Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Republicans who were angered to learn on Wednesday that the former I.R.S. official Lois Lerner had referred to them as “crazies” and “assholes” responded later in the day by voting to sue the President of the United States.

“Calling us crazy assholes is insulting, derogatory, and beneath contempt,” House Speaker John Boehner told reporters.“And now if you’ll excuse me, ladies and gentlemen, I have to go sue Obama.”

Determined to burnish their reputation as extremely sane people who are not assholes at all, House Republicans in their lawsuit accuse the President of “coldly and arrogantly seizing power granted to him by the United States Constitution.”

The lawsuit alleges that “having signed 181 executive orders to date, Barack Obama seems intent on chasing the records of such notorious renegades as Dwight Eisenhower (484) and Theodore Roosevelt (1,081).”

The number of executive orders is a red herring.

The issue is the content.

Time is a constructive concept. You cannot trip over it.
It is a way to catologue, or order physical events, and units of quantity are assigned in linear fashion.
You don't see past time, or any time, but the difference in past time and future time is that it is detected, recorded, or remembered in it's association with events.
If you want to claim future time exists, you may present the physical future events with which you detected such time.
If you lived in the future and came back here to provide that for us, I suspect you could make lots of money on the movie rights.
Hollywood loves fantasies like the one you live n.
Relativistic thinking requires the anticipation of future time , as does all cosmological event and the reasoning is solid as a rock.
You can whine and cry about it all you like, but if you exclude future time, you must exclyde past time, and you are only left with now.

But now is gone, as soon as I write it, and in the future you will tread this.
Just as sure as day turns to night.. and then.........another day.

I agree with you on parts.
Romney chose an excellent running mate for the economic times we were in.
If you have to pick a token minority to win, what's the point.
Romney is the best qualified republican candidate since Reagan, and likely would have been a very competent president. He proved his grasp of issues dwarfed that of Obama.
The people chose. And they deserve the result.
Romney was and is more qualified than the Jr Senator from the corrupt political State of Illinois. And Paul Ryan is a very good conservative man. But he is a representative that is too cheap to rent an apartment in Washington so he sleeps in his office closet. That scares the hell out of liberals and independents.

The Paul Ryan decision is what cause Romney to fall short. The next Republican nominee has to be able to win over the hearts of independents and Hispanics. If you want to be the President of the United States you have to show America the Republican party is not just a bunch of good ole rich white boys.

50% of the American population happens to be women. And women do think different than men. But there are women that can be President and should have a shot at the Presidency or Vice-Presidency. My good topix friend Romney blew it and I really don’t think he can get the momentum again.

If Romney would have asked Dr Condoleezza Rice or a Marco Rubio to be his running mate we wouldn’t be in this quagmire. These are just a couple of names he could have asked. And Republicans will lose again if we don’t diversify at the top of the ticket.

Who cares what race a person is or their sex as long as they have good solid qualifications and can lead this country back to prosperity and morality. And this nation is morally bankrupt. Our Dear President Obama has done nothing to make this nation stronger. I’m so sick and tired of liberals and their liberal inept leadership.

California is in the news everyday. It’s on fire, busted up, crumbling, broke, sliding into the abyss, running out of water, killing one another but hey, they have gay marriage. And according to the liberals that makes everything ok.

The future arriving is only a hope or an expectation. It doesn't exist until it happens, then it is now. Even a happening event has a future aspect to it. That rock you see headed for your head may or may not reached its assumed destination for a variety of physical reasons. It may even hit an infinite wall along the way.

Vyllshit , the future, can be manipulated by acceleration.

There is a curve involved, this future event ,( arrival ) is directly related to the travel time (acceleration) between the two points . At c the event is simultaneous due to length contraction.
But the future point that intersects is directly related to the travel; time between them.
This is very rudimentary sht , and tyvm for being so very rudimentary.

The event is created by many present paths converging.

You are too simple minded and anxious to believe in magic to understand that.

Time and it's passage doesn't require anything, but acceleration alters the passage if time.

You are correct.
Infinity is an abstraction. It represents nothing in reality.
It is not even actually represented in transfinite math. It's only symbolically represented.
Nothing physical can be infinite.

Try this experiment to see if there’s a God.

Before the next storm that blows through your area. Give your dental x-rays to a close family member and tell them to hold on to them.

Then when a good rain storm is in your immediate area. Put a little salt in each one of your shoes. Put them back on and make sure they’re snug. Then traverse to the highest hill in your area while its raining and lightning.

Hold up your middle finger as high as .possible and say,“There’s no God.” Say it three times as loud as you can.

Now this is where the dental x-rays come in handy. Your family members will know what to do.

You should remember that any religious building, church, mosque, Temple or synagogue sporting a lightning rod shows a startling lack of conviction and confidence.

When lightning strikes a church and burns it down why is it rebuilt? Wasn't this God's will to destroy it.?

You theists are truly hilarious and unintentionally funny but too deluded to comprehend why we find you amusing.

Religion is a disease. It is born of fear; it compensates through hate in the guise of authority, revelation. Religion, enthroned in a powerful social organization, can become incredibly sadistic. No religion has been more cruel than the Christian.
