how do you know about my psyche? Or even what evil is? the knowledge of the difference between good and evil comes from the thing you say doesn't exist.
So tell me what does an electron look like? And does it stop existing because you can't describe it's actual physical features? Theoretical images or drawings from your psyche don't count.

I went to a prostitute, and asked for a BJ, but the price was too high. The HJ was cheaper but I had just enough for a good TJ. She did the special version called the TJ Monk, where she did a humming type chant while my member was against her neck.

What has one to do with the other; you are the ones with the superior belief or you wouldn't scoff at someone else's. i demand? i am one who enjoys science; real science; not that of the establishment which is a religion in its own right. And why not expect those who think so little of others (or is that backlash talking) shouldn't have superior proof?
How do you know i haven't demanded and gotten proof of the Mighty One? It is outside of your capacity to experience because you have closed your minds to the possibility of an existence beyond what you want can prove.
You guys have church on the brain. You do care what i believe; and you're simply attempting to give back what you perceive you've gotten from the church (which is actually a pagan institution). And you do believe something; everybody does; like it or not. You realize you are saying "we" because you need the numbers. You can't stand on your own.
Hedging your bets makes you an agnostic not Atheist if you think something might exist.
If you don't believe in YHUH why do you feel threatened? If it's so make believe you have nothing to worry about. But you haven't considered everything or you wouldn't feel so unsettled.
To think that i almost became an Atheist; boy am i glad i didn't follow the crowd; you don't think for yourselves; you just follow along just like the Christians. i think for myself and i'm not a Christian. i follow the faith of Abraham; i am a part of family of Yshral. i don't need religion except to be compassionate to the orphans and widows and keep myself from losing my autonomy.

I thought an electron was energy potential, charged gradient, or a wave; how do you picture that? They're probably imaging the effect of some phenomena that has to do with the electron; like electricity or some kind of discharge; but is it the electron itself? They are interpreting what they see; not necessarily what is.

"now we have images of the electron's orbital path around a nucleus"

It is the probability of the path the electron is taking they are imaging; not the electron itself. Pick up and handle one electron at a time so they can describe it and i'll accept that. What they are showing is the effect of what they think is an electron. And they are using the material to explain the material.

Still it's exciting that they have a result.

LOL. If you liked the TJ Monk, and you're ready for the next level, I need to take you to the buddhist temple down the street. They offer the KoanJob. They have a sign outside that says "Blow you and your mind, same time, 5 dollars."

<quoted text>So, let me get this straight, for 40 years you exhibited no positive qualities when you were in the church or are you saying that you exhibited positive qualities but then now you are not a Christian?
No, what I have posted reveals that you also were as lost as the pedophile and rapist, who will be exactly were you wind up for eternity. You decide where you think that might be, since it won't matter.
Love for sinners, do mean, the love that pseudo-Christians have for pedophiles, murderers, rapists, child molesters, drug addicts, and child prostitution ruing leaders. Are you talking about that love?
You claim to support gays and blacks, which is a lie. How come you do not have even one gay friend or one male black friend who is not a family member?
If that is what you mean, then no I do not have your flaws.
Did you also mean pseudo-Christians like Al Garcia, who live in Southern California, but he does not even know one gay/lesbian, has never visited a gay in their home, had one over to his house, or sat and had dinner with a gay/lesbian and found out about the abuse and trauma that led to their homosexuality.
No, I do not have that kind of absent love.
I also have talked to and listen to ex-gays, but to you that is not love. Sorry, based on your choices and your delusion, you may just be right.
You are lost. Your heart is lost. Perhaps one day when you speak about believing in the Lord and his goodness will really mean something to you or even better, every one here will really believe you.

All you've accomplished is simply to prove what a lying, piece of crap troll you really are.

Happy thanksgiving you piece of crap.

As a former christian, church deacon and youth minister, I can vouch for this. Some of the elders of the church, and certainly some of those in high leadership positions demand respect based on their status as a christian and their position in the church. Even when it's not deserved.
Thanks for that.

Religion already gets special treatment from the US government, is that not enough for them?
That needs to be among the first things to change. Not only do churches need to be taxed like any other business, they need to be subject to frequent random audits with hefty, zero-tolerance prison terms for clergy caught defrauding the American public, including having the offenders frog marched out of their churches by police for the evening news.

Wouldn't you just love to see the results of the forensic audits of about a hundred churches chosen at random to see how little gets past those jackals pockets? I sure would. I'll bet less than fifty percent of the dollars collected are recorded, and that less than ten cents on the dollar is spent charitably, meaning that at most, ten percent of their gate should go untaxed. I'd bet quite a bit that that is the case.

When people that don't feel like giving churches a pass just for saying "Jesus! Jesus!" a lot have attained majority status, we might see some fairness there.

If you have any interest in the matter of church tax exemptions, and the unfairness in the way that the tax law is applied today, you might check out these emails on the subject I passed along at http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T...

And here's an article from The Guardian from this week entitled, "How US churches exploit tax exemption to promote faith-based politics - With the IRS turning a blind eye, the Christian right is getting its political advertising subsidized by American taxpayers" at http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/...

I resent that, especially in light of the fact that unlike secular charities, churches are automatically granted 501(c)(3) status, the IRS has no will to enforce the law with churches (it is assumed that if FFRF politicked, that they would lose their tax exempt status), and that there is zero oversight of the fraud committed by churches. Whereas you and I can be randomly audited, a church must be caught in flagrante delicto before the IRS will get involved.

The whole purpose of that treaty was to show the Muslim nations that America’s Christianity was different than that of Europe.

"Solely based upon religion?" That's political revisionism. The issue was the Barbary Coast pirates that colonial vessels had been protected from by the British navy prior to independence. Muslims don't care what kind of a Christian you are any more than you care what kind of Muslims they are.

Here's what the Qur'an instructs them: "O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people." http://quran.com/5/51

The bottom line is that when you read the entire article in context it shows that the intention of the line was not to say that the nation was not founded upon Christian principles.
Nonsense. That's just another of your empty and unsupported claims, and a familiar ruse with church apologists, especially when referring to criticism of their bible: "You're taking it out of context." Prove it. Restore the relevant context and prove it.

If your point had any validity, you could and would have included the missing context from the treaty (it's a treaty, BTW, not an article) that elucidated how the meaning changed without its inclusion.

Example of a passage which meaning is altered by removing surrounding context, and how restoring the context proves that :

Quote mined snippet: "I don't love my wife"
Original comment restored: "I would never say that I don't love my wife"

Do that, or gracefully accept the ignominy rightly earned by making a false claim about surrounding context changing the meaning of the words.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
I think any honest historian would agree with that, even if they don't like Christianity.
More codswallop. Plenty of honest historians and other literate people disagree with that. The relevant passage of the Treaty of Tripoli reads:

"[T]he Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion"

What part of that do you not understand? Do you know what "not in any sense means"?

So I take it that you read my post out of context. Nice.
I take it that you're making another unevidenced claim that you could easily have supported were your claim valid.

Let me take some of your words out of context and show you how sometimes it merely leaves out some detail, and sometimes it changes their meaning altogether.

Full statement with no context removed:
[1] "So I take it that you read my post out of context. Nice."

Context removed that does NOT substantially change the meaning:
[2] "So I take it that you read my post out of context."
[3] "you read my post out of context. Nice."

Context removed that DOES change the apparent meaning:
[4] "read my post" - now it sounds like a command.
[5] "So I take it that you read my post ... Nice." - now it sounds like a thank you.

Got it? Simply saying that "you removed context" to imply that a passage's meaning has been altered is insufficient. Every time any quotation or excerpt is reprinted, including biblical scripture, surrounding context is perforce removed. Ethical posters do that responsibly.

To claim otherwise is to accuse another of dishonest. To claim otherwise without even bothering to demonstrate in what way the words' apparent meaning were changed is either laziness on your part, or an example of your own dishonesty.

You've pissed off half of the thread with your irresponsible and dishonest posting. I'll bet that it surprises you to see how much we care about about that. It has to do with personal integrity and self-respect. They matter to me. They matter to Booots. They matter to OCB. They matter to KittenKoder. They matter to Scam Buster. But not to you:
