<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!!

What constitutes a "fact" is a lot more complicated than what you portray. You are unlikely to understand that.

That's a fact.
It's wrong.

It depends on the personality disorder. Dave is probably incurable, but it's nice of you to worry about him.

What would possess a man to pretend to be multiple women on topix?
I just donít understand this person known as Catcher1 playing different roles as women. Flirting with you other Atheist as if heís a woman. You do realize youíre talking to a fellow atheist and a man?
If one of his characters goes away. Another new one comes and takes her place. Theyíre always young and attractive women so he would want you to believe. Young beautiful women have better things to do with their time.
They have boyfriends, school, work, friends and family. They donít have time to be on here with a group of Baby Boomers. Hey, if you want to talk to another man pretending to be a woman, knock yourself out.
But I find it waaaaaaaay too freaking weird.
Catcher is only Catcher, Eagle. He isn't anyone else.

Aside from some private info I have, you can tell from the post count. High post count like yours, mine or Catchers, and they don't have socks. Low post count, probably a sock.

Logic my dear boy, pure logic
Whales and many other salt water aquatic animals cannot survive in fresh water
What comes out of the sky why itís raining?
And how much fresh water would be needed to cover the earth to a depth of 8.855 kilometres?(7 metreís higher then the highest mountain as specified in the babble)
I actually worked it out the other day to quote to a creationist, it was around 4,500,000,000 cubic kilometers of water which happens to be around 3.5 times the amount of water that exists on the earth. he has not responded.
And would such an amount of fresh water dilute the salt water?
And having diluted the salt water what would happen to the whales after a year emerged in water with less that 28% the salt content they need?
And yet we still have whales and sharks swimming our seas which just happen to contain slat water of enough salinity to sustain their life.
Or of course you could simply shrug your shoulders, ignore the scientific and natural necessities and say it was magic
um..... What?

A whale couldn't survive for a year on a boat. Are you forgetting that?

Are you also forgetting that God made it rain?

How do you know it was raining fresh water? Were you there? Did you take some samples?

My point is your whole thesis is based on assumption, not facts.

Your scientific analysis is flawed.

Blindly following a god book is a sign of a weak mind
Depression is a medical condition that can have several triggers. The cause is unknown and can in no what be associated with a weak mind. It is the more intelligent person who is statistically more likely to suffer depression so we can pretty much guarantee that you will never suffer from itís debilitating effects
Depression IS a sign of a weak mind, a weak person.

Boredom is a sign if a weak mind.

Gluttony is a sign of a weak mind.

Depression isn't a "disease" any more than being fat is a "disease".

You're pathetic.

Ancient Aliens Debunked.
Ancient Aliens Debunked is a 3 hour refutation of the theories proposed on the History Channel series Ancient Aliens. It is essentially a point by point critique of the "ancient astronaut theory" which has been proposed by people like Erich von Dšniken and Zecharia Sitchin as well as many others.

Avert Tax Increases and Spending Cuts:

Comply 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. Pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service they use for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

And enables every parent to educate, love, nurse, nurture, discipline, protect, and provide; for every child (job) they conceive. And fund schools, infrastructure, local and national security, government services, and etc.; with money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

The majority of Us the Government of this Representative Republic that vote and the nonvoters that sit on their dead hands and whine; Successfully reelected Obnoxious President, Governor, Representatives of US the Government, County Commissioners, Township Trustees, Mayors, City Council, School Administrators and Board Members.

That hold Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and Americaís grandchildrenís 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 Illegal 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.

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 Ohioís $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $16 trillion national debt. Americaís grandchildrenís children are responsible to pay Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders interest with this debt until they are 18 years old. Americaís grandchildrenís children cannot pay this debt in a hundred million years.

<quoted text> It is an exclusive claim. Not optional or shared whith others. <quoted text> And you are dependent on these sikhi's and gurus for salvation or saving relationship with God apart from Christ? <quoted text> They are men. When they die they are still in their graves or cremated or whatever. Jesus resurrected as proof to all He is the Savior. Jesus is Man/God. <quoted text> Actually Jesus did. John 14:6.'I am the way the truth the life; no one comes to the Father (God) but through Me.'
<quoted text> Then either your religion is wrong or Jesus is wrong. Both cannot be right.
<quoted text> If your religion is true then Jesus is a liar. How does that help people? Beliefs may give purpose and direction in life and help people to be better and may also provide a basis for living but does your belief, your trust in these gurus get you to God? Relative to Christ i think you are putting your trust is a dry well by trusting these gurus and i am not trying to be mean. Just telling you what you need to know. You need to investigate Christ. Two books that helped me were,'Basic Christianity' by John Stott and 'The Holiness of God' by RC Sproul.
How can you say Jesus said that, when he didn't even write the bible?

You really believe in the resurrection stories? Even the gurus and the saints were resurrected, so what's so special about that? Personally, I don't believe in these stories, so they are not important to me.

My religion and God are perfect for me, I don't need any other God! My religion has taught me to love and see God in every living thing, I couldn't live with myself if I thought like you.

Jesus is not a liar. It's not Jesus, I don't get along with, it's christian thinking that I have a problem with, I just don't understand you guys and I don't think I ever will!

"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians, your Christians are so unlike your Christ." -Mahatma Gandhi

I'm not angry with anything you have said, I've met christians who have said alot worse to me.

Thank you for your kind words! God bless you too!
