So you have no problem waging war for the sole benefit of weapons manufacturers?

They really ARE the only winners.

They also profit off your paranoia.

Do you think gun dealers and manufacturers have an opinion on assault weapon restrictions?

You rat.

You promised to wear the uniform only for me!

You can wear the nun costume, but not the uniform.

Tide, I haven't wrote anything like that since I did my GCSE's. I used to write lovey dovey poetry in Hindi, but then I gave up, I'll try and remember what I wrote and then translate it into English. I find it really hard to think like that, now.
I watched a film called source code, OMG, I'm confused. Have u seen it?
Catcher, don't worry, Tide will protect us both!:-)
Tide, it's all on u now!! Good luck!!!
I've seen Source Code. I liked it. Did you see any of the Back to the Future movies?

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall of text!

I agree. Few people are focusing on practical matters and go right for the idealism, which normally I would say is great for forum talk, but in this case it just stirs up strong emotion and gets people upset.

What are some thing we can all agree to that would make our schools safer?

At least you grey boxed when you made the post, I'd be embarrassed to use a registered name too, had I posted what you said.

Based upon statistics the majority that died in those accidents were Christian, with the possibility of some being atheist etc...

All unfortunate, no matter what their theistic belief or lack thereof happened to be.

Nice.

You might notice that no atheist said "Hopefully they were all topix Christians".(Well, except for me, right there.)

You prove once again that atheists can have higher moral standards than Christians.

Thank you.

A good article.

Something Topix atheists and too many Christians don't truly understand. Divinity comes from within, not without. Wisdom and truth comes from through us, not preached to us.

Stupid Topix atheists, they wrap their "scientists" in white robes and put halos on their head. Then bow at their feet.

Why are Topix atheists incapable of thinking in the abstract? Glorified electrons with limited circuitry.

Existence is a light shining and bouncing off thingies. Something provided the light switch.

Hey Dave!

I see that our magnetism has pulled you back in here and you're all plugged in.

BTW, the thread has evolved into a gun control discussion board.

More ignorance of Atheism AND Religion!

Educate yourself-

Atheism = belief depending on evidence
Faith = belief in the absence of evidence

Can I make it any simpler for you??
