Republican Stupidity help Democrats again ......

Republicans hoped that by filing a lawsuit against President Obama —
a move that is expected to win House endorsement Wednesday —
they would mobilize conservatives eager for a confrontation with the White House.

But so far it appears to be rallying Democrats at least as much as Republicans.

Warning that the lawsuit is just the first step toward impeachment, Democrats have turned the GOP strategy into their own fundraising and motivational tool, flooding supporters with emails in recent weeks.

House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) insisted Tuesday there were “no plans” for impeachment, calling talk of the subject a “scam” designed by Democrats to raise money.

But the specter of the nation’s first black president being accused in the House of “high crimes and misdemeanors” is something Democrats hope will energize core voters, particularly African Americans. That could be important as Democrats look for ways to guarantee a strong turnout of their supporters in the November election.

On Tuesday, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said the party had raised $7.6 million online since Boehner announced the suit in June, including $1 million collected Monday alone after incoming House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), during a network television interview, repeatedly refused to rule out the possibility of impeachment.

At least Creationists have the decency to invoke the supernatural.
You invoked 3 miracles out of pure materialism.
You are far less coherent than a Creationist.
Here is the difference between your and my philosophies .
You awe at the light, thinking it was god , so you asked it for the answer to all your questions. Satisfied, you went on following the light, never needing anything else.

I saw the light, grabbed it and put it on a stick, so it could illuminate the path before me.
In this way I found the answers, and never needed to ask the light , but used it to my advantage. Satisfied I went on my way never needing anything else.

The light of the Divine illuminates from within. You can't put it on a stick.

Sounds like you picked up someone's discarded chemical light and are using it to pick your way through the maze.

It has such a pretty green glow, doesn't it?

It will go out.

Don't trip over the bodies.

Science describes accurately the material word.
Metaphysical ideas can not be proved.
Thus each person decides for himself or herself
Philosophical issue tied to our common mortality.

Trolls seem upset that their ideas are not accepted

Acts of god are a catchword for "we don't provide coverage."

“Acts of God are a catchword”???

Three words,“Acts of God” are a catchword?

I would have written it like this,

“Acts of God,” is a catchall phrase meaning, we the insurer, don’t cover these types of claims.

You don’t have to respond.

If I must wax political...

"The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants." ~ Camus

GOP=Global Oligarchy ParlimentParty

Rule by the few, often seen as having self-serving ends.

Aristotle used the term pejoratively for unjust rule by bad men, contrasting oligarchy with rule by an aristocracy.

Most classic oligarchies have resulted when governing elites were recruited exclusively from a ruling class, which tends
to exercise power in its own interest.

"I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they
be considered patriots. This is one nation under God."- George Herbert Walker Bush

8 years of 'Mission Accomplished' sealed the nations fate for a generation.

Holy embarrassment Batman!

You couldn't try to change this administration's course by appealing to
facts and argument: they rejected facts and argument, on principle.

Most people seem not to understand that when we dealt with the Bush
administration, we were dealing with something unique, and uniquely
dangerous: an administration which was fully committed to an ideology - an
ideology that was entirely self-contained and completely self-referencing.

It was not concerned with facts, evidence, logic and argument.

It was concerned only with its own internal vision of the world, and how that world
should be constructed and how it should operate.

I didn't say you were wrong - I said - "you can't stand being wrong." There is no delineation of truth or fiction - right or wrong. But you can't see it for this, huh? You have to be argumentative in order to justify the stance you take.
Please don't take what I say out of context. If you have a question about my post - ask for clarity - before you think you understand it and have to correct me.
Carry on.
I didn't say you said I was wrong. I said you implied I was wrong.

Then I asked "Which is it?", which implies a request for clarification, which you say you are in favor of.

One party voted for that right. One party voted to revoke it, while promising to keep it.

No.

You needed infinite distance, infinite density, infinite gravity.

All of which are impossible.

I just need regular gravity and distance, etc.

You see the world as phantasm.

I live in the real world.

You live in a mental hologram.

It was clear what he meant. He was just wrong.
