<quoted text>Have you ever considered writing a book of fictitious stories, with you as the hero in each story? In it you could include all your pseudo-science bullshit to create unbelievable situations from which you always manage to escape. Kind of like McGiver. I wold buy your book just to read about your harrowing sea escapades. Let me know the release date, thanks!!
Oh, come on now. I can't be any worse than your pretensions to be more worldly, educated, and "in the know" than us masses. I am surprised you have the time to spend on here enlightening the enlightenable, and sneering at those that aren't. Surely you have an elite social circle to jerk around with instead of on here?

Facts to a Topix atheist is something "they" told you is true. Not "facts" they develop from living themselves. Why "education" is so important to them. Otherwise they wouldn't know nothing. They'd be iggorant.
Of course, the more esoteric the "facts" they are told are "facts" by "them", and them learning those "facts", just really boosts their egos because their "education" is now elevated.
Of course, this causes many, many billions of existing humans, and all of those existing before these "facts" were revealed by "them", to be stupid, which would just have to elevate their egos to even higher levels. The absolute cream of the crop of humanity. The pinnacle of education and intelligence. It took billions of years to get there, but they arrived.
Here to save humanity.
Atheists are dumb.
Yes, Atheists are dumb, because they refuse to believe in mythical beings and magical places. Does that mean that anyone who doesn't believe in the Greek Mythology's is also dumb?

The you must contend that Theists are the opposite from dumb. People who believe an imaginary being created all there is in a few days. That it created the first human by scooping up a handful of dirt and blew on it. It then wrenched out one of this mans ribs and magically a women popped into existence. Yep, Theists are so much more intelligent !!!!!

One of the writers of the New Testament was a Medical Doctor. Did you know that Doctor?
{I don't "trust" people who base their beliefs on unsupported, or in the case of religion, non-existent evidence}.
My good Doctor, I think what you mean in the previous statement. Is that you donít want to trust people who base their beliefs in God. If you have a heart attack Doctor and I hope you donít by the way. You may find yourself in the care of people that do believe in God.
When you go to a restaurant my good man. The food you ate may have been prepared by people of faith. Your entire life Doctor you have been around people of faith. They have fed you, clothed you, fixed and manufactured your automobiles, flown and serviced your airplanes. Given your medicine and healthcare.
We know you donít want to trust people of faith but you have too.
No, one of the writers of the NT was not a medical doctor, authorship of the NT is completely unknown, there are NO autographed copies, the originals do not exist, we have ONLY stories told over the last 2000 years about who actually wrote the NT.

I never said I didn't trust a person of faith to do their job, don't put words into my mouth. I don't trust people who claim to know things without supportive evidence, big difference.

<quoted text>
The first mention of December 25 as the birth date of Jesus occurred in A.D. 336 in an early Roman calendar. The celebration of this day as Jesus' birth date was probably influenced by pagan festivals held at that time. The ancient Romans held year-end celebrations to honor Saturn, their harvest god; and Mithras, the god of light... As part of all these celebrations, the people prepared special foods, decorated their homes with greenery, and joined in singing and gift giving. These customs gradually became part of the Christmas celebration.
The Puritans of Massachusetts Bay frowned on Christmas revelry, considering the holiday a Roman Catholic ritual. A law in the colony barred anyone from taking the day off work, feasting or engaging in other celebrations on Christmas, under penalty of a five-shilling fine. The law was repealed in 1681, but Christmas celebrations remained unpopular in New England and other colonies for many years.
Even after the Revolution many Americans still viewed Christmas as a Tory custom and a reminder of the expelled British. Although Christmas became popular in the South as early as the 1830s, other regions were apathetic.
Congress did not begin adjourning on Christmas Day until 1856. Public schools in New England were often open on Dec. 25, as were many factories and offices. Many Protestant churches refused to hold services, considering the holiday ďPope-ish.Ē
Not until after the Civil War did Christmas begin to seriously affect American cultural and religious life. European immigration increased sharply after the war, and many of the newcomers came from countries with strong Christmas traditions. Germans, Italians, Poles, Swedes, Norwegians and others brought the holiday and many of its features, including Christmas trees and Santa Claus, to America in a big way.
The celebration spread, and in 1870 Christmas was declared a federal holiday by Congress. But practices in the states continued to vary. As late as 1931 nine states still called for public schools to remain open on Christmas Day.

A judgement is the ability to judge, make a decision, or form an opinion objectively, authoritatively, and wisely. Not merely an opinion. Your evolution scientists have findings based on their best judgements......
I don't care what you do or don't trust.
I've already told you about praying to heal. Don't you read?
So you think it wise to believe in magic? Is it also wise to believe in something simply because it makes you feel good?

Evolution scientists base their finding on EVIDENCE. You make a "judgement" on something based on reliable facts or the absent's of those facts. Peter Pan is either real or he isn't. Make a judgement, is he real? Who do you judge if he is or isn't?

I prefer NOT to have to go back and find your post on hospitals. Would you stay home and pray if you were seriously ill rather than go to the hospital?

Atheists are dumb when they say everything just popped out of nowhere in seconds and then call theists stupid for believing it took six days. Among a few other things they often say.

You have a serious issue understanding theists and deists. You see, you think literally like a fundie of any religion, totally oblivious to the fact most theists and deists don't take the words in the books so serious as you do. The Big Bang and evolution can very easily be the mechanism a deity used to achieve its ends. Most intelligent people realize those books are old and had to be written in a parable fashion. Kind of hard explaining modern cosmology to goatherders that didn't have telescopes. Or even first grade in an accredited school. But they were still human, and that is what the books are about.

But damned if you won't use such a thing as a talking point to support your views. And then go into rants against religions.

To make things easier on you, perhaps any more posts you make to me you can use the line number of the script you have read them off. I have heard them all many, many times. Amazing how "free thinkers" can think the exact same thing.

Peter Pan will exist long after you are gone and forgotten. He must then exist.
