I wonder if Topix atheists "get" impressionistic art?

Probably not. But I can see them reading something by a critic and quoting such profusely to show others how "with it" they are.

They ain't got much imagination.

<quoted text>One of the writers of the New Testament was a Medical Doctor. Did you know that Doctor?

{I don't "trust" people who base their beliefs on unsupported, or in the case of religion, non-existent evidence}.

My good Doctor, I think what you mean in the previous statement. Is that you don’t want to trust people who base their beliefs in God. If you have a heart attack Doctor and I hope you don’t by the way. You may find yourself in the care of people that do believe in God.

When you go to a restaurant my good man. The food you ate may have been prepared by people of faith. Your entire life Doctor you have been around people of faith. They have fed you, clothed you, fixed and manufactured your automobiles, flown and serviced your airplanes. Given your medicine and healthcare.

We know you don’t want to trust people of faith but you have too.
And all of those "people of faith" have to suspend those beliefs in order to do their jobs.

They have to suspend them because their actions need to be based in reality.

If I need to go to a doctor, and he starts praying over me, I'm going to another doctor.

<quoted text>Is he the one that came up with this:

Jesus cures an epileptic "lunatic" by "rebuking the devil." (Epilepsy is caused by devils.) Matthew 17:15-18

Or this?

Jesus puts his fingers in a deaf man's ears, then spits and touches his tongue. This immediately cured his deafness. Mark 7:32-35

Of course that could be explained with magic, but then there's this:

Whoever enters a pool after it is stirred up by angels will be cured of "whatsoever disease he had." John 5:4

Sadly, you said new testament, there's better "cures" in the old. Very funny stuff.
So, wet willies cute deafness.

You've been playing with ping pong balls, a bad case of flatulence and spent some time in the hot tub recently, haven't you, Dave?

I'm sure you thought it was artistic, too.

That was your impression, anyway.

The cat has been playing with the ping pong balls, I have the gas, and I shut the hot tub down for a while.

Actually, I am at a creative standstill. Everything looks the same, everything sounds the same. Ho hum. I could use some inspiration. Some direction to head off into. Or some decent entertainment.

Yes, We believe there is only one God! Everyone worships the same God but every religion uses different names for him. Your God is the same as my God, but I have a different view of him. We have a different understanding of him and a different relationship with him.
Well klemmintime,Ya see the god that everybody worships is simply our creator that lives on the tenth planet in our solar system.Yes The planet nirubi is where the sumerians live.They created human kind on earth long before the bible claims.Ya see 99% of all the storys in the old testiment are coppied from the sumerian writings.There were two brother sumerians that created man kind on earth for slave purposes only.They needed people tp mine gold in the africa gold mines.Ya see Klemm on their planet they needed gold for their planet to survive.The one brother wanted to let us know why we were made and the other brother said heck no they will rebel if they know they were designed for slavery.So they parted ways and the first brother started a group called the order of the snake,Which the bible coppied the talking snake story in eden in the bible they just tweeked it a little.So they dont require any worship or praise or 24/7 assss kissin as does the false god of the bible.The correct creators of our race are kind of embarrassed that they created us for work only.Not for paradise earth as the bible states.Look up the sumerian alien connection if you doubt me.Thank You for your time Klemmintime.

As I said paranoid conspiracy theories.

Seriously have a lot at the evidence rationally.

See this youtube video

Ancient Aliens Debunked.

Ancient Aliens Debunked is a 3 hour refutation of the theories proposed on the History Channel series Ancient Aliens. It is essentially a point by point critique of the "ancient astronaut theory" which has been proposed by people like Erich von Dniken and Zecharia Sitchin as well as many others.

um..... Why would a whale need to be on the Ark?

Logic my dear boy, pure logic

Whales and many other salt water aquatic animals cannot survive in fresh water

What comes out of the sky why its raining?

And how much fresh water would be needed to cover the earth to a depth of 8.855 kilometres?(7 metres higher then the highest mountain as specified in the babble)

I actually worked it out the other day to quote to a creationist, it was around 4,500,000,000 cubic kilometers of water which happens to be around 3.5 times the amount of water that exists on the earth. he has not responded.

And would such an amount of fresh water dilute the salt water?

And having diluted the salt water what would happen to the whales after a year emerged in water with less that 28% the salt content they need?

And yet we still have whales and sharks swimming our seas which just happen to contain slat water of enough salinity to sustain their life.

Or of course you could simply shrug your shoulders, ignore the scientific and natural necessities and say it was magic

Someone shined the light on you. Probably one of your own fellow atheist. Now youre playing this other role as a woman.

You are just freaking weird man. You know if your computer is ever taken in a search warrant. All this freaking role playing will come out in public. It will be the end of your career as you know it.

Get some professional help, talk to Oprah or somebody.

Not only are you a sexist moron but you delight in mocking medical conditions you can only be christian

Making stupid statements is a sign of a weak mind

Blindly following a god book is a sign of a weak mind

Depression is a medical condition that can have several triggers. The cause is unknown and can in no what be associated with a weak mind. It is the more intelligent person who is statistically more likely to suffer depression so we can pretty much guarantee that you will never suffer from its debilitating effects

What would possess a man to pretend to be multiple women on topix?

I just dont understand this person known as Catcher1 playing different roles as women. Flirting with you other Atheist as if hes a woman. You do realize youre talking to a fellow atheist and a man?

If one of his characters goes away. Another new one comes and takes her place. Theyre always young and attractive women so he would want you to believe. Young beautiful women have better things to do with their time.

They have boyfriends, school, work, friends and family. They dont have time to be on here with a group of Baby Boomers. Hey, if you want to talk to another man pretending to be a woman, knock yourself out.

But I find it waaaaaaaay too freaking weird.
