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.

Equating them to traveling evangelists? The irony ...
Pretty sure most researchers are motivated by learning the the truth, plain, simple turth. Highly doubt such a contraversial hypothesis is something they plan on making their millions from.
I’m sure they appreciate your position. As they enjoy their luxury cars, planes, homes and over the top vacations.

These good ole boys have found a willing cow to milk and they are going to milk it for all it’s worth.

Like they always say a fool is born everyday. And them fools got money, ha ha ha ha.

My hat is off to those boys and I wish them well.[tipping hat].

You brought up the gay parade thing as a way to ridicule a poster.
That, in my view, is unacceptable and shameful.
Ridicule a poster? Well....I......never [covering mouth].

My goodness the thought of ridiculing a poster is just beyond me…[shocked].

Let me catch my breath.[exhaling slowly].

Now my good friend I have sinned in my life and done things I shouldn’t have done.

But who among us has not ridiculed a poster?

Who among us are so pure in spirit and never has offended anyone?

You have driven a stake through my heart and have caused me much pain. I just don’t know if I can go on any longer.
If it had been anyone else I wouldn’t care. But it was you my loyal and faithful friend.

The closest ones to you always hurt the most. And you have hurt me dearly by beloved friend.

It seems to me you know a little too much how the mind of a con artist works. Projecting much?

<quoted text>Actually a full growe male elephant weights about 15,000 lbs, so a pair would be about 30,000 lbs. Add two hippos at 3,000 each, two Rhinos at 2,000 each, a couple of Grizzly bears at 1,600 each, two polar bears about 3,000 each, and a couple of Giraffe's at a combine weight of 4,330, and you get something in the order of 46,930 Tons of animals. This being a partial list and no food factored in. A whale is a mammal, does it mention whales NOT being on the ark? So lets slip aboard the largest mammal on earth, the Blue whale. 100 feet long and weighing 300,000 pounds each.
46,900 Tons?

Where in the hell do you get those kinds of numbers?

Cold and hot must be the same thing, since one can be converted to the other like snow and water, and in exactly the same way: by warming.
You seafaring sorts - you, Macumazahn and Aura have been doing a bang up job on the nautical stuff. I've learned from you all, and have even been motivated to learn a little more on my own: masts, yards, spars, gaffs and booms, for starters. And square rigging vs. fore-and-aft (windjammers vs. schooners, bermuda rigged vs. gaff rigged) as well as a few types of sails (spankers, spinnakers, jibs and lateen). It began with somebody's comments about the difference between boat and a ship.
Laffin. I'm maybe 30 years out of practice, except for kayaks. Oh, I can still make-and-mend a trawl net, tie a running bowline, and send and receive Morse code.
Splicing's come in handy a time or two.

2 You shall take with you of every clean animal by sevens, a male and his female; and of the animals that are not clean two, a male and his female;
3 also of the birds of the sky, by sevens, male and female, to keep offspring alive on the face of all the earth.

19 "And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.

I would like to draw to the attention of our Topix atheist cargomasters, shipbuilders, and meteorological experts that this Noah event did happen fairly early in the development of man as recorded in that book. Please refer to the giants, sons of god, etc. There records there were only 200 watchers, and apparently settled where man started.

Which would infer there was no global population as yet. Or animal population, either. That expansion seems to come later from this point of origination.

I doubt if our experts will understand the significance of such in devising their calculations in order to discredit such story. The world may not have been so global as yet. Which would not require the globe to be flooded, just the world.

You know, I have never told anyone here to ever to go to hell.

You never had any respect for me or anyone else outside your belief system.

For a man who makes claims he would never sentence someone to death.

Your pretty liberal with sending someone to a place of eternal torment.

I want you to know something. I still love you from my heart even though you hate me. Because I love people even if they don’t see eye to eye with me on every issue.

But you may hate and despise as you wish. Even though you have offended others many times with your harsh criticism. It’s called hypocrisy. Holding others to a standard you can’t keep yourself.

You need to take a deep look inside Sir.

He is such a card. He's going to the hood as a Klu Kluxer. He knows they will appreciate his sense of humor.
