To add insult to injury, they complain about violence on TV after being told about it by someone on TV.
Evening news is where they begin with “Good Evening,” and then proceed to tell you why it isn’t.

What makes you think a diploma has anything to do with being successful and/or happy?
I did earn a high school diploma, nitwit.
Again, your assumptions are getting tiresome and boring.

Well good. Since I have evidence that God is real (and billions of other people have/had, too) then we're done here.
That was easy.
Of what value is evidence when one has faith... REAL faith?

You're making a mockery of Christianity.

It needs as little help with that as it can get.

Please... continue.

That value is that it cures you of your self induced self important hallucination. Because the evidence is that all theists are liars.

Looks like someone thinks I'm a theist.

Hey, Jimmy...

That was a question for a theist.

Theists, especially Christians, are supposed to have faith... ya know?

Why would one need evidence?

What does one's needing evidence indicate about their faith?

Do you understand the question now?

The evidence is real to a theist.

RR said God touched him on the head.

There was a guy on the PTAG thread who claimed God threw a rock at him; hit 'em in the head with it. He kept the rock. What believer wouldn't? At least he has something to share... some evidence.

Gotta wonder...

Why would that guy's god be chucking rocks at him?

Even more perplexing...

Why NOT at RR?!?

I think you have just found definitive proof of the non-existence of god.

I don't about all that.

God, should that one exist, has terrible aim.

Of THAT, we CAN be sure.

That reminded me:-
There is a guy who is playing golf with a priest. While they are on the 10th green the guy misses a three foot putt and says, "God dammit, I missed."

The priest tells him not to use vulgar language on the golf course.

Then on the next hole the guy misses a two foot putt and says again, "God dammit, I missed."

The priest tells him that if he continues to use vulgar language on the golf course, he will have God strike him down with lightning and kill him.

Then on the next hole he misses a one foot putt and says, "God dammit, I missed." All of a sudden a tremendous bolt of lightning comes down and kills the priest! Immediately after, a voice comes out of the clouds and says, "God dammit, I missed."

Yet you argue against them constantly to maintain your delusion.

That's where you lose the right to respect.

There are tons of books and websites aimed at the non scientist that explain these things with great clarity.

Why not read up on some of them before spouting off about how wrong they must be because they don't fit your religious views.

I can think of lots of reasons a god would be throwing ricks at some of his believers.

I would wonder more about why he doesn't throw rocks at more of them.
