I was going to say white crayons but then I thought that if they were using black paper then I thought crayons are non-toxic, then I thought that water is non-toxic, then I thought water is clear, then I thought.. any way white on white works.

I always give to the Crayon rights movement.

Not just green but Shamrock Green. When I'm in the Cayman Islands, I give Caribbean green.

White is the least used Crayon in the box according to Crayola. It's a conspiracy by the paper companies. They're all racist.

That one.
And what's included in that "system" other than the "belief" that there is no god?

Not bad.

But I have a belief system.

It is secular humanism.

And it doesn't require belief OR nonbelief in gods of any kind.

Isn't a belief something that you think is true? You think that religion is wrong, so you think your opinion is true, so is that not a belief?
But it's not a belief system.

A belief system consists of much more than a single belief.

And most Christians here use the term "belief" disingenuously in an attempt to liken us to them.

Sikhism denied religion, but it too is called a religion now, that's how things are in this world, people assume and put name tags on you.
This is what wiki says about Sikhism:

Would you say this is accurate?

If not, why not.

You will be scored on your answer.

<quoted text>There is NO argument to be had, there probably is no God. And thats the polite rendition, I like this one better. Due to the complete and utter lack of evidence there simply is no God. Or.........The evidence for God is the same as there is for werewolves.
That last part's not true.

There is much more evidence for werewolves.

Haven't you ever been to the movies?

Bob is the sharpest Crayon in the box. He's the one that is useless so it's never used. He'll always be the sharpest.

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.
