Freaktard atheists had a conniption fit. Christian persecution at its finest.
How is that persecuting Christians? As the Christians themselves noted, "We are no longer issuing the 15% praying in public discount. It is illegal" as would be a 15% surcharge added onto the checks of people caught praying before their meals.

No special rights for Christians.

Sorry you don't like it.
You were looking for Crothers on Facebook. So I'm sure a physics journal would not be your cup of tea.
There is no "like" to click on.
By the way, are you aware that wiki is notoriously unreliable on science matters?

You are sure are strange, investing everything in a astrophysicist you call a moron and idiot.

The question is,'Prove there's a god."

Satan is the god of this world. Just turn on the news and see murder, theft, rape... To believe in the God of Love and Mercy can only come by faith and that faith has to be given to you by God. No one can say Jesus is Lord, the Son of God our Father in heaven, without the Holy Spirit.

I was addicted to a quart of whiskey a day. I lost three jobs by calling in sick and buying a bottle in the morning. Then, another when that was gone afternoon. Two quarts a day for a week. I got fired, cleaned up and got another job. This happened three times. I was being evicted and made an enemy who wanted to kill me. I prayed to God in the name of Jesus the Christ. And in that One Day I was set free from my alcohol addiction. It's all uphill from now out of my pit. Faith comes from hearing,(testimonies) and the word of God. The God of Israel.

At the invitation of the editors who have not stopped laughing since?
Do you really suppose an honourable journal is going to get all hot and bothered over the discredited work of a PhD failure?
I just looked up a wiki on Progress in physics
“Progress in Physics is an American *alternative* science journal”
“The journal *describes* itself as peer-reviewed”
“The referees of the papers published are *not listed*, although anonymity of referees is specifically criticized in "Article 8: Freedom to publish scientific results" of the Declaration of Academic Freedom.*This document harshly criticizes the current peer-review system using the words "censorship", "alleged expert referees", "blacklisting", and "bribes".*
Yeah go buck, you got a “proper” scientific journal there... LOL... you really are so sad.
Assailing him personally is your substitute for actual criticism. You know nothing else to assail him with, and you are not smart enough to recognize a legitimate case against him if you saw it.

No special rights for Christians.
The owner didn't provide the discount to any and all that prayed in her diner. She let the waitstaff decide when a discount was 'deserved' on an individual basis. One of her patrons (a Christian) posted a picture of a receipt, with discount, on Facebook... eventually leading to full-blown public disclosure. Even if the prospect of legal action hadn't been brought to her attention, how long would it have been before the owner stopped providing the discount altogether anyway?

A 15% percent discretionary discount every once in a while isn't that big of a deal... the owner could afford it... and was happy to provide it.

15% discounts for all...

<Shhhhh. Don't tell everyone.>

Whoops!

Once again, you are being dishonest.

To repeat: I began by stating that I find zero evidence for a god. Then I indulged you and said that, assuming arguendo that you could posit some sort of "circumstantial" evidence--which you hadn't even specified, by the way--any such evidence would be insufficient under any standard.

Again, I have not conceded that there is evidence. I find no evidence. Want to show me what you consider to be evidence of a god? Or do you just want to attack my person, by repeatedly calling me a liar?

If the latter is the case, I'm done with this discussion.

Today’s science has no real comparison in past centuries.
We did not evolve directly from apes, we are from the line that diverged from the great apes millions of years ago.
But we know this. Two separate studies (maybe more by now) have shown that humans carry a percentage of Neanderthal genes/blood. This can only mean that some of our ancestors had sex with Neanderthals and produced fertile offspring. Neanderthal DNA is different than humans…they were not human.
Hybrids normally do not produce fertile offspring. That means what you depict as Neanderthal were Humans.

I'll retract the accusation of lying, and settle for you not knowing what evidence is.

That's a generous assumption I'm allowing you. Because you SHOULD know what evidence is.

But if you say that's how it is, I will allow it.

What law does it violate?
Years ago, I represented a large public utility company. The company made a mistake in the gas metering for one residential customer, placing a decimal point three numbers removed, so that the customer was being charged one one-thousandth of what he should have been charged. The customer had a large house, with a huge outdoor swimming pool. When he saw how small his gas bills were (pennies!), he began to keep his pool heated to 84 degrees, and did so during the entire cold, bitter winter. His gas usage was enormous.

Eventually my client became aware of its error, and sent the customer an additional bill, reflecting the true cost of the gas he had used. The bill was well into five figures. The customer objected, claiming that it was the company's fault, hence the company had to eat the loss. The company took the position that the customer had to know he was being undercharged for the use, and took unfair advantage by running up the use.

I argued the case a bit differently (although also stressing that the customer had to know there was a mistake). My argument was that the utility company cannot legally discriminate by charging one customer a different amount than is charged by other customers, for the same amount of service.

The court seemed to agree with my argument, pointing out that the customer should not be able to receive a windfall, at the expense of other customers.

Mid-trial, we settled.

Catch the analogy?

No, it's not analogous at all.

But I also have occasionally made a mistake with my gas metering.
