In divorce, you get rid of the whole schmuck.
My ex-wife told you that? What's her name? If you feel uncomfortable posting a person's real name here, how about you just post her initials?

I called you out sometime ago on your argument that the slaves depicted in the bible were really only "servants." You "chickened" out on that also.
There are so many things you either refuse to answer or try desperately to deflect, they're uncountable.
You lose on so many levels its become pathetic!!!
I see...

So you can't find your so-called "meticulous records" that the Romans kept for all those that they executed. You could've just said that.

If we're all done measuring dicks here, why don't you either post your "meticulous records" or admit you were wrong?

Unlike your brain, mine refuses to accept anything as being real without evidence. I became an Atheist the day I reached to age of reason. I guess you missed that day, and continue with your childish superstitions.

Believing in things that are not real is a serious mental illness called Delusional disorder, the inability to distinguish between what is real and that which is only imagined. I'd seek some professional help if I were you!!!

A guy dies and goes to heaven. His tour guide starts to show him around the whole place; the tennis courts, the main lobby, when they come upon a room full of clocks. Some are going fast, some slow and some normal.
"What's with all the clocks?" the guy asks his tour guide.
"Each clock is for each person on earth. Every time they tell a lie, their clock goes faster," he said.
Well that makes sense the guy thought to himself. Just then he noticed a clock on the ceiling going tremendously fast, and much faster than all the others. "What's that?" the guy said pointing to the ceiling.
"Oh, that's Dave Nelson's* clock. We use it as a fan."
* Feel free to insert Topix Theist of choice
Amusing. A Topix atheist mentality has to reference the supernatural to tell a joke which they didn't create, just repeated.

You can find their brains on the discount shelves. Or in CrackerJack boxes. If you wanted to pay for one. You will find plenty for free in landfills.

I found it very easily, get off your lazy ass and do the same. I won't do your homework for you.

Loony is under the impression the Barbarians and others since felt compelled to keep old Roman records preserved and archived. Especially so on cold nights or when those materials were needed for other purposes.

The Christian church is what retrieved and collated what was left of them.

Loony and his fellow tunes are a bit detached from the realities of the world.

You are calling the overwhelming majority of humanity delusional.

But YOU and the few that think like you KNOW the TRUTH.

Find a mental health professional before they find you, loony.

"Under Communist Party rule since 1949, China is officially an atheist country, but Christianity is growing. According to the Pew Research Center, China's Christian population had reached 67 million by 2010, the second largest in Asia."

http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/01/world/asia/chin...

That is a sizeable percentage of people committed to a belief. In fact, too big not to increase in number. That many in concert will sway the non-committed and apathetic.

I have posted many times about Christianity being the escape from the tyranny of man over man. Just takes time and belief your god will prevail, which is built into the religion. Atheists, Topix type included, are geared to immediate self-gratification. That is why they always get swept away with the dust in time.

dude said - "I became an Atheist the day I reached to age of reason"

did this day BY ANY CHANCE coincide with the day you came out of the closet?

i'm just asking because YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE how closely related being an atheist and being gay (and/or gay activist) seemS to be in my experiences in talking with people here! that's why i coined the term 'GAYTHEISM'!!!

Given our Topix atheist's penchant for conspiracies, and of course their belief in abiogenesis and the likelihood of life forms more advanced than us existing, this would have to give them something to sink their teeth into and further enlighten them. This is a real natural for them.

http://durangoherald.com/article/20140429/NEW... ?-

Of course they will discover it is not a collusion of ETs and our secular government, but of ETs and Christianity. The Pope probably even has a suite to stay in on his visits.

It is a spooky area to drive in, even in the day. That whole area has a strange feel about it. But I would ascribe it to telluric currents.

you're missing eternal life due to your willful ignorance and rejection of the historically and miraculously preserved documentation regarding the Messiah! not sure you'll need commas in your future....
are you afraid to debate me?:-)
There is NO historically preserved documents regarding Jesus, stop being a nitwit. The FACT is...there are NO contemporary accounts of the life of Jesus outside of the bible.

And NO, stories written about him decades after his death do NOT count as evidence.

The concept of eternal life was conjured up by frightened old men, the same ones who wrote the bible, to escape the horrifying fear you people have of darkness and death. Man up and accept death as a part of life. All things die, planets, suns, solar systems, galaxies, all living things, but you self-centered egotistical Theists believe you are so important that YOU get to live forever. What a weak minded, childish, approach to life. Die like a man, and not like a spoiled child who refuses to go to his room. The entire concept and you, are both PATHETIC !!

Proper usage is "contemporaneous", not "contemporary".

Paul was writing about him 20 years later and churches had even started. There was a very quick startup of the religion, and it was diverse. No conspiracy. Except to you mind.

What you call a conspiracy was just the normal result of ascendancy to power and official doctrines developed with them. You have the same going on now with your gaytheism and inclusiveness and humanism.

BTW, your gay movement took longer to take hold than the first Christian churches. That is with mass media and lots of horn tooting.

Check out the Coptic Church and its beginnings and also realize that by 70 AD Christianity was well on its way.

http://www.nationalgeographic.com/lostgospel/...

The early churches were Jewish oriented. Paul turned it into a more universal religion which was spread by the Roman Empire.

Something happened to start that all in motion. It was not just a bunch of creative writers with nothing to do.

Right, there's no such thing as talking snakes and talking donkeys, although this thread is littered with a fair number of talking asses.

My grey is very explicit about what she wants. If she wants an apple, she says apple. If she wants corn, she wants corn. Same with water, and many other things. To offer her something different than she asked for is a wasted effort.

When she was maybe 7 or 8 years old, I gave her her first drink of apple juice. Her irises contracted and expanded over and over, she took another sip, and then said "water apple". I now keep apple juice on hand mainly for her, lol!

Tell me she can't think!

No, clearly, birds do not 'talk.' They mimic, and sometimes, yes. Sometimes, they even having meaning in their calls - more meaning in bird calls, obviously, then their mimicked human sounds.
So conversing with them would resemble talking with you.
