Difference between Romney and President Obama:
Romney complies with USA Labor Law, The constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.
Demanding every Stockholder, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church; markets the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of every worker, consumer, and taxpayer's wages (union contract), healthcare, pension, investment and independent business profit. This enables every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay healthcare insurance premium or pay healthcare provider. Enables Romney to pay own freight in the Falls, pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service he uses for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit. And enable Romney to educate, love, nurture, discipline, protect, and provide; for every child (job) he conceive. And fund schools, infrastructure, local and national security, government services, and etc.; with money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.
Obama holds Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and America’s grandchildren’s children, Government employees, Parents, Teachers, Veterans, Police, Firemen, and Fathers disqualified for affirmative action with white skin, Representatives deny Collective Bargaining Rights accountable.
To fund Illegal drug users and Immigrants, lottery, casino, and keno losers, unemployed Union workers replaced with nonunion workers, Human Traffickers, waitresses that pander for life for $2.00 per hour, slaves in enterprise zones, low-income child labor, consumers, and taxpayers, volunteers without wages, and nonunion workers willing to work for fewer wages than they can afford life. That pays with welfare checks, food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.
Pay for all stimulus packages, tax abatements, tax incentives, tax refunds, tax credit, and tax exemptions.
Pay sales tax on the more stock dividends (money) OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders (money marketers) market quarterly. In the wholesale and retail price of every product and service Human Beings use for life. And School Boards and Government needs to build, maintain and operate schools, infrastructure, and provide local and national security, and Government services. That gets only product or service.
Needed to measure and maintain the strength and growth of this UNAFFORDABLE economy and distribute money Human Beings cannot digest, burn in internal combustion engines, or burn to heat and cool their American Dream. Into OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders portfolios.
Defying USA Labor Law, the Constitution, and Realities demands is bankrupting USA. Makes free, fair, and affordable commerce IMPOSSIBLE; Makes funding schools IMPOSSIBLE; Makes balancing every budget IMPOSSIBLE; Makes Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and Americas grandchildren's children life UNAFFORDABLE; and created Ohio’s $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $16 trillion national debt. America’s grandchildren’s children are responsible to pay Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders interest with this debt until they are 18 years old.
America’s grandchildren’s children cannot afford life and pay this debt with the $7.25 per hour Government mandated labor wage in a hundred million years.

Once you specify operationally what a god is, the hypothesis that there is no god is scientific, since it is falsifiable by producing a god.
Your Atheism takes sides. Science is neutral. That is the difference. You should not be allowed to justify your anti theism by wrapping it in Science.

Those people died because of religions like Christianity, Stalinism, Islam and Maoism. Worship is always a mistake.
So now you connect Stalinism and Maoism to religion. How convenient for you. Ignoring the fact your anti theism is the same as their anti theism. You just claim different results. Reading your posts there is not a dime's worth of difference since you engage in hate speech, ridicule, distortion all the time here. Above is an example of propaganda.

Thanks for your concern. I have a new leg. It has a microprocessor in it. It reacts to the muscle movement in my thigh. I does whatever my old leg can do and more. I have an app. I can make it move even when I'm not wearing it. Halloween is gonna be fun :)

Totally. Science, the tool, is neutral. People aren't.

If you understood what science tells us about human brains and enculturation, you might have a better understanding of how your Christian experiences are encultured brain experiences - subjectively biased, imagined representations of reality.

You are still raging against the machine. Your emotions blind you to seeing it in its totality. So you have grabbed onto something to create your own view. You just found another religion in furtherance of your passion. Such is evinced by your black and white views expectorated about religion, particularly that immature one about it stifling science. You totally ignore the fact that many deistic and theistic scientists look upon science, and the scientific method, as a way to see how higher forms assembled this existence. A back engineering to find God. Outside of organized religion. No, you have to paint them ALL evil.
YOUR science is stifled by your emotion.
You are too damned young to be as wise as you like to think.
