Eagle, I congratulate you.

You managed to put together a complete sentence, without a single grammatical mistake.

I pat myself on the back for whatever contribution I have made to your progress.

Now keep it up; don't fail me.

Personally, if we are going to stand by the ruling of a guilty plea then we must stand by the ruling when one is found innocent.
I must say I admire Fred Goldman’s tenacity to peruse justice for his son who was brutally murdered. His civil trial was a success. If there’s a hero in all this it’s Fred Goldman.
OJ was found guilty of armed robbery in Nevada. He was also found guilty of killing his ex-wife and Ron Goldman in a civil case. How fitting the long arm of justice was a bit slow but it caught up with OJ.
He is never getting out.
Fred Goldman didn't "peruse" justice, dude.

One more time, farina, it says so because that is the topic you accessed this from. I access it from topstories. It has to do with the way Topix aggregates.
Dumbass abiogenetic atheist. Don't know nothing. Sure assume a whole bunch, though.
30,000+ gods to select from, 32,000 christian sects, 4 billion Hindi gods but of course only "Dave Nelson" is right.

I will ask you the same questions I have asked of other godbots and have never had a reply:-

1. How did you pick the god you follow?
2. How much research did you do?

No ducking just answer these two simple questions.

OK Dave, this is an order.
Go to the bathroom and wash your mouth out with soap.
Immediately.
What's come over you?
This sort of hostility and namecalling is entirely inappropriate.
If there are gods out there, they are pissed as hell at you.
No.

Tired of abiogenetic atheists spreading their lies, murdering millions, and a host of other immoral acts. Plus they smell like they have been eating roadkill. On the hoof.

They ain't. neither.

So you are passing judgment on your old man? I guess he made more mistakes than what you accuse him of. Like having you.
If this person has children then perhaps they will grow up to publically confess all his sins and shortcomings, if there is any justice out there. This whole concept of publically confessing the sins of parents is in bad taste to say the least. I have heard the rationale is to help others but in reality the audience is mostly voyeurs not interested in help, but entertainment. This fellow does not expose himself but his father. Next time he should confess his own sins and not the alleged shortcomings of his father.

Quite a bit.

You lack imagination. Among other things. You must be an atheist.

BTW, life is not a college classroom. The rules are different.

The guiding theory of neuroscience would be evolution. Under that umbrella, their theory is "mind is brain."
.. you point to objective science, Dave leans on subjective experience. Is one better than the other ??..
"better" in the sense that you can produce knowledge-based technology through the tools of science while you cannot get very far leaning on subjective experience in that domain. In that regards, science describes reality more accurately.

Not better in the sense of morality or qualitative experience.
.. we've debated this before and it leads nowhere ..
Have we?
.. since you do not know how Dave was raised, your declarative statement losses credibility ..
He was raised in the USA. He doesn't speak a second language and hasn't lived in another culture. He's pretty honest about his views and his delusional understanding of science.
.. more smooches, sweets! If I don't challenge you regularly, you'll lose all respect for me and .........

My gold lies in a foreign land buried deep beneath the sand

And one point is that we *know* this is false. In particular, quantum fluctuations do not have causes.
You don't know there is no cause. The whole idea may appeal to you. I find it interesting you are so willing to throw out causal law and declare there are effects without cause. According to an article i read by Jeremy Royal Howard. Many appear in artificial lab settings. The ability to penetrate the micro physical is still rudiment and subject to speculation and error. Considered quantum oddities. So there is skepticism.
And a very good hypothesis is that the universe came from such, which means it is uncaused.
Now,*you* could also claim that God came from a quantum fluctuation, but I'm guessing you won't do that.:)
Not really. Still not convinced the big bang is uncaused event.
