The Christian cult has never been more divisive in our country's history. Not surprisingly, we've experienced the Great Christian Recession and the quality of life for most Americans has declined as the wealthiest become wealthier.

Every body who believes in god is a selfish person, a person who can not accept that after death that is it. There is no proof what so ever, also the profit Mohamed was a paedophile who had sex with a nine year old girl and considering that all religion came from the corr-an means all believers support paedophiles.
The biggest donors to charities and food banks are God believing people. How selfish is that? Or is it you are a person that doesn't accept there is life after death? I'm not Islamic, but before you bash Mohammad realize that life was different there and then compared to today, it was accepted back then. Even some cultures today the family receives money when a daughter is married.

According to your post, you're insinuating that atheists are only atheist because they are angry with your imaginary character.
No. It's your projecting and interpretation of my post that makes you think that, and assume i am saying this Atheist is one, "only" because of his anger. Which is absurd, because an Atheist becomes an Atheist by choice. His rants and anger are a personaly problem,IMO.
Is that what you meant, or is it only that you meant it for only that one poster....and if so, why only that one?
Read the above.
Why do you think that your belief deserves respect? I don't respect it. I think it's made-up BS that people use for their own selfish purposes. Do you respect that?
I may have worded that wrong. So let me correct myself here.

You or anyone for that matter, doesn't have to respect "my belief" in God. I am not asking that, but "we" should "respect" the rights of others to believe what they choose to believe. Respect them as a person, show courtesy. Is it hard for you to show respect to another human, apart from what they believe?

Yes, i can respect "you", that you think that it's made up bs, etc etc.. Now do i agree with your opinion of my belief? No, of course not, but you have that right to believe that, as do i have my right to believe what i do.

Magic is defined as the power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces.
So there you go. Science shows us the natural law of evolution, and explain the law of evolution with the Theory of Evolution. The theory clearly shows snakes evolving from reptiles around two hundred million years ago. Hence, any other explanation for snakes existing, such as the Genesis account, is a supernatural one.

That means although you abhor the term, you are implying that magic was used in the origin of snakes.

Does this compute?

You still have your limited perspectives of what is and what ain't and the measurement of time.
You are geared to think of life as individual components measured by revolutions around the sun. These components replicate themselves to continue a certain pattern of life. You think individually as one of those replicated pieces of stellar doodoo. You miss the significance of the whole.
You have individual cells replicating within you. Yet you are the life, right? You pay lip service to the concept of mankind yet you fail to see you are just part of a larger consciousness. You see bees and ants, yet you can't believe you are part of a greater consciousness.
The species has a common DNA, just as the cells in your body. Your individual configuration does the same purpose as differences in cellular DNA does. It makes the whole work.
This can be carried down to the very beginning of life. You have common building blocks.
Your dividing is what gives the appearance of differentiation, when in fact you are just part of a larger process.
That serpent turning into a snake in one generation is just from your perspective. Back to your cells. You will have many modifications, and adaptations in them in the course of your life. You will understand that better when you get older. The newer ones may consider the older ones dinosaurs.
It is a matter of perspective, puppy.
Did not really read your post, old Dave, you have to excuse me.

I think I have the gist, though: ghostmagic, magnets, EM forces, everything a teacher tells you is a lie, mass/energy thingamajiggles and people riding on dinosaurs.

The blind hypocrisy of the religiously retarded imbecile never ceases to amaze. The evolution denying godbot is amongst the most ignorant on the face of the earth and an outright disgrace to the human race.

Evolution is common sense to ALL rational people. The fossil and genetic evidence in support of evolution is irrefutable. Modern organisms have evolved from ancestral organisms and continue to change.

Creationism isn't science and has absolutely no basis in reality. Brainwashed Christian godbots who have been programmed to mindlessly accept juvenile creationist mythology have the intellectual capacity of mentally retarded children.

Congratulations! You proved in just one exceptionally inane post that you're one of the most retarded and revolting braiwashed godots to ever post in this forum and should be totally ashamed of yourself, kid.

Poor Double Fine.

This cult of Double Fine you are cultivating is very amusing in bars and places like this, but like bars and places like this you will always have some meanie laughing at you. Gets worse further up the line.

Quit regurgitating what you were programmed to think to impress others and start thinking on your own. As an engineer you should very well understand the significance of what I posted. Just think of how you can impress if you just develop that more. Right now you are just dazzling with bullshit.

You need to get your facts straight before using examples.
(((According to a sworn deposition taken in November 2010, Marissa Alexander's husband, Rico Gray, 36, said that on August 1, 2010, he and Alexander began fighting after he found text messages to Alexander's first husband on her phone. The two were already estranged - according to her father, Alexander had been living at her mother's since the birth of the couple's daughter nine days earlier, and Gray, a long-haul trucker, said he spent the night before in his tractor-trailer. Gray began calling her names, saying "If I can't have you, nobody going to have you," and blocking her from exiting the bathroom.
Alexander pushed past Gray and went into the garage where she got her gun from her car's glove compartment.
Gray told prosecutors in the deposition that Alexander came back into the house holding the weapon and told him to leave. He refused, and what happened next is somewhat unclear. In his deposition, Gray said "she shot in the air one time," prompting him and the children to run out the front door. But when Gray called 911 the day of the incident, he said "she aimed the gun at us and she shot."
In August 2011, a judge rejected a motion by Alexander's attorney to grant her immunity under the "Stand your Ground" law. According to the judge's order, "there is insufficient evidence that the Defendant reasonably believed deadly force was needed to prevent death or great bodily harm to herself," and that the fact that she came back into the home, instead of leaving out the front or back door "is inconsistent with a person who is in genuine fear for her life.")))
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57433184/...
The only way I can see her NOT going back in the house would be if the children were NOT still in the house with HIM. I's run back in to flush him out too if I was in that position. If she had stayed out he might have decided to take the children hostage as revenge against her. Guys who employ the, "If I can't have, nobody can.", tactic are capable of anything including terrorizing innocent children. After all, if Gray cared about those kids even the tiniest bit he wouldn't be threatening to kill their mother and, thereby, leaving them orphans.

She sounds like a true mama tiger, too bad the judge was a dumbass.

You actually used to accept this point, but you have recently changed your tactic to "god has his limits" to avoid the glaring logical contradictions caused by an all powerful god.

We can quote verses back and forth, but we both know that will be pointless. I'll find a verse that says god is all knowing and all powerful, and you will find one that says he throws poop at his enemies. A fruitless exercise.

You conveniently omitted the fact that Zimmerman stopped chasing Martin and agreed to meet the police. The tragic incident wouldn't have happened if Zimmerman hadn't chased Martin or Martin hadn't reengaged Zimmerman after the chase ended. The jury came to the right verdict given the law, the instructions from the judge and the actions of both individuals.

The pygmies used to be notorious for feasting on human flesh in the past. I still think some of the cannibalism going on there is based on revenge.
