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.

I've only recently rejoined the fray but it smelt of Poe very quickly to me- thanks for the confirmation.

I don't *like*(unscientific, I know) the idea of infestation, but it certainly works for some.

But then the infections would form a power bloc against the cooperative bacteria and who knows where that would lead...

If you arranged all the bacteria in the world in a line, one of them would wriggle and spoil it.

Let the jokes begin!
Oklahoma Highway Patrol issued a Breathalyzer at the time, and although Alred was under the state's legal alcohol limit, he had been drinking underage.

Oklahoma's measure for underage drinking is 0.02 blood to alcohol content.

Most kids would rather go to church than jail. Church has boys and girls depending on his preference.

But Dawkins book has another function. When we run out of toilet paper, I have to pull it out and rip off two or three pages and use it to wipe my a**. Its a little course but hey, that's atheism for you.
use bible pages as tobacco paper

It adds a whole new meaning to being "rear ended".

Then there's the tailgate party afterwards.

Where does it all end?

<quoted text>You are literally impervious to any information that conflicts with your world view. You've been given many, many good pieces of information on evolution and you just cover your eyes and basically say that since you don't understand it, it can't possibly be true. Cmon man. It's getting annoying. Waxing poetic about the beauty of the dolphins doesn't prove that they were designed (not to mention you completely ignored the information that contradicts your design hypothesis).
What??? No...but...I've been arguing the whole time they're evolved! What the hell???

Maybe that's what Eagle's like on meth?
