I thought you were more intelligent than using an argument form popularity, guess not. 98% of the world-wie populate thought the earth was flat, they were WRONG...see I can do it to.
Other than that, when you can put together a coherent thought, let me know!!
Lunatic logic.

98% wrong, their 2% right.

They just don't understand, eh?

That 98% keeps producing the babies, and life goes on.

MacDonald's and your brand of atheism started about the same time.

A religion isn't merely a supernatural belief. A religion can be anything you deem important enough to influence your worldview.
Well... sure. If you want to play it that way, why not?

By **that** loose definition? Football is religion.

So is American Idol.

So is American Politics.

And so is McDonald's....

... in fact?

The eating of **cheese**, according to **your** nebulous "definition" is now a religion.

Can I get a tax exemption on all my cheese now that it's a religion?

:D

For some, sports is a religion, for others it's music. Science can be embraced as a religion, and indeed many such as Dawkins and yourself do. Dawkins has gone so far as to say that anyone who isn't interested in science can "fuck off."
Oh, I see you agree with me.

Aren't you worried that by diluting the meanings of words, they lose all usefulness?

Once "religion" has no **useful** meaning? What word will be substituted for it next?

Want some tax-exempt cheese?

:D

See above. Delusions are not proof. Writing about delusions does not magically transform them into proof.

Indeed-- brain damage is strong among the deeply religious.

The more religious they are? The more damaged their brains have become.

You are a border-line case, I suspect-- you can manage to function at a high level for most things.

But when it comes to religion? The damage becomes evident.
Robert Stevens wrote:
As I previously stated, I am note attempting to recruit you. You have your reality and I have mine. Amen.
See? The damage is strong when you write about your religion-- it even makes you write typographical mistakes.

Why?

BECAUSE YOU DARE NOT RE-EVALUATE YOUR FAITH VERY CLOSELY.

Or you would see how WRONG it really is...!

!!!

Amazing how that works, isn't it?

In addition before I do my morning chores.

Buckethead is the age of yours or mine eldest sons. He is a product of us and his peers. If you are a normal person you can hear the sounds of life in his songs, from mustang herds, Kansas storms, background noises at parks, and even the way his aunt talked. All incorporated into his compositions. He is a natural musical genius. His compositions resonate with people.

What do you have? The same old boring one and uh two and a uh three you were TRAINED was right and the only RIGHT music. Then like a tired ass old dinosaur you degrade him and others with talent you ain't got.

He can create imagery in your mind you can't come close to because you are so hidebound and antiquated.

You are a creature of the books you read, just like any fundie.

You make me want to puke.

I have no idea who you were talking of-- but it's quite evident that you **hate**(or hated) him very, very much.

That is sad-- he likely never realized you even existed.

So your hate did him no harm at all-- it only eats away at YOU.

Making you into the bitter, hateful person you are today.

I must admit, though?

You haven't called me a filthy name in a day or so...

Indeed-- I agree: faith is **literally** eating away at your sanity.

Seriously---- every time you write about your faith?

The evil, ugly nature of that faith oozes through the cracks into the foreground.

Your brain damage is quite evident-- the **only** time you appear a little bit sane, is when you are NOT talking about your faith.

So you are likely correct.

Belittling, you say.
Yes. Your scathing tone. Your sarcasm. Your frequent use of ugly names for me.

Your patronizing attempt to make me appear less than human.

That is what I was writing of. You do it all the time-- it appears to be unconscious with you too.

That is sad-- you are so deeply into your hate, that you cannot even see when it surfaces!
Robert Stevens wrote:
I just tell you what you belief is your reality. If you find that belittling, perhaps you should find more optimistic beliefs.
I have **no** beliefs-- not how **you** mean it.

I **do** have things I hold dear-- of which I've not written in several years.

I **used** to write what I thought was valuable--but the trash-talk from you True Believers™ showed me it just wasn't worth the bother.

You see: there are two kinds of faith:

Faith in things/events for which there is NO EVIDENCE

And faith in things/events for which there IS.

And your faith? Is pretty much all of the former, and little of the latter.

I'm not upset: I pity you.

I really do-- to harbor such hate for people you've never met, as you do?

That must make for a miserable life-- why ELSE would you delight at calling people filthy names?

That isn't Buckethead, but another group that could invoke imagery. Takes almost a minute for the first song to crank up. Picture a raid by desert horsemen. The other songs are very good, too.

You may want to look into your last sentence. As I said before God is there you choose to overlook him r her and deny. Miracles do happen everyday, as is everyday a miracle. I guess not seein it is upsetting.
No missing arms or legs regrown-- EVER.

Not in the entire history of the planet-- not even in your ugly BuyBull(bible).

But **science**? In which you place such little faith?

Science **will** figure out how to replace those limbs that your DO-NOTHING GOD cannot seem to.

It does appear your god is SO FEEBLE, that he lacks the magic "God Juice" to regrow arms, legs, eyes, ears, etc.

Not much of a god, is it?

But good enough for the likes of YOU, I see.

So what?

The whole idea of "soul" is simply a creation to soothe massively bloated EGOS.

That's it.

Humans have had an EGO problem for thousands of years-- this is not news.

Correct.

It appears that the various gods of True Believers™ have all run out of magic "God Juice", and are no longer able to perform.

Perhaps they need to look into some God Viagra™?

In the late 1700's there was, for a while, a sort of fad belief about these so called souls. Doctors noticed that when that last sighing breath occurred, the patient died. They thought the soul escaped the body when the lungs released the last of the life force - air.
To keep body and soul together for a chance at survival, the doctor would clamp one hand over the mouth of the sick person and firmly pinch the nostrils together with the other hand. They thought this would keep a person's soul inside and the person would live some more, they may have also thought that, with practice, a person could live a long, long time.
Just an example of what happens when you mix science and religion....a clusterfluck;0)
Also an example of why it's really bad practice, to permit medical profession to put their god above the needs of their patients...
