You think anyone that listens to country music is stupid.

You know I like country music.

Put two and two together there...

I asked a Constitutional question.

You answered in enough detail.

Then you ended with:

"For those who like country music, the answer is yes."

As if I didn't understand your answer.

That was a sneaky way of calling me stupid.

I'm on to you, Feltcher.

I wish i could have anyone of these debaters to help me debate some really noble causes. Fight and never stop the real truth that is tangible to myself and all man kind, There are many to chose from and in any country. We all can agree with something or another that has harmed or offended someone or something we knew or loved. It sure in the Hell was not God or Satan, It is to me Bat man and The joker going at it. Please if you can find any given time i can give you a real truth to debate. Thanks, Just saying. Peace out.

Fair enough.
Some people just can't handle jokes....
But I have not violated the contract. The deal was that if I can't go a day without being uncivil to you (which I haven't been), then I'll leave Topix for a day.
In the honor of fairness (and because I hurt your sensitivities), I'll not post tomorrow.
Unfortunately, you're not credible.

If you don't post tomorrow, it will be for another reason.

Probably a deal with your wife.

I'm onto you, RR.

You just can't help yourself, and can't avoid the wiseass comments you agreed to refrain from.

A post from Skombolis to Bongo.
He "tends to go for the throat".
Nice.

I tend to go for the throat. It's possible your claim had done merit. Sometimes I need some time and space to come back and look at a situation again

<quoted text> Lets take odd and even numbers as it relates to infinity which creates absurdities. If you have an infinite amount of numbers and remove all the even numbers then you would have an infinite amount of odd and even numbers. Infinity minus infinity equals infinity.
If you have an infinite amount of coins and take away the first three. You have infinity minus infinity equals three.
You can subtract infinity from infinity and get any answer from zero to infinity. Does not work in reality and only leads to absurdities.
Your mathematical understanding is superior to Darwin's Stepstool.

And he claims to have taugh calculus.

Infinity is an imaginary idea.

Dagwood thinks it's real.

As far as the universe is concerned , the imaginary concept is that it is finite.
All measures prove it to be false, I know you can't accept it or even understand it.
But that why you cling to your imaginary concepts , such as god and a finite universe.
The universe cannot be infinite. It is impossible.

Nothing that exists can be infinite.

It is an imaginary concept for operations in theoretical math. Real mathematicians like Hilbert, Poincare, and Gauss understood it does not exist in reality.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
I know for a fact that Ahura Mazda exists. First he spoke to me. Then he touched me. Then my prayers to him were answered. That's proof enough for me.
Besides, where did absolute morals come from? If there is such a thing as good or bad, it proves that Ahura Mazda exists. The Avesta tells us so.
Also, everything that has a beginning of its existence has a cause of its existence;
The universe has a beginning of its existence. Therefore, the universe has a cause of its existence. This is further proof of his existence.
Why not believe in Ahura Mazda? We have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Once dead, it's too late. People that were too proud and that wanted to be little Mazdas themselves won't be able to say that they weren't warned.
The greatest trick Angra Mainyu ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
PANGU, obviously is the first god, but does not need worship.

He's dead.

The number of particles in the universe is finite.

No arrangement of finite particles can be infinite.
