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.

I woke up in a Little Debbie truck somewhere outside of Reno.

The cute little truck driver girl said she was taking me to get married, and she showed me the ring I apparently put on her finger.

It was quite the dilemma. The problem solved itself when I couldn't remember her name.

You'll never guess what it was.

No, I don't think so, but perhaps they have less empathy than others I know. There is no need for anyone to make comments on his postings, and I guess as long as I post in here, he will make reference to Gillian one way or another. Maybe it is up to me to just leave this thread, I am not learning anything anyway :)

She is a nutter man. Ok look let's be real. Who comes on a forum and drones on and on about her so called dead sister who she never even met because it happened years before she was born?!

That's just morbid and bizarre. I mean it's not like the two had even seen each other let alone spent years together. We have all had family members die of screwed up circumstances but normal people don't go on and on about it especially if they had never even seen the person!

She uses this supposedly dead sister as an emotional appeal a get out stupid jail free card when she sounds like a reject.

Last year about this time, I lived under a bridge. My name was Sally to some. Solly to the ones that understood.

There are some extremely intelligent people that live on the fringe.

Scienc teaches that you can claim that anything is true if the only basis for believing it, is that nobody has proved it isn't.
Science doesn't teach anything, any more than a hammer teaches carpentry.

Learn what science is before you proceed or you will look a fool.

Once upon a time they didn't lock their doors, now they use deadlocks and security systems.... but perhaps, life in Australia is different to a degree, although we are heading in the same sort of direction.
Are you 5? Because in the 80s and 90s you had to lock your doors, all of them. Violent crimes are less than half now what they were back then, that includes mass shootings. So all evidence suggests that you're wrong, and an idiot.

She's annoyingly thick but I don't want her to be unhappy.
I've helped neighbours through bereavement, the believers cope as badly as the rest of us. Hopefully she'll find solace some day.
