Wait sorry one more comment,we are Intolerant,WHAT,your the haters,your the ones who go around with your filthy mouth cursing God,call a doctor quick your head is spinning and your spitting green slime...
Yes intolerant, to the extent of over 800 million deaths/murders/genocides in the name of gods, that’s 10 times the amount you try assigning to atheism and of course you ignore the facts that several of the supposed atheist you accuse of genocide were actually christians or christian educated

Don’t give me that BS about atheist haters. I have born the brunt of christian hatred since I was a child. Hounded out of church for being different, spat on by christians for my choices, the attempted murder of my children by christians and my injury by christian bombers. Never ever have I had an atheist try and mock, injure or kill me or my children so don’t; give me any of that hater sh|t

Honey you have chosen the wrong person to vomit you lies over, I realise you are quite new here so you are excused but be aware that if you consider facts and truth to be hatred then that’s entirely up to you but don’t be upset when you stick your foot in your mouth

I know you don’t know, that’s why I gave you the answer to the question you asked. Or perhaps you want the answer in joules or perhaps you want it breaking down to the various tykes of radiation? So does this include negative energy?
As I said – about 46 billion light years, this is the standard scientific observation of the size of the observable universe. You can uses the 13,8 billion years age of the universe and the Hubble constant to work this out if your gun scope is not powerful enough to see that far. Recent measurements have shown that space (other than effects of gravitonal lensing) is not curved so it follows space is infinite. That does not mean that the energy/matter resulting from the BB 13.8 Billion years ago is infinite, only that the volume it can expand into is infinite. There is also (at least mathematically) the possibility of an infinite number of infinite such spatial volumes but I advise you don’t even think about that, you have a hared enough time with the origins of your chistmas.
Like I said, no one knows the size of the universe, except ChristineM from Topix.com .

Imagine that.
You have not named the god your were discussing and there are over 3700 such gods in various mythologies. I have asked you before why you should consider me a mind reader and so far that is yet another question you are completely at a loss to answer.
I have told you which god I believe in a thousand times.

I have no god to name, God doesn't have a name.

To be clear and avoid any further confusion, I believe in God, the one from the Christian Bible.

Dumb ass.

Tell me when did science invent skin, was it 300 or 400 thousand years ago? oh hang on, skin goes back a lot further than humans, how about in the Triassic – nope further back …
Sorry buddy there was no science in prehistoric times
However I suggest you re-read my post, notice “It did however provide methods and techniques to prepare whatever basic materials, wool, oil etc”
Science has enabled the genetic modification of sheep to provide more abundant, more easily processed wool
lol

There it is again.

Science gave us wool.

Seriously, I want to call him and thank him.

Wool is awesome.

Thanks you, Science!

How 'bout this one.
Gays think the christian church hates them because they espouse the doctrine that homosexuality is a grave sin, punishable eternally, when all other sins are matters of choice, while the person who is gay was likely born gay, and that is no different than being punished eternally for being born with a deformed limb.
How is that any different than Christians believing they are hated by non-Christians because they espouse that your beliefs are wrong?

A few posts above someone (I assume Christian) espoused that hopefully other countries will soon follow Uganda in imprisoning gays for life...is that hatred? What if a non-Christian espoused...imprison Christians for life...would that be hatred?

You cannot prove any such thing.

And if you could, you would not be disproving a creator god.

Those are not facts you offer.

They are musings - products of your silly ass arrogance.

Your small bit of education has served to make you an arrogant, know-it-all, bumbling bundle of crap.

And he made opium and allows drug abuse
And he allows child murder, human trafficking, slavery and genocide, Oh wait a moment, yes the babble does condone child murder, human trafficking, slavery and genocide either by your god or in the name of your god
Are you saying that Hitler was a mishap?

First the Holy Spirit has been with us since the day of Pentecost,so I guess your translation of Revelation 19:6 is wrong,but the devils followers have never got anything right yet,but you never will get it right,also you never answered my question wise one,why are there still monkeys,I got it,they were last in line so poor things couldn't become human.You are the one who ignores facts.Revelation19:6 speaks of Gods judgements,and that He reigns,yea you need to read that,I'm thinking it might do you some good.Alleluia for The Lord God Omnipotent reigns that is Revelation 19:6

That was love then, right - gratuitously associating evil incarnate with homosexuality? Riverside Redneck might like to know which scripture you based that on.
I'd like to know who taught you to think like that, or to post such things. What was the source? My guess would be the church, both directly and indirectly.
But perhaps I am mistaken. Maybe you got that from Major League Baseball. Or from watching Two and a Half Men. Or maybe it was on a flyer from Domino's Pizza.
But the bible does have scripture on the subject matter. But we know through the biblical scripture that one of Noah’s son was a homosexual. He was saved because he obeyed and got into the Ark for refuge. After the flood he reverted back into his sinful ways. Then there’s the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.

There’s many who take the scripture and try to justify homosexuality. Of course I’m not going to do that but just show you where the issue comes up in scripture.

1. Genesis 19:5: "And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them."
2. Leviticus 18:22: " Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
3. Leviticus 20:13: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
4. Deuteronomy 23:17: " There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel."
5. Judges 19:22: "Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, the old man, saying, Bring forth the man that came into thine house, that we may know him."
6. 1 Kings 14:24: "And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel."
7. 1 Kings 15:12: "And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made."
8. 1 Kings 22:46: "And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land."
9. 2 Kings 23:7: "And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove."
10. Romans 1:26-27: "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."
11. 1 Corinthian 6:9: "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind."
12. 1 Timothy 1:9:10: "Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;"
