Colour is chemistry. So is sight.

If a blind person touches a rose bush they may never do it again, depending on where they touch it. But it smells good, right?

He is the most scrollable person I've ever met. I like that in a dumbass.

He is useful though. Last night, when I saw his name, I wrote douche on my shopping list. I needed one.

I have a leg.

It can do almost everything my old leg could do but when I paint my toenails I still only have 5.

That one.
How about the belief system that requires evidence before belief and simply doesn't ind any solid evidence for any deity?

In the case of the ad, there is the belief that those who give up religious superstition will end up being happier people.

Ahhhhh.......
The ole "It's not [insert tradition] because it's been used differently in the past" tactic......
Stupid.
So when I BBQ a steak, I guess you'd consider that a ritual sacrifice because they USED to do that......
Say what? Just because you claim it now does not mean it is not older than your mythical beliefs. Why are you so ignorant to consider that winter solstice celebration was a christian idea

Fact – winter solstice was (and still is) a pre christian belief, and was practised throughout the known (and then unknown) world

Fact - Yule was a north European custom.

Fact - Saturnalia was a Roman custom

Christianity took the traditions using the ploy, join our club and you won’t need to give up you winter celebration. Without those tactics the “new” religion would have gone the same way as hundreds of others such ideas.

The same applies to Easter, taken from the spring right to the god Eostre, hell they could not even be bothered changing the name much

As I have said before JC did not exists as the person depicted in your babble and the fact that celebrations in his name are pre-existing rites must really stick in you gullet

And what has steak got to do with the price of fish? All species have been eating since evolution first began. Or are you trying to claim food as a christian traditions now?

By the way, have you seen the results of the UK census, released yesterday – christianity down 18% in 10 years, won’t be long now eh?

If there would no God than Where we come? Automatically?
Every creation must have a creator, nothing can be create without creator... So there is One behind our presence in the universe.. And this One create whole universe. If it would One more creator than there must be different but what is be seen? An Perfect ecological balance in whole universe...
