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.

Hey Lincock, despite changing your sock you still seem obsessed by Dawkins.

Why is that?
Are you an Evolutionary biolgist? You don't seem bright enough.

You misunderstand me. My friend wasn't fighting in Iraq, he was a Christian NGO. Moreover, I have several Christian NGO friends who worked in Afghanistan helping widows establish businesses, working to develop alternative crops for farmers and setting up schools for girls. And that is just a tiny part of the countries and Christian NGO organizations the Church I pastored was involved in supporting and sending out.
As to donations and service, I'd bank you are wrong.

And there is the cornered Queen shifting to cover her idiocy and lies...
I made no inference of foxhole atheists. I noted that they are on the barbaric, selfish side of history over and over. I was specifically referring to the French support of Saddam.
And you STILL can't explain who those Gazan missiles fell on their own heads and their tunnel scheme collapsed days before an attempt to murder women and children on a Jewish Holy day, exactly as the Bible predicted!
Smirk.
Here let me quote you lie...
“Where were the atheists? Oh, they were helping Saddam make gas to murder entire Kurdish villages...”

Nothing more than a godbot lie based on godbot delusion and godbot wet dreams. You want to lie for your god, that’s OK with me but don’t get all upset and defensive and lying when it is pointed out to you that you are a liar.

I really don’t care about those missiles so let’s all go with god dunitwiv magic eh? Oh wait a moment, how can that be? The Muslim god would not go around killing his own followers, followers who incidentally are far more devout than any christian I have ever met.

Oh yes, sorry to confound your dreams of your god killed their gods followers but you really should know that tunnels built in sand have a tendency to collapse fairly readily. No god is required.

And you still can’t explain this UN building and hospitals and schools and children targeted by Israel

Where did I deny atheists use the Church to take advantage of the faithful?
Moreover, you continue your bigoted, hateful slander about the vast majority of Pastors. But truth has never been a hindrance for you has it Queen of the 'rational atheist' oxymorons?
Smile.
WTF has atheism got to do with preachers fleecing the gullible to make profit? Oh I get it you are trying to obfuscate the facts with your typical BS because you cannot handle the facts. Yes I remember your tactics when you have nowhere else to run. I could say that you would next go for the name calling routine but you already did that. Must really be sad to have a mind as limited as yours

And you do not slander atheist by lying about them? Funny how payback always gets you right where it hurts eh? Can’t say I have ever seen a poor preacher, except perhaps you and that only because you were kicked out.

It was the same Chrissy "death threat" as me 'needing a new scope'.
There is a considerable difference between you sighting me in your scope and me discussing your embarrassment

Perhaps you are simply too dim wilted to see that difference or perhaps you are just jumping on a bandwagon by distorting the facts because you have been publically shown to be a violent gun toting moron

I'm a loser but you called America a terrorist nation, and I support that terrorist nation.

You want the post of yours? Okay:

"LOL... good job I read your post last night before I went home otherwise I would have sprayed my coffee.
Not fascist? Not a dictatorship? Your pretty pink and fluffy dream of the light hearted and gentle nature of the US is so touching.
You will toe the line, you will proceed as we want, you will form your government in our image, you will not do anything to upset the delicate senilities of the American public - You will allow extradition of your citizens who break US law to the US as US demand but we will never reciprocate for US citizens who break your laws.
The CIA are the most dictatorial organisation on this planet and ask any of the inmates of Guantanamo bay just how fascist the US military can be.
And you forgot the Israeli terrorist killing innocent women and children under the protection of the UN (and killing an 8 year old girl under the protection of cease fire) But I suppose you consider that sort of terrorism to be ok because you help finance it.
Seems you are always OK with terrorism that you help finance. Hypocrite."

HAHA!
"The attack on a UN-run school in Gaza by the Israeli military was "totally unacceptable and totally indefensible", the US has said."
Josh Earnest is a media douche, he is NOT the US, he's an individual that seems to forget that when the enemy hides weapons in schools, schools get bombed.
I don’t really care what you consider a report of FACT, it was the action I was highlighting

There are several other reports of the same action by many different reporters. British, French, Canadian, American Australian etc, etc.

If you get your kicks by committing war crimes by killing children, bombing schools and hospitals and UN building there is simply nowhere to hide. Get over it.

Both you and buck have repeatedly claimed that weapons were hidden in schools and repeatedly you have not provided any backup whatsoever to validate those claims... It really does make me wonder, why is this?

What’s theirs? what was stolen and handed to them. Not content with what they were given they chose to take more and created settlements on the best bits of land that was not given to them.

Then to stop any reprisals they chose to impoverish the inhabitants of the land they stole by preventing economic, humanitarian and medical aid by blockading them for 8 years.

considering how much a proffesional athlete gets for being good with a stupid ball or how much a rap 'artist'(smirk) gets for a 'song'(smirk), a good preacher should pull-down at least 7 figures for every sermon if people weren't such idolators and morons!!!;-)
When I was young preachers were supposed to be poor. They lived by the grace of God and the congregation. It was a "holy" calling. Any money surplus went to church work, not the pastor's pocket.

Then I read in the late 70's or so where the average preacher's salary was $44,000. That wad very good money at that time. Was such a profitable profession seminaries sprang up and cranked out lots of preachers. Baptist, anyhow. They taught the hair style and magic words to lead the faithful.

Religion turned into showbiz.

Nothin wrong with the religion, just the kind of people that flock to where the money is.

You ain't listening to God's word in those big churches that pay preachers that much.

Right, it is illegal to sell wild meat without USDA inspection. You cant even have wild game processed in the same facility as meat that will be sold. Or even your own hand raised beef, pork or chicken. Must be totally separate.
You can have private dinners and eat any or all of it, but as far as a restaurant serving it full time, I am not sure how they would handle that.
In pennsylvania hunters just give their game away. We donate deer and bear legally culled to homeless shelters, etc. As long as you give it away big brother doesn't bother you.

It seems they all think they do, thus all the finger pointing and saying "they are not REAL Christians". I am. My church has everything right.

And the animal didn't die for no reason. I very much like the fact that people can donate the food to be eaten. Killing just to get a trophy to hang over the fireplace is just sick to me. Hunters need to know exactly where to donate unwanted meat. It should be on their hunting license. A phone number or web address so someone can come pick up the meat.

Uh, Auralie, supply and demand. Cows are easier to catch. In fact there is a whole industry built around that. However they are getring much more expensive. This is the smallest cattle herd since 1951. BTW, John Deere took a big hit to profits because sales of farm machinery were way down. But the prices for food won't. Malthusian economics.
Free range beef and chicken are more expensive. Game animals will be, too. Called economics.
I just love the intellectual power Topix atheists can bring to bear on a subject. Doesn't interfere with listening to the crickets.
You just may be the biggest a-hole and dumbest prick inside of topix.. But you try real hard to be.
