Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

You seem to believe that USA has the right to take whatever land it wishes from around the world and make bases out ot them as it pleases. And just where did you get this idea? And you still wonder why most people from around the world dislike, or downright hate good ol' USA? How would you feel if China did just that in Hawaii or Alaska?
Yeah, people around the world dislike the U.S. till they need us to pull their ass out of the fire.

If China wants Alaska or Hawaii let 'em try to take it.

US film and stage actress Lauren Bacall has died at the age of 89.

Her Hollywood career spanned seven decades, with a memorable debut aged 19 opposite her future husband, Humphrey Bogart, in To Have and Have Not.

More than 50 years later, The Mirror Has Two Faces earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1924, she went on to become one of cinema's biggest stars, best known for her husky voice and smouldering looks.

A Twitter account of the Bogart estate, run by Bacall's son, tweeted: "With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall."

She reportedly died after suffering a major stroke at home in New York.

Bacall was awarded an honorary Oscar in 2009 in recognition of "her central place in the golden age of motion pictures".

Circumcision is a medical procedure, not genital mutilation.
Get a grip.
Circumcision is a procedure performed on the male genital area, it has very little medial use except in the case of Paraphimosis, Balanitis, UTI, STI and cancer. Its religious or cultural usage has nothing to do with any of these conditions. It mainly remains a religious or cultural procedure so are you saying all Hebrews and Muslims suffer from infection at birth?

You are in need of some more homeschooling.

P.S. you also need to consider it from the religion point of view – If your god the creator did not want men to have foreskins why did he arrange that every male was born with a foreskin?

Wrong. There are quite a few Roman historians that wrote about Jesus.
Were they in the Bible, Chrissy?
There is one passage in Antiquities of the Jews, a work by Josephus that is shown to be a forgery.

Tacitus referred to the execution of a person, named christus sometime around 80 or 90 years after the execution – wow

Pliny (about 100 years after jesus) said that the christ cult of Hebrews met once a week to sing to Christ, they also stated that they should never do wicked deeds or to lie. What happened?

After that we are getting into 200/300 years after events.

There are far more references to Tiberius Iulius Abdes Pantera/Panthera/Pandera (spellings change from hand written copy to hand written copy) being mentioned as the father of the prophet Yeshu ben Pantera (you know him as jesus) in the Tanakh and in roman military texts, I have even seen his gravestone.

Father of jesus?... documented accounts of jesus father from multiple sources (including the Tanakh from which your OT was selectively cloned) as a roman soldier of Greek descent who raped a Hebrew women named Mary (who in turn cried god dunit to escape stoning) and then was transferred to Germany as punishment.... But I thought you guys claim jesus was the son of your god?

The fact that war crimes “charges” are even being considered is telling enough.

Fine thanks, going in early September for a couple of weeks, don’t know about crawlinbg around in caves though, maybe, depends what they have on at Les Eyzies. Had a little wonder around grotte de Roufinagnac last month,
There is an awful lot of cave but not much to see out of the main gallery.
You could easily stand getting neck ache for hours just looking up at le grand plafond

Too close to call at the moment. Bit one horse (2 riders) race though. Maybe next season the others will have the mods sorted, getting boring watching merc win all the time

The only people siding with the Jihadist terrorists are you and your fellow terrorist-supporters in Iran.

Maybe your Jihadist terrorist friends will kidnap some little girls and you can help hold them down while they mutilate their genitals.

Then you guys can have a group science discussion on e=mc^2 proving there is no god.

Then a history class on how Stalin was a Christian.

Ending with a song of praise to Hitler for killing Jews. One of the Hitler youth songs would be appropriate. You know, that famous Christian group who sang:

" We follow not Christ, but Horst Wessel,
Away with incense and Holy Water,
The Church can go hang for all we care,
The Swastika brings salvation on Earth."

The Israeli military has shown more care to spare civilians than any military in history.

Netanyahu should get the Nobel Prize for Peace.

All civilians in Gaza should bow down and thank Israel for being so conscientious and peace-loving.

And they should think twice before they elect Jihadist terrorists to lead them next time.

Israel needs to kill a lot more Jihadists and end the thing. Death is the only thing the muslim savages understand.

So give it to them.

There's a vicious rumor circulating on topix about this sordid relationship.

It seems people are worried that buck may fall off the edge one day and you will be to blame for giving him the Acme Anvil to hold on the way down.

PS: Acme was the company name used in many Warner Bros. cartoons. Wiley coyote was a frequent customer and is very familiar with anvils.

You stupid mutt, I am not even discussing Hamas, I do not side with any of them, however buck seems to think that because I don’t side with him in his narrow minded and bigoted mindset of black and white, with me or against me (you must have had a terrible childhood) then I must automatically side with the opposition (in your dreams buck, in your dreams). You are a leader in narrow minded moronosity of the most stupid type and considering the usual high standard of bigoted and moronic stupidity displayed by the average creaturd and failed bank robber your should take that as a compliment to your kind.
I am discussing the atrocities performed by Israel and I have provided plenty of links to PROVE those atrocities against humanity, links that show that even your government disapprove of the Israeli war crimes and their abuse of the sanctity of the UN and cease fire. Grow a set and get over it.

So if your god has such a downer on foreskins why did he “create” every male with a foreskin?
Eritrea: Religious Distribution (2002) indicates that Christianity makes up 63% of the population with Islam making up 37%.

Eritrea: Female genital mutilation of 35 to 39 year olds is 92.6% and of 15-19 year olds is 78.3%.
This is a point that even Archbishop Cramer had to concede. Seems religious leaders accept the facts but Buck is so narrow minded that he totally ignores the FACTS because they interfere with his bigotry

Just because Stalin and Hitler were christian is not my problem. Has it always been that truth and facts that you disagree with your wet dreams causes to you lie so much?
