Numerology now???

The only number that has importance is 42. After all, it is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything.
Well, I must confess to a personal fondness for 3.1415926...

Herhehe.

According to the NOVA special Darwins Stepchild linked us to, David is the earliest biblical character that can be said to have been a historical character. Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Esau, Joseph and his brothers, Job. Jonah, Lot, Moses, Joshua - none of these people is known to have actually existed, and none of the myths surrounding them is known to have actually occurred including the Exodus and the siege of Canaan.
But starting about 1000 BCE with David and Solomon, real people are known to have been kings over a real nation, even if not every story about them is authentic.
I thought Shem was Larry and Moe's brother. Maybe I'm thinking of somebody else.

Does this mean that polydactyl people can not get married?
That's right along with people who have had an accident and are minus a few bits and pieces.

Exactly!
The idiotic idea that "it's all for the best" and "god has a plan" and "it's all god's will" is **bullshyt**.
It causes people more grief than **any** slight help it might accidentally cause.
The only **rational** message a **sane** person could take, from witnessing the tragedy you describe?
Is that if there is a god, he's a real douchenozzle, and what this god likes the **most**?
Is making little girls **suffer** endlessly.
We know this must be so, right?
Because one of this god's spokes-weenies has told us that god delights at the suffering of people (Mother Teresa).
... especially little girls (or so it appears)
... meh.

And yes, I'd take a bullet.

Of course it doesn't.
You might think that people who trust and value faith, who think that it is a superior methodology, would claim it only for themselves, and point to the absence of it within atheism. What we're seeing more and more, is faith based thinkers accusing atheists of having faith as a way of insulting us, or bringing us down to their level.
Welcome to this dumb topix thread. I think this one is one of the better ones.
I dyed my pubic hair blonde but before I did that I wrote front and back on my panties just to be sure.

When I tried to put them on this morning the words were upside down and I couldn't read them. Oh well.

I miss RR :(

What's funny is that I bet if someone put up a post that said "Religion requires as much science as atheists" the absurdity would be immediately obvious. Someone this topic's title doesn't jump out as fast.
Good stuff...
Theists do often argue that their religion is compatible with science. Some here have credited Christianity with science altogether.

The only *sane* conclusion to It Ain'ts story is that this god of theirs must really **delight** in the suffering of little girls.
After all, isn't that what Mother Teresa claimed?
... meh.
Wasn't that what she said?
I seem to recall that she denied her patients pain meds - but accepted them herself.

40 is the most important number and proves that marriage can only be between a man and woman as a man and woman have 40 fingers and toes between them.
That's not true, is it?

OhhhMGeeee. It is. My girlfriend and I only have 35.

Absence of expected evidence of RR is evidence for the absence of RR.

And there's a lot of it.

Funny, I don't miss Dave at all.

Hmmm?

What is the meaning of life and everything.
