<quoted text> Ive been explaining in some detail, why it is impossible to reach the infinities that exist. Your explanation is saying infinity does not exist, and you cannot reach infinity.
My explanation is telling you in reality , the infinity exists and that is the reason you cannot reach it.
Explanatory power weighs the scale to bottoming out when I tell you.
While yours explains nothing but your belief it is impossible.
Come big or stay at home micro brain.
You are saying it cannot be reached but the event horizon reaches it.

Got it.

You accept self-contradiction.

Got it.

You are happily wrong and stupid.

Got it.

And, since the infant in question does not understand, let alone believe, in any kind of God at all, it is an atheist -- a being without religious.
Atheism is not defined in relation to religion - not even with the liberal diluted sense of the term.

It is defined in relation to gods or deities.

It is the belief that none exists.

By your own analysis, an infant cannot be an atheist since, as you say, it knows nothing about deities, so far as we know, so it cannot adopt the proposition of atheism - that such deities do not exist.

You are an idiot and a liar.

Why are so many atheists idiots and liars?

Yes there are lots of things in the distance Buck, China, Venus, Andromeda, The Crab Nebula.
How many of those have you been to?

Yes it means to catch up the distance is infinite , because limp brains and second string Alabama rejects can't puzzle out infinity is not a abstract concept , but a reality of time coordinates.
Second string?

I started 3 years. I was the first Alabama offensive lineman to start as a freshman, and was signed by the Cincinnatti Bengals. I would have started 4 years if I hadn't been kicked off the team.

Your assertions here as as accurate as your assertions about infinity.

Plus, you are a liar.

There are no atheists left on this thread who can debate.

Just idiots and liars.

I'm getting bored.

Does anyone know of a thread where there are intelligent atheists?

Let me know.

You are an idiot.

Actually, I don't believe that you are religious in any way. I think you are just here to fuck with people.
I was really remarking on how many christians now claim that they are not religious, they have a personal relationship with jesus and that is not a religion. LOL! Obviously, the term ,"religion", has been dirtied enough and they are trying to separate themselves from it. Much like your silly argument about what Atheism really means. Some argue that I have faith, just like they do, since I have faith that my wife will come home after work each day, or that I have faith that the Sun will "rise" in the morning.
I don't really care what you believe in or what you claim words mean. Most of the educated world knows what I mean when I say that I am an Atheist.
That's because they want to have their beliefs to themselves, I'd say. Rather than being under the thumb of a church.

You really couldn't blame them.

Religion: "the belief in a god or in a group of gods"

No, I don't blame them for trying to distance themselves from organized stupidity, but it is still religion and still stupid.

That's great! Now if we could convince those other believers out there to keep their religious beliefs out of government, we would being doing great!
I won't complain about banning praying in schools if you won't complain about nativity scenes on city property and you've got yourself a deal.

Where in the bible did god say he wanted a relationship with us?
It's implied throughout. But specifically:

"No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.-John 15:16

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." -Joshua 1:9

Then I will live among the people of Israel and be their God,-Exodus 29:45

While I can't agree with your berating comments about God's children who chose to reject Him, I can say that the "prove there's a God" thread has more of the same to offer as this one, only faster.

To believe that the very basis for someone's entire worldview can be separated from what their decisions are based on is a complete disconnect from reality. Until we are governed by machines you aren't going to see a true separation between church and state.
