Topix atheist choose theme song. It was a tossup between M Jackson we are the world..........Me and all my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing
And there's no way we ever could
Now we see everything that's going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it
So we keep waiting
One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
No, we keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

“Imagine there's no heaven; it's easy if you try
No hell below us, above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today ...
Imagine there's no countries; it isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace....”
~John Lennon (Imagine)

“The man hates superstition but he believes in God.
I think that's inconsistent, I think that's really odd.
When you believe in things that you don't understand then you suffer.
Superstition ain't the way.”

Your recent behavior?

You've regressed recently. A few days break from Topix might do you some good.

CHRISTIE FORCED OUT OF G.O.P. RACE BY EMPATHY SCANDAL

TRENTON (The Borowitz Report)—New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie withdrew from consideration as a Presidential candidate today after becoming embroiled in what a leading Republican strategist called “a career-ending empathy scandal.”

After signing a law barring licensed therapists from engaging in so-called gay conversion therapy, Mr. Christie stunned his fellow Republicans by seemingly expressing compassion for gay children, thus disqualifying himself from any further role in the G.O.P.

“Showing empathy for gays or children would have been bad enough,” says Republican strategist Harland Dorrinson, one of many party leaders who called for Mr. Christie to withdraw.“But empathy for gay children is a flat-out betrayal.”

In a brief statement to reporters, Mr. Christie expressed remorse for what he called “my unfortunate and ill-considered display of understanding for people different from myself,” and urged the people of New Jersey to remember “my strong record of cutting funds for schools and the elderly.”

While Mr. Christie might try to regain his fellow Republicans’ trust by vetoing more assault-rifle bans, G.O.P. strategist Tracy Klugian says that the governor does not deserve another chance, citing his “dangerous flirtations with compassion” in the past.

“After Hurricane Sandy, Chris Christie worried a lot of us with his recklessly sensitive behavior,” says Mr. Klugian.“But we really thought he had put this problem behind him.”

Mr. Christie’s latest empathy scandal has left Mr. Klugian, like many other Republicans, shaking his head:“It’s sad to see such a promising career end this way. But maybe this will force him to get the help he needs.”

I never do the dirty work myself. I have a wet works crew that handles all of my iconing. The price is very reasonable.

The key is volume discounts.

Ok, so my one burning question to you is, why would you want to make that argument?
For me, the subtle differences in how words parse out reality such that we can be cognitively aware of our world around us is important. I would prefer a different word for each different attributed meaning - but languages don't do that. We attempt to do so in science; hence scientific jargon.
Isn't it better to understand that to confuse?
Here's the crux: if you wanted to understand atheists, you'd want to know how they/we define words. Forcing definitions on us isn't getting closer to our understanding of reality, it's a poor attempt to shape it.
And the same works both ways. If I wanted to understand waaasssuuup, I'd have to understand his way of speaking about the world using words in the way he defines them.
Now I don't care one bit to understand waaasssuuup. The man has demonstrated himself immune to learning, bigoted against people not like him, and arrogant towards other cultures and religions. But I would like to understand how "normal" Christians experience spirituality and talk about it - thus far, few have been able to discuss such things on here. Not sure why.
the belief system appeals to the intellectual bereft. The belief is constantly contradictory it cannot accommodate logic, only ego.
