Perhaps you are related to Nimrod? Just wondering!<quoted text>
1a. Extremely wealthy sheikhs from Saudi Arabia come here. They are the only ones who can afford the over-priced US medical care. If you only make middle-class wages, you can't afford US healthcare from the capitalistic healthcare industry.
1b. And how come US citizens go to Canada for healthcare?
2. Huff Post? No. Why do you ask? My information came from a ranking by the World Health Organization in the year 2000. Here is a discussion on Wikipedia:
Here is the actual World Health Organization report in the year 2000:
2a. But, you cry -- that information is SO dated! Okay, here is an article in January 2013, which discusses that, among 17 nations, the US is generally "dead last" (excuse the pun) in a) death from all causes, b) highest death rate from violence, c) highest death rate from car accidents, d) highest chance a child will die by age 5, e) second highest death rate from coronary disease, f) second highest death rate from lung disease, g) highest teen pregnancy rate, and h) highest rate of women dying due to complications of pregnancy and childbirth.
Ah, yes! Ain't American healthcare grand!(The Atlantic magazine is a conservative-leaning publication.)
3. You "heard today" that atheists "worship themselves"? Ah, hahahahahahaha! As "gods"? Take off your black opaque glasses, "Norton"! Your ability to see the real world does not exist. I know you think that I am brilliant, but I am not a "god." (Nor even an idol.) It is not necessary for you to bow when you come into my presence on this Topix thread.(However, you may if you wish.)
4. Why do I quote scripture? To show you absolutely that your thinking is often wrong.(One rule of good communication is to use examples known by your listener. Thus, I cite the Bible to show you how far wrong your are. Would you prefer, perhaps, that I quote Darwin?)
5. I note that you were not "Raptured" yesterday.(And I have often noted that Jesus promised his disciples that he would return in their lifetimes. He is only 2000 years late on that promise.)
