Better?
That's still just a summary, not a translation. I don't need you to interpret this, I know you believe interpretations can actually mean something but that's not the case.

They cannot utilize the benefits offered hetero marriages, so no, they cannot legally be married.

Exactly. And we know how effective prayer is.

These clowns expect direct responses to direct requests. Poofing on demand because you requested. Plus they expect it with no payment. Shows the limits of their minds.

They ignore the roundabout ways prayers can get answered. Mostly because they lack the mental wherewithal to recognize such things.
So who is praying for children to starve to death?

Who's praying for childhood leukemia?

Who is praying for birth defects?

Because their prayers seem to be working.

I have.
You should try it.
Must have been a very skinny mountain.

Did you mean a cliff?

Sounds fun. Will you jump with me? No hang gliders or those fancy modern gadgets.

<quoted text>Concluding that "everything we were told as children was a lie" is a belief. You cannot know it for sure, since you cannot even remember everything you were told as a child.

You mis-defined "atheism", but still could not remove the belief.

Atheism is the adoption of a belief. The belief is there is no god.

It is belief in the "no god" position.

It is amazing to watch how dishonest atheists are. They will say their position is "no belief", then proceed to state their belief.
So what?

I believe there is no god.

I don't believe there is a god.

I believe those two statements are essentially equivalent.

Have you ever asked yourself why this seems to be so important to you?

Is your best argument petty semantics?

<quoted text>But that's not a belief, of course. Right?

Just because you said "I believe..."?
At least when an atheist uses the word "believe" or "belief" he implies an element of doubt.

That's a difference between a theist and an atheist.

A theist denies any doubt when he uses those words in reference to his god.

Sure they can. Gender is a role, not a sex. Any twinkie can marry any butch in any state. Likewise femmes with the tops.

You're stupid, and ignorant.

Hey we got an angry bride here! Calm down triple chin.

Dave was knocked loopy he did not have an NDE. An NDE is a hallucination or dream. We can recreate them with in a controlled environment.

Sorry fatass but it's true just like eating all those empty calories is making you fatter.

NDE does not fit into the parameters of hallucination.
You know nothing about the subject.
Even more certain, you know nothing about the physics and physiology occurring in Dave's experience.

Sounds like a threat there at the end there Dave. You know people who suffer head injuries like yourself often have trouble controlling their anger and are a much higher risk of violence.

I am sorry that I learn from studying and not banging my head into the wall because god told me to.

Honestly it doesn't seem to be working out very well for you. Perhaps you should take a nap and rest your brain damage now?

I have read about boxers having crazy dreams or hallucinations when knocked out.

Spiv is a trip. He read about, but hasn't experienced. He learsn from reading, but he ignored the fact I had a dumpt truck and bulldozer come crashing through my driver's door at 40 mph, with me being the center of impact, and being all alone in there for 15 minutes or so hanging upside down, and I was just knocked out like a boxer. Nowhere near death.
Buck, the boy needs a lesson in getting knocked out or a NDE.
