Show me demonstrable proof that wishing on a star, if you really believe in fairies, was not answered.

The sun doesn't "set", unless you believe something causes it to. It does come into and out of view view in a relatively set pattern.

Your view of it is slave to to its position. Your use of the term set is archaic, and is indicative of an assumption you are the center of the universe.

Your deficiency in understanding the English language has evidently affected your world view and logic system. You dumb shit.

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.

It is YOUR assertion that, and I quote "Number one....prayers are NEVER answered... "
If you can't provide evidence for that, then it's only your opinion.
So which is it? Fact or opinion?
The number of prayers "answered" in any way is less than doing nothing, according to statistics. Not that you'd care or even actually accept that fact.

Alright, let's compare:

1. Christians think this entire universe was "created" for them, that's egotistical and self-centered, lots of false pride there actually.

2. Christians think humans are "unique," ignoring the fact they cannot show how, which makes them egotistical and self-centered, even more false pride.

3. Christians think that the Earth is the only place in a vast universe that CAN have life, overflowing with arrogance already we can chalk this up to just being self-centered.

Atheists, we don't believe any of that nonsense, we admit, rather often, that this world is but a grain of sand on the beach that is the universe, we are not unique, we are animals. So .... how are we more arrogant than you?

The world needs people to wash dishes, collect trash, scrub toilets and dig ditches too, so we see there are plenty of roles for someone on your level.

Now are we including minor accidents like him bumping his head getting out of a car Magooing around?

I'd also like the odds on how many fingers he will chop off himself in the next few years?

If you were smart, you'd know that nobody is smart because of a belief system.

But you're not smart, you're just an atheist parrot with the power of google.
