Catcher, you know long ago I voiced a suspicion based upon your online persona and performance coupled with experience and intuition that you are actually some uber liberal California dowager play acting. Your expressed thought and communicative processes are not commensurate with your claimed profession and skill level.
When are you going to fess up?
Admit it, you are a celebrity actress who sells stuff on QVC nowadays.
Busted!!

I knew you were a modern Sherlock Holmes.

That's very nice.
But what he said is that there's no evidence of a god.
If you depose the witnesses they will all say God is real. If its a hoax, why hasn't something been done about it?.......to wit.....Then he addressed the Sanhedrin:“Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. 36 Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. 37 After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. 38 Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. 39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

You can't be Joan Rivers, she is too sharp to play that dumb. Suzanne Somers? I don't pick that up, either.

Maybe you are just some Hollywood producer's wife, or ex-wife.

In a controversial decision, the Oklahoma government authorized a Ten Commandments monument on the Capitol grounds. The Satanic Temple has now submitted an application to place a seven-foot statue of Satan (depicted as goat-headed, with wings and horns) on the Capitol grounds. The applicants explain that the monument is intended to be a historical marker celebrating the scapegoats, marginalized and demonized minorities, and a symbol of religious freedom.

Who thinks both monuments should be permitted, and why? Who thinks neither should be permitted? Who thinks one should be allowed, and the other not, and why?

Scientists have not been able to cause it to occur even under highly managed conditions, nor has it been observed in the history of human record keeping.

It is not a religious monument, it is a political statement as explained by the applicants. There will have to be issues resolved about freedom of expression and suitability of the venue for that expression. As a political statement, and not a religious expression it may be restricted to areas set aside for demonstrations.

The Ten Commandments are moral codes already ingrained in our culture and adapted even in secular humanism, so is not necessarily religious, per se. You do claim morality can be had without religion.

They should have gone the public art route.

The Satanists just want to troll around and cause trouble. They don't really want a statue of Satan.

I say vote on it.

She died August 20, 2012. I liked her and Joan Rivers.

Catcher couldn't be her for the same reason he couldn't be Joan, notwithstanding the existential issue.

They should have gone the public art route.

The nation’s largest police union is blasting President Obama for choosing an attorney who defended a cop murderer—and member of the radical Black Panthers—to head a key division at the Justice Department, the agency responsible for enforcing the law and defending the interests of the United States.

Obama’s nominee to be Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice (DOJ), Debo Adegbile, spent more than a decade in various leadership positions—including director—at the Legal Defense and Education Fund of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). During Adegbile’s leadership the NAACP volunteered its services to represent Mumia Abu-Jamal, a member of the Black Panthers who murdered a police officer (Daniel Faulkner) in Philadelphia three decades ago.

Abu-Jamal was sentenced to death by the jury that convicted him in 1982 and his supporters—including the man who could soon be an Assistant Attorney General—have long claimed that he was the victim of a racist legal system. Nevertheless, Abu-Jamal has lost multiple appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court has twice rejected his case. In 2012, under the leadership of Adegbile, the NAACP’s Legal Defense and Education Fund represented Abu-Jamal in his latest appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The cop murderer lost that one too, but the fact remains that Adegbile continues fighting on his behalf.

Oh, here is the link to the New York Times article highlighting the legally documented proof, compiled by government sources, that the Nazis planned to eradicate christianity.
Since I'm not their to rub your face in it, I will have to "visualize" it. You know, like Dave mentioned about visualizing something as infinite, then you lied about what he said.
