Seriously though Timmy, not everyone is an ignorant puppet enslaved by the uneducation gays. Obviously, gay education has as one it's main goals the production of bad, disobedient citizens - but that doesn't mean that everyone who gets gay educated turns into a mindless husk. Gay education is at it's best when new and controversial ideas get bounced around, which is why NAMBLA exists.
And why are you talking about gay political views?
I really don't think anything convince you that the strange little narrative you have constructed in your mind - that you are right and everyone else is a mindless zombie - is wrong.
What is wrong with you? Why are you so preoccupied with gay people?

For me, it's not so much about a god.

I don't believe in anything supernatural. ANYTHING. No hexes, fairies, ghosts, witches, gods, seers, astrology, superstitions.

Gods just happen to be part of this supernatural stuff that I don't believe in.

I don't discriminate against gods, or any god.

For me, if isn't real, it isn't.....

I did read the entire article, Dave. Here is what caught my eye.
<quoted text>
He obviously wasn't as incapable of consciousness as was thought.
He doesn't attempt to explain how he went from essentially brain dead, with a doctor looking to see if they should discontinue to brain alive, in the blink of an eye. Obviously the machinery and all indications were pointing to his being a vegetable.
Yet, he blinks his eyes, voilà! From brain dead to brain function in a blink?
He continues...
<quoted text>
There is no fact involved above at all - that he experienced what he claims while in a coma.
It could have occurred as he slipped into a coma, as he was exiting the coma, or, a dream later on.
There is no fact involved there, its an assertion, an anecdote.
<quoted text>
Minute medical observation? The cortex jumps from an infected and ravaged - completely shut down -(no go)- to - GO!- in the blink of an eye?
It's just an anecdotal story, Dave.
That's all.
That it is a doctor relaying the story adds no weight or special relevance.
Well said. Dave admitted to brain damage, so he probably can't conceive of understanding you.

How were we created? To be able to create life is quite amaztng in and of itself. I find it to be even more amazing to have within us the capability to create a human being, but I find it even more intriguing on who created the first two human beings, don't you? Do you know where and how matter came into existence ?

People aren't "created." They're born. It's a fairly well described process. After that they "develop." That's a fairly well known process, too, but some mysteries yet remain to be understood.

Matter came into existence with the expansion of space + time. No, I don't know what caused it, if such an event requires a cause. It may not require a cause. Do you how the universe came into existence?
