It's not difficult, but requires a goal, commitment, and adhering to a routine.
Okay, that sounds like work.

Though probably you are correct in terms of what was intended, the word lightening has many meanings, one of which is to "give off flashes of lightning". http://www.thefreedictionary.com/lightening
Sometimes people tend to make issues with spelling errors and typos that really don't affect the topic being discussed particularly.
The main effect of continuous use of misspelled words is one of the means by which one of our greatest deceivers on these threads has been caught several times in a lie, using the very same misspelled words and the same manner of using the words under different names which they claimed were not the same poster, but as it turned out they were the same poster, which they eventually admitted to.
So it is not so much that people can't understand what a person means if they misspell a word or make a typo, but whether repeating the same error many times may give away some secrets.
Oh holy fk! More meandering from the resident OC.

Good post.
I now call the central tenets of the theory of evolution fact. Although no scientific theory can be proven, evolutionary theory comes as close as you can - close enough to call a fact. The theory can't be upturned without discovering something as dramatic as a Matrix reality or Last Thursdayism being the case, or uncovering a trickster god that wanted us to believe that life had evolved. If I can call less well established ideas facts, I think that I can call Darwin's idea fact as well.
What do you think?
Agreed.

At this point, I'd nearly accept that as axiomatic.

I really, really hope that someone at the mental hospital you're in is supervising you closely while you vent.
Who the hell knows - it may be your therapy to release the presure of your serial killer tendencies, or whatever the f*ck is wrong with you.
It's a good thing your crazy @ss is locked up.
You are a danger to this society. Society has decided that your punishment is a lifetime of hatred and misery.
They didn't want to execute you because that would have been too easy an out for you. They wanted you to stew in the boiling poison of your sickness.
You should know what the rules are...riiiiight, "God"? After all, you wrote them.
"God Himself" is what mental illnes looks like.
When you hear a HUMAN refer to himself as "god" you KNOW, RIGHT THEN, that they are C R A Z E E E ...
BALALALALALALALALALA!
THANKS to whoever decided to lock your @ss up! You're KOO-KOO!
Let me point out to you that the negativity of your responses are based solely on your sentimental disposition towards anything related to "God".

The word "God" does not have to mean a supernatural being that is worshiped or deserving of praise. Let me expand your mind:

God:

"A powerful ruler OOOOOR despot." [http://www.thefreedictionary. com/god]

When I called you a dunce the first time I was only playing around; but you truly are a dunce.

There are less than a handful of Christians that can maintain a civil conversation about their religion. Lately, I have had three Christians that started out civil eventually break down and get personal and hostile over my opinions about faith, their bible, their doctrine, and their church.
I guess I understand. We attack what is most cherished to them, Now that the Internet gives us a safe place to express them, they're hearing what we think of their church, and they seem shocked. Since they have always had the freedom to demean and marginalize us unopposed, they're not used to hearing our thoughts.
They will. Watch as our ideas replace theirs. It seems inevitable to me that their ideas will become progressively more socially unacceptable and evoke increasingly more contempt and ridicule over the next few decades. Eventually, that will silence them. I expect that there will be a closet available soon ready for immediate occupancy.
Gotta love those people who wear gold crosses or other such jewelry, wear funny hats, strange clothing, horrible haircuts, stick fish and "I-Heart-Jesus" stickers on their cars - and then tell me to keep my atheism to myself.

I am agnostic, in case you are wondering. I believe there could be a god or gods, but I just don't believe in all the dogma associated with christianity etc.
Well said.

Me, too. I'm also agnostic. I don't really see how anything else is possible at this point. How could you know either way?

I'm also an atheist because, like you, I'm not buying any of the dogma. Nor the mythology, nor the superstitions, nor the magical thinking. I don't believe any of it, so I'm not involved in any religions or any forms of worship. Why would I be.

That makes me an atheist. An agnostic atheist. If I'm not an atheist - if somebody as aggressively anti-theistic as I am doesn't count as an atheist because - then the word is useless.

I wouldn't be surprised if you're also an atheist. You don't seem to believe in a god either.

You can't be right, coz what about sikh history? Sikhs died for others but they got nothing in return but death. I do think that we should look at people like them and salute them, even if they said don't worship us as we are not Gods, we are humans like you, but i think they are Gods in my eyes. They gave up everything to help others and in the end they got nothing. Too good people do exist, they do, they do!!!

You hate women, and love men. You are gay. Of course you'd make a female slur. You're that self-hating gay man that's tromping for dates.
Well, you ain't gonna get 'em that way, son.
Treat the men you like just like us straight men treat women: you'll get more flies with honey than vinegar.
"I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High."
Then you just contradicted yourself, you scizophreic...just like you did in "the book you wrote".
You SAY you are the ONE and ONLY "god" RIGHT IN THAT SAME BOOK.
Can't be both at the same time.
God is callig God a LIAR! HAAAA HAAAA!
God is an Atheist, Too!
No WONDER there are athiests!
It's like "God" doesn't even believe in his own existance!
Keep the crazy coming "god"! HA HA HA HA HA!
Are you sure that I am the one who hates women here?

Where is the contradiction?

If you understood the Bible you would know that there are various people speaking in the Bible, each having their own conception of what God is or relying on different attributes.

The differences in perspectives or characterisations of God are due to the differences in the subjectiveness of the perceptions of the various men, regarding the nature of God.

Hence there is no contradiction in God in the Bible, but there may be contradiction about God in the Bible.

What I have said about me being a God is not contradicting anything. You are making a baseless claim.

Do you even understand the style of writing that is used to compose the Bible?

DUNCE!

I don't understand the question. Maybe we don't mean the same thing by the phrase "natural intelligence." I mean intelligence that arose naturally, not supernaturally.
<quoted text>
Agreed.Of course, I haven't argued that, if that's where your going. I just finished telling you that "Natural intelligence probably does exist," meaning that the intelligence we see is probably not supernatural inorigin.
Why are you obsessed with the supernatural? You seem to be suffering from a God delusion of some sort. By "natural intelligence", I mean intelligence that arose naturally.

I desire to understand why you find it hard to appreciate that if natural intelligence exists, that intelligence may have designed and/or be guiding the development of the natural world.

Why couldn't natural intelligence cause the formation of the universe by intelligently designing; even by evolution in as much as it is a process that can be used to create intelligently?

Are you also "Evo-Lotion is Rub-ish"? That was the name of the poster that I answered at http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TOCO8TE... . He wrote: "aren't you essentially a BELIEVER in ToE?"
That person mentioned believing in. Was that you? If so, why are you using multiple names? I don't trust the sincerity or the motives of posters who come back wearing new identities. Why would you? It's the equivalent of coming to my door in a disguise when I know you, and asking me questions without telling me that it's you.
I've deleted the rest of your post.
Yes, I am the Evil-lotion character.
That quote does contain terms which allude to "belief in"; but my questions regarding "religious beliefs", I maid no mention about "believing in" anything; so I fail to see why you are differentiating believing in from believing that, in the context.
"I don't trust the sincerity or the motives of posters who come back wearing new identities" either.
But since the value of a person's questions and responses has nothing to do with what name they are posting under; just get with it or get lost.

You probably should actually listen to these things before you link to them. You need to see it again, this time past the 1:45 mark. The video was mocking you.
Incidentally, I think that this epitomizes the lack of thoroughness and rigor that characterizes the typical faith based thinker. You recommend material that you are unfamiliar with.
What do you imagine that your recommendations and endorsements are worth now?
I actually did listen to it before I posted it. You are not the individual described in the latter part of the video.

You are the one described in the first part... the one about an atheist being someone who is angry at God...

But there you go.

A theory cannot be proven.

So what is the value of supporting evidence if it does not prove the theory correct?

only now you hear more about BAD more bc the news travels at the speed of light!

And yet, people SHOULD have changed much - MORALLY - over the centuries, for the BETTER. Why has it gone pear-shaped?? Surely: PHYSICAL Evolution + MENTAL Evolution = MORAL Evolution. It's got me stumped.
