You think GOD might be making bacteria for fun; then look at those in the country villages who survive into their 90ís and 100ís, hips and knees in place, no triple bypass, no daily needles for insulin, and marvel at how they can do it without the help of man(kind); because that is how it should and could be.
That is what we have to look forward to; if we are lucky.

Atheists require as much faith? No. Why? Because we're all atheist about something. Christians are atheist about all the other gods they don't believe in. Does it take faith about each and every other god they don't believe in?

Whenever I hear a believer say atheists have just as much faith as them I know I'm in the presence of a retard. All fully atheist people disbelieve in is one extra god more than a monotheist. However, they don't believe in all the other same gods as an atheist.

Interesting link on estimating bacteria numbers: 5x10^30. That's nearly a thousand billion billion for each one of us.

Bacteria reproduce every 20 minutes. There are billions times billions times billions times billions of the little guys around. Do you think that's what keeps God busy? He's always like "oh, no! I need another one over there! And over there! And there! And ther! Ther! The..! T..!" pretty soon, no more time on His hands. Only bacteria.
Finally, on Sunday, He climbs into bed, aching arms and knees, and says "Gosh darnit. I should have listened to Thor when He said evolution was the way to go..."

I wonder if Tony Hayward got his life back after his company destroyed the eco system of the Gulf of Mexico.. The sad part of all this he should be locked up in one of our Gulf Coast Prisons. Since this site is about faith. I hope BP and other companies ďbelieveĒ they will get hammered if they fail to protect their employees and the environment.
The fine is a bit low. It should have been 15 or 20 billion. Like I said, itís disappointing Hayward didnít get charged with a felony.
The Wall street Journal.
#PLC agreed to accept criminal responsibility for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster that killed 11 workers and to pay $4.5 billion in fines and restitution, the biggest penalty ever levied by the U.S. Justice Department.
But the oil producer still faces an even costlier battle with the government over civil penalties for the pollution unleashed when the drilling rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and caused the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.
The oil damaged the region's important seafood and tourism industries, resulting in billions of dollars in lost revenue. For weeks, repeated efforts to stop the gushing crude failed, as underwater cameras sent the live images to TV viewers. Finally, almost three months later, the well was capped.
In addition to the settlement Thursday, three former BP employees were charged by a federal grand jury with felonies in the incident, two of them for allegedly failing to carry out a critical safety test properly.

.....The 'Oil & Gas' business is the biggest and safest and high-salaried in the WholeWideWorld.
Nothing is FailSafe and sometimes schidt happens.
BP has been in existance for many, many years and BobLoblah has had the good fortune to work (on contract) for BP a few times around the world.
Yes, BP committed some errors in its operations in the Gulf of Mexico....and so has BroncoBama in its operations of protecting his citizens in Benghazi. BP has accepted full responsibility and is stepping forward to pay the price.
It should be noted that 'quite a few' local fisherman, especially shrimp fisherman, were compensated in 2010 and 2011 and 2012 without having to wait for this 'penalty sum' to come down. What they had to say includes wordings 'we made more each of these three years than we could have earned actually fishing and we didn't have to get up in the mornings to do so. It wouldn't be so bad if we had a blowOut every once in a while'.
These comments followed on the heels of Alaskan fisherman who garnished so much monies as a result of the Exxon Valdex's accident and spilling its cargo of crude. For years the local fishermen and their dogs were involved in cleaning up at top Dollars and today are retired millionaires. The area looks pretty clean toooooo.
Now, on the other hand, a few years later when there was 'another' supertanker that went aground off the coast of Scotland and spilled a 'Larger Cargo' than the Exxon Valdez, nobody heard much about it. Wanna know why, well it has to do with ALL the monies that environmentalists expect to make and pocket from the oil companies. In this case, NO oil company OWNED the cargo of oil. It was owned by speculators and these are money shifters who buy low and sell high (they even do it to their mothers). As such all the Greenpeacers and ILK had no time to expend to garnish no monies for their efforts. There was just nothing in it, even though there was MORE crude emptied into the seas than there was in Alaska.
Go figure.
Ps:....In addition, the Oil & Gas industry hires millions of people and is the sustanance of families around the WholeWideWorld.
BobLoblah knows. BobLoblah is von of dose toooooooo.

.....Yeah. You sure know what you are talking about, ya eeejit.
The 'Ocean Ranger' was filled with British contractors when it toppled over and 'went down' in 1982 taking All Hands along with it. The report that followed blamed the 'accident' on a simple matter of NOT turning the ballast and de-ballast valves in the correct fashion. Seems like the British bosses on board didn't read the 'manual' properly.
...and dere's the other one....da 'Production Platform' in the North Seas owned by Norway and operated and managed by British contractors. It exploded and caused the largest disaster of all.
While BP will say that BP is good (BobLoblah has worked for BP), BP is not No. 1.......Exxon is and has been for years. In addition Exxon is the largest corporation in the WholeWideworld. It hires Americans, Brits, and peoples from far beyond and 'trains' dem to do their jobs.

No, I actually pay little attention to your posts, I don't have the time or the desire to try and decipher what your childish accented words mean. Once you again, its very obvious that you crave attention, that you somehow think what you're doing is "cool" and that people think "oh its just Bob being funny again." Well, it's neither funny nor intelligent in any way. Oh, you are drawing attention to yourself, but its people seeing what a desperate child you are begging for attention. You are pitiful. I'll just pass over all you posts from now on, like I do with the T town clown, or whatever his posting name is. Your posts contain NOTHING relevant or intelligent, the last word I'll ever post to you is ..........PITIFUL!!
