Nymph!

Where is Fish and that Fundie dance list when you need him?

Not my forte but the "God Gene" study is one.
Is it trying to disprove an existence of a god or gods or trying to explain why belief is so pervasive?

That's the thing about myths, they change over and over throughout time without the general populace of the newest version ever bothering to know the original from which it was taken.
Thanks for the info, Liam. You are always a great source!
How's my boy?
Their god has to change. The gaps ever shrink. Soon it will be Norquisted.

<quoted text> Good idea.
After a couple of years of being told that we were going to hell (in a handbasket), I decided to invent a handbasket for us all to take the trip. But the trip turned out not to be to hell, and turned into joyous occasions when all the non-Christians (and one or two people like NS) go on excursions to places we'd like to see. We always carry a picnic lunch and have copious amounts of chocolate on hand.
Over the years I have upgraded the basket so that we can fly or sail to any place on earth. I have also added a fridge, a small spa and several other conveniences to keep us all happy, comfy and in good health and spirits.
The fundies have followed screaming 'Why aren't you in hell yet?!!!' but we just speed up and laugh our way along the paths we follow, ignoring any negative things that they may scream at us.
They sit very disgruntled (and without picnic supplies) as we sit with our checkered cloth on the ground or a picnic table in a park, and wait to see where we're going next. I think they secretly enjoy the laughter and beauty we share with each other, but they never join in.
If you are one of those who either doesn't believe, believes but keeps it to yourself and don't preach, tell me you'd like to go on the trip in May. Our trip this time is to Stone Henge and Avebury. There is a dance at midnight in the center of the Henge. You can dance naked if you like as there will be no one to judge you. I personally will not be dancing naked in front of people, as at 66 I feel it is a detriment to the eyes of others for me to do so.
I am not going unless I get 72 porn stars. Virgins are so 1950s.

They got' high backs so the folks what deposited the brains can still navigate down ta ther "pew". I guess ya gotta pat fer wherever ya sets, coz they passes this gold plate around fer ya ta put yer payment in.
Oh...Ther's also some kinda oaf what ya gotta take afore the actual "doctor'n" takes place(after the pastard sizes up the conjurgation)what ya gotta stand up fer. Almost fergot that part. After all the hubbub is settled ya gott'a smile at everone and tell the pastard he done a good job afore they let ya out!

The foundation of European anti-Semetism extends to Martin Luther, the Father of American Christianity:

The old coot Drifter used to say (Where is that artless dodger?), "It is hard to brush the dust off history". He actually got it wrong. Brushing the dust from history exposes just how terribly history is manipulated by those who stand to gain politically and financially. Can we blame to common Christian in Germany for the ills of the nation? Of course not. The Treaty of Versailles made it impossible for the average German to feed their families. The conditions were ripe for a Cult of Personality dictator who could easily manipulate the masses with Booblical Principles and the collusion of the churches. Hitler put people to work and "put food on their families" (Thanks, Dubya!). This is the danger of religion, any religion. When the name of a god is invoked, and the people can be manipulated to do whatever works of that god the powers that be decide will be, the masses are opiated, sated, and stirred up into whatever froth is wanted. After all, how can you argue with a god?

Thank you for the assist, bookmarked for later reading. The last conversation we had on here (some time ago) was about this. I lost your links and many others due to the untimely demise of my laptop (and my brilliance in not backing up my information)…. unfortunately it took my eclectic group of links with it.

Except for this part:

Matthew 7:102 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

And this part:

Galatians 5:22-23: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."

Pity.

I am excellent. Sitting by the fire, staring out at the snow. What could be bad?

Remember, brainwashing was at the core, and religion just made it more efficient.

How could a fundamentalist be intellectually or even just plain honest? There is an unassailable, inherent, inescapable dichotomy between honesty and abject faith. They can not co-exist. Fingers in ears, hands over eyes, feet-stomping, and chicken dancing prevail.

Hey Clownie :D
Not only that but there sure are a lot of Scientists out there, on both sides of the spectrum, still trying to prove or disprove God's existance.
Maybe one of these lovely geniuses could tell them they're wasting time and money.
I think right now, it's still just a matter of personal beliefs and opinions.
"The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as of all serious endeavour in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me, if not dead, then at least blind. To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is a something that our minds cannot grasp, whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly: this is religiousness. In this sense I am religious. To me it suffices to wonder at these secrets and to attempt humbly to grasp with my mind a mere image of the lofty structure of all there is."

"God is love"
Peace Clownie <3
"God is love"? Which one is that? Certainly not the one worshipped by Christers in 2013 or the one represented by the Booble. Perhaps you mean Mahavira?
