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.

You know that I'm staying out of this one.

The feelings are too strong; friendship is more important.

I know it's just something to whoop about, in my state we have already enacted legislation that bars federal laws from infringement of our 2nd amendment rights. So has Texas and Florida a few others.
But with this country so divided it's not going to get much accomplished. It could speed us along our way to the worst times in American history. It also sets the stage for bitter fights between the States and Washington. Lame Duck Session I believe is what they call it.

Aura, my problem with what you say is that I'm by nature an optimist.

I believe we'll work things out.

We get our allotment of time here on earth, and we happen to be sharing it. We have to appreciate it, enjoy it, make the most of it.

We should aim to minimize conflict, if possible, while maintaining our core principles.

Screw that type mentality. I'll stick with something like this.

There are those, I know, who will say that the liberation of humanity, the freedom of man and mind, is nothing but a dream. They are right. It is the American dream.~Archibald MacLeish

Again, why resort to ad hom? Is it really your purpose to diverge from logic and substance? Why not explain why the idea expressed fails the test of logic when by attacking the writer instead of what is written, you imply that you cannot do the latter, further implying your own defeat? You can do better. You once did. Why not return to writing posts worth reading?

Revelation 12:9
"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
See that?
"that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan"
NOT ANYWHERE, huh?
Ahh yes you are of course correct, my mistake, the NT does mention it. However the Tanakh in which events were claimed to have happened and from which the OT is “selectively” copied DOES NOT.

So here we go again with the convenient time travel thing

Adam, Eve and the secret slippery serpent – what around 6000 years ago according to the goddidit brigade, the OT, the Qu’ran and of course the one that really counts, the original, the Tanakh. But is the great RR’s interpretation different we ask ourselves???

Then we have Revelation written when… less than 2000 years ago in the time of Domitian. Been here before, hindsight is great of a babble interpreter – yes?

Flick a switch, abracadabra - ohh look yet another hole in the OT magically fixed.
