Theism is not religion.
Get an education if you want me to take you seriously.
Alternatively, you could attempt a valid point.
Theism “Belief in the existence of a god or gods, specifically of a creator who intervenes in the universe”
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/...

Religion “The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods”
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/...

Note the belief and god or gods - close enough not to confuse anyone other than butt crack

E=MC^2 shows that the omnipotent god as described in KJV revelation 19:6 cannot exist in this universe at the same time as you.

President Bush, who four years ago couldn’t identify a single mistake by his administration, on Monday ticked off a list of its shortcomings and disappointments, ranging from failures to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq to its oft-criticized response to Hurricane Katrina.
And in his 50th and final solo White House press conference, the president said his successor, Barack Obama, will feel the weight of the presidency and the nation’s safety on his shoulders. He also spoke of making his wife, Laura, coffee on his first morning out of office.
Mr. Bush displayed flashes of remorse, wit and humor when discussing missteps such as the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in Iraq,
his attempt to overhaul Social Security rather than take on immigration reform in 2005,
and the unfurling of a “Mission Accomplished” banner on an aircraft carrier shortly after Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was toppled.
W did have a way with words...

''There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.''
—President George W. Bush, Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 17, 2002.

''Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.''
—President George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004

''See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.''
—President George W. Bush, Greece, N.Y., May 24, 2005

''They misunderestimated me.''

The error is strong in you , my young padawan learner.
Time is a constructive concept. You cannot trip over it.

It is a way to catologue, or order physical events, and units of quantity are assigned in linear fashion.

You don't see past time, or any time, but the difference in past time and future time is that it is detected, recorded, or remembered in it's association with events.

If you want to claim future time exists, you may present the physical future events with which you detected such time.

If you lived in the future and came back here to provide that for us, I suspect you could make lots of money on the movie rights.

Hollywood loves fantasies like the one you live n.

Knocks out Jimmy Carter as worst president.
Defensive as you should be after 4500 American lives lost In Iraq.

I didn't see something in there which supports your equating of theism with a particular religion.

Maybe you're trying to prove my point.

I'm only defensive about Bush to those who support the idiot we have in office now, or blame present difficulties on Bush.

I opposed the war in Iraq. I opposed several things Bush did.

Bush never tried to put blame on other Americans for his problems, and he believed in the idea of America as a great nation.

Not this president.

Because that god eould have you in a bottle.

Lovey, you missed the infinite BS of the last few days, the finite universe identified by those who came up with that formula, and the passing out of brains and emotional restraint.

But I bet you got a fine looking ass.

Hey Dave, why are atheists so prone to preposterous beliefs?

I mean, it seems there is only one unprovable idea they reject.

Thoughts?

Rather neutral on atheists and Christians as have good friends on each persuasion.
Are you attempting to be an embarrassment to your side?

I dish out the embarrassment around here, Patrick.

I used your name properly because you finally asked a relevant question.

Answer is I'm neither a Christian nor an atheist.

On alternating occasions, I embarrass both.
