They are keeping his head stuck up there. Maybe lots of KY and a serious tug on his shoulders might improve his outlook.

What is a true christian church? Most sects believe that all other sects are not christian; until they need them heathens to inflate their numbers!

There is no true christian.

MCDonalds is 20 miles away. Christian churches a half mile or so.

Don't go to either.

We can show that certain meteors are from Mars by comparing the chemical composition. Different planets (and asteroids) have different isotopic abundances and we can fairly easily determine the origin of some meteors from that. So the age of meteors from Mars together with the age of the solar system (as determined in other ways) does give an age for Mars. Are there uncertainties? Yes, of course. There always are. All scientific measurements come with error bars. So the age of Mars is 4.6+-.1 billion years.
I posted all of this information for him, a number of times. Its has become painfully obvious that he is incapable of learning. Personally, I don't think he understands the principle behind any of the sciences.

Your rationality is affected by some deeper issues as exemplified by your passion on the subject.
Those special moments will come to a screeching halt. You might not even have the opportunity to realize how insignificant they truly were.
So, tell me, how is it going now that you have entered the Previously Important Person phase of your existence?
Oh, and in regards to your music criticism. It is most fortunate for the vast majority of humans that we are not under your influence like those in your previous important person phase, and thus be forced to appreciate your aesthetic values and determinations of what is special and what is not.
Have a nice day.:-)
You seem to think that displaying passion is somehow evidence of some kind of disfunction. I guess that emotion is an uncommon occurrence in the mechanical mind. Sorry you are so....incomplete.

The "important person" phase of my existence had been going on since I was basically a teenager. So for quite some time now, thanks for asking!!!

You may listen to any music you care to, I could give two shits what you find entertaining. I was simply commenting on the childlike and vapid nature of that particular piece of music.

It is said that you can tell a lot about a society by its architecture and art forms. It appears you would be perfectly happy in a society of mud huts and childlike scrawling on the walls. It takes a certain level of intelligence to listen to complex music. The intellect is key in understanding and thereby appreciating complex music. If you simply listen of "ear candy" then vapid, transparent music is fine for you and millions more. There are however, a substantial number of those who demand more, who enjoy the journey, who revel in the complex fabric, who have the ability to follow the melodic and harmonic threads and realize there destinations. With your machine like mind you could never experience these moments, so better you stick to your vapid and transparent music. Leave the heavy lifting to creative mind. And thanks, you have a nice day also.....

Yeah, I imagine it would be tough at times being a professional welfare recipient.
At least you take a step up in life every week when you are called up to the counter at social security.

All Christian religions have some commonalty. The believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. And they believe in the Constitution and the Bill of rights. The right to freedom of religion.

Your statement,“Most sects believe that all other sects are not christian;” This happens to be not true as you are prone to make untrue claims.

There are doctrinal differences between different Christian religions but they all believe in Christ.

Subhuman. Nice. Makes you superior, right?
Gee, and you don't even believe in a Hell.
You got issues.
Yep, I have serious issues with people I don't even know wishing me eternal torture. Ahh, Christians, what a warm and loving bunch!!!!

Most Christians think that a majority of Atheist are as**oles. That’s another thing we all have in common. When I read your post that shores up my position on Atheist.(Shoring up is a Naval term, I got from ROTC).
