession with their IQ and feel the need to tell everyone.

Trolls don't have friends. On the internet, because they interact with human beings, they can convince themselves that they are important, the centre of the universe - that, to them, is better than any friendship.

If he's a teen (many are), then he lives in his bedroom, trolling, playing computer games with 'friends'(who he doesn't know at all), and joining roleplay sites, where - of course - he is a hero, or a powerful villain, who is respected in an inverse ratio to the respect he feels for himself.

If he's an adult, then he has serious social issues. He may work, where people think he's a weirdo, and avoid him, he may sponge off his parents or be 'looking for work', which means he blames everyone for his problems. Except himself.

Almost every troll is male; I don't know why this is.

The troll has few social skills, and most have never had a girlfriend, many never will.

There's a clear pattern among trolls; they are more likely to ignore posts known to be from women.
And when they do respond to women, they are much more likely to be brief, abusive, condescending and patronising.

This is almost certainly more due to fear than misogyny - they just don't know any women. Except Mom. But their attitude rather reduces their chances of reproducing, which is probably a good thing.

moral of story - why are you so interested in having a corrupt and narcissisitc communist/socialist leader like the north koreans instead of having the Perfect Lord Jesus Christ who loved us and gave Himself for us???
Gave himself to us? REALLY, or are you just being stupid? According to Christian doctrine Jesus/God/ the holy spirit make up the holy trinity. The three being one yet somehow separate.(Yeah I know, complete and utter bullshit) But thats what they say. Sooooooo..........God became Jesus thereby sacrificing himself, to himself, knowing full well that he could never really die. God is all knowing, all powerful, or so you dumbasses say, so he KNEW in advance that he could never die, WTF kind of sacrifice is that? Christians would have you believe "God so loved us he sacrifices his only son for our sins." What a crock. He died momentarily, got up after a few days and continued to be a God, thats no sacrifice. Besides it's incredibly IMMORAL to let someone absolve another for their wrong doings.

I know a real sacrifice, I had a friend who sacrificed his life so that myself and other could live. He REALLY died, he didn't rise from the dead and continue his existence, his was a REAL sacrifice. You darken the meaning of sacrifice with this Jesus bullshit, anyone that does so should be told how shameful it is. Shame on you for accepting this immoral crap.

A new review of 63 scientific studies stretching back over decades has concluded that religious people are less intelligent than non-believers.
A piece of University of Rochester analysis, led by Professor Miron Zuckerman, found “a reliable negative relation between intelligence and religiosity” in 53 out of 63 studies.
According to the study entitled,'The Relation Between Intelligence and Religiosity:

No one was"Visited" by God, what an assclown. You can't even define what God is. You have NO information that is demonstrable that God has done anything let alone "visit" someone. Did they have tea and crumpets, catch up on the hot babes of the day? Talk about not buy'n the BS you are trying to sell, too funny!!!!

You are lying again.

Why do you need to lie?

What place does a liar like you have in judging others? You have no credibility. You are simply an idiot with a foul mouth.

A typical 'rational atheist' oxymoron.

No, I'm not lying, thats what the Aliens told me. You believe in Aliens right? You said the made predictions in the bible. One of the things they predicted was that God would murder many innocent babies. Why is this so hard for you to believe?

You're right, I lied about them liking pistachio ice cream, sorry!!
