Facts are what you imagine them to be, sweetness. You can supply plenty of them for yourself.
After all, what is the difference between what you dream and what you think when awake? Same body taken care of by the same mind.
Nope, fact is fact, imagination has nothing to do with fact and your statement highlights one major limitation of davesworld when compared to reality.

The difference - what you dream you have no control over, a waking thought you have control over and can direct.

I have seen it the difference identified as

A dream is uncontrolled thought.

A thought is a controlled dream.

Say what? Never happened and as far as I can ascertain can never happen. For one you need some intelligence to come up with a witty comment and even more intelligence to come up with a good post.

Certainly most of the godbots I know on here are incapable although there are a few (very few) that can and do

Nope, you do that. You believe in a myth, a nothing.

Think of the definition, how can you blame something that you don’t believe. Of course youe dunning kruger stupidity prevents you seeing the incongruity of your illogical statement.

Same source.

There is plenty of crossover of what you said, so that is not an accurate description.

It has been 50 years since the Supreme Court banned school-sponsored prayer. But God and faith are probably present in more ways now than ever in public school
• "See You at the Pole" began in Texas with 10 Christian students praying around their school flagpole in 1990. It has blossomed into a yearly ritual involving 1 million to 2 million public school students nationwide meeting on a designated September morning before class.
• Informal Bible study groups have proliferated, judging from anecdotal reports, sometimes meeting on campus, sometimes at a coffee shop or someone's home.

You need to grab one of those biblical witches, borrow her broom, and head to the nearest library.

I would say that any supernatural entity does not exist, that religious faith is a serious mind-altering delusion.
You are fixated on a false belief.
The daily news always contains some horrific act committed in the name of some God.

It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to see I am responsible for an increase in electrical activity in Scar's brain, causing bursts of creativity he would otherwise be lacking. Perhaps in time this increase will become a continuous flow.
I have always been good about resurrecting dead machines. Pulled many a dead device out of trash piles and made them live again. I'm a Jesus of the junkpile. Another few jolts and Scar may come to life permanently.

Sure.

"And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the Lord met him, and sought to kill him.
Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.
So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision."

Excuse me, but what the eff is that?

Clunt's misusing Matthew 5:11. The text favours him only if he is abused because of jesus.

I throw abuse at Clunt because he asked for it, and because he's dumb anyway.

So Matthew 5:11 doesn't apply - like it did anyway!
