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.

History

The concept of radian measure, as opposed to the degree of an angle, is normally credited to Roger Cotes in 1714.[1] He had the radian in everything but name, and he recognized its naturalness as a unit of angular measure. The idea of measuring angles by the length of the arc was used already by other mathematicians. For example al-Kashi (c. 1400) used so-called diameter parts as units where one diameter part was 1/60 radian and they also used sexagesimal subunits of the diameter part.[2]

The term radian first appeared in print on 5 June 1873, in examination questions set by James Thomson (brother of Lord Kelvin) at Queen's College, Belfast. He used the term as early as 1871, while in 1869, Thomas Muir, then of the University of St Andrews,

vacillated between rad, radial and radian. In 1874, Muir adopted radian after a consultation with James Thomson.[3][4][5]

I think coined word "Radian goes way further back to Persian ... i could be wrong.

The Seventh Judicial Circuit of the Court of Appeals of the United States held that ATHEISM IS A RELIGION. Therefore, it cannot be promoted by a public school. Currently, public schools are often unwittingly promoting atheism through a dogmatic and uncritical teaching of materialistic theories of origins.

What can be proven is that the biblical god, Yahweh, does not and never did exist.l The authority for the existence of the biblical god is the story of Moses in the Book of Exodus. There God is said to have given Moses the Ten Commandments plus a lot of additional advice. But the biblical Moses could not have existed. The story in Exodus tells of how Joshua, Moses' successor, conquered Canaan around 1441 BCE (if you believe I Kings 6:1) or around 1263/2 BCE (if you believe Exodus 1:11).

But that is simply impossible because all of Canaan was under direct and continuous Egyptian control from 1550 BCE (when the Egyptians conquered Canaan) until 1141 BCE when Rameses VI withdrew Egyptian troops from Canaan to put down civil unrest in Egypt. There are numerous Egyptian records (such as the Amarna Letters) that tell about their control of Canaan during that period. If there were no conquest of Canaan, then there could have been no Exodus. And, if there were no Exodus, there would have been no Moses. And, if there were no Moses, there would have been no Yahweh handing out the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai (or Mount Horeb). I's really very simple.

You would like to think so.
Marriage was only between men and women when the Constitution was written. Period. No expectation it would ever be anything else. Marriage laws are up to the individual states.
There is no Constitutional right to same sex marriage on the Federal level.
Just like gays, coming in the back door to get what they want. Even if they have to pervert the Constitution. Again, you would have to pervert the 14th amendment to even get a foot in the door on that one.
The Constitution doesn't stipulate that marriage is between a man and a woman. The Fed would be free and clear of the issue if the tax code did not recognize some married couples but not others. Since the Fed does that, the only way to rectify it once and for all is to amend the Constitution, one way or the other. Make it clear.

Oh, yeah. I remember digging up all the posts and reposting them to show the lie the psycho witch of the west was telling a year later. All the posts. You bought that, eh? There were no pickups in it at all. I had noticed the ISP she had forgotten to hide, and which I told her about. Same ISP as SK. That was her cue to say I was trying to pick "him" up.

I picked up she wasn't a 14 year old boy in about 2 posts.

All the while she had all of her atheist buddies cheering this 14 year old kid taking on old Dave. They were so impressed with "his" intelligence. Some really fawned over "him'.

I am sure she received many PM from "admirers". Were you one of them, Aura?

SK is about as psychotic as they get, and it's very hard to miss. Yet she still has fans among her atheist buddies. Amazing.

I had given you credit for being a cut above the rest of these idiots. My mistake.

Many women take out the trash. Many men change diapers. Many men cook. Most women have jobs. None of those are particularly male or female jobs: they simply need to get done any anyone can do them.
Very few activities actually require a particular set of genitals.
My daughter was born a coupla months after my accident. I learned to change a diaper in less that a minute - one-handed.
Oh, and I can tie little baby shoelaces, while they're on little baby feet. One-handed.
