More accurately, you are atheist with respect to all gods other than your own personal god.
Is that the good ole atheist act of squinting the eyes tight, fingers in the ears going "LA LA LA"?

An atheist is not a person that believes in God, plain & simple.(or any god for that matter)

However... I shall indulge your desire to comprehend homosexuality among living species on our planet.
10-12% of ALL humans are homosexual. And this goes back to the beginning of time.
Take the time to read the entire article.

I didn't say that people aren't homosexual, did I?

I used your version of logic to say that they aren't born that way - any more than people are born religious...

I'm a person.

Would that just be God, or god, or gods?

I bet you don't believe in the same god that most christians believe in.

Talk about oversimplification. One is either for freedom or against it? You are for every freedom of every description? Want to restate that maybe?
I’m for freedom based on the United States Constitution.

Ah. You must mean in it's current form then, and according to your interpretation of it. Kinda like Christians have their favorite version of the Bible and what they want it to say?

Again, if God's murder rate is less than your arbitrary definition of modern warfare, then God's murders are OK? By that logic, we can determine that the slaughter of the Hugenot by the Catholics in France was morally OK because the death rate was lower than WW2. WTF?
<quoted text>
Obviously you've never read the Bible.
Read Revelation 17th chapter and ask yourself who is this great wh*re the bible is talking about.
Many theologians believe it is a religion that the wh#re represents. And this religion is based in Rome. The city of seven hills.
Just something you might want to look at.

So your Alzheimer's tells you babies are born speaking? Sure Dave they are born, cleaned up, wrapped in a blanket and start discussing stock prices with the parents and hospital staff.
I notice you and Buck have both been praising Jesus today and bashing the Catholic Church. Shall we chalk this up to your pillow talk with you caressing his ample man-breasts or have you two found your church for the big day? Have you got Buck his wedding gown yet?

Babies are born with a general trouble alarm. This is how they communicate. Some moms have been able differentiate the difference in the intensity of the cries to mean different things.

Babies also start learning even before they are born.

Boy, you AND Catcher?

The whole sentence was "An atheist is not a person that believes in God".

It seems you both stopped at "An atheist is not a person".

Sorry Daffy but Dave, the George Burns look alike stated babies come out telling the truth and have to be taught to lie.

It's ok we all know you are really slow witted and are used to it now.

Interesting how you weave the US Constitution into one’s choice of the bible. But there is only one version of the US Constitution that’s relevant to the laws of today.

Point taken that there’s many versions of the Bible. I personally only accept the King James Version and the Amplified Version. Groups have modified the Bible to slant towards their own personal interpretation. I don’t accept every Version in the bible as being authentic to the original manuscripts.

Having said that, there are different versions of the automobile. Some are fast, others economical, luxury versions, open top, closed top, four doors, two doors, three doors. But they all run on tires, have a engine, brakes, steering and will take you from point A to point B.

Some cars drive so smooth and comfortable while others will jar your fillings out. But they’re all automobiles. Different versions but they still fall under the transportation category.

I seriously doubt you would insult anyone in person like you do hiding behind a computer. Hiding behind your stage name make you feel far more empowered than you really are in person. In reality you are probably a freaking coward.

How do I know this? Because that's how cowards act. You personify what cowardice is and what it stands for. Don’t let me rain on your parade. Your free to continue on acting like a coward. We expect nothing less from you.
