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.

Your Joe Smith was a snake oil salesman with his Golden plates, transcribing what was supposedly on them behind a curtain. And of course like the Mythical Jesus, they eventually rose up into the sky on their way to heaven. I can't imagine what makes potentially intelligent people believe total bullshit like this, amazing!!!!
Did you know that his wife took a page or two of his translations and challenged him to translate them again.

He came up with some hair brained excuse as to either why he couldn't or why they were different.

Which is it, TwB? Is it a fact that God isn't real or is it your belief?
It's a strawman.

There are no atheist beliefs. Atheism tells you what you don't believe. It says nothing about what you do believe.

If you don't get this, there's no point in taking you any further.

It was that he was "commanded" to because the theft proved that they were "unworthy" of it. He was a great scam artist, could have easily been the one to start all of christianity, had he been born earlier.

I couldn't give a sh!t. Shall we talk about Vietnam or would you like to grow up?

I party on 4th July with our ex-USAF American friend, and do Thanksgiving with him since he's a long way from home. In return, he gets to do November 5th fireworks with us, and we get 4 days off over Easter unlike you in the US. He likes that too, even though we're all heathens.

Unlike you, he's not a cu*t, he's a great guy, and a great ambassador for the US. I'm not going to descend into anti-American abuse just because you're a hopeless POS.

I appreciate your response more than you could ever know. If it wasn’t for you Brits we wouldn’t have the grand festivities every 4th of July. We have one hell of a party every 4th and have for over 200 years thanks to you arrogant Brits.
That must have been one hell of ass kicking. You b*stards haven’t been back. That’s really a shame because we would love nothing more than to have the privilege of kicking you ass again.
So with very much appreciation, thanks for being a good loser, c*nt. Every football and baseball game all across the United States we pay tribute to you losers by singing the Star Spanked Banner. We sing it millions of times every year and salute our flag you b*stards tried to destroy.
I apologize, we love that victory more than any other in our history. Yes, we do party a bit too much on the 4th of July, but damn we enjoy it so.[tipping hat and flipping you the bird]

It's shaved off on purpose. It's the hair style some men want. There doesn't need to be hair to have a hair style.
A hairstyle, hairdo, or haircut refers to the styling of hair, usually on the human head. The fashioning of hair can be considered an aspect of personal grooming, fashion, and cosmetics, although practical, cultural, and popular considerations also influence some hairstyles.

I've never been so confused about the definition of hairstyle!

I'll concede on the grounds that shaving the head leaves short hairs in place.
It was a flawed analogy, but the others hold.
Is not collecting stamps a hobby?
Well, if you enjoy and take an interest in NOT collecting stamps, then I guess you could call it a hobby. lol.

How could you give up with the hairstyle thing? What if you wax the head?

As long as there is still hair, the possibility for hair, and a choice to keep it cut "short", baldness could be considered a hair style. I should have used "hair color" instead.

As for not collecting stamps being a hobby, nope. That would make all life experience apart from collecting stamps, a hobby, and clearly we can't call THAT a hobby. If we did, every person would be involved in an infinite amount of hobbies, like not riding asteroids, or not tying horses' tails together.

As one of those people who went door to door, within the first hour of talking to some one who invited me to talk with them, I always invited them to "experiment" on it. Anyone who has talked to Mormon missionaries for a while knows they are always trying to get you to experiment on what they are saying. The missionary discussions basically go something like this:
Missionary: "There is a God, this is what He has done and this is how you can find out if I'm telling the truth..."
Or for just about anything the missionary says...
Missionary: "Doing ..... will make you happier because you are living as God would have you live. Try it and see if you are happier."
When people see how much happier they are living the gospel, they want to do more and join the church. Conversion is based on faith promoting experiences or evidences that the convert collects.
Dear Elder Sam:

Why did it take so long to have my name removed from the LDS Membership Rolls?

In advance, thank you for trying to respond to my inquiry.

Lol, I'm going to go up to a bald guy and say, "I like your hairstyle, ;-)." If I get into trouble it's your fault.

I know, I was joking. I'm smart, remember? hehehehe

Apparently you do give a sh** or you wouldn’t have responded back.

I have a question perhaps you can answer it for me. Why is it you dumb ass Brits are missing half your teeth? I think it’s because you buttheads can’t keep your punk ass mouth shut and inevitably someone beats the hell out of you.

You have confirmed on thing, miracles still happen. You said you had a friend. Holy shitscow, that’s too much to take in one day. Let me guess he is also missing half of his teeth. There’s a cop somewhere in the UK that has a bag full of teeth and some of them are yours. And some of them are his.

Those who act like jerks will be treated likewise. You butted in with your distasteful comment and that brought you up on the scope. You need to go back to the restaurant and ask for your job back washing dishes. This time spend more time working than smoking dope in the back alley.

Abraham lied to authorities.

Isaiah had a big problem swearing.

Simon Peter, cussed like a sailor in front of Christ.

Samson was a womanizer and loved the night life.

Jacob deceived his brother.

Noah got drunk.

King David committed murder and adultery.

The Apostle Paul was a gang leader, and head of the lynch mob.

Yet despite their weakness God loved them as his children and accepted their repentance.

Romans 3:23

King James Version (KJV)

23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

God will be the judge not you pukes who don’t believe in him.
