Saturn is a god? Is that the god you're always going on about? I thought it was a planet. Weird.
No.

Saturn is the god Christine celebrates around Christmas time.

Strange act for an atheist....

Homosexuality was outlawed in the Roman third century social crisis due to effects on the civilization. Too many twinkies seeking fortune the easy way versus macho men the hard way. These were instituted under Romans that were persecuting Christians fairly vigorously.

That led to such actions.
The network of homosexuals and homosexual predators that took root in the Catholic Church over the centuries also corrupted and weakened it. The religion didn't create them, they just took advantage of the power and burrowed into it.
Burrowed into it?

Like, just shoved themselves right up in there?

Bwaha.

And science proved both statements with mathematics.

Maybe E=MC2 also proves that Christine's thoughts move at half the speed of smell.

That was satire from Catcher.
Tell Gym atheism is not disbelief.

I would, but I'm boycotting him.

I think conversing with such a fool is bad karma.

But you don't believe in karma. It might be bad karma for you, too. But you would not know it.

You would just think you ate some bad tamales by random accident, not by divine providence.

With Christmas around the corner. I believe it is wrong for Government property to display Christmas décor including nativity scenes. Government should not promote Christmas. However it’s a traditional holiday in this country and it should remain so for government employees.

Government doesn’t do this like it did 40 years ago. So progress has been made. We do need separation from Church and State.

When I say separation I’m not talking about the relinquishing individual religious rights and freedom. For example a student at a public school wearing a Christmas theme shirt or blouse shouldn’t be expelled from school or disciplined. But these kinds of extremes we are seeing these days. And everyone should be challenged in Court.

"The report raises concerns that the relaxation of restrictions on marijuana, which can now be sold legally in 20 states and the District of Columbia, has been influencing use of the drug among teenagers. Health officials are concerned by the steady increase and point to what they say is a growing body of evidence that adolescent brains, which are still developing, are susceptible to subtle changes caused by marijuana."

“There is this idea that cannabis is a harmless drug,” he added,“and these findings question that.”

That is science saying that, not just old Dave.

You're saying government should not promote Christmas by displaying nativity scenes.

But government observes Christmas as a federal holiday.

That is promoting it.

And there's nothing wrong at all with government promoting it.

Our government chiseled biblical verses all over the capital.

There is no constitutional barrier to promoting religion in general, or Christianity in particular.

There are two posts dated 2010 at the bottom of page 354, 10 posts dated 2010 on page 355. Now, assuming you can add those figures (I'm beginning to have my doubts) you will have 12 posts for all of 2010. You have elevated misinterpretation to high art.

If anyone wonders what we're talking about, save for twelve posts, the entire year 2010 has been erased from this thread.

Some interesting insights in that.

Had to laugh when she described a technique where she wanted immediate impressions instead of thinking about it. I can picture her hypnotizing a Topic atheist and getting into their mind, and then asking what they saw.

"Oh, nothing" would have to be a consistent reply.

Get on board, Buck, you can do it.

Institutions evolve.

Women couldn't be voters not too long ago.

Be on the right side of history.

You'll end up happier that way.
