Could this be an actual, honest, question from you instead of hatred for once?

He's one of those redneck types who just doesn't see a good reason to spend money on it, actually. His cars are his cellphones, he loves his cars.

Right, thanks.
Then why is there a thought amongst some atheists that say we own guns (fight death) because we're not true believers or we're "closet atheists"?
That's just crazy, IMO.
I don't know, ask the ones that say that. I don't read minds.

It's not a need. We are unable to simultaneously hold a belief in a god which presents no evidence, and in reality as we understand it with abundant evidence.
Some people can do that.
I can't.
Would it be possible for you to start believing in Santa again?
If not, why not?
If so, what would convince you?
I certainly don't see any presence of god in the vast majority of his believers.
Not necessary to believe in Santa to BE SANTA.
Yes its a facade. But of noble reason and consequence.
Why do you beware of Santa bearing gifts?

In my lifetime the USSR and the Berlin Wall were a everyday fact of life. Bomb shelter drills in school were a weeky event.

In view of that I'm predicting that within 25-50 years there will be a sucessful multi-state secession.There will be 2 Americas-co-existing. This nation is irrepairably divided and it will only get worse.
Although I could never imagine myself accepting such a scenario I now find myself hoping to be alive to witness it.
I hope not! Knowing your history, the last time that happened it led to the American Civil War.

Wonderful, then you must know that #5 of Saint Thomas Aquinas' Five Ways is a teleological argument....

*All natural bodies follow laws of conduct.
*These objects are themselves unintelligent.
*Laws of conduct are characteristic of intelligence.
*Therefore, there exists an intelligent being that created the laws for all natural bodies.
*This being is whom we call God.

I don't know where you come up with this line of thinking. It's really weird.
If that is what God wanted, He wouldn't have bothered with the Ten Commandments, would He?
I mean, how am I to abide to any of them when I'm dead?
Well again, that is just another Biblical contradiction. The Bible gives moral instructions for your life on Earth while at the same time saying that the Earth is of lesser importance to Heaven, and that the Earth will ultimately be destroyed anyway. Given that, what is the point of any moral instruction at all? Indeed, if you accept the concept of Original Sin, you could argue that having kids is morally wrong.

You could answer that question yourself, since you reject belief in all other gods but one (or three, depending if you believe in a Triune God or not).

Abortion is defined as removal of an ebryo or fetus - I don't know why we're trying to figure out the definition of "child" as it's irrelevant to the discussion.
It's hardly irrelevant if part of the argument is whether a fetus is also a child or not.
I agree with you on the line of aborting if the mother's life is at stake - no matter the age of the fetus. Mom is first, IMO.
I think the main reason of abortion is for birth control, but I agree with you that it's an ineffective means. BUT, it is NOT my place to tell a woman that she can or can't have an abortion, regardless of reason.
You think it's a misogyny thing? I disagree, at least as far as thebirth control part goes. I think there's lots of men out there (young and old) that foolishly get a woman pregnant and wish they could force her to get an abortion.
Doesn't that imply that you do agree it's at least partly misogynistic?
I don't know, but I'd bet a lot of men don't take much of a stance on abortion rights.
Far from it. Christian pro-lifers are overwhelmingly men.

You're wrong again. I'm not surprised.

Seriously? Let me help you:

"a total recorded crime rate" is not the same as a "gun crime" rate.

Here's the important point. You probably make a mistake like that approximately every ten to twenty minutes that you read. There is no possible way for you to have even half of your conclusions be valid with that error rate. If you made an arithmetic error every tenth time you tried adding two digits, for example, and you tried to add a column of 5 ten-digit numbers, your chance of getting an accurate sum would be about (0.9)^50, or about a half a percent.
