Being rich, poor, or broke is something that should never be brought up on here concerning the mental state of posters. Although the atheists do seem to more than others.

You can be wacko in any economic strata. Catcher and others like him are proof of that.

Using economic strata in this type of argument tend to be discouraged in religion and secular humanism both. It ain't got no class.

I'm poorer and have been poorer than any of you, and that is a fact. I will deal with those that want to make a joke of that later.

Be nice.

Goodnight.

The wealth of the populace is evidence to support or debunk any claim of how well off society is today. Thus, it is relevant to the topic which was being discussed. If you don't like it, don't post your status, but your sudden opposition to it suggests that you are probably less wealthy than most of the homeless in Seattle.

<quoted text>Ahhh..... rreminds me of a song by Skyhooks; Living in the 70's
"I feel a little crazy
I feel a little strange
Like I'm in a pay phone
Without any change
I feel a little edgy
I feel a little weird
I feel like a schoolboy
thats's grown a beard
I'm livin' in the 70's
Eatin' fake food under plastic trees
My face gets dirty just walkin' around
I need another pill to calm me down
I feel a bit nervous
I feel a bit mad
I feel like a good time that's never been had
I feel a bit fragile
I feel a bit low
Like I learned the right lines
But I'm on the wrong show
I'm livin' in the 70's
I feel like I lost my keys
Got the right day but I got the wrong week
And I get paid for just bein' a freak
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
I feel a little insane
I feel a bit dazed
My legs are shrinkin'
And my roof's been raised
I feel a little mixed up
I feel a little queer
I feel like a barman that can't drink a beer
I'm livin' in the 70's
I've just caught another disease
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
Eatin' fake food under plastic trees
My face gets dirty just walkin' around
I need another pill to calm me down
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
I'm livin' in the 70's
I feel like I lost my keys
Got the right day but I got the wrong week
And I get paid for just bein' a freak"
Things have got way worse these days LOL
I love 70's music. But part of me wished I'd have grown up in the 40's so that I could be a grumpy old fart in the 70's

Name one time where things were better anywhere in the world during all scientifically proven known history. Just one.
That's impossible to answer. It's all relative.

It also depends on what you mean by "better".

Cop-out, you could not debunk my assertion so now you're making excuses as to why you opposed it. Just admit you were wrong, you cannot demonstrate why this time is any worse for any place in the world, and you cannot oppose the assertion that this is the best time in all of known history to be alive. Until you can, you should avoid making any assertion to the contrary.

I dunno, Dave. I've been pretty damn poor... When I was a kid, my family of 6 lived in a broke down, converted school bus. No electricity, no running water....

This Redneck left his roots back there.

Actually, it's pretty one sided, I spend more time correcting your stupidity and pointing out your baseless assertions than "banter."

But you said that now is the best time to live. I think the starving Americans would disagree with you.
