The sad thing is you can tell he really thinks he's being so clever and revolutionary with his pie in the sky talk.

If only he didn't have such a hatred of learning from books?

It's not religious it's just really silly and not even an NDE. You were knocked out Dave not near death.

But them again you abhor people reading books as you admitted and instead say people should learn from hurting themselves as you have.

To demonstrate how sharp the Topix atheist mind is.
I have posted my NDE at least 3 or 4 times over the last couple of years. Wasn't exactly one that you could call a religiously inspired one. Not that such stopped Topix atheists from ranting about how I'm such a godbot and fundamentalist,yada, yada, yada.
Not a one of them took note of the fact I didn't cry out to a higher power to come get me.
Topix atheists have mental issues with obsession. paranoia, and projection.

I believe that most theists have an allergy to facts. That's my hypothesis, now I can't prove it yet, but I'm close to accumulating enough evidence to submit for peer review at this point.

That reflects your weakness of youth and immaturity.

You don't learn from books, you becomes acquainted with things. Then you learn by thinking and applying. That is how you gain knowledge. Otherwise you are an encyclopedia of useless knowledge.

You may understand if you grow up.

You have this propensity of expressing knowledge of things as an expert without the necessity of being there or having experience in such matters.

Such personalities are called bullshitters. In your case we can call it puppypooping.

Yes we learn from books oh senile one. Your way if learning which as you admitted comes from hurting yourself is insane. A child touches a hot stove and gets burned.

The lesson is don't do that again! Would you suggest teaching children by your is
Des of no books and using injuring them instead?

Dave you have lost it.

I agree sort of...

TopixBibleThumpers™ are indeed allergic to facts and severely challenged by reality.

JesusRoaches™ on the other hand are too delusional and obtuse to consider.

Most theists keep it to themselves like good little sheep should!

?

Have you taken your medication yet?

Hydrochloric acid and tablespoons as some sort of example in support of your argument. Yeah, that was real good.

Will reading a book experience you with how it is to be burned?

Again, you reveal your lack of understanding of what you "know", or ability to think.

Try reading that post again a few times. And read my previous response to KK.

David religiously follows his Gods instructions. ;)

I find this verse appropriate.

Heh heh.

I do have to say that Topix atheists are humorous. Not bright, but humorous.

They get on here and expect everyone, including moi, to believe their book learning, whose books they believe were written by human gods, trumps the personal experiences of those they are trying to convert.

Topix atheists don't get on here because they are intellectuals or looking to discuss the subject in an intellectual fashion. That is why you see the same scripts and same rants over and over and over and over.

They are disaffected people who got sucked into being used by an ideology. Again, you can tell by the scripts.

Mean and bitter because they can't find peace, and damned if they will let others have it. Say you have found peace of mind in your religion and see what happens if you don't believe me. That's all one has to say and they will go ape shit.

They most all seem to have one thing in common, and that is a literal mind, just like the fundamentalists they try to paint any theist or deist as. It's knee jerk.

If they can start thinking in allegorical fashion maybe a light will come on in them.

The simple fact is that you can believe you exist, I mean it all seems pretty real, but if you can really think in the abstract, you realize it is all an illusion of some kind, even if you believe in the Big Bang and evolution. Being flash in the pans is a universal concept. One of the biggest illusions of all is the belief that science will save your ass. This illusion came about because of the rapid developments in technology and shows like Star Trek. The 1800's were a bit like that, too. People get caught up in Utopian visions.

Topix atheists need to get into touch with themselves and find out who they really are, and not what they think they want to be. Build your life from there, and the hell with those that use your issues to their advantage. Take the manufactured by stickers off their brains and souls.

Books are a tremendous asset in human learning Dave. You before clearly stated that books were not useful for learning but hurting yourself was.

Dave says: books bad- injuring yourself good.not just injuring mind you but breaking things on your body! Dave your upcoming broken hip will not teach you much. A book on the scientific process would.

Dave. Honestly. You are unable to understand yourself or even basic concepts like a near death experience requires being near death not just knocked loopy.

That being proven you really shouldn't claim to understand and explain what topix atheists or anyone for that matter do or think, seeing as how you are unable to properly explain even yourself.
