Yeah, the quidnuncs. And the lackwits.

Incidentally, I used that word "quidnunc" with you in mid, assuming that you would look it up and make it yours if you saw it. You seem to love fun words, too, hence "lackwit":

[1] Lackwit - a dull or witless person (yo, Shrink!)

Here are a few more with a religious bent:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antinomianism

[6] Antithalian - disapproving of laughter or festivity (yo, Here For Now!)

And some more of general applicability to go with quidnunc and lackwit:

[7] Cockalorum – little man with an unduly high opinion of self (yo, Skombolis again!).

Heh
The guy pretends people emailed him so he can post more of his lists and made of a fake constitution for the fake demographic he created of secular humanist that exists only on Topix. I am thinking he is very emotionally attached!
I wonder if when he first started he thought it would carry more weight to claim he was an ex-Christian so nobody could say he just didn't understand and he can claim he 'broke free' from indoctrination? Except now that left him looking silly when he tries to look more atheist by saying "chicken on a stick" and is left with no explanation how he tells everyone else their thinking is a bi-product of the 'church' and indoctrination yet he chose to follow Christ as an adult
He was used to nobody looking too closely at his claims. He has largely discredited himself with his own posts. Its makes it all the more funny to watch!
:)
Yosemite is a funny guy for sure. All you say just back up what I originally thought of him, a Insecure Inferior Religious Slave.

He not broke free from Christianity one bit. Religion still hang around his neck like a 2 ton chain still drowning him.

I tell him a while back that you trick him. You pull him on this billboard to get a royal azz whupping like a runaway slave deserve, and that what he got. Because as you say if he choose Christianity as an adult, clearly he was not indoctrinated. So after he leave Christianity, how come he cant let go? because he is a slave that why. Well then I treat him like a slave then.

Then to make matters worse he come on here pretending to be a atheist. But when any Christian mention hell he jump up with his "chicken on a stick" routine, clearly in the back of his mind the thought of hell scare the cock-a-doodle out of him so he run to "arise chicken" to feign disbelieve but he always respond.

I no know what you write to him but he come in here gunning for you like Yosemite with 2 guns 'I'm a git me some crissians' oy!lol!. And up to now, he still obsessed with you because of what you write to him.

So he can't let go from Christianity...and he not bright enough to either defend the foundation of secular humanism or refute the evidence out there that call what secular humanist believe as how this whole existence come about fairy tale nonsensical rubbish for adults.

Some of his smart "friends" like wilderide and others run left him long time. And his Pride won't let him leave.

So he still come everyday. Everyone seeing he stuck between two religions, wishing and daydreaming one was dying, but too stupid to defend the other. HA!.'it aint necessarily so' is a colossal absurd joke of a person. And to see him in this position make me all the more curious how silly his writings will be to get out of this predicament he bring on himself by coming on this billboard.

Upon what ground does God's work for sinners rest.

But God who is rich in mercy, for His great love where with He loved us, even when we were dead in sins hath quickened us together with Christ and hath raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-6

But if h actually is telling the truth this time, it is quite fascinating a guy that goes around Topix saying things like "chicken on a stick" so it sounds like religion is such a foreign concept to him actually came to the faith on his own, without indoctrination, as an adult
Poor Iansy, things had been going so well for him before he came here:)

If you believe that your god exists and caused that much damage to that many people for so many decades based on kids no longer being forced to mindlessly pay homage to it, what does that say about your god, and why do you still worship it?

How did that "slow removal" occur RR? Did removing prayer from school cause you to "forget about God"? Do you need others to "remind you of God"?

If God is on a downhill slope in your mind...that is your fault...not that of society. Is it difficult at time to hold on to your values in today's world...yes...I think it is. Best that I can remember Christians were never promised that it would be an easy road...quite the opposite.

Christians can not (though I suppose they can) blame others if God is slowly being removed from their brains...you have free will...free will to not let that happen.
It's been a gradual downhill slope that the American family structure has witnessed the past 50 years. That is undeniable.
Yeah...I read your thoughts on the single mother structured homes...since I have been a single mother at one time or another with both of my children...I decided to scroll on by...wasn't in the mood to voice my opinion about your thoughts.

Again...each person...each family...has the free will to structure their family as they see best serves tham and whatever belief system they have.

Me being a single mother twice in my life in no way affected the structure of your family...nor your belief or value system. If it did...that was your choice to allow it.

Along the lines of the downhill slope of family structure...

You said once that you will encourage your sons to live with their perspective wives for a few years first.

Is that aiding in keeping God in the mind of your sons...is it helping that downhill slope of American families???

Hmmm You encourage adultery...yet bash us single mothers...

As Annie said, keeping God in people's minds is not a responsibility of public schools. Schools are in place to teach facts, not lead incantations to some symbolic father figure.

It is deniable. I see nothing wrong with my family structure. I see nothing wrong with two mothers, two fathers, one mother, one father raising children to be responsible adults.

I don't buy the "good old days" stuff. Just because it's different from your family structure doesn't make it bad. You told us that your father was either a racist or homophobe, I can't remember which now. Do you think that provides a good environment to raise a child?

Again i agree. I travels twice as fast and twice as many people........ I must admit, I have a hard time with that part of it. I can usually remain calm and get the issue resolved, but there are times when I haven't. I think I'll always be working on that part of it. It just doesnt come easy for me. LOL....

<quoted text>Also may want to consider what car you use. My brother got in an accident and the rental car was a foreign car and literally two potential customers said they wouldn'use him because he was driving a foreign car. He even showed them the rental slip. He ended up having to switch it out!
But many times people won't ever say the reason
My equipment is all American made stuff, but the car i drive isnt. I never even thought that might offend some, but it is very pro union around here. I'm about due for a new car, and I thought i would maybe go with a Ford for quite awhile now. As long as the model i've been looking at keeps getting high reviews it will probably be a Ford.

<quoted text>You know what grew his business a lot?
Atime he did a job he would make "neighborhood fliers". He would pass them out up and down the block where he just did work saying "just serviced Mr and Mrs ______ at 1234 service street. I am a lifelong resident and we offer free quotes"
You get the trust factor, the word of mouth as they can always ask the neighbor what kind of job you did re otherwise it might not come up, and sometimes people will want to have work done just because a neighbor did.
He also would knock a small amount off the bill if they were willing to put up a sign on their lawn that had the name of his business for one month. Or he may even have switched to just telling them that is part of the deal and do they have a problem with that. If they did he wouldn't put it up but most would say "i don't care, go right ahead". Most would leave it up for way longer than a month. Especially if it is off to the side or by the street and not really messing with the view. But it gives you more free advertising and the same effect as the neighborhood fliers
But these two things helped him a lot.
I have thought about doing something similar to that. That particular advertising wouldn't work for me but I have thought about a similar avenue.

Good advice Skom, I appreciate it.........

Another point...no one stopped you from having prayer with your children before they left for school.

Did you have prayer with your children before they left in the mornings? Or did you leave up to the educational system to pray with them?

I wasn't talking about economics. I never brought up money or housing or jobs. I was talking about the slow decline of American family life over the past 50 or so years.
On June 25, l962, 39 million students were forbidden to do what they had been doing since the founding of our nation – publicly praying to God at the beginning of each school day.
In New York, the kids prayed:“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence on Thee and beg Thy blessing over us, our parents, our teachers and our nation.”
And what do you know? All four areas that the kids were praying for started a steep decline. Youth, family, education and national life.
Here's some interesting stats:
Youth.
1. After 1963 pregnancies in girls ages 15 through 19 increased 187% in the next 15 years.
2. For younger girls, ages 10 to 14 years, pregnancies since 1963 are up 553%.
3. Before 1963 sexually transmitted diseases among students were 400 per 100,000. Since 1963, they were up 226% in the next 12 years.
Family
1. Before 1963 divorce rates had been declining for 15 years. After 1963 divorces increased 300% each year for the next 15 years.
2. Since 1963 unmarried people living together is up 353%
3. Since 1963 single parent families are up 140%.
4. Since 1963 single parent families with children are up 160%.
Education
1. The educational standard of measure has been the SAT scores. SAT scores had been steady for many years before 1963. From 1963 they rapidly declined for 18 consecutive years, even though the same test has been used since 1941.
2. In 1974-75 the rate of decline of the SAT scores decreased, even though they continued to decline. That was when there was an explosion of private religious schools. There were only 1000 Christian schools in 1965. Between 1974 to 1984 they increased to 32,000.
a. That could have an impact if the private schools had higher SAT scores. In checking with the SAT Board it was found that indeed the SAT scores for private schools were nearly 100 points higher than public schools.
b. In fact the scores were at the point where the public schools had been before their decline started in 1963 when prayer and Bible reading/ instruction was removed from the schools.
c. The scores in the public schools were still declining.
3. Of the nation's top academic scholars, three times as many come from private religious schools, which operate on one-third the funds as do the public schools.
The Nation
1. Since 1963 violent crime has increased 544%.
3. Illegal drugs have become an enormous & uncontrollable problem.
2. The nation has been deprived of an estimated 30 million citizens through legal abortions just since 1973.

There is a correlation there, you cannot doubt that.
Classic post hoc fallacy.

Using your reasoning, that's the first generation that grew up with "Under God" in the Pledge, and "In God We Trust" on the currency.

It's all the result of shoving gods down peoples' throats.

There'sa correlation there, you cannot doubt that.
