Why would you think that makes me clueless? I pay attention in church.
You told us that you don't go to church. Maybe you were drunk and don't recall. Or maybe you're drunk now and don't recall posting the opposite claim. It doesn't matter. The important thing to note is that your word is not reliable. Don't you think that you should care about that? Do they ever discuss that kind of thing in your church?

Honesty is the cornerstone of integrity. The meaning of integrity is latent in the word, which is related to words like "integrals," which are the whole numbers, or numbers without fractions or decimal, and "integrate," which means combine parts into a whole. In Spanish, "trigo integral" means whole wheat.

Integrity as a human quality relates to personal habits considered collectively - that they be mutually consistent and not internally contradictory. When your words today contradict your words yesterday, you are a liar. When your actions today contradict your words yesterday, you are a hypocrite if the words were a moral admonishment, or perhaps merely undependable if your words were a promise that was not kept. Are you getting the drift here?

Far from being a person whose words and deeds form a consistent and seamless whole, you are all over the place. People notice, you have been called on it repeatedly, and your personal reputation has suffered for it.

I don't really care like your mother might any more. My purpose is to promote irreligiosity, and part of that effort is to showcase Christian ethics in practice in order to belie the claim that Christianity is moral training. The humanists here outperform the Christians by several lengths. I don't recall any being caught in as many lies as you have been lately.

Although your preacher may give lip service to it, integrity doesn't seem to be a Christian virtue. Lying is. And hypocrisy is. Christians apologetics comprise specious argumentation, revisionism, and assorted fallacies - especially semantic fallacies such as equivocations and prescriptive definitions.

How could that happen? By giving a liar the benefit of the doubt? That's hardly being fooled, and there is no harm in being charitable there if you don't act on the lie. I accepted you at your word until I knew better, and it did me no harm.

If America is a Christian nation because the majority of Americans call themselves Christians, she is also a female nation, since 50.8% are female. http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/00000...

Here's where your previous lying undermines you. You have no standing to make a comment like this and expect to be taken seriously any more. Even when you're not deliberately lying, you're wrong so often about what was actually said that claims like the above are simply disregarded out of hand now. I doubt that anybody feels the need to demonstrate the unreliability of your word any more.

I'm sure if I wanted to, I could easily find a clip of Pat Robertson threatening people with hell. This is the guy that blamed the disaster in Haiti on the wrath of god.
Listen to that Christian piece of shit muckraking again in this 38 second clip from a few days ago :
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/19/pat-...

Robertson doesn't realize that he and the other Christians have already lost Christmas to the pagans. The Vikings stole it from them and made a mockery of it. When scum like Robertson and O'Reilly use the War on Christmas as a wedge issue, it makes me want to remind them that they are too late. They've already lost their holiday to pagans.

Christmas has become a celebration of the winter solstice again. The entire house is decorated in honor of the Viking Ice Giant gods, including flocking, tinsel, Yule logs, Yule wreathes, mistletoe, poinsettias and Christmas lights, just like in Bethlehem.

And on the lawn we have sleighs, Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and the elves gathering around Santa’s workshop under the North Star. Incidentally, Rudolph is a Viking name just like Santa Klaus, and just like Donner and Blitzen, which mean thunder and lightning in German.

It's no longer the desert holiday about baby Jesus, who seems to have been removed from it altogether, along with camels, sand, deserts, Joseph and Mary, the manger, and the Magi.

This could be the last time Jesus was seen. Perhaps this guy took him:
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_RwdH5DTKRas/SzTsWlN...

Or this guy: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v249/Mock26...

Even their precious carols about Jesus have been replaced by "Jingle Bells" and "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer." And now, hip-hop culture is jumping on the pile with carols of its own. From TopFiveDOTcom:

THE TOP HIP HOP CHRISTMAS SONGS

5. Jingle Bell Glock

4. All I Want for Christmas is My Two Gold Teeth

3. Violent Night

2. Police Navidad

and the Number 1 Hip Hop Holiday Song...

1. Whose Kid Is This, Bitch?!?

And for the Christians who resent the phrase "Happy Holidays" because they don't want to be included with other traditions, I wish you all a Happy Winter Solstice, HumanLight, Festivus, Saturnalia, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Korochun, Modresnach, Soyal, Yalda, Yule, Zagmuk, or whatever else it is that you celebrate.

Do you have anything useful to add or will post assumption after assumption?
It was not an assumption. The only constant in the universe is change, there's a reason for that. As humans, the only way to improve and progress is to change. Sticking to something that never changes offers you no new challenges, no new information, and nothing useful, it's stagnant, your entire life being based on that stagnant thing makes your life stagnant and boring. Perhaps that's the reason you try to engage atheists, we're the only thing new you ever encounter.
